Every once in a while, I like to remind the devil where he’s going and to remind myself where I’m going. Thus, the following poem and Scriptures.
He thought he won a victory
When Jesus died upon that tree
Satan knew not, he was done in
Through Calvary’s triumph over sin, that set us free.
Though he still works yet to deceive
The hearts of them that would receive
His days numbered, yes, this we know
The Holy Bible tells us so, we do believe.
Signs of the times, they do report
The devil’s time on earth is short
And though he seeks to work his will
God shall bring all to a stand still, foul plans to thwart.
And so the darkness cannot last
Lucifer, in the fire cast
The truth shall reign forevermore
At last we will reach Heaven’s shore, trials all passed.
