WORD WANGLER

Don't twist the words of God, my friend,
To suit your current leanings.
Don't rearrange and fashion them,
To give them certain meanings.

Don't take the Book He gave to us,
For clear, incise instruction,
And mold the words to suit yourself,
And draw your own conclusions.

You can't change the mind of God, my dear,
By rearranging phrases.
What He said remains steadfast,
Dispite the current phases.

We must abide within His laws,
They will not bend to suit us;
For God says what He means to say,
He will not just excuse us;

For if we dare to change one word,
One single line becloud,
The Book of Revelation warns,
His curse will be profound.




"FOR I TESTIFY TO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK. IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD UNTO THESE THINGS, GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK; AND IF ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THIS BOOK, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE,
AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK."
          Revelation 22:18-19

    Love this !! How often mankind twists the words .... His word is a lamp for our feet, a light for our path ..when we remove parts, their is no more light and we stumble. Enjoyed !!

    Yes, sweetie, of course. that was the main meaning of your poem, people trying to use the scriptures to suit their own purposes. Your poems are so great.YOu should make a book of them and call them Pearls of Wisdom!! Time for me to get to upstairs.I spend way too much time here sometimes!! Luv, Andrea

    I think a lot of things, sadly, were already changed in the dark ages and before that. But we just do our best to read it by the spirit! Good message, Judy.
