Born Again, Justified, Salvation

RAGING SEA

The world around us, as a raging sea,
Ready to engulf us; watch closely!
Satan is crafty, with power so great,
He’ll try to trick us off our road so strait.

A raging sea, with angry waves so high,
Life’s not always a road smooth, wide and dry!
Furious billows may pull you inside,
You need a Lifeline, or you can’t abide!

Jesus is the Lifeline, waiting your call,
Don’t listen to Satan; or Hell will befall!
Jesus can pull you from the angry waves,
Trust and accept Him; only He can save!

1 Pet.5:8; 1 Jn.3:10; Jn.14:6)

A Whisper in the Wind

A whisper in the wind, is Your Voice to me,
As You kindly guide me, to eternity.
Will I listen, to Your ever so soft words?
Or will I not heed, Your guidance, dear Lord?

A whisper in the wind, guides me to right paths,
Also leading me, away from Your wrath.
Softly and lovingly, You speak to me,
Out of the wind, blowing ever so free.

Your Voice in the calm wind, ever so soft talks,
Gently encouraging, the right way to walk.
Telling me to walk, with the Lord in His light,
Telling me to stay clear, of those of the night.

Whispering such gentle words, I need to hear,
Telling me of Your love, and that I need not fear.
Such wondrous love, I simply can’t comprehend,
It’s simply amazing, that You call me “friend.”

A whisper in the wind, is Your Voice to me,
As You guide me here, then receive me to glory.
I am so grateful, and will thank You always,
I’ll praise You now and forever, all my days.

No need for an earthquake, a whisper will do,
As the wind whooshes by, I’ll listen to You.
I want to be, who You want me to be,
Help me as I walk, to eternity.

Before Jesus, After Jesus

I claim Jesus’ righteousness, as mine,
So that thru’ me, His great Light can shine.
With His power, He made me God’s child,
From now to for e’er, from Hell I’m exiled.

Before Jesus, I was deep in sin,
Sin is how, ev’ry day I’d begin.
Like filthy rags, was my righteousness,
‘Twas no way, that the Father would bless.

Before Jesus,  just self was on my mind,
No love for others, I was not kind.
All I could think of, was me, me, me,
And I ne’er thought, of eternity.

But Jesus, my heart and life did change,
Spirit and soul, He did re-arrange.
Of me, I no longer think any more,
Now I want others, to reach Heav’n’s shore.

Jesus righteousness, for me I claim,
And salvation, in His Holy Name.
No longer will it be, me, me, me,
I’m on my way, to life eternally.

Lord Jesus, thru me, let Your Light shine,
Concern for other’s souls, should be mine.
Lord let me please You, and do Your will,
And Lord, with Your love, my being fill.

BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE. THE

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

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

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

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

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

BORN AGAIN

God promises eternal life, way above,
But only if we accept His Son, in love.
He does not say that to Heaven, all shall go,
Just those who trust Jesus, will His blessings flow.

We must be God’s child, so Heaven we can see,
When we accept God’s Plan, Heav’n is our decree.
We must receive Jesus; believe on His Name,
No matter who you are, God’s Plan is the same!

We must be ‘Born Again’, Jesus tells us clear,
Please listen to Jesus, don’t turn a deaf ear.
We must be ‘Born Again’, or Heav’n we’ll not see,
But all too many, from the precious Gospel flee.

Born Again’ --- so many cannot understand,
If you trust Jesus, He’ll take you by the hand.
He’ll lead you, into the family of God,
On that narrow road, where those before have trod.

Just open your heart, let Him come inside,
Wondrous joy, and peace; will in your life abide.
God’s blessings unfurl, as you trust and obey,
But we must be His child, there’s NO other way!

Ro.8:16,21; 1 Jn.3:10; 5:2; Jam.2:5)

“COME, COME TO ME, CHILD”

Friend, do you a heavy burden carry?
A great load, of sin and iniquity?
There’s One calling to you: “Trust and believe,”
Waiting patiently so Him you’ll receive.

Come, come to Me child,” the Saviour cries,
Are you one of many His calls denies?
“Come, come to Me child,” He cries once more,
Just He can give access to Heav’n’s shore!

Just Jesus can lift your burden so great,
Why, oh why dear one, do you hesitate?
Turn to Jesus when you hear His call,
And Hell’s agony on you won’t befall!

Again He cries: “My child, come to Me,
You’ll not be sin’s slave, for I’ll set you free!

Your heavy burden, Jesus can remove,
When you accept His Son, God does approve!

Come, come to Me child, I have paid the price,
The Blood I shed on the Cross, does suffice
!

His precious Blood cleanses and justifies
ALL who turn to Him when they hear His cry!

Come, come to Me child,” He calls tenderly,
As He knocks on your heart’s door, patiently!
Please dear one, don’t turn Him away,
Accepting Him gives blessings, now and alway!

Cookies

On the bottom shelf, is where the cookies are,
Not out of your reach, and not so very far.
Just like salvation can be, for everyone,
All who trust and believe, in Christ, God's own Son.

In the cookie jar, on the pantry shelf,
You can reach in, grab a cookie for yourself.
And for all who are wise, eternal life awaits,
Just trust Jesus, He can open Heaven's gate.

God did not make salvation, a mystery,
He wants all to receive, life eternally.
He sent His one and only, Begotten Son,
And to all who believe, He gives salvation.

You can reach in the jar, and grab a cookie,
It's on the bottom shelf, just in the pantry.
God makes eternal life, just as easy too,
It's not out of reach, just waiting for you.

Eternal salvation, is like a cookie,
On the bottom shelf, waiting for you and me.
Such wondrous blessings await, blessings galore,
When we reach the beauty, of Heaven's shore.

Salvation is a GIFT, free and clear! Eph.2:8-9; Rom.5:15-18; 6:23. When I read Billy Sunday's Sermon: "Wonderful", his words touched my heart. God put the cookies on the lower shelf, so that we all could easily reach them!
Salvation may come quietly, but we must NOT remain silent about it.

ETERNAL LIFE

Eternal life; what does it entail?
‘Tis endless life, that will never fail.
But friend, it means so much more than this,
It’s life in Heaven; it’s total bliss.

A promise fulfilled, it does mean,
No man, nor Satan, can come between.
‘Tis ours, the moment we do believe,
Trusting Christ to save, and Him receive.

Christ promised life, abundantly,
We can claim this promise, victoriously.
A full meaningful life, in His will,
Spirit controlled, with hope to instill.

This ‘life’ is yours, when you do believe,
It starts on Earth, ‘till Heav’n we receive.
Only thru’ Christ, can you have this ‘life’,
Without Christ, sin and evil are rife.

Life in Heav’n is coming, soon I know,
No tears, pain nor suffering, no woe.
Only the joy of serving our Lord,
Loving Him always; that won’t be hard.

I praise my dear Saviour, ev’ry day,
Eternal life is mine, for alway!
The joy and peace He puts in my heart,
And the hope of Heav’n, will ne’er depart.

FOREVER LOST

Without Christ, you are forever lost,
Friend, have you ever counted the cost?
Only Jesus can redeem your soul,
Just He has authority and control.

Forever lost, when you live in sin,
But Christ, for you, a new life begins!
Your sin, you must admit and repent,
Your forgiveness is why God’s Son was sent!

Forever lost; condemned to Hell!
Your unrighteousness, just Christ can quell!
Only Christ Jesus your soul can save,
And grant eternal life beyond the grave!

Are you without Christ and forever lost?
You don’t have to be; please count the cost!
If you turn to Jesus this v’ry day,
You’ll be forever saved, for alway!

HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD

Christ was the “Lamb” who died on the Cross,
Without His death, we ALL would be lost!
Without spot or blemish; He was sin free,
He shed His precious Blood, for you and me.

Just His precious Blood can save your soul,
For of Heav’n, only He has control.
If you try to gain Heav’n on your own,
The gate of Hell to you will be shown.

Only His precious Blood, blemish free,
Can save from dark Hell, both you and me.
Only God’s “Lamb” can take sin away,
He’ll make us clean, for Heaven some day.

We can’t obtain the key to Heav’n’s gate,
Not by works we do, whether small or great!
Only His precious Blood turns that key,
To eternal life, for you and me.

Please don’t turn your back on our dear Lord,
He’s our ONLY Saviour; don’t discard!
Don’t reject His wondrous, precious Blood,
Instead, be cleansed, by this great Flood!

Turn to Jesus, please do it today,
If Heav’n’s your goal, there’s NO other way!
Only His precious Blood can save you,
Believe and accept; He will rescue.

Eternal Life

The start of eternal life, is common faith,
We must believe this, with our every breath.
Grace, mercy and peace, comes thru’ our dear Lord,
All clearly revealed, in His Holy Word.

Eternal life has just One, Fountainhead,
‘Tho’ false doctrines by many cults, are spread.
Just Jesus is the Truth, Life and only Way,
That will ever get you, to Heaven one day.

Eternal life is a Gift, ever so free,
A Promise to “whosoever” . . . you and me!
To get into Heaven, it’s our faith, God’s grace,
It’s there in His Home, we’ll see His wondrous Face.

Eternal Life means, in Christ we are hid,
Believing and trusting, is what God does bid.
Eternal life is surely, security,
Given by our gracious God, ever so free.

Eternal life is a hope, ever so grand,
God promised a mansion, in Heaven Land.
A wonderful mansion, reserved for me,
In the Promised Land, of eternity.

Eternal life means, we must walk in the light,
Following Christ, not letting Him out of sight.
Trusting Him always, let Him lead, let Him guide,
For just Jesus, eternal live can provide!

EVERYONE NEEDS

Everyone needs, someone to love,
In this fast paced world, of push and shove.
We can ne’er give, all our love away,
God replaces it, day after day.

Every one of us, needs mercy,
Because not one of us, is sin free.
God’s compassion, is wondrous indeed,
All He asks of us, His will to heed.

Every one of us, needs forgiveness,
When God forgives, He truly does bless.
We too, need to forgive one another,
God demands, we forgive our brother.

Everyone, every where, needs God’s grace.
As we each run, our Christian race.
His amazing grace, will see us thru’,
When things get rough, for me and you.

Everyone needs, faith in the Lord,
Heav’n’s pathway is clear, in God’s Word!
Christ Jesus, has Heav’n’s only key,
Just faith in Christ, gives life eternally.

Few And Far Between

The few and far between . . . are you one?
Do you believe, in God's only Son?
Only Jesus, can make you God's child,
Without Him, you are unclean and defiled.

Do you qualify, as one of the few?
Has the Holy Ghost, made you anew?
Belief in Christ, is the only way,
To get a pass, into Heav'n one day!

One of the few, do you stand firm and bold?
Are you one of the sheep, in His fold?
When the Great Shepherd speaks, do you hear?
Are you far away, or are you near?

Far between, are the children of God,
Most refuse, that narrow road to trod.
Children of God, great blessings receive,
But they must start, God's Word to believe.

Jesus is, the One and Only Way,
To get you to, your mansion one day.
At the Rapture, will He call your name?
The few that He calls, shall have no shame.

The few and far between , are you one?
Have you believed God, and trusted His Son?
Jesus can save you, from fiery Hell,
And grant Heav'n instead, where you shall dwell.

From a Nobody to a Somebody

I was a nobody, until I believed,
By the grace of God, Christ Jesus I received.
Now I’m a somebody, head’d for Heav’n’s shore,
I’m a child of the King, who could ask for more?

Moses was a nobody, till he met the Lord,
Then he was a somebody, obeying God’s Word.
Tho’ he was not perfect, God prepar’d a way,
Moses led God’s people, each and ev’ry day.

Elijah was a nobody, without God’s pow’r,
But he was a somebody, in that great hour.
In a short pray’r, he called down fire from God on High,
Consum’d the sacrifice, and licked the water dry.

David was a nobody, a young shepherd lad,
Till he came up against Goliath, big and bad.
David became somebody, with faith so strong,
All somebodies, to God’s family belong.

I’m glad I’m a somebody, serving my Lord,
He chose me, equipp’d me, with His Spirit and Word.
From a nothing nobody, to belove’d child,
From God’s Home on High, I’ll ne’er be exiled.

Thank You Lord Jesus, my life’s greatest Treasure,
You give this somebody, such amazing pleasure.
You made this once nobody, into somebody,
Who shall with You in Heav’n, spend eternity.

GOD’S LOVE

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.

Send your praise to Him, in Heav’n high above.

How many times, has He forgiv’n you?
Have you thanked Him? Is that too much to do?
He casts our sins, to the bottom of the sea,
Because of Christ, He forgives you and me!

Have you considered, His amazing grace?
Have you thanked him, as you run your daily race?
The grace of God alone, is what saves your soul,
Have you o’er your life, given Him control?

Have you thanked Him, for life eternally?
Have you thanked Him, for hearing your every plea?

His Book

Do you live by the rules, in His Book?
Or have you ne’er, taken time to look?
His Book always leads, in the right way,
But we must be wise, and read each day!

Many troubles come, from Satan’s hand,
As we live our life, in this great land.
Wisdom will make us, open His Book,
Good answers are inside, if we look!

Stress and worry, seem to come to all,
His Book clearly states, on Him to call.
Indescribable peace, can come to you,
But you must rely, on His Book so true!

Pain and sorrow, can come to your heart,
‘Tis now we must not, from His Book depart.
 Such great comfort, can come from within,
Wisdom should tell us, it’s there to begin!

Pride is a no-no, we must be meek,
To imitate Jesus, we must seek.
His Book can keep us, on the right path,
And teach us how, to avoid God’s wrath!

His Book will never, lead you astray,
It tells how to get, to Heav’n one day.
It also tells us, how to avoid Hell,
For certain no one, wants there to dwell!

If you’re not familiar, with His Book,
May I please suggest, that you take a look.
The Lord loves you, and won’t lead you wrong,
His Book leads you right, and makes you strong!

HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD

Christ was the “Lamb” who died on the Cross,
Without His death, we ALL would be lost!
Without spot or blemish; He was sin free,
He shed His precious Blood, for you and me.

Just His precious Blood can save your soul,
For of Heav’n, only He has control.
If you try to gain Heav’n on your own,
The gate of Hell to you will be shown.

Only His precious Blood, blemish free,
Can save from dark Hell, both you and me.
Only God’s “Lamb” can take sin away,
He’ll make us clean, for Heaven some day.

We can’t obtain the key to Heav’n’s gate,
Not by works we do, whether small or great!
Only His precious Blood turns that key,
To eternal life, for you and me.

Please don’t turn your back on our dear Lord,
He’s our ONLY Saviour; don’t discard!
Don’t reject His wondrous, precious Blood,
Instead, be cleansed, by this great Flood!

Turn to Jesus, please do it today,
If Heav’n’s your goal, there’s NO other way!
Only His precious Blood can save you,
Believe and accept; He will rescue.

Scripture verses for above poem:
(Is.53:7; Lev.17:11; Ex.12:13; Jn.1:29; Jn.15:13; Jn.3:15-18,36;
Jn.5:24; Jn.8:24; Jn.14:6; 1 Co.5:7; 1 Pet.1:19; Gal.1:4; Tit.2:14;
Heb.10:14; Rev.1:5; Rev.3:5; Rev.7:9; Rev.19:8)

I’d Rather

I’d rather serve my Master, and be at His Feet,
Than be a rich man, being served dainties so sweet.
We all have decisions, in this life to decide,
Will we serve the Lord in Heaven? . . . or in Hell reside?

I’d rather be a poor man, and the Lord believe,
Than be a rich man, and the devil’s lies receive.
Many choices stand before us, as this life we live,
It depends what we choose, on what place the Lord gives.

I’d rather follow Jesus, on the path of light,
Than traipse after Satan, on broad roads black as night.
The Lord will guide us, on those narrow roads so strait,
To keep following Satan, you decide your own fate.

I’d rather love the Lord, and be the Father’s child,
Than to listen to Satan, and from Heaven be exiled.
When you choose the devil, and all his wicked ways,
You’ll spend eternity in Hell, all of your days,

I’d rather obey God, and always do His will,
Than allow Satan, worldly desires to instill.
There are only two places, in eternity,
The Lake of Fire, OR Heaven’s amazing beauty.

I’d rather be a fool, in this world’s evil eyes,
Than be an unbeliever, who my God denies.
Choosing another god, is the wrong way to go,
It will lead just to Hell, and eternal sorrow.

I’d rather go to Heaven, and live with the Lord,
Spending ev’n one hour in Hell, I cannot afford.
Lord, help me always to choose, Your will and right paths,
For I ne’er want to face, the judgment of Your wrath.

JESUS IN YOUR HEART
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  (KJV)
Your heart’s door has only one doorknob and it is on the inside! YOU must open your heart’s door or you leave Him out in the cold! He will NOT force Himself on you! OPEN the door my friend! Great and wonderful things will take place in your life.

When the goodness of Jesus, comes into your heart,
The bad and evil things, quickly start to depart!
Christ Jesus came in, when I opened my heart’s door,
He releases grand blessings, that He holds in store!

Awesome blessings come your way, when He resides,
Great Godly gifts are yours, when Jesus presides.
He will help you cast out, all immoral things,
For He gives vic’try, o’er all that Satan brings.

When you allow Christ Jesus, into your heart,
Backbiting, blasphemy, cursing, will depart!
Just kind, loving and tender words, you will speak,
And your attitude, will be humble and meek!

When Jesus comes into your heart, bad things flee,
Envy, greed, hatred, strife, will be far from thee!
Love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, will take place,
For the Spirit of Christ, helps us run our race!

When the goodness of Jesus, comes into your heart,
He gives the newly made you, a brand new start!
The amazing peace and comfort, He gives you,
With each new wonderful day, will continue!

Christ Jesus cannot come, into your life and heart,
Open your heart’s door, that His blessings may start.
Exceptional good things, He brings continually,
And when we depart this Earth, life eternally!

JUSTIFIED

Just as if we’d ne’er sinned; justified!
Christ took away our sin when He died.
We’re not justified by law; but by faith,
Unbelief ends in eternal death.

Justified by faith; we now have peace,
Life to His children He will increase.
Justified by His Blood; saved from wrath,
Belief in Christ, takes you from Hell’s path!

Without Christ, we are God’s enemies,
Just Christ can reconcile; grant victory!
Reconciled, by the death of God’s Son,
Now, we’re God’s friend; life has just begun!

Only by ‘One’, comes the gift so free,
He can justify all; both you and me!
Our righteousness comes only by faith,
Works of man will lead only in death!

We’re justified only in Christ’s Name,
Just God’s Spirit can remove our shame!
Just by faith do we become God’s child,
Without Jesus, we are defiled!

JUSTIFIED

‘Justified’ means we are made righteous,     Ro.3:21
This happens just thru’ Christ, so precious.  Ro.5:1
Justified by faith, we now have peace,          Ro.5:1; Gal.3:6
Deep down peace, that will only increase.    Jn.14:27; Ro.14:17; 1 P.1:2; 2 P.1:2

Justification is received by faith,                  Ro.3:22; Gal.3:24; Ac.13:39
No other way, save your time and breath!   Jn.3:15-18,36
To God, we all must be justified,                 Ro.3:23
We must die to sin; and in Him abide.         Ro.6:11; Gal.2:20; 1 Jn.3:6

Righteousness is giv’n by God, so free,        Ro.3:24; Phil.3:9
Just Christ’s Blood can justify you and me.  Ro.5:9; Col.1:20
There is none righteous on our own, not one, Ro.3:10; Is.64:6
But we stand bold and brave, thru’ God’s Son. Heb.10:19; Ep.3:12

We’re justified, by the price Christ did pay,    Ro.3:25-26; 1 Jn.2:2; 4:10
God’s holy wrath, from us, did sway!              Ro.5:9; Col.1:19-22
We are redeemed, by His Precious Blood,       1 P.1:18-19; Rev.5:9
That was shed at Calv’ry, that Precious Flood! Ac.20:28; Rev.1:5

Just as if we’d never sinned; ‘Justified’,         Gen.15:6; Ac.13:39; 1 Co.6:11
Christ paid it all when He was crucified.         Heb.1:3; 10:12; 12:2
Declared ‘not guilty’ in the courts of Heav’n,  Ro.4:3; 1:17; Phil.3:9
And eternal life, thru’ Christ, is then giv’n!      Jn.3:15-18,36; 5:24; 8:24; 14:1-6

KEPT

Kept safe from falling, by His awesome pow’r,
Be it dusk or dawn, no matter the hour.
The Lord is always there, to lead and guide,
Wondrous daily blessings, He does provide.

Kept by the Lord, by His amazing grace,
One day soon I will see Him, Face to face.
And I will thank Him, all over again,
Such great joy, will be experienced then.

Kept secure by the Lord, by His deep love,
All God’s children will live, with Him above.
He loved us so much, He sent us His Son,
When we believe in Him, salvation’s begun.

Kept by the Lord, such a blessing indeed,
We are so wise, is His wishes we heed.
Reserved in our name, a mansion awaits,
Belief in Christ Jesus, opens Heaven’s gate.

Kept by the Lord, thru’ out all eternity,
He’ll supply all the needs, of you and me.
We’ll ne’er have any worries any more,
For we’ll be in God’s Home, on Heav’n’s shore.

Love for the Lord

The love I have for the Lord, I must express,
A deep heart felt love, a love I must confess.
This fervent love for Him, grows stronger each day,
As I walk close to Him, in the narrow way.

I love Him more, than my father or mother,
For Christ Jesus is, my spiritual Brother.
Because I love Jesus, the Father loves me too,
With love that I simply cannot, misconstrue.

God’s grace is with me, for my love is sincere,
For I can always feel, His Presence so near.
I will stand firm and hold fast, in this great love,
And reject evils, in this world of push and shove.

He blesses me, when I endure temptation,
Promised a crown, along with salvation.
Master, I love Thee, with all my heart and soul,
And I have given to You, complete control.

I look to the day, when You shall appear,
‘Twill be a day of joy, there will be no fear.
Face to face precious Lord, You will I see,
And I will then spend with You, eternity.

Although I have not seen Him, I love Him so,
And know He will keep me, from fiery Hell below.
Instead I shall abide, on Heav’n’s blissful shore,
And there daily learn, to love Him, yet more.

MANY THINGS TAKE PLACE

So many things take place as we live,
We’d not make it, if grace God didn’t give.
Heartache and loneliness, pain and stress,
Sickness and death; we have much sadness.

At times we’ll try; but end in failure,
Then feel inadequate and insecure!
We misplace loyalty; trusting wrong ones,
And face rejection when we’re shunned.

Confusion, anxiety; all around!
Pressure and anguish surely abound.
Guilt, and sometimes we feel hopelessness,
Suffering and hurt, and much distress.

What e’er comes, which Satan has hurled,
Be ye not conformed to this world.
Count it all joy when temptations come,
Go; ask God for patience and wisdom.

Our temptations may be heavy and great,
But God in Heav’n, is compassionate.
The trial of your faith is worth more than gold,
Go to Him for help; He’ll never scold!

If you believe God; all that He’s said,
You will have nothing, ever, to dread.
His Son will help you this life to live,
AND, eternal life, to you, He’ll give!

Privileges of God’s children: Forgiveness (Col.1:12-14); Rest for your soul (Mat.11:28-30); Spiritual knowledge (Pro.1:7; 9:10); Eternal life (Jn.6:51; 10:9); Holy Spirit (Jn.14:16-17; 1 Cor.3:16; 12:13; Rom.8:9); Fellowship (Rev.3:20; Jn.17:3); Peace (Phil.4:7; Col.3:15); Needs supplied (Phil.4:19); Power (Col.1:11-12); Love (Eph.3:19; 1 Thes.3:12); Joy (Ps.16:11; Jn.15:11); Contentment (1 Tim.6:6,8; Heb.13:5);  Comfort (Mat.5:4; Jn.14:1; Rom.8:28; 1 Thes.4:13; 2 Thes.2:16); Patience, gentleness, goodness, faith (Gal.5:22); Meekness, self-control (Gal.2:23). This is just the tip of the iceberg! God has many blessings for His children.

NOTHING YOU OR I CAN DO

I know there is nothing I can do,
To earn salvation, by my virtue.
It is a Gift, by the grace of God,
Thru’ faith in Jesus, the world abroad.

There is nothing I can do, I know,
My best would place me in Hell below.
Only Christ alone, holds Heaven’s key,
Just He can give life, eternally.

Without Jesus, we’re God’s enemy,
Dark Hell would be our final decree.
There is nothing, we could ever do,
All our works, God would curse, or beshrew.

Nothing that we do, or say, or try,
Can ever in God’s eyes, justify.
Just Christ’s precious Blood can reconcile,
All our efforts, will only defile.

Jesus did it all, for us, back then,
On the Cross, He paid for the sins of men.
There is nothing you or I can do,
Just accept by faith, His love so true.

Our Wonderful Promise Keeper

I feel His vast love, as I go thru’ the day,
The warmth of His Presence, is with me always.
His Word tells me, of the Promises He makes,
I will never leave you, never forsake.

His grace is indeed, an amazing thing,
There for me always, such a grand blessing.
His grace is what gave me, life eternally,
An awesome Gift, God promised to me.

I dearly love His pow’r, and authority,
For Christ made me a child, in God’s family.
He promis’d some day, a mansion on high,
Reserv’d for me, and on Him I can rely!

I count on His guidance, each and ev’ry day,
As He lovingly guides me, in the right way.
He guides me with His counsel, ‘tis no story,
And when I pass on, He’ll receive me to glory.

His faithfulness gives me hope, abundantly,
Giving me assurance, and security.
‘Tis such a comfort to know, He cannot lie,
And that on ALL of His Promises, I can rely!

Forgiveness of my sins, I can’t comprehend,
What an awesome God, that He calls me “friend.”
I praise Him for all, that He does for me,
I’ll thank Him now, and for eternity.

Precious Jesus

Heaven is a dream, that one day will come true,
But Lord, I must walk, that narrow road with You.
Precious Jesus, give me wisdom to do right,
And in my dark times, shed on me Your glorious Light!

Heaven is a hope, that I shall realize,
But Lord, I must trust and obey, to be wise.
Precious Jesus, help me to be, who I should be,
As I come closer, to life eternally!

Heaven is a far off vision, I shall see,
But Lord, I must not ever, be blind to Thee.
Precious Jesus, let my faith, not ever fail,
Let my heart-felt love and trust, always prevail.

Heaven today, is an image out in space,
But Lord, it shall be real, and I’ll see Your Face.
Precious Jesus, let me always persevere,
For my hope of Heaven, draws O’ so near.

Heaven right now, seems dim and so far away,
But Lord, I know, I’ll see Your Face, one sweet day.
Precious Jesus, help me to walk, close to You,
For I truly want, to see Heaven’s wondrous view!

Precious Jesus, keep me from the devil’s snares,
But Lord, when I stumble, show me how You care.
Precious Jesus, help me to walk, that small path,
That I may ne’er be condemned, by the Father’s wrath.

The Road to Heaven

On the brink of disaster, this world stands,
This whole Universe, is in the Lord’s Hands.
Immorality, and such wickedness,
The Almighty Creator, will not bless.

As each of us walk, in the world today,
Oh! So many are trav’ling, the broad way,
They follow their master, who leads to Hell,
And there for eternity, they shall dwell.

Great, lofty mountains, and canyons so wide,
Will cross our path, as in this life we stride.
Those who are wise, will walk the narrow path,
In the light of Christ, which keeps us from God’s wrath.

We may come to a huge canyon, so deep,
Along the edge, we must cautiously creep.
We must obey the Spirit, as He guides,
Always correct directions, He’ll provides.

A wild raging river, comes into view,
How will we cross over? What shall we do?
Many are the obstacles, on our road,
As we keep on, to our heavn’ly abode.

Are you standing, at a junction this day?
Don’t let the old devil, your mind to sway.
If you’re on the broad road, get off right now,
Let the Holy Ghost, with wisdom endow.

Trials and tribulations, each day arrive,
The Spirit of Christ, your strength can revive.
From all temptations, you can walk away,
You can do all things, through Christ every day.

Many obstacles could come, across our road,
But the light of Christ, on us is bestowed.
Privileg’d we are, with Jesus on our side,
We must keep our faith, and in Him abide.

Hell: (Isa.5:14; 14:9; 30:33; Ps.49:14; Pro.27:20; Eze.32:18-30; Hab.2:5; Mat.7:13; Rev.20 13-15).

(KJV)

Salvation

Salvation is taught, so very clear,
But we must listen, so we can hear.
God so loved the world, He sent His Son,
When we believe, eternal life’s begun.

God will not condemn, when we believe,
God’s amazing grace, we do receive.
Refusing to believe, brings God’s wrath,
But, most of the world, travel that path.

The Bible says, there is only one Way,
That we will e’er see, that glorious day.
Belief brings us, a mansion above,
And there to live for e’er, in God’s love.

To Heav’n’s gate, just Jesus has the key,
Just He can give, life eternally.
There is no other name, under Heav’n,
That salvation to us, will be giv’n.

Jesus is the Christ, when we believe,
Eternal salvation, we receive.
Unbelief will bring, the fires of Hell,
Where for e’er in agony, you will dwell.

We have life, when Christ is in our heart,
Our wicked, sinful ways, will depart.
Greater is God’s Spirit, who indwells,
Than old Satan, who will go to Hell.

Salvation is a Gift, but YOU decide,
Is the mansion in Heav’n, where you’ll reside?
If you refuse Christ, Hell is where you’ll go,
With the old devil, and great sorrow.

Steps in Salvation

The first step in salvation, is believe,
When the Gospel is heard, it you must receive.
The Lord Jesus, you must trust and accept,
For just He alone, from Hell can protect.

Faith in Jesus as Saviour, stops God’s wrath,
When we walk with the Lord, on the right path.
Justified by faith, means we’re not guilty,
Our sins are forgiven, and we are guilt free.

Sanctification, is what we next find,
Set apart for God, which eases our mind.
Baptism by the Spirit, does sanctify,
Means we’re God’s child, and us, He won’t deny.

Glorification, the last we come to,
God’s children will be glorified, me and you.
We’ll all be changed, to a sinless body,
This mortal must put on, immortality.

No sinner shall gain entrance, at Heav’n’s Gate,
Our bodies must be changed, to participate.
Christ shall change our vile body, He has pow’r,
Then we’ll join Him in Heav’n, for e’er, ev’ry hour!

Path of Light. The

Lord, let me always walk, the path of light,
As I run my race, in a world dark as night.
Help me stay on the path, and Your will do,
My heart’s desire, is to always please you.

To Your will Lord, I surrender my all,
Giving in to my will, I’ll always fall.
On Your path of light, is where I must walk,
For in darkness, is where Satan stalks.

Help me stay on the path of light, near You,
Lord, let me always, keep You in plain view.
I know I’ll fail You, as I’ve done before,
But You forgive, and I love You all the more.

I must stay e’er so close, as with You I go,
Obedience to You, avoids sorrow.
The love You have for Your people, is sure,
When we walk the path of light, we endure.

When I stumble, You reach out for my hand,
As I journey onward, to Glory Land.
What a wondrous Comfort, You are to me,
Giging me hope, of life eternally.

Thank You dear Lord, my Shepherd and my Guide,
I look to the day, when with You, I’ll reside.
Help me to stay on, that narrow path of light,
As I try by You, to always do right.

TWO MASTERS

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

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

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

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

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

RESULTS OF SALVATION

Salvation will result in your change,
Your life, Christ Jesus will rearrange.
Your old wicked ways go out the door,
Makes way for the new you held in store.

We’re freed from sin and degradation,
A great result of our salvation.
We are no longer God’s enemy,
We’re justified thru’ Christ; victory!

Salvation will make us God’s children,
His Spirit abides in us; great gain!
Heirs of His Kingdom, with Him we’ll live,
And even now, great blessings He’ll give!

A result of salvation; fruit we’ll bear,
Serving Him, showing others you care.
A privilege; direct access to God,
He’ll hear our prayer, the world abroad.

A great foundation; our “Cornerstone”,
We are His church, for He did atone.
Salvation grants assurance so great,
If we’ll hold fast, Heaven is our fate.

REWARD? OR LOSS?

As you consider at the set of sun,
Counting the good deeds that you have done.
Did you do those things to glorify
Our loving Saviour, in His Home on High?

As you reflect o’er the day that’s past,
Will things you’ve done, in eternity last?
All our works will be tried, one by one,
All motives will be judged by God’s Son.

A reward will be giv’n if our works stand,
All we do for Christ, while in this land.
All works done selfishly will be burned,
All our proud motives will be spurned.

Before the Great Judge, we’ll stand one day,
Do you know my friend, what you will say?
In His awesome Presence, truth will out,
We’ll suffer loss; OR we’ll sing and shout!

Road Map
Psalm 73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel,
and afterward receive me to glory.(KJV)  
 
More like Jesus, I know I should be,
As I walk onward, to eternity.
So many obstacles, as I walk,
I must beware, of thoughts, deeds and talk.

We all have a “road map” as we go,
But few use it, causing great sorrow.
We will face many detours, on our way,
We all should use our “road map” ev’ry day.

The Bible will show us, only right paths,
Keeping us away, from God’s Holy wrath.
Temptation will come, as we walk on,
Ask yourself, “What would Jesus have done?”

Mors like Jesus, the Bible will show,
So, to the “road map,” we all must go.
The “road map,” will never wrongly lead,
If we would just consult it, and pay heed.

The Bible will guide us, in all right ways,
God will gladly lead us, all our days.
But we must truly trust Him, and obey,
For to reach Heaven, there’s NO other way!

Our road in life, may get rough and steep,
Count on the “road map,” to safely keep.
The Bible keeps us, on right roads each day,
And makes us more like Jesus, on our way.

When you take a trip, a “road map” you need,
On our trip to Heave’n, the Bible we must heed.
Trust Jesus to help you, each single day,
For the Bible says, He’s the ONLY Way!

SAYING I’M GRATEFUL . . .

Saying I’m grateful just scratches the surface,
How I thank Him for His amazing grace!
Nothing I did, made God predestine me,
Yet I’ll live with Him, for eternity!

Predestinated, to become God’s own child,
Ev’n tho’ my nature is totally defil’d!
He chose me before, He created the world,
My life, before Him, completely unfurl’d!

I can take no credit, no, none at all,
But I can be grateful, I heard His call!
I don’t deserve His mercy and His love,
Yet He reached down and chose me, from Heav’n above!

Saying I’m grateful; ‘tis not enough to say,
For my heart and soul, rejoice ev’ry day!
I’ll praise You always, for Your awesome grace,
I look so to the day when I see Your Face!

Saying I’m grateful, are just words I speak,
It’s the nearness of Your Presence I seek!
I’ll praise You now, and eternity thru’,
My eternal soul will always thank You!

Saying I’m grateful, is a very small thing,
For Your choosing me, wondrous blessings bring!
According to the good pleasure of Thy will,
My entire being, Your Spirit does fill!

I’m so grateful, You chose me long ago,
But why You chose me, I surely don’t know!
I’ll say I’m grateful, till I’m home with You,
For privileged I am, to be one of the “few”.

SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS?

Can wealth make you happy, as you live?
Can it buy friends? or good health give?
Can it bring happiness to your life?
Can servants or pleasure keep you from strife?

Can education make you happy?
Learning worldly things, can’t give ecstasy.
Tho’ much knowledge you have acquired,
Happiness seems to be your greatest desire.

Can liquor bring you satisfaction?
In the end, it will bring degradation.
Drugs of NO kind can bring happiness,
Only your problems it does suppress.

Can lust and sex fill the void in your heart?
Will that emptiness, from you depart?
Can it give happiness and peace?
Will the unhappiness you feel, cease?

Only Christ can give TRUE happiness,
Life without Him, is just weariness.
Disappointment will flee with Christ there,
For He, your troubles, with you will share.
'
Sweet peace overflows when Christ abides,
He’s always there, to comfort and guide,
To seek happiness without Him is vain,
Only He can give peace that remains.

The Presence of Christ is pleasure and joy,
Happiness that NO one can destroy.
Give your heart to our Saviour today,
Trust and accept Him; there’s NO other way!

1 K.11:1-3; Jn.17:3; 6:37)

SEE GOD WITH YOUR HEART

With our mere eyes, God can’t be seen,
Not ‘til in Heav’n we all convene.
With our v’ry hearts God we must see,
Or Hell will be our destiny.

Only our heart can reveal God,
‘Tis this way, the whole world abroad.
But once we see Him with our heart,
Our very lives we do restart.

Once we see with our heart, so deep,
‘Tis amazing, what blessings we reap!
We can then see Him all around,
Where e’er we look; He can be found.

He’s in the Earth, the sky, the sea,
In a tiny bird in a tree.
In the beauty of a flower,
In the refreshing, spring shower.
We can now see God every where,

But before, ‘twas all bleak and bare.
Can you, our God, with your heart, see?
He’ll do for you, what He did for me.

SEEING CHRIST

Seeing Christ with the ‘eye of faith’ saves us,
His vast power makes us victorious.
From the law of sin and death, we are free,
Only our faith in Christ grants us victory!

When we see Jesus with the ‘eye of love’,
We’ll trust completely, til we get above.
Awaiting me is my glorious Home,
In those days, from God, I’ll never roam!

To see Christ with the ‘eye of recognition’,
Is to adore Him, in all conditions!
And in the ‘eye of concentration’ we see,
Christ, as KING OF KINGS, in all His glory.

The ‘eye of spiritual understanding’
Sees Christ, as we should be; always enduring.
Seeing Him with the ‘eye of reality’,
Makes us glad in Him; joyous and happy.

Seeing Christ with the ‘eye of wondrous hope’,
Means we, God’s children, never have to grope.
We’re full of holy enthusiasm,
Looking forward to our eternal Home.

SEEING GOD

When you see God in His majesty,
You will see yourself very lowly.
When into His Presence, you do arrive,
Your attitude of pride, can’t survive.

When you see God in His purity,
You’ll see yourself, sinful and dirty.
You’ll beg Him to make you white as snow,
With cleanliness, just He can bestow.

When you see God in His holiness,
You will see all of your wickedness.
Holiness is what you’ll clearly see,
Opposite, of your depravity.

When you see God in all His glory,
Any pride you had will quickly flee.
Any fame and honor that came your way,
You will gladly cast far, far away.

When you see God in His love and grace,
You know one day you’ll see Him, Face to face.
Just by His grace, one day you will see,
The bliss of Heaven’s eternity.

When you see God so perfect and true,
You will wonder how He could see you.
You’ll see your total imperfectness,
Yet wonder of wonders, God does bless.

When we see God, when we truly see,
Our heart, mind and soul, are then set free.
A new creation, us He will make,
And to Heaven, one day He will take.

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.

So Many

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.

SPIRITUAL EYES AND EARS
Luke 24:31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? (KJV)
Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: (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)

Most have physical eyes, but they just cannot see,
That Christ Jesus is God, of all eternity.
The eyes of their understanding, remain closed,
It seems that to the Truth, they want not to be exposed.

These with their eyes shut, cannot see things clearly,
Their eyes see only those things, which are worldly.
Lewdness, lust, materialism and greed,
Those with physical eyes, just to these things pay heed.

Lord, give me spiritual eyes, that I may see,
All the awesome wonders, of Your majesty!
Let my heart burn, with the Truth of Your Holy Word,
That I may know, eternal life from me is not barred!

Most have physical ears, but they just cannot hear,
In one ear, out the other, the Truth disappears.
People do not care, about the Truth God reveals,
Their only concern in this life, is how they feel.

These with their ears shut, cannot hear what is said,
Their ears hear only those things, which cause them no dread.
Arrogance, deception and self-righteousness,
Those with physical ears, just to these things access

Lord, give me spiritual ears, that I may hear,
Your precious Words of Truth, we should hold dear.
Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear God’s Words,
For they shall in time, receive their due rewards!

Many are they, that speak evil of things they know not,
Rejecting the Truth, that Jesus, their souls bought.
Refusing to believe, Jesus is the only Way,
That “road” is too narrow, is what they say.

The Lord Jesus, on that rugged old cross died,
He gave His life for us, He was crucified!
He paid sin’s debt for me, that He did not owe,
Which keeps me from that horrible place below!

Seven Reasons Why the Bible Is Not Understood
#1. Man’s reasoning, which brings on doubt and unbelief (Mk.8:17).
#2. Lack of discernment, implying dullness (Mk.8:17).
#3. Ignorance, indicating lack of interest and study (Mk.8:17).
#4. Hardness of heart, meaning stubbornness and rebellion (Mk.8:17).
#5. Eyes that cannot see, which is simply willful blindness to Truth (Mk.8:18; Mat.13:14-15).
#6. Ears that will not hear, which is willful rejection of Truth (Mk.8:18).
#7. Dull memory, suggesting willful forgetfulness (Mk.8:18).
 
My friend, ALL these reasons are conscious, deliberate, malicious and willful. People should NOT reason, doubt, question, harden their hearts, be dull of seeing and hearing, or be forgetful of what God has done for us. There is NO excuse whatsoever for any of us not to believe the Bible. We all should have enough faith in Christ to meet our every problem.
Those who refuse to consider eternity have a huge problem! Our souls are eternal and shall spend eternity in ONE of two places: Heaven OR Hell! There is a Judgment Day coming! Believe it! Open your eyes! Open your ears and listen to what is said about the Truth of the Bible!

Steps in Salvation

The first step in salvation, is believe,
When the Gospel is heard, it you must receive.
The Lord Jesus, you must trust and accept,
For just He alone, from Hell can protect.

Faith in Jesus as Saviour, stops God’s wrath,
When we walk with the Lord, on the right path.
Justified by faith, means we’re not guilty,
Our sins are forgiven, and we are guilt free.

Sanctification, is what we next find,
Set apart for God, which eases our mind.
Baptism by the Spirit, does sanctify,
Means we’re God’s child, and us, He won’t deny.

Glorification, the last we come to,
God’s children will be glorified, me and you.
We’ll all be changed, to a sinless body,
This mortal must put on, immortality.

No sinner shall gain entrance, at Heav’n’s Gate,
Our bodies must be changed, to participate.
Christ shall change our vile body, He has pow’r,
Then we’ll join Him in Heav’n, for e’er, ev’ry hour!

(KJV)

SANCTIFICATION
There is immediate sanctification, but there is also progressive sanctification and complete sanctification. Progressive sanctification is what slowly separates the people of God from the world and makes them more and more like Christ Jesus. Complete sanctification is glorification.
Sanctification differs from justification in several ways. Justification is a one-time work of God, which results in His declaring “not guilty” to those who have believed Him (1 Jn.5:10-13), and accepts the work of Christ on the cross (Jn.3:15-16). Sanctification is a process, which starts with justification and continues throughout life.
Sanctification is a three-stage process, past, present and future. The first stage happens at the beginning of our spiritual birth (Jn.1:12-13; 3:3-8). It is the first moral change, which breaks us away from the power, love and lust of sin. It is where we can count themselves “dead to sin but alive to God” (Rom.6:11). When sanctification begins, we are no longer under sin’s power (Rom.6:14). Our desires are rearranged, as we develop a love of God and His righteousness. We are no longer slaves of sin, but servants of righteousness (Rom.6:17-18).
The second stage of sanctification needs a lifetime to complete. As we grow in grace, we slowly but surely change to be more like Jesus with each passing day (2 Cor.3:18). This process is one of daily spiritual renewal (Col.3:10).
The third and final stage of sanctification happens in the future. When believers die, their spirits go to be with Christ (2 Cor.5:6-8). Since NOTHING unclean can ever enter Heaven (Rev.21:27), we must be made perfect . . . BEFORE we enter Heaven! The sanctification of the whole person . . . body, soul, and spirit, will finally be complete when the Lord Jesus Returns (Rev.19:11-21; Zec.14:1-5), and we receive glorified bodies (Phil.3:21; 1 Cor.15:35-49).
God’s work in sanctification involves all three members of the Trinity. God the Father is constantly at work in His children “to will and to work for His good pleasure” (Phil.2:13). He changes our desires, so that we want to please Him, and He empowers us to do so. Jesus paid for our sanctification on the cross and, in reality, has become our Sanctification (1 Cor.1:30), and Perfecter of our faith (Heb.12:2). The Holy Spirit is the main Instrument of our sanctification (1 Cor.6:11; 2 Thes.2:13; 1 Pet.1:2), and He is the One, the ONLY One, who produces in us the fruit of sanctification (Gal.5:22-23).
Our role in sanctification is both inactive and active. Inactively, we must trust God to sanctify us, presenting our bodies to God (Rom.6:13; 12:1) and yielding to the Holy Spirit. It is God's will that we should be sanctified (1Thes.4:3), and we should be very grateful for that.  
Actively, each of us should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable (1 Thes.4:4), mortifying the deeds of the body (Rom.8:13), and striving for holiness (Heb.12:14), fleeing immorality (1 Cor.6:18), cleansing ourselves from every defilement (2 Cor.7:1), and making every effort to increase our faith (2 Pet.1:5-11). As we pursue holiness, we must always remember that only Almighty God can empower us to do this. The end result of unchanging sanctification is a steady, mature Christian life that will faithfully reflect the nature of our awesome and holy God.
John makes it clear that we will never be totally free from sin in this life (1 Jn.1:8-10), and praise God, the work of sanctification that God has started in us, He will finish (Phil.1:6).

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.

Thank You Father

Thank You Father, for making a plan,
To save the vile souls, of sinful man.
You knew all people, would disobey,
So You sent Christ, our sin debt to pay.

Sinful mankind, will always go wrong,
For they walk the road, with Satan’s throng.
What the world has to offer, they choose,
But when Judgment Day comes, they will lose.
 
Thank You Father, for sending Your Son,
‘Tis a wondrous thing, that You have done!
The plan of salvation, that You made,
Belief in Christ, and our debt is paid!

So many, just refuse to believe,
So simple a way, life they’ll receive.
They think there is something, they must do,
To ever get, a Heavenly view.

Thank You Father, that the poor can gain,
A Heav’nly home, where they can remain.
 Not one penny, will they have to spend,
The simply on Jesus, must depend!

Thank You Father, that cripples can know,
Heav’n can be yours, if you want to go.
Faith in Jesus, can justify you,
And then you can be, one of the few!

Education, money, power, fame,
None can access Heav’n, just Jesus’ Name!
Thank You Father, that it is this way,
Believe what Christ did, on the cross that day!

No matter how poor a person is, no matter if they are crippled, weak or uneducated, belief in what Jesus did on the cross is the only way to Heaven. Scriptures for this poem: (Rom.1:17; 3:22, 26-28; 4:5, 24-25; 5:1-2, 9, 18; Jn.3:15-18, 36; 5:24; 6:40, 47; 8:51; 11:26; 12:44; 20:31; 1 Jn.5:10-13)
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO GOD THE FATHER, WHO IS IN HEAVEN!!!
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.

Thy Will Be Done

Thy will be done in my life, O Lord,
For none other, can my soul afford.
Let me learn Lord, Thy ways to adore,
As I seek to please You, more and more.

Every day that I live, let me seek,
To please You with deeds, and words I speak.
May Your righteous will, be on my heart,
And from worldliness, may I depart.

Let me think on, Jesus’ toil and tears,
Let Thy love for me, erase my fears.
Thy will be done, in each step I take,
Trusting You means making, less mistakes.

On this Earth did trod, Christ’s precious Feet,
Let us store these mem’ries, O so sweet.
Let us remember, hardships He met,
And let us ne’er forget, He paid our debt.

When trials come, to me and to you,
Remember, God’s will is right and true.
He always knows, what for us is best ,
Trusting Him always, gives us peace and rest.

Let’s not wander, from His blessed path,
For doing so, brings His Holy wrath.
Thy will be done O Lord, every day,
For You will always, have Your way!

To disobey You, is like prison walls,
Thy displeasure upon me, shall befall.
Thy will be done always, come what may.
If I want to live, in Heav’n one day.

“Transfer” . . . June 2012 Monthly Message

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

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

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

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

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

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

TRUSTING GOD

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

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

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

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

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

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

Scripture verses for above poem:
(Heb.11:6; Ps.40:4; Jn.6:29; Rev.21:25)

WHAT IF??

What if, I do not accept the Lord?
What is the penalty, in God’s Word?
What if, I keep my mind on lust and greed?
What if, God’s Commandments, I do not heed?

What if, just me, me, is on my mind?
And time for others, I cannot find?
What if, pride is always in my path?
What if, I don’t try to avoid God’s wrath?

What if, I always pick the wrong friends?
And drugs and booze, seem to be my trend?
What if, I do to you, ‘fore you do to me?
What if, I never think, of eternity?

You must be born again, God’s Word is clear!
But most folks the Gospel, refuse to hear!
The penalty, is the Lake of Fire,
Eternal life, must be our desire.

Just two distinct roads, before us stand,
One leads to God, the other, Satan’s hand.
NO one can make, the decision but you,
Choose the right road, and with gusto pursue.

Walk with Jesus, on the narrow path,
‘Tis the only way, to avoid God’s wrath!
Satan’s broad road, leads to Hell’s agony,
Where the bliss of Heav’n, you will ne’er see.

Is YOUR name there?

WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE?

Do you know Jesus as Saviour and Lord?
Most do not; they reject Him, and His Word!
There are many people, our Lord refuse,
Have you rejected Him? what’s your excuse?

Too many hypocrites to that church go,
You’ve never been there, just how would you know?
We need file only one thing on our shelf,
Each single one shall give account of himself!

Do you think you don’t need Christ to save you?
If that’s what you think, you do misconstrue.
Trusting Christ gives life nothing can sever,
Rejecting Him means life in Hell, forever.

Do you perhaps think your sin is too great?
Or do you maybe think for you it’s too late?
Our God can forgive you, please do not doubt,
“Him that cometh to me, I will not cast out.”

Most refuse to believe; what’s your excuse?
Excuses vary in those who refuse!
Do you think our God will no judgment do?
He spared not the angels, why would He spare you?

Some think they can get to Heav’n on their own,
Pride and self-righteousness He’ll not condone.
Not by works of righteousness which you do,
Only God’s tender mercy can save you!

What’s your excuse, on this beautiful day?
Friend, only Jesus, there’s no other way!
I pray you won’t say: “I’m not ready today,”
For it’s an excuse, and it’s the wrong way!

 WHAT WE HAVE IN CHRIST

A love, we can never understand,
O' so awesome, and so very grand.
Life on Earth which on Him we can rely,
And one yet to come, where we'll never die.

Righteousness, that is never foggy,
Given to us by God, e'er so free.
Peace that continues, day after day,
Staying with us now, and always.

A rest so perfect, with no worry,
Just Jesus to this rest, has the key.
A wondrous joy, that will never cease,
Day after day, it shall just increase.

A hope, that no one can take away,
We know Heaven will be ours, one sweet day.
A future glory, that's always bright,
For knowing He'll always, be in sight.

A light that can never, e'er be dim,
For that Light, comes directly from Him.
A happiness, that shall continue on,
A blessing that comes, from God's own son.

A deep down strength, that is never frail,
With Christ on our side, we cannot fail.
A purity, that cannot be defiled,
A blessing because, we are God's child.

An unseen beauty, that is always there,
That which the devil, cannot impair.
A wisdom, that no one can confuse,
This wisdom, Christ's Spirit did infuse.

These blessings, will always abundant be,
Now and in Heaven, eternally.
Our Home in Heaven, shall never end,
Our Master, Saviour and greatest Friend.

Without Jesus

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.

VERILY, VERILY

Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Jesus says this oft, to you and to me.
And whene’er He uses these special words,
I advise you to listen; He wants to be heard!

Nicodemus came to Jesus in the night,
To discuss God’s Kingdom; that was the plight.
Jesus simply said to him, e’er so plain,
Verily, verily, you must be born again.

The Jews tried to trap Him, what e’er He’d do,
He did great wonders; they did misconstrue.
Verily, verily,” He said to them in strife,
You must believe God sent me to have eternal life.

Jesus tells we can’t live by bread alone,
We must accept His work, our sins to atone.
Verily, verily, He’s the One God has giv’n,
The ‘True Bread’ the Father has sent from Heav’n.

Verily, verily, I say unto you,
I pray you listen, for His words are true.
“He that believes on me, has eternal life,”
What little to ask, and we’re rid of strife.

He offers eternal life; o’er and o’er again,
A ‘gift’ of God, thru’ Christ, He tells so plain!
“Verily, verily,” He’s saying to you,
Open your heart; let Him in; so easy to do!

WE RECEIVE

God’s Gift; eternal life we receive,
When by faith, in Christ’s Name we believe.
This places us into God’s fam’ly,
We’re His children, for eternity.

When by our faith, we are “born again,”
God plainly states we are His children.
Many blessings on us will befall,
When we stand for Christ, straight and tall.

We receive Christ’s Spirit, to abide,
To help us live, what e’er may betide.
He convicts us of sin; helps us pray,
Gives us wisdom and pow’r, day after day.

We receive peace, in our heart so deep,
A blessing we abundantly reap.
This peace will not ever go away,
Jesus gave it; and it’s here to stay.

We receive great love that comforts us,
‘Tis truly a blessing, so precious.
And this wondrous love, we must pass on,
For we must imitate God’s own Son.

We receive joy in our soul, that o’er flows,
Another blessing, our God bestows.
Joy in knowing, a mansion awaits,
And we’ll be welcome, at Heaven’s gate.

We do receive true contentment too,
As our life with Jesus, we pursue.
Godliness with contentment is great gain,
Following Jesus, is not in vain.

We receive from God, many blessings,
So much to His children He brings.
His near Presence, is one of the best,

WE SHOULD HAVE NO FEAR

“To live is Christ, and to die is gain,” Phil.1:21
And I know in death, Christ will sustain.
“I will never leave nor forsake thee,” Heb.13:5-B
A wondrous promise, one of many.

Passing thru’ waters of life or death, Is.43:2
He’ll never leave us if we have breath.
There to console and give us power,
My loving Saviour is there, ev’ry hour.

God has not giv’n us a spirit of fear,” 2 Tim.1:7
But pow’r and love, for He’s always near.
Tho’ thru’ the valley of death I walk, Ps.23:4
I have the nearness of Christ, the ‘Rock’. 1 Co.10:4

Fear is cast out, there’s no fear in love, 1 Jn.4:18
Replaced with joy and peace from above. Jn.14:27
He is our peace, granting victory, Ep.2:14
His merciful love does set us free.

We do not have faith, if we have fear, Mk.4:40
For His sustaining love is always near.
Neither death, nor life, nor any pow’r, Ro.8:35-39
Can keep us from Christ’s love, any hour.

What About

What about our Triune God, do you believe?
And have you in your heart, the Son received?
There are so many gods, in the world today,
And so many cults, that teach so many ways.

What about salvation, is it works or grace?
Do you one day, want to see Jesus’ Face?
Works won’t get you there, no matter how many,
God’s grace and your faith, gives life eternally.

What about Almighty God, and Creation?
Or do you believe, in evolution?
God does not say, man from apes descend,
God’s Word supports Creation, this it defends.

What about forgiveness, forgive and forget?
Does God really forgive us, all our sin debt?
Christ died to redeem us, from all iniquity,
Believing this gives us, life eternally.

What about the Lake of Fire, which is Hell?
Do you believe that millions, there shall dwell?
God’s vengeance, will be on those who don’t obey,
The Gospel of Christ, and go the devil’s way.

What about Heav’n, are there mansions there?
Have they been prepared, with precision and care?
If there is a Heav’n, there is also a Hell,
Please friend, consider, which place shall you dwell?

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 IS A CHRISTIAN?

A Christian starts by being ‘born again’,
Not physically, but spiritually, friend.
This happens the moment you believe Him,
Trusting Christ brings to God’s fam’ly within.

When we’re ‘born’ into the fam’ly of God,
On another path, with the Spirit we trod.
We must not stay ‘babes’, instead we should grow,
In the grace and knowledge of Christ to know.

We’re then clothed in a ‘robe’ of righteousness,
Just from our Saviour can come this pure dress!
We should then let our light shine before men,
God will liken us to a wise man only then.

‘Born again’ gives us fellowship with God,
We’re of the ‘same mind’, and the same accord.
Lest we’re born of water, and the Spirit,
We can’t see Heaven, let alone enter it.

Once we trust Jesus as Saviour and Lord,
‘Tis our duty to “Continue in His Word.”
We’ll then know the Truth, and that Truth is He,
And that v’ry Truth shall indeed make you free!

Only after we’re saved, do good works come in,
Fight the good fight of faith, turn from your sin.
You are a living sacrifice to God,
As on that steep, rugged pathway we trod.

As ye have received Christ, walk in Him,
If you walk in His Spirit, the world gets dim.
We walk by our faith, and not by our sight,
Let Him lead the way, your path will be bright.

As you run your race, let nothing beset,
We must look ahead, never back, nor fret.
Eternal life waits in Heaven above,
Thanks be to Jesus, He did it in love!

1 Pet.2:2; 2 Pet.1:5-9; 3:18; 1 Jn.2:6; 5:5; Heb.6:1; Is.61:10; Rev.3:5; 4:4; 7:9; 19:8 ;
Jam.2:17-20; Gal.5:16; 1 Tim.6:12; Phil 1:27; 2:2)

WHAT IF??

What if, I do not accept the Lord?
What is the penalty, in God’s Word?
What if, I keep my mind on lust and greed?
What if, God’s Commandments, I do not heed?

What if, just me, me, is on my mind?
And time for others, I cannot find?
What if, pride is always in my path?
What if, I don’t try to avoid God’s wrath?

What if, I always pick the wrong friends?
And drugs and booze, seem to be my trend?
What if, I do to you, ‘fore you do to me?
What if, I never think, of eternity?

You must be born again, God’s Word is clear!
But most folks the Gospel, refuse to hear!
The penalty, is the Lake of Fire,
Eternal life, must be our desire.

Just two distinct roads, before us stand,
One leads to God, the other, Satan’s hand.
NO one can make, the decision but you,
Choose the right road, and with gusto pursue.

Walk with Jesus, on the narrow path,
‘Tis the only way, to avoid God’s wrath!
Satan’s broad road, leads to Hell’s agony,
Where the bliss of Heav’n, you will ne’er see.

Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the
book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (KJV)
Is YOUR name in the Book?

WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE?

Do you know Jesus as Saviour and Lord?
Most do not; they reject Him, and His Word!
There are many people, our Lord refuse,
Have you rejected Him? what’s your excuse?

Too many hypocrites to that church go,
You’ve never been there, just how would you know?
We need file only one thing on our shelf,
Each single one shall give account of himself!

Do you think you don’t need Christ to save you?
If that’s what you think, you do misconstrue.
Trusting Christ gives life nothing can sever,
Rejecting Him means life in Hell, forever.

Do you perhaps think your sin is too great?
Or do you maybe think for you it’s too late?
Our God can forgive you, please do not doubt,
“Him that cometh to me, I will not cast out.”

Most refuse to believe; what’s your excuse?
Excuses vary in those who refuse!
Do you think our God will no judgment do?
He spared not the angels, why would He spare you?

Some think they can get to Heav’n on their own,
Pride and self-righteousness He’ll not condone.
Not by works of righteousness which you do,
Only God’s tender mercy can save you!

What’s your excuse, on this beautiful day?
Friend, only Jesus, there’s no other way!
I pray you won’t say: “I’m not ready today,”
For it’s an excuse, and it’s the wrong way!

2 Pet.2:4-9; Ep.2:8-9; Jn.3:15-18,36; Jn.8:24; Jn.6:37)

YOU MUST BELIEVE

You must believe, or God will reject
All you do, and He will not protect.
We must believe on our Saviour’s Name,
To be God’s sons, and receive His gain.

God laid in Zion, a Chief Cornerstone,
Elect and precious; to most, not known.
On His Name, they simply won’t believe,
Just thru’ Christ, God’s blessing you’ll receive.

You must believe on Christ Jesus’ name,
Or a day will come, for fear and shame.
You shall recall, in deep agony,
Each time you heard of His love and mercy.

There will come a day, when you’ll regret,
When the prison of Hell, does beset.
You’ll wish you did listen, ‘bout the Lord,
To the one who brought, that precious Word.

Each time you reject, your heart hardens more,
Instead, you should open, your heart’s door.
Each time you reject, God’s wrath does increase,
He’ll give to you Hell; and never peace!

I’m sure you’ve heard of Heaven above,
And about our Saviour, and His love.
He’s the ONLY WAY, the ONLY KEY,
To spend life in Heav’n, eternally!

Your Mansion

Will your mansion in Heav’n, be bigger than mine?
Will it be furnish’d, with luxuries so fine?
Will it shine so bright, by the street of pure gold?
As the glory of Jesus, you behold?

If my dwelling place were small, I’d care not,
I’m so grateful for this place, Jesus has bought!
A tiny cottage, on a side street would be great,
For all Christ Jesus has done, I appreciate!

What an awesome Saviour we have, He paid our price,
Went to the cross for us, was our Sacrifice!
He redeemed us, with His wondrous, precious Blood,
Privileged we are, for that sacrificial Flood!

Don’t worry ‘bout how big, your mansion will be,
Christ will rightly provide, for you and for me!
On that old rugged cross, Jesus took our place,
So that one, sweet day, we’ll see, His Holy Face!

Our mansion in Heav’n, Jesus controls the size,
Who are we, that we should ever criticize!
A small cabin, in a place out of the way,
Would be all right with me, on that special day!

I’m not worthy, nor want, fancy luxuries,
I want just to serve Him, for eternity!
The dwelling place for me, that Christ shall provide,
I’ll gladly accept, and for e’er, there reside!
