 I noticed in the news lately two persons that have claims to royalty and royalties.

Queen Elizabeth - Platinum jubilee , surely she is the queen of England. A dominant elegant looking lady that has inherited her royal title from past generations of the house of Windsor. In England there is always a house , the house of Lords, the house of Parliament , the house of Commons just to name a few. Each of the royal lineages have a house, house of York - house of Windsor, house of Hanover etc.. So, we have under each ruling house servants , those that are knighted and a whole trail of riches and lands. Those include castles , princes , princesss , Earls, Dukes and clergy that are under the royals. We also have whole countries under the royals , England, Australia , Canada just to name a few.
 How did the royals separate themselves from the peasants and even more so, get the peasants to pay them royaties and taxes. Obviously there was a vote or a power grab of some sort and some got left out - others became royals. Realizing this is just an earthly realm nonetheless it is a realm. The royals had power not only over lands and wealth but life and death. Even Jesus recognized the power of Caesar , render unto Caesar the things that are Caesars, unto God the things that are Gods. Amazing statement not one of rebellion or conflict to overthrow the roman civil authority.
 Jesus did not care much about earthly power or wealth as some may preach. He was more concerned about the spiritual, knowing all things will pass away. Did he fullfill the prophecy of the King , whose house did Jesus reign over. This is a question that many jewish scholars use to deny Jesus as the messiah. We have the Lord of lords , King of kings and all he had was a crown of thorns. Yes- what a crown it was , no gold or jewels or glory. Jesus represented not this world but many realms , dimensions of various creations not just this one. Although his crown was not a glorious one - it represented a willingness to suffer for His followers . To take their judgement - to be an eternal King of kings. Many will say who would want a life of suffering, who would want to follow Jesus. I would - knowing also this life will pass and believing in eternity that we have eternal essence, character. Yes- I have followed Christ through suffering and also the rewards of a kingdom of peace and tranquility that many will never know.

Creflo Dollar- In the news for an encounter with his daughter who had rebelled. Not so much a royal in the sense of the house of Windsor but a charismatic preacher that can easily covince thousands - he can deliver them from poverty and sin. Using the good book, the holy bible found a formula for wealth. Now you might say that is greedy or sinfull but really not much different than any other religious money machine. Why suffer , why be in poverty - claim your piece of heaven now, that is the message. I really cannot find a reason to dislike Creflow, he has imagination , faith and power that comes with wealth. He did not inherit anything from the house of a lord, but claims for himself a piece of happiness on earth. He might just even be happy , I do not know. What I do know is he has found out how to collect royalties no different than any pope or King or queen of this earth. He learned to use fear , he learned to use his wits and even made it scriptual. When fear does not work they use words of love. Love me because - God loves you and I am His servant therefore deserving of glory.
 Not sure if God cares so much about sharing money , he is more powerful than the FED and can just create more things if desired. God is spirit - God is light  what does that have to do with men. That is why Jesus did not care about Caesars wealth or money - give it to him, let Caesar collect taxes and royalties. God is not about taking from the poor and the peasants. Although some will disagree , they will say they are ultimately the authority of God, their wealth is evidence. Tell that to the real Jesus , Jesus said there would be many false Christs and many would speak in His name. I am telling you many are charismatic, many have a holy claim but Jesus does not need your earthly treasure, hold on to it. Give to the poor directly or make an effort to help the elderly or helpless hungry children. Stay away from  those that would swindle your last dollar. There is nothing spiritual or nothing in the realm of light about giving to an ego maniac or self proclaimed royal. God will forgive you for not being stupid.

 Jesus King of kings , Lord of lords - there is no other.
