King of kings

Revelations 19:11        And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, ‘King of Kings and Lord of Lords.’   

This phrase King of Kings is used 6 times in the Bible.  Once it is applied to God the Father, three times to earthly kings and twice to reference Jesus.  It is always used to attribute absolute sovereignty over their realms.  It indicates that someone has power to exercise absolute dominion over all in that realm.  In relation to Jesus, this realm is all of creation. 

Jesus is the King of Kings, and there is no higher authority.  His reign over all things is absolute.  Not even death has dominion over Him.  Ephesians 1:21-23 says: ‘far above all principality and power and might and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.  And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.’

Isaiah 53:10-12 reminds us that this King of Kings, became the suffering servant and He did this for us.
