Alpha-Omega

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Revelation 21:6 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

When all the jots and tittles finally pass, 1

And Jesus testifies that it is done,

New heaven and new earth are seen at last; 2

‘Tis then the wedding feast shall have begun.

The Lord of Lords and King of Kings will stand:

I AM the Alpha and Omega, too,

Beginning and the end, sublime and grand;

The promises I’ve made have all come true.

To all who thirst for life I freely give,

Refreshing and delightful with no end.

When You are one with Me you truly live;

The things I’ve said you will now comprehend.”

And O! The cup of love that’s passed around

Will overflow forever and abound!

1 Matthew 5:18

2 Revelation 21:1

7-28-14 Every Good and Perfect Gift

spiritual gifts

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,

and cometh down from the Father of lights,

with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

James 1:17 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

If you should start to doubt God’s love for you,

Consider all the gifts He showers down,

A Father giving freely kind and true,

His blessings good and perfect so abound.

God sacrificed His Son so you may live,

And now Christ lives in you so bold and pure.

If you repent your sins He will forgive,

God wants you to come Home, of this be sure.

This light that’s in you, God’s the Father of,

The essence of the Word that’s always been,

Unchanging and eternal source of love,

The DNA of Spirit makes you kin.

God’s gifts, too many for this pen to trace

Are found upon the cross and in His Grace.

the cross

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

2 Corinthians 9:15 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

Of all the gifts that God so freely gives,

There’s none to match the one on Calvary.

The sacrifice of Christ our heart relives,

And breaks it every time, too much to see.

He willingly went forth with you in mind;

His body torn and beaten horribly.

A crown of thorns upon His head was twined;

He bore it all for you so humbly.

Then, O, upon the cross they hung our Lord

Upon the cross that’s meant for you and me!

He took our sins upon His own accord

And suffered there – my Lord! – unspeakably.

God sacrificed His Son upon the cross,

A gift so great my tongue is at a loss.
