When You Walk in The Light ~

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is a lot of confessing
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of acknowledging,
the sinfulness we daily fight
there is a lot of repenting
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of recognizing,
the evil we daily fight
there is a lot of conviction
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of fessing up.
to  the vices we daily fight
there is a lot to let go of
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is true repentance
when you walk in the light!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7-9

“But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light, we have
fellowship one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ
his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin,
we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from
all unrighteousness.”

A Reminder ~

a-reminder-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Satan is evil,
he’s a deceiver
he is out to get
every believer.

He is a liar,
he is a thief
he only causes
eternal grief.

Satan is devious,
he is ruthless
he wants to render
you for God useless.

He is scheming,
he is cunning
after your soul
he is gunning.

Satan is a slanderer,
he’s a counterfeiter
he wants to make you
in Jesus a quitter.

Satan is evil,
he is an eye blinder
lest you forget . . .
tis why this reminder!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 12:9

“And the great dragon
was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan,
which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth,
and his angels were cast out with him.”

Satan’s Defeat ~

Satan's Defeat ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He is subtle
he is sly
he is cool
he is spry.

He is elusive,
he is real
he is raw
he is steel.

He is evil,
he is mean
he is wicked
he is lean.

He is cunning,
he is roaring
he is sleek
he is imploring.

He is bad,
he is awful
he is subtle
he is dreadful.

He is Satan,
he’ll be defeated
when with God
all is completed!

~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:3

“But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve
through his subtilty,
so your minds should be
corrupted from the simplicity
that is in Christ.”

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!

1 Peter 5:8

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

What If ~

~CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~Tears by John Emery free photo #14718

What if there was no pain,
no grief, no more misery
no tears left to collect
no more human agony?

What if there was no hunger,
no thirst, nor starvation
no want or need left unmet
no dying from prostration?

What if there was no murder,
no killing, nor slaughter
no more innocent victim
no soul so cold and bitter?

What if there was no hatred,
no disgust, nor loathing
no heart so full of evil
no more darkness looming?

What if there was no pain,
no sorrow, no grief, no tear
what if Jesus never promised
to come again and live here?

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away.”

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.”

I Hate the Devil ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

In case you don’t know,
I really hate the devil . . .
he’s poison, he’s toxic
he’s deadly and full of evil.

He’s wicked, He’s a liar,
he’s a murderer, he’s a thief
all he brings into our lives
is torment, pain and grief.

I just can’t stand him,
he makes my stomach churn
for I know there are many
with him, in hades who’ll burn.

He’s wretched, he’s vile,
destruction is all he brings
he taunts, he tempts us
with useless worldly things.

I really hate the devil,
in case you cannot tell . . .
and I wish he was already
burning up in hell!

~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 20:10
King James Version

“And the devil that deceived them was cast into
the lake of fire and brimstone,
where the beast and the false prophet are,
and shall be tormented day and night
for ever and ever.”

Amen and Hallelujah!

Redeemed ~

Redeemed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann/image CreationSwap

Delivered, I’ve been delivered,
from the bottomless pit
pulled out, plucked away
no longer stuck in sin’s grit.

Liberated, I’ve been liberated,
from Satan’s binding chains
cut loose, unleashed
no longer does sin entertain.

Rescued, I’ve been rescued,
from the evil one who harms
separated from, released
no longer one of Satan’s charms.

Redeemed, I’ve been forgiven,
from my sins I’ve been set free
all because of the day . . .
the Lamb of God died for me!

the forgiveness of sins,

Saved ~

Saved ~  CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I make no excuses,
no false pretense
I am just a sinner
I have no defense.

Born of rebellion,
conceived in sin
envy and spite
were my closest kin.

Dead in trespasses,
deceitful to the core
greed and pride oozed
out of every pore.

Disobedient to God,
just like in Eve’s story
wickedness and evil
stole all of His glory.

I make no excuse,
a sinner ~ that I am
but, I’ve been saved
by the blood of the Lamb!

~~~~~~~~~

John 1:29
King James Version

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him,
and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh
away the sin of the world.

as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

Desensitized ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Lord, when I look around,
it’s not hard for me to find
those who reject You
in their hearts and their minds.

They live for the moment,
think nothing of the day
when they’ll stand before You
or what they’ll have to say.

They follow their own desires,
on others they impose
their freedoms and their rights
but don’t want their sin exposed.

There’s so much wickedness,
I am no longer shock to see
the things that I read about
or what I’m shown on my TV.

Lord, help me not to be,
by this world desensitized
so that to Satan’s lies . . .
I’ll still be able to recognize!

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

every knee shall bow to me,

Without Jesus ~

Without Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus died for you,
and He died for me
He died for the whole world
so our need for Him, we’d see.

He died for the miserable,
the hardened, the hopeless
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are helpless.

He died for the cruel,
the wicked, the guilty
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are filthy.

He died for the sorrowful,
the poor, the meek
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are weak.

He died for the troubled,
the worried, the weary
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are needy.

Jesus died for the lost,
and He died for the unsaved
He died so that we’d see
without Him, we are depraved!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:8
King James Version

“But God commendeth his love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.

Son of Prediction ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Son of prediction,
man of deceit
on the world’s stage
all will bow at his feet.

World arbitrator,
charismatic and alluring
lies all lies
will be so reassuring.

Deluder of the masses,
with signs and wonders
every one under him
marked with his numbers.

Duper of the generation,
brings about world peace
a false sense of hope
but soon it will cease.

Epitome of sin,
the devil incarnate
wicked and evil
every soul his target.

The falling away,
has already begun
the door is now open
for this beast to come!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
King James Version

“Let no man deceive you by any means:
for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away first,
and that man of sin be revealed,
the son of perdition;”


He’s Looking!

The Eyes Of the Lord Searching used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

He gazes from above,
He’s looking to find
who is searching for Him
with all their heart and mind.

He sees not a one,
not one who is seeking
all have turned aside
no one for Him is looking.

He looks to the East,
their souls to Him are idle
He scans to the West
they are, their own idols.

He looks to the South,
no – not even one
He looks to the North
their hearts, He has none.

He looks and He looks,
all across the seas
but love for the Lord
isn’t in the hearts of these!

King James Version

“The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
beholding the evil and the good.”

Free Indeed ~

he-set-the-captives-free CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He sets the captive free,
from the blindness within
releases the binds of guilt
the shamefulness of our sin.

He loosens the chains,
makes love out of hate
unshackles our burdens
eases the heavy weight.

He heals the backslidden,
freedom is now in sight
the yoke of oppression
we no longer have to fight

He scours out the darkness,
in His light, there is power
with grace and mercy
our lives, He empowers.

No longer are we slaves,
to man and his laws
now we come before God
with holy fear and awe.

Oh, what a privilege,
no longer are we bound
free indeed at last . . .
our liberty in Jesus found!

King James Version

“And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.”

Aquitted!

Romans 5 8 by Chris Vasquez free photo #5538
There is no fear of God in man,
their eyes to Him are closed
they only see their selfish pride
so their sins won’t be exposed.

They flatter with their words,
they’re full of vanity and conceit
they sweet-talk one another
believing in their own deceit.

They speak with evil tongues,
plan mischief in their head
they seek to harm each other
and God’s faithful they wish dead.

They place themselves on a path,
leading them straight to hell
but if you were to warn them
they would argue and just yell.

There is no fear of God,
man’s heart is just too wicked
but if they were to turn to Him
from their sins they’d be acquitted!

he setteth himself in a way that is not good;
he abhorreth not evil.”

Temptation’s Tree

Temptation by Aaron Justin free photo # 2588

Oh, the fruit of unrighteousness,
glisten on temptation’s tree
calling out to all the world . . .
“Come and take a look at me.”

Lush, ripe, and ever ready,
it hangs for every eye to see
calling out to all the world . . .
“Come and take a taste of me.”

Always waiting to be picked,
a feast to satisfy is a guarantee
calling out to all the world . . .
“Come and take a bite of me.”

Within its juicy, thriving flesh,
lies its poisonous, evil seed
calling out to all the world . . .
“I am all that you’ll ever need.”

Oh, how man’s unrighteous deeds,
were paid in full, on Calvary’s tree
Jesus calling out to all the world . . .
“I have come to set you free.”

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
of the power of the air,

the spirit that now worketh

What is This Unruly Thing ~

What is this wild thing,
that my mouth has inside
what causes it to lash about
in its smugness and its pride?

How can it sing praises to God,
then chant ~ its curses to man
what is this wild thing . . .
that says whatever it thinks it can?

What causes it to be so untamed,
without a bridle or a rein
what can I do to control this thing
that has its own heart and brain?

Why does it speak such evil,
and at times act out so bad
what is this wild thing . . .
that gets so angry and mad?

Who can restrain this unruly thing,
that is filled with poison and fire
who can tame this beastly thing
that’s filled with worldly desire?

What is this unruly thing,
that my mouth has inside
what causes it to lash about . .  .
other than my own selfish pride!

James 3:8
King James Version

“But the tongue
can no man tame;
it is an
unruly evil,
full of deadly poison.”

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
