DON’T GET IT TWISTED

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.

WHAT ABOUT YOU?

Put Off the old man & Put On THE NEW MAN

Quote

If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in JESUS:
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.
Be ye angry and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
Neither give place to the devil.
Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
And grieve not the Holy Spirit of GOD, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as GOD for CHRIST’S sake hath forgiven you.       Ephesians 4:21-32

(My poem was inspired by reading

Thessalonians, Chapter 4 & Chapter 5.)

 

When JESUS cracks the sky
Did you have time to apply?

Before JESUS’ return
Did you have time to learn
Of GOD‘S AMAZING GRACE
To run the Christian race?

Of HIS SAVING POWER
Be filled with the HOLY SPIRIT, right now, any hour.

Doing your own thing?
Immersed in having a fling?

Too busy having a ball,
To heed the final call,
Before the final fall?

If you wait,
It might be too late!!!
