Tag Archives: Spiritual Blindness

The god Of This World ~

The god of this world,
blinds and darkens
the souls in this world
who to his lies hearkens.

He causes deaf ears,
hearts to be cold
he tells them the Bible
is a falsehood to behold.

He and his army,
are at war for God’s light
and to the bitter end
for it they will fight.

So they wager a battle,
with all that they can
by telling them Jesus . . .
was just a mere man.

The god of this world,
impairs the sight
of the souls in this world
so they cant see God’s light!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:4

” In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the light
of the glorious gospel of Christ,
who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.”

Vanity, Oh Vanity ~

Vanity, oh vanity
what gain is there in
the charm of your lure
only covers our sin.

On lofty pedestal,
is where you put us
so that in ourselves
not in God we’ll trust.

You tease and play,
with our heart and mind
vanity, oh vanity
your pride makes us blind.

You lift us up high,
proud chin and all
so we can’t look down
on the cause of our fall.

Ego, oh ego,
vanities conceited kin
in you there is no good . . .
beyond your wicked grin!

~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 1:2

“Vanity of vanities,
saith the Preacher,
vanity of vanities;
all is vanity.”

Sticky Note From God 08.18.17


Perhaps ~

Sometimes I look,
but I don’t always see
the plans God has
awaiting just for me.

Perhaps I’m too busy,
focusing on my pain
or maybe it’s in my life
there’s been so much rain.

Sometimes I find myself,
wrap up in just me
that God purposes
are just too hard to see.

Perhaps I’m spending,
too much time away
from the Word of God
to see what He’s to say.

Sometimes to be honest,
I worry way too much
and I remain blind  . . .
to Jesus’ healing touch!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 9:27-29

“And when Jesus departed thence,
two blind men followed him,
crying, and saying,
Thou son of David, have mercy on us.

And when he was come
into the house, the blind men
came to him: and Jesus saith
unto them, Believe ye that I am
able to do this?
They said unto him, Yea, Lord.

Then touched he their eyes, saying,
According to your faith be it unto you.”

Holding the Line

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)
