VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: The Lying Song Of Satan + PRAYER: Father, Forgive Me




One Lovely, Lovely Day
I Heard Satan 
Singing 
A Cheerful Song:

"Anything god can do
I Can DO Better!
Anything god Can Do
I Can DO Best!"

Fool - Thy Name Is Human Said:

"Oh, No, You Can't!"

Satan Replied:

Oh, Yes,  I Can!
Oh, Yes, I Can!
Oh, Yes I Caa-aaa-ann!

AND ...

The Fight Was On!

NOW ...

As Any Bible-Believing Christian Should Know
Satan Is An Unremitting Liar To The Umph Degree!
Satan Hates Jesus Christ!
Satan Hates Humans Because God Loves Them!
Satan Wants What God Has!
Satan Is A Counterfeiter
AND
That Is His Star-Card
Hence His:

"Anything god Can Do
I Can DO Better!"

I Should Have 
Known Better
Than To Engage 
With Satan!

I Should Have 
Given Him My Back
Told God Satan Was Me About To Attack
BUT
Noooooo!
I Chose To Battle With Him
AND

In The Very Process
Nearly Lost My Head 
Life!

Literally!

Sufficed To Tell You
Satan Took Me Through
His Alphabet Shopping List
In An Attempt To Show Me
What He Could "DO" With
For Me!

I Was Sore ...
I Was Sorely TempTED!

I Tell You Honestly:
Satan Is Sin!
Satan Is The Tempter!
Satan Knows Humans!
Satan Knows How To Make Humans Sin!
Satan Customizes Temptation For Humans
To Make Humans 
SIN AGAINST GOD!
Because It Makes Satan Happy 
To Make God Unhappy 
Sad His Humans!

Believe You Me
I Yielded To Many Of Satan's Temptations
- They Were Off The Chain Pretty ... Hooks -
Before I Sat Still Long Enough
- Not Just To Hear -
To Listen To The Still Small Voice Of 
God's Holy Spirit
Calling
Chiding
Counselling
AND, YES
- At The End Of One Of My Base Cock-ups -
Comforting Me!

I Had Never Stopped Praying!

It Was Then
That I Learned That
Just Because A Person Has Free Will
To Do As One Pleases
It Does Not Mean That One Should
AND
That Too Much Sweet Can Turn A Belly Bitter!

I Learned 
- The Hard Way -
That
"Wha' Sweet'n Goat Mout'
Does Bu'n 'e 'n 'e Bambam!"

Satan's Calling Card(s)
Singly Or In Combination
- Depending On The Person Involved -
IS

  • Life Without Limits
  • Desire Is License
  • Let No Man Judge You
  • You Are A God So Go
  • Do What Thou Wilt
  • Live Fast - Die Young And Make A Pretty Corpse

AND, STRANGELY ENOUGH
Quoting God (But Misapplied):

  • Tomorrow Is Not Promised!

In All Satan's Interactions
With Mankind
The Temptations
ALL
Fall Into Three CateGORIES:


  • Lust Of The Eyes
  • Lust Of The Flesh
  • Pride Of Life 

OR, Same Difference


  • Stomach
  • Tempting God
  • False Worship


As Satan Puts It:


SIN Is NOT Really SIN
If You SIN For Your SELF
So SIN To Always Please SELF
For 
Your SIN 
Is For
Your Own SOUL'S SWEET SATISFACTION!

I Learned 
That If 
Eye Appreciates It
Mouth Will Eat It
Stomach Will Digest It
AND
Deceitful-Heart Is Well-Pleased!

My Body Was Tackled!
My Heart Was Tickled!
My Soul Was Damned
Near Satisfied
Unto Death
Until I Read:


Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
I Knew I Had Done Evil!
I Knew I Was Doing Wrong
BUT ...
Satan Was Singing Melodiously 
A Melodious 
AND
Enticing 
Utterly Adorable 
"Come-Softly-To-Me!"
Love Song!

Satan's Beat Was Up Tempo!
My Feet Were Tapping Away!
My Head Was In Tune 
Bobbing
AND
My Body ...
Ah, My Body ...
My Body Was Shaking
Shaking Excitedly
Excitedly Shaking Away!

BUT ... THEN

My Teeth Started Rattling!
There Was A Great Humming In My Ears!
My Heart Started Palpitating
AND
All Of Me

Started Trembling
Trembling
Trembling In Abject Fear!

That Night I Feared Sleeping!
At The Dawn I Feared Waking Up!
I Knew That This
Was The Day Of Decision
AND
My Stomach Started Throwing Up!


My Past Called Yesterday
Came Knocking!
My Future Called Tomorrow 
Showed Up
AND
My Present Called Today 

Unfolded
AND
I Knew That My Life 
Was Well And Truly
If-ed Up!

IF I Continued With Satan ...!
IF I Started Back Seeking For God ...!
IF I Chose Not To Make A Decision ...!
If None Of This Hadn't Happened At All ...!
IF God Hadn't Created Lucifer 
Or
Even The Earth At All!

IF Only I Hadn't Engaged Satan!
IF Only I Had Not From God Strayed Away!
IF Only - The Saddest Words Imaginable
The Epitaph Of A Christian
Gone 
Walking Astray!

Okay. 
God,
You Are Creator!
You Used To Love Me!
IF I Pray
Will You Still Care?


Child,
There Is No "IF" In My Kingdom!
There Is Also No Halfway!
You Cannot
Be Blessing Me 
And
Blasting With Satan
And
Believe That I Will Permit
You To Kiss Me With That Mouth!

IF You Love Me - Love ME!
IF You Love Satan - Love HIM!
For I AM The All OR Nothing Soul-Lover
And
I Won't Share Your Affections With
The Lying Other!

I AM Calling To You! - COME HOME!
I AM Calling To You! - LEAVE SIN ALONE!
I AM Telling You Plain
Life With Me Is No Bed Of Baubles And Roses
BUT
I AM Always Here
Let Me Make That Really Clear
For What Is My Own
I Keep
And Will Celebrate
On That Day
When They - Having Endured To The End -
Shall Enter Into My Holy Home!

I Turned Away From Satan!
I Threw Away My Old Clothes!
I Severed All Ties With Companions Of Old
For
I Was Getting Off The Sin-Drug
Cold!

I Washed The Dust Of The Street Off My Feet!
I Had Communion That Day!
I Had Bread And Grape Juice
AND
Uttered A Truly Simple Pray:



Father,
Forgive Me!
I Know What I Did!
I Confess And Repent
Bless Me And Keep Me
Away From The Skids!
Raise Up In My Heart
A Spirit Of Revulsion
For Sin
And Keep Me Obedient
For I Desire
Your Home To Enter In!
I Love You!
Teach Me To Love You, Lord
AMEN.

I Am Now Satisfied ... WITH JESUS CHRIST!
