"That's My King!" Who's Lord Of The Sabbath!

God Almighty made the Sabbath after He created the world in six days and rested on the seventh!
God Almighty commanded the Sabbath on the trembling Mount Sinai filled with fire, smoke, lightning, and thunder!
God Almighty commanded a man to be put to death for picking up sticks on the Sabbath!
And Jesus comes on the scene and boldly declares: "I am Lord, Master, and King even of the Sabbath! The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath!"
Jesus is God Almighty!
By Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities – all things were created through Him and for Him!
He's before all things, and in Him all things hold together!
Without Him nothing was made that was made!
He's our true peace and sabbath rest!
He gives everlasting rest to all the burdened and heavy laden who come and seek refuge in Him!
He's gentle and lowly in heart and gives rest for the soul!
His yoke is easy, and His burden is light!
He gives commandments with just as much authority as His heavenly Father!
When He taught the Law of Moses He said over and over again: "You have heard it said; But I say unto You!"
Whoever does not obey Him shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on them!

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

He's Lord of the most important day in the creation of the world!
He's Lord of the holiest of the holy days of God's people Israel!
He's Lord of what Sabbath always pointed to – the New Heavens and the New Earth in the fully realized Kingdom of God!
He's Lord of every square inch of planet earth!
He's Lord of all creation!
He's Lord of all kings, presidents, rulers, and authorities no matter how good or corrupt they are!
He's Lord of all elections and leaders in public office!
He's Lord of all storms, earthquakes, fires, famines, floods, and frightening accidents!
He's Lord of all sin because He died for sin, turned away the wrath of God from sinners, rose up from the grave, conquered sin and death, and breaks the power of canceled sin and sets the captives free!
His resurrection achievement is so great that it forever changed the day on which His people meet together for worship – we go from Sabbath Saturday to Lord's Day Sunday until He comes back to take us to everlasting rest!
He's Lord of the devil because He came to destroy all the works of the devil!
He's Lord of all the evil that's ever been committed in this world!
And since He's Lord of all evil, though evil people mean evil for evil, He means it all for good!
He's Lord of all the evil in your life, and He means it all for good!

That's my King!

He's Lord of your sin and means to crush every single trace of it all out of your life forever!
He's Lord of your addiction to drugs and alcohol!
He's Lord of your addiction to lust and pornography!
He's Lord of your uncontrollable temper!
He's Lord of your slavery to any idol in your life!
He's Lord of your pride and will obliterate it at any cost!
He's Lord of all the circumstances in your life, and He's working them all for your good if you're His blood bought child!
He's Lord of all the hairs of your head!
He's Lord of all your painful losses, failures, and rejections!
He's Lord of all your sicknesses, diseases, and physical pains!
He's Lord of every sadness you've ever experienced in this life, and He's working it only to increase your everlasting joy throughout all eternity!
He's the Lord Who expects you to submit and follow Him in all that He commands you!
But He's a good and merciful Lord Who forgives you when you fail, upholds you and empowers you to obey Him, and only commands you to do what is best for you and for your greatest and longest lasting joy!
He's Lord of life; Lord of death; Lord of heaven; Lord of hell; Lord of all; and Lord of Lords!

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