That’s my King. By S. M. Lockridge

My King was born King. The Bible says
He’s a Seven Way King. He’s the King
of the Jews – that’s an Ethnic King.
He’s the King of Israel – that’s a
National King. 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.
Well, I wonder if you know Him. Do
you know Him? Don’t try to mislead
me. Do you know my King? David said
the Heavens declare the glory of God,
and the firmament shows His
handiwork. My King is the only one of
whom there are no means of measure
that can define His limitless love. No
far seeing telescope can bring into
visibility the coastline of the shore of
His supplies. No barriers can hinder
Him from pouring out His blessing.
He’s enduringly strong. He’s entirely
sincere. He’s eternally steadfast. He’s
immortally graceful. He’s imperially
powerful. He’s impartially merciful.
That’s my King. He’s God’s Son. He’s
the sinner’s saviour. He’s the
centerpiece of civilization. He stands
alone in Himself. He’s honest. He’s
unique. He’s unparalleled. He’s
unprecedented. He’s supreme. He’s
pre-eminent. He’s the grandest idea in
literature. He’s the highest
personality in philosophy. He’s the
supreme problem in higher criticism.
He’s the fundamental doctrine of
historic theology. He’s the carnal
necessity of spiritual religion. That’s
my King.
He’s the miracle of the age. He’s the
superlative of everything good that
you choose to call Him. He’s the only
one able to supply all our needs
simultaneously. He supplies strength
for the weak. He’s available for the
tempted and the tried. He
sympathizes and He saves. He’s the
Almighty God who guides and keeps
all his people. He heals the sick. He
cleanses the lepers. He forgives
sinners. He discharged debtors. He
delivers the captives. He defends the
feeble. He blesses the young. He
serves the unfortunate. He regards
the aged. He rewards the diligent and
He beautifies the meek. That’s my
Do you know Him? Well, my King is a
King of knowledge. He’s the wellspring
of wisdom. He’s the doorway of
deliverance. He’s the pathway of
peace. He’s the roadway of
righteousness. He’s the highway of
holiness. He’s the gateway of glory.
He’s the master of the mighty. He’s
the captain of the conquerors. He’s
the head of the heroes. He’s the
leader of the legislatures. He’s the
overseer of the overcomers. He’s the
governor of governors. He’s the prince
of princes. He’s the King of kings and
He’s the Lord of lords. That’s my King.
His office is manifold. His promise is
sure. His light 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. That’s my
King. He’s incomprehensible, He’s
invincible, and He is irresistible.
I’m coming to tell you this, that the
heavens of heavens can’t contain Him,
let alone some 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. 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
about Him. Herod couldn’t kill Him.
Death couldn’t handle Him and the
grave couldn’t hold Him. That’s my
He always has been and He always will
be. I’m talking about the fact that He
had no predecessor and He’ll have no
successor. There’s nobody before Him
and there’ll be nobody after Him. You
can’t impeach Him and He’s not going
to resign. That’s my King! That’s my
Thine is the kingdom and the power
and the glory. Well, all the power
belongs to my King. We’re around here
talking about black power and white
power and green power, but in the
end all that matters is God’s power.
Thine is the power. Yeah. And the
glory. We try to get prestige and honor
and glory for ourselves, but the glory
is all His. Yes. Thine is the Kingdom
and the power and glory, forever and
ever and ever and ever. How long is
that? Forever and ever and ever and
ever. . . And when you get through
with all of the ever’s, then . . .Amen!
