2-25-14 Father, Forgive Them

Father Forgive Them 02

When Jesus had been beaten, scorned and mocked

Then hung upon the cruel and rugged cross,

He saw the crowd and soldiers as they flocked,

Those naive to this implicated loss.

Some did not know the evil they performed

To crucify the perfect Lamb of God;

So ignorant the prophesies performed,

They did what they were told with just a nod,

And even on the cross compassion swelled

Within the Savior’s faintly beating heart;

He called His Father where in Heaven dwelled:

Forgive them, they are unaware their part.

Such love that Jesus had unto the end

To intercede as our eternal Friend.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Then said Jesus,

Father,

forgive them;

for they know not what they do.

And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Luke 23:34 KJV

2-5-15 Eating with Sinners

jesus-with-sinners unknown artist

The Savior came to Earth with one real goal,

To save us sinners from our helpless state.

In order for the Lord to make us whole

He had to sit with us and share our plate.

If Christ had wanted, He’d have climbed the throne

And saved His people from the Roman rule,

But He had bigger plans, to thus atone

For all our sins upon the cross so cruel.

So here He was, our God, the great I AM,

Receiving sinners in His company.

He lived among us as the perfect Lamb;

He gave His life for us to set us free.

If you surround yourself with Christian kind

How can you help the Savior heal the blind?

~~~~~~~~~~~

And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying,

This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

Luke 15:2 KJV

1-14-15 Know It All

If God can count the hairs upon your head,

And see the sparrow as it falls to earth,

He also fathoms everything you’ve said,

Without exception knows your thoughts since birth.

There is not anything that God can’t do;

He sees within your heart, your soul, your mind.

He understands your essense through and through

And loves you just the same when cruel or kind.

Don’t be afraid to learn God knows it all;

He cares for you despite your every wart.

If you but listen you can hear His call:

“Come Home,” He says “My Son is your escort.”

Just take His hand, my friend, and you will find

Your thoughts and ways will soon become refined.

~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that thou canst do every thing,

and that no thought can be withholden from thee.

Job 42:2 KJV

6-22-14 Dirge #13: The Brutal

brutal

“Pick up that mess or I’ll hit you again,” growled the muscle bound man to his son;

That was the way his own father had been, to beat him ’til his work was done.

Beware, brutal man, you’re living a sinister plan!

So nasty and savage, you constantly ravage.

You’re working toward Hell if you can!

“Give me the money you spend on your lunch,” said the bully to a smaller boy;

He goes around slapping the young kids around; it gives him some weird sense of joy.

Beware, cruel one,  a heart you have none!

You think you are cool, but you’re Satan’s blunt tool;

Keep it up and you’ll die by a gun!

“Tell me you’re Christian and I’ll kill you now!” cried the wild-eyed man with a knife;

He wants his religion to rule in the land, so convert or he’ll take your life.

Go away with your rage, you belong in a cage!

You get drunk on our blood, leave us dead in the mud;

Such eternal damnation’s your stage!

Your only hope to escape certain Hell is complete supplication to God.

If you surrender your heart to the Lord, He alone can forgive what is flawed.

The savage and mean can still be washed clean

By the blood of the Savior, who can heal cruel behavior.

1 “But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days.

2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud,

blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,

3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self control,

 brutal, without love for what is good,

4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures

rather than lovers of God,

5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power.

Avoid these people!”

 

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (HCS)
