Christ in You, a Poem

PDF Poem

 

We are convinced that a life without sin,

Comes from Christ’s Spirit living within. (1 John 3:9, Galatian 2:20)

We may look inside and we search without,

But we will find only self, lust, and doubt. (Jeremiah 17:9)

God sent His Son from Heaven to earth,

To make us anew, to bring second birth. (John 3:5, 16)

We are born again by His thoughts, His word.  

It’s like a pinch of leaven, or a seed of mustard. (Matthew 13:31-33, 1 Peter 1:23)

God sent His Son in the perfection of time,

Then His Son’s Spirit… a truth so sublime! (Galatians 4:4-6, Ephesians 3:17)

Now turn to Isaiah 40:13,

And find the Scripture Paul used to mean,

The mind of God—Romans 11:34,

As spirit is the mind… it’s not a […]

Acts 10 – Common or Unclean

PDF Notes

Acts 10:1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,

Acts 10:2 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.

      • The chapter starts out explaining about a Gentile.

Acts 10:3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.

Revelation’s Old Testament Feasts

(Revelation 1:9, 5)

On a barren island with no direction; a rover,

I saw perfect beauty in the Lord’s Passover…

(Revelation 1:16)

I’d heard it said that He’d been given for dead…

Then I realized, He was the Unleavened Bread!

(Revelation 1:18)

Stupendously shocked and near unbelief,

I saw the Lord risen as the true Wave Sheaf!

(Revelation 5:4-6)

I John, had believed that nearly all was lost…

When the Lord Almighty was fulfilling Pentecost!

(Revelation 7:9-12, 8:7)

With dizzying scenes I saw the saints triumphant!

Then I heard a sound, the voice of a trumpet!

(Revelation 10:10, 11:19)

I waited with nausea through a long postponement,

That lead to a day: it was the Day of Atonement!

(Revelation 21:1-5)

I long for […]

Live Out Thy Life Within Me!

Live out Thy life within me, O Jesus, King of kings!
Be Thou Thyself the Answer to all my questionings;
Live out Thy life within me, in all things have Thy way!
I, the transparent medium, Thy glory to display.

The temple has been yielded, and purified of sin,
Let Thy Shekinah glory now shine forth from within,
And all the earth keep silence, the body henceforth be
Thy silent, gentle servant, moved only as by Thee.

Its members every moment held subject to Thy call,
Ready to have Thee use them, or not be used at all,
Held without restless longing, or strain, or stress, or fret,
Or chafings at Thy dealings, or thoughts of vain regret.

But restful, calm and pliant, from bend and bias free,
Awaiting Thy decision, when Thou hast need of me.
Live out Thy life within me, O Jesus, King of kings!
Be Thou the glorious answer to all my questionings.

Revelation 4 thru 6 in Verse

Revelation 4 thru 6 in Verse:

Long ago on a bright blue stone,
sat the King of glory upon His throne.

Rainbow colors were about His face.
Darkness or evil? Not even a trace.

His servants did sing with joy, love, and fullness,
He astounded creation with all of His goodness.

He looked for One who could open the book—
His voice roared like thunder! The universe shook!

Not ONE? Nowhere? So who could it be?
I’ve looked above and below, but none could I see!

I broke, I fell, I cried and I wept,
when a Lion—a Lamb! Exceptional! Adept!

He stood up in lowliness, beauty and power,
with strength in His eyes, from whom evil did cower.

He reached with a hand, torn with a hole,
and took from the throne the most marvelous scroll,

Sealed with gems, jewels and glittering gold!
The Law of love He’s meant to uphold!

So Angels bore witness of His incredible journey,
through education in strife […]
