Miracle

What would cause
A god
Of any kind
Rich, wealthy
Most sublime

To step 
From His perfection’s
Heaven 
To literally
Slum
With us?

This was no impulse
Done with intent
A driven purpose
Such a love
Beyond robust!
So this is the miracle
For us!

That one so 
Wondrous
Of beauty,
Power
Would step 
Down 
To save us
From a most dreadful
Hour 

For without this
Miracle
Only a place most
Terrible
Awaited

So do not 
Hesitate
Accept what
Christ
Longs to give
A better 
Fate 

Life 
With His 
Beauty
Into
Infinity!

Rushes

Life rushes
Sometimes it
Even crushes
Until hearts stop
Breathing ceases
& we see,
Are released
From our dulled shell

To another place
Us You will send
Even as we
Our bodies lend
Back to the dust

We need to prepare
So our spirits
May we share
With Yours
At last
To enjoy
Rejoice

Infinity
Only a beginning
Of pure joy
So I implore
I ask
Do not let this
Forever pass
Your spirit by!

A Savior

A Savior

S
eems more & more every day
Crazy holds ever growing, greater sway
Over many beautiful lands

A
s evil seems to grow
Larger & larger it shows
Its ugly, abnormal face

V
oraciously does it run
From setting sun to sun
It strains to destroy each life

I
ncreasing in its vehemence
I would be much remiss
If I did not mention this

O
nly Christ can save our world
This is not a foolish outburst
Of only random, errant words

R
evealing the truth is His follower’s job
So many may not be left in the dark to sob
As He returns to save as many as He may
Restoring to His purer, much brighter day!

Hard Words

Hard Words

Hard words fill the air
Rotating, flipping everywhere
But 
Did you know
In an ancient Holy Book
If you dare to take a look
Are also found hard words

Such as,
In a great Revelation
‘niether cold nor hot’
‘I am about to spit 
You out of my mouth’
Hard to hear
But spoken in a prophet’s ear

We must take up that cross,
Whatever form of pain
It takes,
And follow Him
If not,
He says we’re not worthy
Of Him
His salvation no one can win
Without a struggle
Against a lost world’s sin

We are His salt
But if we lose His Spirit’s flavor 
No longer us will He exalt
But be dropped
Ground into earth’s dust
No longer us will He adopt
To be His very own

We must follow His commands
Rebuking the sin 
Found lingering within
Each man’s hands
Without obedience
Like the rest
We too will be lost
Left among a darkness
So totally distraught

Today God’s people need to 
Follow His voice
Make, even if it is,
A difficult choice
Stay true to His words spoken
Don’t throw only a slight token
Of your lukewarm affection

Commit to the Spirit’s fire
As it comes to lift you higher
Than a mere man’s imagination
Within his small soul can begin
to ever, ever comprehend!

Revelation 3:14-16 These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness of, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were either one or the other! So because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Matthew 10: 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

Matthew 5:13 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

Hacks

Hacks

Those spiritual hacks
Can catch you
Will stab you in the back
So be most careful

Coming from a place of darkness
Bringing only strife, extreme pain
Arising from a satan’s fury
Coming sometimes in ones
Or often groups, in a great flurry
By winds of evil sent
To destroy, maim, 
Their only intent

But
A power stronger
More intense
Can dissolve, destroy
Within only one word
A Holy Name
Always it is one
The same
JESUS

Demons have no strength
By God’s Holy Hands
Will be forever rent
None of hell’s dark things
Will ever overcome
As saints stand & out loud sing
His Name
His Praise
In this,
His Forever Of Days!

His Power Over Darkness

According to my adoption records I was a sensitive child. I once had an elder of a church say he thought I was a spiritually sensitive person. I know it has been a blessing in my life. I know in this world, especially in our very wealthy, money oriented culture that is so in love with ourselves, money, possessions, and pleasure, we have a tendency to deny or neglect the spiritual aspects of our lives. We are truly spirits only temporarily connected to our physical shell.

I have had several supernatural experiences, and what I guess I’m trying to lead up to is I have had three encounters with demons, very dark creatures.

The first happened many years ago when I was going through a very dark time in my life but trying to draw closer to Christ and God and the Holy Spirit. I woke up one night and a dark mass felt like it was laying on my chest. I was afraid and all I could think to do was say “In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, be gone.” It immediately was gone, left.

The second encounter was when I was on my first round of chemotherapy for my breast cancer. I was sleeping in an old recliner and suddenly woke up. I looked down and this dark person was laying on top of me. It looked up at me, smiled a perverted smile and asked, “Susie, what are you trying to do with this book.” I naturally was frightened but again said, “In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, be gone.” Within a heartbeat, it was gone. I was at the time working on a novel which I have finished which was about the useless divisions within our Christian churches or denominations we have created.

The third experience came about a year ago. I am still suffering fatigue from all the cancer treatments. One night I was awake, and a very dark man was in the room with me suddenly. I said, “In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, be gone.” He said to me, “No, it doesn’t work that way.” I immediately yelled for a second time, “Oh yes, it does. In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, be gone.” And he disappeared instantaneously.

Praise you Lord Jesus for the beauty of your face, your great and loving heart and also for your wonderful power and authority over everything in creation. Bless you Lord!! Thank you for your salvation from all of Satan’s schemes against us.
