OUR KING


My King is the King of the Jews. He is a racial king.
My King is also the King of Israel: He's also a national king.
My King is the King of all the Ages; He's the King of Heaven;
He's the King of Glory; He's the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

(Do you know Him? Don't kid me now: do you really?)

The Heavens declare His glory and the firmament shows His handiwork.
He who is, who was, and who always will be: the First and the Last;
He is the Alpha and Omega;
the Aleph and the Tau; the A and the Z;
the first fruits of them that slept.
He is the ego eimi, the ichyach asher ichyach,
the "I AM that I AM": the voice of the burning bush;
the Captain of the Lord's Host; the Conqueror of Jericho.

By Him were all things made that were made:
without Him was not anything made that was made.
By Him are all things held together!
In Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
the Very God of Very God.

He is our Kinsman-Redeemer
and He is our Avenger of Blood.
He is our City of Refuge.

He is our Performing High Priest,
our Personal Prophet, our Reigning King.

He is enduringly strong; entirely sincere;
eternally steadfast. He is immortally graceful;
imperially powerful; impartially merciful.
He stands alone in Himself:
He's august, pre-eminent, supreme,
unique, unparalleled.

He's the loftiest idea in literature;
He's the highest personality in philosophy;
He's the fundamental doctrine of theology;
He's the supreme problem in "higher criticism"!
He's the miracle of the ages:
the superlative of everything good.

He is God's Son!

There are no means of measuring His limitless love.
He's the only one able to supply all our needs simultaneously!

No barriers can hinder Him
from pouring out His blessing!
"No far seeing telescope can
bring into visibility the coastline
of His shoreless supply."

He
Is available to the tempted and the tried;
Blesses the young;
Cleanses the lepers;
Defends the feeble;
Delivers the captives;
Discharges the debtors;
Forgives the sinners;
Franchises the meek;
Guards the besieged;
Heals the sick;
Provides strength to the weak;
Regards the aged;
Rewards the diligent;
Serves the unfortunate;
Sympathizes and He saves!

He's the
Captain of the Conquerors
Centerpiece of Civilization
Doorway of Deliverance
Governor of Governors
Head of the Heroes
Highway of Holiness
King of Knowledge
Master of the Mighty
Overseer of Overcomers
Pathway of Peace
Roadway of Righteousness
Sinner's Saviour
Wellspring of Wisdom
Prince of Princes
King of Kings
Lord of Lords!

His goodness is limitless;
His grace is sufficient;
His light is matchless;
His love never changes;
His mercy is everlasting;
His offices are manifold;
His promises are sure;
His reign is righteous;
His Word is enough;
His yoke is easy and
His burden is light!

He's indescribable; He's incomprehensible;
He's invincible; He's irresistible!

The Heaven of heavens cannot contain Him;
Man cannot explain Him.

You can't get Him out of your mind;
You can't get Him off of your hands.
You can't out live Him;
and you can't live without Him!

The Pharisees couldn't stand Him;
and learned that they couldn't stop Him.
Pilate couldn't find any fault with Him.
The witnesses couldn't agree against Him.

Herod couldn't kill Him.
Death couldn't handle Him.
The grave couldn't hold Him!

He has always been and always will be:
He had no predecessor and will have no successor.
You can't impeach Him and he isn't going to resign!
His is the kingdom, the power,
and the glory for ever, and ever.

Amen!!
