Ages now past, when the earth was yet young,

Before bard had rhymed or soloist sung,

While first fruits were freshly ripening gold,

And Adam was getting to know his Eve;

Lucifer came, the world’s first malcontent.

Fellowship with God was severely rent.

Woman, man, believed the lie satan told.


Centuries have followed in each other’s ruts.

Clans and tribes have hated each other’s guts.

Swords have evolved to bombs in all their might;

Man has had unimaginable loss.

Why the trials, the pain, the unholy tears?

Why this multitude of yet spoken fears?

Because satan still lies about his fight!


Satan deceives, more-than-ever, worldwide.  

He lies about what Christ did/does provide.

Claims magic, cultish rites the soul can save.

“saviors” lead dogmatists and pagans both

Away from Calvary, so awesomely won,

And God’s ONE way, Jesus, the Holy Son;


Deceiving them, all-the-way-to-the-grave.

And THIS season, does it escape the frauds?

Christ is shadowed; a “fat jolly” gets lauds.

Schools–strongholds of truth(?)–cannot praise the King

(What did God “do” to get kicked-out of school?)

(Why does Jesus receive such deep dislike?)

(Has chance made “satan,” “santa” so alike?)

In elves they believe–of Rudolph, they sing.


Don’t be deceived; false unity and creeds

Save not, nor balancing good and bad deeds.

The Incarnation. That’s God’s greatest act!

God Came. (No sham here; for God cannot lie.)

That eternal truth let Christmas PROCLAIM.

Let’s our Lord’s redemptive birthday reclaim.

Christ came; Came to save us. And–THAT’S A FACT!

1Th 4. 16 – 17

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

“Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

Most of us appreciate going places where we are appreciated (a family gathering, certain church, etc.). Don’t go to hell. If, I am very serious, if damned souls even know that another soul is there (it may be similar to solitary confinement) they will not be glad to see you join them (rich man did not want his brothers to come, Luk 16.28).

I was out for a peaceful swim,

When God told me to “pick up” him,

Some bad prophet who was “all wet”

(That odd taste I remember yet L).

Men, don’t run from God on a whim!

Man prides himself in making two or more objects “exactly” alike

(within a tolerance of 1 to 2 1000th of an inch). God, who could make a billion objects EXACTLY alike (forget any “1000th inch tolerance” J), has no “need” to do spread such “ticky-tacky.” His unlimited Person has made millions of trees that are similar enough to all be Maples, yet each tree is different from his maple-mother, maple-sister, maple-brother. I’ll take God’s infinite variety over man’s mass production.

Love God abilities (if that is not too light a word).
