 Set Apart
 We were meant
 To be set apart
 I believe this
 Deeply in my heart
 Different we
 Should strive
 to be
 So all the world 
 May see
 Our Leader
 His purity
 To this we 
Should run
 As we struggle 
 To shun
 The world
 Sure, we have 
 To live in it
 Love it for sure
 We are not to
 Be of it
 We’re meant
 To live
 In a way much 
 More pure
 Not as greedy,
 Sexually immoral,
 These things
 We should
 Not be 
 His holy love
 More giving
 The world
 In Us 
 Should see
 A Holy Bride
 He longs for us
to be
 As we wait on
 Bended knees
 Longing to please
 Only Him
 Let us win
 This race
 As we let go
 Of every trace
 Of ourselves
 Let us dare
 To be different
 Stand out
 Give a holy shout
 Christ’s Name
 It is the same
 Yesterday, Today
 For His return will
 All death, pain,
 & every sorrow

Alpha & Omega

 The Alpha and the Omega

 The Alpha 
 The Omega
 The beginning
 And the end
 To my ears
 It does lend
 A beautiful sound,
 A Melody
 It sang among 
 The stars
 Tinkled around
 The sun’s face
 Following the
 Road of grace
 It raced
 Upward, higher 
 Climbing the Stairway
 To Paradise, 
 that Ecstasy, Bliss
 it is to receive from 
 His lips
 one word, one kiss
 of His Perfection
 So it was
 Before all space 
 And time began
 As we relate it
 Before any
 Water, air or land
 Out of three great hearts
 Was formed a
 Great and mighty plan
 Falling from the hands
 Of three,
 Father, Son, Spirit
 To create another
 With whom to share 
 The love, peace
 Kindness goodness
 Flowing around
 Their joy-filled dance
 So, with only
 One single glance
 They fulfilled the plan
 And created their man
 To live below
 On a shining green world
 Within the sun’s glow
 And their eyes’ love
 Joining in the wonder
 Of their existence
 It is the same today
 As from our first day
 On this our home,
 A shining ball,
 Always there was 
 A beginning and 
 There will be an end
 To what is now seen
 We will return to 
 The original plan,
 Our purpose,
 And live in glory
 Within their eyes’ gleam

Revelation 21:6-8 He said to me: It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars — they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

Smear Campaign

 Smear Campaign
 A smear campaign,
 A dark, thick smoky
 From eons ago
 From the beginning
 Hoping it would be 
 Against Heaven’s 
 Against the Holy
 At first this cloud
 Merely a slight stench
 There is a mighty
 Fist clenched
 Around the throats
 Of man
 An evil hand
 Works against the sons,
 Daughters of man
 Grown stronger
 Only because we
 Have lingered
 To listen to its voice
 At its gates longer
 Than we should
 Telling us we 
 Are only physical
 Only the natural
 This naturalism
 Fighting to form
 A schism
 Between man
 And His Creator
 It’s goal 
 Is to destroy
 All efforts
 To acknowledge
 Man has
 a soul
 Eternal, unending
 To Smear, slander
 God’s holy family
 Point out its flaws
 Of which it has many
 Still under Christ’s hand
 It struggles forward
 At His command
 To love His world
 So the great destroyer
 Uses our vices, 
 To draw man in
 To this ancient battle
 satan knows
 he cannot win
 destroy everything
 a worldwide campaign
 in a sense
 using our worldly
 those great two
 Money, Power
 as the world
 spins toward
 a darker hour
 powers that be
 are blinded
 cannot see
 they are being used
 & very abused
 to try to bring about 
 a kingdom’s 
 As I glance upward
 To the skies
 Using our greatest weapon
 A prayer begins
 Within my heart I cry
 As the battle around me

Still Walking

 Still Walking
 The world
 Is dead
 But up &
 Still walking
 They sound
 But. . .
 Without Christ
 God, their Father
 Anyone like
 Is dead
 In their heads,
 Denying their 
 They just don’t know it.
 So many living
 Without Christ
 So spiritually, totally
 So Sad
 But, with that said,
 should we not warn
 To keep them 
 The outer darkness,
 Weeping, wailing
 Gnashing of teeth
 Worms that never 
 Fire that is never
 More than just
 These things
 Are described
 Christ Himself,
 Not to be denied
 Said out of love
 For Us
 It is our 
 To Warn
 Not with a tongue
 So glib
 But with Loving Hearts
 & Words
 As Christ
 Himself Did
 Out of 
 His Great Love
 For Us
 He warned
 As you would
 Warn any child
 Its hand to keep, 
 Not to seek
 That deadly fire
 & its
 Unspeakable Pain. 

Matt. 13:49 -50 This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the blazing furnace where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mark 9:47-49 And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell where,

the worms that eat them do not die

and the fire is not quenched

Everyone will be salted with fire.

Isaiah 66:24 And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.”


 Most stand calling
 Not realizing they do
 What is it they Desire?
 They need You,
 Lord, God
 The passion, fire
 Of your heart
 For them!
 That is the answer 
 We all need.
 In blindness & 
 Stumbling, fumbling
 Is this not what
 We all seek?
 Seeking joy, peace, 
 We wander, fight
 For our share
 Of this earth
 When all true life
 Flows freely from above.
 We were made to live
 From the very start
 This is the purpose,
 For which we were 
 In only this, 
 Are all needs sated
 To live daily
 In contentment
 More Fulfilled
 Try as much as you
 To live inside
 His Will
 His Intellect, 
 His purposes
 Your old man
 That self
 Must be killed
 To let Him have
 His way
 Over you
 His sway
 So you may say,
 Not I but Christ
 That liveth in me.
 But because we turn
 Harden our hearts,
 Without our true calling
 We endlessly wander
 Thru all of life
 Unsatisfied, discontent
 & falling
