Jesus As King
My king was born king. The Bible says He is the seven-way king. He is the king of the Jews. Thats a racial king. He is king of Israel. Thats a national king. Hes a king of righteousness. Hes a king of the ages. Hes the king of heaven. He is the king of glory. Hes the King of kings and Lord of lords. Now thats my king.
Well, I wonder if you know Him. Do you know Him? Dont try to mislead me. Do you know my king? David said, “The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth His handiwork.” No far-seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply. No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing.
Hes enduringly strong, Hes entirely sincere, Hes eternally steadfast. Hes immortally graceful. Hes imperially powerful. Hes impartially merciful. Thats my king. Hes Gods Son. Hes a sinners savior. Hes the centerpiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. Hes august. Hes unique. Hes unparalleled. Hes unprecedented. Hes supreme. Hes preeminent. Hes the loftiest idea in literature. Hes the highest idea in philosophy. Hes the fundamental truth in theology. Hes the cardinal necessity of spiritual religion. Thats my king.
Hes the miracle of the age. Hes the only one able to supply all of our needs simultaneously. He supplies strength for the weak. Hes available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He saves. He guards and He guides. He heals the sick, He cleans the lepers. He forgives sinners, He discharges debtors, He delivers captives, He defends the feeble, He blesses the young, He serves the unfortunate, He regards the aged, He rewards the diligent, He beautifies the meek. Do you know Him'
Well, my king is the king of knowledge, Hes the well-spring of wisdom, Hes the doorway of deliverance, Hes the pathway of peace, Hes the roadway of righteousness, Hes the highway of holiness Hes the gateway of glory, Hes the master of the mighty, Hes the captain of the conquerors, Hes the head of the heroes, Hes the leader of the legislators, Hes the overseer of the overcomers, Hes the governor of governors, Hes the prince of princes, Hes the king of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Thats my king. Yeah! Thats my king.
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 reign is righteous. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Well. I wish I could describe Him to you. But Hes indescribable. Hes indescribable. Yes. Hes incomprehensible. Hes invincible, Hes irresistible. Im trying to tell you, the Heavens cannot contain Him, let alone a man explain Him. You cant get Him out of your mind. You cant get Him off of your hands. You cant outlive Him, and you cant live without Him. Well. The Pharisees couldnt stand Him, but they found out they couldnt stop Him. Pilate couldnt find any fault in Him. The witnesses [at his trial] couldnt get their testimonies to agree. Herod couldnt kill Him. Death couldnt handle Him and the grave couldnt hold Him. Thats my king. Yeah!
He always has been, and He always will be. Im talking about He [who] had no predecessor and He [who] has no successor. There was nobody before Him and there will be nobody after Him. You cant impeach Him, and Hes not going to resign. Praise the Lord! Thats my king. Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. Well. All the power belongs to my king. We around here talk about black power and white power and green power, but its Gods power. Thine is the power. Yeah! And the glory. We try to get prestige and honor and glory to ourselves, but the glory is all His. Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever, and ever, and ever, and ever. How long is that? And ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and when you get through with all of the forevers, then “Amen.”
