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.

2012 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!
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!
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!
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!
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!" Who Began The New Creation As The King Of Every Nation And Came To Grant Salvation To Our Most Evil Population!

We see the genesis of Jesus Christ in the beginning; He's the only one on this list Who didn't do any sinning; The wicked sin some of His ancestors did will leave your head spinning; This points to unfathomable mercy and grace that will only leave you grinning, for He's the God-Man Who died and rose to be forever winning!
He came to earth to make all things new; The mess Adam made He came to undo; Even in us who meet here at Chew, and all in the world who sit in the pew; No matter what happens, He'll bring you through, and work all for good – everything He'll renew; With goodness and mercy He'll pursue; One day He'll make every sadness untrue!
He's "Yahweh Saves" – the Messiah of all; This list will prove His phenomenal call; He removed God's wrath when He tasted the gall and rose up on high – the tallest of tall; Now He's King of kings with power not small; He takes a wicked Saul and makes him a Paul; If you trust in Him, you'll never fall!
He's both David and Abraham's greatest Son; Fulfilling the kingship and covenant done; In His death and resurrection New Creation's begun; His power and might are second to none; His glory and beauty shine like the sun!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Jesus' family history includes an adulterer, murderer, and whore; His abundant love and mercy to richly underscore; To all types of sinners He's the saving open door; If you repent and believe, He won't ignore, but your hope and purity He'll restore; For He's the Dirty Rose Lover Who all our sins He bore, and conquered death and hell providing grace galore; To get this grace you cannot work like it's a chore; You must simply believe and then do nothing more; His Spirit will live in you to cause you to adore; Then you'll do good works for Him as you never did before; More and more all evil you'll begin to abhor, and against your own sin you'll wage an all-out holy war!
Wicked King Jechoniah is in His family line; None of his son's will be king as God's cursing sign; So Joseph's not the father in Jesus' bloodline; But he's the father for legal kingship in God's good design; And Mary's the source for the Davidic bloodline; Oh how great is the plan of the Divine; The things He assigns make His glory brightly shine, and His plans are all so gloriously fine!
Jesus has an amazing family tree; It shows God's compassion if you have eyes to see; His love and mercy are always free to all who trust and with His Gospel agree no matter their sin to the evilest degree; So come to Him by faith and make your plea; Beg Him for mercy on bended knee, and to this Mercy-Heart God may you quickly flee!

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!
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!
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; If you 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 our 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 up 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 little 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'll begin to grow!
He shall save His people from their sins; That's were Matthew's Gospel starts and ends; Trust in Him and there your life begins; He's the Warrior-King Who always wins; He came to make 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; All sadness for joy He will reclaim for the glorious fame of His beautiful name!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Greatest Sign That Ever Came, All Leaven To Set Aflame And Hard Hearts To Reclaim Bringing Glory To His Most Precious Name!

A sign from heaven they wickedly sought; To test our LORD is all for naught; His Divine nature they never caught; The greatest sign is the Christ Who taught; He's the most brilliant sign ever wrought; Against all evil He victoriously fought to end all things making us distraught; For sinners He died and salvation brought; He rose to end every evil onslaught; He's more excellent than all you've ever thought, so trust in Him just as you ought!
He's the most excellent sign Who came down from heaven; Through His Person and Work He purifies all leaven; He showed His glory in the baskets left over – seven!
When you try to put God to the test; His reply will come back with zest; With Him they shouldn't have messed; Back against them with truth He pressed; He refused to grant their request because He Himself is the sign they suppressed; With Him they should have been impressed, but instead they would eventually arrest, have Him undressed and in His face spit and jest; Yet out of His mouth there would be no protest, and He would endure what most distressed as He died for the oppressed and was raised to give those rest who with Him alone would be obsessed!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

He warned of the Pharisee and Herod yeast; It's unbelief and evil like the mark of the beast; It will cause your love and joy to cease; But in Christ we have the most satisfying feast; He's our sympathetic, great High Priest, Who on that cross gruesomely deceased so that our joy in Him would forever increase; From all our sin we can be released – it's removed from us as far as west is from east; All who trust are forgiven from the greatest to the least!
The disciples seem clueless and unaware; Lack of physical bread had captured their care, though Christ just made two feasts from thin air; Their hearts are hard and in need of repair; They lack contentment in the Christ Who's there; New hearts for His own He came to prepare; For a new heart you must bow to Him in prayer; He'll save you from all sin that might ensnare; By grace alone He won't give you what's fair; For in His Son, you're righteous He will declare, and your love for evil He'll slowly tear; As a son of the King, He numbers your hair; This world has nothing that with Him can compare!
He's the promised Messiah of every nation and God's "Amen!" to all prophetic expectation; The disciples missing this is a baffling irritation; He came to let the nations be glad with joyous acclamation as they glorify Him for His perfect death of consecration and His resurrection that ended His people's condemnation to glorify His Father for purchasing such a great salvation!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King" Who Will Comfort Bring If To Him You'll Cling When The Gun Shots Ring And The Pain's An Unbearable Thing!

When tragedy falls within the school walls, our nation it appalls; But God is most angry when He recalls what happened in the halls; "Vengeance is Mine!" is what He calls in the Roman letter known as Paul's; Everyone who galls and breaks His laws will give Him cause to open up His jaws and crush all sin that against us gnaws until all evil, pain, and death withdraws; The Good News that should give us pause, since we've all broken God's laws, is that the Christ Who's without flaws was crushed by the Father's jaws and on that cross He suffered for all our broken laws as the Father's wrath on Him befalls, and then He rises to great applause for He's salvation's major cause!
It should be our aim to ease the pain of those whose grief they can't contain; We learn from Job's friends – they did abstain; For seven days their mouths restrain; They started well Job to sustain; But then their speech was all in vain; We weep with those who weep with pain, whose suffering seems to drive insane; Then words of comfort we make plain; The hope we find in our King's reign, Who on that cross Himself was slain; Freedom from suffering to finally obtain!

That's my King!  Are you weeping over the city with Him today?!

"Where is God?" asked in dismay; He's where He is on every day; He rules o'er all we do and say; Even when all seems to go astray; What the shooter meant for evil pay; God meant for good
His secret way; Oh to trust Him in the fray; To see His faithfulness display; there on that cross His Son He'd slay; This shouts "I love you!" without sway; Christ knows our suffering and decay; Tender sympathies He will convey; Believe in Him – He won't cast away but care for you  without delay!
In this loss Christ speaks to every personal situation; Saying, “Repent or you too with perish without salvation!”  He whispers in our pleasurable vacation, but shouts in our painful desperation – that we might look to Him without hesitation for He's the only satisfying expectation Who will give us fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore at the consummation; So please trust in Him, and you'll be free from condemnation, and all your tears and pain will be cast into a sea of desolation; All things sad will burn up in conflagration, and every joy and delight will be heightened with everlasting jubilation!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who More Than Satisfies All People's Hungry Cries And Then Dies To Rise To Become Our Everlasting Prize!

Behold a great crowd with nothing to eat; They're without food as if out on the street; There's not enough wheat, sugar that's sweet, or even enough meat for all to eat; But God in their midst, Who's over all elite; This miracle once again He'll gladly repeat; Alone in Himself He's fully complete; There's not one of your needs that He cannot meet; His endless resources you'll never deplete; If you trust in Him, it's always His treat; All your enemies He'll fully defeat, and of Him you'll eat to be fully replete; He'll save you from the worst life on the street; He Himself will be your delightful meat and be to your taste buds the greatest sweet!
They desire being with Christ more than their necessary food; He's their first priority and to His teaching they're glued;  It's like being in love – all other desires you exclude, for by this one consuming passion you've been subdued; Between them and Christ they'll let no other needs intrude; To hear from their Jesus they've gone out and pursued; His power and glory by them must be viewed, for only through Him can their lives be renewed; By His love and mercy all people's will be wooed; He's the great God in the flesh we must conclude!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

The disciples are helpless to feed the crowd; Apart from Christ we can do nothing allowed; But by His grace we give Him praise out loud like the appearance of the glory cloud where all of Israel stood amazed and wowed; It's the all providing Christ Who died and plowed; In Him all goodness and power are endowed, and to Him every knee will eventually be bowed; He's the only One of whom we can genuinely be proud because He fed the crowed and left us wowed!
His compassions fail not, He sees your every need; He'll provide for them all at just the right speed; Your deepest longings He'll satisfy indeed; And not only this, but He'll also exceed; Your dreams are too small, they lie and mislead; His plans are best, so follow His lead; He's the Savior of the world – the woman's great Seed; On that cross He died and to save He'd bleed, but He rose up from the grave and from death He's freed; Now all His good plans must perfectly proceed, and if you believe in Him God's Word is agreed; All his perfect plans for your life will succeed just as His Father from of old decreed!
He more than satisfies every nation; He's the Good Shepherd – God's incarnation; Of true salvation He's the foundation; He saves all people's without discrimination; None of His plans encounter frustration; He'll be your all in all at the final consummation when you praise and adore Him with eternal admiration!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Opens Ears To Hear And Mouths To Praise And Will Only Amaze For Eternal Days!

He continued to heal when He left Tyre; He met a deaf mute whose need was dire; From doing all good He'll never retire; Over the whole world He's the reigning Sire; He came to save us from our sinful mire, so we wouldn't face God's eternal fire; His death and resurrection do inspire; Repentance and faith He will require; Then His beauty you'll forever admire!
This needy man had closed up ears; But God on earth the Christ appears to save from all his future fears and dry his saddened, lonely tears; His ears the Christ sets free and clears to the joy and praise of all his peers; He caused astonishment with cheers; Though once a deaf man now he hears; He'll praise the Christ for all his years Who rules o'er all our earthly spheres and makes sure sadness disappears; Then on that day when He appears and each knee bows and Him reveres, we'll hear His voice with perfect ears; Praise be to Him eternal cheers!
No praises from his mouth could bring; His tongue was tied like in a sling; And then he met his Savior King Who touched his tongue – He did redeem; O for a thousand tongues to sing; May praises to our God now ring; The Christ Himself is the greatest thing; So turn from sin and to Him cling; Of every good He's the eternal spring!
He astonishes you beyond measure because He Himself is the greatest treasure Who alone grants inexpressible pleasure!

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

Like God said:  "Let there be!" and it was very good; Jesus said:  "Be Opened!" and this deaf man understood; He began the new creation as the Second Adam should; May we trust and obey Him – His true followers would!
At His trial, His mouth was closed; He couldn't hear, Pilate supposed; Like a sheep before its foes; He remained silent but still composed; The world and devil He opposed; All these powers He deposed when on that cross He was exposed; But in the grave not decomposed; He rose from there, death's mouth He closed; Now we're forever all transposed; And Paradise has been disclosed – He's the best gift we find enclosed!
He always, in love, does all things well, no matter what trial in your life befell; Whether you went to jail, your lover said farewell, cancer's in your blood cell, or it's so bad you can't even tell; He works all things for good if with Him you dwell; If you trust in Him, He suffered the pains of hell for the reason you went to jail; On that cross His Father said farewell, so you, He would never expel; In His own body He bore the cancer cell so that one day your health will forever excel; And the worst of trials that your mouth can't tell; He meant for good so don't rebel; But may His love for you compel; To give up all and go and tell; Of His great love, He's done all well!
He makes the mute man sing with glee; He fulfilled this amazing prophesy; He's God in the flesh – the One we see; The almighty, glorious One in Three; He died and rose to set us free; Repent and believe – that is His plea!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Put To The Test, Brought Out Her Best, Healed The Possessed, And Made The Outcast His Guest – God's Glory To Forever Express!

Jesus entered a house and wanted to stay hidden; Even from all the bedridden and those with devils stricken; This evil's in the world because Adam ate the forbidden, and because of this sin the whole world he'd sicken; But the Second Adam came on that cross to be smitten and rise from the dead just as it was written so the vilest of sinners could still be forgiven; To this woman He'd finally listen; Her faith won't let His mercy stay hidden and her humility His stern reply has overridden!
Like Job, Jesus put this woman warrior to the test; He didn't do this to make her life stressed or depressed; But in love to make her faith shine as He pressed; Jesus brought out her best while on a loving, mercy-heart quest; And by faith in His righteousness alone she'd be dressed; He graciously granted her humble request and healed her daughter from all that oppressed; If like this woman you want to be blessed; Humble yourself and don't stick out your chest; Trust  Him alone and with all that He is be impressed; He'll always grant you what's best and give you everlasting rest!
Pleading with Jesus she wouldn't relent; Her desires persisted for His consent; With His blessing alone she'd be content; Her faith wouldn't submit but bowed to the humblest extent; Her place as a dog she wouldn't resent; But answered "Yes Lord!" without dissent; She would trust Him no matter what He meant, for she believed His only good, loving intent, and her great faith would cause His heart to assent, and put an end to her horrific torment!
She didn't mind being little; Her ego's not that brittle; Her joy it didn't whittle; She followed her Savior's transmittal when His face was marred with spittle before He died for her acquittal and showed His life was all committal!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Jesus can't be hidden from plain sight; He's the not little One of Whom Mark would write; He's God come to earth to make all wrongs right; Yet He became little as a man contrite, and died on that cross as the sin God would smite; Now risen He reigns as the Master of might!
What makes all the difference is the object of your trust; Your faith can be weak, but if on Jesus your hopes are thrust, you'll never walk away in disgust, but Christ will be your holy lust; In this short life He's your only MUST; Hidden with Him all your dreams are robust; They'll never turn to dust or be tarnished by rust, so put your faith in Him Who's never unjust!
He welcomes the outcasts from every nation; All peoples and races both southern and Haitian; He'll make you His guest without reservation; From all tribes and tongues He grants salvation; To join His family there's one stipulation; Repent and believe, and He'll start reformation; You'll find in Him everlasting liberation, meditation, fascination, and jubilation – can I get an amen affirmation?!
One of Christ's crumbs is better than all you could dream; It's better than the whole world and how great that might seem; He's better than her in all her beauty gleam and love steam; You see, Christ Himself is the Bread of Life Supreme; "Christ is all!" is what you most desperately need and not self-esteem, for we already esteem ourselves to the extreme; Jesus came to save us from our self-centered scheme; He died on that cross our lives to redeem and rose from the dead setting up His regime; Repent and believe to live the dream; You'll forget yourself and have Christ-esteem and enjoy Him with satisfaction you've never seen as God's glory more and more becomes your only theme!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Whose Heart Is Clean, Makes The Obscene Pristine, And Heals The Defiled Like You've Never Seen!

Things outside you can't defile; Lust won't stop when you walk that aisle; Flee to Christ Who passed the trial; On that cross He was made the vile, though in His life was found no guile; Against Him God became hostile; He died and rose to reconcile all who trust and don't revile; Then you'll receive God's loving smile!
What's in your heart is what you really are; Not what you eat or smoking a cigar; An evil heart your character will mar; Your sin from God has taken you afar; So trust in Christ the bright morning star; He saves through His lasting cross-borne scar!
From your hearts come every evil; What you deserve from God is lethal; A finite death is not His equal; You deserve an eternal sequel; But God lay in the manger fetal; The infinite would bear the lethal; On that cross He became the feeble to quench all charges against you legal; Then raised you up to die to evil!
His purest, clean heart is what you need; Against all defiling evil He'd succeed; So whether you've been smoking weed or your heart is full of greed or your whole life's been filled with all manner of every wicked deed, your sin this Savior won't impede, for He's the evil crushing Seed Who came to bleed so that you would forevermore be freed if you'll believe His creed and to His Word take heed; He'll grant you salvation guaranteed!

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

Your surroundings don't make you sin; Not skin, gin, your annoying boss Gwyn; your least favorite kin, or the new baby twin; “Don't push my buttons!” you cry to Glen; But the problem is your buttons within; Only through Jesus can change begin, so bow down to the King Whose mercies win!
Out of His heart flows only good; He always did all the good He should; Though He was often misunderstood; He never spoke the smallest falsehood; Against all sin He triumphantly withstood; He died upon the bloody cross-wood and rose to do what we never could!
He saves sinners from every nationality; He saves from all sexual immorality; He saves you in your criminality no matter what your illegality; He saves from all wicked rationality no matter what your personality; On that cross He endured brutality to become the Gospel's centrality, and saving the worst of sinners is His specialty; He saves you from eternal fatality; He'll change your whole mentality; Make you live under His principality; And grant you the most joyous immortality!
He heals His defiled creation and grants new hearts through regeneration; That's your only hope for liberation from fornication and the punishment of endless damnation; With a new heart He lays the foundation for a life full of praise and adoration to the God Who alone grants salvation!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Center Of All Thanksgiving As The God Of The Living Through His Merciful Forgiving!

As you enjoy your thanksgiving food, don't forget the Seed and serpent feud when Adam fell the war ensued because the serpent crass and crude and as the lying devil shrewd, God's Word to Eve and Adam skewed; Then in the world all evil brewed; From garden bliss He did exclude; All sinners with their attitude; But God sent a Savior to change the mood; In this dark world Light did intrude; His whole life all worthiness accrued; And at His death He was stripped and nude and treated as the unwanted lewd; There the war was done – it did conclude; Death's jaws He would finally elude; By all evil He couldn't be subdued; This whole world would be renewed, and you, though in your sin and hatred rude; By mercy He graciously pursued so that you in heaven He might include as you trust in Him when His beauty's viewed!
Now He's the center of all your praise; All His good gifts are merely rays that point us back to the Ancient of Days; He's the Sun that burns our idol haze and sets our hearts for Him ablaze; He blesses with gifts in manifold ways, but to the Source our eyes must raise and with Him our greatest allegiance stays; His grace and glory alone amaze!
In every delight you've ever desired, Christ is the joy you truly admired; Every good thing from Him is inspired; For eternally deep joy He is required; With the Father and the Spirit He has conspired to ensure fullness of joy in Him is acquired!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Be thankful that He saved from Hell; Now with your soul it all is well; In His house forevermore you'll dwell; All your sin He'll finally expel and in righteousness you'll truly excel; So from the mountain top go and yell and everyone His Gospel tell for it's His great love that must compel!
Be thankful He's a sovereign King; Elect He chose under His wing; Totally depraved a sinful spring; He died for them to make them clean; Irresistibly to God He'll bring and to Him alone they'll always cling; His glories to forever sing!
Be thankful He loves Himself the most; He'll fill you with His Holy Ghost and with His pleasures you'll be engrossed; He's the greatest joy from coast to coast; He's the delight of all of heaven's host; May He forever be your only boast!
Be thankful Christ is the center from Genesis to Revelation; He's the Word God spoke at the beginning of creation; And this Word became flesh in the glorious incarnation; He was the fourth man in the furnace of the Shadrach conflagration; He's the greater Adam Who overcame the Devil's temptation and passed the earthly probation; He's the greater Moses Who lead His people  without hesitation into the promised land where there'd be no tribulation; He's the greater David Who represented His congregation in the great confrontation where He endured condemnation to save them from damnation!
Be thankful for His Gospel every day; We need it for the power in all we do and say; It's not just for the beginning when we start to walk Christ's way; But something to always live out in its manifold array; We must always put it on display; It'll keep us from going astray, help us pray, and we must always seek to give it away!
Be thankful for His lovely Bride; For her alone He bled and died; He always stands right by her side; She displays His beauty to the whole worldwide and to principalities and powers all outside; Her every need He will provide and in glorious bliss she'll forever abide!

That's my King!

All the thanks you could ever render could never repay the Christ our Defender; He came and defeated every contender; He sends to endless Hell every offender and unmasks the heart of every pretender; So bow to Him by faith and surrender, and He'll fill your heart with everlasting splendor!
He's the God of the living Who raises up from the grave; He puts an end to death's cold wave; Through the cross and resurrection He forgave; All sinners who repent and believe He'll save!
Mercy-Heart is His beautiful name; I'm so glad He took the shame and blame that I should claim for my every wicked frame; But He became the same and by imputation my sin became; His Father's wrath He'd finally tame so that "Freedom!" we could forever exclaim if "Mercy!" too we'd cry and proclaim; May His glory alone be our only aim all for the sake of the fame of His beautiful name!
He taught me "Christ is all!" through rejection and pain and to boast only in the cross off the coast of Bahrain; So many earthly treasures I wanted to attain; He taught me to live is Christ and to die is gain; May I wholly die now, fall to earth like a grain; Then fruit I'll produce that only He can sustain; All praise and honor be to the Lamb Who was slain and with Him someday we'll forever reign; Then all the reasons for all the pain He'll forever make plain as we enjoy pleasures and delights that will never wane!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Perfectly Honored His Father And Mother And Upholds God's Word Unlike Any Other!

He had a fine way to always obey all His Father would say; He'd constantly pray and never stray from the right way; The Father's love He'd display on that cross we survey love's manifold array; He died and then rose on the Lord's Day; All our enemies to slay; Him we could never repay; So don't delay; Only trust and obey, and today He'll take all your sin away so you'll forever be okay!
God's commandments the Pharisees reject; Their prized traditions they erect, but obedience to God's perfect law they wrecked and formed a godless sect; God's Word they should have checked because with Christ they had a huge disconnect; They showed Him no respect; Their hypocrisy He'd detect; He came to correct, but they'd kill Him as a defect; Through this He came to save the wrecked and heal the disconnect; Therefore He didn't stay dead as you expect, but the Father His dead body would resurrect; So trust in Him, and show yourself to be His elect; He'll never neglect those He did select; He'll forever protect, and more and more His glory you'll perfectly reflect!
"Honor your father and mother" is what Moses said; But the Pharisees butchered it until it was blood red, bled, and dead; Their tradition is what they read; Jesus came, and for another way He plead to show them they're misled; He's the "come in the flesh" of what Moses said, and it was He Himself Who had to be butchered blood red, bled, and dead; Then He rose from the dead instead to give life to all who would trust the living Head!
To disobey God's law is to surely die; Without Christ you'll forever fry; Don't rebel and ask Him why; It's because His glory is infinitely high; Don't make an excuse for your lie but to the mercy of Jesus fly, and He'll save you if to Him you'll cry!

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

May we never make God's Word void; The truth shall never be destroyed; God's Word will successfully be deployed, even though some places will be annoyed; With spreading His Word may we often be employed; Repent and believe, and in Him you'll be overjoyed!
Jesus perfectly honored His Father and obeyed His law; He's absolutely sinless without the tiniest flaw; Everyone around Him – this is what they saw; Over and over again He left them standing in awe, sometimes even with a dropped jaw; When on that cross the Father's presence He'd finally withdraw; Jesus perfectly loved and fulfilled all the law!
On that cross as He passed the test; He had a mother-loving quest; To find a home for her to rest; The disciple who leaned back on His breast took Mary in at Christ's request; See, even at His death distressed; God's wrath on Him bore down and pressed; All around He was oppressed; Yet with God's will He remained obsessed, and as a Son He loved her best; Oh with this Son we should be impressed, obsessed, and He Himself should be our quest; So don't be depressed, distressed, stressed, or repressed; But by His beauty be possessed, and He'll make you forever blessed with everlasting rest because He died and rose and passed the test!
He upheld God's Word to the very end; He always obeyed and never sinned; On His Father He did depend; Against God's law He could not offend; This Living Word I do commend; His love and mercy do transcend; Trust in Him – He'll be your greatest friend!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Veteran Of Veterans Who Answered The Call And Became The Universe's All In All!

He's the only One Who perfectly served; God's law He always perfectly observed, and shed His blood for the undeserved!
He has infinite might; Won the greatest fight; Put all enemies to flight; Makes all wrongs right; and gives everlasting delight!
He's God's ultimate warrior Who never sins; He finishes everything He begins; His power and strength never thins; Against all enemies He defends and always wins; With every threat He contends and to Hell He sends; So make amends and by faith become one of His friends; To you His mercy extends and then enjoy His beauty that transcends!
When I hit the buoy, He was there with me; Each event occurs according to His decree; Our ship was tossed about in the Arabian Sea; But low and behold what did I see; A buoy in the shape of a cross – that bloody tree; May this memory from pride always set me free; May my boast be only Him to every degree; May all glory ever be to the great One in Three!
He's an army of one Who can't be beat; He's got more power than every navy fleet; He's better than all special forces elite; If you're on His side, you'll never face defeat; From the battle He'll never retreat; His supplies for the war never deplete; He'll never mistreat; With Him no one can compete; Every mission He'll perfectly complete and save His people from everlasting heat!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

For a few good men one may dare to die; But in this God shows His love so high; While we were still sinners, Christ died to buy; Salvation for all who would comply; So repent and believe – on Christ rely; He'll be your everlasting supply!
He gave His life on the battle field; To all temptations He'd never yield; From the grave He rose and salvation sealed and became our everlasting shield; He lived and died and rose and healed; To the world His Father He perfectly revealed; He returns with a sword of judgment to wield, so trust in Him and you won't be killed but instead be forever thrilled and with pleasures unspeakable be filled!
Every decoration He deserves and more; The Medal of Honor and all d├ęcor; He's more decorated than the whole Marine Corps; Alone on that cross He won the greatest war to save our souls and earth restore; Now Him alone we'll forever adore and find our delight eternally soar!
He won the battle against the great snake; Though His heal was bruised, the devil's head He'd break; The earth did quake, but He rose from the dead to end earth's ache, and finally cast the devil into the eternal, fiery lake; He'll make His dead people awake; And He did it all for His Father's great name sake!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Only Saving President Who Can Make You A Heavenly Resident And In Perfect Righteousness Represent!

My King was born president in the humble manger; For sin and righteousness He became the great exchanger; To suffering, pain, and death He was no stranger; But He rose up from the dead to become the only true world changer; From sin, death, and Hell He'll save you from all danger; And become your whole life's almighty rearranger!
He was elected by God as Head over His people; He died for His church and it's not a cathedral or wood under a steeple, but a group of people who've miraculously walked through the eye of a needle; And even though they're often feeble, by grace they wait on the LORD and mount up with wings like an eagle!
Neither Obama nor Romney can save your soul; Only Jesus is worthy to open the scroll; Men make promises, but they all have a hole because there's just so much man can't control; But the omnipotent Christ rules over the whole, and He alone ought to be number one on your poll; You'll find in Him alone the One worthy to extol!
The poor and the rich, unborn babies and women, every race and nation – He loves them all; He loves the politician who serves city hall and the brick mason too who builds the wall; He only demands that you heed His call to repent and believe and before Him fall; Believe the Gospel, and He'll forever enthrall!
He never spends more money than He has because He owns everything; He's not left or right wing, but of the whole universe He's sovereign King; The sun, moon, and stars from His hand He did fling; trust in the Gospel now and to Him alone cling; He'll make your heart sing; From your lips His praises must ring, and to you fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore He'll bring!
His budget is balanced all the time; He owns the whole world and every dime; He died to save sinners of any crime and grant them a richness that's truly sublime; He's the executive, legislative, and judicial branch all at the same time!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

He executes every action that needs to be taken; He died on the cross your soul to awaken; Follow Him and you'll never be mistaken; His rule and government can never be shaken; If by faith you're His you'll never be forsaken!
He's the law itself Who's come down from above; He's God in the flesh Who's perfect love; He's gentle and tender, just like a dove!
He's also the righteous judge of all the earth; He'll condemn all people who are without new birth, so come and acknowledge His infinite worth, and He'll fill you with everlasting, unquenchable mirth!
He only speaks the truth and never lies; Just like He said He would die and then rise; And win for His people the everlasting prize; Now He never dies; In and of Himself He's infinitely wise; He'll never compromise or demise, and He has all the best allies; He never needs to improvise or revise because He has all-knowing, perfect eyes; Trust in Him, and He'll fill you with infinite supplies; He only satisfies and fills your life with delightful surprise!
He only does what's right; His record is out of sight; Against all your enemies He won the fight; He's your indestructible, shining Knight Who's also the everlasting, unchanging Light; About Him you could infinitely write; He has all power and might and can save from your hellish plight; So trust in Him on election night, and He'll usher in everlasting joy and delight!
Though Adam was our federal head, He sinned and left us all for dead; Bearing the burden – lifelong dread; Now only Hell awaits ahead; But God has spoken, and He said; "I won't leave my people dead but elect a new federal Head Who will obey and love instead!  He'll be the everlasting Bread and stand in my people's stead;  He'll take their place as the True Adam dead!"  And as to death a lamb is lead, upon that cross He died and bled; But in Him all death fled; He rose from the grave and on death tread and now salvation is widespread!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Cuts Bureaucracy, Humbles Aristocracy, Shatters Hypocrisy, And Rules By Autocracy!

He despises man's ungodly tradition; To God's Word they seek to make an addition; But this is wholly contrary to Christ's mission and will fuel His holy temper ignition; He has a relentless holy ambition to save the self-righteous human condition and bring godless sinners to His full submission; So don't put your hopes in any politician, physician, superstition, or lofty recognition, but trust in Jesus' death and sin remission; By faith alone receive a righteous position, and acquire a growing holy disposition that declares against all sin outright opposition because the beauty of Christ has no competition!
His disciples ate with defiled hands, but it's the heart the eye of the LORD scans to see if in it righteousness stands and holiness continues and expands just as the LORD promises and demands; God supplies grace to obey what He commands, and He'll make His sons many like the ocean sands!
Jesus came to set free – to cut down the complex; His burden is easy and shouldn't perplex; Jewish rules were more and less than God expects; Killing heart-worship was one of their effects; But if you see the glory Christ reflects and the beauty His Person and work projects; You'll beg to be His royal subjects, delighting in Him as the best of objects!
Worship that's vain is completely insane; It's like the unacceptable sacrifice of Cain that's only profane; So break this evil chain, and turn to the Lamb Who was slain but now lives with full reign as the only One Who can end your pain; Worship Him from a pure heart to pleasure regain!
Hypocrisy He came to kill; True humility to instill with unprecedented skill; He did His Father's perfect will; He died upon mount Calvary's hill, and rose up from the dead with zeal; The law and the prophets to fulfill, and open history's every seal; He Himself became our meal; And to His name all people's kneel; Through His blood all nations heal; And He gives an everlasting thrill!

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

The Pharisees' hands had to be washed clean; Though their hearts were dirtier than a latrine; Outwardly they shine, clear, bright, and pristine, but inside they're dead and rotten gangrene; It's uglier than anything you've ever seen; Unless, of course, the Clean of cleans you've seen; Who makes even the dirtiest latrine clean, bright, and pristine; Brings to life gangrene and clears it from the scene; For sinners He'd intervene; He's the mediator and God's go-between in order to turn the ugliest into the most beautiful clean!
If your worship is fake; It's for your own sake; God's glory you take; Vile idols you make; You'll burn in the lake; Unless Christ makes you awake; Your sin forsake; Selfishness He'll break and save you from heart ache; In His glory you'll partake, and your life He'll remake; worship won't be fake, but done for His own name's sake!
God doesn't want honor merely from your lips; It's your whole life and heart He takes and grips; His delights flow down like the honeycomb drips; So come to Christ by faith and with joy He equips; From His river of pleasures you'll forever take sips where His glory will never suffer slips, trips, or eclipse!
God's holy commandments you shouldn't leave; But run to the glorious Christ and cleave; He saves if you'll only repent and believe; He died and rose, salvation to achieve; Dead, hell-bound sinners He came to retrieve; By His grace may you have new eyes to perceive; He lives for you now, your fears to relieve; He's the most precious gift you could ever receive; He's greater than all your mind could conceive!
He rules the world with almighty power; He's our refuge and strength, our strong high tower; All of our enemies He'll finally devour, though His tenderness and beauty bloom like a flower; May we be ready now, He returns any hour; Upon us great blessings He'll eternally shower!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Healer Of All, Reversed The Fall, And Conquers Every Sickness Big Or Small!

The people recognized Him when He got to the shore; He's the miracle worker they'd come to adore; For signs and wonders they'd beg for more; But His identity as God they seemed to ignore; Yet to be reconciled to God He's the only Door; At that cross His precious life-blood He'd pour; On His bloodied back your sins He bore, and then rose from the dead to win the war; All beauty and good to perfectly restore; And grant us fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore!
Jesus is the the center of attention; He's amazing and extraordinary in every dimension; Though He's eternal God, He made a lowly condescension to save sinners from Hell and every contention; His beauty and love are without comprehension, and after He made His glorious ascension, He calls us to go and His Gospel to mention; In all of our lives it demands utter submission and to every nation further extension for the fame of His name in every dimension!
Jesus is available to all who see their need; He's quick to accomplish every good deed; For every repentant sinner He came to bleed; And in them plant His everlasting seed so that they would believe His creed and follow His lead to be fully freed!
Jesus came showing mercy and love; He's gentle and tender, just like a dove; He's the God Who is love that's come down from above!
When Adam fell into sin the whole world was lost; But at great personal cost Jesus came to reverse the loss and do even more at the cross!

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

There's nothing on earth that Jesus can't heal; No matter what's wrong or how bad you feel, if to Him by faith you make your appeal, He'll always work His perfect will, and give you what's best – that's the ideal; So don't go to Him to make a deal, but pour out your heart and before Him be real, and His perfect plan for your life He'll reveal!
Because of sin we get sick and die, but when it comes to specifics we don't know why; Sometimes if you lie, you may get pinkeye; but others like Job don't sin or defy, yet sickness they get no matter how hard they try; So for righteousness aim high; On your own understanding don't rely; Trust in our God's endless supply of love that never runs dry and into His fatherly arms always fly; For His mercy never cease to cry, and He'll make all things beautiful in the great by and by!
We long for a day of no more sickness, death, and pain; When the curse will be gone and nothing will be vain; To win this new day Jesus came to be slain; He had to suffer and die and be counted profane; Then rise from the grave, paradise to regain; He started everything we'll finally attain, but there's more to come so don't complain; The "already – not yet" theologians try to explain; When Jesus comes back there'll be a whole new domain where a new earth and new bodies this world will contain; Then all sin and death will have no more reign, again the world will be sane, over all the earth God's glory will forever remain because Jesus Christ is worthy to obtain!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The I AM HE Who Passed By On The Sea, Makes Fears Flee, And Sets Hearts Free!

He's the sea walker, fear blocker, wind rocker, and disciple shocker!
He went up on the mountain to pray; His Father always showed Him the way so He wouldn't go astray but be faithful in all He'd do and say; His disciples He'd soon dismay as He put on display His beauty and power in  glorious array which reached its climax when on that cross they'd slay, but He'd forever take away all fear and every kind of decay, and all His children with good repay, for He rose up from the grave on the third day!
The wind pushed the disciples back; The sea and sky were black, and they seemed to be off track; strength to move forward they'd lack, but then they saw something that 'bout made them crack – God on the sea right now we'll unpack!
Job said it's God Who treads upon the wave, but that's how we see Jesus behave; Now He Himself is all the rave, for God so loved the world He gave that He might save sinners who misbehave, make them His slave, and grant them Him alone to crave!
They saw Him walking on the sea, showing His identity is key; He is the I AM HE Who alone can set you free from needing any he or she because He Himself your all must be!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

After He satisfied them all with bread and sent the disciples on ahead, upon the waters Jesus tread and filled the disciples all with dread; But then He turned His head and with conviction said “I AM!” And that's what God to Moses said!  So let all your dread be dead and never spread but put your trust in Him instead, for you know He bled and rose from the dead to be the Church's perfect Head!
Many question His passing by; They wonder and ask why; But if you have an Old Testament eye; "This is amazing!" you might reply, for it shows us Jesus is God Most High, since it's God Himself Who passes by and God in the flesh has now drawn nigh, so at these truths don't sigh, but drink deeply from His infinite supply and to Him for mercy cry!
The great I AM gets in the boat; By His Word the world's afloat; To show His identity Mark wrote; He doesn't need your support or vote; To Him alone all allegiance we must devote!
If you trust Him then don't be afraid; He'll be your unshakable aid and life giving shade; Your heart He'll invade just as you prayed; You won't be swayed even at the threat of a blade because to you unspeakable love He's displayed; With His life He paid on that cross we've surveyed in the tomb He was laid, but death He'd evade and with glory is forever arrayed!
So don't harden your heart; You don't have to be smart; Just believe in your heart, and He'll set you apart; No matter what you've done, you'll get a fresh start, and He'll recreate your life like precious fine art!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Prophet, Good Shepherd, And Provider Whose Strong Arms Of Mercy Can't Be Opened Wider!

He had compassion on the crowed, though they were proud and without a leader poorly endowed; He taught them truth out loud while they sat under the cloud until their stomachs growled and with His power to provide He wowed the crowed and gave them more food than their appetites allowed; He's God come down and they should have bowed and to Him alone all allegiance avowed!
People came to Him from every place, though He had no desirable face; He and His disciples couldn't hide from the chase or slow down their pace, and they had no personal space, but He kept showing love and grace that would eventually spread to every race!
He's the Prophet like Moses Who was to come, though they didn't know where He came from;  He was spit upon, killed, and treated like scum, but He rose from the grave, lifting up from the slum; Of all beauty and good He's the infinite sum!  
He's the Good Shepherd Who had to die; "Is there another way?!" was His holy cry; Forsaken on the cross He asked His Father why; He obeyed the Divine will and did comply, without a sigh He glorified the Most High and kept His eye fixed on the joy to come by and by to win for us mercy of endless supply if on Him alone we'll only rely so what's your reply; To His arms may you forever fly!

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

He's the Bread of Life Who died for His wife in order to finally end all strife!
He's the Bread that was broken; an incomparable token; God's final Word spoken; From the dead He's awoken to save His chosen, restore their emotion, and win their devotion as He makes a way open to enjoy His bottomless love-mercy ocean!
He's the Bread Who came down to wipe away the Father's frown; He won the crown for His Father's renown, He's the most precious noun of any town around; In His glory and beauty we can drown; When sin increases His grace will abound; He's the Master of the lost and found; He's like the heavenly hound; He'll chase you down; He died but rose up from the ground so His mercy would surround, His enemies confound, and His people forever astound with His glory unspeakably profound!
All your needs He will provide since He died to make you His bride; He'll kill your pride and be your guide; He's forever and always on your side; So put all sin aside and in Him abide, even though your tempted and tried His arms are open wide; So run to Him and in His mercy hide and spread His Gospel worldwide so you can praise His name in heaven with all nations side by side!
He satisfies the desire of every living thing; Of all pleasure and joy He's the everlasting spring; He can't help but make you sing because of all the delight He'll bring; So turn from every other empty fling and flee to Him and cling because He's the only all satisfying King!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Everlasting Rest Who Past The Test So We Could Be Forever Blessed!

He created the world in the very beginning; His work was good, and He was grinning; But then man rebelled and since then we've all been sinning; So God became man and against all enemies began winning; To clean up the mess until there's perfect rest in the final inning!
He made everything from nothing; Then He rested without rushing; He's the Creator Who's so loving that we long for His second coming!
Jesus worked hard, and calls us to follow; If not, our profession of faith seems quite hollow!
His grace empowers us to work hard which He purchased through His body marred, His hands scarred, and His fellowship with the Father barred on that cross where He was treated with all disregard!
Then up from the grave He arose; With a mighty triumph o'er all His foes; He didn't in the least bit decompose, and all they found was His grave clothes; And now everywhere He goes He shows salvation to all He knows who don't oppose but find in Him everlasting repose!

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

He commanded His disciples to rest awhile after preaching all men must repent and reconcile!
Because He's in control, we can rest and sleep; He keeps us as His precious sheep; Our redemption price wasn't cheap; It caused Him to cry, pray, wail, and weep; But because His sacrifice was eternally deep, we can be sure our lives He'll forever keep!
The first Adam failed the test and was restricted from the Sabbath rest; Sin he failed to detest, the truth He suppressed and was with himself too impressed so that he caused universal distress and unrest; But Jesus came on a dominating conquest; With His Father's will He was obsessed in order to free the oppressed so that we could be blessed by the best from the east to the west!
Israel failed to stay in the promised land; They didn't obey God's every command even though He brought them out of Egypt with a mighty hand; But Jesus, the True Israel, met God's every demand; Him the devil couldn't withstand; He died on the cross just as God planned, and up from the grave He rose to stand so that the children of Abraham would be as numerous as the stars and the sand!
He's the Everlasting Rest worthy to take the scroll; Both the Lion and the Lamb Who fulfilled God's goal; For He was slain on that cross and took control to make all peoples one on the church roll; So find rest in Jesus, and He'll make you whole; turn from your sin and trust Him to save your soul!
He's the only rest that truly gives delight; All others compared are shallow and light and after awhile they all take flight; But the joy He gives satisfies to an infinite height, and He's the only one with an everlasting bite; So be contrite and for this rest fight to enter into His everlasting bright where there's no more tears or night but only holy delight!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Whose Name Demands Fame Which We Must Die To Proclaim!

He so lived and so spoke that His name became known; Since then His fame has continually grown for He must be honored just as His Father on the throne; He humbled Himself to the point of death all alone; He absorbed God's wrath for sin to atone; Yet He's alive forevermore, from the grave He's flown; All over the world His Gospel will be sown, calling sinners to Himself and making them His very own!
He's the God-man with incomparable fame; He came to heal the lame and all those afflicted with shame; He's the Lion of God Who's good but not tame; His followers must aim to proclaim the wonderful excellencies of His great, matchless name!
Holiness and righteousness are His demand; Life with Him is not bland but abundantly grand; His love and beauty you can't withstand; Your life couldn't be better planned; So reach out by faith and take His hand; Fight for holiness and take your stand, striving to obey His every command; So that one day you'll enter the promised land!
About Him we must speak; He's utterly unique; Don't worry about your technique or your voice mild and weak; But only seek with a heart that's meek to tell of a future so bleak without the glorious salvation He purchased during holy week!

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

When Jesus calls you, He calls you to death, but in the process He'll take away your breath, and ultimately give you a high better than meth!
Some like John will die as a martyr; Life on earth couldn't be harder, but God's truth over life they do prefer; Threats of suffering and death will not deter; For Christ's love in their hearts will captivate and stir; a great reward God will eternally confer!
Others will die smaller deaths day by day; Death to self and to all the "good things" He seems to delay; The idols of the heart we're called to slay; Christ must be first, it's the only way; So your number one lover don't betray, but cry "Christ is all!" and His worth display!
Don't sigh and ask Him why; Just plead and cry for Him to help you die and fix your eye on His everlasting supply; Full of love, joy, and mercy that'll never run dry; Him you'll never deny, but to His everlasting arms you'll fly and with His infinite beauty He'll forever satisfy!
What you so long for is only a whore; It's stealing your love and only wants more; It you must abhor and deplore; Against it make war I implore so that you might be set free to soar up from the floor and fly to explore the King's great beauty galore where there's fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Reproducing Rabbi With All Authority On High Who Gives An Endless Supply!

He's the great God of the irresistible call; We just saw Him still the wind squall and stop the demon brawl; If He calls you He'll never let you fall; But fill you with delight as your satisfying all in all!
There's no one like Him, that's for sure; His grace and beauty will allure; From sin and wrath He's the double cure; He died and rose to make you pure; your everlasting life to make secure!
If you're His disciple, to the lost you'll be sent just like these twelve trusted Him and went; Your great King you'll represent to accomplish His merciful intent; His heart from wrath longs to relent; His first desire is not to torment or cause lament, but He pleads with everyone everywhere to repent so that He might present His infinite love and mercy to the world without extent!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

He possesses all authority in heaven and on earth; Therefore we should spread His Gospel from Philadelphia to Perth so that others might experience the miraculous new birth and enjoy everlasting mirth as they treasure Christ's amazing, incomparable worth!
If you reject Him, there's only a curse; Your everlasting destruction in hell couldn't be worse; Your dead and already in a hearse; But turn from your sin and trust in Him; Your eternal destiny He'll reverse; With love, joy, and mercy He'll immerse; And all your losses in this life He'll forever reimburse!
If you have Him, He's all you need; From all greed you'll be freed; So simply proceed to plant His seed just as He decreed; He'll supply your every need for every good deed; So go with the Gospel and plead, knowing everyone won't be agreed and for some you may even bleed just like your Savior when He was treed; But know this for certain, the Gospel will succeed and save everyone for whom Christ died indeed!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Teacher, Offender, And Human Soul Mender!

He's the truth defender Who calls for surrender; The disciple maker and sender; The all races blender; The forever evil suspender; The teacher Who's tender and gloriously arrayed in unimaginable splendor!
His true disciples must trust and follow Him; Otherwise their claims to love Him are just a whim; And their future's only dim and grim; So don't just sing a hymn; But delight in Him to find joy filled to the brim; And in Him, your ocean of pleasure, you can forever swim!
In Nazareth He met rejection; They showed Him no affection; To His person and work they gave objection; This made clear their sinful infection; Because He's the ultimate display of all perfection; And He forever proved this through His death and resurrection; Giving glory to His Father of Whom He's the exact reflection; And forever cleansing His people from all imperfection!
He's the teacher of teachers Who's also the Prince of preachers; He powerfully rules over every creature, and by an infinite distance He's the universe's most beautiful feature!

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

When they heard Him they were dazed and amazed; But their hearts were left unfazed when they should have bowed down and praised this God-man Who would soon die and be raised!
His hometown He offended when instead they should have comprehended His divine character and beauty truly splendid; On that cross He was expended and His life was ended but then forever extended just as His Father always intended!
He's the greatest Prophet without honor; Yet there's no one fonder; He's the only one to conquer; All for the glory of His Father!
Faith in Him they truly lacked; though reasons to trust Him couldn't be more packed, stacked, or better backed; But still He'd interact until finally they attacked but through His death He had the greatest impact!
So won't you trust Him now; To delight in Him He'll show you how; To be His co-heir He'll allow; To you the whole world He'll endow; He'll mend your soul and with joy lift your brow; To Him alone you'll bow and enjoy in His presence the everlasting wow!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's Worthy To Follow In Every Matter, Not To Flatter, But All Sin To Shatter!

True disciples will follow the Master; They hate their sin which brings only disaster; They flee to Christ all the faster; Bringing joy and delight to their fearful pastor!
Jesus is worthy to obey, whatever the cost; Compared to Him all is counted as lost; If by trials and fears you're tossed; His mercy and love you'll never exhaust!
Every single sin will keep you from heaven; Not just the bigs ones or the deadly seven; All of them spread like gangrene leaven; Your ability to hear from God they deafen!
But Jesus came to die for all kinds of sin; All the sin that has been and all the sin that's within; Even the sin you can't mention to your kin!
In His name and by His Spirit we gain justification and sanctification to save us from all condemnation and damnation because with God He's given us a new relation in which we'll fall before Him in prostration and elation to give Him all adoration for this great salvation!
He's gracious and merciful, even when we fail; With compassion and tenderness He'll care for the frail; Compared to all others their kindness is pale; For on that cross He brought us to God and lifted the veil!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

So follow the true God, all others are sad; they're a short lived fad only leading to bad; If you trust them you'll wish you never had; But trust in Jesus alone, and He'll make you glad!
God ordained the Church to help us follow Him alone; He rules her from heaven seated on His throne; Unrepentant sin she must never condone; And if they don't turn she must even disown!
But this is done in hope and love to restore; Even though it's a chore and your insides tore; The goal of it all is to open a door; To welcome the sinner back to praise and adore; The God of heaven with Whom they once were at war!
For God's glory we do this when one's gone amiss; We again long for justice and mercy to kiss; We must dismiss or we would be remiss; But the end goal is the offender's eternal bliss!
We do this because Jesus is just that great; His glory shines forth with unbearable weight; He wants His Church within the straight gate; To be holy and pure more than any gold plate in order that His beauty to the world might translate!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Lost Everything So That You Might Gain Everything!

The everlasting peace He enjoyed was turned into hostility and pain as He suffered the wrath of His Father on that cross so that you might be justified and have peace with God!
He endured the condemnation you deserved so that now you are free from condemnation forever!
He was crushed on that cross for all your sins – past, present, and future – so that now where your sin abounds, grace abounds for you all the more!
He contains in Himself all the treasures of wisdom, knowledge, and perfect righteousness so that by faith in Him you can receive Him as your wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption!
He was made your sin and crushed on the cross so that now you are made righteous in Him!
He's the Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Lamb Who was slain so that now you are righteous and can be as bold as a lion!
Your sins were brought near Him, counted as His, and He suffered for them so that now they are removed from you as far as the east is from the west!
He met your sins and their punishment head on at the cross so that now they have all been cast behind the LORD's back!
The Father remembered your sins in Jesus on the cross so that now they have been blotted out for His own sake, and He will remember them no more!
He Who's whiter than the purest light was made filthy with your sins so that now, though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow!
He conquered every temptation He ever faced, never sinned once in the smallest way, and was obedient all the way unto death on the cross so that now, by grace through faith, you died with Him and died to the power of sin's rule over your life!

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

He was wounded for your transgressions; bruised for your iniquities; and the chastisement for your peace was upon Him!
He was made an enemy of God and utterly vanquished on that cross so that now your enemies should not rejoice over you.  For when you fall, you shall arise; when you sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light to you.  You shall bear the indignation of the LORD because you have sinned against Him, until He pleads your case and executes justice for you.  He will bring you forth to the light; You will see His righteousness!
God did not merely pardon your sins or pass over your transgressions.  Instead, He chose not to restrain His anger or have mercy on His own Son, but He delighted to crush Jesus on the cross in your place.  Therefore, your God is unlike any other, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage.  He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy.  He will again have compassion on you, and will subdue your iniquities.  He will cast all your sins into the depths of the sea.  Micah 7:18-19
On the cross where His Son hung, the Father showed no grace or mercy; displayed the full measure of His anger; exhibited no lovingkindness; and did not relent from doing harm to His own Son so that now He might be gracious and merciful to you; slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness; One who relents from doing harm against you because Jesus paid it all, taking all the harm upon Himself!
He Who alone earned the right to have the highest honor in the Father's eyes was abandoned on that cross so that now you might be kept as the apple of God's eye!
He died in the place of the wicked Barabbas and in the place of all those wicked ones His Father had given Him so that now the Father might have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn and live!
On that cross, Jesus was cast out and forsaken by the Father so that now, if you come to Him, He will by no means cast you out!

That's my King!

On that cross, Jesus perished in your place so that now if you believe in Him, you will not perish, but have everlasting life!
He faced the fierceness of God's infinite wrath on the cross so that now you have been saved from this everlasting wrath in hell where the fire is unquenchable and where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth!
He has the greatest mind in the universe – no one can instruct Him!  His mind is the most wise, the most knowledgeable, the most keen, and the most humble, and in Him, you have the very mind of Christ!
He's the temple Who was torn down and rebuilt in three days!
He's the most beautiful, the most glorious, the most precious temple of the LORD, and by grace through faith, you are united to Him – You are the temple of the Holy Spirit; you were bought with a price; and you are not your own for He purchased you with His own blood!
He was established in strength like no other, and He had the Holy Spirit upon Him in power and without measure.  And you have been established in Christ, sealed, and you have been given the Holy Spirit in your heart as a guarantee of your inheritance!
He was crucified and died, but He rose again in power and glory to newness of  life, conquering sin, death, and Satan.  And you have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer you who live, but Christ lives in you!
He embodied and lived out every spiritual blessing imaginable, and you have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ!
He's the holiest of the holy and the most blameless of the blameless.  And you have been chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, that you should be holy and without blame before Him in love!
He's the preeminent Son of God, and you have been predestined to adoption as sons of God!

That's my King!

Though He died on the cross, He's alive now!  You too have been made alive together with Christ!
He came down from the heavenly places to be mocked, mistreated, beaten, and killed because of your sin so that now you have been made to sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus!
His access to the Father was cut off on the cross so that now you have access by one Spirit to the Father!
You have boldness and access to God with confidence through faith in Him!
Darkness overcame Him on the cross so that now we have been delivered from the power of darkness and conveyed into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins!
He suffered for you so that now He is in you!
He emptied Himself on that cross so that now you are complete in Him!
In the Garden of Gethsemane, He deeply feared the wrath of God, and He feared being excluded from the presence of His Father so that now you have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind!
He's the perfectly sanctified One and in Him, you are sanctified and one with the sanctifier, therefore Jesus calls you his brother!
On that cross, He was cut off from God's grace, obtained no mercy, and found no help from anyone in His greatest time of need so that now you can come boldly to the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need!
All the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Jesus bodily, and through His perfect work, you have been given exceedingly great and precious promises, that through them you may be partakers of the divine nature!
He's the saltiest salt and the brightest light of the world so that now, in Him, you are the salt of the earth and the light of the world!

That's my King!  I wonder if He's your light of lights today?!

He's a friend of tax collectors and sinners, and now He calls you His friend!
He produced the most beautiful, sweetest, and longest lasting fruit through His life, death, and resurrection so that now you are chosen and appointed by Him to go and bear lasting fruit!
He was the most submissive, joyful, righteous, and obedient slave of God to ever live on earth so that now you are a slave of righteousness and a slave of God!
He left all His glorious, heavenly inheritance in order to come to earth, take on human flesh, and suffer for your sins.  In Him, you are an heir of God and a joint heir with Christ!
He gave His body to be beaten, hit, spit upon, and crucified so that now you are a member of the body of Christ!
Through His death and resurrection, the first fruits of the new creation have arrived so that now, in Christ, you are a new creation!
He was the greatest saint Who ever lived, so that now, in Him, you too are a saint!
He was holy and righteous like no other so that now, in Him, you are holy and righteous too!
He was exposed, naked, and abandoned on the cross so that now your life is safely hidden with Christ in God for all eternity!
Jesus, the beloved Son in Whom the Father was well pleased, was made an object of wrath on the cross so that now you are the elect of God, holy and beloved!
Jesus, the only true Person of God Who alone lived a fully pleasing life in the Father's sight, was the Priest Who interceded with His own body on the cross so that now you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, the people of God!
On that cross, all His strength was dried up and consumed; He was a man Who had no strength so that now you can do all things through Christ Who strengthens you!

That's my King!

On that cross, He did not even receive a cup of water when He needed it so that now you have all your needs supplied according to God's riches in glory by Christ Jesus!
On that cross, He seemed to lose all confidence when He cried out, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?!" so that now you have the LORD as the strength of your life and as your confidence!
In His glorious death and resurrection, Jesus triumphed over all His and your enemies so that now you shall always be led by God to triumph in Christ!
In the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross, He endured and triumphed over the greatest worries, fears, and anxieties ever known to man so that now you can cast all your worries, fears, and anxieties on God because He cares for you!
On that cross, He was forsaken and left utterly alone so that now you are never alone for Christ is always with you, and He will never leave you nor forsake you!
On that cross, Jesus manifested the ultimate picture of the greatest strength wrapped in the most lowly weakness so that now you should boast in your weaknesses that the power of Christ may rest upon you because His grace is sufficient for you, for His strength is made perfect in weakness!
Through the cross of Christ, God brought the greatest good out of the greatest evil so that now, though you are not a lot of things you should be, you can take heart since God has chosen the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are so that no flesh should glory in His presence!
Through the resurrection of Jesus, God did what is impossible for man.  Therefore, your God is the God of the impossible so that now, in any and every hopeless situation, against all hope you can have hope in your great God of the impossible!  Your God is the God of the resurrection so you can  grow strong in your faith, giving glory to God!

That's my King!

Through the cross, Jesus purchased all you need for life, ministry, and godliness so that now you have your sufficiency from God, and He is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work!
On that cross, He was a fragrant offering and a well pleasing sacrifice to God so that now you have God working in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure!
On that cross, He more than conquered all your enemies so that now you will do valiantly through God for it is He who shall tread down your enemies!
On that cross, He was shut out of the glorious, all satisfying presence of His Father because of your sin so that now you will have fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore one day forever in God's very presence!
On that cross, Jesus endured the hardest and most infinite affliction in your place so that now your momentary and light affliction, which is for a moment, is working for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, and your present sufferings are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in you!
In His life and death, Jesus shed many tears; endured much pain and sorrow on your behalf; and resisted every sin all the way to an obedient death on the cross so that now you have certainty that one day you shall have no more tears, no more sorrow, no more pain; there shall be no more death and no more sin!
The Father's love for the Son is infinitely great.  Yet He did not spare His own Son but delivered Him up for us all.  Therefore, since He has given us the greatest gift imaginable in His Son, surely He will also freely give us all things!

That's my King!  Is He the great thing of "all things" to you?

In His life and death, Jesus experienced tribulation, distress, persecution, hunger, thirst, nakedness, peril, the nails and spear at the cross, and the infinite wrath of God so that now you shall not be separated from the love of Christ for any of these reasons or for any other reason in the universe.  No trial in your life should ever make you doubt God's love for you.  Even in all your hardships, God's love is strong toward you.  He has given the greatest evidence of His love for you at the cross when He crushed His one and only beloved Son in your place!
On that cross, the Father did not come to Jesus' aid in any way so that now you have certain and unshakable promises causing you to be strong, courageous, and fearless because God is with you, and He is your God and will strengthen you and help you and uphold you with His righteous right hand!
On that cross, Jesus was excluded from the joy of the LORD so that now you will one day enter into the joy of your LORD!
Jesus went to the cross according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, and His enemies were gathered against Him to do whatever God's hand and His purpose determined before to be done.  Therefore, since God is in absolute control of the most wicked action in the universe (the crucifixion of Jesus), and He worked it for your good, you can rest assured in the following truths about God's absolute sovereignty working for your good in every and all situations!
Your hairs are numbered and if not even a little bird can fall to the ground apart from God's will, you should fear nothing for God loves you much more than little birds!
In His book they all were written – every detail of every day fashioned by Him for your good before even one came into being!
All your times are in His hands!

That's my King!

All things work according to His will!
As your days are, so shall your strength be and underneath are the everlasting arms!
Your right hand is held by God, and He will guide you with His counsel!
Everything worked against Jesus for His destruction on that cross so that now, all things, even those things meant for evil against you, are working together for your good!
Because of Jesus' perfect life and death, if you sin, you have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous!
If you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive you your sins and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness!
On that cross, the Father was against Jesus, condemning Him for your sake, so that now you can never be condemned because God is absolutely for you forever and no one can be against you!
In His death and resurrection, Jesus more than conquered all powers, enemies, and evils so that now you are more than a conqueror through Him who loved you!
On that cross, Jesus was crushed by God with the equivalent of an everlasting punishment so that now you are loved by God with an everlasting love!
On that cross, Jesus was cut off from the fullness of God's house and drank from the river of His wrath so that now God satisfies you with the fullness of His house and gives you drink from the river of His pleasures!
On that cross, the Father delighted to bruise the Son so that now God delights in you and as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so shall your God rejoice over you!
On that cross, the Father rejoiced to punish the Son so that now God will rejoice over you with gladness, and He will quiet you with His love!

That's my King!

Jesus, the greatest treasure in the universe, was abandoned on the cross so that you might be God's special treasure in Christ!
On that cross, the Father showed no mercy to the Son, so that now you might give the Father pleasure when you hope in His mercy!
On that cross, Jesus' appearance was marred beyond human form.  There were no smiles on His face and no laughter came from His mouth so that now you may smile at all your enemies and laugh at the future because of the salvation He purchased for you!
On that cross, the delight and desire of Jesus' heart, His very own Father, abandoned Him so that now if you delight yourself in the LORD, you will receive the desires of your heart!
While Jesus was on the cross, darkness was over the whole land and the light of the world was extinguished so that now one day you might shine like the sun in the kingdom of your Father!
On that cross, the Father withheld all good things from the Son so that now if you seek the LORD, you shall not lack any good thing!
On that cross, the Father pursued the Son with anger and condemnation so that now your heavenly Father, like the Hound of Heaven, is pursuing you relentlessly with goodness and mercy all the days of your life!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Death Killer, Life Giver, And Man Thriller!

It's God alone Who kills and makes alive; When Jesus came in human flesh these powers arrive; And in Him on earth this authority was made to thrive; From this the truth we must derive:  you must bow to Jesus as Lord and God in order to survive, be revived, and from heaven not be eternally deprived!
He put an end to death's slavery by His unparalleled bravery so that life for us could be unimaginably savory!
He's the Author of Life, suffered under the knife, will finally put an end to all strife, and He's better than any husband or wife or anything else in all of life!
He's the Living Water Who raised the dead daughter and saves sinners from the hell that's hotter by His own slaughter as the great sovereign Potter!
He's the Living Bread Who bled until He was dead in order to spread the unspeakable joy that lies ahead!
He's the Living Stone Who's the Savior alone; He was whipped to the bone and died with a groan in order to ascend to the throne so that all our enemies might be forever overthrown!
He's the Living Word; To ignore Him would be absurd; Listen to Him that your heart might be stirred, and take His Gospel to all those who've never heard!
He's the Living LORD Whose Word is a two-edged sword; with Him you should never be bored but only floored the more He's explored; He can't be ignored but only and always forever adored!

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

He said only believe; His grace you'll receive; Your side He'll never leave; to Him alone must the desperate cleave; No need to grieve; He'll fill you with delight impossible to conceive!
Don't ever doubt; cast every fear out; all anxiety you can live without and be filled with joy that exceeds any amount and even makes you shout!
Jairus' little girl was dead; his heart filled with dread; hopelessness seemed to spread; But then Jesus said:  "Little girl get up from your bed!" She rose up and was fed by the Living Bread and amazement with Jesus was quickly widespread!
To conquer death He died; He was crucified; sin and Satan He defied; He was pierced in His side; redemption He did provide and opened the flood gates of eternal life worldwide!
Like no other He rose up from the tomb after the earthquake boom; All those who were raised before Him death would again consume, but He was different from the womb and rose up to banish forever all doom and gloom just like He said in the upper room so that perfect fellowship between God and man would once again resume only better than we could ever assume!
Come to Him and forever live; Abundant grace and mercy He'll give and forgive; He won't be vindictive or restrictive, but He'll make Himself forever addictive!
In amazement He'll take your breath away; He'll thrill you each new day; He'll leave you not knowing what to say; May you always follow His way and not sway or go astray but only pray and obey and may our great Lord Jesus Christ come quickly without delay, even so Lord come back today!

That's my King!  That's my King!

He's the cleanest and keenest Who's furtherest from the meanest!

He heals all our diseases and seizes what pleases through the cross alone His Father He appeases!
If you want to be clean, don't wait seven days, there are no delays, just turn your gaze to His face full of praise!
You can be pure, for His victory is sure through which He Himself is the cure!
He came to clean the inside of the cup – to show us down is the new up so that with God we might forever sup!
His blood sprinkles clean hearts from the beginning He starts and doesn't stop till He cleanses all parts!
He became unclean on that cross where everything He lost as He counted the cost – His love we can never exhaust though we're tossed, bossed, and by all manner of trials criss-crossed!

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

Through His death on the tree He makes dirt of every degree flee, just make your plea and come and see how you can be set free by the great One in Three!
He'll help you do drugs and alcohol no more; they've left your life sore; they're only a bore; His law you ignore; from your true life they tore; but He can restore and make you adore – His goodness and mercy forevermore!
If to sexual addiction you're chained, His blood was drained that you could be reclaimed and have your purity regained and enjoy eternal life unstained!
If you've faced abuse in the past, His love and grace are so vast, He can heal what's amassed and your past He'll recast at last into joy and peace unsurpassed!
If to pride you've not yet died, He was pierced in His side to make you His humble bride with Him to forever abide!
He'll set you free from the love of money - on the cross He got bloody to show you His love is sweeter than honey and brighter than sunny!
If your anger you can't control, He'll make you whole 'cause He gave up His soul, therefore He's worthy to open the scroll with God's glory as His most holy goal!
No matter what your sin whether you're addicted to skin, gin, what has been, or all manner of darkness within Jesus can win!
For He didn't just die when He let out the cry into the dark sky seen by every eye!
He said:  "It is finished!" and His glory would never be diminished!
He rose up from the grave so that you He might save, make you brave, and cause you to Him alone crave!

That's my King!  That's my King!

He swallows up all blood shed with an unquenchable waterfall of His own blood!
His blood flowed out until He was dead so we could enjoy life without any dread!

His blood is more precious than all the oceans of gold in millions of universes!
Machen said one drop of His blood has more value for our own salvation and for the hope of this world than all the rivers of blood that have flowed upon the battlefields of history!

That's my King!  I wonder if you're covered in His blood today?!

The voice of His blood cries out louder than that of Abel's so that the curse on creation might be totally reversed!
Life is in the blood and the blood is the life, and He lived the life of lives so that through His blood we might have life!
His is the passover blood that we place over the doorposts of our hearts by faith to save us from the wrath to come!
His blood alone can purify, sanctify, and justify all those who turn and trust in Him!
His innocent blood was shed to save guilty blood of every shade, grade, and escapade!
God required His blood to be poured out so that the wicked person who repents will not die for his own sin!
His blood of the New Covenant was poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins!
Faced with the agonizing reality of the cross, His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground!
Unless you eat His flesh and drink His blood, you have no life in you!
Whoever feeds on His flesh and drinks His blood has eternal life, and He'll raise You up on the last day!

That's my King!

He's God and obtained the church with His own blood!
God put Him forward as an anger removing sacrifice by His blood, to be received by faith!
We've been justified by His blood!
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace!
In Him you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ!
Through Him God is reconciling all things to Himself, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of His cross!
He entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of His own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

He offered Himself without blemish to God, through the eternal Spirit, so that His blood might purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God!
Now we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus!
He suffered outside the gate in order to sanctify the people through His own blood!
You were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot!
His blood cleanses us from all sin!
He loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood!
By His blood He ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation!
He makes dirty robes of sin and filthiness clean by washing them in His blood – the blood of the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world!
We conquer by the blood of the Lamb!
Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever!  Amen!

That's my King!  That's my King!

He was absolutely crushed in defeat so that He and all His blood-bought people might never be defeated again!
God raised Him up from grave, victorious over sin, death, and Satan for all time so that by faith in Him you might win the victory too!
He ran to obtain the prize!
He exercised self-control in all things like no other!
He did not run to receive a perishable wreath, but an imperishable one, and He did receive it so that we might go and do likewise!
Therefore, let us also lay aside every weight and sin which clings so closely!
Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us by looking to Jesus, the Founder and Perfecter of our faith!
For the joy that was set before Him, He endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God!
Consider Him who endured from sinners such hostility against Himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted!

That's my King!  That's my King!
