Redeeming Today ~

Today I’m redeeming,
the time God’s allotted
I’ll use it wisely
so evil can be spotted.

I am going to walk,
so ever cautiously
my steps I will pan
very carefully.

Today I’m redeeming,
every hour of my day
I’ll be ready to face
whatever comes my way.

My armor I’ll have on,
into God’s Word I will slip
so that into temptation
I will not fall or trip.

Today I’m redeeming,
cashing in on God’s power
for I know the day is evil
and satan’s out to devour!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:15-16

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

Redeeming the time,
because the days are evil.”

Sticky Note From God ~07.31.18~


Where’s The Zeal ~

Where’s the zeal,
where did it go . . .
where’s the burning desire
the narrow way to show?

Where’s the zest,
where’s the utterance
why do we now have
for sin tolerance?

Where’s the willingness,
where’s the dedication
where’s the readiness to lead
others to true salvation?

Where’s the eagerness,
where’s the thirst
why is the word sin
now on the blacklist?

Where’s the salt and light,
where did they go . . .
why has repentance
hit a new low!

1 Timothy 4:1

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times some shall
depart from the faith, giving heed
to seducing spirits,
and doctrines of devils;”

Prayer Prepares Us ~

prayer-changes-you-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Prayer changes,
our thoughts
keeps our eyes on
satan’s plots.

Prayer prepares us,
to hold on fast
keeps our faith
sober and steadfast.

Prayer strengthens,
us with power
supplies courage
to the final hour.

Prayer keeps us,
fervently watchful
helps us to remain
fiercely faithful.

Prayer changes,
our thinking
it readies our eyes
for the twinkling!

“But the end of all things
is at hand:
be ye therefore sober,

Age of Rejection ~

Age of Rejection ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

We are living in,
the age of rejection
a time where we see
from God a defection.

It’s an era of change,
a time of redirection
from the Truth and Way
we’ve lost the connection.

It’s a movement,
of rebellion and pride
where our sinful lusts
we no longer hide.

It’s a real revolution,
it is not an illusion
for Satan has control
of all of the confusion.

We are living in the age,
of  times perilous . . .
for so many hearts to God
have turned cold and callous!

~~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:1

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

Just Passing Through ~

Just Passing Through ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

This world is not my home,
I’m just passing through
and I must do my best
not to weaken to its view.

Yet, its thrust before me,
whether I like it or not
but, I must not concede
to the lies that are taught.

It seems wherever I go,
I find angry opposition
so I must keep my mind
in total transformation.

Often I get attacked,
for not giving my approval
so every day my mind
needs constant renewal.

This world is not my home,
I’m just passing through
and Lord I know each day
it’s Your will, I need to do!

~~~~~~~~~~~

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.”

The Wicked ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

The wicked enter through,
the gate of pride and lust
worldly riches pave the path
for it’s in “things” they do trust.

They walk with the ungodly,
party with the irreligious
depravity sleeps in their beds
their covers are sacrilegious.

The wicked live in the dark,
their lives are full of greed
they look to the immoral law
to fill their wants and needs.

They do not have a future,
they’re on a road of no hope
drinking and carousing
is the way for them to cope.

The wicked’s end is miserable,
for eternity they’ll spend in hell
but, they who follow God’s Word
in heaven with Him ~ will  dwell!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 1:1-2

“Blessed is the man that walketh not
in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
 nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord;
and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”

How Much Longer ~

When Will it End ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Troubles, troubles, troubles . . .
they are everywhere
anxieties, hardships, burdens
all kinds of different cares.

Sorrows, sorrows, sorrows . . .
so much pain and distress
grief, misery, suffering
all kinds of different stress.

Tears, tears, tears . . .
so many are being shed
persecution, torment, anguish
all kinds of different dread.

Wars, wars, wars . . .
at home and abroad
murders, slaughters, executions
all kinds of different squads

Troubles, sorrows, tears, wars . . .
when will it all come to an end
how much longer heavenly Father
till Jesus, You finally send?

Soul Reachers ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Alberta Harvest Creation Swap ~

You don’t need a megaphone,
to spread the Good News . . .
you don’t need a soap box
for others to hear God’s views.

You don’t need to be a scholar,
or go to theology school
you don’t need a church class room
to teach the Golden Rule.

You don’t need a billboard,
or stand on the street corner
you don’t need a loud-speaker
to be an end-time warner.

You don’t need a million dollars,
or a church’s mega building
you don’t have to spend a cent
to tell about the Kingdom coming.

Everyone can be a witness,
you don’t have to be a preacher
right where you are you can be . . .
for Jesus, a soul reacher!

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

John 4:35

“Say not ye, There are yet four months,
and then cometh harvest? behold,
I say unto you, Lift up your eyes,
and look on the fields;
for they are white already to harvest.”

The Color Of Things to Come ~

Fall leaves free photo on Creationswap by James Cronin

I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
drifting on Autumn’s breeze
floating, gently to the ground.

They lay in all their splendor,
till rake, piles them knee-high
for eye to see or foot to crush
as they wither away and die.

Fall reminds me of the colors,
of things that are yet to come
Jesus arriving in all His glory
to set up His eternal Kingdom.

His eye will see those waiting,
eagerly for His return
while He crushes under foot
those who gave Him no concern.

As I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
I pray everyday I can turn . . .
just one sinner’s heart around!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 5:19-20

“Brethren, if any of you do err from
the truth, and one convert him;

“Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner
from the error of his way shall save a soul
from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.”

Wolves ~

WOlves ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, I’m having a problem
seeing things in Your light
for, there’s so much deceit
that I daily have to fight.

I’m having difficulty,
with finding the straight way
for, there’s so many preachers
with something different to say.

I’m having a struggle,
with finding the Gospel facts
for, there’s so many Bibles
where the truth is not intact.

 I’m having some issues,
with getting to the narrow gate
for, there’s so many leaders
who have a shifty gait.

Lord, I’m not going to listen,
to what the wolves have to say
for, I just don’t recognize . . .
the Truth, the Light or the Way.

There’s A Conspiracy ~

Satan's Plan by Shad Fos free ophoto #2507

There is a conspiracy,
a plot is in the air . . .
if you’d really look into it
it’ll give you quite a scare.

There is a heist,
a robbery of our senses
one day you and I . . .
will be left with no defenses.

There is a plot,
a scheme to dominate
our invaders are full
of nothing, but pure hate.

There is a storm,
an incursion to override
life and liberty . . .
till we are all polarized.

There is an attack,
an invasion of our rights
we’ll be left unprotected
with no means in which to fight.

There is a plan,
to take away our freedom
and soon they’ll usher in
an evil One-World kingdom!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Daniel 7:23
King James Version

“Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be
the fourth kingdom upon earth,
which shall be diverse from all kingdoms,
and shall devour the whole earth,
and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.”

Oh, The Things I’ve Seen ~

The Grass Withers 2 ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~used with permission DoorPost Verses

I have seen morality fade,
the withering of man’s ethics
I have seen Love’s first bloom
be shattered, by the skeptics.

I have seen evil governments,
that are wicked and corrupt
I have seen terrorist bombs
on peaceful streets erupt.

I have seen earthy riches,
make the wealthiest go bust
I have seen the awful pain
due to hearts full of lust.

I have seen Satan destroy,
families with booze and dope
I have seen little children
give up all trust and hope.

I have seen the falling away,
of those who once believed
I have seen to their First Love
they no longer heed or cleave.

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

But, what I have not seen,
is for God to change His mind
His Word still gives sight . . .
to those who are ~ yet blind!

The Latter Rain ~

The Later Rain ~ CHRISTIan poetry by deborah ann

I can feel the sprinkling,
of the latter rain . . .
I can see the first drops
falling on a world full of pain.

I can tell the time is near,
by the heart-broken cries
I can hear the thunder roar
over the false prophets lies.

I can perceive the drought,
upon all nations of the land
I can envision the deadly hunger
as God releases Armageddon’s plan.

I can sense the precipitation,
of wars and rumors of every kind
I can recognize the dribble . . .
Satan’s uses on man’s mind.

I can see disease’s down pouring
as it spreads from coast to coast
I can tell of the ungodly leaders
teeming to be the Anti-Christ host.

I can hear the violent sputter,
beneath the earth’s shaky crust
I can see how sin has drenched
the world in greed and lust.

I can sense a deluge coming,
when the latter rain will fall
I can hear God’s warning  . . .
” This is your wake-up call!”

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 24:6
King James Version

” For many shall come in my name, saying,
I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of
wars: see that ye be not troubled: for
all these things must come to pass, but
the end is not yet”

The Harvest is Near ~

Nature by Sandara Lee free photo Creation Swap

The seed has been planted,
for every nation to hear
the fields are now ready
the harvest is almost near.

The season is turning right,
the time is drawing close
soon our Savior will come
but the hour no one knows.

The Word has gone out,
the desert rose is a bloom
in God’s heavenly mansion
there’s still plenty of room.

The soil has been prepared,
the sacrifice has been made
the time is running out
for lost souls to be swayed.

The showers have increased,
the outpouring is on the rise
and the day Jesus comes
will be twinkling in our eyes.

The message of hope continues,
it will to the very end . . .
still we don’t how much longer
the time ~ God plans to extend!

Summer’s End . . .

The Grass withers Used with permission DoorPost Verses on facebook

The rose has all but paled,
the sweet-pea has gone to seed
where the daffodils once swayed
is now covered with a deadly weed.

The daisy has lost its last petal,
in a fight for love or not
and the last of the pansies
are looking a little fraught.

The lavender has now faded,
along with its aromatic scent
by the looks of the gardenia
it too, will soon be spent.

As I look around my garden,
I see summer’s timely end
and I sense Jesus’ second coming
is just around the bend!

Perhaps Today ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will come
perhaps today I’ll see
my Lord on the cloud
coming down for me.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will call
perhaps today I’ll hear
the sound of His trumpet
telling me He is here.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will show
perhaps today I’ll meet
my Savior up in the air
oh, wouldn’t that be sweet.

Perhaps today . . .
my Lord will come
perhaps today I’ll be
with Him forever
in blissful eternity!

Left Behind!

Two Women from Doorposr Verses on Facebook used with permission

Will I be her?
Will I be the one
who’s left behind . . .
will I be that one?

It’s a question,
we all need to raise
are you, will you . . .
be the one who stays?

What does it take,
for us to be taken?
What do we need to do
so we’re not the one forsaken?

Will you remain,
are you sure, you are going?
Or will you be left behind
abandoned, and never knowing?

Where Are You Lord ~

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

Lord, where are You,
when are you coming for me?
for in the darkness of this world
Your light I can no longer see.

I don’t understand,
I just don’t get it . . .
and right now my soul
needs from You a lift.

Where are you now,
where are you taking me
there is so much going on
that I don’t want to see.

For my soul is broken,
and it aches . . .
for the unsaved
it truly breaks.

Dark and light,
just do not mix
and only You
have the fix.

I am caught in a world,
that is bitter-sweet
and I am up against
so many I meet.

Lord, You are the only hope
that I cling to
and I so need Your light
to come shining through.

So, I say come Lord Jesus,
do not tarry . . .
for the burden of this world
my heart  can no longer carry!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 5:20

The Road Most Traveled ~

The Road Most Traveled On ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There is a road most traveled on,
I see plenty of people on it today
you too may know of it . . .
for it leads to spiritual decay.

It is as wide as it is long,
it’s paved with greed and pride
and those who travel on it
are arrogant, smug and snide.

Satan has smoothed the way,
with lust and every immorality
and the throngs gladly follow
for it is the “New Age” reality.

On their journey they take along,
their love for ungodly things
and if you get in their way
animosity at you, they will fling.

Sadly, our country is on this road,
and its leading to total devastation
you too may know of it . . .
for it’s in the Book of Revelation!

~~~~~~~~

1 Timothy 4:1-2
King James Version

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times

some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits,

and doctrines of devils;
Speaking lies in hypocrisy;

having their conscience
seared with a hot iron;”

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

according to the prince

The Storm Maker

BW Storm by Danielle Hartland free photo #1374

He is the storm maker,
He stirs up the seas
He is the force behind the wind
He’ll bring the world to its knees.

He is the voice in the thunder,
He’s calling all to repent
He is the lightning in the skies
on His existence ~ He won’t relent.

He is the quake in the earth,
He’s the tremor in the mountain
He  is the scorch on the desert
He’s the only life-giving fountain.

He’s the searing heat of the sun,
He is global warming . . .
and He wants the world to heed
to His repeated warning.

He is the Alpha and Omega,
the Creator of all things
and soon upon this earth
His judgments He’ll bring!

Wake Up Call

English: The face of a black windup alarm clock

The alarm has been set,
the hour is drawing near
and in these final moments
the wake-up call is clear.

The signs are all there,
just as we’ve been told
and it’s time to speak up
and for God to be bold.

Just take a look around,
and tell me what you see
haters of good and God
are pretty evident to me.

You can see the ungodly,
up and down our streets
marching in defiance
on their self-serving feet.

Standing on our corners,
you’ll find the unforgiving
those who love to boast about
their unholy way of living.

Look at the love of money,
and other’s ungratefulness
the way people lie and cheat
about their own recklessness.

Seated in our churches,
are those who once confessed
but now their sins they deny
but they still want God to bless.

It time to listen up,
and hear the warning bell
lest you be left behind
and spend eternity in hell!

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

2 Timothy 3:1-5
King James Version

“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.”
