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 Begged His Father To Take The Cross Away Because With Perfect Fear He'd Pray With Passion Every Sin He'd Slay And Preeminently To God He'd Say You're My Greatest Joy Please Stay Your Will Be Done I Will Obey!

When devils roar and Christ is sad; And all His future's dark and bad; He faced His Father's wrath so mad; To Him all sins our God would add; He'd lose the pleasure of His Dad; Alone, forsaken – no more glad; But on that cross He conquered bad; And took away His Father's mad; Rose up alive in light He's clad; And now to us His goodness add; All sins forgiven we are glad; Someday all joy and no more sad!
With soul in sorrow He could die; He'd pray and sweat and loudly cry; "Oh Father let this cup pass by! For You can do all things on high! Your will be done – I will comply!" This prayer is hard – we can't deny; Was Jesus' love now spent and dry? From Him did faith and boldness fly? Is our King weak as death drew nigh? A million "No's!" we must reply! Our King is King of kings on high! He's perfect man in every eye; His prayer shows us a perfect cry; Perfect fear – from wrath He'd fly; Perfect hate – toward sin defy; Perfect joy in God nearby; The perfect Man must pray this cry! But on His God He would rely; And give His life and finally die; Then rise to ascend in the sky; And our salvation full apply!

That's my King!  Do you know Him!?

Fear not mere men who bodies kill; And leave the souls untouched and still; But fear the God Who at His will; Casts souls and bodies with great zeal; Straight into hell – justice fulfill; Jesus obeyed with perfect skill; And feared His God Whose wrath would spill; All over Him on Calvary's hill; Millions of hells would be His pill; The darkest chill and greatest ill; Would be His plight – it was God's will; When perfect Man this fear did feel; His only prayer – He must appeal; His fear is perfectly ideal; Fear only God Who souls can kill!
Christ hated sin with perfect hate; He lived the righteous, sinless state; But knew He soon would bear the weight; Of all our sinful wicked freight; As sin our God would then equate; The perfect Savior Who's the Great; This cannot be for it's innate; That more than all, sin, Christ would hate!  And so He prayed:  "Father create!  Another way – this cross negate!" But as He cried and lay prostrate; On His Father's will He'd wait!
The Father is Jesus' greatest delight; The joy they have is out of sight; So when Christ sees His terrible plight; The Father turns His back from sight; And says: "My only Son I'll smite!" He cannot take this darkest night; But for His Father's presence fight! With every fiber of His might; "Oh Father take the cross from sight!"  But so we could be saved tonight; Our Savior died and did what's right; And rose again – our sovereign Knight; To be our joy and delight!

That's my King!  That's my King!
