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.

Why I Need The Lord

Without Him, I'm eternally lost.
He, for my salvation, paid the cost.
Yielding to Him truly brings peace.
I, from worry, receive release.
Never thru life do I want to walk alone.
Each day I need grace that comes from His throne.
Every care on Him, I can cast.
Delivered am I, from my sinful past.
Trials and tests in my life do arise.
He guides me thru them for He is all wise.
Envelops me in His presence divine.
Let's me know I'm His, and He is mine.
Only thru Him, to Heaven I can go;
Redeemed by His blood, washed whiter than snow.
Dear Saviour, one day, face to face I will know.

Winter Acrostic

Wind and frost have come to bite our noses while 
Images of glistening snow sparkle in the moonlight.
Nights in this valley have brought us a taste of heaven,
Tranquil scenes we see while taking our evening stroll.
Everyone in their houses getting ready for evening in silence,
Reaching home we cuddle drinking cocoa by the fireplace enjoying winter.

O-n this Easter day God took you up to heaven.
L-ong days and nights followed, especially for your mummy who misses you with an
I-tensity that only a mother can. A
V-acant hole in her heart, forever longing for you.
I-nvisible threads of love will always bind you together, you are mummy's
A-ngel, who is always with her.

Remembering my niece Olivia who left this world twenty two years ago, aged three months.

Eternity's Touch

The black expansive depths, I plumb,
Over blue marble, the sea of suns,
Under a tapestry, dripping bright,
Canticle written on endless night,
Heaven, touch of the ages, come.

Breath Of Life

Warm ,tingly, vibrate and calm
yet astonishing, amazing
Simply pure
Calm, nurturing, beautiful
Oh so rare
Instantly capturing
Delightful, graceful, and subconsciously aware
but plainly distinct
Moments notice
Second chances, forgiveness, and divine 
Overwhelming light
Blazing, alluring
Golden Glare
Breathe Of Light
has been set forth for me
Through my personal tragedies
Cancer, auto accidents, personal issues
Death couldn't declare
Heartache, broken relationships
loss of loved ones to bear
Darkness, coldness
images of hell at a stare
Breathe of Life
has been set forth for me
White doves, rainbows
Angels in the realm
demons, shadows
following me
Oh so grim
Victory, Praise
Hallelujah I scream
Breath Of Life for me
has been set forth
For it's not a dream
It's my reality!

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!

i was dead the day i was born

I was dead the day I was born

She looked straight into my eyes; as she sat right across me
 I could see fear right through her, as she mumbled with the thought of my vicious actions
Trying so hard to understand how did I become such an animal overnight
An “A” student abdicating life due to life sorrow daily incidence
I burst out loud behaving like this is a big buffoon and replied 
 ”I was dead the day I was born” 

Its amazing how one angel can transmute into Lucifer 
So horrifying like witnessing a saint transforming into a zombie
How a GURU can incline to prostitute tendencies with no remorse
As she fell on her knees with tears hopelessly growling kissing the floor
I could smell blood coming out from her wounded heart as she said silently 
“Forgive them lord for they don’t know what they doing”

I giggled out loud with anger written all over my scar, scary face
As I perpetrate the idea that what kind of a loving parent that abandon the world for so long
The parent that left even unborn babies striving to survive life termination 
The war survivors thrown on the streets self-catering on the dustbins 
 “I guess heaven have its people and I’m definitely not one of them”

Goodbye Is Not Forever

Going away and to never return
On a journey far from here
Over the the horizon is where you would go
Destiny waits and take you to that place
Beyond the skies where angels dwell
Your home in heaven awaits to welcome you
Eternal peace shall embrace you when you sleep

I will miss you when you are gone
Sadness and sorrow will fill my heart

Never will I see you again in this life but I pray
One sweet day we'll see each other again
There in heaven where we will forever stay

From here I'll send my prayers and kisses to you
On the whispering winds that rise up to the sky
Remember me when you're way up there
Everyday of my life I shall think of our time
Verses we shared shall be played in my mind
Every time you are missed and thought of
Remembering is the only way to keep you with me-alive in my memory

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.

The Savior Reigns

Thirty pieces of silver
How could anyone deny Him? He's
Everlasting luminous light
Serendipitous of God's goodness
Astounding as angelic news
Visitors from on high, spoke,in the twinkle of an eye
Imagine our world, sans the Savior
Oh the joy of Christmas
Responsibilities rings clear, as carols fills the air
Recalling the reason for the season
Each and every heart are stirred
In Cities, Towns, Hamlets; bells will ring
Generations know the story of a new born King
Now, as then, the Savior reigns
Sum of redemption is as priceless gift, He calls us to claim.

		Places of significance to me
		Always lift my spirits for a while.
		Regal settings depicted in books
		Amaze me, but none can make me smile,
		Delight me, like Heaven, as described
		In God's Word--city of pure gold. There
		Saints bask in the Savior's love. For all
		Eternity, each is called His heir.

The good heart

Heaven and earth bares me a witness
Only heaven and earth bares me a witness
That righteousness is greatness

Kings and queen might be ignorant
But I careless
I am the son of God
The father of the fatherless

Cloth in apparel of faithfulness
Washed in the blood of  kindness
Only heaven and earth bares me a witness
For that is greatness

Let mankind deny me
But this does not change me
Ye men of vain imagination
Who do not like good direction

Why won’t you perish in your illusion?
You harden your heart
And will not listen to my instruction

Ye heart of fools
Who should be instructed with whips
You flattering lips
Your evil deeds will end soon

Like never before
Ye shall be no more
Surly the material you trust
Will not last
They will all go to the dust

Shoeless Wanderers of Heaven

N ever again will the Tribes of Israel be the sacrificial lamb of man.
A nnealed in furnaces of man, not in Olam HaEmet by the Almighty in "the World of Truth."
Z ealots rose from the ashes of the ovens and now defend like Sicarii of old.
I srael blooms and grows in the desert, returned by Allied Forces to the cauldron.
H ome to the Holy Land, they were sent, shipped, caste surrounded by Arab foe, isolated. 
O vens melted their hearts, striped their forms for their souls held no intrinsic value.
L ampshades and shoes were made from their skin, jewelry from the gold in their teeth.
O rders given by The Third Reich were obeyed without conscious. The herd was culled.
C hrist-killer the Christian mind said, devil worshiper, their deaths were acceptable.
A nti-Semitism always has been and always will be a threat to Jews everywhere.
U nited, Jews must form a majority population in Israel so Jews everywhere feel safe.
S anctuary will never again being denied Israel will be safe haven from religious persecution.
T o a future where all men have intrinsic worth regardless of race, creed or religion, pray.

Beyond the Earth lie three spiritual realms
Enraging the cynical hearts of unbelievers
Amoretti smile around His luminous throne
Unequaled is the performance of their tone   
Tremolo intensifies the subliminal lyrics
Invigorating are the acustic instruments    
Forming sounds not known to any mortal
Ubiquitous is the echo invading each hall
Lord of all nations reveal your plan to all

Embracing Earth

     Early on in my privileged life, 
    My parents gave wise advice to me:
   Be all you can be, but reckon strife.
  Relish every opportunity
Aware that strains and stress may be rife.
 Count it all joy that earth is your home
  Instead of starting out in Eden.
   Never give in to suffering like some,
    Give in to God and look for reasons.  

       Embrace the earth as His creation,
   Appreciate it as less than ideal.
 Realize this old world’s aggravation
   Tries our allegiance, patience to reveal.
       Heaven will reward our dedication.

The day of reckoning

The day the trees shed;oh' my
The day the water ran 
The day disease 
The day those that were 
already dead pled;For 
The day we have read;The 
The day The prophets said;"The 
day of judgement is here!"
The day the righteous found

The day the well dried;"Not one 
drop left?.
The day the plants fried;"All 
Burt up?
The day the cattle died;"do 
they go to heaven?
The day the children 
cried;"They realize soon 
The day the galaxy opened 
The day God rang the bell;"The 
angels trumpets went off?
The day the evil cast a 
worthless spell;"They tried I 
The day the truth will tell;"lies 
The day the souls left there 
The day the sky fell;"A new 
The day the Gods sent the evil 
to hell;"For Good"

The day the dead will meet
there maker is here
Hells gates will be opened
End to all the forsakers 

Deceit,will be judged first.And 
asked "why did you deceive?"
Angels will prepare Heaven to 
Youth with there innocence,and 
the righteous for there 
obedience enter first

Oh' woe to the souls who do 
not repent
For there is no other chance 

Repent, take responsibility for 
your sins. 
Ever since the beginning we 
have been preparing for the 
Condemned are those who had 
no faith 
Kneel before your maker
Obey! never held so much 
No living species is not judged 
Immune to all disease,no more 
pain those that enter the 
Nurturing,no tear left to dry on 
its own,no babies or children 
left all alone
Gods wrath has been felt,the 
day all cards are dealt face up 
for all to see,The day he will 
ask you

"Why have you forsaken me?"
"Hope was something I 
abandoned my Farther"
"Yes!My son I know,But Why?

E xamine themselves, to understand if
A ll that they hope for is real, or merely
V irtual reality,
E xisting only in their minds and hearts
N otions of beliefs, seeds planted by parents or by culture.

O nly by understanding the true
N ature of humans ineptitude, can we have a sure hope.

E ventually, all the world will be a united brotherhood
A nd true peace will arrive with the coming of God's kingdom
R adiant health, a happy family life, resurrection of the dead
T o life again on an earthly paradise of pleasure
H appy is the day when the Lord's prayer will finally be answered.
