PRAYER: Lord, Keep My Conscience ...!


Dear Lord,
Grant Unto Me A Conscience
That Is Controlled By the Holy Spirit Of Truth!
Bless Me To Do Your Will
So That I May Spend Eternity With You!


I Do Not A Desire An Overworked Conscience
That Is Ever Feeling Guilty ... Just Because! 
I Desire A Conscience That Feels Guilty
When By Sin 
I Have Broken Your Holy Laws!


Help Me Not To Ignore The Pinpricks Of
My At-Work Conscience
So That I Can Go Off And Be Free
To Sin And Do Wrong With Impunity!
Lord,
Help Me To Ever See My Jesus
As He Paid For My Sin
On That Cruel Cross On Mount Calvary!


Help Me, Lord
Not To Rely On My Feelings
Because Feelings Can Be Convinced
To Anything Do!
Help Me Ever To Accept 
The "Thus Saith The Lord!"
Help Me Not To Make Shipwreck Of My Faith!
I Do Not Want To Be To You A Disgrace!


Remember My Brethren
All The World Around! 
Help Those Who Are Calling! 
Help Them To See Light
So That Before The Dark Night 

You May Be Found!

Bless The Brethren To Bank Their Faith

In Jesus Christ The Lord
And
Help Us All Not To Grieve Away The Holy Spirit
By Ignoring Truth
And
Walking Blind In The Ways Of The Fraud!


Take Our Hands! 
We Are Reaching Out! 
Take Our Hearts! 
They Are Calling Out! 
Take Our Eyes! 
Take The Beam Out
And
Make Sweet Our Voices
As Over Sin
By Doing The Right
We Gladly Your Praises
Shout Out!


Let Not Sin Have Dominion Over Us! 
Let Peace Reign In Our Hearts! 
Let Not The Light Of Truth
From About Us
From In Us
Ever, Ever, Depart

For
We Love You, Lord 
And
In Jesus Christ's Holy Name 
We Pray
And Humbly Plead
For Your Great Mercies
Of Which We Stand In Dire Need!
AMEN.




VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: SATISFACTION IN SIN: Balaam Beor

Balaam Beor
Was A Fraud
AND
A Prophet
For Whom Satisfaction Came
Only From Profit!

Balaam
Son Of Beor
Beat His Faithful Ass
Until The Lord Gave It A Voice
Which Caused
The Profit-Driven Prophet
To Answer It
As Though It Were Human!
He Didn't Have A Choice!

Balaam
Knew God's Truth
BUT
Being Of Deceitful Ilk
Petitioned The Eternal
- Not In Innocence -
To See If God
Would Think As He Thought
So That He Could Get His Grubby Hands
On King Balak's Coinage
That Would
In His Loving Hands
- By His Ecstatic Rejoicing -
Gloriously Clink!

Balaam Sold Out His Soul To The Devil
Because
Greed
In His Soul's Armor
Was A Really, Really
Really Big Chink!
It Was A Big Hole!

So Big Was That Hole
That A Whole Satan
Walked Comfortably Through
Never Touching The Edges
So That Balaam Thought
- Wrongly -
That
He Was Doing His Own Do
Never Realizing
- I Conjecture -
That Practice
Wears A Nun Robe
AND
Did Not Recognize
That Against The Living God
He Had Become
A Raw Sinner
Another Adversary
- Pretend Friendly -
AND
Studiedly Bold!

A Little Sin
- Cherished -
Becomes
A Lot Of Sin
- Relished -
AND
You Can't Control It
For
It
- Triumphing -
Controls You!
Your Life Becomes Hellish!

The Story Of Balaam
Is
A Cautionary Tale
A Tale With A Tail
That Does Constant Flail
At This Time Of The End
When Men's Hearts Do Wax Cold
Where Love For The Other
Is Something To Be Sold
When Profiteering Is Laudable
Where Faith In God Is Laughable
Where Truth Has No Beauty
AND
Love For The Living God Is A Nasty Cootee!

I Ask You, Brethren
To Sincerely Search Self
For The Chink In Your Character
For That Lesson In Your Book Of Life
For Which You Always Score An "F"
Because
That Is The Lesson
Which Will Continue To Be Your Test
Ever Getting Harder As It Pertains To Jesus Christ
AND
Ever Easier As It Pertains
To The Base Perpetrator Of Wickedness And Vice!

Think On This ... Carefully:

Just As An Innocent Oyster
Is Impregnated
In Under A Minute
- So As Not To Immediately Kill It -
With A Grain Of Sand
To Make It Produce A Precious Pearl
So, Too, Are We ... But In An Instant!

The Difference 
Is Who Is Doing The Impregnating
AND
For What Purpose
AND
Do We With It Agree!

Oysters Have No Say
In Their Impregnation
AND
They Also Have No Say
In What Color Pearl
What Size Pearl
What Iridescence
It Shall Produce
BUT
We Do!

Balaam Beor
Was Known
To Be A Prophet Of God
Known To Work Enchantments
Known To Utter Curses
Knew The Ways Of God
Had Great Light From God
BUT
Willfully
Wickedly
Knowingly
Treacherously
Greedily
Disobediently
Used It All
For The Glory Of Satan
The Base Fraud!

Satan Is A Thief
A State-Line Robber
A Murderer
Who Impregnates
To Kill Twice
BUT
Jesus Christ
By His Holy Spirit
Indwells
To Give Us
Abundant Life Now
AND
Eternal Life Later!

What Is In Your Soul?
Is It The Light Of Life
The Glow Of Heaven
ORIs It The Seed Of The Serpent
The Bloat Of Corrupting Leaven?!

When You Know WHAT In You Grows
You Will Know WHO Causes It To Grow!
What Are You Raising
For Your Harvest?!

Balaam Son Of Beor
Got The Sword Of Damnation
In His Chest
Because
Those Who Willfully Cause Others To Sin
Get The Same Punishment
As Those Committing The Sin!

Think, Dear Ones
On These Things
AND
Convicted
AND
Convinced
Let Jesus Christ
Of Your Whole Life
Be
The Crowned And Reigning
Laboring King And Captain
To Direct Your Life
AND
Fight
All Your Battles
Against The Adversary Of Souls
Who Cherishes The Night!

Look Unto Jesus The Christ
AND
Keep Heaven
In Your Eye Sight
For
Night Comes
AND, THEN
The Getting Up Morning!
Judgement Morning!

HAPPY SABBATH + CHOICE: Profit Or Loss!




What Is The Point Of Earthly Gain
When There Is No Heavenly Profit?!
Where Is The Blessing
In Reaching The Success Pinnacle
Holding The Bank In Your Hand
Grasping The Grapes Grown By Felt Need
AND
Having No Access To Eternity
Because The Creator God
- Our Savior Redeemer Friend -
You Despised 
In Your Overarching Greed?!

In Your Hour Of Trial
Will Your False God Plead For You?!

Is Your Seen God
Your Refuge And Strength?!

Is Your Touched God
Your Shepherd Who Will Your Life Defend?!

Does Your Perishable Bounty
Come Without Sorrow?!

Is Your Blessing Today
Going To Bless You In God's Sweet Tomorrow?!

Does Your God Made
Give Unto You Peace And Rest
Or
Does Your God Only Heap Upon Your Weary Head
That That Gives Stress?!

Brother! Sister!
Hear Me Well:

All That You Have Will Perish!
That Is The Promise Of God
For
Man Brought Nothing Into This World
AND
He Will Nothing Take Out
Save A Name:
Saint!
Sinner!
Blessing!
Curse!

What Will Be Your Legacy?!

Know This ...

It Is Not Yet Too Late!
This Way To Destruction
- By You -
May Be Reversed
When You Give Your All
To The King Of Life
The Master Of The Winds And Waves
The Only One Through Whom
A Repentant Sinner's Life
May Be Preserved!

It Takes Just One Step
To Come To King Jesus!
It Just Takes One Step
From Sin To Turn Away!
It Just Takes One Step
To Have A New Beginning!
It Just Takes One Step
From Hell And Damnation
To Walk Away!


Are You Willing
To Reach For Salvation?!
Are You Willing
To Walk On The Path To Life ?!
Are You Willing
To Deny The Lie And The Liar?!
Are You Willing
To Accept The Free Offer Of
Eternal Life With The Lord Christ?!

Brethren,
When Here And Now
Is In Your Heart
Hereafter With Jesus
Will Never A Start
So
Look Beyond What Is
Unto That, That Is Promised
Believing That The Word Is Sure
AND
The Spilt Blood Of The Beloved Jesus
Is
- For Our Sin -
The Known
AND
Only
Cure!

Be Wise Unto Salvation!

PRAYER: I Surrender All, Lord!





By Faith, Dear Jesus
I Claim You
And
I Make You Wholly Mine
Even Though I'm Human
And
Thou Art Divine!


The Spirit Of God Called Me
And I
Free-Willed Said "Yes!"
And
To The Heavenly Father
In Your Blessed Name
My Known Sin
I - Convicted -
Now Confess!


Oh, Father To The Faithful!
Eternal God On Heaven's Throne
I Come To You Humbled
But
I Do Not Come Alone!


My Jesus!
My Savior!
Your Beloved Son
The Sinless Spotless Lamb
Is My Only Mediator
And

My Name Is Written
On His Marred But Ever Holy Hand!

Jesus, Savior
Please Plead For Me
For
Without Your Intercession
I'm Just A Dead 
Totally Lost 
Cast Out
Condemned Damned Member 
Of
The Clan Humanity!


Father,
I'm Confessing!
I'm Repenting!
I'm From Sinning Turned Away!
Jesus Christ Is My Shepherd
And
By Your Holy Spirit
I Will Follow Him Everywhere!


My Heart In Me Is Broken!
My Spirit Is Wholly Contrite!
Do Not Despise Me, Lord God
I'm Trusting In The Promises

In The Good Book Detailed!

Help Me, Dear Jesus!
Help Me Fight
For Victory Over Sin

To Stand Up In Lively Faith
And
To Hope Strong For The Ideal
Purchased For Me
On Mount Calvary!

This Is My Soul's Desire!
Help Me Or I Will Fail!

I Have Been Foolish!
I Admit It! 
I Walked With Willfully Blind Eyes
And 

I Paid Dearly For It!
Often With Regret
I Cried!

But, Now, Father
I See And Know My Need
And

It Is As The Holy Spirit Shows!

Please, I Beseech Thee
In Jesus Christ's Name
Do Not From Me
Take Your Gentle Spirit Away!


I Have No Other God!
I Have No Other Friend!
I Have No Other Home!
Lord Jesus, I Beseech You! 
Defend! Defend!

Without I Am Alone!

Please Do Not Let Me Become A Soul
From Eternal Life Turned Away!

Make Me A New Heart
A New Mind
A Willing Spirit
Make The Way Plain For Me
And
Send The Guardian
To Help Me Walk In The Truth
Steadily Firmly Faithfully Upon It!


I Give You My Life, Lord!
Use Me! 
I Am Willing! 
Bless Me And Equip Me To Serve You!
Here's My Heart! 
Please Fill It!


Father, 
By Your Sweet Spirit
I Have Decided To Follow My Jesus!


Lord Jesus,
Where You Lead Me
I Will Follow!


Oh, God Of Glory
Pour Out Of Your Holy Spirit
Upon This Sinful Flesh
For I Need The Infilling!
I Desire The Cleansing!
I Desire To See Him In Peace
Who Purchased For Me
Of Holy Heaven
A Perfect Piece!


I Love You, My God!
Grant Unto Me In This Hour
Your Blessing Of Sin Relief
Your Blessing Of Perfect Peace
Your Daily Grace That Is Sufficient For Me
Your Mercy That Is Ever Free 
And
Of
Eternity To Come
A Tiny Taste!
I Worship You
Father
Son
And
Holy Spirit!
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!

Muscle Memory + PRAYER: I Give You, Lord, My Deceitful Heart!





I Had Lost My Way!

I Applied My Tongue To Cussing
AND
I Became A Curse Bird!

I Applied My Eye To Spying
AND
Became a Tatler:

Would You Like To Hear A Lil' Word?!


I Ran Around
Getting Into Other Men's Matter
Enjoying The Appellation
"Tha' Is De Expert!"

BUT
When The Tables Were Turned On Me
I Ran And Sat Down Righteously
In The Front Pew Of De People Church!

As Is To Be Expected ...

Good Behavior In Me
Di'n Long Last
For Soon
I Was In De Know
In Evahbody Bidness
AND SOON ENOUGH

There Was Bacchanal
For My Flighty Fiery Tongue
Through The Good Offices Of My Eye
Led To A Sold Out Show!

I Had Pledged To Reform!
By Cold Turkey, I Had Quit
BUT
Things In De People Church
Had Been Too Delicious
AND
Before Old Tom ... Cat
Could Lick He Split Ear
I Was In Foremost Lady Cora House
Hauled Up In She Easy Chair!
She Is Such A Dear!

Truth Be Told ...

Things Did Not Work Out
As I Assumed They Should
Because
Cora Was Not Called The Foremost Lady For Nothing
For
I Was Taught a Lesson
That I Will Never Forget
When She Turned The Rough-Table 'Pon Me:

  • Do Unto Others
  • Think Before You Speak
  • Give And It Will Come Back To You Just Not In The Way You Expect 
  • Plant Indian Corn: Guinea Corn You Will Not Reap, And
  • Preach The Gospel But Not Through Lying Teeth
  • What One Practices Is What One Performs
  • When One Walks In Broken Shoes One Will Get Corns

Lady Cora Is An Old School Teacher
AND
Her Lecture Was ... Well
You Judge:

When One Practices Folly
Foolish Is What One Becomes
AND
Giving The Red R A G In Your Mouth Gossiping Muscles
Marks One As Just Plain Dumb!

Foolish Gossip Is Double Jeopardy!
Living As A Bone Carrier
Is Simply Foolhardy!
You've Got A Fat Tongue
AND
A Permanent Squint In Your Eye
AND
Your Heart Is Just Plain Rotten!
Don't You Know That Gossipers 
To Almighty God's Heaven Won't Fly?!

After That Oh, So, Calmly Delivered Tongue-Lashing
You Should Have Heard My 


PRAYER:

Dear Lord, 
I Retire From
And
Repent My Participation In
The Gossip Game
And
I Willingly Give To You
My Deceitful Heart
My Itchy Ears
My Lying Eyes
My Seared Conscience
My Fiery Tongue
And
Beseech You
In The Name Of The Holy Jesus
To Keep My Feet
On The Path Of Peace
And

Off Of Satan's Oiled Easy Street!

Help Me, Please
To Mind My Own Business
- The Business Of The Living God
And
Jesus Christ's Soon Return -
So That
In The Great Day Of Vengeance
- Saved As One Enduringly Faithful
By Your Now Available Grace -
I Shall Ascend To The Great Reward!
I Love You, Lord!
Remember Me!
AMEN.

Divine Communion vs Pleasures Of Sense





Solomon The Wise King
Sought To Know :

Wisdom
Madness
Folly
AND
Pleasure
AND
This Is His Finding:

  • The Search Is A Vexation To The Spirit! 
  • Much Wisdom Equals Much Grief 
  • Increased Knowledge Increases Sorrow
  • Knowledge Without God Is Foolishness
  • Abundance Without Temperance Is Gluttony
  • Pleasure Without Principle Is Sin-Making
  • High Honor Without Humility Is Self-Raising
  • A Life Without Limits Is Lost
  • Living Without God Does The Soul Cost
  • Paying Homage To Other Than The Lord Who Gives Life Makes One A Horse Pasture For The Wild Steed Name Strife!
  • Honor And Glory Are God's
  • Praise And Thanksgiving Are The Lord's
  • Comfort And Rest Are The Spirit's Domain

AND
  • All True Blessings Accrue To Those Who Do Not The Great Name Profane


Solomon The Wise Fool Repentant 
Also Found Out That ...

The Spirit Of The Living God
Abides With Those
Who Diligently Seek After The Holy God
With Whom Is Profit
Presently Real
AND
Also Waiting To Be Fully Realized
In The Dreadful Awful Day
When The Light Of Life
Breaks
The Eastern Sky!

Sin Has No Profit
AND
Neither Does Monetary Gain
When The Gain Gives The Willful Self
Over To That Lying Murdering Satan
-  The Not-A-Comic-Book Elf -
Who Takes Perverse Pleasure In Perversion
Who Lifts Up Unrighteousness As A Great Grace
AND
Who Torments Tickles
AND
Tantalizes
All Who Will Not Take
- Nor Stand In -
Their God-Given Place!

Wine Is A Mocker!
Strong Drink Rages Around!
A Fool Is Not Wise
AND
A Man Wise
Standing Firmly Grounded In God's Truth
Cannot Be Kept Down!

Know God And Do Good!
Love Your Creator!
For Your Fellow Man Care!
Seek God's Holy Spirit
AND
The Words Of Life Share!

Know This ...

Angels Shall Attend Thee
As In Christ's Faith You Walk
AND
They Will Influence Thee For Good
So That You Lift Not Your Head In Pride!

Therefore  ...

Live By Humble Dependence
On God's Free Mercy
AND
Daily Grace
AND
That Damned Satan 
Is 
By Jesus' Holy Name
Ably
Firmly Withstood!


Self Leads To Sin
And
Satan Rejoices!
Grace Is The Gift Of God
And
Our Gratitude
Is
Own-Soul Minding!

AND

Truth Is ... 
Trust In Jesus Christ
Causes Us To Be Able
To Daily
Prayerfully
Say

"Thanks Be To God!"
As On To Zion Hill
We Are Faithfully Climbing!

**--**--**--**

Let Us Seek After
The Living God!

Two Kisses!!

Two People
Kissed Christ Jesus
AND
Both
Kissed Him With Great Intent!

Forgiven Mary Of Bethany
Kissed Her Known Savior
BUT
Unyielding Judas Iscariot
Kissed Just Jesus
Just To Get What He Would Never See Spent!

Mary Used Her Pennies
To Purchase That
With Which She Would Anoint 
He Who Alone Will Save Her Longing Soul!

Judas Iscariot
Willingly Sold Gold
To Get Silver
BUT
Received Dirt
Because His Unrenewed Heart
Was Devilishly Cold!

Two Humans Close To Jesus  ...

One Bowed Down In Loving Worship
AND
In The Great Day Will Be Raised Up
To See God's Glory
While That Other
- Lifted Up In Pride -
Looking Upward
- Wanting Power By Which The World To Rule -
Shall
Will Surely
In The Day Of Appointment
Forever Die
Because
He Chose The Wiles Of The Devil
For His Life's Intimately Personal Guide!

Dear Brother!
Dear Sister!
I Appeal To You!
Please Do Not Permit Satan To Manipulate You
With Promises Of Earthly Gain
For Disobedient Living
In A Soul Sin-Stained
AND
A Nose Ring
With Known Evil As The Connecting Chain!

Please Know That ...

Little With Contentment
Is Of Great Gain
When The Creator Of The World
Is Holding Your Leading Rein!

Be Contented
With Whatever The Good Lord Gives You
AND
Be Satisfied
Wherever The Good Lord Sends You
AND
Places You To Serve Him By And In Faith
AND
Do Not Pretend To Yourself
That You Are Much More
Than What The Omniscient God Made You!

Please Do Yourself A Grand Favor And ...

Do Not Look To See What Others Have!
Do Not Rush To Rise High
Only To Be Cast Down
By Stern Rebuke
AND
Being Enormously Prideful
In Retaliation
Doing That That Is Egregiously Bad!

Do Not Think That The Omnipotent God
Is Not Omnipresent
AND
Is Caught At Unawares
When You Indulge In Sordid Affairs!

AND
Do Not Think That Your Machinations
Will
The Sovereign Will Of The Eternal God 
Change!

A Small Word To The Wise ...

Disobedience And Willful Ways
Build The Holding Cage
Where The Unrepentant Wayward Soul 
Awaiting Damnation
Sojourns

BUT

Faithful Obedience And A Willing Spirit
Builds
- By The Lord Jesus -
A Mansion
The Likes Of Which 
Only Divinity Can Fashion!


How Do YOU Stand?!

Two Kisses Were Proffered!
One Kiss Worshipped!
One Kiss Damned!
Which One Are YOU Giving To
The Holy Son Of God
The Returning Savior Of Repentant Man?!

Prophets Profiting By Profiteering!





What Does It Profit A Man
To Gain The Whole World
AND, YET

Lose His Own
Unmerchantable Soul?!

What Is The Profit
In Buying The Word Of Blessing Of A Prophet
Unto Whom The Lord God Almighty

Did NOT Give Utterance?!

Wait Up, Bub!
The True Prophet Of God
Will Not, Will Not
Will Never Ever No Way No How
Accept Money
To Give A Good Word From Almighty God!

Far From That
Maaaannnn
You Can't Even Pay
A True Prophet Of The Living God
Not To Give The Word Sent From God
Be It Good Or Bad!

Wow!
Is That Right?!

You'd Better Believe It!

If That Is The Truth
Then You Need To Tell That 
To These Church-Men Charlatans
Cluttering Up The Airwaves
The Internet
The Print Media
AND
The Church Pulpits!

You Ain't Lie!

Do You Know What Amuses Me
Even Though It Ain't Even Close
To Being Funny?!

No, I Don't!
Do Tell!

ORThey Read Their Bibles Selectively
ORPermit Their Pastors Preachers Teachers
To Tell The Interpretation Of What God

Copyrighted Bibles

"Buts" For Brains

Being Made Broke ...!
