The Woes of Sin



The Curse of God


The fount of sin in Lucifer’s heart

billows out plumes of darkness

 to angels fallen and hearts of man

———–

In all God’s creation, harmony disturbed

like ripples in a pond

from a stone just thrown,

Sin troubles waters, obscuring our views

————-

Waves of iniquity move like a storm

weakened souls and worn hearts in man.

————-

All those subject to its reign,

are at enmity with God

in armies arrayed.

————-

Angels darkened by it were stripped,

of their heavenly and glory ‘quipped.

Man in toils in dust and swallows its seed

his life removed from God’s sweet Eden

————-

The flames of Hell flicker higher

stoked by sin in its fire,

Woe to those falling to its depths.

 plagued by wages that bring death,

The Earth is drenched, alone in its blood

a Sodom of wealth and enticements a flood.

————-

It pollutes our eyes and defiles our ears,

our mouths blaspheme and curse the years.

————-

Who can plead aright for it’s cause?

Who can stand and its defend its laws?

————

But there is hope in one just name

A God, a Son, a holy one

He’s come to destroy His enemy

to give us truth and make us free

Rejoice, rejoice all that see

and take your hope to eternity.


The Judgement and Command


Thanks be to God, Jesus came to redeem us from sin and all its ways . . . 

Neither do I condemn thee:

go, and sin no more . . .

 . . . I am the light of the world:

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,

but shall have the light of life . . .

————-

Again Jesus said in His righteous judgment

Ye are from beneath;

I am from above:

ye are of this world;

I am not of this world. 

I said therefore unto you,

that ye shall die in your sins:

for if ye believe not that I am he,

ye shall die in your sins . . . 

————-

If ye continue in my word,

then are ye my disciples indeed; 

and ye shall know the truth,

and the truth shall make you free.


Jesus offers complete freedom; to eternally break the curse and bondage of sin. He said that we can be truly free from if we know (live) the truth. Partial freedom is not what He has to give. He wants all of you and you to have all of Him.

We must hunger and thirst after righteousness (Jesus) as a deer pants in order to drink of His life giving water.

He is our life’s blood. In Him is purity known. Nothing impure abides in Him, Abide in Him, and He will abide in you.

Whosoever believes on Him should not abide in darkness. If the word of God abides in you, then ye have overcome the wicked one.


I write unto you, fathers,

because ye have known him that is from the beginning.

I write unto you, young men,

because ye have overcome the wicked one.

I write unto you, little children,

because ye have known the Father. 

I have written unto you, fathers,

because ye have known him that is from the beginning.

I have written unto you, young men,

because ye are strong,

and the word of God abideth in you,

and ye have overcome the wicked one. 

Love not the world,

neither the things that are in the world.

If any man love the world,

the love of the Father is not in him.

~ 1 John 2:13-15


The life-long journey in this wilderness will one day come to an end.

Whosoever has sinned, and has any wickedness, must purify himself in the light of God; even so, this must be done today, and every day until this journey in the wilderness ends. Numbers 31:19-20

 


A Blessing of Peace and Hope


And the peace of God,

which passeth all understanding,

shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus . . .

 . . . For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink;

but righteousness, and peace,

and joy in the Holy Ghost . . .

 . . . Now the God of hope fill you

with all joy and peace in believing,

that ye may abound in hope,

through the power of the Holy Ghost . . .

. . . For God is not the author of confusion,

but of peace,

as in all churches of the saints . . .

. . . Be perfect, be of good comfort,

be of one mind, live in peace;

and the God of love and peace shall be with you . . .

. . . And as many as walk according to this rule,

peace be on them, and mercy,

and upon the Israel of God . . .

 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

Amen.
