WOULD ONE REMAIN LOST WHEN FOUND IS SO NEAR?
Remember reading about Moses?
As Moses lifted up the image of the snake in the wilderness for the Hebrews of old,
so the "Son of Man" had to be be lifted up later for all of us.
Why not take a look at Him?
Why not consider his claims, while you are still alive. You could die any day, you
know. Jesus was lifted up on the cross for all to see. Preachers have preached Jesus
and His cross for almost two thousand years.
If the Hebrews of Moses' time
wanted to live, they had to see the bronze snake, a symbol of death, but it became life to
them. It became life because God said that if they looked at the image of the snake held
up on the pole they would not die from the plague that was killing all of them.
Normally snakes are associated with Satan, the tempter in the Garden of Eden. In this
case, however, the image of the snake symbolized Jesus later victory over Satan, the
snake, by his crucifixion. Jesus is lifted up now for all to see. He is the symbol
of dying to the world and living with God. He is made to be never-ending life to
those who see and believe in Him. Can you see Him up there above the maddening
Whoever believes in Him will not perish, but will be given eternal life.
Because God, who created us loved the world so much that He gave His only directly born
Son that whoever looked and believed in Him after His crucifixion and resurrection would
not perish, but would have everlasting life.
|AWAKENING FROM THE EVIL DAY
Everywhere he looks
stupid, ignorant people
for one more thrill
and fools with guns
for one more kill
He hates his life and sucks dry
peanut butter off the knife pours cold milk down his throat and like a goat chews burnt
toast squinting into to morning sunlight lifts his hand toward the heavenly host gathered
around the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost and does not know and does not see the hidden enemy
standing in between.
Everywhere he sees
stupid, ignorant people
swarming around town
like killer bees
hunting someone down
He sees the church
and the steeple
opens the door and
stares at all the prosperous
stupid, ignorant people who do not know his name and have no idea why he's there nor why
he came until an old man's warm embrace opens his eyes in Jesus' name
Starving Men With No
Taste for Bread
Who once were living, but now are
dead to every other interest clandestinely surfing the Net for pictures of naked women;
the "babes" of the Net that come from all over the world where they have been in
front of cameras lying bare, exposed head to foot to a million hungry stares as the nation
enters another night in anticipation of the hunt for nudes and masterbation; on and on and
into the early hours of morning they roam the endless steets of cyberspace and a few are
already wondering if it ever gets any better than this; then they creep into bed,
these denizens of the world wide web, sated for now, but tomorrow's slaves to every site
where they can be found, looking for another shape, another pose, black, white, yellow,
brown, and red, the universal nude; a million men; overworked and underfed.
|No one seeks God
nobody raises their eyes
their throats are open graves
their hearts full of lies
Nobody gives a damn
no one sighs
for the tragedy of a man
bleeding, naked and stark
nobody hears the cries
of the her baby fetus
when he dies alone in the dark
Oh, my God!
It seems so odd!
So crazy to be
in this place
one of the human race
Oh, my God! Its very odd!
to watch laughing fools
go round and round
Oh, my God! How odd!
to be sitting here in this place in this time breathing and thinking inside this
strange body of bones, muscles, and blood...
while everyone is cheering and the
runner is carrying a pigskin toy across the goal; while everybody is eating popcorn
and drinking coke; while everyone is marrying and giving in marriage, and making
My God how odd to be here now that
the end is come; to see people like sheep and goats rounded up and cut into herds... sheep
to the right, goats to the left...
no one laughs; no one
smiles; there are no plans; not a wife or husband can be found... oh my God,
how odd to finally see that you are finally God!
The mouse ran up the clock
the clock struck one
the mouse ran down
hickory dickory dock
While the king's soldiers
rocked and socked
the maddening crowd
stood around and mocked
When the cross was raised
and he hung by the nails
demons sung and Satan raved
and did not know that now
by faith we would be saved
Who is the wise one of this age Who
is he who cries out have mercy on us Jesus have mercy on us jesus ? Who is the
sage that sees from the east to the west the end of the age; who sees
lightening , judgment and rage ? Who has ears to hear and eyes to see and faith to
make him free?
Let the games begin
let the singers sing
and the flingers fling
let all the homosexuals do
their anal thing
and enjoy their
because its all perfectly natural
so let the dogs to it
and the cats also and the snakes
and the rats
Let all the silly games begin
let every rule
break and bend
let the world
to its end
as singers sing
and flingers fling
and fliers fly
and diers die
|The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the
One who created everything that exists.
