"That's My King!" In The Gospel Of Matthew!

The family tree of my King includes whores and hookers; murderers and adulterers; liars and deceivers, but my King can save them all, change them all, and make all their sins as white as snow!

My King was conceived by the Holy Spirit!
He was born of a virgin!
He came to save His people from their sins!
His name is Immanuel – God with us!
When He was born, a star appeared to lead kings to worship Him!
He came to shepherd His people Israel!
He's the greater Israel, called out of Egypt to deliver His people from everlasting slavery!

That's my King!

He's the one mightier whose sandal strap no one is worthy to untie!
He baptized with the Holy Spirit and with fire!
He alone fulfilled all righteousness!
He is God's beloved Son with Whom the Father is well pleased!
He's the greater Adam Who did what the first Adam should've done – He kicked Satan out of the garden of this world!
He's the great light that dawned to bring His people out of darkness!
He makes those who follow Him fishers of men!
He healed epileptics and paralytics!
He cured those afflicted with various diseases and pains!
He cast out demons!
And He's worthy for us to leave everything precious to us and follow Him where ever He takes us!

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

He's the meekest of the meek!
He hungers and thirsts for righteousness like no other!
He's the most merciful of the merciful!
He's the purest of the purest in heart!
He's the peacemaker of peacemakers!
Though He's the only one Who ever lived Who deserved no persecution, He was the most persecuted so that His people might be saved!

That's my King!

He's the salt of the earth!
He's the light of the world!
He's the fulfillment of all the law and the prophets!
He's the new and perfect law giver!
He's the treasure of heaven that the human heart longs for!
He's the greatest gift from heaven we could ever dream of receiving!

That's my King!

He astonished crowds!
He had authority like no other!
He cleansed lepers!
He cooled fevers!
He drove out demons!
He took our illnesses and bore our diseases!

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

He had no place to live – nowhere to even lay His head!
He commanded the raging winds and seas to calm down and they ceased and became silent!
He's astonishing, frightening, and joy-inspiring all at the same time!
He forgives and eats with sinners!
He's the all satisfying Bridegroom Who will marry you at the end of time and fulfill all your desires perfectly!
He raised the dead!
He made the blind see!
He made the mute speak!

That's my King!

He's compassionate to the sheep without a shepherd!
He sends His people out to minister and love others in His name!
He's worthy of more love than you give your own father and mother!
He's worthy of more love than you give your own son or daughter!
He's worthy for us all to lose our lives for His sake!
He's the Teacher of teachers and the Preacher of preachers!
He's the Doer of many mighty works!
He's the only One able to give us rest for our souls!

That's my King! Are you finding rest for your souls in Him alone today?!

He's the Lord of the Sabbath!
He restores withered hands!
He's the chosen Servant!
He pleases the soul of the eternal, infinite God!
He proclaimed justice to the Gentiles!
He won't break a bruised reed, and He won't quench a smoldering wick!
He'll bring justice and victory for the glory of the King of Kings!

That's my King!

He's the something greater than Jonah!
He's the something greater than Solomon!
He's the brother and son of all those who do the will of His Father in heaven!
He displays in Himself what myriads of prophets and righteous people longed to see!
He opened His mouth in parables and uttered what has been hidden since the foundation of the world!
He's like treasure in a field Who is worthy for us, in our joy, to sell all that we have so that we can buy that field!
He's the pearl of great price worthy of all our delight and admiration!
He astonished His people with all His wisdom and mighty works!

That's my King!

He had compassion on the people and fed five thousand with a little food and four thousand too!
He walked on water!
His disciples who knew Him best – His disciples who were Jews and were only supposed to worship the one and only true God – worshiped Him! He is God!
People begged to merely touch the fringe of His garment so that they might be healed!
Because of Him, the mute spoke, the crippled were healthy, the lame walked, the blind could see, and people glorified the God is Israel!

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

He is the Christ, the Son of the living God!
He had to go to Jerusalem and suffering many things, and be killed, and on the third day be raised!
He always set His mind on the things of God and not on the things of man!
He's worthy for us to pick up our cross and follow Him!
He's worth more than the whole world!
He's coming back with His angels in the glory of His Father to repay each person according to what they have done!

Are you read for the return of the King today?!

He was transfigured on the mountain, His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as light!
He is the One we are to listen to above all others!
He dwells among His people as they gather in His name!
He is more precious than all the riches that this world could offer us!
Everyone who leaves everything to follow Him will receive a hundredfold back and eternal life!
He's the King Who rode into Jerusalem on a donkey!
God ordained nursing babes to praise Him!
He's the rejected stone of the builders that has become the chief cornerstone!
He's the only one Who ever loved the Lord His God with all His heart, soul, and mind and loved His neighbor as Himself perfectly for the glory of God!

That's my King!

He's the Lord of Lords Who will have all enemies put under His feet!
He's the one instructor!
He's so worthy and His love is so satisfying that to be hated by all nations for His name's sake is a glorious honor!
He will return on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory and His angels with gather His people from all the nations of the earth!
He's returning at an hour you do not expect!
He will return in His glory, with all His angels with Him, and sit on His glorious throne, separating the sheep from the goats!

Are you ready for the return of the King today?!

He was betrayed, denied, and abandoned by His closest friends!
He was spit upon!
He was beaten!
He was stripped naked!
He was mocked!
He wore a crown of thorns!
He was nailed to a cross!
He was forsaken by God!
He endured the full measure of the wrath of God in place of hell deserving sinners!

That's my King!

He yielded up His spirit with a loud voice when he died!
The curtain of the temple was ripped in two!
The earth shook!
The dead were raised!
He was buried in the tomb!
But death couldn't hold Him!
He didn't stay dead!
And now He's alive forevermore to the praise and glory of God!

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