Tag Archives: Be Not A Friend to The World

Good Morning Quote ~12.10.19~


To Know the Fear of God ~

Oh, to know the fear,
of God that is awesome
is to learn how to live
in this world with caution.

For, His Word warns us,
to be not the world’s friend
or with it godless ways
to mix in or to blend.

Oh, to know the wisdom,
of Godly instruction
is to know being of the world
leads to death and destruction.

For, His Word cautions all,
to be alert and sober
for the time Jesus returns
is always getting closer.

Oh, to know the fear,
that makes one respectful
is to honor God . . .
by living a life not regretful!

~~~~~~~

Proverbs 15:33

The fear of the LORD is
the instruction of wisdom;
and before honour is humility.

Walking Wisely ~

 

Oh, Father I thank you,
today for Your grace
for the wisdom I need
in this world I’ll face.

For I know of the evil,
I will witness today
and walking wisely
must be my mainstay.

Oh, Father I thank you,
for Your constant guidance
as I strive for perfection
in a world full of defiance.

For, I know the perversion,
that is going out there
for to its ungodliness
Your Word keeps me aware.

Oh, Father I thank you,
for the wisdom You give
for without it I don’t know . . .
how in this world I’d live!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-17

“See then that ye walk circumspectly,
not as fools, but as wise,

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise,
but understanding what
the will of the Lord is.”

Sticky Note From God ~10.03.18~


Offend Me Lord ~

Offend me Lord,
with Your Word
let me be convicted
by the truth heard.

Insult me Lord,
with Your commands
so with false teachers
I’ll not shake hands.

Offend me Lord,
let me feel the sting
that Your reproof
in my life will bring.

Shock me Lord,
let my ears hear
no sinner in heaven
will You let near.

Outrage me Lord,
go ahead and offend
so with the world . . .
I’ll not be a friend!

~~~~~

John 6.61

“When Jesus knew in himself that his
disciples murmured at it,
he said unto them,
Doth this offend you?”

Heaven Getting ~

Lord, let me not honor You,
with my lips only
but with a heart that is . . .
devoted to You solely.

Let me not profess,
my undying love to You
only to go into the world
and follow what others do.

Let me not disobey,
the commands You taught
by living a life of hypocrisy
and doing whatever I want.

Let me not think,
it’s all about heaven getting
but, about right here and now
and any sin that is besetting.

Lord, let me not fool myself,
thinking hidden sin You can’t see
lest I hear You say one day . . .
you never really knew Me!

~~~~~~

Matthew 7:21-23

“Not every one that saith unto me,
Lord, Lord, shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven; but he that
doeth the will of my Father which
is in heaven.

Many will say to me in that day,
Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in thy name? and in thy name have
cast out devils? and in thy name
done many wonderful works?

And then will I profess unto them,
I never knew you: depart from me,
ye that work iniquity.”

The World’s Wilderness ~

The world is a wilderness,
with strange and eerie places
and I could not travel in it . . .
without Jesus and His graces.

I know I would get lost,
in the darkness in front of me
for, without His saving light
the wickedness I’d not see.

The world is a wilderness,
with dark and scary pathways
and I would stumble on them
if Jesus wasn’t with me always.

For, I would not be able to see,
the clear and present danger
of following after those . . .
who were to Him a stranger.

The world is a wilderness,
I need to navigate through
tis why I keep my Shepherd
and His flock in my view!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 78:52

“But made his own people
to go forth like sheep,
and guided them in the
wilderness like a flock.”

Do Not Love The World ~

Do not love the world,
nor the things in or of it
for, to your soul . . .
there’s no lasting benefit.

For, the world’s full of pride,
promoting fleshly lust
to its godless customs
you mustn’t ever adjust.

Do not become a part,
of the world’s ways
do not on its sinful desires
let your heart set its gaze.

For, if you do you’ll find,
it’s so easy to conform
as the world’s proven to be
satan’s earthly platform.

Do not love the world,
for it is perishing . . .
there is nothing in it
worth you cherishing!

~~~~~~~

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.”

Give Up, Never ~

give-up-never-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Don’t you quit,
give up, never
from God’s ways
do not sever.

Do not give in,
don’t succumb
a part of this world
do not become.

Don’t you depart,
get not blown away
be not that sheep
that’s gone astray.

Do not be adapted,
be not conformed
instead in Jesus
be transformed.

Don’t you quit,
but be renewed
lest you’ll have
a worldly attitude!

~~~~~~~

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 is
that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”

DEPLORABLE!

hillary_clinton_testimony_to_house_select_committee_on_benghazi

Did you hear the news,
I am statistically horrible . . .
in Clinton’s own words
I am grossly deplorable.

I am a phobic,
Islalmo, xeno and homo
in other words she thinks
I am an intolerable dodo.

I am a hateful bigot,
a sexist and a racist
I’m one of the unfortunate
not supporting her bases.

According to Mrs. Clinton,
I’m a disgusting basket case
oh, Father I will pray . . .
she’ll lose the upcoming  race.

Did you hear the news,
Hilary thinks I’m horrible
but, I think its her moral’s
that are shamefully deplorable!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:1-4

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;”

King James Version
Public Domain

This poem is based on Hilary’s Statement

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic,
you could put half of Trump’s supporters
into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables.’
Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic,
xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.
And unfortunately, there are people like that,
and he has lifted them up.”

Humble Submission ~

Humble Submision ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Lord, humbly I come,
my life I submit
for You to do . . .
whatever with it.

Help me to know,
Your perfect will
keep me on the road
to Calvary’s hill.

Help me to resist,
sinful temptation
let me not fall under
Satan’s sedation.

Help me to move,
closer to You
keep my soul away
from a world’s view.

Help me to have,
a heart that grieves
whenever to Yours
I refuse to cleave.

Lord, humbly I come,
I lift my life to You
for You to do with it . . .
what You must do!

James 4:10

“Humble yourselves in the sight
of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”

I Don’t Want Religion ~

a-good-church CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I don’t want a religion,
that’s cold and impersonal
I want an experience
that’s eternally, irreversible.

I don’t want a church,
that’s entertaining and fun
I want a place to learn
how from Satan, I can run.

I don’t want a pastor,
that’s witty and amusing
I want a man of God . . .
who’s Holy Spirit consuming.

I don’t want a friendship,
with the world and its ways
I want to have fellowship
with those who worship and praise.

Lord, I don’t want to be religious,
just to go through the motions
I don’t want a religion . . .
where sinning is ever an option!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 20:28

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves,
and to all the flock, over the which
the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers,
to feed the church of God, which he hath
purchased with his own blood.”

Don’t Be Hard Hearted ~

Heart of Stone used with permission forgodsglorybibleversepictures

Don’t be hard hearted,
to God’s righteous ways
repent of your every sin
so joy may fill your days.

Do not turn bitter or cold,
be not either lukewarm
let the Holy Spirit’s fire . . .
come upon you like a storm.

Return all you wanderer’s,
all who have backslidden . . .
to greed, lust and immorality
beg your final good ridden.

Be not a friend to this world,
do no become satan’s prey
give back your life to Jesus
return home to Him today.

Do not be hard hearted,
do not turn a blind eye . . .
to the evilness in this world
say farewell and goodbye!

~~~~~~~

“Happy is the man that feareth alway:
 but he that hardeneth his heart
shall fall into mischief.”

Estranged ~

world-changers ~CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When I look around,
so much has changed . . .
it seems as if to this world
I have become estranged.

What it thinks is amusing,
entertaining and fun . . .
are the exact same things
everyday I must shun.

Its thoughts and views,
are liberal, open and wide
but, I don’t let in my mind
sinful pleasures to abide.

What to others is appealing,
enjoyable and pleasing
only leaves my soul . . .
mourning and grieving.

The world can’t see the sin,
the immorality, the wrong
and it is because of this
I know in it, I don’t belong.

I feel like a stranger,
in my very own country
and to its ways ~ I refuse
to be intimate or friendly!

~~~~~~~~

James 4:4

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not
that the friendship of the world is enmity
with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend
of the world is the enemy of God.”
