Pentecostal Fire

Pentecostal Fire

Disciples, huddled
In an upper room
Shaking in their boots
Trying to dispel the gloom
Of your death
Feeling only fear’s failure was left

Until,
A Pentecostal fire
Blazed across their heads
By tongues of living fire
Were they to be led

To stop the shaking, quaking
& rise up
Boldly speak
Those first words of hope
To preach
And loudly proclaim
In many tongues
The life, the power
Of God’s only RISEN SON!

Warning, Warning!

Warning, Warning! 

Warning, warning
Read all about it
Warning, warning
Voices raise to shout it

The great reckoning
Is coming
For us,
Out
the time is running

Soon will we all
Peoples be allowed
God’s face & presence
No longer will be disavowed

All to be judged
In His great presence
Investigating each life’s essence
In His Book it is assured
No one left not adjured
To be brought before His throne!!

Revelation 20:11-13 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done.

Before

Before


Before all time and space
There was a glorious face
Full of only grace
Love for all He surveyed
Having always the last say
Over everything

But,
His goodness, beauty 
So overwhelming
So always flowing
Over and upward welling
He wished to share it
With others

So the Three got together
Made planets spin
Stars shine
But decided they had rather
Make some someones

A planetary home was made
The darkest of night 
Became a day
Animals, all creatures 
Brought into His sight
Then
His allowed His man to stand upright

He felt such joy
In this glorious child
He had truly let
His imagination run wild
Crowned us at last
With one glorious smile!

Shout for joy
All the earth
At the glory 
Of this first birth
But never fear,
He will remove
For a second time all tears

As once again,
The battle against 
Darkness He will win
Return us,
Back home
If we choose
Remember God will
Never ever lose!!

The Race

The Race

It matters not how 
The race begins
It matters only how
The race will end

From the very start
There will be times
That may truly
Almost stop your heart

But never fear
The Scriptures say
There is for race-winners
A much more glorious
Day!

As you step across the 
Finish line
Through death’s portals
Or when God ends for all time
satan, sin, pain, evil’s darkness

The greatest prize you will win
You will be allowed forever to trace
Looking into that Most Beautiful Face
The One who loves you the most
All will be allowed to at last boast
In that cross, that shed blood
Which unleashed into infinity
His Passionate & Incomprehensible
UNENDING LOVE!

 REVIVAL

Something needs to be
Revived
If it has 
Fallen asleep or
Died

Lulled into languor
Or is it a stupor
Apathy maybe
It will take more
Time to fully see

In more of the wealthier
Countries
There is less bending
Of the knee
Faith in a Christ appears
To be dying

More & more we pursue
Earth’s pleasure 
To receive a momentary bliss
Ah, the sensation
Of an entertainment’s kiss

Driving forces beyond measure
Revealing more & more
Where are our heart’s true treasures
As perhaps pure faith languishes
More & more numbers show
It’s almost vanishing

Is there hope for it to
Be reviving
For this every true believer
Should be sighing
Return to me, I will return to you
Words of God lying 
Available still to be reviewed
In plain black ink on a page 

So let’s begin the work
It will not happen by itself
Holy Spirit let us pray
That once again you will
Rule all our nights & days
Lord Jesus, Holy God
It is only through your power
& your blood that any are ever saved!!
