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!

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

6-12-15 Blessed Be He

Hands rise up in prayer

Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD:

we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

Psalm 118:26 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Had Jesus lived and taught when David ruled,

The King would bless Him from the temple grounds.

But Christ came when the Priests their hearts were cooled,

And all He heard from them were angry sounds.

But we disciples of the risen Lord

Sing out “Hosanna!” with a single voice.

We worship Jesus whom we’ve long adored;

With blessings loud and strong we do rejoice!

In adoration from a faith full house,

Accept the Savior’s presence in your life.

The temple of your heart and mind espouse

The High Priest Christ whose perfect love is rife.

O blessed be the One who conquered death!

We live for Him and praise Him with each breath!

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
