VICTORY: Walking In Faith!



God Tests Our Faith
To Strengthen Our Trust
Not Because He Is Sadistic
Or Plain Cruel
But Because
Our Refinement Is A Must!

Let Us Not Curse The Tree
Because We Do Not Like Its Fruit
When
In The Day Of Famine
We Would Gladly Eat Its Roots!

Let Us Keep Faith With Our Father
Our Father From Whom Comes Our Faith!
Let Us Reason To Be Wise!
Let Us Trust God's Faith
Not Our Feelings
AND
Surely Not Our Eyes
AND
Let Us Let Our Faith Do Our Walking So
That In The Great Day
Christ's Call
Will Carry Us To New Life!

Faith Gives Us The Victories!
Faith Overcomes The World!
Faith Is A Golden Thread
Without Which
A Believer Would Be A Paid-Up Member
Of The Clan Marked For Destruction
Those Known As Unrepentant Offenders!

Walk In Faith
With The Faithful Jesus!
Walk In Christ's Light
For It Illuminates The Dark Night!
Trust In God's Grace
For
Grace And Faith
Are A Winning Combination
Upon Which 
Trust Gloriously Rides
Darkness To Fight!

Trust In God
Is Not Dead
For
Bad Pay Cannot Kill It!
Trust In The Lord
For Then
Satan Cannot You Ride
Into The Blackness Of Darkness
Where Hope Cannot Abide!

Tests Don't Last Forever
BUT
Tried And Tested
Enduring
Overcoming People Do!
Hold On
To The Blessed Hope
- Christ In You The Hope Of Glory -
AND
Put Your Shoulder To The Gospel Plow
For
He Who Tests You
Is The Same God
Who Daily Provides For
Loves
Blesses
Comforts
AND
Abidingly
Carries You
AND
Me, Too!

Satan Is The Liar

AND

Our Victory 
Is In
Jesus Christ!

VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: Savoring Satan





I
 Me
   My
     Mine
        Myself
Are One!
One Person
One Ideal
One Fact
One Foe
No Good Fillip
No Good Gold!

Self
AND
Self-Adulation
Self- Gratification
AND
Self-Aggrandisement
Are
The Lost Soul's Sole Goal!

I
 Me
   My
     Mine
        Myself
Are Strung Out
On
Self Dope!
Self-Made Rope!

I
 Me
   My
     Mine
        Myself
Speak
To Self
About Self
For Self
Because Of Self
Identifying Self
AND
Creates Its Own Savor
AND 
Is Its Own Savior!

How Ridiculous!
What's Wrong With Saying
I
 Me
   My
     Mine
        Myself?

Nothing ... By Itself!
BUT
When Every Single Solitary
Syllable Of Speech
Stems
Starts
AND
Spreads Out
Like A Line-Dried White Sheet
Then ... THEN
Is When You Know
That Self
Is Savoring Satan
Imbibing His Delusions
His Wine
His Willfulness
Forgetting That There Is The Eternal God
Seeking
To Save A Soul Lost
Who Is Walking Wild 
AND
Blind
AND
At Fearful Cost!

Oh.

Give Self To The Savior
AND
Satan Can't You Sway!
Give Self To Satan
AND
You Are On A Hellbound Cruise
Called
Own-Sin Pay-day!

That's Awful Harsh! 

So Was The Savior's Sacrifice!

Oh.

How Erudite You Are! Not!!

I'm Sorry!
It's Just That
All The Years
Everybody Said:

"Lift Up Your Self
For
Self-Made Always Gets Fed!"

It Seemed Sooo ... Simple
But How You Put It
It Is Just ... Saaaad!

Self Without A Savior 
Is
The Self ... Sacrificed
On The Altar Of Ambition
With Greed As The Steed
Pride As The Nose-Ring Lead
AND
Satan Aggressively Stimulating
Your "Felt" Need!

Anything
That We Can Do Without
Is Not A Need!
What We Need
Really Need
Is The Savior!

And ...

The Savior Says
Seek First
The Kingdom Of God
AND
His Righteous
AND
All Good Things 
Will Be Added On
To Me 
AND
To You!

Well ...
Since You Put It Like That
I Will Acknowledge
That I Am Self Centered ...! 

And ... 

I Shall Say That
If You Acknowledge
That You Are By Self
Cornered
AND
Appeal To Jesus
For Relief
He Can Do A Good Thing
In AND For
You!
Salvation In Him Is Achieved
AND
Satan Can You Any Long Deceive!


I Like That!
You've Got Yourself A Deal!

God Be With You!
Blessings Await!
Satan Is The Liar!
Leave Him
To His Just Fate!
Ignore His Sly Titillate
AND
His Tried
Tired Tittivate
AND
You Will Gain The Right
By Trusting
AND
Obeying
Our Lord Jesus
To Enter The Heavenly City
Through
The Protected Gate! 





NOTE TO FILE: God Is All!

Knowing Pain ... In This Life
Is Inevitable

BUT
Accepting Misery ... Into Your Life
Is Optional!


The Great Themes Of The Bible
Are
Love Faith 
Belief Honor 
Trust Obedience
Worship Sacrifice
Grace Mercy
Judgment Salvation 
Stewardship 
Redemption Elevation
Friendship Kinship
Confession
Repentance Restoration
Jesus Christ - The Open Door
Holiness Unto God
Satan Is The Fraud
Temptation Is Not A Sin
Yielding Is What Get's You Done In!

A Man Without God
Is 
A Man Without Hope
Who Is
Relying Upon His Own Ingenuity
With The World
AND
Satan To Cope!
That's Reckless!

What We Are Not Permitted To Have
Are The Very Things
Satan Beguilingly Extends Toward Us
Sure
AND
Confident
That He Has A Nibbler On The Line! 

Satan's Sworn Task 
Is
To Make Sure
That God's Glory Does Not Shine!

Misery Likes ... Company
Even If
It's An Enemy Or Two!
AND
Satan
- Misery Personified -
Cares Not
How His Rolls Are Made Up
As Long As They Contain
The Beloved Children
That Jesus Christ Died To Save
More Than One Or Two
Even Me Or You!

The Plan Is Diabolical!
The Execution Is Devious!
AND
The Executor Is Damned!

Distrust
Disbelief
Disobedience
Disgrace
Dishonor
Real Shame In The Face!
Idolatry
Self-Service
AND
Denial Of Christ The Lord
Make A Day Of Work
To Satan
Something About Which He Will Say 
He Is Justifiably Proud!

Justification As A Descriptor 
For Satanic Work 
Is Straight Up Satanic
For
There Is No Justification For Evil
No Matter How Hard The Evil One Works!

We Have The Promise
That
Those Who Live Godly Lives
Will Know Persecutions!
We Also Have The Promise
Of Relief And Release
From The Holy Son Of Man!
On This Word
We Can All - Upright - Stand!

Jesus Loves You
Me
AND
All Men
AND
He Went To The Cruel Cross
Every Last One Of Us To Defend!
We All Receive Equal Defence!

Our Souls 
Are Worth More Than Gold And RubiesAND
It Is A Price That No Human
Or Devil Agent Can Afford
AND
If We
- By And In Faith -
Live Godly Lives
Waiting On The Promises Received
We Shall Go Home
To Live With The Lord Christ
Where There Is No More Night
Or
Any Desire To Leave!
We Must To Jesus Cleave!

Stand Up For Jesus!
Stand Up For Our Holy God!
Stand Up For Jesus
AND
Sin
Can't Tie You With Its Benighting Cords!

Trust God 
AND ... Obey
Today 
AND... Every DayAND
At The Appointed Time
The Cause Of Your Sin
AND
My Sin
- Satan -
Will
- Like The Atonement Day Scapegoat -
For All Our Sin
Have To Pay!

Satan "Ate" Our Lunch
AND
He Will Find Out
That It Was Not For Free!
Jesus Christ Provides Us With Supper!


NOTE TO FILE:

Stay Away
From Satan

By
Standing Up
For Jesus Christ The Lord!
Jesus Christ Is The Savior God!
Satan Is The God-Fraud!

HAPPY SABBATH + PRAYER : Father, Draw Me Nearer!





Oh, Thou Who Hearest Prayer
I Acknowledge That Indeed
I Am Flesh - Weak
Daily Dying
Constantly Grieved
Often Crying
And
Come Before Thee
As One Humbled
In The Light Of Your Sacrificial Love
Thankful For Your Grace
Which - To Me -
Is Unmerited Favor
Praising You
For The Gift Of The Faith Of My Jesus
Bowing Before Your Free Mercy
Rejoicing In Your Love That Will Not Let Me Go
Claiming The Promises That Are Eternally True
Glorying In
And
Glorifying The Coming King
Resting In The Comfort
Correction
And
Teaching
Of The Holy Spirit
Walking The Narrow Way
Free
In The Protection Of The Holy Angels
Blessing The Eternal God
Who Is Jealous For My Love
And Saying
I Love You, Lord!


Help Me, Father

To Ever To Lift Up My Voice In Praise
And
Bow My Head In Worship
And
May In Ever Be So
For I Desire To Attain The Right
To Walk Through Heaven's Gate
Beckoned By Him
Who Is The Door!


Lord,
I Desire Cleansed Eyesight
Ordered By Your Oversight!


I Desire To Be Led
And
Sheltered

And
Protected
By Him 

-The Good Shepherd -
Who Gently Leads
The Little Flock
And

Who Carries The Young Ones In His Bosom!

I Desire, Lord
To Rest
In Peace
In The Bright Mansions
In Zion
And 

To Walk
- Unmolested -
On Streets Of Gold
In The Protected Fold!


I Desire To Drink Of The Water
Of The River Of Life
Knowing
That Never Again
Will My Life Know Man's Striving
Nor
The Devil's Strife!
Lord, Please Haste The Day!


Oh, Father
I Desire To Eternally Abide
In That Rest
Under Everlasting Arms
Sheltered With The Blessed
Some Of Whom Will Have Championed The Faith 

With The Martyr's Sacrifice
All 
Having Their Known-Sin Confessed!
Keep Us, Lord, Until The Day!


Father, 
You Are Able
To Prepare A Seat For Me
At Your Welcome Table
And I
- Believing That Your Promise
Can Never Be A Fable -
Ask You To Fix My Heart To Yours
With Christ's Shed-Blood Cable!

I Am Yours, Lord!

Father,

I Beseech You To Draw Me Nearer
And
Help Me To See You More Clearly
And
Hold Your Love To Me More Dearly
For
I Am Eager For The Great Day
When Home Is Where
I Am Forever Living
With You!
In That Name
The Worthy Name
- Jesus Christ The Righteous - 
I Stand And Plead
For
I Have No Other God But Thee!
AMEN.

Two Minds Looking For One Shoe?!



Every Family
Has Sheep And Goats
AND
Every Family
Has A Black Sheep
AND
A Wild Goat!
The Family Called Mind
Has Many!

It Is Like This ...

Mindful And Mindless MarriedAND
They Had Themselves The Thing Called Progeny!
These Were ... Interesting
For The Minds Suffered From
OR
Were Afflicted By ... Inbreeding!
There Was No New Blood
AND
They Just Had The Same Old Thoughts
Performed The Same Old Actions
Indulged In The Same Old Attractions
AND
Revelled In The Same Old Reactions
Which Were All Done
In The Same Factions
Which All Seemed To Be In Traction!

Those Minds All Suffered 
- An Awful Lot -
From That There Disease
That Is Called Inaction!
They Were  All Afraid
To Make The Final Transaction!

Anyway ... Long Story Short

As Life Would Have It
New Blood Entered The Fold
AND
You Must Be Told That
The New Blood Was Old
AND
Yet New
AND
People Were No Longer To Life
Indifferent
AND
Cold!

Consternation Was In The Clan CampAND
Many Minds Were Seen
AND
Heard
SINGING
- With Despair -
In Short Pants!
It Was A Sight To Behold!
Some Sang A High Descant!

The Cause Of The Consternation ...

Conformed Mind 
Married
Transformed Mind
Who Had A Grown Child
- From Another Marriage -
Called Renewed Mind
AND
Battle Lines Were Drawn
Because
Finite Mind Was Vexed
- Blue Vex -
With Tiny Mind
Who Had Eaten His Cheese
Even Sharing It With
Resolute Mind
- The Change Agent
Of Lord God Divine -
Renewed Mind's Father!

You See
Renewed Mind Could Not Keep A Secret!

Well, After That ...

Things Went Nuclear!

Listen To The Talk Of A New Mind:

People, People!
I Bring To You
A True Story That Says
God Renews
Naughty-Hearted Minds
Wrong-Minded Minds
Old Wives-Tale Minds
Wasted Mind
Minds Askew
Minds Split
Minds Hard Like Bricks
Minds Given To Tricks!

I Tell You
The Story Of The Gospel
The Good News
That Says
To Get Rid Of Sin
Let Jesus Christ
- For You -
Give Satan Real Licks
AND
You
- Free Of The Fiend -
Shall Walk Straight To
AND
For God ... Faithfully!
No More Fickle-Mind Tickles
No More Mindless Tricks!

The Point ... Please?!

A Man Halting
Between Two Minds
Is A Man
Caught
Between A Rock
AND
A Hard Place
Where Satan Is Quite Pleased
To See Him Remain
Because
This Shows
That That Man's Religion Is Vain!

Let This Mind Be In You:

Christ In You
IS
The Hope
- Your Hope -
 Of Glory
Starting What He Will Finish
AND
Finishing What He Has Started!
So, Please
Be Not As One
Close Minded 
Or Hard Hearted
For
- By So Being -
At The Time Of The Coming
AND
The Arising
You Will Not Be Among
The Dear
But Among
The Discarded!

If Satan Is God Serve Satan 
BUT
If The Living God Is The Lord ... Serve The Living God
With Godly Fear
In A Contrite Heart's Humility!

Trust God... And Go!



But Why Do I Always
Have To Be The One To Go?!
Because I Want You To Go!

I'm So Tired!
Why Can't Sadie Go?
Sadie Never Walks Straight!

What About Bonnie!
Bonnie Is Never On Time!

Denis Could Go!
Denis Is Not Here!

But I ...!

As The Story Goes ...

This Used To Be Cry Heard
Often
In The Old Days!
One Person
Was Always Being Sent To Do The Errands
Whilst The Others
Always
Had A Way Of Escape!

Our Father God
Sent His Beloved One
Who Now In Turn Says ...

I Am A Sending You!
Go In Faith
And
Do The Work!
I Will Equip You
And
I Have Healing Balm For Your Hurts!

Do Not Look At Who Is Not Working!
Do Not  Look At Those Who Work Short Shrift!
Do Not Look At Those
Who Refuse To Take Up A Load
Just Go Where I Send You!
I, Jesus Send You
And With You 
I Will Go!

By Faith
With Love
Work Out Your Own Soul's Salvation!
The Day Of Accounts
- Reconciliation Day -
Will Show All
That Was Hidden Away!

My Instructions Are Clear:

There Will Be Foes To Alarm
AndThere Will Be Frets In The Night
But See That You:

  • Walk In The Light
  • Do Right
  • Deliver The Message
  • Giving The Trumpet That Certain Sound
  • Walk In Faith
  • Trust Not Your Own Eyesight
  • Don't Stray From The Way
  • Keep Your Eyes Fixed On Me
  • I Am Your Jesus! - Turn Not Aside
  • Eat Not Their Bread
  • Drink Not Their Water
  • Trust In My Word
  • Don't Follow The Runaway Herd!


Take My Peace!
Receive My Rest
And
Sabbath With Your Savior
And
Your Soul Will Be Blessed!


  • Think Not Your Own Thoughts
  • Speak Not Your Own Words

Be The Child
Trained Up By Me
Speaking My Words
And
Walk Humbly
Dressed In My Garb
Showing That By My Character
You Are Thereby Enrobed!

Lift Up Your Cross Daily!
There Is Grace To Help Daily!
Pray Daily
Constantly
Instantly
And
You Will Have Have Faith
For The Day
Daily!

Remember That ...

Protection Is Yours
Not Always Promised For The Body
But 
Always Promised For The Faithful One's Soul!
Remember John The Baptist!
Remember The Apostle Paul!
Remember Me, Jesus!
And
Remember The Law Giver
My General Moses!
Saint's - Dead Or Alive -
Bodily
Will Be Raised Glorified
Immortalized
But
The Unrepentant Sinner
- Body And Soul -
Lost
Will Be Burnt
By My Consuming Fire!

So, Beloved ...

Trust My Call To You
And
Where I Send You ...GO!
And
With Enduring Faith
You Will With Me
To Eternity
Go!

In My Father's House
There IS A Place Prepared Just For You!
