Abiding In These Last Times ~

Abiding in these last times,
takes walking in the Light
so to be able to see . . .
all the evil forces we fight.

For walking in the Light,
will keep us very aware
to the many trappings
satan has in his snare.

Abiding in the Truth,
takes remaining focused
being alert to doctrines
counterfeit and bogus.

For daily staying focused,
antichrists we’ll expose
and to their false gospel
we’ll be able to oppose.

Abiding in these last times,
takes the Light to find . . .
all the deceivers out to get
our hearts and minds!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:18-28

Little children, it is the last time:
and as ye have heard that antichrist
shall come, even now are there
many antichrists; whereby we
know that it is the last time.

Who Is Hindering Your Faith ~

Who is hindering your faith,
who is standing in the way
what is holding you back
why are you running away?

Who is causing you to doubt,
who is robbing you of peace
what has a grip on you
why can’t from it you release?

Who is messing with your trust,
who is making you confused
what has you in a turmoil
why is your mind consumed?

Who is keeping you in fear,
who is behind your dread
what is playing with your beliefs
why is it messing up your head?

Satan is that who,
he’s that what and one . . .
but, if you submit and resist him
from you he will flee and run!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:7

Ye did run well;
who did hinder you
that ye should not
obey the truth?

James 4:7

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

Guarding Your Heart ~

Guarding your heart,
is a daily must . . .
and the Holy Spirit
you’ll need to trust.

For He’ll alert you to,
satan’s earthly snares
so to his tipsy bait
you will be aware.

Preparing your heart,
is a daily thing . . .
for you never know
the cares it’ll bring.

For a heart ready,
is a warrior sober
and to satan’s lures
it will not trip over.

Guarding your heart,
is a daily to do . . .
for it may be the day
Jesus comes for you!

~~~~~~~

Luke 21:34

And take heed to yourselves,
lest at any time your hearts
be overcharged with surfeiting,
and drunkenness, and cares of
this life, and so that day
come upon you unawares.

Satan Is Like A Spider ~

Satan is like a spider,
who spins a web silken
in hopes of capturing
any of God’s children.

He stealthily awaits,
for his poor clueless prey
so into his sticky trap
he can cunningly sway.

His legs are like soldiers,
they are deft and skillful
at keeping you enmeshed
in doing what is sinful.

So subtle and clever he is,
you won’t see the snare
until he has you trapped
once inside of there.

Satan is like a spider,
who spins a web of lies
he doesn’t care just who . . .
in his web of evil dies!

~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 3:13

And the Lord God
said unto the woman,
What is this that thou hast done?
And the woman said,
The serpent beguiled me,
and I did eat.
 

John 8:44

Ye are of your father the devil,
and the lusts of your father
ye will do. He was a murderer
from the beginning, and abode
not in the truth, because
there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie,
he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar,
and the father of it.

In God’s Control ~

Lord, keep my mind,
keep it secured
into satan’s traps
let it not be lured.

Lord, keep my thoughts,
keep them on You
don’ let them be jaded
by the world’s view.

Lord, keep my heart,
keep it far away
to false teachings
do not let it sway.

Lord, keep my soul,
keep it close to You
let it keep heaven
always in its view.

Lord, keep my mind,
thoughts, heart, soul
keep them always . . .
in Your divine control!

~~~~~~~

Romans 8:5-6

“For they that are after the flesh
do mind the things of the flesh;
but they that are after the
Spirit the things of the Spirit.

For to be carnally minded is death;
but to be spiritually minded
is life and peace.”

When Satan Comes Roaring ~

When satan whispers,
calmly in your ear
God’s has left you
see, He’s not here.

Don’t you indulge,
in this wily deceit
for God promised
to be your retreat.

When satan wails,
loudly in your ear
See, all your prayers
God does not hear.

Don’t you believe,
in this cunning lie
for God listens to
your every cry.

When satan comes roaring,
to devour and deceive
growl right back at him . . .
just in Whom you believe!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:4

“Ye are of God, little children,
and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you,
than he that is in the world.

Escaping Satan’s Traps ~

The only way,
satan to escape
is to not get caught
in his sticky tape.

For, he will lure you,
with his tacky lies
so into his snare
you’ll land just like flies.

Once you are caught,
in his gummy muck
you will find from him
it’s hard to get unstuck.

For, he won’t let go,
of his hold on you
for his grip hardens
just like quick drying glue.

The only way,
satan to escape . . .
is in your Bible
to stay in shape!

Ephesians 6:11

“Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.”

Jesus To The Rescue ~

Lord, today I’m feeling,
a little off course
like a ship without . . .
a navigation source.

I feel like I’m drifting,
in a sea of doubt
and I need Your guidance
to find my way out.

Things are a little foggy,
my head is feeling light
and these waves of fear
I’ll need Your help to fight.

I feel I’ll soon get caught,
like a fish on a hook
for satan’s traps and snares
are everywhere I look.

Lord, today I’m feeling,
like a ship lost at sea
so I’m counting on You . . .
to come and rescue me!

“Then they cry unto the Lord
in their trouble, and he
bringeth them out
of their distresses.”

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.”
