Our Journey In This Life
AN OPEN DOOR
Revelation 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. (KJV)
An open door stands, wide open to you,
Will your faith allow you, to walk thru’?
Or will you turn away, because of fear?
When to the Promised land, you are so near?
Fear or faith, which will it be for you?
Will you walk away, or walk boldly thru’?
The Promised Land, is on the other side,
Where we can in peace, and comfort abide.
Your enemies, God shall expel from your sight,
When we trust God in faith, He makes things right.
The Promised Land, God says we can possess,
If thru’ that open door, we do access.
That we love the Lord God, we must take heed,
Trusting Him in faith, is our greatest deed!
Backing away in fear, taking the wrong path,
Does sadden His Heart, and brings on His wrath!
Going thru’ that open door, brings good things,
God opens His warehouse, of grand blessings.
To turn and run away, is a bad mistake,
Fear causes you, the Lord to forsake.
Eyes of faith, eyes of fear, which will it be?
Have you e’er considered, eternity?
Faith in God brings you, to the Promised Land,
Fear brings only Hell, God’s reprimand!

Promised Land: (Ex.12:25; Num.14:34; Deut.6:3; 9:28; 19:8; 27:3; Josh.22:4; 23:5,11,15; Neh.9:23; Heb.11:9)
Open Door: (Job 38:17; Ps.78:23; 1 Cor.16:9; 2 Cor.2:12; Col.4:3; Rev.3:8,20; 4:1). Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. (KJV)
AS I JOURNEY
As I journey, thru’ this world of sin,
Jesus gives me vict’ry, I know I’ll win.
He paid the price, He redeemed my soul,
But of my life, I must give Him control.
As I journey, I see such wickedness,
There’s so much evil, and so much stress.
Ev’n those who say “Christ is my Lord,”
Turn day by day, farther from His Word.
As I journey, I see apostasy,
As we speed onward, to eternity.
They rebel against God, they transgress,
Then from God, they expect blessedness.
As I journey onward, day by day,
I get closer, to my Home far away.
I feel in my heart, sadness so great,
For O' so many, the Lord Jesus do hate.
As I journey, I know Earth’s not my home,
I know one day, I’ll no longer roam.
I’m headed for that City, so high,
And then for e’er, my Lord I’ll glorify.
As I journey, close to Christ I walk,
And I have peace, when He and I talk.
He’s guiding me, to my "mansion" above,
Where for e’er I’ll know, His amazing love.

AS YOU SURVEY YOUR LIFE
As you survey your life, what do you see?
Is it constant stress, or serenity?
Consider, does worry always plague you?
Think . . . are your dishonest, or are you true?
Do you gossip and backbite, or say good things?
To others, are you a curse, or blessing?
Does love in your heart, to others o’er flow?
Do those around you, the true you know?
Do you cheat others, with thoughts just of greed?
And feelings of others, you never do heed.
Coveting, will bring God’s wrath down on you,
Love of money is simply the wrong view.
Do you deceive others with trickery?
Do monstrous lies, flow from your lips so free?
The deep hurt you inflict, could last for years,
Causing your victim stress, to the point of tears.
As you survey your life, what do you see?
Are you on your way to life eternally?
Are you walking on the Lord’s path of light?
Are you living, what God considers right?
If we want God’s heav’nly Home, as our own
Love to God, and our neighbors, must be shown.
We must have faith, we must trust and obey,
We would surely be wise, to live God’s way!

Blind and Deaf Sinners
Adultery is a sin, you must beware,
Friend, it’s wrong, to think it’s just an affair.
God sees the lust in your eyes and your heart,
Immorality is sin, you must depart.
Murder is sin; "But I’ve killed no one" you say,
But God looks at things, a whole diff’rent way.
If you hate your brother, Heav’n you’ll not see,
Far, far from you, is life eternally.
God’s Word clearly tells us, we must not lie,
Or in Hell, we’ll eternally die.
when we tell ‘white lies’, it is strictly wrong,
We must not go along, with Satan’s throng.
Thou shalt not steal, God so clearly tells,
Robbery is a sin, that leads to Hell.
Men start work late, quit early ev’ry day,
And steal from their boss, in so many ways.
Coveting, what to another belongs,
Is for all God’s children, dreadfully wrong.
God’s Word absolutely, forbids man’s greed,
If we are wise, to our Master we’ll heed.
When we disobey, we sin against God,
It’s a path of rebellion, that we trod.
There’s not any other, to whom you can turn,
When you anger the Lord, make His wroth burn.
O’ blind and deaf sinner, you must awake,
Or you will wind up, in Hell’s fiery lake.
Commit your life, to Christ Jesus today,
For you can’t reach Heav’n’s gate, no other way!

Bumps, Bruises, Blessings
Do life’s bumps and bruises, plague you each day?
Do trials and temptations, come your way?
Does the devil and his tactics, deceive?
Do you shut your mind, to what you could receive?
Life’s bumps and bruises, are a certainty,
But our Lord has blessings, for you and me.
Do you from Christ, foolishly turn away?
When He could help you, in so many ways.
Life’s bumps and bruises, can make you afraid,
But, if you are wise, you’ll run to Christ for aid.
Christ offers abundant blessings, indeed,
If you will just admit, His help you need.
Thru’ bumps and bruises, Christ will not forsake,
If we walk with Him, blessings we’ll partake.
He doesn’t promise, to make troubles flee,
He does promise His Spirit, eternally.
His blessings, make bumps and bruises look small,
He will always lift us up, when we fall.
His amazing grace, is what we should seek,
Great blessings will be poured out, on the meek.

Read: Psalms 3; 6; 13; 31; 37; 64; 77; 102; 121; 142;
John 14: 1-3, 16; 2 John 1:2; Heb.13:5; Rev. 7:17.
Doubt is just one way, old Satan will tempt,
Not one single saint, from doubt is exempt.
Doubt starts out so small, so we must beware,
Or soon we'll be caught up, in Satan's snare.
In a flower patch, doubt is like a weed,
Stifling out the beauty, if we don't pay heed.
We must rip it out, as fast as we can,
On the sin of doubt, we must put a ban.
Doubt is like a flea, on a dog's back,
Ready at any moment, to attack.
Not one little chance, should it be given,
For doubt and unbelief, keep you from Heaven.
Satan will tempt you continuously,
And doubt he uses, frequently.
We must beware, and always be on guard,
For old Satan, is a deceiving fraud.
Submit to God, and the devil will flee,
Only the Lord from doubt, can set you free,
Trust Him, believe in Him, walk the right road,
You'll be relieved from doubt, the devil's goad.
By: His servant: Connie Kramer 8-10-2013 # 1329
Doubt, disbelief, distrust, uncertain, skeptical, rebuked by Christ: (May.6:30; 8:26; 14:31; 16:8; 17:17;, Mk.4:40;, 9:19;, Lk.8:25; 24:25; Jn. 20:27; Jam.1:6). James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (KJV)
We all need, must have the following:
FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT
Gal 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (KJV)
The fruits of the Spirit, our awesome God describe,
These wondrous blessings, for us He does prescribe.
The fruits of the Spirit, are indeed a blessing,
Our awesome God gives to His children, such grand things!
The love of God, is beyond comprehension,
Sending His Son, to save us, from perdition.
Since God loves us so, we must love others too,
For then one sweet day, we shall see Heaven’s view.
Joy is something, so much more than happiness,
In His presence is the fullness of joy, and gladness.
Although we see Him not, yet we still do believe,
And by believing, joy unspeakable, we receive.
When we become God’s children, Jesus gives us peace,
From worry, strife and Satan’s snares, we have release.
Our heart is no longer troubled, and we have no fear,
For the Presence of our awesome Saviour, is near.
If we hope for Heaven, then we patiently wait,
And one sweet day, we shall walk thru’ the pearly gate.
If we patiently endure, His Promise we will obtain,
Our inheritance in Heaven, one day we shall gain.
He gathers the lambs, carries them so tenderly,
Those in His flock, He leads and guides very gently.
God’s wisdom is full of mercy, gentle and pure,
And the pasture of His flock, is safe and secure.
Great is His goodness, for all those who fear Him,
He lights the pathway, so it is never dim.
His goodness and mercy shall follow me, all my days,
And one day I shall see, Heaven’s glorious display.
It is the will of God, that we have faith and believe,
We must believe what He says, and His Son receive.
Without faith, it is impossible to please God,
We must trust Him, as the narrow road we trod.
MEEKNESS, BEING HUMBLE
The meek shall live and be satisfied, ev’ry day,
The meek He will guide, and these will He teach His way.
These shall inherit the earth, and in peace delight,
For they humble themselves, before His great light.
TEMPERANCE, SELF CONTROL
Let us be swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to wrath,
As we control our self, and stay on the narrow path.
Do not let sin reign within you, or its lusts obey,
Jesus is there to help you, each and ev’ry day.
The fruits of the Spirit, are in His Hands alone,
He produces them, and in us they are grown.
To quench the Holy Spirit, is wrong indeed,
Always allow Him to work, and to Him, pay heed!

Before any day was, God was there,
With the Hand of God, none can compare.
When He works, who would want Him to cease?
Curbing His Hand, makes blessings decrease!
Arise O Lord God, lift up Thine hand,
Forget not Thy humble ones, in the land.
Though we stumble, we won’t utterly fall,
He watches His own, all we need do is call.
If my foot slips, in comes His hand of mercy,
His loving compassion, is the key.
He opens His splendid Hand, O so wide,
Revealing all right roads, and to guide.
Though I walk, in the midst of distress,
Thou wilt revive me, and give success.
His Hand is against my enemies,
His Hand is always there, to save me.
Once you are in, God’s powerful Hand,
NO one can remove you, please understand.
You are gifted, with life eternally,
Thanks be to Christ Jesus’, victory!
God’s Holy Hand, will also chastise,
Obedience to God, is SO wise!
We are not to fear man, who on Earth dwell,
We must fear God, who can put us in Hell!
God can raise His Hand in Holy wrath,
If you refuse to walk, on His path.
His Hand can be raised, in righteous ire,
He could condemn you, to the Lake of Fire.

Blessings from His hand: (Isa.43:13; Ps.10:12; 37:24; 94:18; 104:28; 138:7; 139:5,10; 145:14,16; Isa.14:27; 41:10; 50:2; 59:1; Mic.5:9; Jn.10:28; 3:16,36; 5:24; Rom.6:23; Eph.2:8). Chastisement from His Hand: (Dan.4:35; Mat.10:28; 25:41,46; Lk.12:5; 21:11; Ps.62:11; Jn.3:18-21,36; 8:24; Heb.12:29; Rev.20:15)
God’s Hand can be raised in blessing, compassion, love, mercy and peace . . . BUT it can also be raised in anger, condemnation, criticism, disapproval, hatred and wrath. It is how we react to God and His love that decides how God will treat us. It is our decision. Do we love and obey Him? Or do we pay no attention to His continual attempts to get our attention . . . and keep on in sin, disobeying Him?
God loves so much, He sent His Son,
To pay the price, for sins we had done.
He died on that cross for us, that day,
The Father said, ‘twas no other way.
God is a God, of so much mercy,
He forgives us, making us guilt free.
Into the deep sea, our sin He casts,
Allowing us to forget, our past.
God is a God, of much compassion,
When we accept Jesus, His own Son.
Rejecting Jesus, brings on God’s wrath,
Keeping you firmly, on Hell’s broad path.
On God’s love, we should ne’er turn away,
‘Twould be foolish, on any giv’n day!
Rather, in wisdom, this we should do,
Reach out, hold love firmly, me and you.
Only a fool, would God’s love reject,
On our lives, it can have a strong effect.
Accepting God’s love, is wise indeed,
For God and His love, shall rightly lead.
God’s desire is that no one go to Hell,
Instead He wants all, in Heav’n to dwell.
God’s love, is what we all should desire,
For no one would want, the Lake of Fire.

I Could Run
I could run, but I can ne’er hide from You,
You see where I am, and know what I do.
You know the thoughts of my mind, ev’ry one,
You know the end of things, ‘fore they’ve begun.
How could I hide anything from Thy sight?
With You the darkest night, is brilliant light.
When I try to hide, myself I deceive,
Your stern correction, is what I’ll receive.
Running from You O Lord, is foolishness,
When this fool runs from You, You will not bless.
What makes me think that I can outsmart You?
My actions are ne’er, hidden from Your view.
Why can’t I learn that I can’t run and hide?
But instead let You always, be my Guide.
Life wouldn’t be as hard, if I’d obey,
Change me from a fool to a wise man this day.
Continued wrong decisions, and wrong roads,
Will ne’er lead me to Heav’n’s blissful abode.
‘Twill simply bring down, God’s vengeful wrath,
As I try to hide, on that big, broad path.
Running from God, is of no use at all,
In the end, we’ll all hear, His judgment call.
God is so good, WHY do we run away?
When all He wants is to bless us each day.

On the strait and narrow path, I must stay,
And my precious Lord, I must obey.
I must have close fellowship with Him,
Or my chance of Heav’n, is very dim.
I must consider, how others feel,
I must serve Jesus, with love and zeal.
Faith in my Saviour, must persevere,
If I am to feel, His Presence near.
I’ll stray from the narrow path, I know,
But with wisdom from Christ, back I’ll go!
Satan will tempt me, day after day,
I must trust Christ Jesus, all the way.
I must stay on that strait, narrow path,
If I am to avoid, the Father’s wrath.
I must stay away, from the broad road,
That leads to Satan’s fiery abode.
Most of the world, to the broad road flock,
But to them, the gates of Heav’n are lock’d.
The lone gate of Hell, will let them in,
For the God of wrath, condemns their sin.
Unbelief is a terrible thing,
Satan blinds the eyes, to God’s blessings.
Making folks think, the broad road is right,
Blindness keeps them off, the path of light.
Help me Lord, to stay on the narrow road,
That leads me to my eternal Home.
I must stay close to You, I must obey,
I know dear Jesus, there’s no other way.

It Could Have Been Worse
It could have been worse, you must consider,
As o’er your circumstance, you do ponder.
God may test us, with great severity,
To see where we’ll stand, both you and me.
When painful troubles, on us does arrive,
Our faith must be strong, or we’ll not survive.
The closeness of Jesus, is O’ so near,
When we stand firm with Him, we need not fear.
“It could have been worse; I cannot see how,”
These words you speak, as you wipe sweat from your brow.
But there’s been someone before, who’s felt your woe,
Consider this, as thru’ each day you go.
Worry and depression, these do you feel?
And agonizing pain, so very real?
Confusion in your mind, as you ask “Why?”
Many tears flow, as you continue to cry.
There’s someone worse off, if you’d look around,
Troubles to many people, do abound.
Our faith must be steadfast, we must trust the Lord,
Let’s always stay close to Him and His Word.
We know not, what another one feels,
When they go thru’ their trouble, as they heal.
We must remember, as we go thru’ each day,
When Christ is your Friend, He’s there all the way.

Lessons From Life
What have I learned, in my life on Earth?
My wisdom and strength, are of no worth.
I must be humble, I must be meek,
If the Lord’s guidance, I truly seek.
I must ne’er think, “I’ll do it on my own,”
If I e’er want, God’s will to be shown.
I must have faith, and trust Him each day,
And I must love Him, and Him obey.
The Lord many troubles, will permit,
But He’ll always help, by His Spirit.
His Promise “I will not leave or forsake,”
But a commitment to Him, first we must make.
Tho’ temptation and trials, oft are great,
Vast comfort from Him, won’t e’er be late.
His loving Presence, is e’er so near,
We must have faith, not worry or fear.
At times His will, we can’t comprehend,
But if we love and obey, He’s our Friend.
Lessons from life can sometimes be hard,
But from His Throne of grace, we’re ne’er barr’d.
If we are God’s child, and love Him true,
He will always be there, for me and you.
We must be humble, we must be meek,
If the Lord’s guidance, we truly seek.
Such a great comfort, to know He’s there,
So encouraging, to Know He cares.
No matter our trouble, no matter our pain,
Christ’s love, strength, wisdom and help, we can gain.

ON THE BACK BURNER
On the back burner, DON’T put God there,
Of His importance, please be aware.
You need His guidance, you need His pow’r,
You need Him close by, in ev’ry hour.
Have you set God aside, as you live?
Do you forget the blessings, He can give?
Without His pow’r, just where would you be?
As you travel, to eternity.
Do you backslide, or in faith firmly stand?
Do you obey, the Lord Jesus’ command?
We must remember, His gracious love,
And all the great riches, from that love.
On the back burner, God should NOT be!
Don’t restrict Him, instead set Him free!
His pow’r and wisdom, you need each day,
And his guidance, to show the right way.
Open to Him, your mind and your heart,
Stay close to Him always, don’t depart.
He need always be, close and handy,
On the back burner, God should not be!

Safety From Satan
Safety from Satan, is what I pray,
For my feet want to go, the wrong way.
Dear Lord, keep me on the narrow path,
Far, far away, from the Father’s wrath.
Safety, from the devil’s temptations,
For I look, to eternal salvation.
Dear Lord, right decisions, let me make,
Let me never, Your great love forsake.
Safety, from old Satan’s tricks and snares,
I must keep watch, and always be aware.
Dear Lord, keep me from his deceitfulness,
Let me stay close to You, that You may bless.
Safety, from the old devils’ vile hate,
Of this evil, I want not to partake.
Dear Lord, let me love instead, I pray,
And let me praise and thank You, ev’ry day.
Safety, from Satan’s desperate lies,
False doctrine is that, on which he relies.
Dear Lord, let me not fall, for heresy,
Let me tell the Truth, of life eternally.
Safety, from Satan’s mighty shrewd ways,
He wants you, from God’s Book, to stay away.
Firmly each day, let me search Your Word,
That I may gain wisdom, from You Lord.
Safety from Satan, this I do plead,
But this I know, to You I must heed.
Closer to You, let me grow each day,
And may Satan stay, far, far away.
Safety from evil Satan, was won,
By the lovinkindness, of God’s own Son.
As He struggled up the hill, of Calvary,
Satan was beaten! Christ got victory!

Satan’s Ambition: (Gen.3:4; 2 Ki.14:10; Isa.28:2; 2 Thes.2:4,7; Rev.12:3).
Satan, Arch Deceiver: (Gen.3:5,14; Mat.4:6; Mk.1:13; Jn.8:44; 2 Cor.2:11; 11:14; Rev.13:14; 19:20; 20:7-8) Satan’s Tricks: (Mk.4:15; 8:33; Lk.4:6; 1 Cor.2:11;11:3; Eph.6:11; 2 Thes.2:9; Rev.12:9; 20:7-8)
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.

Sometimes troubles come from all directions,
That’s when we should recall, God’s perfection!
He’ll never give us more that we can bear,
He’ll bless with comfort, because He cares.
We all will have troubles, that come our way,
But to His children, great love God displays.
Sufficient grace He gives, abundantly,
With Christ on our side, we’ll have victory.
Tho’ the Lord our troubles, won’t take away,
He will walk with us thru’ them, all the way.
He will encourage us, if we walk with Him,
Things will look brighter, as troubles grow dim.
Did you e’er think, Christ may be testing you?
Run from Him? or to Him? what will you do?
Satan will all your weaknesses explore,
Don’t let the devil get his foot in the door.
No matter what happens, Christ will be there,
He truly does love us, truly does care.
His awesome Presence, is always so near,
He’ll not leave or forsake us, have no fear.
Did you thank Him today, for standing by you?
Do you appreciate His love so true?
What does He mean to you? tell Him this day,
Thank Him for all blessings He brings your way.

TROUBLES AND TRIALS
When troubles that besiege, come into play,
Dear Lord, give me strength, to accept Your way.
When I feel as if, flood waters o’er flow,
Your encouraging love, I want to know.
You do allow trials, to come to me,
The choice I make, is what You want to see.
When troubles come, there’s a choice to make,
I can run fast to You, or You forsake.
We all have a free will, that You did give,
We all use this gift, as our life we live.
But so many times, I choose the wrong path,
And my error at times, can bring on Your wrath.
When You allow pain, to You I must run,
It’s a bad decision, when You I shun.
You ne’er promise, to take all pain away,
But feeling Your Presence, can make my day.
Pain and suffering, and troubles of all kind,
But thru’ these all, I can have peace of mind.
Sufficient Lord, is Your amazing grace,
It sees me thru’ all, as I run my race.
Lord, You do NOT ev’ry malady heal,
It matters not, when Your Presence I feel.
Your strength is made perfect, when I am weak,
The pow’r of Christ, is what I should seek.
I should take pleasure in infirmities,
For this must be for me, a necessity.
You make me strong Lord, when I am weak,
Give me wisdom, Your gracious pow’r to seek.

TROUBLES WILL COME
Over and over, troubles arise,
The secret to this, is look to the skies.
Our help cometh each time from the Lord,
There is great comfort, from His Holy Word.
Satan is all smiles, when you worry,
Submit to God, and the devil will flee.
Temptations come, the Lord does permit,
But strength to endure, comes from His Spirit.
As an angel of light, Satan appears,
But the Holy Spirit is always near.
Over and over, He comes to our aid,
His Presence abides, so don’t be afraid.
Much greater is He who is in you,
Than the world’s devil, so untrue.
When we trust the Spirit, and don’t quench His pow’r,
He’ll help in a heart-beat, at any hour.
With each temptation, trouble and woe,
Great comfort and strength, o’er comes our sorrow.
Fellowship with Christ must be secure,
If troubles in life, we are to endure.
When into your life, doubt starts to creep,
Be sure that Jesus, will safely keep.
Doubt will always eat your faith away,
Don’t give in to Satan, on any day.
Between you and Christ, Satan tries to step in,
Gently he will urge you, into sin.
Take hold of His Hand, as Christ you follow,
He truly will help you, in your sorrow.

WHEN I GO TO JESUS
When I go to Jesus, and humbly ask,
He will always help, in my greatest task.
He wants me to cast, all my pride away,
And be meek and lowly, like Him, each day.
When I go to Jesus, and wisdom request,
It is granted, and I am truly blest.
He wants me to open His Book each day,
Paying attention, to what it has to say.
I go to Jesus, when I’m down and blue,
He has never once failed, to see me thru’.
He leads me and guides me, in all right ways,
Never once will He e’er, lead me astray.
I go to Jesus, when my faith declines,
And when He increases it, it does shine.
My faith is the substance, of things hoped for,
Like the unseen things, on Heav’n’s glorious shore.
I go to Jesus, when I need pardon,
Forgiveness is mine, thru’ God’s only Son.
He cleanses me, from all unrighteousness,
One of the multiple ways, He does bless.
I go to Jesus, when I need directions,
As for incorrect roads, He chooses none.
He sees to it, that I walk the narrow path,
Keeping me away, from God’s holy wrath.
When I went to Jesus, many years ago,
He promised to save me, from Hell below.
Eternal life in Heav’n, is what He gave me,
A mansion in Heav’n’s, eternal beauty.

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!

Jn.14:1-6; 3:15-18,36; 1 Jn.5:10-13; Eph.2:8-9; Rom.6:23; Mat.25:41,46; Mk. 9:44,46;
Lk.16:20-31; Jn.5:28-29; 2 Thes.1:8-9; Rev.20:15; 21:8; Dan12:1-2
Millions of roads, scatter this world so wide,
But just two lead, to where one day, you will reside.
Lusting and luring, are the devil's way,
He wins over so, so many, in these sinful.
Each and every day, he wins many more,
Keeping them away, from the Golden Shore.
To keep them on his road, he tempts, he deceives,
With each passing hour, millions he receives.
Each day, Satan enlists to serve him, more,
Slyly, subtly, keeping them from the Golden Shore,
He leads them, on and on, down his hellish road,
Cleverly persuading, with tricky goads.
As you read these words, that concern eternity,
Are you racing to Hell? Or to Heaven so free?
The choice belongs to no one, except you,
Which road will you choose? The false one, or the true?
Which one? That broad one that Satan makes easy,
That billions of his children, follow with glee?
More and more vile sinners, join Satan's crowd,
And of their wicked sins, they are pleased and proud.
Which one? That broad, dark, easy to travel one?
Or the narrow path, as you follow God's Son"
Both roads will lead, to your eternity,
Which of these two roads, for you? Hell's prison? Or Heaven's glory?

Eternal death (Pro.8:36; Jn.3:18,36; 8:24; Mk.16:16; Acts 4;12; Rom.1:18; 4:15; 5:9; Gal.3:10; Eph.5:6; 1 Thes.1:10; 5:9; Heb.2:3; 10:26-29; 12:25; Rev.6:16-17)
Eternal life: (Mat.25:46; Mk.10:17,30; Jn.3:15-16; 6:4; 10:28; 17:2; Rom.5:21; 6:23; 1 Tim.6:12,19; 1 Jn.5:10-13,20).
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)
Without Jesus, I was headed for Hell,
Wicked Satan, had me under his spell.
I had no concern for sin, no worry,
And I never thought of eternity.
Without Jesus, I would walk the broad road,
I'd have much help, as the devil would goad.
Old Satan wants to keep me, by his side,
He does not want me, with Christ to abide.
Without Jesus, my troubles would be worse,
Satan really tries, to keep me off course.
'Tis a comfort, that Christ's Presence won't leave,
A great blessing indeed, when e'er I grieve.
Without Jesus, many things could go wrong,
For Satan does not want us, to be strong.
I must abide in Christ, or I am weak,
Jesus' love, mercy and pow'r, I must seek.
Without Jesus, there is nothing I can do,
Useless are all efforts, as Heav'n I'd pursue.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life,
Without Christ, all I'd have is Hell and strife.
Without Jesus, no home in Heav'n would there be,
To my mansion above, just Christ has the key.
Jesus has gone, this mansion to prepare,
That where He is, I can also be there.
Without Jesus, I cannot be God's heir,
My inheritance in Heav'n, would not be there.
Just Jesus can give, life eternally,
Just Jesus, can keep me from hell's agony.
