VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: JESUS CHRIST: The Electrician




I Was Walking In Darkness!
My House Was Shuttered! - No Light!
My Windows Were Darkened!
I Couldn't See The Way!
And I Needed An Electrician
One Who Would Accept No Pay!

My Eyes Were My Windows!
My House Was My Soul!
Spiritual Was My Darkness
And I Needed The Light Of Life
To Enter Into My Soul!

I Opened The Book Of Helps
And
I Found And Dialled The Registered Number -
PRAYER
And
Before The Number Could Ring
I Heard A Voice Answer:

Holy Spirit Line
Jesus Christ Speaking!

Jesus?

I AM!

Would You Help Me, Please?!
I Need Light!
I Am Walking In Darkness!
Satan Is Running After Me
About Ready To Completely Catch Me!
He Keeps Asking:

Hath God Said?!

And, I ...
I Am Tongue-Tied!
I Have Been Tardy Studying The Scriptures
So I Can't Distinguish God's Truth
From His Devilish Lies!

Child,
Why Are You Tardy?

Lord,
I Must Tell You The Truth!
I Am Busy
Doing Busy Work
Running Around Doing A Lot Of
Church Committee Work!
I Am On A Committee
To Set Up A Committee
And A Committee To Regulate Committees
And The Large Committee To Select The Small Committee
And Then
I Have Housework
School Work
Work Work
And Other Church Work
And Then
I Am So Tired
I Can Barely See My Bible To Read
And I Have Even Been Neglecting Prayers
Too Tired To Even Get Down On My Knees
And
If I Do Get On My Knees
I Fall Asleep Saying My Prayers
My Mind Is Wandering On A Tangent
And
I Don't Even Remember Changing Gears!
I Am Troubled In My Spirit!
My Soul, Lord, Is Distressed!
I Need You To Fix Me
For
I Am Suffering From Intemperance
By Church Work And Work Work Excess!

Child,
What Is My Charge To You?

Seek Ye First
The Kingdom Of God ...!

And, Then?

Go Ye Into All The World ...!

Beloved,
Do You Love Me?

Lord, You Know Everything!
You Know That I Do Love You!
I Keep All The Commandments
And
I Do Good
And
I Walk Right
But ...!

Your Spiritual Life Is Bankrupt
And
Satan Is Winning In The Fight!

Yes, Lord!
That Is It!
Please, Tell Me What To Do
For
I Am Willing To Listen
And
Do
What You Ask Me Too!

When You Are Spiritually Tired
Are You Sober?
Are You Vigilant?
Can You Fight Your Adversary
Who Has No Need
For Human Rest And Lunch?

You Must Make The Reading Of Scriptures
A Part Of Your Necessary Bread
And
You Must Make Your Prayers As The Water You Drink
Without Which
You Would Soon Be Dead!

Knowing That I Am Just A Prayer Away
And
Never Calling My Name
Is Just The Same As Calling Me
By Dialling A Wrong Number In Vain!

It Is Not That
Every Time
You Want To Talk With Me
That You Can On Your Knees Pray
Commune With Me
In The Silence Of Your Mind
And Know
That I
Who Created You
Is The Only One Who Can Read Your Mind!

Share Your Sorrows
Your Joys
Your Tears
Your Fears
Your Concerns
Your Desires
Your Trials
Your Burdens
Share Your Life With Me!
I Care!
No Burden Is Too Heavy
No Need Is Too Small
No Sin Is Beyond Forgiveness
For I Forgive Who In Contriteness Of Heart
Repentant
On Me Humbly
Prayerfully
Calls!

I Have Begun A Good Work In You!
I Will Finish It
IF
You Permit Me Too!
I Will Walk With You
IF
You Let Me!
I Will Lead You
IF
You Set Aside Self
And Let Me Safely Guide You
Your Whole Life Through And Through!

I Go Where I Am Welcomed!
I Will Never In Your Life
Uninvited
Walk In!
I Knock At Your Door
If You Answer And Invite Me In
I Will Be Your Companion
Until This Life's Journey's End!

BUT ...
You Must Call Upon Me
AND
I Will Answer!
You Must Spend Time With Me
For
Friends Who Love Their Friends
Always Care And Share!

I Am The Lord!
I Am The Good Shepherd!
I Am The Friend That Sticketh Closer Than A Brother
AND
I Am The King Of Love
Who Has A Home Prepared
For All Who Will Walk In My Truth
Blessing The Brethren
The Poor
The Meek
With Kindly, Brotherly, Love!

I Am Your Savior
Your Redeemer
The Holy God
I Have Rewards Set Aside
For All Who Faithfully Follow Me
Casting Aside Satan
The Liar
The Tempter
The Deceiver
Who Wishes To Be God!

Trust Me - I Love You!
Follow Me - I Know What Is Best For You!
Worship And Obey Me
In Spirit And By Truth
And
In The Day Coming
You Will Be Changed
Made Immortal
And
With Me Live
In Eternal Youth!

Father,
Please Lead Me
Day By Day
Teach Me Your Own Holy Ways
And
Help Me To Do What You Say!
I Love You, Lord!
I Worship You!
Please Lift Me Up
So That I May Lift You Up, Too!
I Desire With My Whole Heart
To Follow After You!

Welcome Home, Child!

My Lights Were Turned On!
I Can Now Clearly See!
I Can See Truth!
I Can Recognize Devilish Lies
AND
In The Name Of Jesus
By Prayers And Reading God's Truth
Satan Can No Longer
With His Dark Sayings
My Mind Tantalize!

Some Days Are Easier Than Others
Some Days Are Harder Than Most
BUT
In The Name Of Jesus Christ
Under The Agency Of The Holy Ghost
I Am Striving By God's Grace For Zion
Where Jesus Christ Will Be My Forever Host!
