SUMMATION: Man's Life ...!






Man's Life
Is Summed Up
In 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Six (6) Words:

Trial!
Probation!
Reflection!
Expectation!
Recompense!
AND
Retribution!

If We Are On TRIAL
It Means We Are Presumed To Be Guilty Of Sin!

Actually ... 

There Is No Presumption -
All Have Sinned!
We Do Not Attain
Reach To God's Glory!

If We Are On PROBATION
We Have Been Proved Guilty
BUT GODThrough Christ's Merits
Is Giving Us The Opportunity
To Be Rendered
To Be Made Clean!

We Must Live Up To "The Trust!"
We Must Stick To The Bargain
Or Feel
The Full Weight Of The Law
Because We Reject
Free Grace
AND
Presently Available Mercy!

In Probation
We Reflect On
Where Why We Went Wrong
AND
With Risen Understanding
We Have The EXPECTATION
Of Full Release
Upon Fulfillment Of The Obligations
Of The Gracefilled Probation!

With Probation Ceased
AND
Final Judgment Arrived
We Have Before Us
RECOMPENSE
Payment Of Achieved Compensation
Elevation To The Hallowed Estate
Past Record Expunged
Entrance Into The Witness Protection Program
With
Assigned New Name
New Home
A Completely New Identity
AND
The Overcomers' Transport Plan!

If We Failed Probation
As Evidenced By Heaven's Records
Buttressed By
Our Own Self-Incriminating
Can't-Be-False Witness
We Can
- In The Judgment Hour
On The Day Of God's Wrath -
Expect A Full Cup Of God's Justice
Unmingled With God's Mercy
In The Aspect Called
RETRIBUTION!

RETRIBUTIVE
JUDGMENT:


Rejected!
Bound Hands And Feet
And
Cast Into Outer Darkness
To Be Eternally Separated
From God
In The Second Death 
From Whence
There Is No Recall!
Ever!

Those In Retributive Justice

Are Completely Consumed!


I Was Born In Sin
AND
Shapened In Iniquity
Aka Planned Sin!

On Trial
I Was Convicted
BUT
In Mercy
The Judge
Did Me
A Probationary Term Give!

I Had Time To Reflect
On Past Deeds
To Confess
AND
To Repent
To Turn Over The Old Man
AND
To Attire Myself
In Redemption Song's New "Shirt And Pants!"

In Truth
I Desire The Expectation
Which Says
"He Knows The Thoughts He Thinks Towards Me
To Give Me An Expected End ..."

Which Includes
Soul Peace!
AND
The Promise That
Eyes Have Not Seen
Nor Ears Heard
The Things That God
Has Prepared
For Them That Love Him!

I Should Note Here That
The "Love" We Have For God
Must Be Love Unto Death
Which Leads The Faithful
To Eternal Life!
We Cannot Fool God!

I Should Clearly State Here
That
With Expectation Embodying Love For
AND
Faith In
The Lord Christ
I Look Forward To The Recompense Of
Sure Reward
For
Having Determined
By Grace Through Working Faith
Because Of Love For My Lord
Be It Known
That Satan Has No Part In Me
AND
He Can Take My Share Of Retribution
AND
All Of His Own
On His Own!

I Can See The Nail Prints!
I Can See The Gash In Christ's Side!
I Can See The Scars Left By The Crown Of Thorns
AND
I Can See The Look Of Love
That Hides The Depth Of The Sacrifice Made
To Get Me Into
God's Safe Haven
In Heaven
The Forever Home!

I Desire To Have My Faith Made Sight!
I Desire To Live In The Land Of No Night!
I Desire The Private Audience
With The Redeemer
The Prince Of Peace
AND
I Desire To Travel
To World's Unknown
To Tell Of The Love Of
The Lover Of My Soul
Who Died
To Save A Wretch
A Bold Sinner Such As I Had Been
So That I Could Walk With Him
On The Golden Shores
No Longer Separated
No Longer Needing
A Way To Call
To Get Into
The Father's House
My Forever Home!

I Have Accepted Christ's Offer!
Do You?
Will YOU?!
