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.

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.

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

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!!!

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!!!

CHRIST JESUS is Coming Again

Jesus

by BeLinda Magee

(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!!!

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!

There is a remedy
To fight that enemy
Not with weapons or hands
But with GOD’S COMMANDS

Applying HIS HOLY WORD
Will supply the sword
To conquer with Love, not hate
Participate with a clean slate

If enemy hungry, then feed ’em
That’s how you’ll win ’em
Providing them food
In that you’re doing good

If enemy thirsty, then give them a beverage
To give you that leverage

To trust what GOD has said
By the HOLY SPIRIT, that’s how you will be led.
