The Majesty of Jesus.

Suddenly a man from the multitude cried out, saying, “Teacher, I implore You, look on my son, for he is my only child. And behold, a spirit seizes him, and he suddenly cries out; it convulses him so that he foams at the mouth; and it departs from with great difficulty, bruising him. So I implored Your disciples to cast it out, but they could not.”

Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here.” And as he was still coming, the demon threw him down and convulsed him. Then Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, healed the child, and gave him back to his father. And they were all amazed at the majesty of God….Luke 9:38-43.


Majesty, megaleiotes; Strong’s #3168. Sublimity, grandeur, glory, magnificence, splendor, superbness, greatness. In Acts 19:27, Demetrius the silversmith expressed a fear (based on a loss of income) that the preaching of Paul would destroy the magnificence of the goddess Diana. In Luke 9:43 and in 2Peter 1:16 the word magnifies the Lord and His far-surpassing greatness.

    There are so many words in the English language that we use to try and define our God. None of them are good enough. The word majesty is perhaps one of the best.

    A wonderful worship song goes like this:

    “Majesty, worship His majesty, unto Jesus be all glory, power, and praise.
    “Majesty, kingdom authority, Jesus who died, now glorified, King of all Kings.”

    I’ve only noted parts of the song, but it is great when a large group of Christians are singing it from their hearts.
