2-16-16 Give and Take

Druck

Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

Luke 8:18 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a warning to you lukewarm soul

Who merely ponders Jesus on a whim:

You say you are a Christian, play the role.

You think you’ll skate on in; your chance is grim.

If you will truly give your life to Christ

And use with grace the gifts He gives to you,

The salt you are will then be double spiced;

The love you have, much more will you accrue.

If you believe that you have got it made,

Your show of knowledge now will disappear.

What little faith you claim will soon be swayed;

Your mediocre worship won’t cohere.

Be careful how you hear: from heart or head.

The one will find the Lord, the other’s dead.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: You cannot fake your way into the kingdom of heaven. If you don’t think you’re saved, you’re likely not. Go to the cross right now. You’ll gain a lot.

10-0915 Corrupt

satan

And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Genesis 6:12 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Just like the days of Noah we are here, 1

Surrounded by corrupted flesh in sin,

Young children run the streets without a fear

Committing theft and murder with a grin.

Morality has been tied up and shot,

And no one cares to bring it back to life.

Debauchery is now the thing that’s sought;

We do not know who’s husband, who is wife.

The color of our skin is cause for hate,

And Satan’s men kill Christians on a whim.

Please find the Lord before it grows too late!

The midnight bell is tolling, loud and grim.

The Second Coming’s nigh and we can tell.

Put all your armor on! We’re fighting hell! 2

1 Matthew 24:37

2 Ephesians 6:11-18

6-28-15 The Children of Wrath

child of wrath

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Ephesians 2:3 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The world is filled with sin up to the brim

And we think we are outside looking in.

I tell you, brother, things are looking grim,

But don’t pretend you’re perfect in your win!

Instead of pointing fingers at the rest,

Remember you were where they are right now.

Right now it is God’s grace that has you blessed;

Without it you’d have hell to pay, and how!

You may have been a step from reprobate

When you chose to accept the Savior’s hand.

Each day such people cross right by your gate.

Please give them love, it may be their last stand!

Don’t be judgmental, be compassionate.

Without Christ’s cleansing blood you’d be unfit.

4-23-15 The Lamb

Lamb-in-Revelation-610x350

There comes a day when all the universe

Will rise up with one voice and praise the Lamb,

And everything that is, though so diverse,

Acclaims the worthy One of the I AM.

The Lamb was slain for all the sins of man,

Receiving power as the Lord of Lords,

And riches of the grace that e’er began,

And wisdom far beyond the mind explored,

And strength to conquer evil dark and grim,

And honor equal to our Father God,

And glory of salvation promised Him,

And blessings evermore the heavens laud.

            The Lamb will always sit upon the throne

            Forever and forever, ever known.

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

Revelation 5:11-13 KJV

10-19-14 The Lord’s Prayer 04: Forgive Us

forgive us

O Father God, forgive us each our sins,

Not that we do deserve it but through grace,

And when in our repentance then begins

With faith to know that Jesus took our place.

We had a debt to You that Christ has paid,

Then understand that we should be like Him

To thus forgive the sins against us made,

No matter how mundane, how much, how grim.

Let us not think when we forgive a debt

That we should be forgiven just the same,

But with no strings attached to then beget,

Forgiving as You do, no more to blame.

O God, forgive us now on bended knee,

As we forgive our brother faithfully.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And forgive us our debts,

as we forgive our debtors.

Matthew 6:12 KJV
