Jesus foretold his death and resurrection (Poem)

Jesus foretold his death and resurrection,
Which put his Apostles in much reflection.
He said this all more than twice,
The disciples found it tough not nice.

Peter didn’t want Jesus Christ our Lord to be crucified,
Yet that was how God in his Son would be glorified.
Spoke the Savior before his solemn sacrifice,
That Peter the future saint would deny him thrice.

When Peter eventually our Lord Jesus for fact deny,
He went out later and truly did bitterly cry.
Only Jesus the eternal king of the Jewish nation,
Could later give repentant Peter spiritual restoration.

Christ the Redeemer at the last supper spoke of his betrayer,
The vile Judas Iscariot who from the true path became a strayer.
Yet this apostate didn’t of his evil heart at all repent,
And by giving up on Jesus ensured where his own afterlife be spent.

And yet didn’t the Son of Man speak of his resurrection?
For God gave him the power to rise up again in divine affection.
Christ Jesus he had to pay everyone’s sin’s full price,
So that those who believe in him get forgiveness and paradise.

What Did Jesus Drink While Dying on the Cross?

Looking to God

I always found it a mystery to read in the bible how Jesus refused to drink wine before the Romans nailed him to the cross. Even more of a mystery to me was to understand Jesus’ intentions when he asked for something to quench his thirst, and he drank sour wine while suffering the torture of the crucifixion.

So why would Jesus refuse one drink and not the other?

Jesus refuses to drink.

The gospel of Mark describes what Jesus had to endure, “And they brought him to the place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull). And they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it. And they crucified him and divided his garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide what each should take” (Mark 15:22-24 ESV throughout).

According to ancient Hebrew custom based on Proverbs 31:6-7, honorable women of…

Relax in the Lord Jesus

Relax in the Lord Jesus,
For he’s the one who sees us.
Cast unto him your burdens and cares,
Be not worried by the world’s dares.

To receive God’s grace do what is just,
Put your faith in the Lord and him do trust.
Never be anxious nor too much you weep,
The Lord feeds the birds who neither sow or reap.

Be not anxious at all for tomorrow,
Surrender to Christ your trouble and sorrow.
Do not worry about what you’ll eat or drink,
Keep first God’s kingdom and his righteousness in all you think.

Fear not the future nor shifting sands,
God has it all covered in his holy hands.
Rest secure in his great love,
As you’re blessed by God from above.

Praying alone

Sometimes in life you are in that zone,
Where you must be willing to pray alone.
These are times where your responsibility is personal,
When you focus on God for his grace inspirational.

Don’t be shy then at all when you pray alone,
For by prayers individuals have darkness overthrown.
What matters is your solemn faith,
Don’t let it dim on day eight.

Christ Jesus prayed in solitude,
Unto God who gave him fortitude.
The prophets of God prayed on their own,
And God’s wisdom to them was shown.

You might like times you pray together,
But be content if you get lonely weather.
O believer get not sad if you pray alone,
For Christ intercedes for you at God’s Throne.

 

Deliver me O Lord Jesus

Deliver me O Lord Jesus for sure,
That from the world I remain pure.
For in your name all sins and demons I reject,
While your Gospel and Cross I embrace and accept.

Give me your salvation and healing,
And take from each ill feeling.
Save me O Christ from the terror of the night,
And all vile things causing fright.

Send forth your angels holy and wise,
To protect me from evil which I despise.
Save me O Lord from all lying voices,
For in you my soul rejoices.

When I rest let me be safe and secure,
That I awaken to praise you for sure.
By your name Jesus, I rebuke my curses all,
Let none of them against me stand tall.

I pray that all evil plans and divination against me get caught,
And also that every spell directed towards me be brought to nought.
Cause O Lord Jesus that my accusers are made to be in silence,
And by God’s Spirit I be saved from all violence.

Read the Gospel

Read the Gospel and it believe,
Lest the Devil does deceive.
Read the Gospel prayerfully,
That you serve God cheerfully.

Read the Gospel with relish,
Don’t be like those who perish.
Read the Gospel to get wise,
That things infernal you despise.

Read the Gospel to grow,
And all foolishness to throw.
Read the Gospel to abide,
And in God’s will reside.

Read the Gospel to act,
That you do right in fact.
Read the Gospel to meditate,
That you in truth Christ imitate.

Voices of right and wrong

There are voices either right or wrong,
Which can turn you weak or make strong.
Acting upon any of them for long,
Clearly shows to whom you belong.

But remember for every holy vision,
You can expect God’s provision.
While in trances vile, unclear or blurry,
You can expect it uninspired and weary.

Voices at times may guide or may provoke,
In such cases always good action invoke.
Not all voices are to be trusted,
Some could be like needles rusted.

The worlds voices may seem natural,
Even glamorous, rational or cultural.
Then ask if the voices are right,
Is it worth truly your soul and might?

Those who know Christ also know his voice,
If you are familiar with his Word do rejoice.
Listen not to any lustful or rebellious sprite,
Instead focus on the Gospel all light.

All heaven declares (with lyrics) – Martin Ball (Worship Video)

Lyrics:

Verse 1
All heaven declares
The glory of the risen Lord
Who can compare with
The beauty of the Lord?

Chorus 1
Forever He will be
The Lamb upon the throne
I gladly bow the knee
And worship Him alone.

Verse 2
I will proclaim
The glory of the risen Lord
Who once was slain
To reconcile man to God.

Chorus 2
Forever You will be
The Lamb upon the throne
I gladly bow the knee
And worship You alone

A Disciple Of Christ

A disciple of Christ in the Gospel does believe,
No matter whatever comes to deceive.
The disciple the Word of God studies,
And for good works readies.

Such a disciple is sincere and humble,
And doesn’t at God ever grumble.
The disciple doesn’t bother for wealth,
But has focus on spiritual health.

A disciple of Christ helps the poor and needy,
And preaches to all, even the greedy.
The disciple truly and earnestly will pray,
Unto God so oneself into temptation doesn’t stray.

A disciple of Christ believes God exists,
All vain philosophies he resists.
The disciple shares the Holy Spirit’s fire,
To all those who for salvation desire.

A disciple of Christ seeks things of heaven,
But avoids all hypocritical leaven.
The disciple has fellowship with other disciples,
Eagerly awaiting the Lord’s arrival.
