Sin and Judgment
A CRITICAL JUNCTION
There’s an important junction, most pass by,
A junction the Bible, does specify.
The majority stay on, the broad road,
And shall end up, in the devil’s abode.
At this junction, there is a small, lone path,
And all those who take it, escape God’s wrath.
Just a “few” walk it, God’s Word tells us clear,
But they walk with Jesus, always so near.
Those who walk the broad road, keep on in sin,
They listen to Satan, they cannot win.
They walk with the devil, and not our Lord,
There’s no desire to know, what’s in God’s Word.
Fools these are, who think not of eternity,
They must never consider, Hell’s agony.
Only the wise, believe God’s Word so true,
I wonder, does this small group, include you?
Each person at this junction, will one day stand,
The decision you make, lies in your hand.
There are just two roads, to eternity,
One to Heav’n’s bliss, one to Hell’s misery.
Are you at this critical junction, this day?
Will you go with Christ, or be Satan’s prey?
This most important choice, lies in your hand,
The wide road to Hell, the small one to Heav’n Land!

Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (KJV)
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)
Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: (KJV)

A MOMENT AFTER YOU DIE
All those that you love will so weep when you go,
Your dear ones will sure miss you, and rightly so.
The teary faces that mourn, you will not see,
A moment after you die, where will you be?
All the voices around simply won't reach you,
And the grief that they bear, you will not construe.
You have a soul, do you know where it will go
A moment after you die, Heav'n OR below ?
In your life, earthly treasures did you reap?
Not looking ahead when your body would sleep?
Consider eternity, looming ahead,
It will be too late when your body is dead!
You shall reap what you sow, there's no turning back,
Did you choose your goal, are you on the right track ?
There's two places; Hell below, Heav'n in the sky,
Where will you be, a moment after you die ?
Did you ever feel a sharp tug at your heart ?
Yet stifle that feeling,and from it depart ?
O,this is God, simply trying to reach you,
A moment after you die, He won't rescue.
Eternity is l-o-n-g, consider this fact,
I really pray that you, Heaven will attract.
But if you don't listen to God's Holy Word,
A moment after you die, Heav'n is barred.
Don't let Christ pass you by; He can save your soul,
Just trust and accept Him, He will take control.
And you won't have to worry ever again,
For the moment you die, with Him you'll remain!

ALL LOST SOULS
I dread the destiny of lost souls,
All whose names are not on Heaven’s roll.
They’ll ALL stand before the ‘Great White Throne’,
For they did not accept God’s ‘Way’ to atone.
Payday will come, for one and for all,
For they refused Christ when He did call.
God’s ‘Books’ will be opened on that ‘Day’,
Not one will be able to run away!
Your turn will come; you can count on it!
And the ‘Righteous Judge’ will not acquit.
He will judge all your sin righteously,
You’re condemned to Hell, for eternity.
The ‘Righteous Judge’, our Saviour and Lord,
Will ask why you turned from His Word.
The greatest sin of ALL these ones,
Is unbelief, and rejecting God’s Son.
I hate to think of the ‘Judgment Day’,
And all lost souls who would not obey.
Ev’ry one of them is doomed to Hell,
In agony and remorse, they will dwell.
O’, please dear friend, as you read these words,
I pray you have trusted Christ as Lord.
He’s the ONLY ‘ONE’ who can save you,
Believe and accept; He will rescue!

AM I WORTHY??
Am I not as good, as the one next to me?
Am I not worthy, of life eternally?
Does not the good, far outweigh the bad I do?
Would God send me to Hell? could this be true?
People have many questions, of ev’ry kind,
Questions that provoke, the thoughts of their mind.
God is love they say, He’s not a God of wrath,
So they keep right on, that big, broad, worldly path.
Most folks don’t consider, what God has to say,
They think they know best, as they hurry on their way.
By grace are ye saved thru’ faith, ‘tis a gift of God,
Not by works we do, for that would make us proud.
We must ne’er judge ourselves, with another,
For God alone judges us, with Christ our Brother!
There is NO salvation, in any other name,
Without belief in Christ, your sin is dreadful shame.
The wages of our sin, is eternal Hell,
Without Christ, that horrid place, is where you shall dwell.
Just belief in Christ, gives eternal life in Heav’n,
The Gift of eternal life, just by God is giv’n.
NO one is worthy, of God’s eternal Home,
We must follow Christ, as in this life we roam.
Righteousness we have, comes for Christ, Him alone,
His Sacrifice on the cross, did atone.

ARE YOU GOD’S ENEMY
His righteousness is near; list’ to me,
God wants to be your friend, not enemy!
He wants you in His fam’ly above,
For all His children, He surely does love.
God’s enemy, you don’t want to be,
For dark Hell will be your destiny.
Instead, you need to trust Christ to save,
You’ll ‘overcome’; no longer sin’s slave.
Christ can save you; He’s the ONLY One,
Save you from Hell, and God will not shun.
You’ll spend eternity in Heav’n above,
Thanks be to God, and His endless love.
What a marvelous place Heav’n must be,
And YOU can live there, for eternity.
God devised A Way to get us there,
Accept His Son Jesus; He paid the fare.
Jesus is the Truth, Life, and Way,
Accept Him, and live in Heav’n some day.
Just ONE option remains; that is Hell,
Reject Jesus; and there you shall dwell.

ARE YOU ONE OF THE FEW?
Many in the past have felt Your Hand,
And You’ve blessed their efforts, thru’ out the land.
For when You called, they did not turn away,
They willingly loved, trusted and obeyed.
Many invitations, You do send,
It’s so sad that most, You do offend.
But the few who accept are privileg’d indeed,
For Your awesome touch, they did heed.
So very privileg’d and special al I,
For the Lord’s call, I did not deny.
On my own, I’d never be worthy,
But praise God, His Son gives vict’ry.
I’m privileg’d to be one of the few,
For Lord, I believe, and follow You.
You have touched me in a special way,
And Lord, I’ll be grateful, all my days.
One of the favored ones, you can be too,
You can be one of the privileg’d few.
Jesus is knocking at your heart’s door,
Open to Him for blessings, for ever more!

ARE YOU READY?
Are you ready for the coming of the Lord?
Are you really grounded in His living Word?
He’s able to keep what you commit to Him,
Not like all the cults, that follow ev’ry whim.
Do you know for certain that you are saved?
Or, do you follow Satan, and are depraved?
Will you be ready on that day He does come?
Or will you continue, away from Him to roam?
Are you grounded in the power of your faith?
Are you ready for that fateful day of death?
Our time here on Earth is so very short,
Are you letting Satan Heav’nly life abort?
Time is uncertain; like vapour in the air,
We’re here a while; then gone: do you know where?
Do you know the ‘place’ where forever you’ll dwell?
Let me ask you this: is it Heaven, or Hell?
Are you ready to meet the Almighty God?
All will stand before Him, the world abroad.
God has made ‘a’ plan to save your very soul,
Accept His plan, Jesus; you’re on Heaven’s roll!
Change your destination, if you’re on the wrong path,
Just trust in Jesus, will keep you from God’s wrath.
Believe God; trust Jesus; let Him take control,
And you will be ready, when He comes for your soul.

ARE YOU WISE OR FOOLISH?
A wise man will hear, and increase learning,
The need to know God, is a constant yearning.
“But fools despise wisdom and instruction,”
Sad to say, they’re headed for destruction.
“Rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee,”
From the wrong he does, he wants to flee.
“Fools will despise the wisdom of thy words,”
So answer not, lest ye be in accord.
“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise,”
All that he learneth, he shall not despise.
“A companion of fools shall be destroyed,”
Where they’re headed, they won’t be o’er joyed.
“The law of the wise is a fountain of life,”
In the coming life, there shall be no strife.
God says: “The thought of foolishness is sin,”
Just with Christ, does eternal life begin!
He says: “A fool uttereth all his mind,”
One who ‘knows it all’, do you know the kind?
It is the will of God, always has been,
The wise put to silence those foolish men.
God states: “The wise man’s eyes are in his head,”
Night is nothing for them ever to dread.
“But the fool always walketh in darkness,”
He’s simply blind, and the Lord, he won’t confess.
Who are wise? and fools? in the eyes of the Lord?
You can find the answer in His good Word.
Are you wise; one who buildeth on the “Rock”?
Or a fool; who’ll never be in God’s flock?

At The Judgment
Reincarnation believers, a sad fate,
For them, at the Judgment, great terror awaits!
Their after-life is eternal damnation,
For all who believe, in reincarnation.
At the Judgment, Hitler will be in agony,
For he murdered, six million identities.
As names are read, he’ll hear ev’ry single scream,
That took place because of, his unmerciful scheme.
At the Judgment, millions of names shall be read,
For most of which, not a single tear was shed.
All mothers and doctors, the Judge shall expose,
All abortion participants, shall have, eternal woes.
At the Judgment, those who rejected the Lord,
All shall be judged, by God’s perfect Holy Word.
They’ll stand in shock, for they believed heresies,
Neglecting their salvation, for eternity.
Homosexuals who flaunted, their wicked lust,
Wishing God’s children, would go back to the dust.
Lesbians with such hatred of Christ, in their heart,
Shall hear Judge Jesus say: “From Me, depart.”
Atheistic teachers, full of apostasy,
Lying politicians, removing prayer from society.
Movie and TV actors, spouting blasphemies,
The Judge will hear none, of their desperate pleas.
Do you yearn for the day, when the Lord shall appear?
Are you ready, or does your heart have great fear?
God’s enemies must become, your enemies,
At the Judgment, you’ll be judged, for eternity.

ASHAMED OF THE LORD JESUS
Why are people, ashamed of the Lord?
Going this route, they cannot afford!
Their mind’s eye, is as blind as can be,
They never consider, eternity!
If the Lord Jesus, you do deny,
The gate of Hell, to you shall apply!
To turn your back, on the King of kings,
Is absolutely, a horrid thing!
God the Father, made only ONE Plan,
Long, long ago, to save sinful man!
That Plan, is God’s only begotten Son,
To believe this, salvation’s begun!
You cannot call Holy God, a “Liar”,
That will lead you, to the lake of fire!
Not believing God, is a deadly sin,
Enemies of God, Heaven will NOT win!
Why do so many, have so much fear,
To speak of Jesus, and hold Him near?
To be ashamed of Him, is SO wrong,
It simply puts you, in Satan’s throng!
Ashamed of Christ?? You’re on the broad road,
And that leads only, to Hell’s abode!
At the Great White Throne, the Judge shall say,
To the Lake of Fire, you will go this day!
Jesus loves you, loves you SO much friend,
Wants eternity, with you to spend!
He lives in Heaven, do you there want to go?
Or will your home be, Hell’s horrid sorrow?
Do not be ashamed, of Jesus the Lord!
Proudly tell others, of Him and His Word!
Not believing God, leads to God’s wrath,
And that is, a most treacherous path!
What profit is it, the whole world to gain?
And the depths of Hell instead, you attain?
Everlasting destruction, you want not,
Accept Christ, and the heavenly home, for you He bought!

Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. (KJV)
Matthew 16:24-27 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. (KJV)
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (KJV)
John 3:15-18 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (KJV)
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (KJV)
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. (KJV)
1 John 5:10-13 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (KJV)
John 15:18-19 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. (KJV)
Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (KJV)
Matthew 10:32-33 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. (KJV)
2 Thes.1:8-9 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; (KJV)
The backslider’s heart is full of his own ways,
Thinking of God does not enter his days.
Many of His people backslide from Him,
Sinful, corrupt children; to them God is dim.
Iniquity abounds; their love grows cold,
Do they want to be removed from His fold?
When you’ve heard of Christ, and are known of God,
Why think to go back, to evil you trod?
God states: “Now the just shall live by his faith,
But the soul that goes against God ends in death.”
The soul that draws back, God’s not happy with him,
Consider the facts: it’s either sink, or swim.
Did you accept Christ after hearing the Word?
Then you escape the pollution’s of this world.
The knowledge of our Saviour, you did gain,
Why go back to the world’s pow’r that does wane?
Are you one who draws back into perdition?
‘Twill be a sad day, if you God does shun.
“No man having put his hand to the plough,
And looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God.”
I pray you’re not one who turns against God,
But if you are, turn back now; as you trod.
He wants for you to come out of the cold,
Waits patiently, to bring you back to the fold!

CHOICES AND CONSEQUENCES
Life is a multitude of choices,
Some bring tears, others make us rejoice.
We make decisions, be they good or bad,
The consequences, make us glad or sad!
There are diff’rent roads, from which we choose,
Results can grant gain; or we can lose.
The paths we choose, mold our very life,
Some bring contentment; some bring great strife!
In this life, we can choose from many roads,
That can lead to light or heavy loads.
But in the realm of eternity,
There are just two roads, for you and me.
We can choose the narrow road, so strait,
That leads to God’s Home; Heaven’s gate.
Those who choose this road, are sparse and few,
The decision is yours; it’s up to you!
The only other road is smooth and wide,
Many are on it, taking long strides.
The consequence is sheer agony,
In a burning Hell, for eternity!
You choose; and accept the consequence,
The torture of Hell; or God’s presence!
Just two destinations; Heav’n, or Hell,
Which place my friend, will you choose to dwell?

‘DAY’ OF THE LORD, THE
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!

DAY OF THE LORD, THE
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.

Detour! there’s great temptation ahead!
Let Satan know, by Christ you are led!
Submit to God, and the devil will flee,
Detour around sin, receive victory!
Detour! there are bad habits to break,
Please turn away, don’t make a mistake!
Drugs and liquor, can ruin your mind,
It would be better, a new life to find!
Detour! ahead is much wickedness,
You must avoid it, for God to bless!
All sexual sin, is impurity,
Turn and be gone, from iniquity!
Detour! beware of those who falsely teach!
The devil’s children deceitfully preach!
Truly wolves, in sheep’s clothing are they,
Turn quickly, my friend, and run away!
Detour! looming is envy and hate,
You want instead, love to be your fate!
Turn to Jesus, He can rightly guide,
He can be your Friend, and He will abide!

To dishonor Christ, is worse than death,
Let me think of this, as I take each breath.
I pray His Name I’ll never disgrace,
Or His precious Sacrifice, ever debase.
I pray I’ll never disgrace His Name,
And that I never bring Jesus shame.
Let me not be ashamed of my King,
I want not any reproach to bring.
I pray I’ll never my Saviour deny,
That would be worse than if I would die.
Let me not discourage others, I pray,
But make Jesus proud, each and ev’ry day.
To dishonor Christ is an awful sin,
With God the Father, you cannot win.
Let me never use His Name in vain,
I pray I never bring my Saviour shame.
Let me never dishonor my Lord,
I should walk with Him in willing accord.
I pray for wisdom to live in His Light,
Dishonoring Christ, is a fearful plight.
To dishonor Christ, will judgment bring,
For God thinks, it’s a horrible thing.
We should never bring our Saviour shame,
Instead we should honor and praise His Name.

Do You Qualify??
If you have not accepted Christ today,
May I ask: “Just what is your delay?”
One day soon, He’ll come in the clouds on high,
None too soon, for you to qualify.
Why do you refuse to open the door?
You don’t realize, what He holds in store.
He stands knocking, but won’t force His way in,
When you open the door, blessings begin.
You must qualify, or He won’t call you,
You must believe on Christ, be one of the few.
Have you opened your heart’s door, to the Lord?
Rejecting Him, you simply can’t afford.
Do you qualify, for Heaven above?
Have you considered His amazing love?
Only Christ Jesus has Heaven’s one key,
Just He can give you life eternally!
You must overcome, to enter Heaven,
Victory is only to those few given.
Faith is the answer, to this victory,
Do you qualify, for life eternally?

DO YOU THINK ABOUT HELL?
Friend, did you ever have any thoughts about Hell?
This place of torture, where so many shall dwell?
Many do not believe, there is such a place,
But it does exist, way deep down in space!
The New Testament often of it does speak,
Over two hundred times, and none very weak!
God keeps on warning us, o’er and o’er again,
Wants us to avoid all the distress and pain.
If you were traveling one of Earth’s highways,
And you saw that many warning along the way,
What would you do, plunge on directly ahead?
Or, turn around, and find a good road instead?
God has put up many warning signs ahead,
He’s trying to point you, away from Hell’s dread!
But if you insist, and follow the wrong road,
God has only one choice: “Hell as your abode.”
“Am I trying to scare you?” this you might ask,
I certainly hope so, for this is my task.
Jesus taught more on Hell, than any other thing,
So what I do say, I have hopes it will sting.
If you have not thought about Hell, please do it now!
Heaven should be your goal, and I’ll teach you how!
God made just one Plan, to save our souls from Hell,
Believe, trust Jesus, and in Heaven you shall dwell!

Who is a ‘liar’ in the eyes of God?
God’s Word clearly tells, in words big and broad!
ALL who deny that Jesus is the Christ,
Is a liar to God; and will pay the price!
You deny God, if you deny His Son,
Believe in Jesus; and you have overcome!
Jesus did come by water and by Blood,
Just believe; and you’re cleansed by the Flood.
God gave us a record; in His true Word;
Don’t call God a ‘liar’, or you’ll be barr’d.
He’s giv’n to us, eternal life in His Son,

Doom's Day For Unbelievers
For those who don't believe God, Doom's Day is near,
The sorrow of today's times, God is NOT feared!
Hypocrites, please know, that Judgment Day looms,
Not believing God, brings the harshest doom!
WHY do people clutch, damnable heresies?
That will only lead them, to Hell's agony?
All souls are eternal, WHY don't you believe?
WHY go to the Lake of Fire, and for e'er grieve?
"A license to sin" is false, thru' and thru',
Christ gives NO permit to sin, to me OR you!
Biblical repentance, is what God desires,
And that's what will keep you, from the Lake of Fire!
Salvation ia a FREE GIFT, from God's grace,
NO work we do will e'er, let us see Christ's Face!
Christ has pow'r, to put us in God's family,
And THAT friend, gives us, life eternally!
You either believe God's Word, or you don't,
And old Satan blinds eyes, so that you won't!
God tells us, eternal life will always be,
Sin will NOT take it away, from you or me!
Christ paid our sin debt, in full He did pay!
So we can have, eternal life some day!
Yes! We still sin! But we can make it right!
Confess it to God, and be pleasing in His sight!
Confessing sin means, God is right and we are wrong!
Agreeing with God, takes us from Satan's throng!
Eternal life means, just what it tells,
Trusting Christ, exempts you from Hell!

Enemies of God
To the cross of Christ, many are enemies,
As they speed head-first into eternity.
“I’m a Christian” many of them profess,
But in their heart, Christ they do not possess.
For His enemies, God shall reserve His wrath,
Ev’ry one of those, on that big, broad path,
To be a “Christian,” you must trust and obey,
You must turn from your sin, and go the right way.
The Lord’s enemies, take His Name in vain,
With vile blasphemy, ever so profane.
They talk His talk, but refuse to walk His walk,
They give in to temptation, as Satan stalks.
From the cross of Christ, many turn away,
Apostasy is rampant, this very day.
Pretending to be Christ’s, is hypocrisy,
Judgment shall be yours, like the Pharisees.
Do you say with your mouth: “Christ belongs to me,”
Are you at all concerned, ‘bout eternity?
When you talk the talk, you must walk on His path,
Or on Judgment Day, you shall feel God’s wrath.
You must repent of your sin, and it forsake,
Or the gates of Heaven, you’ll never make.
To continue in your sin, you shall see Hell,
And there for eternity, you will dwell.

EYES THAT CANNOT SEE
‘Tis so sad, when those with eyes, cannot see,
Our awesome Creator’s majesty.
They walk thru’ the garden, they see the flow’rs,
But cannot perceive God’s unlimited pow’r.
Feeling, sight and hearing, are true blessings,
‘Tis wonderful, just what our senses bring.
We can touch, smell, taste, we can see and hear,
We should thank the Lord, and hold all these things dear.
Sight shows us the colors of the rainbow,
We can hear birds sing; a blessing God bestows.
Warmth of the sun, and the cool, brisk breeze we feel,
These physical senses, are O so real.
The blind man would see; if only he could,
The deaf man would hear, if his ears were good.
Many are they who have cold, hearts of stone,
Choosing to go, without Christ; so alone.
Just our Lord, can give us a tender heart,
And fill it with love, that will not depart.
The Presence of God, just this heart can feel,
Christ blesses us with a pure heart, O so real.
Just Christ can give us a spiritual ear,
Where things of His Kingdom, we gladly hear.
The Spirit gently whispers, deep inside,
From His home in our soul, where He abides.
Just Christ can give us a spiritual eye,
Where we can see our Lord, and not deny.
Things of His Kingdom, we willingly see,
As we trust in His grace, eternally.

God Is Good . . . To The Righteous
God is good, to those with a clean heart,
Let not my feet, from Your path depart.
I admit Lord, some times my steps slip,
Help me Lord, as I journey on my trip.
Those who are fools, let me not envy,
Nor lust for the wicked’s property.
Let not my pride, compass me like a chain,
And let me from all violence refrain.
The wicked’s eyes, are as an empty dish,
Ev’n tho’ they have more, than heart could wish.
Corrupt they are, speaking wickedly,
And of oppression, speak loftily.
Against the heavens, blasphemy they speak ,
Worldly pow’r and riches, is all they seek.
Humility, is something they know not,
For their sins, they think, they’ll ne’er be caught.
How? they say, does God know what I do?
Does He have knowledge of me, and you?
They pay Him no mind, as wealth they increase,
As their lust and greed, seem ne’er to cease.
So many shall be brought, to desolation,
As they continue on, in depravation.
The wicked’s image, God does despise,
Their evil works will bring on, their demise.
With Thy counsel and wisdom, guide me Lord,
Let me not stray, from You and Your Word.
Lord, Whom in Heaven have I, but Thee?
When I pass on, receive me to glory.
You are my strength, tho’ my heart and flesh fail,
Only with Thy pow’r, can I prevail.
You shall destroy those, who are far from Thee,
So I’ll trust You now, and thru’ eternity.

What kind of books, does our awesome God keep?
Will things be read, that will make me weep?
Will secret things, be brought into plain view?
I think about these things, what about you?
I so oft wonder, about Judgment Day,
I wonder about things, Jesus will say.
My sins have been pardoned, this I know,
And Heaven is mine, not Hell below.
That Book of life, how many names are there?
Those who overcome, Christ, His glory shall share.
Christ shall proclaim, to His Father in Heav'n,
These in that book, to Christ Jesus were giv'n.
Judgment Day shall bring, all things into view,
All secrets shall be known, of both me and you.
It seems everything, that we do or say,
Is written in God's Books, for Judgment Day.
All the dead shall one day shall stand, 'fore God's throne,
And all we've ever done, shall be known.
We shall be judged, by things written in those books,
According to our works, naught will be mistook.
We shall account, for every idle word,
Justified or condemned, by the Lord.
God's Word is by which, Jesus shall judge by,
Did we accept His Word, or did we deny?
For bad works and for good, there must be books,
Judge Jesus shall simply, open and look.
With this in mind, we should pass our time in fear,
For we know not how soon, judgment is near.

God’s Throne of Grace
Thy Throne of Grace, is awesome indeed,
There for our access, each time we have need.
Made available, just thru’ our Lord,
Access is something, we all can afford.
Christ Jesus loved us, so very much,
Yet the hearts of most, He simply can’t touch.
Extremely stubborn, with hearts hard as stone,
Most don’t realize, just His Blood can atone.
To the cross He went, He was crucified,
Christ loved us so, on that cross He died.
Such a sacrifice, for us He made,
Our horrid sin debt, He completely paid.
Do you access, His awesome Throne of Grace?
Do it often, ‘tis a wondrous place!
Christ made it available, to you,
Do it often, if you’re one of the few.
Is the Lord Jesus, your Friend this day?
Have you allowed Him, your sin debt to pay?
Without Christ, anguish in Hell awaits,
You don’t want to go thru, that one way gate!
My friend, don’t reject the Saviour’s love,
Or you’ll ne’er see, Heaven’s beauty above!
You must trust Christ, to access God’s Throne,
Just faith in Jesus, your sins can atone.

GREAT WHITE THRONE, THE
A Great White Throne, in the Judgment Day,
With the One Great Judge, no one can sway.
Earth and Heav’n, will away from Him flee,
So great will be our Lord’s majesty!
Those who before the Great Judge do stand,
Will hold all their works in their hand.
These are spiritually dead, great and small,
Each rejected Christ, when they heard the call.
ALL who stand before the ‘Great White Throne’,
Are judged, just by their works alone.
ALL who reject Christ, and cast Him away,
Will be cast into Hell, on this ‘Day’.

GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT
All who have rejected God’s only Son,
Will stand ‘fore that Great White Throne; ‘tis good as done!
When that judgment day finally does come,
The “Judge” will decree Hell as your home.
There’s no panel of jurors in your case,
Christ alone will judge; you’ll stand face to face!
God has a record, of all you’ve done,
You’ll not hide one small thing, from God’s own Son!
There’s a way out, as you read this today,
You need not be condemned to Hell this way!
Just believe God; trust Christ to save your soul,
You can go to Heav’n, get your name on God’s roll.

HEAVEN OR HELL??
Heaven will be clothed with beauty and light,
Hell is naked before Him; dark as the night.
Heaven is high with Him; Hell is deep below,
Which of these places my friend, will you go?
Heaven is for all who love and obey God,
Hell, for Satan, and all who with him do trod.
Just as Heaven shall greet each one who believes,
Hell with its kings and chief ones, rejecters receive.
Heav’n can be attained by the young, or old,
Just trust Christ to save you, and you’re in the fold.
But all who can’t believe the Words God does tell,
Follow that slippy, dark way, and fall into Hell.
Not only the wicked ones to Hell will go,
‘Twill be many good, moral people, below.
A terrible pity, an eternal shame,
For those who refuse Christ, nor trust on His Name.
All God’s children will hear that Heavenly bell,
But all unbelievers, are turned into Hell.
Heav’n will be Home for those who trust and believe,
Hell is for rejecters; forever they’ll grieve.
It is easy your destination to change,
From Hell, to HEAVEN, do not think it so strange.
Believe what He says, just trust Jesus today,
Open your heart to Him. there’s no other way!
Only thru’ Jesus, there is NO other way,
To get to Heaven, on that fateful day.
No matter who you are, or where you are from,
God the Father, thru’ Jesus, will bid you “COME”.

HEAVEN VERSES HELL
Heaven and Hell are REAL; they do exist,
Heaven for those who Christ do not resist.
Hell was made for the devil and his angels,
But if you follow him, there you’ll dwell.
Most folk don’t think about Hell deep below,
They don’t think that there they will ever go.
I ask that you think about it today,
Just believe God, and you won’t go that way.
What’s the difference ‘tween Heav’n and Hell?
In God’s Word, He very plainly does tell.
In Heav’n living water; in Hell constant thirst,
The ‘Light’ of Christ, verses total darkness!
In Heav’n no more pain; in Hell agony,
Friendship in Heav’n, verses Hell’s enemies.
Love and joy of Heav’n, verses sadness and hate,
Twelve gates in Heav’n, verses Hell’s NO escape.
Comfort and contentment of God’s bright Heav’n,
No rest, and resentment, what Hell is giv’n.
Blessings and peace verses judgment and anger,
Constant fellowship, verses no one to care.
Blue skies and sweet fragrance of Heav’n so high,
Blackness and sulfur stench in Hell awry.
Green grass and flowers, verses dark deep pits,
No more tears in Heav’n; in Hell, screams won’t quit!
O’ dear friend, as you read these brutal words,
Please accept Christ; don’t reject or discard!
Only Christ can save you from deep dark Hell,
Only Christ gives Heav’n’s key, where you could dwell.

Heav’n Vs Hell
God’s children shall live in Heav’n above,
In this great city, fill’d with God’s love.
The home of Satan’s children is Hell,
In misery for e’er, they shall dwell.
Heav’n shall be an awesome, dazzling sight,
For e’er glist’ning, in God’s glorious light.
Worse than the blackest night, Hell shall be,
Smoth’ring darkness, for eternity.
In Heav’n, the Presence of God is there,
You will feel His great love, ev’ry where.
In Hell, God will be no where around,
Just agonizing pain, shall abound.
No more crying in Heav’n, no more tears,
Just peace, joy, comfort, and no more fears.
In Hell, crying and tears shall ne’er cease,
Foreboding heartbreak, will not decrease.
In Heav’n, a river starts at God’s Throne,
Its beauty, shall be our very own.
Hell will have NO water anywhere,
Distress and anguish, can’t be compar’d.
A tree of life, shall be by the street,
Its fruit to us, shall be a great treat.
In Hell, absolutely not one tree,
No nature’s beauty, no serenity.
In Heav’n, love, joy and tranquility,
Peace and contentment, eternally.
In Hell, suff’ring, that will never end,
And out of that pit, you’ll ne’er ascend.
In Heav’n there shall be twelve wondrous gates,
Each gate will be one pearl, e’er so great.
NO exit doors, anywhere in Hell,
This place where Satan and his children dwell.

HELL WON’T BE LIKE THIS
As you walk in your garden, in early day,
With the wonders of nature, along the way.
The grass so green, and lovely flowers so bright,
And birds singing their songs, in the sky so light.
O, please consider what I have to say,
Hell won’t be like this, on any giv’n day.
NONE of these precious things will ever be there,
Only darkness and agony, and despair.
The beautiful roses, so much you do love,
Red ones, yellow and pink; all from God above.
Their wonderful fragrance, does so fill the air,
Of these priceless treasures, nothing can compare.
Again, I beg you, hearken to the words I say,
Hell WON’T be like this, in any of these ways.
The fires of God’s judgment, burn forever more,
And there is NO escape for you; NOT one door!
Friendship and love you have for fam’ly and friends,
A warm glowing feeling, on Earth has no end.
The comfort, peace and joy, you have in your home,
Pleasures unnumbered, from God they do come.
O, please listen carefully to what I say,
HELL WON’T BE LIKE THIS, I pray, you I can sway!
Please turn to Jesus, accept God’s only Plan,
You do have a choice, and from Hell, you’ll be bann’d.

This poem came to me after speaking to someone I dearly loved.
She believed “your way” (Jesus) isn’t the only way,
and forbid me to speak ‘religion’ to her again.
HOW CAN I GET TO HEAVEN?
Can I get to Heav’n with wealth of this Earth?
Can I buy my way, into that bliss and mirth?
Jesus plainly tells us just how it will be,
“No man cometh to the Father, but by me.”
Can I get to Heav’n by my highly known fame?
Can my good repute excite God with my name?
God’s Word clearly tells us just how it will be,
“For there is no respect of persons with me.”
Can I get to Heav’n by ruling and power?
Can my strength and ability make God cower?
Jesus plainly tells us just how it will be,
“Ye shall die in your sins, if you reject me.”
Can I get to Heav’n with knowledge and wisdom?
Can my years of learning make Heav’n bid me “Come”?
God’s Word clearly tells us just how it will be,
God chose foolish, weak things, for eternity.
Can I get to Heav’n by beauty of my face?
Can outward appearance bring His saving grace?
Jesus plainly tells us just how it will be,
“Belief in me, will bring life eternally.”
Can I get to Heav’n thru’ good friends and good deeds?
Can Heav’n be attained by baptism or creeds?
God’s Word clearly tells us just how it will be,
We’re saved by grace, not works, lest boasters become we.
Jesus plainly tells us just how it will be,
Not all who call Him “Lord”, shall the gates of Heav’n see.
You must believe, and trust Him; to hear that bell,
Unbelievers are condemned, end up in Hell.

It matters not what others think of me,
My concern is the God of eternity.
What I do may not, with others sit just right,
But I must do what is pleasing in His sight.
I can’t go along with, this wicked world,
With each new day, more evil is unfurled.
Each of us must stand, ‘fore the Judge one day,
And I want Him to send me, Heaven’s way!
I can’t go along with, the blasphemy,
Using God’s Name in vain, e’er so freely.
I will instead stand, so close to His Side,
And pray that His Spirit, always reside.
I can’t go along with, stealing and lies,
Those who are oppressed, have painful cries.
I’ll walk close to Him, and trust Him to lead,
And to His wise counsel, I’ll always heed.
I can’t go along with, immorality,
Sexual lust, gives Satan victory.
I must walk with Christ, in His Light instead,
That the agony of hell, I’ll never dread.
I can’t go along with, covetousness,
If I’m greedy and love money, God won’t bless.
I must store up my treasures, way up there,
Storing things here, won’t get me any where.
I must go along with, what God wants for me,
Or I’ll never see, life eternally.
What others think of me; it matters not,
For I’m God’s child, with Christ’s Blood, I was bought.

I Can’t Imagine
I can’t ev’n begin to imagine,
How much You hate any and all sin.
I can’t imagine, Your purity,
And how much You hate my iniquity.
I can’t imagine, Your holiness,
And my sins You forgive, when I confess.
I can’t imagine, that my sins You cast,
Into the deepest ocean, O so vast.
I can’t imagine, Your abundant love,
Such as You portray, from Heav’n above.
I can’t imagine, the love You express,
But I humbly accept it, each time You bless.
I can’t imagine, Your awesome grace,
My sins . . . forgiv’n and gone, without a trace.
I can’t imagine, Your grace so free,
Amazing grace, always there for me!
I can’t imagine, what lies in store,
Hope of eternal life, on Heav’n’s shore.
I can’t imagine, the beauty there,
Nothing in my mind, can ev’n compare.
I can’t imagine, how life there will be
But I know I’ll sing praises to Thee.
I can’t imagine, life for e’er more,
Where my Lord and Master, I’ll adore.

I Must Judge Me
First and foremost, I must judge me,
As I walk on, to eternity.
Difficult paths, rugged and steep,
But a sense of right, is what I must keep.
Judging other’s hearts, I must not do,
“Judge not” Jesus tells me, words so true.
If I judge, I’ll be judged the same way,
And this I don’t want, on Judgment Day.
If I judge others, I condemn me,
For I may do the same, as my enemy.
To judge others, no excuse have I,
My actions, Christ will not justify.
What will I say, at the Judgment Seat?
When Judge Jesus, I finally meet?
‘Twill be just me, and me alone,
All I have e’er done, will be known.
Have you e’er consider’d these things?
What will you friend, to this court bring?
We’ll be judged, by what we do and say,
How we treat those, along life’s way.
As I walk on, to eternity,
I must consider, judging me.
Judging others, I must forget,
When I judge self, I’ll have no regrets.

(KJV) On Judgment Day, each person will stand before God and will be found “guilty” OR “innocent” based upon his or her rejection or acceptance of Jesus Christ (Mat.25:32,41,46; Heb.9:27; Rev. 20:12). Believe it!
Most commit the sin of idolatry,
And it leads to eternal Hell’s agony.
So many things in life, take the Lord’s place,
Which leads to great displeasure, on His Face.
With money and riches, Satan does tempt,
And not one person, from it is exempt.
Storing treasures on Earth, is stupidity,
For all the world offers, is temporary.
Treasures in Heav’n, should be first on our mind,
When we lust for wealth, Satan our eyes blinds.
Idolatry dear one, is covetousness,
When we’re greedy for gain, God will not bless.
Idolatry can be, any pleasure,
Sports or sex, or leisure without measure.
Anything you put above God, is wrong,
You’re speeding down the broad road, with a throng.
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Oct.11, 2005 # 1093
Idolatry is a serious thing,
For it, the wrath of God, on you does bring.
Anything above God, that you place,
Means one day, condemnation you’ll face.
Riches, an idol that leads astray,
Love of money, tempts us ev’ry day.
To place above God, what wealth can buy,
Is dreadful sin, in God’s Holy Eye.
Pleasure too, can be idolatry,
From this idol, very few are free.
Sports of all kinds, make people go wild,
Pleasure makes folks forget, they’re God’s child.
Idolatry is glory and fame,
These, never think of Jesus’ Name.
They want the world to see all they do,
Pride, pride, pride; don’t let it get to you.
It is a jealous God that we serve,
Our love and affections, He deserves.
He must be first in our life, always,
If we want to travel, Heav’n’s highway.
Idolatry leads only to Hell,
Where all walking the broad road, shall dwell.
Trust and obey Christ Jesus this day,
For just He can show you, Heav’n’s display.

One day, all people will stand Face to face,
Before Judge Jesus, at a judgment place.
“According to their works,” is how it shall be,
As Christ readies each one, for eternity.
In this life as we live, we must prepare,
For our eternal soul, we must take care.
God provides, only two destinations,
This we must take, in consideration.
At the “Judgment Seat,” believers will stand,
Not one will be forgotten, in all the land.
Do you believe God? Do you trust and obey?
God’s Book tells us, there’s no other way!
Those who deny Christ, and refuse to believe,
Harsh judgment at the “Great White Throne,” they’ll receive.
Into the “Lake of Fire,” these will be cast,
Their punishment there, will for ever last.
Decisions for eternity, in your hand rest,
Don’t wait for Judgment Day, to take the test!
It really does matter, what you believe,
Trust Jesus, if Heaven, you want to receive.
He waits this day for you, so patiently,
His desire is to give you, life eternally.
Open the door of your heart, this very day,
For just Jesus can get you, to Heaven one day.
Judgment Day looms, it shall come, that is sure,
Will it be Hell’s horror, or Heaven’s grandeur?
Only in this life on Earth, can you decide,
Where in eternity, you will reside.
BE WISE my friend!

Jesus can see, deep down in your soul,
As your life actions, He does patrol.
There is nothing from Him, you can hide,
For His Spirit, in you does abide.
Your heart within, our Lord Jesus knows,
Words and actions, from your heart flows.
Ev’ry word you say, all things you do,
All have their start, in the heart of you.
We all must face Christ, on Judgment Day,
To this awesome Judge, what will you say?
Excuses won’t work, neither will lies,
All is recorded, on which He relies.
Accountable, each one of us will be,
To the Judge, King of eternity.
What e’er His verdict, twill be just and true,
No one can change it, not me, not you!
The Judgment Seat? Or the Great White Throne?
Accept or reject Christ . . . Each to his own.
Which of these two places, will you stand?
The decision lies, just in your hand.
At the Judgment Seat, to Heav’n you’ll go,
At the Great White Throne, ‘twill be Hell’s woe.
Jesus can see deep down, in your soul,
My friend, give Him your life, to control.

JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST, THE
The Judgment Seat of Christ is not far away,
ALL believers will stand ‘fore Him that day.
We will be judged by the Righteous One,
Rewards will be giv’n for service well done.
Already judged, is our destiny,
Accepting Christ, omits Hell’s agony.
For our sins, on the Cross, He did atone,
Saved our sins from Hell, He and He alone!
Our service to Him will come into light,
Only works done for Him, will stand so bright.
All others shall be burned, clean away,
ALL will be revealed by fire that day.
If our work be burned, we’ll suffer loss,
If not done for Christ, ‘tis counted as dross.
But if our work survive the test of the fire,
We’ll receive a reward; the Lord’s desire.
Only what we do for Jesus will last,
All others is burned; what a contrast!
If you do works to get glory and fame,
You have your reward now; then, you’ll have shame.
Friend, are you ready, before Christ to stand?
You’ll be alone, with your works in your hand.
Will you receive reward? OR suffer loss?
Only this Man knows; the One from the Cross.

JUST ONE MORE CHANCE
As people live, most don’t think of Hell,
Yet it is a place, where millions dwell.
Folks won’t admit it, but this fact is true,
To avoid Hell, the choice is up to you.
If you won’t accept what God has to say,
You will acquire Hell as your home one day.
When you arrive, you’ll see you were wrong,
As you join, that agonizing throng.
God speaks only Truth; He never lies,
“We don’t believe” is how people reply.
They just long for ways, this life to enhance,
But one day they’ll beg, for just one more chance!
But when they beg, God’s mercy will be gone,
There’ll be no more chances, in a new dawn.
God now reaches out in love, to you and me,
Off’ring the GIFT of life eternally!
“Just one more chance” Hell’s residents will cry,
“You called Me a Liar” will be God’s reply!
God will ne’er change His mind, once you are there,
Eternal anguish, with millions you will share.
“Please God, just one more chance” they will plead,
But God’s grace is gone; their screams He won’t heed!
No more chances for you, after you die,
Believe God now, and on Jesus rely!
You are free to choose Jesus this day,
Just He can send you, to Heav’n’s blissful array.
The only chance you need, is now before you,
Heaven or Hell? my friend, what will you do?

Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the
book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (KJV)
There is NO purgatory anywhere in the Holy Word of God! Millions shall cry out in agony: JUST ONE MORE CHANCE, but after death, it is too late. NOW is the day of salvation if you don’t know Christ! The Truth about Salvation.
LORD, LET THEM CONSIDER
Lord, let them consider You, ‘fore it’s too late,
Let them know that just You, can open Heav’n’s gate.
Millions do not consider, eternity,
And only You, Jesus, can set their soul free.
In the body of flesh, the soul is bound,
And without Jesus, no pardon can be found.
E’er so deep, Satan has the imprisoned soul,
But Jesus can release it, He has full control.
Before it’s too late, please do consider this,
Without Jesus, you’ll ne’er realize Heav’n’s bliss.
Condemn’d you will be, to the gate of Hell,
And there for eternity, you shall dwell.
Lord, let them consider You, this is my pray’r,
This world is so fickle, with no love or care.
Only with Jesus’ awesome, amazing grace,
Can you have victory, in life’s long, hard race.

- The eternal duration of the sufferings of the lost: Matthew 25:46; Jude 1:6.
Their condition after casting off the mortal body is spoken of in these revealing words: “Fire that shall not be quenched” (Mark 9:45-46), “fire unquenchable” (Luke 3:17), “the worm that never dies,” “the smoke of their torment ascending up for ever and ever” (Rev. 14:10-11).
MEMORIES YOU WILL HAVE
If you choose the broad road that leads to Hell,
That place of judgment, where all evil dwells.
You will have memories, for ever more,
The Bible does tell what is held in store.
Today most folk don’t study the Good Book,
They’d see for themselves, if they’d just look!
ALL who reject Christ, will end up in Hell,
And in that awful place, for e’er they’ll dwell!
Those who are there, wish they had one more try,
They look back; and for loved ones do cry.
Rejection of Jesus, they see in remorse,
If they had one more chance, they’d change their course!
The anger, pain, misery, and the thirst,
All the suffering; their minds near do burst.
Such a clear memory, of when on Earth,
But they rejected Christ, and all His worth!
If you were to ask any one of those,
There in dark Hell, where God’s judgment flows,
“Is there any thing I can do for you?”
They’d say: “Yes, tell others what Christ can do.”

NO EXIT GATES IN HELL
Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (KJV)
There seem to be many gates, into Hell,
This place of torment, where millions shall dwell.
Are you on your way, to one of those gates?
You can change your course, for it’s not too late!
Since Heav’n has twelve gates, maybe Hell does too,
We could guess all day, but we have no clue.
It matters not, how many gates there be,
Enter into one, it shuts eternally!
Any sin, can put a person in Hell,
A place where you, do NOT want to dwell!
Multiple sins are rampant, the world wide,
Instead in Christ Jesus, you must abide.
Cast away all sin, from your life today,
Believe God, accept Christ, is the right way.
Because all do it, does NOT make it right,
Wickedness in God’s eyes, is black as night!
God is a just God, so holy and pure,
My friend, there is NO sin, that He will endure.
E’vn a small sin, He will not tolerate,
All sin will lead you, to one of Hell’s gates!
Are on Satan’s road, to Hell’s eternity.
Sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars,
Are speeding their way, to the Lake of Fire.
Heav’n is yours, if in Christ Jesus you believe,
Eternal life is what, you will receive.
If you care for your soul, choose carefully,
Heav’n, or the gates of Hell, eternally!

NO MORES OF HEAVEN
The beauty of our God’s Heaven can’t be told,
It’s unspeakable; and one day we’ll behold!
There’ll be so many things that won’t be there,
I’m looking forward to climbing that stair.
No more pain from troubles or labors long,
No more sickness, no disease; nothing wrong!
No more heart attacks, no cancer, no doctors,
No more old age, no more death held in store.
There shall be no more funerals, e’er again,
No parting, no families, broken by men!
No more poverty, no hunger, no more thirst,
No more afflictions that need to be nursed.
No more oppression of the poor weak folk,
No injustice, that would take their only cloak.
No more suffering, no confusion, no more stress,
No more war, no more crime, no more wickedness!
No more evil, no hatred, and no more lies,
No drunkenness, no hard feelings to deny.
No more meanness, no ugliness, no more strife,
I can’t ev’n imagine this kind of life!
No more pride, no stubbornness, no more fear,
No depressing moments will e’er come near!
No disappointments, no more heartaches deep,
No more worry, no more loneliness to reap.
No more sin of any kind; Satan is gone!
No one to discourage; ‘twill be a new dawn!
Do you want to go to this marvelous place/
Just accept Jesus, you’ll go by God’s grace!

NO MORES OF HELL
No more wonderful fragrance of a rose,
No more beautiful birds; can you suppose?
No more blue skies, with fluffy clouds so white,
No more children playing, with laughter so bright.
No more peace at heart, no more feeling swell,
No more joyous occasions; not in Hell.
No more fishing or boating on water clear,
Friend, there is no more water, no where near!
No more friendship of joy, found in that throng,
No more comforts of home, no loving song.
No more music or laughter in that place,
No more of God’s mercy, pardon, or grace!
No more light, not even a tiny bit,
No more tranquillity, no contentment.
No more goodness of any kind, e’er more,
No more blessings from God will be in store!
No more love, joy, nor happiness in Hell,
Is this the place you have chosen to dwell?
No more beauty of nature on Hell’s banks,
Just darkness forever; ‘twill be so rank!
You’re on the way to Heav’n or Hell this day,
Only Jesus can get you to Heav’n’s way!
But if you do reject God’s only Son,
Hell does await, and agony begun.

One day soon, our Lord, in the clouds will come,
To take all born again, believers home.
Those “dead in Christ”, shall be the first to rise,
We must be ready, so it’s no surprise.
The Lord Himself, from Heaven shall descend,
Believers here, shall to the clouds ascend.
We shall meet our dear Lord, high in the air,
Never again, will we e’ev have despair.
Jesus says, there are many mansions in Heav’n,
And one to each of God’s children, is giv’n.
Reserved in Heav’n, an inheritance true,
Undefiled and won’t fade away, for you.
Are you living, as our dear Lord requires?
Are you watching, as Christ Jesus desires?
Jesus shall come, in the blink of an eye,
Upon God’s Holy Word, you must rely.

The old devil, no longer shall deceive.

Thank You, thank You, for life eternally!

Your grace has been sufficient, each day,
As I claim this Promise, as I pray.
One day soon, no sorrow will there be,
No more sorrow, in eternity!
At times on Earth, we’ll have great sadness,
But in Heav’n, the Lord will always bless.
One day soon, all temptation will cease,
For in Heav’n, there shall be only peace!
For now, to escape, God makes a way,
Submit to God, Satan will run away.
One day soon, I’ll not sin any more,
For I’ll be with Jesus, on Heav’n’s shore!
A new sinless body, like my Lord,
Is what is clearly taught, in God’s Word.
One day soon, I will have perfect rest,
In Heav’n, I will be, eternally blessed!
While on Earth, God will take care of me,
And afterward, receive me to glory!
One day soon, I will walk that street of gold,
As the beauty of Heav’n, I behold!
What a wonderful day, that shall be,
That first full day, of eternity!

ONLY ONE ROAD TO GOD!
In this life, there is only one road,
A narrow one, leading to God’s abode.
All other roads lead to that broad highway,
Traveling them, you are Satan’s prey.
All sin, and come short of God’s glory,
Wages of that sin is death, not victory.
God can’t look on sin of any kind,
We must turn to Him, leave sin behind!
All who sin, deserve its penalty,
The fires of hell, with no serenity.
But, --- God gives a “Gift” to me and you,
Eternal life thru’ Christ who did rescue.
God showed great love, sending His Son to die,
Christ loved us so, He was crucified.
He paid our sin debt we could not pay,
By His Sacrifice He did portray.
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us,
By shedding His Blood, so very precious.
Silver and gold our salvation can’t buy,
Heav’n can’t be ours, if Christ’s work we deny.
Heav’n can be ours, if we walk the right road,
Hand in hand with Christ, He’ll help bear our load.
His great light will shine, making things bright,
All darkness will flee, for He is the Light!
Jesus is the Truth, the Life and the Way,
And the only Road that leads to Heav’n’s array.
Christ is the narrow Road millions reject,
But just He alone, your soul can protect.

God’s grace is gone! His wrath does start!
For from His Son, you did depart!
Rejecting Christ thru’ unbelief,
Will cause lost souls, eternal grief.
The wages of sin is death, my friend,
You’ll go to Hell where pain won’t end.
Unbelief to God is the worst sin,
Is today; always has been!
It’s telling God He’s a liar,
Your payday will be the ‘Lake of Fire’.
Payday will come on ‘Judgment Day’,
The ‘Righteous Judge’ you will not sway.
The ‘Books’ will be opened wide,
There’ll be NO place for you to hide.
You can avoid ‘Payday in Hell’,

Sent His Son to us, who suffer’d, bled and died.
Praise Him ye sinner, if you do believe,
His loving Arms await, you to receive.
In that lonely garden, Jesus did weep,
While His disciples, fell fast asleep.
How He loved us, His life for us He gave,
Praise Him ye sinner, only Christ can save.
He spoke to the Father, to remove the cup,
Yet, O so willingly, He drank it all up.
O what endless love, all for you and me,
Praise Him ye sinner, Christ truly loves thee.
Horrid anguish, was deep within His soul,
Great drops of Blood, from His Brow did roll.
Indescribable love, so deep and vast,
Praise Him ye sinner, for His love will last.
His lonely cries echo, on Calv’ry’s hill,
Christ who loves us, did His father’s will.
My God, O my God, why did Thou forsake?
Praise Him ye sinner, His love you can take.
Lord, Your suff’ring and toiling time is thru’,
At God’s right Hand, is the right place for You.

Satan will come only to your door,

He’ll blind your eyes, the Gospel he’ll hide,
And on the road to Hell, he will guide.
Satan is cunning, very crafty,
Be on guard, he is your enemy!
He’s clever and shrewd, to lead astray,
You must be careful, both night and day.
Bold as a lion, sly as a fox,
And God’s children he constantly stalks.
Put on the complete armour of God,
To stand against the wiles of this fraud.
Satan is skillful at subtle lies,
Alert and watchful; how hard he tries.
From the beginning he did deceive,
In the garden with Adam and Eve.

But against Satan’s dangerous flood.
Spiritual wickedness does o’er flow,
All that we do here an Earth below.
He accuses us ‘fore God each day,
Slandering us, in so many ways.
He speaks lies; is the ‘father’ of it,
Abides not in truth, and will not quit.
As a roaring lion, seeking prey,
Walking all about, both night and day.
We must be watchful, and serious,
For Satan’s the king, of all darkness.
We cannot go against him alone,
For we’d give in to him, then groan!
Submit yourself to God; that’s the key,

They’re always so actice to proselyte,

Satan has many children; a great crowd,
Spreading false doctrine, shouting aloud.
And for the devil, they firmly stand,
They’re partners with Satan; hand in hand!
Their evil doctrine at first sounds good,
But they teach falsely, and not as they should!
They’re truly dedicated to their cause,
In serving the devil, they never pause!
God’s children also should persevere,
Yet bringing the Gospel seems to cause fear.
The ‘Truth’ to the lost ones must be told,
We must witness for Christ; we must be bold!

We must confess Christ and His precious Name,
Or one day He’ll deny us, to our shame!

Matthew 10:32-33 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. [KJV] Jesus' Words.
Anyone who acknowledges JESUS publicly here on earth, He will openly recognize and confess that person before His Father in Heaven. But anyone who denies JESUS here on earth, He will deny that person before my Father in heaven.
Satan’s Dirty Ways
When Christ as Saviour, you do accept,
There are some things, you must expect.
Satan will not be happy with you,
His evil ways will come into view.
Satan despises our precious Lord,
O’er and o’er we’re told this, in God’s Word.
He doesn’t want you, with Christ to abide,
The devil wants you, back on his side.
Satan will try you, in so many ways,
Working e’er so hard, both night and day.
He doesn’t want you, Jesus to love,
He’ll try to keep you from Heav’n above.
Don’t listen to his sweet-sounding lies,
Don’t fall for his deceiving cries.
He doesn’t mean any good at all,
Impatiently he waits, for you to fall.
If he tempted Jesus, way back then,
He’ll tempt you too, o’er and o’er again.
You can shout for joy, the vict’ry cry,
If on Christ Jesus, you do rely.
By: His servant, Connie Kramer April 4, 2003 # 941
Satan will discourage you in any way he can; making your troubles mount. If you are wise, you will not look at your problems; you should look to Christ!
SATAN’S HOME OF AGONY
Are you trav’ling a road of no return?
Do you for the world’s wealth, and pleasure yearn?
Do you lust after fortune and fame?
Do you e’er think of our Lord Jesus’ Name?
Most people are speeding down Hell’s highway,
Trav’ling down the broad road, with no delays.
Never ev’n thinking ‘bout eternity,
Headed for Satan’s home, of agony.
With each passing day, the road gets more wide,
It gets easier, as they take big strides.
Satan’s home of agony, is where they’ll go,
A place of horrid, eternal sorrow.
The longer on this wide road you stay,
The harder it is to go the other way.
That other road is a small, narrow path,
Leading away, from our God’s Holy wrath.
Are you trav’ling that road, where Satan leads?
Trav’ling at a rate, of increasing speed?
Satan leads just to his home of agony,
With no exit doors, for eternity.
You can change your route; go the other way,
That narrow road leads, to a blissful day.
Leading to the City, with a street of gold,
Where the glory of God, you will behold.

Satan will always guide you down the wrong road, and give you
a heavy, cumbersome load! BEWARE!!! You do NOT want to go where Satan is going!!! Rev. 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (KJV) IF you choose to follow Satan, you shall indeed go where he goes! Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (KJV) BEWARE!!!
Rebellion, links us to Satan,
This spirit is not good for man.
If you go head to head with God,
For certain you’ll lose, as you trod!
In life, do you feel insecure?
Does God seem far, and so obscure?
Satan is brilliant, and very sly!
He’ll try to keep you from God on High.
Bitterness will eat you inside,
Will cause strife, and churches divide.
Unforgiveness, hurt pride, envy,
Satan tempts; he’s your enemy!
Do you ever feel depressed?
Discouraged, gloomy, stressed?
Satan is there, when you are low,
Always there in sorrow and woe.
Nagging doubt, fear; are Satan’s tools,
He’s crafty and sharp; not a fool!
He tempts us in our weakest spot,
We must be careful, or we’re caught!
There is an answer to these things,
Rely on Christ and the grace He brings.
Satan is doomed, with Christ there,
Just call out to God in prayer.
Christ can help in all your trouble,
Just He, can burst Satan’s bubble.
Don’t try to do things on your own,
Trust Christ, and the path will be shown.

Ac.8:23; Ro.3:14; Ep.4:31; Heb.12:15)
Satan will blind you to what is true,
Making false things shine, as bright as new!
The devil is sly, he will deceive,
Makes false doctrine sound right, so you’ll receive!
Satan will subtly harden your heart,
Trying to drive you and Jesus apart!
The devil is desperate with his lies,
The harder you resist, the harder he tries!
Satan will always take right words away,
And he will give you all wrong words to say.
He’ll try to win by pure deception,
Turns you from Christ, wants your rejection!
Satan will guide you down the wrong road,
And give you a heavy, cumbersome load!
Trials and troubles, he’ll surely bring,
But, he’ll not win, if to Christ we’ll cling!
Satan will turn your friends against you,
Also your fam’ly, who were so true.
Satan hates Christ, and when Him you accept,
He’ll try to make you forget and reject!
Don’t fall into the old devil’s snare,
Turn instead, to our Saviour who cares!
Submitting to Christ, keeps Satan back,
For His Spirit keeps you on the right track!
Our dear Lord Jesus, is always near,
So, Satan’s attacks we need not fear.
God’s children have Someone, much more great!
So we need not let Satan dominate!

Satan is hard at work in the world today,
Working relentlessly, as he goes his way.
He knows our shortcomings, just where we are weak,
This is where he will hit, and havoc he’ll wreak!
He will seduce by pleasure, all he can,
Sex, sports, leisure; he’ll work on ev’ry man.
He’ll quote Scriptures, try to lead you astray,
Just as he did Christ; try your nerves to fray.
He’ll afflict the body, as he did Job,
And into our lives, most surely he’ll probe.
He’ll puff up our pride, so God won’t be pleas’d,
He’ll tempt by impure thoughts, he’ll not cease.
He’ll pluck away the seed, of God’s Good Word,
He won’t let it grow, he’ll only retard.
He’ll gravely buffet, if crisis should come,
Beating back our attempts, as if we’re a drum.
He’ll make us hypocrites, he’ll make us lie,
Also tries to get us, Christ to deny.
He’ll deceive by false doctrine, all the while,
And when he succeeds, he’ll have a great smile!
He’ll try to trap us, lay snares where we’ll trod,
Prompts to transgress the holiness of God.
He blinds men to truth, he perverts God’s Word,
Satan is strong, that is why we need the Lord!

Seven Things God Hates
There are seven things the Lord does hate,
And all these things help decide your fate.
Abominations to God, are all these,
We must obey God, and Him try to please.
God hates a proud look, and a proud heart,
We all from pride, must quickly depart.
A lying tongue, our God does despise,
Truth and honesty are good in His eyes.
Shedding innocent blood, angers God,
We must not take life, as this Earth we trod.
God loathes a heart that plans evil things,
But a kind, loving heart, God’s blessings bring.
God hates feet that are swift to do wrong,
Strive for peace and goodness, as we walk along.
‘Tis a sin, when we a false witness bear,
We must love our brother, and show we care.
God hates anyone who sows discord,
Creating strife; we cannot afford.
All these are an abomination,
All these to God are a degradation.
Upon our hearts, God’s laws we must bind,
If God’s love and peace, we are to find.
About our neck, God’s laws we must tie,
And on His goodness, we must rely.

SHE LOOKED BACK
Sodom and Gomorrah were evil towns,
On their immorality, God did frown.
Lot was warned to leave that place,
For God would destroy, it was a disgrace.
Lot gather’d his fam’ly and left that day,
“Leave, look not behind thee”, so he did obey.
Lot’s wife did not listen; she ‘looked back’,
And became a pillar of salt in her tracks.
Murder was not her sin; she just ‘looked back’,
So cunning and sly; Satan did attack!
She was not a thief; she cared not to steal,
Yet when she ‘looked back’, her heart was reveal’d.
When she ‘looked back’, it show’d her true heart,
She loved worldly ‘things’, wanted not to depart.
There’s great danger in Satan’s craftiness,
A lesson we should learn from worldliness!
Do you have a secret love for this world?
Where is your heart? as Satan’s darts are hurled?
Don’t fall victim to the world and its ‘things’,
For you will miss out on all God’s blessings.
The ‘things’ of this world are not here to stay,
Your hope and heart should be turned Heav’n’s way.
Don’t ‘look back’; keep your eyes on Christ our Lord,
Be honest and true to Him; the world discard!
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Apr.8,1997 # 320
Millions in the world today are like Lot’s wife. They too would have looked back, because they would not what to leave the things of the world behind. Where is YOUR heart?
SHOW ME THY WAYS
I lift up my heart and soul unto Thee,
Let not my enemies, triumph o’er me.
None will be ashamed, that upon You wait,
You shall usher them into, Heaven’s gate.
Show me Thy ways, teach me Thy paths,
Lead me in Thy Truth, keep me from Thy wrath,
Lord, Thou art the God, of my salvation,
How I thank You, for my preservation.
Thy loving kindness, and tender mercies,
Are there for e’er, reaching out to me.
Forgive my transgressions, for they are great,
Reach out to me in mercy, not hate.
I am Your child, O Lord, that feareth Thee,
The way that You choose, teach unto me.
I desire that my soul, at ease shall dwell,
I yearn for Heaven, I want no part of Hell.
My eyes are ever, looking toward You,
Please keep my feet, on the path right and true.
Look upon my affliction, and my pain,
Your love and mercy, to me are great gain.

Christ Jesus, our Saviour, died FOR sin,
This Man, our God, who has always been.
He paid the price we could never pay,
Redeeming our souls for that sweet day.
When we accept Christ, we die TO sin,
We’re God’s children, our new life begins!
We now have joy and peace, hope and love,
We know one day we’ll be in Heav’n above.
All unbelievers will die IN sin,
Wonderful Heaven they’ll never win.
All who reject Christ will go to Hell,
There in agony, for e’er to dwell.

This poem written after reading D.L.Moody’s words:
“Christ died FOR sin.
Believers die TO sin.
Unbelievers die IN sin.”
Sin is as a lion, from which we flee,
Satan smiles, as we pursue iniquity.
When the lion leaves us, we meet a bear,
The old devil is on the move, Beware!
We run into the house, lean on the wall,
A serpent strikes us; on the floor we fall.
Ne’er safe, sin comes from ev’ry direction,
We must be under, the Lord’s protection!
We’ll fall in a pit, when we flee from fear,
We must not forget, Christ is always near!
Coming out of the pit, we find a snare,
To the tricks of Satan, we must beware!
Satan wants us to walk, with the ungodly,
Continuing on, in iniquity.
He wants us to stand, in the sinner’s way,
And sit proud with the scornful, ev’ry day.
Many from the Lord, their ways try to hide,
All goodness and grace of God, are denied.
All their works are done, in darkness so deep,
“Who’ll see us?” they say, as thru’ filth they creep.
Ev’ry work into judgment, God shall bring,
Whether good or bad, ev’ry secret thing!
Sin . . . we must consider, so carefully,
Satan means Hell; Christ, life eternally!

SIN’S CHAIN BROKEN
Satan’s chain is broken; I’m set free,
Christ accomplished this great victory.
He washed my sinful soul white as snow,
As His precious Blood from the Cross did flow.
Sin’s chain is broken; I’m no longer bound,
Thanks be to Christ Jesus, Him I found!
He’s there for ev’ry one, day or night,
Christ is the answer; no matter your plight.
Does Satan have you bound, by sin’s chain?
Just Christ can free you; it’s true and plain.
Open your heart’s door, and let Him in,
He’ll cleanse you from all your evil sin.
Christ can break sin’s chain, and set you free,
Christ can grant this wondrous victory.
Christ can give you a mansion on high,
Where you’ll live for ever, by and by.

SO FAR AWAY
Jesus is God’s only, begotten Son,
As for sin and wickedness, He had none!
As for me, I am so, so far away,
Vile sin is with me, ev’ry single day.
So far away, from Jesus’ righteousness,
I cannot see, how the Father can bless.
But in God’s Son Jesus, I do believe,
When God looks down on me, me He receives.
So far away, from Jesus’ purity,
Dark, dirty sin is my worst enemy.
But when in God’s Son Jesus, I have faith,
When God sees me, He gives vic’try o’er death.
So far away, from Jesus’ holiness,
My stubborn sins continue, I confess.
But when in God’s Son Jesus, I do trust,
Confessing those stubborn sins, is a must.
To be like Jesus, seems so far away,
I struggle with sin, with each passing day.
I look to the day, I can be like Him,
But that day seems so far away, so dim.
No matter how good, that you think you are,
From the Lord Jesus, you are very far.
We must look ahead, to the coming day,
When all sin will be gone, far, far away!

Jesus, sinless: (Isa.53:9; Mat.27:4,19,23-24; Jn.8:46; Lk.23:41,47; 2 Cor.5:21; Heb.4:15; 7:26-27; 1 Pet.2;22; 1 Jn.2:1; 3:5).
New bodies: (1 Cor.15:22-58)
1 Cor. 15:51-52 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (KJV) . . . Incorruptible = no more sin! We will have sinless bodies like Jesus.
Phil.3:20-21 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. (KJV)
So many consider this Earth, as home,
As wildly and recklessly, they do roam.
They ne’er think, they’ll live eternally,
So they just continue on, sinfully.
So many, not once, consider our Lord,
They don’t believe the Bible, is God’s Word.
Selfish they are, “What can I do for me?”
Greedily they lust, for pleasure and money.
So many think, they will avoid God’s wrath,
As they continue, on that big, broad path.
They ne’er think, that God will cast them to Hell,
So many think, that all in Heav’n will dwell.
So many false doctrines, are taught today,
Wolves in sheep’s clothing, stalking for new prey.
People reject, and against God rebel,
They refuse to believe, He will cast them to Hell.
God cannot lie, but so many won’t believe,
Most will do nothing, His grace to receive.
Believe on Christ, eternal life you gain,
Reject Christ, you shall experience Hell’s pain.
So many reject Jesus, are you one?
Heav’n can be achieved, ONLY by God’s Son!
Jesus is the Way, He holds Heav’n’s ONE key,
Belief in Him gives life, eternally.

So oft I think of the mansions, reserved in Heaven above,
Then I think of my manner; selfish, unkind and lack of love.
So oft I think of the river of life, flowing from God’s Throne,
Then I think of me and realize, I can’t make it there alone.
Lord Jesus I know, there is no righteousness at all in me,
That would ever gain me a place with You, in eternity.
I humbly confess, from deep in my soul . . . a sinner am I,
And I know in my heart, that only on you can I rely.
You have the only key to that mansion, so far up yonder,
So oft I think of this, as on Heaven’s beauty I ponder.
I praise Your amazing grace, and Your awesome love for me,
Love so marvelous and abundant, You died on Calvary’s tree.

And You are there to help in every way, and only You can save.

You may not have another tomorrow. Do NOT put off salvation.
Without Christ, only an eternal agony in Hell awaits!
SOME OTHER DAY
I’ll do those good deeds, some other day,
Too many anxious cares in the way.
I’ll call on the one who feels hurt or low,
When my trials pass, and all my woe.
Some other day, I will show mercy,
Good works I will do, and charity.
Compassion I’ll show to one who mourns,
Some other day, when I’m not forlorn.
Some other day, I’ll help one in need,
Be kind and loving; do a good deed.
Say a kind word to one who does cry,
Some other day, in the by and by.
If we wait to do good to those around,
God’s blessings to us will not abound.
God may wait until some other day,
To send His wondrous blessings your way!

Some things that I do, displease You,
Lord, help me to live a life right and true.
Let me think of You, before I act,
Guide me Lord, that I go the right track.
Some things I say, disturb You I know,
And hold back blessings, You could bestow.
Lord, help me to think before I speak,
Help me Lord, Your righteousness to seek.
Some things that I think, are wickedness,
Lord, help me live a life, You will bless.
Help me keep wrong, evil thoughts away,
Assist me Lord, each and ev’ry day.
Some things that I feel, deep in my heart,
Are things I regret, and wish would depart.

Can you relate to this? I can! Things that I think
and feel are my most common sins.
Satan tries to play havoc with me,
Intruding on my serenity.
He comes at me, from ev’ry which way,
Trying to chase joy and peace away.
Sometimes I feel doubt, start to creep in,
O Lord, I know that doubt is a sin.
Your ev’ry Word is Truth, I can trust,
Submitting to You Lord, is a must.
Sometimes anger, tries to take control,
I know that patience, should be in my soul.
Malice and revenge, is not good at all,
When anger steps in, on You I must call.
Sometimes tho’ I try not, I worry,
Then try so hard to set my mind free.
I know I should give my worry to You,
Help me to trust You, each day anew.
Sometimes bad thoughts, creep into my head,
And always they give me, so much dread.
In my heart I know, I should do right,
But Satan is there, causing a fight.
Sometimes I feel envy, also pride,
These sinful things, I must set aside.
Coveting displeases You, this I know,
I need Your help, as thru’ life I go.
Sometimes it’s hard to imagine why,
You claim me as Yours, and don’t deny.
It’s then that I praise You and Your Son,
For all Your love, and all that You’ve done.

Beware of Satan! He never stops trying.
STILL A SINNER
Before I knew Jesus, sin did abound,
Selfish pleasure and evil could be found.
Sin was rampant, all I thought of was me,
The old devil was with me, quite happy.
I went to church, it was the thing to do,
God’s child? No! but a hypocrite true.
Did I please God? No! I pleased me instead,
But random thoughts of Hell, caused me dread.
Thru’ the years I’d hear words, of Heav’n and Hell,
I’d think “Tis Heav’n where I want to dwell.”
I didn’t want to go, where Satan went,
Where demons and evil people would be sent.
Agaian and again, Jesus’ knock I’d hear,
But I just kept on in sin, having no fear.
Why should I change? my life made me happy,
But Jesus kept knocking, more frequently.
It took quite a while, to open my heart’s door,
When I did, abundant blessings did pour.
The grace of God was then made known to me,
Faith as a mustard seed, had brought vict’ry.
When I accepted Christ, my sins were forgiv’n,
And I was assured a “mansion” in Heav’n.
I’m still a sinner, but forgiv’n am I,
For I no longer, my Saviour deny!

We will still be capable of sin, until we receive our new bodies (Phip.3:20-21).
We will sin, even though we do not want to. Rom 7:14-20 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. (KJV) . . . If the Godly apostle Paul had trouble with sin, we can be sure that we will also. The struggle of a saved soul will continue as long as we live this life on Earth. I really feel for the apostle Paul. I know exactly how he felt! I feel this way every time I do or say some wrong, hateful, sinful, evil thing! I simply cannot seem to do the good I want to do, but the bad things I don’t want to do, that’s what I end up doing. This to me is a comforting verse. If a godly man like Paul had this much trouble, I know I am not alone.
Stop me from doing what I would do,
Lord, let me always depend on You.
Don’t ever let me go off half cock’d,
For the result may leave me in shock.
Stop me from going against Your will,
Would You with Your Holy Spirit fill.
I pray that I always please You lord,
Let me serve You in willing accord.
Stop me when I get too rush’d to pray,
Help me to chase all worries away.
In Your Hand, let me put my concerns,
When I’m troubl’d, let me to You turn.
Stop me when I think I know it all,
Keep Your foolish child, from a great fall.
Such a mistake, is all vanity,
Lord, let me always look first to Thee.
Stop me when I think I know what’s best,
Let me instead with Your wisdom be bless’d.
For all my foolishness, please forgive me,
Let me do Your will, Lord, willingly!

SUBMIT TO HIM
Submit to His grace, and He will save you,
Christ Jesus is trustworthy, and so true.
We must have faith, believe and accept,
Then from eternal Hell, Christ will protect.
Submit to His pow’r, and be kept by it,
By the constant abiding of His Spirit.
The pow’r of Jesus, can lead, teach and guide,
What an awesome feeling, as He resides.
Submit to Jesus, and walk in His light,
He will sustain, and keep you in His might.
Ev’n in the darkest night, Jesus can lead,
But by His wise guidance, we must always heed.
Submit to the Saviour, and Him obey,
Trust and obedience, is a must each day.
If we don’t obey, we simply don’t love,
And it’s doubtful we’ll see, Heav’n above.
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Dec.25, 2002, #934
If you say you love Him, you must trust and obey.
For the endless bliss of Heav’n, is reached, by no other way.
Superficial fellowship is what God does hate,
The eternal fire of Hell, will be your only fate.
You can’t hide anything from God, He knows it all,
Don’t think He’s a fool, or you’re speeding for a fall.
God loves all His children, each and ev’ry single one,
All those who are true, to His only beloved Son.
He will ne’er leave us, nor will He forsake,
Being faithful to Christ Jesus, won’t e’er be a mistake.
Do you turn tail and run, when troubles come your way?
Or do you hold tight to His Hand, throughout each new day?
When you doubt God, you are saying you don’t trust Him,
And your chances of reaching Him in pray’r, truly are dim.
Dipping your toes in the water, is not swimming,
You must commit your all to Christ, to receive any blessing.
Keeping any part of you back, simply won’t do,
Committing your all, is what He expects of you.
Here today, gone tomorrow, is not His desire,
He doesn’t want a cold heart, but one that’s on fire.

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!

Talking The Talk
There are multitudes, who talk the talk,
But so very few, who walk the walk.
So many, their love for Christ profess,
But in their hearts, Christ, they do not possess.
“I’m a Christian,” many people say,
Yet they live in sin, ev’ry single day.
They talk the talk, without hesitation,
But they don’t walk the walk, to salvation.
Walking the walk, is not easy to do,
And it is only done, by a few.
But ev’n the faithful, sometimes backslide,
So we must stay close, and in Him abide.
Many hypocrites, in the world today,
They say they love God, but never obey.
They walk on roads, where they should not go,
As they speed downward, to Hell’s sorrow.
Do you walk the walk, or just talk the talk?
Do you obey the Lord, or do you balk?
Just talking the talk, will get you to Hell,
And there for e’er, in agony you’ll dwell.
We must walk the walk, and the Lord obey,
Heav’n cannot be reached, by any other way.
Trust and obey, believe God’s Word so clear,
If you want His eternal Presence near.

Tell it to Jesus, When you’re weary and groan,

Tell it to Jesus, when sorrow o’er flows,
Tremendous comfort to you, He will show.
Tell it to Jesus, be it day or night,
When trouble is near, and no help is in sight.
Tell it to Jesus, when you have much grief,
His impressive pow’r, brings great relief.
Tell it to Jesus, when you’re laden with pain,
His abundant mercy, is such great gain.
Tell it to Jesus, when conflict abounds,
In Him unspeakable peace can be found.
Tell it to Jesus, when worry brings stress,
Love, mercy and grace are ways He does bless.
Tell it to Jesus, when depression sets in,
Don’t doubt, but trust God, for worry is sin.
When you tell it to Jesus, things go right,
Follow Him closely, walking in His light.
When you tell it to Jesus, He will bless,
Serenity abounds; peace you possess.

THE ROAD TO HELL
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.

Mt.7:13-14; 8:12; 22:13; 25:41; 1 P.4:17-18)
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.

My friend, Hell will be eternal dread.
This life on Earth is where we decide,
The eternal place where we’ll reside.

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.

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!

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!

You Ain’t Got A Chance
Without Jesus, you ain’t got a chance,
For in the Lake of Fire, you shall prance!
Without Christ, you CANNOT avoid Hell,
It’s for certain, there you shall dwell!
You ain’t got a chance, without the Lord,
It’s so plainly stated, in His Word.
Christ is the only One, with a key,
To Heaven, and life eternally!
You ain’t got a chance, no how, no way,
To reach Heaven’s gate, on any day!
You must have Christ Jesus, in your heart,
No other way, will Satan depart!
You ain’t got a chance, to reach Heaven’s shore,
Unless Jesus, you truly adore!
There is no other name, God has given,
That anyone could call on, to reach Heaven!
We ain’t got a chance, not you, not me,
We must have Christ, to live eternally!
Just Jesus can get us, to Heaven above,
Just Jesus can save us, with His love.

YOUR THRONE OF GRACE
Your Throne of Grace, I’d dare not approach,
For my sins are to You, a horrid reproach.
But my loving Saviour, made a way,
For me to come to You, night or day.
I now can approach, Your wondrous Throne,
For Christ Jesus, my sins did atone.
I now can come to You, with no fear,
And I know my pray’r, You’ll surely hear.
Your Throne, Father, what an awesome Place,
Where You bless us, with Your amazing grace.
You always have time to hear my plea,
No matter my plight, You always hear me.
Your Throne of Grace, gives me joy down deep,
Your mercy and love, I covet and keep.
The peace I have, deep inside my soul,
Comes from knowing, You are in control.
Humbly I come to Your Throne of Grace,
My sinfulness, makes me hide my face.
Dear Lord, so holy and pure are You,
I’m so unworthy, of Your love so true.
Great love on Your children, You bestow,
As we walk here, on this Earth below.
A blessing, and a privilege indeed,
From Your Throne of Grace, grand things proceed.
For Your grand love, I’ll praise You each day,
And thank You, that You won’t turn away.
I’m truly grateful, for Your Throne of Grace,
Indeed it is, a most awesome Place!

Time I've wasted, is a huge regret,
And lustful sin, I cannot forget.
When I think about, things I have done,
My heart weeps, and I just want to run.
There's a high wall, between God and me,
When with His will, I refuse to agree.
I run and run, with no place to hide,
Help me dear Lord, with You to abide.
Then reality hit me, in the face,
My sins against God, were a disgrace.
All past memories, rush thru' my head,
Pain I feel is clear, by tears I shed.
To receive God's mercy, we must obey,
My friend, there is simply, no other way.
Trust AND obey, is what we must do,
To receive that wondrous grace, from You.
Dear one, have you faced reality?
Have you e'er thought 'bout eternity?
Have you regretted, sins you have done?
Does your heart weep, and you just want to run?
Does past wickedness, rush to your head?
Is pain revealed, by tears that you shed?
God's mercy is there, for you and me,
And His Gift of salvation, is FREE!
Turn to Christ this day, 'fore it's too late,
For He has the only key, to Heav'n's Gate.
Just two roads lead, to eternity,
Heaven OR Hell, which one will it be?

WELL OF WICKEDNESS
Satan has a well of wickedness,
And he, in no way, tries to repress.
From this deep well, evil overflows,
Helping the weeds and tares to grow.
His well of wickedness; always there,
From which evil is spread, with much to spare.
Satan, at his job, works very hard,
He sows and waters, is always on gurard.
His well of wickedness, never runs dry,
And any and all, for it qualify.
He is in control of wickedness,
The absolute ruler of all darkness.
His well of wickedness, day and night,
We are at war; ‘tis an awful fright.
He transforms his evil to look righteous,
Don’t let him fool you, for it’s spurious.
His well of wickedness, looks so pure,
Making evil and wrong seem obscure.
Only Christ Jesus can set you straight,
Guiding you on course for Heaven’s Gate!

BEWARE of Satan!!!
WERE YOU THERE??
He came from Heav’n, many years ago,
To this Earth, for blessings to bestow.
The greatest blessing He e’er did give,
He died for us all, that we might live.
As our Saviour struggled to that hill,
Death awaited Him; for they would kill.
Such an innocent One, and so pure,
On that Cross, OUR death, He did endure.
Were you there? those many years ago?
As His precious Blood from Him did flow?
For the sins of the world, He did die,
He died that we might live; you and I.
Were you there? as He cried in agony?
“My God, why have you forsaken me?”
On OUR sins, God had turned His back,
But Christ persever’d in that time so black.
I was there; MY sins put Him on that tree,
My precious Saviour, did die for ME.
He paid the price, only He could pay,
That all who believe, will go Heav’n’s way.

He died on the cross for MY sins, so yes, I was there.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
Are you careless, as you live your life?
Are your days filled, with worry and strife?
Does your daily stress, keep stacking high?
Do you, God’s love, reject and deny?
Do you say “yes” when you should say “no”?
Do you insist on, ‘going with the flow’?
Do sin and evil, seem right to you?
Do you have any morals, or virtue?
Are you ‘hooked’ on drugs, or cigarettes?
Does booze enslave you, and you not regret?
Do you covet, what your neighbor owns?
Do you turn away, when right is shown?
If you persist, and sin continue,
The beauty of Heav’n, you shall not view!
The glist’ning walls, and street of gold,
My friend, you will never, ever behold!
If sin and Satan has you firmly bound,
You are doomed, unless Christ is found!
Only Christ from sin, can set you free,
And just He can give life, eternally!
What about you, as you ponder this day?
Will you ever see Heav’n’s glorious display?
Or are you walking that road, big and wide?
That leads to Hell, where most will reside?
In Heav’n, or in Hell, what about you?
Thoughts of eternity, most don’t pursue!
Have you considered eternity?
You decide: Heav’n’s bliss, or hell’s agony!

WHAT DOES GOD HATE??
Did you ever wonder? “What does God hate?”
His Word will tell us, and tell us straight.
Idols are an abomination,
Cursed are they; no matter the nation!
Sacrificing children, kindles God’s wrath,
In days of old, or on today’s path.
Abortion is selfish sacrifice,
Taking that life, friend, you’ll pay the price!
Witchcraft, horoscopes, and divination,
All to God are degradation.
Fortune tellers, and necromancers,
Are hated by our Heav’nly Father.
Homosexuals, and sodomy,
Are hated by God, in great degree.
Sodom and Gomorrah, God did destroy,
For these wicked evils, they did employ.
Cheating, pride, murder, discord, and lies,
Stubbornness too, our God does despise.
Offerings of the wicked, God does hate,
Wickedness, of all rulers, so great.
He that justifieth the wicked,
Are abominable, His Word has said.
Too, if someone does condemn the just,
God hates and looks on them with disgust.
Mocking God’s prophets, and God’s One Son,
Brings down God’s wrath, when Jesus you shun.
God’s great wrath will abide upon you,
Only Christ from that wrath can rescue,

WHAT WILL CHRIST JUDGE
What will be judged at Christ’s Judgment Seat?
When this special day our Saviour we meet.
We’ll receive rewards; OR we’ll suffer loss,
Did we preach Christ, and His death on the Cross?
How did we treat the family of God?
Did we love , and assist, as this Earth we trod?
Did we use our talents, be they large or small?
We ALL have a ‘gift’, to profit withall.
Do we wisely spend the time God does give?
Or walk about as fools, as we do live?
It is HOW we run our race that will count,
Service to Christ, will be held in account.
How faithful are we to the Word of God?
And how faithful to His flock, as we trod?
We’re ALL evangelists for our Lord,
Tell of Christ Jesus; some may not have heard.
How do we use words, do we speak in vain?
Words can give comfort, or cause so much pain.
Words that come from our mouth, reveal our heart,
God wishes that we from sin would depart.
Just what motive, makes you serve the Lord?
Do you serve Him in love and willing accord?
OR do you serve to receive glory and fame?
Christ knows your heart; you’ll suffer loss and shame.
Are you ready for this soon to come day?
Do you in your life, Christ Jesus obey?
We’ll meet our Saviour, and Judge, face to face,
Will your life please Him, or be a disgrace?

WHAT WILL I SAY???
What will I say, to the Almighty Judge?
When on His decisions, He won’t budge?
I can beg and cry, and for mercy plead,
But it’ll be too late, my words He won’t heed.
Just what will I say, at the Judgment Seat?
When the All-knowing Judge I finally meet?
I know He’ll have records of all I’ve done,
I won’t put anything o’er, God’s own Son.
He’ll know about the things, I did not do,
And He’ll know about, the wrongs I did too.
Rewards or loss of rewards, will come my way,
As I consider this, what will I say?
I must NOW really think, of how I live,
I must confess my sins, so God can forgive.
I must walk with Christ, on the narrow path,
I must live righteous, to avoid God’s wrath.
NOW is when I should think, of the Judgment Seat,
For one day soon, the Great Judge I’ll meet.
Will He be pleased, with my service to Him?
What will I say, on this day O so grim?
I will be judged, on all works I have done,
When I come Face to face, with God’s own Son.
All His judgments will be righteous and just,
What will I say, to my Lord whom I trust?
Soon in the future, will come Judgment Day,
I have no idea, of what I will say.
I look to this day with uneasiness,
I must live my life, so my Lord will bless.

WHEN I CONSIDER . . .
When I consider, all the wrong I’ve done,
I’m in no way worthy, of God’s own Son.
Yet His amazing love is there for me,
Forgiving my sins, and setting me free.
The devil had me; I was tied and bound,
Because the love of Christ, I had not found.
I would hear Him knock, and turn a deaf ear,
“Live righteously,” I did not want to hear.
I was stone deaf, and completely blind,
Christ was the last One, I had on my mind.
With my immoral ways, I was at ease,
And with my wickedness, Satan, I did please.
I often think, of those days in the past,
When Christ, from me, I did utterly cast.
I’m in no way worthy, of God’s own Son,
When I consider, all the wrong I’ve done.
But, our Lord abounds in love and mercy,
And He ne’er gave up, on the likes of me.
My evil, sinful past, He did forgive,
Gave me His Spirit, within me to live.
My precious Lord, and His amazing grace,
Always there for me, as I run my race.
He picks me up, when I stumble and fall,
And always answers, when on Him I call.
Does all the wrong you’ve done, cause you shame?
Did you consider, calling on Christ’s Name?
If you believe in faith, He will set you free.
And you’ll live with Him in Heav’n, eternally!

WHEN I LOOK BACK
Some of the ‘things’ I did, and I said,
When I look back; they cause me great dread!
I can’t see, how God put up with me,
Yet He gave me life, eternally!
When I look back, at how I lived then,
Sinning; over and over again!
So willing and shameless, I had no fear,
Of the awesome God, who was so near!
I “practiced” sin and iniquity,
Not knowing ‘that’ made God my Enemy!
When I look back, I really didn’t care,
Yet my precious Lord, was always there!
Then one day I thought: “I could go to Hell,
And there in agony, I could dwell!”
I then answered the ‘knock’ at my heart’s door,
Jesus came in! with His love, and more!
What a wonderful day that was for me,
After all those years, that from Him I did flee!
He forgave ALL my sins of wickedness,
And ev’ry day since, my life He does bless!
I regret ev’ry one, of those wasted years,
When I look back, I shed many tears.
Don’t you make the same mistake, I pray!
Open the door, to Jesus today!

WHERE WILL YOU GO?
When you leave this earth, where will you go?
The Bible tells you, IF you want to know.
It’s clearly in there, in black and white,
The answer is in there, in plain sight!
God the Father lives, in Heaven above,
Our Mighty God, who is filled with love.
He sent His Son, to save you and me,
To arrange for us, life eternally!
To go on this trip, you must believe,
And in faith, Jesus you must receive.
You must trust and obey Him, ev’ry hour,
If you want His ne’er ending power!
You cannot work for, or buy this trip,
It’s FREE, no charge, let me give you this tip.
By faith are you saved, and by God’s grace,
And one sweet day, you shall see Jesus’ Face!
A horrid place, is the lake of Fire,
And going there, is NO one’s desire.
This is the second place, you could go,
To the fiery pits, so far below!
When you leave this Earth, where will you go?
The Bible tells us, IF we want to know.
We must trust and obey, the Son of God,
And follow His footsteps, as we trod!
Each of us has, a decision to make,
Two roads are before us, which will we take?
The small one leads to eternal life,
The broad one, to Hell’s eternal strife!
We must choose our, eternal destiny.
Heaven’s bliss, or Hell’s horrid agony.
Each of these places, are for e’er more,
I pray you choose, Heaven’s restful shore!

WHO ARE THE ‘WICKED’?
Just who is ‘wicked’ in God’s eyes?
ANYONE, who will Jesus deny!
ALL who refuse to believe God,
ALL who think Jesus is a fraud.
MOST don’t consider themselves ‘wicked’,
But without Christ, they are as dead.
Spiritually dead, in God’s eyes,
Doomed to Hell in the by and by.
Thoughts of the ‘wicked’ God does hate,
He is far from them, shutting the gate.
He won’t accept their sacrifice,
All that they offer, He denies!
Prayer from the ‘wicked’ WON’T be heard,
Tho’ they speak, with wondrous words.
He will hide His eyes, turn His back,
For it is Jesus, whom they lack!
If you reject Christ, God’s own Son,
To God, you are ‘wicked’, and He’ll shun.
Your unbelief calls God a liar,
And you are headed, for Hell-fire.
The greatest sin is unbelief,
Unless you change, you’ll have much grief.
Turn to Jesus, trust Him today,
He’s God’s own Son; He’s the ONLY Way!

WHO IS DOOMED TO HELL?
Does God’s Word state, who’s doomed to Hell?
Friend, over and over, it does tell.
Except that a man be ‘born again’,
He’ll not see Heaven; ‘tis very plain!
You must be born into God’s family,
And from all sin you must want to flee.
All that love God, are begotten of Him,
You must obey, or Heaven is dim.
The Gospel of our Lord, you must obey,
Or vengeance will fall on Judgment Day.
Eternal separation, God will give,
In Hell, for eternity, you will live.
If you choose this day not to know God,
Rejecting salvation, as you trod,
The ‘Day’ will come, God won’t want you near,
Your cries of pure agony, He won’t hear.
Our life here on Earth is very fleet,
One day soon, Almighty God we’ll meet!
When He does issue your last decree,
Will it be: “HELL FOR ETERNITY”?

Lord, You clearly state who that will be,

We must walk uprightly, on our path,
If we are to avoid, Your righteous wrath.
We must work righteousness, as we go,
Or Your displeasure, will cause us sorrow.
We must speak the Truth, we must not lie,
Or on Your blessings, we cannot rely.
Our tongue must not blaspheme, or backbite,
Our speech should always, be good and upright.
To our neighbor, we must do no wrong,
O Lord, Your Words on this, are quite strong.
We must not take reproach, to those around,

I should try to be like my dear Lord,
I know I should live as He says in His Word.
But each day I fall short, and I do sin,
Why do I let Satan continue to win?
Instead of sharp angry words that cause strife,
I should speak e’er lovingly in my life!
Instead of many frowns, and those harsh stares,
I should always smile, and show others I care.
Instead of looking for faults in others,
I should look for good in my brothers.
Instead of thinking or doing mean things,
I should show deep love, and happiness bring.

I’d understand, if You’d turn away,

I want out of sin’s captivity.
Present within me, is wickedness,
Lord help me instead, to have blessedness.
On my own, I can do nothing at all,

WHY WOULD HE SPARE YOU??
If God spared not the angels that did sin,
But cast them to Hades; all chained within.
Reserved in the darkness; judgment to wait,
Why would He spare you? for His Son you do hate.
If God spared not the old world, way back then,
But brought a flood, where the ungodly had been.
Saved just Noah’s family, out of respect,
Why would He spare you? for His Son you reject.
If God spared not Sodom and Gomorrha,
But turned them to ashes from brimstone and fire.
Made them an example, to not live in sin,
Why would He spare you? for His Son you won’t win.
God won’t spare filthy dreamers of today,
That preach Heaven by some other way.
And the ones that listen, and take it all in,
Won’t be spared either, for it’s all sin!
God made just one Way of salvation for man,
We must BELIEVE Him; accept His only plan!
God sent His own Son to take away our sin,
Unless you believe and accept Christ; you can’t win!

(2 P.2;4-9; 1 P.4:17-18; Jn.3:15-18,36; 8:24; 14:6)
Without Jesus, I’d not have forgiveness,
And I’d die in my sins and wickedness.
Without Jesus, God would not justify,
I’d be God’s enemy, me He’d deny.
Without Jesus, I’d have no strength at all,
Flat on my face, day after day, I’d fall.
Without Jesus, I’d have no love in my heart,
And from pride and greed, I’d not depart.
Without Jesus, Satan would have pow’r o’er me,
Sins would run rampant, I’d not have vic’try.
Without Jesus, I’d go to deep, dark Hell,
And there for eternity, I would dwell.
Without Jesus, I’d not have any hope,
Like a blind man, in a strange place, I’d grope.
Without Jesus, I’d never, be God’s child,
I’d be with the devil, in agony.
Without Jesus, troubles would take control,
With Him, I have peace, it’s well with my soul.
Without Jesus, sorrow would make me grieve,
With Him, He will never forsake or leave.
Without Jesus, the world takes hold of me,
With Him, treasures I store, in eternity.
Without Jesus, I would never have peace,
With Him, doubt, stress and worry, find release.
Without Jesus, Heav’n would never be mine,
With Him, that golden street, one day I’ll find.
Without Jesus, no mansion would await,
With Him, He’ll open wide for me, Heav’n’s gate!

WHY DO I FAIL YOU
I know I should not worry or fear,
I should trust You, for I know You are near.
E’er so subtly, Satan tempts me,
And I fail You, and lose victory.
Why do I fail You, as oft’ as I do?
Why can’t I trust, obey and be true?
Why do I to wickedness, give in?
When I know in my heart, You hate sin!
I know doubt should not enter my mind,
I know to Satan, I should be blind.
Yet sometimes I do doubt my place in Heav’n,
And doubt that all my sins are forgiv’n.
Lord, over and over, You I fail,
My correcting it, is to no avail.
Without You, Lord, I can’t do a thing.
Your help and wisdom, are true blessings.
I know that within me, no good thing dwells,
On my own, no evil can I quell.
The good that I should do, I do not do,
But evil I don’t want, bursts on thru’.
All the things that I hate, that do I,
On my own Lord, I can’t qualify.
My old nature wars, with the new me,
O Lord, free me from sin’s captivity.
A truly, woeful and wretched man, that’s me,
On my own, I cannot have victory.
Lord Jesus, how I do thank You this day,
Just You can keep me on that narrow way.
Lord Jesus, let Your light shine on my path,
I know just You can keep me from God’s wrath.
I truly thank You for what You have done,
I’m grateful I have trusted God’s own Son.

Worry won’t make problems go away,
It just brings stress to burden your day.
Worry puts nagging doubts in your mind,
Peace you long for is then hard to find.
We are told “Be anxious for nothing,”
To obey these words, brings a blessing.
We should always trust in His Holy Name,
Doubting Christ, will always bring shame.
We should place our worries in Christ’s Hands,
And on His Promises, firmly stand.
He promises all our burdens to share,
This wondrous Saviour, who truly cares.
Worry leads to stress, stress leads to doubt,
Ask Jesus to cast the devil out.
Worry can clearly consume your thoughts,
You don’t want in this trap to be caught.
Worry reduces your faith and trust,
These to our Lord, is simply a must.
Worry will never do any good,
‘Tis something that should be understood.
Those who depend on God, He won’t neglect,
His e’er watchful eye will always protect.
One day at a time, for He will aid,
We need not worry or be afraid.

Mt.6:25-34; Mt.11:28-30; Luke 12:29; Phil.4:6; 1 Pet.5:7.
I have a deep, scary feeling, way down deep, about how many people refuse to listen to God and His Word. I have studied the Bible for many years, and I know what it says about Hell. BEWARE!!!
Have You E’er Thought About Hell?
Have you ever, really thought about Hell?
This place, where one day, millions shall dwell?
We should be burden’d, by this horrid place,
Where no one will e’er see, God’s gracious Face!
Have you e’er really thought, about Hell’s fires?
Eternal fires, that will never expire?
Have you e’er thought, these fires have been prepar’d?
For the devil, and all who his evils share?
Have you ever wondered, where can hell be?
This prepared place, for all eternity?
The center of the Earth, is what some think,
Where e’er it is, there’s no water to drink!
Have you e’er thought, about the darkness of Hell?
Deep, scary blackness, where evil ones dwell?
Have you e;er thought, that black too was prepar’d?
And will by all who God condemns, be shar’d?
Have you e’er thought, to Hell I don’t want to go?
This everlasting place, far, far below?
Move off that broad road, to the narrow path,
This will remove you, from God’s holy wrath!
That narrow path of light, will to Heav’n lead!
If to God’s Word, you will only pay heed!
To Heav’n or Hell, just two places to go,
Heav’n’s bliss, or Hell’s eternal sorrow!
CHOOSE THE RIGHT ONE!

ETERNAL FIRES of HELL: (Deut.32:22; Isa.33:14; Mat.3:12; 5:22; 13:42; 25:41,50; Mk.9:43,45,47; Lk.16:19-31; Jam.3:6; Rev.14:10-11; 20:10-11,14; 21:8).
OUTER DARKNESS: (Mat 8:12; 22:13; 25:30; 2 Thes.1:9 [no God, no light]; 2 Pet.2:4,17; Jude 1:6,13).
GOD’S LOVE: (Mat,18:14; 21:37; Mk.12:6; Jn.3:16; 14:21; 16:27; 17:23; Rom.5:5,8; 8:32,38-39; 2 Cor.13:14; Eph.2:4-5; 2 Thes.2:16; Tit.3:4; Heb.12:6; 1 Jn.3:1; 4:9,16,19) GRACE OF GOD: (Rom.1:7; 3:21-26; 5:2,15; 6:14; 15:8-12; 16:20; 1 Cor.1:4; 3:10; 15:10; 2 Cor.1:12,20; 6:1; 8:1; 9:14; 13:14; Gal.2:21; Eph.2:8-9; 3:2,7; Col.1:6; 1 Thes.1:1; 2 Thes.1:12; Tit.2:11;) HEAVEN: (Jn.14:1-6; 1 Pet.1:3-5; Rev.21) PATH of LIGHT: (Ps.119:105; Mat.4:16; 5:14,16; Jn.1:5; 8:12; 12:35; Eph.6:14; Jam.1:17; 1 Pet.2:9; Jn.1:7; Rev.21:23)
My personal thoughts about Hell
We made a trip to Yellowstone a while back. Beautiful country up there! We never did get to see Old Faithful, because the roads were all tore up, being repaired, and neither of us are capable of walking.
There were hot springs everywhere. I want to comment on one thing that we saw . . . that being the boiling water in several places. I took pictures. It actually was scary to say the least! I was amazed. It certainly made us think! That hot water had to come from heat beneath the Earth, a volcano! I searched to find out more on volcanoes. There are volcanoes in every part of the Earth!
Now, considering this fact . . . consider just how many hot springs there are in the world, and then consider how many volcanoes there are all over the world.
What I am trying to get across to you is just how many hot springs and volcanoes there are all over the world. Where are they? Beneath the ground, in the center of the Earth. So . . . what does it look like down there? I would want to say that God tells us in every Passage in the Bible that speaks of Hell and the lake of fire! It is only common sense to think that Hell is in the center of the Earth. And thinking how large the Earth is, it is only common sense to think that Hell will indeed be large enough to house all the wicked of the world. (Isa.5:14; 14:9; 30:33; Pro.27:20; Eze.32:21; Hab.2:5; Mat.7:13; Rev.20:13-15).
PLEASE, SERIOUSLY CONSIDER WHAT THE BIBLE STATES ABOUT HELL!
You do NOT want to go there!
EVERLASTING FIRE. Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: [KJV] Jesus' Words.
EVERLASTING BURNINGS. Isaiah 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? [KJV]
A FURNACE OF FIRE. Matthew 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. [KJV] Jesus' Words.
OUTER DARKNESS. Matthew 22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. [KJV] Jesus' Words.
Matthew 25:30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. [KJV] Jesus' Words.
SO . . . how do we reconcile these two things? In reality fire and darkness are opposites! In my mind, they can be reconciled! When we consider just how large this Earth is, and when we consider the center of the Earth, it too is massive. It seems to me that there are many, many caves down there just as there are here on the Earth, and they would indeed be dark, just like the caves here. Anyone who has ever been in a cave, knows just how dark they can be. There is not a bit of light, it is pitch dark, black as can be! On the other hand, there are fires everywhere else down there from the volcanoes. When I think of Hell, this is what comes to my mind.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)
