9-23-15 Side by Side

side by side

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

Isaiah 11:6 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~~

When Eve and Adam lived in Eden land,

There were no predators, no blood was spilled.

The glory of the Lord was full and grand,

And everything that lived was love fulfilled.

Then sin arrived, corrupting all it touched

And flesh once sacred now became just meat.

The earth was soaked in blood and death was clutched,

And man became the worst to kill and eat.

The Son of God was born to bring God’s love;

His miracles wrought Eden bit by bit,

And when the Lord returns from up above

The Garden fills the world and sin will quit.

The lion and the lamb lay side by side,

And childlike love will be the earth’s new guide.

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.
