My King

My King is the only one qualified to be king.

My King has always been king.

My King was born king.

In fact the Bible says He’s a 7 way king:

He’s the King of the Jews.

He’s the King of Israel.

He’s the King of righteousness.

He’s the King of the ages.

He’s the King of Heaven.

He’s the King of glory.

He’s the King of kings and He is the Lord of lords.

Now that’s my King!

My King always has been King and always will be King! David said:

“the Heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament show His handiwork!” That’s my King! No means of measure can define His limitless love. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shore of supplies. No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing. Nobody can keep Him from saving me. He knows me! No barrier can hinder Him from pouring out His blessings!

He’s enduringly strong.

He’s entirely sincere.

He’s eternally steadfast.

He’s immortally graceful.

He’s imperially powerful.

He’s impartially merciful.

He’s the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizon of this world!

He’s God’s Son.

That’s my King! Is He yours?

What I like about Him?

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 reign is righteous.

His yoke is easy and

His burden is light!

I wish I could describe Him to you, but...

He’s indescribable.

He’s incomprehensible.

He’s invincible.

He’s irresistible.

The heaven of heavens cannot contain Him, let alone a man explain Him.

You can’t get Him out of your mind.

You can’t get Him off of your hands.

You can’t outlive Him and

you can’t live without Him.

That’s my King!

The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him, but they found out they couldn’t stop Him.

Pilate 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!

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine;

Oh, what a foretaste of glory devine!

Heir of salvation, purchase of God

Born of His Spirit, washed in His Blood!

This is my story, this is my song,

praising my Savior, all the day long!

That’s my King!. He always has been and He always will be.

He had no predecessor and

He’ll have no successor.

There was nobody before Him and

there’ll be nobody after Him.

You can’t impeach Him and

He’s not going to resign.

You can trust Him!

That’s my King! Praise the Lord. That’s my King!

Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever and ever.

Here's the hymn 'Blessed assurance' that was quoted above.

I made a special arrangement on this theme, which can be found here on my website or here on YouTube.
