2-24-16 Passed Away

tears

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Revelation 21:4 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

You’re grieving now, I know. I’m grieving, too.

A soul we love so dearly’s passed away.

Our tears fall now and sadness pushes through.

We mourn our loss but know that one fine day

There will be no more death, no last embrace,

No sorrow, no more mourning, no more pain.

The love of Christ our Lord shall be in place,

The glory of His presence then shall reign,

And God shall wipe all tears from all our eyes;

Here crying is replaced with laughter’s song.

We’ll reunite with loved ones; joy will rise,

For we will all be where we should belong.

We’ve lost a friend and sister here today,

But soon these sort of things shall pass away.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: Let us celebrate in Christ, for we will one day be reunited.

7-7-14 Dirge #18 – Lovers of Pleasure Rather Than Lovers of God

lover of pleasure

“My neighbor’s girl is so hot that it hurts!” drooled the man to his friend in the yard;

She was fifteen but he wanted her bad and he’d have her while leaving her scarred.

Beware of your lust, she’s a child with her trust!

You have already sinned, but you had better rescind;

Turn to God right away or you’re dust!

“Football’s my life; I just live for the game!” yelled the man at his friends in the room.

He painted his body and was flaunting it now; he had willed this be done for his tomb.

“Beware, sporting fan, you’re ignoring God’s plan!

Idol worship is wrong and you drag it along;

Be this ardent for Christ if you can!

“I’ve played this game for three days in a row!” the boy boasted to all who could hear.

He was foul and unwashed and just lived in his room; the real world had long disappeared.

Beware, pleasure slut, you are stuck in a rut!

You’re life’s slipping away; you’ve forgotten the Way;

Hell’s just waiting, and you’re making the cut!

Joy and contentment are found in the Lord; all the others are toys of the damned.

Only in Jesus will you find your bliss; cry His name now or always be scammed.

We are all hopeless sinners, but in Christ we are winners!

Feel the Spirit’s conviction and be saved from addiction!

1 “But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days.

2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud,

blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,

3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self control,

brutal, without love for what is good,

4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures

     rather than lovers of God,

5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power.

Avoid these people!”

 

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (HCS)
