The Love of The World ~

The love of the world,
is but foolishness . . .
all it has to offer
is truly meaningless.

It’s full of vanities,
prideful, greedy lust
one day all it offers
will tarnish and rust.

The love of the world,
is empty, grim and grave
once you desire of it
to it you’ll be a slave.

It teaming with sin,
too godless to mention
it’s where satan reigns
with all his henchman.

The love of the word,
is foolishness for sure
and the Light of Jesus . . .
is it’s only saving cure!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

Lord, Empty Me ~

Holy Spirit by Michaela Baltazar free photo #4686

Lord, empty me of me,
so, I can be filled with You
drain my soul of my pride
the stubbornness in it too.

Remove my self-importance,
take my smugness away
get rid of the very thought
I can do things my own way.

Lord, empty me of me,
the arrogance and conceit
to my own selfish will . . .
may I declare, a sound defeat.

Take out any lust or greed,
the need for self-indulgence
to any unrighteousness . . .
give me a zero tolerance.

Lord, empty me of me,
anything keeping me from You
so into my very soul . . .
the Holy Spirit can get through!

Romans 8:9

“But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit,
if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.
Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ,
he is none of his.”

Satan’s Tackle Box ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

A peek into Satan’s tackle box,
should give you the shutters . . .
for the lures he uses come
straight out of hell’s gutters.

He casts out the snare of pride,
when God tells us to wait
for he knows our inflated egos
are so easy for him to bait.

He loves to entice us,
with the bait of envy and greed
for he knows with our possessions
we are not willing to concede.

He draws from his box of lures,
the most treacherous bait of all . . .
wolves in sheep clothing
in hopes, all will heed their call.

He wants to entice all he can,
with tolerance for immorality
for he knows we use God’s love
to endorse a lenient rationality.

Yes, a peek into Satan’s tackle box,
should make every Christian run away
for the deception that he uses . . .
has already caused many to go astray!

Matthew 7:15
King James Version

“Beware of false prophets, which come to
you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly
they are ravening wolves.”
