And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are:

for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets,

that they may be seen of men.

Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  6.5

CHRIST’S COMING (5th card)

Prophet and king had gladly told

And written it with care.

The young had learned it from the old,

Both delighted in the share.

 

The beggar heard it and believed

In His future wealthy reign.

Oppressed people were not grieved,

A loving Ruler, they were to gain.

 

They wanted Christ, That Chosen Race.

Although the Book told the place,

They missed Him. A sad case!

 

Pastor and layman with voices bold

And teachers also bear,

The message, “We are cold, too cold

To go with Him, so fair.”

 

We’ve been chilled and deceived,

By “riches”, in the main.

I’m afraid we’d be relieved

If He didn’t come again.

 

Relieved, because of our slow pace.

Relieved, we lack His offered grace.

Relieved, not to see Him face to face.

– eab, DEC. ’69

When a gangster is really powerful – he does not want you to know that he is a gangster

NOR does he want you to know he is a powerful.

The antichrist system does not want you to know they are THAT system

nor how Powerful they really are.

Heaven sent a covering for all the world last night.

Was it red? Was it orange? (Imagine such a sight. K)

Was it yellow, green, blue? What would these hues do?

Was it purple? Was the covering indigo? No.

Heaven’s cover had all those colors – it was “light.”

O Zion, haste, thy mission high fulfilling,

To tell to all the world that God is light,

That He who made all nations is not willing

One soul should perish, lost in shades of night.

Refrain

Publish glad tidings, tidings of peace;

Tidings of Jesus, redemption and release.
