When a King Sheds Blood, a Kingdom Is Established

As a young learner of history, I have observed that bloodshed is always involved in founding a new nation, kingdom, or state. Figuratively speaking, every kingdom or nation in current existence was founded on bloodshed.

Throughout the history, we learn about kings and statesmen who shed great amount of blood of their enemies in building their nations. This reminds me of a kingdom which, like any other kingdom, is also founded on a bloodshed - but in a unique way.

You see, kings and political leaders establish their kingdoms by shedding the blood of their enemies. But this kingdom that I am talking about was established on a different way; for it was established when its founding King shed His own blood for the salvation of His people.

And so from thereon until forevermore, His kingdom reigns in the hearts of men and women who love Him. And the King's Name is Jesus of Nazareth - the Son of God and Rightful Ruler over all the kings on earth (Revelation 1:5).

"But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels to suffer death, crowned with glory and honor, so that He, by the grace of God, should experience death for everyone."
- Hebrews 2:9, MEV
