My eyes have seen the King

Posted by appolus on September 16, 2018

The time has come to glorify the king. While the watchmen have sounded the alarm and rightly so, we must also declare victory. What is the victory we declare? What great battle have we witnessed and now seek to tell others about? “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things.(Isa 52:7)

This vision of the beautiful feet is the vision of one who runs from the scene of battle, across mountains, to the city that waits for news. (2 Sam 18:26) If your King has went out to fight the enemy that has surely come to destroy you, can you imagine the anticipation of those left behind wondering how the battle went? This is a matter of life and death. If the King is defeated then the enemy is coming and he will destroy everything in his path. You will lose everything, you world will be ripped apart and your heart will faint with fear. So, when the runner comes and announces salvation, meaning victorious deliverance, there is a spontaneous reaction of utter joy and celebration. This is the “good news,” this is the “glad tidings,” they have been waiting to hear. How many times is genuine salvation coupled with utter joy and spontaneous celebration in the heart of one who has been delivered from destruction? It is the mark of genuine Christianity down through the ages. It is what separates genuine Christianity from a mental assent to an abstract truth.

So when the messenger comes, they want to know from him “did you actually see the victory,did you see it with your own eyes or did someone just tell you that our King won?” When he declares that yes, he actually saw it with his own eyes , that he is an eye-witness, then the people can truly rejoice because they know that the runner has actually saw it and it is no mere second-hand account. This is what gives the runner power. Today, we desperately need the beautiful feet of those who have personally witnessed victorious deliverance. Those who have seen the victory at Calvary realized in their own lives. We need those whose own “eyes have seen the King. A people who can say that they have “saw the Lord sitting on a Throne , high and lifted up,” and know that “His train fills the temple.” A people who have heard the saints of Heaven cry Holy, Holy , Holy, is the Lord of Hosts, and know that “the whole earth is filled with His glory. A people whose doorposts moved, and their whole house is shaken by the glory and the splendor and the majesty of our King, and whose house is filled with the smoke, of His presence.

Only eye-witnesses to His glory will suffice as the days of history draw to a close. To tell others a story that you have been told is not good enough. Can you say with the prophet, my eyes have seen the King? Have you experienced the fullness of God? Has your whole house,your whole being, been shaken by His majesty and His splendor? Is your feet beautiful? Have you actually witnessed anything? When you speak of the glory of the risen King, are you merely re-telling a story? Or have you actually experienced the glory of the risen King? You see, the eye-witness actually has power and that power is demonstrated in a transformed life. The mere confessor, the cultural Christian, the one who is called Christian by accident of natural birth will be no different from the world. He does not speak with authority, the authority of one who “knows,” Jesus. His is a mere philosophy. He will be changed by the world and subject to its whims and cultures. Cultural winds will toss him like a wave in the sea. He will be unstable in all of his ways for his feet are not set upon the foundations of the victory of Jesus at Calvary.

The eye-witness stands upon the solid Rock of Christ and the victory that was given to him transforms his life. He has, with his own eyes, seen the victory. He has ran on ahead to tell everyone. He knows who is coming. He lies in bed at night and sleeps soundly knowing that every minute that passes brings His Lord ever closer. He sleeps in peace, he knows the victory is won.”Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, with their voices they shall sing together, for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord brings back Zion.“(Isa52:8) So, let me ask the question, what exactly are you a witness too? Are your feet beautiful? Did you actually witness the defeat of the enemy? Can the people trust you? Do you have the power of the eye-witness? Do you have an unshakeable faith because you have seen the King? Those who have encountered God in salvation await His return with all of their hearts. His victory lights up their hearts and lives and the people who dwell in darkness see the light. They may come to the light or they may run from it , they might try to destroy the light, but they cannot deny the light. The reality of our salvation and transformed lives is the light of the world and it bears witness to Jesus.
