Our Coming King

Posted by undergroundchurch on December 31, 2009


As you enter the New Year, consider our coming King…

He is:

  • King of the Jews (racial);
  • King of Israel (national);
  • King of all the Ages;
  • King of Heaven;
  • King of Glory;
  • King of Kings;
  • ..and Lord of Lords. [Do you know Him? Do you really?]

A prophet before Moses;

A priest after Melchizedek;

A champion like Joshua;

An offering in place of Isaac;

A king from the line of David;

A wise counselor above Solomon;

A beloved/rejected/exalted son like Joseph.

And yet far more…

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 the Omega
  • the Aleph and the Tau
  • the A and the Z;

He is the first fruits of them that slept.

He is the “I AM that I AM” [the Voice of the Burning Bush!]

He is the Captain of the Lord’s Host

He was the conqueror of Jericho

He is enduringly strong;

He is entirely sincere;

He is eternally steadfast;

He is immortally graceful;

He is imperially powerful;

He is impartially merciful;

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;
  • our Performing High Priest,
  • our Personal Prophet,
  • our Reigning King.

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

We are the beneficiaries of a Love Letter:

It was written in blood,

on a wooden cross

erected in Judea

2,000 years ago.

He was crucified on a cross of wood, yet He made the hill on which it stood.

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!

What held Him to that cross? It wasn’t the nails!

(At any time He could have declared,“I’m out of here!”)

It was His love for you and me.

He was born of a woman

so that we could be born of God;

He humbled Himself

so that we could be lifted up;

He became a servant

so that we could be made co-heirs;

He suffered rejection

so that we could become His friends;

He denied Himself

so that we could freely receive all things;

He gave Himself

so that He could bless us in every way.

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!

His Offices are manifold;

His Reign is righteous;

His Promises are sure;

His Goodness is limitless;

His Light is matchless;

His Grace is sufficient;

His Love never changes;

His Mercy is everlasting;

His Word is enough;

His Yoke is easy and

His Burden is light!

He’s indescribable;

He’s incomprehensible;

He’s irresistible;

He’s invincible!

The Heaven of heavens cannot contain Him;

Man cannot explain 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;

Your can’t impeach Him and

he isn’t going to resign!

His name is above every name;

That at the name of Yeshua

Every knee shall bow

Every tongue shall confess

That Jesus Christ is Lord!

His is the kingdom, the power, and the glory… for ever, and ever.

…Amen!

—inspired by Pastor S.D. Lockridge
