“My King” – Dr. 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 a racial 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 show His handiwork. My King is the only one whom there are no means of measure can define His limitless love. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shore of supplies. No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing. Well, well, 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 centrepiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. He’s august. He’s unique. He’s unparalleled. He’s unprecedented. He’s supreme. He’s pre-eminent. Well, He’s the loftiest idea in literature. He’s the highest personality in philosophy. He’s the supreme problem in high criticism. He’s the fundamental doctrine of proved 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. Well, He’s the only one able to supply all of 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 strong God and He guides. 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. Do you know Him? Well, my King is the key 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. Yeah. Yeah. That’s my King. My King, yeah. 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. Well. I wish I could describe Him to you, but He’s indescribable. He’s indescribable. Yes. He’s incomprehensible. He’s invincible. He’s irresistible. I’m coming to tell you, the heavens of heavens cannot contain Him, let alone a man explaining 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. Well, Pharisees couldn’t stand Him, but they found out they couldn’t stop Him. Pilot couldn’t find any fault in Him. The witnesses couldn’t get their testimonies to agree. Herod couldn’t kill Him. Death couldn’t handle Him and the grave couldn’t hold Him. That’s my King. Yeah. He always has been and He always will be. I’m talking about He had no predecessor and He’ll have no successor. There was 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 King! 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 it’s God’s power. Thine is the power. Yeah. And the glory. We try to get prestige and honour 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? And ever and ever and ever and ever. And when you get through with all of the evers, then, Amen.

  1. Youve got that right elisabeth. I love this sermon…I put it on before church everyweek while im getting my guitars tuned up. It is very uplifting and really gets my ready to worship

  2. If only every person in America could here this I believe we would have a revival like no other revival in History. If this doesn’t cause you to get excited about the God that we serve then I don’t think anything can.

  3. This ‘sermon’ (more like a heartfelt outpouring of the image of God) is what happens when people know God for who he is.

    Anyone hearing this and not feeling the Spirit dancing around their heart is obviusly in need of Him.

    Let’s keep this picture of God strong, and tell everyone….

  4. WOW, this sermon is wonderful.

    A friend of mine have this sermon in his mp3 and I ask him to send it to me and I been listeing all morning. I would like to memorize it.

  5. This is amazing, great work on the video. Just a couple of typos that I see though that need to be changed. Near the beginning “and the firmament show his handiwork” should be “showeth” and also a little later it reads “He’s the carnal necessity of spiritual necessity.” He is actually saying “cardinal” (big difference in that word). Jesus is not carnal (worldly). Just thought I’d let you know. Wonderful work!

  6. Sorry, it read “He’s the carnal necessity of spirital religion.” not “spiritual necessity.” but anyway it should be “cardinal” not “carnal”.

  7. Carolyn…yeah there are some typos. I took the text and video from another site showing it…and they allow you to download and use it…I’m going to add the site to the post.
    Thanks for checking things out

  8. to whom can help me,

    im looking for pastor LOCRIDGE’S ”THAT’S MY KING” audio version , only with the soft violin instrumental that you still here once in a great while on bbn. here in raleigh, in the early 80’s back in chicago wmbi 90.1 fm moody bible institutes radio music segments would play this, can i some how obtain this.

    please let me know, in ”HIS GREAT LOVE ”

    thank you wayne kulesza.

  9. I keep this on my computer for the days when I don’t feel so good!! If this don’t fire you up your wood is way too wet!! He’s my King!!! Hallelujah!!

  10. Yes. It’s either “The Lordship of Christ” or “The Lordship of Jesus Christ”. Although I was already a Christian (3 years) when I heard it the first time, it really changed my understanding of Christ’s Lordship and drew me into a closer fellowship with him. Find a copy and you’ll enjoy it for the rest of your life. I was actually searching for it when I found “My King”.

  11. I am looking for the video with the topic Psams 23
    on Dr. S.M. Lockridge

    Where might I find this?

  12. i love this more than anything because of the fact that this is probably the best way to describe God almighty. i was wondering if anyone knows where i can download this for free so i can let everyone hear it on myspace. my e-mail is lcleek1@msn.com. thank you!

  13. Below is where you can request a series of tapes by Dr. Lockeridge. I don’t know if it’s downloaded on any site.

    I hope this helps.

  14. best message only to the bible itself. Poignant poetry in motion. Magical expressions of time tested service.singularly, sane, significant searching satisfying and Sanctified message that hits at the core of whoe we are. it tells that the excectional is not marginal but magnificent, magnanimous, mainstream and mediatory! Sanctified

  15. This is awesome. I have never felt the Holy Spirit as strong in my life as I did when I heard this sermon. Man this is just AWESOME. Thank you Mr. Lockridge for doing this and blessing all of us here and those who have gone before us. God is good and this is fabulous.

  16. Wouldn’t be fun to see if we could get enough money to have this as a 6 minute paid commercial during the 2008 elections. “You can not impeech Him and He’s not going to resign!” That’s My King!

  17. “my king” how awesome is our jesus!!!! brings home the trueness of our god and how much he loves us all from every walk of life!!!! He is my king!!

  18. I first heard Dr Lockrige’s ‘Proclamation of Jesus’ at the ‘New Wine’ Conference in Somerset here in the UK in 1994 so I guess it’s been around since the 1980’s at least, and there are subtle variations in the various recordings I have heard since, BUT it is wonderfully inspirational, for me it always has been and always will be, there really is nothing else quite like it for raising one’s spirits.
    All I can add is another AMEN!!! What else?

  19. Am so touch by this.I’ll surely use it as a song of worship and praise to my King of Kings.
    God bless Dr.S.M. Lockridge

  20. This is just what I needed. I grew up in my daddy’s church listening to this type of powerful preaching. My God in heaven I missed it. My dad passed and I currently attend a wonderful church but they don’t do much of this type of preaching. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really appreciate my upbringing more now than ever.
