13 Characteristics of Kings and Lord by Dr. Myles Munroe (The Kingdom Concept & Principle of King and Lord) 

It is impossible to understand the message of the Kingdom fully without understanding the concept of Kings since the essence of every Kingdom is centered on the King.

In this post, I will be highlighting the 13 characteristics of kings, which also apply to God, as I have learned from Dr. Myles Munroe. Before we continue, I want to give you access to the source of all the materials I share here so you can take a faster and deeper study by yourself. Watch out for it at the end of this post.

Who Is A King by Dr. Myles Munroe?

According to Dr. Myles Munroe, a king is the central component of a kingdom and embodies the essence of the kingdom. The king is the ultimate source of authority in the kingdom and through this authority establishes the kingdom. The sovereignty of the king is inherent in his royal authority.

Characteristics of A King and Lord by Dr. Myles Munroe

1. A king is never voted into power 

Because a Kingdom is not a democracy, a king is not voted into power. There is no consensus needed by the citizens to establish the authority of the King. God our king is not voted into power.

2. A king’s authority is by birthright

Rather than being a product of a vote, the authority of the King is by birthright. Every king comes with that destiny and nothing can be done to stop the king from being king. God also is naturally King. His very nature of being God has made Him king, there’s nothing to be done about it.

3. A king cannot be voted out of power

Because no one votes a king into power, no one can vote him out. No one can dethrone God or question His actions. God’s reign is an everlasting reign regardless of who supports or what anyone feels about it. 

4. A king’s word is law in his territory

Whatever a king says becomes law. Again because a Kingdom is not a democracy, there are no lawmakers. God is the only lawmaker. The moment He gives any command or decree, it becomes a law and even God becomes subject to it.

His spoken will determines the jurisdiction of operation in the Kingdom and the measure of what is acceptable and unacceptable.

5. A king personally owns everything in his domain 

Every king is automatically lord. Lord is not a religious word. It simply means “owner” as in landlord. A king is the owner of everything and everyone in his kingdom. Any resource any citizen of the Kingdom possesses is under their custody for management. 

As citizens of God’s Kingdom, everything we have is given to us by God and we must manage them according to His desires. Owners and rebels in God’s Kingdom.

6. A decree of the king is unchanging

Once a king gives a decree and it becomes law, it cannot be changed, not even by the King. So before God says anything, He first weighs the implication of it to see if it is something He can live up to and wants to abide forever. God’s word is settled forever.

Because of this, you can be assured that His promises to you in the Bible cannot be shaken—they must come to pass.

7. The king chooses who will be a citizen of his kingdom 

Citizens don’t choose to be citizens of a Kingdom. It is solely the decision of the King who is also the Lord. In God’s Kingdom, He has sent out an invitation to everyone and He makes all that accept his invitation citizens of His  Kingdom. The Bible says many are called (through God’s invitation) but few are chosen (who accept the invitation).

8. The king embodies the government of his kingdom 

The government of the kingdom is the king. He is the executive, judiciary, and legislature of the government. God embodies the government of His Kingdom through the Trinity — the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

9. The presence of the king is the presence of his entire kingdom authority 

Because the king is the government, wherever the king is, the entire authority of the kingdom is. Whatever the king stands against, every authority in the Kingdom is against. There is no other authority in the Kingdom outside the authority of the King. The king can however delegate authority to citizens for special assignments. We are ambassadors, representing God with delegated authority.

10. The king measures his wealth by the wealth of his property 

The measure of the king’s glory is by how much He possesses. This is the reason why kingdoms continue to colonize other kingdoms— to increase the jurisdiction and possession of the king.

12. The home of the king expresses his nature 

Wherever a king lives must reflect his glory. The home of the king affects his reputation. When God lives in you, your life reflects His glory.

13. The name of the king is the essence of his power 

The name of a king carries and establishes his power. Wherever his name is mentioned, it is as though he were present. Disregard for the king’s name is disregard for the king. The name of Jesus establishes the authority of God. Calling the name of Jesus in any situation carries the same power as God being present.

The concept of king is only one of the 26 concepts and components of the Kingdom of God.
