Can you say ” I have no King but Jesus?”

Posted by appolus on September 11, 2010

When your faced with a God that does not serve you. When you are robbed, beaten, cheated, taken advantage of. When someone close to you dies, a loved one is murdered, will you turn your back on God?Jesus did not stack up against Barabbas. Barabbas was a rebel against Rome. Jesus was silent on Rome. The crowd methodically rejected a captive and scourged Jesus until finally it came to the truth of the matter and it proclaimed ” We have no king but Caesar.” Shocking, isn’t it? But what about you? Can you truly say ” I have no King but Jesus?” Or are you too looking for someone to sort out the world?”

 

CAN YOU SAY ” I HAVE NO KING BUT JESUS?”

Can you truly say ” I have no King but Jesus?” Or are you too looking for someone to sort out the world?” Below is an portion of a reply to this on another forum from a dear brother in Christ……………….

I was overshadowed by the Presence of the Spirit of God.

In that moment I felt His deep love rest upon me… an indiscrible release and rapture in my spirit, accompanied by a peace and a joy unspeakable that only comes from the Holy Spirit…it felt as if my innocence was completely returned to me in that moment before God, and indeed it was, as the Blood of the Lamb was sprinkled over my sins. It was in that moment, while the Spirit of God was upon me, that I humbly looked up into heaven and I worshipped Him who made the Heavens and the Earth. It was in that moment that I decided that I would love the God of heaven forever…I decided this, and I told Him so.

In that moment I understood the beauty of the Lord, His magnificence and His majesty; I felt my soul knit to the Lord. My soul loves Him above all else in this life, for He is my lot and my portion forever. In that moment I understood Him in the depths of my spirit; I cried out to the one who formed me from the dust of the Earth and I said to Him…I will love you in my heart forever! I made my abode with Him, and He came into my heart and He made His abode with me.

My mind is continually upon Him…His anointing remains with me. I feel His Spirit continually drawing me…and my heart is tender and loves Him above anything else in this world. It is hard to put such things into words because these things are Spirit. I love Him in my very soul; in the very center of my being…I cannot explain it. I extol Him above all things as standing before Him. I yield to your Spirit Lord Jesus, that I should love you in this way. I desire you above the love of women; my soul yearns and thirsts for you; I am born of you. I choose to love you in my heart, for you are beautiful to me, I love everything about you…your gentleness, your kindness, your long suffering, forgiveness and patience for me, the list goes on and on…Oh to worship you in your beautiful glory, in the beauty of holiness. Oh to behold you…how my soul is transformed into your image as I worship you…Oh to be as you are my Lord and my King. To be like you, to be called your son is the greatest gift and reward of love…to have your beautiful Holy Spirit in my soul changing me into your image. I have no King but Jesus!

My heart is tender and contrite…melted within me by the holy fire of God’s love, as wax before the Flame. Oh how I love and extol the living God of heaven!! Oh how truly pleased I am with Him!! With deepest humility I want to state how grateful I am that the Lord has saved me, and washed me from my sins, and that my name is written down in heaven! With humility of spirit, meekness, unpretentiousness and modesty, I gladly accept your calling on my life oh love of my soul…with the joy and communion of the Holy Spirit. Your word, your pure and holy word burns within me with indescribable and unquenchable fire and zeal; I love, worship and extol you oh living God of heaven…beyond all else in this life. I have no King but Jesus!”

How about you, can you testify to this very same thing. Does Jesus burn in the center of your heart consuming your waking thoughts? Is He your all? Can you truly testify ” I have no King but Jesus?!” ……..brother Frank

    Hi Johnny, yeah, I always pull something from the article and that is what you see if you you come onto the main site. In this particular case it just happens to be the first paragraph 🙂 Love you brother………brother Frank

    Hi Frank. Thanks so much for posting this. This place in the Lord is so sweet that it defies explaining. In that moment, nothing else matters; just being in the presence of the Almighty. All campaigns and petitions seem all but irrelevant as we tarry in that place with the Savior. Jesus Christ, who is before all things and by whom all things consist. He who bore our sins upon himself, that we might live with him forever. We need this. More of this. To set aside the distractions, be still, and know that he is God.

    In these times, such fellowship isn’t simply a blessing. With scriptural fulfilment bearing down, it will become an absolute necessity. What an incredible peace.

    Blessings always in Jesus name.

      Amen brother. I totaly agree. We must edify and encourage one another, especially in the near future. The seperation process is already well under way. Sheep from goats, wheat from tares, with or without oil. The tare becomes very apparant just before harvest, it is readily identifiable even although for most of its existance it looks like and mimics the wheat. So, it is the season itself that identifies and seperates……….brother Frank
