9-24-15 His Power in You

Jesus Tempted

8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Matthew 4:8-10 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

When Satan comes and whispers in your ear,

Or more than likely shoves it in your face,

And tempts you with his guile, then have no fear

For Jesus dwells with you in every case.

The father of all lies knows who you are;

He wants to have you bow to him alone.

He’ll offer you the world and go so far

As giving you a seat upon a throne.

The Savior lives and breathes the Holy Ghost;

The power that raised Him is in you, too.

The next time Satan offers you the most

Just let the Spirit get ahold of you.

Say ‘Get behind me, Lucifer! You lose!

I serve the Lord above! It’s Him I choose!’

8-19-15 Not One

sinner3

As it is written,

There is none righteous, no, not one:

Romans 3:10 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

How many think they’re good enough for God,

At least are good enough to Heaven dwell?

I tell you, think such things and you’re a fraud,

The only place you’ve earned is down in hell.

You can’t stroll through an operating room

Or roam around within the CIA;

What makes you think you’re good with cheap perfume?

The stench of all your sins gives you away.

Not one of us are righteous, no not one.

A speck of sin keeps you from Heaven’s door.

But covered in the blood of Christ it’s done;

Believe He died for you, your sins He bore.

The grace of God allows this all to be;

Without it there’s no hope for you and me.

5-4-15 On Hunger

bread-wheat-bible

But he answered and said,

It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Matthew 4:4 KJV

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

The food you eat will satisfy the gut,

Until it cries again more frantically.

The hungrier you are the more you glut

Until you grow so big the moon can see.

If you would only hunger for the Word

A fraction of the time you think of food,

The words within your Bible would be blurred,

The letters faded from the times they’re viewed.

The Lord provides whatever that you need,

So don’t be stressed, He’s pulled you through before.

If manna’s what God gives for you to feed,

Be grateful and thank Him forever more.

The words proceeding from the mouth of God

Will give you life eternal filled and awed.

1-8-15 Fulfilled

prophecy

Take every prophecy about the Lord

And check against the things that He has done,

And you will find that all across the board

Without a doubt He filled them every one.

Just trace the virgin birth until His death,

And then His resurrection and ascent,

The prophets witnessed with emboldened breath

About the Son of God from Heaven sent.

The odds of this are astronomical;

Indeed it leaves no doubt of who He is,

Yet many men still think it comical.

If only they could see this all is His.

            The proof of Christ our Savior are fulfilled

            And there are more to come the Father willed!

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

And he said unto them,

These are the words which I spake unto you,

while I was yet with you,

that all things must be fulfilled,

which were written in the law of Moses,

and in the prophets,

and in the psalms,

concerning me.

Luke 24:44 KJV
