What Kind of King?

I don’t know who you are,
I don’t know what you’ve done
that has upset
your own people so much.

I am trying to understand
who
and what you are Jesus.

Are you a king,
the King of the Jews?
Or are you deluded,
a fool?

If people got who I am,
truly understood,
they would stop this happening.

But they still don’t understand
the king I am,
what it means,
for me
and for them.
They cannot grasp
the kingdom
I am showing them,
how it works
and the way to be a part of it.

I am the way,
the truth
and life
– if only
you can grasp it.

You,
like everyone else
must decide if I am King,
if I reign for you
and what you will do about it.

Sing We The King

John 18:33-37 (CEV)

33 Pilate then went back inside. He called Jesus over and asked, “Are you the king of the Jews?”

34 Jesus answered, “Are you asking this on your own or did someone tell you about me?”

35 “You know I’m not a Jew!” Pilate said. “Your own people and the chief priests brought you to me. What have you done?”

36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom doesn’t belong to this world. If it did, my followers would have fought to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. No, my kingdom doesn’t belong to this world.”

37 “So you are a king,” Pilate replied.

“You are saying that I am a king,” Jesus told him. “I was born into this world to tell about the truth. And everyone who belongs to the truth knows my voice.”

The Lord is King – Psalm 93

You are King,
Mighty,
majestic,
glorious.

You are the creator,
the holder of the world.

Holy,
powerful,
sure,
eternal.

I hold to you
for ever more.

Psalm 93 (CEV)

The Lord Is King

93 Our Lord, you are King!
    Majesty and power
    are your royal robes.
You put the world in place,
    and it will never be moved.
    You have always ruled,
    and you are eternal.

The ocean is roaring, Lord!
    The sea is pounding hard.
Its mighty waves are majestic,
    but you are more majestic,
    and you rule over all.
Your decisions are firm,
    and your temple will always
    be beautiful and holy.

A Glimpse of the King

Christ the King, Lisbon
Christ the King, Lisbon

The King is coming,
all is in place.
God takes his seat,
the holy,
mighty,
fiery God;
ready.

We wait
to see
what he will do?
What will happen?
What will become of the world?
Now we will see.

And then we do see,
the Son of Man,
God
in humanity,
crowned as God,
coming.

The king is coming
Am I ready?

The King is Coming

Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14 (CEV)

Judgment

Daniel wrote:

Thrones were set up
    while I was watching,
and the Eternal God
    took his place.
His clothing and his hair
    were white as snow.
His throne was a blazing fire
    with fiery wheels,
10 and flames were dashing out
    from all around him.
Countless thousands
were standing there
    to serve him.
The time of judgment began,
    and the books were opened.

13 As I continued to watch the vision that night,

I saw what looked like
    a son of man
coming with the clouds of heaven,
and he was presented
    to the Eternal God.
14 He was crowned king
    and given power and glory,
so that all people
of every nation and race
    would serve him.
He will rule forever,
and his kingdom is eternal,
    never to be destroyed.
