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!" Whose Years Have No End Though In Death He'd Condescend To Show A Love You Can't Comprehend!

Hebrews 1:12:  But You are the same, and Your years will have no end.

2018 has come and ends
But from eternity past His life extends
And unlike your resolution that toward failure tends
He always accomplishes everything He intends
On Him your life and hope depends
On that cross He became what offends
So that sinners to God through Christ commends
And all their evil He suspends
For He rose up to make Divine amends
Against all your enemies He defends
And for your faith always contends
As your only Friend of friends
Whose love and beauty all things transcends!

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

He's the same yesterday, today, and forever
He fulfills with perfection every endeavor
If you believe in Him, He'll save whosoever
For on that cross His Father did sever
But He rose from the tomb to die again never
In the new year may He be your greatest treasure!

That's my King!

Crown Him the LORD of all your years
He owns your past and future fears
He'll take away your lonely tears
Turn them into praising cheers
And make sure sadness disappears
He reigns o'er all your earthly spheres
And every sin He paid and clears
His tender, loving, attentive ears
Your cries for mercy always hears
He cares much more than all your peers
We hope and pray His coming nears
When He returns our joy appears
As we crown Him the LORD of years!

That's my King! I wonder if you know Him in this new year?!

All your times are in His gracious, sovereign hand
Each event at His perfectly timed command
Even when you don't fully understand
Nothing He does is done unplanned
We know His plans for you are grand
He's told us in His Book firsthand
"All things for good!" His Word will stand
His glory through your life expand
All your enemies He'll withstand
And hold you in His loving hand!

That's my King!

May delight in Him be your resolution
He's worthy for us to endure persecution
He's the only true solution
To all earth's sin pollution
Not the constitution
Or other government revolution
For on that cross He embraced execution
And took our sinful, godless prostitution
By enduring God's wrath by substitution
Where He took God's angry retribution
In order to make full restitution
To save us from all prosecution
He rose up from death and dissolution
To establish His Bride – the Church institution!

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

He's the center of all joy and celebration
So stay up late and praise the Incarnation
Of His worship there shall be no cessation
For He's the Lamb Who was slain to save from damnation
And grant us such a great salvation
Winning for Himself everlasting admiration!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" In Isaiah 9:6!

For Unto Us A Child Is Born
The Son Who Is Salvation's Horn
He's Mighty God Whom We Would Mourn
For He'd Be Killed His Body Torn
The Prince Of Peace Sinners Would Scorn
Yet Then He Rose Crushed Every Thorn
Now He's Our Joy As God Has Sworn
The Everlasting LORD Was Born!

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