"That's My King!" Who Can Make The Dirtiest Clean!

He made both the clean and unclean animal, but proclaimed all foods acceptable through His life infallible and radical giving us joy in God maximal!
He's the clean place Who makes all the ground around Him clean space no matter how base by His amazing grace!
He's the cleanest and keenest Who's furtherest from the meanest!
He's clean like you've never seen, perfect in every gene, the purest, holiest scene, more majestic than any queen!
In His blood take a bath to save you from God's wrath and lead you down salvation's everlasting path!
His life, death, and resurrection cry:  "Atone!"  For this purpose His Word was sown to break our hearts of stone that we might never be alone but truly be known by the God Who saved us for His own!
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!

"That's My King!" Who Dries The Flow Of Blood With The Cries Of His Own Unquenchable Flood!

The woman's blood was dried up by His flood consuming cup!
He dried up her incurable, crippling blood flow by an unconquerable, cleansing flood of His own blood!
He opened up a fountain that cleanses from sin and uncleanliness!
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!
He shed His blood in order to renew His people in knowledge after the image of their Creator!
He saved us by the flood of floods of the blood of bloods!
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!

"That's My King!" Who's The Olympian Of All Olympians!

Olympian:  Majestic in manner; Surpassing all others in scope and effect . . . One who is superior to all others.

Oh boy this will preach . . . .

The scope of His influence on this universe is incomparable!
The far reaching effects of His life, death, resurrection cannot be contained, chained, or fully explained!
He's the One Who's superior to all others including brothers, mothers, and  all anothers!
He's in a class by Himself!
He's stands on a podium made by Himself, upheld by Himself, and all by Himself!
To know Him and to be known by Him is worth more than all the gold, silver, and bronze of 10 billion universes!
His Word is worth more than thousands of pieces of gold and silver!
He's the priceless golden treasure of this universe Who alone can satisfy your soul!

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

He ran the only perfect race that's ever been run in the history of this world!
He ran the fastest race, the smartest race, the longest race, and the best race all at the same time!
His life was full of perfect "10's" in all areas – any time, every time, all the time!
He's the only one Who disciplined His body perfectly with perpetually passionate power to produce the purest personal performance of any person Who has ever crossed the horizon of this world!

He created Michael Phelps; gave him all his gifts, talents, abilities, and work ethic; caused him to be born in an environment where those gifts could all be developed; gave him all the opportunities he was given to succeed; gave him all his wins and medals; and upholds him and everything else in this universe by the Word of His power!
He's Gabby Douglas's Creator, Lord, and Master; He made her hair and it looks great just like it is, and only through His grace, love, and mercy can she flip, cartwheel, and handstand for the glory of God!
He made Usain Bolt's legs; He made Usain Bolt fast; He gives Usain Bolt life and breath and everything; and He deserves all the glory for everything Usain Bolt does!

He's the Dream Team of dream teams, and He's the deepest dream of every human heart whether they know it or not!
There's no God like Him!
He wins everything by just as many points as He pleases!
When you see these athletes perform, may their dedication, talent, power, glory, and beauty always point you to their Creator and Sustainer Who gave them all these gifts and Who is infinitely more powerful, glorious, and beautiful than all of them combined by an infinite distance!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

He's the Underdog of underdogs and the Champion of champions all at the same time!
He won it all through defeat and through defeat He won it all!
He took upon Himself all your loses, failures, defeats, and rejections so that you might never lose, fail, be defeated, or be rejected again!
He took upon Himself your laziness, weakness, lack of dedication, sin, and ugliness so that you might be revived, strengthened, committed, forgiven, and beautiful in God's eyes – covered in the very righteousness of Jesus Christ Himself!
He lost everything that matters most on that cross so that He might win it all back and a whole lot more!
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!

"That's My King!" Who's The Irresistible Lion Tamer And The Universe's Reclaimer!

He's the Seed of the woman Who came to crush the head of the serpent!
His servant Job took the worst tragedies Satan could throw at him and still bowed down and worshiped God!
He's the greater Sampson Who can not only tear lions apart with His bare hands, but He more than conquers them and takes everything they mean for evil and means it for good!
He was there when all the mouths of the lions were shut tight for Daniel in the lion's den, and He's still shutting the mouths of lions today!
He the Binder of the unbindable and the Subduer of the unsubduable!
When He began His ministry on earth, He boldly displayed His eternal worth!
By succeeding where the first Adam failed, over Satan's temptations He prevailed!

He's the tamer of the untamable!
He can tame all the storms outside in mother nature!
And He can tame all the storms inside your heart!
He can tame everything untamable in your life and in this universe by merely speaking a Word!
One little Word of His grace can tame your drug and alcohol abuse!
One little Word of His mercy can tame your sexual misuse!
One little Word of His power can tame your laziness excuse!
One little Word of His Gospel can tame your lovelessness and from all your pride be loosed!
He tamed our greatest enemies – sin, death, Satan, and Hell – by allowing Himself to be devoured by them on that cross so that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life as well so that we might go and tell and save other souls from eternal Hell!

That's my King!

He became naked on that cross so that we might be forever clothed and in our right minds!
He was left all alone and isolated on that cross so that we might enjoy eternal, ecstatic fellowship with all kinds!
He was cut up with stripes, thorns, nails, and a spear so that we might be forever healed!
He was tempted by legions of demons and conquered them all so that we might in everlasting peace be sealed!
He was accused of being a fad, bad, and mad but died and rose so that we could have God as our everlasting Dad!
He cried out into the tombs from that cross:  "My God! My God! Why have You forsaken Me?!" so that we could be forgiven, accepted, adopted, and never forgotten!
He rose up from the grave to give life to all who turn and trust in Him!

That's my King!  Have you put your trust in Him today?!

Through His life, death, and resurrection He's reconciling everything in the universe to Himself!
One day He'll make all things new including you if your faith is true!
If you see that you're like the naked, mad man who cut himself and cried,
And hate your sin, turn from it, and go to God to hide though you might be tried,
Then you'll run to Jesus and beg Him to let you forever abide right by His side!
Because He's irresistible!
He's alluring!
He's magnetic!
He's ravishing!
He's inescapable!
He's compelling!
He's all satisfying!
And if you've truly met Him, trusted Him, and been changed by Him, then you can't help but desire to be with Him and tell the world what great things He's done for You!

That's my King!  That's my King!
