From The Get-Go ~

From the beginning,
God loved His creation
it brought to His heart
pure joy and elation.

But, then one evil day,
satan into it entered in
introducing to man
temptation and sin.

From the get-go,
man always had a choice
to walk with God
or listen to satan’s voice.

But man chose to follow,
the ways of the devil
bringing grief to God’s heart
on every single level.

From the beginning,
God knew the mind of man
so He gave His only Son . . .
to fulfill salvation’s plan!

~~~~~~

Genesis 3:2-4

And the woman said unto the serpent,
We may eat of the fruit of the trees
of the garden:

But of the fruit of the tree which is
in the midst of the garden,
God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it,
neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman,
Ye shall not surely die:

Genesis 6:6

And it repented the Lord
that he had made man on
the earth, and it grieved
him at his heart.

What Are You Sowing?

Wheat 2 by Simeon Hughes free photo #2858

Some sow to the spirit,
some sow to the flesh . . .
some will be found in the wheat
some will be left in the thresh.

Some sow seeds of goodness,
some sow seeds of evil . . .
some will be found faithful
some will be left for the devil.

Some sow seeds of love,
some sow seeds of hate . . .
some will be found victorious
some will be left at the wide gate.

Some sow seeds of generosity,
some sow seeds of greed and lust
some will be in the Book of Life
some will burn in their disgust.

Some sow seeds of repentance,
some sow seeds of sin’s design . . .
some will be found up in heaven
some will be left behind!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 3:17

“Whose fan is in his hand,
and he will throughly purge his floor,
and will gather the wheat into his garner;
but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.”

Those Who Love the Lord ~

Hope in a Dark World by Chris Vasquez free photo #5638

Those who love the Lord,
are not a part of this world
they hate the evil in it
they don’t give sin a whirl.

They know they are safe,
from the hand of the wicked
for, Jesus guards their life
to lust they’re not addicted.

The world is not a friend,
they know it’s their enemy
they want nothing to do
with its ungodly chemistry.

They stay out of the devils way,
into his territory they don’t go
they ask Jesus to shine His light
so in the darkness ~ He will glow.

Those who love the Lord,
in this world ~ they don’t mesh
for they know there is no joy
in the works of the flesh!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15
King James Version

“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.”

Satan’s Holiday!

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

I don’t like Halloween,
I believe it’s Satin’s parade
and for all of his victims
my heart is very afraid.

I watch witches and vampires,
march up to my front door
looking for some candy
but I want to give them more.

I want to tell them about Jesus,
and the sweetness of His grace
I want to wipe the bloody smiles
from their evil-looking face.

I want to share God’s goodness,
give them a taste of heaven above
I want to reveal Satan’s tricks
and tell them about God’s love.

I don’t like Halloween,
for I know it’s Satan’s holiday
and I pray tonight from him
I can turn ~ all of them away!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Acts 26:18
King James Version

“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light,
and from the power of Satan unto God,
that they may receive forgiveness of sins,
and inheritance among them which are sanctified
by faith that is in me.”

The god Of This Age ~

Be watchful of the Wicked One,
for he is the Great Deceiver
he is roaming around like a Lion
looking to devour every believer.

He is like the Dragon of Old,
still spewing out his poison mire
be careful of this godless Beast
or you’ll spend eternity in his fire.

For, he is the King of Babylon,
the King of the Bottomless Pit
where he’s making plenty of room
for the lost and unsaved to fit.

Beware of the Prince of the Air,
the Ruler of the World, the Thief
for he is the Grand Old Liar
and wants to rob you of your belief.

He is the Evil and Lawless one,
our Adversary, the Father of Lies
and it is his soul’s desire
that all shall look into his eyes.

He is the Man of Sin, our Accuser,
the Tempter and your Murderer
he is the Power of Darkness within
he is Satan, the Serpent Lucifer.

Be on the alert for the Anti Christ,
the Angel of Light, the god of this Age
he will transform himself into peace
before he sets off his bloody rage!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:2
King James Version

“Wherein in time past
ye walked

according to the
course of this world,

according to the prince
of the power of the air,

the spirit that now worketh
in the children of disobedience:”

I’ve Been Hacked!

Hazard by Tyler Thompsom free photo #5428

I’ve been hacked,
my computer has been attacked
and I’m pulling our my hairs
with the when’s, how’s and where’s.

I’ve been compromised,
my password has been modified
and I’m going crossed eyed
now that my access has been denied.

I’ve been taken down,
I’m not much fun to have around
and I’m doing all I can not to cry
while I figure out the who and why.

I know the devil is behind this,
he’d have my poetry go into the abyss
and he hates what I have to say
for I speak of the truth and the way.

I’ve been hacked,
my computer has been attacked
but I know the Lord has His reason
and I will be back in due season!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please bear with me as I figure out
this intrusion for my seclusion   🙂


Resist The Devil

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Feeling tempted,
can’t keep the devil at bay
caught up in his lure
as you go about your day?

Can’t fight against,
all the lusts in the world
can’t put off the suggestions
the devil loves to hurl?

Is pride tripping you up,
are his lies chasing after you
does the devil entice you
to do the things that you do?

Getting overly anxious,
filling up with dread and fear
feeling the burden
of not having Jesus near?

Well, don’ you give up,
don’t let that old devil win
lest you go about
in the stench of your sin.

Submit your life to God,
and follow His ways
resist the devil and he’ll flee
from the rest of your days!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:7
King James Version

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

With Fear and Trembling

Once ~ I use to fear God . . .
and trembled at His holy name
hearing about “Fire and Brimstone”
reminded me of hell’s flame.

I would shiver and I’d shake,
when I heard about His wrath
and I knew that I had better
keep to the narrow path.

I would listen to my preacher,
talk about God’s end-time plan
and how Satan was prepared
to pluck me out ~ from His hand.

But, as the years went by . . .
I no longer heard these words
and when the flame died out
I began to fall ~ backwards.

Going to church became fun,
for God’s love is a wonderful thing
my pastor dwelled on my life-purpose
and all the blessings it would bring.

With all condemnation set aside,
I could focus on what drove me
so I went out into the world
to have me a real good look-see.

Oh, what I saw . . .
lit the fires of hell right back up
and once again, I was full of fear
for I saw what was in Satan’s cup.

It is true we must love others,
but their sin we still must expose
what kind of love would we possess
if we left them to hell’s throes?

So if you are a roving seeker,
you still need to fear God’s wrath
and it would be wise for you to hurry
back onto the straight and narrow path.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:14
King James Version

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
