DON’T GET IT TWISTED

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!

Feed the Flock of GOD

the Stainned Gless of depicting the Holy Spirit.

written by Belinda Magee

Some ministers, some teachers,
Some pastors, some preachers,
Prey on the ignorance of GOD’S human creatures.

GOD’S WORD says to “feed the flock of GOD”,
But instead some of these leaders rob
The way GOD meant it to be
For HIS people to not be taken advantage of, but to see

HIS POWER,
HIS GLORY,
HIS JOY,
HIS AMAZING GRACE,

HIS MERCY,
HIS HEALING,
HIS GREAT LOVE,
All the time and in every place.

THE HOLY SPIRIT we are to receive,
To help us with the enemy that wants only to deceive.
The thief steals, kills, and destroys,
GOD sent JESUS for us to enjoy

Through Worship, and Praise, and Witnessing for HIM, too
Not to be idol worshippers boasting through pride of their just due.

Leaders of GOD should not deceive
But help men, women and children with salvific belief.
To spread THE GOOD NEWS and to see THE GLORY,
So that we can tell this wonderful story
That JESUS died for us and rose with POWER!
And our lives can and will be changed this very hour.

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!!!

GOD’S ACTIONS

Photo of the Book of Isaiah page of the Bible

written by BeLinda Magee

(This poem was inspired by reading Psalm 12:1 and Isaiah 59:19.)

Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
Psalm 12:1

…When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
Isaiah 59:19

You cannot afford
For your life to be bored,
And tangled with cares of this world.

Get in accord
With GOD‘S HOLY WORD –
It is a two-edged SWORD.

To fight life’s enemies,
With RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PRAYER that conquers,
Be clothed as well with SPIRITUAL ARMOR.

You can even say, “Help LORD”!
This is part of GOD’S HOLY WORD.
Then watch GOD’S ACTIONS which
cannot be ignored.

OLD TESTAMENT FACTS POEM

Moses with the tablets of the Ten Commandments...

Image via Wikipedia

written by BeLinda Magee

(To demonstrate GOD’S creativity resulted in this Old Testament poem by reading its powerful words.)

Beginning with emphasis,
Is the first book, GENESIS.
All creation is discovered
About ALMIGHTY GOD and HIS MIGHTY WORK.

The Leader, Moses, with GOD’S People
Have an exit in EXODUS,
They didn’t know the solution
Would be aqueous.

The priestly tribe of Levi
Is contained in LEVITICUS.
When the people disobeyed GOD,
Now that was iniquitous.

Forty years in a journey
Can be studied in NUMBERS.
GOD’S rebellious people, though protected,
Did make many blunders.

Unfaithfulness and disobedience
Is found in DEUTERONOMY,
Moses spoke of GOD’S LAWS
But GOD’S people had a mind for autonomy.

JOSHUA follows the death of Moses,
He received GOD’S COMMANDS,
With new and unknown adventures
And everything that imposes.

Idol worship and rejection of the LORD
Resulted in JUDGES,
When GOD’S People were defeated,
They had many grudges.

Naomi and Boaz were loved by RUTH
She gleaned in the fields,
Also great-grandmother of King David,
And that’s the truth.

Samuel, Saul , and David
A prophet, and two kings
Are mentioned in a huge manual,
Which comprises I & II SAMUEL.

Good and evil things
Are the reports they bring,
When you read and study
The history of I & II KINGS.

As we continue, King David still reigns
There is nothing quite ironical,
Followed by Solomon and other kings
This is I & II CHRONICLES.

Then comes book of EZRA
He was GOD’S helper.
Praying and praising GOD
Surely, he was not a slacker.

Next book is NEHEMIAH
He knew GOD’S People would not tire,
As long as they had a “mind to work”
Their responsibility they would not shirk.

GOD’S People were hated
On the scene comes ESTHER,
Risked her life to become queen,
That was no conjecture.

Enduring great suffering
Was a rich man named JOB.
His friends thought he had sinned,
They foolishly began to probe.

The longest book in the BIBLE is PSALMS
With poems, prayers, praises and songs,
One can find relief in them
They produce a great calm.

Want to read a collection of sayings
And powerful statements that don’t disturb?
Including wisdom and poetry – superb
This next book is PROVERBS.

ECCLESIASTES & SONG OF SOLOMON
You will discover joy with them,
They speak of Wisdom and Poetry and Love,
No other like this that comes from above.

The book of prophet ISAIAH had a big task at hand
He spoke for the LORD to the people
About their future in the land,
As long as they had GOD in their plan.

JEREMIAH has prophecy as well
This book of war has a story to tell.
Although GOD was leading him,
He was put in a jail cell.

GOD’S People had greatly sinned
As a result, they were punished then,
Jeremiah’s sorrow brought his LAMENTATIONS,
With these people, he had great consternations.

Then comes a priest and a prophet, EZEKIEL,
Who warned of GOD’S PUNISHMENT and SWORD,
Sounds like some previous BIBLE BOOKS – a sequel?
If only the people would hear the WORD OF THE LORD!

Oh, the next great prophetic book, DANIEL
A good example with his friends,
Who taught us how to handle
Ourselves with integrity, prayer, and visions,
Not an inkling of a scandal.

HOSEA, JOEL, AMOS, & OBADIAH
These prophetic books tell what it requires
Not to sin and how to reap bountiful blessings
Oh, what great and inspiring lessons.

JONAH, MICAH, NAHUM, & HABAKKUK
Inform you how not to get stuck,
And not to get set in your stubborn ways,
These prophets will help you all of your days.

ZEPHANIAH and HAGGAI,
ZECHARIAH and MALACHI

These prophetic books remind us
That THE ALMIGHTY GOD will reward and punish,
That THE ALMIGHTY GOD is always nigh.

Adore the King of Kings

(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!!!

Something to Prove

Homeless and hungry

by BeLinda Magee

God made us vessels – LIVING
Don’t let your bodies produce the wrong kind of giving.

You’re on display,
Don’t make it a dismay.

You don’t have to be nervous,
GOD just wants your reasonable service.

Let the world see from you and me
The MIND OF CHRIST, LOVE, & HOLINESS,
This is GOD’S IDENTITY.

A Lesson to be Learned

Torah inside of the former Glockengasse synago...

written by BeLinda Magee

Help us, LORD
With YOUR WORD.

To understand YOUR COMMANDS,
And PARABLES and PRINCIPLES,
And LAWS and PROPHECY,
So that we may live spiritually.

To understand YOUR LOVE and GRACE,
So that we may run this CHRISTIAN RACE.
To do YOUR HOLY WILL,
Not to just seek a thrill.

YOUR HOLY WORD is true!
Without FAITH it’s impossible to please YOU.
Satan tries to con and deceive us,
As if there’s something new.

Studying and applying YOUR HOLY WORD,
Will make us thorough to go through
A lesson to be learned,
But not to get burned!
