TAKE IT TO JESUS

When you have worry, that “blows your mind,”
Jesus is there, and He’s loving and kind!
Don’t let that worry, take hold of you,
Take it to Jesus, He’ll see you thru’!

When you have pain, that won’t go away,
Jesus is there for you, night or day!
His grace is sufficient, this you will see,
Take it to Jesus, He will hear your plea!

When you have sorrow, that fills your heart,
Jesus is there, for He will ne’er depart!
Don’t let that sorrow, burden your soul,
Take it to Jesus, let Him have control!

When you feel downtrodden, and so low,
Jesus is there, and He loves you so!
Don’t let those troubled times, keep you blue,
Take it to Jesus, He cares for you!

When you feel you’re in a topsy-turvey world,
Jesus is there, and His strength is unfurl’d!
Your ev’ry problem, be it large or small,
Take it to Jesus, He waits for your call!

TAKE IT TO JESUS

Take it to Jesus, when things go wrong,
His awesome pow’r will make you strong.
When trials or troubles come your way,
Trusting the Lord, makes a better day.

Take it to Jesus, when you feel fear,
Let Him let you know, that He is near.
His tremendous Presence, you will feel,
Your fear is replaced, by peace so real.

Take it to Jesus, when friends forsake,
As His true friendship, you partake.
No better friend, will you ever find,
Jesus is true, loving and e’er so kind.

Take it to Jesus, when pain comes your way,
He can help make it a better day.
Thru’ it all, He will stand by your side,
For His calming Presence, does abide.

Take it to Jesus, when you have doubt,
He alone, can help you cast it out.
Your faith can increase, just simply ask,
As in His fellowship, you do bask.

Take it to Jesus, when temptations rise,
This you will do, if you are truly wise.
Satan will try you, where you are weak,
The pow’r of Christ Jesus, you must seek.

Take it to Jesus, when joy o’er flows,
When wondrous blessings on you He bestows.
Thank Him, that He stands firmly with you,
Praise Him, for being a Friend so true!

TAKE IT TO JESUS

Do you have a burden, heavy on you?
There’s Someone who will help, carry you through.
Take it to Jesus, He really does care,
That dreadful burden, He will help you bear.

Do you have troubles, that won’t go away?
There’s a Friend who can help, this very day.
Take it to Jesus, there’s no better Friend,
Your troubles will decrease, with love He sends.

Do you suffer, with exhausting pain?
There can be great comfort, you can attain.
Take it to Jesus, and tell Him your need,
He’ll walk with you, as on His strength you feed.

Do you feel down, with great worry and stress?
Jesus can lift you up, and truly bless.
Take it to Jesus, He’ll remove your anxiety,
Peace takes control, so you live joyously.

Does your faith at times, dip ever so low?
It’s then to Someone special, you should go.
Take it to Jesus, your faith He can increase,
Just trust Him to give you, glorious peace.

Take it to Jesus, for a better day,
He will come thru’ for you, in ev’ry way.
When you trust His wisdom, guidance and pow’r,
He will be there for you, at any hour.

TAKE UP YOUR CROSS

Jesus told the rich man, words to him dure,
“Go sell what you have and give to the poor.”
The man was grieved; for much things he had,
He would not put Jesus first, so, so sad!

To ‘Take up your cross’ , is yourself to deny,
Always put Christ FIRST, your wants, crucify!
If you can’t place Him FIRST in all you do,
You’re just not worthy of His love so true.

If you love things of the world, more than He,
Placing possessions first; Jesus will flee!
If you place any person before Him,
Eternal life for you is surely dim.

‘Take up your cross’; deny yourself today,
He’ll help bear your burden as you walk the way.
What shall a man gain if he lose his soul?
Always put Jesus FIRST, He’s in control.

For the knowledge of Christ, I count all things loss,
I trying my best to ‘Take up my cross’.
I count it all joy that He calls me “friend”,
Heaven awaits, when this life on Earth ends.

(Mk.10:21; Mt.6:19-21; 10:38: 16:24-27; Jn.15:14; Phil.3:8)

TALKING TO JESUS!

There was an awesome joy, that I never knew,
‘Til the day I open’d, my heart to You.
You made a diff’rence, in my lonely soul,
Since then, loving You, has been my goal!

Your caring smile, one day I will see,
In my new Home, of bliss and beauty.
I’ll reach out and hold, Your nail-scarr’d Hand,
As I walk with You, on that Golden Strand.

One day my hope and dream, will come true,
For I will spend, eternity with You,
Your soft, comforting Voice, I’ll hear,
For Lord and Master, You will be so near!

TEACH ME, LORD

Lord, I lift up my soul unto Thee,
Let Your light shine brightly over me.
Lord, I trust You, now and for always,
Guide me on right paths, teach me Thy ways.

Let me never be ashamed of You,
In anything that I say or do.
Teach me Lord, and unto Thy Truth lead,
Let me serve You, as Your Word I heed.

Remember not my sins when I was young,
Nor the sins of my uncontrolled tongue.
For Thy goodness sake, have mercy on me,
Teach me, that I might not sin against Thee.

Good and upright are You, in all Your ways,
The meek You will guide and teach each day.
All of Your paths are Truth and mercy,
A humble request Lord; teach me, teach me.

Lord, pardon my sin, for it is vast,
Let my disobedience be in the past.
Let my soul within me, dwell at ease,
Teach me Lord, for it’s You I want to please.

The secret to You Lord, You we should fear,
Then Your love and mercy, will always be near.
Lord, let my eyes be ever toward You,
Teach me Lord, so I’ll always be true.

Psalm 25

TEARS

Christ washed my eyes with tears, and I did see,
And He gave a soft and tender heart to me.
Christ washed away the things, that made me blind,
‘Twas then I saw that all clouds, were silver-lined!

Christ made me realize what was best for me,
I was glad from worldly things, I was free.
No more chains wound tightly around my soul,
Evil thoughts were gone; Jesus took control!

Jesus makes my eyes often, wet with tears,
Love and mercy are no longer in arear.
A caring heart, my Saviour gave to me,
Lord I pray, that I will always, this way be!

Tears have a great many reasons to flow,
Pain, heartache, adversity and sorrow.
Too, tears can come from joy and happiness,
Tears can be a way, that God does bless.

The joy found within us, is fed by tears,
Ev’n in deepest sorrow, and crazy fears.
For Christ washed my eyes, that I may see,
All the right roads, where He is leading me!

TEARS

Tears come to many folks, normally,
Caused from pain, sorrow and agony.
Loneliness also can bring tears,
Tears too can come from worry or fear.

Tears too can come from a tender heart,
Where from a cold, hard heart, tears won’t depart!
Tears too can come from one who does love,
One with compassion, like God above.

Tears reveal the true person inside,
Yet many their real feelings, try to hide.
If Christ Jesus humbly brought forth tears,
We too should forget, our pride and fears.

Tears are a sign of goodness and love,
And a soft, grateful heart, from God above.
Tears show you are concerned and care,
Tears will never hinder or impair.

In a bottle, God has collected our tears,
He keeps track of our sorrows and fears.
In His book ev’ry one He records,
One day we’ll receive a fitting reward.

TELL IT TO JESUS!

Tell it to Jesus, when you feel sad,
When you talk to Him, your heart is glad!
Sadness will leave, joy will take its place,
All because of His wonderful grace!

Tell it to Jesus, when troubles abound,
His wondrous love is simply profound!
Trials and tribulations, plague us all,
But they seem minor, when on Him you call!

Tell it to Jesus, when worry sets in,
Worry leads to doubt; and that is sin!
He has promised to supply our needs,
When you talk to Him, He will take heed!

Tell it to Jesus, when you’re lonely,
Your burden He will gladly help carry!
Loss of a loved one, who did depart,
Can be eased by comfort He’ll impart!

Tell it to Jesus, if you have grief,
Trusting in Him grants such great relief!
He’ll never leave you; never forsake,
Nor guide you into a bad mistake!

Tell it to Jesus, when things go right,
Praise and thank Him always, day and night!
An awesome Saviour, whom we adore,
Will grant eternal life, on Heav’n’s shore!

Tell it to Jesus, pray without ceasing,
Only He, can eternal blessings bring!
Tell it to Jesus, our Saviour and Friend,
For friendship with Him will have no end!

TELL OF HELL

Most cults today deny Hell does exist,
Can’t they see? why do they God’s Word resist?
Avoiding the subject, won’t make them right,
God’s judgment will be the tale of their plight.

Anyone who’s called to bring God’s Word,
Must bring it all, and not any discard.
If we teach ‘bout Heaven, we must teach Hell,
For God does not want any, there to dwell!

We must issue clear warning, or we sin,
We must try very hard, lost souls to win!
Hell needs to be uncovered by God’s man,
Then maybe, from Hell, some will be banned!

Tell of our Jesus, and what He has done,
Do your utmost best, for souls to be won.
Tell of Heav’n’s beauty, and Hell’s agony,
And that only Christ, can set lost souls free.

THANK HIM FOR EVERYTHING . . . Nov.1997 Message

Thank Him for the sunshine, and for the rain,
The beautiful birds and their sweet refrain.
Thank Him for the morning, dewey and bright,
And for the sunset, that comes before night.

Thank Him for all your loved ones so dear,
And abundant blessings, year after year.
Thank Him each morn’ as you rise from your bed,
With Him on your side, you’ve nothing to dread!

Thank Him for your home, and the food you eat,
The clothes you wear, and the shoes on your feet.
Thank Him for friends He has given to you,
They are special blessings we can’t construe.

Thank Him for the trials that come your way,
Though at times they seem our nerves to fray.
But in the end, they will benefit you,
Making you stronger to see you through.

Thank Him for our family in the Lord,
Always love them, and be in one accord.
Thank Him each time you come in the church door,
Remember you came to praise and adore.

Thank Him for Jesus, our Saviour and Lord,
And for the Gospel that comes by His Word.
No one can come to the Father but by Him,
We must tell others, or their chance is dim.

We thank you Jesus, for your wondrous love,
Sent to us sinners, from the Father above.
We thank you for life in Heaven beyond,
Where we’ll live with you, since you we have found.

Thank You precious Lord, for little things,
I should thank You for the smallest blessing!

Thank You for little things You do for me,
Such as an unexpected courtesy.

Nicities of life, that come my way!

For little things You do, I thank You,
Like fellowship with a friend so true.
A thoughtful deed done in lovingkindness,

THAT BETHLEHEM BABE . . . Dec.2000 Message

‘Tis hard to comprehend, how that Baby,
Could possibly in the God-head be!

Our God descended as a humble Man,
‘Twas God, the Father’s well thought out Plan.
His bed was not adorn’d with silver nor gold,
But a wooden manger, in a barn so cold!

The Christ Child who came, is Master of all,
Those in palaces great, or huts so small.
Many angels welcomed Him, as they sang,
As their booming voices, in the night rang.

The Child, by the hosts of Heav’n was ador’d,
Christ Jesus, is the everlasting Lord!
The God-head was veil’d in flesh, perfectly,
The Babe was the Incarnate Deity!

The Heav’n born Prince of Peace, came that night,
To “whosoever,” He brings life and light!
He was born that we may die no more,
And gives us grand blessings He holds in store.

He was born to give us a second birth,
Came to save the souls of all those on Earth.
On that wondrous, holy night, long ago,
The Christ Child came, salvation to bestow.

This humble Man, was born for you and me,
To give us a GIFT: life eternally,
God’s Promise fulfill’d, the Messiah came,
That Bethlehem Babe; Jesus is His Name!

THAT FATEFUL DAY

Did you ever consider that fateful day?
When God will take you from this Earth, far away?
Just where will He send you? just where will you go?
To be with Him in Heav’n? or to Hell below?

Our body returns to the dust of the land,
But what about the spirit, God gave to man?
It lives forever, not destroyed, nor asleep,
Either in Heav’n above, or in Hell, He’ll keep.

Did you ever consider that fateful day?
We have no power, the day of death to sway.
‘Tis appointed by God to men, once to die,
No mortal can change that, as hard as they try.

The death of God’s children, is precious to Him,
The spirit goes back to God, bright day, or night dim.
But, if you have rejected Jesus, God’s Son,
Your shame, contempt, and troubles, have just begun.

If you don’t know Jesus as Saviour today,
Change your destination of that fateful day.
He’s waiting at your heart’s door, wanting inside,
Open, accept Him, and in Heav’n, you’ll abide.

THAT OLD MAN IS DEAD

Evil, immoral ways wrack’d my life,
I had discontent, worry and strife.
Doing wickedness; I had no dread,
But praise You Lord, that old man is dead!

Gossip, cursing, backbiting and lies,
Jesus, I rejected and denied.
On Satan’s temptations I was fed,
Thank You Jesus, that old man is dead!

Worldly pleasures, I desp’ratly sought,
On my mind were evil, impure thoughts.
Sins were rampant; by Satan I was led,
Praise the Lord God, that old man is dead!

I’m so grateful, that old man is dead,
Jesus gave me a new one instead!
I’m a new creature; all things are new,
Thank You Jesus, I’m one of the “few”.

He gave me a new spirit and heart,
That old, hard, evil one did depart.
My spirit’s hunger and thirst were fed,
Praise Christ Jesus, that old man is dead!

And God also gave Him full control!

Trusting in Jesus, brings life eternally,
Just He can remove our iniquity.
Just He can bring you to Heav’n’s blissful shore,
Christ is the beginning of this, and more!

Christ is the beginning of joy and peace,
Your stress and your worries, He can release!
The peace He gives is a wondrous thing,

Christ is the beginning of wondrous rest,
Tho’ at times He will put us to the test!
He allows troubles to come, our faith to try,
Those who endure, have wondrous rest on high!

In this life on Earth, He will always be near,

Trusting in Christ, is just the beginning,
One day we will reign with the Mighty King!

THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE

Some folk slave for riches of this Earth,
Then with pride, show off all they’re worth.
They have pow’r and wealth; but are not happy,
For all the best things in life are free!

Contentment can’t be bought; nor can love,
Peace and joy; these come just from above!
And nearly all strive for happiness,
But instead, many have great sadness.

Can money buy a true loving spouse?
Or a happy home; not a lonely house?
Can your money buy excellent health?
The best things in life, don’t come from wealth!

A true friend will stand by you always,
Won’t leave nor forsake, on your worst days.
The true love Christ shows, is always free,
With grace and mercy, for you and me!

There is a saying, and I agree,
“All the best things in this life are free.”
The wondrous blessings our God does give,
Makes this world a better place as we live.

THE BIBLE

When I get weary, the Bible is my Bed,
When I hunger, it is my daily Bread.
When it is dark, the Bible is my Light,
When I fear, it is Armor for my fright.

When I am lost, the Bible is my Guide,
When I’m hemm’d in, it opens doors so wide!
When I feel naked, it clothes me rich and warm,
When I’m tempest toss’d, ‘tis a refuge from the storm!

The Bible is a Sun, when gloom does depress,
Changing a dreary day, to one of brightness!
When I feel I’m sinking, in deadly quicksand,
The Bible reaches out, and grabs my weary hand!

When I feel as if, nothing at all I know,
Knowledge and wisdom, from the Bible flow!
When I feel lonely, great friends I find therein,
When I’m ill, the Bible, is my best Medicine!

Struggling in life, the Bible gives me wings,
Consolation and pow’r, it truly brings!
When the world around, seems ugly and bare,
The Bible is a Garden, of beauty so fair!

The Bible gives comfort, by showing God’s love,
And great joy of knowing, there’s Heav’n above!
There’s a “mansion” for me, waiting up there,
And a wondrous Saviour, who truly cares!

God will forgive us, the Bible does tell,
And we can for eternity, in Heav’n dwell!
But we must trust Christ, who is so perfect,
And Him as Saviour and Lord, we must accept!

The Bible Does Not Exaggerate

The Bible, only the Truth does tell,
It speaks of Heav’n, but also of Hell.
Heav’n is a place, of bliss and glory,
While Hell is a place, of agony.

The Bible clearly states, right from wrong,
It tells us to avoid, Satan’s throng.
The eternal God, wants us to know,
To His Home on High, He wants us to go.

Many Promises to us, God makes,
Such as, “I’ll ne’er leave you, nor forsake.”
All God’s Promises, are ours to claim,
Let us claim them, in Christ Jesus’ Name.

When troubles arise, where do you look?
Have you e’er thought of, God’s Holy Book?
All correct answers, can come your way,
If you are wise, you’ll do it today,

The Bible does not, exaggerate,
On the worth of Jesus, O’ so great.
It speaks of His awesome love, so true,
And what He endured, for me and you.

Have you e’er consider’d, what He has done?
This Man, God’s only begotten Son.
He paid a sin debt, He did not owe,
So we’d not have to go, to Hell below.

Exaggeration, God’s Word does not do,
All its pages, are completely true.
What it states about Christ, you must believe.
Or the glory of Heav’n, you’ll not achieve.

The Birth of Jesus . . . Dec.1996 Message

When Jesus came, all those many years ago,
Born of a virgin, as the prophets did show,
In a humble manger, used as a bed,
‘Twas no room at the inn, so a barn instead.

Just what does His Birth mean, to you and me?
He came down from Heaven. to set us all free.
It only began, with His marvelous Birth,
He died on the cross, for us, here on Earth.

When we think of His Birth, it gives great joy,
He came as our Victor, and sin to destroy.
He brings gladness and happiness, to our hearts,
Just knowing He’s near, and will never depart.

The world can never have, the peace that He brings,
This feeling deep down, makes us happy we live.
We need not be troubled, nor have any fear,
For He came to Earth, to always be near.

His Birth also gives us, that eternal hope,
Power to keep going, when Satan does grope.
He brings salvation, to all who will believe,
Eternity in Heaven, we will achieve.

Do you have room for Jesus? or shut Him out?
Do you want to go to Heaven? He’s the only Route.
He was born in that manger, to save our soul,
Just turn to Jesus, and Heav’n shall be your goal.

That ‘Book’ in God’s Home; is your name there?
If not, you’ll not set foot, on Heav’n’s stair!
You can’t get to Heaven, on your own,
For all are sinners, Christ’s Blood must atone.

The Blood of Jesus, so precious and dear,
It can cover all your sin; list’ and hear!

In tiny Bethlehem, would be born our Lord,
This unique Baby who would be adored.

One day He’ll bring peace on Earth, everywhere.

He was the promised seed of Abraham,
The only begotten Son, of the “I AM.”
From the tribe of Judah, He would descend,
This Awesome One, who would become, man’s best Friend.

Born in a barn, a manger for His bed,
As His virgin mother, stroked His sweet head.
Shepherds were watching their flocks that night,
When God’s glory, shone round them with great light.

A multitude of angels came suddenly,
Praising our Lord God of the heavenlies.
Highest glory to God, and peace on Earth,
Praising God and honoring Jesus’ birth.

What wondrous love God on us does bestow,
Such amazing grace to us He does show.
Christ came to Earth to die, for you and me,
So we all could have life, eternally.

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ that carried that heavy load?
Weary, stagg’ring; with head bowed low,
A Man acquainted with grief and sorrow.

Paid our debt, and set our sinful soul free.

THE CHRISTIAN’S CALLS

The ‘call’ to salvation is so clear,
God’s Holy Spirit is always near.
He convicts the hearts of ev’ry one,
But only a few turn to God’s Son!

The ‘call’ to consecration is there,
Put Christ first; for Him you must truly care.
Above all treasures, and all you love,
If you don’t, you’re not fit, for above.

The ‘call’ to separation is plain,
In evil and sin, you can’t remain!
You must withdraw from all wickedness,
Or you’ll displease God, and He’ll not bless!

The ‘call’ to self-denial is real,
Say “No” to your wants, as to Him you kneel.
Take up your cross, and follow the Lord,
All else is loss, ‘cept Him and His Word!

The ‘call’ to service is evident,
If we belong to Christ; we are sent.
Imitate Him; we must trust and obey,
And in Heaven we’ll live, some sweet day!

When our time runs out, and our clock does quit,
What will happen to your soul, your spirit?
It does not die, as Satan’s children say,
The soul lives forever; it lives alway!

There are two destinations; Heav’n and Hell,
You are destined for one; where you’ll dwell.
Heav’n is only for those who trust God’s Son,
Hell is for the millions, who reject in fun.

The clock keeps ticking, time just rushes by,
You must make preparations, ‘fore you die!
Once your body dies; it will be too late,

My soul does not cease, of the constant need,
To honor and praise You, and give You heed.
I feel as Isaiah, no words can provide,
How my heart feels, as in You I abide.

Like a watered garden, to us You tend,
On Your goodness, we can always depend.
Like a spring of water, You don’t deny,
Your Fountain of kindness, will not run dry,

So many things You do, run thru’ my mind,
Blessings You bestow, because You are kind.
Abundant blessings, You bestow each day,
Leading and guiding, each step of the way.

 I thank You, for Your watch care over me,
Day or night, You watch continually.
I thank You for the angels, who stand guard, 
Who keep away all danger, from me barred.

I thank You, for eternal salvation,
Giv’n to me, by Your dearly beloved Son.
Redeemed, from the eternal lake of fire,
Promised Heav’n instead, that I would acquire.

Your lovingkindness, and amazing grace,
Make me know one day, I’ll meet You Face to face.
So I’ll keep off’ring, the sacrifice of praise,
My heart-felt gratitude, to You I’ll raise.

So many reasons, for the constant need,
That gratitude and honor, from me must proceed.
I must praise and thank, the dear LORD above,
For all the goodness, that comes from His love.

THE CORNERSTONE

Of the true church; Christ is the ‘Cornerstone’,
Only He for all our sins did atone.
Yet many refuse to build on this ‘Stone’,
They follow Satan, and Christ is not known.

God chose one ‘Cornerstone’; His one Son,
A sure foundation, for every one.
The ‘Head of the Corner’ is Christ our Lord,
Reject Him, and by God you’ll be scorned!

We must build on Christ, the ‘Chief Cornerstone’,
All else will fail, except Christ alone!
If you build on sand, it will wash away,
Don’t let Satan mislead with his deray.

Building on sand, is man’s works and deeds,
My friend, our God will never take heed!
If you reject the ‘Stone’, Christ, the Lord,
God will reject you, and to Hell discard.

This ‘Stone’ is precious, elect, and true,
He wants us to build on Him, me and you.
All who believe on Him are Heav’n bound,
And their name in the ‘Book’ shall be found!

If we fall on this ‘Stone’, and build on such,
Our works shall stand, our reward is much.
But he that builds on stubble, wood, or hay,
His works shall be burned, on ‘Judgment Day’.

THE ‘CROSS’ IS A REMINDER

The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my heart,
That from His love, I should not depart.
His love is so very precious to me,
He removed sin’s stain, gave victory!

The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my soul,
That He is always in full control.
He so died, that I might go to Heaven,
Out of love; what a GIFT He has given!

The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my mind,
That such love as His, you simply can’t find!
He died on that ‘Cross’ in sheer agony,
To save us from Hell; from God’s wrath, we’re free!

For all things He brings; whether bright or dim.
There’s a silver lining in all clouds He sends,
All our hurts and deep heartaches, He mends.

The ‘Cross’ reminds me of joy and peace,
These blessings from God give great release.
The comfort and warmth these things surely give,
Make me so happy that my Saviour lives!

The ‘Cross’ reminds me of ne’er failing love,
Pure, everlasting love; from God above!
Love so marvelous, He gave us His Son,
If you accept Him; salvation is won!

THE CROSS OF CHRIST

The Cross of Christ looms, ‘tween God and you,

Christ wants to be your Saviour and Friend,
But to most today, His Cross offends.

If you don’t believe this very day,
‘Tis the Cross of Christ, that’s in the way.
Christ is standing outside your heart’s door,
To give eternal life, and so much more!

Christ on the Cross, paid your way to Heav’n,
It’s a Gift of God, so freely giv’n.
Our Lord holds the key to Heaven’s gate,
But you must accept Him, ‘fore it’s too late.

The Cross of Christ can be a bridge for you,
Leading directly to God so true.
You are able to live in Glory Land,
But you must take hold of Jesus’ Hand.

On one side or the other, you stand,
Of the Cross of Christ, and Jesus’ Hand.
If you stand with Christ, you’ll go to Heav’n,
To stand beyond the Cross; Hell is giv’n.

THE CROWN AND CROSS WERE HIS . . . Mar.2002, 2016 Message

They borrowed a manger, to use as a bed,
For the precious Babe Jesus, to lay His Head!
They borrowed a colt, for Christ Jesus to ride,
A colt on which no one, had e’er been astride!

Christ borrowed bread, high on the mountain side,
That the crowd’s hunger, might be satisfied!
He borrowed two little fish, from a young lad,
In all the people there, ‘twas all to be had.

Jesus borrowed a boat, in which He sat and taught,
For the great multitude, His vast wisdom sought!
He borrowed a friend’s house, that He might rest,
They lovingly obliged, to this most special Guest!

They borrowed a room, the Last Supper to eat,
An Upper Room, that was high up off the street.
From a very rich man, they borrowed a grave,
Jesus’ sepulcher was a small, lonely cave.

The crown of thorns they crushed, on His precious Head,
Was not a borrowed crown, but His own instead!
The crown of thorns He wore, was His very own,
That dreadful, horrendous crown; was His alone.

The cross that He carried, so very painfully,
Is the cross where He died, in great agony.
That old rugged cross He bore, was His very own,
The cross where He bled and died, was His alone.

THE CRUCIFIED . . . April 2006 Message

Our eyes need a beacon, our tired feet a guide,
There’s One who qualifies; that is the Crucified!
We hunt for a meaning to all life’s mystery,
There’s One who can help; as He whispers: “Follow Me.”

There’s One who can comfort, in our deepest pain,
‘Tis the One who died on the cross, that life we could attain!
There’s One who can make us, God the Father’s friend,
The Blood He shed on the cross, in God’s eyes makes amends!

Everyone needs a shoulder, on which they can cry,
A Place of comfort, to which we’ll never be denied!
There’s One available, whether it be day or night,
I can hear Him whisper: “I will make things bright!”

Our tired aching body, needs a place to rest,
There’s One who qualifies; He’s been thru’ ev’ry test!
He offers peace and joy; we will never be denied,
There’s One well equipped; it is Christ, the Crucified!

There will come a time, when we hear Christ call our name,
High in the clouds; this time glory, no more shame!
If we believe that on that cross, Christ for us died,
Our new bodies will be Heav’n bound, with the Crucified!

THE ‘DAY’ OF THE LORD

Loftiness of men one day shall fall,
In that ‘Day’, they shall all fear God’s call.
Haughtiness of men shall be made low,
Trying to hide from the God they didn’t know.

Exalted shall be the Lord alone!
Evil, wicked men, shall wail and groan.
The ‘Day of the Lord’ will crush all wrong,
All the proud and haughty, and the strong.

Those that are lifted up shall be brought low,
God will one day, His sovereignty show.
When He ariseth, the Earth to shake,
All evil men, in their shoes will quake.

They will fear the Lord and His majesty,
For He’ll punish all for their iniquity.
He will shake the Earth, out of its place,
Gone is the day, of mercy and grace.

The ‘Day of the Lord’ cometh; ‘tis near!
His wrath and fierce anger, all should fear.
He will lay all the land desolate,
And destroy all sinners, out of it.

You need not go thru’ this awful ‘Day’,
Believe His Word; then trust and obey.
Accept His Son; He will save your soul,
Christ will grant Heav’n; He’s in full control!

THE DAY OF THE LORD

It will surely come; the ‘Day of the Lord’,
A time spoken of much, in His Word.
A ‘Day’ God will “shake terribly the Earth”,
And all the proud ones, and those of much worth.

A time of destruction from our great God,
He’ll punish the evil, where e’er they trod.
All their wicked works and iniquity,
All will be doom’d, who are God’s enemy.

A time when God’s vengeance He will reveal,
Yet even then, to Him most will not kneel.
A time of darkness, terror and distress,
A ‘Day’ of horror, against wickedness.

Heaven and Earth shall move out of their place,
Islands and mountains shall flee from God’s Face.
A ‘Day’ of God’s fierce anger, and His wrath,
Not one, will be able to stand in His path.

It shall come to pass; so many will die,
And all because, God’s Christ, they deny!
This ‘Day’ is coming, and not far away,
Trust Christ, you’ll not see this dreadful display.

When you take a firm stand for our Lord,
From worldly pleasures, you’ll be barred.
You’ll be tempted each and ev’ry day,
By the devil’s voice, wanting you to sway.

The devil’s voice, you’ll hear, ev’ry hour,
You need not give in, for you have pow’r.
The Spirit of Christ abides in you,
Resist the devil; to Christ be true.

The devil’s voice will tempt by pride,
You must stand firm, and in Christ abide.
He’ll tempt by pleasure; he’ll lie to you,
Don’t list’ to him, don’t look at his view.

The devil’s voice is subtle and sly,
He’ll try to make you, Jesus deny!
He’ll tempt by lies and hypocrisy,
Satan is your utmost enemy.

The devil’s voice will say: “It’s all right,”
To have those impure thoughts, day or night.
He’ll quote Scripture to lead you astray,
He wants you to follow the wrong way.

When you take a firm stand for our Lord,
The devil’s voice will speak with false words.
Submit to God, the devil will flee,
The power of Christ has made us free.

When the door of my heart, I opened wide,
You came into my life, with me to reside.
A special feeling, this peace deep within,
I now despise, the v’ry thought of sin.

The door to my heart, I kept locked before,
Will always be to You now, an open door.
Many awesome blessings, have come my way,
When I gave You access, that special day.

Into my life, You abundantly poured,
Such amazing riches, a precious hoard.
For my hungry soul, a feast You prepared,
The wealth of Your bounty, You gladly shared.

When that door opened, You became my Friend,
And I claimed Your Promise, life without end.
There can never, ever be, a greater prize,
Than the love that beams, from Your steadfast eyes.

I regret on my heart’s door, I kept a lock,
And let old Satan, my privacy stalk.
Things are different, since I opened the door,
Lord Jesus, I love You, each day more and more!

Are your feet trav’ling the downward path?
Are you headed for God’s righteous wrath?
That slipp’ry path will lead straight to Hell,
Where for eternity, you shall dwell.

The downward path; the easy way to go,
But it leads only to great sorrow.
Walking that path, gets easier each day,
But following Satan, leads to dismay.

The longer on the downward path you stay,
The harder it will be, to turn away.
The old devil will tempt and entice,
But friend, ‘tis you, who will pay the price.

Would you like to leave that downward path?
Do you want to be rid of God’s wrath?
On the narrow, upward path, set your feet,
And a most awesome Friend, you shall meet!

“I want on the path to Heav’n,” you say,
Trusting Jesus is the only way!
When you open your heart’s door to Him,

THE FATHER WAS WATCHING

Christ Jesus was poor, I say with no dread,
A manger’s hay, was a pillow for His Head.
Born in a cold barn, with cattle and sheep,
But the Father was watching, to safely keep.

The Father was watching Herod’s evil schemes,
He safely removed Jesus, from the scene.
Swiftly to Egypt, the fam’ly did flee,
To be kept from harm’s way, so carefully.

As the Boy grew, the Father was watching,
In each day, was God’s abundant blessings.
The Boy’s wisdom astounded the Pharisees,
This Child of knowledge and great mystery.

When John the Baptist, did baptize our Lord,
The Father was watching; spoke special words.
“I am well pleased, with my beloved Son,”
I’m sure those around were completely stunn’d.

The Father was watching in Christ’s ministry,
As He spoke of His true identity.
“He that sees me, has seen the Father too,”
Jesus was saying, He was God thru’ and thru’.

That night, in the Garden of Gethsemane,
The Father was watching, e’er so closely.
“Let this cup pass from Me, but Thy will be done,”
These tormenting words, from God’s own Son.

As they unmercifully scourged God’s dear Son,
Our Saviour’s agony had just begun.
He then hung on the cross, and died for me,
While the Father was watching excruciatingly.

THE FOOT OF THE CROSS

When at the foot of the cross I knelt,
O’erwhelming grief for my sins I felt.
But that great burden roll’d far away,
As I knelt at His cross, that special day.

As I knelt there, peace flooded my soul,
Welcome relief, for conflict took its toll.
Each day anew was worry and stress,
But kneeling there, God truly did bless.

Kneeling at His cross, the tears did flow,
Removing from me, all my sorrow.
Tension and strife had never left me,
But as I knelt, these things did flee.

Joy rushed o’er me, as I did kneel,
‘Twas so amazing, how I did feel.
Jesus’ Presence was ever so near,
Kneeling there, He cast out all my fear.

My life has chang’d, since that day gone by,
For I no longer, my Lord deny.
He made a new person out of me,
He made me a child of God eternally.

To be “born again” you too must go,
And humbly kneel in the cross’ shadow.
Tell Jesus: “I trust my all to Thee,”
And He’ll give you life eternally.

THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

The “fountain of youth’ sought for by most,
Both the rich and poor, from coast to coast.
Millions of dollars are spent by these,
That their pride and ego, they might appease.

The ‘fountain of youth’ by most is sought,
In error, they think youth can be bought.
In truth, they all look in the wrong place,
Yet, on and on, for youth they do race!

The ‘fountain of youth’; where should we look?
The one true answer, is God’s great Book!
Eternal life is offered to all,
The rich and the poor; the great and small!

The ‘fountain of youth’ is Christ the Lord,
So very plainly told in His Word!
We need to look in the proper place,
Friend, that is just His glorious Face!

To stay ever young, there’s only one Way,
Accept Christ Jesus, this very day!
He’s the ‘fountain of youth’ for you and me,
He grants life in Heaven, eternally.

Which of these two, is your desire?
Most folks have not thought much ‘bout this,

Most go thru’ life, not thinking of God,

Just the comfort of each new day,
Is in their thoughts, as they go their way!

This Earth is not our perm’nent home,
We’re just pilgrims, as we do roam.
We’re given this time, to decide,
Where for eternity we will abide!

God does live, in Heaven above,
Where there’s peace and joy, and great love!
Those gates of Heaven, have just one Key,
Christ Jesus, is His identity!

Without our Lord, there’s just Hell’s fires,

To deliver, at the right hour!

THE GREAT PHYSICIAN

To the blind man, “Go wash” He did say,
He did as told, and had sight that day.
Many lepers, by Jesus was seen,
He healed them all, by words, “Be thou clean.”

He cast out devils; healed all that were sick,
Words were the power; words did the trick.
Christ restored a man’s withered hand,
All diseases, He healed, thru’ the land.

The lame, blind, dumb, maimed and many more,
Were cast at His feet; and He did restore.
The lunatick was healed by His power,
That child was cured, that very hour.

The greatest Physician the world does know,
Healed vast multitudes that did follow.
Into the Temple, to Him they came,
There He did heal the blind and the lame.

A deaf and dumb man, to Him was brought,
A miracle, was what this man sought.
His ears were opened; and he spoke plain,
Knowing this ‘Doctor’ is such great gain.

He heals the body, also the soul,
The great Physician, can make you whole!
Turn to Christ Jesus, by faith today,
He’ll heal, COMPLETELY, and for alway.

This Doctor can heal, this very day,
Cleanse you from sin; send you Heaven’s way.
But you must have faith; YOU MUST BELIEVE,
God grants Heav’n, if His Son you receive.

Salvation thru’ Him is our greatest joy,

Thru’ Christ comes the greatest victory,
Triumph o’er death, the great enemy.
The greatest object; glorify God,
Now and forever, here and abroad.

The greatest knowledge we can possess,
Is to ‘know’ Jesus; for God will bless.
The greatest peace, is the peace Christ gives,
Passing all understanding, as we live.

The greatest bargain we’ll ever find,
Choose Christ and leave worldly ‘things’ behind.
The greatest inheritance, yet to come,
All the glory of our Heav’nly Home.

To lose our soul is our greatest loss,
Did you ever consider the cost?
The greatest neglect is salvation,
Turning your back on God’s precious Son.

The greatest crime, according to God,
Is to reject His Son, as you trod.
Your sentence: eternity in Hell,
There in agony, for e’er you’ll dwell.

THE HOLY SPIRIT’S JOB

God’s Spirit shall not always strive with man,
But today it seems God’s forgotten this plan.
But I’m here to tell you, God’s in control,
Of all the world, including your soul!

God grew impatient back in Noah’s day,
With mankind’s unending wicked display.
God set a time limit; hoping they’d change,
They would not listen, from God were estranged.

Noah and his family, secure in the ark,
Were the only ones safe; for God they did hark.
God’s Spirit did strive with the lost back then,
But they rejected Him, o’er and o’er again!

The day finally came, that God shut the door,
His patience had ended; He could take no more.
Ev’ry soul was destroyed, the world wide,
All except those in the ark; all safe inside!

God will never condemn to Hell, any soul,
Until His Spirit has fulfilled His roll.
Striving, convicting, wooing each single one,
Trying gently, but firmly, that heart to be won!

God’s patience will one day run out for you,
His Spirit will leave; His rejection through!
As long as you feel that tugging at your heart,
It’s not too late for you, from sin to depart!

Noah’s ark of old, represents Jesus today,
Are you like the many, God destroyed that day?
You can be like Noah; all secure inside,
Just believe God; and let Christ be your guide!

These blessings, from you, I pray will come.
And words, precious words, please give to me,
That some may find life, eternally.

That the lost I encounter, I might reach,

THE KINGDOM OF GOD

“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God,” are His words,
We need God’s righteousness, to be in accord.
Christ is the Ruler, in the Kingdom of God,
We must make Him ‘Master’; not some evil fraud.

The Kingdom of God must be firm in our hearts,
And Christ must be ‘King’, or from us He’ll depart.
His great Kingdom will last for eternity,
Trust and obey Him, and Heav’n is your decree.

Christ sits on the throne, in the Kingdom of God,
The Son of the Highest; and no one shall prod.
He’ll reign forever, His Kingdom has no end,
He is our Saviour; and wants to be your ‘Friend’.

Seek the Lord and His strength, and Face evermore,
If you want to see God, and live on Heav’n’s shore.
Call on Him, seek Him while He may yet be found,
Those who don’t, in Hell’s prison, they will be bound.

“Ask, it shall be given, seek, and ye shall find,”
Christ tells us this, so we won’t be left behind.
“Knock, and it shall be opened unto you,”
God can’t lie; this is precious little to do.

If we’d seek His Kingdom first, as Christ does stress,
He’d give us food and water, and clothes to dress.
He knows what we need, each day to get thru’,
“O’ ye of little faith” --- is He speaking to you?

The LORD

When I lean on His strong Arm alone,
Great love from Jesus is clearly shown.
How can I possibly know defeat?
When vict’ry from the Lord, is complete!

Nothing is hid from His all-seeing Eye,
Not even one tear drop, nor a sigh.
Worry is something that need not be,
Trust the Saviour, and doubts will flee!

Dear Lord, let me walk in faith, this day,
Let me trust your precious Word, always.
No enemy, nor storm, shall I fear,
I know I am safe, when You are near!

He marks out my steps, forever more,
He leads me on, by going before.
As a Good Shepherd leading His sheep,
All who trust Him, He tenderly keeps!

Please grant me dear Lord, the strength today,
To aid in each task that comes my way.
Grant that I may live my whole life thru’,
Doing each day, the best I can do!

Lord, thank You for Promises You make,
Especially the one “I will not forsake.”
Lord, thank You for life eternally,
And thank You now, for peace and serenity!

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD . . . Feb.2002 Message

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want,
He provides all my needs, always abundant.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures,
Giving me rest, and food, that I may endure.

He leadeth me beside the still waters,
Giving refreshment to His sons and daughters.
He restores my soul; leads me in right paths,
Gives strength to honor Him, and keep from His wrath.

Walking thru’ the shadowy valley of death,
I know you are near, and you give me breath.
I fear no evil; for thou art with me
Giving me comfort, and walking so closely.

You provide food in front of my enemies,
Your abundant blessings flow so freely.
Goodness and mercy shall follow me, all my days,
And Heaven, with you, awaits; my eternal stay!

I will follow Him, in willing accord.
Trusting completely, I’ll follow Him,
For He lightens my path, it’s never dim.

I shall not want, He fills all my needs,
My thirst and hunger, He always feeds.
He restores my soul to righteousness,
So many ways, my Shepherd does bless.

He leads me only in paths that are right,
And He never lets me out of His sight.
For His Name’s sake, He does all these things,
Leading me on, to life everlasting.

Tho’ thru’ death’s shadowy valley I walk,
His Presence is near, as my fears He stalks.
His rod and His staff, they comfort me,
I’ll continue to follow Him joyously.

Secured and refreshed; my Shepherd provides,
Tho’ enemies are near, in Him I confide.
My cup runs over, I have perfect joy,
His wisdom, love and pow’r, I do employ.

His goodness and mercy shall follow me,
Here on Earth, and on thru’ eternity.
One day I shall dwell in His Home on high,
For my Shepherd states that I qualify.

THE LORD OF CHRISTMAS

Homes on Christmas eve, are filled with guests untold,
But the Lord of Christmas, is left out in the cold!
Eating, drinking and dancing, till the morning light,
But the Lord of Christmas, is left out in the night!

Gala gifts galore, beneath the Christmas tree,
For the Lord of Christmas, not ev’n one for Thee!
Such joyous, happy faces; not one is grim,
For the Lord of Christmas, not one smile is for Him!

Christmas feast on the table; how folks do eat,
But the Lord of Christmas, is left hungry on the street!
Christmas holiday finally comes to an end,
But the Lord of Christmas, rarely has a friend!

Such joy and happiness, people do display,
Most forget the Lord of Christmas, was born that day!
Showing of love is good, but the rest is pagan sprees,
Lord of Christmas, we should show more love to Thee!

My husband and I no longer celebrate "Christmas" as we once did.
We now consider it a pagan holiday and want no part of it. If it
were a "Godly" holiday, a day where people praised and honored and glorified CHRIST . . . WHY would SO many heathens celebrate it? Christ was NOT born in December! We believe that Christ should be honored EVERY day, NOT just one day! See our article: http://www.hisservants.org/christmas_h_s.htm

THE LOVE OF CHRIST

Deeper than the deepest part of the sea,
Is the love of our Lord, for you and me.
Love sincere, coming from deep in His Heart,
Love for God’s children, will ne’er depart.

His love is wider that the Heav’n’s above,
As wide As His outstretched Arms, is His love.
As He hung on the cross, and died for you,
So wide is His love, and merciful too.

His love is higher than Mount Everest,
And friend, it will stand your toughest test.
Higher and brighter than the clear blue sky,
Here for us now, on thru’ the by and by.

Our Saviour’s love is perfect and complete,
Friend all your needs, His awesome love can meet.
Just His love can see you, to Heav’n above,
What a tremendous Lord, what amazing love.

THE LOVE OF JESUS

Your spouse or friends can cut you to the quick,
But Jesus’ love is there, thru’ thin and thick.
You will never have a better Friend,
The love of Jesus is there to the end!

Those you love best can say harsh, evil words,
This won’t happen in friendship with our Lord.
Always there to aid with grace and mercy,
The love of Jesus is there, constantly!

Those you trust the most can walk out on you,
But Jesus’ love for you is tried and true.
He will never abandon, nor forsake,
Trust Jesus as your Friend; it’s NO mistake!

Those you care about at times act with hate,
Jesus is love; always compassionate.
Jesus loves you, and He really does care,
He will never leave you; He’s always there!

THE MAN FROM GALILEE

Many times in quiet Galilee,
Jesus walked beside the peaceful sea.
Oft’ times He would sit and speak with men,
Telling the Gospel, again and again!

Christ Jesus did teach the gather’d throngs,
Always teaching right, and never wrong.
Many times close to the Galilee,
Teaching erring ones, teaching purity!

Gentle Jesus’ touch, could the leper heal,
He made blind eyes see, and hard hearts feel.
Always urging, from their sin to turn,
And for closeness to God, they should yearn!

One word from Him could calm the raging sea,
Or free the lost soul, from agony.
He showed awesome compassion and love,
This only begotten Son, of God above!

Sinless Jesus met the Wicked One,
For the devil tempted, God’s own Son,
But Christ o’ercome evil, by purity,
This impressive Man, from Galilee.

This awesome Man, is Jesus our Lord,
Our precious Saviour, who should be ador’d.
This tranquil, kind Man from Galilee,
Can bless you with life eternally!

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THE WORLD

Most important in the world to me,
Is not what most folk would think to be.
The greatest asset I have, is God’s Son,
For with Him, I’ll ne’er see perdition.

Such great joy and peace within my heart,
For I know deep down, He’ll ne’er depart.
He’s with me now, today and always,
To the end of this Earth’s fleeting days.

He gives me victory o’er my sin,
A wondrous Saviour, always has been!
He paid the debt I could never pay,
And the Father’s wrath, from me did sway!

Christ died on that Cross, that I might live,
All that He had, for me He did give.
This kind of love the world does not know,
Only Christ Jesus this love could show.

When my brief life here on Earth is thru’,
He’ll see that my angels will rescue!
They’ll carry my soul to my Heav’nly Home,
Into God’s presence; and I’ll ne’er roam!

If you do not know my wondrous “Friend”,
He’s there for you, and life He’ll extend.
Only my Jesus can give Heav’n’s key,
And in Heav’n you’ll live, with Him and me!

Path of Light, The . . . May 2007 & Jan 2012 Messages

On the path of light, with You I’ll walk,
So You can assist, when Satan stalks.
I’ve not a chance, against Satan’s darts,
If You and I Lord, are far apart.

On the path of light, with You I’ll stay,
For I need Your Presence, ev’ry day.
Without You Lord, I would surely fall,
But with You Lord, I can do it all.

I’ll stay with You, on that lighted path,
‘Tis how I avoid, the Father’s wrath.
Darkness and evil, from me will flee,
For You dear Jesus, take care of me.

Staying with You, on the path of light,
Removes my worries, doubts and my fright.
Such a comfort, to have You so near,
Your perfect love, casts out all my fear.

On the path with You, lighted so well,
Eliminates all terror of Hell.
I will with Your help, on that path walk,
And fellowship with You, as we talk.

Keep me please, Lord, on that narrow path,
For I want none of, the Father’s wrath.
In Heaven with You, I want to dwell,
And just You Lord, the Father’s wrath can quell.

THE PEACE OF GOD

Great peace have all those who love God’s Word,
‘Tis giv’n abundantly by the Lord.
In perfect peace, our great God will keep,
In light of day, or night when you sleep.

This peace, just the righteous can obtain.
God graciously gives, to relieve life’s pain.

Peace: is a legacy from our Lord,

We need not be troubled, nor have fear,
For the Spirit of Christ, is always near.

The peace of God, I cannot explain,

Will the day ahead bring joy or sorrow?
We cannot tell; only He does know.
We may suffer in our hour of pain,
But the pow’r of Christ with us remains.

For He gives pow’r that we should not sway.
Trials and temptations; they will come,

But God and His awesome pow’r stepped in,
Giving peace when He remov’d the chains of sin.
The Father, thru’ Christ, we can now access,

In the quiet beauty of the night,
His Presence seems like a brilliant Light.
His purpose for me is clearly shown,
To the lost souls, make His Gospel known.

In the bustling confusion of the day,
His near Presence is with me always.
He plainly shows what He wants of me,
Try to change a lost soul’s destiny.

All the day long, my heart wants to sing.
His purpose for me, He shows so clear,
Boldly bring His Gospel, with no fear.

His majestic Presence makes me glow,
‘Tis a privilege, my Saviour to know.
“Go ye therefore,” He clearly demands,
His desire: that I obey His command.

Tho’ persecution abound, far and near,
I must serve my Master, with no fear.
Man can hurt my body, but ne’er my soul,

Traveling is easy on the road to Hell,
Satan surely sees to that, wants you there to dwell.
There are many good intentions, seen too late,
That cannot keep you from Hell’s awful gate.

Hell does not scare men away from their sin,
But ev’n knowing this, we must try, souls to win!
‘Tis a dreadful place; chains, darkness, fire, pain,
With no escape; no light, ever again!

Wide is the gate, broad is the way to Hell,
We must try to warn folk, and of Christ, tell!
We must teach ‘bout Hell, with tears in our eyes,
Tell of our Saviour, and Heav’n in the skies.

With Christ I have comfort, with Him I am blest!

I have no fear, for He’ll take my hand,
As I journey on to the Promis’d Land.
Tho’ clouds of affliction gather ‘round,
My Saviour leads onward; I’m Heav’n bound!

THE SPECIAL MAN

Walking down a lonely, dusty street,
A Special Man, with sandals on His feet.
Love beamed from His glorious Face,
Love that came from His Heart, wondrous grace.

This Special Man; when He look’d at you,
Could see your very soul, thru’ and thru’.
What an Awesome Man, to know all things,
Knew your thoughts, ‘fore from your mouth they’d spring.

He was so loving, patient, and kind,
Took pity on the lame, sick and blind.
Such compassion; no one can compare,
He spread His great mercy, ev’ry where.

This Special Man, was meek and lowly,
His Face was filled with serenity.
Never a cross word did He e’er say,
For He came, His Father, to portray.

Never from Him a vile or vain word,
Serene, gentle, and mild, was our Lord.
The Words He spoke, made you stop and think,
Those Words were for God; a direct link.

This Special Man, with powers untold,
Can grant you access, to streets of gold.
He too, shall judge all the world one day,
So make the right choice; go the right way!

THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST . . . March 2015 Message

The Spirit of Christ is wholly divine,
Pure, sacred and holy; for e’er to shine!
The Spirit of Christ is deity,
But all too many from Him do flee.

The Spirit of Christ is fearfully wise,
With knowledge He’s willing to devise.
The Spirit of Christ is righteousness,
Always trying to take us from darkness.

The Spirit of Christ is tender and warm,
Not wanting to do anyone harm.
The Spirit of Christ is quiet and calm,
With never a misgiving or qualm.

The Spirit of Christ is gentle and mild,
He’s never savage, cruel, or wild.
The Spirit of Christ will persevere,
He’ll not leave nor forsake; have no fear!

The Spirit of Christ is compassionate,
He’ll help in our trouble, what e’er our fate.
The Spirit of Christ is lowly and meek,
All our heavy burdens, He does seek.

The Spirit of Christ is so patient,
Wanting all the lost souls to repent.
The Spirit of Christ wants to forgive,
So that in Heav’n, with Him, we can live.

The Spirit of Christ wants to liberate,
Our sin-filled life, He so does hate.
The Spirit of Christ is purely love,
Sent by the Father from Heav’n above.

THE STONE ON THE TOMB . . . April 2001 Message

Why was the stone on the tomb roll’d away?
You must admit, ‘twas an awesome display!
Was the stone moved, so Christ could get out?
‘Tis a subject, most don’t think about!

The stone was roll’d away from the sepulcher,
This had to be, an amazing picture!
Mary Magdalene, was the first to see,
Jesus had risen! the tomb was empty!

The stone was moved, so others could get in,
To see the great vict’ry, Jesus did win!
He was raised from the dead; He was raised!
Praise be to Almighty God! Praise, praise praise!

The stone was roll’d away, so they could tell,
Christ was alive! all their fears they could quell.
Two angels in white sat where Christ had lain,
“He is not here, He is risen” they did explain!

The disciples were gath’red Sunday evening,
In their midst stood their Master and King!
The doors were shut, but that didn’t stop the Lord,
The hearts of these men, were indeed stirred.

Calmly He spoke to them: “Peace be unto you,”
He showed them His Hands so they’d know He was true.
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,”
We must tell the world, Christ is our salvation!

THE SUNSHINE OF CHRIST

Storms come, but soon the clouds roll away,
The sun then shines thru’, and makes a better day.
Life at times, can be like a dark storm too,
We must let the Sunshine of Christ, see us thru’.

When storms of life come, we need not walk alone,
Jesus is there, making His Presence known.
He’ll share our heavy burdens, and our grief,
The Sunshine of Christ, can be great relief.

No storm is ever a forever thing,
Dark clouds break away, and sunshine bring,
No matter how bad a storm may seem,
The Sunshine of Christ, will cast its beam.

When a storm of life comes to you,
What is the first thing that you should do?
The Sunshine of Christ, this I recommend,
Jesus can help you; there’s no better Friend!

THE THOUSAND YEARS

The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, side by side,
The leopard and kid, together shall reside.
The calf and young lion together shall eat,
A little child shall lead them down the street.

The cow and the bear’s young ones shall lie together,
Lions shall eat straw like the ox, in the pasture.
The toddler shall play on the hole of the asp,
In a snake’s den a child his hand can cast.

The Earth shall be full of knowledge of the Lord,
As Almighty God is simply adored.
To the root of Jesse, Gentiles shall seek,
And glorious shall His rest be, to the meek.

People will live in the houses they build,
Eating fruit of their vineyards till they are fill’d.
Ev’ry man shall sit under his own fig tree,
Laziness will be gone, for eternity.

Judging the Earth, our Lord of purity,
He will judge all people with equity.
With righteousness, He shall judge ev’ry one,
Lord of lords, King of kings, God’s only Son.

Nations shall beat their swords into plowshares,
There will not be any wars, any where.
Satan will in the bottomless pit be bound,
That he should not deceive people nor confound.

The time I have left, be it hours, days or years,
I commit to You, without any fears.
I know You will guide and protects always,
You will see me thru’ the rest of my days,

As I go thru’ each day, serving You Lord,
I covet ev’ry encouraging word.
Satan tries to suppress, desperately,
Lord, I ask that You give me victory.

With the time I have left, I must serve You,
But You must give wisdom and words so true.
I must try to reach lost souls ev’ry where,
Bring them the Gospel, to show them You care.

THE TIME IS NEAR

Jesus, your time to come is so near,
I gaze at the clouds, without a fear.
Soon, in the clouds, with a great shout, you’ll come,
To take those ‘in Christ’ to their new Home!

Deceivers are many, in the world today,
Saying they are Christ; leading astray!
Wars and rumors of wars, all about,
Christ said it would happen; so don’t doubt!

Famines, disease, earthquakes, near and far,
Sorrows from all these, and hateful war.
Many false prophets shall deceive folk,
Sin will abound; and true love seem a joke.

Only of their own selves, shall men love,
Greedy, proud, boasters; they push and shove!
Disobedient to parents, unthankful,
Unholy, blasphemers, unmerciful.

Natural affection, is no more,
Liars, fierce, high minded; bad to the core!
Loving pleasure, more than they love God,
Showing ‘godliness’, but complete frauds.

All these He has told, must come to be,
Then Christ can claim His ‘bride’, in victory!
Be ready, for we know not the hour,
Christ will come in the clouds, in great power.

THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS

Joseph and Mary were nobodies, in that day,
Peasants from a nothing town, pretty far away.
Slowly, they made their way, to tiny Bethlehem,
God was setting the scene, and His plan included them!

The Baby Mary carried, was not a Caesar fraud,
Not a mortal ruler, who would CLAIM to be God.
But a far greater wonder; God became a Man,
What a wondrous event, and so hard to understand.

When they came to the inn; ‘twas no room to be had,
Just a crude stable, but they did not think it bad!
In this humiliation, the Son of God was born,
NOT a prince or king, but a pauper, forlorn.

We must ne’er forget, this is where it all began,
Christ comes to all those in need, this being God’s plan.
He is born in the hearts of those poor in spirit,
Another wondrous event; God and man are knit.

God’s angel told the shepherds of this special birth,
Shepherds were a lowly group; and not of much worth.
The angel said the ‘GOOD NEWS’ was for ALL people,
Christ was born to save us, and make our lives more full.

Christmas is not enough, just about His birth to HEAR,
We must THINK about the Christ, in much Godly fear!
It’s not enough to LOOK at all the manger scenes,
Then go about your business, like you’d not even seen!

Christmas may make you FEEL good; you love all the bells,
But unless Christ is ‘BORN IN YOU’ all roads lead to Hell!
He came into this world, for just one special aim,
That He be ‘born in you’ and for your soul to claim!

My husband and I no longer celebrate "Christmas" as we once did.
We now consider it a pagan holiday and want no part of it. If it
were a "Godly" holiday, a day where people praised and honored and glorified CHRIST . . . WHY would SO many heathens celebrate it? Christ was NOT born in December! We believe Jesus should be honored EVERY day, NOT just one day a year! See our article: http://www.hisservants.org/christmas_h_s.htm

The Vast Realm of Eternity . . . June 2009 & Jan.2011 Message

Consider the life that is to be,
In the vast realm of eternity.
Do you think, of what the future holds?
Will you e’er walk, on that street of gold?

The river - - - clear and pure, did you know?
The water of life, from God’s Throne flows.
In the midst of the street, on each side,
Is the tree of life, that God provides.

No more curse, shall e’er again be found,
Just blessings from the Lord, will abound.
We shall at last see, His precious Face,
And first hand feel, His amazing grace.

There shall never be, any more night,
Just the brilliance, of our Saviour’s Light.
No sun or moon, will this City need,
Glory from God and the Lamb, shall proceed.

No more death, sorrow, crying or pain,
From all these things, we shall abstain.
Nothing that defiles, shall enter in,
Gone will be wickedness and sin.

Consider now, the other life to be,
In the vast realm of eternity.
Most will go in, thru’ Hell’s one lone gate,
The Lake of Fire, is the sinner’s fate.

No exit doors, just smoke and darkness,
Here, God’s Glory is gone; He won’t bless.
God’s wondrous Presence, you won’t e’er see,
You’ll be bann’d for e’er, from His mercy.

Agonizing screams, will never cease,
Christ is not there, so you’ll have no peace.
All the wonder of Heav’n, you’ll never see,
Just non-stop suff’ring, eternally.

Only two roads, to eternity,
One leads to bliss, the other - - - agony.
Your future in your own hands, you hold,
Eternal suff’ring - - - or the street of gold.

THE VOICE OF THE LORD

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ speaks oft’ to me,
Warning of sin and iniquity!
Trying to show right roads to take,
Trying to keep me from bad mistakes!

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ speaks to my heart,
Love and comfort to me it imparts!
It tells me just how much He does care,
Wants me of His love, to be aware!

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ to me does speak,
Assures me of His pow’r when I’m weak!
For I know without Him, I am nothing,
O how I love my Saviour and King!

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ speaks soft and low,
Each time I hear it, it makes me glow!
For it always leads in all right ways,
Leading me onward to Heav’n’s arrays!

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ sounds above the sea,
It’s filled with power and majesty!
It can boom as thunder in a storm so fierce,
Or e’er so softly, your heart it can pierce.

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ can be filled with wrath,
For those who refuse to walk on His path.
Those who reject Him, and won’t believe,
His Voice one day will say: “Hell you receive.”

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ can be filled with love,
Just simply believe our God from above!
Trust and accept Him, and His Voice obey,
For to access Heav’n, there’s NO other way!

Think About

Think about Christ Jesus, crucified,
‘Bout the “few” who Him, have not denied.
Think about God’s love, for you and me,
And ‘bout where you’ll spend eternity.

Think ‘bout the many, on Hell’s broad path,
Their unbelief brings God’s holy wrath.
So few, about eternity think.
That’s why so many, stand on Hell’s brink.

Think about life’s many diff’rent paths,
Then think about our God’s holy wrath.
Millions never think of Judgment Day,
They just keep trav’ling, down the wrong way.

Think about all the world’s wickedness,
Then think about God’s love and goodness.
There are just two roads in life today,
One leads to Heav’n, the other Hell’s way.

Think ‘bout where you’ll spend eternity,
Think ‘bout Hell’s eternal agony.
Then think ‘bout Heav’n’s eternal bliss,
What could ever be better than this?

God allows us freedom to decide,
It is our choice where we will reside.
But when our life on this Earth is thru,
There will be no more choices for you.

Think about these words that I have said,
My friend, Hell will be eternal dread.
This life on Earth is where we decide,
The eternal place where we’ll reside.

THINK OF

Think of the most severe pain you’ve had,
Do you remember, how you hurt so bad?
In Heav’n there’ll be no pain e’er again,
For all those who are, God’s dear children.

Think of the deepest sorrow you’ve known,
Do you remember how your heart did moan?
In Heav’n there’ll not any sorrow be,
For all God’s children, for eternity.

Think of all the sad times you did cry,
Remember when people hurt you and lied?
There’ll be no sad tears on Heav’n’s shore,
Happiness for God’s children is in store.

Think of the death of a dear lov’d one,
Remember loneliness with no place to run?
In Heav’n, death no longer will take its toll,
Ev’rything there is in God’s control.

No more death, sorrow, crying, or pain,
Will God’s children e’er encounter again.
For former things are all passed away,
In Heav’n we’ll have only blissful days.

Blessed are they who our Lord obey,
For these will see Heav’n’s glorious array.
These will enter the gates of the City,
For e’er to have peace and serenity.

This amazing God of eternity.
If you’re God’s child, He’ll come thru’ for you,
With so many blessings, each day anew.

Every need you have, He will supply,
And your ardent pray’rs, won’t be denied.

That we have help in life, as we run our race.

He will give you His Spirit, to abide,
Great contentment you will feel, deep inside.
A peace like none other, you’ve ever known,
Is placed in your soul, as His love is shown.

A storehouse of love, He will give to you,
When you become, one of the faithful few.
This deep well of love, will never run dry,
The more you give away, the more He’ll supply.

Wondrous joy is felt, no matter your strife,
For deep down you know, you have eternal life.
Too, deep down you know, He’ll not leave, not forsake,
You’ll feel His Presence, ev’n in your mistakes.

He’ll fully forgive you, when you repent,
To the bottom of the sea, your sins are sent.
This grand peace, not one other can supply,
On this amazing God, you can rely.

You can also expect, a mansion up there,
For our amazing God, truly does care.
But you must be God’s child, you must believe,
Or none of God’s blessings, will you receive.

Death’s doorway will be won by all,
Unless in the clouds comes God’s Son.

When we walk thru’ the dark shadows,
To all God’s children; Heav’n’s bestow’d.
So as we walk, we need not fear,
His loving presence is so near!

Death is NOT extermination,
It is instead, germination!
Our soul shall never, ever die,
It lives for e’er, in Hell, or Heav’n high.

You’ll go the way of all the Earth,
No matter who you are, or your worth!
You too will go when God does call,
To Heav’n high, OR to Hell you’ll fall!

THE WINNING TEAM

There will be only one, winning team,
Led by our Saviour, who does redeem.
The other team shall lose, drastically,
For Satan leads, to Hell’s agony.

Christ Jesus leads to Heav’n’s glory land,
When we trust in Him, and take His Hand.
Satan leads you, to the pits of Hell,
Where in non-stop horror, you shall dwell.

The fierce battle goes on, constantly,
Where two coaches vie, for your loyalty.
With one you will be on the big, broad path,
The Other leads away, from God’s wrath.

So forcefully, the conflict goes on,
Tis Satan fighting, with God’s own Son.
We all can choose, to which side we’ll go,
The end of one is bliss, the other sorrow.

We’re all in a battle, ev’ry day,
We must pick a team, as we go our way.
Tis a spiritual fight, we must not lose,
We must be careful, which side we choose.

Spiritual warfare goes on ev’ry hour,
We must not give in, we must not cow’r.

THE WONDER OF PRAYER

Each morning, I go to God in pray’r,
In hopes that He will end all my cares.
As my eyes open to the new day,
God gives me light, and shows me the way!

When I face a problem I can’t solve,
Pray’r gives me peace, and worries dissolve!
When I go to God, my strength re-news,
Life’s troubles take on a diff’rent view!

With God, nothing is impossible,
Pray’r brings to us, God’s pow’r in full!
My problems can’t be solved on my own,
I’m weak, and I’ll fall, if I stand alone1

Pray’r is like meeting God in the garden,
For when I ask, my sins He’ll pardon!
Pray’r is receiving from Him great pow’r,
That to the devil, I might not cow’r!

Without God’s grace and wisdom, we’ll lose,
Problems of life, will badly confuse.
We must go, to the Lord God in pray’r,
Only His help can remove our cares!

Without the pow’r of pray’r, we will fail,
Man’s best help, will be to no avail!
You don’t have to face, not one hopeless day,
God will always help you, when you pray!

THE WORLD OVERLOOKS THE GREATEST BLESSING

The world overlooks, the Greatest Treasure,
All they desire, is riches and pleasures.
Just of the ‘here and now’, do people think,
They don’t realize that they, are on death’s brink.

The Greatest Treasure, the world cannot see,
For they never think, of eternity.
Always too busy, to ev’n look His way,
They are too busy, rushing thru’ their day.

The world overlooks, what Jesus can do,
He and He alone to Heav’n, can take you.
But most people think, there are many ways,
And they just reject, what the Bible says!

When the world, the Greatest Treasure denies,
Satan rejoices, and false hopes applies.
People follow him, on that big broad road,
That lead to agony, in Hell’s abode.

The world speaks of Christ, just in blasphemy,
Cursing, vile jokes, friend, this should not be!
And they call those who love Him, Jesus’ freaks,
On Judgment Day, fear shall come, when Jesus speaks.

IF the world would just turn, to the Greatest Treasure,
He could give them comfort, peace and pleasure.
His grace is sufficient for us, always,
And He ne’er leaves, ne’er forsakes, all our days.

For the whole world, this Great Treasure is there.
Jesus is available, everywhere!
Be wise my friend, accept Jesus today,
For to get to Heav’n, there’s no other way!

THERE

There to guide me, each step of the way,
From snares and pitfalls, leading always!
Away from Satan’s sly temptations,
Lord, You are my only salvation!

There, to give light, in darkness so deep,
My soul You guard well, my soul You keep!
Such precious light You shed on my road,
Lord, with You, I shall make my abode!

There, to comfort, when I have great pain,
Awesome contentment, I do attain!
My heart You console and satisfy,
Lord, because of Christ, I qualify!

There, to give me vast peace and joy,
No one, no where, can ever destroy!
This splendid feeling, deep in my heart,
Lord, please stay near, don’t ever depart!

There, to teach me, in all that I do,
Knowledge from You, Lord, is tried and true!
Never any falsehoods will You teach,
Lord, for Your wisdom, I’ll always reach!

There, to forgive, when I go astray,
Mercy is mine, all hours of the day.
Compassion comes in the form of grace,
Lord, You forgive, and my sins erase!

There, great love, You offer and show me,
That love is a wondrous mystery!
Sending Your Son; and if I believe,
Lord, my soul’s salvation, I receive!

Lord I thank You, for You’re always there,
Your Presence shows me, You truly care!
Thank You Lord, that You’ll never forsake,
Even when I’m wrong, and make mistakes!

THERE ARE TWO ROADS

There are two roads, which one will you take?
It’s a decision, ev’ry one must make.
The choice, is completely up to you,
But the Lord really does care, what you do.

There are two roads, one narrow, one wide,
Which one will you take, as thru’ life you stride?
The narrow one, is harder to stay on,
The wide one leads you away, from God’s Son.

The strait, narrow road, to Heaven will lead,
As with Christ you walk, and to Him you heed.
That big, broad road is easier, ‘tis true,
But on that road, Satan will walk with you.

Which road will you take? there are only two,
Look carefully, from eternity’s view.
The small road takes you, where the Lord resides,
The broad road goes, to where Satan will abide.

Consider carefully, the choice you make,
It’s either Heaven, or the Fiery Lake.
Heaven will be total comfort and peace,
Hell will be agony, with no release.

Forgiven and gone, thru’ God’s only Son.

There is One who can make your road look bright,

The Light of Jesus can shine on your road,
This grand blessing, on you can be bestow’d.

There is One who can grant you peace and rest,
And be with you always in all your tests.
You will have such joy, way down deep inside,
For the Spirit of Christ will always abide.

There is One who can make you the Father’s friend,
Being God’s enemy, leads to a horrid end.
Jesus can justify you in God’s eyes,
“Not guilty” can be the Father’s reply.

There is One who can be with you always,
Never leaving nor forsaking, all your days!
Just why would you settle for something less?
When you can have Jesus, the very best?

There is One who patiently waits your call,
Our precious Saviour, our All in All.
He will not ever, force Himself on you,
But open your heart, and He will rescue.

THERE TO GUIDE

He leads me to green pastures and cool still waters,
Guiding me truly, so nothing else does matter.
He has promised to supply our every need,
What more can we ask of Him? we ought to take heed.

To the meek He has promised to teach us His way,
Always there to guide us, during the night or day.
For He is our God, for today and forever,
With us unto death, allowing nothing to sever.

He is there to guide us with His counsel so great,
If we would but listen to Him, we could walk straight.
Most follow Satan, on the crooked path of sin,
Even many Christians, to temptations give in.

So what is the answer, as we go thru’ the day?
This I can tell you, from old Satan keep away!
Turn your eyes upon the One who really is true,
He’s always there to guide you, whatever you do!

Listen closely for that still, small voice of the Lord,
His Spirit within you, really wants to be heard!
Don’t be too busy or indifferent this day,
For He is there to guide you, each step of the way!

THERE WASN’T MUCH LOVE

There wasn’t much love, ‘til you came in,
My life was filled with evil and sin.
Hatred and malice were in my heart,
And cursing and lies, my days did start!

‘Til you came in, there wasn’t much love,
I never thought about God above!
Evil to my neighbor, I would do,
No one could count on my words to be true.

There wasn’t much love, ‘til you came along,
I lusted after all that was wrong!
But one sweet day, things started to change,
You, Jesus, my life, did re-arrange!

Now there is love, abundant and true,
Such wondrous love, could come, only from you!
Love fills my heart, for you Lord, and man,
I realize now, that this is your plan!

We must each fill our days with wondrous love,
Supplied from you dear Lord, from above!
Hate and bitterness from us must leave,
Replaced with love, so no one we’ll grieve.

Things God Cannot Do

Consider, are there things God cannot do?
There are many; don’t doubt it, this fact is true.
God cannot lie, all words He speaks stand firm,
And of eternal life, this He does affirm.

God cannot sin, He is eternally pure,
Of this fact, we can be forever sure.
Sin or evil, He cannot tolerate,
You must accept Christ, to see Heav’n’s gate.

God cannot reject, someone who believes,
He will accept them, when Christ they receive.
God cannot, in our life, take second place,
He must be number One, if we want His grace.

Your way to Heav’n, God cannot accept,
You must use His Plan, His Son, so perfect.
On Christ’s precious Blood, God cannot turn His back,
Without Christ Jesus, God’s friendship you lack.

God cannot change the past, but there’s no need,
For His all-knowing wisdom, does exceed.
Our forgiv’n sins, God cannot remember,
We need not doubt, we need not cower.

All the things our awesome God cannot do,
Are marvelous blessings, for me and you.
Our God is gracious, and full of mercy,
Loving His children, for eternity.

THINGS JESUS DID NOT DO

Many ponder on things Jesus did do,
Wonderful! for He was love, thru’ and thru.
But many and great are the countless things,
Things He did not do, that to us blessings bring.

As He hung on the cross, many things He could have done,
For He had vast pow’r, He was God’s own Son!
But Jesus did not, His own will demand,
Instead committed His all, to His father’s Hand!

He did not defend Himself, when He was accused,
But kept His silence, as He was abused.
When He was reviled, He reviled not again,
It was as tho’ His heart smiled, thru’ all the pain.

He could have called down, angels to rescue,
But He thought only, of me and of you.
He bought our pardon, on Calvary’s cross,
As His life’s Blood flow’d, He did not count it loss.

He did not save Himself, but gave His life so free,
As a sweet smelling Sacrifice, for you and me.
He did not come down, but on the cross did stay,
He paid our penalty, God accepted His way.

Jesus gave His life, out of love so great,
He did not stop loving, never did hesitate.
He so loved all sinners, in this world so wide,
The Lamb of God went to the cross, and there He died.

Jesus could have done things much differently,
Angels could have removed, His agony.
Have you accepted what Jesus did for you?
Only by believing, can you have life anew.

THINGS THAT YOU SEE

Things that you see, as you look around,
All He has made, is simply profound!
The bright morning sun, high in the sky,
The moon and the stars, we can’t deny!

Majestic mountains, mighty and tall,
Deep canyons below, where all looks small!
Beautiful waters, that hold life too,
God’s Handiwork, is hard to construe!

Such stately trees; and so many kinds,
Flowers galore, it baffles the mind!
Our gardens with harvests bountiful,
Come only from God, so merciful!

Spring rains, and the precious warm sunlight,
Turn ev’rything fresh and green and bright!
In autumn, He kisses all with frost,
For such brilliant splendor, He adds no cost!

Cold winter winds, then to Earth do come,
Making us thankful, for our warm home!
Pretty snow and ice, each year He brings,
Just our God, could ever change these things!

Things that you see, as you look around,
Beautiful and bright, that they confound!
Our dear God, is wonderfully wise,
He made it all, the Earth, seas and skies!

In His Image, He made me and you,
Our God is wondrous, loving and true!
He also made Heav’n where we can live,
And His Son as Saviour, He did give!

Think About

Think about Christ Jesus, crucified,
‘Bout the “few” who Him, have not denied.
Think about God’s love, for you and me,
And ‘bout where you’ll spend eternity.

Think ‘bout the many, on Hell’s broad path,
Their unbelief brings God’s holy wrath.
So few, about eternity think.
That’s why so many, stand on Hell’s brink.

Think about life’s many diff’rent paths,
Then think about our God’s holy wrath.
Millions never think of Judgment Day,
They just keep trav’ling, down the wrong way.

Think about all the world’s wickedness,
Then think about God’s love and goodness.
There are just two roads in life today,
One leads to Heav’n, the other Hell’s way.

Think ‘bout where you’ll spend eternity,
Think ‘bout Hell’s eternal agony.
Then think ‘bout Heav’n’s eternal bliss,
What could ever be better than this?

God allows us freedom to decide,
It is our choice where we will reside.
But when our life on this Earth is thru,
There will be no more choices for you.

Think about these words that I have said,
My friend, Hell will be eternal dread.
This life on Earth is where we decide,
The eternal place where we’ll reside.

THINK OF

Think of the most severe pain you’ve had,
Do you remember, how you hurt so bad?
In Heav’n there’ll be no pain e’er again,
For all those who are, God’s dear children.

Think of the deepest sorrow you’ve known,
Do you remember how your heart did moan?
In Heav’n there’ll not any sorrow be,
For all God’s children, for eternity.

Think of all the sad times you did cry,
Remember when people hurt you and lied?
There’ll be no sad tears on Heav’n’s shore,
Happiness for God’s children is in store.

Think of the death of a dear lov’d one,
Remember loneliness with no place to run?
In Heav’n, death no longer will take its toll,
Ev’rything there is in God’s control.

No more death, sorrow, crying, or pain,
Will God’s children e’er encounter again.
For former things are all passed away,
In Heav’n we’ll have only blissful days.

Blessed are they who our Lord obey,
For these will see Heav’n’s glorious array.
These will enter the gates of the City,
For e’er to have peace and serenity.

You’ll feel His Presence, ev’n in your mistakes.

To the bottom of the sea, your sins are sent.

THIS HUMBLE CHILD

You, are as the largest elephant around,
I am as a bug, You could tramp into the ground.
I can offer You nothing, I’m nothing at all,
Yet when this humble child cries out, You answer my call.

Your awesome wisdom and strength, simply amaze me,
I’m simply a branch of the Vine, clinging to Thee.
My knowledge is meager, and as for pow’r, I’m weak,
But when this humble child falters, it’s You I seek.

You are as clean white linen, so pure and bright,
I’m as filthy rags, blacker that the blackest night.
None of my righteousnesses, could possibly please You,
This humble child must trust You, in all that I do.

You are holy and righteous, and always have been,
I’m evil from the day I was born, full of sin.
Desper’tly wicked, is my cold, stony heart,
This humble child needs help, from sin to depart.

You love us so Lord, as if Your love is on fire,
But with me, You are not always my first desire.
I know I should love You, with all my heart, soul and mind,
But this humble child blunders, as if I were blind.

Help me Lord, to be who You want me to be,
For I really do long, for life eternally.
Ceasing from sin is what I look forward to,
For this humble child, wants a Body like You.

Lord I look to the day, when I shall sin no more,
When I shall be with You, on Heav’n’s blissful shore.
I will then love You, with Your kind of love in that day,
Finally this humble child, will please You always.

For Christ Jesus, many have stood,

This little church, the Lord does bless,
With the joys of love and kindness.
O’er the years it has stood so tall,
As a ‘lighthouse,’ a beacon to all.

So many in its doors have come,
To them it is their spiritual home.
When trials or troubles do beset,
This little church helps them forget.

Many pastors did come and go,
With hopes many more will follow.
This little church holds high its head,
As it tries to go where Christ has led.

It welcomes all who come its way,
With love and friendship, ev’ry day.
Helpful hands are held out to you,
This little church is one of a “few.”

This little church has concern, ‘tis clear,
Members show love, true and sincere.
Encouraging, with heart-felt pray’r,
They give comfort because they care.

THIS MAN I CAN’T SEE

Why do I love Jesus, this Man I can’t see?
To the world, this is a great mystery.
But deep in my heart, stronger my love grows,
Gratitude and praise, from my lonely heart flows.

No, I can’t see this Man I love, with my eyes,
But my love for Him, I will never deny.
I trust Him completely, and honor Him so,
This is something unbelievers, cannot know.

Respect and awe, grow more profound each day,
I long so to know Him more, in ev’ry way.
This Man I can’t see, this Man Jesus, does shine,
My heart sees Him clearly, and He is mine.

I know that He lives, and that He cares for me,
This wondrous Man who once walked, in Galilee.
My faith grows stronger, more and more each hour,
This Man I can’t see, gives me amazing pow’r.

Just because I can’t see this Man, with my eyes,
Is not a reason, His Presence to deny.
He makes it so plain, of His great love for me,
This awesome Man, whom my heart clearly sees!

THIS NARROW ROAD . . . July 2008 Message

There’s a narrow gate, we must go thru’,
‘Tis our first step to life, pure and true.
As we pass thru’ the gate, a road we’ll see,
That road leads to life, eternally!

This small narrow road, leads to Heav’n’s gate,
To the Father’s Home, where He does await.
Passage is granted, just thru’ God’s Son,
Christ Jesus holds the key, the only one!

This narrow road at times, gets sheer and steep,
But Jesus will guide, and safely keep.
He’ll be with us, with each step we take,
He promis’d, He’ll not leave nor forsake!

This narrow road may get rough and bumpy,
But Jesus from our side, will not flee.
Troubles may come, but we must not doubt,
For Christ cheers us on, with His vict’ry shout!

This narrow road may dip, to canyons low,
But Jesus’ leadership, will clearly show.
He’s with us in all, ups and downs of life,
He helps us remove our doubts and strife!

This narrow, winding road, leads us Home,
And Jesus will never, leave us alone.
Onward it leads, to our mansion above,
Built by our Saviour, with such great love!

There is another road you can take,
But friend it would be, a big mistake!
That broad, easy road, leads only to Hell,
Where for eternity, you would dwell.

Are you today, on this narrow road?
Or are you headed for Hell’s abode?
That broad will lead you the wrong way,
Turn away, get passage, from Christ today!

THIS TATTERED OLD BOOK

This tattered old Book, is my Guide,
It teaches that I with Christ must abide!
It sheds Light, to brighten my way,
Never fails to help me, on any day!

This tattered old Book, is my true Friend,
I will read and heed it, to the end!
It will never, ever, lead me wrong,
And it gives me strength, to make me strong!

This tattered old Book, is my Sword,
Helps me be a soldier for my Lord!
It gives me faith I use as a Shield,
That to the devil’s wiles, I might not yield!

This tattered old Book; a Lighthouse to me,
Leads me from danger to victory!
Many pitfalls, in the storms of life,
Can be avoided, relieving strife!

This tattered old Book, helps me live,
For God does tell me, He will forgive!
He lovingly guides me to His Son,
Where wondrous blessings have just begun!

This tattered old Book, I must obey,
God does show me, I must live His way!
Christ Jesus I must never reject,
For only He, my soul does protect!

THIS UNGODLY WORLD

In this ungodly world, in which we live,
It is always take, take, take, never give.
The strong always lead, the weak follow,
And most will end up, in Hell below.

In this evil world, of covetousness,
Times are few and far between, when God does bless.
With sin so rampant, it brings on God’s wrath,
Yet few choose to follow, the narrow path.

Most today follow, the devil’s broad road,
But someday they think they’ll see, Heav’n’s abode.
According to the Bible, they are wrong,
They will instead, go with the devil’s throng.

Evil was the world, before the Flood came,
Wicked and immoral, they had no shame.
Noah warned them, o’er and o’er to repent,
They would not listen, so God the Flood sent.

Most today ne’er think, of eternity,
‘Tis a shame, it’s the vast majority.
Many really think, in Heav’n they will dwell,
But the Bible states, they shall go to Hell.

God clearly tells us, we must obey,
If we want to live, in Heaven one day.
If we don’t believe, we call God a Liar,
And He says we’ll go, to the Lake of Fire.

THORNS AND THISTLES

In the gorgeous garden, Adam sinned,
And I can just see, how Satan grinned!
Adam tried to hide, but by God was found,
God’s curse: thorns and thistles would infest the ground!

In with the wheat, tall thistles would now grow,
Adam’s sin would cause all mankind sorrow!
In with the barley, would grow cockle burrs,
God’s curse was on all, when Adam’s sin occurred!

Our sins truly cause us much pain each day,
We, like Adam, are bent to disobey.
Thorns and thistles are what the Lord will give,
If we don’t obey Him, each day we live!

God truly does want us to have His blessings,
It pleases Him, when He can give us good things.
But, O so often, we turn from the path,
And thorns and thistles, we’ll get from His wrath.

The Lord does love us, and very much so,
He wants our obedience, as thru’ life we go!
But when we disobey, as we walk this land,
Thorns and thistles, we can expect from His hand!

THOSE THREE DARK HOURS

When Jesus hung on that cross, without ev’n one friend,
Those three hours of darkness, I cannot comprehend!
‘Twas a private time, between the Father and Son,
When my sin debt was paid, and Christ’s battle was won!

There is NO way, I can comprehend Jesus’ love,
Coming to Earth to die, leaving Heaven above!
He left the comfort of Heav’n’s safety, to endure great agony,
For the likes of a nobody, like sinful me!

NO earthly mortal, this kind of love could possess,
We are filled way too much, with worldly wickedness.
We are blessed indeed, to access this kind of love,
In this evil, immoral world, of push and shove!

In those three hours of darkness, Christ took on my sins,
The devil was jubilant, he thought he would win!
But it was Christ Jesus, who had the victory,
In those three hours of darkness; that Godly mystery!

Jesus paid my full sin debt, in those dark three hours,
Ne’er did He doubt, fear, hesitate, waver or cower!
He tolerated all, that agony and pain,
Ne’er did He protest, object, grumble or complain.

The suffering that He endured, for you and for me,
Was love indescribable, that set our souls free!
Jesus’ love surpasses all, that we could ever know,
We’re privileged indeed, that on us His love does flow!

Have you e’er considered, those three hours of darkness?
When our precious Saviour, brought us such great success?
Have you thanked Him, for providing the only Way,
That we might access, Heav’n’s glorious beauty one day?

That this general darkness was totally supernatural is evident that it happened at the Passover, which was celebrated ONLY at the full moon, a time in which it was impossible for the sun to be eclipsed, natural eclipses happening only at the time of the new moon.

Thou art my Saviour, the only One,
Jesus is god’s only begotten Son!

Thou art my Shepherd, who leads the way,
Refreshing my soul, day after day!
Thou art my Guide, as in life I walk,
Giving me strength, when the devil stalks!

Thou art my Master, I humbly serve You,
Tho’ I’m unworthy, I’ll continue.
Thou art my Lord, I commit unto Thee,
I give You my all, so willingly!

Thou art my Friend, who is always near,
You comfort and encourage, when I fear!
Thou art my Brother, always close by,
Soon You will call, from the clouds in the sky!

Thou art my God, and I trust in You,
You cannot lie, You are always true!
With You I will spend eternity,
In the mansion, You have prepared for me!

THREE CROSSES . . . Mar.2008 Message

On Calvary’s hill, three horrid crosses stand,
Three men hang there, nail’d in their feet and hands.
The piercing of the nails, impels them to cry,
Three on crosses hang, silhouettes against the sky.

The ONE in the midst, spoke words brief and few,
“Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.”
Words from parched lips, from ONE who truly cares,
Interceding for His enemies, in this short prayer!

On either side of Christ, were two common thieves,
The one would soon obtain, an eternal reprieve.
“Remember me, O Lord,” repently he cries,
“Today thou shalt be with Me in Paradise.”

John stood with His mother, her comfort to seek,
This beloved disciple, then heard Jesus speak:
“Behold, thy mother; woman, behold thy son,”
These tender words from their greatly loved ONE.

As Christ hung dying in anguish, sad and alone,
This ONE with the purest heart, this world has e’er known.
A woeful utterance bursts forth; heart-felt agony,
“My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?”

“I thirst;” His thirst was almost more than He could bear,
But vinegar was all that was offered there.
But the breaking Heart, of the Saviour of man,
Would not retreat, from God’s redemption Plan!

“It is finished,” His Work on the Cross was done,
This humble Man, who was truly God’s own Son!
“Father, into Thy Hands,” our precious Saviour cries,
“I commend My Spirit;” and then so bravely dies!

But is He dead? Nay! Our Lord Jesus did arise!
O that we would shout it to the highest skies!
Nothing could hold Him, behind His tomb’s dark door,
He lives! He lives! And He will live for ever more!

Our Lord spoke seven memorable words from the cross: (1) Luke 23:34; (2) Luke 23:43; (3) John 19:26; (4) Matthew 27:46, Mark 15:34; (5) John 19:28; (6) John 19:30;
(7) Luke 23:46.
Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.
Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
John 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
John 19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
John 19:28-30 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. [29] Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. [30] When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
Crucifixion Scripture:
Mat. 27:27-54; Mk.15:22-34; Luke 23:32-46; John 19:14-42

Ps. 2:2; 41:9; ch.22 & 69;

THUS FAR

He’s brought me thus far, He’ll see me thru’,
As I struggle with life, each day anew.
He’s promis’d ne’er to leave, always be there,
Our wondrous Saviour, who truly cares.

Thus far He has led, by guiding me,
Around snares and quicksand, on my journey.
On my darkened path, He sheds His light,
Leading me onward, thru’ ev’ry plight.

On thru’ my life, He continues to lead,
As I willingly on, His wisdom feed.
He’s brought me thus far, I know He’ll stay,
As I keep trusting Him, day by day.

Tho’ the path ahead, gets rugged and steep,
My trustworthy Guide, will safely keep.
He’s brought me thus far, He’ll stay to the end,
Guiding me onward, is my loyal Friend.

Safely thus far, my Guide has brought me,
And I’ll trust Him for, the rest of my journey.
No one can lead me better, than this Great One,
Christ Jesus, my Saviour, God’s own Son.

The Lord Must be First

I must love the Lord, more than any one,
More than my parents, my daughter or son.
More than my spouse, who is so dear to me,
Jesus says He must be first, I agree.

The Lord must be first, o’er everything,
If we want the Father’s, greatest blessings.
If we place anything, higher than He,
The Bible states we’ll face, Hell’s agony.

We must love Christ, more than silver or gold,
If we don’t, God’s rich blessings He’ll with hold.
Jesus must be first, over precious stones,
If we want to see Heaven, on our own.

Jesus must be first, over pow’r and fame,
And we must always, honor His great Name.
We must never curse Him, in blasphemy,
We must instead, consider eternity.

The Lord must be first by all, everywhere,
If they want to be under, God’s great care.
If they e’er want to see, Heaven above,
They must put Christ first, with heart-felt love.

Where does the Lord stand, in your life this day?
Is He Number One? Or is He far away?
Is Jesus ever so near, to your heart?
Be wise my friend, stay close, never depart!

You are our Refuge, strength and victory,

In conflict, when we are press’d by the foe,
To our Refuge we run, in these times of woe.

But You are our Refuge, You do console!

We can withstand more suffering and distress,
For Thy Promise of Refuge, truly does bless!
In this sin-crazed world, we must always fight,
This Promise won’t fail; Christ will lead us right!

We can survive what a new day may bring,
For Your Promise of Refuge, allows us to sing!
Thru’ all persecutions, we can endure,
Loving Refuge is promised; and it is sure!

Let us pray for faith that will not subside,
For He promises refuge, if we abide.
Let us claim God’s Promise, in grief or pain,
Then we need not ever, grumble or complain!

THE WORLD OVERLOOKS THE GREATEST BLESSING

The world overlooks, the Greatest Treasure,
All they desire, is riches and pleasures.
Just of the ‘here and now’, do people think,
They don’t realize that they, are on death’s brink.

The Greatest Treasure, the world cannot see,
For they never think, of eternity.
Always too busy, to ev’n look His way,
They are too busy, rushing thru’ their day.

The world overlooks, what Jesus can do,
He and He alone to Heav’n, can take you.
But most people think, there are many ways,
And they just reject, what the Bible says!

When the world, the Greatest Treasure denies,
Satan rejoices, and false hopes applies.
People follow him, on that big broad road,
That lead to agony, in Hell’s abode.

The world speaks of Christ, just in blasphemy,
Cursing, vile jokes, friend, this should not be!
And they call those who love Him, Jesus’ freaks,
On Judgment Day, fear shall come, when Jesus speaks.

IF the world would just turn, to the Greatest Treasure,
He could give them comfort, peace and pleasure.
His grace is sufficient for us, always,
And He ne’er leaves, ne’er forsakes, all our days.

For the whole world, this Great Treasure is there.
Jesus is available, everywhere!
Be wise my friend, accept Jesus today,
For to get to Heav’n, there’s no other way!

THY PROMISES

On Thy Promises Lord, I do rest,
For I know You will give me Your best!
Thy Word Lord, You will never break,
Nor will Your children, You e’er forsake.

On Thy Promises Lord, do I stand,
For when I stumble, You take my hand!
Lord, help me to keep on trusting in Thee,
I’m helpless without You; hear my plea!

Thy Promises Lord, are as a shield,
That’s why to You, I humbly yield!
My worst enemy cannot prevail,
But without You Lord; I’d surely fail!

Thy Promises Lord, are a retreat,
A place of refuge, and rest complete,
In Your Word, I can safely abide,
There forever, I want to reside!

Thy Promises Lord, give me great peace,
Keeping me safe, till storms of life cease.
Then in Heav’n, there’s life eternally,
Your Promises give me great victory!

THY WILL BE DONE

Do you truly know, that God does care?
When you go to the Father in pray’r?
Can you pray in faith? “Thy will be done?”
Or do you doubt, before you’ve begun?

“Thy will be done, Lord,” is what we should ask,
No matter the problem, or the task!
If we allow God, to make the choice,
He’ll give us His best, then we can rejoice!

Do you have faith, to let God decide?
In all the trials of life that betide?
Can you truly state: “Thy will be done, Lord?”
Most cannot! for this to them is hard!

“Thy will be done,” can you honestly say?
We must do this, if we are to obey!
You simply must trust God, and believe!
Or His blessings, you will not receive!

Can you place your whole life, in God’s Hands?
Can you pray: “Thy will be done” and firmly stand?
Into your heart, mind and soul; let God fill,
With all His goodness, from His grand will!

THY WILL BE DONE

Thy will be done Lord, Thine and Thine alone,
I humbly ask, that today’s paths be shown.
Pride and worldly wisdom Lord, I do fear,
I pray Your loving presence, always be near.

Thy will be done Lord, always in all things,
This to me Lord, is an amazing blessing.
Don’t let me hurry, and do things ‘my’ way,
For I will truly regret it, some future day.

Thy will be done Lord, always in my life,
When my will takes hold, it always brings strife.
Lord, let me always let Your Spirit guide,
And let Your perfect will always be applied.

Thy will be done Lord, let me put my trust in Thee,
Write Your law on my heart, for eternity.
Humbly I ask, please teach me to do thy will,
And each day of my life, with Your Spirit fill.

Thy will be done Lord, for I’m one of the “few,”
Let my thoughts, words and deeds be pleasing to You.
Let me always imitate, Jesus my Lord,
Let me always live, by Your Holy, pure Word.

THY WILL BE DONE

Dear Lord, let me to Your will submit,
Let me not ever, quench Your Spirit.
Let me with all my heart, Your will seek,
Let Pride flee from me, let me be meek.

As I seek Your will, keep my faith strong,
Let me not ever doubt, for that is wrong.
Let my faith not waver, let me believe,
That guidance from You, I shall receive.

Thy will be done Lord, not ever mine,
Any glory there is, let it be Thine.
Let me allow You, to lead me each day,
As You shed Your great Light, on my way.

When I come to a mountain, ever so steep,
I know in my heart, my steps You will keep.
I must trust You Lord, but I must obey,
If I expect help, from You each new day.

Let me trust You always, let me not fear,
Let me feel Thy Presence, ever so near.
Let me seek Your will, in all that I do,
For to You dear Lord, I want to stay true.

Your wisdom Lord, not mine, will I trust,
Your will in my life, is simply a must.
My wisdom is ever so foolish to You,
I want Your will Lord, in all that I do.

THY WILL BE DONE, LORD

Thy will be done O Lord, never mine,
For I want Your Light, always to shine.
Things done my way, brings trouble to me,
For I have nothing, but misery.

Thy will be done O Lord, ev’ry day,
I ask Your guidance, in all my ways.
I must keep that narrow road in my sight,
Let me always walk, in Your glorious Light.

Thy will be done O Lord, this I ask,
For I want Your wisdom, in all my tasks.
Guide me with Your counsel so wise,
Don’t let me e’er Your wisdom despise.

Gracious Lord I pray, Thy will be done,
Let me walk willingly, with Your Son.
Tho’ the road may get rocky and steep,
I know my Saviour, will safely keep.

Thy will be done, let me shatter my pride,
I must be meek, if You are to abide.
Let me cast my pride, far, far away,
For just meek ones, will You lift up one day.

Thy will be done, let me never fear,
For You promise, to always be near.
All my fear, perfect love casts out,
When I trust You, gone is my doubt.

Thy will be done Lord, let it prevail,
I must glorify You, I must not fail.
To ask for Thy will, I’m not afraid.
For when trouble comes, You’re there to aid.

THY WILL, LORD

Thy will, Lord, not mine; tho’ dark it be,
For You shall lead, and light the path for me.
Tho’ rough and steep the path, I know ‘tis best,
For Heav’n awaits, when I top the crest!

Thy will, Lord; I would not choose, if I might,
For your way is better, and always right!
Tho’ I seek Heav’n, I ask You show the way,
For the choice I make, might lead my soul astray!

Thy will, Lord; my days with joy or sorrow fill,
For You shall always, your best to me instill!
Tho’ I may desire, just good, nice things,
I’ll trust your judgment, in what life brings!

Thy will, Lord, not mine, in sickness and health,
For You rightly lead, in poverty and wealth!
Tho’ in great or small things I choose,
I could be wrong; but with You, I’ll not lose!

Thy will, Lord, not mine; always let me trust,
For to win your favor, faith is a must!
The path may be dark now, but the end bright,
For your will Lord, leads to Heav’n’s light!

TO EARTH, GOD CAME

Born of a virgin, to Earth He came,
Own Son of God, Jesus is His Name.
Suff’ring on the cross, pain and agony,
To remove God’s wrath, from you and me.

He died on that cross, yet our Lord lives!
In His love and mercy, He forgives.
When we turn to Christ, our lives do change,
Motives and attitudes, He’ll rearrange,

To be God’s child, believe on Christ’s Name,
With God as your Father, ‘tis such great gain.
All sins of the past, are cast aside,
And the Holy Spirit, will reside.

We are granted, Jesus’ righteousness,
It replaces, all our wickedness.
We are no longer, God’s enemy,
We’re now His child, for eternity.

He willingly left, the glory of Heav’n,
To accept the task, His Father had giv’n.
To Earth He came, tho’ He knew He’d die,
On our Saviour, God’s Son, let us rely.

The heav’ns above declare God’s glory,
He can dash to pieces, His enemies.

So great is the glory of the Lord,
Let us be thankful, with praising words.
The Lord is high above all nations,
Give Him glory for our salvation.

Forever, God’s glory shall endure,
Let us rejoice, in His works so pure.
Of His glorious Kingdom, should we speak,
Lord, let us always Your glory seek.

Profound is the glory of the Lord,
His awesome Presence must be adored.
His glory is above all the earth,
Knowledge of Him, is of much worth.

Speak of His glorious majesty,
That will last for all eternity.
Tell of His wondrous works, with no end,
This awesome, Holy One, can be your Friend.

As many waters cover the seas,
The whole earth is full of His glory.
Holy, holy, is the Lord of Hosts,
Tell of His glory, from coast to coast.

TO WHOM WILL YOU TURN?

To whom will you turn, when pain arrives?
As you struggle helplessly, to survive.
With Christ to strengthen, we can do all things,
We must turn to Christ, for divine blessings.

To whom will you turn, when you’re facing hate?
As you struggle inwardly, questioning your fate.
We must know Jesus loves us, ev’ry day,
We must turn to Him, He will show the right way.

To whom will you turn, when people persecute?
As you struggle desperat’ly, to stay mute.
We must know our reward, will be so great,
We must turn to Christ, before it’s too late.

To whom will you turn, when your sin takes hold?
As you struggle, to return to the fold.
If we confess our sin, He will forgive,
We must turn to Christ, in this life we live.

To whom will you turn, when Satan tempts you?
As you struggle wearily, to stay true.
We must turn to Christ, He went thru’ it all,
Without His awesome strength, we’ll surely fall.

To whom will you turn, at the long day’s end?
Turn to the One, who is your dearest Friend.
Turn to the One who holds, Heav’ns’ only key,
Turn to Jesus, who is King of eternity!

TOO MUCH TO COMPREHEND . . . September 2009 Monthly Message

Lord, You are too much for me to comprehend,
How can You call a sinner like me, “friend”?
My horrible sins, You remembered no more,
When I repented, and opened my heart’s door.

I can’t comprehend, how I can be Your child,
You are so magnificent, and undefiled.
Yet I can come to You, be it day or night,
No matter my dilemma, or my plight.

You could snuff out my life, with Your awesome pow’r,
For You know where I am, each and ev’ry hour.
I just can’t comprehend, how You could love me,
Yet You’ve given to me, life eternally.

You know my thoughts, before they come to my mind,
And Your thoughts for me, are warm, loving and kind.
Most gracious Lord, You are hard to understand,
For when I stumble, You reach out for my hand.

You know my words, ‘fore I think of what to say,
And Your Presence is with me, all night and day,
You’re just too marvelous, to e’er comprehend,
I am ever so grateful, that You call me friend.

Before You made the world, You loved and chose me,
I’m accepted in Christ, for eternity.
A wondrous mansion awaits me, way up there,
For my Creator God, does love me and care.

I love You dear Lord, because You first loved me,
You changed me Lord, gave me new identity.
I could never ever, comprehend You Lord,
You love passes all knowledge, as told in Your Word.

TOWER OF BABEL

Nimrod’s kingdom, with Babel began,
As they journeyed east throughout the land.
When they came to Shinar, they dwelt there,
Tho’ they were live every where.

They would make brick, they jointly agreed,
On each other’s pride, they did feed.
They’d build a city and tower high,
That would reach Heav’n, high in the sky.

They started that tower, on Shinar’s plain,
Reaching Heav’n, was what they hoped to gain.
They were not content with what God gave,
Pride and power, their egos did crave.

Joined together, they all did work,
Not e’vn one, their duties did shirk.
They were completely wrapped up in pride,
‘Twas the glory they craved, that did divide.

There was just one language in all the land,
But this did change, by the Lord God’s Hand!
Mass confusion, is what took place,
For they refused, God’s amazing grace!

The Lord scatter’d them so far and wide,
Their work went undone, because of pride.
Sin will not by God, unnoticed go,
His sovereignty, He will always show.

Let all this to us, a lesson be,
We don’t want to be, God’s enemy!
Let’s cast away pride, and Him obey,
Heav’n can be accessed, only God’s way!

“Transfer” . . . June 2012 Monthly Message

My horrible wicked sins, He takes away,
The Father then sends, Christ’s righteousness my way.
God forgives my sins, Christ gives me victory,
He shed His precious Blood, on the cross for me.

When we believe in Christ Jesus, we “overcome,”
Our faith will lead us, to our eternal Home.
When we believe God, and Christ Jesus receive,
Never ending life in Heaven, we achieve.

Transferring my sins, for Jesus’ righteousness,
‘Tis beyond my wildest dreams, I must confess.
Christ’s love for us, I simply can’t comprehend,
And no one, any where, is a better Friend!

We have an awesome Saviour, who loves us so,
Only Jesus can save us, from Hell below.
When we trade eternal death, for eternal life,
Jesus takes away, all our worry and strife.

My abominable sins, God takes away,
Then He sends the righteousness of Christ, my way.
When He forgives my sins, He does justify,
On my precious, beloved Saviour, I can rely.

Has Jesus transferred your sins, to righteousness?
Have you accepted Christ, so the Father will bless?
This “transfer” occurs, when you trust and believe,
Believe God, accept Christ; and this “transfer” receive!

TRANSITION TIME

Life on Earth is a time of transition,
We must take this into consideration’
This time is given for us to decide,
Where, in eternity, we will abide.

This is a topic most tend to neglect,
And only on today, do they reflect.
I ask that you consider, seriously,
Just where will you live for eternity?

Belief in Jesus, will place you in Heav’n,
Reject Him, my friend, and Hell will be giv’n.
Believe on Jesus; God will not condemn,
Instead, you will be, one of God’s children.

Transition from Earth, to another place,
I ask you this day, will you see His Face?
He’s not willing that any should perish,
But, His Son, you must accept, and cherish!

Your soul lives forever; the Bible tells,
In Heaven, or Hell; which place will you dwell?
Heaven is where our wondrous God abides,
Hell is where Satan’s children reside.

Transition time: have you thought about it?
Where will God send your immortal spirit?
For those who believe, blissful Heav’n awaits,
But those who reject Christ will be shown Hell’s gate.

TREADMILL

Some things in life have a treadmill effect,
And life without God is a dismal prospect.
Generations come, and generations go,
Each one will have their trials and sorrow.

The sun rises and sets, day after day,
Year after year, it happens the same way.
The wind blows and swirls repeatedly,
Following its course continuously.

Rivers flow to the sea; but they do not fill,
Yet year after year they keep flowing still.
People live out their lives, and then they die,
And most of them on Christ, do not rely.

People without God, are truly without hope,
As in this life, on their own they grope.
What a gloomy prospect that does await,
As they speed hopelessly, to Hell’s broad gate.

Those who trust Christ, are on a journey to Heav’n,
For eternal life, by God, to them was giv’n.
Are you on a treadmill, going no where?
Or are you on a journey, with Christ who cares?

TREASURES . . . July 2005 Messages

Just where are your treasures today?
Here on Earth? or headed Heav’n’s way?
Where your treasure is, your heart will be,
We must truly consider, eternity.

We must consider spiritual treasure,
Not always our physical pleasure.
Knowledge of the Lord, is a wise thing,
It can make you, a child of the King.

Purity, honor and righteousness,
Are favored by God, and He will bless.
Heirs of Almighty God, we can be,
Build on the Rock, and have victory.

We must count all things loss, ‘cept the Lord,
We must put Him first, He must be ador’d.
Everything else must be set aside,
In our dear Saviour, we must abide.

We must ponder the riches of His grace,
If we want to see, His splendid Face.
What do you consider treasure this day?
Worldly things, or Heav’n’s blissful array?

God’s children are with Jesus, joint heirs,
Nothing on Earth, with this can compare.
The fear of the Lord shall be my treasure,
Day after day, He is my Pleasure.

In Christ are hid all treasures indeed,
We need only the Gospel to heed.
Christ should be valued highly by you,
He alone should be our treasure true.

TREASURES

All treasures on Earth, will be meaningless,
In eternity, they’ll bring no happiness.
Pride and arrogance, God shall debase,
When you stand before, the Great Judge’s Face.

All your lovely treasures, and luxuries,
At your earthly demise, from you shall flee.
At death, your soul shall continue to live,
In one of two places, that God shall give.

The treasures on Earth, you have piled up high,
Not ev’n on one of them, can you rely.
The more you have, the more you desire,
It’s a sickness, things you must acquire.

The fear of the Lord, should be our treasure,
Study of His Word, should be our pleasure.
Wisdom and knowledge, are hid in Him,
Worldly knowledge compared, is so dim.

If we stockpile possessions and wealth,
‘Tis detrimental, to spiritual health.
At death, another shall take control,
Just spiritual wealth, goes with our soul.

We should lay up treasures in Heav’n above,
If we expect to receive, the Lord’s gracious love.
Where our treasure is, there will our heart be,
Living for Christ, gives life eternally.

It comes in the form, of God’s own Son!

When troubles plague you, and faith seems to cease,
Your trust in the Lord, you can increase.
Take all your troubles, to God in pray’r,
Take your troubles to Him, and leave them there!

When troubles in life, over run you,
When you’ve not a hint, what you should do.
Assistance can come from deep inside,
Trust in the Saviour, in Him abide.

When troubles abound and pain runs wild,
You will suffer, ev’n tho’ you’re God’s child.
The Lord is watching, you’re in plain sight,
His Presence is with you, day and night!

When multiple troubles, surround you,
When your friends and fam’ly, are untrue.
Jesus loves you, He’ll come to your aid,
He’ll never forsake, don’t be afraid!

When troubles and doubts, over run,
Your faith can be increased, by God’s own Son.
Stand firm in your trust, of Christ who cares,
Take all your troubles, to Him in pray’r!

When troubles come, comfort can abound,
Peace and joy in Jesus, can be found.
Burdens will be lighter, when you trust Him,
Jesus’ precious light, makes troubles dim!

Troubles

Sometimes troubles come from all directions,
That’s when we should recall, God’s perfection!
He’ll never give us more that we can bear,
He’ll bless with comfort, because He cares.

We all will have troubles, that come our way,
But to His children, great love God displays.
Sufficient grace He gives, abundantly,
With Christ on our side, we’ll have victory.

Tho’ the Lord our troubles, won’t take away,
He will walk with us thru’ them, all the way.
He will encourage us, if we walk with Him,
Things will look brighter, as troubles grow dim.

Did you e’er think, Christ may be testing you?
Run from Him? or to Him? what will you do?
Satan will all your weaknesses explore,
Don’t let the devil get his foot in the door.

No matter what happens, Christ will be there,
He truly does love us, truly does care.
His awesome Presence, is always so near,
He’ll not leave or forsake us, have no fear.

Did you thank Him today, for standing by you?
Do you appreciate His love so true?
What does He mean to you? tell Him this day,
Thank Him for all blessings He brings your way.

TROUBLES

When troubles are too much, for you to bear,
He waits patiently, your burden to share.
Trust Jesus, is what we must learn to do,
Faith in Him, carries His Promises thru'.

We don't have to worry, or be afraid,
Jesus is there, to comfort and give aid.
Jesus is our best Friend, and always there,
There in the blink of an eye, go in pray'r.

Troubles can bring heartbreak, and great distress,
But when you have faith in Christ, God will bless.
Heartbreak can come, when a dear loved one goes on,
It's then there can be comfort, from God's Son.

Financial troubles come, to one and all,
Go to Jesus in pray'r, before you fall.
Worry will not ever, help you one bit,
The best advice comes from the Bible, quit!

Persecution can come, from all around,
There is nowhere on Earth, it can't be found.
It comes from friends, neighbors and family,
When it comes, be exceeding glad, with great joy.

Wicked, horrible violence, is world wide,
To stay away from it, you must decide.
Our Lord Jesus, wants us to think of peace,
We should always pray, violence will cease.

So many troubles, we have in this life,
'Tis truly wise to pray, when you have strife.
God waits so patiently, to hear form you,
He'll give pow'r and wisdom, to see you thru'.

TROUBLES AND TRIALS . . . January 2015 Message

When troubles that besiege, come into play,
Dear Lord, give me strength, to accept Your way.
When I feel as if, flood waters o’er flow,
Your encouraging love, I want to know.

You do allow trials, to come to me,
The choice I make, is what You want to see.
When troubles come, there’s a choice to make,
I can run fast to You, or You forsake.

We all have a free will, that You did give,
We all use this gift, as our life we live.
But so many times, I choose the wrong path,
And my error at times, can bring on Your wrath.

When You allow pain, to You I must run,
It’s a bad decision, when You I shun.
You ne’er promise, to take all pain away,
But feeling Your Presence, can make my day.

Pain and suffering, and troubles of all kind,
But thru’ these all, I can have peace of mind.
Sufficient Lord, is Your amazing grace,
It sees me thru’ all, as I run my race.

Lord, You do NOT ev’ry malady heal,
It matters not, when Your Presence I feel.
Your strength is made perfect, when I am weak,
The pow’r of Christ, is what I should seek.

I should take pleasure in infirmities,
For this must be for me, a necessity.
You make me strong Lord, when I am weak,
Give me wisdom, Your gracious pow’r to seek.

TROUBLES WILL COME . . . January 2016 Message

Over and over, troubles arise,
The secret to this, is look to the skies.
Our help cometh each time from the Lord,
There is great comfort, from His Holy Word.

Satan is all smiles, when you worry,
Submit to God, and the devil will flee.
Temptations come, the Lord does permit,
But strength to endure, comes from His Spirit.

As an angel of light, Satan appears,
But the Holy Spirit is always near.
Over and over, He comes to our aid,
His Presence abides, so don’t be afraid.

Much greater is He who is in you,
Than the world’s devil, so untrue.
When we trust the Spirit, and don’t quench His pow’r,
He’ll help in a heart-beat, at any hour.

With each temptation, trouble and woe,
Great comfort and strength, o’er comes our sorrow.
Fellowship with Christ must be secure,
If troubles in life, we are to endure.

When into your life, doubt starts to creep,
Be sure that Jesus, will safely keep.
Doubt will always eat your faith away,
Don’t give in to Satan, on any day.

Between you and Christ, Satan tries to step in,
Gently he will urge you, into sin.
Take hold of His Hand, as Christ you follow,
He truly will help you, in your sorrow.

Friends are blessings, from God above,

Friends are something money can’t buy,
No matter your wealth, don’t even try.

When you need them, true friends are there,
Others abandon, true friends care.
True friends care what happens to you,
With love and compassion, thru’ and thru’.

Friends will share your hurts and sorrows,
There for you, both now and tomorrow.
Sharing your joy with love sincere,
‘Tis a blessing to have true friends near.

True friends won’t turn their back on you,
They understand; such a virtue.
Friends are there to help in your need,
Sent by God, in love, on wings of speed.

TRUE LOVE

Many waters cannot quench true love,
Love is a wonder, just from above.
Neither can treacherous floods drown it,
True love is there for you, ev’ry minute.

True love is so strong; even as death,
There with us always, ‘till our last breath.
Love the Lord, He’ll preserve all who stand fast,
With His true love, that will always last.

Love His salvation; magnify Him,
Seek Him and rejoice; life won’t be dim!
God is good; ready to love and forgive,
Love Him; hate evil, as you do live.

Love God with true love that will not fail,
For His great love, will always avail.
How much better is His love than wine,
It passes all knowledge; it is so fine!

What a wondrous, loving God above,
Willing to spread on us, His true love.
True love; His One Son, to us He gave,
That thru’ Christ, we have vict’ry o’er the grave.

TRUE LOVE

True love will not disappoint, ever,
It flows calmly, like a gentle river!
True love will not grieve, nor make you cry,
It soars like an eagle, in the blue sky!

True love wishes only the best for you,
It tries from all wickedness, to rescue.
True love helps, in ev’ry circumstance,
It knows when you’re sad, at the briefest glance!

True love gives great peace, down in your heart,
It urges you, from stress to depart.
True love, to wondrous joy, gives access,
‘Tis an awesome ‘gift’ that continues to bless!

True love forgives us, when we do wrong,
Helping us to forgive, making us strong!
True love always seems to make things right,
Whether it’s deep darkness, or broad daylight!

The love of God is good, and kind and true,
With mercy to astound, both me and you!
God sent His Son, that we might have a ‘Way,’
To live in Heaven, with Him some day!

The true love of Jesus, Saviour and Lord,
Is something that anyone can well afford!
True love Jesus showed, when He paid the price,
Death on the Cross, a supreme Sacrifice!

No one can show true love more than He,
Great compassion Christ shows, to you and me!
This true love of Jesus, you can access,
Ask Christ into your heart, and God will bless.

THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS

Joseph and Mary were nobodies in that day,
Peasants from a nothing town, pretty far away.
Slowly, they made their way, to tiny Bethlehem,
God was setting the scene, and His plan included them!

The baby Mary carried, was not a Caesar fraud,
Not a mortal ruler, who would claim to be God.
But a far greater wonder; God became a man,
What a wondrous event; and so hard to understand!

When they came to the inn; ‘twas no room to be had,
Just a crude stable, but they did not think it bad!
In this humiliation; the Son of God was born,
Not a prince or king; but a pauper forlorn!

We must ne’er forget; this is where it all began,
Christ comes to all those in need; this being God’s plan.
He is born in the hearts of those poor in spirit,
Another wondrous event; God and man are knit!

God’s angel told the shepherds, of this special birth,
Shepherds were a lowly group; and not of much worth.
The angel said the “Good News” was for all people,
Christ was born to save us, and make our lives more full.

Christmas is not enough, just about His birth to hear,
We must think about the Christ, in much Godly fear!
It’s not enough to look at all the manger scenes,
Then go about your business, like you’d not even seen!

Christmas may make you feel good; you love all those bells,
But unless Christ is “BORN IN YOU”; all roads lead to Hell!
He came into this world, for just one special aim,
That He be born in you, and for your soul to claim!

My husband and I no longer celebrate "Christmas" as we once did.
We now consider it a pagan holiday and want no part of it. If it
were a "Godly" holiday, a day where people praised and honored and glorified CHRIST . . . WHY would SO many heathens celebrate it? We think Christ should be honored EVERY day, NOT just one day of the year. Christ was NOT born in December! See our article: http://www.hisservants.org/christmas_h_s.htm

TRUE WORSHIP

Worship must come from deep down inside,
Where the Holy Spirit, does abide.
Sincere, earnest, from the heart and soul,
Spirit and truth, takes complete control.

Father, I’m a sinner, you must begin,
You truly must mourn, for all your sin.
You must repent, go the other way,
Beware, don’t return the v’ry next day.

In spirit and truth, we must worship,
It must come from within, not just our lip.
Sacraments, vain pray’r, He’ll not accept,
Outward worship, He’ll always reject.

We must humble ourselves, in God’s sight,
Our inner man, must want to do right.
If you’re God’s child, it must mean much to you,
Be grateful to Him, in all that you do.

God does not want, rituals and ceremonies,
Nor million dollar buildings, or finery.
Worship of statues must not take place,
If we want to see our Lord Jesus’ Face.

God is Spirit, we must not bow to something seen,
His awesome, unseen Presence we must esteem.
We must tremble before His majesty,
If we want to be with God, eternally.

TRUSTING GOD

All those who on our God rely,
Will join Him in Heaven, by and by,
Blest is he that makes the Lord his trust,
Almighty God states: faith is a must.

Some folk insist they can work their way,
On up to Heav’n where it’s always day!
There is only ONE work, you can present,
“That you believe on Him, whom He hath sent.”

Church for others, is the way to go,
Baptism, rituals; all a big show.
You must belong to THIS church, they say,
Friend, church CAN’T save you, on any day!

You must rely on Almighty God,
Trust Him completely, as Earth you trod.
Believe His Words; He has NEVER lied,
He gave us His Son, who for us, died.

God made a Plan to save us from Hell,
IF you accept it; in Heav’n you’ll dwell.
THE Plan He provided, is His Son,
Believe on Christ; your life’s just begun.

We cannot please our God, without faith,
We must believe and trust, ‘till our last breath.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart,
Trust Him always, and never depart.

Trusting God

As protective as a she-bear,
Is our majestic God who cares.
He is my Rock, He will deliver me!
So shall I be saved, from my enemies.

‘Neath the shadow of His wings, He does keep,
When we turn to Christ, comfort we reap.
As a mother bird, her young she protects,
God’s help is there, if Christ we accept.

As a canine friend, with great loyalty,
Is our grand God, of eternity.
His faithfulness will never fail,
His lovingkindness, always prevails.

As a true friend, who is there always,
Our great God is with us, all our days.
O’er flowing rivers, cannot touch me,
He has promised: “I will be with thee.”

Ev’n in old age, when our hair is white,
Our God will carry us with His might.
He will never leave us comfortless,
Through Christ He’ll encourage, also bless.

Trouble may come, but You never leave,

‘Tis plain, I could have avoided most tears.
If I had learned sooner, to trust You,
Life would have taken on a diff’rent view.

Trusting You, is the only way to go,
It can prevent so many sorrows.
Worry and stress could have disappeared,
So many things, I need not have feared.

Trusting You, brings great blessings each day,
You give me answers, and guide my way.
You ease burdens; help carry my load,
And You shed light, on my bumpy road.

Trusting You, gives such awesome peace,
And from sin’s tight chains, I find release.
Special love from You I truly feel,
For my broken heart, You always heal.

Trusting you, gives me amazing grace,
Always sufficient in troubles I face.
You show to me, such tender mercy,
Great compassion, on a sinner like me.

Trusting you, put me on the narrow path,
And You keep me from the Father’s wrath.
Trusting You Jesus, sends me Heav’n bound,
What glorious blessings in You I’ve found.

Trusting You, gives me a mansion above,
Reserved for me, by Your wondrous love.
Where I will have life eternally,
Just by trusting You, You do this for me.

The TRUTH

The Truth is simply absolute,
Truth is faultless, we cannot refute.
Nothing we do, can change its course,
Truth surges on, with driving force.

We may not like what Truth does say,
But we can’t change it, any day.
‘Tis our loss if we don’t believe,
We must accept it, to achieve.

Rejecting Truth, won’t make us ‘right’,
The Truth won’t change, in any light.
The Truth is perfect, pure and just,
There’s no other way, it is a must.

The Truth does so plainly state,
Jesus holds the ‘key’ to Heav’n’s gate.
You can say it’s a lie, but that’s not so,
To reject Truth, means Hell below.

You can turn away, but Truth is true,
Refusing to believe, hurts only you.
The Truth of God we must receive,
Heaven waits, for those who believe.

God absolutely cannot lie,
On His great Truth, you must rely.
Believe His truth, there’s no other way,
To abide in Heaven, one sweet day.

His Truth is true, believe God’s Word,
And access Heav’n, by Christ our Lord.
Hell is a place you don’t want to go,
Truth keeps you from eternal sorrow.

TUMBLEWEEDS

Like tumbleweeds, rolling restlessly,
Are those without Christ, living carelessly.
Eternity never enters their mind,
With things of the world, they are entwin’d.

Like tumbleweeds, by the wind wildly blown,
Are those who refuse, to let Christ be known.
They never think of the horrors of Hell,
They never think, that it’s there they shall dwell.

Like tumbleweeds, rolling non stop along,
Are those choosing the broad road, which is wrong.
They live and lust just for worldly pleasure,
Never thinking about heav’n’ly treasure.

Like tumbleweeds, that are burn’d in a fire,
Are those who have an endless, sinful desire.
They too shall end up in great fires . . . of Hell,
And there for eternity, they shall dwell.

You need not be like a vain tumbleweed,
Turn to the Lord this day, and His Word heed.
He’ll change you my friend, and give you Heav’n’s key,
And there you shall live for eternity.

With rugged mountains, and canyons deep.
Many others travel roads like this,
Turn to Jesus, He’ll not guide amiss.

Heartache and sorrow plague the young and old,
And we are timid, when we should be bold.
To test our faith, God does allow grief,
Turn to Jesus, for He’ll bring relief.

Each hurt we bear, is a stepping stone,
But we don’t have to walk life’s path alone.
When you feel weary, when you feel weak,
Turn to Jesus, as His strength you seek.

As we journey on to Heav’n’s domain,
Our faith in Christ Jesus must remain.
The light of the Lord, brightens our day.
Turn to Jesus, He’ll show the right way.

We all must go thru’ heartache and strife,
Pain and sorrow are just a part of life.
Sometimes we’ll be happy, sometimes sad,
Turn to Jesus, you’ll have more good than bad.

TWO FAMILIES

There are just two families in the world, Eph.2:2; 1 John 3:10
God’s Word, this fact, plainly unfurl’d. Tit.3:7
Belief in God makes us God’s children, Jn.1:12-13; 3:3,15-18
And with this privilege, comes great gain. Phil.2:15

In all God’s children, His Spirit abides, Rom.8:9,14,17
And He, in us, forever does reside. John 14:16; 2 John 2
He’s there to guide, comfort, teach and aid, 1 John 2:27
Always there for us, when we’re afraid! John 14:17-18; Mat.28:20

When we’re born into God’s family, John 3:1-8
It’s done, thru’ Jesus’ identity! John 1:12-13
We’re “sons of God” thru’ God’s wondrous love, 1 John 3:1
And we’ll live with Him, in Heav’n above. John 14:2-3, 6

Another family this does leave, Col.3:6
Those who reject, and will not believe! John 3:18,36; 8:24; 2 Thes. 2:12
They are dead in trespasses and sins, Ep.2:1-3; 5:1-7
Satan their hearts, continues to win. John 8:44-45; 1 John 3:10

Two fam’lies, and two destinations, Col.3:1-17; Gal.5:14;23
One, headed for Heav’n, one for perdition. Mat.13:30,49; 25:32, 46

TWO GROUPS OF PEOPLE

There are two groups of people today,
Just as always, from time far away.
There are those who love and fear the Lord,
And those who run from God, and Him discard.

“The children of God are manifest,”
Trusting Him always, and finding rest.
The children of Satan, too, are clear,
Those who hate; and want God no where near.

God’s children seek to do good and right,
Striving to do God’s will, day or night.
Satan’s children seek wrong, and darkness,
Loving all evil and wickedness.

A child of God has love for others,
Compassion and mercy for another.
A child of Satan loves only self,
Could care less if someone could use help.

“If the righteous scarcely be saved,”
These Words on our hearts should be engraved.
Where shall the ungodly sinner appear?
Why can’t they see, our God they should fear?

Satan’s children are God’s enemies,
They should consider eternity!
God’s children are granted life in Heav’n,
But to Satan’s children; Hell is giv’n.

You MUST believe God; all that He says,
Or you’ll be sorry, one of these days.
God made JUST ONE PLAN to save your soul,
Accept His Son; He gave Christ control!

TWO MASTERS

Two masters are in the world today,
And each person, just one can obey.
You have a choice; and no one will shove,
Do you want Hell? or Heaven above?

One ‘Master’ is Christ, the Son of God,
The other is Satan; a complete fraud!
Jesus will save you, and make you free,
With Satan, it’s Hell, for eternity!

Christ is the ‘Master’ of God’s children,
Loving, pure and just; always has been.
Satan will blind your heart and your eyes,
Tempting, lying, and Christ he defies!

Following Satan will put you in Hell,
Made for the devil; and with him you’ll dwell.
If you follow Christ, you’ll live with Him,
In wondrous Heav’n, where it’s never dim.

Which of these ‘Masters’ is yours this day?
One or the other; it’s the only way!
I pray you choose the Lord of Creation,
Just He can give eternal salvation!

TWO ROADS TO ETERNITY

There are two roads to eternity,
We are free to choose --- both you and me!
We’re given this time in life, to decide,
Just where in eternity, we will abide!

Wide is the gate, and broad is the way,
Trav’ling is easy, both night and day.!
This road to Hell is smooth and carefree,
But, it leads to eternal agony!

All who reject Christ, travel this path,
Their willful unbelief, kindles God’s wrath.
To the Lake of Fire, all these shall go,
For the broad road leads to Hell below!

There is another road we can choose,
With this decision, we cannot lose!
Strait is the gate, and narrow this way,
And this road leads to Heav’n’s array!

This narrow road at times, gets rough and steep,
But everlasting Arms, will hold and keep!
His amazing love will always guide,
Soothing our trails, as onward we stride!

As we on this narrow road do stay,
Things seem to go better ev’ry day!
He’ll ne’er give us more, than we can bear,
And in troubling times, He’s always there!

The broad OR narrow road; God lets you choose,
The narrow road, you win; the broad, you lose!
You’re at the junction, you must decide,
Where in eternity, you will abide!
