Summary: Jesus Christ is my King. Do you know Him? He is more than I can describe, and yet he cares so much for me, more than I can understand.
Do You Know My King?

We are living in a world gone mad. Who can deny that the word of God in Isaiah 5:20 is coming to pass before our very eyes? "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" In these last days it sometimes seems that evil is prevailing. It seems that the voice of the true church has been nearly silenced, as men will accept anything before they will hear the truth. Even those who are in the church want to hear only that part of the Word of God that will fit into their chosen way of life.
As we draw ever nearer to the second coming of Christ, I sometimes wonder if many will be left who will hear Him call their name to come away with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. I know that I talk about this often, but I can’t help it because I believe that Jesus is coming much sooner than many people believe. I’m really amazed that He hasn’t come already.
My calling, to preach the gospel, to pastor this church, and to lead as many people to Christ as I can, will not allow me to be silent. I am compelled to shout it from the pulpit, from the street corner, to whoever will hear – JESUS IS COMING SOON; WATCH AND WAIT; PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THAT FINAL JOURNEY TO SEE MY KING. I’m watching and waiting anxiously for His coming. I just have to see my King!
Do you know my King? Do you know Jesus the way that I know Him? Let me tell about my King! Let me use the words of another great preacher and try to describe My King to you.
He is the King of the Jews – He is the King of Israel – He is the King of Righteousness – He is the King of the Ages – He is the King of Heaven – He is the King of Glory – He is the King of King and the Lord of Lords – DO YOU KNOW HIM?
He is a Sovereign King – His limitless love cannot be measured – He is enduringly strong – He is entirely sincere – He is eternally steadfast – He is imperially powerful – He is impartially merciful – and He is Immortally graceful – DO YOU KNOW HIM?
He is the greatest King to ever cross the horizon of this world – He is God’s Son – He is the sinner’s Savior – He is the centerpiece of civilization – He is unparalleled – He is unprecedented – He is the loftiest idea in literature – He is the highest personality in philosophy – and He is the only one qualified to be the All-sufficient Savior – I WONDER DO YOU REALLY KNOW HIM?
He supplies strength to the weak – He’s available for the tempted and tried – He strengthens and sustains – He guards and He guides – He discharges the debtors – He delivers the captives – He heals the sick – He cleansed the lepers – He blesses the young – and He regards the aged. He defends the feeble and He rewards the diligent – DO YOU KNOW HIM?
He is the Key to knowledge – He is the wellspring of wisdom – He is the doorway of deliverance – He is the Pathway of Peace – He is the Roadway of Righteousness – He is the Highway of Holiness – and He is the Gateway to Glory – DO YOU KNOW HIM?
His goodness is limitless – His grace is sufficient – His Yoke is easy – and His burden is light. I WISH I COULD REALLY DESCRIBE HIM!
He is indescribable – He is incomprehensible – He is invincible – He is irresistible – You can’t get Him off of your mind – And 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 that they couldn’t stop Him – Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him – and Herod couldn’t kill Him – Death couldn’t handle Him – And the grave couldn’t hold him.
THAT’S MY KING – DO YOU KNOW HIM?
I am striving to know Him better. I want to know Him more. I want to serve Him more. I’m a child of My King – I am an adopted Son of God, Born Again by the Blood of MY KING!
My King has promised me that evil will never prevail against His church, or His people.
