What if it's true

How would you change?
If it were all true.
Heaven and Angels..
watching over you?

Is there Paradise in
..the hereafter?
Some just don't..
think things matter.

What if Swarms of angels..
like butterflies.
Came to earth..would you realize?
That everything matters
that life's the prize.
How long will it take..
till you recognize..

What if the sun went dark.
What if it were true?
Would you change your ways?
Have a new point of view?

What if the Four horseman..
came galloping in?
Would your conscience feel clear?
Would you regret a sin?

Our toys are just toys..
It's not about money.
It's about loving each other..
and holding your honey.

It's about time..
and what we do with it.
Get up and dance..
or choose to sit.

The choice is yours.
So what will you do?
Will you change your ways?
What if it's true?

Wise Men Still Seek Him Today

W-hen the fullness of time had come, Jesus was born behind an Inn in a cave-like stable.
I-n the Inn there was no room for the Son of God, no room for the Saviour of men.
S-tar was shining so bright above the stable for the shepherds to find their way to Him.
E-ven angels proclaimed His birth to those shepherds "Unto you is born this day."
 
M-anger is where Mary and Joseph first laid him.  It was filled with hay.
E-very animal there must have known that their Creator had come that day. 
N-o one knew the depth of love God had, to give His Son to dwell among men.
 
S-ame star guided three kings from the Orient, who studied the stars and heavens.
T-hese wise men from the East came saying "Where is He that is born King"
I-n their hands they brought him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrr.
L-ike these three wise men, wise men still seek him today! 
L-ove is the reason that God sent His only Begotton Son into the world to save us.
 
S-eeking for you and me, yes God was seeking for us because we had left Him.
E-veryone, yes, all we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone to his own way.
E-ach one has to make his on decision to follow Him or not to follow Him.
K-ing, born to be a King. King of the ages. King of the past. King of the future.

H-eaven, He came from Heaven to earth to show us the right way.
I-niquity, the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
M-elody, He gives us a sweet melody, we sing many songs of praise to Him.
 
T-ree, A Christmas tree, the love that Jesus had for us, to die on a tree.
O-nly one life and how soon it passes. Only in life can we accept His Love.
D-eliverance, He came from Heaven to preach deliverance to the captives.
A-cknowlege Him and accept Him. Behold now is the accepted time.
Y-ou, Yes, this Christmas Love was for You.  Will You accept this love?

For Brian Strands Christmas Love contest.

Fall from Grace A Roundel

Before the beginning of time when Chaos ruled Hell and Night
Into the depths of this Cosmos, a Paradise, perfectly placed.
Above this darkness, a heaven drawn forth in a burst of light
Before the beginning of time

From the Garden of Eden, henceforth, Adam and Eve were disgraced
Lo!  A fallen angel  changed himself to a serpent in Eve’s sight
Banished, they fled before God to a wilderness, forever displaced.

Forbidden fruit had shown them the difference of wrong from right.
In Pandemonia,  Demons conspired, sin and death be interlaced.
God sacrificed his Son to save them  - from Hell's eternal plight.
Before the beginning of time

Him

He knocks, but you do not answer the door for Him.
He wonders why you ignore Him 
and why you have turned your back on Him.
All he asks is that you believe in Him.
Accept Him.
Spend a little time with Him.
Have a daily talk with Him.
Is it too much to ask that you do well for Him? 
To walk right with Him? 
Have fellowship with Him? 
Let Him comfort and draw you near Him.
In your times of trials pray to Him.
He loves you dearly and would like to welcome you in Heaven with Him.

The Hypocritical Christian

I am the hypocritical Christian.
I say I follow Christ,
But I'm still consumed by my demons.
I go to church on Sunday,
But I refuse to invite someone back.
I want to serve on mission,
But I'm too afraid to act.
They think I read The Bible,
But I just fall asleep in it.
They think I'm positivity and smiles,
But underneath I'm death and addictions.
They think I'm clean and pure,
But I'm broken and mistaken.
I say I'm not worthy of His love,
But Jesus will never let me be forsaken.
I pray long prayers,
But inside they're empty repetition.
It might look as if my faith is strong,
But my core is too easily shaken.
I say the things I'm supposed to say,
But don't follow His actions or obey.
I speak the truth the church wants to hear,
But deep inside on matters I don't know what to believe.
I walk in shame as if I'm not good enough
To be loved by God and saved through Christ,
But there is nothing I could ever do to earn His peace;
It's a free gift.
I accept;
Now forgiven, changed, and released.
Thank You God,
Thank You Jesus,
Thank You Holy Spirit!
In Jesus' Holy Name,
We pray,
Amen!

the day you flew to Heaven


           We knew , it was if a moment stopped in time 
              hearing the news before most of the World did
           He loved to fly his plane from Colorado to Monterey Bay
           He was a avid golfer at Pebble Beach respected 

           He had loves and passions from many places 
           deciding to fly low through the overcast red sunset
            Not only did he love music and inspire all 
            He loved his Plane , he will always remain a beautiful Soul

              The next day it was confirmed ..all saddened 
             It was John Denver's plane that went down
             Today in Pacific Grove stands the Memorial 
             So Kiss me and smile for me we will ~

FATAL ATTRACTION

FATAL ATTRACTION
-------------------------
His lucent light illumines her eyes
His face outshines the sun
His ethereal beauty unveils the skies
Her vibrant vision swiftly succumbs

Her silenced tongue, his intimate touch
His intangible hands sliding/slithering
Spiraling down with a gentle glide
Her body cold and shivering 

His fiery eyes ignite a flame
Her attention he gains as she stares
Their lips entwine, his blissful rapture
Devours her heart from cares

Encapsulated, she can't escape
He clutches her in his arms
Her safe haven, her wedded love
His pearl preserved from harm

Her beating heart, a decelerate speed
Her aperture devoid of breath
His succulent waters drown her tongue
Compelling her closer to death

Solitary seclusion, her world in diffusion
Subverts her mind, subtracts her understanding
He gains her trust, thrusting utter confusion
Rest assuring her of a safe landing

She drowns herself to ceaseless sleep
In his grasp from detouring distractions
At her beauteous site, he rejoices and weeps
Absorbed in her FATAL ATTRACTION

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark.

Lonely Dreams

I never knew following dreams could be this lonely,
But up on the hill, looking back, thank God I'm not the old me.
If the tears will fall, let them be;
I believe this is God's plan, follow your dreams.

Money

Money money, ringing in your tills,
Calling us to worship,
The hundred dollar bills.
Bend our knees in wonder,
Bow our heads in awe,
At the power of the liar,
Who now controls us all.
From the darkest deep caverns,
To the stars in the sky,
From the infinite universe,
To the strangers passing by.

From your inner most conviction,
To your laughing in the night,
From everything you 're  seeing,
To everything out of sight.

The new God has risen,
To claim the holy throne,
The one that we have emptied,
Our hearts all cold as stone.

The throne that we have emptied,
We killed the rightful king,
Sold his crown an sceptre,
Pawned his sacred  ring.

Raised his bleeding body,
Up on that bloody hill,
The silent lamb still bleeding,
As the money fills your tills.

Hardest Tears to Fall

Tears too much in which you bleed
Heart aches toll, low sub's breathing
For then, in them, is shown in your skin

May it be brushed over
So it may sit to seep in this pale face
For you're in health
But yet sick in your emotions
Too close you can not bare now, today,
tomorrow, or again in yesterday's
For your pain is nearly not bared

I pray for you and your sister when weeping
Hopping that you will not drown in all sorrows
But cry when times are closed

Mother is all, not yet lost, for her heart lives inside yours
Knowing of a passing before it happens isn't so strong
But the second it comes, she goes and all weights toll
Heavy your heart is, you carry it like the ones in that room
All seems silent till a sob is heard

Hear at this event, the dark colors are all in the lights
The cold faces all glow so bright
For this woman has brought life into the minds
that breathed well before her time

To a loss like this, I would not bare
Alone I would feel, to a special youth that I still endore
For she is what's left of me; whom I may speak to, and 
whom would listen

As to you and your family, may you all lay close to her
May you breathe the way she has breathed
May you all see what she has seen
And may you hear all things she has heard

Her passing does not make your separation,
it only draws you closer
For the day of her event, bless her soul's crossing
for she stands in the clouds
Smiling above all your scene's
In hopes that you will all remember that she is still
there even through these means

I pray for you and your family to give potency and healing
To rejoice on the day she rose on cloud nine
And touched God's face
For this moment do hot dwell in the loss
Cry long but not for ever and remember
her years journey that she has completed
She is in thy safest place and thy hearts of whom she loved

Eating Twinkies with God

Eating Twinkies with God

The little boy walked into the park
the sun was shining very bright
he saw a lady old and frail
the sun reflected on her hair
Who is this lady, the little boy thought
with her hair so full of light


With two Twinkies in his bag and a coke in his hand
he walked to the bench and offered her one 
she accepted it gladly but no word came from her
except a bright smile and after a while
she had eaten, he shared his coke
and no word came from her except for that smile
then she held onto her cane , rose up and left 


The child hurried home and said to his mom
I went to the park and had Twinkies with God
but she was very old, now isn't that odd?
his mom looked at him and said
God touched your heart and you did something nice
you saw God through her face now here's my advice
when you grow up and I am old
just think of the lady in the park


The old lady came home and entered her house
she hung up her cane and said to her spouse
I went to the park and had Twinkies with God
but he was just a child, now isn't that odd?

God called Nathan Home

On January 5th 1992,
  God whispered in Nathan’s ear.
Oh, it seems like yesterday,
  But it’s been seventeen years.

God came into the hospital,
  And clutched him to Thy chest.
To accompany his little soul,
  Onto his heavenly quest.

Before he parted earth,
  And left for the above.
He felt his father’s warmth,
  And heard his mother’s love.

And after all this sadness,
  A place in heaven is our reward.
For Nathan is safe and sound,
  Up with the Lord of Lords.

Though he left you as an infant,
  Up in heaven he has grown.
For today’s the anniversary,
  That God called Nathan home.

I FELT A TOUCH

I FELT A TOUCH
--------------------
It touched me soft 
As a brush strokes 
The hairs of my head
Soothed, then smoothed
To a straightened end

A gentle, tranquil sensation
I'd never once embraced
Til the time of this day
We clashed face to face

A remarkable memory
Made it's monument's mark
Upon the lands it light trod
To flaunt the voyage embarked

An ethereal endless epic told
Throughout my temporal tenure
Writes historical classics
Painting ventures unseen
Nor uncovered except
By the sole, live witness
Present the era/day the scene 
Illumined with thickness

A misty, mystical, mythical 
Melancholy dream
Symmetrically lensed 
Amongst the mundane masses

An opalescent obstacle
For the morose eye
Its optometric mountain
Too immense to climb 

An empirical event
Embedded in my mind
With heart who won't detach
The touch from right behind 

It's my intimate film
Seen up close at first sight
My reminiscent rerun
Which I replay
Through the night

What Is This Church All About

What Is This Church All About?

Is this church meant for people like me?
Is this where God really wants me to be?

They claim to be filled with God’s spirit.
When it comes to HIS truth...  Can they give it?

I’m sure there’s many who come and attend
It’s more than “church on Sunday,” that we must spend!

We must reach out to the lost and the oppressed!
After all, Christ gave us his very best!

May we all preach the gospel and God’s holiness!
And strive to seek his awesome righteousness!

Living for Jesus must be a daily walk and experience!
Not simply based on our “ambitious self appearance.”

God isn’t interested in a denomination or a title…
He wants to know…  Do we really believe the Bible?

He’s not interested in the money put in the offering plate.
He wants to know; “Are you ready
 to enter heaven’s gate?”

May we strive to serve Jesus with a zeal and passion!
And be filled with his holiness and compassion!

May we serve Jesus from a heart of humbled confession!
And making our commitment to him,
 our #1 possession!

“Unless the Lord builds the house.”  
They labor in vain that build it!
Let’s seek the power of God! 
May his presence completely fill it!!

By Jim Pemberton

Lost Identity: View point of a slave

Why is my skin color different?
Did God make me this way?
When he made me, did he have
intentions on me being a slave?

And I thought we were all brothers,
including all the ones of different colors.

But why are they beating and hurting the others.
Someone save me, I didn't choose this life.
These scars, they've carved me with the sharpest
knives.

All I have is my faith.
Because if I'd held on to anything else
it'd be theres to take.

What is it that I ask for?
Equality, I preach.
Something small to you, 
but makes a difference
for me.

Whipping, spitting, hitting on me.
Raping our women in your wife's sheets.
Taking our children and turning them into workers.
No sense of empathy, grief or composer.

For the brotha' on my left and my sista' on the right,
with the courage that I hold I will continue to fight.
You have taken away my freedom, and most of my life.
But what you have failed to obtain is my state of mind.

Go ahead work my body, and do all that you please.
This is just a shell anyway, it's not coming with me.
You spit, you laugh, thinking you gained the world.
You think you have power because you've raped a young girl.

Stand tall sir with all of that pride.
And go ahead and hold it until the day that you die.
But your day will come when you'll fall to your knees.
Feeling the burn on your body from the whips you've given me.

"The LORD is my shelter,"
I continue to say.
While my soul goes up as God takes me away.
I wish you peace with smile on my face,
knowing that God teaches the fullness of grace.

Mind and Sound

Only light can penetrate the 
darkness
that resides in the default state 
of mind
I descend from beta to delta 
through
binaural beats; instantly caught 
between frequencies beyond 
time 

I absorb amplitudes of acoustic 
energy
and I learn to just be earth 
Since I am the earth 
and because I am of
the one that is the source of its 
existence, 
I've owned the power of 
omnificence 

I realize now that I AM because
HE is since I am from that, a 
descendant 
Created in the image of a 
thought
and a feeling from the 
Universal Mind
I tune in to this vibration from 
rhythmic
pulse that manipulates 
subconscious minds

Immersed  between 4 and 7 
hertz;
brainwaves halt to a conscious 
sleep
All  chakras are aligned shining 
crown energy 
and now my consciousness 
begins to reap! 
and light begins to penetrate 
the harmonious beams
that were already there
constant and always there 

is now flooded with sound 
patterns
that force brainwaves to submit 
to power
of omnipresent sound that 
always was 
and always will be connected to 
the Source from which I came
so I extend exponentially 
beyond;
physical time and space

I long to embrace the intensity 
of gamma rays
I give way to the coded sounds 
that resonate from the inner 
core
and continue to connect 
through the binaural beats that 
-  
remind me of before

Always familiar but ignored
until found by gaining 
knowledge of self
I listen with the intent to excel 
while reaping an abundance of 
benefits and rewards
Listen!! 
It's already yours

Just reach out and grab it 
as long as intention and ego is 
checked
the universe will correspond 
accordingly
it will deliver a life to you divine 
and orderly
Just listen to the sounds that 
were there from before
They will guide to to the 
vibration from the core
and it will guide you to connect 
directly with the source

The Constellation of The Christ

(Rev. 1: 20 / Rev. 2: 1, 28 / 2 Pet. 1: 19 / Rev. 22: 16)
(Matt. 27: 45 / Mark 15: 39 / Luke 23: 44)



The Constellation of The Christ
Includes The Bright Morning Star of Life
and Seven Stars Held In His Hand
Each Shines For Seven Congregations of Man

And Shining Near & Shining Far
Thru Time & Space Is That DayStar
and Where That DayStar Rise In Hearts
All Will See The Spectacular Start!

The Constellation of The Christ
Shone Brightest At His Sacrifice
For At High Noon! Darkness Covered The Land
When They Killed GOD's Son - The Son of Man ...

And A Roman Soldier After It Was Done
Even Knew and Said:  "This Was GOD's Son"
And A Darkness Covered The Entire Earth!
Because  JEHOVAH's  Heart Had Been Hurt ...

And In That Unusual, Storm-Dark Sight
The Universe ... Focused On That One Light!
Hung and Offered To Heaven's Throne
Was Lifted Up & Afterwards Went Home

For It Was From Above That Star Descended
And So Back To Heaven That Star Ascended
So The Breach Between Heaven & Earth Was Mended
& The Darkness of Death's Space Was Ended 

And Now, That Star Shines In The Sky
And Now, That Star Will Never Die
He's With The Father of Celestial Lights
Dwelling Where Its Unapproachably Bright!

But The Constellation of The Christ
Beckons Us Close To Eternal Life
And No Sights of Powerful Pulsars & Quasars
Can Compare To The Constellation of Our Savior

Christ Told Us To Let Our Faith Lights Shine
& Follow The Course of His Constellation Signs
and The Constellation of The Christ
Will Shine Forever Over Us In Paradise

You do not stand alone in your Battle
Your battle is our Battle

But we are there with you in Spirit

We are there in every beat of your Heart
In every whisper of the wind
In every thought and every touch
Every breath and every sound

We send you some of our Strength
Some of our will to Fight
Some of our Courage

Just give that Endless chain a little tug
And we'll be there
Tug til you need us no more
Then we'll know you've gone Home

Tender of Roses

Beloved, lovely roses: gift of God and lover’s flower,
Spread your colored petals and cradle tender showers.
While admiring the blossoms with their beauty to behold,
Ought we not to know the Tender of such lovely garden groves?

For He lovingly and thoughtfully wields His pruning shears
To cut away the stems of old for fuller future years.
He cultivates and feeds them. He attends them as a Father
Looking daily to their needs; so faithfully He waters.

From the dawn of morning dew until the setting sun arrays
Caring always for His own until that great appointed day…
When the Gardener comes to claim each one the earth held as its own.
He gently picks it at its peak and for His pleasure takes it home.

As God did one glorious morning, when the Perfect Rose had bloomed.
He rolled away the stone and met with Mary at the tomb.
There the sweetest Rose of Sharon rose that we die not alone.
But be gathered for a garden grove, surrounding heavens throne.

The Morning Star

The Morning Star
By Nate Spears
                                
There’s clarity in the depths on my deepest thought
I’m never blind to a world of darkness
I’m challenged by whatever in time
Defeated by my ambition in others

Close to my last day
But far from my last night
And I’m light years away
From my very last fight
 
The actions of the man
Creates the path of his life
The absence of the man
Restrains his rights
The mentality of a man
Saves the day he's granted 
The intent of the man
Leads him the way the earth has planned it


 So feel my rose as it fades 
Feel my pedals bring a new days
As I sprout beyond the stars
To a galaxy that stands out
The route brings the creation to light
After the day 
After the night
After the darkness
After my arrival 
The morning is tainted
The day is seen in a human’s eye 
Sight has been sinful before and after
You and I
This is the heart filled reason
For the birth Christ.

Don't Leave Me

I can't imagine being alive without you
I can't imagine what it will be like when your gone
I don't know what I'll become without you
Maybe I'll just run
Run away from everything and leave everyone behind
Maybe I'll find a way to be close to you
Because I won't believe you died 
My heart will ache so much more 
Tears will always run
My eyes will hold the wisdom 
That you bestowed upon me young
And my recklessness will be noticeable
People will wonder why
Why am I running when the person I needed most died
How can I face my life when I can't do anything right
I won't believe you have gone away
When God decides to take you
I'll still come by your house and always expect an answer
I Love You Gamma
You Taught Me About My Heritage  
Please Remember Me When God Takes You
Please Guide Me In the Right Way

A Prayer For Strength To Be Yourself

It's hard doing something different.
It's difficult staying yourself.
In a world so accustomed to conformity,
It feels nearly impossible to be unique
As the one He created you to be.
How do we find the strength?
How do we find the courage?
How do we find the bravery?
Where do we defeat fear?
Well, He's hanging on The Cross
Giving life to you and me.
Thank You Jesus!
Let us not forget
With Christ,
Nothing is impossible,
For with God,
All things are possible!
Thank You Father!
Thank You!
We give our lives to You!
We are Yours!
Praise You forever
And forevermore!
In Jesus' Name,
We pray,
Amen!

The Storm

And the storm calls to me in ways you'll never understand
A gentle call that urges my soul forth
The lighting guiding a path for my feet to walk
Between the stones and ash of all that once was
I stand in the echoing silence of the rain 
It drops down upon my skin like the blessing waters of heaven
Soothing me, lifting the weight from my body 
I feel at once as if I am home
Standing amid two dimensions 
Caught between two skies - here and there
The night wraping around me in warmth
The gentle wind lifting me off my feet
Drops from the clouded moon washing away my body
and I am left just a soul, an essence 
The storm calls me forth from beneath my roof
Beckoning me into its depth 
I stand among the reeds in the basin 
They dance and sway as if welcoming me
And I sway with them back 
Caught up in the power that charges the air
That threatens to sweep me away 
If the ground will just loosen its hold
The thunder rumbles a low welcoming growl
And I get pleasently lost within it
I am so small compared to its vastness
I close my eyes and succumb to the skies wishes
Rising higher until my feet no longer touch the ground 
My fingertips touch the liquid color of the stars
A sigh drifts from my lips
There is no need of thought to stay afloat
There is no demand to breathe in air
No crushing weight upon my chest
As my lungs struggle to survive
There are no struggles here
I make my bed on blackened clouds
And give in to the call
The storm has claimed me as its own 
It was such a struggle to stay upon the ground
When the storm would call me home

The Wedding

Sometimes things are up,
And sometimes they are down,
Sometimes black is white, 
And sometimes it is brown.
All the rivers flowing,
Back to the sacred sea,
All the monkeys climbing,
Up the very same tree.
You think you know a lot,
Think you know it all,
But the autumn leaves are falling,
At the north wind's lonely call.
The thinking of the meaning,
The reasons lost and gone,
At last the place is ready, 
A vacant holy throne.
The emptiness that fill you,
Fills you from inside,
Is the treasure you are holding,
The bridegroom's holy bride.
And now the north wind's blowing,
Blowing down the Way,
And now we sit here waiting,
For the bridegroom's wedding day.

Last Kiss

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies 
I want to here with me through the night 
My heart yearns into your soul 
Burning as if newly lit coal 
I bravely submerg the embers 
That the time I have can be spent with you 
And I remember each kiss every moment 
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember 
So what happened was a chance for your love 
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss 
 I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber 
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss 
I lay silient in an umber

Macrocosm Lights

Look deeper inside the universe and you will find it's brilliant mind
Transcranial stimulation directing intelligent design
The Heavens celestial is the body of an eternal dream within it's own
A window into the galaxies where the heart is connected to it's soul
While event horizon reflects a dark side there is still a beauty to behold
Through parallel dimensions and wormholes into eternities of the great unknown
Where there is only the absence of time and space, a beginning without an end
Floating through the Milky Way across a gentle stellar wind
Deep into the macrocosmic silence I close my eyes and disappear 
Awaiting on the other side is the golden thrones of new frontiers 
Unto the nebula of Orions belt you can feel the gift of life
A place one day we'll again call home as we ascend into its light

The face of love

Trying prayer, realising

 it doesn't stop right there.

 You say a prayer and hope

 that its enough, that your

 words of love have reached

 Heaven above. Just stop and

 think how we have asked? Was

 it behind a mask of sorrow and

 shame.Thinking we are not good

 enough to receive a blessed gain.

 We have it all wrong as its what

 Jesus has already done. None are

 worthy its Gods free gift of grace.

 So raise your head, truly open your

 eyes. Look up and realise love does

 have a face, thank you Jesus

Redneck Angel

Redneck Angel
Lyrics By Robert Taylor


A thousand cases of beer
Hangin’ with Jack all night
Sleeping with women from a bar
Not knowin’ their names when I woke

Then I saw your eyes in the dark
Sitting alone in the bar
An Angel from heaven sent
Dressed in Daisy dukes
And red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwards miracle

I walked over and talked to you
Just hoping that you were real
We talked and then we kissed
Spent our time together
Drinking, dancing and talking the night away
How could God have so blessed
A poor assed Redneck boy like me.

I saw you down at the swamp
Wearing plaid, with mud in your hair
You were a redneck angel from heaven
Dressed in Daisy Dukes
And red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwards miracle


Then I gave my heart to you
At the Antioch Baptist Church
Vows given without fear
My love is yours forever
I looked at your eyes through your veil
And you were crying with happiness
You were a Redneck angel from heaven
Dressed in daisy dukes
Red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwards miracle

How could God have so blessed
A poor assed redneck boy like me. 

Hiding but always in plain sight
Drinking, fishing, mud bogging
Things a girl shouldn’t do
How could you be who you are
Sharing my love and my life

How could God have so blessed
A Redneck like me. 

An angel from heaven sent
Dressed in Daisy Dukes
Red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwoods miracle

Mission

Latin mission = sending
Mission is the sending of the Church
Father Christ mandate to all Christians
Proclaim the Gospel in word and deed

So that all men can freely make a decision for Father Christ
But be careful to choose the faith
The effect can be too late or not
Choose wisely which faith is the bridge to heaven

The Message

I'm not the greatest of all-times, but when I'm done, I'll be an all time great in this lifetime of mine Like the late great who came before my time I will breed a new lifeline, that will breathe life like march of dimes My story lines, will bring truth life; like troops who fight Overseas, for rights of those who believe that death is life Now that ain't right! As the rich is getting richer, eating fillet me-non, while we barely feeding our appetite Night after night Survival has waged a war that gave us no choice but to battle and fight Although, we'll be all right They say we a dying breed, but that ain't right Instead we're the light to a lying greed That will enlighten life to a brand new seed A man of God indeed Freed from the Son that bleeds Like the summer breeze He's the sum that equals the amount of air I breathe The air that please A satisfaction like the birds and the bees My word's words are the keys That will fornicate with the mind and give birth to a seed A seed of social change, that'll change our social economy So shall our comradery That will bring comfort to a struggling society A synonym...similar to a civilization seeking for unity Unifying the physics of theory That seeks to explain the synopsis of a dying philosophy Similar to the Cosby X-cept my scrip-tic will speak more about our reality Like life's calamity And everything else in life that's destroying us systematically However, I've discovered a system That can mathematically destroy ignorancy And turn our state of mind intellectually I elect that He (God) selects me to be And be that man who may lead this community So that they (My Peoples) may commute with me En-route to a destination, destine towards our destiny Like we were destine to be We were meant to be "Great" like the late great that came before we. Because we are... The reflection where perfection gave birth to the definition of greatness Where great means Competent, Skilled, Well Informed, and Tremendous Our potentials are endless And only we not even the enemy can put an end to this So it's time we put a stop to this The biggest enemy of self And that's envy and jelousness Cause after this is Heaven or Hell and that's all there is A promised made sealed with a kiss Knowing this Is the next best thing since "In the beginning" In the first chapter of the first verse in Genesis!

Face Of Night

When night face appears:

  Hades erupts with the 
hammer of death,stiring 
the waters.
Lemures dashing forth 
and back preying on 
wandering souls-tell-tale 
odor pervading the 
atmosphere.
Resistance is like chasing 
shadows.
Shackles of bondage 
looming,even the blue-
blooded under chains 
and fetters.
   Howling winds 
harmonize with howls of 
night marmosets- 
creatures of doom.
Splattered blood spread 
like cancer: a norm of the 
day.
Mountains of carcasses 
caressing the sky.
  The world becomes 
scene of blood bath,
carnages mounting, 
screams perforating the 
atmosphere.
   Long ago,a human 
phoenix lived and died-lo 
he lives!
(Carpe diem)! He offers 
hands of goodwill with 
beaming smiles.

Man's Corruption God's Redemption

Man's Corruption...  God's Redemption!

The Bible speaks of man's sin and corruption.
That's why God has offered us, his redemption!

The heart is desperately wicked above all things.
There's an evil corruption that sin brings!

The Lord searches our heart and tests our ways.
He watches our lives, all of our days!

There's nothing good in ourselves.
Not now, or ever!
Without God's mercy...
We're doomed forever!

But, through Christ, there's a way and a plan!
He made this available to every woman and man!

His gift of salvation is a message of love, made clear!
The coming of Jesus Christ,
 draws ever so near!

We can trade our sinful corruption, 
for a new way of living!
Won't you come before the Lord,
with a heart of giving?

Giving our life to Jesus,
 is the best thing to do!
By his power and grace, you can be
made BRAND NEW!

I'm thankful for his salvation! 
 Mercy has been applied!
Because of Christ' death on the cross…
I'm now sanctified!

Bravery

It's not a lesson to be taught
Or a skill to be acquired
It's the nudge to move forward
Open when the time is right
It's the spirit inside
God leading on the way
On the journey to discover
He is all you need
It's the courage to let go
Say yes instead of no
Reveal what you've been holding back
As Jesus takes the wheel
It's the realization that it doesn't matter
What others think of you
God leads you where you're meant to be
Just allow you to be you
It's the standing up to fear
Proclaiming "fear's not gonna win!"
The battle has been fought too long
Time to let the stalemate end
It's the inspiration you've been holding
For others and for yourself
The light we've been dimming
Rather than shining on His behalf
It's the spontaneity in the decision
To follow His call all the way
Discovering peace in being you
Wide open as the perfect creation you are
The world out there is brutal
But there's a Holy Man holding out His Hand
His bravery now is all we have
But His bravery of love is all we need
May God bless you!

The Duchess Of Paradise

She's highly sophisticated and full of undefiled wisdom
Yet a crowned Duchess in a paradise kingdom
Quite a beautiful angel flying with black wings
Covered in gold jewelry and precious things
She dresses like the women of ancient Egyptian class
Her wealth is generous and her money grows like grass
She loves orange scented candles with dark room flame  
She rules thirty legions of soldiers and Bune is her name
Her comely warrior voice can wake and relocate the dead
Her armies of soldiers gather around the cemetery
She is brave and deserves a princessly crown on her head
Her facility of speech and flair for words is legendary
A beautiful queen to be treated with respect and honor
Instead of blasphemy,wanton abuse and fictional horror

'Dianna'

The pain is gone as God now holds her close..
Way to young to go but cancer was her foe..
An angel now in Heaven watching us through
a glassy mirror in peace..
Forever under her sweet sight , her touch and 
warmth is now for God to please..
My sister Dianna who's beauty shined to all who
she came across...
Now lays in heaven surrounded by flowers watching
down on those who still feel her loss...
No more Doctors , no more pain..
When the time has come we all be the same..

DON'T WORRY - YOU'RE COVERED

Copyright © 2013
07/27/2013

Politicians' greed seems to hover
  Over our lives, a simmering cover

Separation of Church and State?
  Satan planned mankind's fate

As in the days of Noah, sin did hover
  Over their land like locusts do cover

The faithful do not fret what is hovering
  By HIS Blood, the Lord is still covering

Our leaders refuse to make a deal
  When enthralled by Satan's Will

Politics, and selfish greed
  Failing our Nation's need

Obama-Care, a change that's fair
  Or, struggling against Satan's lair?

But, ye faithful remember the heavens hover
  Till horns blow clearing clouds that do cover.

Heaven Shower Me

Heaven Shower Me
By Nate Spears

Tell me something good
Email me if you would
Rather than take a minute
Take my heart 
In a second 
If you could.

I’ll go through hell to reach you
Thank God and the heavens
For letting me meet you
God All Mighty
Lord knows I’ve been seeking you

You’ve been a blessing to my soul
Your heart is as good as gold
Where have you been all my life
Me or no one else knows

But you’re here now
 And I will always adore you
The magnitude of a good woman
Will bring sunshine to any mans morning
I’m just blessed to have had 
The Heaven’s Rains
To shower me on you.

Aviated parachute

A short poetry of Parascending by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

                                                Aviated parachute

 Parachute parachute you flying so high.
 Like an eagle you swing in the sky.
 Flourishingly Waving in an air.
 Your skill astonished me, Take me away !

 A play of lustrous rainbow colour.
 Cascaded by a Blushing rain.
 Sensing the rhythm, flower‘s crimsoned.
 Making me feel excited, Take me away !

 Inspiring me as you without wings swiftly aviate.
 Fortunately you have a flying glance at this amazed beauty of the earth.
 Give me one chance some another day.
 Move me away, Take me away !

 People will greet me, when myself Joe will be lime lighting in the sky.
 Viewing the artistic magnifying creativity, beautified by arduous earthborn 
 mortalizing persona‘s.
 my itchy feet, move me away, Take me away !

 screaking high, conveying regards to almighty and pray for celestial peace.
 Ohhh my spice jet please take me high.
 For the god‘s sake make me fly.
 Take me away or else I will die !

 By,
 Madhavi. Suyog. Pagare

Will We Know Him

Will We Know Him?

Will we know Him if He stood in front of us?
If He walked by us on the street?
Will we know Him?
If we have a chance to meet Him in our  lifetime?
In that split second that we meet Him?
Our eyes met for the first time?
Will we know Him?
Yes reading the moment we stood side by side?
Our smiles are very clear
Our heart jumps around
Yes we do know Him?
That look, and that feeling
When we know we've found our home
Yes we do know Him
Yes we know what to say to Him
As we walk away together
Yes we know Him as He knows us His children
We are finally together

The Glass Goddess

All around me
Great cities made of sand.
Green sky scrapers poke through the ground 
To thrive in life’s strict conditions
And melt away with the tide…

Great houses made of cards
Form lines, and tightrope walk existence,
Knowing that any moment, the wrong brick may fall
And buckle our world to its knees
As Mother Earth shouts Jenga! from the sidelines.

So while were here
We dance with the Glass Goddess 
Poised miles above reality,
Leaping over the heavens on our domino stilts-

We floor it in the sky
Living death in the fast lane, 
Seizing the day
Because any moment 
We could disappear 
Into

Granny And Your last glass of water

He starts singing songs of Ireland and we are home in a jiffy
"What's a jiffy," my mother wonders
"Guess  where we went Granny?"
"I don't know but I have a feeling you are gonna tell me," answers my grandmother
"And Don't call me Granny!"
"We went to church so Poppy could ask secret questions."
"The priest gave Poppy a shot and a beer and Poppy sent me next store and he gave me money for  taffy."
"He told me not to tell anyone especially you about the priest cause it's only for the priests ears."
"He said God would take away taffy and I'd never get another goodie and God would strike me dead if I told."
"So I can't tell anyone."
"He did," and she starts yelling and grabs a weapon,"what kind of idiot would be scaring a little child?"
Granny is standing on  Poppy's toes and and asking him questions of where he'd been and getting a sniff of his breath
"So what did you tell  the priest and him giving you consolation and a shot and beer."
"That little rat ," and thinks about the money for candy
Later, Granny is chasing Poppy with that big iron frying pan and poppy running and singing
"In Heaven they have no beer, that's why we drink it here."
"You damn fool I'm gonna bust you in the head, "and throws the pan at his head
And later
Cousin Francis has bill collectors come to the house looking for him
Granny was four foot seven  inches and she starts kicking him in the shin
My Mother grabs his Dick Tracy hat and she jumps on it and flattens it
I ask my mom where I was when this happened and she pauses
" You were in Heaven Patrick waiting with your brother!"
The truancy officers bang on the door and want to know where Uncle Charles is
Granny shrugs and says, "He is upstairs and the sound of the window going up sounds
They all run upstairs and see Uncle sliding down the tree and running as fast as his
seven year legs can move
He comes home later that evening holding a goose under his arm
And Poppy has a soft-boiled goose egg for breakfast every morning
I ask Uncle what happened to that goose and He said,"one day he came home  and
they had chicken for dinner."
And Poppy was gone to heaven to get me and my brother ready Mom says
And Granny sits my brother and me on her lap and says,"you two knuckleheads listen up."
"This is very important so don't forget it."
"Treat people the way you want to be treated, because you never know who is going to hand you your last glass of water"

REINCARNATION

REINCARNATION

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
“I am certain that I have been here as I am now a thousand times before and
 I hope to return a thousand times after.” GOETHE 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
1.

Each soul an ambassador was and is of God’s will and grace
A ray of divinity, a guardian of the Holy Law 
Each with a specific mission: to learn or rather to remember
How to find the way of return throughout space and time
And with the divine, again, to be seen in perfect equilibrium

2.

The day I was born, as every man alive,
I found my immortal self bound to the wheel of time 
That around eternity’s circumference took me, in very heavy chains
Asking to follow obediently the unswerving path of fate;
This endless trip of return where the only constant thing is change

3.

Since then I have died once and many times after
But death's dark palaces to hold me were unable
As my soul’s perpetual desire to follow my way
Brought me back to this ephemeral world of fleeting dreams
With a new body, new hopes, new goals but always with the same desire

4.

Thus I journeyed back and forth the plains of oblivion
Choosing the best conditions I could, according to my karma
Trying to find endlessly the golden middle way 
That unmistakably between the extremes is only to be found
But since from the river of forgetfulness each time I was drinking 
I was obliged, unfortunately, to start over again

5.

So, I was born once a king and another was born a beggar
And in turns I was born a coward, a hero, a holy man, a vicious man,
A  Christian, a Muslim, an atheist, an idolater a black man and a woman
And healthy and sick I was born and intelligent and witless

6.

And was born to love so much the things I once detested
And to hate passionately the things I once held dear
And was born only to laugh and another just to cry
So, I drunk successively from the cups of joy and of sorrow
And was born to make friends out of my enemies 
And enemies out of my brothers
And was born to realize the impossible dreams and fail the very easy  
And I was born to slay and to be slain alternatively for thousands of years

7.

Thus I lived continuously the extremes of both good and evil
Striving to find endlessly the balance in my soul
Through the wisdom that was endowed upon me by the Great Spirit
Who like a beacon, luminous, to guide me waits
To my supreme destiny that GOD for me has traced

8.

So, as was passing from life unto death, from darkness unto light
With a speed determined by me, I don’t put on GOD the blame,
All my lessons have I learned through trial and error
Up to the very last reincarnation, in body’s mortal temple

9.

Now free, AT LAST, from all earthly desires and every karmic blame
Radiating with holiness and glowing with grace 
My immortal soul, HER divine wings unfolds and soars upwards the heavens
White light blazing in perfect equilibrium 
And pure now to her glorious creator returns and with HIM UNITES!

My Sins

My Sins – Zamreen Zarook

Oh God you are so gracious,
Am a guy who have done since in capacious,
At times I have being as a carnivorous,
But it charged ages to identify as dangerous.

Since are being committed behind the screen,
Even it started at my thirteen,
Mirrors used to say that I am evergreen,
Whereas my since were always unseen.

In enormous number I have executed,
But for every count, high privacy was aborted,
Simply because of your blessings we are bracketed,
If not, we are already being quoted.

Oh God, I understood your kindness,
Here after I won’t commit since in others absence,
However much chances I get to access,
I will always have heaven as my address.

God Almighty

When I came to you I was broken and frail~Half my mind gone in despair

 Feeling so Low~Like mud on the ground~Wondering if my Joy would ever

 be found~Fighting and resisting at the very Start~then slowly you entered my heart

 Quietly and gently working insid my soul knowing just what you were doing to help me glow

You broke into my soul where I had been suffering the most you cleansed me

and entered me showing me what I needed to see, working endlessley on my soul

you cleansed me and made me once again whole. God almighty you never cease to

amaze me always by my side even when I'm at my worst, loving me endleslly and uncondionally..

You have opened my heart to the beauty again, the beauty of the clouds the beauty of your creations'

The beauty of the rain, the beauty of the thunder, the beauty most of all of your people.

Opened and vunerable I am to you always. Enter me and have me do your will in my life

help me to always follow you in every aspect of my mind, body, and soul with every ounce of me

Silently by my side help guide me in my ways so I do your ways and your will dear god almighty

Walking together down this journey in life nothing can go wrong with you by my side

Hold me and love me in this I pray guide me down the right roads along my way

I want you by my side for the rest of my life, no more going alone on this journey

I need you Lord God ALmighty to guide me ,Love me. and Hold me through my good and bad times..!

Porn No More

I've watched the war from behind closed doors;
Eyes too glued to close.
And now knowing what's in store, there's porn no more.
God's love is the only hope we know.
We are forgiven because of the love that is Jesus.
We are saved because of the love that is Jesus.
We give our lives to the Father for we are His children and He loves us.
We are loved!
No matter what we've done, we are loved!
Confess and ask for forgiveness;
This is such a beautiful gift!

I'm a Muslim I'm not a Terrorist

I am a Muslim, I’m not a “terrorist”.
How can I be a terrorist
when I’m against all kinds of injustice.

I’m against every act of sin and evil.
I hate all kinds of crime and even loathe
what Adolf did to the innocent Jewish people.

I hate what God hates; He (Allah) hates oppression.
I’m against stealing, against taking away
people’s loved ones and belongings for no reason.

I’m against suicide bombings,
against racism, against ignorance,
against self-harm and even derision.

What God hates I hate and God (Allah) hates
oppression. I hate it too when people fight
for foolish nationalistic reasons.

I’m a Muslim; I follow the true religion
of mercy from Allah the Most Merciful
Who simply wants us to answer His Call
to believe in Just One -Just One God of all.

So don’t call me a “terrorist” when I clearly
don’t have a ‘mass destruction’ weapon
and my goal in life is to
be with our God (Allah) in Heaven.

Grace is the face… That God will place.. In life’s poetic race… Vow grace, a place.. In earthen poetic pace We each will place… Of poetic grace… At the end of life’s race Assurance of Agape’s face Esteems us all as first place The precept of life is the face of God from which the old heaven and earth will flee away, as a new heaven and earth is revealed; also, our new perception. Old things are passed away “Behold, all things become new.” As carnal minds are also renewed. (Rev. 20:11 & Rev. 21:1) (II Corinthians 5:17) (Romans 12:2) KJV

My Heart Sings

As the first rays of sunshine
wakes me out of my sleepy slumber,
I sat up in bed and looked at my hands.
The taste of stale cigarette smoke of cheap red wine
stained my taste buds.
I walked out of bed,
turned on the radio
(to the classical station)
and my heart beats to the tune
my life and soul smile as the sun shines in my room.
I hear God whispering in my ear
I hear all the words of the world
talking to me,
and I can hear my heart sing a little.
I read my poetry,
get dressed go for a walk,
I smile at the faces that I pass;
The cars I pass,
the houses,
the trees,
the dry lawns,
burnt and that have not been watered in days.
I smile at them and they all smile back,
and my heart sings a little,
and I dance to its simple tune.

My heart sings and I dance too:
slowly melodies,
fast jigs,
rapid jazz and swing music
and waltzes to the chopin masterpieces,
and the romantic stories, novels, the poems,
that fancy your mind with its ryhme schemes,
and after I read such romantic beauty
I smile, and I listen closely to my heart,
and with every beat,
it lets out a verse or two, from a familiar song
that caught my ear on the radio,
and my heart sings
and I smile,
and the world smiles back.

Feeling such beauty
love and romance
it is such a good feeling to live with;
and as the night rolls on,
and the sun goes away
I sit at my desk
writing poetry,
with a cigarette slowly burning away with time,
and I am stuck,
getting drunk of red wine,
I sit back in my chair,
and listen to my heart,
and he sings alittle
and I can write again.
So, there we sit together,
writing poetry,
smoking cigarettes,
drinking wine
to the strike of nine
and we both sing songs of love and romance
together forever.

I can only tell you through the eyes of a 5yr old child .
That child being myself 

so let me rewind a bit in time .
It was preschool to 1st grade , I would fall into a vegetable state at school , with my head down on the desk .
My Mother was a very talented RN and worked in triage at St. Francis Hospital
She would take me to the best of Pediatrics , only to be told ," take her home give her a aspirin,  if fever gets to high , and call us in the morning . 

All I can remember is this.

I was laying on my Mothers bed as from the ceiling it appeared a man that resembled "Jesus Christ ' and his Angels , 6 on each side lifted me from the bed in his arms , and took me to a place of warmth , light and love like I have never felt before since.

I was held by him as he said , you can stay here and no longer feel pain , or you may go back. I wanted so badly to stay , but I thought of my Mothers tears , and I was sent right into my little body again only to miss that feeling I had my whole life "in His Arms "

I got up out of bed , walked to the living room , where I saw my Mother in the distance baking .'  The Grinch whom stole Christmas ' was on TV. I then noticed a tree all lighten up with decorations, I walked  towards my Mom with a blanket in my hand .

My Mom turned and she had a plate of cookies , her face white as a ghost . I asked her " Mommy , Is it Christmas ?  " she started to cry , and held me as she said " Yes Honey , it is , it is Christmas Eve. " as her tears hit my shoulder . I then asked " Why are you crying ? "  Santa Claus is coming ! " I replied,  as happy as a little 5 yr. old could be.

I was taken to a Chiropractor that week ,as a last result , He told her it was simply a miracle I was alive  .  My Spine was out of place and no Oxygen was going to my brain , in one or 2 days , I would be brain dead.

I found out later in my life at 18 yrs. old , it was shaken baby syndrome . My Father confessed to me as he to cried , at his Moms home at Christmas time . He had carried the guilt with him for years . He was a born again Christian , and a new life he had wanted with true forgiveness .

I forgave him , I know the man whom lifted me was Jesus Christ that night , and there is nothing ugly at all there , so I know he to forgave him . 
Since then ..I have never doubted , I know he goes by many names  , It is Jesus Christ all the same .

The Letter

   ...

The Letter

A letter fell from heaven and it landed at my door.
The letter had a message - Cry for me no more.
As I was reading the message, I knew it came
from you.

Where do the souls of our love ones go when they
leave this world? We cry, we suffer and our hearts
are broken, because we won't see them anymore.

The days pass and the months, soon turn into years.
Little by little the pain becomes less. But we still ask 
ourselves - where do the souls go?

The souls go to their destiny. God has a special place
for them. We want to think that everything ends here-
that one day we just go to sleep and we wake up
in a beautiful place called heaven.

I know now that you are in heaven and that you also
watch over me. One day when God calls me - we will 
reunite again. You say that you are happy, that you
feel no more pain.

You tell me not to worry, to go on with my life. This is
just what I will do and whenever I feel sad - I will open
up the letter and read the message again. It is time to
say - good bye dear - I have a smile on my face, because
now I know that you are in a very special place...

Beyond The Distance And The Days

Our love grows stronger,
Even beyond the distance,

In God together we're together forever

It's Just One Word

 Am I the only one who's feeling there is something very wrong with all of this ,
I can't seem to get anybody to listen not even when I raise  my fist.
    How can they not see what I see ,has everybody lost thier mind I say,
Why can't they see what it is that is making them act this way.
   Have you taken a look around to see  there's something that has changed,
When you look into peoples eyes Lord how you can see the rage.
   No compassion  for thier fellow man as if they have never ever cared,
For the future of mankind and how we all should be  aware.
    Saw a friend of mine the other day he was acting a little strange ,
I can't help but wonder just when , how , and who's the blame.
   This power and greed is consuming us all we just can't seem to stop
Stepping on our brothers & sisters as we  race to the top.
   Where's the love ,the kindness ,the hope and faith  we use to live by,
How we allowed ourselves to sink so low I' will never know why.
    Still I will contunue to spread the word which has always been,
Be good and love one another as you are learning not to sin.
    Please don't be another wreck that has been pushed to the side ,
If you' listen to the one and only word you will know why.
    We will all band together so we can stand  tall and free,
It is one simple word and that is love how could you nor see.

Beyond the Frontier

Where am I? Why is it dark?
This isn’t what I had in mind when I left the park…
Why isn’t the wind whispering…the songbirds singing?
All I remember is a telephone ringing…
A scream and a crash and a pain in my side…
Is this what happens after one’s died?
I don’t feel like myself, I feel wild and free,
Yet I’m cold and alone, 'stead of filled with glee.

My whole life I’ve studied, and pondered, and prayed,
Trying to fathom what would happen this day
But now that it’s here, I’m beginning to fear
Maybe the afterlife’s not what it appears…
It’s certainly not what I’ve been told by my preacher
Or my parents or brother or best friend or teacher…
Is it a bad thing, or is it good?
Maybe it’s just not quite understood...

While I was on Earth, I just couldn’t wait
To meet good St. Peter at the heavenly gate
And ask him a question or query or two
“What was my purpose?” “What good did I do?”
“What’s it all for?” “How does it all flow?”
“Can I have one more body, one more try, one more go?”
But where is the angel? Where is the gate? And
If this is Hell, then where is Ol’ Satan?
Am I a lost soul? Am I forgotten?
Am I to be left here until I am rotten?

Lo and behold! what, now, can this be?
Is this a wonderful spiritual epiphany?
Is this the magical feeling all souls receive
When they leave Earth? Oh! was I that naïve?
How could I have not seen the realism?
Why was I consumed in man-made idealism?
This is more wondrous than all I was taught
Oh, all the times I argued and fought
With others, ‘bout how their views were asinine
Now I see, theirs were just as wrong as mine!
Little I thought was actually correct!
How, why, did I let others petty beliefs infect
My untouched, my pure, my virgin mind?
I regret all the hours I self-tortured to find
That compared to what I see now, I was empty and blind…

Wait - - What is this that I see?
What is this gateway that is revealed unto me?

Now a door is opened to my immortal soul
I am expected now to enter my life’s final goal…
I am scared, intimidated, but still I am glad…
For the truth I have just seen is anything but bad.
This is the end of my journey, I’ve nothing to fear,
For now I am going Beyond the Frontier.

A Wonderful Place

" A Wonderful Place "

Heaven is A Wonderful Place as we have all been told
the streets and sidewalks all are made of jewels and of gold
his real truth and wisdom are precious and abound
eternity with our God in Heaven is where it all is found.

God's word is quick and heartfelt and is always sure
having all the graceful power to make our lives so pure
by God's precious spirit his faithful words are swung
taking all of our sins away so sin will all be done.

The sick and blind with the lame all healed
God's love and warmth is all he wields
he has the power to make one whole
his truth and love will heal your soul.

Have faith and belief in God's mighty word
his calling voice by all is heard
its true through him that you will find
a warm heart of love and peace of mind.

Heaven is A Wonderful Place as we have all been told
the streets and sidewalks all are made of jewels and of gold
his real truth and wisdom are precious and aound
eternity with our God in Heaven is where it all is found...

Brush it off, my child;
Come and take my hand.

And I always will be.

Armageddon

Flames roared through the nights sky. 
A glimpse of blue still protruded through the flames. 
The heat warmed the mortals below. 
They believed that this was a great night. 
The sky emulated a beautiful red color. 
The color was extraordinary with remnants of blue. 
They believed that they were all safe. 
They were not nearly as safe. 
They were witnessing Armageddon. 
The war between good and evil. 
For no one is safe until judgment day. 
That is the day when the sky will forever remain blue. 
The birds will sing a tune. 
The flowers will bloom. 
That will be the day. 
The day when we will all be ok.

What Will I Do Where Will I Go

 UNSUPPORTED CODE What Will I Do?   Where Will I Go?

What will I do?  Where will I go?
Which direction I’ll take…  I don’t really know!

In just a moment, I lost all,  that I worked hard to get…
I’m thinking of “letting go.”  
But haven’t done it yet…

The things I held so close...  Have all disappeared.
It happened so fast.  It’s kind of “weird.”

Those I call my friends, don’t really know
 what to say.
Most of them shake their heads, and walk away!

I’ve cried myself to sleep many days and nights.
It’s like someone has “turned off the lights.”

The only one I know, that I can turn to, is Christ alone!
I need him to heal my broken heart and home.

Dear Jesus, will you take some time to help me out?
I know that helping people is what you’re about!

Please help me to pick up the 
pieces that are scattered!
Help me to focus on the things in life
 that really matter!

I need to give you, all of my focus and attention!
I need your word to show me
 some clear direction!

You’re the one that I always need to hold on to!
I need to do this, and to completely trust you!

Thank you Jesus for listening
 and answering my prayer!
I’m thankful that you’re someone who really cares!

Thank you for restoring my life,
 that has been “up-ended.”
With your love, my heart has been
 healed and mended!

EMPOWERING INNOCENCE

written 21st June 2013


A 'single'.. rose grows with purity, into a field, en-fenced
 from that 'moment' it buds, watch...as its passion, and grace.. intertwine
It begins to bloom, with such confidence
 showing off.. its elegance, with 'complete' dominance
For you are left... 'totally' unaware of an, 'entire' field of daisies, swaying.... such poetry
 such passion, and grace.. still exists in the heart, of humanity
The worlds future... 'completely' relies on 'peace' to become heard
 but how far has...man let it go, our hearts hold hope, for the same entity
Peace, love and harmony
 for those "who" choose to believe
Jesus freed, the curse we received by 'Adam' and 'Eve'
 they have found, love and peace
Taking it upon themselves, they help... the next man, to be 'free'
 within God's own time, we 'will' see, heaven on earth
For it is 'still' a gift... we all receive, at the hour of our birth

'Which is better--To love or not to love--'

Which is better? To love or not to love
(a woman)? To love--and love well--is good
so long they who love love without falsehood
and count the other as their heart's pet dove.
To befriend (her) is better; never shove
a lady-friend into a lover, should 
her virtuous friendship and womanhood 
belie an injury that rob her love. 
However, to love God is best. Not I,
but the claims of this life--O Destiny!--
make it so that men like us must decry
love, and sin, for a life of poverty.
     Although, if God wills it, love will find me
     in heaven's field,--in heaven's golden lea!

And the grace of His Father's love
Am I able to be set free.

We Are All In This Together

We all have a story to tell.
Ups and downs,
Together, we've been through it all;
God has led us through it all.
Trust Him;
It's all for a reason.
All your pains,
All your struggles,
All your hurts-
They're all for a reason.
God has a bigger plan,
One we cannot see.
Trust Him and pray.
Remember,
We are all in this together.
Together, we have been through it all.
Ups and downs,
We are family-
Brothers and sisters in Christ.
We are friends.
Most importantly,
We are family.
Let's love one another like God loves us.
Let's help each other out
And help each other up with loving hands.
We are His children.
We are His servants
Together on His mission
To love, save, and change the world
For the better.
We are all in this together.
Listen to His praises ring;
Let's praise Him together.

"Sometimes you gotta lose to win again."

The road to Hell

The road to Hell

I was reading through the soup today
And someone he did say
That desires are divine
If he believes this, that’s okay!
He wrote about a poem he’d read
That was labelled ‘Finding God’
I thought about this for a while
And I found it was quite odd.

The road to god the mystics say
Is a road free from desire
Desires they burn one deep within
As they create Hells fire
When one desire it be fulfilled
Oh, never will it last
For then will come another one
Desire is very vast.

All the evil in this world 
Were caused by some desire
They go round, and round, and round
Oh yes they be hells fire
Without them one might well find Heaven
Yet with them life is hell
All those who’d tread the path to God
Then they must know this well.

Listen

Listen to the buzzing, in your ears,
Listen to the humming, of your fears,
Listen to the baby, crying inside,
Listen to the pleading, in your lover's eyes.
Listen to the music, you have never played,
Listen to the sinner, who's never been saved.
Listen to the empty, silence of your mind,
Listen to the whispers, of man kind.
Listen to the never, heard nor seen,
Listen to the listener, who has never been.
Listen to the monkey, you know you really are,
Listen to the wise man, who's never been that far.
Listen to the dying, crying man,
Listen to the bottle, buried in the sand.
Listen to meaning, you never really meant,
Listen to the letter, you never really sent.
Listen to the lovers, who loved another one,
Listen to the brothers, torturing their mum.
Listen to the noisy, who never say a thing,
Listen to the silent, crying deep within.
Listen to the never, ever really said,
Listen to the dead man, laying in his bed.
Listen to the flying, dying man,
Listen to the solid, only made of sand,
Listen to the night time, they told you that was day,
Listen to the meaning, they stole an took away.
Listen to the singer, who never made a sound,
Listen to the thunder, in the lightning cloud.
Listen to the voices, you never hear within,
Listen to the last train's whistle, whistling.

Crown of Thorns

Crown of Thorns
A trace of thorns you are on my body, I am an eternal traveller, never stopping. You are the bitter predicament of my comfort, Traces of sensual pleasures - The mist of a veil is my constant reminder. You wound the stubble of my heartly thorns, I stand alone on the dusty conflagration Gazing towards an endless void, I am bridled with the burning pain of the thorns... My gaze tirelessly roves, Prickly are the thorns, With malediction entwined... I am drowning in a sweaty torrent, I am plunging into thorny depths, bloody and overworked from the struggle, I yield myself to the decision of fate.

Perfectly you

You say you aren't perfect,
but look again and behold yourself; perfectly you.
Your tears be heavy-laden with guilt;
also remember, they glisten with remorse.
The sea water of the eye cleanses wounds old
and leads life to the good vulnerability
that teaches humility and belief.

Singing; your voice awakens the dawn
and dancing you set the moon.
Entrancing, you smile
and for a moment I glimpse forever.
Joy's child is your way
and grace is in your name.

Awake in the watches of the night
He watches your panic weeping;
wanting your day to soar 
and set twilight leaping.
Stars twinkle in sympathy,
and meteors lead sight to the other.
Come away with me my love and wink at suns.

Gift Of Mortality

An earthly existence
A universe beyond my minds, comprehension
I die
I rise
Life lessons reviewed
Homeward bound
I am not lost, after all!
I am a willing participant
Serving, the Father, of all creation
His son combined, ‘producing life’ as we know it
Representing them, in everything I do
I am nothing, without Love!
My heart full of faith, loyal service I give
Learning how to unconditionally serve, as the Father unconditionally, loves me
Worshipping our Divine Creator’s existence
Choosing to live, moment to moment
Being as one with ‘Our Universal Father’
No physical permanency
My physicality, disappearing
My mortality existence, I let go of
Death temporary
My spirit alive!
Relief, Peace
‘I am only passing through!’
A unique, experience of mortality 
A gift, I am blessed to experience, to live!

The invisiable wisdom of God

The invisible wisdom of God......... Do we know the truth of heaven and our God's love? Do we understand the knowledge of invisible wisdom of God? We must understand that God's wisdom rests on the foundation of spiritual practice of compassion and love Learning spiritual power and prayers could make us to realize the truth of heaven and God's love We all born with God's love and care at the beginning and the problem arises how to remain till our end Our spiritual journey starts with understanding on God's trust and continue with perception of God's precepts till the end The spiritual perfection could be achieved not only by meditation but also teaching others to reach the knowledge of wisdom That is why God appointed wisdom as his goal for mankind God loves his people and enjoy their knowledge in wisdom and he feels proud of his rational creation on earth Our choice is live with the wisdom to delight in God or choose path of that leads to miserable life on earth.

OPENED EYES

written 28th sept 2007



It's time to turn this around
 the answers I have finally found
The minute I looked into your eyes
 I immediately remembered, how to be alive

If I didnt go through, all those years of pain
 my life wouldn't be the same
Your birth, nothing less than magical, complete power of God's love....
 
For you shone through complete demonic darkness
ever since, I have been more than blessed
 you re-opened my heart
So I could again, play the part
 
I've been given a second chance
This time round, I wont forget to dance
 to love, open and freely
Its finally great to again be me

 I've turned my frown upside down
And it's from God's gift, when pure innocence was born
 my sixth child, a blessed tiny little girl

ACCEPCT ME IN MY UPS AND DOWNS,
I NEED SOMEONE TO SHARE,
JUST TO HOLD MY HAND AND LET ME CRY,
AND SAY, MY FRIEND I REALLY DO CARE
Mom you mean the world to me
It’s hard to live without you ,You were always by my side
Through thick and thin you helped me

Jesus Paid the Sacrifice

Jesus Paid The Sacrifice! Jesus sacrificed his life for you and me! So we can be with him for all eternity! His life for ours… a ransom was paid IN FULL, This is why I I love HIM so! Upon his head were placed the crown of thorns, Enduring so much shame and scorn. The blood from his body as it began to flow! The pain inside his body, Began to grow! The nails placed in his feet and hands, The pain he went through is hard to understand. His life for ours, is what he gave! His life for ours… Is what he did trade! By Jim Pemberton

DIVINE INTERVENTION - THE ROSE

Dear Dad…I plucked a crimson rose that lay
Upon your grave, as icy rain fell down
And joined my warm, wet tears that winter day.
Unto my heart I pressed it close to drown
My mournful thoughts and feelings deep inside.
And then I numbly made my way back home
To grieve and heal with loved ones by my side.
But soon they left, and I was all alone.

That night I placed the crimson rose within
A random place inside a book of prose
And it pressed flat for quite some time therein.
One day I opened it to find I chose
The place that God directed me to lay
The rose in answer to my prayers of where
You were in death so that my heart could say
That everlasting life was yours to share.

What I had hoped I know for sure is true  
For words upon the page where that rose slept—
"The Grave," by Robert Blair—bodes life anew…
In God’s eternal life our souls are kept.
My keepsake rested in a book of prose
God’s intervention was my only guide.
Mid secret pages dried your crimson rose—
God’s answer to my prayer…with thanks, I cried.

look into the skies

Is it that the world is so cold you must be alone
Could it be a sign on the road
Yield to self-control 
And if I wanted a kiss
Would you put me on a little black list
As the sun sets in a valley of rust
Is this the end of us?

All the rivers overflow and the deserts are cold
This piece of heaven so sacred and pure
Look into the skies it's yours

The twisted piece of the puzzle fits
My last good trip
The passion to broad to explore
Help me open my doors

And if the people you once dismissed
Try to sell you some bliss
I am one cause God said so
Don't put me in a righteous role

All the rivers overflow
And the deserts are cold 
This piece of heaven so sacred and pure
Look into the skies it's yours

Dead On My Own, Alive In Him

Faith is not failing me,
I am failing Him.
Why do I refuse to accept His grace?
Why would I rather live my life on my own
When He is extending a helping a hand?
I am depressed,
Dead on my own,
But I am alive in Him!
I give my life to Him for real;
I give Him my all,
And now I'm alive
Because He gives me life!

Sometimes

Sometimes there is silence,
Sometimes there are words,
Sometimes there is meaning,
Sometimes it's absurd.
Sometimes you are near me,
Sometimes you are far,
Sometimes there is darkness,
Sometimes guided by a star.
Sometimes we are up and 
Sometimes we are down,
Sometimes we are slaves,
That wear a holy crown.
Sometimes we are arrogant,
Sometimes we are proud,
Sometimes we are someone,
Lost in the faceless crowd.
Sometimes we are rich and 
Sometimes we are poor,
Sometimes we are angels,
Scratching at the door.
Sometimes I'm living and 
Sometimes I am dead,
Sometimes there is no thoughts
Turning in my head.
Sometimes looking forwards,
Sometimes looking back,
The circle still unbroken,
The train still on the track.
Sometimes we are caught and
Sometimes we are free,
But we always come back praying,
Under this olive tree.

'I dream of you in your world far from here'

I dream of you in your world far from here.
To not be there, it cuts like broken glass.
I'd end this pain, my love, had I the brass
to quench my need for you to be so near.
Without you here, I wilt in this austere,
comfortless zone of uncreative mass,
stifled, crushed by the unyielding impasse
of knowing I may never enter your sphere.
Were I a wind--a breeze! a zephyr!--I'd
ride the heavens till I light on your lap
and then there with you forever abide
as if betwixt us there were ne'er a gap.
     I swear; for us,  I'd move heaven and God
     as sure as men do plod...do plod...do plod!

HEAVEN LOOKS SO DIM

Jesus came to my town today
who does he think he is?
I didn't like what he had to say
or all of this miracles showbiz

But what really made me mad
saying good works is not enough
My tithes didn't make Him glad   
weren't up to His perfect snuff?

Too much talk about grace
and the need for me to repent
I gave a dirty look to His face
then I turned around and went

That night He was arrested
going to nail Him to a cross
His sins must be very infested
His life will soon be lost

What is all of this to me
surely Im better than Him
He should have let people be
now Heaven looks so dim!


 *Religion blinds so that even the Son cannot be seen.. His judgement will be his fate!

The Name Above Every Name

The Name Above Every Name “ 9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil 2:9-11 NIV Christ took the nature of a servant And was created in human likeness. He humbled himself before all; His obedience provided our righteousness. God exalted His humble Son And gave Him The Name Above Every Name. At this name every knee will bow, In heaven and on earth His praise proclaim. Every tongue will confess That Jesus Christ is Lord of all. He glorified the Father above And harkened death’s necessary call. He made us children of God; Changed from slaves to heirs instead. The Name Above Every Name— The lamb of sacrifice to wed. The Name Above Every Name Is upon the lips of His faithful servants, Not through force but love alone; The Holy Spirit's implants. We should be so grateful, That Christ died for us to be saved; That He rose again from death’s pit; Eternity on our hearts engraved. The Name Above Every Name Is to be glorified for all time. Let’s worship Christ and give him thanks, For His love so heavenly divine. Let us shine like stars in the evening sky, So that all who look up will see, The Name Above Every Name, To be worshiped for eternity!

What Do We Expect As We Seek to Remove God

What Do We Expect, As We Seek to Remove God? As so many people are seeking God’s removal… It’s like anything from him, we’ve given a refusal! Many have tried to ban just the reading of his word! There’s so much truth, just waiting to be heard! Many anti-God societies have quickly formed! Even the ten commandments, are often scorned! We’ve built large cities, many schools, and homes! But when it comes to God, we’ve often left him alone! One can try their best to push God back in the corner! But if you do, things in your life will get “warmer!” The pleasures and truth you seek, will come to an end! And then eternity without God, will just begin! You’ll wish you chose to live for God, that eventful day! You’ll wish that you took the time to study and pray! It’s the word of God that you need to study and read! God knows all about you! And knows your needs! He deserves all of your praise and full attention! We need to seek him, for much needed direction! Please come dear Lord, and cleanse us within! May we humbly confess our faults and sins! We need YOU much more, than words can say! Please be the God we serve! May we start TODAY! By Jim Pemberton

I don't need five-star meals,

I'm smiling here so wide;
I feel like I'm brand new.

'Cause all I need is You.

My soul is eternally fulfilled;
My heart is being led through.
I don't need anything else,

I Rejoice In Knowing God

I Rejoice In Knowing God!

I will cry out to God with my voice!
I take safety in him and rejoice!
I shall seek him in the day of trouble!
He’ll pick me up, when I stumble!
I know that he listens, and is always there!
I shall seek each day, alone in prayer!
I shall remember the Lord’s faithful deeds!
He gives me strength, and meets my needs!
I meditate on his words, and wonders performed!
He picks me up, when I feel defeated and scorned!
He is God and shines with an awesome brightness!
He brings everlasting love, peace and kindness!
Behold!  He is God!  His power is demonstrated!
His beauty among the heavens, has been demonstrated!
He is God!  And shall forever reign supreme!
He is my God!  My righteousness and everything!

Prime Mover

Like the seraphs whose wings unfold,
Christ's light and glory goes not untold;
as the love of his humble grace
moves inside me all time and space,

as the planets orbit heaven's sun
and encircle it one by one--
so, too, am I caught in his sway,
beloved of him from day to day.

Through hosts of astral dimension
God's angels fix their attention
with expectancy and burning pause
amidst the universe's First Cause.

He, the one true Incarnation  
that begets cosmic causation,
resolves the Infinite Regress
from the pre-Socratics' egress

with his omniscient wisdom
and the archives of his kingdom
where all can come and read and know
what miracles he'll yet bestow.

Killed with anguish very slow. A special place in heaven for all those special people of Japan.

Soundless Sleep

Will my rest in heaven be a soundless sleep?
Will God accept me and want to keep?

Will my kingdom of glory have a warm soothing touch?
Will my body be cold, my spirit be hushed?

Will my rest in heaven be a soundless sleep?
Wil God accept me and want to keep?

Will Jesus be crying,begging for my salvation?
Will my heart have scorn and reject His invitation?

Will I enter gates of paradise onto God`s throne?
Wil I turn away shamefully and die alone?

Will my rest in heaven be a soundless sleep?
Will God accept me and want to keep?

Will I repent and cleanse my sinful being?
Will I continue to flee from "Gods presence" not seeing?

My God and savior awaits my final toll,
His patience caresses my newly saved soul.

My rest in heaven will not be a sound sleep.
My God will awake me.
My soul He shall keep.

Sun and Moon

God is perfect in all things he creates
shining his love from the very first day
The sun and the moon he set up high 
they pour light to be our guide
Gods light he puts in my heart 
without him I wouldn't feel whole
When he returns all see his face gleam bright 
coming to carry us to our home on high
I can only imagine what heaven will be
the glorious colors, lights, and souls to meet
Sun and moon no more needed
The Almighty and Jesus Christ is the glow that will be

The Silk Demon

These people make me sick 
These false prophets
These religious money pits 
These well dressed demons of deception 
Nothing but
Con artists
Liars 
Purveyors of pure sacrilege
Pretending to offer you salvation 
Offering you the comfort of the lord 
For a price 
Selling you a seat in heaven 
The more you pay the better your accommodations
Religious travel agents
Without their blessing 
You’re doomed to be left behind 
You wont get into heaven 
Without your donation 

I myself believe in religion 
Support all religions 
They may be different in their views and customs 
But the end goal is all the same 
Eternal peace 

But these people are different 
They to, 
Want peace… 
Your piece 
My piece 
And anyone else’s piece they can get 
Their goal is simple 

Fleece the flock 
Sell them promise 
Sell them an eternal ticket 
Guarantee them eternal bliss 
For a price 

Sell them anointed hankies
And blessed books 
Promise them wonderful lives
With their religious looks 

They are the one-armed bandits of the new age 
With a bible in one hand and a credit card machine in the other 

We take Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover  
But no checks please 
We need your “prayer” right now 
Not in 7-10 days 

These people make me sick 
There are so many of them 
Saying they represent God 

Flashing 800 numbers 
Requesting your “prayers” 
Which will only be “answered” 
As long as credit card is valid 

Are people that dumb?
I mean really that naïve?
Do they really believe? 
The cheap suits 
Silk ties 
And piss poor acting of sincerity and caring
Do they not see the obvious? 
Are they truly blind? 
Do they want to be spiritually slaughtered? 

Do they not remember the one very important rule?

You never have to pay to pray!

All God has ever asked of anyone is their faith 
Time, is your most valuable asset
It is what you have the least of in life 

And this is what you pay to God 
Your time devoted to him and your faith in him 

Wake up, before it’s to late 
You don’t have much time left 
Spend it wisely 
Spend it on God

We All Soar

" We All Soar "

Through time we all journey and space We All Soar
we can have our desire and everything more.

God’s heaven awaits us with his eternity gift
from earth up to heaven our life’s will all shift.

This is the most beautiful place where the universe ends
amid all of God’s glory where our real love begins.

We will have no expectations and be rid of regret
for here in this moment all our needs have been met.

Our earthly possessions are all laid to the side
they will have no place here where God does not hide.

Surrounded by shining stars our love at last blooms
as the birth of the planets gave life to the moons.

Through space we all journey and time We All Soar
with God in his heaven its him we adore…

The Line Between

O God, the pangs are crushing body, soul
And spirit—working deaths where sunlight fades— 
My arms are trunks of pain and taking toll, 
While tortures, stings, and sickness hauntly raids
To close the Gates of Hell to shut me in,
And heaven bows to greet while Hades seeks
To send The Reaper with his failing grin.
And illness ruins lives while havoc wreaks
The squalored throes of daily living on—
While body wastes away and breath remains
To sing your dirge while I still carry on…
Like trampling cattle trodding broken frame,
I live between the sunshine and the grave—
Like flowers cut and dying in the vase

Upper Hand

Free will and choice, we think we know,
the high road calls our name.
But man's destruction arises low
in a part we just can't tame.

And evil's there, in quiet repose,
we rap it's hollow door.
And here we sit for what we chose
as they tally the final score.

Of all the battles we fought within,
none matter but the last.
An epic struggle set to begin
from which our destiny is cast.

In the afterlife of death's staid pale,
too late to take a stand,
will eternity be in heaven or hell?
We must await the upper hand.

Christ Stepped Down From His Heavenly Throne

Christ Stepped Down From His Heavenly Throne! Christ stepped down, from his heavenly throne. He came to earth… For 33 years, he called it his home! His mission had one purpose and desire in mind! He was to one day, be a sacrifice for mankind! He taught and gave us his words, powerfully spoken! He knew that one day, his body would be broken! He desired that all, would one day, come to know him! Because of his resurrection, all can receive him! He’s alive today! And reigns from heaven above! And desires to touch us, with his endless love! Won’t you humbly come, and accept what he’s given? And experience the power, of being forgiven! This can be your moment! This can be YOUR day! He loves you much more, than words can say! All honor and praise, to Christ Jesus, our king! You are our righteousness! Our everything! By Jim Pemberton

Life's Difficult Situations


Life can bring many difficult situations!
Often, there’s really no explanation!

No matter how smart or how wise,
Things can take us totally by surprise!

We can often find our life off course.
Many times, being driven by a “dark force.”

I know that it’s hard to know what to do.
Especially with what you
 may be going through!

I can’t think of all the right words to say…
To help you make it through another day!

But there’s someone, I can ask you to turn to!
He loves and is most concerned about you!

His name is Jesus!  The almighty God is he!
He’s committed to you now!  And for eternity!

He’s the one that you can trust and lean on!
And is someone that you can
 certainly depend on!

Won’t you give him an opportunity to help you?
He reaches out his hand!  Because he loves you!

He is the source with an eternal heavenly treasure!
He can completely fill you! 
 Beyond measure!

The decision is yours!  A choice to be made!
There’s nothing for Jesus what’s worth the “trade!”

He’s everything that any of us can ever think of!
And can do more for you!  Than you ever dreamed of!

He’s the alpha and omega!  The beginning and the end!
Won’t you allow him to be your
 savior and friend???

My Goodbye To A True Love

My Goodbye To A True Love

How could you have left me?
I never had the chance to say goodbye
I never had the chance to tell you how I felt
How much my heart will break without you in my life?
You had so many qualities God wants in a person
A golden heart that shined with love and caring
You had a smile that infected everyone you met
Your spirit shone like a beacon in the midnight sky
I am sure that God had plans for you
Otherwise he would not have taken you so soon
I am sure that you are in Heaven with other angels
Your memory will live in me and everyone who ever met you
Maybe one day God will look at me and decide that you and I were soul mates
He will see that I belong with you and He will take me in His arms
Holding me until you and I can be together again
I will take you in my arms and gently kiss you
And that will be the moment I will know that Heaven truly exists

Transformation of Thought

I thought I was living, but I knew I was dead
My essence was draining, leaking making me wish I could see
This wheel I ride was a simple device
Running down the road I knew it would never end
Forgive me for I have but one notion in this world
A crazy time, but it spits me in a kind of swirl
The existence of man is my one real legend
The dog came and put its head on my lap
Love so deep I felt it to my bone
Yes now I knew God was here
At last salvation, the time for wondering was over
I was really going home
Then the window opened and I was falling 
Help, help I screamed
Only the laughter echoed in my mind

Jesus Is the Only Way to Heaven

Jesus Is The Only Way to Heaven!

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
As people travel from all kinds of directions.

The directions for some seem easy to find.
Many follow what has entered their mind.

Some are looking for an “easy way out.”
And are often confused what life is all about.

Some are looking for a “peaceful atonement.”
As they try to prepare for life’s final moments.

Many religions clam they have the answer.
As people “swing” to the beat of the “dancer.”

There’s an answer to life’s chaos and confusion.
The Bible provides an answer and a solution.

It reminds us of a narrow road to heaven’s gate.
We must get on it now!  Before it’s too late!

Jesus is the only way for mankind to enter in!
It’s only through HIM that true life begins!

It’s only through HIM, that you can reach heaven’s portal.
Only through him, will your name be in heaven’s journal!

All of life’s best intentions can lead in disaster.
If you bypass Jesus, as your life’s going “faster.”

Won’t you make a commitment to Christ the king?
And allow him to be the lord of everything?

Won’t you take the narrow road, less traveled?
Before your life becomes tangled and unraveled?

The decision is yours...  Please don’t be late!
Jesus is waiting for you!   For heaven’s sake!

Heaven

I emerge --
light overwhelms me
with peacefulness

A welcome comes to mind, although
I have heard no words spoken.
How long did I sleep?  
A voice -- a million years.
I seek a presence and the angel appears.
Although the mist reveals
our nakedness, I think no sexuality.
You wonder about your wife.
Yes, the thought emerges as well as the answer.
Recognition will come in time.
When you want to see her, you will --
as well as the rest of your family if you wish.
The stranger said for me to relax and think.
Think about the good times and the times
I knew that she suffered pain, 
to be a complete wife and mother.
She will come to you, 
not through her own accord. 
She will want it with all of her longing, but
she will be here only for your happiness, 
only because you wish it.
Likewise if need be, you will be there for hers. 
Here we all exist in a multiple dimension.
Splitting—multiplying if needs be.
It changes depending on our wants and needs.
However, you will never want anything 
that you cannot have and you will always provide 
what anyone else wants of you, simultaneously.
You can split your dimension into a thousand parts—
a million parts, and even then you will have not begun 
to exhaust the possibilities which exist.  
God is here making all this possible.
God is inside of you for God makes up your being.
In a sense you are God 
but you will never want to be greater, than you are now.
What this means is that no matter how
many wish you to be with them, 
you will be with them all, at the same time.  
No matter how many you wish to be with you, 
they will all be here with you, 
individually or as many as you wish.  
Even while you are elsewhere they will all visit 
with you in the way they remember you,
and in the way you remember them.
All of you will gather all of these memories. 
They will embellish your love for one another.
You will savor them forever, making you complete.

Look around and know, understand, comprehend,

Are We Trying to Remove God From Everything


 UNSUPPORTED CODE We often hear this topic across our nation.
Another person crying; “discrimination.”

In our many attempts to not discriminate.
It seems like it’s God that we seek to eliminate.

It seems like we’ve come up with our own “rules.”
And somehow have turned into a bunch of “fools.”

We accept many perversions of various kinds…
But God himself?  We seem to close our minds!

In many of our lives,  we’ve “kicked “ him out.
And refuse what he really is about!

The words, “In God we trust...”  Our money bears it!
Anything of God?  We’re afraid to share it!

It seems like the courts almost say he doesn’t exist!
And have brought much confusion into our midst!

As many say it’s “offensive” to display a cross…
Many godly values have already been lost!

It’s time to wake up America!  And begin to see!
The kind of country we’re beginning to be!

A country that’s foundation is getting off course.
Being driven by a wicked and ungodly force!

Out only hope is in God!  And him alone!
We must invite him back into our homes!

To God and his word we must hold secure and fast!
He is our only hope that our country will last!

Sky-Falling Gold

Some complain of snow

Some complain of the cold

But what falls from the sky

Is much more golden than gold

Blessings from the sky

Yet we turn a blind eye

We instead express our disgust

When we could turn our sins into dust

We could pray to alleviate someone’s pain

But instead we scowl and frown on that rain

We could thank God instead of making a fuss

(It’s not like He’s throwing rocks down at us!)

A time to be grateful,

Yet we just complain

We could be making precious du’aa

For major beneficial gain

But it’s easier to grumble

Roll your eyes and shake your head

You may regret not taking advantage of this

When you’re long gone and dead

Don’t delay being

Grateful to your Lord

Let your heart live out

The ‘alhamdulileh’ word.

God Gives His Very Best

God Gives His Very Best! God loves YOU! And always gives his best! He offers his love! Why settle for less? He provides everything you’ll ever need! And has given his word to direct and lead! He gave his son to be sacrificed for us! And asks us to give him our heart and trust! His son came to you may have life eternal! So that your name can be in heaven’s journal! Won’t you take this time, and accept him? There’s no reason to refuse and reject him! Won’t you allow his presence to fill you? Before the problems of life “overwhelm” you! He’s God! He can do more than what you can think of! And he loves you more than any words can speak of! By Jim Pemberton

The Chorus of Death

Do you ever wonder why
when skies are gray and mothers die
why is there heaven and there is hell
when below damp soil is where we dwell

Clouds are heavy, thunders cry
cross my heart and hope to die
ever wonder how this world goes 'round
when all we ever do is lie beneath the ground

Waters boil and seagulls fly
against the screaming crows in the sky
ever stopped to wonder why they fight
when all we see is black as night

Fear them yes, face them no
only heaven saves us when we go
out into that fiery lake
ever wonder why our gods forsake

Tremble yes, hide from them no
ever wonder why we hate them so
when all the stars speak their name
and god spits you out all the same

Angels clash, devils fall
ever wonder why we love them so
when all their feathers rot and fade
no more wings for them that god has made

Let the come, let them fall
I can beat them one and all
For I am Death, and I am fear
ever wonder why I stay so near

I come for them and I come for you
no matter what you dream, or love, or do
ever wonder why all this is
when you are actually mine and not His

We Wrestle Not Against Flesh And Blood

We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood!

We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but powers in a high place!
It’s a battle that continues each day! It’s evil vs. God’s grace!

There are powers of good and evil fighting for you and me!
They’re fighting for where your soul will be for eternity!

The Bible clearly speaks of this, and makes it very clear!
This world, as we know it, shall one day disappear!

This battle is not ours, but a spiritual one that rages!
It’s been going on, since the beginning of the ages!

Satan has unleashed his evil demons to run “here and there.”
His ultimate goal is to see you dead! HE DOESN’T CARE!

Jesus came, to sacrifice his life, to purchase your soul!
He loves you so very much! More than you'll ever know!

If you see yourself “wrestling,”
 against another person…
Let this be a reminder to you! 
And an important lesson!

The truth of God’s word is relevant! 
May it speak to you today!
Where there is a spiritual battle… 
Christ has made a way!

He’s made a way to flee! And accept his salvation plan!
The best thing you can do,
 is to put you life in HIS hands!

Jesus is the best reason for you to accept him! 
Won’t you do it?
Through the struggles and battle of life… 
He will see you through it!

Please come Lord Jesus and touch us 
with your glory that shines!
For you have already won the battle!  And victory can be MINE!

Letter To You

A letter to you
Dear daughter of mine,
  Please don't cry! Please don't ask why.
For I have gone to heaven to plat my banjo. For the great Bill Monroe.
It will be not a song of sorrow that I play tomorrow.
For I will play on the stage with a lady named Patty Page.
I will not play to bitter, but with the great Tex Ritter.
So the music you hear in the sky will not make you cry.
For God only wants me to play my banjo.
   Love,
      Your dear old dad.

What Makes You Happy

What makes you happy?
Is it the stars at night?
The sound of the chirping birds?
Or is it because you received a blessing?

Are you happy because your chicken already laid its first egg?
Or because you've been enrolled to a school?
Is it because you've been rewarded a new pair of slippers?
Or because you got what you wanted from the mall?

Are you happy because your mom allowed you to have an ice cream?
Or maybe because your dad brought you to Disneyland?
Is it because life taught you a new game today?
Or because you enjoy some game on your iPod?

Are you happy because you've perfected the taste of your coffee?
Is that grin because of a bet you've won?
So why? Tell me
Is it the fact that there's still fresh air that you're breathing?

Is it because you just finished a novel?
Or because you've composed a song yourself?
Are you glad that you've designed a perfect house for you?
Or because you gave yourself a car?

Are you smiling because of your high grades?
Is it because you made a new friend today?
Do you feel great for having an awesome pet?
Or is it because your family loves you so?

Why are your dimples showing off?
Is it because you feel God's presence?
Or is it because you can now smell justice ahead of you?
Is that what makes you happy?

So what exactly makes you happy?
Who created that rainbow in your eyes?
Are you happy because you feel it?
Or are you just happy because you say so?

A Paean to God

That the brilliance of your majestic ways
and fire that burns from your white-hot eyes
may give their light to space of infinite size 
and shine on all Earth's creatures' love and praise;
that the mercy you give to him that prays
for pious ways to keep his lips from lies,
for faith and grace to remain pure and wise
may give heaven renewed glory and raise;
that the millennial Kingdom's earthly time
arrives after end times' brief, labor pangs
and saves God's children from sin's filthy grime,
so they that were tempted by Satan's gangs
will live on in glory and in their prime
once Christ removes the Serpent's deadly fangs!

LULLABY

        LULLABY
Read my mind and you'll know where I am going.
I'm going to the end of all things for you.
I will find all the love your heart is needing
And I will bring it here for you.
Yes I will bring it here for you.

Read my mind and you'll know what I've been thinking.
I'm thinking there's more love than you ever knew.
I will find all the love for which you're searching
And I will bring it here for you.
Yes I will bring it here for you.

Don't tell me you're older because of your tears.
Your crying will see you through all of your years.
Just always believe in what Heaven can do
and teardrops are only God crying with you.

Read my mind and you'll know what I am doing.
I'm reaching for more love than you ever knew.
I will find all the love  while you are sleeping.
And I will bring it here for you.
Yes I will bring it here for you.
I will bring it here for you.

Cross That Bridge

There is a bridge in my eyesight
that can take me from here to there
And, where that bridge will take me
I don't think I really care

It has to be a wonderful place 
with flowers, fields and tree's
It has to be the biggest thing
that every person see's

In this place there will be no old
just everything that's new
There will never be a reason to lie
'cause the spoken word is true

There is happiness and kindness
in this place I know we'll love
The light will radiate this Heavenly place
as it sits up high above

So I ask you to come on over
but you will never jump that ridge
You must fill your heart with the love of Christ
and, only then you'll cross that bridge

Journey Of Souls

life is fleeting
 
passes swiftly by
 
every soul is born to die
 
every moment soon will pass
 
this earthly life does not last
 
where are we to go from here
 
the end of life we hold so dear
 
every one of us will perish
 
as will those we love and cherish
 
life is fleeting
 
does not last
 
into darkness will we be cast
 
or into a light so warm and bright
 
with long lost loved ones in our sight
 
some believe in heaven and hell
 
some believe in nothing
 
some have died and come back to tell
 
some saw heaven some saw hell
 
but each passing soul saw something
 
some say the light is blue
 
some say it is white
 
some said darkness was beckoning
 
some simply followed the light
 
one day death will come
 
all that lives will sucumb
 
back to choas of which we came
 
or cast into an eternal flame
 
some say hell is a frozen lake
 
not hot but very cold
 
not one of us wants to find out
 
and if i may be so bold
 
some are what i call sheeple
 
believing all they're told
 
how did God come to exist
 
an end of something that makes sense
 
but no beginning
 
i cannot conceive
 
but thats what some believe
 
how did God come to be
 
its far too complicated for you and me
 
where are our souls to go
 
perhaps we are not meant to know

A Letter to Heaven

I am writing a letter, to heaven today.
There are a few things, that I'd like to say.

My heart has been broken, since you went away.
I yearn for the days ,that we used to play.

I can't feel the sunshine, it's cloudy and gray.
I just don't know what, you want me to say.

I'll always remember ,on that fateful day,
When God called from heaven, and you went away.

So I'm writing this letter, to heaven today.
There's just a few things, that I'd like to say.

'Til I hear God calling, each day I will pray.
That we'll be together, in heaven some day.

Hidden

The innocent child still crying,
That you nailed up on your wall,
Her tears are freely flowing,
As the autumn leaves do fall.
The wind of time still blowing,
Across the lonely way,
As the soldiers march to battle,
On this bright and sunny day.
I couldn't get the words,
To leave my knotted throat,
I couldn't get my loved ones,
To leave the sinking boat.
I couldn't think the thoughts,
That could protect me from the light,
Couldn't see your beauty,
Hidden in my night.

And now the end is coming,
Riding on the wind,
To blow away illusions,
To blow up everything.

The riders horse is thunder,
The swords are flashing high,
As the angels of destruction 
Fall from the darken sky.

A million times I told you,
Whispered in your ear,
A million blessing hidden,
Behind the demons of your fears.

The innocent lamb is bleeding,
As the lightening flashes by,
The autumn leaves still falling,
From the sadness in your eye.

Contrast

Pharisee went into the Temple to pray
Sure of his goodness and love for God
He prayed confidently about his deeds
Fasting, tithing, praying, He did faithfully
 
This man was glad when the sinner came
Into the Temple with eyes downcast.
For it gave a perfect contrast to himself.
So he thanked God he wasn't like this sinner.
 
Sinner was bowed so very low before God.
"God have mercy on me a sinner." he whispered.
No list of good uttered, as he could see none.
Jesus said Sinner not Pharisee was justified.
 
Simon the Pharisee invited Jesus over to eat.
Simon didn't have servants wash Jesus feet
He didn't kiss Jesus or draw near for fear,
Fear of what others Pharisees would think.
 
In came a sinful woman with unkempt hair.
She wept at Jesus feet without looking up.
Carefully she wiped these feet with her hair.
Simon was now sure Jesus was no prophet
 
A prophet could surely tell she was a sinner.
How could he let her touch him that way?
Reading Simon's thoughts Jesus taught.
Using this contrast in real life as a lesson.
 
He asked Simon if there were two debts
One greater, one lesser and both forgiven.
Who would feel greater love and gratitude?
Simon replied, "The one whose debt was greater"
 
"Correct" said the One who would pay all debts.
Those who know their debt to God is great.
Are filled with greater love toward the Savior.
Simon showed he had little need for the Christ.
 
But to the woman. Jesus said, "You sins are forgiven."
"Go and sin no more." She stood free and esteemed
Precious are those who come humbly to the Lord
He will forgive and welcome them to His Family forever.
 
Humility. Pride. Contrast. Mixed in all of us.
People who come to God feeling worthless, Christ lifts up.
People striding in proudly, Jesus humbles to allow entry.
For the Lord's Kingdom's door is incredibly low.
So low that we enter only through true confession
From the heart to Jesus as Savior who humbled Himself
Coming down from glory to earth's mess to make a Way.
By humbling Himself on a Cross – Universe's God tortured.
 
Jesus contrast makes ours seem small – so why wait?
May we take the humble road to Life, risen Christ made.
Joining God's family of forgiven, freed, joyful sinners.
New life's contrast with old will grow as we follow Him.
 
By a thankful sinner now saint by Jesus' grace

My Baby Angel

I'm sitting here thinking,
  thinking about the day.
The day my Lord Jesus Christ,
  carried my baby angel away.

Then I think my baby angel sings,

While our Lord God Highest of High,
  The Almighty leads and lights the way.

Holding the hand of Jesus Christ,
  my baby angel walks golden streets.
I miss my little angel and one day,
  One day in glorious heaven we will meet.

A day I will praise and rejoice,
  My soul will see your face.
We'll be together forever and I'll never,
  again feel so out of place.

We Are Muslims Yes We Love Jesus

I am a Muslim: yes, I love Jesus –
For Jesus was a Prophet of Allah.
Jesus was a Muslim, so was Moses –
With David – their religion was Islam.

Allah – the Only God – The God of all –
Allah sent Prophets to call every one –
To worship One God – answer Allah’s call –
Prophets like Jonah, John, and Solomon –

Also Prophets were Prophet Abraham,
Prophet Ishmael, Jacob, and Isaac –
With Noah – they all believed in Islam –
With Muhammad – as their final and last.

Love Allah, and love His Last Messenger –
Muhammad, who owned the best character.
(SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam)
________________________________________________
Do you know what Islam is?

Let me share with you some information
Some info about the faith I follow
Because I care, I need you to listen
Be open-minded. Be not shallow.

Islam is the faith that God gave us all
'Tis the religion that loves peace, not war.
'Tis the only faith that God can accept
- God's gift for all humankind – near and far –

Islam requires that we worship One God
Allah – who created all of mankind –
Islam is a great gift from God who cares
Who gave each of His slaves a thinking mind

I am a Muslim. My faith is Islam.
I believe in One God who made us all
Who sent Prophets to invite people to
Worship One God and answer Allah's Call

Do you know, Abraham's faith is Islam
Islam – the religion of God's Prophets
Prophets like Muhammad – the final one –
Prophets like David, Jesus, and Moses

It makes sense to worship just One God
Allah – the Just King and Owner of all –
The Creator who fashioned all of us
Who made things of various shapes – big and small –

It does not make sense if someone gives you
A gift from where you can learn many things
A gift that brings peace which you can share with
Loved ones – a gift that protects your well-being

It does not make sense if you are given
That special gift and you don't accept it
If you throw it away, you hurt that person
If you reject God's gift, you might regret it

So accept Islam – embrace it with love –
Islam – a gift from God who wants to guide
Islam – the only key to Paradise
Which only the wise and pure souls can find

Heaven (As I See It)

Behind the lines of grace
A mighty river flows
Down the shores of heaven’s street
Pathways paved with gold
A place so many doubt exists 
But I know this to be true
For in a dream one fateful night
The colors showed brightly through

Many questions left unanswered 
Asked each night in prayer
The mind cannot comprehend 
This place beyond compare
One night down on my knees
The question simply asked
To show me a picture of this place called Heaven 
Where there is everlasting life

Nothing what I had pictured 
Could prepare for this place
I saw the souls of loved ones 
Passed on so full of grace
No wings were present on no man
No halos lined with gold
Just happy souls praising God 
No dancing around a throne

People of every likeness 
Sang a welcoming song to those
Entering the pathway to heaven’s gates
Where their soul would hurt no more
But the one face that I did not see
Was the face of the God I served
His presents though was all around
Each person did behold

I awoke that morning at peace with life
For the place that God had shown
Many questions now were answered 
About life and love and home
In the end amazed you will be 
At the place that God’s prepared
Believe it or not Heaven is a place
Look around you’re already there

Sin Always Has A Price


As people are encouraged to “indulge within...”
They often become caught and trapped in sin!

Far too often, there’s an enticement to “fantasize.”
Of the many temptations flashed before the eyes!

There’s a problem, too often misunderstood!
Life doesn’t happen, like many think it should!

What’s often acted out and too often displayed…
Comes from a ruined life, that’s been betrayed!

One can easily find perversion of many kinds.
This can easily “overwhelm” someone’s mind!

I know that it’s easy to be “trapped and snared.”
It can leave one feeling 
alone and scared!

That which you may have craved,
 for some kind of fulfillment.
Has left you empty!  With no real enjoyment!

It’s easy to fall into bondage!  Difficult to get out!
Victory in Jesus is what his power is all about!

Won’t you call on him now?  
And let his love “soak through?”
He brings true meaning in the words; “I LOVE YOU!”

His love is not in some kind of cheap entertainment!
Only he can bring true peace and contentment!

You don’t need to spend money on the life he brings!
He is God!  And doesn’t need to use earthly things!

Sin has a price!  It seeks to have your eternal soul!
Only the blood of Jesus can make you complete and whole!

The gift of salvation is from Jesus!  And is freely given!
He alone has the power to change
 how you’re livin’!

As they follow me all of my days.
If only we could see the beauty
That they truly are.
They shout out dreams
That we can reach so far.
Climb into the rocket
And liftoff!
On a journey to discover ourselves,
We are taught so much more,
Learning our goals are only a plan away.
Even thought we must return,
I know that I will be back.
I am an astronaut,
And we always reach for the stars.

freedom

some ****ed in the mouth, put blades
He was not absurd
to give us words.
we have given ourselves
to appear more beautiful
to love otherwise
criminals 
to be perfect
we do not feel alone
+ need to explain
why and how, etc.. 
all are funny
and finally I do not understand 
Where is He in all of this!?

look
Can it and shout:
Oh, my God!
but I must take care
to pray
not be afraid
to forget all the words
me to stay away
because some of they make a love of this things
just for them.

With The Best Of Intentions And A Heart Of Grace


With the best of intentions and a heart of grace…
Christ died on a cross!  He took our place!

With the best of heaven close by his side…
Christ opened the door to heaven ever so wide!

With the best love that anyone could bring…
He took away our sin and “erased” everything!

With the best that his father could bring from above.
It was his gifts of mercy, 
grace and love!

With the “best” man could offer, he would still “fall short.”
God brought the gift of salvation,
 down into our “court.”

With hearts filled with wickedness and so much sin…
Through Christ’ shed blood... 
 We can be made “born again!”

With each day we have...  Christ is always here!
His commitment to us is everlasting and secure!

With every moment of the day 
 we have before us…
May we spend time with God…  
He’s always with us!

With what God has given to you….  
Won’t you come to him?
Through his son Jesus, 
your heavenly journey begins!

“I LOVE YOU!” Are the words God has written!
This can be the day your changed and forgiven!

What Have I Done For Jesus

What Have I Done For Jesus???

I’m trying to remember the things I’ve dreamed of…
There so much I haven’t done, that I can think of!
I’m trying to remember when I was just a young boy…
There were things in life that I really enjoyed!
But, as I grow older, and it’s all done and said…
I feel more aches and pains each time I get out of bed!

This old body of mine is growing very weary and old.
I don’t have a lot of time, as I have been told!
There’s one area in life, where I’ve fallen short of a goal…
I haven’t given God a chance to redeem my soul!
I suppose I’ve been too prideful and stubborn at best…
I need to give God my life, and let him take care of the rest!

Dear Jesus, I come to you now and confess my sinful ways!
I accept you as my Lord and savior, for the rest of my days!
Please come lord Jesus, and bring your healing deep within!
Cleanse and change me, and take away all of my sin!

You’re what I need!  And are truly my best friend!
How I love and appreciate you!  Again and again!

Taking The Lead

I can feel Your presence;
I can feel You in all that I do.
I can feel You walking with me,
And I don't know what to do.
I just need to trust You
Because this is a journey I cannot see.
I am giving up;
Thank You for taking the lead.

Child of a King

The God of angels,
the God of universe
the God of Jacob
the God of Abraham
He created earth
From dearth
He made the great 
oceans,
Lakes, Seas & Rivers
He made each of us
For a special purpose
He knows us by name
What we've been 
through
What we're yet to
He knows our dreams
Our reasons for living


The same God
Holds us when we are 
broken
Heals us when we are 
hurt
Comforts us when we 
lose

The same God Looks at 
me 
with kind eyes
His constant love 
it guides
He's there when I call 
on Him
He whispers words of 
comfort 
When am troubled and 
defeated
He holds my hand
Oh ever so gently
to show me the way
When am going astray,

Is'nt He the same God 
who created the 
universe
The one who calmed 
the storm
The one who made way 
in a sea
The one who turned 
darkness to light.

This God is our dad
This King knows us by 
name
He loves you Just the 
way you are
With your flaws
Imperfections and 
weaknesses.

Am proud to be the 
CHILD OF A KING

	To the “mother” I wish I had,
To the sister I wish I knew,
I want you to know this,
I love you!
	I want God to bless you,
Even more than me,
When you die, I want you to go,
To Heaven for eternity.
	May God lift your voice,
To Heaven up above,
And may He rain down His blessings,
To you in love.
	I wish your voice to be strong,
For all the times we meet,
Your voice will be so wonderful,
I’ll fall in my seat!

To the sister I wish I knew,
I want you to know this,

Freedom

The yellow lines just inches away, 
I collapse right before it, deep into insanity.
Not knowing how or when I’ll wake up from the death-inducing coma.
Shackles on my ankles, bounding me to the cement jail of choices.

“Freedom! ” I cry, 
Not knowing I have limited time to be granted that demand.
Realizing I've forgotten the roots of life.

“Freedom! ” I cry once again being tortured by the demons eating at my soul.
Ten minutes left, until death has won me over.

“Freedom! ” Reaching for the only thing in sight, the book given to me years ago.

“Freedom! ” Five minutes until disappearance into the soul dimension.
The crinkled pages sputter dust while being opened.
The old book full of odd adventures, true adventures nevertheless.
Water-stained pages full of life, 
Waiting to be taken of their oxygen.

I flip through it one last time, 
Hoping to save the lost cause that is I.

“Freedom! ” I whisper.
The time is nigh.

The end of its usage is almost through, one last time before its entirety will be thrown down.
From “In the beginning”, down to the giving of Grace, the book’s life is over.
As if it goes with me.

“Freedom! ” I scream out in joy.
Looking above in the bright light, 
Grasping at the yellow line, 
The finish line, 
Where Heaven meets Earth.

Heaven

Heaven is a real place,
With streets of gold,
And pearly gates.

A river flows from God's throne,
Near it, is the tree of life,
There, the sun has never shone,
For God's glory fills it with light. 

I refuse to speak more,
Of heaven's great splendor,
For its riches most assuredly,
Over time will tend to bore me.

See my Father is a gardener,
Who prunes off fruitless branches, 
He's also a pardoner,
Who gave me many chances.

Maybe that will help explain,
I'll tell you without shame,
Heaven holds only one treasure, 
For which my heart does pine,
That's the gem called Immanuel, 
The one and only true vine.

A God of the Past and the Future

A God of the Past & the Future “1 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” 5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” Rev 21:1-5 NIV Although world history is taught As the history of civilizations, God is in control of the past and the future, As can be seen from Genesis to Revelation. God created this earth and the heavens, And will destroy it with fire as well. The earth and heavens will be made new, That’s what John the Revelator did tell. Human history had a definite beginning And faces a glorious future too. Of this we can be certain, Because God’s words are trustworthy and true. The Lord knows the end and has revealed it, To those who choose to seek. The old will give way to the new; The proud will give way to the humble and weak. History had its beginning, And will have its end as well. The prophets acted as historians, And the future so often did spell. God sustains all His creations By natural laws that are good, But some humans choose to ignore Him; Their self-sufficiency not understood. The rise and fall of kingdoms Is in God’s powerful hands. The great controversy between good and evil, Man only partly understands. God is A God of the Past and the Future; Time stands in between. Christ has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; Our stranded history will soon be nothing but a dream! Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2012 www.maureenlefanue.com

Off The Tracks

Written March 19, 2013


Along the fine black print
Has left me wondering why
They've been making it so hard
For a poor old man to die

I know what I done
Even God would shun
From the tales I've told
Of the bodies turned cold

The world has turned
Yet the butter still churns
Along the Alabama coast
Where I used to boast

Its been a few years now
Since the car stopped running
A loose train off the tracks
Lord I should have seen it coming

They know I've learned my lesson
But hell won't let me out
'Cause heaven won't take me in
Such a wicked world's chagrin

God Wants You to Be With Him Forever



 God Wants You To Be With Him forever!

Heaven can one day be your
 eternal home!
You can have a mansion
 next to God’s throne?

You can know for a certainty…
Where you’ll be spending eternity.

Through Christ, your sins
 can be forgiven!
Christ’ love can change
 the way you’re livin’!

You can know 
beyond any doubt.
What true life is all about!

You can know
 the peace of God today!
Meditate on God’s word
 and what it has to say!

Why not give your heart to him?
And know what it means
 to be born again!

Your life can have
 a Godly direction!
And accept his heart-felt invitation?

You can know God’s
life changing power?
What are you waiting for?  
This could be YOUR hour!

You taught me the greatest thing as you sat talking with everyone through those tender moments given you, gasping for-air... ! Knowing, trying to offer them this truth... . Because being merely six and one half at the time still you knew, had been shown this yourself, were grateful, prayed to remain. You knew "Love is patient, kind and generous, heavenly, faithfully-and-eagerly; tenderly-aware... ." And Sissy-too... I believe now given that day you passed... beams of light shining strait on you in your bed in your room, dust gently drifting... .

Gifted Believers

Gifted Believers “10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen. ” 1 Peter 4:10-11 NIV The Holy Spirit calls us to ministry And equips us as well. He gives us gifts to witness And of God’s love to tell. He sends us out for ministry And equips us for each task. He is our Helper sent by Christ; All we need do is ask. Gifted Believers have a mission To teach, prophesy or heal; Will be given affirmation from fellow servants; Their gifts heaven desires to reveal. In the work of spreading the Gospel, Each believer must be involved. Nurturing is just as important, As preaching or administration problems solved. Spiritual gifts are distributed by the Holy Spirit, As he sees these gifts required. Self is not involved in the decision-making, And the choice cannot be aspired. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal, The gifts you have been given. He’ll equip you to use them To swell the courts of heaven. Gifted Believers are to spread the gospel; Depend upon the Holy Spirit; Be equipped by faith for the ministry— God’s power and glory to admit. The glorification of our Father And His amazing love Is what draws each stranger To desire a home in heaven above. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

The Cruise of Destination

All aboard
The ship which draws near
To the shore of our hopes
On the land with no fear

Come one, come all!
To the ride of your life!
Every sister and brother 
Every husband and wife 

It's time to depart!
Although you may ask 
Where are we going?
Why so fast?

There's no time for questions 
Let alone answers that last
Just know that time's ticking
We must learn to take chance

Our destination is joy
Yet our voyage is masked
With hardship and struggle
The hardest of tasks

Yet we'll be awakened 
From that sea which blinds sight
When we reach our destination 
To the land with all light

And with one fine footprint 
On the white sand of gold
All creation will celebrate 
Even the youngest of olds 
For you had just boarded 
The ship to go home
And all that you'll offer
Is all that you've sown

Do You Blame Or Trust God


Do You Blame Or Trust God? Do you blame God for the trials you may face? Do you reject God’s mercy and grace? Perhaps you are in a most “difficult situation.” You can’t figure out a “reasonable explanation?” You may feel abandoned, alone and afraid. There may have been times when you prayed. You don’t know why this happening to you? You probably try your best in all that you do! But, it still things really haven’t worked out. And you often wonder what life is all about? Rather than blaming God… Why not trust him? He’s not your enemy! He wants you to know him! He’s not the blame for the sorrows of mankind! He’s always faithful, most loving and kind! He patiently waits for anyone to call on his name! With him in control… Things won’t be the same! He is here! Even if everyone else fails you! If you give him a chance! He wants to help you! Won’t you take the time, and invite him in? This is where a new opportunity can begin! His life for yours, is what he gives in exchange! He can help your situation to really change! He can change your life! And turn it around! And can put your life on a solid ground! By Jim Pemberton

God Has Sent Jesus

God Has Sent Jesus!

God has given a wonderful gift!.  
Many haven't received it.
He loves us so much! 
 Many do not believe it.

He’s given us the gift of salvation.  
Many refuse it.
All that we hold on to.  
We shall one day lose it...

God gives to all, a joyous and 
brand new way of living!
Many are living a life
 that is not fulfilling.

Jesus...  His Son...  Is knocking 
at our heart's door.
Many have said; "Go away!"  
I don't want you anymore!"

God looks down from heaven,
 and what does he find?
The wickedness and
 sin there is in mankind.

Won't you accept this gift 
that he offers to you?
The choice is yours alone.  
What are you going to do?

He awaits your decision.  You need to 
make up your mind.
Now is the day of salvation. 
 Now is the accepted time!

Time is growing short.  
The hour's getting late.
Come to him now!  While there's
 still an open gate!

Angels in Heaven Above

It is said there are Angels
 In Heaven above
 And they shine with the light
 Of an inner love

 Of these things
 I had not a clue
 But that was
 Before I found you

 For in you I’ve found
 A love that is so right
 It shines all around
 With the brightest of light

 It comes from somewhere
 So deep within
 That it has no beginning
 And knows no end

 Your love is a light
 That brightens each day
 Of all of the people
 You see on your way

 Where ever you go
 Or whatever you do
 All see the love
 That you have inside you

 That God sent you here
 To a place where you’d be
 Sharing such love
 With someone like me

 Is proof for me
 That angels exist
 And are filled with a love
 That no man could resist

 I thank God each day
 For finding the time
 For looking down on me
 And making you mine

 So yes there are Angels
 In heaven above
 I know because God
 Sent me one to love

If God Made Me Immortal

If God Made Me Immortal By Rick Rucker If God offered to make me immortal, so that I would ever be, I would say “No thanks,” if I could not forever see, The vision of the Angel that has saved me from the Fire, She reached down into it, and put my Suffering on the pyre, She took this old carcass, and made it feel young once again, She has made me feel like a Giant among men! She has healed my Soul, and set my Spirit free, And gently holding Her is how I always want to be! Living until Forever would not be Heaven without my Love, Just the thought of it, sounds like Hell above! I would much prefer to have a normal life, With this Angel that has agreed to be my Wife! When my time to pass comes up, I will be happy, don’t you see? I know that soon, together, we will always be! If Heaven is for Lovers, then our place is ready there, You will see us running, holding hands, without a care!

Eyes grow weary, have they learned to see
During years of absence, you from me
Your story's at end, your chosen plot
Time draws near, but you may know not

Shall I see my mother, perhaps my dad
Ever watchful, my being glowing so glad
It is time, I wait with mounting joy
For them once again to be girl or boy

That which was separate, will now be one
Your chosen tasks are nearly done
At the entrance, there I stand
Reunion time is close at hand

From the palm of His hand I've watched you grow
Seeds of goodness, We watched you sow
Come be with me and share His land
I await the touch of your sweet hand

I fault you not, as you can see
I love you so, come be with me
So hasten forth, with lifted heart
No longer more shall we be apart

These words I write, so dear to me
Express my desire that you'll be free
If the gate be locked, search for the key
But look not far, in your heart it will be.

With God’s love…  There is no end!

And the way you’re livin’!

There’s no end to the words

Why not allow his love to enter your heart
and be “inner-woven.?”

There’s no end to the power
 of his healing!
The words;  “I love you!”  
He’s always revealing!

There’s no end to HIS majesty!
 He rules SUPREME!
He is God.  Your provider… 
 He Is EVERYTHING!

There’s no end to the times he’s 
knocked at your heart’s door.
Why not invite him in???

Why not accept this unlimited God

Won’t you do this today? 
 Why there is still time?

See Me

See me rest in peace with 'the sickest' on my tomb stone. See me running up to the enemy while you've gone prone. You've got to be strong in the mind as well as the soul. No other enemy's will know what you know. See me defending you. As of right now our best option is to stay true.

See me by you're side when the sky went black. I'll be here right when the devil chooses to attack. Take what you want there will be no going back. Now what you need to focus on is survival. You need to gain strength if you're going to survive along side you're rival's. They'll try to push you down. I have faith that you wield a force strong enough to take the almighty crown. Now let's try and be real. I don't know how to say this. But i have messed up our deal.

I was supposed to give you Happiness and The Human Breed. Instead i gave you Untrue peace and Eternal greed. Remember these tactics they will help you fight the battle. When the enemy is upon do not shake make a noise or rattle. Me and You can help fight the world's problem's. Even if it hurt's when we see the outcome. But I love you son and i will always be with you. I hope to see you're staying Good Proud And True.

The Meaning of Love

Many have pondered the meaning of love 
and here is the answer from heaven above. 
Love is kind generous and unspoiled.
Love is faithful but not of this world. 
Love is patient forgiving and true.
Love will chase away all of your blues.
Love is honest and never misleads.
Love is happy and worry free.
Love is all in this world that is good. 
Love is never misunderstood. 
Love is caring and knowing no wrong. 
Love is expressed in beautiful songs.
Love will support you and set you free. 
Love is freely given and forever will be. 
Love it protects and is never late.
Love destroys and devours hate.
Love most of all is from heaven above.
Love is God and God is love.

There Is A Heaven There Is A Hell

There Is A Heaven... There Is A Hell… I met a person. As he spoke, I could tell. He’s quite happy. He doesn’t believe there a “hell.” He said; “much of what the Bible says has a new meaning. “God is a loving God,” is rather appealing. “God couldn’t condemn a person to an eternal fire.” “This isn’t his will…” “Nor his desire.” “The words of death or hell don’t mean what they say.” “Why should anyone believe that Jesus is the way?” Christ came so we can spend eternity with him. He became the ultimate sacrifice for our sin. It’s not God. But our sin, that’s caused a “separation.” But God has extended to all his gift of salvation. God’s warning is clear. And quite evident. The coming of Christ is very soon and imminent! The truth of God’s word is 100% certainty. And gives clear direction where you’ll spend eternity. Narrow is heaven’s road... Broad is the road to eternal destruction. Will you believe God’s word? Or live on a false assumption? All of heaven awaits for you to make a decision. Why not follow Christ? And make heaven your mission? Allow God to work in your life. Simply obey and believe. His abundance of life is for everyone to receive! By Jim Pemberton 09/09/11

Why Do People Complain About God


Quite often, I hear many complaints
When it comes to Godly “restraints.”

Often, things of God are
called “bigotry.”
AS much of this nation indulges
In idolatry!

God?   Well, “we just don’t
need him!”
”Why should anyone ever believe him?”

Many churches provide
very little Godly direction.
They’re more concerned about
“getting people’s attention.”

No wonder why many don't 
know what to believe!.
Drugs and sex is what many
 want to achieve!

God is what is really what’s needed!
Without him, our life is
never completed!

Rather than complain…
We need to praise him!
One day…  We shall all
kneel down before him!

It’s only in Christ… 
We have purpose and hope!
Without him…  We’re on a
“slippery slope.”

Won’t you come and invite
the Lord Jesus in?
He’ll bless your life 
again and again!

He gives true life!  That’s everlasting!
It can be yours!  Just for the asking!

There's A God Who Loves YOU

There’s A God Who Loves You! In spite of what the courts and what people tell you… There is a God, who’ll always love you! No matter how courts try their best to remove him… His son reaches out to you! And wants you to trust him! No matter what the sacrifice, or what the cost… His son died for you! On an old rugged cross! No matter what you’ve heard, or who you listened… There’s an everlasting life that you’re missin’! No matter how many times you’ve caused sin and shame… You can find 100 percent forgiveness in Jesus’ name! No matter how many times that people have failed you… There is a God in heaven, who will always love you! Won’t you take the time, with no more postponement? And seek forgiveness in his blood’s atonement? The time is now, the opportunity is certainly here! Wherever you may go… God is always near! By Jim Pemberton

A Chat With God

God you Love us right?

Right,

Well why so much pain,
I'm sprinting through the fire,
but I can still feel the flame

My child,
I love you,
I know this world can be evil,
deceitful,
yet you all are still my people,

if you want us to live,
why do you allow death,
my cousin was only one,
he went blind and deaf,

Once again my child,
I have the perfect plan,
some things that I do,
man will never understand,
Sometimes the human mind can be very conceited,
angels don't die they ascend to me when needed,

Well if you love us so much,
why is this world in such a swirl,
why did hi jackers hit the tallest structure in the world?
Why did Hitler kill so many of your people,
I can't see you,
but oh Lord we need you

My son,
This world requires patience, 
The basics, 
sometimes you need mediation,
my revelation comes to life in Revelations,
My child,
Lucifer is real,
he comes to kill,
steal,
when hurting he will come as a pill,
if you need money bad,
he will be a drug deal,
he comes as temptation,
he loves contemplation,
But just believe in me and soon you shall see
Elevation..

Mercy

Cut the trees 
and cut your veins
for your extinction is entwined

These creatures that have been robbed of home
are on this conscience of mine.
Can my existence
be above their creation,
is extinction my legacy?

Will god forgive my sins?
or am I the parasite from above.
Death and destruction are part of me,
can heaven really want the likes of me?

My number will pillage the earth
and only god can stop me.
But in this testimony
the shadows of past will condemn
and the time draws near,
when I too will become a memory.

This life that shared the will of man
will thank god for my demise
for I will repent, 
though the universe is blind.
 I am insignificant
a temporary molecule in time.

I humbly accept this judgement 
of a higher being, for we cannot trust ourselves.
 My nature is to destroy the things of life,
this is the sum of mankind
for greed is programmed into me.

Will the dodo forgive from above?
was its flesh worth the feast?
Every day the beauty of creation disappears,
will these creatures that are now silent
ever forgive.

Can arrogance belong to the dawn of man?
Does this final supper belong to me?
The earth devoid of life, 
my power is that of progress
and reward is a desert without life, my kingdom.

Can this universe stop the devil in Man?
For I am mankind, heaven is my arrogance
and I am the king of life
Ruler of all this silence 

And now it is too late
for silence has found me.

God Knew Me Before I Was Born

God Knew Me Before I Was Born! God knew me, before I existed! He was there, before my name was listed! Before I was born, he had a divine plan! He was there, before I reached out my hand! Before I knew who I even was, or my name… His life for mine, way why his son came! Before I could put on my shoes and clothes… He had called me! It was I… That he chose! Before I was old enough to make up my own mind… He was there waiting! So patient and kind! Before I became an adult… I refused to believe! Whatever God offered... I didn’t want to receive! Before too long… I had my own family and home. But then family left me... And I was alone! Before God… I came, and cried and repented! The inside of my mind felt confused and tormented! Before I really knew what was actually going on… God reached inside and forgave me of past wrongs! Before the next day was coming about… I found a new love and peace throughout! Before God, I know that he’s changed me! I have found a new life for eternity! Won’t you come before God and accept him too? You’ll never know what he can do for YOU! By Jim Pemberton

As I Lift My Eyes To See Heaven

As I Lift My Eyes To See Heaven



I lift my eyes to see heaven above
God's trinity that does so shine
Golden vessels filled with love
God's heart forever loving mine

Sweet are the words sent to me
sacrifice given to change my fate
Lord, answering my desperate plea
washing away all the evil hate

Glory, too weak for describing you
mankind, unworthy to your name 
True love you sent sweetly into
we that were so blinded and lame

The Trinity stands as the only One
your divine Will never to be undone

Artistry In The Evening Sky

While driving down a country road one eve,
I took a look up in the western sky;
The sight I saw was awesome to receive
As God’s artwork there met my watching eye.
The sun was shining through the scattered clouds
And making stairways with its brilliant rays.
I’d love to climb one if I were allowed,
Ascending I would sing my Savior’s praise.
Then as I turned to go there from the west,
The eastern sky was blackened with the rain,
And as I drove into it I was blessed
To see a rainbow’s color once again.
So brilliant was it on its canvas dark;
A dimmer one accompanied at its side.
So awed was I at this sight to embark,
With joy in voice to heaven then I cried.
No way could evolution draw this art!
I thought as through the pouring rain I went;
I know God gave that picture in my heart
Of the majestic colors that He spent.
A stairway up to heaven in sun’s rays,
A rainbow arc of color there so bright,
And just the thoughts of giving God the praise—
What artristy in evening sky that night!

The Bible Says Jesus Loves Me

The Bible says
Jesus loves me
this I know
HIs love I see
 
Jesus has died
to wash away my sin
this I know
so to heaven I go in
 
The Bible says
Jesus loves me still
it doesn't matter what
whether even when weak and ill
 
Jesus loves me eternally
for the Bible says so
Jesus is making a home
that one day I will go to
 
The Bible says
Jesus loves me
this I know
His love I see

The Afterlife

Many people who don’t understand about Jesus
Fail to understand about Heaven and Hell
Many of these people get misled
They are fooled so easily

They believe in concepts such as paradise on earth 
Resting in peace, being one with the universe and being free once you die
They believe that hell is simply the grave or even worse, that hell is what goes on here on earth
I mean, seriously, who writes this stuff?

Many people believe that Heaven is like a dreamland for the good and Hell is like a punishment for the bad; they act as if concepts like new birth or even believing in God don’t even play a role
In where one spends his or eternity

Well, here’s it goes…
Some people who we consider “bad” gives their lives, even if it’s the last moments of their lives to God and experience rebirth and go to Heaven and some people we consider “good” but live in sin and do not give their lives to God and experience rebirth go to Hell. 
I’m not judging and God judges on a case by case basis.

Hell is not earth, planet earth is earth, nor is it the grave
It is a place where souls, demons, and Satan are tormented
It is full of brimstone and fire
And the number three desires are air conditioning, cold weather, and ice water

Heaven is the place where God dwells and Jesus sits on the throne
The streets are paved with gold, everyone is happy, hard at work but happy with their duties, children are playing and everyone is always learning something new, and the streets are made with gold and everyone has his or her own mansion.

That’s the afterlife. 
To get the good version of the afterlife, you must give your life to Christ by confessing that He died on the cross and believing that God raised Him from the dead and ask God to help live up to His standard of holiness.

God Will Never Disappoint You


God Will Never Disappoint You!

There’s something I want to say!  
And to make a point!
Those who trust God…  
He will never disappoint!

You can trust him, even if problems
 surround you!
What God can do for you,
 just may astound you!

Look through the Bible, 
and the prophets of old.
God never let them down,
 as I’ve been told!

His son Jesus, seeks to give life
 with a true meaning!
His faithfulness in your life, 
you can be receiving!

God will never let you down,
 no matter what you face!
He can make everything beautiful! 
With his love and grace!

Won’t you give him a chance
 and trust him today?
Trusting his promises, 
and the words he has to say!

He’s someone who’ll be with you
until life’s very end!
You can always count on him,
 and call him; “friend!”

Gifts From Heaven Above

Dragonflies fly around the pond,
As the timeless moonlight gazes on the river,
And the oceans white caps coast on the beach,
Along the sunset of a beautiful day,
Of this hard day of this world's pleasures,
We take the journey of this hard day of this world's pleasure,
In this Kingdom of God,
For even with the stuggles we have,
We climb the ladders of hope,
To find the fulfillment in our hearts,
That will bring us all the happiness and joy,
And maybe one day,
To the everlasting gates where we may enter,
For the everlasting life where we may stay.

Fill Us Again

These days we all are just a bit more wiery ,
Even on common ground we have become leary.
  Trust is much harder to come by  these days,
Losing our faith has made us lose our way.
  Kindness & compassion a thing of the past,
Because of this love and Joy can not last.
  Smiles and laughter a rare thing to see ,
How I miss the way it use to be.
  We have become helpless and tolerant to unjust,
As we watch our hopes and dreams turn to dust.
  Discouraging words is all I am hearing anymore,
A little kindness and support would help for sure.
  It's sad as I sit here and see how we have all changed,
What makes it worse is that we are the blame.
  How to fix all  this and get us heading straight,
There is a way but fear it might be to late.
  If only we would take more time to pray,
It wouldn't be long before we found  our way.
  Becoming cold and heartless is what I've always feared,
I pray for our Lord to take us all away from here.
  Fill our hearts with love and joy again ,
We will follow you Lord forever Amen.

Seed of Birth

Moments to Reflect
Seed of Birth
After a summer shower I watch the wonders unfold Gods truth is being shown. His love for all shall be known to all who have eyes that can see. The miracle of life that is a delight to behold can be seen in a drop of rain on the end of a leaf. Sparkling like a diamond in the light, more precious than gold, a secret is told. The water of life, without it we cannot go on the earth would be has dry has a bone. A desert: a waste land as hot as Hades and not fit to be called home. The water of life He is known. 
The air so sweet and clean the breath of life He has been called. A blessing from the father it is a Gift given to us all. When the air can been seen it is unclean and in this state I call it satans breathe, oh so foul and within it only death can be found. 
Flower and trees, grass that is so green that there is not any artist in the world that could paint a more beautiful scene. Concrete streets and black top parking lots; progress is what it is called…maybe not. An eyesore, mans’ master piece his legacy, beauty it’s not. 
Like a spring rain or after a summer shower; new life does salvation brings. Like the morning dew shining like tiny jewels, in the sunshine they do glow.  Flowers blooming and life a renewing, with Jesus this is how salvation goes.
Rain can be seen as the world being baptized and cleansed, purifying it of mankind sins. This is a fresh beginning but it not at its end it only truth starts when you ask Jesus to come in.  
After a gentle rain shower our God reminds humanity of His power and His promise: rainbow in the sky a wonderful, magical miracle, truly a delightful sight. His signature written in the sky, proof that He tells no lies; never again with water will He end the world that has bought to Him so much pain. His tears of sadness, never again will the world end with rain. 
The evil one try his best with his temptation and his tests to cause us to die and never to rise; humanity he do hate want to take all with him into that fiery lake. These are the tools of his trade war and strife adding in a touch of worldly lust doing his best to kill our trust in the Lord who has given us so much. The spiritual war is what we are in do not fall for satan schemes. Heaven or hell which one will it be? Like the sun gives life to flower, the Son gives life to all who follows. He who is free is free in deed.
Christ the savior God did send, it shows us that satan cannot win. Like a summer day after a spring rain new life will begin. He will pardon us of all our sins but you must ask him to come in His forgiveness know no end. Open your heart and let Him in then and only then can you win. In Him salvation is guarantee and a new life can begin; so you must choose Heaven or hell where will you spend eternity in? 
God our Father gave His Son to the world so that we would have a path to the truth a light to shine in the darkest of time. Allow His attributes to shine forth you do not would to lose your soul. Before time ever begin He love us, will you not trust in Him sight unseen, the One who gives all life meaning?
All it takes is faith to bypass that fiery lake, because tomorrow is not promise and another sunshine you may not see. Time is on no one side, so do not go chasing rainbows you cannot fly. Keep what real in your mind the reality is sin must die. God give His Son to pay a price that He did not owe, the cost was high, but gift that is given for those who believe; is to be by His side, salvation is free are you ready to receive?
Summer shower and gentle breeze,
Golden flower and dew drops of leaves.
Soft green grass beneath your feet.
                    The only thing sweeter is than life is living with Jesus for all eternity.

Divine paradigm of Heavens' regime

Dimensionless boundaries seem to please
Till the existence of some soul finally cease
The modern world registers human reach
Technology still humble to break its peace

Heaven made of splendour beyond we think
The journey to space gave imagination a hint
Shine of stars brightest to make eyes blink
No one can capture the glory of it all in print

Saints call it Garden of Eden with Holy spring
Wish to be its part once the death bell rings
A place of rebirth where blessed souls sing 
Joy ride of heaven charity is thought to bring

Scientists research on subjects they are keen
Delve into the universe to see heavenly scene
Galaxy and stellar remnants as heaven deem
Unearth some life at Moon is the basic theme

Ah! Is it all heaven as Humans believe and speak
Then why the elemental explanations still weak
The kingdom of God is at transcendental realm
Universe caress it as the possible Holiest Place.

Accessible by humans after virtuous living days
Lightened by “Serene Stars” , guided by Milky Way!
Nurtured by “Mild Moon”, good errands pay
Rekindling positive hopes the shining Sun’s rays…

O’ Heaven – an abode for man’s final destination
Showers love to all without discrimination
“Execute good” thus embraced by all religions
Looked after by God and all its manifestations

“Seamless Heaven” spreading far its feather
Inexplicably wondrous like the womb of Mother!
Scientific notations only space travels can gather
For divine sessions – Just be true to family and nation
Spiritual Sight will be gifted in afterlife
To feel the truth of nature….ever and later….

What If Christmas Never Came


 UNSUPPORTED CODE What If…   Christmas Never Came???

What if Christmas never happened?  
What if Christmas never came?
Things around here would be different! 
It wouldn’t be the same!

What if the baby Jesus was never born in a manger?
Mankind would be in serious trouble. We’d all be in danger!

If the baby Jesus wasn’t born.  There would be no nativity.
We wouldn’t be able to display this during our “festivity.”

It’s almost like this now! 
 It’s an “ever increasing business.”
It seems like nearly everyone wants
  “Christ out of Christmas!”

Why does it seem like Christmas is 
 losing it’s true meaning?
The very words; “Merry Christmas,” 
seem to be quickly disappearing!

Many say; “Happy Holiday.”  
They worry they may “offend.”
Having a “holiday” without Christ….  
Once again!

We need to put Jesus Christ back into 
our CHRISTmas season!
He is what Christmas is about!  HE is the very reason!

May we all take some time to rejoice in our savior’s birth.
May there be shouts of JOY!  From the corners of the earth!

Let’s not take Christ out of our joyous celebration!
We need him so much right now! 
 All over this great nation!

May we bring to him a heart of love
 for everything he’s done.
As we bring honor to Christ.  God’s precious son!

May we continually offer to him a heart filled with praise!
Not only at Christmas time…  But all of our days!

If Christ Came Today

If Jesus came today...
Would you join him!
Or would your lifestyle
simply annoy him?

If he came...  Are you ready to go?
Is he the lord of your
heart and soul?

Would he find you looking
for his coming?
What kind of follower
have you been becoming?

Hopefully a follow of Jesus,
you’ve already decided!
A mansion for you, in heaven,
has been provided!

The king of kings and son
Of God is he!
And wants to take you!
For all eternity!

Won’t give him your faith
and trust in him?
Won’t you give him your heart?
And love him?

His coming could be today
or tomorroe!
You don’t want to be missed!
And be filled with sorrow!

Jesus is the gate to heaven above!
You can be filled right now!
With his mercy and love!

Won’t you join Jesus?
There’s alwaysl room!
He’s coming back!
And very soon!

The Awaiting Gates

Careful of the things you think, do, or say,
Study His word and give Him daily praise.
He will come quickly in the clouds one day,
Don't be left behind, don't be made stay.

Two gates ARE waiting in the everlasting end,
Those without His word awaiting is Hell fire, torment, and pain.
Ask for his mercy with his heart all can be mend,
Those who accept God there's a Heaven waiting words cant fully explain.

A supernatural God can make many wonderful things,
Walking on golden streets next to a crystal sea.
All around you voices, angels, even flowers sing,
So get God in your heart that's the heavens gate key.

Angel's Holiday (Part One)

My Angel Bob is on vacation
That is my predicament and situation
You see for a few thousand years
Hundreds of souls have been in his care
Millions of prayers he sent to Above
Always watching with quiet love
Bob is a Class C angel in 9th Heaven he dwells
You know the one next to Hell
Works all day and through each night
While the demons and devils mock him in delight
He tries real hard to earn his wings
He was up for really important things
Once he was called upon a task so great
But he overslept and he was too late
It seems there was this virgin girl in Israel
An immaculate birth to her he was to reveal
But oversleeping he wasn't able
So God sent down the boastful Gabriel
And than there were these walls of Jericho
Knock them down with a single blow
And than if by choice he lost his voice
So God sent down his thunder
And the great walls fell under
Poor Bob left out cause he couldn't shout
And remember the evil of those two cities
Sodom and Gomorrah a sight not for my pretties
Fire and brimstone he was suppose to rain down
But instead in his pail full of water no orders to drown
So the glory again goes to Gabriel to boast
He burnt those two cities to crispy toast
Back to 9th Heaven on a ladder he must climb
While the demons of Hell mock him in rhyme
Poor Angel Bob even Bill the silly has wings
It seems he helped Joseph intrepid a Pharaoh's dreams
From Class C to B he roused rubbing it into poor Bob's nose
You see Bob was to deliver Joseph's coat of true blue
But he stumbled into a rainbow and dyes it of every hue
Joseph was sold into slavery by jealous brother's schemes
All Bob could say is I hope the boy has dreams

Whispers of Light

I was in darkness, terrified, trying to find my way
I could see nothing but black, no sign of day
There was nothing below me, yet I stumbled over my own feet
I fell to my knees and cried, thinking Satan had me beat

I screamed, "God! Why won't you rescue me?"
I heard him say, "Do you not have faith to believe you can see?"
My heart sank and a tear trickled slowly down my face
"I thought I did, Lord. I guess you should let me die in this place."

I heard God smile, and he he said he loved me even though
I forgot that in this world, we reap what we sow 
Then I stood up straight and saw whispers of light
I ran to the Master, he had given me sight

God's Writing On the Wall



There was a city of Babylon whom
King Belshazzar ruled...
Till that one night, when he became “fooled.”

“Eat drink and be merry.”
Was the motto of the day!
But God had something else, he wanted to say! 

The finger of God reached down
And wrote on the wall!
The prophet of God told the king, 
his kingdom would fall!

The king panicked and later that night…
His kingdom fell…  Without a fight! 

May this be a lesson and a warning to us today!
We need to listen to God!
And what he has to say! 

Our country may “enjoy”  it’s wickedness and sin!
But one day soon!  It will
be coming to an end!

Won’t you allow the writing of God,
to touch your heart’s door?
It was for me and you, that our savior died for!

God loves you more, than you’ll ever know!
He came to earth to redeem your soul!

Humility

I find it odd that as soon as I asked for forgiveness for my sins
they all came back on me - tenfold.  My seemingly 'bad' luck was caused
only by what I did to others against the will of the Lord.
When I honestly repented for the wrongs I had done, 
I didn't ask for ev'rything to go haywire, but that's exactly what happened,
because I hadn't tried to rectify my behaviors.  I tried to run from them,
and act like I'd ne'er really done anything wrong.  I tried to shield myself
from them behind a wall of lies that only created more lies.
Instead of facing up to what I'd done, and try to fix it,
I thought it would all just go away because I wanted to turn my life around
and be a better person.  I realize now that by hiding behind the hand of the Lord
I only got slapped in the face even harder.  I showed no respect for the laws of God
or the land I live in, so I got blown apart by the bomb I lit so long ago.
It's time I stop running, and face up to what I've done.  Only if I'm willing to do this
will the Lord show mercy on me.  I must apologize, and pay the price -
even if in secret.  Only then will the landslide that I created rush into the sea,
and be squelched by my honesty.  Once I take this step, all will be well again,
and I will be able to live my life in peace, knowing that I have done all I can
to right my wrongs.  And, when I die, the gates of Heaven will open wide,
and accept me unflinchingly.  Then I'll truly know I've been forgiven.

IN THE GARDEN

Unclothed in the morning mist… 
In a garden paradise 
Man and woman walked naked - hand in hand 
Beautifully unbraided in the dawn of the aurora 
Created by the Master… 
The One and only One 
 
Their images opulent- in the clear silence of radiance 
Surrounded by beauty in His palatial gardens 
They stood in naked luster 
Born without blemish or stain 
Until the devil slid along beside them 
Burning their eyes with sin... 
And their bodes connected by rib and clay 
 
Satan silently roared his evil deceit… 
In his shameful hated ways staining forever... 
The color of life 
And the pale ghosts of the future... 
Which would be lost to his guileful diabolical ways 
 
But hope rings eternal… 
For God did not send us out among strangers
He provided us His ways 
To outsmart that imposturous angel
 And for us to blossom… 
In the dust of Adam and Eve’s lust

Will God Accept Me


Will God Accept Me?

I had nothing to offer to God but a life of  shame.
I was embarrassed of the mention of my name

I had nothing to offer to God but “failure.”
I didn’t know if he listened to me prayer?

I had a life that was just falling apart.
I often cried from a wounded heart.

I began to blame myself for things going wrong.
I began to feel like I didn’t belong.

I’d begin each day with a lot of stress and tension.
I didn’t feel any kind of love or appreciation.

Many of my friends began to “leave me behind.”
There wasn’t a single “friend” I could find!

Just when everything was falling around me...
Jesus was there!  His love began to surround me!

“Lord, please help me!” Where the words spoken.
My life was coming apart!,   And was empty and broken!

Jesus reached down and took a hold of my hand!
And told me everything I went through...  He understands!

Day by day he brought to me a peace I never knew!
Putting my life back together was what he wanted to do!

As I read his word, his spirit renewed my mind.
A precious friend in HIM…  I was able to find!

He accepted me! And gave so much more!
He truly is what living my life is meant for!

He is and will always be the Lord for me!
And can do the same for you!  Most certainly!

Jesus Died for Everyone

Jesus Died For Everyone! Jesus died on the cross for you me! So we can be with him throughout eternity. His life for ours… A ransom was paid IN FULL! Through his shed blood, we’re made whole! Upon his head were placed the crown of thorns. Enduring so much ridicule and scorn. The blood from his body as it began to flow. His love for mankind clearly showed! Nails were placed through his feet and hands! The pain he went through, is hard to understand. His life for ours, is what he gave! A way to eternal life, in heaven, has been made! By Jim Pemberton

Evanescent Life

A pawn in hand of circumstance
The serendipity 
We find the answer with a dance
And scorn the apathy 
The efflorescence of our faith
When all has gone awry
Beleaguered by the storm we stay
Safe only in the eye
Yearning for propinquity, we pray
God only knows we try
While some grasp at shadows of a rope
Others hold the hand
A shattered hourglass, devoid of hope
Lies in the scattered sand

THE UNWANTED CORNERSTONE

secrets of wisdom yet to be told,
the fruit of the spirit yet to be shown.
foundation on the brink of success,
fire of inspiration with no limit.
divine intervention with no discrimination,
understanding with divine deeper intentions.
showered by humility and true faith,
with no false pretense of twisted fate.
holding down every lesson,
no matter how it could be a thorn.
focus on a positive drive,
striving with no strife.
always thinking of other's before you,
always linked of trying to atone.
never missing what is important,
going back to first love of being a servant.
never wanting anything in return,
genuine surrendering yet to learn.
remembering Jesus as the only light that bends for us,
for forgiveness comes hand in hand with mercy and trust.
so was the cornerstone that lived to lift up...............

Beyond The Sunset

Whoosh! Like a gust of wind uplifting me,
there's no sad sunset that I see.
Above earth, I'm rising and flying free!

Just for a moment there, the lights flickered out.
But now, bright dazzling sunlight and colors
scatter and flash all over, around and about.

Like a big billowing balloon, I rise and I soar,
floating above earth, and out of life's door.
Up, up, past the clouds, where my loved ones are.
Angels surround me, and heaven's not far.

If this is a dream, don't wake me up, please,
because back into my body would be an impossible squeeze.

This flight I am taking with God holding my hand,
is but a short breath, before I hear heavens welcoming band.

Hallelujah

Hark! He is the most high and holy God
Ave!  the humble young  Christ, hung roughshod
Look at his hands – holding  spiritual  health
Listen to his heart – host of common wealth
Eureka!  how we long for - Haven of hope 
Lo!  the Harbor, when in hell’s hole we grope
Utopia!  heaven - our eternal home
Jesus, the Hunter, the Helper, Shalom!
Amen!  He halts us in the heat of haste
Hallelujah! if you hunger to be graced

My Dad

There are no words that I could say To describe the man I call dad. Many times I’ve tried to write it down To tell of the best friend I’ve had. He’s strong in every walk of life But yet taught us kindness too His love for God runs so deep For us, he prayed would too His wisdom I always come running to In times I feel I have none… For I know his answers will direct my path And the problem will be done! No better Dad on this earth is found Than the man God gave to me For my precious Father in Heaven knew He would be just what we need…. We have seen him as stable as a rock When facing troubled times We have seen him as humble as could be When his gifts out shine He is there for all he sees in need And quick to make things right But will walk away without a word So no “Thank yous” are in sight He taught me that our Savior sees And knows our thoughts and deeds With God we’re blessed, no need for worry He’ll supply our every need. Oh Lord in Heaven touch my Life Make me be more like Dad For his life is a wonderful example of with God, what we can have Love and care for my precious dad Bless his every need Keep him close, always by my side For his precious love I plead! His Life’s the picture of Your love, Lord He has given all to You How blessed I’ve been to call him dad For men like him are few!

Heaven is in My View

Thank you Lord for being with me
Every morning when I wake
The faith I have in you is strong
My joy no one can take

Your love is everlasting
It’s wonderful to me
Your continuous presence in my life
Is there for all to see.

Once my heart was closed to you
Then you opened up my eyes
I bow to all your holiness
When I look up at the skies

I see now why you died for me
For I know you had a choice
My sin you took upon yourself
And for that I will rejoice

You gave me everlasting life
Your word I know is true
For I long to be within your sight
Now that Heaven is in my view.

The Angels Lament

The Screams of the angels will deafen
Those with the conscience to hear
As the weight of millenia fades
So too does the weight of their fear
 
The sun at the crest of the morning
As vast as the lives it maintains
From the depths of the bottomless oceans
To the peaks of the highest mountains
 
                  chorus
There're fewer tomorrows than yesterdays
No promises written in stone
But Lord as I need you, you answer
And I know then I'm not so alone
Lord as I need you, you answer
I know now I'm not so alone
 
Mankind is engrossed in his profit
No interest where nothing's to gain
Apostles of doubt with no prophet
No guide to salvation again
 
As fish in the realms of the ocean
Lost in this sea of despair
While silver is lining their pockets
A Judas will always be near
 
                 chorus
There're fewer tomorrows than yesterdays
No promises written in stone
But Lord as I need you, you answer
And I know then I'm not so alone
Lord as I need you, you answer
I Know now I'm not so alone
 
First money then later comes power
'Tis the flaw in the nature of man
To take but a little's more noble
Than to scavenge for all that you can
 
I Firmly believe in a GOD
A creator of all, good and bad
Who's laid everything here at our feet
Yet we're endlessly making HIM sad

Jesus Whispers Sweet Peace to Me! Jesus whispers sweet peace to me! And has brought life so abundantly! Jesus whispers sweet love to my soul! And has come and made me whole!

Between Heaven and Hell

What shall I do
What shall I do in the meantime
In between this heaven and this hell
Believing in God more than what the people tell
What shall I do
What shall I do in the meantime
Under the sun
Never ending Corruption
In between this heaven and this hell

Between zero year and the end times
I've bidden my time
Smoke and mirrors
A day further
Time goes on
That  light on the horizon
Is just a mirage
Just the glare off a shiny nickel in the dirt
Nothing but Despair
The entire world 
In a state of dis-repair
We march on further
Into the abyss

A day further
Time goes on 
So what shall I do
What shall I do in the meantime
In between this heaven and this hell
Believing in God more than what the people tell
What shall I do
What shall I do in the meantime
Under the sun
Never ending Corruption
In between this heaven and this hell

In God's Hands

I would like to go to sleep now
If you please and would not mind
I don’t think I want to wake up
Because my true love I cannot find.

I have searched the world over
Look all places high and low
But my true love eludes me
And I have nowhere else to go

So my travels and search is over
I just want to lay down a while and rest
I will try to think of one good reason
To wake up would be for the best.

Right now my heart is failing
And my soul is empty and cold
There is no love to keep it warm
And it is feeling alone and quite old.

I have been looking for the kind of love
That I have never known before
I want to know it just one time
Then I would never ask for anything more

But it seems to be the impossible dream
And I am tired clear to the bone
I would like to go to sleep now
And maybe just go home.

I would walk the path to forever
To a place where there is no “old”
I would be in heaven’s glory
Walking the streets of gold

But wishing won’t make it so
And God has plans for me
He will decide my fate
And pick the day I will be free.

So I will go to sleep now
But not find my eternal rest
 That is in the hands of God
And that will be for the best.

Are You Offended By God

It seems like there’s many people becoming “defensive.” As anything of God, is seemingly being “offensive.” People can peddle their smut and filth around. But a cross or nativity? They must come down! People can watch acts of fornication on their t.v. But, talking about God? “Why that’s offensive to me!” People often talk about their constitutional “rights.” Perhaps someone upstairs “turned out the lights!” Its amazing how money is spent getting God “removed.” What is it exactly that people are trying to prove? What’s next? Taking “in God we trust,” off our money? It could happen very soon! I’m not trying to be funny! Think about what’s happening and taking place! We’re told that we can’t pray in public? Or say grace? This whole country is being turned “upside down.” Our very foundations are being “tossed around!” In what’s being pursued as “political correctness…” Has left in many lives… A total weakness! God is being replaced what is “socially appealing.” Much of what’s in our society has no real meaning! A person can marry anyone they want, or smoke pot.. But what the truth of God’s word, can’t be taught? It’s time that we come to God, and totally repent! Before another wasted day we have spent! Sooner or later, God’s judgment will come out! Our lives need to be changed, and cleansed throughout! Jesus is the answer! Our only hope of salvation! We need him now! All across this great nation! By Jim Pemberton

Uplifting power of strength

When the storm hit my nest
I thought of finding my safety as being a must
I searched everywhere I could
Even among the hideouts made of wood

I realised not that the storm was sent on purpose
If negativity does not kill you, what do you get to lose
You gain, rather, on strength
On being able to face the other side of the fence

Whatever does not kill me, makes me stronger
Whatever does not kill me, fills me with deep ardor
Whether it be pain or loss
I shall remain, as the moss

Impassive and faithful to the skies
For their mystery is not made on lies!

Christ Wants to Be With Us


Christ Wants to Be With Us! In all of Christ’ glory and splendor… He died, that I may live with him forever! He came down and lived with sinful men… To one day be the sacrifice for sin!

The price was paid! A way to heaven… Through him… Was made! He gave his life! What more could he give! He’s so patient and willing to forgive! He’s here! And is waiting for you! He offers salvation!

Hallelujah!  I’m on

Jesus is victorious!  
And pushed back the evil tide!

Hallelujah!  Jesus has given

Living for him…  Is the best

HIS policy is FREE!  It asks

Won’t you come?  
And take time to know him?

His eternal insurance is life

“Come follow me!”

I’m thankful to know of the choice
 I’ve made!
A way to eternity, through Christ,

Preparing for Eternal Victory


This world is a wilderness
so dark and desolate
with poverty death and uncertainty
running Christless to it's judgement date

This world promises so much
castles and groves and music sweet
charms dissolves the vision dies
waking to delusion's cheat

Let us escape this world
so to enjoy peace of soul
this be done by trust in God
absolute surrender our goal

So cast our burdens on Him
living under shadow of His wing
believing powerfully on the Lord
staying close to our heavenly King

Jesus Extends A Heavenly Invitation

Jesus Extends A Heavenly Invitation!

Christ has made a way to heaven! You can be with him!
He's done all of this... So that you can know him!

He died on a cross.   A sacrifice has already been paid.
A way for you to be in heaven has been made!

The blood of Jesus is the ticket for a heavenly ride!
With Christ as the conductor, you’re on the winning side!

He is the only way there is!  On a heavenly route!
It’s only through his salvation!  This is what it’s about!

Please come now!  Won’t you accept the Lord’s invitation?
You can, at this moment, have a Holy Spirit visitation!

Time is running out!  Make your time well spent.
This is the time to come before Jesus and repent!

Your life, for his, is the best trade you’ll ever do!
You can be changed, and have your life renewed!

You’re trip to heaven can begin this very day!
Jesus has left his instructions.  Simply trust and obey!

An abundant life with Jesus can certainly begin.
By having a relationship and serving him!

A new life in heaven is available for you and me!
We can be with Christ! For all eternity!

God I Do

I want to honest and tell it true 
God I do not believe in you
I believe that all kinds of faith just fail
Hurt and help life to derail

Of Satan I must say the same
He will not lead me to the end game
No heaven above me no hades below
Yet I live my life with a happy glow

As I think of what my father once said
Makes more sense than things religious led
Do no one a bad turn and show some respect
They may do you a good turn, not you reject

I try to live life with tolerance for all
I know some reading this will want to call
Me all sorts of names and deny my feelings
As their love for god is oh so appealing

I do not think their wrong to have their belief
I am sure at some times it gives them relief
For me it simply is not the way to go
I just want this out so that they all will know

No devil no god no heaven no hell
No pagan idols no toll of the bell
When I go I will take with me what I brought
To dust ashes scattered, taken with me nought

Calling

Calling

Father God is calling
He’s calling you by name,
He’s calling through confusion
And He’s calling through your pain

He’s calling through your loneliness
And through your sorrow too,
Father God is calling
He’s calling out to you

He calls through the destruction
He calls you through your shame,
His call cuts through the wreckage
And wipes out every stain

His call is not mistaken 
For any earthly sound,
And all the lost that heed the call
Will then become the found

For when the Father calls you
His call will not relent,
His call continues, tireless
He calls you to repent

God’s call brings down the mighty
God’s call lifts up the meek,
But do not be mistaken 
God’s call is never weak

His call lifts up the feeble arms
And strengthens trembling knees,
Turns cowards into mighty men
His call sets captives free

Now you don’t have to listen
It’s up to you to choose,
But turn your back – ignore His call,
You’re guaranteed to lose

God’s call can heal your sickness
His call can make you well,
He’s crying out to save you
From eternity in hell
This call can make you holy 
And lead you into grace,
He calls you to his throne room
And meets you face to face

Father God is calling
Through all that you’ve done wrong,
His call will break your aching heart
And place inside a song

His call can be a still, small voice
Or frighteningly loud,
God’s call lifts up the humble,
And humbles all the proud

Now what will your decision be?
What exactly will you do?
For Father God is calling,
He’s calling now for you.

You Know Me Like No Other

There is a place where no one can go, yet you have met me there.
You have lifted me and loved me when no one else would dare. 
I was lost deep with in the baggage of my burdened life,
Falling, failing trudging along in this deafening strife.

Still you touched me in my need, my heart and saddened soul did weep.
You nurtured, loved, and stayed with me, my brokenness you did keep. 

When the day is torn and a mess my life seems,
In your arms gently I fall, with all my dreams. 
You caress my aches and warm the cold in me,
You tell me all will be well and trust in thee. 

Though you are so far away yet in my soul I find you,
I see a work glowing and growing, happiness a new. 
I long to be in your presence each day where I must be.
And you wait for me with longing hoping that I see.

You want me to see that more than this you love me,
To give your life willingly so I can be free.
Free to love and free to give just the same to you,
Make my life a greater gift that’s what I will do.

You have touched me forever and changed my very heart,
I know that you’ll always be mine we shall never part.
It seems that your presence at times is so far away,
That is when my heart it does cry, for that future day.

A day that will bring us together forever and always…

Deadly Sins

Pride, deadly sin number one 
Its blind for it will outdo your
Life with vanity. When pride 
is around it’s unseen but it 
comes only when you win. 
Pride is bitter  And unkind
for it will keep you trapped
within. 

Greed makes you do evil 
deeds. Lots of heart it tears
and to good it never leads. 
It comes with desires you 
don’t need. It’s deadly sin
number two that imposes
you to want everything that
you see.

Envy is inside the souls of
many it seems relish and 
friendly that comes when 
you succeed but it’s a 
jealous friend with devilish
thoughts. Envy is deadly sin
number three so be careful 
it’s a fruit of the poisonous 
tree.

Wrath is a burning fire inside
our veins that never dies but 
when it’s time for it to rise its 
shows in our eyes. Until it’s done 
its job it never fades. Wrath is 
deadly sin number four that’s 
always there waiting quietly 
to explode.

Lust is the reason we survive. 
It’s deadly sin number five. 
We all crave for it and when it 
Creeps upon us we misbehave.
Subconsciously we’re slave to 
lust gradually it drives us to 
our grave. 

Sloth, call it laziness but 
when it’s around there’s no 
growth and nothing gets done 
Its deadly sin number six that
won’t be fixed and it’s hard to
get rid of. 

Gluttony forever we take for 
granted we have everything 
we need but we wish and
demand for everything in 
our planet even if some things
are not wanted. Gluttony Is deadly
sin number seven that prevents us 
entering into the gate of heaven.

You're Important to God

You’re important to God!  And he knows it!
He wants to be with you!  His word shows it!

Your life belongs to God!  Yes it does!
He died for you!  It’s you that he loves!

Your life is precious of God!  Yes it is!
He wants to be with you, each day you live

Your life is just a heartbeat away!
From allowing God to change you today!

Your life is but a brief moment in time!
Won’t you take time for God?
  So merciful and kind!

Your life can be touched this very hour!
By God’s love and healing power!

Your life for his!  A choice can be made!
This is beautiful!  And worth the trade!

HIS life brings peace and hope within!
The beauty of him, forgiving your sin!

HIS life for yours, is what he gives in exchange!
You can find all you need, in HIS sweet name!

2010 - Miss You A Lot Dad

It breaks my heart
To think and say
That you beloved dad
have gone away
Far very far
From your loved ones
For your time in this world 
Was over and done

I miss your loving
And caring smiles
I miss your hugs
And walk for miles
I miss your hands
That you always rose
To bless our lives
With prayers and grace

I love you dad
And pray for you
May God open the door
Of heaven and hue
And fill your path
With the shine of bliss
More than we can
Ever for you wish

I hope and pray
From God who is dear
To keep you safe
Under His bliss and care
And wish one day
We meet in heaven above
Under God's treasure of
Unaccountable care and love.

May Your Soul Rest In Peace Dad.
I love you a lot and will always miss you.

Awaiting God

You have given me my name, and you’re the only one to love me.
 You are my father, better than life and, stronger then iron
 You called me your son and spoke to me your word.
 It is so beautiful; I couldn't, but memorize and write it down. 
Publish it and call it holy.
Yes sir, it’s the bible. Guidance to our reconnection to perfection,
But none can be perfected.
 Imperfectly advertising an answer that's not yet answered,
 But consumed. 
Faith is you, and we praise for answers
 Hidden replies are your solution. So we wait for the night,
Where you take us all away. 
That is why, therefore "in God we wait, and trust".

A Dreamless Tree Dweller

Swaying. Dancing. Let me carry you.
Dance for me. Dance for me. Dance for me.
It's beautiful how you hold on so tight, but reach so far.

Up and Up and Up.
Begging sunshine and starlight and moon beams to fill your cupped palm.
We' can sip from it together but we both know you'll never be satisfied
Until your silver leaves can dance to the symphonies of singing constellations.

The diamonds sprinkling down your face would look like tears.
But you, and I? We both know this isn't real. Put away your fears
And dream for me. Dream for me. Dream for me


And please darling, Let us never wake.

God's Heaven

God's Heaven
Written by Adam M.
Snow

A vision splendid of
the Heavenly scene,
filled my mind with
an image so clean:
the purity of the
road from which I
walk,
beyond the pearly
gates so pure and
white;
brighter than the
sun's brightest
light,
where the saints
goes to flock.

Awestruck was I,
with bright colors
so new;
beyond everything of
this earthly hue.
They glowed from the
flowers in eternal
bloom;
no death is seen, no
weltering of a rose;
true beauty only God
could compose -
with great
fragrance, oh
Heaven's perfume.

Oh the Heaven's
perfumes,
intoxicating scent;
so greatly with
love, Heaven's
intent.
Entwined with the
sounds of the
Heavenly choir;
great melodies with
angelic boasts.
And out of the
mouths of the
highest Heavenly
hosts,
singing with voices
of fire.

Oh the tunes of
Heavenly chorus
great,
flowing with love
and overflowing the
gates.
The power's so great
I fall to my knees,
I cannot help but
join in to sing,
(O' great is Thy
forever King -
great is Thy Maker
of peace.)

And suddenly there,
in crystal
sunlight's glow,
stands all those
dear ones we always
loved so.
I see my father
staring back at me;
my father whom I
lost in mid bleak
December.
Oh the treasures I
will remember,
like the beauty of
Heaven's seas.

As I see him, as
young as I;
no tears in Heaven,
still I wanted to
cry.
Never thought I
would see him once
more.
My father, my friend
is he -
a different man,
cancer free;
still my father
since the days of
yore.

Such great gift that
God has given me,
a vision of this
soon coming beauty.
A land so great for
a few yet so many;
the resting place at
the end of my life,
to lay down in peace
at the end of all my
strife.
I wait for Thee, O'
God, I wait for
Thee.

Heaven, H311, And Here

On the ground is where I lay and gaze into the sky, 
you're not supposed to question God but Lord I ask 
You why,

do recent world events effect the way that people 
live? Why some can't find a job to earn the cash to 
feed their kids.

A thorough explanation is the thing that I seek most, 
my mind is so intuative and I don't mean to boast,

but if there is a scheme so grand I need to ascertain, 
the reason why my people choose to cause and live 
with pain.

The birds that fly to Heaven now fall down from out 
the sky, the world is going crazy with the simple 
question why,

do fish that swim amongst the sea now wash up on 
the beach? What lesson, if there's any, are You really 
trying to teach?

The speculation brewing up by some? It all 
depends, the world and ev'rything we know, that 
soon it all will end,

the question we must ask ourselves before the earth 
is gone, is have we as a people earned the right to 
journey on?

The proof is in the pudding, look one way and back 
around, You'll notice that a lot of folks are napping 
underground,

through no fault of their own they live their days with 
gloom and strife, til someone with a gun arrives and 
BOOM, there goes a life.

I understand that some Dear God exist along the 
edge, of Heaven H*ll & Here, they walk the wire to 
get ahead,

the balancing is worth it, that's what gets into their 
head, the surface though is highly waxed which 
means one slip, they're dead.

The thing that gets me most of all is how we treat 
our kids, they shouldn't have to suffer with the evil 
that we live,

I see them as the future not to quote Ms. Houston's 
song, a sentence of eternal H*ll to those who do 
them wrong.

I think I'm just concerned Dear God if we are on the 
path, of righteousness forever in a world that 
everlasts,

myself I'm far from perfect but I do hope to achieve, I 
thank You God for list'ning don't give up on us, 
believe.

My Shepherd

I was but a little lost sheep, 
who laid down by the river to sleep.
My Shepherd walked across the water, 
to rescue me for keeps.
He picked me up when I faltered
and washed my sins away.
He made me white as snow, 
with the blood he freely gave.
He is more precious than gold, 
for he died on the cross for my salvation, 
so that I may bow before God in humble adoration.

Rainment Of Heaven

The sun cascaded upon that emrald city,
as I saw a heaven that was so pretty.
I envisioned Jesus sitting on his throne,
the path that led to him was of ruby and stone.
I saw his face for the very first time,
as the angels rang bells with an angelic chime.
His face was everything I'd imagined it to be,
so kind and gentle and full of grace.
I knelt down before him to worship his name,
I felt the power of his glory I so boldly exclaimed.
The skies in the heavens were pastel in color,
like the most dazzeling scene, a scene like no other.
I never before whitnessed a love like this,
the very core of my soul I experienced nothing but bliss.
With angelic music that filled the air,
I stopped in awe and had to stare.
Their wings were pure and white as snow,
as their face aluminated a heavenly glow.
I saw my mother who had passed away,
just as I remembered her when we used to pray.
My tears streamed down like rain on my face,
the bond still between us that time did not erase.
The lord had blessed me as my heart filled with grace,
so thankful to live here in this magnificant place.

Questions

Have you ever stopped to wonder,
Just what it's like up yonder?

Where God presides and no one hides,
Is it Harps and clouds asunder?

When this mortal coil is cast,
is your spirit free at last?

Is it heaven that you seek,
Wings and harp to play?

Or have yo been so foolish,
As to go the other way?

Border Crossing

Dying is like border crossing,
That's what my dead uncle told me,
Being a ghost is like that time
He spent a year in Canada.

Your last breath is a passport if
Dying is like border crossing,
The last beat of your heart a mere
Flutter in the vast universe.

Saint Peter will greet you at the
Pearly turnstile in heaven if
Dying is like border crossing,
Demons will frisk you and find sin.

You will plead the blood of Jesus,
All those sins will be forgiven,
Pete will say, "Welcome to heaven,"
Dying is like border crossing.

When I Think of Heaven

When I Think Of Heaven…
I think of heaven and what a beautiful place it must be.
An opportunity to be with Jesus for all eternity!

I think of the billions that have gone on before me.
And realize that Christ has made a way for me!

Through Christ’ death on the cross, a way was made.
Because of his blood, the price was paid!

Jesus affirmed a life with him, through his resurrection!
Because of him, anyone’s life can be in a new direction!

HIS direction leads to a glorious gift of salvation.
He’s here now, and offers a heavenly invitation!

Whosoever will, let him come and receive life eternal!
Through Jesus, anyone can be written in heaven’s journal!

The promise of a mansion in heaven is for all to receive!
All can put their faith in Christ…  And simply believe!

Jesus loves us much more than we can ever know.
And has planned an eternal home, for the soul!

Blessed be HIS name!  For the new life he has given!
He offers to all mankind a NEW way of livin’!

Through Christ, the gates of heaven are open…
And through him, death’s grip has been broken!

Heaven is a wonderful place!  Please don’t miss out!
Read the Bible and find what it’s all about!

Autumn years of his life

I lately saw that elderly man this Sunday
He says he travels to my town everyday
In his 80’s he appears feeble
His reedy bones are seeable
This old chap is thin as a stick
I find him so polite, I call him a brick
He looks like a parched tree without fruits
His body tremors and dying his roots
His grey hair looks neat and smart
But his wrinkly face looks swart
He keeps walking at a snail’s pace
Unlike us, he’s not part of this rat race
He has no one to live for
There is no one he can die for
I don’t know where he goes everyday
I don’t know what is he searching for
Ohh old man you’ve outlived your family
You now look older than the hills
You too should depart this life peacefully
You don’t deserve this agony 
and desolation anymore.

Won't You come In Jesus' Name

Won’t you come in Jesus’ name?
And allow him to remove your shame?

Won’t you come and bow down before him?
And give him your praise? Worship and adore him?

Won’t you come?  Your name, he’s calling!
The time is now!  There’s no need for “stalling.”

Won’t you come, and let him refresh you!
He wants to change and really bless you!

By his blood, your sins can disappear!
His love for you is very evident and clear!

By his word, you can be made brand new!
You can be changed, and totally renewed!

By the time this day is over and ended…
Your life can be forgiven and “amended!”

By the time you may  feel like you’re alone…
Why not invite him to be the lord of your home!

By the time you think about how you’re living…
You can receive all, that God is giving!

Come one and all!  And sit at Jesus’ feet!
Only his love can make your life complete!

Another day (2012)

Darkness, thick that feels like water
People’s scream’s as if great slaughter
Choking you at the back of your throat
Yearning for light to write a poetry note

Eyes, ears, taste, smell, touch, no longer in use
Blackness disables them in its destructive pursuit
Fires light as they crave for the light
Darkness quenches it with an ever black night

Some drive making accidents panicking on their way
Searching for the part where there’s light in the day
They look up in a hope that the stars may break through
But they chock, they gasp they fall and they spew

They crawl, they hungry, they start to eat each other
Brother eats brother, father eats son, daughter eats mother
Looking where they think heaven is, crippled and bent
Cursing God in the hope that their torment will end

They think through the insanity that this must be hell
Their bodies begin to blister, pain and swell
Just another day in 2012 they must face
For the love of God is no longer as he removed his grace

They should consider this heaven and not hell
For after this hell is worse and for eternity they shall dwell

One starry skied night, I lay in the grass
Reflecting on relationships, people of years past
And then I see her: walking down heaven's steps
The memories rushed back, as if she never left
My eyes tear up, and I tell her "I miss you"
Her smile illuminated the night, and replied "I miss you too"
I asked "Do you hate me for how things ended?"
She answered, "We're all human: maybe thats what God intended"
I explained that I regret all my mistakes
She chuckled as a tear trickled down her face
She told me "I've never been more proud of you
I sometimes wish I could leave heaven for you"
I held her hand and looked into her angelic eyes
I had to ask, "Did you think I was different from other guys?"
She said "With you, there were no other guys
You were, and always will be, my everything
Although I know, you'll probably call some other lucky girl your everything
I came see you to let you know I love you"
I replied "I love you too"
This moment couldn't be true
I said, "Could you stay with me forever?"
She replied, "No, but you could talk to me whenever
Heaven's not too far away
I promise you'll be okay
Not only is God watching, I'm watching you too
Just know your in my heart whatever you do"
The stairway to heaven appeared, she said "I have to go"
I beckoned for her to stay, but I had to let her go
Before she departed, she gave me a kiss
I cried, but I smiled; I needed this
I watched her take step by step
I could feel her leaving; breath by breath
My soul then came to terms with her time limit
She'll always be mine; body and spirit.
<3


In case you're wondering, the "she" i'm referring to is my ex-girlfriend Jonera Auriel
Raymond, who was killed (along with her brother) by a drunk driver on March 20, 2008.

Power of GOD

The abundant power of GOD
All were created with HIS word
He sent his only Son 
To save us and glory to come
He yielded up his life
and was buried in our sight
Not long he could sleep
Resurrected so we could believe
And again the Power of GOD was seen

He is the LORD of heaven , death and hell
and by-and-by we shall know that HE shall come
On fiery clouds and wings of wind
Appointed Judge of all mankind
Jesus , is the wisdom of GOD
That's the power of My LORD
He planned the way of salavation 
He devised the system of atonement & substitution
He laid the foundation of the great plan of Salavation
This is the Power of GOD
This is the Wisdom of My LORD

He built the Heaven by HIS wisdom
and sent Jesus from HIs kingdom
Wisdom of GOD is in CHRIST
Power of GOD is at HIS RIGHT
Miracles happend  and was glorified
The lame man leaping 
The deaf man hearing 
The dumb man Singing
The dead was rising
Power of GOD was always so shining
Bow before him, desire for him
Crown him , crown him ,he is worthy of Crowning
YES, Power of GOD is living 
Follow JESUS for HE is finally Coming !!!!

My brother why do you cry?
I m still here, with you even if you slip and fall,
I will pick you back up shed my blood for you so you mite live forever. My child please except me. Come just as you are. I will fill your cup. The tears and pain will be no more. 
Your heart will rejoice at my amazing grace, that you have found in my love. So my brother cry no more because God is standing at your door. 
The journey home is a narrow road sometimes hard to travel.
But heaven is worth any trail that we may come against.
Trouble we face in life, for the love of God is don’t to much.
He says I wont but nothing on you that you can’t bear.
We have a promise of a heavenly home, where we will thirst no more, or shed another tear.
We  will see Jesus the one that die for us.
By coming in this world to die, so we mite have a eternity life
in heaven above.

Heaven

Heaven is there any such place?
There has to be something 
in all that empty space
The space above the clouds
where it's always bright
and all your troubles are out of sight

Heaven is exempt from
all the dark clouds
God never lets them in,
they're not allowed.

Remember the peace you 
longed for here on earth?
In heaven is where it
finally gives birth.

It's really beautiful 
way up there,
everyone lives without a care
No more depression,
no more sorrows
no more worries about 
your tomorrows.

Now comes the hard part,
What do we do?
When will our time on
earth be through?
What if heaven sounds so great,
we absolutely just can't wait?
Can we shorten our time
and help God along? 
Or would that be doing
something wrong?

If there's a heaven
then there must be a hell
and God might not 
take it too well
If we shortened our own time
and tried to help him out,
giving him one less person 
to worry about.

Would he damn us to hell
because we couldn't wait?
Or would he forgive us 
and open up the gates?
Would he understand
what it's like here on earth
waiting for our peace 
to finally give birth?

Do we take a chance 
and try to find out?
Or do we sit patiently 
and wait it out?
Decisions, decisions
it's so hard to decide
By which choice will you abide? 
it too

where is heaven

                                                           (6/7/11)

My daughter asked me : daddy where is heaven?
I thought about this very carefully
asking myself the same question.
Then the answer came into my mind
Like a bolt of lightning.

Heaven is god, and god is heaven.
When we commit ourselves to god , body and soul
Then we are in heaven,  because heaven is in us.
Yet when we fail to see what is in front of us
And what’s in our hearts, that’s when we are blind.

For god is in our hearts, and heaven is god.
Just look around at all that he has created
Then look into your heart and
see the beauties inside and out.

Why would god create the universe and the world
And not have created a heaven within us.
We are gods most beautiful creation
And he gave us his only begotten son
To show us the way to heaven.

Now many say that heaven is in infinity
and infinity has no beginning and no end.
and hell is here on earth, and some say it’s  below the earth.
Now it is hard to believe that god 
would make this beautiful earth as hell.
And if it was under the earth, where is the fire and brimstone
When we dig so deep into the earth searching for oil.

Heaven is in our love for god while on this earth
Then we go to his kingdom in his total heart
Where it is infinite.

This is where I see heaven my daughter.
It’s in all of us who believe in god.

The Music Of The Spheres

When sunrise spreads its beauty
across the waking sky,
morning melodies I hear,
like celestial music in my ear. 

God must have an orchestra,
He sends to earth each day.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
His band of angels play.

Listen to the sounds on earth.
It's His Glory that we hear.
Listen to all earth sing,
the music of the spheres.

We Needed you and You were there

We Needed you and You were there 
 
We cried the tears You wipe them away 

We were confused and You cleared our hearts

We were afraid and You came right back for us

And held us up and gave us strength 
 
And showed us how You love us
 
You gave us strength to stand against evil

To face the world  in our LIFE with You

You put us up in the light from the dark

So high that we could almost see eternity

You showed us why we need You 
 
We can not believe it's really You

We can not believe it's really true

We needed you  and you were always there
We will never leave You Lord

Because we finally found the One who really cares

You help us  when were wary

When we are lost  You protect us 

You gave us hope  when we were at the end

You turned our lives  back into truth again

You even call us brother and sister

We needed You and You were there  
Thank you Lord for being there
We are now there for You 
AMEN!!

Won't You Come to God


Won’t you seek God with all of your heart? Getting on your knees in prayer is a good place to start! Come close to God and he'll come close to you. His word will be your guide in what you do. Hunger for his righteousness... and be filled! Drawing close to Jesus is what God has willed! He desires an intimate love... more than words can say! Come to him now... with no more delay! Trust him with all of your heart... not your own understanding. In everything...acknowledge him... and heed his commanding! Obey his command to serve with body, soul and mind. Everlasting peace and love you will surely find! His desire for you to know and love him is never ending. Come to him now... please... no more "pretending." Won’t you reach out today… and call on his name? His love for you is forever and will never change! Won’t you allow him to bring joy and pure delight? Please come to him now… Why not tonight?

Steps Away From Forever

Seconds turning to minutes
Minutes becoming those hours
Hours rising and setting into days
Days spinning to weeks

Years greeting me with many birthdays
Still, even one hundred only a flash
Realizing now when I was born
Just steps away from forever

JESUS THE ONLY WAY

JESUS THE ONLY WAY

For God so loved the world that He gave as the atoning sacrifice for sin His one and only Son
There is no other name given under heaven by which we can be reconciled to God He is the 
one
Jesus said, He was the way, the truth, and the life, no one could come to the Father but by 
Him
Neither is there salvation in any other, He is the only Savior who can forgive and wash away 
sin.

He is the one who God spoke of, the seed of the woman that would crush the head of the 
serpent
He came to seek and save the lost, giving His life a ransom for many He calls sinners to 
repent
Those who believe and put their trust in Him, find forgiveness for sin by the blood of the 
Lamb  
He has revealed Himself as Savior, Lord, and God, His children know Him as the great I AM.

He is the mediator that makes the way to God accessible because He became the sin offering
He is the forerunner entering into God’s presence and for us he is now praying and 
interceding
He understands human weakness because He became one of us but He never committed 
any sin  
He faced everything we will face and overcame it all and now He is the way for us to enter in.

He makes God’s throne accessible to all who come in faith believing offering mercy and grace
He gives His righteousness to all who trust in him so we are accepted by God into the holy 
place
To everyone who receives Him, to them He gives the right to be called one of God’s children
For everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved and receive forgiveness of 
sin.
 
All authority has been given to Him by God the Father He is the sovereign ruler over all 
creation
He is the only Savior and Redeemer, who can change you and give your life a total 
transformation
He is coming back one day for His own to take us to heaven where forever His praises will 
be heard
He alone possesses the wisdom and power to perform all He has promised He would do in 
His word.

Dominion

Therein to link the world her seasons with our light distain
made plain the movement through them let her darkness there remain
towards the call of fellowship whose mastery is True
transformation is Just beginning whose personality is made New

Your hand Oh Lord upon them and clothe them as your own
instruction unto diligence till they all be grown
you lead them to the Father and so by him be known
opened minds to understanding all that you have shown

Lord you are and Master of Law and universe
upon the heavens and fields of earth there do you traverse
to collect the sacrifices that to your God do give
those who will lay down their lives so that others therein live

For what is Love but sacrifice so another can have joy
this is the requirement that Jesus disciples do employ
for him they are in service as the God of Loves envoy
those who gain the mastery will be like Jesus a viceroy

They've named them gods through history whose power has been nil
but Jesus demonstrated energy that is never standing still
to gods of gold of wood of stone to truth they draw not near
the requirement of the Love thy neighbor they do not hold dear

Those who pretend at reverence and ritual do fool
who worship not in spirit and truth who are but adversaries tool
upon them bind a heavy burden and stray from shining light
there guide them into a pit and grave of eternal night

For you have finely numbered those who be your own
those whose number can't be counted find the earth as home
and quoth the spirit against those that be gods named
who have fouled the Truth and the God of Heaven shamed

For God has changed from stone children to Abraham
the meek and the righteous ones to inherit the given land
like the rains of Truth from empyrean do fall
the seven spirits of the church have sent out the call

Jah did empty Heaven of the Bright and Morning Star
upon his wings did send the message to collect those near and far
For God himself did offer his own Son the sacrifice
to set us free from sin and guilt and embedded vice

For the fields are ripened and soon the sickle thrust
the angel who can read our hearts those corrupt or just
restless is the beast and his dominion over man
those who worship devils are marked in head and hand

again unable to post whole piece
to finish this ...www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=380015400980

A Star Is Born

A STAR IS BORN					11 23 08



 A star is born in Bethlehem,
The Special On called “The Son Of Man”.
A gift of life from “Father God”
The miracle of love given to all the world.
Mary His mom was amazed by the sight of 
The angel who told of such a thing that night.
Joseph her bethought couldn’t believe the news
Of the gift from Father God to Mary would arrive soon.
The Angel from Heaven was sent back to tell
Joseph about the good tidings were God sent and real.
Then off he went to Mary to ask for forgiveness, to stand by here side
So off they did journey for a very long while,
Until Mary told Joseph that the time is soon to come for the birth of their ‘Love Child”.
One last stop before the downing of the sun, 
A husband and wife gave them refugee for the birth of their Son.
As time passed on word got around that the coming of “The Messiah”
Was in Bethlehem.
The brightest shinning star glowing high in the sky
Gave all believers to know where to find “The Holy One”,
With on questions, asked why.
Three wise men they did stride, to see “The Son Of Man”
Being the first to arrive, full well knowing that 
He is blessed and Heaven sent.

As In the Days of Noah


As In the Days of Noah… As in the days of Noah, there was wickedness in the land!. So shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man! There were many forms of ungodliness that were enjoyed! Until the day of the flood... Then it was all destroyed! Imagine building an ark that took one hundred and twenty years! The labor it took! Throughout the blood, sweat and tears! The people laughed, and thought Noah was “out of his mind.” But soon, the wrath of God, is what they would find! God gave them a chance to repent, but no one would. So he had Noah and his family made an ark out of wood. Noah warned them all, consequences there would be! And warned them of where they’d be spending eternity! Then, the rains came and poured like never before! The people got scared! They couldn’t take anymore! They cried and shouted, “Noah” “please let us in!” “We didn’t believe you, when you told us of our sin!” The door on the ark was shut! God’s judgment came down! Other than Noah’s family, there was no one else around! America’s days of wickedness will be coming to an end! Very soon, God’s judgment will certainly begin! Will you mock the men of God? Who preach God’s word? Or will you live as if, his truth, you never heard? As in the days of Noah, so shall it be at Christ’ return! Will you join him in heaven? Or stay on this earth to burn?

An end to sadness tremendous joy.

A new beginning from the father to

heaven meets earth - in my mind

                
There is a place in my mind, where heaven meets earth
A place in my mind where love gives birth.
A love that’s put into our hearts from GOD above
And earths beauties, like a snow white dove.

Where the two can walk hand in hand
And against evil, they take their stand.
Love and beauty is what is shown
And in our minds, it is known.

Everything in life comes in twos
It is up to us what we use and choose
Heaven and earth, rich and poor,
Evil and good, male and female
This is the things that are real.

And if we use what the LORD provides
We can walk side by side.
It is not difficult to see
That this is the way GOD intended it to be.

The love between a man and a woman
As they walk hand in hand
Laughing, joking, and making plans.

Seeing children playing together.
You tell me ! What can be better.
When an elderly couple can 
still smile at each other
And acknowledge everyone
As their sister and brother.

The mind is truly where heaven meets earth
So let’s enjoy it all, and take it for what its worth.

THE FOUR HORSEMAN

The Lamb slowly opens the scroll,
With seven seals upon it.
He opens only one of seven
but not to read a sonnet. 

When flames shot across the sky, 
The first horseman goes flying by. 
Then the horseman approaches, 
He is white and brazen. 
Sent here to conquer, 
every nation.

The second seal is broken.
The a Red horseman appears.
War and murder is in his eyes,
Soon we all will realize…

The third seal is torn and 
with Scales in his hand.
The Black horseman spread famine,
Across the barren land.

The fourth seal was broken.. 
The wind whipped violently, 
with no remorse. 
Earth stands still 
we all be there, 
As Death rides 
..his Pale horse. 

Following him was Hades, 
the Ancient ruler of hell. 
He came to take our will to live
He came here out of hell.

They will be sent here from our Lord.
They need no introduction. 
They are simply coming here, 
to conduct their given function. 

When the conqueror is conquering. 
And War is close at hand. 
Famine will spread quickly,
across a sinful land.

Then Death will be upon us 
Do you hear him riding near? 
Will you be able to say, 
"I lead my life without fear."

Approaching are the days my friend.
We must stop and take the time. 
To make our lives full and rich.. 
And together we will find…

Happiness is what it’s all about. 
Can't bring those toys with you.
You’ll have no trouble when the day draws near..
God's faith will guide us through.

Terminal worry

As I sit here 
feeling my own pity
selfishly thinking of myself
knowing good and well

cursing brutal words 
wanting to flow from my quill
angry exhaustion filling my mind
yet battered heart slowly continues
to beat upon 
the next morn...

instead of thankfully getting up
getting ready for the gift of this day
instead of being grateful 
instead i turned away

already worrying about tomorrow
about things that have yet to come
instead of trusting You 
to love me enough...

to give me enough strength
for the battles i face

knowing our fates were decided
an eternity ago
by the one holding
times swinging pendulum 

had wings of palest gold
like the sparking yellow
of campfires flame
or a fireplace offering
welcoming warm blaze

his tall staff also of gold
held in strongest hands
see yonder!

through that haze
through fog of white of gray
reminding us of thunderstorms
through warmest 
months of May

mayhap He was a vision
maybe i shall never know
if twas another dream
relief would course through
for He said last eve
tis almost time to go

He whispered with that loving grace
words heard inside my heart
telling me to enjoy this life
for too soon twill be time
to part...

Although i am sure i would love heaven
and i have loved ones there i dearly miss 
can i please stay here awhile longer Lord
i feel i still have plenty to give

my heart is pure 
only meaning the best
through you i will try to reach them
with a gift of words
in which you blessed

On the day you die: HEAVEN'S REALITY

Amongst the living 
I often feel..
that my life 
is..surreal.

Amongst the dead. 
I must beware..
These spirits. 
they follow me 
everywhere. 

They speak quite softly.
They complain they can't see.
The light that holds..
Heaven's reality.

I remind them..
They judged..
They lied..
They hated. 
They repent
and they say..
their life was 
quite jaded. 

I can make them believe..
in our Heavenly Father.
For in life 
they did not..
bother. 

They tell me they 
had not a single purpose.
I say, "It's the fact 
you were here..to 
share with us."

As they start to remember 
their happier days.. 
the light shines through..
The heavenly haze. 

They thank me..
as they walk 
to the light.
I wish them well,
an say,"Goodnight."

One thing I can say
they all wished 
they had..
Believed in our Lord..
Their hearts.. 
quite sad. 

They realized.. 
they were forgiven, 
they become quite humbled. 
Their lives.. 
they saw, had a point..
That is when I mumbled...

"Go to the light..
You've always 
been loved. 
By Our sweet..
Lord above."
If you don't believe..
He will still wait..
for the day..
you renew your faith. 

On the day that you die..
He will make you 
live again.
As long as you..
believe in... Him.

CHRISTIANS

 I'm Melvin, C.E.O. of T.W.I.S.T.,,,which stands for "The Way I See This"...
Here's some facts if you care to listen,
 they're about people called Bedside Christians.
Do they love the Lord?, sure they say so,
 if you notice to church they don't even go.
Step on their toes if you chance to dare,
 that's one sure way to get them to swear.
Then they will holler Lord forgive me,
 and turn around and kill, thinking God can't see.
                (1 John 3:15)
They praise God for an hour or two,
 and then curse out a person when they're thru.
Don't think that there are some I'm missing,
 next come the Creeping Christians.
They tip in after the doors are closed,
 make a mistake and they quickly turn up they're nose.
They're always on the go, never being still,
 trying to get into Heaven on their own free will.
Backslidden Christians I pray for the most,
 they've lost their trust in the Lord of host.
There are a few more I'll give you now,
 the Spirit will teach you to know how.
That's how to live for the Lord Jesus Christ,
 being a Simple Christian is o' so nice.
Bighead Christians think they know it all,
 sometimes they are truly on the ball.
When it comes to their walk it's another story,
 they forget to give God all the glory.
My friend they are quick to tell U what to do,
 and that God will always see you thru.
Problems come their way they begin to grumble,
 and you see them really start to crumble.
Sidewinder Christians go from this way to that way,
 never believing anything for more than one day.
Every doctrine they try to go by,
 not questioning or even wondering why.
They are Sidewinders because they go 
from side to side,
 they are always on the bandwagon for
 just a free ride.
These are the ones I love tho',
 cause they really don't know.
But let me tell you this my friends,
 noone gets to Heaven by having  loose ends.
                 SEE
We walk by faith and not by sight,
 and not by our own might.
May we be blessed to have spiritual understanding,
 so that we aren't living a life so demanding.
We should live lives that are totally shameless.
I've been all of the above Christians at one time 
or another, but I now know how to love my sister
and my brother...

From Darkness into Light

A dark and evil creature
Pursued a man today.
He tried to run,
He tried to hide, 
But the darkness followed him.

He ran down the street,
And around the corner.
He ran up the stairs
And through the door,
Yet the darkness followed still

He shut his doors,
Turned on his lights,
And tried to find some peace;
But even in his lighted house,
The darkness still was there.

“Oh, foul creature,
What can you be,
And why do you pursue?”
For a moment, silence reigned,
Then the darkness answered him.

“I am your sin,
Your dirty deeds,
The things you try to hide.
Your sin cursed soul, is what I am,
The darkness within you.

There’s a price to be paid
For this lack of light.
Eternal fire, torment, and pain
Is the price that you must pay
For this darkness inside you.”

“Oh woe is me!”
The man then cried.
“Your price is much too high!
Is there no other way to pay?”
But the darkness in silence remained.

A knock at his door
Pierced his despair,
And he trudged to it to answer.
There stood a man with a smiling face
For no darkness followed him.

The stranger at the door said,
“I can see,
That you are in despair.
What troubles you?” and the man replied,
“That darkness over there.

He says, I’m doomed,
To eternal fire,
And doomed to eternal pain.
Do you know a way for me to escape
That darkness over there?”

“A man named Jesus,”
The stranger replied,
“The Son of God once came.
He shed His perfect, precious blood,
That darkness to send away.

The price for sin
Was paid in full when
He died and rose again.
His sinless blood can wash away
That darkness deep within.

This gift of love
Is free for all,
It gives eternal life.
Beautiful Heaven can be your home,
A place that darkness cannot go.”

“What must I do?”
The man then asked,
“So this gift I can receive?”
“Call unto God, acknowledge your sin,
Your darkness then confess,

And accept His gift 
Of eternal life,
Eternal death forsake.
His blood will cover all your sins,
And the darkness then will fade” 

“Oh, God,” the man prayed,
“I accept your gift,
Please wash away my sins.
Come into my heart and lead me today,
From darkness into light.

Tears from above

Tears from above
The sky opens up 
A ray of sunshine shines from the heaven above.
No rain round but a felt a drop from above.
God cries a drop of tears for the world today.
Wars here and there. People are dying for no reason at all.
Brothers fighting brothers once more .Blood on the hand of those that kills.
Causes God to cry the tears from above.
Heaven closes to stop the tears.
So the shine can shine another day without tears from above.

Apples Don't Fall Far From The Tree

I want to tell you of my second Love,
Of a churchs' impact from heaven above!
I'd grown up in such a small church.
Yet small groups can make for gossip, and worse.

Not so with Shiloh; it was heaven on earth...!
This icon of community flair was "golden mirth."
'Cause for too many years I'd been handicapped; 
Unfortunately, having wed a controlling rat.

Unworthy, I felt as if in a deep-dark pit.
Hardly would I look one in the eyes-, as I'd sit. 
Though Shiloh's heart and doors were always open,
With all people-types whose hearts were broken. 

Never had I been in a hospital that was a church.
Pure-love poured forth from this people's search.
Out of 2,000 members, one hundred "I fondly knew,"
Many of us would sit, visit, and have coffee too!

You could hear the sounds of prayer down the hall...
Sometimes there was dancing, and we had a ball...!
There, an amphitheatre of seats "led to the front."
When Pastor preached, some thought her too blunt.

You could see Shiloh believers all around town,
Wisdom's principles were of a prototype laid down.
It was great just to see them in the market places,
Healing light-&-love poured-forth from their faces!

Such longing I still have, to see my Pastoral mom, 
Indubitably, her prayers were "to keep me strong." 
Though, before any churches, she married Mr. Right. 
Later her David was born before tragedy's night.

A car accident took her beloved husband home...
For the year she was motionless, she felt so alone.
Her baby was spared, leaving her totally paralysed.
She was only-17, for that year she'd much to realize. 

Miraculously, God healed her and gave her a church.
Maybe she's the 1st. pastor to do so after a birth! 
With 25-revival churches, in all; she was going strong.
Father God has truly "blessed and kept her from wrong."

The Lord God, strong, almighty is in the midst of them.
Training victorious warriors "waging war against sin!" 
So believers went in with peace- and come out with joy!
This place was "so serene" there was no-need to be coy. 

Restoration is the message- for God restores all things.
I was once like a cripple, now I can stand and sing!
God's Dunamis power for wounded Pigeons, now like Doves,
Creates longing in me still, for such fellowship of love.
Such fond memories linger- as "I miss her still..."
Bless you, dear Violet, for caring; when I had no will.

The Glory and the Pit

God is in His glorious home
where no impurity or sin can dwell
that's where the redeemed shall enter
the wonders no human voice can tell

There they shall worship God alone
focused solely on Jesus God's own son
where angels without number sing praises
to the triune God three in one

The place of that horrible pit
where satin and his demons will be
there all Christ rejecters go
never again will be set free

The never ending fire will be ablaze
nothing can stop it's terrible pain
eternity describes it's force and time
hell's permanence marks it's stain

So where will it be for you?
as Jesus arms are stretched open
pleading for your heavenly entry
to run from hell and its gruesome den

Man or Dove 
 
 
CharlaXFabels 
 
GOD is Jesus. A living GOD does not have to frustrate Him self with a man at all 
but he does what a GOD wants and no one can tell HIM anyway. He could have 
done a different planet and never made the man the ADAM. He could have been 
a DOVE and ruled the WORLD of DOVES nothing moving on the surface of the 
planet except food for DOVE. 
John 20:30-31 
 Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which 
are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that 
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his 
name. 
The written word is given not so perfectly it seems the detractors of the Gospel 
will agree the BIBLE has been written by the men and not the DOVE. He does not 
complain of feathers colored wrong he does not jealously assume the plume of 
other birds he never drinks too much or eats too many seeds of grass he never 
wants a different colored shirt of blue upon his back he has feathers mostly gray 
and brown a DOVE is GOD in FORM of FLESH and LOVE. Today eye discovered 
a dove a thing of beauty made in love the GOD most certainly seems to me to be 
a creator capable of form. The feathers around the eye. The way the dove tried to 
see me from the side she turned her delicate head just like a lady in love. The 
feet seemed too large on her for dove but seemed like duck perhaps this dove 
was just malformed an egg in need of more attention in the nest but not the fault 
of GOD. On DOVE WORLD there is one tree where DOVE the GOD does live. She 
preens her feathers and she rules but yet she loves them. When a DOVE dies 
and falls from SKY she moves herself to see just where it lays and then SHE 
Cries a mournful sound in otherwise so pretty of a face she can raise it from the 
dead and send it into Heaven then to live and fly forever no more in need of world 
of food or anything. One day upon the Dove Earth the sky was filled with war the 
demon doves were killing all the poor. They called a halt in vain attempts at 
peace and then a most marvelous thing. The DOVE GOD she flew to high and 
spread her wings in a hurried dive she slammed into the ground at Supersonic 
speed and then she died and then she screamed eye am alive eye hold the keys 
the poor will soon come and live with me and then the SOUL of GOD the DOVE it 
flew to Heaven where it grew to be the JESUS GOD. 
He rules in love. A DOVE,MAN,GOD.

If I Had Known

If I had only known that on that very day
The Lord was going to come and take my baby away,
I would have stayed by his side both day and night
I would have never let him get too far out of my sight.

I would have told him that he was my rock, my joy,  & my friend
I would have reminded him how truly blessed this union has been.
Our two beautiful children whom he loved so much,
Our wonderful marriage that he graced with his touch.

But I didn’t know, for no one knows the day or the hour
When the Lord will come down to pick his next flower.
Thank God he was ready, for he lived his life right,
His soul made a bouquet, good and pleasing in God’s sight.

I will truly miss him, but it is comforting to know
He will reap in Heaven the seeds sown below.
The seeds of kindness, joy, compassion and love
Yielded an eternity with God in Heaven above.

So rest now sweetheart, for you have won your race,
And now you can live forever enfolded in God’s grace.
I truly love and miss you, this I can’t deny
But we will meet again in our Heavenly home on High.

If You Approach Heaven First

            If you approach heaven first, ever so hesitantly
                angels will give you a lift up,
            no rains will soak the soul left up high
                 that we dare fathom where they are up-
            to the point where God touches everything
            in every living thing His spirit forever sings.

            I know you are already there
                 your spirit still exploring and learning,
            being safe in Jesus’s arms (hurting no more)
                 saints kneel down in robes around Him
            cleansed from the eternal spring that healed You
                 paradise there is ready to burst,
            and take all of us with it when we’re ready.

            I know now you are better in heaven
                  by approaching heaven first you’ll let-
            it be possible for souls like mine to climb
                  the stairs of salvation.
            the fruits of your deeds are what remains
            sparing the lives that might have fallen out,
            inspiring me to follow in your prophetic footsteps.

            We are relections in time
                  nothing seems to be real unless,
            I cover my heart with your pain
                  of a thousand crying souls,
            I have met my death before
                  when I saw you fall into darkness
            You did not go alone my dear,
                  my trembling limbs bent like match sticks
            I fell into the abyss of nothing,
                  I did not find you there
            just the remains of a flower;
            brittle and spent into dust
            life is too precious, wasting away.

            If you approach heaven first, ever so hesitantly
                  angels will give you a lift up,
            no rains will soak the soul left up high
                  that we dare fathom where they are up-
            to the point where God touches everything.

Late In the Midnight Hour

I was watching; and apparently he hurt another rookie;
They were sheriff trainees and the one who hurt the other one was crying.
I cried but I couldn’t even tell you why; maybe I could;
But I don’t want to think that hard.
   You don’t see a lot of public displays of human compassion anymore.
   Politically it’s; “beat them down and turn them around”
  “We’ve got our corporate farms; and we’re stocked up with our arms”
   “Come help to keep this country strong.”
I’m not even really dead set against that concept;
I can imagine the degradation we’d all suffer if we were ever beaten.
Somehow I don’t think it would help if you claim you were against violence
And heaven help you if your wife or your daughters are lookers.
   So I cried but; what the hell why can’t everybody be saved?
   I mean why doesn’t God just pull the plug out of the wall huh?
   I mean can an atom be split without electricity?
   How about if it rains on all the oil until it’s rendered non combustible
If we’re going to believe in hopefulness lets save everyone right?
Some of us are going to make it, some of us aren’t;
I don’t like that and it’s a failure from any angle you see it from.
Maybe we’re just a manifestation of evolution and we must perish like the dinosaurs
    So I cried; probably because I wish; but wishes, they don’t
    Fill my mind up like the carnage I see on television; 
    And all those empty promises for change; that we should quit believing.
    I think we waited too long and there’s not much we can do anymore.

                              Rhymes
Father bless the righteous man; and heaven help the Queen;
And save us from the beastly man; that wants to eat our spleens
Give Janice her Mercedes; and clear the purple haze;
And give blessings to the ladies for; they set man’s souls ablaze.
   Standing on the corner; waiting for the man;
   Wondering what he’ll do to me; with this gun held in my hand.
   Dear Michael my arc angel, whose name I also bare;
   Let us fight the scourge of hell; till God takes us all rom there

A Prayer for My Grandson

Will this pain that’s in my heart, Lord will it ever end?
Lord I’ve prayed and I’ve prayed, now I’m lost and need a friend.

The trials and the tribulations I’ve had more than my share,
I need your gentle love, please show me that you care.

It used to be all about me Sir, I didn’t think I needed anyone,
Till you placed in my care Lord, my only grandson.

The problems the lad has Lord, he needs your healing touch,
We’ve taken him to doctor after doctor, Lord I love this child so much.

Lord reach down from mighty Heaven and cleanse him through and through,
You are the Creator, Lord you know just what to do.

Let the voices that he hears Lord, let them be angels sent by you,
Guide him to the path, show him a life all anew.

Cradle all his anger ease his little tormented soul,
Free him from this problem, Father I want Heaven to be his goal.

Father this is my prayer and I’m sincere as I can be,
And I ask all that read this please pray along with me.

Pray for my little Johnny, please pray with all your heart,
Just ask God to please heal him, just give him a brand new start.
                                                God Bless, Ron

Wondering

WONDERING

There are times I look at my life, its struggles and its trials,
And all the ways I failed the Lord along the many miles.
I wonder how the Lord above could still look down and say,
“I still love you, I sent My Son to die for you one day.”
When life for me is over here and I face the Judgment Throne,
I wonder how the Lord could say, “I welcome you now home.
You’re here to stay forever, child, I’ll never cast you out.
I don’t remember sin you did or all the times of doubt.
You see, My blood had covered all the day you trusted Me;
I bore it all that day below upon Mount Calvary.”
So, though I spend time wondering how the Savior could love me,
And though I think so many times and with that logic see
No way that I, a sinful wretch, who knew the right from wrong
Could stray in sin for all those years and wander for so long,
And still be loved, forgiven, too, for sins I did commit,
And hear the Lord then say to me, "I don't remember it!"
I realize God knew it, too, so long ere I was born,
Yet still He chose to bare it all upon the cross that morn.
I may walk down the streets of gold and wonder just a bit
How God could make a place like this and take me there to it,
And I may with my wondering eyes behold that land so fair
And wonder what I ever did deserving to go there.
But quickly will the answer come as I live there above,
The wondering I had on earth was answered by His love!

In Loving Memory

As I lay back in the tall grass
An uncontrollable emotion tears deeply into my heart;
I attempt to understand, "Why?"
Why has God taken one so precious?

Just then, a soft pile of radiant autumn leaves
Forms a plush pillow, and my senses sharpen.
The warm sunshine and a soft gentle breeze
Lovingly touch all that we call life.

Birds in their melodious splendor,
Fly close , and deliver special messages.
Colorful flowers wave gallantly in the wind,
Each having a unique life of its own.

The sound of crystal clear waters 
Carrying crisp and vibrant fallen leaves,
To a distant and Heavenly destination,
Bring fond memories of those we will love forever.

Suddenly, in the midst of floating clouds far above,
Images of those held so dear touch my heart.
And they appear in fond  memories-both comforting and touching.
Only now can I begin to understand, "Why?"

All of these precious souls who we feel we have lost
Are lovingly watching over us from Heaven above,
Helping God create a Heaven on earth,
Enhancing and spreading beauty with everlasting love in their hearts.

Streets Of Heaven, Once Crooked

When God created heaven
Everything was perfect, as can be
Angels were everywhere, but
Lucifer was more beautiful to see

Lucifer thought he could overtake.
Streets of gold now a little crooked,
All the way through.
He had Angels turn against God.
Now, that's where trouble started, too.

Tried to convince others
He'd be taking heaven over soon
God already knew what was planned
Out of heaven, Satan, he threw
All of this followers not far behind

Finally, the streets of gold
Once again were straight
No way would God allow
Heaven to fold.

Jack Ledbetter's Legacy

Many families start out poor, and for some
in life all they want is more and more.
Jack could not read very well, but had
a wife, Nadine, who could, and was
wonderful her place to fill.
She read the Bible, Jack preached GODS word.
They were rich in  GODS love, and read his word,
and listened for instructions from above.
Jack preached for years about GODS love.
Eight children GOD blessed them with,
now three sons who preach GODS word,
and 2 daughters married to ministers.
Several  grandchildren in heaven above.
All eight at one time sang, until all glory and heaven rang.
Twila and Jack to heaven went, and the others are
blest and try daily GODS word to send.
Nadine is 90 and full of GODS love and grace,
no one can ever take her place.
The boys travel and preach  GODS word.
and songs so wonderful you can feel  GODS
love, grace and mercy to be heard.
Grandchildren worship GOD and sing,
and constantly try others to him bring.
What a wonderful family legacy this little
Arkansas Preacher did to this world bring.

Don't You Dare Flunk Heaven

The boss wanted us to sign up for an organ donor card,
It would look good for publicity, Mr. Sanders said,
Next morn, found man in charge, got card - was'nt hard,
But that night, had 2nd thoughts about Godly dead,
After talking to spouse and son-in-law,
If you are called, you should come up, Archie said,
That night, had bad dream about his quick demise,
Driving friend's cab to heaven - foot like lead,
But mad Docs in back, one jerked out liver & eyes,
He too, lost his hands and feet - hey, watch it guys,
After this, had visions of former Earthly domain,
His hands picked pockets, feet ran away from a crime,
He watched his eyes watch porn with a lot of pain,
After this, finally reached heaven - uphill all the way,
Parked, got out - God was there & was real mad that day,
For Arch had not all his organs, which was not Gods' way,
Woke yelling & his spouse put on the light,
You are white as a ghost & sweating - something not right,
Told about his dream, organs, God & mad Doctor men,
You would be scared too, if you had just flunked heaven!

Redemption

Jesus is coming so fall to your knees 
and cry out to The One who can hear all the pleas
of a broken heart and a troubled spirit
which He's quick to heal if we let Him near it.
Our Father in heaven is calling to any who will hear 
that today is the day of salvation and our redemption is near
if we will only open up our hearts so He can come in 
and begin the work of changing us into the image of Him
So if you hear God calling out to you 
but you're not exactly sure what you should do,
think about The One they say the Jews crucified
and know; without His own consent, He wouldn't have died,
because He is God who came in the form of man
to fulfill the greatest part of His divine plan;
with power over life and death given only to Him,
He could choose to lay down His life...and take it up again.
He poured out His blood to buy us back from hell
which our father Adam sold us to on the day that he fell.
He cried,"It is finished." while He hung on the cross
because The Way had been opened to redeem all the lost.
The Day is coming and the Hour is near 
when all the world will know what it is to fear
the wrath of God towards those on the earth
who have laid up their treasure in things of no worth;
having turned their backs on the God of mercy and love,
will find there is no place for them in heaven above.
God gave His Holy Spirit to us; to comfort and teach
and fill us with His power so we could go out and preach 
about the Blood of The Lamb which can cleanse us from all sin 
while the power of His Spirit keeps us from walking therein.
He loves us so much, He wants no one to perish
into the awful pit of hell where none will cherish
the wonderful work our Father in heaven has done
through the awesome grace and mercy of Jesus Christ, His Son.
Holy,Holy,Holy is the Mighty Lord of hosts
of Whose righteousness no one can claim or boast,
for it is only by grace through faith that we can stand
before the Great and Terrible God who holds the world in His hand.
All our own righteousness is as a filthy rag
before the righteousness of God so none can brag
about the good deeds they've done in the field
because on the Day of Judgment all will be revealed.
Glory be to God; the Father, Son, and Spirit,
Who chose to come down to this cursed earth and heal it
from the curse of Satan which was laid on us all
since that fateful day in Eden... when Adam took the fall.

The Happy Hour

have you ever heard of the happy hour where people mingle, eat and dine
the happy hour when people congregate to relax and from their work unwind
a time to replenish, to refresh and restore one's troubled mind
yet it's only a temporary stop gap in the overall scheme of time
but the happy hour in heaven is eternal and ultimate
a time to reconnect with the Holy Spirit
it's more than a quick fix, it's the time for salvation
heaven's happy hour the place for spiritual libation

Jesus spoke some parables about how to save sinners
finding those whom the Lord God wants to serve His dinner
the daily bread, the good news which is full of godly power
what one needs to celebrate heaven's happy hour

when one sheep strays and you go off to find it and return it to the flock
that's when Father God and the angels in heaven will be rocking around the clock
when a women loses a precious coin and diligently cleans her house until it's retrieved
that's the type of dedication and devotion that God wants us to achieve

do you realize that most sinners are not in church but are out in the world?
and it doesn't make sense to offer salvation to those who already know the word
yet the Scribes and Pharisees accused Jesus Christ of hanging out with sinful men
for they could never understand His true purpose was to give instruction to them
for it's not about the sermons, the rituals not the circumcision
it's knowing that your reason for being is to practice the Great Commission
and when people have lost their way and have a desire to be found
don't be hypocrites like the Pharisees and on them look down
just listen to Jesus' parables and discern the wisdom within
open your ears and eyes to His teachings and preaching
He came to tell us what it is of us the God desires
He came to show us what it is of us the God requires
He came to offer salvation even if it would only be to one lost sheep
He came to give us the good news, a treasure for us to keep

heaven's happy hour a time to celebrate salvation
heaven's happy hour to drink of spiritual libation
remember God gave each of us His express permission
to evangelize the gospel as part of the Great Commission
so don't be condescending if you're already a member of the family
for your purpose as a child of Christ is to increase exponentially

Our cross to bear

Dare to bear the cross 
and break the chains of sin 
then ascend, brethren. 
For death is not the end, 
but indeed it is where true life begins. 
I say this for the Lord speaks to me, 
and through me to you. 
For he exists to be 
as the sky exists to be blue. 
So hear me, 
but don't fear me 
for my words are not leery. 
My words are meant for the fallen 
whose sins have become weary. 
Like you l was bound until he set me free. 
For my cross was confessed 
to he who will forever be. 
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, amen.

The under rug swept prophet part 3

But who knows whose the leader of which or what tangents of mans divine plan 
of twisting and changing words and accusation of lies and liars
To look for those who synchronicity and dangerously know the truth
who will be one day brave enough to discover how to baby-sit reality while he 
removes the veil and helps the god’s and his children come together and return 
to the garden before we obliviously celebrate the betrayal of ourselves our souls 
our gods
Forever and our thrown away
And this test no mere mortal man can properly comprehend
Many victims are claimed everyday and live their lives ignorant that they are 
returning to a place either up or down 

Where heaven is full of denial and hell was supposed to be a reward for passing 
a test of faith instead of betrayal

So there we stood with our hopes and crooked smiles
A favorite angel as the leader of the innocent blasphemy to the sucker of the 
sucker patrol
And the truth under rug swept and this part of the truth, which has nothing to do 
with the inner driving force turned our act inside out, and we were punished for 
the lie sevenfold and sevenfold and sevenfold
And saw a beautiful god turn summers cold
And man's plan with all of his questions are things that have no answers that 
causes the fact into gods heart and piece by piece his beauty that is left we 
would like to grow shatters

So come to heaven with me
Pass the test of standing strong within reason and sentiment
The understanding of what was never said and written between the lines of a 
prophet and a son who are not one and the same but closely connected
The truth of a god in the middle of a powerfull mystery that changed three worlds
And all he can do is forgive what he can pretend he needs no answers and 
condemn wickedly what even he no longer understands
and then man comes up with his plans and those who revolutionize often 
Circle around to fall for the worst grade of when what hits the fan?

Something Good

God is the One who makes something good out of nothing
Speaking light in the darkness covering the face of the deep
And the Spirit of the Lord is hovering over your waters
To give you form, fill your void and breathe you out of sleep   (chorus)

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth
And He saw all He made was very good for His intentions
But soon after the first living souls experienced birth
They chose death and now seek out wicked inventions
	So Adam and Eve again lie lifeless on the ground in sin
	But God raises up the dead because they must be born again

[bridge]
For we are nothing without Jesus Christ and without Him nothing we can do
But with the Greater One living within, Satan can't make 'nothing' out of you

(chorus)

In the beginning Satan wanted the heaven and the earth
He saw every good thing within it and distracted our attention
Until the Seed of the Woman crushed the devil's evil mirth
Through His death, burial, resurrection and ascension
	Now the flaming sword is turning to direct us together
	To reach out and take the Tree of Life, eat and live forever

[bridge]

(chorus)

[rap]
Once our world was full of darkness
Then bright and shining through came the Light
To those who receive and believe in Him
To be God's children He gave the right
And now He sees you as very good
Every man, woman, boy and girl
Because greater is He that is in you
Than he that is in this world

{bridge and chorus simultaneously}

(chorus)

Life is a Test

Life on earth is a test
The things we're going through,
Every situation that arises its a quiz for me and you.
We are faced with life’s choices, to determine where will be,
It determines if we have the crown, we got the victory.
Dig down deeper, there are two choices, that you will have to make,
Will it be Heaven or Hell, Choose for life in eternity!
The test we pass in life, there's a crown that God will give,
Pass all your test, cause its for Him you live.
The crown of life that God has promised, for those who love Him so,
Obey Gods word, and do His will, your good works will always show.
You work with the gifts, which God has given you.
How are you going to use your gifts, what are you going to do?
Use your talents wisely, and use them for the Lord.
The way you use your talents, is what you'll be graded on.
The tests that God will give, He'll give you the strength to maintain.
He'll give you a shield of protection, throughout your hardest days.
He will not push you past your limits; He's got His eye on you.
He will stand by your side; He knows what you are going through.
God will test your character, your obedience, and your love.
God will test His people, the test are coming from up above.
God will test His people, for integrity, loyalty, and faith.
Call on the Lord when you need Him, oh for goodness sake.
God watches our reaction, to the circumstances that come our way.
Success, disappointment, and conflicts, we have new choices every day.
Illness, weather, and people are sent to test our strength,
It tests our faith in the Lord, it is Heaven sent.
Take each test wisely, cause you want to be with God,
He is the truth-He is magnificent-He is Divine.
Life is full of temptations; that we go through each day.  It’s all in the way we handle 
them, let the Holy Spirit show us the way.
We face trails and tribulation, but we must keep marching on, hold your head up high, 
and look towards the heavenly throne.
The choices that we make, will affect our place with thee.  At the end of time I want 
God to say, “Well done good and faithful servant, come join me in eternity”.
So, pray and read your word, each and every day,
It will show you how to get through hard times,
It will show you the way.
Life on earth is a test, so take it with care, 
It’s an adventure, and adventure we all must bear.
Life on earth is a test; we face obstacles we don't see.
If you pass the test, you will have the crown of life, with God in eternity.

Imprint of God

The hand of God touched my soul
I can do nothing without Him

Nature reveals His tenderness
Just as it does His wrath

Beyond all human comprehension
His love flows down from heaven above

Who reaches up for it and receives His love?
I watch and wait for any sign of Him 

My heart hungers for the day when I can be at His feet
Knowing my pain and suffering is over and peace reigns over all

His brilliance fills heaven and His love covers all 
What a merciful, yet jealous God we have

Jesus spent His life on earth showing us His Father 
He has shown us the measure of His love, the power of His anger

The depth of His compassion and mercy
And the fury of His wrath

I have seen the Hand of God work in my life
By the bruises He has healed and the tears He has collected

I have forever on my life
The Imprint of God

Angel of Time

Angel of Time


Time began with us in love
We were born with the heavens above
We have lived through the ages
And worn many different faces
You are my angel of time
Live forever in these lines

This love will pass from God to angels
Through heaven and time it’s self
This love will never die
It is written in the fabric of time

We have through every soul in love
And every vow promised to the Lord above
We are the love that starts deep within
The part of life where all new things begin
Together, forever and eternity
Time began with you and me

This love will pass from God to angels
Through heaven and time it’s self
This love will never die
It is written in the fabric of time


You are my angel of time
Live forever in these lines

because God loves me

He's been the source of my relief
backbone of my spiritual belief
He gives me such a sense of peace
He's been my ladder when I couldn't reach
I'll use His guidance and I'll teach
 I'll kneel to Him and I'll beseech
I'm everything you see because God loves me
He's been my strength when I felt weak
I hear His voice It sounds so sweet
I lift my hands to give Him praise
for giving me another day
He comforts me no matter when
I thank Him time and time again
I'm everything you see because God loves me
           {refrain}
God to You I give praise
love You in every way
need You all of my days
just You show me the way

whenever darkness manifests
I turn to Him for He is blessed
He's never ever let me down
lifted me up to higher ground
I come to Him in supplication
for spiritual rejuvenation
I'm everything I am
because I love Him
and when I read the Holy Scriptures
I finally get the full gospel picture
that on His word I do believe
there's nothing I cannot achieve
He is my one and only King
for Him I'll do most anything
I'm everything I am because I love Him
{refrain}
as I go higher and higher on
to reach the Kingdom of Zion
I know that He will meet me there
no need to have any fear
I will eternally reside
in Heaven by His graceful side
I'm all that I can be, because God loves me
my prayers have finally been rejoined
and up to Heaven I rise on
now I can truly see the Light
God's Kingdom is within my sight
with Him I will forever rest
sinless and now forever blessed
I'm all that I can be because God loves me
{refrain}
and now I look upon His face
I bow to Him in all His grace
there's no place I would rather be
right here with God beside of me
there's no more searching around
with Him I truly have been found
I'm where I want to be because God loves me
I'm where I want to be because God loves me
I'm where I need to be because God loves me

Heaven or Hell

From our behavior on Earth, we have a choice between heaven or hell
I'm trying to change my ways so that in heaven I may dwell

I plan to be around the cross and at the meeting
I plan to be with God and in his kingdom eternally

Getting to know God is the best thing we could ever do
Cause at the end of life, whose else eyes and face are you going to have to look 
    into?

I'm trying to get on board
So that I can be heavenly bounded with my Lord

No, not everything in my life is good
And there's other people who feel the way that I do, so I know that I'm not 
    misunderstood

I want to walk the streets that are said to be pearly
And enter the gates that are said to be gold

I want to be in heaven so I can forever be happy
So I can see of the wonders from the stories that I was once told

Me going to Hell is not in my vocabulary
So devil, step aside and get behind me

Don't touch me, don't push me, and don't tempt me
For I have prayer and God, and He will never leave me nor forsake me

If I keep God at the head of my track
He will keep you off of my back

You see, Hell is hot and only burns
And the devil can't do nothing for me but get on my nerves

There's so many things that God can do for me
That's why I choose heaven and heaven only

My Testimony

   
As I look back on the life that I led,
I realize I was unhappy until I found Christ and through Him my life was fed.

Like a song I once heard I wondered aimless living in sin.
I just plowed through life refusing to let my Savior come in.

He was always there Gods gift of love,
Gods only Son sent from heaven above.

To cleanse our spirit and wash us clean,
To share His Kingdom of peace and love so wonderful and pristine.

So stubborn I was when I was young,
Bitter and tormented with a vile speaking tongue.

I knew of Jesus and what He was about,
But the devil had control and thus I was filled with doubt.

It was a mighty long journey before I surrendered my soul,
And accepted Jesus and Heaven as my ultimate goal.

The first few months after I accepted Jesus as my guiding light,
The devil got mad and put up one hell of a fight.

The devil hates losing especially someone he used to control,
It took a lot of prayers to save my soul.

A couple of months after I was saved I was practically bedridden for a couple of 
days.
I couldn’t even speak or walk just mumble and stumble for no reason as friends 
began to pray.

These mighty warriors of God I feel is what saved me I know in my heart.
No payment was required as my friends were only doing their part.

The presence of God is so real you’ll not change my mind.
An awesome love for all if you’ll only look you surely will find.
