HAPPY SABBATH + Professors Professing Profession Not In Their Possession!





I Professed Religion
AND
Religion Placed Me In A Church
BUT
- Truth Be Told -
My Character Shows
If 
I'm To Christ
Connected Or ... Not
AND
Determines Which Residence
- For Eternity -
I Deserve!

Church-Character
Or
Christ-Connected
Potato Tomato
Vegetable Fruit
I Say The Prayers!
I Give The Offerings!
I Pay The Tithes! - God Owes Me!
I Did Not Enter A Crap Shoot
So
When I Die - I Fly!

Hold Up, Big Man!
You Sound Like You And God Does Pitch Marbles!
You Must Be Drunk
For
You Are Beside Your Self!

The Only Thing God "Owes" You
FOR YOUR SINSIs A Six By Nine Grave
AND
At The End Of Time
A Permanent Bath
In The Fire And Brimstone Lake!
Are You Working For The Fake?!

But, Wait Though!
Why You Had To Go There?
You Can't Tek A Joke?
Your Sense Of Humor 'Pon A Lunch Break?!

I Have No Sense Of Humor
When It Comes To My Soul
AND
Neither Should You
IF
Highest Heaven 
- With The Lord Jesus Christ -
Is Your Goal!

I Used To Be Flippant
In Matters Of Faith!
Character Was An Alphabet Letter
AND
Lunch Was The Time For Grace!

Mercy Was An Old Slave
AND
Love Drove A Bank's Truck
AND
Jesus Was That Spanish Man
Who At The Store Sold Brooklax!

But ...

As Fate ...
Sorry ...
As The Lord Would Have It
I Met The Real Jesus
- Last Name Christ -
The Son Of The Father
Who Broke Satan's Trick Dice
AND
I Do Not Fear To Tell You
That I Have Been Changed
For
I Took Of Christ's Salvation
For A Repentance 
AND
Confession Exchange!

Sure You Did!

Brother, You Make Keep Your Skepticism
For
What I Say Is True!
Jesus Christ Set Me
On The Right Path Straight
AND
If You Let Him
He'll Give You A Fix-up, Too!

Jesus Took All The Garbage I Had!
He Forgave Me My Sin!
He Gave Me Free Grace
AND
True Mercy
AND
Set Aside For Me
In Heaven
- God's Home -
A Personally-Prepared Place!

I Have Invited The Holy Spirit
To Abide Within Me
AND
Though Facing Fierce Opposition
I Am Letting The Holy Spirit Have His Way
AND
Jesus Christ's Character
Is Being Revealed In Me!

I Now Have A Teachable Spirit!
I Approach The Living God As Would A Child
ANDI Am Determined
In The Tents Of Wickedness
Nevermore To Abide!

God Is Good All The Time!
All The Time
- Thank God -
God Is Good
Or I Would Not Be Here
To Tell You How I
In The Faith Of Jesus
With The Comfort Of The Holy Spirit
AND
Under The Protection Of The Holy Angels
The Devil Withstood!

There Have Been Good Days
Bad Days
AND 
Days Never Likely To Be Called Best
BUT
Thank God For Jesus
AND
His Saving Grace
I Will Never The Stench Of Hell Ingest!

Christ In Me
IS
My Hope For Glory
For
I, Humbled
Believe The Gospel Story!

I No Longer Play Church
Nor Practice Feel-Good Religion
For
The Oracles Of God
The Word Of Truth Does Proclaim
AND IHaving For Myself Read It
AND
Am Reading It
Will No Longer The Name Of God
Profane!

Please, I Beseech You
Make Christ Your True Portion
AND
Never Again
By Deliberation
Or Jest
His Holy Name Disdain!

I'm Sorry!
Dear Lord,
I Am Sorry!
Please Forgive Me My Sin
And Make Me Anew!

Please Remove My Stain
And Erase My Record
The Evidence Of My Shame
For
In The Name Of Jesus
I Humbly, Humbly, Plead!
AMEN.
