Jesus is a King (in the line of David, as foretold) and he did say, "My Kingdom is not of this world." Many do not wish to acknowledge his kingship, for in so doing, one must also acknowledge their utter dependency on God for atonement. For Jesus came as the promised Savior to atone for our fallen sinful condition. However, it is easier for humans to try and save themselves, rather than humble themselves, before the King of kings and Lord of lords. In the Lord's grace and mercy, he did what you and I could not do for ourselves. And that is reconcile us back to God by removing the sin barrier. Remember what the LORD said. "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one can come to the Father, except through Me."
