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!" In Proverbs 6:20-7:27!

He Is The Obedient Son
He Died And Rose His Work Is Done
His Beauty Stands Second To None
So Turn From Sin And To Him Run
He'll Capture You And Your Heart Stun!

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

He Will Fill You With Love
The Greatest Husband From Above
In Whose Presence Is Delight
And Pleasures Of An Epic Height
And Not Just Short Love All One Night
But Joys Eternal Out Of Sight
Your Heart He'll Ravish And Seduce
And Holy Longings Pure Produce!

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

"That's My King!" In Proverbs 6:1-19!

Jesus Christ Is Our Security
Though He Was Born In Obscurity
He Abolished Impurity
And Rose To Maturity
As Our Everlasting Surety
To Make Us Clean Purity!

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

Jesus Christ Worked Hard Without Tire
Did All Things Well God Would Require
Died On That Cross To Save From The Fire
Then Rose Again To Never Retire
And Now He's Our Passionate, Holy Desire!

That's my King!

Jesus Christ Is Worth The Most
To Everlasting Joy Our Host
For All God Hates That's Foul And Gross
He Punished In His Son Utmost
So In The Cross Alone We Boast!

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

"That's My King!" Who's The Christmas Celebration, The Incarnation, And The Holy Causation Of Our Great Salvation!

He's the Incarnation
The God on earth Visitation
The God-Man Summation without bifurcation
Savior of every nation
The "all-of-life" Foundation
Without Whom there's no salvation
Who saves from condemnation
And is worthy of our most faithful dedication, infinite admiration, and eternal appreciation!

That's my King!

Through the virgin birth
He came down to earth
He fills with mirth
By granting rebirth
Of joy in Him there's not the slightest dearth
For He Himself is of infinite worth!

He's fully God and fully man
According to God's perfect plan
He saves sinners from every clan
His mercy has no bounds or span
From Bhutan to Japan
Iran to Sudan, or Kazakhstan
He's the only saving Man
Who doing all things good – He can!

He humbled Himself to be born in a manger
Though all around He was surrounded by danger
To the likeness of sinful flesh He's no longer a stranger
But lived and died to be the sin for righteousness Exchanger
He rose up from the grave to be the only great world Changer
He'll live in you to be your whole life's Rearranger!

That's my King!

Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
Who comes with healing in His wing
All by Himself He's the greatest Thing
He's the everlasting Spring
Who alone can make your heart ring
To you salvation He will bring
If to Him by faith alone you'll cling!

Let every heart prepare Him room
He's God come from the virgin's womb
All sin and death He will consume
He saves from wrath and judgment doom
He died on Friday – there was gloom
But Sunday rose up from the tomb
Now He's our everlasting Groom
So trust in Him, He'll make you bloom!

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

For unto us a Child is born
Of true salvation, He's the Horn
He'll make His people cease to mourn
Joy to the world He will adorn
He came to save from sin and porn
By being Kinged with crown of thorn
In His body sins were borne
On that cross He was forlorn
He took on all our sin and scorn
At His death the curtain's torn
Yet He rose just as was sworn
So those who trust could be reborn!

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns
He came to save from all our pains
From every sin He'll break those chains
If you'll seek to die like grains
Then you'll find your fruit remains
In holiness you'll make great gains!

He came to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found below
Though your sins are red you know
He died to make them white as snow
He took upon Himself your woe
And now your clean from head to toe
Behind His back your sins He'll throw
Just trust in Him, nothing you owe
In your heart good things He'll sow
Through His Spirit you will grow!

That's my King!

He shall save His people from their sins
That's were Matthew starts and ends
Trust in Him - your life begins
He's the Warrior-King Who wins
He makes His enemies God's friends!

Immanuel is His glorious name
He's "God with us!" we must proclaim
In the manger our weakness He became
Go tell it on the mountain without shame
May this good news set our world aflame
On that cross He took our blame
Forever banished all our shame
And rose from the grave all death to tame
The world will never be the same
Sadness for joy He'll reclaim
For the glorious fame of His beautiful name!

That's my King!  That's my King!

My King is more precious than more than 999 trillion universes of gold!
And every other good gift in this life compared to Him is worth less than a penny!

He's more valuable than the most precious gold and the most priceless diamond!
His value far exceeds 999 trillion worlds with all their riches and pleasures!

The forbidden woman will bring you down
Though she wears a beautiful gown

And bring you down low to the ground
And even lower further down
Because in flames of hell you'll drown
So turn and trust the Son – be found!
For He will never be brought down

In darkness to the tomb went down
Then rose – was given every crown
To clothe you in a clean, bright gown
All the devil's work shutdown

Christ Is All In Preaching!

Oh to be the most Christ exalting preacher you could ever be! I want to pant for Him, to lust for Him, to long for Him, to delight in Him, to be satisfied with Him, to be obsessed with Him, to be captivated by Him, to be fascinated by Him, to be in awe of Him, to be preoccupied with Him, to be ravished by Him in the pulpit and on the street! Oh Father, you must grant it! For Jesus' sake!
