PRAYER: Father, I Have Learned ...!




Father,

I Have Learned
- And Indeed It Is So -
That As Your Living Word Says
There Is No Profit
No Blessing
In Sin
In Living A Sinful Life
In Doing Sinful Things
For
Therein Is The Way Of Cruel Strife!



With A Heart Contrite
And
A Spirit Broken
I Confess
And
I Repent, Lord
So Please Keep Me
To Do Battle In The Good Fight
For I Now
- In The Faith Of My Jesus -
Deny The Liar
And
His Gutter-Walking Ways
And
I Look Up
For I Now Truly Know
From Whom My Help Comes -

The Ancient Of Days!

Father,

I Am Pleading!
Help Me To Not Look Back!
Help Me To Not Be Like
Mrs. Lot
For
I Have No Desire
To Suffer The Eternal Blot!



I Desire To See The Light
He Who Gives Life
In Peace
And 

In Raptures

When He Breaks The Clouds In The East!



I Desire To Be Glorified
To Be Clothed In Heaven's Garments Of White
And
I Desire To Rise Up
To Meet My Lord And My God
And
With All The Redeemed Of God
And 

With Angelic Companions

To Make The One-Way Flight!



Lord,
I Desire The New Name
The True Gold Crown
The Overcomers' Victory Palm
And
I Desire To Possess The Instrument Of Praise
That Golden Harp
And
Lord, Have Mercy
I Do Desire To Hear:
"My Child! Well Done!

Take This Your Place!"

Father,

Only You Can Bless Me!
Only The Holy Spirit Can Keep!
On Jesus Can Plead For Me
And
Only Holy Angels
- At Your Command -
Can Ever Protect Me!

I Give You Praise!


Grant Me, Lord
The Dailies - Grace
Faith, Mercy
And
Personal Over-Sin Victory
And
Please, Dear Father
Help Me To Sing Your Name
Like A Joyful Canary
Whenever That Decimating Fraud
In All His Iterations
Against Me
Does Approach!

Lord,
Help Me
So That Against Me
He Had Nothing About Which To Gloat!


Father,
I Willingly Give My Self To You
And
Also My Will
And
My Way
And
I, In Full Control
Of All My Faculties
Say:
In Jesus' Name
Lead The Way!
Lead The Way!



I Love You!
I Bless You!
In The Hope Of The Promises
- With Your Rich Blessing -
I Shall Stand
For
In Denying That Gross Liar
I Also Reject The Traditions 
Of Fallen Hell-bent And Bound Man!



I Give You All My Praise
And
All My Worship
In The Name Of Him
Who Shall Soon
Put In His Appearance - Jesus The Christ!
AMEN!
Lord, I Am Rejoicing In Thee!

VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: SITUATIONS : Win-Win!

I Heard Them Talking, I Tell You!
They Wanted - And I Quote -

"To Hide A Multitude Of  ... Sins!"

I Was Shocked Out Of My Gourd!
I Was Stunned Beyond All Toleration!
I Was Peeved With Their Philosophy
And
I Was Amazed At Their Temerity!

Tee, hee!

Why Are You Laughing?!

Stop That!
This Is Serious!

Of Course, It Is Serious
But
I Think You Misunderstood!

Really?!

Yes! Really!
Do You Know James?

James Who?!

Gracious Me!
The Book Of James
In The King James Bible?!

Oh, That  ... .

Yes, That!

What About It?!

Let's Take A Look At James Chapter 5  ...

... For What, Pray Tell?!

We Have To Find Out
How To Hide
A Multitude Of Sins, Do We Not?!

Are You Crazy?!
The Bible Would Never Tell You Hide Sins!
It Says, And I Quote 
1 John 1:9:
We AreTo Confess And Repent Of Our Sins!
We Are Not To Hide Sin
Because
Unconfessed Sin Is Sin Unforgiven!

Let's Go There Anyhow!

I Don't Believe You ...!

James 5 Verse
Verse
Verse 19 and Verse 20!

... Converteth The Sinner
Error  ... His Way
Save ... Soul
... Death
Hide ..  Multitude Of Sins!

Lord, Have Mercy!
It's Real!
It Really Says
"Hide!"
But, Why?!
That Seems Just, Just ... WRONG!!

You Misunderstand!
That "Hide" Does Not Mean
Keep Out Of The Knowledge Of God!
It Means To Cause Them
To Be Set Aside
As In
The Sea Of God's Forgetfulness
Because  ...

See The Word Converteth?!

Yes ...!?

Conversion Is Holy Spirit-Doings

AND
It Starts With Hearing
Believing
Doing The Right
Aka Confessing And Repenting Of The Evil
AND
Asking The Lord
To Take Control Of Our Lives

AND
Our Willingness
To Follow Truth

AND
Again, Do Right!

Man Cannot Save The Soul From Death!
That Is Almighty God-Doings!
This Whole Idea Is About
Reaching Out To God
For Salvation
AND
Receiving It!!

Remember,
The Apostle Paul Said:

"I Planted, Apollos Watered
AND GOD
Giveth The Increase!"

In Love, We Show A Person Their Error
Which We Have Accepted In Our Selves Is Error
Against God
AND
He - Believing The Word Of Truth To Be True -
Turns ... Unto Jesus Christ
So That He May Be Saved!

It's Just Like ... Like The Wedding Vows  ...

"... Forsaking All Others ...!"

Forsake Sin: Take Salvation!
Take Salvation: Forsake Sin!
It's All Win-Win!

I Get It!

We Do Our Part - Forsake Sin!
God Does His Part - Forgive Sin!

Yes, But ...!

Oh, Lord!
The Proverbial But!!

All I Was Going To Say Is:

Do Not Indulge 
In The Sin Of Presumption
In Your Forsaking Of Sin
So That You "May Get" Forgiveness!
You Cannot Maliciously (Presumptuously) Sin
Believing That God Will Protect You
From You Folly!

Forsaking Sin Is Just That!

Hello, Sin - GOODBYE!
Do Not Look Back!

We Are Not To Be Irreverent
AND
Tempt God
For, Indeed
That Would Be Gross Folly
AND
Would Place Us Squarely 
In The Devil's Encampment!
Nothing There Can Be Considered Jolly!

Further More
To Persistently Continue Indulging In Sin 
- By Malice -
Will Assuredly Leave One
To Be Branded By The Living God
As A Reprobate
AND

You Will Soon Hear:

"Leave Him To His Idols!"

AND
I Know That You Do Not Want To Go There!

Okay. Okay!
To Forsake Sin
Is To Turn Away
Never Looking Back!
They Are Hidden By God! 
Amen To That!

So  ...

Forsake The Devil!
Look To Jesus Christ The Lord!
Hold His Mighty Hand
AND
Head Faithfully
Unto The Great Reward!

Imagine That ...!
Hide A Multitude Of Sins ...!
Jesus Saves
So
Sin And Satan Have Got To Go!

Amen, My Friend!
Amen!

Do Not Try To Hide Your Sin
Because
It Will Be Found Out!
Give Them All To Jesus
For
His Hiding Means
Never To Be Seen
Ever Again
And
Never Chargeable
To Your Personal Account
Ever Again!
Hide And Abide In ... Jesus!




Say Your Prayers!

I Passed An Old Cross
Battered, Bloodied And Worn!
I - Sin-Bruised And Weary -
Queried Its Purpose
And Asked:

"How Was This Used!?"

The Answer Came Softly:


It Bore  The Lord
The King Of Life Who
Died To Redeem The Fallen
To Give Repentant Sinners
Respite From Strife
And Then
Eternal Life!

I Accepted The Answer
AND
I Searched For The Lord
Whom I Found
AND
Was Blessed By
As The Way, I Started
AND
Stayed Upon
As - In Faith -
I, To Life, Climbed!

The Way
Was Rugged Rutted
Lonely
Often Devoid Of People Who Cared
But Always
I Was Attended
By Him
Whose Suffering For Me
I Shared!

I Was Satisfied With Jesus
The King Of Life To Me
AND
I Wanted No Other
No Matter How Pleasant
The Other Was Painted To Be!

Time Passed Slowly ...

One Day
I Became Weary
For
I Had Not Uttered A Faith Prayer
AND
As Was To Be Expected
The Devil Did Appear!

I Came Upon The Old Cross
BUT
It Was Now Brand New!
It Was No Longer Rugged
AND
It Had Cushions 
AND
A Pew!

The Nails Were High Tech Bracelets
So As
No Suffering 
No Anguish
To Cause!
The Crown Of Cruel Thorns
Was Sponge-Lined
AND
He Who Was The Sacrifice
Bore Of Suffering 
No Trace
For
He Was A Rambling Gambler
Who
For The Living God
Had No Place!

I Reeled!
I Fell Back!
I Was Heart-Sore
AND
Sorely Repulsed
For
This Was The Counterfeit
Built
Published
By The Disgust!

I Was Offered ...

Faint Comfort!
I Was Encouraged To Dawdle
AND
Not To Redeem The Time
To Wander
To Ever Want
AND
To Perpetually Gather
AND
To Indulgently Recline
Indulging
Folly And Fantasy
Whatever And Wish-Craft 
AND
Greed
AND
To Be Petty
AND
Unkind
AND
To Find Escape In Hypnotic Drugs
AND
To Gratify My Need For 
Transporting Speed!

In Fear 
AND
Deep Distress
I Cried:

Father God
Have Mercy!
I Need You!
I Am In Need Of Rescue!
I Beseech You - Lord, Save!
I Have Been Foolish!
Forgive Me!
Satan Is Trying To Again
Make Me A Sin-Slave!


Come Home, Dear Child!
Come Home
 And
Rest!
Confess And Repent Of Your Sins
And
You Will Be Blessed!
Praying Brings Power
And
Hope For Rescue!
I Am Your Father!
Call On Me Always
And
I Will Always Answer
And
Lovingly Provide
For You!


I Did An About Face
An 180-degree Turn!
I Looked At My Master
AND
My Heart For Him Did Burn!

Brethren,
Listen To Me
I Beseech You!
Take Not The Easy Way
For
Therein Is Disaster
AND
The Rush To Hell
Where For Own-Sin
One Must Surely Pay!

The Mannish Majority Is Never Right!
BUT
God With Man ... IS
So
Pick Up 
AND
Keep
Your Rugged Cross
AND
Reject
Satan's High-Tech Counterfeit!

Christ Suffered
- How He Suffered -
To Make For Us A Way
So
Do Not Dismiss His Pain
Because
You Want To Give Him A Better Way!

Do Not Ever Forget
To Say
AND
Plead
Your Daily Prayers!
Position Is Not Key!
The Heart Inclined To God's Glory
Christ
Ensures
Salvation For Me And Thee!




The Old God Of Our Salvation
Is Perfect
For What Ails The Human Soul
But
The New God-For-The Current-Sages
Is Going To Take Adherents
To Outer Darkness
For
They Will Be Playing
The Reject-Jesus Card!

HAPPY SABBATH + Benighted Or Blessed?!




IF
All Things Work Together
For Good
To Them That Love The Lord
AND
Are Called
According To HIS Purpose
THEN
It Stands To Reason
That All Things Work Together
For Ill aka Bad
To Them That Hate The Lord
AND
Are Used
According To Satan's Purpose!

IFRighteous Faithful
Men Women And Children
Are Sighing And Crying
Over The Abominations
Being Practiced In The Land
Then It Stands To Reason
That The Man With The Writer's Inkhorn
Is Marking God's People
AND
Those Men With Their Slaughtering Weapons
Are Soon To Follow!

It Stands To Reason
That
IF
Truth Is Cast Down In The Street
THEN
It Must Mean That
Good Is Become Evil
AND
Evil Is Become Good
Light Is Become Darkness
AND
Darkness is Become Light
AND
In No Small Order
We Have Exchanged
Beauty
To Acquire... Ashes?!
We Are Benighted By Blight!

Ashes To Ashes!
Dust To Dust!
It Is Impossible
For The Human Soul To Rust!

Rest Is For The Weary
Not For Those Who Choose To Party On!
Judgment Day Is Coming
AND
Soon
Sin, Death
Hell
AND
Satan
Will Be Forever Gone!

God Is Not Gone!
God Is No Fraud!
Fraud Is From Satan
Liar
Who Aspires To Be Lord God!

God Eternal
Is On Heaven's Throne
AND
Heaven's Throne
Communicates Not With Cellular Phones!

Man-Made Cell Phones 
Need A Man-Made Satellite Power
For A Feed
BUT
Almighty God
The Consuming Fire
Is Power
That None Can
Deconstruct
Restrict
Fire
Nor
Retire!
Please Take Heed!

Those Who Are Sick Of Sin
AND
From Committing Sin
By God's Grace
Retire!
Those Who Would
See Jesus In Peace
Have Faith In Their Bellies
Burning
Like A Fire!

The Lake Of Fire
Is Not The Place
Where They Will
Retire
For They Will Know
No Disgrace
AND
Will In Triumph
Ascend
To Heights
Higher And Higher!

The Higher Satan Climbs
The More His "Tail" Is Exposed
AND
The More He Is Exposed
The More We See
That He Is Neither True
Nor
A King 
For He Possesses No Right-Living Clothes!

Clothes
Are A Symbol For Character
AND
Of One's Integrity
BUT
Satan Has None
For His Character
Is One Of
Consistent
Persistent
Pride-Filled 
Infidelity!

To Whom Do You Pray?
Who In Your Heart Holds Sway?

If God Is God
Serve Him
For
You Can't Pray To God
And
With The Devil, Himself, Play!

Don't Blink ... THINK! - Church Service

Have You Ever Been In A "Church" Service
Or
Viewed One
That Made Your Skin Crawl
Or
Made You Feel
- For Lack Of More Fitting Descriptives -
Contaminated
Unclean
Dirty?!


In Said Service
Did You Think To Ask Yourself:


Soul, Who Are They Worshipping?!

Did You Hear Things Said
AND
Wondered:

Why Is No One Objecting?!

AND
Did You Hear
AND
Observe
The Monotonous
Frenzied Repetition
Of Words Phrases
That Sent People Into Raptures
Uncaring
Unknowing
Unmindful
Of What It Is That They Are Doing?!


What Reason
- If Any -
Are You Aware Of
That Requires A Christian Called
To Repeat The Name


"Emmanuel!"


Or Even


"Jesus!"


For Ten (10) Solid Minutes?!


Is Not This Vain Repetition?
Is There A Purpose That Is Being Served?
Is Someone Being Instructed?
Is The Name Being Uttered With Understanding
AND

With Ever New Emotion?
Or
- As Is The Norm With The Heathen -
Is The Utterance A Decided Means
To Achieve A Particular 

AND
Perhaps Even

A Malicious
Nigh Unto
A Malevolent End?

Please Ask Yourself ...

What Is That Unclean Spirit
That Is Being Openly Invited In
AND
Welcomed Into
The Church Of God
AND
Why Is No One Objecting?


God Himself
Calls Us To Reason With Him
Our Maker
Sustainer
Provider
Healer Helper
Our Salvation
Our King
AND
Where Necessary
Our Judge!


So ... 


Why Are We
Intelligent Creatures
Permitting
Unregenerate
Priests Pastors Teachers
To Give The Keys 

To The Hearts Of The People Of God
Into The Hands Of That Vile One

Satan?

Satan Is A Church Goer
Willing
Bona Fide!
He Has No Need To Go 

To Dancing Hells
When Who He Wants
Is Wearing Church Clothes

AND
Styling
Stepping High!


Lazy Thinking In A Christian
Is An Attribute To Be Despised
For It Permits
Unfettered Wickedness
To Bloom
Grow
AND
God Forbid
Thrive!


Know What It Is You Are Doing
AND

Why
- In God's Name -
It Is Being Done
AND
If The Answer
Contains Not A 


"Thus Saith The Lord!"

People!
Be Smart!
Cut And Run!

Don't - To Your Self - Lie!

No Idiot Children Will Be In Heaven!
All There Will Have Said:


Satan, Nay!

Jesus, Yeah!



Having Made The Bold Decision Freely
AND
Not By Coerced Descent
Into A Hypnotized Frenzy!


Watch Where You Pray!
Watch With Whom You Play?!

AND
Be Mindful Of What You Say
When You Go
To God In Pray!


You Cannot Come To God
AND
Tell Him That
You Want
Desire
To Bear His Blessed Name

AND
Stress To Him That
You Will Provide
Your Own Food
(Your Own "Holy" Word)

AND
Your Own Clothing
(Your Own Character)

AND
Think
That You Shall Escape
The Lake Of Fire!


The Way Is Clear
Either - Or
Broad Way
Or
Straight Way Narrow Path!
There Is No Good Way Marked:


"Way Of Man!"


Aka Way Of Perishable Cloth
For That Way Is Always
Always
The Broad Way Of The Lost!


Get A Grip On The Holy God
Through Jesus The Christ
On
The Way Of The Cross
AND
Give Man's Traditional Emotionalism
The "Not-For-Me" Toss!



Worship The Almighty God
In Spirit
And
In Truth!
