10-29-15 Awake!

dead asleep

Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Ephesians 5:14 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The unregenerate cannot arise

Without the blood of Jesus on their soul,

So more than dead they head to their demise

Unless they’re sought and Christ they choose in whole.

Yet saints may be asleep among the dead

Who’ve wandered from the light with constant sin,

So blow the trumpet loud beside their bed, 1

Remind them who they are and where they’ve been.

Awake, you sons and daughters of our God!

Stand up and Christ will surely give you light!

He’s coming soon, my friend, so don’t you nod,

Get oil for your lamp 2 and keep it bright! 3

Awake from all the dead, you sleepyhead!

There’s no more time to doze, He’s just ahead!

1Joel 2:1

Hypocrite

21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?

22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?

23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?

Romans 2:21-23 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Those Christians who don’t practice what they preach

Are like a blind man with a lamp in hand.

If they walk by just stay out of their reach

Else you be dragged with them into quicksand.

They’ve seen a lot but never really looked, 1

And love pretending they know what they don’t.

They serve the truth but it tastes undercooked;

Stay far away but be forewarned: they won’t.

We can be hypocrites though ignorant

Until the Holy Spirit checks our walk,

But woe to them who know but live a front;

They do no good and harm the future flock. 2

Call out your brother if he lives a lie.

In doing so make sure you too comply.

1Isaiah 42:20

2 Romans 2:24

8-26-14 Behold

christ-at-hearts-door

Today may be the day that Jesus knocks

Upon the door of ev’ry single heart,

And then there will be no more need of clocks,

For when He comes again He won’t depart.

Don’t be like those who’ve turned the volume up

And thus can’t hear Him knocking at the door,

Nor those asleep with wine still in their cup,

Too drunk with sin to get up from the floor.

Keep extra oil beside your ready lamp,

And if you nap be like a newborn’s mom.

There won’t be time to dawdle like a tramp;

The bridegroom’s at the door! Be quick and calm.

            Will you be ready for the Master’s voice?

            The ones who hear His call will soon rejoice.

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

Behold, I stand at the door and knock;

if anyone hears My voice and opens the door,

I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.

Revelation 3:20 KJV

8-18-14 A Lamp Unto Your Feet

bible

The word of God is like a lamp unto your feet,

A shining light of verity and love;

With this within your heart it bears receipt,

A witness to the One it’s written of.

The Bible shows you how you ought to be

And brightens ev’ry step along the way;

It also lives and breathes so you can see

The Spirit moves all through it’s vast display.

O friend! Please read about the Lamb of God,

The things He said and how He died for you.

No greater love than this the path He trod,

And if you follow Him you’ll live anew.

            Within the Bible’s pages you will find

            The Way, the Truth, the Life, God’s Grace defined.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,

and a light unto my path.
