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

"That's My King!" In The Book Of Acts!

My King is worthy to have countless biographies written about Him that simply record what He began to do and to teach, let alone record what He's done since He began, what He's doing now, and what He'll do for all eternity!

There aren't enough books in the world to contain the glories of my King! Do you know Him?!

He gave commands to the apostles through the Holy Spirit!
After His suffering, He presented Himself alive to the apostles by many proofs – My King was dead, but now He is alive, and He lives forevermore, never to die again!
My King is worthy to have witnesses testify about Him in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth!
When He finished His work on earth, He was lifted up to heaven and will return in the same way He departed!

That's my King!

He was attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through Him!
He was delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God!
He was crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men!
But God raised Him up, and He loosed the pangs of death!
It was impossible for death to hold Him!
God would not abandon His soul to Hades nor allow His Holy One to see corruption!
Through His death and resurrection He has made a way for us to enjoy fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore at God's right hand!

That's my King!

God raised Him up and exalted Him to His almighty right hand!
God has made Him both Lord and Christ!
When He gets a hold of people, they go around selling everything they have and make sure no one is in need of anything!
When He gets a hold of people, they spend a lot of time together, eating together, praying together, and praising God together because of what their King has done!
In His name, the apostles baptized thousands for the forgiveness of sins!
In His name, the apostles made the lame to walk and leap and praise the Lord!

That's my King!

He was glorified by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!
He was delivered over and denied by wicked sinners in the presence of Pilate!
He's the Holy and Righteous One Who was denied so that the criminal Barabbas might live!
He's the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead!
His name, by faith in His name, has made men strong!
Heaven must receive Him until the restoration of all things!

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

He's the long awaited, raised up, full of God's Spirit, all powerful, all knowing, all satisfying Prophet, Priest, and King Whom we must listen to and obey in whatever He tells us!
Every soul that does not listen to Him shall be destroyed from the people!
All that the prophets spoke proclaimed the days of my King!
He came to bless us by turning every one of us away from our selfish wickedness!

That's my King!

He's worthy to be preached about, even though you might get thrown in jail!
He's the stone that was rejected that has become the chief cornerstone!
There is salvation in no one else but Him!
There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved!
He takes uneducated, common men and makes them so bold that they astonish the watching world around them!
He's the kind of King Whom we must open our mouth about no matter what harm anyone threatens against us!

That's my King! Are ready to tell somebody about Him today?!

God exalted Him at His right hand as Leader and Savior to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins!
His mission will not fail and none of His plans will ever be overthrown by anyone or anything!
He was unceasingly preached everywhere by the Apostles as the Christ!
He stopped the threatening, murderous persecutor of His church – Saul – dead in his tracks and converted him into one of the greatest Christ-exalting theologians and missionaries who has ever lived on the face of this earth!
He is Lord of all!

That's my King!

He was anointed by God with the Holy Spirit and with power!
He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the Devil!
God was with Him!
He was put to death by being hung on a tree!
But God raised Him up on the third day and made Him appear to those who had been chosen by God!
He's appointed by God to be the judge of the living and the dead!
And everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through His name!
My King brings together Jews and Gentiles, slaves and free, men and women, rich and poor, young and old, democrats and republicans, blacks and whites and causes them to join hands and sing in the God-breathed words of the Apostle Paul: "Christ is all! Christ is all! We are all one in Christ, and He is all!"

Now that's my King! Do you know Him?!

Jerusalem and her rulers fulfilled the words of the prophets by condemning my King!
They found no guilt in Him worthy of death, but they killed Him anyway!
They took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb!
But God raised Him up from the dead, no more to return to corruption!
He was given the holy and sure blessings of David that shall never have an end!
Everyone who believes in Him is justified from everything which you could not be justified by the law of Moses!

That's my King!

My King is a King worth risking your life for!
His Spirit directs His people where He wants them to preach the Gospel!
In His name, spirits are commanded to flee and they obey!
He is worthy of our thanks and praise, even after being beaten and imprisoned!
He is the One Man by Whom God will judge the world in righteousness!
He taught us that it is more blessed, more satisfying, more full of happiness to give than to receive!
He's worthy to die for!
He takes those who oppose Him, hate Him, and kill His followers and changes them into His greatest supporters, lovers, and witnesses who willingly die for His name sake!

That's my King! Are you willing to be a witness for Him today?!
