P S A L M 23

(From reading the wonderful scriptures of GOD’S HOLY WORD in PSALM 23, the following expressions are my interpretations about OUR SAVIOUR, CHRIST JESUS )

Psalm 23

S – THE LORD is SHELTER in the time of a storm or any danger.

H – THE LORD IS A HEALER because by HIS STRIPES we were healed.

E – …EXCELLENT IS THY NAME IN ALL THE EARTH! (Psalm 8:1)

P – THE LORD IS OUR PRESENT HELP in troubled times.

H – THE LORD IS OUR HOPE for tomorrow.

E -…saith THE LORD, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to GOD. (Romans :11)

R – THE LORD IS OUR REDEEMER.

D – THE LORD IS OUR DELIVERER.

DON’T GET IT TWISTED

Cover of "Humility"

Cover of Humility

by BeLinda Magee

Don’t get it twisted
If your name is not listed
In THE LAMB‘S BOOK OF LIFE
For causing envy, division, and/or strife.

GOD lets us all in on HIS sunshine and rain
Be on the road to HUMILITY,
Don’t get lost on the road of being vain.

What do I see when I look at you?
Do I see A CHILD OF GOD or expensive shoes or a new hairdo?

Do I see in you ALMIGHTY GOD?
Or are you representing a facade?

To possess GOD’S POWER, one can obtain it this very hour.
Only believe and ask for WISDOM or begin by saying, “Help LORD”,
GOD can fill you with HIS HOLY SPIRIT
It says so in HIS IMMUTABLE WORD.

The GOSPEL OR “GOOD NEWS” OF JESUS CHRIST,
Has all we need for our life.
It’s knowing about the “GOOD NEWS”
That will take away the “blues”.
If we’re in despair, be reassured
THE ALMIGHTY GOD ALWAYS CARES.

THE ALMIGHTY GOD HAS GRACE, MERCY, AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE,
That can come only from UP ABOVE.

But let’s consider our attitudes.
They can determine our level of latitude
To climb to GOD’S expected altitude
With possession of enough gratitude
To thank OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.

OUR HEAVENLY FATHER allows HIS SATISFYING RAIN
To fall on the unjust and the just.
OUR HEAVENLY FATHER allows HIS BRIGHT SUN
To warm anybody and everyone.

In THE WORD OF GOD, we have been told
That we can be very bold.
We may have to spiritually fight
THE ALMIGHTY GOD wants us to know what’s right.

THE ALMIGHTY GOD allows HIS GRACE
For us to run in this CHRISTIAN RACE.
Where is our forgiveness for our enemies, where’s the compassion?
Now, let’s see our reaction.

Through THE WORD OF GOD it has been shown
That we are not our own
So why should I look skeptically at you
When my ways might be askew.

Don’t be fooled
But rather be schooled
THE ALMIGHTY GOD is not a respecter of persons
HE is a respecter of HIS PRINCIPLES.
For with the kind of seeds we sow
The same seeds will grow.

We may have great aptitudes
But let’s consider our attitudes
They can determine our level of latitude
To climb to GOD’S expected altitude
With possession of gratitude.
THANK YOU, HEAVENLY FATHER,
FOR YOUR LOVE, GRACE, MERCY, TRUTH, SALVATION and POWER!

A Poem about The HOLY BIBLE

A presentation edition of a GOD'S WORD bible

Image via Wikipedia

written by BeLinda Magee

GOD’S INCOMPARABLE WORD, THE HOLY BIBLE
Is definitely not liable,
If we do not understand
Its PRINCIPLES, LAWS, AND COMMANDS.
Of what ALMIGHTY GOD meant
Through HIS SON, JESUS – HE sent
To all mankind -
Men, Women, and Children,
Seeing or Blind

For those that are brave
Or for those that fear
For those that can or cannot hear,

For those that can or cannot talk
For those that can or cannot walk,
No good reasons to be made,
All excuses will have to fade.

By reading THE HOLY BIBLE it can enlighten our understanding,
To give us a smooth and safe landing,
Or to climb a very high altitude
Without being prideful or crude.

In GOD’S WORD (THE HOLY BIBLE) we can soar
Yet be humble to seek GOD for HIS WISDOM and more.
It’s for acquiring faith, comfort, and  GOD’S PEACE,
And conforming to the image of JESUS CHRIST -
Unnecessary stress will have to cease.

To obtain knowledge, and wisdom, and learn about HIS unconditional love,
That only comes from OUR HEAVENLY FATHER above.
To learn to give HIM Thanks,
And to learn how not to yield to sin,
And to learn by using GOD’S WORD, this is the way to gain power to win.

Have you received THE HOLY SPIRIT because you believe?
GOD’S SON, JESUS, died and rose again for us to freely receive
THE HOLY SPIRIT who guides us into all truths.
THE HOLY BIBLE reveals infallible proofs.

By reading and studying THE HOLY BIBLE there’s help on all these levels,
And to learn how to love your enemies -
And to learn how to resist the devil.

And to learn how to love,
And to learn how to pray,
And to draw nearer to ALMIGHTY GOD,
To know that JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY -
TO SALVATION.

NEW TESTAMENT POEM

the first of the Epistles to the Colossians

Image via Wikipedia

written by BeLinda Magee
(The “OLD TESTAMENT FACTS” poem can be found in the July archives)

As we enter the New Testament
These twenty-seven books are quite relevant,
That GOD’S HOLY WORD is excellent,
GOD – THE FATHER, CHRIST THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT
Are quite prevalent!!!

ST. MATTHEW, ST. MARK, ST. LUKE, and ST. JOHN
Relate the spiritual battle of good versus evil -
already won.
These four gospels testify of JESUS’ good news,
With this information, none of us should lose.

The work of the HOLY SPIRIT appears in the book of ACTS
Read how the men of GOD deliver the facts.
Have you received the HOLY GHOST, since you believed?
If you have not, you can freely receive.

Then follows the book of ROMANS
About Paul’s spiritual letter to them – he’s not a showman.
He described powerfully the HOLY SPIRIT vs. the flesh,
They had no excuse to be involved in carnal mess.

When Paul wrote books, 1st  & 2nd CORINTHIANS,
Surely, his letters were to saints and not barbarians.
We learn about JESUS’ teaching and GOD’S AMAZING GRACE
Which is more than enough to stay in this Christian race.

Next, Paul appeals in the book of GALATIANS,
The people there required an exorbitant amount of patience.
Instead of the HOLY SPIRIT, they dealt with the flesh,
Paul’s letter to them corrected that mess.

With the book of EPHESIANS
There are many reasons
That Paul’s letter to them
Was for all seasons.
Blessed is GOD who gives us spiritual blessings in heavenly places,
We still have, although, idiotic cases.

When Paul wrote to the PHILIPPIANS at Philippi,
He wanted them to rejoice thereby,
Knowing the ALMIGHTY GOD is nearby.
And to think on those things that are good and pleasant,
To be joyful, and not be depressant.

In the book of COLOSSIANS, Paul wrote to them as well,
He always had spiritual information to tell.
He wrote about seeking CHRIST and those things from above,
That JESUS CHRIST died for us and rose again -this is GREAT LOVE!

1st & 2nd THESSALONIANS,
1st & 2nd TIMOTHY,

These books mention inspiration, and not sympathy.
This always fits in the Christian society,
About the coming of the LORD,
To pray and give thankfulness,
And to always preach GOD’S HOLY WORD.

What a great assignment for one to afford
Paul encourages TITUS as a companion in the LORD
The book’s emphasis was to express Christian duties,
So that there would be no calamities.

The letter of Paul in the book of PHILEMON
About a slave and master relationship – not a heathen.
This proposes a very good reason,
To be received by the church there with grace during any season.

Next comes HEBREWS where we learn more about CHRIST,
We are reminded that JESUS was the perfect sacrifice.
Examples of faith and to follow peace with all men,
This book contains powerful chapters – more than ten.

Then there is the poignant book of JAMES
Which reminds us that faith without works is dead.
Effective and intense prayer from the righteous,
Avails much to be witnessed and spread.

1st & 2nd PETER, a Leader,
1st & 2nd & 3rd JOHN, dearly Beloved,
These books were written by men of GOD.
Exhortations to holiness,
To be followers of CHRIST,
To keep GOD’S WORD,
And to love one another, not strife.

In that tiny book of JUDE,
The ungodly are crude,
The ungodly are lewd,
The ungodly are rude.

Last, but not least, is the book of REVELATION,
Where GOD gave John an elevation,
To reveal to the nations
CHRIST JESUS is coming again is his affirmation.
Whether you’re at home, in an auto, a building, a church, or bus station,
CHRIST JESUS WILL RAPTURE ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE HIS BLOOD RELATION!!!

(My poem was inspired by reading Psalm 144:11-15 and Romans 8:5-23.)

“Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.” Psalm 144:15

I’m a child of THE KING
I’m a child of THE KING

Not a king with earthly bling
But THE KING with HEAVENLY RINGS

There are pearly gates
With a street of gold
The HOLY BIBLE says it is so
That’s how I’ve been told.

You can be included in this ROYAL FAMILY
Deny yourself, take up your cross
JESUS’ WORDS also say, “Follow me”.

JESUS was crucified, is risen, and coming again
Will you be found still tangled in sin?
The HOLY SPIRIT wlll guide
THe HOLY SPIRIT will keep
Whatever you sow is what you will reap

To be an heir with THE LORD OF LORDS,
To be an heir with THE KING OF KINGS
Is there a better, more powerful cling?
Than to want to be a child
Of THE TRUE AND LIVING KING!!!
