How does Christ effect the office of King?

Active
Because Jesus Christ is Shiloh, our world is under judgment for refusing to acknowledge Him as Lord and Savior.
These troubled times should not distress or trouble us: they are evidences that Shiloh is at work, shaking the things which can be shaken, so that the unshakeable may alone remain.
He will overturn, overturn our humanistic world, shatter its pride, autonomy, and complacency, and He shall reign in both judgment and in peace.
It is He and not the world who is our peace.
In the troubled world of His birth, the glorious song of the heavenly host was “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:14).
The meaning of this peace, our Savior-King declares, is Himself. “For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition” between God and man (Eph. 2:14).
By means of His grace and law-word, all things are to be brought into and under His peace. His strong and calming word to us is this:
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).
(R. J. Rushdoony, Faith and Action, Vol. 1, p. 10)
