Elvis Shmelvis, Jesus is King.
When Jesus ascended, he ascended not just to heaven. He didn't just mosey back into the throne room and say, "Hey Dad, I'm hooo-ooome. What's for dinner?" He ascended TO something. He rose victorious. It is finished. All that he needed to accomplish was done! He ascended to the right hand of God. He ascended to the Throne! He sits, because his work is done.
HE. RULES. NOW.
i might be going out on a limb here, but the thousand years is now. Jesus already rules. That is plain. He is already dismantling the world order. Turning things on their head. God is now making his enemies a footstool. Bringing all rule, authority and power under him. The last enemy to be conquered is death. The day is coming and rapidly approaching. God has sent out his invitations to the banquet in his Son's honor! Press everyone, beat the hedges, hit the highway, shake the tree, find the lame, the crippled, the blind and the poor, press them to accept the gracious invitation God has sent through you! It's going to be one heck of a party, it'd be hell to miss it!
