SERVING THE SAVIOR : Carrying Corrupted Coals!?




Neither Selfishness
Nor Coldness
Nor Hardheartedness
Are Fit Traits
Fit Clothing
To Be Found
In And Upon A Professed Disciple
A Regenerated Follower Of Jesus Christ
AND
Any Christian Who Cherishes Them
Or Wears Them
Even Glorying In Them
I Dare Say
Should Hang Down Their Head
AND
Cry Out:

Oh, Lord!
I Am Unclean!
Oh, Lord!
I Am So Ashamed!

Remember, Please
Nadab And Abihu
High Priest Aaron's Sons
- Priests Themselves -
Who Knew
How The Temple Service Was Run!
They Knew How
Specifically Particular
Almighty God's Rules Were
For Placing Fire Before The Holy Lord
AND
Yet
AND
Still 
They, Being Self-Willed
AND
Self-Determining
Placed Swill Aka Strange Fire
Before The Holy God
AND
Instantly Perished!
Devoured!
"Fire-bombed!"
Dead!
Killed!

So ...?!

That Was Then
But, Now
In This Day
The Fire We Place On The Altar
Before The Holy God
Is Our Character
Such As Is Blessed
By King Jesus
AND
Cursed By King Fraud!

Therefore ...

Triumphantly
Cast Your Crud Before The Cursed One
AND
Humbly
Place Your Precious Pearls
Before The Prince Of Peace
AND
Let Christ's Holy Character
Be Replicated In Thee
So That You Will Find
Acceptance
AND
Receive Favor
From The Eternal God
The Only One Holy!

Children Of The King Of Glory
Princes Princesses
One And All
Are Groomed To Holy Kingly Character
By
The Holy Spirit Of God!

The Holy Spirit Guides
Chides
Teaches
AND
Us Feeds
AND
If We Accept The Training
We Shall At The End
Receive OUR Gold Crowns
New Names
Victor's Palms
Harps Of Gold
Robes Of Christ's Righteousness
AND
Wings
Upon Which We Shall Truly Soar
For God's Eternity!

Selfishness
Coldness
AND
Hardheartedness
Are As Wet Coals
Fit Only To Be Cast Away
AND
Trodden Underfoot
For
They Will Contaminate The Good
Which Burn Bright And Bold
Before God
Forever
AND
All Day!

Almighty God
Is A Consuming Fire
AND
All Who Will Be Saved
Must Be Clean
So
If Your Intent
Is To Live With The King
Ask The Holy Spirit
To Remake You
So That
Through The Pearly Gates
You Will Have Unchallenged Right
To Walk In!

Be Ye Holy!
Be Ye Clean!
AND
Be Ye Faithful
For
God Accepts The Righteous
Not The Profane
Those Unclean!

What's In Your Censer?
From Where Do You Purchase
Acquire
Your Coals?
Were They Purchased From
Satan
Or
The Savior?
Will They Get You Killed
Or
Will They Save You Whole?

Because We Appear To "Work!"
For Christ Jesus
Let Us Not Assume That We Are Home Free
Just Because
We Appear To Men As Those Righteous
To God
We May Possess The The Stink Of The Unholy
AND
Have The Character Of The Obscene!

Brethren,
When You Know Right
Do Right
For
You Can't Unknow What You Know Is Right!
- Nor Wrong Either! -

Jesus Said:

"Be Ye Holy!"

In Essence, That Means
Be Ye Clean!

So ...

Take Your Bath!
Clean Your Body!
AND
Cleanse Your Mind
Under The Agency Of The Holy Spirit
AND
Don't Put Back On
The Same Old Dirty Clothes
For
With Them On
You Can't Enter Where
The Good Shepherd's Sheep Go
Gently Grazing
Gladly Praising
Having Gained
The Glorious Goal!

In The Faith
Of
Jesus Christ The Righteous
Drop
The Devil's Deadly Dross
- Those Soot-Producing
Soul-Benighting Coals -
And
Gain
God's Good Non-Corroding Gold!
