EXODUS 20: 3-5 A POEM

Have no other gods before Him,

Not even by innocent whim…

It’s suicidal

To worship an idol,

Walking on ice very thin.

So periodically

He must sort his files to see…

What grabs his heart–

With that he must part,

‘Tis better than hypocrisy!

Culling out accumulations

Of any conflagrations,,,

That hold him fast

He will cast,

Out for sanctification.

CHOSEN BY GOD–NOW GROW!

CHOSEN BY GOD–NOW GROW!

(Ephesians 1: 1-6; 15-23)

Open my eyes, oh Lord Most High,

That I see and comprehend…

All the Spirit  found in Thy Word–

The Wisdom that has no end.

Brothers and sisters praying for me,

Uplifting me through prayer…

That I may see and practice–

Avoiding demonic snare!

Shepherd and under-shepherd both,

Ply Christ Jesus’ troth,

His Body–His Bride–

The Church might abide

In the mind of Christ with growth.

Strengthen then your resolve,

To ask Spirit’s help to see…

All God’s wonder, power and mercy

And with the same, treating me!

If forceful men and women

Can hoodwink the American news crowd…

And not challenged for their deception,

We humble ourselves–not Proud.

If they can’t see through veiling,

How then can we…

Except humble asking for wisdom

From our Father God in eternity?

If only…the Christians would rise up–

If only they believed for sure…

That Christ, God’s Son, gave us Power

In His Spirit to do and endure!

–Jonathan Caswell

WE GIVE OUR MAKER PRAISE

WE GIVE OUR MAKER PRAISE

We give our Maker praise

For all sorts of cloud and haze…

He wraps Himself proud

With myriad dark cloud,

We call Him the Ancient of Days!

All that with breath rejoice,

God  made Man His CHOICE…

Of being able

To choose God’s table,

Or favor and love to lose.

God wants with you to walk.

And not folk who just talk the talk…

Will you agree

His child to be,

Or for eternity balk?

–Jonathan Caswell

THEORY–SMEARY!

THEORY–SMEARY!

We humans love theories,

Arguing over trite queries…

Salvation needs

Done by deeds,

Debaters would whip up furies!

Some adhere to total free will,

Or God has us planned to the hilt…

Clever ruses

Debating who chooses,

Causing the hopeful to wilt.

Whether its God or you.

We still have a choice to do…

Come now decide

With God abide,

Or are you stuck in glue?

–Jonathan Caswell

ROMANS 12: 2 AND 2ND PETER 1:4

ROMANS 12:2 AND 2ND PETER 1:4

Transform your minds

From all worldly kinds…

Sexual preference

And worldly reference,

The use of which make you blind.

Blind to the purpose of God,

In fact, what I say is odd…

Why set aside

Our comfort and pride

to serve this jealous God?

Worldly things are corruption,

Subject to frequent eruption

Of new desires

Devilish fires,

Through inner sinful unction.

We all fall short of God,

Through Adam and eve–born flawed…

This inborn sin

Condemns us within,

Isolates us from God.

Only one person cleaned

The slate so we’d be redeemed…

Under the Law

Jesus did all,

In what we couldn’t do…he beamed!

Then willingly paid our debt

Going to the cross, being dead…

We’re dead to our sins

If we die with Him,

In our spirits, making Him Lord and Head.

God resurrected Christ up

After Jesus Christ drank the cup…

Of God’s wrath

To clear the path

For our being in Heaven…to with Him sup!

Clothed in His righteousness,

We can enter before the Father faultless…

Holy Spirit’s a seal

That Salvation is real,

And Sanctification will progress.

Why persecute the godly

Who may look upon you oddly…

Do you realize

They see with God’s eyes

And you’re mocking Him bodily?
