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!" Who Suffered Many Things And True Salvation Brings By Rising King of Kings!

The command to silence Jesus gave; Until He's raised up from the grave; For only through His death He'd save; And tread upon death's killing wave; The way to life He'd clear and pave; And all our condemnation waive; For though to sin we were a slave; We'd sin and lust and misbehave; Christ died and rose so God forgave; His Spirit makes us strong and brave; And leads us holy to behave; Since we're forevermore God's slave!
The three obey – their mouths they close; But Christ's good words a problem pose; Until the Son from the dead rose; How could Christ die? – this no one knows; Yet this is how God's story goes – a Suff'ring Servant Isaiah shows; He takes God's wrath – He's crushed with blows; And through His death evil's deposed; To save us from death's wicked lows; For us the Christ this suffering chose; And let Himself be stripped of clothes;  Now all our sin He does expose; By faith in Him we find repose; For He the devil will oppose; And win the victory for all those; Who trust the Son for He arose!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Scribes say Elijah must come first; But Christ is here – was this reversed?  No – Elijah's come as it was versed; And Christ must die – receive the worst; For on that tree He would be cursed; And in God's wrath be all immersed; Then rise alive and death's grip burst; Earth's dreaded curse would be reversed; All broken hearts He'd have them nursed;  And for this Christ alone we thirst!
To read the Bible as we should; We all must read as Jesus would; For how He reads is always good; Not wrong and blind under a hood; Interpreting as literal wood; So read like Christ just as you should; Then He won't be misunderstood!
The cross comes first and then the crown; For all glory our King's cast down; He Who is the greatest Noun – the greatest of all those around; He died to win a wedding gown; So down on us our God won't frown; For we've been lost but now we're found; Our God raised Jesus from the ground; And now His grace towards us abounds; His love forever will astound!

That's my King!  That's my King!
