HE IS.......

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
Lord of lords

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 counsellor above Solomon
A beloved/rejected/exalted Son like Joseph

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 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 conquerer of Jericho
He is enduringly strong, entirely sincere, eternally steadfast
He is immortally graceful, imperially powerful, impartially merciful

In Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily
The very God of Very God
He is our Kinsman-Redeemer
He is our Avenger of Blood,
Our City of Refuge
Our performing High Priest
Our personal Prophet
Our reigning King

He is the loftiest idea in literature
The highest Personality in Philosophy
The fundamental doctrine in theology
The supreme problem in higher criticism
He is the miracle of all the ages
The superlative of everything good

We are the beneficiaries of a love letter
Written in blood
On a wooden cross
Erected in Judaea 2000 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

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's available to the tempted and tried
He blesses the young
He cleanses the lepers
He defends the people
He delivers the captives
He discharges the debtors
He forgives the sinners
He franchises the meek
He guards the besieged
He heals the sick
He provides strength to the weak
He regards the aged
He rewards the diligent
He serves the unfortunate
He sympathizes and He saves

His offices are manifold
His reign is righteous
His promises are sure
His goodness is limitless
His light is matchless
(it would outshine a match)
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 indescribeable, incomprehensible, 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 witness 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
He always will be
He had no predecessor
He'll have no successor
You 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 forever and ever
