4-20-15 God is Light

purelight

Here is, my brother, wisdom bold and true:

That God the Father of us all is light.

There is no darkness in Him, through and through;

He is both true and holy in His might.

The gloom of sin can’t hide from Him at all;

He sees within our hearts, there’s no disguise.

His light is life to all things great and small;

Illuminating both the earth and skies.

God turned the lowly shepherd boy to king;

He walked the earth as Jesus, two as one.

He makes the dead to live and angels sing;

He calls the second coming of His Son.

Our God’s the light of Grace and Mercy, too;

He is the light of love, and He loves you.

~~~~~~~~~~~

This then is the message which we have heard of him,

and declare unto you,

that God is light,

and in him is no darkness at all.

1 John 1:5 KJV

12-16-14 Harvest Looms*

harvest looms

Oh, can you feel the day grow closer now?

Be sure the enemy can feel this, too!

He drags his claws across the earth to plough

And sows his evil seeds against us few.

Plant upon all hearts the Savior’s love,

And fertilize it well with works of good.

We need each other now to rise above;

The wheat of saints won’t be misunderstood.

Now come into the field with me; don’t shirk!

The harvest day approaches, see the signs?

Don’t try to pull the tares, that’s reaper-work!

Now quickly spread the gospel so divine!

A fire’s being stoked, His blade is keen!

Let’s help each other out; time to be seen!

~~~~~~~~~~~

And let us consider one another

to provoke unto love and to good works:

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together,

as the manner of some is;

but exhorting one another: and so much the more,

as ye see the day approaching.

Hebrews 10:24,25 KJV

(*Reference to Matthew 13:24-30)

10-3-14 Patiently Waiting for Christ

Patiently Waiting

Oh Lord, direct our hearts into God’s love,

That perfect sanctuary full of light,

Where angels always worship from above

And fills our souls with gladness in His sight.

Now let us be submerged in holy praise

So that we might arrive into God’s heart.

We pray that we might linger all our days

While we await our Saviour to impart

His presence promised, then to be achieved

When those who died in Him begin to rise.

Count us, Oh Lord, among those who believed

And waited steadily with no disguise.

Please draw us into God’s pure heart where we

Anticipate Christ’s coming patiently.

 ~~~~~

And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God,

and into the patient waiting for Christ.

2 Thessalonians 3:5 KJV

10-2-14 Speak

speak

In Syria are Christians being killed

For not converting to the Muslim view,

And in the USA the schools are filled

With kids that don’t know Jesus to be true.

We didn’t see our Savior killed that day;

We didn’t see Him rise up from the tomb,

But all we see and hear He made this way

So we may know the Truth and not assume.

From prayer are miracles you can’t deny;

You’ve heard the Holy Spirit speak to you.

Speak boldly of these things though men may try

To kill the gospel and your freedom, too.

You know that what you’ve seen and heard is right;

Be brave! Defend the gospel truth forthright.

~~~~~

For we cannot but speak the things

which we have seen and heard.

Acts 4:20 KJV
