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

"That's My King!" Who Came From Mary's Virgin Womb And Faced His Father's Wrathful Doom Then Resurrected From the Tomb To Be Our Everlasting Groom!

Why do you live upon the earth? What's your treasure – greatest worth? What fills your heart with sweetest mirth?  Oh may it start with virgin birth! When God the Son came down to earth!  He is life's most precious worth!
Sadducees denied the resurrection; They came with a question for insurrection; But were overwhelmed by Christ's objection; He shut their mouths with truth correction; To His church He gives protection; From false teachers' death infection; On that cross He faced rejection; Even though He was perfection; Took on Him our sin collection; But gave the tomb the great ejection; For He's the life and resurrection! He's worthy of life-long reflection! He alone is our connection; To the God of all complexion; He'll give your life a new direction; Fill your heart with pure affection; You will never face rejection; For He's the God of your election; And He'll bring you to perfection!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Jesus told them they were wrong; Though they've read the Word lifelong; They don't know it – sounding gong; They deny that God is strong; He'll raise the dead and life prolong; To His family you'll belong; And in your heart He'll put a song; Join the everlasting throng; And praise His name with voices strong!
Marriage on earth will face cessation; Then – eternal celebration; The Lamb's our Spouse – our perfect relation; The church is His bride at the consummation; From every tongue and tribe and nation; He'll love and support without accusation; He'll protect and provide with no frustration; He satisfies your deepest aspiration; He's worthy of every and all adoration; Because on that cross He saved from damnation; To bring us the joys of eternal salvation; He's God of the living with no condemnation; Trust in Him now with no reservation; He'll fill you with fullness of joy's elation; And thus we praise the incarnation; The Word made flesh in combination; Let us adore in admiration!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Owns All Things, Bold Truth He Brings, And Caesar Bows To The King of Kings!

Jesus reigns over everything supreme! He's the King Who rules over every regime; He, above all, deserves highest esteem; He shed His own blood – a pure, healing stream; And rose from the grave – our lives to redeem; In His Father's eyes, He's the brightest gleam; By faith in Him you can share this gleam; Forgiven and righteous and all you don't seem; He saves the worst of sinners extreme; Of the greatest story ever told – He's the theme of themes; So bow to Him now as your joy supreme!
The Devil tries our Christ to trap; False teachers flatter with their yap; The question they hope will unwrap; All His success and planning snap; He'll take and all their evil scrap; Their plans He stops and now we rap; His answer causes us to clap; He put this sentence on the map; Our Christ no one will ever trap!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

We give to Caesar what we owe; God gave to him to rule below; Authority did God bestow; On kings and rulers high and low; For through this rule God's blessings grow; Even if man's rule below; God's good commandments out they throw; Against this rule will come God's woe; For He will punish every foe; And soon someday though time seems slow; Justice like waters down will flow; And righteousness o'er all He'll sow; For Christ did die once long ago; Upon Himself He took God's woe; That you deserve who were God's foe; He died to make you clean like snow; Then rose alive – death's sting forgo; Now o'er all death He shouts a "No!" And on your life mercies bestow!
God bought you – now you are His own; His image on yourself is shown; He ripped right out your heart of stone; And makes you more like Christ full grown; You owe Him all you've ever known; All this since Christ was overthrown; He let Caesar Himself to own; And died upon that cross alone; For all our sins He did atone; Then rose to rule upon His throne; So look to Him and bow down prone; And find in Him delights unknown!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Was Single All His Life And Conquered Every Strife Then Gave His Precious Life So We Could Be His Wife!

The pleasures of marriage, Jesus never knew; He lived and died – the single Jew; There are joys in sex and intimacy true; But from a greater joy He drew; His Father's the greatest pleasure He knew; Pleasures forevermore and joys through and through! His delights in the Father flourished and grew; The pleasures of sin away He threw; No lust His heart would ever pursue; For God's beauty itself is the greatest view; His heart was crushed when this Beauty withdrew; For on that cross God's wrath would spew; Forsaken by God He paid our due; He became sin – for me and for you; Though no sin to Him would ever accrue; Then He arose and made all things new! To bring you to God – a bride clean and true; Come to Him now – your desires He'll subdue; You'll cry from your heart:  "All my joy is You!"
Oh Father please come – my need seems dire; Please come help me fight overwhelming desire; Oh God you alone can put out the fire;  Turn my eyes upon You and lift me up higher; To trust and obey all that You require; May I find "Christ is all!" –  my great King and Sire; And delight in Him – our greatest Desire!

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

God's Word says singleness is the best way; And you'll be happier if single you stay; All your attention on God you can lay; He'll fill all your thoughts – to Him you can pray; He wants you alone with Him everyday; A Lover Who's jealous and won't let you stray; He's the fountain of all delight so survey; His glory about beauty on full display; He died to take all your sins away; And lives to give you life His way; So trust in Him and fight to obey; He'll grant you contentment – come what may!
One day you'll be married for eternal duration; This fact is certain – God's declaration; For all who trust in Christ for salvation; Will marry the Lamb in the new creation; His bride you will be from every nation; You'll marry the King – the best combination; Most loving, most kind, your closest relation; The greatest Spouse – beyond all expectation!  If you have Him, fear no deprivation; You'll know all is good at the consummation; Where joys in Him pass all imagination; And grow forever in great adoration; The Husband-King is all compensation; So find in Him life's full celebration!

That's my King!  That's my King!
