Twin deceptions

A man of God fell into temptation, he said he heard 2 messages from the enemy. Both of these were very crafty and destructive. The first message was “As long as you’re down here in sin, you might as well enjoy the fruit.” When he took this message to heart, he engaged in all kinds of sin that were never even his weaknesses. The second message was, “You can turn back to God tomorrow.” When he took that message to heart, tomorrow never came until a year later in jail.

Don’t be too busy to do good

Tougher than the Holy life

Compared to the Holy life the sinful life is tougher,
For the wages of sin in eternal life is rougher.
In the Holy life you’re rejected by worldly beings,
While in the sinful life you’re rejected by heavenly beings.

Sin may seem to have pleasure in its initial payoff,
But from eternal joy it’s simply much way off.
Now holiness makes less friends,
While sinfulness begets hopeless ends.

Some think of sin as useful tool,
Only to be caught up like a fool.
Beware that anger, hate and regret,
In Hell does the sinner get.

The undiscerned life one must avoid

The undiscerned life one must avoid,
For it may be of wisdom devoid.
People who wander through choices,
Better be vary of deceitful voices.

Examine your life in full or in parts,
Till all foolishness and timidity departs.
Ask of the Lord and Him by prayer approach,
For he gives wisdom generously without reproach.

For why must you keep blindly shopping,
From tricksters and then keep dropping?
Why must you go for a risky drive,
Only to crash by a reckless dive?

Value your life and its action,
Always choose a sensible reaction.
Be of a good strong spine,
Then your decisions will be fine.

Your precious life, is to you God’s gift,
So by your conduct, to Him your praises lift.
Breathe each breath with a holy mission,
So that you live with Divine provision.

Be not idle

Be not idle O believer,
Lest you get tricked by the deceiver.
For the Devil works best on the idle mind,
Especially on those who leave their caution behind.

Be not idle O God’s friends,
Seek to please God at all life’s bends.
For your time on earth is not forever,
Some chances to do good don’t come twice ever.

Be not idle O Kingdom people,
Soar up for Christ like an eagle.
For great is Our Lord and King,
Unto him your praises sing.

Be not idle O everyone,
For nothing great the lazy has done.
Waken up your body, soul and mind,
In your walk of faith don’t lag behind.

Work out your salvation

Work out your salvation with fear and trembling,
Always have faith to refrain from stumbling.
Guard your heart with much care,
Against all those to deceive you dare.

Work out your salvation not alone,
Be always in the Holy Spirit’s zone.
Ever be vary of apostates vile,
If they your belief revile.

Work out your salvation with cleverness,
Always worshiping God with eagerness.
Your salvation so great is given by God,
Through Christ where no other could trod.

Work out your salvation with quality,
That your conduct never have frivolity.
The Gospel you’ve been given to hold and follow,
So that you walk with Christ beyond each tomorrow.

O Lord keep me away from danger

O Lord keep me away from danger,
From things familiar and stranger.
Keep me O Christ from traps hidden,
And the paths where darkness had ridden.

Turn me away from crookedness,
Let me not delight in wickedness.
Make me not desire timid silence,
Nor let me cherish sinister violence.

Cause me O Lord Jesus to be secure,
And also keep my gaze pure.
Let me not be enticed,
By those you have despised.

By your Holy Spirit cause me to have favour,
In the eyes of others when I rest or labour.
That all creatures benign or deadly,
Refrain from harming me, readily.

Let me be hidden from witchcraft’s eyes,
And from evil spirit’s especially one’s in disguise.
Keep me O Lord always in your grace,
That in your presence I find my place.

Flee Temptation

Flee temptation O Believer,
Entertain not the Deceiver.
Why must you give heed,
To any sinful seed?

Flee it like you flee a snake,
Don’t let deal you any heartache.
Why must you even follow,
The darkness vile and hollow?

Flee all sinful imaginations,
Regard them as worthless visions.
Why must you at all cherish,
The things the cause to perish?

Flee and rebuke any spirit of sin,
In Jesus name have your win.
Why must your will get stuck,
To know when to avoid the muck?

When do sinners receive justice without mercy?

Always speak words wise

Always speak words wise,
That God doesn’t despise.
Always speak words wise,
That goodness you maximize.

Always speak words wise,
That it be good advice.
Always speak words wise,
That kindness you verbalize.

Always speak words wise,
That you’re favored in God’s eyes.
Always speak words wise,
That sincerity you realize.

Always speak words wise,
That avoids any false guise.
Always speak words wise,
That faith in others they energize.
