Strange Work For God!




How Much Faith 
Is In Our Faithfulness?
How Much Faithfulness 
Is In Our Faith?

How Much Love 
Is In Our Happiness?
How Much Happiness 
Is In Our Love?

How Much Hope 
Is In Our Helplessness?
How Much Helplessness 
Is In Our Hope?

How Much Greed 
Is In Our Needfulness?
How Much Needfulness 
Is In Our Greed?
How Much Needfulness
Do We Feed Our Sinfulness
Before Faithlessness Leads To Christlessness
With Lying Satan
Riding Us Like Prize-winning Steeds?

"Come Unto Me
All Ye That Labor
AND
Are Heavy-Laden
AND
I Will Give You Rest!"
Is Not An Invitation Carelessly Tossed Out!
It Is An Invitation
To Live In AND For The Lord
AND
At His Returning
Shall He Find Faith
There Will Be The Heavenly Reward
Gloriously Given Out!

It Is Bandied About
By The Faithless Crew
That In Self Is Satisfaction
AND
A Bauble Or Two
BUT
In The Invitation To Rest
Is A Rejection Of The Fun Run
AND
A Willingness To Grinding Servitude
Where
Individuality Is Considered A Bad Attitude!

It Is Also Stated
By Those Who Are To Self
Slaves
That They Want No Part Of The God
Who Sodom And Gomorrah Did Raze
For
In Their Indictment
Of The Creator Of Us All
They Say
That God Made A Defective Creature
AND
As Such
He Is Responsible For Man's Fall!

These Also Rashly Point 
To The End Of All Things
AND
Accuse The Living God
Of Evil Speaking
Bullying
Grandstanding
AND
Threatening 
All Contrary-To-His-Will Men
With Annihilation In Eternal Hell Fire
If They Don't Bow To His Sovereign Will
AND
From Sinning Retire!

These Willful Wanderers
Call The Holy God Mean
AND
Take Pleasure In Unrighteousness
Just To See If
What God Says
Is What God Means!
The Attitude Is Such That Says
That If God Were Really Real
Destruction Would Be Instant
AND
Not To Be Meted Out 
Eternally
In Some Distant Day
AND
For This Very Reason
They Will Do What They Like
AND
Indulge In Abominable Displays
For
Life Is For Good Living
For We Are On The Earth For A Few Short Days
AND
In All This
We Can See Satan's Dirty Hands
AND
His Interpretation Of 
The Holy God's Attributes
AND
Ways!

Eternal Hell Fire Simply Means
No One Will Extinguish It!
It Doesn't Mean
Everlasting Burning
In Inextinguishable Flames!
That, Too
Is One Of Satan's Best Lying Efforts
To Show Man That
Almighty God
Is Like Him
A Sadistic Barbaric Yahoo!

Our Almighty God
Is Loving
Kind
Merciful
Even As He Is 
A God Of Justice, Too!
God Gives Each Man
Will
Way
AND
Opportunity
To Go To The Lord
AND
Say:

Father, I Am From This Day Willingly Following You!


When We Do What We Want
Against Law
Common Sense
Instruction
Direction
AND
Correction
We Pay The Price
BUT
When We Do What The Lord Desires
Letting The Holy Spirit
Be Our Guide
We To Heaven Aspire
AND
We Avoid God's Prepared-For-Unrepentant-Sinners
Hell Fire!

God Offers A Blessing!
God Offers A Curse!
Blessing Or Cursing
It Is Up To Man
To Choose A Verse
In The Hymn
That Is Sung
In The Life Of All Men
AND
It Is Up To Each One
Who Will
Over Him
Say The "Amen!"

God's Blessing ... Blesses!
God's Cursing ... Curses!
AND
None But The Living God
Can A Curse Reverse!

We Are Called To Faithfulness
Truthfulness
Honesty
Obedience
AND
Love
AND
We Are Called To Worship
Honor
AND
Praise
The God Of Heaven
Through Whom We Have Length Of Days
AND
Abiding Heavenly Love That Faith Pays!

We Were Made
For Jesus Christ's Pleasure
AND
In Him We Have Life
AND
We Are Not To Give Unto Satan
Our Blood-Bought Selves
To Be His Stolen Treasure
AND
It Is Time
That We Take His Measure
AND
Mark Him Off
Our Lives Accounted-For-Good
Accounting Ledger!

God Cannot
Will Not
Save Man
In His Known
Relished
Unconfessed
Unrepented Of Sin
AND
Those Who Refuse To Go Humbly To God
Will See God Himself
At The Second Resurrection
- That Of The Filthy
AND
The Unrighteous -
Do A Strange Work
To Clean The Earth
Even Though
It Is Not His Desire
That Anyone
Should Perish!

Think ... Before You Act!
Get The Facts
AND
Walk Right And Holy
AND
Do Not Like Lot's Wife
At Sinning Look Back!
