9-24-15 His Power in You

Jesus Tempted

8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Matthew 4:8-10 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

When Satan comes and whispers in your ear,

Or more than likely shoves it in your face,

And tempts you with his guile, then have no fear

For Jesus dwells with you in every case.

The father of all lies knows who you are;

He wants to have you bow to him alone.

He’ll offer you the world and go so far

As giving you a seat upon a throne.

The Savior lives and breathes the Holy Ghost;

The power that raised Him is in you, too.

The next time Satan offers you the most

Just let the Spirit get ahold of you.

Say ‘Get behind me, Lucifer! You lose!

I serve the Lord above! It’s Him I choose!’

8-23-15 On Sowing

Seeds

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption;

but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Galatians 6:8 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

They say that what you eat is what you are;

If that’s the case the world is full of waste.

The things that we consume won’t get us far:

The flesh is born to die, a fleeting taste.

Wherever you invest your consciousness,

Will soon become a new reality.

Then set your heart on Spirit to access

A truth that leads to immortality.

The Spirit that you sow should be of love;

For God so loved the world He gave His Son,

And from that fruit abides new life above.

The seeds you plant from this won’t be undone.

The way of flesh leads certainly to death.

The way of Spirit brings eternal breath.

6-6-15 No Peace

the-scream-1893 Edvard Munch

There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

Isaiah 48:22 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Today the wicked roam the earth with glee

Without a sense of consequence or care.

They take what isn’t theirs and say it’s free;

Depravity and death stink up the air.

Don’t think that they are getting by with this,

Although it seems that now it is the case.

A reckoning will come that they can’t miss;

The wicked won’t have peace – no, not a trace.

The evil that men do will haunt their souls

If they don’t turn to Jesus and confess.

When death arrives they’ll see then He controls

And it will be too late: there’s no redress.

Eternity’s forever without peace.

Serenity in Christ will never cease.
