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 Was Utterly Forsaken In Darkest Cries His Heart Was Shaken The Curtain Rent Was Overtaken He's God's Son There's No Mistakin' From The Grave He Would Awaken So That We Won't Be Forsaken!

Darkness covered all the land
And judgment came just as God planned
For His justice would demand
A sacrifice for sin at hand
In the darkness He's been banned
From His Father's presence grand
We see how bad sin is firsthand
And God's holy heart's demand
He crushed His Son with His own hand
This love we cannot understand
It's past our knowing it's so grand
And through our lives it will expand
For He rose to death withstand
Empowered us – His Spirit fanned
To go and teach all He'd command
And make His children like the sand
As we take Him our joy grand!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?

On that cross He took our place
Was made our sin so low and base
Was mocked and spit on in the face
So we could have amazing grace
The curtain torn like flimsy lace
So to His arms we now can race
To enter in His holy space
Regardless of our sinful case
Our God in Christ will us embrace
And bless us with His shining face
Forgive our sins without a trace
With good and mercy He will chase
For all our lives He'll give more grace
Since His Son He did deface, debase, disgrace, and efface
But raised Him up – the graved He'd ace
The Son of God – He's full of grace
And saves from every tribe and race
So come by faith and Him embrace!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Perfect Image Of God Bearer And Never Made An Error Yet Satisfied God's Terror And Died As The Sin Bearer Then Rose To Be The Glory Sharer And Bring All Nations Together To Make Them One As His Righteousness Wearer – There's Truly No One Fairer!

The racism in America we've had
From the beginning has been bad
Native Americans pushed out mad
Slavery leaving families sad
Segregation to this add
What wicked hearts vile men have had
But there's a way to change this bad
To take the mad and make them glad
And to the sad great joy add
If Christ is all we hope we had
Dressed in His righteousness we're clad
Then all the bad and mad and sad
He'll take away and make us glad!

That's my King!

In God's image we've been made
The crown of all His work displayed
In every color, type, and shade
For His glory we've been made
And so we love and don't degrade
His image that we see portrayed
But we've all sinned His Word evade
And in His image sin pervade
But Jesus came to give us aid
He died and for our sins He paid
In the grave He dead was laid
But rose so death and hell were slayed
And now we're in His image made
That we'd be one just like He prayed!

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

God made from one man every nation
Chinese, Korean, American, Jamaican, and Haitian
He made us look different in all creation
He delights in all our culture and color manifestation
We're made in His image for glorification
To spread His fame to every nation
And take dominion over all creation
"Christ is all!" is our foundation
To do away with racial segregation and frustration
And all the sin done on the plantation
Jesus died as our propitiation
Then rose for our justification
To give us salvation
And make us ONE in blood relation
The blood of Christ is our common celebration
And now we're family without segregation
With Christ as our holy fixation
As we turn from all racial degradation
And love like family without separation
Since Christ is all our preoccupation
And in us all as our life animation
We turn from every hateful temptation
And live for Him – our great contemplation!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Taught Us How To Pray But First He Led And Showed The Way Then Told Us What To Ask And Say So We Would Never Go Astray But Seek To Obey And Put His Glory On Display So Let's Bow Down To Praise And Pray!

Jesus prayed and took the lead
To show us how to beg and plead
To ask our Father without greed
For daily bread and every need
But in this prayer He'd plant the seed
To show the world its greatest need
It's Him – His holy name indeed
Our Father is our all we read
Hallowed be His name agreed
May all His will be done succeed
His Kingdom come as it's decreed
Please come Lord Jesus with all speed!
For You did die and for us bleed
Then rose so in Your name we'd plead
And all Your Words obey and heed
So lead from every evil deed
Let no temptation life impede
But make our joy in You exceed
Since I'm Your child it's guaranteed!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Our Father knows what's always best
He'll give you what will make you blessed
Even though right now you're stressed and depressed
Since He knows all – He's never guessed
And loves with deepest love confessed
He only, always gives what's best
So trust your Father's hand and rest
He's never oppressed
Won't leave you depressed
But shows His greatest love expressed
When with His Son your left possessed
Since He passed the test
Fulfilled His quest with zest when He died and rose impressed
To cast your sins as far as East is from West
And leave you with His glory obsessed
Then you'll know your loved and blessed by the best in the Holy One Who grants your request!

That's my King!  That's my King!

Jesus Is Lord! By S. M. Lockridge

The title Lord is a mark of respect and is implied pledge of obedience.
Once Simon Peter stood before a hostile crowd and said: "God hath made that same Jesus Whom ye have crucified both Lord and Christ."

Christ represents the thing which God hath done to redeem us.
Lord represents that we ought to do because we are redeemed.

We ought to call Him Master and be His obedient servants!
We ought to call Him Owner because He possesses absolutely our lives!
In Him we live and move and have our being!
We ought to call Him Father and be obedient sons and daughters!
He is our only hope!
He is our only help!
God is our refuge and our strength . . .

Jesus is Lord!

He came down the stairway of heaven:
Born in Bethlehem!
Brought up in Nazareth!
Baptized in Jordan!
Tempted in the wilderness!
Performed miracles by the roadside!
Healed multitudes without medicine and made no charges for His services!
He conquered everything that came up against Him!
He even went up on Calvary and died there and then went down in the grave!
And there cleaned out the grave and made it a pleasant place to wait for the resurrection!
And then on scheduled time by the might of His own power He got up with every form of power in the orbit of His omnipotence!
Men have been trying to wrestle His power from Him all these years!
Then, then they are trying to wait; they think that maybe one time His power will fail!
Men have tried to destroy Him!
But don't you know you can't destroy Him!
What you gonna use for power – all power belongs to Him!

Well, if you try to destroy Him by fire, He'll refuse to burn!
If you try to destroy Him by water, He'll walk on the water!
If you try to destroy Him by a strong wind, the tempest will lick His hand and lay down at His feet!
If you try to destroy Him with the Law, you'll find no fault in Him!
If you try to destroy Him with the seal of an empire, He'll break it!
If you try to destroy Him by putting Him in the grave, He'll rise!
If you try to destroy Him by rejection or ignoring Him, before you know it you'll hear a still, small voice saying behold I stand at the door and knock!
If a man open the door I'll come in and sup with Him!

He's Lord!

Yes He is!  He's Lord!

He's the Pearl from Paradise!
He's the Gem from the Glory Land!
He's the true fairest of the Jewel!
He's time's choicest Theme!
He's life's strongest Cord!
He's light's clearest Ray!
He's purity's whitest Peak!
He's glory's stateliest Summit!

He's Lord!

His name stands as a synonym for free healing, friendly help, and full salvation!
He blessed!
His blessed name is like honey to the taste!
It's like harmony to the ear!
It's like help to the soul!
It's like hope to the heart!

I'm trying to tell you – He's Lord!  Yes He is!

He is higher than the heaven of heavens!
And He's holier than the Holy of Holies!

He's Lord!

In His birth is our significance!
In His life is our example!
In His cross is our redemption!
In His resurrection is our hope!

He's Lord!

At His birth men came from the East!
At His death men came from the West!
And the East and the West met in Him!

He's Lord!  Yes He is!  Hallelujah!  He's Lord!

And the Lord God omnipotent reigneth!

And He, yes He will!  He's gonna reign, and you don't have to worry!
There will come a time when every knee is gonna bow!
Not only at the name but to the name!
And every knee is gonna bow in the name!
What!  Every knee is gonna bow and every tongue is gonna confess!
I confess that He's my Lord!
I love to call Him my Lord!
The Lord is love!
The Lord is my light and my salvation!
The Lord is the strength of my life!
The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want!
I shall not want for rest, for He maketh me to lie down in green pastures!
I shall not want for refreshment, for He leadeth me beside still waters!
I shall not want for forgiveness, for He restoreth my soul!
I shall not want for companionship, for yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for Thou art with me!
I shall not want for comfort, for Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me!
I shall not want for sustenance, for Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies!
I shall not want for joy, for Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over!
I shall not want for anything in this life, for goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life!
I shall not want for anything in the life to come, for I'll dwell in the house of the LORD forever!

The LORD is my Shepherd I shall not want!
The LORD is my light and my salvation!

Is He yours?!

You can crown Him King in your own heart right now!

You can crown Him Lord of all in your heart right now!

Jesus Christ is Lord!

"That's My King!" The Warrior Word Salvation Brings When Wisdom's Stirred So Now We Worship Undeterred And Good Works Do Through Grace Conferred!

The Bible is God's Word breathed out
Each word is perfect and devout
On every page find Christ the route
To grace and love with joyous shout
The Christ is what it's all about
He's more than all your greatest doubt
With Him all things you can do without
He's the stoutest of the stout
And owns all the greatest clout
So stop your selfish sadness pout
And end your Bible-reading drought
Then seek to find the Christ throughout
New wings of faith will grow and sprout
He'll crush your sinful, sluggish doubt
Please trust and cling to Christ all out
His glory's what it's all about!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

The Word makes us wise for salvation
And saves us from damnation
Through the grand propitiation
Of our greatest Preoccupation
Who's the God-Man Incarnation
He died and rose for our justification
And saves sinners from every nation
Who will worship in adoration
Die to sin and flee temptation
Fight false teaching by negation and without negotiation
And do good works with great elation
To all peoples from every relation
Because we're all a new creation
With one holy, bold fixation
The Son of the God-breathed narration
Our joy's great summation
So live and die for Him in humble jubilation!

That's my King!  That's my King!
