With Due Diligence ~

 

With due diligence,
we must stay alert
so that satan’s darts
we can safely avert.

For he is the master,
of many disguises
obscuring the truth
is his evil enterprise.

We must keep sober,
we must stay aware
so into satan’s traps
we won’t be snared.

For he is out to kill,
devour and destroy
anyone who doesn’t fall
for the lures he employs.

With due consideration,
we must be forever watchful
for satan distorts the light . . .
and we must remain careful!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:16

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.

1 Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:

2 Corinthians 11:14

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

Some Food For Thought ~

The thief comes not to give,
rather to steal and take
so that you will not care
about your eternal fate.

He comes not to save,
but, to destroy and kill
so that you will not care
about knowing God’s will.

The thief comes not to bring,
endless peace and harmony
rather to take you with him
into hell’s perpetual agony.

He comes not to bring,
life abundantly
but rather to eat away
at your faith constantly.

The thief your salvation,
doesn’t give a squat
so I pray this will be . . .
some food for thought!

~~~~

John 10:7, 9-10

“I am the door: by me if any man
enter in, he shall be saved, and
shall go in and out, and find pasture.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal,
and to kill, and to destroy: I am come
that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly.”

1 Peter 5:8

because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:”

Satan Doesn’t Care ~

Satan does not care,
who his victim is . . .
all he cares about
is who he can call his.

He will take anyone,
who you are is no big deal
as long as your heart and soul
from God he can steal.

Satan does not care,
how he gets a hold of you
all he cares about
is how your mind he can skew.

He will use any method,
to confuse and deceive
so that he can get you
not in God to believe.

Satan does not care,
who he catches or devours
so be ever watchful . . .
lest you succumb to his powers!

walketh about,

I’ve Not The Power ~

In myself,
I haven’t the power
to outrun satan
when he’s out to devour.

So, my spiritual sneakers,
I am putting on . . .
to insure this race
can be victoriously won.

I’ll pull up my laces,
God’s Word will be the knot
so to satan’s snares
off guard, I’ll not be caught.

With my Bible verses,
I’ll plan each of my steps
so I can remain diligent
in following the concepts.

In myself,
I haven’t the power
but, with God’s strength
satan, I will overpower!

for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

I will run the way
of thy commandments,
when thou shalt
enlarge my heart.”

Destroying The Enemy ~

He comes unexpectedly,
he pounces when all is still
he leaps out of nowhere
so our thoughts he can steal.

He is quick and oh, so sly,
he is constantly deceiving
he tells us bold face lies
to keep us from believing.

He seeks to devour,
he stalks us night and day
he is the stumbling block
on the righteous way.

He is menacing,
he makes our flesh weak
he is evil and wicked
our souls he eagerly seeks.

He is our greatest enemy,
he must be destroyed
and the Word of God
on him must be deployed!

AWOL ~

AWOL ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

As soldiers of God,
we mustn’t be at ease
we can’t go and do
whatever we please.

We must always be,
in conflict mode
there’s no down time
in our battle code.

Our assigned posts,
we can never leave
in our daily fight
there is no reprieve.

We need to be ready,
with our battle plans
we must always obey
His fight commands.

As soldiers of God,
we mustn’t go AWOL
lest into Satan’s hands
we will surely fall!

Be Sober, Be Alert ~

Be Sober, Be Alert ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Tonight I want to warn you,
about the devil’s tricks . . .
and some of the masked ways
he loves to get his kicks.

He has a bag of treats,
filled with plenty of sweets
he uses them to tempt us
as he roams on our streets.

Inside his goodie bag,
are perversions of all kinds
some will warp our souls
others with deprave our minds.

The devil is pretty sneaky,
his treats are his disguises
he offers them with a smile
so we’ll believe in all his lies.

He is bold and he is daring,
on any door he will knock
looking to deceive all he can
as he goes around the block.

So tonight I am warning you,
be sober, vigilant and alert . . .
for the devil he will devour you
and you’ll end up being his dessert!

Disarming Satan ~

Resit and Renew ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

Every day there is a war,
and we must be prepared
lest in one of Satan’s traps
we find ourselves ensnared.

Before the warning bell,
sounds its harsh alarm
with the Word of God
we must be readily armed.

We must be equipped,
with our battle Verses
so we can fight off the lies
Satan eagerly disburses.

The Scriptures contain,
all the ammo that we need
if we use them in our fight
Satan’s army will concede.

In case of a surprise attack,
at the sound of the first alarm
just open up your  Bible . . .
and Satan you will disarm!

Beware ~

There is a battle brewing,
it is attacking every mind
it is assaulting Christians
with weapons of every kind.

We are in a for a real fight,
we need to be clear-headed
we must fix our minds on Jesus
so not to fear the dreaded.

Our adversary is like a lion,
and he is looking to devour
all of God’s faithful saints
in this, his final ferocious hour.

He’s roaming all-around,
he is 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 tender hearts
for he is the great seducer.

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

This greedy pursuer . . . is Satan,
and to him we must be aware
we must be vigilant and sober
so, beware ~ my friend ~ beware!
