New Eden With a trumpet’s blast Angelic wings will beat To agitate, despoil the air Their voices shout It will come about With lightning’s speed This new Eden Glorious, magnificent Will descend The old order will Completely end New heavens, new earth, A new Jerusalem My feet will trod Upon a newborn sod New city with streets Of fine-spun gold No more will man To sin be sold On street corners so cheaply Everything seen now Is only shadow, temporary Probably, Out of necessity All man’s creations Will be done away with So God’s New Earth, New Heavens At last may begin Joy, peace, love Of these things There will be no end Eternal God will reign Death, tears, pain Will all be gone Praise to God, Christ Will be forever’s song So do not miss Reunion with Your Creator Do not deny His Touch, His infinity’s kiss Take His hand now So you and I may stay, Live in Glory’s new day, Together, Forever!!
Eden (save it or lose it) Clouds swirl The ethers twirl in moving thick clouds obscuring regions below until at last pierced by sun’s arrows to show Eden, perfection’s newest glow a paradise’s home Man never meant to roam lives in perfect peace with all Until he turns his back on his Lord’s call, his name, creation & life And through that one act brings forth pain, death & strife for the first time darkness permeates the garden but wait, wait there comes a second call to revive us from the blackest pit of our slippery, plunging fall Jesus Christ, that light on the cross a perfect lamb sent, holds out a hand to save every woman, every man we must play our part let him have our complete heart to generate a new start for ourselves and this planet’s life we all have our own part to play if in our own days we want to help receate Utopia our very selves to save & rejoin ourselves back to God It is Your choice never will be forced Live totally for & with God or Be swallowed by the darkness where never will you rest You will be enslaved, forced into that violent machine, that dark team Of satan’s demolition service and help shred Utopia into pieces
This a repeat of a blog I have posted before on my site, but this experience was so dramatic I feel I should share it once again. I know I will never forget it.
For years now, I guess about 7 or 8, I have been wanting to talk about, tell, something that happened to me one night. I have only told family members about it since I’m not very good at standing up and talking in front of people or telling things to people. I guess I was afraid they wouldn’t believe me.
I have sleep apnea. I don’t know if you know what that is, but that’s where when you lay down on your back to sleep the muscles that hold up your soft palette at the back of your throat relax so much that the palette itself collapses downward and completely closes your airway. In other words, you stop breathing. It is dangerous and can kill you. I do not think I could sleep with one of the breathing machines they use so I sleep with the head of my bed raised and try to stay on my sides.
However, one night I went to sleep and somehow must have gotten off my side and into a position that was not safe. I woke up suddenly, fully awake and conscious, and was in a different place.
I remember feeling a slight tinge of fear but was mostly confused, thinking where am I?? All around me was nothing but deep blackness until suddenly I could see this spiral of beautiful, puffy white clouds spiraling off into the distance. I did not want to look at the far distant end of the spiral because I had this sudden knowledge that if I looked at it, there would be no going back. Somehow I just knew that. Don’t know how, but I just did, but I was not given a choice. I had to look at the end of the spiral, and so I did.
Next, let me say that I had no physical sensation at all. I was fully conscious, but there were no physical sensations. I had no awareness of a body.
To get back to where I was, as soon as I looked at the end of the spiral of clouds, I was in the other place, but this one was different. This beautiful, beautiful light was everywhere. It glistened and shone like nothing I have ever seen. But the light was alive. There was an intelligence or presence inside the light. Like nothing I have ever experienced.
It was so bright it almost hurt to look at it and the colors of the rainbow were moving through it constantly. It was so bright that I turned to look away, but again, I was not given a choice. I had to look at the light so I did.
When I turned to look at it again, suddenly it felt like somebody had taken me and thrown me as hard as they could up against a brick wall. There was this really hard boom, and I was back inside my body. Totally awake but back inside of my body going “What just happened to me?”
I laid there for a few minutes, thinking about what I had just seen and experienced. I moved around a little trying to get my bearings back and then decided the only thing it could have been was for a few minutes or less, because it happened so quickly, so very quickly, is I think I died! It is the only explanation I can think of.
I believe for a very few brief seconds, I was allowed to see some of the glory of the Living God. The light was beautiful beyond words. I wish everyone could have seen it. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.
The only reason I wanted to tell this is I hope it will reassure everyone that there really is life after death, and that God is more beautiful than any of my weak human words could ever express.
I pray that the living God Himself will bless your day and your whole life and that you can get to know Him better. He really does love you profoundly, passionately and completely. God Bless You.
In the Beginning Chronicle II A loud voice boomed “What is that I hear” Trembling on a marble step Leading to the throne A loyal angel replied Almost with a groan, “It is not good news I fear Your Grace.” “Tell me.” The answer came, “We have A problem, A never seen before rebellion. Coming from your favored one, The leader of all angels.” “Leave me. I will discuss this With my Son.” So, in heaven it was decided This would not be abided Creation does not tell its Creator how to create or lead. For the very first time In all of infinity Expulsion from this place Was decided by The Holy Trinity satan would have to be removed from the presence of God’s face. But he did not go quietly The battle for God’s throne Was waged with ferocity As they refused God to still praise Swords were raised And some were slain By flinging them into Dark dungeons This once bright Glorious angel, Their leader, now was dark God’s love, light Mercy & grace Had flown from his heart Empty was he now Filled only with an all-consuming Lust for God’s crown So, in sorrow, God had to retaliate satan was flung out Of heaven’s gates Thrown to earth to roam Forever more alone Never to enter again His once heavenly home As for his followers Well, They are held in a kind Of hell In dark prisons They are chained Awaiting that great day Of the Lord When all will be judged Who have rebelled Against God’s name It is so sad, it is a shame That their rightful place In glory They never will be able To reclaim.

Wet and swampy
Unfit for much
Suited to live
Among the muck
It does not matter
How rich, how high
You think you live
I tell you no lie
Earth as it is now
Is that low country,
This level of existence
We now pass thru
This lower level of life
This body even with resistance
Still crumples and dies
A chasm we cannot cross
Except thru death
Separates us temporarily
From the highlands
In a clearer air there
Will we breathe
God’s higher land
calls our name
Do not turn a deaf ear
Until you can no longer hear
Its gracious call
His promises will sound
as always, Faithful
Never run us aground
Reach for the higher path
And walk in that
purer, more noble land
