That’s My King!
The Bible says, my King is a seven way King. He is the King of the Jews, that’s a racial King.
He is the King of Israel, that is a national King.
He is the King of righteousness, He is the King of ages, He is the King of the heavens, He is the King of glory, He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
That’s my King!
Well I wonder, do you know Him?
David says the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth His handiwork.
My King is a sovereign King, no means of measure can define His limitlessness. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply. No barrier can hinder Him from pouring out His blessings.
He is enduringly strong,
He is entirely sincere,
He is eternally steadfast,
He is immortally graceful.
He is imperially powerful.
He is impartially merciful.
Do you know Him?
He is the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizon of this world!
He is God’s son,
He is the sinners Savior,
He is the centerpiece of civilization,
He stands in the solitude of Himself,
He is awesome and unique,
He is unparalleled,
He is unprecedented,
He is the loftiest idea in literature,
He is the highest personality in philosophy,
He is the supreme problem in higher criticism,
He is the fundamental doctrine of true theology,
He is the corner of necessity for spiritual religion,
He is the miracle of the age, yes He is!! He is the superlative of everything good that Jews and Gentiles call Him, He is the only one qualified to be an all sufficient Savior.
Therefore, I wonder do you know Him today?
He supplies strength for the weak,
He is available for the tempted and tired,
He sympathizes and saves,
He strengthens and sustains,
He guards and He guides,
He heals the sick, He cleanses the lepers,
He forgives sinners,
He discharges debtors,
He delivers the captives,
He defends the feeble,
He blesses the young,
He saves the unfortunate,
He regards the aged,
He rewards the diligent and beautifies the meek.
Here again, I wonder, do you know Him?
Well, my King, He is the key to knowledge.
He is the wellspring of wisdom,
He is the doorway of deliverance,
He is the pathway of peace,
He is the roadway of righteousness,
He is the highway of holiness,
He is the gateway of glory.
Do you know Him?
Well….his office is manifold,
His promise is sure,
His life is matchless,
His goodness is limitless,
His mercy is everlasting,
His love never changes,
His Word is enough,
His grace is sufficient,
His rage is righteous, and His yoke is easy, and His burden is light.
Oh, how I wish I could describe Him to you!!!
He is indescribable, yes He is indescribable!!
He is incomprehensible,
He is invincible,
He is irresistible.
Well you can’t get Him out of your mind, You can’t get Him out of your head, you can’t outlive Him, and you can’t live without Him!!
The Pharisees couldn’t find any fault in Him, the witnesses couldn’t get their testimonies to agree, Herod couldn’t kill Him, death couldn’t handle Him and the grave couldn’t hold Him!!
That’s my KING!
He left as a lamb and is coming back as a lion!!
He left the world,
to oversee His Kingdom,
and rule and reign with Him at His second coming!!
That’s my King Yeshua.
Yes, that’s my King!!
For Thine is the Kingdom and the power forever, and ever, and ever, and how long is that?
Forever, and ever, and ever.
And when you get through with all the forever’s, then Amen!! Praise God, Amen!!
