Heaven –not a Location

Heaven – Not a Location
(A Someone)

Written in holy lines
Inside an ancient guide
Are words that tell,
Almost sigh
Of another place
Heaven

For all who follow Christ
Loyally
We are most assuredly promised
Joyfully
Of this certain reward

For after death
All will exist on a different
Level
To our carnal senses, I know,
It seems most
Incredible
But it is genuine

However, consider
If not for the presence of
Our Creator/Lord
Heaven would be just
Another place of pain, struggle
Not as is written, 
Our great Reward

To me, heaven is not
A location
But a SOMEONE
GOD
Is the kingdom of heaven
The pearl of great value
So when Christ said
The kingdom of heaven is
At hand or
In your midst
He meant: ‘Here I AM
Heaven walking among you’!!

PRAISE GOD. HE IS EVERYTHING!
LORD OF LORDS & KING OF KINGS!

He Will Honor Your Choice





He Will Honor Your Choice

In life we are all
Faced with choices
Good or bad
There are at all times
many voices
Whispering some
Others screaming
For your attention

With the great gift
Of free will
We are allowed to choose
But for a moment 
Be still
Think
About what you choose
What you accept or refuse

God holds out Himself
& eternal pleasures at
His right hand
But
Never ever will He force
Himself
On any man

He wants to be chosen
Desires your love
& love is a choice
So never will He force
Himself on you
So if Him & His love
Are what you refuse
He will honor that choice too

He desires your company
Forever
But He will let you go
If you turn your head
And tell him to return
never
He will honor that choice
Also

But He is the Lord & Master
Owner, Ruler of this world
And the heavens
So if it is what you choose
He will put you away 
From Himself
Give you eternity, infinity
Of His absence

He will let you have the 
Outer darkness
Of weeping, wailing
Gnashing of teeth
Never to be ceased
Worms that never die
Fires never quenched
And a total void of love!

Close to midnight on the same day, tires screech and a young girl screams as Father Tom McClarin plummets to his death from the roof of the cathedral where he serves. Both men’s destinies have been linked forever by their mutual belief in a mysterious document. What message could it hold to cause an unseen, powerful enemy to use everything within its influence to destroy its ancient text and anyone who has knowledge of it?

URGENCY!

Urgency

If a child is about 
To place a hand
In the fire
Will you not slap
It away
Talk to it
At least ‘No’
attempt to say

With those who ignore God
Isn’t it about the same
Ignoring the only name
That saves
From an even
Greater fire?

Of eternity’s loss
An even greater cost
Will be extracted
Than one burnt hand
They will spend infinity
In a far worse land
Desolate, dark, wretched
Bleak, gloomy
Colorless beyond all words

No second chances will 
Be given after death
None will be left
So shouldn’t there be
A greater sense of
Urgency
Importance
Not just for ourselves

But for every human
On the face of this planet
Only this one chance at
Life is granted
We belong to God, Christ
By them we are owned
So let us never grow
Too Apathetic
So we will never have to moan
‘If only’







Our Job

Our Job

If we people who say
We believe Jesus Christ
is Lord, Savior & God
We truly, truly believe
He is truth, life & the way
Then isn’t it our daily job
To say so

Out loud
Not just in a church building
Where we feel safe
But out in a dangerous world
Where we could face
Ridicule, embarrassment 
Maybe even death

Or perhaps alone to be left
With no one, rejected, 
Unloved, a most severe test
Of our loyalty
But this is what He said
To do
If each soul down here is
To have a chance to be
Renewed

We are to be His hands, feet
Face & voice
His Messengers
This can be a most difficult
Choice
For anyone, a sacrifice to make
This suffering we must take
If we truly, truly love Him

For without a sacrifice, there is no love!
So do not tell Jesus you love Him if
You are unwilling to sacrifice to stay loyal to Him

If you deny me before men, I will deny you before the Father! Matthew 10:33
