Past Sins ~

When your conscience,
plays with your mind
to see what past sins
it can go and find.

Don’t allow satan,
your thoughts to attack
for your confessed sins
are thrown behind God’s back.

When your moral sense,
of what’s right and wrong
satan starts to mess with
remain in Jesus strong.

For satan’s best disguise,
is the angel of light . . .
so He can confuse you when
with temptation you fight.

When your conscience,
starts to beat up on you
know that Jesus is greater
than anything satan can do!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 38:17

Behold, for peace I had great bitterness:
but thou hast in love to my soul delivered
it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast
cast all my sins behind thy back.

2 Corinthians 11:14

And no marvel; for Satan
himself is transformed
into an angel of light.

1 John 4:4

Ye are of God, little children,
and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is
in you, than he that is in the world.

The Gospel Of Peace ~

Before you go out,
before you begin your day
to spread the Gospel
to the people along the way.

Make sure you’re equipped,
for the battle ahead
for satan will do anything
so the Word you can’t spread.

Before you go out,
before the day you greet
make sure your prepared
to stand firmly on your feet.

For satan will attack you,
any way that he can . . .
for to the Gospel of peace
he is not a huge fan.

Before you go out,
to spread the Good News
satan’s land mines . . .
you’ll need to first defuse!

And your feet shod with

The Helmet Of Salvation ~

The helmet of salvation,
we need to wear everyday
or else the way we think
satan will begin to sway.

For, we need our minds,
protected with God’s Word
so that satan doesn’t mess
with the truth we’ve heard.

The helmet of salvation,
will safeguard all of us
from satan destroying
in God our faith and trust.

For our hope in believing,
in the things not seen
from our thoughts
satan will start to glean.

The helmet of salvation,
is a daily must wear . . .
so that we will not fall
into one of satan’s snares!

The Breastplate of Righteousness ~

When righteousness,
is your breastplate
your faith in God
satan can’t deflate.

For, it will become,
your soul’s protection
so that you won’t fall
for satan’s deception.

When after righteousness,
you constantly pursue
satan your faith . . .
will not breakthrough.

For, you will be entrenched,
in the Life, Truth and Way
and you’ll not be fooled
by what satan may say.

When the breastplate,
of righteousness you put on
into satan’s darkness . . .
you will not ever be drawn!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:14

And having on the breastplate
of righteousness;

Isaiah 59:17

as a breastplate,

Girded With Truth ~

If the battle with satan,
you truly want to win
you will need the truth
abiding deep within.

For the truth will make,
satan up and flee
for in you Jesus . . .
he is able to see.

If the fight with darkness,
you are going to beat . . .
with the truth be girded
from your head to your feet.

That way when satan,
starts his vicious attack
you’ll be able with the truth
to fight him right back.

If the battle with satan,
is to be fought and won
we need to be braced . . .
with the truth of God’s Son!

Stand therefore,
having your loins girt

The Shield Of Faith ~

Each day there’s a conflict,
that we need to fight . . .
a battle that’s between
the dark and the light.

But, before we go out,
onto the battle field
we must make sure
we are wearing our shield.

For, the shield of faith,
our hearts will protect
as satan’s fiery arrows
He begins at us to eject.

We will need to stand firm,
lest one may hit its mark
and turn our light for Jesus
into barely but a spark.

Each day there’s a conflict,
a clash between right and wrong
a battle that can only be won
when in Christ we stand strong!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:16

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench

The Sword Of The Spirit ~

The sword of the Spirit,
we are to wield . . .
whenever we go out
into the the battle field.

For, it speaks the truth,
to a world fallen
brings salvation to all
who on Jesus call on.

The Word of God,
we need to share
to those who have
so many worldly cares.

For it will calm and ease,
their everyday worries
just knowing that Jesus . . .
their burdens willingly carries.

The Sword of the Spirit,
is full of truth and light
and we must use its power
to win the faithful fight!

That Old Man ~




Sometimes that old man,
sneaks his way back in
for our souls he wants
to repossess and win.

So he taunts us with our past,
dangling in front of us
the delights we once found
in our former worldly lusts.

He tells us we needn’t be,
so committed to God’s Word
that we can still find delight
if the truth could be blurred.

He tantalizes us with things,
once giving us such pleasure
telling us they’re more rewarding
then our heavenly treasure.

Sometimes that old man,
in our lives creeps back in
but we who are saved . . .
know he is all about the sin!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:22-23

That ye put off concerning
the former conversation
the old man, which is corrupt
according to the deceitful lusts;

Romans 7.18

For I know that in me
(that is, in my flesh,)
dwelleth no good thing:
for to will is present with me;
but how to perform that
which is good I find not.

A Constant Reminder ~

A thorn in the flesh,
one only I can see . . .
an affliction running
throughout all of me.

A constant reminder,
of my own weakness
a steady remembrance
of God’s goodness.

A thorn in the flesh,
making me stronger
pulling me to Jesus
even more closer.

A constant reminder,
of His great power
a changeless recalling
He’s with me every hour.

A thorn in the flesh,
causing me to seek . . .
the strength of Jesus
when I’m too weak!

~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:7

And lest I should be exalted
above measure through the
abundance of the revelations,
there was given to me a thorn
in the flesh, the messenger of
Satan to buffet me, lest I should
be exalted above measure.

Satan’s Tool Of Fear ~

There is a harmful tool,
satan loves to use . . .
for our minds he wants
to daze and confuse.

It plants it ugly seeds,
of unbelief and doubt
so God’s plans for us
we cannot figure out.

He daily uses this tool,
on everyone of us . . .
for in God he doesn’t want
for us to put our trust.

It causes bewilderment,
and muddles up the mind
so God’s ways are harder
for us to go out and find.

He wants us to be anxious,
to load us down with care
so that we will think
Jesus our worries won’t bear.

This tool is called fear,
it’s satan’s favorite one
but if we submit to God
the devil will flee and run!

~~~~~~~~

James 4:7

Submit yourselves
therefore to God.
Resist the devil,
and he will flee from you.

A Spiritual Spiral ~

When your life turns into,
a spiritual spiral downward
when all you see is chaos
as you look at yourself inward.

That’s when you need to stop,
whatever you are doing
and after God’s will for you
begin to start pursuing.

When your faith flounders,
don’t let your life fall back
instead turn to Jesus
for the trust that you lack.

For Jesus will be there,
to give His strength to you
and bless you with the power
for everything you must do.

When life begins to spin,
out of your control
God will preserve . . .
the saving of your soul!

~~~~~~~~

But we are not of them
who draw back unto perdition;
but of them that believe

I’m In It To Win It ~

Beaten but not broken,
down but not out . . .
for I am in this fight
to win the bout.

Shattered but not crushed,
weak but not frail . . .
for there’s no way I’ll let
satan to take me to hell.

Tattered but not torn,
bleak but not resigned . . .
for my heart and God’s
will always be aligned.

Fragile but not hopeless,
mournful but not blue . . .
for nothing can shake
my faith Lord in You.

Beaten but not broken,
for I’m in it to win it . . .
tis why you won’t see me
ever give up or quit!

2 Corinthians 4:8-10

We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;
we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted,
but not forsaken;
cast down,
but not destroyed;

Always bearing about in the body
the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus might
be made manifest in our body.

Tests And Trials ~

When pain and heartache,
come knocking at your door
when you feel as if . . .
you can’t take it anymore.

Think it not strange,
for Jesus said He knew
all about the suffering
we would go through.

When tests and trials,
come blowing around
when you feel as if . . .
you’ll never rebound.

Think it not odd,
for Jesus warned us
we will face troubles
even if in Him we trust.

When your are suffering,
consider Jesus suffered too
yet, He remained faithful . . .
just as we must also do!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 4:12, 19

Beloved, think it not strange
concerning the fiery trial which
is to try you, as though some
strange thing happened unto you:

Wherefore let them that suffer
according to the will of God
commit the keeping of their
souls to him in well doing,
as unto a faithful Creator.

Spiritual Indifference ~

Spiritual shortsightedness,
is at a high
for satan has deceived
many an eye.

Eyes that once saw,
the Truth and the Way
now care more about
what others might say.

Spiritual deafness,
is out of control
for satan has mislead
many a soul.

Ears that once heard,
doctrine firm and sound
now follow any convenient
gospel that comes around.

Spiritual indifference,
brings about apathy
and with it there’ll be . . .
many a casualty!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 4:3-4

For the time will come when
they will not endure sound
doctrine; but after their own
lusts shall they heap to themselves
teachers, having itching ears;

And they shall turn away their
ears from the truth, and shall
be turned unto fab
les.

Battle Scars ~

Thank You Lord,
for taking me this far
though I may have
many battle scars.

But, from each one,
I have learned
for my own good
they were earned.

Thank you Lord,
for protecting me
through I may have
many scraps on knee.

For, I have found,
though I might slip
You always keep me
in Your powerful grip.

Thank you Lord,
for each scrap and scar
daily reminders of . . .
just who You are!

Plowing Through ~

Some days I need,
the Holy Spirit
to help me to . . .
plow right through it.

For there’s too many,
obstacles in my way
and I need His strength
to get around the day.

Some days I need,
the Holy Spirit to inspire
so I can get through
all the worldly mire.

I need His power,
to dig through the muck
otherwise I know
I would only get stuck.

Some days I need,
just to plow through
and Lord I know . . .
I couldn’t without You!

Be A Contender ~

Be a contender,
strive for the goal
fight for your faith
will all your soul.

Hold on to your belief,
never let it go
despite the punches
at you others throw.

Be aware of preachers,
who think nothing of sin
for if you follow them
the race you won’t win.

For many will deny,
in these last of days
Jesus own words about
following in His ways.

Be a contender,
for you are in for a fight
be alert as you battle . . .
for what you know is right!

~~~~~~

Jude 3.1

Beloved, when I gave all
diligence to write unto

it was needful for me to write
unto you, and exhort you that
ye should earnestly contend
for the faith which was once
delivered unto the saints.

Faith that defends,

Faith that opposes,
is one that eliminates
all of satan’s falsehoods
he worldly incorporates.

It’s a faith that is strong,
in knowing God’s Word
for it can discern heresy
when ever it’s heard.

Faith that defends,
opposes and rejects . . .
knows satan fiery arrows
the truth can deflect!

Beware, My Friend, Beware~

There is a battle brewing,

we must fix our minds on Jesus
so by fear we’re not tormented.

he is looking to devour
our faith and trust in God
by zapping us of our power.

He’s roaming all-around,
he’s as hungry and he is fierce
he is a greedy pursuer
looking for souls he can pierce.

He is filling our minds with lies,
for he is the grand accuser
he is aiming at our hearts
for he is the great seducer.

He is malicious in his pursuit,
he stalks us night and day
he is restless in his hounding
he lets nothing get in his way.

Our purser is the devil himself,
and to him we must be aware . . .
we must be vigilant and sober
so beware, my friend. beware!

Adjusting My Armor ~

Sometime my armor,
needs to be adjusted . . .
for with inattentiveness
it starts to get encrusted.

So with the Word of God,
my whole armor I lubricate
and with faithfulness
I grease up my breastplate.

Sometimes my armor,
needs fortification . . .
for I start to lose for God
my heartfelt appreciation.

So I take all the Verses,
enriched with gratitude
and enshroud my helmet
with a praise filled attitude.

Sometime my armor,
gets bent all out of shape . . .
so I apply the Gospel of Truth
so from satan I may escape.

I straighten up my shield,
with steadfast faith and trust
so when his fiery darts hit me . . .
my armor will not combust!

Ephesians 6:13-17

Wherefore take unto you

;

And your feet shod with the
preparation of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield

be able to quench all the fiery
darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,

Abiding In These Last Times ~

Abiding in these last times,
takes walking in the Light
so to be able to see . . .
all the evil forces we fight.

For walking in the Light,
will keep us very aware
to the many trappings

Abiding in the Truth,
takes remaining focused
being alert to doctrines
counterfeit and bogus.

For daily staying focused,
antichrists we’ll expose
and to their false gospel
we’ll be able to oppose.

Abiding in these last times,
takes the Light to find . . .
