HOW INDEED TO HONOR CHRIST?

We are His children you say,

But He speaks–you walk away—

Hypocrites all–

At Christ’s feet fall–

Before ye are burned on that Day!

Burned by your own lust

And mealy-mouthed lack of trust…

All-Mighty God

You noise abroad

As deity gone bust!

Honor the Father and Son,

Shun not the Spirit—be done

With self deception–

There’s no reception

For any double-minded one!

–Jonathan Caswell

(Why make God seem loathsome because of your lukewarm commitment?*)

*The Book of Revelations 3:15-16  (New Testament of the Holy Bible)

ACCEPT NO IMITATIONS!

All kinds of stories about Him,

Major magazines by their whim…

Pile up “facts”

From historical “acts”

Pushing faith so thin.

Glorious videotography,

Impressing the simple like me…

Easily swayed

With not much aid,

Cast doubt on Jesus’ deity!

“Christian scholars” are used,

In programs where faith is disabused…

Faith in God’s word

Portrayed as absurd,

Is implied and accused.

Subtle persuasion proceeds,

knocking support from God’s deeds…

Historical’s fine

But draw the line,

Or your Accuser succeeds!’-

I’ve heard the insults of men,

And arguments of religion…

That cunningly catch

Your faith dispatch,

Woo you to legalism!

Stand firm even to stand,

Don’t be deceived even then…

Christ is your King

Give God everything,

Don’t stay submerged in you sin.

–Jonathan Caswell

VISITING ISRAEL

AN OPINION POST!

Emperor Constantine’s

Mother mapped out pilgrim schemes…

Based on local say

History in play,

So physical evidence teems!

Visit the Land of the Bible,

Of which Muslim clerics think libel….

Tearing down sites

To which they’ve no rights,

We depend of FAITH and its survival!

Come before more’d destroyed,

But Israeli people are buoyed…

By concepts giving

Freedom for living,

Not something with which to be toyed.

Christians and Jews abroad,

Are appropriately awed…

Peoples of the Book

Come to Israel and look,

At the good provision of their God.

–Jonathan Caswell

JUST A TALKING DONKEY!!

JUST A TALKING DONKEY!

Balaam had no choice,

His donkey developed  voice…

GOD let him go

In order to show,

Israel was God’s choice!!
