VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: Savoring Satan





I
 Me
   My
     Mine
        Myself
Are One!
One Person
One Ideal
One Fact
One Foe
No Good Fillip
No Good Gold!

Self
AND
Self-Adulation
Self- Gratification
AND
Self-Aggrandisement
Are
The Lost Soul's Sole Goal!

I
 Me
   My
     Mine
        Myself
Are Strung Out
On
Self Dope!
Self-Made Rope!

I
 Me
   My
     Mine
        Myself
Speak
To Self
About Self
For Self
Because Of Self
Identifying Self
AND
Creates Its Own Savor
AND 
Is Its Own Savior!

How Ridiculous!
What's Wrong With Saying
I
 Me
   My
     Mine
        Myself?

Nothing ... By Itself!
BUT
When Every Single Solitary
Syllable Of Speech
Stems
Starts
AND
Spreads Out
Like A Line-Dried White Sheet
Then ... THEN
Is When You Know
That Self
Is Savoring Satan
Imbibing His Delusions
His Wine
His Willfulness
Forgetting That There Is The Eternal God
Seeking
To Save A Soul Lost
Who Is Walking Wild 
AND
Blind
AND
At Fearful Cost!

Oh.

Give Self To The Savior
AND
Satan Can't You Sway!
Give Self To Satan
AND
You Are On A Hellbound Cruise
Called
Own-Sin Pay-day!

That's Awful Harsh! 

So Was The Savior's Sacrifice!

Oh.

How Erudite You Are! Not!!

I'm Sorry!
It's Just That
All The Years
Everybody Said:

"Lift Up Your Self
For
Self-Made Always Gets Fed!"

It Seemed Sooo ... Simple
But How You Put It
It Is Just ... Saaaad!

Self Without A Savior 
Is
The Self ... Sacrificed
On The Altar Of Ambition
With Greed As The Steed
Pride As The Nose-Ring Lead
AND
Satan Aggressively Stimulating
Your "Felt" Need!

Anything
That We Can Do Without
Is Not A Need!
What We Need
Really Need
Is The Savior!

And ...

The Savior Says
Seek First
The Kingdom Of God
AND
His Righteous
AND
All Good Things 
Will Be Added On
To Me 
AND
To You!

Well ...
Since You Put It Like That
I Will Acknowledge
That I Am Self Centered ...! 

And ... 

I Shall Say That
If You Acknowledge
That You Are By Self
Cornered
AND
Appeal To Jesus
For Relief
He Can Do A Good Thing
In AND For
You!
Salvation In Him Is Achieved
AND
Satan Can You Any Long Deceive!


I Like That!
You've Got Yourself A Deal!

God Be With You!
Blessings Await!
Satan Is The Liar!
Leave Him
To His Just Fate!
Ignore His Sly Titillate
AND
His Tried
Tired Tittivate
AND
You Will Gain The Right
By Trusting
AND
Obeying
Our Lord Jesus
To Enter The Heavenly City
Through
The Protected Gate!
