The Deceitful Heart ~

The deceitful heart,
thinks it is good
cannot relate . . .
to this falsehood.

For at its core,
wickedness lies
keeping it from
becoming wise.

The deceitful heart,
thinks it is greater
then the one . . .
who is its creator.

For it tells itself,
it knows better
by believing in
its own chatter.

The deceitful heart,
won’t give Jesus the reins
for pure evilness
runs through its veins!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:9-10

The heart is deceitful
above all things,
and desperately wicked:
who can know it?

I the Lord search the heart,
I try the reins, even to give
every man according to his
ways, and according to the
fruit of his doings.

Disgust And Dismay~

With all that’s happening
in the world today . . .
it is hard not to feel
disgust and dismay.

For what we are seeing,
no eyes should witness
for it shows the depth
of man’s evilness

With all that’s going on,
in this world everyday
one can’t help to see
the amount of decay.

For what we are seeing,
can never be undone
as it shows the hatred
that’s being homespun.

With all that’s occurring,
in this world on a daily bases
one cannot deny . . . .
the wickedness in high places!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness
of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.

The Works Of The Flesh ~

The works of the flesh,
can clearly be seen
for in today’s world
its a everyday scene.

There is immorality,
of every type and kind
with new identities
for people to find.

The hatred is real,
gone is brotherly love
evil is sought after
more then God above.

Drugs have taken over,
souls they have ruined
so many on the street
are left abandoned.

Roaming on our streets,
be it night or day
angry people with guns
let their bullets spray.

The works of the flesh,
destroy, ruin and kill . . .
people from ever knowing
what for them is God’s will!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:19-21

Now the works of the flesh are manifest,
which are these; Adultery, fornication,
uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance,
emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

Envyings, murders, drunkenness,
revellings, and such like: of the which
I tell you before, as I have also told
you in time past, that they which do
such things shall not
inherit the kingdom of God.

The Foolish ~

Those who are foolish,
in God don’t believe
His mercy for them
they refuse to receive.

They think not to ask,
God for directions
for His Ways are met
with their objections.

They lust after the flesh,
and instant satisfaction
for their pleasers of self . . .
indulged gratification.

They seek after pleasure,
found in worldly things
not the grace and peace
hope and faith brings.

Those who are foolish,
let satan their mind’s rule
for their conduct is just like
that of a fool!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 14:1

The fool hath said in his heart,
There is no God. They are corrupt,
they have done abominable works,
there is none that doeth good.

Eternal Peace ~

We live in pressurized world,
we’re always under stress
but, we who rely on God
onward strain and press.

We’re hassled on every side,
pushed around and shoved
but, we who hope in Jesus
know how much we are loved.

We feel the weight of the world,
come crashing down on us
but, those of us who believe
always in God put their trust.

We’re fatigued over hearing,
daily all the horrific news
but, we who have faith in Jesus
joy over fear we will choose.

We live in a pressurized world,
the stress never seems to cease
but, we who trust in the Lord
will have eternal peace!

~~~~~~~~

John 16:33

“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.”

The Enemy Is Pouncing ~

Help me Lord,
for the enemy is pouncing
he has my heart
jumping and bouncing.

He wants me to be,
restless and powerless
so that I will feel
desperate and defenseless.

Help me Lord,
for the enemy is lunging
he has my thoughts
plummeting and plunging.

He wants me to be,
hopeless and helpless
so that I will feel
useless and hapless.

Help me Lord,
for the enemy is seeking
to devour my faith
with his lies beseeching!

Hope Envisioned ~

Father, may next year,
be one so different . . .
from this troubling one
that is now current.

Make it one of peace,
not hatred and division
make it one where hope
we all can envision.

Lord, may next year,
be one contrary
to the one we now have
if You should tarry.

Make it one where we,
can put away our disputes
so we may focus on . . .
Your many attributes.

Father, I pray next year,
won’t be like this one . . .
I pray more will find faith
in Jesus, Christ Your Son!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:44

But I say unto you,
Love your enemies,

do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which
despitefully use you,

I see The Anger ~

I see the anger,
I see the hate
I see the narrowing
of the straight gate.

I see the rage,
I see the violence
I see the decline
in God’s reliance.

I see the wrath,
I see the dissent
I see a nation
needing to repent.

I see the threat,
I see the horror
I see the tears
of evil’s terror.

I see the anger,
but I am wise
for I know it is . . .
satan in disguise!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:8

Cease from anger,
and forsake wrath:
fret not thyself in
any wise to do evil.

Flesh-Focused Lives ~

Flesh-focused eyes,
see what’s forbidden
they forget just why
they’ve been forgiven.

They lust after things,
temporal and worldly
becoming friends with
the sinful and ungodly.

Flesh-focused hearts,
have a greedy appetite
even though they once
followed the Light.

Now they only desire,
that which will kill
for they’ve allowed satan
their minds to steal.

Flesh-focused lives,
need to resist . . .
for satan will devour
if they persist!

~~~~~~~~

Genesis 2:17

But of the tree of the knowledge
of good and evil, thou shalt not
eat of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

because your adversary
the devil, as a roaring lion,

God’s Gift To Believers ~

God’s gift to believers,
is Jesus inside of you . . .
His strength and might
for everything you do.

For without Him inside,
we would be powerless
to fight off the rulers
of the present darkness.

God’s gift to believers,
is His Spirit living in you . . .
to help you hold on to
all that is pure and true.

For without His guidance,
we would be helpless
to battle the authorities
of today’s evilness.

God’s gift to believers,
is having eternal hope . . .
to help us each day
with the enemy to cope!

For we wrestle not against

Shifting Sand ~

Shifting sand,
blows with the wind
truth swept aside
until it is dimmed.

Twisted and distorted,
holds no moral ground
part-truths drifting
as being gospel sound.

Foundation teetering,
like a seesawing
as more from the truth
begin withdrawing.

Hanging and clinging,
to new doctrine taught
with out giving the truth
any degree of thought.

Shifting sand,
like the wind blows . . .
where no guilt is felt
is where the grain goes!

~~~~~

Ephesians 4.14

That we henceforth be
no more children
tossed to and fro,
and carried about with
every wind of doctrine,
by the sleight of men,
and cunning craftiness,
whereby they lie in wait

When The Beast Comes ~

When the beast raises,
at last its ugly head . . .
you’ll either take his mark
of else you’ll be dead.

For without the number,
of six-six-six imbedded
with satan you will be
eternally embedded.

When the beast comes,
on this earth to dwell
they’ll be no escaping
his most bloody hell.

For when the antichrist,
the whole world rules
satan will take out . . .
his most deadly of tools.

They only way to survive,
the coming destruction
is to turn to God now for . . .
your life-saving instructions!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 13:16-18

And he causeth all, both
small and great, rich and
poor, free and bond, to
receive a mark in their r
ight hand, or in their
foreheads:

And that no man might
buy or sell, save he that
had the mark, or the name
of the beast, or the number
of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that
hath understanding count
the number of the beast:
for it is the number of a man;
and his number is
Six hundred threescore and six.

This Is A Test ~

This is a test . . .
to see if we are willing
to see if we can withstand
their shameful grilling.

It’s a test of our faith,
our hope and our trust
by those who want to take
control over all of us.

This is an experiment . . .
to see if we will obey . . .
to see if from our beliefs
we’re willing to fall away.

It’s a test of our freedoms
our rights and our liberties
by wicked, evil forces
and godless authorities.

This is a test . . .
to see if we will conform
to the word’s ways
so to them we’ll transform!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed
to this world: but be ye
transformed by the
renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what

Wickedness ~

Wickedness,
here and higher places
evilness
right before our faces.

Darkness,
spreading all around
treachery
trying to keep us down.

Liars,
standing in front of us
deceivers
mandating us to trust.

Powers,
destroying democracy
rulers
full of hypocrisy.

Wickedness and evil,
requiring us to fight
with the Truth found . . .
in the Armor of Light!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12-13

For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness

wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the
whole armour of God, that ye
may be able to withstand in
the evil day, and having done
all, to stand.

therefore cast off the

Evil Everywhere ~

I can see the evil,
I see it everywhere
there is not a place
it will not spare.

It is universal,
throughout the world
a new kind of hatred
is being unfurled.

I can hear the terror,
chilling and disturbing
it’s full of violence
bloody screams curdling.

It’s a perilous scourge,
of dread, anxiety and fear
bringing with it tyranny
the closer it draws near.

I can see the evil,
I can hear it’s gasp
tis why onto Jesus . . .
I keep a firm clasp!

~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:1-5

This know also, that in the last
days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers
of their own selves, covetous,
boasters, proud, blasphemers,
disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection,
trucebreakers, false accusers,
incontinent, fierce, despisers
of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded,
lovers of pleasures more than
lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away.

Love Not This World

Do not love this world,
or anything of or in it
instead love the things
given by the Holy Spirit.

For if you are devoted,
to the good things eternally
you will not be overtaken
by the evil externally.

Do not love that which,
brings you earthly pleasure
rather keep your eyes on
your heavenly treasure.

For if you love God,
with all your heart and soul
over sin and temptation
you will have control.

Do not love the things,
the world offers you to do
instead put your love in . . .
what Jesus has done for you!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15

Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

In Desperate Need ~

Sinners in desperate need,
of salvation but they won’t heed
instead they follow their own folly
deprived and wicked, yet so jolly.

Sinners in dire straights,
can’t see their own corrupt traits
instead they party and carouse
to all things evil they make their vows.

Sinners on dangerous ground,
don’t want to turn their lives around
instead they play on satan’s turf
as on the waves of sin they surf.

Sinners in hopeless states,
can’t see damnation in their fates
instead they march to satan’s tune
not seeing their own eternal doom.

Sinners in desperate need,
if God’s salvation plan would heed
they would find rest and peace
and all evil would come to cease!

Lions and Wolves and Sheep ~

Beware of the wolves,
though they may look harmless
at any given moment
their lies they’ll unharness.

For at first they will appear,
just like one of God’s sheep
as with their falsehoods
they lullaby you to sleep.

Beware of the lions,
as the roam all around
at any moment’s notice
they’ll knock you to the ground.

For they are out to devour,
attack and to kill
those who follow and do
what is God’s righteous will.

Beware of the lying wolves
dressed in sheep clothing
beware of the devouring lions
who are constantly roaming!

Children Of Wrath ~

Son’s of disobedience,

Conformed to the world,

Their fleshly appetites,
are full of lustful craving
their earthly desires
are to sin enslaving.

not wanting anything to do

Earthly Treasures ~

I once set my sights,
on worldly things . . .
hoping true happiness
to me they would bring.

But, they soon corroded,
and all turned into rust
that is why it’s only God
in whom I put my trust.

I once relied on people,
to bring me pleasure
but they couldn’t convey
love I could treasure.

For, too often my bubble,
they would only bust
tis why it is in God
I have come to trust.

I once put my trust,
in people and things
but, now I look to God . . .
for the joy salvation brings!

The Things I Have Seen ~

I have seen morality fade,
the withering of man’s ethics
I have seen people lives canceled
by the pundits and skeptics.

I have seen a government,
become by greed corrupt
I have seen the rage of hate
on city streets erupt.

I have seen earthy riches,
turn cold the heart of man
I have seen lawlessness
disperse across the land.

I have seen the propaganda,
the promoting of hypocrisy
I have seen the erosion
of freedom and democracy.

I have seen the falling away,
of those who once believed
I have seen how the children
by education are deceived.

I have seen the fruit plummet,
far from the True Vine
I have seen the Gospel truth
become dull and benign.

But what I have yet to see,
are all the things eternal
and I know till Jesus come
all I see now is temporal!

2 Corinthians 4:18

While we look not at

What Happened To The Training ~

What happened to training,
our children in the Way
why are they from God . . .
turning so far away?

Why are they departing,
from the Truth and Life
why are they creating
in our world so much strife?

What happened to teaching,
our children about God
why are they leaving for
the road wide and broad?

Why are they rebellious,
so willfully disobedient
why are their morals
so carelessly lenient?

What happen to our children,
why have they left the flock
could it be their parents . . .
they too, chosen God to mock?

Evildoers ~

Evildoers are all around,
with haughty eyes they do seek
all those who they believe . . .
are the world’s meek and weak.

But, we who trust in the Lord,
have nothing to really fear
though they our reputations . . .
want to destroy and smear.

Evildoers roam the earth,
with lying tongues they preach
fake reports to the masses
so their discord they can teach.

But, we who have the truth,
know these things God does hate
we follow not what they say . . .
but, we keep to the way straight.

Evildoers with wicked plans,
they do surround us all around
but, we who trust in our Lord
in Him keep our mind’s sound!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 6:16-19

These six things doth
the Lord hate:
yea, seven are an
abomination unto him:

A proud look, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed

An heart that deviseth wicked
imaginations, feet that be swift
in running to mischief,

A false witness that speaketh lies,
and he that soweth
discord among brethren.

The Age Of Aggression ~

We are living in,
the age of aggression
a time God’s faithful
are facing rejection.

It’s a era of change,
a time of redirection

a loss of connection.

It’s a movement,
without any reflection
on seeking God’s face
or His protection.

It’s a period of shifting,
from God a secession
a hateful rebellion
full of provocation.

We are living in,

but, we who have faith
won’t fall into depression!

Who Is Hindering Your Faith ~

Who is hindering your faith,
who is standing in the way
what is holding you back
why are you running away?

Who is causing you to doubt,

what has a grip on you
why can’t from it you release?

Who is messing with your trust,
who is making you confused
what has you in a turmoil
why is your mind consumed?

Who is keeping you in fear,
who is behind your dread
what is playing with your beliefs
why is it messing up your head?

from you he will flee and run!

that ye should not
obey the truth?

James 4:7

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

Love Not The World ~

Too often our love for God,
grows lackluster and dim . . .
turning cold our desire
to follow after Him.

We lose our focus,
in a world full of greed
till we no longer count
on God to meet our need.

Our eyes start to ache,
after things lustful
till our bodies into sin
eagerly fall and tumble.

Our arrogance and pride,
starts to get in our way
causing us to forget . . .
one day all will pass away.

Too often our love for God,
grows lusterless and dim
but, we who love not the world . . .
will spend eternity with Him!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-17

Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh, and the
lust of the eyes, and the pride
of life, is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.
