Are You A Word Watcher?!

Please, Ma'am
What Do You Mean
When You Say
"Watch Your Words!?"
Words Don't Have A Body!

Ah, But They Do!
Some Are Heavy Weight Champions
Some Are Butterflies
Some Are Nasty Nellie's
AND
Some Are Annoying Flies!

Some Words Push You
Some Words Pull
Some Words Run You Down
AND
Some Words Make You Feel Like A Gull!

I Like Gulls!

Oh, No! Not Gull As In Bird!
Gull As In To Make One Feel Like An Idiot!

That's Not Very Nice!

Do You Still Think
Words Have No Body
Aka No Weight?!

Well  ... I Am Not Too Sure. ...Yet.

Come, Let's Walk For A Moment!
Ryan, You Are A Kindhearted Soul!
Why Is That?!

Well, It's Nice To Be Kind
And Mom And Dad Both Teach
That What You Give You Get Back
And That Soft Answers Turn Away Wrath
And
Do Unto Others What You Want To Be Done Unto You!

Wouldn't You Call That
Ingesting Good Food?

Sure, I Would!

And When You Say Something Nice
Wouldn't You Agree That You Are Displaying
The Fruit
The Benefits
From The Good Food
That You Ingested ... Ate
AND
Digested  ...  Learned Grew From
AND
Expressed ... Practiced?!

Yes, I Would!
I Think I Understand!

If You Understand, Prove It!

I Heard Coach Keene Call Mason
A Rather Nasty Name
AND
I Actually Saw Mason Recoil
As Though He Had Suffered A Physical Blow
AND
Afterward He Looked Physically Ill!

There You Go!
So What Do You Now Say?!

Sticks And Stones May Break My Bones
BUT
Unkind Words Are Sure To Harm Me!

Well Said!
Now I Desire That You Remember This:

People Watch Our Words!
Our Expressed Words Come From Within Us
Showing Others What Is Inside Of Us
AND
Very Often
A Lifetime's Worth Of Living
Can Never Erase
The Looped Unkind-Word Recording
That In Another Person's Head Plays
AND
There Is No Pencil
Well-Enough Equipped
To Erase The Lasting 
UGLY
AND
WEIGHTY
Bad Impression
That We May Have Unwittingly Made!

Watch YOUR Words!

Yes, Ma'am!
I Surely Will!
Thanks For For Taking The Time
To Explain Things To Me!
I Appreciate You!

Thank You, Kindly!
I, Also, Appreciate You!

Even At Your Worse
Jesus Christ
Gently Calls Out To You
So Please Emulate Him
AND
Do Likewise
In Interacting
With The Brethren!

PRAYER: Lord, Help Thou My Unbelief!

Master!
Lord!
My Teacher!
My Friend!
Jesus Christ
The God Of All
Loves Me
And That ... Without End!

I Know Not Where My Feet May Travel
I Know Not Which Row
In The Garden Of Life I Must Hoe
BUT I Know The One
Whose Undying Love For Me
Has Deliberately Made
Personal Provision
Just For Me!

He Who Has Promised
Has Made The Word Plain:

Eye Has Nor Seen
Nor Has A Man's Ear Heard
The Plans
The Provisions
That I Have Made For Thee!

*********



PRAYER:

Lord, 
I Believe You! - Help Thou
My Unbelief!


Lord,
I Receive You! - Help Me Not To Grieve You!


Lord,
I Am Blind!
If Thou Wilt
Thou Canst Make Me See!


Lord, I
My Sin Against You
- In Contrition -
I Do Confess
And
I Plead
- In Jesus' Name -
Most Gracious God
Please Save Me
To Enter Into Your Bliss!
AMEN.

Christians Shall See POLS!?!

You Who Faithfully Carry The Gospel Of Christ
Will Be Afflicted By POLS!

Pols?! What Is Pols?!
And Whatever It Is
Is There A Vaccine Against It!?

Isn't Pols Short For Politicians?!

Yes .. But Not In This Case!

POLS Is:

  • Peril
  • Opposition
  • Loss
  • Suffering

Jesus Christ Died!
The Disciples All Experienced It
AND
Whoever Takes Up The Cause Of Christ
To Carry Forth The Gospel
Shall
- By The Hand Of Satanic Device -
Feel The Sting Of Punishing Peril
Rabid Opposition
Searing Loss
AND
Harsh Suffering!
Please Know Of A Surety
That It Is Not The Thing Nice!


The Lord Helps Those
Who Help Themselves
To A Drink Of His Mercy
Sprinkled With Grace
Lifted
By The Hand Of Faith
Yielded
To Be Molded By
The Only One

Who Is Outside
Of
Time And Space!

Walk By Faith!
Never Walk By Sight!
Trust The Word Of The Lord

For
It Will Your Heart
AND
Your Life
Exceedingly Delight!

Earthly Pleasure Is Passing!
God's Paradise Is The Place True
AND
Victory Over Sin
Is The Only Pass
That Will See You
The Pearl Gates
Getting Through!

Getting Through 
Peril
Opposition
Loss
Suffering
For The Name
AND
The Word Of The Lord
With Enduring Faith
AND
Unyielding Obedience 

AND
Absolute Trust
Gives Paradise
To The Remnant

That Faithful Few!
I Am Striving For The Win!
Are You?!

Won't You?!


Seek
Eternal Life
Over 
Temporal Property!

PRESUMPTION : FAITH!

Faith And Presumption
Are Adversaries
AND
That Is Gospel Truth!
Faith Claims God's Promises
AND
Bears Obedience
That Good
Very God Fruit!

Presumption
- By Contrast -
That Bold Fellow He
Lays Claim To God's Promises
Without Fidelity
AND
All That He Brings
Is Windblown Fruit
For
He Uses The Promises
To Excuse Transgression
AND
He Is Bold, Bold
AND
Rotten To The Root
To Boot!

Faith Is Not Presumptuous
AND
Presumption
Cannot Ever Of Faith Assay
AND
All The Brethren
Need To Know
How To Recognize That Difference
Or
For Own Sin
They Will Surely Have To Pay!

Faith Is An Open Door!
Presumption Is A Hardened Cell
Locked
AND
Neither Can Suffice For The Other
AND
Of This Fact
All Mankind
Should Surely, Surely, Take Stock!

Faith Walks Not By Sight
BUT
Presumption Lives In Flood Light
Ever Assured
By What It Can Machinate To See
AND
Always Rolling Black Dice
Ever Hopeful
Of A Free Golf Tee Fee!

In Faith Resides Trust!
In Presumption Lies Lust
Of The Eye
Of The Flesh
In The Pride Of Life
AND
All Who With Presumption Consort
Will Never
Ever
With The King Of Life
Have An Eternal Part!

Presumption Is ... Sin!
And
The Wages Of Sin Is ... Death!
And
Dead Men Can't Talk
So
... Obviously ...
Dead-Man Talk
Won't Cause God's Punishment
From You To Walk
UNLESS
The Talker
Has Taken
Is Taking
The Talking With Jesus Christ
Believing Him
And
Trusting Him For Eternal Life
Walk!

Where You At?!

VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: SIN + PRAYER: Father, I Am A Sinner!




Sin Is A Feisty Liar!
It Indulges In Grand Deceit!
It Walks As One Friendly
BUT
Is A Veritable Sneak!

Sin Likes The Game 
"What If ... ?!"
It Likes
"Here - Let's Pretend ...!"
It Likes To Indulge Bait And Switch
AND
A Fly
It Will Not Offend!

Sin Likes To Play
Dress UP!!
AND
DRESS DOWN!!
Sin Likes To Makes A Good Show
AND
Whatever It Takes 
To Break You
Sin Is Always Set To Let Go!

Be It
Black And White
Technicolor
Cartoon
Video Short
Full Feature Film
Sin Has A Place For Everybody!
Did I Tell You
That Plain Sin Operates
The Local Welcome In Inn?!

Sin Is The Local Doctor!
Sin Is The Local Priest!
Sin Is A Chameleon
That Offers All And Everybody
Free 
AND
Focused 
Stress-Busting Free Relief!

Sin Paints Itself As A Paragon Of Virtue
Giving To Each Man According To Felt Need
BUT
Indulging In Sin Is
Like Crack Cocaine
Mixed With Grand Prix Speed!

Sin Invites One
For A Little Test Run
Just A Trial
One And Done
BUT
What The One-Time Sinner Does Not Know
Is That Sin Is A Freeloading Pimp
That
- Left Unchecked -
Turns One-Timers
Into Full-time Free-Basting Whores!

Now ...

You May Not Like
That Last Analogy
BUT
I Encourage You
To Look Back At Your Own Life
AND
Magnifying-Glass-Truthful Be!
I Did
AND
Believe Me
It Wasn't Anything Called Pretty!

No One Commits One Sin!
No One Keeps Sinning Small-Time
For
Unchecked By The Soul's Savior
Sin Is An Accelerator
On A Banana Peel
On An Oiled 
AND
Mirror-Polished
Zip Line!

Let No One Fool You!
Man Cannot Control The Will To Sin
For One Taste Of Sin
Releases
The Bull In The China Shop 
Within!

BUT ...

There Is Hope!
Man Has The Creator
The Redeemer
The Savior
The Soul-Lover
The Friend
The Substitute
That Waged War
AND
Won That Fight
By A Plain
"It Is Written ...!"
Aka
"Thus Says The Living God ...!"

The True Friend
Exposes
The Real Enemy!
The True Friend
Conquered
Sin
AND
Death And Hell
Its Progeny
AND
The True Friend
Made A Straight Path
- Narrow -
For Those Who Would From Sin
Sinning
AND
Hell-Bent Hell-bound Sinners
Walk Away
AND
All It Takes
Is A Little Faith In The Provision
AND
A Heartfelt Prayer:

Father In Heaven
From Sin
Take Me Away!
I Am A Sinner
But
I Don't Want To Walk In That Way!

I Believe Your Word Of Promise!
I Believe That You Are True!
Save Me!
I Am Dying In Sin
But
I Want To Walk With You!

Grant Me The Promised Victory
Over Dread Sin
In This Very Moment
Right Now
Today!
Grant Me The Power
In Jesus' Name
To Walk In Faith
No Matter The Matter
The Day
Nor The Hour!
AMEN.


Brethren,
A Dressed-Up Sin Is Still Sinful
Still Ugly!
A Dressed-Up Sinner No Less!
Unconfessed Sin
By The Unrepentant Sinner
IS
The Unforgiven Sin
Of
The Unforgiven Sinner
Which Equates To
The Unblessable Mess!

Call Sin What It Is -
Transgression Of The Law
Of The Holy God
AND
Give It Its Just Reward
By Turning It
AND
Its Purveyor
Over To
The True Living
Able Available
Holy Righteous One Eternal God
Who Has The
"It Is Finished!"
For The Wily Satan
That Unregenerate Fraud!

Sin Is No Joke
So Stop Clowning Around With It!
Jesus Christ Saves One From Sin
Never In Sin
So
Let It Go!

Say To Sin
"No!"
AND
Let Christ 
In You
By You
AND
For You
Really, REALLY, Show
AND
Let Us Bask
- DAILY -
In Heavenly Love's 
Imperishable Glow!






Tested Sin?! Taste Salvation!

I Know What Sin Looks Like
AND
More Particularly
I Know Its Taste
AND
I Know
Through The Grace Of Christ's Faith
That It Is A Death That
- Summarily -
Will Be Replaced!

Let Me Tell You ...

For Me
It All Started
With A Lil' Some'ing Some'ing
Followed By A Tall Glass Of Gimme More
Topped Off With A Gateau
From Randy Andy
AND
Culminated With
Got To Spread The Spores!

Sin Is A Pool Side
Bed Side
Table Side
Service
Designed To Meet Eaters
In
AND
At
Every Desire
AND
That Desire
Never Ever Leans Toward
Get Less
For
It Is Stuck On The Gear ... Get More!

I Would Be Tired Always Wanting More!

You Speak Truth
BUT
Sin Is A Saddled War Horse
Opinionated
Cultured
Wild
Greedy
Beautiful And Deadly
BUT 
It Ever Acts Nice
Before It Does The Nasty
AND
Turns You
On To
AND
Into
Spiced Vice Full Of Lice!

You Are Making Me Itch!
Stop Talking About That!

I Can't!
I Must Speak The Truth
For Sin Would Have Completely
Wrecked Me
Were It Not For Dear Grace
Who Came 
AND
Stopped
Checked Me!

Mercy!

Mercy Was There
AND
So Was Love
Who Called Me
Calmed Me
AND
More Particularly
Caringly
Held Me ...!

Oh, What Love!

He Spoke!
I Listened!
I Blubbered!
We Cried
AND
He Left Me Holy Spirit Comforter
After Saying That
For Me
He Was Tried
He Had Bled
AND
Cruelly Died!

I Was Hurt
AND
I Was Sorry
For My Sin
AND
For Hurting Him!

I Was Hurt
Yet
I Was Made Happy
For His Hurt
Allows Me Repentance
So That
By Faithful Surrender
To Him
I May Into Holy Heaven
Through The Pearl Gates
- Right Gained -
Walk In!

Sin Calls One To Always Live In The Now
In All Ways
BUT
It Doesn't Last Forever
For
It Has No Root
In The Rock
- The Rock Of Salvation -
That Lasts Forever
AND
Ever!

I Had To Choose!
Salvation
OR
Sin!
Sinful Pleasure Now!
Damnation Later!
OR
Saintly Self-Denial Now!
AND
Everlasting Joy
With Christ The Lord
Later!

Which Did You Choose?!

I Chose To Believe
- Big Word Coming Up -
The Preponderance Of The Evidence
AND
When Sin And Salvation
Were In The Balances Laid
I Saw With My Own Gritty Eyes
Felt With My Own Creeped-Out Skin
Knew In My Own Scarred Hurting Heart
That I Had Been
By Satan And Raw Sin
Sucker-Punched
AND
Roundly Played!

I Had Nearly Died
BUT
On That Very Day
I
- Spiritually Edified -
Got Out Of The Bed With Sin
AND
Leaving Everything
- Better Called Nothing Worthwhile - Behind
I Had Answered The Knock At The Door
Of My Heart
AND
Eagerly Invited In The Beautiful Caller
AND
The Pest
- The Now-Unwanted Sin -
Had No Choice
BUT
From Me To Depart
 For He, Sodden
No Longer Thrilled My Heart!

I Prayed ...

Oh, Father
I Heard Your Voice
And
Moved By Your Spirit 
And
Finally Convinced 
Ready To Change
Truly Convicted
And
Actually Acknowledging My Need
And
Pain
Honestly See Myself

And
- Desiring Free Salvation
Which Can Only Come
From You, God Divine
The Only One True Faithful Kind - 
Invite You In!


Please Hold Me! 
Keep Me
Forever
Please Stay!

Please Make Me Clean!
 
I Don't Want 
My Homemade Bread Anymore!
Please Feed Me Yours
From Heaven's Stores!


Before You, Lord 
I Am Shamefaced Naked! 
Clothe Me In Your Righteousness 
For I Am Now Yours!


I Was Blind
But Your Eyesalve Gives Me Healing

So That I Can Clearly See Thee!
Bless You, Lord!


My Old Name Is Dirt O. Damnation
And
In Revulsion 
I Wittingly Willingly Lay It Down! 
Give Me Your Name, Lord! 
Your Love Lifts Me
And
I Desire To Wear Your Ownership! 
I Desire To Wear The Family Crown!



He Heard ... Me!
He Answered ... Me!
AND
In That Instant
New Life Began For ... Me!

That Is, Indeed
Amazing Grace!

HAPPY SABBATH + BATTLES! + PRAYER: Lord, Please Grant Us Peace!






Strong Man Was Proof Against Witchcraft!
Strong Man Was Valiant In War
BUT
Strong Man Was Humbled By
That Harlot
Who Used Her Wiles
As Specified By Dark Lorde!

First Thing ...

I Should Tell You
That
Dark Lorde Is Older Than The Hills
AND
Dark Lorde Hates Creator God
AND
Dark Lorde Had Set Up Himself
As Adversary
Accuser
Beguiler
Enticer
Tempter
Aider And Abettor
AND
Tormentor Especial
Against N. E. Body
Who Dares Side With Creator God
AND
Thereby
Eschews Walks ... On The Dark Lorde Side!

I Should Also Tell You That ...

Creator God
Is Also
Maintainer
Sustainter
Provider
Abider
Savior
Redeemer
AND
Friend
To N. E. Body
AND
Who Soever Will
That Confesses The Name
Confesses Their Sin
Repents Of The Sin Committed
AND
- Holding The Gift aka Faith -
Chooses To Walk With And To Him
For Love
AND
In
Obedience!

They Are Called ... Collectively
The Faithful Few
AND
They've All Got Eternal-Life Tickets
For
Faithfulness Unto Life's Journey's End!

The Perks Are Off The Chain Glorious
- That Is The Promised Truth -
For
It Has Not Entered Into The Heart
Of N. E. Body
Nor
Into The Ear Of Who Soever Will
What Creator God Has Prepared
For Those Who Love Him
AND
In That Love
Overcome Dark Lorde!

Bub?!

Yes, Friend?!

Don't Forget To Tell Every Body
AND
N. E. Body
That Dark Lorde Tempted
Tormented
AND
Succeeded
In Having The King's Only Son Killed
AND
Buried
BUT
That He Got Up
AND
Rose Up
AND
Returned To His Father's House
AND
By So Doing
Has Conquered Dark Lorde
- He Bruised Up That Wicked Head -
AND
Swallowed Up
Sin
Death
AND
Old Hell
In A Once And For All
VICTORY!

Friend?!

Yes, Bud?!

I Ain't Got To Remember To Tell The People The Story!

Why Not?!

You Just Told It To Them
AND
It Was A Good Job Indeed!

Oh, My!
I Guess I Did!

Now ... Back To The Big Picture ...

Dark Lorde
Trained
That Harlot
AND
Her Lot
To Use
Uh, Ahhhm, Uhm
Their Ample Charms
Their Pretty Faces
Their Luscious Scents
Their Mincing Steps
Their Gyrating Hipses ...!

Ahem, Ahem!
You Messed Up A Wee Spot, Bud!

Really?!
Let's See ...
I Mentioned Scents Steps
Faces Charms Hipses ...!
Oh, My!
I Must Have Been Fo ...!
Forgive Me!

Forgiven!

Well ...

That Harlot
AND
Her Lot
In Fit 
Painted Scented
AND Gyrating Fettle
- With Extreme Malice -
After Much Devil-Inspired Thought
Have Humble Many Called
Strong Man
By Making Them Elevate
Who Is Not Big Head!

Battles Have Been Lost!
Wars Have Been Lost!
Homes Have Been Wrecked!
Kingdoms Have Been Lost
AND
Irreplaceable Souls Of
Rich Poor
Free Bond
King And Prince
Have Been Lost
By Dining At Tables
Neither Round Square Nor Oblong
That Cannot Hold Anything
Called A Dinner Plate!

THAT... Is Sad!

And Then Some!

Such A Terrible Fate!
Do You Know
That Down At HIS Temple
- Only Last Week -
For The Self-Same Sin
Fada Seckse Was Unfrocked?!

I Heard
BUT
What Is Most Troubling
Is That That Harlot
AND
Her Lot
Are Moving Around
Like A Grazing Cattle Herd!

Lord, Protect And Save Your Children!

Question For You :
Who Where When Why ...
Of What Does This Remind You?!

Israelites!
Border Of The Promised Land!
Greedy Treacherous Balaam Advising
Evil King Balak To Use Midianite Harlots
To Indulge In Idolatry
AND
Sexual Perversion
To Entice Said Israelites
To Forsake
The True Living
All-Seeing All-Knowing Ever Present Creator God
AND
To Incur His Jealous Wrath!

It Worked Better Than
Any Curse
Any Withcraft
Any Battle
AND
24,000 Men Lost Their Lives!

How Sad ...!
And It Is Still Happening!

I Guess
Or Rather
I Know That Dark Lorde
Has Perfected His Skills
AND
As We Get Closer
To The Great Day
The Day Of The Only Son
Dark Lorde
Is Going To Be Ratcheting Up His Efforts
AND
That Harlot
AND
Her Lot
Will Not Be Any Prisoners Taking!

I Know What You Mean!
We Need Help! Badly!

Well ...

That's What Dee Word
AND
Let's Pray Are For
So Let Us Indulge Ourselves!

Your Choice:
Inside Outside Or Car?!

Anywhere Where No One
Can Our Needful Peace Mar!

I Hear You!

PRAYER:

Lord, God Almighty
Faithful And True
We Are
Your Faithful,Trusting, Children
And
We Sincerely Need You!

Grant Us Your Grace
We Who Are Inside The Safe Fence!
Protect Us
And
Keep Us In Your Care
So That
- To You -
We Will Not Cause Spiritual Offence!

Pity, Lord
The Brethren
Caught Us In Temporal Intrigue
And
Grant Them The Spirit
To Respond To Your Holy Spirit
So That
For Them
This Life Is Not
The End!

Pity Us Who Care!
Pity Us Who Pray!
Pity Us In Your Mercy
For, Lord
We Hold You In Godly Fear!

Grant Us Peace
And
Sweet Rest
And
Faith For The Day
So That We Shall Stand!
This, Lord
Is Our Humble
Our Fervent Prayer
And
We Pray All
In The Name Of The Beloved
Your Precious Son
The Holy Son Of Man!

We Love You, Lord!
AMEN.
