The World Over

Man is amazed at how the waters underground and above ground make their way to the oceans. How God can put saltwater and fresh water together, but at the right place give fresh water and with the precise lay, rotation, and gravity there’s continual movement the water the earth even the oceans current.

Rivers flow
Route water taken
Winds may blow
Storms ragin’
Nothing hinder
Continual current
Onward to oceans render
The world over
Man may dam
Waters rolling wildly
Somewhere an overflow
God made this earth
Not uncle Sam
He may change mildly
When God speaks a stir
This world over
God’s Spirit as the waters
Satan’s winds ripple
Time of Christian slaughters
Those minds simple
Trying stop God’s Spirit
The world over
Those slaying God’s saints
Martyrs for God never forgotten
Godly Spirit God’s children
Now among heavenly ranks
God rules I’m tellin’
The world over
God’s Holy Spirit
Like the waters and rivers
Find the oceans mass
God’s Spirit, the hungry hear it
Place in some people’s soul last
Those skeptical better believe it
His Spirit is truth, reality, and more
And in control, the world over!!

He Restores: Devotion for Thursday August 7, 2014

Text: Joel 2:25 – So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust my great army which I sent among you (New King James Version).

Indeed those wasted years God shall restore to us. Do you know God can give you enough grace that He will crowd into the remaining days of your life much service/blessings that will recompense for those wasted years we mourn in humble penitence? Oh, if one had repented when he was young, he would have done this or that. You may have viewed those years in the hospital, no work, no spouse, etc. as wasted years. But it is not so.

However, the good news here is that we should not count them as wasted. If you have been mindful, you will know that those years, God was teaching you some lessons for your good. The good news is that God will restore everything the locust has eaten. The locust of backsliding, no job, bareness, sickness, no prospective spouse, no food to eat, etc, He has taken away. Never mind all you have passed through, they will turn out to be testimonies for you, which people will learn from and change. God has paid you back.

Food for Thought: Greatness does not come from contemplating about your past.

Prayer Points:

1) Thank and worship God of Restoration.

2) Ask God to restore all you have lost.

3) Bind every form of ‘locust’ eating your family’s health, income, etc.

4) Cover all you have with the blood of Jesus to make it bitter for the locust.

Who Can Describe The Love of God

The love of God, deeper than the oceans, more vast than the universe, more complex than all the theories, minds of geniuses, and all the books written and those to be written. Who can describe the love of God? …only God through His Spirit words unspoken!!

Who Can Describe The Love of God?

 

Who can tell the feeling
Who can accurately say of the change
Emotions immersed in a sea of love
Some feeling inside so good but strange
Because it is at emnity with this world

Who can with words lacking explain
Tears of rejoicing of a newness inside
As if the skies more blue, clouds so near
The cleansing waters His Spirit like rain
Unless you dip into His love, never be clear!

You ask me to describe something heavenly
The love of God to earthly minds
That even myself feeling, no words revealing
Something so miraculously must be felt directly
It’s not technology, evolutionary, or of science

But it’s worth living for and worth dying for!
It explains Christians this world over, harms way
God’s Spirit inside, their soul rejoice, flesh torn
Tears of pain, screams of torment, but gain
Describe the love of God? …it just can’t be done!!

Covenant of Peace: Devotion for Friday August 1

God desires the best for us. We can see this in this devotion.

Covenant of Peace: Devotion for Friday August 1, 2014

 

Text: Ezekiel 37:26 – Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them. I will establish them and multiply them and I will set my sanctuary in their midst forevermore (New King James Version).

There are four different promises for us in Scriptural reading for today.

1) God will make a covenant of peace with us. Covenant is a promise to somebody or a legal agreement. As used here, it is both a promise and legal agreement. God promised peace on the condition that they walk in God’s judgment and observe His statues (Ezekiel 36:24). Do you desire peace? Then make Jesus your Lord and Saviour, and always walk in God’s judgment.

2) God promises to establish us. New Living Translation says, “I will give them their land”. The promise God makes here is that He will restore our Eden, a place of peace, flowing with milk and honey. This land is a place of peace and tranquillity.

3) God promise that He will multiply us. God multiplies. He does not only add but multiplies. This He told Adam in Genesis 1:28. Go through the bible and you will find out this truth about God. When we observe His laws it will be ours. May He multiply you and all yours in all ramifications in Jesus name.

Ask, Seek, and Knock (Ask): Devotion for Saturday August 2, 2014 »

4) God’s promising of having His sanctuary with us. This means that He will dwell in our hearts by the power of the Holy Spirit. If then, God is with you and for you, who will be against you? He will dwell with you this month when you live for Him. We wish you a happy new month.

Food for Thought: Have you entered into these covenants with God?

Prayer Point:

1) Thank God, for He is ever faithful to His promises.

2) Pray that these promises will be yours.

3) Bind every covenant working against your peace.

Thoughts on Definitions of Marriage

 

Would it be love me
And I’ll love you too
Is the definition marriage
One gives love, cherish
The other a step, leverage
Is marriage vows to be reverenced?
Or empty promises soon forgotten
Two people wedded, then careless
Memories tainted love rotten
Together one house, but not home
Children out of lust
So adequate love not prone
Lives of only desires turned disgust
Where is till death do us part?
Two hearts and flesh made one
Where is give and take
Or now is it sift and break
Little work at marriage, both done
Easy way out, nothing at stake
Children not counted
This split of not much more
Dress, tuxedo, and rings
Hoops and ha’s crowd roar
Lazy kiss, someone sings
Marriage left without definition
Vows ..promises easily broke
The holiness, sacredness of marriage
Fire neither care to stoke
Finally society a place
Marriage holds little definition
Few drinks, dance, and a cake
No cares or worries about fruition
Marriage should always be realized
A holy union sanctioned by God?
Till death do us part, words cry
Solemn oath, flesh of my flesh
Blood of my blood, this definition
Vows sacred before God two vest
Love more than desires
Home where love for each other
Only second to love for God aspire
Care for each more than self
Careful we not exchange for another
Definition of marriage, only cheap outward shell!!

Blood Red, Blood Red

Poem-Blood-mobiles crossing our country each day, wanting people to give blood. Each day from wars, accidents, murders, and suicides seemingly many needless deaths, blood flows wasted!

 

Blood Red, Blood Red

Blood red, blood red
Color of life and death
Wars fought, blood shed
Lives given, blood red

When will this flow end?
Murders, wars, suicides
Blood red, blood red
Sometime, hatred mend!

Blood red, blood red
Daily, needless lives dead
Code red, code red
War and hatred, levels high

Why, peace not draw nigh?
Stop, needless flow of blood
In the blood, essence of life
Without blood, stench of death!

Different colors skin
All peoples blood red
Sacrifice of blood given
Love and peace from heaven

Blood red, blood red
Jesus blood was shed
Cross of Calvary He bled
Blood red, blood red
…His blood my stead!!

Revelations 14:20  (War)…“And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.”

1600 furlongs is 200 miles or 201.168 meters

River of Blood!

His Death

Life’s ebb and flow, but the stream that reaches the soul is that stream of blood from the Cross of Calvary. Never ending stream still flowing into the hearts of mankind today, redeeming, cleansing, tide of forgiveness…all because the death of Jesus and his shed blood. He’s…(Jesus) now risen and because Jesus lives…we can too…FOREVER!

His Death

Many had died on the cross
Nothing new, except this time
The very Son of God
Murderers, thieves, and the vile
Hung on crosses of wood before
Died a shameful humiliating death
This cross hung Jesus, mercies door
The incarnate Son of God
In obedience to the Father
And love for mankind, die He ought
Suffer monstrosities, pushed farther
Humiliation between two thieves
Laughed at, scorned, and mocked
Nails driven, pain hands and feet
Cross stood upward, blood downward
Blood begin to trickle, cross of wood
As a Broken water pipe, water comes forth
Broken body of Christ, blood misunderstood
This blood that trickled down, life’s source
Jesus mission this earth, sacrificial lamb
Main purpose his life, cross His course
Live in the flesh, God the Son as man
This was a way of redemption, salvation
His blood that ran down was the plan
From God above to man below, completion
Said, “If I be lifted up from the earth
Will draw all men unto me..signifying
What death He should die.” His birth
His life, all given to die, then rising
That cross, that man Jesus, that death
That blood that trickled from God to man
More precious than gold, He our stead
He our suffering, I’m glad His blood ran
Some of that blood for me and you, shed
The joy of salvation, the cleansing
His death, Jesus died, His blood bled
For all mankind their sins..remission
That blood from that cross still flows
Jesus risen, right hand of the Father
That wooden cross rotted, but this know
There was and there is no other
Sins forgiven, blood of Jesus..life’s stream flow!!
