A Force To Be Reckoned With

I see the bitterness polluting this world 
a multitude of evil hides then divides 
conquering with twisted visions of democracy 
one joke history repeating past horrors return 

Hurting innocent people tells another story 
bullies who think they are above human justice 
aggressors filled with pride in falsehood 
you will fall heaviest of all

Suffering fleeing war victims as the devil marches forward 
his army is arising from ashes darkness grips our planet
6 children a day dying, 3 world war two show mercy 
for the love of all that holds good in this world

Such hardships giving up everything held dear
Look into your soul and know the mortal truth 
only the blind hide and do not see selfishness 
the one demon followed by others a legion

Fed like animals where is the loving joy that opens arms
Offering comfort to those in need have mercy 
Peace unto this world sings with a warm heart
To love and understand our brothers and sisters plea

Please give them shelter 
feed and clothe their weary bodies 
in their hours of ache 
With open arms I pray to God 

Your salvation love and understanding the scriptures 
we all know what must be done in our Lords name
Protect those families against the demon who hates and destroys families
Watching the news we are tainted with so much ugliness 

lies drip fed to us twisted through the master deceivers hallow heart 
We all know who sits at the head of a fork tongue
Peace is the way forward as greed wants war 
only a fool arms themselves with hate their pride lies in bed with envy 

Cunningly cursing everyone 
curtains raise darkness you will kneel to the light
With power and glory supreme leader at your command 
I bow with open eyes we see the path of complete destruction ahead 

Faith is the sword of truth 
openly we all should do more even in voice help 
Do we stand for something or fall in our sins
I speak one soul because united we are many



Just a note to say Gary on What Kind of People Are We
after reading your piece these words flowed from my heart 
thank you kindly for the insight and powerful pen filled with light and truth

Surviving This World

Surviving this World that has so much wrong,
It makes me wonder if I've changed,
I know I’m just a pilgrim passing through,
I would get to know Jesus if I were you,
We live in a dread full and shameless society,
Run by political fools and even though, not so quietly,
God has left instructions for all to follow,
Yes, even the preached word sometimes seems hollow,
It seems like even the spoken words are like grains of sand,
As soon as it’s spoken it seems to slip right through your hands,
The People are lost and that is true, who will find them,
Because the hands of leadership is run by the foolish,
Wake up People for our LIFE is short and time is running out,
Just look around you and you'll see there is no doubt.
I know salvation is a choice and up to you,
Look at the joy, loving, understanding that Jesus brings,
Snuggled in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ,
He asks you to come… for He knows you need Him,
Because of his love He died for us,
And you should know you can trust in Him as He trust in us,
So how will you survive, in a world that has so much wrong?
The answer is acknowledging Jesus, repent and be baptized,
The choice is easy to follow the guide He has provided,
It is said that true prayer changes everything, 
It is what we need in a world of sin,
Jesus did not teach us there would not be any storms,
Yes, He promised safe passage for us,
Since the day we're born,
Watch yourself as the devil will always come back,
He hates losing the fight and that is a fact,
And now you know to read the Bible, follow His example,
Don’t turn around… because I’m talking to you,
Get right my world family before it’s too late,
Now you know how to survive, in a world that has so much wrong,
Jesus gave this advice for all to be with Him,
To help us survive in this world has so much wrong,
Jesus knows we have that sin in us, 
Yes, He still loved us enough to give His LIFE for us,
So People wake up and follow Jesus,
And help save a someone before you leave this LIFE,
Because we know this earth is not really our home,
We are just passing through and one day we'll be gone,
The Bible says, “One is taken and one is left behind”,
My Brothers and Sisters, let us put on God's armor,
Now prepare to fight the good fight for all People of all Nations,
Jesus side by side with us, AMEN!! 
Remember that God gave us LIFE to "Live In Faith Ever" with Him,

Blood stone Jewel

An iridescent sapphire cuts into the night’s sky clearly 
a gift unasked for and predestined appears solidity
love is the luster smelted inside the eastern chambers afar
 
Hooked upon the waxing moon’s burgeoning smile that shines
mesmerizing silver shadows dance under your bloodstained beams
beckoning freedom in an heavenly escape reflects back unconditionally 
 
A tantalising call nurtured on the precarious wind surrounds the soul
shaded Sacred Heart images dance beckoning inside chorographic unison
never imagined acceptance of grace awaits in your tender loving embrace

Its time to believe in God now

It's time to believe in God now
 because he'll always love you, 
care for you and help you truly, 
God just waits on us with his arms open
up to us, he'll never judge you 
like people do
but instead, he'll love you for you
he'll walk with you 
through life and 
be your friend forever
hell bless you when you need it
he'll make sure all wrongs are made right for you
in your lifetime
he’ll just want to be there for you
how can you not love God
he never do you wrong or lie to you
he'll only love you
that will last a lifetime
so think about it today 
and love God!

written by Christina Marie Cuevas,
God Bless you all!

Salvation

Oh Most Heavenly Farther 
please forgive me in my sins 
Gracious Star of Bethlehem 
I believe in your only Son crowned
Our Lord and King of Israel 
who died on the Holy Cross
arose on the third day 
A toll paid in our sins 
Master you paid the ultimate sacrifice 
guiding with your Holy Spirit 
makes me new again 
I believe in Our Saviors name 
forever and always Glory be 
Amen

A poem for My Beloved













2011, Yambol








A poem for My Beloved
1.He is like a bunch of  myrrh,
He is gilding my fingers
With fragrance.
He is weaving into between
My breasts, He is cloaking on
My pearl buttons in sunrise redden
Like a droplets of blood,
A necklace of my heart,
A star of cinnamon tree,
A porcelain cup with milk
On a small table,
Till a silver spoon which
He is taking up slowly along
His stifling lips, and like a butterfly
Is swallowing a little chalice of my heart.
My beloved is walking and decreasing.

2. He wakes the forests green like emerald
Hayricks, white droplets, running on the
Face of the sky.
Eyebrows of clouds ,each snowdrop
bowing down
Under His white fingers.
All blade of grass reducing.
The pomegranates are like big chalices
For Holy communion.
My Beloved lifted it.
His back have been cut of
Smart whips, blood veronicas
Shoots up His white skin,
Strained like a drum, for fierce mad
Throng.
My Beloved will never be separated
From my breasts.
Myrrh deeply in my bosom and I
Live from her Holiness,
Golden lichen in golden hoops,
Tightens up my heart.
Beloved how giving out a sweet perfume,
Smells a summer.

The Blood Of JESUS

The Blood of Jesus saved my soul
The Blood of Jesus
Made me whole.

The Blood of Jesus is
The means by which
I have become truly Rich.
I speak not of mere material things
But the Hope of Glory which it brings.

As we think of His Blood,
Let us not forget the Man,
Nor fail to realize that He has 
A Master Plan.

For us He has made the Ultimate Sacrifice,
And now, it is only fair for us to give him
Our lives.

There really is no doubt about it,
He is in control,
And He also has the power
To make you whole.

So won’t you seek him out
Today?
He is sure to set your life
On the upward way.

US in JesUS

Before we were thought of or time had started, 
God put US in His Son’s name.. 
 
And each time we pray, you'll see its true, 
You can't spell Jesus without including US.  
Were a pretty big part of His wonderful name, 
For US, He was born; 
 
And His great love for US is the reason He died. 
Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand 
He rose from the dead, with US in His plan? 
 
The stones split away, the gold trumpet blew, egospelexpress
And His resurrection was for US.  
 
As JesUS left the earth with His wonderful ascension, 
When He felt there was one thing He just had to mention. 
 
"Go into the world and tell them it's true 
that I love them all - Just like I love you." 
 
So many people are Christian brothers and sisters, 
Don't all the others have a right to know JesUS too? 
 
It all depends on what we do, 
He'd like them all to know, 
But it all starts with US.

Sea impression

                 
                 Wave a sea softened
                  and a pain and a tenderness
                   throw dreams in fascination
                   of the blue.
                   And let shave the waves of
                   Your eternity , oh, weigh
                    above me,
                    oh,weigh a  coast of years.
                    Carry far in azure, spiral
                    ships,
                    with bulging little abdomens,
                    flutter with mahagony pinions
                    and already in vain  expect you
                    to stop the scales harbours 
                    with hot flames for You are
                    open.
                    Far away, far away ,far away,
                    stretched string,
                    heart and frank await the 
                    hymn of June.
                    All sea sisters are dressed in
                    mother-of-pearl garment
                    embroidered of kiss of 
                    eternity. 
                    In the morning hunts them
                    fishermen and revive with
                    breath of their man’s hands.
                    In the evening girls wash 
                    their black tunics,
                    in their blue hearts,
                    their feet white ,who cadge
                    heavy chains.
                    The night is squeezed enigma
                    and ugly,
                    predatory like a bat pecking
                    of scarlet fig.
                    Sea sisters, sea sisters,
                    remember His steps 
                    which go through you noiselessly,
                  and ou swing like
                  bloody wine-
                 hold in His fingers Herod,
                 Pilate washes his hands,
                in Yours heirs
               and they bristled like winter
               icicles bristles of innoncent blood .
               There at Golgotha 
                hearing terrible cry,
                blood gushes like
               wounded river disappear
               like Easter roses,
              in weeds of flushed 
     preditory crowd,
     to open way of
     saving.
     Who is He?
     Do you heard 
     His name ?
     He is Messiah,
     God’s anoited
      Jesus Christ.
      Like little sheeps,
      clouds of candy floss,
      they welcome festivaly.
       Barefooted are feet 
      of lovely swarthy steps
     of the sun, came to bow,
      before You , Creator.
      The sea throws his 
       magnificent silver flesh,
      blue like heavently lace,
       to swallow all stars 
       only Bethlehem’s
      stays inextinguishable,
       pretty like uncreated
      like an apple of not 
      born girl.

Unknown

Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

Return Of Your King

Reflections of imperfections have shown me a way that I can move mountains through my power of faith even though I can't see him I know he is real through the power of prayer and a Love that I feel It's growing inside me like a flower in bloom shall I reveal my powers or is it too soon I am reading the signs through my darkness I find a reason for belief in the light of mankind that I know shall overcome the greatest of odds the Love I seek amazes me especially through the flaws because now I am inspired through the hero's that bring my throne through the darkness on which I return on as your King.

The Righteousness Of Love

Love is a wonder shared by one another it's the only reason I'm not six feet under Love in which I believe in a will to sustain I give back to life, now in dormant states of pain The power of Love may not alone be enough locked inside my dreams escape only from above higher than any human being has ever gone before I must have evolved rise above hate, great once more My Father taught me wisdom I am imprisoned no longer now an beast not of burden I am no lion, I am stronger on my shoulder sits twin dragons long awaiting the day evil forces come forth to take what Love is left, away A Hero of Love light are what the world needs angels, not demons exist where ever you believe follow your heart's direction and you shall achieve objects of affection rid of materialistic greed My bright energy has awakened to a fire never consuming the source as the flames just grow higher that is the desire of a product we call Love Fear, the counterpart what I was once made of I am slowly learning how to win when my peace is harder to sharpen so I have given my pen leave the sword has its uses I must say I believe to vanquish the evil in the minds too diseased to serve any purpose except their own selfish ones tomorrow a new day in the clarity of the sun where we two are now one and one done now does bring about a great change lit by the righteousness of Love.

Get on your bike and get out of my face it smells of fish and oil on the beach this peachy day cape on my shoulders to fly away up with the seagulls I sh*t on your face Now that the body has been properly buried full of the scars from the wars do I carry I cannot believe you all find me scary I skip full of spirit for despite this I'm still merry For on this day God smiled on me gave me the sign to renew my belief and with his presence I shall achieve an eternal life filled by my infinite energy (S).

I planted a seed

I planted a seed, so tiny and small ,
And the seed opened up , to feed 'one and all'
What enchanted a seed' I dropped in it's hole ,
And it's skin broke to pieces , and it started to grow .
O'h the magic of nature' how it's coming along ,
" Tis the Seed of salvation ,come to take us all home ,
So get off of your rocker , and go sit on a chair ,
Do not ponder your future,
Cause it's all written down ,
Just beware he is coming ,
Do not yell, scream or frown .
I am your hope , and your guide ,
And I won't let you down
Cause I showed you my Garden ,
Planted seeds from the 'Crown .
It is time for repenting 
Come to me as you are ,
And if you refuse me ,
Your time won't be too far .

SAY AMEN

SAY AMEN!
Sometimes the world tries to come in with confusion and misconceptions but the hand of God is seen and the world disappears. When the soul becomes dishearten, and spirit lies heavy within, I am in the Lord’s hands. You may watch to see my steps hindered. You may wish all bad things. However, through the grace of God, my path will not alter. I will claim the victory. I was told by a great woman if the Lord is for you the world cannot cause you any harm. This woman past long ago but I continue to hear her words. A treacherous journey I have travel to affirm the work of God. I have many roles to partake to form via his commandments. Life is not to be a manifestation of ill will. The Lord is my vestibule when I am tested in faith. I find this passageway. In solace, he comforts me and provides succor. In prayer, I worship. Never a defeated purpose is found even when sylphs are broken. I am faithful to the knowledge of knowing that I am being consoled by Jehovah. Emphatic is internal dialogue. Unequivocal, is the Messiah in his leadership. The Holy Scripture, as inscribed by his prophets and apostles, is dictum that guides in anything. Peace be unto you this day. Believe in a greater determination and pray. Worship the Lord Almighty through a righteous way. At all times, give God the praise. Say Amen! ____________________________| PENNED ON AUGUST 10, 2014!

Something is being said

Something is being said

across the whole world.

Something is being said

for all to hear.


Something is  being spoken

for us to be awoken,



Something is giving us life

to beat all this strife,



Something is being loving

to heal our pain and sorrow,



Someone has given us a new tomorrow,

Something is being said,



He is saying take His hand

He is saying forget the trials for they take you far,

Far into a land where life is left unknown,

He is saying, I am life,I am the true vine,



take my hand and we will live in eternity for all time,

for all days and you will learn my awesome ways.

GOD IS HERE

GOD IS HERE!

Embodied is the mind.
The brain personifies.
I’m alive.
A big girl has become a woman.
The world may say I am nothing.
God says I am somebody.

I climb to ascend.
I went up to come down.
I bend my knees in prayer.
I open my mouth to song.
If I fail in goal, I did try to bring peace within.
Clearly, God and I are in unity.

Safeguarding the things that are important
Making the Lord the highest priority
Wearing the armor of God in all battles, strength is given by Jehovah.

Ascend to climb.
Come down to go up!
On bended knees, pray.
Song comes from mouth.
I shall not fail!
I shall be healed!
To those that desire unity, God is here.

Before and after thoughts have become, the past provides insight.
It will burn if I do not take care.
A blaze of light and I lack fear.
The need to know stands.

May God deliver souls!
May the Lord make all of us whole!

I descended to climb.
I am calm to be profound.
Praying to God through song, knees I bend.
I shall not fail.
My spirit forms.
God and I are one.

(ORCHESTRA/MUSIC)

So I climbed to ascend.
I went up to come down.
So I bend my knees in prayer
I opened my mouth to song.
I did not fail in goal.
I did bring peace within.
Clearly, God and I are in unity.

I ascended to climb.
I came down to go up!
On bended knees, I prayed.
Song came from my mouth.
I did not fail!
I was healed!
To those that desire unity, God is here.

ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST LORD

ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST LORD Expressive art showed her face. The mother of Christ was shouting in silence. Her words were that we are amongst God. I read her lips. She stated to give respect during Passover. The vision was surreal. This Easter Sunday, when I give my speech, my teachings will be for a greater determination. Virgin Mary departed knowledge and new insight on the second coming of Jesus Christ Lord. The world will be celebratory. This knowledge is glorious. ___________________________________________________| Sponsor: Debbie Guzzi Contest Name: Jesus Nebula & Visions of Mary for Easter Entry Date: March 22, 2014 Date Written: March 22, 2014 Motif: Visionary

Jesus Christ A Perfect Sacrifice

Jesus is the word of God, through him all things are made
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, 
And the Word was God
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us
So that we could behold God's glory
He came to the world to love us and deliver us from all sins
God was revealed visibly through Jesus Christ

He is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens
He redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us
He shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners
The sacrifice of animals could never take away our sins
Jesus offered the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world


Jesus received blasphemous false accusations from the world
He was denied, abandoned, mocked, was arrested and bound.
He was rejected by his own hometown and was asked deceitful questions.
He was ridiculed by his own family members, he was blindfolded, beaten
Struck with blows, was arrested, wounded, bruised unaccompanied by his accusers
He was falsely charged, chastised, endured stripes, oppressed, led to the slaughter
Cut off from the land of the living, he was abused by the roman soldiers
He was scourged, put on a crown of thorns on his head, a reed in His right hand
Struck Him on the head with the reed
The soldiers striped him and divided His garments, nailed on the cross
He bore his own cross and was crucified.
The chief priests with the scribes mocked and sneered at him

Jesus paid a debt of sin that He did not owe
We owed a debt of sin that we could not pay
Jesus came to serve, to take away the sins of many people
He willingly paid the ultimate sacrifice for the sins of the world
Our sins had to be paid with Jesus blood
Without shedding of His blood there is no remission of sins
He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows
He was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities
He died on the cross as our perfect, unblemished, unspotted substitute
Who did not suffer for his own sins, but for the sins of others
Like a lamb that is led to the slaughter
He is the perfect Lamb without spot and without blemish
He is The Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world


He made a peace between God and man through His death.
To reconcile to Himself all things, 
Whether things on earth or things in heaven
Through His blood shed on the cross
We have been made holy through his one perfect sacrifice
We are saved and redeemed by His blood
Our sins are forgiven and we are justified through His blood
We have eternal life, communion and fellowship with God
Through His blood
He who follows Him shall not walk in darkness, 
But have the light of life
For He is the way, the truth, and the light
The resurrection and the life
He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever
He is the one who baptized with the Holy Spirit

Jesus is our advocate, our comforter
He is Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation
He sent us ANOTHER comforter which is Holy Spirit
Lord Jesus Christ is the comforting Holy Spirit
And we must not grieve the Holy Spirit of God
For we are sealed unto the day of redemption.
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form
But laid aside his mighty power and glory, 
Taking the disguise of a slave and becoming like men
God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, 
Seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles
Believed on in the world, received up into glory
He was manifested to take away our sins
And in him there is no sin
For Jesus Christ is in the Father and the Father in him
The Holy Spirit is the spirit of God which is the spirit of Jesus Christ
For Father and Jesus are One
And Salvation is found only in Jesus Christ.

Bow the head in faith

I had the most beautiful of feelings 
When the Holy Spirit held my heart precious dewdrops 
Crowning treasure your jewel emotions sing so softly 
To my soul words enchanting a prayer 
In a lifetime of dreams faith O Lord patience one virtue 
Saves and embraces all love 
In a world free from hate 
Thank you master for showing me the pathway 
Paved with truth a gateway opens 
Smiling free golden beams warmly at the tunnel end 
To kiss your adoring feet 
At the bottom of the cross 
My king Lord Jesus salvation

Close your eyes and dream with me

Close your eyes and dream with me

the way things are suppose to be

the Love inside will set us free.


Close your eyes and dream with me

the way things are suppose to be

the burdens we carry lets share today

Lets do things in our Lords way.


Close your eyes and dream with me

lets walk in the way He made us to be.



Close your eyes and hear His voice

things are crazy in this world of pain

close your eyes and let Him lead

also help me see His truth in me.



My life bounces back and forth

close your eyes and dream with me

on how things are suppose to be.



Help us Lord to live free

in your way,please reveal

Your heart to me.



Close your eyes and dream with me

Take my hand and walk with me

to the ends of the earth

show our true worth

His love in us,

this is the way its suppose to be.



Close your eyes and dream with me.

Deep in the Woods

Deep in the woods,

the branches dance in the wind,

wild and free,


Spreading their fragrance for

you and me.


Wild flowers sway,

as the wind try's picking them up,


Their roots planted firmly,

as they flow from side to side,


showing us all their glory,

and our makers touch inside,


shadows follow as they calmly go slow,

Deep in the woods,

time is well known,

as night takes hold,

until the morning,

when light takes control.

Never So Gracious

A full moon night to my delight what is so wrong with doing what's right nothing is right after so long no use in complaining time to move on The Dream Water one day might take me away farther from the comfort of familiarity I float on my back then shut my eyes my body now sinking into ocean arms open wide Now swallow your son back to his nature when he is no longer needed to stay here the next generation are dooming themselves they need my experience to guide them through hell Why should I bother on my own, I strive through I turn my back on the thought of bothering to save you alone in this world my, is it spacious I'm finally smiling, never so gracious.

Encrypted Seasons

A year is measured as an image of
life for a man or woman upon 
this earth.

Spring, which brings new life to the
world, is the symbol of baptism.
The cleansing of the souls of men and
women as it renews the soul at their 
moment of entrance into life.

Summer with its blazing heat and its
ever shinning light are also reminders
of the faithful light of another world
and the powerful love of God and the
symbol of infinity.

Autumn, the Season of harvest and
generations of old, and is the symbol
of the last judgment, that great day
on which we will reap what we have
sown.

Finally, Winter the shadow of death
that awaits the resurgence of mankind
and the renewal of life and this earth.

Through the ever changing Seasons, 
we gain knowledge of the process of
life as we walk this earth filled with symbols
and signs while under a road mapped sky
teeming with ideals.
