For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

"That's My King!" Whose Years Have No End Though In Death He'd Condescend To Show A Love You Can't Comprehend!

Hebrews 1:12:  But You are the same, and Your years will have no end.

2018 has come and ends
But from eternity past His life extends
And unlike your resolution that toward failure tends
He always accomplishes everything He intends
On Him your life and hope depends
On that cross He became what offends
So that sinners to God through Christ commends
And all their evil He suspends
For He rose up to make Divine amends
Against all your enemies He defends
And for your faith always contends
As your only Friend of friends
Whose love and beauty all things transcends!

That's my King! Do you know Him?!

He's the same yesterday, today, and forever
He fulfills with perfection every endeavor
If you believe in Him, He'll save whosoever
For on that cross His Father did sever
But He rose from the tomb to die again never
In the new year may He be your greatest treasure!

That's my King!

Crown Him the LORD of all your years
He owns your past and future fears
He'll take away your lonely tears
Turn them into praising cheers
And make sure sadness disappears
He reigns o'er all your earthly spheres
And every sin He paid and clears
His tender, loving, attentive ears
Your cries for mercy always hears
He cares much more than all your peers
We hope and pray His coming nears
When He returns our joy appears
As we crown Him the LORD of years!

That's my King! I wonder if you know Him in this new year?!

All your times are in His gracious, sovereign hand
Each event at His perfectly timed command
Even when you don't fully understand
Nothing He does is done unplanned
We know His plans for you are grand
He's told us in His Book firsthand
"All things for good!" His Word will stand
His glory through your life expand
All your enemies He'll withstand
And hold you in His loving hand!

That's my King!

May delight in Him be your resolution
He's worthy for us to endure persecution
He's the only true solution
To all earth's sin pollution
Not the constitution
Or other government revolution
For on that cross He embraced execution
And took our sinful, godless prostitution
By enduring God's wrath by substitution
Where He took God's angry retribution
In order to make full restitution
To save us from all prosecution
He rose up from death and dissolution
To establish His Bride – the Church institution!

That's my King! Do you know my King today?!

He's the center of all joy and celebration
So stay up late and praise the Incarnation
Of His worship there shall be no cessation
For He's the Lamb Who was slain to save from damnation
And grant us such a great salvation
Winning for Himself everlasting admiration!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" In Isaiah 9:6!

For Unto Us A Child Is Born
The Son Who Is Salvation's Horn
He's Mighty God Whom We Would Mourn
For He'd Be Killed His Body Torn
The Prince Of Peace Sinners Would Scorn
Yet Then He Rose Crushed Every Thorn
Now He's Our Joy As God Has Sworn
The Everlasting LORD Was Born!

That's my King! That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Alone Loved His Neighbor As He Loved Himself!

Jesus Greatest Laws Defined
Love God With All Your Heart And Mind
And Love Your Neighbor As Entwined
This Love We've Failed To Give We're Blind
We've Hated God And All Mankind
But Jesus Loved Our Wicked Kind
For Us He Died And Was Maligned
Then Rose By Death Was Not Confined
So Now We Love All Groups Combined
And Leave Our Ethnic Hate Behind
For Christ Is All In Him We Find
Our Joy And Love As He Designed!

That's my King! That's my King!

"That's My King!" Whom We Call On To Keep His Promises!

In Jesus' Name We Pray And Call
He Is Our God And LORD Of All
He Died To Take Our Curse And Gall
Then Rose Alive Reversed The Fall
Call On His Name Both Great And Small
He'll Save Your Soul And Be Your All!

That's my King! That's my King!

"That's My King!" In Isaiah 40!

Jesus Comforts We Proclaim
He's LORD And God Who Took Our Shame
He Died And Rose To Highest Fame
His Word Shall Last He Overcame
Wait On Him New Strength To Claim
His Might And Power None Can Tame
Behold Your God And Praise His Name!

That's my King! That's my King!

"That's My King!" In Proverbs 15!

The Softest Answer Jesus Gave
"Father Forgive" He Died To Save
Forsaken Son Who's Made A Slave
On Him God's Wrath Crashed Like A Wave
But Then He Rose And Crushed The Grave
Now With Soft Answers We Behave!

That's my King!

Jesus' Tongue Did Knowledge Spread
He's Wise, Our God, Our Living Head
By Fools To Slaughter He Was Led
And For Our Foolish Sins He Bled
Our Wicked Words Had Left Him Dead
But Then He Rose And On Death Tread
Now Pure, Wise, Righteous Words We Spread!

That's my King! Do you know Him?!

Jesus' Eyes Watch Every Place
All Hearts Are Open To His Face
The Righteous Ones Their Prayers Embrace
Far From All Wicked Men He'll Race
He Died And Rose To Save By Grace
Our Sins Are Gone He Left No Trace
And Soon All Death He Will Erase
With Mercy All Our Days He'll Chase!

That's my King!

Jesus Has All Authority To Command
The Father's Discipline Lovingly Planned
Parent's Must Learn From The Father's Hand
May Righteousness, Wisdom, And Holiness Stand
Christ Died To Meet Justice's Demand
And Rose To Win The Victory Grand
So Parents' Love Will Grow – Expand
Christ's Love We've Witnessed Now Firsthand!

That's my King!

Jesus' Delight Was His Father's Instruction
He Heeded His Word And Turned From Seduction
Though Perfect He'd Bear Our Severe Destruction
He Died And Then Rose To Start Reconstruction
And Make Us Like Him – Holy Lives In Production
So Listen To Him And Obey God's Instruction!

That's my King! I wonder if you know Him today?!

Christ Our Treasure Is Good And Right
Yet On Him Fell Our Sinful Plight
He Died And Rose In Pow'r And Might
His Sacrifice Our LORD's Delight
Now Hate The Bribe And Love The Light
Our Prayers He'll Hear Our Cries Invite!

That's my King!

Jesus' Sorrows Make Hearts Glad       
For Sinners Crushed And Counted Bad
Our Sin So Great His Father's Mad
He Took The Mad And Made God Glad   
Propitiation Heals What's Sad
He Is Risen Now We're Clad
With Righteousness And Joy Add!

That's my King!

Jesus' Little Was The Best
He Feared The LORD With Zeal And Zest
Yet Trouble Came And Wrath Oppressed
For Us He Died That We'd Be Blessed
Then Rose To Show He Passed The Test
Now In His Righteousness We're Dressed
So Humble Wisdom Is Our Quest!

That's my King! That's my King!

"That's My King!" Of Flexin' Every Skin Complexion!

God is the ultimate One Who's flexin' our complexion
Creator of all skin tones with a deep love and affection
All our different shades highlight His beauty and perfection
From one man all created in God's image His reflection
Every tribe and tongue and nation we were chosen by election
Jesus died and rose for all who trust in Him and His protection
He's perfection Who needed no correction but took our rejection
To stop our insurrection, fix our imperfection, and give us an everlasting God connection
So now our lives have a new direction and we praise Him for every single skin complexion
And above all we're flexin' the Son and His death and resurrection!

That's my King! That's my King!
