8-8-15 Undoing Satan’s Plan

Healing

32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.

34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

Mark 1:32-34 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Before the serpent dared deceive poor Eve

The Garden was a paradise on Earth.

There was no sickness and no cause to grieve;

No sin existed, no defect or dearth.

But after Adam fell and sin moved in,

Disease and devils grew across the land.

Then Jesus came and let His work begin,

Rebuking and undoing Satan’s plan.

Christ showed us all with action what to do,

Now that we are ambassadors of His:

Reclaim the Garden, in His name renew,

Beginning in ourselves the way Christ is.

With Jesus in control, God’s kingdom come;

With love prepare for New Jerusalem.

6-17-16 Shut Your Mouth

shut your mouth

For he that will love life, and see good days,

let him refrain his tongue from evil,

and his lips that they speak no guile

1 Peter 3:10 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

A lying tongue will come to no good thing,

For it will come around to face the liar.

If you would be like Christ your tongue should bring

The words the Holy Ghost set it afire.

Refrain from evil talk, it flogs the soul,

Removing you as witness of the Word.

The things you say affects you as a whole,

And who desires sickness? Now that’s absurd!

Beguiling words are fashioned to deceive;

If you can’t speak with love then shut your mouth.

Christ told you ‘Yea’ or ‘Nay’ but not to thieve;

If you must speak share Jesus North and South.

If you desire a life that’s full of love,

Tell others what the gospel is made of.

11-10-14 Go Away!

Get Thee Behind Me

The moment you awake to face the day

The devil is around to tempt your soul.

He’ll whisper ‘You’re not worthy now to pray,’

And ‘God’s too busy now to play that role.’

The father of all lies will turn your head;

He has a million ways to make you doubt.

Pick up the shield of faith and move ahead

And say “Behind me, Satan! Go! Get out!”

You do not have to deal with him at all;

Just use the Word of God as Spirit’s sword.

Call out to Jesus, He won’t let you fall;

No, Satan cannot fight against the Lord.

When you are saved you only choose to sin;

Stay close to God, don’t let the devil win.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Get thee behind me, Satan!

Luke 4:8 KJV
