A Tale Of Two Tomes

The finest Moroccan leather tome
sat regally on display,
the Bible from her grandma,
a gift on their wedding day.

Scarcely touched pages still snowy white
graced by golden filigree,
sitting safely inside the curio
for all passersby to see.

To have such a lavish copy as this,
one might say they’re quite blessed
but God looking down from heaven
felt sad rather than impressed.

She told herself she should read it
but with busy cares of life,
work, family and pressing plans,
with excuses her mind was rife.

So sacred writ sat there year after year
just merely a decoration
not life giving words to be read and loved
to procure a soul’s salvation.

****************************

But not very far away

on the other side of town

lay a Bible on an oaken coffee table

its cover, a faded brown.

Sticking out from the bottom of this tome

that looked to be bruised and battered,

blue ribbon that served as a bookmark

hung limply, its end frayed and tattered.

Upon opening the much used Book

the pages were yellowed and worn

many were scribbled with notes

and some damaged and slightly torn.

One look at this bestseller’s spine

revealed a binding quite loose.

There was even a page stained purple

from unexpected spilling of juice.

Tear stains were found throughout

that could not be denied

from the owner of this Blessed tome,

evidence she was moved and had cried.

Turning through the threadbare pages,

declared that its leaves were hue loaded,

with verses that with colored pencils

had been categorized and coded.

There were browns for repentance, blues for baptism,

reds for the Holy Ghost,

purples for holiness, greens for creation,

with the One God yellows, the most.

To the eye of the average beholder

this manuscript, not a pretty sight

but God looked down from Heaven

with wonder and delight.

For the Bible was never meant to be

just an ornamental frill,

but to be read and loved and believed

its wisdom, our lives to fill.

No treasures can be found

in pristine and unturned pages

only gold diggers of this Holy Book

can extract the Rock of Ages.

Failing Marx

“Thus Heaven I’ve forfeited, I know it full well.

My soul, once true to God, is chosen for Hell.”

Karl Marx(author of the Communist Manifesto) – excerpt from a poem written in 1837

I reject the spirit of Karl Marx
and the rampant evil on which it embarks.
It confuses, disturbs, deceives and blinds,
preys on impressionable, youthful minds.

I refuse the spirit of Karl Marx.
To its call I’ll not be one who harks.
A deaf ear I turn to it’s every beckon.
Dead to such lies, myself I reckon.

I despise the spirit of Karl Marx
that’s brought looting and violence to cities and parks
aligning itself with satan’s ploy
to murder, steal, kill and destroy.

I rebuke the spirit of Karl Marx.
How it has ignited hatred’s sparks!
Tempers explode and patience grows thin
with perceived injustice over color of skin.

Yes, I rebuke that spirit in Jesus’ name.
Go back foul spirit, to your pit of shame.
Your gruesome and diabolical toil
isn’t welcome on American soil.

A Better Country

I seek a better country
that is, an heavenly
where sweet peace and righteousness
shall reign eternally.

I seek a better country
a hallowed, celestial sod
where Jesus only does rule
revered by all as God.

I seek a better country
where never is shed one tear
pain and suffering unknown
for sin can’t enter there.

I seek a better country
of its splendors I have heard
prepared by the Savior returning
for those who obey His Word.

I seek a better country
where the forever fashion will be
putting off this veil of flesh
to dress in immortality.

I must enter into that country
whatever sacrifice I must make
for only then will my soul be satisfied
when in His likeness I awake.

“But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.” Hebrews 11:16

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” I Corinthians 15:52,53

“As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.” Psalm 17:15

Is It Party Time?

Here is the church.

Here is the steeple.

Open the door,

but where are the people?

They should be inside.

There’s plenty of room.

 Due to pandemic lies

they’re meeting on Zoom.

They were told temporarily 

stay home for your health,

yet it was propaganda

sneaking in by stealth.

We need to recover

this freedom we lost.

Let us ask ourselves

“Will we pay the cost?”

It’s up to you.

It’s up to me.

Perhaps once again

we will dump Boston tea.

When Queen Covid Quakes

wicked queen

 

Covid 19

she sits as a queen;

her rule, in very grave error.

Mainstream media seen

on many a screen

promoting her reign of terror.

 

 

She’s forcing compliance

based on false science;

making each subject wear mask.

Some will not make alliance,

rise up in defiance

Face coverings, they take to task.

 

 

She bids you bow knee

to her Marxist decree

close your business that’s deemed non-essential.

Many can’t see

that their destiny

brims with communistic potential.

 

 

At one word she does jeer

for it fills her with fear,

but I think it’s just divine.

Let’s rise up and cheer.

Shout that cure in her ear.

Hydroxychloroquine!

The Writer Of My Story

writing-bible-scroll

The perfect pace

of His comforting grace

has brought me thru many a trial.

Whate’er I face

as I run life’s race,

He aids me to go the next mile.

 

 

My God makes it known

that I’m never alone.

I’ve never by Him been forsaken.

My mind’s  often blown

with the wonders He’s shown.

By blessings I am overtaken.

 

 

He’s that constant friend

on whom I depend,

in sunshine and in rain.

He’s faithful to send

the ideal blend

to my life, both joy and pain.

 

 

I’m fully persuaded

each day I am aided

by the Writer of my life’s story.

I have anticipated

with breath that is bated

for that moment I’ll see Him in glory.

BUT CONTINUE…..

rioting

Evil men and seducers do wax worse and worse
Many with actions to say the least, terse
With rioting, looting, as they scream and curse
BUT CONTINUE

Through lies, propaganda, the simple ,deceiving
And through self deception their own myths believing
Diabolical iniquity their minds are conceiving
BUT CONTINUE

It’s a spiritual battle, be this understood
Of those calling good, evil and evil, good
Wanting to bring crime to your neighborhood.
BUT CONTINUE
Bible background
Continue in the Word of God you have learned.
Continue in righteousness. Let sin be spurned.

Continue in Scripture to sink your roots deep.
Continue in wakefulness. Don’t fall asleep.

Continue in doctrine and to it take heed.
Continue in witnessing, sowing good seed.

Continue when you feel at the end of your rope.
Continue, for you have a lively hope.

Continue though the course of this world takes its toll
till you reach the end of faith; the salvation of your soul.

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 2 Timothy 3:13-16

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

“Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” 1 Timothy 4:16

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” 1 Peter 1:3

“Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:9

Fifth Column

_Appreciate_America_Stop_the_Fifth_Column__-_NARA_-_513873

I speak of a subject most solemn
The rise in our land of fifth column
a downhill tread
in which masses are lead
gaining momentum of slalom.

With sleight of hand, downright delusion
They’re stirring up hatred, confusion
to the gullible soul
taking fully, control
in critical thinking’s exclusion.

These swindling no good magicians
some disguised as our own politicians
sing a misleading medley
with lyrics so deadly
they may be our country’s morticians.

The term “fifth column” referred to ancient warfare, where two columns of soldiers were in the middle of the battlefield, with two flanks on either side. The fifth column was spies who had infiltrated the enemy camp to demoralize and confuse them. This practice was used by Philip II of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great, who took gold from the mines near the Greek city of Amphipolis and used it to bribe citizens of Athens to betray their city. These paid betrayers and bribed politicians would organize around themselves what have been referred to as “useful fools” or “useful idiots,” naive people who actually believed their propaganda.

No, I Will Not Get Used To It

 

No, I will not get used to it, the wearing of a mask;

for accepting forced facial coverings is just too much to ask.

 

No, I will not get used to it, oppositions of falsely called science.

Although it is often promoted, I raise my voice in defiance.

 

No, I will not get used to it; mainstream media lies that I hear.

I reject the constant fear mongering. To their voice I turn a deaf  ear.

 

No, I will not get used to it. I don’t want to defund our police.

It’s indecent and lacking in common sense. The idea just plain needs to cease.

 

No, I will not get used to it; corruption hiding behind safe health guise;

for truth is never satisfied to take a backseat to lies.
