My brother’s wife, a poem

Her name is Arleen, to my brother Bob she was his Queen.

Many of the things she did went unseen, she was always quiet and never mean.

When keeping the house with all its bills and costs she was very keen.

They always had help from above; their Lord Jesus kept them with his love.

One sad day Bob did depart, he left carrying his great love for Arleen and the boys in his heart.

From this world of woe our beloved Robert did go, he is not gone as some would say, he is in Heaven with Jesus to stay.

His beloved wife and sons will always remember that day.

Many remember the good works he did walking with Jesus, along with me, his brother, by the way.

We miss him very much and life moves on but the same light shines in his family,

proof to the world of the Master’s touch!

Crosby his name was to be, sent by God, a new wonder for his family to see.

He was sent from above, blessed with God’s love, he and Grayson will fit together like a glove!

Gray will be his loving big brother, he will be keen to protect him from the bad other.

He will see what other people cannot see, special gifts he will have, unlike the ones given to you and me.

He and Gray will have a bond of brotherly love, their walk with God will be led from above.

The Holy Spirit will be their guide, from evil they will not hide, for in their Lord Jesus they will always abide!

Walking in him

Since our Lord departed this earth our hearts have been heavy and sad,

but he gave us a friend, the Holy Spirit who has made us glad!

A body the Father had prepared for his Son, in order that souls would be won.

His physical body was limited to that Holy land, but the good news of him would spread to the whole world by God’s mighty hand.

With Peter he began to build his Church, his mystical body, me and you, his greater works through us, gifted by God to do.

Like bright lights we shine in the darkness and the shadows must depart, God’s chosen see and there is a stirring in their hearts.

Their eyes are opened their ears hear, the *dead come alive to the Bread of Heaven who then is near.

Awake oh sleeper the Son has risen upon you, he has removed your heart of stone that was given to you from the Fall, a new heart you now have and your sins he cannot **remember at all.

He is still walking on the earth in his people; you can see him in the light they bring, of his praises they always sing.

These are his trees that bear good fruit, he plants them in the world to behold, and through their good works the Gospel is told.

They are the Church, his body doing his greater works, his spotless bride for whom he died.

They are walking with him in a world of darkness and gloom but they shine with a light brighter than the full moon.

*”Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. John 5:25 NASB.

**”Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD, “Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool. Isaiah 1:18 NASB.

A poem for Dad

Mankind, the human race, the earth floating in space.

The *Sun God’s shining face, my soul saved by his grace.

Love is the attribute of God, shown through Jesus his son,

and on this earth he did trod.

To his arms I did flee, he opened my eyes and now I do see.

What a beautiful creation, when the Angels saw it they sang with

elation.

What beauty, what wonder I marvel at his bolts of lightning with

it’s awesome thunder.

The rainbow is a sight to behold; the meaning behind it is a story

to be told from the days of old.

He covers the night sky with a blanket of stars the full moon is a delight.

Truly the Heavens declare your glory you are the best Dad this man ever had.

*The Sun reminds me of God, it lights the earth which brings the crops, yet

like God, it cannot be gazed at with our human bodies.

 

God is our true Father for the whole creation came from him, he is the World’s

Greatest  Dad and I am blessed to be able to call him my Father through faith in

Jesus.

Things promised to the meek

Those who seek your face Lord are closer to you than many of the human race,

the things they do are a disgrace.

Your Son and thy word they hate, not knowing that this has sealed their fate!

With you Lord I desire to talk, just a closer walk, when I am weak, it is only you

I seek.

Consider Jesus who is meek and mild blessed are all those he knows to be his child.

His sheep are they, those who follow the way, children of the day and light, overcomers through his Spirit, filled with his might.

They are the salt that brings flavor to the world of woe, through their good works

Jesus they do show.

Many promises to them you made, eternal life, love hope and joy, all our needs met, deliverance from the grave.

*Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5 NIV.

*Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Matthew 11:29 KJB.

A donkey was I

Tied to a post, no hope, just pie in the sky.

I belonged to another master, not you Lord and only his will could I do.

My offspring was bound with me, beasts of burden but not for thee.

Did you know that this donkey represents every Born Again believer

who has been freed from Satan’s Kingdom, the great deceiver?

Bound in sin and trespasses were we, no love Lord for thee, your enemies we were born to be.

Then one glorious day the Prince of Peace came my way, beautiful words he did say that day.

*Loose him and bring him to me, now I only serve him for the world to see.

Once a prisoner now free but there was a great cost he bore it all on the cross,

the just dying for the unjust-me.

 

*Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.

I love to look beyond the “Letter” of the word to see the hidden “Deep” things of God revealed by the Holy Spirit.  As the word says, “The letter kills, the Spirit gives life”. Great truths are revealed in this actual account of Jesus sending his Servants to bring this donkey and its colt to him and they serve him.

These scriptures reveal the Salvation of every believer; they are bound by Satan and can only do his will.

They are “Loosed” by the Holy Spirit and Satan is powerless to stop this. The colt represents the believers family that will also be saved, there may be contention as Jesus said there would be, saying he would bring a sword into the home of a new believer. But that home is sanctified by the Holy Spirit who will draw them to Jesus-in his time. The believer is encouraged to keep their eyes on Jesus through obedience. My Mom won my Stepfather to the Lord without a word through her obedience love and good works. Believers never hit those family members over the head with the Bible or preach to them, let the Holy Spirit do HIS will.

In the word we read over and over of God saving entire families even the servants as shown in the Book of Acts. He told us how an angel had appeared to him in his home and had told him, ‘Send messengers to Joppa, and summon a man named Simon Peter. and he will speak words to you by which you will be saved, you and your entire household.’ Acts 11:13-14 NASB.

It will be your righteous behavior and good works that will glorify God through you! A light is seen but makes no noise!

** So Pilate released Barabbas to them. He ordered Jesus flogged with a lead-tipped whip, and then turned him over to the Roman soldiers to be crucified. Matthew 27:26 NLT. (This is another example of the deep things of the word by the Holy Spirit, every believer is a type of Barabbas, we were enemies of God and deserved to die but we were “Loosed” and Jesus paid the penalty in our place. He fulfilled God’s promise that Jesus would die for HIS people to save them from their sins).

***”The LORD looked down from his sanctuary on high, from heaven he viewed the earth, to hear the groans of the prisoners and release those condemned to death.” Psalm102:19-20 NIV.

****In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, 1-Peter 3:1 NASB.

The next time you read of the Lord Jesus riding to Jerusalem upon a donkey and its colt remember that he saved you and your families who now serve him lifting him up on their backs, carrying their King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Why was I born?

I was born to be like thee Lord; I was born to be with thee Lord!

You formed me in my mother’s womb where none could see; you fit me together and had a plan for me.

I am a man who is made in your own image and likeness as Adam and Eve but you recreated my dead spirit so no longer Satan, could deceive.

Adam and Eve used fig leaves their sin to hide, my fig leaves were the same kind of the religion of man, it’s the do it yourself kind, done by the works of your own hand.

Your Holy Spirit you sent after me, no matter where I went he followed after, my sin and guilt he did convict me, naked I stood before him, thank God the world could not see.

My Father sent him to me to open my eyes as he did for the blind man so I could really see.

Now I understood why I was born, I was a gift given by the Father to his Son, my day had come, God has given me a new song.

Redeemed am I, my hope now is far beyond the sky, a brother of Jesus a Son like him, delivered from death, free from sin, a new life to begin.

Satan could not hold me in his Kingdom, I was a donkey tied to the tree of sin but my Lord said “Loose him” and bring him to me.

Did you know that our Lord Jesus came to set the prisoner free?

He is plundering Satan’s Kingdom even now removing his sheep from bondage, their testimony of the Lord gives glory to him for all to see.

I love you Lord, I and all your people are in one accord, we do agree, you are wonderful, the light and hope of the world made manifest for all to see.

*”Go into the village over there,” he said. “As soon as you enter it, you will see a donkey tied there, with its colt beside it. Untie them and bring them to me. Matthew 21:2 NLT.

*”I have revealed you to the ones you gave me from this world. They were always yours. You gave them to me, and they have kept your word. John 17:6 NLT.

*Let me illustrate this further. Who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man like Satan and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger–someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house. Mark 3:27 NLT.

*The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 NIV.

My Dentist, what a work of Art!

Her name is Andrea; she is like a pearl of great price, proficient and very nice.

She cares much for her patients like you and me, her talent is there for all to see.

I believe she has a God given gift; her work gave my spirit a big lift.

She may be a little small but in God’s sight she stands tall!

As a Minister I always pray about everything, for this special need, he brought me a

Dentist who could sing!

During her work you may hear her sing, it helped me to relax and peace it did bring.

What else can I say; I’m glad Lord you brought her my way.

I pray that the Lord will bless her and her family every day.

A love story

Through his love the Lord created us out of clay, by the way,

he did it for his own glory; it’s not a simple story.

When Adam was formed something was missing it seems, he

needed someone special, a woman of his dreams. Eve had it all,

she was beautiful; you would never see one like her at the Mall.

She had everything Adam could desire; in her he took great pride,

this was before the fall and they had nothing to hide!

Husbands today have area’s in which they lack but God gave them a

woman to take up the slack.

God gave Adam a perfect woman to love; she was his lover, partner and friend, a marriage made in Heaven that was to have no end.

Despite their fall through sin, their marriage lasted 800 years in all!

That’s awesome and I reckon, sadly, some marriages last only a second

With Adam and Eve, the Lord loved these two, ancestors of me and you.

Remember, only God can give you the love of your life, your own choice can bring much strife!

 

Many people make decisions every day never knowing if they made the right one. Christians are told in God’s word to pray about all things especially if seeking a Husband or Wife. We are to cast all our care upon Jesus for he cares for us.

A dead man walking!

Though I am dead, I still walk, talk and sing praises to God my King.

When he died, I was there with him on that cross, reconciled to God and not

to ever suffer loss.

That day I died and no longer live for sin and pride, for it is Christ who lives in me,

which I cannot hide.

A new life has begun; this hidden treasure within me is the glory of God given to

me through his Son.

This is the same Shekinah Glory of God that was in his Temple in the Bible we do

read but when Jesus died, from that Temple the Glory did leave.

Now God dwells in Temples not made by hands, they are believers in Jesus, found

in all lands.

All these dead people walking and talking but it is not them but Christ who lives to offer the world Eternal Life which only he can give!

 

For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Colossians 3:3 KJV.

 

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 NLT.

 

We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.  2-Corinthians 4:7 NLT.

 

However, the Most High doesn’t live in temples made by human hands. As the prophet says, Acts 7:48 NLT.

And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:

“I will live in them
and walk among them.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people 2-Corinthians 6:16 NLT.
