Renewal’s Perfection

Renewal’s Perfection

A lamb, slain
Bloodied by men
Lost in imperfection.
Once encased in
Flesh,
Now living in power

Desiring lusting
After us, humans,
The lost.
On a cruel hill
Of pain
Absorbed our darkness

Into Himself.

Abolished, destroyed
Hell’s hold
Over man forever
With

Grace, Mercy, Forgiveness.

The Father’s Power
On display in a weak,
Human-like face
Showing the glory of
True Grace.

He is coming back again
For all time and finally
recreating a dying, lost
World, sin-soaked

He will
Absorb
All our evil, darkness
And give us and this
Earth
His Blazing light
And living perfection.

We rest in the hands of the Living God, not Covid-19. Pray and Praise God. He says in Malachi Return to me and I will return to You. Praise God!!

No More Death

artforlust

No More Death
(no such thing)

On a hill, long long ago,
A poor man
Died
Once for all
Abolishing death for all

If you choose HIM

Carrying Eternity within
Himself
He allowed us to destroy
His earthly body

In order to recreate
A perfect body
A new man
Living forever in
Glory

Resurrected to wait
To return us
And all nature
To

Its original glory

The rocks, trees
Even grass
Will sing a
New song
No more death,
Decay

All will live
Every plant, human
Animal
In perfection’s glory
And new obedience,
To Worship!!

Lust!

artforlust

Lust!

Lust, to
Intensely Desire
Is your name
To create discord,
Discontent
Is your deceitful game.

To make us want
Pleasures
We do not have
For this type of
Wound there is
No magical salve.

Deep it may run
Abscess & ache
nothing on
our green planet heals
This pain no matter
How much you may partake

Of fulfilling your
Lusts
Of each and
Every kind
Its appetite just increases
With indulgences & time.

Worldly lusts leave
One empty, so unstill
Unsatisfied
Until you seek first a higher
Lust that always will fill
Your center’s deepest needs.

We constantly are
Trying to tame
This unquiet restless ache
That only one lust
Can soothe & never
your weary heart break.

A heavenly lust
For a Creator/Father
Endlessly seeking
Each son and daughter
Wandering the earth
To restore to His safekeeping

Each lonely child
Each wounded soul.
His eternal goal
To bring you peace
Safely into the realm of
His Loving Arms
And Heavenly fold.

Joy

joyart

Joy
(For the Joy set before Him)

Joy transcendent
Above our planet’s face
Transfixed it rises
Reaching upper space
Seeking its one true home.

Coming from a
Higher source
It is not satisfied
Until it has finished,
Run its committed course.

Promised in angel’s
Whispers
Sought by ancient
Prophets’ words
Looking to occur

In whomever will
Take the time
Learn to listen to
Heaven’s wishes
And smallest sighs.

A Savior exposed your
Greatest power
Enduring a cruel cross
To show your face
In his darkest hour

For your sake he
Endured a painful death
Making sure not one,
No single child
Would ever be left

Not seeing, not knowing
Your saving Grace.
For you, Joy, He
Remained on a path
of a criminal’s shame
yet transcending still
toward His Father’s Face.

Problem Solved

God-the-Father-Jehovah#2

 

God is the answer to all of our earth’s problems. He made it, He controls it, and He loves it and you more than anyone else will ever love it or you. Praise God! But you have to return the favor.

Malachi 3:7-12  Ever since the time of your ancestors you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you,” says the LORD Almighty.

But you ask, “How are we to return?”

“Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me.”

But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’

In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse —– your whole nation —— because you are robbing me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the LORD Almighty. “Then all the nations will call you blessed for yours will be a delightful land,” says the LORD Almighty.

Tithes aren’t always money or in Israel’s case food. Sometimes it is just the tithe of time, energy or just plain respect and reverence.

Malachi 2:17 You have wearied the Lord with your words.

“How have we wearied him?” you ask.

By saying, “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the LORD, and he is pleased with them.”

Malachi 3:1-3 “I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple.

But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver.

Malachi 3:5 So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the Lord Almighty.

God loves us so passionately, profoundly and deeply He was willing to put His only precious Son through a tortuous death so we could live with Him in infinity’s Paradise forever.

Try to stay safe and have a blessed day. Praise God!!

 

 

Breathe

Breathe

Breathe
In and Out
of This Spirit,
Ancient and Holy

Exists, giving You
Breath.
Owning each heartbeat,
Each sigh,
Coming, giving you Life.

Purifying, replenishing,
a Holy Fire burning,
Desiring
to live within
Us.

God desires for His Holy Spirit to live within us as ‘a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance’ and to help us become His new creation, ‘the old is passed away’. Praise God!!

Pure Love

supernova5

 

The love of the God-head—God the Father, God the Son Jesus and God the Holy Spirit— is overwhelming. They are the only source of all the good things in life that most people deep within themselves really desire. The fruits of His Spirit are listed in Galatians 5:22-23 ‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law’. In a nutshell, this is God.

That is what made our rebellion in the garden so terrible and horrific. We rebelled against someone so beautiful, wonderful, magnanimous and gracious that it is hard for us to comprehend because we do not come close to His goodness and beauty. We rebelled against pure, unadulterated, unblemished Perfect Love. His love is so perfect that the Creator of Heaven and Earth, let Himself be hung on a cruel, torturous Roman cross instead of inflicting the torment on us. He died for every human being that has ever existed so we could be forgiven for our rebellion. That is His Amazing Grace!

Won’t you accept His perfect love today and come back into the original peace and harmony we at one time had in that garden. He is ceaselessly looking for you. May you have a blessed day. Praise God!!

 

Power

I had a very terrible start in life. An orphan from birth, I was shuffled between an orphanage and foster care. I have known lovelessness and having nothing in life, but somehow God found me. Even at a very early age, say 9 or 10, I was able to feel a presence in my life. They said I was a highly sensitive child. An elder at our last church said I seemed to be a very spiritually sensitive person. I’m thankful to God for staying so close to me as I never really felt loved or that I really fit in anywhere even after I was adopted.

He has at times given me dreams and visions or impressions which I have talked about on this blog site. I pray I could make God feel more real for you.

We have a small second story balcony off the front of our townhouse. It’s up so high you get a panoramic view of the sky and the clouds. I was out on it one day when I felt I could envision a flat platform made of only clouds with more leading up to it. At the top was a very tall angel dressed in a short white tunic and holding a massive golden spear in his hand. His face was beautiful but frightening to look at, resembling a human face but not quite like a human’s. It was beautiful but frightening to look at. The overall impression was one of extreme, extreme POWER.

I think in our American culture and even in a large number of our churches we have lost respect for God’s extreme power and sovereignty, lordship over us. God owns every atom, every molecule of our planet, every heartbeat and every breath taken down here. We have lost our reverence for his Kingship over us. He owns us. Whether we like it or not doesn’t matter. We own nothing but are just temporarily using His stuff.

Fortunately for us, He is perfect love and loves us enough to send His only Son, Jesus Christ, to take the punishment we deserved for our rebellion against Him. He overwhelmingly loves and adores us!

I pray you will have a very blessed day. Try to stay safe and may God bless you today with the knowledge of His extreme love and power over all events down here. Praise God!!

Valleys

Valleys (#2)

Down, down
We fell
Tumbling, falling
Refusing to heed,
Listen to
His Calling.

God encased in
Flesh
But only for a
Brief moment
For on His death
We were too intent

To listen to
His Words
Giving into evil’s
Dark voice,
Selfish desires, making
The wrong choice.

So, in that deep, black valley
We destroyed
God’s Shining Son
Oblivious, unaware
Of this, Heaven’s efforts
to rejoin us into One.

As His blood fell
To earth,
Beneath His cross
Satan danced in
Dark delight with
Screams of joyless mirth.

Thinking himself
The victor at last
at our final destruction
But once again
His mistake was
To forget his own past.

This Son’s body
Was raised again
to life in Glory
Rewriting, changing
Forever
Our not yet finished
Story.

So today, Christ’s followers
Still celebrate
A Glorious Golden cross
still shining its victory
over Satan’s dark valley
of defeat and total loss.
