BECAUSE They Trust God!

The Bible Does Not Say
May Be
Probably
Almost
Could Be!
It Emphatically Says:

BUT
The Salvation Of The Righteous
IS
Of The Lord:
He IS Their Strength
In The Time Of Trouble!
(Psalm 37:39)



Does This Not Say To You
That There Are Those
... Other Than Righteous
AND
There Is Ever A Time Of Trouble
... In The Life Of The Righteous?

We Who Have Chosen
To Be Chosen By God
Have Answered The Call
Of God's Holy Spirit
AND
Have Wittingly Turned Our Backs
To The Roaring Fraud!

We Do Not Stand Upon Ceremony
Indulging
In False Piety
BUT
Lean Heavily
Upon The Strong Arm
Of The Jealous God
Who Inhabits Eternity
While Able Also
To Live In Me And In Thee!

We Do Not Hold To The Doctrine Called:

Aversion To Self-Denial


AND
We Do Not Gravitate
To The Smooth-Things
Ticke-My-Ears Church
For Thereby

- In Our Lives -
That Renders
Null And Void
The Reason For Jesus Christ's
Birth Work
AND
Unto-The-Death
Criminal Trial!
Oh, Perish That Denial!

We Walk In The Light
Uncomfortable Though It Be
For
Our God Commands It
IF
We Will Live Lives Godly
For
A Child Of The Light Of Life
Cannot Inhabit Darkness
Neither Can He With Death Play
Believing
It Is No Issue
AND
Cost-Less!
Doing Such Is Altogether Useless
AND
Foolish, I Say!

Light Has NO Consort With Darkness!
Death Has NO Consort With Life!
Jesus Christ Brooks NO Consort With The Devil
AND
We Cannot Call God's Truth
A Fair Lie
AND
Believe That We Will To Have Fly!

Straight Is The GateAND
Narrow Is The Way
AND
Few There Be That Find It
For
Convenience By Accommodating Self
To The Ways Of Sinful Man
Will Have Leave Man
With No Short Back And Sides
To Keep Sin-Obscuring Long Hairs
From Blinding 
That Through Which Man Sees  ... His Sin-Clouded Eyes!

Brethren ...

Oh, TasteAND
See
That The Lord Is Good
AND
Feel Free
To Call On The Shepherd
Who Saved Noah From The Flood!

And, For Good Measure  ...

Be Pleased
To Lean On The Branch
That Drew Water
From The Rock
AND
Rest
AND
Abide In The Guide
From Whom Our Wants
Are Lovingly
- Daily -
Supplied!

Satan Lied!
Christ Died!
BUT
By The Grace Of God
Is Hope For Heaven Supplied
To Those Who
Away From Corroding Sin
Breathe
Free Salvation's Air
Rarefied!
