Psst! How Do You Stand?



With The Possession Of
Faith
Virtue
Knowledge
Temperance
Patience
Holiness
Brotherly Kindness
AND
Charity
By The Word Of The Lord
I Can Neither Barren Nor Unfruitful Be!

Out Of The Divine Mercy
I Can Approach The Father
Not Trembling
BUT
Free
Blessed
Beloved
Expectantly Knowing
That In The Great Day
I Shall Rise Glorified
Immortal!
Just As My Savior Is
I Shall Be!

Without The Great Gifts
I Would Be As Those Blind
Choosing Rejection
Preferring Not To Walk The Straight Line
Willfully Ignorant
Without Excuse
Before Him Who Gave Us The Way
To Walk Holy
So That For Own Known Sin
We Will Not By Self
Have To Eternally Pay!

We Need Denial Of Self
AND
Casting Away Of Lusts
AND
Trust To Living To Him
Who Is The Truth
AND
Not Be Existing As Dying Men
Created Of The Dust!

Our Calling Is Real
AND
Our Election Is Sure
IF
We Live Faithful
AND
By God's Grace
To The End
To Endure!

I Desire To Wear The Bright Crown!
I Have No Desire To Tremble In Abject Fear
Before The Eternal Judge's Frown
Whose Will Is
That None Should Die
BUT
That All Should Come To Repentance
AND
Rise To Live With Him
In Eternal Mansions
In His Eternal Home
On High!

The Offer To Us Is Sure!
The Provision For Us Is Secure!
The Way For Us Is Pure
BUT
We Must Ask Him
Who Provides For Us
To Enter In
To Walk Through Our Heart's Door!

His Knock Is Not Scary!
His Voice Is Not Loud!
His Offer Is Fully Disclosed
Free
Simple
Not Like That Which Comes From
The Passionate Fraud
Whose Ways Are Wily
Who Tempts
BUT
Who Cannot You Force
BUT
Who Has Weapons In His Arsenal
That Will
The Willing Willful
Destroy!

The Counterfeit
Is The Thing Amazing
If We Don't Know The True!
We Will Fall
Especially
If We're One With Those Willing
Ever Always To Party
To Caterwaul!

Our Savior Is Constant
Not Offering Quick Tricks!
He Is The Man Of Sorrows
Acquainted With Grief
Who Took To Himself
Our Licks
AND
Provides To Us
His Reliefs!

Jesus' Way Is No Quick Fix!
Jesus Rights!
He Does No Man Wrong!
He Wishes For Us 
To Join The Family
To Be Able To Eternally Praise
AND
Really Celebrate
Starting The Moment
The Trumpet Of God
Sounds
AND
The High Heavens Blaze!

The Options?

Living Circumspectly
Sighing AND Crying Out Over The Abominations
In The World AND In The Church
AND
Finally Dying In Jesus Now
AND
To Heaven Flying With Jesus
AND
The Redeemed Of All Ages Later!

OR

Lustily Lustfully
Unremittingly Unrepentantly Living It Up
In Your Best Life Now
With Satan And Co.
AND
Eternally Dying With Satan
AND
All Unrepentant Sinners Of All Ages Later!


The Big Question ...

When The Judge Of All Flesh
The Prince Of Peace
Shall At The Last Day
Finally Appear
Will You Have Permitted
The Music On The Wings Of The Wind
That The Kings Of The World
Had Ordered
Boisterously Played In Your Ear
To Cause Your Decision Made 
To Be Your Decision Fatal?

Oh, That Men Would Praise The Lord!
