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!" On Him Alone You Should Lean In Him Is Wisdom Seen For He Died To Make You Clean And Grant You Peace Serene!

Don't be wise in your own eyes
Because often you tell yourself lies
Of every imaginable size
Which leads you to compromise
The perfect wisdom God supplies
He doesn't want your demise
So He sent His Son to die and rise
To save you from sin's compromise
And grant you highs beyond sin's lies
For He's your everlasting Prize!

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

Don't lean on what you understand
Your Godless thoughts are sinking sand
Every one so canned and bland
Compared to mighty God so grand
Just lean on His everlasting hand
His Son met every demand
He died and rose just as He planned
So you might obey His every command
And all the wicked sin withstand
Then He will all your joy expand
You'll finally see His face firsthand!

That's my King!

Jesus on His Father leaned
And to His side by prayer He cleaved
Great joy, wisdom, power received
To do His perfect will achieved
Died and left all sad, bereaved
But rose all fear and tears relieved
Lost sinners reconciled, retrieved
Salvation for all who've believed
To give a joy beyond conceived!

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

"That's My King!" Whom You Should Trust He Died For Sinners Filled With Lust And Rose To Make His People Just Through His Spirit Hearts Combust To Burn For Him This Is A Must!

The world is falling apart
It's been falling apart ever since sin entered the world
But we trust in the Lord our God!

The world is falling apart
Authority in the highest places is being abused
Good is being called evil and evil is being called good
Evil is being celebrated and rejoiced in
But we trust in the Lord our God!

The world is falling apart
Racist people are still hating and killing
Radical Islamic terrorists are killing and raping
People are shooting up movie theaters
Police brutality is harming the helpless
Pastors are disqualifying themselves from ministry through sexual immorality
But we trust in the Lord our God!

The world is falling apart
False doctrine is running wild in the church
Money is loved more than God
False prophets are proclaiming a false Jesus
Many pastors are lovers of money rather than lovers of God
But we trust in the Lord our God!

The world is falling apart
The White House is arrayed in rainbow colors
Sexual immorality is celebrated all over our land
Those who stand for truth may suffer greatly in the near future
But we trust in the Lord our God!

The world is falling apart
Planned Parenthood is dismembering babies
And selling their hearts, heads, livers, and lungs
Children are being enslaved, used, and abused all around the world
The poor are starving
Unreached people don't have access to the Gospel
Our neighbors in Olney still don't know Jesus
But we trust in the Lord our God!

The world is falling apart
We are falling apart because of our sin
The greatest enemy you face is your own sin
Sin separates you from God
Sin leads to death
Sin messes up your life
Sin will send you to hell forever
God will send you to hell forever because of your sin
But there is a sin bearer named Jesus Who came to save us from our sin!
Jesus paid it all – all to Him I owe!
Jesus died on that cross for sinners and rose from the dead so that you might be saved!
Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved!
And so we trust in the Lord our God!

The world is falling apart!
But Jesus our God-Man Champion has come!
Jesus our God-Man Champion has perfectly obeyed!
Jesus our God-Man Champion has perfectly loved!
Jesus our God-Man Champion has perfectly trusted!
Jesus our God-Man Champion has died!
Jesus our God-Man Champion has risen!
Jesus our God-Man Champion is coming back!
And so, no matter what, we trust in the Lord our God!

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

Grace and peace for all who shun
The foolish sin that we've all done
Oh trust in Christ and to Him run

"That's My King!" Who Will Change Your Heart From Evil Men He'll Set Apart And Be Your Joy From The Start!

The Bible says there's no one good
Who's done the justice as he should
But if God's wisdom's understood
You'll walk the good path as you should
Because with joy now you would
Wisdom's in your heart for good
Because He died upon that wood
Then rose – in victory He stood
To save in every Philly hood!

That's my King!

Knowing God delights your soul
His pleasant truth will make you whole
His captivating love control
And all your pain and loss console
Our God Himself is the great goal
Not His gifts or a money roll
So trust in Him – His name extol
He died and rose to save your soul!

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

From wicked men you'll turn away
Their joy in evil has no sway
You've found a joy more than gay
To follow Jesus and obey
Perversity and lies they say
But you've been raised to brightest day
To walk with Christ – He is the Way
Yet evil men would mock and slay
Hit and spit and Christ betray
He wasn't guarded from the fray
He took God's wrath on judgment day
But death won't get the final say
His body would not see decay
He rose to conquer men who stray
And put His grace on full display
With Christ you'll never go astray!

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

Jesus is always the most upright
Blameless with integrity out of sight

Has all might
Saves from any plight
Forever will excite
As heaven's Height
And purest Delight
So trust in Him and live upright!

That's my King! Do you know Him?

God's precious Words you must receive
Remember, treasure, and believe

You'll run to Him by faith and cleave
From all your fears He will relieve
Full joy in Him you can't conceive!

He's the Temple!
He's the Tree of Life!
He's the great Testator of His Church!
He is the Way!
He's the Well of salvation!
He's the Word of God!
He's the Wisdom of God!
He's the Faithful Witness!
His person is one!
His natures are two!
He is both human and divine!
He's finite and infinite!
He's created and uncreated!
He was before Abraham, though not born for ages after that patriarch slept with His fathers!
He was dead, and behold He is alive forevermore!
On earth He had no where to lay His head, yet He disposes of all diadems!
By Him kings rule and princes decree justice!
He has the arm of a God, and the heart of a brother!
To Him all tongues shall confess and all knees bow!
Yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered!
None loves like Him, none pities like Him, none saves like Him!

That's my King!

It is not surprising that such a person lives and reigns in the hearts of His people!
No marvel that the virgins love Him!
The saints praise Him!
The martyrs die for Him!
The confessors are not ashamed of Him!
The sorrowing sigh for Him!
The penitent lie at His cross and pour out their tears before Him!
The humble trust in Him!
The believing lay fast hold of Him and will not let Him go!
His frown shakes the frame of universal nature!
His smile gives life!
His presence converts dungeons into palaces!
His blood cleanses from all sin!
His righteousness is the white robe of the redeemed!
If men would be safe, or wise, or holy, or happy, or useful, or strong, or victorious - let them look to JESUS!
Let them look to none else!
Let them walk in Him, abide in Him, glory in Him, and count as loss all things besides!
You may look at the law until the spirit of bondage overwhelms you with terrors and torments!
You may go about to establish your own righteousness until you can boast, and sin, and perish like a Pharisee!
You may weep until the fountain of your tears has gone dry!
You may have all gifts, understand all mysteries, bestow all your goods to feed the poor, and yield your body to be burned!
But all these things will not atone for sin, will do nothing toward regaining the lost favor of God, will not make you fit for the inheritance of the saints in light!
"None but Christ! None but Christ! None but Christ!" has been the cry of the faithful witnesses of all ages when truth has triumphed, when sinners were converted, when saints shouted for joy, when the Word of God mightily grew and prevailed!

That's my King!

We are cleansed through His blood!
We are clothed in His righteousness!
We are purified by His Spirit!
We meet the demands of the Law of this day of grace when we walk as He walked and have the same mind that was in Him!
In proportion as men are truly pious, they make Jesus the foundation and the top-stone, the sum, and substance, and center of all their hopes and rejoicings before God!
He is accepted and believed on in the world, not merely because there is no other Savior, but because His way of saving sinners precisely suits their case, and because it brings glory to God in the highest!
The true believer not only trusts in Christ, but makes his boast in Him!
He not only makes mention of Him; he admits none into comparison with Him!
To all the ends, parts, and purposes of salvation, Christ stands alone!
There is none like Him!
There is none with Him!
There is none before Him!
There is none after Him!
There is none beside Him!
He had no predecessor!
He has, and shall have no successor!
He has no vicegerent!
He has no assistant!
He wears an undivided crown, and wields a perfect sovereignty over an undivided kingdom!
If God's people exalt Him above all others, so does His holy and eternal Father!
If they crown Him Lord of all, God also has highly exalted Him, and given Him a name that is above every name!
If they surpassingly admire and extol Him, there is cause for this preference!
It is a holy, reasonable thing, to fall before Him and cry, "My Lord and my God!"
If He is the delight of his redeemed people, He is also the delight of His Father!
Listen to the voice from the excellent glory: "This is my beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased!"

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

"That's My King!" Who Forgave You More Than You Could Ever Dream For From His Veins Flowed A Healing Stream And Though Our Families Cry And Scream He Rose To Be Salvation's Theme And Soon All Things He Will Redeem!

Our great King Jesus owed no debt
Was sinless, perfect by His sweat
By faith His righteousness we get
And though He worked us out of debt
He would pay the hell we fret
Take upon Himself God's threat
For at the cross He paid our debt
Where wrath and love and mercy met
So now forever we are set
There's peace and joy – no regret!
He died and rose to pay our debt!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

And since He showed us so much grace
We must forgive in every case
No matter how wicked and base
The sin against us in our face
That day we wish we could erase
The wicked murders based on race
But two days after manhunt chase
The ones who'd lost so much embrace
And looked the killer in the face
"We forgive" they said with grace
"You need our Christ to take your place!"
Oh friends this is amazing grace
Won't you our humble Christ embrace!
Who died for every tribe and race!
Real soon He'll take us to a place
Of sin and death there'll be no trace
He'll wipe all tears from every face
Then Him with joy we'll embrace
Forever sing and praise His grace!

That's my King!  That's my King!
