HAPPY SABBATH + In The Day Of Calamity + A New Prayer Song: Lord, Hold My Hand!









In The Day Of Their Calamity
There Will Be Those
Calling On The Name Of The Lord
Who Had Denied The Name Of Jesus
AND
Lifted Up The Cruel Fraud!

These Will Have Walked In Their Own Way
Careless
Of The Strides That They Made
Unheeding
Of The Call Of Salvation
Choosing
The Free-Wheeling Ways
Of The Unapologetic Sin-Slave!

They Will Have Walked Boldly
As Men Born
BUT
They Bleated Like Goats
AND
Butted
Liked They Had Ram's Horns
Uncaring
Of Where When
How
Whose Heart
The "Butt" Shook!
They Decried The Words Of God's Truth
AND
To The Call Of The Holy Spirit
They Stood
Aloof
Ruffling Their Brows
Rolling Their Eyes
AND
Sucking Good And Hard
On A Gnarly Back Tooth!

God?!
What God?!
Jesus?!
He Works Down On The Way Broad!
Holy Spirit?!
Jack Daniels Holding Me Now!
Belief Is A Crock!
My Sister's Name Is Grace!
And
My Aunty Is Called Faith!
I've Got All I Need
So Get The Heck Out Of My Face!

But, Then ...


Ruction Broke Out!

Calamity Fell!
AND
Disaster Rolled Over!
AND
Calls For Salvation
Long And Loudly
Were Shouted Out
AND
The Name
That Worthy Name
Was Now Been Caressed
By Fallen Vanity's Swollen Mouth:


Oh, Lord

I Denied You!
I Had Not Time
Nor Uses For You!
Help Me!
I Am Begging!
Lord, Save Me Please!
I Don't Know Who Else To Call!
Nobody Is Answering My Call
And I Am Turning To You
Lord Jesus Father God
Help Me!
That Satan I Can Now See
Is A Hustler
A Liar
A Cheat
A Good Time Charlie
And An All-Fired Fraud!
Rewards?! What Rewards?!
Fair Promises
Lies
Half-Truths
Bewitching Statements
I Fell For Them All!
I Fell All The Way!
Father God,
Forgive Me
I Repent
I Confess All My Sins -
They Could Fill A Pup Tent
But I Am Crying
Calling
Pleading
Kneeling
I Repent! I Repent!

And ...

The Eternal God
Who Had Been Oft' Spurned
Held No Grudges!
He Did Not Return
Spurn For Spurn
BUT
Lifted Up The Fallen
Forgiving Confessed Repented Of Sin
Providing
Comfort AND Aid!

The Comforter
Comforted The Soul With Sin-Stained!
Jesus Christ Lifted Up The Fallen!
How Heaven Celebrated
Rejoicing Over The Lost Sheep
Now Reclaimed
While Satan
... Satan Cursed
AND
Cursed
Heaven AND Earth
AND
Went Out Roaring
Seeking
For A Soul
Whose Lightly-Held Blessing
He Could
- By Deceit -
Reverse!

Confession AND Repentance
Cleanses From Sin
BUT
Does Not Remove The Punishment
The Sorrow
The Hurt
The Pain
A Wanderer Will Experience
After Transgressing
AND
Walking In His Own Way
Off Course!

Don't Be Deceived!
Satan Can't Force You To Sin!
AND
Neither Jesus Christ
The Holy Spirit
Nor
The Holy Angels
Can Force You
The Holy Way To Walk In!

REMEMBER THIS ...

Choice ... Thy Name Is Man!
Man ... Will Is Your Way
Whether Reading The Holy Bible
Or Reading Your Palm
BUT KNOW THIS
When You Shop
Merchandise Purchased Has A Cost
AND
The Proffered Bill
- Cash, Lay-Away Or Charge -
You Are Obligated
To Pay
For That Is Only True Way!


A NEW SONG:

Lord,
I Am Trusting In Your Promises
Ratified
In Jesus Christ's Blood!
Lord,
I Am Standing On Your Promises
Made
With Eternal Love!
Lord,
I Am Looking To Your Kingdom
Where There Is No Decay!
Lord,
Help Me
To Honor You
So That I May Make
My Forever Home
There!

CHORUS:
Lord,
I Believe!
Help Thou My Unbelief!
Lord,
I Receive You!
Help So That Satan Can't Me Deceive!
Lord,
Lift Me Up!
I Desire On YOU To Firmly Stand!
Lord,
I Am Reaching For You!
Hold My Hand!
Please, Hold My Hand!
