10-14-15 Fear Only One

hell

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Matthew 10:28 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

If your great love of Jesus irritates

All they can do is drag you through the mud.

No need to fear the guns or knives of hate,

For they can only slay your flesh and blood.

No matter if you’re tortured, beaten, burned,

The most that can be done is transient.

Your soul’s immortal state cannot be turned;

One million years to it is time well spent.

Yet fear instead the One who holds your soul,

Deciding you should face eternal hell.

Your God created you in His control

And He decides the place where you will dwell.

Fear God if you are wicked; now repent!

Believe His Son, the Savior whom He sent.

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.

5-5-15 The Love of God

stars01

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

Of all of the uncertainties of life,

And there is nothing certain, not but one:

The love of God, through peace and change and strife,

Is absolutely true and not undone.

Not life or death will kill His love at all,

Nor angels, kings or principalities,

No power in the universe at all

Can stop His love in time or in degrees.

Not heaven, earth or hell can end God’s love,

No creature in the sky or earth below.

It’s easier to count the stars above

Than find one thing His love can’t overthrow.

The love of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord,

Is undeniable across the board.
