On Temptation

The Mini Monoverse Story Of Temptation

 

Serpent’s thread,

Hath God said

you’ll be dead?

Do not dread.

Eat instead.

 

With her eye

Eve did spy

Fruit nearby

Bought the lie

And did try.

 

Thing called sin

Entered in

To begin

Guilt within

For all kin.

 

Satan’s game

Still the same.

God defame

Sin looks tame

Brings no shame.

 

Must insist

God assist

To resist

devil’s twist.

Get the gist?

Gen 3:1  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Gen 3:2  And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

Gen 3:3  But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Gen 3:4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Gen 3:5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Gen 3:6  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Gen 3:7  And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

 

 

Jam 1:12  Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

Jam 1:13  Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

Jam 1:14  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

Jam 1:15  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

 

1Co 10:13  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

  1. Oh, the power of a lie. Yet, Jesus in me is far greater than Satan’s temptation. What victory!

    Great poem. Have you published a collection of your poetry?

  2. Hi Karen, (morningjoy)

    Thanks be to God who gives us the victory! Thanks for your compliment. No I have not officially had my poems published. Perhaps one day, Lord willing. Thanks for stoppin by today.
