It’s God’s Rainbow ~

It's God's Rainbow ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ phot Creation Swap

The rainbow isn’t a banner,
of one’s lust and pride
nor a place where from God
sin can go to hide.

It doesn’t represent,
freedom to make choices
nor should it be used as a flag
to shut out opposing voices.

It isn’t about liberty,
in a diverse generation
nor a pledge to sue those
who hold a Christian foundation.

The rainbow belongs to God,
it is His promise to the world
that on this earth never again
will He let a flood be unfurled.

It will surround His throne,
during the great tribulation
for those who call on Jesus . . .
for mercy and salvation!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 4:3

“And he that sat was to look upon
like a jasper and a sardine stone:
and there was a rainbow
round about the throne,

in sight like unto an emerald.”

Keep Searching Me Lord ~

Search me Oh Lord used with permission DoorPost Verses

Keep searching me Lord,
keep probing my heart
take my anxious thoughts
before they even start.

Keep leading me Lord,
whether it be night or day
direct me in Your light
onto the everlasting way.

Keep exploring me Lord,
keep looking deep within
bring me to repentance
over every hidden sin.

Keep guiding me Lord,
keep me on the right path
let me not fall onto the one
that brings eternal wrath.

Keep evaluating me Lord,
keep discovering in me
any pride, greed  or lust
in which, You still can see.

Keep searching me Lord,
put me under the spotlight
till all of the wickedness
in me, You highlight!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 139:23-24

“Search me, O God, and know my heart:
try me, and know my thoughts:

And see if there be any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.”

Breath of Life ~

God Breathed ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ IBible Verses

I just want to breathe in,
nothing but fresh air . . .
pure, life-giving, clean
but, finding it is rare.

Instead, all I do is gasp,
at the smut, filth and muck
choking back the grime
in a world that’s gone amok.

At times, I take in a deep breath,
but find myself wheezing
so many things in the atmosphere
that to God,  are not pleasing.

The pollution man’s created,
makes it impossible to inhale
for lust, greed, and immorality
I constantly have to expel.

I just want to breathe in,
nothing but God’s fresh clean air
pure, life-giving, unpolluted
but, there’s so little left ~ out there!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 2:7
King James Version

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;
and man became a living soul.”

Examine Me, Lord ~

keep-thyself-pure CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Examine me dear Lord,
see through my disguise
tear away the mask
expose the lust in my eyes.

Examine me dear Lord,
test my mind and my heart
point out the inner flaws
keeping us apart.

Examine me dear Lord,
pull back the veil on my sin
show me where my pride
is still rooted in.

Examine me dear Lord,
bare my soul’s weakness
uncover my selfish acts
all that is needless.

Examine me dear Lord,
tear away the disguise
till all I can see . . .
is Your image in my eyes!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 26:2
King James Version

“Examine me, O Lord, and prove me;
try my reins and my heart.”

I Choose Jesus ~

ichoosejesus-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The world may choose,
to believe what it may
but I choose Jesus . . .
the Truth, Life and Way.

The world may pick,
one God over another
but I choose Jesus . . .
over any other.

The world may offer,
instant gratification
but I choose Jesus . . .
for eternal satisfaction.

The world may decide,
in God they don’t believe
but I choose Jesus . . .
and not to be deceived.

The world may opt for,
the desires of the flesh
but I choose Jesus . . .
to keep my soul afresh.

The world may elect,
a man to be their God
but I choose Jesus . . .
to spare me from His rod.

The world may want,
to pursue after lust
but I choose Jesus . . .
in whom I put my trust.

The world may choose,
another God over Thee
but I choose You ~ Jesus
because You first chose me!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:16
King James Version

“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.”

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 15:16
King James Version

“Ye have not chosen me,

No ~ Not Even One!

10 Comandments used with permission Creation Swap

Her heart was filled with lust,
her spirit was broken down
she was sought by the men
who lived all through her town.

She lived her life in darkness,
she knew she would be stoned
yet, she carried on in her sin
till her secret was made known.

They caught her red-handed,
right in the sinful act
and they brought her to Jesus
with all the details of the fact.

They asked Him to judge her,
to indict her for her sin
they even called Him their Master
in hopes a ruling they would win.

He knew she was an adulterous,
told the blood thirsty crowd so
then He said, “You without sin”
go ahead and cast the first throw.

They caught her in her sin,
they saw the crime she had done
but they could not condemn her
no ~ not even one!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 8: 7
King James Bible

“So when they continued asking Him, He
raised Himself up and said to them, “He
who is without sin among you, let him
throw a stone at her first.”

Sinners Wanted ~

Sinners wanted . . .
inquire within
looking for those
willing to die to sin.

Experience needed,
in both greed and pride
looking for those
eager to be My bride.

Seeking those skillful,
in lying, murder, and stealing
looking for those
who need a heart and soul healing.

Knowledge appreciated,
in selfishness and conceit
looking for those
who need a Savior to meet.

Practice in immorality,
is not the only must
looking for those who want
to conquer every lust.

If you are interested,
come right on in . . .
I have been wondering
where you have been!

 . . . Love Jesus

~~~~~~

Matthew 9:13
King James Version

“But go and learn
what this means: ‘I desire

mercy and not sacrifice.’
For I did not come to

call the righteous,
but sinners,to repentance.”

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;”

Saved By That Connection!

Cross Pathway by Kevin Carden free photo #19122
Once I walked the course,
that paved my way with sin
my steps were bound to take me
where Satan was sure to win.

I followed my own desires,
and lusted after even more
I strolled the streets of greed
and knocked on resentment’s door.

I pursued the work of darkness,
and ate up all the fame
I labored in the halls of envy
with covetous as my aim.

I ensued after my own pleasure,
with Satan beneath my feet
my gratification kept me marching
to his disobedient beat.

I became skillful in the world,
and paved a road for my delight
until I came upon a bridge
that exposed a saving light.

In the span of my awareness,
I saw just how ugly I became
and it was at this very moment
I felt the sting of my own shame.

Oh, how grateful now I am,
to be saved by that connection.
now my path is paved and planed
with God’s design and intention.

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

Galatians 5:17
King James Version 

“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit,
and the Spirit against the flesh:
and these are contrary the one to the other:
so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”

What’s Driving Your Chariot?

Running on Empty by Jonathan Fox free photo #2429

Some people are driven by greed,
by their lust after worldly things
some are driven by their faith
and the hope that Jesus brings.

Some people are driven by success,
by their jobs and the money they earn
some are driven by the Word of God
and what in their Bible they learn.

Some people are driven by the riches,
that living in this world offers up
some are driven by the mercy of God
and the grace He holds in His cup.

Some people are driven by their homes,
their cars, their boats, their toys
some are driven by the peace of God
and the thought of eternal joy.

Some people drive their own chariot,
and put their trust in worldly things
some people trust in Jesus
and are driven by the love He brings.

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

Psalm 20:7
King James Version

“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses:
but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.”

Eyes Wide Open ~

Open My eyes by Elideth Ceniceros free photo 10896

Lord, open my eyes,
so that I might see
the envy and pride
still living in me.

Let me look upon,
the lust in my heart
help me to understand
what keeps us apart.

Make my soul ready,
for what You reveal
let me be appalled
so I may be healed.

Let me not turn away,
from the horrific sight
instead fill my vision
with Your wondrous light.

Lord, make my view clear
as You open my eyes
so to Your ways
I may be wise!

~~~~~~

Psalm 119:18
King James Version

“Open thou mine eyes,
that I may behold wondrous
things out of thy law.”

If I Were Eve . . .

The first page of the Book of Genesis from the...

Sometime I think if I were Eve,
I would’ve done something different
other than to be led astray . . .
by that slimy, slithering, lying serpent.

I would’ve given it more thought,
about having all that knowledge
since what I know about the world
I’m not too proud to acknowledge.

I would’ve given it more reflection,
a garden that was abundantly lush
or this one that is filled with smut
crawling in greed, pride and lust.

You see I really don’t like apples,
or fruit of any kind . . .
and I don’t think I would have let
Satan slither his way into my mind.

But, then I  do love vegetables,
chicken, pork and beef . . .
and who knows if I was offered them
if I would have given satan any grief.

I guess the moral of my dilemma,
is satin knows just how to tempt you
be it a fruit on a tree . . .
or a juicy burger on the barbecue.

So be very careful,
this slimy, slithering, lying snake
will offer you anything . . .
so from Jesus  your soul ~ he can take!

Genesis 3:2
King James Version

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