6-6-15 No Peace

the-scream-1893 Edvard Munch

There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

Isaiah 48:22 KJV


Today the wicked roam the earth with glee

Without a sense of consequence or care.

They take what isn’t theirs and say it’s free;

Depravity and death stink up the air.

Don’t think that they are getting by with this,

Although it seems that now it is the case.

A reckoning will come that they can’t miss;

The wicked won’t have peace – no, not a trace.

The evil that men do will haunt their souls

If they don’t turn to Jesus and confess.

When death arrives they’ll see then He controls

And it will be too late: there’s no redress.

Eternity’s forever without peace.

Serenity in Christ will never cease.

8-20-14 Still in Darkness


The world is filled each day with so much hate;

The sons of darkness roam the streets for blood.

Beware the ones who claim the Light is great,

But swims within the murk of evil’s flood.

You know the ones who stink of Satan’s touch

Although they bathe in virtue’s sweet perfume.

They walk with nose upright a tad too much

And point their finger all around the room.

The food may look so pleasing to your eye

But if the taste’s not right you will not eat.

The ones professing righteousness are sly

But just beneath the skin lies rotten meat.

            You can’t love Christ and hate your fellow man

            There is no room for loathing in God’s plan.


Whoever says he is in the light

and hates his brother is still in darkness.

1 John 2:9 ESV
