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 Name To All Shall Be Proclaimed And We Must Never Be Ashamed Since For Our Sins Our King Was Blamed So Now For Him We Are Reclaimed!

Jesus is the Temple of all temples!
He's the wonderful Stone that was rejected so that we might be made living stones as He builds His Church!
He's the greatest of all buildings!
His beauty is breathtaking!
His appearance is astonishingly appealing all the time!
His structure is indestructible!
You can bring the two towers in New York city down, but You can ever bring Him down!
Yet it was through bringing Him down on that cross that He rose to never go down again!
His foundation is unshakable!
You can't burn Him up, and You can't smoke Him out!
Every stone He has will be left upon the others, and He will not be thrown down!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

He's the sign of the ages!
He's the One Who's accomplished the greatest accomplishments of anyone Who has walked on the face of this earth!
And He walked on water too!
He accomplished everything that had to be done to save us from our sins and the wrath of His Father!
He cried "It is finished!" – and it is finished!
And He's the only One Who finished it, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved, can be saved, will be saved, and shall be saved!
He never lead anyone astray but only lead us all in the right direction, for He is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him!
He came with the only name that can save, for He is the great I AM, and everyone Who calls on the name of the LORD Jesus Christ shall be saved!

That's my King!

He came to win the war of all wars – the war to end all wars – and He won by allowing Himself to be conquered!
In His defeat is His and our victory!
In His slaughter is our redemption!
In His death is His and our resurrection!
The end of all war is coming someday, for He has secured the peace of all nations with His precious blood!
He said there would be earthquakes, but there was an earthquake when He died, and His death secured the still calm of the earth someday forever!
He said there would be famines, but on that cross the Son of God was dry and thirsty so that we His people might never thirst again but have rivers of living waters flow out of our hearts!
He was delivered over to the councils!
He was beaten, bruised, and afflicted!
He stood before governors and kings and was condemned for your sake in order to bear witness to the glorious value of His Father's glory and to save His people from their sins!

That's my King!

The Gospel of His life, death, and resurrection is and will be proclaimed to all nations because He loves all nations and has ransomed people from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation to be one family in Him!
He's the famous One!
He's God over all the earth!
He's the Desire of the nations!
He's King of kings and LORD of lords!
He had the Holy Spirit without measure!
He only and always spoke what was right, true, loving, and the very Words of God!
One of His brother disciples did betray Him over to death!
And it pleased His Father to crush Him on that cross so that by His strips we are healed!
He was hated by all as no one has ever been hated in the history of the world – for your sake so that you would never be hated again by the only One Who matters most – the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
And because He was hated, you will be loved with the unknowable love of the infinite God forever!
It's this love that will keep you enduring to the end so that you will most certainly be saved!
For He endured to the end to purchase the very faith and strength that you need to endure to the end also!

That's my King!  That's my King!

He's the glory of the LORD Who fills the temple of the LORD Who is the Son of the LORD Who is the LORD Himself!
On that cross He was counted as the rebellious house and treated as a foreigner and uncircumcised outcast so that you rebellious sinners could be made citizens of heaven, children of God, and the real circumcision who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh!
