The God of Israel

He is known in the Hebrew tongue as Jehovah,
And created the land, the stars and each supernova.
He is the Lord of the seas, the earth and the sky,
And life to all beings everywhere he does supply.

All knowing, all powerful, all powerful is he,
None can overcome the Lord by any degree.
He controls the storehouses of rain, cold and storm,
And great things and miracles he does perform.

In the past of all the many nations on the earth,
God chose Israel much before Abraham’s birth.
These were called to be his people forever,
So he gave them Law to follow wherever.

They lived under God’s protection,
And for them the Lord still has much affection.
The God of the Holy angels on high,
Manna in the wilderness for them he did supply.

In love for his people, the Lord is zealous,
Against worship of false gods, he is jealous.
For God reproves the sinner and does rebuke,
Moses worships him and so does Saint Luke.

He is merciful equally as he is just,
So he forgives those in him who put their trust.
He knows the heart and he knows the mind,
And keeps his Angels to the righteous assigned.

His Spirit is holy and so is his only begotten Son,
Manifest in the flesh Jesus has great victories won.
And he is seated at his Father and Lord’s right hand,
Giving salvation to all believers in the land.

For the God of Israel is not restricted to the Jews,
He pours out his grace on each, who the Gospel choose.
No wonder Jehovah planned to be the Redeemer of all nations,
For the Gentiles too are his beloved creations.

Poems Repentance Salvation

Flee youthful lusts

O believer flee youthful lusts,
Be one who in God trusts.
Flee malice and flee pride,
And rather in God’s Word abide.

Flee all the world’s seduction,
Be on who heeds instruction.
Avoid ungodly passions and greed,
Instead abide in Christ to be freed.

O you righteous don’t envy those who live in lust,
For the unrepentant have no hope after turning to dust.
O Sinners give heed to the repentance cry,
Take your steps towards the Lord, do try.

Poems Practical living

Be not greedy now nor any other day

Be not greedy now nor any other day,
But instead follow the holy and upright way.
Giving up greed ain’t the same as being a underachiever,
For living still in avarice makes you a self deceiver.

Make the Lord God your provider and upholder,
Don’t carry in your heart any covetousness boulder.
Put not your trust in the flesh,
But in your actions the name of God do bless.

Revel in wisdom but never lust for abundance of possessions,
Lest for ungodly gain you commit transgressions.
Give to the Lord God and to the poor and needy,
Be content in life and never greedy.

Deliverance Prayer tips

The war that is spiritual and yet real

Though this a re-post I still hope and and pray that you are blessed and totally delivered from evil in the name of Jesus.

As believers in Jesus we are in a state of constant spiritual warfare with the Devil and his kingdom. There is no opt out, you were born into this. Surely Jesus overcome the death, sin and Satan by the shedding of his blood on the cross and rising from the dead on the third day. Also as the Devil who was originally a great angel, was cast out of heaven along with his angels for rebelling against the Lord God.

Christ will come again on Judgement day to permanently judge all workers of evil especially the Devil and his angels. The Devil however still wants to continue to engage in war against Jesus and his followers because he is a gambler. Somehow he is highly self deceived, thinking that he can still sneak out a victory against God. But let me tell you that the Devil never has and never ever will win against God and his holy angels.

So the Evil One tries to harm people who are still on earth by some trick or the other.

Remember he even tried to tempt Jesus but couldn’t make a sinner of Jesus! Now after the resurrection of Christ, he can’t tempt Jesus but he surely keeps trying to undermine your faith by various means. He even today tries to oppress who so ever he can take down most easily whether an unbeliever or an ignorant believer.

Satan is full of hate against all humans even those who are non-Christian (even atheists) because man was created in the image and likeness of God (read Genesis 1:26). Now with the preaching of the Gospel of Christ and the New Testament, we must understand that the Devil hates Christians even more because they are a new creation in Christ (read 2 Corinthians 5:17)

Jesus had a lot of to say about Satan and his evil ways. You’d like to know at this point what Jesus said about Satan (click here). One thing that the Bible teaches is that the Devil knows his time is running short.  Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.

We therefore must not be ignorant of the Devils plan of hate and murder. He is the original terrorist and is the father of all terrorists. With Jesus on your side you need not fear him. However what is important is that you exercise your faith in Christ. Being willing and then actually participating in spiritual warfare against the Evil One is a sure sign of faith. Our enemies are spiritual, who at times deceive humans to do their bidding on earth. So instead of being hateful of sinners pray for their conversion and if they don’t stop sinning then pray for deliverance from evil.

Pray for wisdom from Christ and then act on it. Pray that evil doesn’t overcome you. Stop crying about corrupt politicians and instead pray for good governance. Don’t worry about your children’s health and education, follow wisdom and pray for them. Pray alone or pray with your church against the powers of darkness but most importantly pray in faith.

Here are a few sermon videos on Spiritual warfare that help you be good at fighting for the Lord Jesus Christ:
