To return to the previous page, press the BACK BUTTON on your web browser.

I'd like to tell you a little of how each of the poems in the collection came about. Many of the poems have direct Bible verses within the lyrics. These are not necessarily in the same order as on the website; and some of these may not be on the website as of yet.

All the poetry is from the ''My Testimony --To Soar With Jesus Collection''. Written by Daryl Stout. (C) Copyright 1989, 2017 by Daryl Stout. All Rights Reserved. Any abuse or unauthorized usage of this poetry will be dealt with at The Judgment Before Jesus Christ. The ''Soar with Jesus'' Eagle Design was created and designed by Dale Larison, and it is used by permission. This page was updated Feb. 26, 2017.

Note that If You're Offended By These Words, The Lord, He Made The Rules...NOT ME...and The True Hate Crime Committed There would be if I Betrayed you, and did NOT tell you of The Judgment that you will face When You Stand Before The Lord, so You Can't Say That You Weren't Warned. when you realize the consequences if you refuse to accept Jesus Christ As Your Lord And Saviour.

However, The Lord gave you FREE WILL, and whether you choose to ACCEPT or REJECT Him... Your Decision Will Be Honored at The Moment Of Your Death, for all Eternity. There Are No Less Days in either the joy of Heaven, The Home Of The Redeemed...or the torment of The Home Of The Damned...The Lake Of Fire...once you enter either place.

And, if the believers ON Jesus Christ...and not just IN Him, are wrong...they won't lose much when they die. But, if those who refuse God's Free Love Gift, are wrong...The Price Of Being Wrong will be far greater than they ever could pay...eternal torment in The Home Of The Damned.

The reason that this poetry is here...as a WITNESS to those who have not yet repented (turned from) their sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour...and a MINISTRY to those who have...is that I do NOT want my fellow man or woman to burn forever in The Lake Of Fire. Your Eternal Destiny depends on your choice.

Gospel Poetry


Soar With Jesus

Based on Isaiah 40:28-31, the idea came from, of all things, a square dancing belt buckle, with the logo of an Eagle, against a multi-colored sun, with the words ''Soar With Jesus''. The words for this song are entirely from the Scripture it is based on, with some slight changes to fit it to poetic form. The art was designed by Dale Larison...who was living in Oregon the last I heard.

A Friend For Life

The first song I ever wrote came to me about 1 1/2 years before I was saved...in my high school English class. Based on John 15:13, ''Greater Love Has No Man Than This...That A Man Lay Down His Life For His Friends''. Jesus is A Friend For Life, both here on Earth...and for those who accept Him as Saviour and Lord...and a Friend in Eternity as well. As I heard one evangelist describe it...''Jesus can be your Best Friend, or The Worst Nightmare There Faced''... the latter for those who refuse to accept Him as Saviour and Lord.

My Life With My Lord

This song is a brief song about my life, and how The Lord always cared for me, in every situation...from my physical birth...to my spiritual birth...and beyond to my heavenly birth one day...whether it be by death or Rapture.

Running The Race, Looking To Jesus

Based on Hebrews 12:1-3, life is a race...both physically and spiritually. This song, as the Scripture says...shows us Who our focus should be on.

The Coming Of Christ

This song was penned in the poetic style of a sonnet, originally done by William Shakespeare...the great English playwright, who wrote Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Hamlet, and other great literary and dramatic works. In short, this tells of the state of the world just before...and after The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ to Earth...to reign in Power and Glory.

Maranatha

The title is from a Greek word that means ''Our Lord Come'' or ''The Lord Is Coming Soon''. I originally was going to do this as a four part choral work, but I integrated it into the accompaniment. A companion piece to The Coming Of Christ, this tells of Rapture Of The Church, The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, and martyrdom of believers, The Coming Of Christ, the Millenium Of Peace, and The Judgment Of The Great White Throne. This is one of many songs in the collection that has ''an invitation'' to accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.

Precious

Based on 1 Peter 2:6-7, no better word could describe what Jesus Christ is to the believer...and to describe the decision one can make by accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

Let Me Go On To Glory

This song was written, and lovingly dedicated to the memory of my late grandmother, Rose B. Rentja, who went on to be with The Lord on June 11, 1993, after a long battle with lung cancer. I read the lyrics at her funeral, but was too overcome by grief to sing the song itself. It was sung at the funeral of my late father, who died in Feb. 2007, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer...and read at the funeral for my late wife, who died April 27, 2007, from a heart attack.

The Gift Is Christ

Based On 2 Corinthians 9:15, this song is my description of Christmas morning. Jesus Christ was not only born of a Virgin in a manger...and lived on the Earth among mankind...but, He came to die in our place, to save us from our sins, and with His Resurrection from the dead, to give us Eternal Life, when we accepted This Gift. To me, the perfect Christmas Tree is ''Three Nails in a Cross of Solid Wood''.

I Loved You So, My Child

Ironically written on Good Friday, the bass part is constant octaves...signifying the hammering of our sins to The Cross with Christ...and the nailing of them into the grave. This is one of two songs in the collection where Jesus ''speaks'' from The Cross. The key change in the song symbolizes The Resurrection...and the song finishes with a personal invitation by Jesus for the unsaved to accept Him as their Lord and Saviour.

Without The Resurrection

Based on 1 Corinthians 15:13-14, this song was ironically penned one Easter weekend. At the time it was done, the church that I belonged to, usually did their Choir Easter Cantatas a few weeks before the actual Easter Weekend...so the choir members could go and enjoy other churches Easter Cantatas. As it turned out, the night of Good Friday, no activities were scheduled at my church. So, I went out square dancing, a hobby I did from 1986 to 2002...then, took it up again after the death of my wife in 2007...to keep the loneliness at bay. My late grandmother wasn't too happy with what I did, so I told her ''The Crucifixion is important...but Without The Resurrection, It's Just Not The Same''.

What Good Is Your Pride Going To Do You In Hell??

This song came to me while hearing a sermon from Evangelist Rick Caldwell. He told of young people who were in a church service...and who became uneasy when the invitation to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour was given. He said that their attitude may have been ''I can't go up to the front, not with all my friends here...I'm too proud for that''. Rick shot back with ''Let me ask you...What Good Is Your Pride Going To Do You In Hell??''. This is one of two songs in the collection done in a minor key.

Equal At The Cross

This song came during a Sunday School lesson, where one of the participants, Debbie Smith, noted that ''the ground is Equal At The Cross''.

The Preaching Of The Cross

Based on 1 Corinthians 1:18-19, this song tells of the joy of the Gospel...how the unsaved feel toward it...and that the Saints one day will die for their faith.

Do You Have Time For Me??

Based on Revelation 3:20, this song is the most convicting for me personally, physically, and spiritually. All mankind has 24 hours in a day...and whether we want to admit it or not...we make time for what we want to do. This is the second song in the collection where Jesus ''speaks''...and asks for each of us to give Him time in our daily lives, no matter how hectic they are. This song also finishes with a personal invitation by Jesus for the unsaved to accept Him as their Lord and Saviour.

The Lord, He Saved

A mini-testimony, telling of how The Lord knew me even before I was conceived, how He saved me, how He cares for me, a personal prayer, and that He is waiting for the unsaved to come to Him as well.

How Shall We Escape??

Based on Hebrews 2:2-3, this is the second song in the collection done in a minor key. Creating a ''spooky'' atmosphere of sorts, it tells of the fate that awaits those of mankind who refuse to accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord.

The Last Days

A companion to both The Coming Of Christ, and Maranatha...this song is an overview of the last days prior to The Coming Of Christ to Earth. It includes The Rapture, The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ, The Marriage Supper Of The Lamb, The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, The Battle Of Armageddon, When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, the Millenium Of Peace, The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, The New Heaven and New Earth, and an invitation to accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord...before all these events take place.

Borne On An Angels Wings

This song started on a belief that I had when I was real young...when I believed that the offering that was taken at church went directly to God, Borne On An Angels Wings. The song also tells of the many things done by the Angels Of The Lord, the messengers of God.

They Never Would've Crucified The Lord Of Glory

Based on Romans 2:8, the powers of darkness...Satan and his demons, thought they had all of mankind doomed to Hell forever, when Jesus Christ died on the Cross. But, when Jesus rose from the dead, it sealed the defeat of Satan and his armies. Had they known Christ was going to rise from the dead, they never would have crucified Him...because that since Jesus defeated death and the grave, the saved would as well.

Rewards Were There For Me To Claim

Based on 1 Corinthians 3:13-15. All mankind will stand before Jesus Christ one day, to give an account for their lives here on Earth. Those who accepted Him as their Lord and Saviour will be judged at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ on the way they served Him during their lives...with some works pleasing to Him, and others not at all. Christians, due to their sin nature, may shrink back to where they lose rewards, but not so far as to lose salvation...as the issue of sin for Christians was settled at The Cross, when they accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

The Way

Based On Matthew 7:13-14, this song tells that of all the things that mankind does in life, thinking that they'll get them into Heaven...they will instead hear the somber Judgment from the Lord Jesus Christ ''Depart from Me... For you, I've Never Known...and tragically, many will end up this way. The song also includes an invitation to accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, and to become part of The Believing Remnant...the few...that will inherit Eternal Life.

Sinner, Seek The Lord Today While He May Be Found

Based On Isaiah 55:6, this tells that one day, the Grace Of God will come to an end...and after that point, it'll be too late for those who rejected Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord to receive Him. These will be sentenced at The Great White Throne Judgment to the Eternal Lake Of Fire.

The Day The Spirit Of The Lord Came And Pricked My Heart

Based on Acts 2:37, this tells of when The Spirit Of The Lord began to convict me of my sin, and my need to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.

Your Sins Are A Barrier

Based On Isaiah 59:2, this tells of how man is out of fellowship with God, because of the sin in his life...as it has put a barrier between him and God. It also tells how God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the Cross in our place, and remove the sin barrier, if we would accept Him as our Lord and Saviour.

Statement Of Faith

Originally from a Christian BBS (bulletin board system) Network, SON_Net, this statement is how I believe. Although the SON_Net BBS Network is no more...and for that matter, sadly very few BBS's are still online, I still subscribe to this Statement of Faith. With The Lord's Help, I transcribed the document into poetic verse.

When You're Far Away From Home

Many people can relate to this poem, with feelings of homesickness, etc. This was written when I found out that I was to move with my family from south Florida...to central Arkansas...due to my late father's company transferring the family. The bottom line is that no matter where you are...if you know The Lord, He's with you always.

The Sun -- God's Light On The World...plus Sunset

These two poems tell of the beauty of the sunrise and sunset...God's created light on the world.

His Story

History has been called ''His Story''...and this poem tells of Creation, man's rebellion and sin before God, God sending His Son, Jesus Christ to this Earth, to be born of a Virgin, to live among us, to die on an Old Rugged Cross for our sins, to be raised from the dead, and to one day return to this Earth in Power and Glory to reign...finishing with an invitation to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.

Sin Won't Rise A Second Time

Based on Nahum 1:9, this tells of how sin first corrupted God's Heaven, when introduced by Lucifer (who became Satan)... then the Earth...then how God dealt with the sin...by judgment, then by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to Earth, to die for the sins of the world. When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, at His Second Coming, and after His Millenium Of Peace, Satan's evil forces try one last rebellion, but are cast into the Lake Of Fire, along with all who refused to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. God then creates a New Heaven and a New Earth, and tells that sin won't be permitted to rise up a second time.

A Life On Trial

The inspiration for this came, ironically, from serving on jury duty in central Arkansas, in 1998, on two capital murder trials. Where mankind may ''get away with murder'' in this life, their lives will be before The Righteous Judge of all the Earth one day...and all the evidence...hidden and visible...will be there for all to see...with No Question Of Guilt. Those who accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour will have Jesus as their ''Defense Attorney'' before God. On the other hand, those who refused to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour will have Jesus as their ''Prosecuting Attorney'', ''Judge'', ''Jury'', and ''Executioner''...and No One Will Defend The Lost, because No One Gets Off Scot Free.

Springtime

Done in the style of a Shakesperian sonnet, originally done by William Shakespeare, the great English playwright, who wrote Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Hamlet, and other great literary and dramatic works. This tells of the rebirth of life with the spring season...now that winter's icy chill is gone.

Christmas Means and I Remember Christmas Past

These two poems, tell of the true meaning of Christmas, and how I remember Christmas of long ago, as I was growing up.

The Cry

Various ''cries'' throughout history...from God, His Prophets, John The Baptist, Jesus Christ, The People Of Jerusalem at Christ's Triumphal Entry, and at His Crucifixion, The Angel At The Empty Tomb...The Archangel at the Rapture, and lastly, asking what the sinner's cry is toward God.

Today, Oh, Lord, What Will You Have Me Do??

Based on Acts 9:6, when the former Saul Of Tarsus, the son of a Pharisee, who was on a mission to Damascus to round up the early church believers...to arrest, imprison, and eventually kill them. He was blinded by a midday light from Heaven, brighter than the sun. The voice of Jesus asked Saul ''Why are you persecuting me?''. Saul asked ''Who are you, Lord?'', and Jesus told him that it was He who Saul was actually persecuting. Saul then asked ''Lord, What Will You Have Me Do??''. This should be the question ALL TRUE CHRISTIANS should ask Christ every day...as He Is The Lord...and His Children are His Servants. Saul became the Apostle Paul, who was inspired to write much of the New Testament portion of The Books Of The Bible.

The Lasting Treasure

Many people go after things of this lifetime, but sadly fail to realize that ''you can't take it with you''. All who have died, are in their graves without one thin dime (let alone a wooden nickel) in their hands. Even the graves of the Pharoahs of Egypt have had their tombs looted. A quote sums it up well: ''All this life will soon be past...only what's done for Christ will last''. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8)...and He is the One you CAN take with you after death...IF you will accept Him as your Lord and Saviour.

Choices

We make choices every day of our lives. The choice to reject or accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour is the most important choice that you'll ever make.

Vessels Of The Lord

Based on Acts 9:15, after the former Saul Of Tarsus (now the Apostle Paul) was converted on the road to Damascus; where The Lord said that ''he is a chosen vessel for My Use''. All of His Children are that...even in their human, sinful, form of the corruptible flesh of this life.

The Road to the 1977 Florida All State Chorus

I had sung for many years, but never knew of my musical gifts until high school. When I began chorus, I literally couldn't hit a tone in a bucket. But, by the end of the year...The Lord graciously gave me these musical gifts:

A. Perfect pitch -- Having had no formal ''Ear Training'' whatsoever, I can be singing with a group, and tell if we're ''on key''. I can also tell whether an instrument is out of tune...and without looking, can reproduce a note on the piano after hearing it played. I was given the award of ''Most Improved Chorus Student'' at years end. The next year, only myself and a fellow student, Elvy Rose Alvarez, were the only ones from the south Florida area to make the Florida All State Chorus, held in Orlando in 1977.

B. Sight Reading -- I can pick up a piece of choral or vocal music that I've never seen before, and sing it as written...unless there are a lot of ''accidentals'' in the music...then it takes some work.

C. Piano Playing and Song Writing -- Having been reluctant to practice my piano lessons when growing up, I took it up one day on my own. The songs I write basically are chordal improvisation, and rather simple. However, the melody and basic accompaniment gets the job done. To me, the words are more important than the music.

Unfortunately, declining health over the years has greatly reduced or eliminated my participation in choirs, etc....but, I still enjoy singing and writing poetry for The Lord.


Drama and A Thespian Is...

Having been part of theatre arts in high school, I wrote these poems telling briefly of what all is involved. The International Thespian Society, named after the Greek actor Thespus, is a group of individuals who enjoy working with theatre arts, dramatic productions, etc. The experience carried over into dramatic cantatas done at churches. The most memorable experience I have was doing ''Joy Comes In The Morning'' at Geyer Springs First Baptist Church in Little Rock, Arkansas. Surrounding the last week of Jesus' Life on Earth, it dealt with Palm Sunday, The Last Supper, The Betrayal in the Garden Of Gethsemane by Judas Iscariot, the denial of knowing him by Peter, the beating before Pontious Pilate, His carrying of The Cross, upon which He was crucified...and His Resurrection. It was like a ''time warp''...choir members went from being the angry mob...to the weeping mourners in a matter of seconds. You felt like you were there at the Crucifixion...and then experiencing the joy of the Resurrection.

Music

Again in the same poetic sonnet style of Springtime, this is a brief overview of what music is...and my favorites of it.

The Rocky Road Of Life

Life is a challenge, from birth to death...whether one marries or not. The best decision one can make is accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

You Can't Earn God's Salvation

Based on Acts 8:20, the only thing that will obtain Salvation in Jesus Christ is through admitting that you're a sinner, that nothing else can save you, and that you're willing to turn away from your sin (repent), and accept what Jesus Christ did for you on Calvary. Doing good deeds, what's right in this life, etc. is not enough...and God's Salvation can not be bought...it is a free gift to all who would receive it.

The Lord Has No Pleasure In The Death Of Those Who Die

Based on Ezekiel 18:32. For everyone who refuses to accept God's Free Love Gift in what Jesus Christ did on Calvary's Rugged Cross for all who would ever live, that is one less soul in the Kingdom Of God...and it brings no pleasure to God to have to cast these into the Lake Of Fire for all Eternity, with Satan and his demons. This poem also carries an anti-abortion message.

Eternally and Eternity

From time past, to the present day, to the future...how you will fare eternally, at The Moment Of Your Death is dependent on what you did with Jesus Christ while you were here on Earth.

Don't Take A Chance With God

Tomorrow Is Promised To No One...let alone the next 5 seconds. Taking a chance with God is like playing eternal Russian Roulette with your soul. If that ''gun'' fires, you won't have a chance to change your mind.

The Second Home

Everyone has a home where they live, and hopefully, a church home...their Second Home...where The Word Of God, and the message of Jesus Christ Crucified and Resurrected, is preached. For a time, Second Baptist Church, Little Rock, Arkansas, was my ''Second Home''...pun intended. Unfortunately, due to health issues...and several churches over the years saying that ''I am too overbearing, and have too much emotional baggage''...it has become impractical for me to attend church anymore.

Oh, That You Would Bless Me (The Prayer Of Jabez)

Based on 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 and Proverbs 3:5-6, the story of Jabez' simple prayer to God, God's granting of his request...and the admonition to trust The Lord with all things.

What Will You Do With Jesus Christ??

This question is the most important question that you, and everyone who has ever lived on Earth must answer. Your Eternal Destiny...blessedness or doom...depends on your decision. Jesus will either be your Saviour, or your Judge; your Best Friend, or The Worst Nightmare There Faced.

An All Consuming Fire Is Our God

Based on Deuteronomy 4:24, the all consuming fire of God tells of His Awesome Power and Glory, and how that will destroy the wicked one day in judgment.

The Judgment

Based on Hebrews 9:27, when man dies, they will face a judgment and an accounting before The Lord. It'll be either at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ, The Judgment Of The Sheep and The Goats, or at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne Those at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ, or as the Sheep, will live and reign forever with Jesus Christ in Heaven, as they accepted God's Free Love Gift of what Jesus Christ did for them on Calvary. Those who are as the Goats, or at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne will have rejected this Gift, and will spend Eternity in the Lake Of Fire, with Satan and his demonic hordes.

God's Protection

Throughout history, God has protected his own from His Wrath and Judgment, by removing the believers before The Judgment fell. The fate of those who spurned this protection is obvious.

Why Do The Heathen Of The Earth Always Rage?

Based on Psalm 2:1, the question is asked ''What Has God Done to deserve all the contempt directed toward Him?''. He gave mankind everything they could ever want or need...and they responded by ''thumbing their nose'' at His Goodness.

The Cross Is Empty

Many people wear crucifixes (crosses) around their necks, some with ''a figure of Jesus Christ'' on them. However, Christ was taken down off of the Cross after His Death, which was to pay for the sins of all mankind who would ever live. After 3 days in the grave, He arose from the dead...defeating both Death and the grave. So, both The Cross and The Tomb are Empty. However, to receive this free gift, it must be humbly and willingly accepted.

For You Would Not Allow It

This will be the main reason that people are sent to Eternal Doom in the Lake Of Fire from The Judgment Of The Great White Throne The Lord Did All He Could To Save Your Soul... however, this forgiveness was not applied to these people, because they would not allow it.

One Heartbeat Away

At death, which can come quickly, and without warning...life is over. And, at that point, so is the chance you have to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. If you don't accept Him, you automatically reject Him.

No Question Of Guilt

Everyone will stand before God one day to give an account of their life. Everything done...the good, the bad, the ugly...in thought, word, or deed...whether done in secret, or in the open...will be displayed for all to see. And, there will be no question of guilt on your part for the deeds that you did.

The Words Are So Inadequate

Just saying THANK YOU to God for sending His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, to Earth, to die for all sins, seems so inadequate...as we can NEVER repay Him for what He did for us.

God Will Not Wait Forever

While God is patient, He will not wait forever for mankind to repent of his sinful ways, and come to accept His Free Love Gift in the Person Of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, as Lord and Saviour. One day, His Patience and His Grace will run out, and it'll be too late to make that decision.

Your Life Is Being Recorded

Everything that you say, think, and do...whether in the open for all to see...or in secrecy...is being recorded. And, it will be played back at The Judgment to be used against you. While you might ''get away with murder'' on Earth...whether you thought of killing someone, or you actually killed them...you will answer for that deed When You Stand Before The Lord one day.

The Books Of The Bible

From the 39 books of the Old Testament, to the 27 books of the New Testament, God's plan for mankind, and history, is noted therein. While Heaven and Earth will pass away one day, God's Words Live Forever, Friend.

Years From Now, You'll Remember

Many years after your death, you will remember how you reacted when you first heard the Gospel that Jesus Christ died for your sins. You'll remember whether you either repented of your sin, and accepted Him as Lord and Saviour...or whether you rejected His Free Love Gift for you.

The One Sin Unforgiven

There is only one sin that God will NOT forgive...the rejection of His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, in His Life, Death, and Resurrection, to pay for every other sin that mankind would ever do. And, if this one sin is on your ''record'', it will keep you OUT of Heaven...and instead, send you to the Lake Of Fire to be tormented for all Eternity.

One Day, On Bended Knee

Based on Phillippians 2:10-11...one day, either humbly and willingly...or from compulsion, and Without Excuse, by the Truth Of God's Word...for everyone who has lived on Earth throughout Eternity; EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, and EVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD...to the Glory of God The Father. What you do with Jesus Christ, God's Free Love Gift, will determine which way you will bow before Him.

The Commandments Ten

Based on Exodus 20:3-17, the Ten Commandments that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai. But, if you break only one of these commandments, there is only one way you can be forgiven; as just one sin, the breaking of the law, will keep you OUT of Heaven, without Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

The Rapture And Beyond

Based on 1 Corinthians 15:51-55, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, and other verses...this tells what will happen at the Rapture of the Church, and beyond...and a message for those reading this before, and after the Rapture.

Like A Roaring Lion

Based on 1 Peter 5:8, Satan is like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, and destroy. His rebellion started with deceiving one third of the angelic realm; and because ''misery loves company''...throughout history, Satan and his demonic minions have worked to try to keep all mankind from hearing the Good News...that Jesus Christ, The Lion Of Judah, died on Calvary to save mankind from all their sins, if they'll only come to Jesus in humility, repentance, and faith. Satan was defeated once before, at the Resurrection; and Christ will again defeat Satan and his forces at both the Second Coming, and at the end of the Millenium...then cast Satan and his evil hordes into the Lake Of Fire, to be tormented for all Eternity.

The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace

Based on Revelation 6:2, after the Rapture Of The Church, an evil king will rise to power, proclaiming himself to be ''the saviour of the world''. In reality, he will be ''The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace'', the Antichrist, Satan Incarnate...worse than Judas Isacariot...the disciple who betrayed Jesus Christ for thirty pieces of silver. This individual, who Scripture terms as ''The Beast'', will unleash such a flood tide of evil, that'll make the regimes of Hitler, Stalin, and other tyrannical despots throughout history, to pale by comparison. But, he and his ally, The False Prophet, will be cast into The Lake Of Fire, to suffer for all Eternity, at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ...and they later will be joined by Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone who refused God's Free Love Gift.

When You Stand Before The Lord

Based on 2 Corinthians 5:10 and Revelation 20:12, when you stand before The Lord Jesus Christ, to give an accounting for your life on Earth...how you will react to it will be whether you rejected or accepted God's Free Love Gift.

Children Are A Heritage

Based on Psalm 127:3, children are a heritage of The Lord, a physical gift from God. Sadly, many of these children are never born, due to ''abortion by convenience'', killing the unborn child, thinking the child is a ''side effect from having sex''. Having never known the curse of sin or an Earthly life, these are with Jesus Christ, and the angels in Heaven. Jesus Christ alone can cleanse you from this sin, if you will repent of your sin, and accept Him as Lord and Saviour...for ''the Lord hates the shedding of innocent blood''. Christ Himself was innocent, when He went to The Cross, to die for all the sins ever committed...even abortion.

Where Did They All Go??

Based on 1 Corinthians 15:51-55, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, and other verses, this will be the cry of those left behind at the Rapture of the Church. The joy in store for those raptured is told in this poem, and also how you can be part of this group, if you're reading it before the Rapture occurs.

If You Wait, 'Til It's Too Late

At your death...which can come suddenly, and without warning...it'll be too late for you to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. God is able to save all those who call upon His Name, in repentance and faith...up until The Moment Of Your Death...when the threshhold of Eternity is crossed. You'll see that you're The One To Blame...in your suffering for all Eternity...if you reject what Jesus Christ did for you on The Cross Of Calvary.

The Testing Of The Lord

Based on Matthew 4:7 and Malachi 3:10, testing or ''tempting'' The Lord is a dangerous thing to do. It can be whether you dare for Him to strike you dead (such as asking to be hit by lightning), or your repeated mocking and spurning of His Grace. For if you push God too far, you WILL regret it Eternally. However, there is ONE INSTANCE in Scripture where God WILL allow you to ''test'' Him...but, it must be done in a loving, giving spirit...in bringing all the tithes to His Storehouse. Then, He will open up the windows of Heaven, to pour out so many blessings, that there won't be room enough to receive them. Aside from this, will YOU pass the Greatest Test Of All?? Will you reject or accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour??

Your Eternal Destiny

There are many beliefs on where people will go when they die. Some believe that once you're dead...that's it...just like the Saducees of Biblical days...so they're ''sad, you see'' (pun intended). Others believe that you go to a place of preparation first, such as Purgatory...the term of which is NOT in the Bible. But, in truth...only two places exist. If you do nothing, you'll go to a place of eternal suffering...first Hell, then the Lake Of Fire. However, if you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you'll go to a place of eternal joy...Heaven.

The Price Of Being Wrong

In any decision, when one is wrong, they have to deal with the consequences. Concerning the religions of the world...if the believers ON Jesus, and not just IN Jesus, are wrong...they won't lose very much when they die. But, if those who reject Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, are wrong...they will lose far more at their death.

What Can God Do To Me??

People give little thought to the gravity of this question when they ask it. The Creator of all things can provide blessings, and just as easily remove them...as well as bringing triumph, or allowing tragedy to enter ones life. He can also save a repentant sinner from eternal damnation, if they will humbly let Him...or He can cast the unregenerate into The Lake Of Fire.

Judgment Must Begin

Based on 1 Peter 4:17, God's Judgment must begin at His Throne, with His Children. If those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are going to be judged, where does that leave those who have rejected Jesus??

Betrayed

When you're betrayed by a close friend, you feel that your whole world has crashed down. And, I'd be betrayed to you, as a friend...if I didn't warn you about God's Judgment for sin. This poetry collection is a witness to those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour...and a ministry to those who have. The choice of whether you accept or reject Jesus Christ is yours to make.

The Wages Of Sin

Based on Romans 6:23, the ''wages of sin'' is physical death...where the shedding of innocent blood would have to pay for any sin commited. But, God provided the Gift of Eternal Life through His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, in His Precious Blood shed on an Old Rugged Cross. On Easter morn, Jesus got ''payback'', defeating Hell and the Grave at His Resurrection. While the wages of sin (physical death) are never reduced, those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour...and ''who are alive and remain'' at the Rapture Of The Church, will NOT have to receive these wages. Will you be in this group??

For All Have Sinned

Based on Romans 3:23, everyone who has lived on Earth has sinned before God. And, only one sin done will keep you out of Heaven. The only perfect, sinless life lived on Earth was The Lord Jesus Christ...God's Only Begotten Son...who left Heaven's Glory to come to Earth, be born of a Virgin, live and walk among us in all ways (except without sin), and then be crucified on an Old Rugged Cross to die to pay for every sin done. Even The Virgin Mary, the Earthly Mother of Jesus Christ, made an offering of turtledoves, as she knew that Jesus Christ would be her Saviour. In Luke 1:46-47, she sang ''My soul does magnify The Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God, My Saviour''. If she was sinless, as some believe, WHY did she say she needed a Saviour?? And, as I John 1:10 says, ''If we say we have no sin, we make God a liar, and His Word is not in us''. After your death, you WILL stand in Judgment before The Risen Lord, Jesus Christ. If He sees that you did not accept what He did on Calvary, refusing to repent of your sin, and receive Him as your Lord and Saviour...that puts The One Sin Unforgiven, on your ''record''...and, Christ will have no choice but to condemn you to The Lake Of Fire, to be tormented for all Eternity ...with Satan, his demonic hordes, and every other person on Earth, who also refused God's Free Love Gift.

The Changing Of God's Word

Based on Revelation 22:18-19, the adding to, or taking away from God's Word, is an Eternally dangerous sin. If God did change, everything would be consumed by His Righteous Judgment. Man's words are spoken and changed, but God's Word NEVER changes. For those who add to, or take away from His Word...such as in various Bible translations...He will add to them the plagues described in The Bible...and take away their citizenship in The New Heaven, The New Earth, and The New Jerusalem...casting them into the Lake Of Fire, with Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone else throughout history who rejected Him...and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

Those Not In God's Kingdom

Based on Galatians 5:19-21, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, and Revelation 21:27 and 22:15, these tell of everyone who will NOT be in God's Kingdom of eternal peace and blessing. Instead, they'll suffer eternal damnation, and never ending torment in the Lake Of Fire, where Satan, his demonic hordes, and all the unsaved will be. All the deeds listed, or just the sin of rejecting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour...if any of these show up when your life is reviewed before Jesus Christ, you tragically will also be a part of this group.

Tragedy At Rapture

These words seem out of place, as the Rapture is the fantastic event for all those, dead and alive, who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. The tragedy will be for all those who are left behind, as they will witness a period that truly can be called ''Hell On Earth''. A period of Great Tribulation will engulf the Earth, never seen before. At the end of that time, Jesus Christ... The King Of Kings, and Lord Of Lords...will return in Power and Glory... with the Heavenly Host, and all those who were raptured seven years earlier. After casting The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace and The False Prophet into The Lake Of Fire, as well as destroying the contending armies at the Battle Of Armageddon, and all who rejected Him...He will set up His Kingdom, and Of Christ's Kingdom, There Shall Be No End, starting with the Millenium Of Peace.

I'll Break The Pride Of Your Power

Based on Leviticus 26:19, nations and individuals who get proud and cocky with their power...whether from wealth or other means...will have the pride of their power broken by The Lord. Their nations and their lives will be afflicted with adversity, and see their wealth and riches disappear...because they thought more of these things, than of the things of The Lord. And, He wants to break the pride of your power in your rebellion toward Him...by your repenting of your sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

Lost Without A Compass

Anyone who has lost their sense of direction...whether while traveling, being outdoors, at sea, etc. knows how frustrating and confusing things are...especially if they don't have a compass or a way to guide them. Just as being lost without a compass in this life is discouraging, being lost without a compass from an eternal standpoint is far worse. God Almighty, The Lord Jesus Christ, is the Master Compass of Life, and He can right your ship, if you will accept Him as Lord and Saviour, and let Him be your Guide. Those who refuse this direction will be Eternally lost.

Going Home

The idea for this came at a memorial service for a friend of the family...actually from a sermon entitled ''The Enoch Story''. Based on Genesis 5:22-24, Enoch was a man who walked with God on a daily basis. Every day at sunset, the time came for them to go their separate ways...but one day, God told Enoch ''Tonight, we're closer to My Home''...and so God took him Home to Heaven. When the sunset of your life arrives, which home will you go to Eternally?? God's Home Of Bliss in Heaven, reserved for those who repented of their sin, and by faith, accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour?? Or to The Home Of The Damned and unregenerate, full of eternal suffering and pain?? The choice is yours.

All Roads Lead To God; But To Heaven, Only One

All roads do lead to God, in the Person of His Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, The Giver Of All Life. However, ONLY ONE ROAD LEADS TO HEAVEN...no matter what the religions of the world say. You'll face The Lord Jesus Christ at one of two Judgments...either at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ), or at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne. The difference is whether or not you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, while you were on Earth.

The Wicked Shall Be Turned Into Hell

Based on Psalms 9:17, the destination for all who refuse to repent of their sin, and to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, will first be the torment of Hell...then after The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, Eternal Suffering in the Lake Of Fire, with Satan and his demons.

You Are Bound For Hell

Like it or not, unless you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour...at your death, you are bound for Hell...and then the Lake of Fire for all Eternity with Satan and his demons. It takes NO DECISION TO GO TO HELL, but it DOES TAKE A DECISION TO GO TO HEAVEN. No One Else But Jesus lived a sinless life worthy to go to Heaven...and putting your faith in anything else (good deeds, religions, etc.) to get you to Heaven will be WORTHLESS When You Stand Before The Lord on Judgment Day.

When Christ Returns To Planet Earth

Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son, The King Of Kings, and Lord Of Lords, and The Only Way To Heaven, will return to Earth one day...and life on Earth will no longer be ''business as usual''. First at the Rapture Of The Church, then seven years later, at the Second Coming, He will set up His Millenium Of Peace, and destroy all those who rejected Him. You can be part of the Bride of Christ, if you repent of your sin, and accept Him as Lord and Saviour BEFORE the Rapture Of The Church, and part of the Heavenly Host at the Second Coming. However, if you also reject Him during The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, you'll be destroyed at the Second Coming, and suffer eternal torment in the Lake Of Fire with Satan and his demons.

Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags

Based on Isaiah 64:6, all the good deeds that you could ever do to try to enter Heaven, are as filthy rags...literally, bloody menstrual cloths...before God. And, if God sees these ''dirty rags'', instead of ''rags as clean white snow'', washed by the Precious Blood Of His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ...He will have no choice but to send you to the Lake Of Fire, to suffer for all Eternity. Whether this ''spiritual wash'' is done, is determined by your rejection or acceptance of Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

Going Through The Motions

Going through the motions, in your ''religious life''...to where it becomes ritualistic...to where you could ''do it in your sleep'', is done by so many people. You're fooling others into thinking that you are really blessed by God, but the fool is really YOU. Like the nauseating effects of tepid water (neither cold nor hot, but lukewarm), Jesus will ''vomit these lukewarm individuals out of His Mouth''. You think you're pleasing God, but you're literally ''making Him sick'' by your actions. You'll be ashamed, and terrified one day When You Stand Before The Lord...if all you did was ''live like The Lord for a few hours on Sunday, but lived like Satan the rest of the week''...a hypocrite in everything you did. If you don't feel the conviction of the Holy Spirit in your ''life of sin'', the question is ''did you truly accept Christ as your Lord and Saviour, forsaking the old life of sin??''.

Hated By The Lord

Based on Proverbs 6:16-19, there are six things The Lord hates, and a seventh is an abomination to Him. He also hates it when someone dies without receiving Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Wouldn't you rather be loved by The Lord, instead of being hated by Him, in His Righteous Anger??

The Will Of The Lord

If you've wondered what The Will Of The Lord is, it can be summed up this way. He is Sovereign over all creation, and His Will is determined by the prayers of His People. He will either direct or permit circumstances, according to what mankind does...but His Divine Will ultimately will ALWAYS be accomplished...no matter what man thinks or wants... and nothing that occurs catches Him by surprise. And, it is also His Will that ''no one should die in their sin, but that all should come to repentance'' by faith in His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ. However, He gave mankind ''free will'', to accept or reject Him.

Seals, Bowls, and Trumpets

Three sets of seven judgments, are set to come upon the Earth, during The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, The Great Tribulation, in the seven year period before Jesus Christ returns to Earth in Power and Glory. Starting after the Rapture Of The Church, these will increase in scope and severity, until Christ returns. While the ''actual order'' is ''seals, trumpets, and bowls'', I modified the title a bit for better poetic rhythm. Regardless of order, they WILL occur...but, you can miss all of these, if you repent of your sin, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, before the Rapture.

Unless It's Done For Christ, It Does No Good

When your life is over, and you stand before God's Son, Jesus Christ, in Judgment...you'll realize that only what you did in your life for Jesus Christ will last for Eternity as gold, siver, and precious stones. Anything else, done for self, will burn up as wood, hay, and stubble. So, while your deeds may appear to be gold, silver, and precious stones, His Refining Fire will show if these are true, or false. And, When You Stand Before The Lord one day, if you don't even have the gem of repenting of your sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour...you, and your entire book of lifes deeds will burn, suffering for all Eternity, in the Lake Of Fire.

King Of Kings, and Lord Of Lords

Based On Revelation 17:14 and 19:16, Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son, is the ULTIMATE Ruling Authority. When He came to Earth the first time, to suffer and die for the sins of mankind...He humbly and willingly submitted to both the Will of His Heavenly Father, and to the wisdom of Earthly Potentates. At His Second Coming, He'll COMPEL all of these rulers to PERMANENTLY YIELD their scepters to Him, as King Of Kings, and Lord Of Lords...and Of Christ's Kingdom, There Shall Be No End. How you will react when you meet Him will be determined whether or not you accepted Him as your Lord and Saviour, while you lived on Earth.

Quickly Coming Is the Lord

Based on Revelation 2:5 and 16, 3:11, 22: 7, 12, 20...when mankind least expects it, The Lord Jesus Christ will Return...first at the Rapture Of The Church, and then seven years later to Return PERMANENTLY to the Earth. When the moment on God's Timetable for Christ's Return arrives, He will no longer delay...but come quickly. Those who repent of their sin, accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, and serve Him every day, won't be caught off guard when He returns.

God Is Like The Wind

You can't see the wind, or know where it began. But, you can see the effects of it...whether it's a gentle rustling breeze, or from a powerful tornado, or hurricane. God is like the wind...He has always existed, and while you can't see Him, there's evidence of His Power throughout all Creation. He is in control of everything, including lifes storms... both weather related, and various situations. But, the greatest storm of all is the one for your eternal soul. Will you accept His Son, Jesus Christ, as your Lord and Saviour?? Or will you negate the cooling breeze of His Salvation, and instead prefer the blazing, never ending, inferno heat of the Lake Of Fire??

The Lord Is In Control

Throughout Eternity past, present, and future...The Lord is in control...even though it may not seem like it, with all the evil in the world throughout history. But, if God were to cease control for even a nanosecond, the entire universe would implode upon itself. The Lord, by His Direct or Permissive Will, either directs or allows things to happen, people to be in charge of a nation, etc. And, His Will will ultimately be done...whether mankind accepts or believes that, or not. And, The Lord wants you to give Him Control of your life, by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. However, He will not force this control on you...it's your choice to accept or reject Him. Your Eternal Destiny hinges on your decision.

The Lord Is Not Surprised

When good and bad things happen, people wonder if The Lord ''was surprised''. The truth is, He knows all of Eternity... from Creation into the Future and beyond. Nothing happens without His Direct or Permissive Will...whether it's done in secret or in the open...unheard or shouted from the mountains. He knows everyones motives, words, and thoughts, before they're even brought to mind, or to our tongue. He knows what is best for us, and what will destroy us. And, He ultimately knows whether one will accept or reject Him...but that decision is up to the individual to make....what they decide determines where they will go when they die.

The Now And Eternal Cost

There is a cost to following Jesus Christ...both here on Earth...and Eternally. For those accepting God's Free Love Gift of Salvation...it may appear that they are suffering greatly in this life, with persecution from their friends, etc. But, either at death or rapture, all that was endured for Christ will be worth it all, in exchange for eternal joy and bliss. By contrast, those who rejected this Precious Gift, not wanting to be ostracized on Earth, and preferring a life of sin...these will pay a far greater cost in Eternity, in the Lake Of Fire. Which of these costs you wish to pay is a choice that you alone must make.

Heaven Or Hell

No matter what you've heard, only one of two destinations will be yours when you die. It won't be purgatory, reincarnation, or even a state of eternal sleep. It'll either be Heaven...The Home Of The Redeemed, for those who accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and served Him throughout their lives...or Hell...The Home Of The Damned, who rejected God's Free Love Gift...accompanied by Satan, his demonic hordes, and the vilest and most evil people that ever lived on this Earth. Compared to the beauty of Heaven, the agony of Hell is a stopover on the way to The Lake Of Fire, where the unrepentant and unregenerate will suffer in never ending torment. As noted, Heaven is a place of incredible beauty, where God The Father, His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, and those who trusted in Christ through the years now dwell. At the Rapture Of The Church, all those who died in the faith, will receive their new, eternal, resurrection bodies, in a split second before the saved ''who are alive and remain''...and all these will meet Christ in the sky, seven years prior to His Return to Earth in Power and Glory to rule and reign. And, since only a perfect sinless life can enter Heaven, No One Else But Jesus is qualified. By dying in our place on that Old Rugged Cross, and sealing the victory with His Resurrection, He made the way to enter Heaven by His Righteousness, applied to all those who would turn from their sin, and accept Him as their Lord and Saviour. YOU ALONE must make the decision to either accept, or reject Jesus Christ. And, while God will NOT FORCE you to make a decision, the consequences of that decision will determine where you will go upon your death...which can come at any moment, without warning.

What Will Christ Jesus Say To You??

Like it, admit it, accept it, believe it, or not...you WILL stand before Christ Jesus one day, in judgment. What He will say to you will be determined by whether or not you accepted what He did for you on Calvary's Old Rugged Cross, and how you lived your life on Earth...serving Him, or your own sinful desires.

The Gamble

Many people gamble in various ways...betting on sporting events, playing at the casinos, taking part in lotteries, etc. The sad thing is, that the ones who are spending the most money on these things, are the ones who can least afford it. But, many more are playing ''Russian Roulette'' with their soul, gambling that ''Heaven Is Guaranteed To Them At Death''. But, just as you have a better chance at being struck by lightning here on Earth, than winning big time at a gambling vice...you have the same chance of being struck by the 'Divine Lightning Of God's Judgment''...if you choose to gamble with your soul, and that your ''good deeds'' will get you that ''winning ticket to Glory''. Only by repenting of your sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, will you be allowed entrance into Heaven.

The Grace Of God

God's Grace...it is totally unmerited and undeserved, by everyone on Earth. Yet, because God has always loved man...in spite of his rebellion...He sent His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, to Earth. He, who left Heaven's Glory, for a sinful Earth...to be born of a Virgin, Christ lived and walked among us, in all ways, but without sin or guile. For God knew that by Christ's Life on Earth, His Precious Blood that was shed for every sin mankind would ever commit...resulting in His Undeserved Death on the Old Rugged Cross of Calvary, and His Glorious Resurrection on the Third Day, redemption would be a FREE GIFT to all who would receive it. Even though all the sins of those who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are forgiven, where these can now enter Heaven and eternal joy at their death...God's Grace is a License To Serve; Not License To Sin...as it's the least that we can do for Him, since we can NEVER repay Him for dying in our place. However, this Free Gift is NOT automatic...you must humbly, and willingly accept it. If you refuse it, Christ will have NO CHOICE, but to condemn you to suffer Eternally in The Lake Of Fire, with Satan, his demons, and every one of the most evil and vile people that ever walked this Earth.

What Will You Be Doing??

When Christ returns...first at the Rapture Of The Church...then seven years after The Great Tribulation has wracked the Earth...what will you be doing?? Will you be ashamed, as you were engaged in acts of sin...or will you rejoice, as you were serving The Lord when He returns?? For while the Rapture is ONLY for those who through the years have accepted Him as their Lord and Saviour...whether they're alive or not at that time...His Second Coming will be where Every Eye Will See Him. He will order the resurrection of the dead, and the translation of the living ''in the twinkling of an eye'' at the Rapture. And, at His Second Coming, it'll be too late to fall at His Feet, and call Him Lord.

The Cross Of Christ

The Cross Of Christ, where God's Plan Of Redemption was fulfilled, by the Shed Blood of The Lord...is Precious to the repentant sinner, and a joke to those who reject it. But, The Last Judgment was prefigured on Calvary..with The Lord (the Judge) in the center, the lost (the Goats) on the left, and the saved (the Sheep) on the right. The ground is Equal At The Cross, and God's Free Love Gift, obtained by what Christ did there, is available as a Free Gift to all who would receive it. Where you will go upon your death is determined by whether you accepted, or rejected it.

The Name Of Jesus

Based on Philppians 2:9-11, the Name Of Jesus, is above every other name in Heaven, on Earth, and under the Earth. And one day, everyone who has ever lived...will bow before His Throne, and at His Name, confessing that He is Lord, to the Glory of God The Father. His Name encompasses all that God has; and there are only two ways to use that wonderful Name...either in prayer to Him, or when you witness of Him. Anything else...including as ''a swear word''...is taking His Name in vain, and He will NOT hold you guiltless if you do this. The Name is Precious to the repentant sinner, who comes to Him in faith, to accept Him as their Lord and Saviour...and it is terrifying to those who reject Him, when they will face Him one day. Which way is this Name to you??

The Suffering Servant

Based entirely on the prophecy of the book of Isaiah, chapter 53, it tells of Jesus Christ, The Lamb Of God, The Messiah, as The Suffering Servant...His role in His first visit to Earth...to suffer and die for the sins of everyone would ever live. Now, as conquering King, He will one day return to judge the world, and the lives of everyone who would ever live. And, depending on what you did with Him while you were on Earth, will determine where you spend Eternity...either with the eternal joy of Heaven, or eternal torment in The Lake Of Fire.

Tomorrow Is Promised To No One

You may have plans that you're going to live for many years...when in actuality, tomorrow is promised to no one...not even the next five seconds. I experienced this fact, firsthand, with the untimely death of my wife three weeks shy of our fourth wedding anniversary. Every day and moment of life is a gift from God, just as the Death of His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, on Calvary's Old Rugged Cross, was for mankind so long ago. Today could very well be your last day on Earth...and you may in fact, be in your final minutes of life here on Earth. Once the threshhold of Eternity is crossed at death, it is TOO LATE to repent of your sin, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. And, if you fail to make that choice, you will regret it Eternally, as you suffer never ending torment in The Lake Of Fire.

No One Else But Jesus

Based On Acts 4:12, there is Salvation ONLY in Jesus Christ...and ONLY by believing on Him, accepting what He did for you on Calvary's Rugged Cross, dying in your place for your sin, and making Him your personal Saviour, and Lord of Your Life...will get you to Heaven. Praying to, believing in, or on another person, a church, a religion, or something else for your salvation, will send you to eternal torment in The Lake Of Fire, with Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone else who rejected God's Free Love Gift.

What Lies Ahead

What lies ahead for you at The Moment Of Your Death will be eternal torment in The Lake Of Fire, if you rejected Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour...or eternal joy in Heaven, if you accepted God's Free Love Gift. The choice is yours, and I pray that you will make the right one.

Relationship, Not Religion

To put it in perspective...it's NOT what you know...but WHO you know...to get you into Eternity. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Saviour, anything else that you do or believe on in life will COUNT FOR NOTHING When You Stand Before The Lord one day.

The Only Time That Satan Truthfully Speaks

Originally the covering cherub, who guarded the Throne of God, Lucifer filled with pride, and became Satan...the father of lies...when he deceived one third of the angelic realm into thinking they could overthrow God and His Heavenly Kingdom. Amazingly, there are times when Satan does tell the truth...usually the moment an unsaved soul enters the pit of Hell. But, neither he, nor anyone else, can fool God. Usually, Satan's speaking is really to cover up what he's doing, and to keep people from hearing the Gospel that Jesus Christ died for their sins, and to free them from Satan's grip. And, this tragic truth is what you'll find out if you die in your sins, having never accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. After death, it's Too Late to make that decision...for One Day, On Bended Knee...Satan, his demonic hordes, and all the unrepentant souls that have ever lived, will all bow on their kneees in the Lake Of Fire, compelled by the Truth of God's Word, and declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God The Father. When a true believer...one who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour...knows that they are seated with Christ in the Heavenlies, uses The Name Of Jesus on Satan or his demons, they MUST back off...as they are TERRIFIED of that Name, because it represents to them their humiliating DEFEAT at Jesus' Resurrection.

The Great Whore

The worst thing that a woman can be called is a whore. These prostituted, adulteresses, have been around for centuries, engaged in the orgy of unbridled sexual behavior...known as ''the world's oldest profession''. While the Bible does mention two of these...Rahab (Joshua 2-6), and the sinful woman (John 8:10-11)...and both of these experienced God's Amazing Grace...the subject of this poem is ''The Great Whore'' (Revelation 17:1-18). This counterfeit, apostate, ecumenical church, revealed after the Rapture, will be the Antichrist's Tool during the first part of The Great Tribulation...and this church will be comprised of all the worlds ''religions'', and those left behind after the Rapture, who choose to be a part of it. This church will be totally contrary to The Word Of God, as any emphasis on what Jesus Christ did for mankind will be removed from its doctrine. Then, sometime during The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace will destroy it, as he...literally, Satan incarnate...will demand worship as God. However, just as he destroys The Great Whore, he himself will be defeated and captured alive by Jesus Christ at His Second Coming...and The Lord will cast The Beast into The Lake Of Fire, along with his ally, the False Prophet. They will be joined later by Satan, his demonic hordes, and all those on Earth who refused God's Free Love Gift, in the Person of His Son, Jesus Christ...and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

Will I See You At Christ's Throne??

This pointed question is to everyone who reads this poetry collection that The Lord has graciously given me. Will I see you there at Christ's Throne, or will you not be there, because you chose to reject God's Free Love Gift??

A Reunion Like No Other

Many of us have been to family reunions in this life...but one day, there will be a reunion like no other. First, the Day Of Rapture, when all those who have died in the faith, having accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour...will be joined by all the saved who are alive and remain...to all meet Jesus Christ, the One who made it all possible...and these will never say ''goodbye'' again. Tragically, a reunion like no other also exists for those who choose to reject God's Free Love Gift, when instead of meeting who could have been their Best Friend in all Eternity...Christ will be The Worst Nightmare There Faced. At The Great White Throne Judgment, all the unsaved, evil souls that have ever lived, will be reunited with Satan, his demons, The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace (The Antichrist), and The False Prophet, and be sentenced to be tormented forever in the Lake Of Fire. Which reunion you'll be a part of is determined by whether or not you reject or accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

Two Feasts Of The Future

Based on Revelation 19:7-9, and 17-18, there are two feasts of the future...as different as night and day. First, the Marriage Supper Of The Lamb, where Jesus Christ, The Groom, serves His Bride, The Church, of all the redeemed saints from Pentecost to the Rapture, who accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. This feast is where everyone lives happily ever after. By contrast, ''The Feast Of Fools'' is the repugnant bloodbath carnage from the Battle Of Armageddon, where the worlds armies, try with demonic fury, to attack Jesus Christ and the Heavenly Host at Christ's Second Coming. With just a Word, the multitudes fall as one...dead...and the resulting quagmire of 200 miles is so great, that Christ calls the vultures and all the birds of the air to feast. Everyone will be part of one of these feasts...the first one where you will enjoy the food and fellowship, not having to worry about getting sick...and the second one so gross that the thought of it can make you sick!! It all depends on whether or not you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour before the Rapture...or whether you took the Mark Of The Beast, Eternally damning yourself to the Lake Of Fire with Satan, his demonic hordes, and all the others who refused to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

The Last Person Saved

God has always had a ''Divine Quota'' of how many would be saved before His Judgment fell upon the Earth. It was Noah, his wife, their three sons, and their wives prior to the Great Flood (Genesis 6-9), Lot and his two daughters prior to the fiery destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 18:20-19:29)(although Lot's daughters got him into a drunken, incestuous relationship afterwards), and all the saved from Pentecost (Acts 2) to the Rapture of The Church (I Corinthians 15:51-55). And, once that last person in God's Quota has been reached, God will remove His Believers, and Judgment will fall quickly. Each soul saved counts toward that total, and only God knows who the last person is. While you may or may not actually be the last person to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and reach that quota...being part of that quota that will be removed before the Judgment falls is much better than being left behind to face the Judgment of Almighty God.

There Is No Second Chance

Contrary to what you may have heard, there is NO SECOND CHANCE after death to make the decision to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Once the threshhold of Eternity is crossed, if you failed to make that all important decision, it'll be one that you'll regret for all Eternity. You'll realize seconds after you enter the torment of Hell, that Jesus Christ died to save you from that tragic fate...if you had only accepted what He had done for you. And, while some have gone to Hell for a very brief time, then returned...that happening is EXTREMELY RARE...and it's NOT worth gambling with your eternal soul. Plus, reincarnation is another lie from the Pit Of Hell...as Hebrews 9:27 notes It's Appointed All To Die, and after this, The Judgment. If you do nothing, and end up in torment, you'll wish there was a second chance...but tragically realize that it will never come.

Who Is Jesus??

This is a question that EVERYONE must answer...as you WILL stand before Him one day. Some say He was just a man, others say a prophet, and some think ''Jesus is a curse word''. Truth be told, He is The Son Of God, The Creator Of The Universe, The King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, The Saviour Of The World. and The Judge Of All Mankind. Depending on how you answered that question while here on Earth (Lip Service Isn't Good Enough), will determine whether He will be your Best Friend in all Eternity...or the most Terrifying Person you will ever face.

Not In A Hurry

With the rapid pace of life today, it's hard to believe that there are two things that people are NOT in a hurry to do...accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour...and die. Now is the time, today is the day of salvation...for life is like a vapor, and it can end suddenly, without warning. And, after death, it'll be too late to make that decision for Jesus Christ...and the eternal torment the unsaved will endure in the Lake Of Fire will never end.

It's Appointed All To Die

Based on Hebrews 9:27, because of the sin of our first parents, Adam and Eve, in the Garden Of Eden (Genesis 3), it is appointed to all to die, and after this, judgment. Except for those who have by faith, accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, who are alive and remain at the Rapture, all mankind one day will die, and face The Lord in Judgment. Those in the faith who are alive at the Rapture, will be changed without having to experience ''The Wages Of Sin''...physical death. However, everyone will face Jesus Christ at The Judgment...at the Judgment Seat Of Christ, if they've accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour...or at The Great White Throne if they've rejected Him.

The Effectual Fervent Prayer

Based on James 5:16, ''the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails (accomplishes) much''. God Almighty has given His Children the Wonderful Privilege of Prayer, in direct communication and fellowship with Him, The Creator Of The Universe, anytime and anywhere. I have personally heard many, many instances of answered prayer, and have experienced it firsthand as well. While The Lord answers prayer in His Time, and NOT ours...we have to bring it to Him, by faith, to the Throne Of Grace, and LEAVE IT THERE. No matter what the situation or need...no mattier how small, trivial, minor, or major...including the Sinners Prayer ...The Lord is ready and willing to answer the prayers of His Children. Have you prayed that Sinners Prayer as well?? He has the time to hear you, and answer you, if you will come to Him in repentance and faith, if you do so before The Moment Of Your Death.

The Moment Of Your Death

No one knows the exact moment when they will die. And, at the moment of your death, which can come suddenly, and without warning (some literally ''drop dead''), you'll instantly go to one of two places...either Heaven, if you've repented of your sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour...or Hell, if you refused God's Free Love Gift.

Other Gospels Preached

Based on Galatians 1:7-9, if anyone preaches another Gospel...besides Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son, who left the Glory Of Heaven, to come to Earth, to be born of a Virgin, to live and walk among mankind in all ways, except without sin, was crucified for the sins of all mankind on an Old Rugged Cross, was resurrected on the third day according to the Scriptures, and is coming back one day to rule and reign in Power and Glory...let him be cursed. God inspired the prophet Jeremiah to write ''Cursed are they that do the Lord's Work deceitfully''. Satan has for centuries deceived billions...saying that there are many ways to Heaven. But, the truth is that if the Gospel that is preached is NOT what is in God's Holy Word, then it is a FALSE Gospel. These include ''gospels'' which do not preach against sin, those that teach that ''your church, or your works will save you'', that ''God owes you Heaven'', ''name it and claim it'', the ''prosperity gospel'', etc. If you accept this rather than the Truth, you will be in for a rude awakening at The Moment Of Your Death.

What Must I Do To Be Saved??

Based on Acts 16:30-31, the simple answer to this question that everyone must answer, determines whether they go to Heaven Or Hell when they die. As the jailer asked Paul and Silas, ''What Must I Do To be Saved??''...Paul's reply ''Believe on The Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved''. This belief is MORE than ''lip service''...it means turning from a life of sin, admitting that you're a sinner, you can't save yourself, and you ask Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son, to forgive your sin, to come into your heart and life, as your Lord and Saviour...and then you serve Him with all your heart and life.

The One Thing God Requires

Based on John 6:29, the one thing that God requires is to ''believe on the One He has sent''...in the person of His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ. While He didn't have to do it, Christ left the Glory Of Heaven, to come to Earth, be born of a Virgin, and live like us in all ways, except without sin. Christ suffered and died in the place of you and me...on that Old Rugged Cross for every sin we'd ever commit. His Resurrection sealed the victory over sin and death, and this will be yours as well...if you have that one thing God requires When You Stand Before The Lord on Judgment Day.

The Gospel In A Nutshell

Based on John 3:16-18, the Gospel (Good News) is that ''God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Son (the Lord Jesus Christ), that whoever would believe on Him would not die (spiritually), but have eternal life. God sent Christ into the world not to condemn it, but that the world through Him would be saved. Whoever believes on (accepts) Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour is not condemned, but those who don't are condmened already''. People try to add to the simplicity of the Gospel, and what it takes to get into Heaven...when The One Thing God Requires is to believe on the One He has sent. For those who refuse to accept God's Free Love Gift, they will see that they're The One To Blame on Judgment Day.

Without Excuse

Based on Romans 1:20, all Creation declares God's Glory. Having read The Gospel In A Nutshell through this Gospel Poetry Collection, you are now WITHOUT EXCUSE, and you will NOT be able to say that ''you have never heard The Gospel'', when you stand before The Lord Jesus Christ on Judgment Day. If you do not make a decision to repent of your sin, and to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, while you're alive on Earth... you will tragically be part of Those Not In God's Kingdom, and spend Eternity in The Lake Of Fire, with Satan, his demonic hordes, and all of mankind who refused God's Free Love Gift.

Zip, Zero, Zilch

These three words ''signify nothing''...the value of all you've gained in life at The Moment Of Your Death. The Pharoahs of old have had their tombs looted, and the wealthiest millionaires on Earth who have died, are in their graves without one thin dime (never mind a wooden nickel) in their hands. The only thing you can take into Eternity is if you've accepted God's Free Love Gift...by repenting of your sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour...plus any works done solely to win souls into His Kingdom, and doing works for His Glory. As someone once so eloquently put it, ''All this life will soon be past...just what's done for Christ will last''.

A Letter From The Lord

Just as to the seven churches in Revelation, The Bible is God's Letter to mankind, concerning His Plan Of Redemption for the sinner. Whether you go to the blessings of Heaven...or to the torments of Hell at your death...is determined by whether you accept or reject the contents of the letter...and whether or not you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

The Only Thing That Matters

When You Stand Before The Lord, there will be only one thing that matters most...whether or not you accepted God's Free Love Gift, in the person of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Where you will spend Eternity is determined upon your decision.

The Last Laugh

There is a saying that ''He who laughs last, laughs best''...and everyone likes to have ''the last laugh''. However, from an eternal standpoint, The Lord will have the last laugh, the final say in things...including where you spend Eternity...depending on your acceptance or rejection of what He did for you on Calvary.

The Five Eternal Crowns

The Bible records that at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ, five eternal crowns await those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. They are The Crown Of Victory...for those who have overcome their fleshly, sinful desires... The Crown Of Rejoicing...for those who have shared their faith, witnessing for Christ at every opportunity, and have won souls to God's Kingdom...The Crown Of Righteousness...for those who are Loving The Appearing Of The Lord, eagerly anticipating The Rapture, and The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ... The Crown Of Life...to those who suffer and die for their faith...and The Crown Of Glory...for those men called to preach God's Holy Word, who serve Christ in love and humility, as a preacher of a congregation. However, if you refuse to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and serve Him in the way noted to earn these crowns...or are just Going Through The Motions, as People Who Are Christians Just In Name, the amount of these crowns that you will receive is Zip, Zero, Zilch.

By Their Fruits, You'll Know Them

Based On Matthew 7:16-20, the true test of peoples motives are what they produce in their lives. Just as a good tree can not produce bad fruit...and a bad tree can not produce good fruit...those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, produce things pleasing to The Lord. Those who are just Going Through The Motions...or who have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour...will one day, be like the bad trees that are cut down, and cast into the Fire. When The Lord examines ''the roots'' of the tree of your life, will He find them stained with sin, or washed clean by His Blood?? The result determines where you will spend Eternity.

The Eternal Square

One of my other hobbies, square dancing, brings to mind verses from Psalms 149:3...''Let us Praise His Name in the dance''...and 2 Samuel 6:14...''David danced before The Lord with all his might''. Several dancers have gone on to be with The Lord...and He, Christ Jesus, The Master Caller for our lives, wants you to repent of your sin, accept Him as Lord and Saviour...and to join The Eternal Square that will never break down, and as the song says, ''the circle won't be broken''.

Your Sin Will Find You Out

Based On Numbers 32:23, whatever sin you do, you will have to answer for it one day...and you will be found out about it. Whether in this life, or at The Judgment, there will be No Question Of Guilt as to the sins in your life. Will you repent of your sin, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, to have Him pay for your sins?? Or will you pay for them yourself forever in The Lake Of Fire??

Hell Was Meant For Satan

Based on Matthew 25:41, it must be fairly stated that Hell was meant for Satan and his demons...and NOT for mankind. Tragically, many will end up here, because they refused to Accept Jesus Christ As Their Lord And Saviour. God does NOT send anyone to Hell...they go there of their own free will and choice. Since sin of any kind can not enter Heaven, everyone who has not had their lives cleansed by the Blood Of Jesus Christ, will end up in this terrible place of never ending torment. Hell will eventually be cast into The Lake Of Fire...along with Death (the last enemy to be destroyed)... Satan...his demonic hordes...the Antichrist (The Beast)...The False Prophet...and every unregenerate person who has ever lived. If you do nothing, in regards to a decision for Jesus Christ, you'll end up here...the choice is yours.

You Can Believe, Or Be Deceived

To get to Heaven, the ONLY way is to believe, and accept by faith, that Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son, left Heaven's Glory, to come to Earth, to die in place of everyone who would ever live, for every sin they would commit...that He would rise again on the third day after his Crucifixion...that He's coming back in Power and Glory to reign...that He is the ONLY way to Heaven...that you must repent (turn) from your sin, and ask Christ to forgive your sin, and come into your life as your Lord and Saviour. Or, you can let yourself be deceived by Satan, into thinking that there are many ways to Heaven...and that it's ''owed'' to you. The thing is...One Day, On Bended Knee...EVERYONE...including Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone who has ever lived on Earth...will bow on their knees before Jesus Christ, and declare Him King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, to the Glory Of God The Father. The choice is yours...you can believe the simple truth of God's Word...or be deceived into accepting Satan's lie...the latter you will regret for all Eternity.

I Wonder What The Lost Will Say

On Judgment Day, everyone who refused God's Free Love Gift, will stand before Jesus Christ, who will judge them to The Lake Of Fire for all Eternity ...with Satan and his demonic hordes. Those there will undoubtedly offer every kind of reason and excuse imaginable as to why they should not be there. But, every thought, word, and deed, will be replayed...including the times they had the chance to make A Decision For Christ, and turned it down. In short, they'll be Without Excuse, and they'll have to confess the justice of their sentence. If you do nothing in regards to making A Decision For Jesus Christ, you'll tragically be part of this group as well.

Sin Is Like A Cancer

Sin, just like cancer, spreads rapidly. Ever since our first parents, Adam and Eve, rebelled in The Garden Of Eden, sin permeated the entire human race. It took the proper diagnosis from The Lord Jesus Christ, The Great Physician, who would ''perform surgery'' on His Creation, and die on an Old Rugged Cross for every sin committed...and be resurrected on The Third Day, according to the Scriptures, to ''cure the patient''. The thing is, if you refuse to take this ''Divine Prescription'' of repenting of your sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour...just like cancer will bring death physically...unforgiven sins will bring death spiritually...and eternal punishment in The Lake Of Fire.

License To Serve; Not License To Sin

For those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, while all of the sins that we have done, or will ever do, are paid for...that we have been forgiven for them, and are now under ''no condemnation from God'', it is NOT a license for us to sin. It is a license to serve...in gratitude to The Lord for what He did for us, as we can never repay Him for Him dying in our place on The Old Rugged Cross of Calvary. However, for those who have not yet made that decision for Christ, God's wrath is still upon you...and you have no guarantee that tomorrow will come, where you can make that decision for Christ. For, if you don't accept Him, you AUTOMATICALLY reject Him.

God Is Angry With The Wicked

Based on Psalms 7:11, God is angry with the wicked every day. That includes all of those ALIVE AT THIS VERY MOMENT, who have not accepted His Free Love Gift, in the Person of His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ. His Wrath burns toward the unsaved RIGHT NOW, and it will be INTENSIFIED if they die without Christ...and they will experience His Wrath for all Eternity in The Lake Of Fire. Conversely, for those who HAVE received God's Free Love Gift, while they still have their ''sin nature'', there is NO CONDEMNATION to those in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1)...to these who have repented of their sin, and have asked Jesus Christ to come into their lives as their Lord and Saviour...as the ONLY way to Heaven.

Nothing That Defiles

In contrast to all the disgusting and dirty things we see on Earth...in Heaven, there will be nothing that defiles. No trash, disease, death, pain, sickness, waste, or sin of any kind, will be there. Only those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour will share in the blessings that God has for His Children. All those who refuse to accept that Free Gift, will not be there...nor will remembrance of them be brought to mind.

The Home Of The Damned

Unlike the Glory Of Heaven, where there will be eternal joy, blessing, and Nothing That Defiles...The Home Of The Damned will be a place of never ending torture, pain, suffering, demonic taunting, and being alone for all Eternity. There will be no one there to comfort or console any of the unregenerate there...and all those who refuse to accept God's Free Love Gift will spend Eternity here, starting at The Moment Of Their Death...and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

If You Reject The Lord

Tragically, there may be some reading this Gospel Poetry collection, who have no intention of repenting of their sin, and accepting God's Free Love Gift...and they regard this entire collection as ''trash''. However, if you choose to reject The Lord, you'll see that you're The One To Blame upon The Moment Of Your Death. Your eternal punishment...in all its horror...is described in this, and many other poems in this collection. The Lord Has No Pleasure In The Death Of Those Who Die in their sin...and I would be considered Betrayed before you, if I didn't share God's Goodness with you. I also want your answer to the question of Will I See You At Christ's Throne? to be YES. I personally was right where you are right now, in March, 1978. Jesus Christ died for ALL people...all races, all backgrounds, all cultures, all religions...and No One Else But Jesus will get you to Heaven. Please don't be one of those that rejects The Lord, and is denied Heaven's Eternal Joy. The Price Of Being Wrong is far too great for you to pay.

You'll Answer Only For Yourself

When You Stand Before The Lord on Judgment Day, you'll ONLY have to answer for what you did...NOT what someone else did in their lives. And, every person will have to answer whether or not they accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Both those who have...and for those who haven't...will still have to give an account of their lives at The Judgment before Jesus Christ.

It'll Be A Shock One Day

To the enemies of The Lord throughout history, it truly will be a shock one day, when He again intervenes in the affairs of mankind. First, at the Rapture Of The Church...then during The Time Of Jacob's Trouble...with the Two Witnesses, and the 144,000 Jews that have been sealed to preach the Gospel...and ultimately at His Second Coming...when He takes His Chosen People, the Jews...and all the others who have accepted Him as Lord and Saviour, as His Own. To all those who rejected Him, in favor of another religion, or otherwise...they will be shocked to find out...tragically too late...that they will NOT be allowed to enter His Millenium Of Peace...but are instead sentenced to eternal damnation in The Lake Of Fire. No One Else But Jesus will get you to Heaven....and what you do with Him determines where you will go at The Moment Of Your Death.

The Book Of Life

Just as Precious as God's Holy Word, The Bible, is...there is The Book Of Life. This book, has written in it, the names of everyone who has ever been born into the world. If by the time the person dies, they have NOT accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, their names are REMOVED from The Book Of Life. During the Great Tribulation, those who Take The Mark Of The Beast (Revelation 13:18), will have their names IMMEDIATELY REMOVED from The Book Of Life. At The Judgment, The Book Of Life will be opened. Your name is NOT GUARANTEED to be in there...UNLESS you have repented of your sin, and by faith, accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Those names that are in there, will have eternal blessedness in Heaven...while those whose names are not, will have eternal torment in The Lake Of Fire, The Home Of The Damned.

Grace Through Faith, And Not Of Works

Based on Ephesians 2:8-9, we are saved by Grace Through Faith, the undeserved Gift Of God, and NOT of works, lest anyone should boast, and be proud. All of our good deeds are as bloody menstrual cloths (filthy rags), and all our sins are as scarlet. But, when we repent of our sins, and accept by faith, that Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son, left Heaven's Glory to come to Earth, to be born of a Virgin, live like us in all ways (but without sin), die like a criminal on an Old Rugged Cross, to pay for every sin we'd ever commit, to rise from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, to ascend to Heaven after 40 days...plus, is interceding for us now as Our Passover And Mediator, and is coming back to Rapture all those who've accepted Him as Saviour and Lord, by His Grace through Faith...our sins become white as snow. Those who preach that salvation is ''grace through faith plus something else (works or otherwise)'' are preaching a FALSE MESSAGE. God's Standard is Perfection...and except for His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ...NO ONE CAN PAY IT. And, When You Stand Before The Lord, if you have The One Sin Unforgiven on your record...of not accepting God's Free Love Gift, of Salvation by Grace Through Faith, And Not Of Works...you will spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned, The Lake Of Fire, for all Eternity.

The Fool Says ''There's No God''

Based On Psalms 14:1,3 - God's Word says that ''the fool has said in his heart, ''there is no God''''. Tragically, Satan and his demonic hordes have spiritually blinded millions throughout history...when yet, all Creation declares the Glory Of God. To those who deny Him now, God calls them ''fools''...and One Day, On Bended Knee...all those who have accepted Him...and even those who have denied Him...will confess that ''Jesus Christ Is Lord''...to the Glory Of God The Father (Phillippians 2:10-11). Those who've REFUSED God's Free Love Gift will be cast into The Lake Of Fire...The Home Of The Damned...to be tormented for all Eternity. Those who've ACCEPTED that same Gift, will rule and reign with Christ...with blessings...for all Eternity.

God's Words Live Forever, Friend

Based on Matthew 24:35, while mankind speaks, and his words die...God's Words live forever. In fact, while Heaven and Earth will cease to exist one day...God's Words will not pass away. You may forget the words that another human being spoke to you. But, God's Words are a witness about your need to repent of your sin, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour...and God will not let you forget them. For if you die without making a decision for Christ, these words will be brought back to your memory for all Eternity...and you will curse yourself forever for refusing God's Free Love Gift.

If You Take The Mark

After the Rapture Of The Church, the world will enter The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, The Great Tribulation. The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace, the most evil person the world has ever known, will institute a ''mark'' that everyone will have to take if they want to buy, sell, or hold a job. Those who take this mark will be guilty of ''The Selling Of Ones Soul to Satan'', guaranteeing them the events in this poem...from painful, loathsome sores...to scorpion like stings from creatures from the sky...to death fleeing from them when they try to commit suicide...to their eternal doom and burning forevermore in The Lake Of Fire, with the Antichrist, The False Prophet, Satan, his demonic hordes, and all the other unregenerate people who have ever lived. By contrast to all those who take this mark (of which, the decision is irrevocable)...there will be many who will accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour...and they will refuse to take this mark. This decision will ''cut them off from economic survival''...and they will be hunted down...and likely captured, imprisoned, tortured, and martyred (likely beheaded) for their faith. But these will rule and reign with Christ for a thousand years during His Millenial Kingdom...and they will join all of the redeemed in eternal blessings. Which group will you be part of??

The Freedom Of Religion

The Freedom Of Religion was one of the reasons that the forefathers of America broke away from the rule of England, and set sail for the shores of America. They wanted the freedom to worship God, as dictated by His Precious Word, and Holy Spirit...and not be forced into some ritual by the rules and decrees of sinful man. Tragically, many think this should be ''Freedom From Religion''; where they won't ever have to answer to God. But, The Lord applies this ''Freedom Of Religion'' to a choice that all mankind must make...to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, or to reject Him. And whatever choice is made, Your Decision Will Be Honored for Eternity...the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in Heaven...or the eternal torment in The Lake Of Fire, for those rejecting God's Free Love Gift.

Justice Will Be Done

Ever since mankind sinned against The Lord in The Garden Of Eden, it seems that innocent people, as well as the righteous individuals serving The Lord...and even unborn children who were victims of abortion...always got ''the short end of the stick''...where those against The Lord appeared to constantly have the upper hand...benefitting from their crimes against the innocent. But, one day soon, justice WILL be done. All those who did evil against The Lord and His Children, will receive the punishment they deserve; and those who accepted Christ as Saviour, and suffered for The Lord in this life, will be recipients of immeasurable blessings...and eternal fellowship with The Holy Trinity, throughout Eternity.

His Truth Refused, God Sends Delusion

Based on 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12, after The Rapture Of The Church...because mankind refused to believe the simple Truth of God's Word through the ages, He will send them strong delusion, that they will believe a lie with all their hearts. Then, God will judge these for rejecting the Truth, and believing the lie. The Lord is basically ''giving mankind over to a reprobate mind'' (Romans 1:28)...they'll be Given What Was Desired. However, mankind's insatiable appetite for sin and ''unrighteous pleasure'' will never be satisifed. The climax of 21 Divine Judgments of the Seals, Bowls, And Trumpets will result in The Coming Of Christ to Earth to set everything right, where Justice Will Be Done. If you refuse to accept Christ as your Lord and Saviour before The Rapture Of The Church, you will be exposed to this delusion. If you accept the lie, and If You Take The Mark, you will suffer never ending torment in The Lake Of Fire for all Eternity.

You Can't Fool The Lord, My Friend

You may consider yourself as sneaky and crafty, fooling everyone by the life you live...going to church, being benevolent, etc. to impress people. While you may fool everyone else by what you are doing...as Going Through The Motions, you can NOT fool The Lord. He knows your motives, words, and thoughts, and you will answer for everything you've ever done, said, and thought, When You Stand Before The Lord one day. You will be Without Excuse, as there will be No Question Of Guilt for your actions.

Lip Service Isn't Good Enough

Many people think that just because they give Jesus Christ ''lip service''...being a Christian in ''name only''...that's all they need to enter Heaven. However, unless you have repented of your sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you will be one of those who will hear Him say ''For You, I've Never Known''...before you are cast into The Lake Of Fire, to be tormented for all Eternity.

Your Decision Will Be Honored

Your decision here on Earth to either accept or reject Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, will also be honored in Eternity. Those who repent of their sins, and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour while they were on Earth, will instantly go to Heaven upon The Moment Of Their Death...receiving a new resurrection body at the Rapture Of The Church, and spend Eternity in Heaven, with eternal joy. By contrast, those who choose to reject Jesus Christ, while they were here on Earth, will go to The Home Of The Damned at The Moment Of Their Death...first to the torments of Hell, then to The Lake Of Fire, to suffer for all Eternity. God won't force you to accept His Free Love Gift, in the Person of His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ. That decision is entirely up to you.

God's Word Is Not Here To Tickle Your Ears

Like it or not, the title says it all. God's Word is not here to tickle your ears...but to convict you of sin, and how to live as you should before Him. Tragically, many churches would rather preach ''a candy-coated, social gospel'', to avoid offending their congregations...instead of preaching the uncompromising Word Of God...calling sin as sin...and not changing God's Word to suit their desires, and what their ears want to hear. And, while The Lord has graciously given me all the poems in this collection...the poems, and His Word CONVICT ME OF MY SIN ON A DAILY BASIS, and my need to go to Christ, confessing my sin, repenting of it, and receiving the forgiveness that was obtained for not only me...but for all mankind...when Christ Jesus died on that Old Rugged Cross. However, one has to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour to obtain that forgiveness... it is NOT automatically granted to you. And, God can tell your motives...whether you are sincere...or if you're just Going Through The Motions.

Touching the Apple Of God's Eye

Based On Zachariah 2:3, whoever touches Israel, God's Nation on Earth, touches the Apple Of God's Eye. As God told Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3, those who bless and pray for Israel and the Jews will be blessed by God...both now, and in the future. And likewise, those who curse Israel and the Jews will be cursed by God...both now, and in the future. Every nation of the world rises or falls, depending on how they treat Israel...and God's People. And, When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, Israel will be where Christ's Millenium Of Peace will be based. One day, all of Israel will be saved, and recognize Jesus Christ as her Messiah. But, for those not part of Israel...Jesus Christ wants to be your Messiah as well...not to mention your Lord and Saviour. And, whether you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, or reject Him...will be just as how you treated His Chosen People...especially during The Time Of Jacob's Trouble...the period before When Christ Returns To Planet Earth. You'll either be receiving blessing...or torment...for all Eternity. The choice, is yours.

There Will Be No Appeal There

At The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, all of those who have ever lived...who refused to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, will have their lives reviewed...in thought, word, and deed. Whether in secret, or in the open...every thing they've ever thought, said, or done, will be seen by all...the good, the bad, and the ugly. God's Standard Is Perfection, and the verdict pronounced there, is FINAL...so there will be NO APPEAL. None of these can meet that Righteous Standard Of Perfection... although many will try to plead their case, but No One Will Defend The Lost. And, Christ will tell them that ''For You, I've Never Known''. You can avoid being part of this group, who will be sentenced to eternal suffering in The Lake of Fire, by repenting of your sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Saviour. However, no one can make this decision for you...and if you fail to make the decision, you will tragically end up with this group.

No Degree Of Sin Exists

While mankind thinks there are ''degrees'' of sin...such as a lie isn't as big a sin as killing someone...in God's Eyes, ALL SIN IS THE SAME. Just ONE SIN WILL KEEP YOU OUT OF HEAVEN, and The One Sin Unforgiven on your record is your failure to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

They Couldn't Look Upon Christ There

There were times in history, where individuals could not look upon the face of Christ...because of His Righteousness and Power. The Lord declared that ''no one shall see My Face, and live''...although He allowed Moses to ''see Him from the back...while Moses hid in the Cleft Of The Rock, The Lord passed by''. When Jesus came to Earth to die for our sins, He said that ''He who has seen Me has seen The Father''. At His Crucifixion, His visage was so marred from the Blood shed, that no one could look on Him. At His Resurrection, Satan and his demonic hordes could not look on Christ, as they realized their eternal doom was now sealed. At Christ's Second Coming, those on Earth who took The Mark Of The Beast will not be able to look on Christ...and neither will those at The Great White Throne Judgment...as The Lord comes in Righteous Judgment...taking vengeance on all who rejected Him. By repenting of your sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you will be able to look on Him, without fear. The ultimate choice, however...is up to you.

The Lord Is Not Politically Correct

In the world today, people talk about being ''politically correct''...not offending anyone, tolerating all religions, there are many ways to Heaven, etc. However, as the title of this poem says, The Lord is NOT politically correct. His Word NEVER CHANGES...and it is The Only Thing That Matters. Like it or not, there are things Hated By The Lord...and you have the choice to accept Christ as your Lord and Saviour, or to reject Him. Your Eternal Destiny depends on your choice.

Righteousness Exalts A Nation

Based on Proverbs 14:34, a nation that is righteous is exalted...but sin is a reproach to any people. If a nation lives by God's Laws, they will be blessed...but if they spurn God's Words, He will remove the blessings, and place judgment on that nation. And, this applies to you individually as well. God will not approve of a life of sin on Judgment Day, and He will send you to The Lake Of Fire, to be tormented forever. But, if your life is righteous...only by your repenting of sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as Your Lord And Saviour, God will lift you up, where you'll experience His Blessings for all Eternity.

As In The Days Of Noah

Based on Matthew 24:37, the world we live in today is just as in the days of Noah...and in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah...when the wickedness of mankind will cause God's Righteus Judgment to fall one day...when it's least expected. However, you can escape the judgment by repenting of your sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as Your Lord And Saviour.

Repent And Receive, Or Reject And Regret

While God won't force you to make the decision to accept Jesus Christ as Your Lord And Saviour, you can either repent of your sin, and receive God's Free Love Gift...or you can reject it, and regret that choice for all Eternity.

The Majority Was Wrong

Just as in the case of the story of people jumping off a bridge...just because the majority does it, does not make it right. And, it has been that way through history...with the majority of mankind WRONG time and time again, concerning things of The Lord. Don't be part of the majority who is wrong, who will choose to reject God's Free Love Gift.

The True Hate Crime Committed There

Down through history, mankind considers The Preaching Of The Cross, and God's Warning Of His Coming Judgment against their sin as a ''hate crime''. Truth be told, these who have not yet repented of their sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, do NOT want to hear that they're headed for The Judgment, to The Home Of The Damned. Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Our Lord And Saviour would be guilty of a ''hate crime'' if we did NOT warn of God's Judgment. It is because we do NOT want our fellow man and woman to burn forever in The Home Of The Damned, as the reason WHY we are giving the warning. If God gave the warning to us before we repented of our sin...as His Children now, we can do no less in warning those who still have not chosen God's Free Love Gift.

The Sinner And the Sin

It must be fairly stated that, while The Lord has always loved mankind...even though ALL of us are sinners (since the rebellion of our first parents, Adam and Eve, in the Garden Of Eden)...The Lord DOES NOT...and CAN NOT ACCEPT our sinful behavior; For All Have Sinned, and come short of the Glory Of God. Whether you've broken one or more of The Commandments Ten, or any other part of God's Holy, Righteous, Perfect Law...if you have The One Sin Unforgiven on your record When You Stand Before The Lord at The Judgment, He will have no choice, but to send you to The Home Of The Damned. The ultimate decision where you spend Eternity is up to you.

God's Standard Is Perfection

At The Judgment before Jesus Christ, the standard for ANYONE to enter Heaven will be to have lived a life of PERFECTION in thought, word, and deed. And, at anytime in your life...if you broke only ONE of God's Laws...whether you thought about it, or actually did the deed...you are GUILTY of breaking ALL of God's Laws!! With mankind's sin nature, and propensity to rebel against God, the ONLY way to Heaven, and how one can achieve this PERFECTION is to repent of our sin, and by faith, accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Otherwise, NO ONE CAN PAY THEIR SIN DEBT...and you will spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned, if you choose to reject what Jesus Christ did for you on The Rugged Cross Of Calvary...as you will end up having The One Sin Unforgiven on your record.

From Within, The Nations Fell

All thoughout history, all nations haven't fallen from attack from outside forces...but from forces within. And, just as all nations have fallen before The Lord...you too, will fall like them, unless you repent of sin, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

There Will Be No Less Days

Our lives on Earth are TEMPORARY...and upon The Moment Of Your Death, you go either to Heaven Or Hell... Your Eternal Destiny determined by whether or not you accepted Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Saviour. And, once you have entered either one of these places...no matter how many days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries, or millenia go by... there are NO LESS DAYS of your being in either the torment of The Lake Of Fire...or the peace, joy, and blessedness of Heaven.

Salvations Roman Road

One of the most ''popular'' and ''easy'' ways to present the Plan Of Salvation is through ''The Roman Road''. This is so named, as it takes verses primarily from the Epistle (Letter) to the Romans, written by the Apostle Paul, who The Lord inspired to write much of the New Testament portion of the Bible. It basically notes that:

1) All have sinned, and fallen short of God's Glory.

2) There is none righteous on the Earth.

3) The wages of sin is death (physical and spiritual), but the Gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ.

4) God commanded His Love toward us, in that while were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

5) If you confess with your mouth The Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

6) Whoever calls upon The Name Of The Lord, in faith, will be saved.

7) The saved are justified through faith in Jesus Christ.

8) There is no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus.

9) Once saved, nothing in this life can separate us from The Love Of God.

Of all the roads you may travel in journey of life, a trip down Salvations Roman Road, and what you do with the signs along the way, will determine Your Eternal Destiny at The Moment Of Your Death.


For You, I've Never Known

Based on Matthew 7:23, at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, when all of mankind who refused God's Free Love Gift, they will hear the HORRIFYING words from Jesus Christ Himself, ''Depart From Me, For You I've Never Known''...in response to their reply that ''But, Lord...we did all these things in Your Name''. However, those who receive God's Free Love Gift through Salvations Roman Road, and The Sinners Prayer, they will not be at this judgment, and won't hear those words. Which group will you be in??

Perilous Times

Based On 2 Timothy 3:1-5, this tells how ''perilous times'' have seemingly existed since Lucifer's rebellion in Heaven, and that continues to this day. In the final days before The Coming Of Christ to Earth, this tells how the majority of mankind will behave. For those who accept God's Free Love Gift...while they may not escape the perilous times on Earth, they will escape them for Eternity.

They Would Not Repent

A companion to For You Would Not Allow It, this poem also tells why certain people will be part of Those Not In God's Kingdom. Despite all the warnings from The Lord of The Judgment that awaits all mankind, these would not repent from their lives of sin. And, youll see that you're The One To Blame When You Stand Before The Lord one day, if you're part of this group.

The Horror In Their Eyes

Throughout history, when God's enemies saw The Lord intervene...rendering their plans for naught...one could see the horror in their eyes. Tragically, at death...it will be like that for all those rejected God's Free Love Gift...when they see the never ending, tormenting fires of Hell...and it'll be multiplied when they stand before The Lord at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne ...and when they realize they are about to be cast into The Lake Of Fire forever, where They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

These Three Are One

Based On 1 John 5:7 (which is removed or corrupted from most Bibles, except for the King James Version (1611) (for details, click here)), there are Three that bear record in Heaven...the Holy Trinity. God The Father, Jesus Christ The Son, and The Holy Spirit...and these Three are One. Jesus Christ was both God...and Man...and only God Himself would be able to take upon Himself the sins of all the world, die on an Old Rugged Cross, be raised from the dead the third day according to the Scriptures, and one day will return to Earth to rule and reign. Sadly, many people today...and most Bibles, deny this fact. And, they will answer for this one day, when they stand before The Lord.

I Worship Only Jesus Christ

Today, as in years past, mankind has worshipped ''everything under the sun''. These include statues, objects, idols, money, etc., both on Earth, in the sky, etc. They ''pray'' to these objects, hoping for help, protection, etc. But, as I Corinthians 10:20 notes, ''behind every idol is a demon''. Plus, the worship of these is idolatry, and as I Corinthians 6:9-10 notes, ''no idolator shall enter Heaven''. And, God's Word also notes in Exodus 20:4-5, ''you shall NOT bow down to these images or serve them''. The ONLY ONE WORTHY OF WORSHIP and the PRAISE is Jesus Christ, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, The Way, The Truth, The Life, and The ONLY Way To Heaven. Your Eternal Destiny hinges on who and what you worship.

Given What Was Desired

The Lord purposely created a desire in our hearts to love and worship Him. But, when rebellion came...first with Lucifier, the covering cherub...followed by a third of the angelic realm...then mankind...that desire turned into a void of emptiness, that only God can fill. Mankind's arrogance toward The Lord grew exponentially...wanting to do things his way instead of The Lord's way. So, God would give them what they desired...the consequences of their sin. And, unless you accept God's Free Love Gift, God will give you what is desired by your sin nature...eternal torment in The Lake Of Fire.

Behold, The Bridegroom Comes

Based on Matthew 25:6, the traditions of a Jewish Wedding also hold true in a spiritual sense, with The Church, The Bride of Christ...and The Lord Jesus Christ, The Groom. He will come at an unexpected time, at any moment, to Rapture His Bride to the Wedding. I have to confess that every time I read this, that as one who has accepted God's Free Love Gift, because The Lord, He Saved my life and soul...I GET EXCITED with anticipation of the IMMINENT Rapture of The Church. The only ones invited to this Special Wedding...and the Feast afterwards...will be those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Will you be part of this group, or will you be left behind, and locked out of the wedding feast??

The Mental Anguish Of The Lost

To the unsaved, the witness of God's Holy, Righteous Word ''causes them mental anguish''. Truthfully, it is the conviction of The Holy Spirit, that their heart, mind, and life, are not right before The Lord. To obtain true peace, they need to repent of their sin, and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. However, the mental anguish that they ''suffer'' in this life will pale in comparison to the mental anguish that they will suffer for all Eternity, in The Home Of The Damned, if they refuse God's Free Love Gift.

All Nations And All Peoples Judged One Day

Contrary to what the majority of the world's religions preach, It's Appointed All To Die, and after this, The Judgment. No matter what their background, race, or creed, everyone will stand before The Lord Jesus Christ one day to be judged. What they did with God's Free Love Gift will determine where they spend Eternity.

Inclusive, Yet Exclusive

These two words truly tell what Christianity is about. While the world sees Christianity as ''intolerant'', The Lord meant for the Gospel to be presented to EVERYONE...but, Sadly, Not All Will Repent. Christianity is the ONLY faith, where its founder died for it...as well as for all Creation...to cleanse it from the curse of sin. To those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, they will be part of the exclusive group that will, at The Moment Of Their Death, or at the Rapture Of The Church, enter the joy of Heaven, The Home Of The Redeemed, for Eternity. Those refusing to be part of this group will instead spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned, where They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

Intevention By The Lord

The Lord does not sit idly by, and let things happen, out of control. The Creator of the Universe, the Heavens, and The Earth, has set everything into motion to accomplish His Divine Plan and Will...and nothing escapes His Glance. When He has had to, numerous times through history, He has intervened in His Creation...to protect His People...to come and die for all mankind in the Person of His Son, Jesus Christ, to pay for mankind's sin...to raise Christ from the dead...to Rapture His Bride, The Church...to bring judgment, to return to Earth, and With A Rod Of Iron, Christ Will Rule the nations. The Lord Did All He Could To Save Your Soul, and He has done all He could do to bring to your attention your need to repent of sin, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour...the decision is now yours to make.

The Groaning Of Creation

Based on Romans 8:22, when The Lord cursed Creation because of Adam and Eve eating the forbidden fruit in the Garden Of Eden, Creations Paradise was quickly overrun...first by thorns, thistles, weeds, etc. -- and then by nature...with earthquakes, fires, floods, tornadoes, tidal waves, hurricanes, drought, intense heat, snow, blizzards, bitter cold, eclipses, and so much more...all because of the curse of sin. And, as Creation groans and travails, those who refuse God's Free Love Gift will groan and travail for all Eternity, as They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night. But, as Creation will be restored at The Coming Of Christ, you can have your spiritual life restored as well, by repenting of your sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Saviour.

The Glory Is Departed From The Land

Based on 1 Samuel 4:21-22, when the people of a nation continually refuse to hearken to The Lord and His Righteousness... effectively telling God ''they don't want Him around''...The Lord will one day oblige them...and they will be Given What Was Desired. Then, God's Glory...along with God's Protection will be REMOVED from that nation...making it ripe for The Judgment. And, if Judgment Must Begin in the House Of God, where does that leave those who have rejected Him?? Don't let God's Glory depart from you, as it has from most nations on the Earth. Repent of your sin, and by faith, accept Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Saviour TODAY, as Tomorrow Is Promised To No One. Because If You Wait Until It's Too Late...at The Moment Of Your Death, it will be TOO LATE to change your mind, and Your Eternal Destiny.

The Selling Of Ones Soul

Throughout history, Satan has used his lies of cunning and deceitfulness to ''give people whatever they want''...money, fame, glory, etc. -- all in exchange for the cost of selling their soul to him for all Eternity. Tragically, because of the sin of our first parents, Adam and Eve, in the Garden Of Eden...WE ALREADY BELONG TO SATAN, because of the inherited sin nature. So, in reality, any Deals With The Devil Are All Fake...you do NOT need one of these to go to The Lake Of Fire, and burn in torment for all Eternity, with Satan, his demonic hordes, The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace (the Antichrist), The False Prophet, and all the unregenerate, vile, evil men and women that have ever lived. If you refuse God's Free Love Gift, you will be paying the cost of selling your soul for all Eternity...with no hope of ever escaping The Home Of The Damned.

God's Judgment There When Least Expected

Despite warnings from God's People throughout history, the majority of mankind ignored them...and when it was least expected, God's Judgments fell. The locations ranged from the Garden Of Eden, when our first parents sinned...to the Flood Of Noah (which covered all of planet Earth)...to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah...to the ten Divine Plagues sent against Pharoah and Egypt through Moses...to the many times through Israel's history...to Christ's Death and Resurrection...to the Rapture Of The Church...to the destruction of the armies invading Israel (both before, and at Christ's Return)...and to The Judgment awaiting at The Moment Of Your Death. God's Ways are NOT our ways... and no one can know for sure the day and the hour these judgments will fall. But, as with those in times past...the ones yet to be fulfilled, will fall when least expected...and not a moment before The Lord has decreed that they occur. Don't let these judgments catch you by surprise...repent of your sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift...as There Is No Second Chance after The Moment Of Your Death to Make That Decision For Christ.

The Sinful Soul Will Not Prevail

Many times through history, it seems evil has the upper hand. But, one day, Justice Will Be Done, and it will be shown that the sinful soul will not prevail against The Lord Jesus Christ. Don't let Satan fool you into thinking you can win...because he himself knows that at the end, he will be cast into The Lake Of Fire, to be tormented for all Eternity...with The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace, the False Prophet, and everyone else who rejected God's Free Love Gift.

Everlasting Punishment, Or Life Eternal, There

Based on Matthew 25:46, at The Moment Of Your Death, you'll either enter everlasting punishment in The Lake Of Fire...or everlasting joy in Heaven. It won't be purgatory, soul sleep, or something else. What you did with God's Free Love Gift determines what you will receive. And, If You Wait Until It's Too Late, you won't have a chance to change your mind. Plus, There Are No Less Days in either the everlasting punishment...or the everlasting joy.

No One Gets Off Scot Free

A companion poem to A Life On Trial, no one gets off ''scot free'' before The Lord. Your Life Is Being Recorded, and everything will be played back at The Judgment before Jesus Christ. For All Have Sinned, and God's Standard Is Perfection. When You Stand Before The Lord...whether or not you have accepted God's Free Love Gift, you will give an account for everything you've thought, said, or done. While the saved will lose rewards at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ...the unsaved will lose far more at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne. What you do with Jesus Christ will determine which of these judgments you will be present at.

Vengeance Is The Lord's

Based On Romans 12:19, many people have felt they have been ''done wrong and dirty'' by others they have known in life. While man's sinful nature cries for revenge, the redeemed know that The Lord sees everything...whether in thought, word, or deed. And one day, Justice Will Be Done, when everyone stands before The Lord to give an account for their life. Vengeance belongs to The Lord...and to all those who have seemingly ''gotten the upper hand by evil deeds''...and for all those who have rejected God's Free Love Gift, He will repay them in kind.

No One Will Defend The Lost

Unlike in a modern day court of law, where the accused usually have a Defense Attorney...for those who refused God's Free Love Gift...no one will be there to defend them against the wrath of The Lord at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne. For whatever reason, these chose to come to God by the basis of their own righteousness...but God's Standard Is Perfection, and no one can pay it. Instead of being A Friend For Life...and for all Eternity...Jesus Christ is The Worst Nightmare There Faced. Every unrepentant soul there is cast into The Lake Of Fire, with Satan, and his demonic hordes...to be tormented forever. There are only two Choices you can make for Eternity...Heaven Or Hell. If you do ''nothing''...The Home Of The Damned will be yours upon The Moment Of Your Death.

All Scripture Given By The Lord

Based on 2 Timothy 3:16, every bit of God's Holy Word is Divinely Inspired...Perfect, and Without Error...in The Books Of The Bible, from Genesis through Revelation. It is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness. The King James Version (1611) is the only one that The Lord has Divinely Protected from tampering by Satan's evil hordes (for details, click here). Tragically, those who are guilty of The Changing Of God's Word, or even rejecting it...will suffer eternal torment in The Home Of The Damned...the same place for everyone who rejected God's Free Love Gift.

Just One Thing Will Save Your Soul

No matter what you've heard, only one thing will save your soul from The Lake Of Fire. God's Standard Is Perfection, For All Have Sinned, and all Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags. That being said, the one thing that describes God's Free Love Gift is that it's Grace Through Faith, And Not Of Works, by which you obtain salvation in Jesus Christ. While faith without works is dead, your works alone will NOT save your soul from The Home Of The Damned.

Resurrections Coming Soon

Based on John 5:28-29, you should not be surprised at the fact that one day soon, all those that are in the graves will hear The Lord's Voice, and all will be resurrected. Those who have done good...accepting God's Free Love Gift...to the resurrection of life...and to those who refuse it...to the resurrection of damnation. What you do with God's Free Love Gift determines which resurrection you will be at.

Thy Word Is Settled In Heaven

Based on Psalm 119:89, God's Word is settled in Heaven...and what He has promised that would happen...WILL...no matter what mankind says, believes, or thinks. The Lord Is In Control, of all things...and Your Eternal Destiny depends on what you do with God's Free Love Gift.

To Those Left Behind On Earth

A companion poem to Tragedy At Rapture, and Where Did They All Go?, this poem is for what to expect for those who miss the Rapture. The Time Of Jacob's Trouble will be a time of tribulation never seen on Earth...or will ever be again...and will in fact, be the last seven years of human history before The Coming Of Christ to Earth, and With A Rod Of Iron, Christ Will Rule the nations, during the Millenium Of Peace. Those left behind after the Rapture can still accept God's Free Love Gift...but they likely will be hunted down, captured, tortured, and killed (likely beheaded) for their faith.

Eagerly, Or Compelled

One Day, On Bended Knee, all will bow before Jesus Christ, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, at The Judgment. All those who accepted God's Free Love Gift will EAGERLY rush to bow before The Lord in Praise, as they'll be with Him forever in Heaven. Those who rejected Jesus Christ will be COMPELLED by the Truth Of God's Word to bow before The Lord. Tragically, for the latter, it'll be too late to escape their eternal sentence to The Home Of The Damned.

The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth

When Adam and Eve rebelled in The Garden Of Eden, the Lord pronounced a curse on all creation. That curse led to thorns and thistles in the ground, plagues, pestilences, earthquakes, bizarre weather patterns, and especially a sin nature to all humans who would ever be born. But, in the fullness of time, God's Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, left Heaven's Glory to come to Earth, to be born of a Virgin, to live and walk like all of us, except without any tinge of sin or guile. He chose to die on an Old Rugged Cross to redeem us...and ultimately, Creation...from this curse. The victory was gained by His Resurrection...and it will be realized When Christ Returns To Planet Earth. Whether or not you are freed from this curse Eternally, depends on whether you accept, or reject God's Free Love Gift.

Closer By The Second

Through Eternity, The Lord has ordained a moment for everything to occur. Nothing happens that does not escape his glance. And, with each passing moment, each instance on God's Divine Timetable is closer by the second...including The Moment Of Your Death, the Rapture Of The Church, and the moment When Christ Returns To Planet Earth. Only The Lord knows the exact moment when these occur, and if you choose to take The Gamble with your eternal soul, you will regret it Eternally...as Tomorrow Is Promised To No One, and Your Eternal Destiny is determined by what you do with God's Free Love Gift.

Absolutely Not

Many people have taken both man's laws, and God's Laws into their hands, in dealing with those who won't convert to their faith. They murder people involved in acts of sin, and threaten with torture and death, those who won't recant their present faith, to go to ''the religion'' of their captors. They even will go so far as to ''force a Bible down the throat of the unsaved''. While The One Thing God Requires is for mankind to ''believe on the One He Has Sent''...for us to repent of sin, and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour...God did NOT make us as robots...and He has given everyone the freedom to accept, or reject it. In short:

1) Should we take God's Laws into our own hands??

2) Should we murder those who are clearly involved in sin, such as abortion, homosexuality, etc., or encourage others to do such??

3) Should we force a Bible down the throats of the unsaved??

4) Should we not pray and witness to the lost, and let them burn in The Lake Of Fire??

5) Should we ignore making a decision for Jesus Christ??

The answer to all of these questions is ABSOLUTELY NOT!!...as Vengeance Is The Lord's.


The Battle Is The Lord's

Based on 2 Chronicles 20:15, when God's people have faced adversity that they could not overcome, when they called on The Lord in prayer and by faith, He stepped in, and won that battle for them. But, the most important battle you will face is for your eternal soul...and it was waged on The Old Rugged Cross of Calvary. The thing is, while The Lord won that battle with His Life, Death, and Resurrection, you can not obtain the victory laurels, unless you accept God's Free Love Gift.

The Rebels Won't Accept The Truth

Those who are united in rebellion against The Ways Of The Lord will tragically not accept The Truth that is in God's Holy Word...concerning their fate before The Lord. The Preaching Of The Cross is foolishness to these...but whether they want to admit, believe, or accept it or not...no one will escape The Judgment before The Lord Jesus Christ. What everyone does with God's Free Love Gift determines where they spend Eternity.

Decision Not Required To Go To Hell

Many people think they have to make a decision to go to The Home Of The Damned... first Hell...then The Lake Of Fire. Truth be told, no decision is required to go to Hell...but a decision IS REQUIRED to go to Heaven...in what you do with God's Free Love Gift.

Eternal Torment, Not A Joke

Many people think that the concept of eternal torment in Hell, and The Lake Of Fire is just a joke. Tragically, that is what Satan and his demonic hordes WANT you to believe...that no such places exist. But, it must be fairly stated that Hell Was Meant For Satan, and his demonic hordes...and NOT for mankind. However, God's Righteousness decrees that ''the soul that sins shall die''...and while His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, died on the Rugged Cross of Calvary to pay for every sin that would be committed...if you have The One Sin Unforgiven on your record...the sin of refusing to accept God's Free Love Gift, you will experience this eternal torment in The Home Of The Damned, starting with The Moment Of Your Death.

As Lightning Comes From East To West

Based on Matthew 24:27, as lightning strikes quickly...with little warning...so will the Rapture Of The Church, and The Coming Of Christ be. Although the warning of both the Rapture Of The Church, and The Coming Of Christ are mentioned in The Books Of The Bible...when they occur at their appointed times, it'll be too late to join in the Rapture Of The Church...or to bow at the Feet of The King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, at The Coming Of Christ, and call Him Lord. As Jesus Christ warned, ''you need to be ready...for at such an hour as you are not expecting it, The Son Of Man comes''. And, if you have not repented of your sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift...you'll either be left behind at the Rapture Of The Church...or not be allowed to enter the Millenial Kingdom at The Coming Of Christ. Your Eternal Destiny depends on your decision.

At Least One Chance Is Given There

Everyone who has ever lived will get at least one chance to hear the Gospel News...that Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son, left the Glory Of Heaven to come to Earth, to be born of a Virgin...to live and walk among us in all ways, except without sin...to die on an Old Rugged Cross for every sin that everyone would ever do...to rise again on The Third Day, according to the Scriptures...is coming back to Rapture His Church, and to return to Earth one day to rule and reign in Power and Glory. All creation declares His Glory, and once reading this, or any other poem in this Gospel Poetry Collection, you will NOT be able to stand before Jesus Christ on Judgment Day, and say that ''you never heard the Gospel''. As noted so many times in these poems that The Lord has so graciously given me, Your Eternal Destiny depends on whether or not you accept God's Free Love Gift.

Even So, Lord Jesus, Come

Based on Revelation 22:20, these are the words that are the prayer of every person who has repented of their sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as Their Lord and Saviour, throughout history. Quickly Coming Is The Lord, and one day, He will answer that prayer, asking Him to Return...first at the Rapture Of The Church...and second, at The Coming Of Christ to Earth to rule and reign as King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. Tragically, those who have not yet received God's Free Love Gift...and for those who died in their sins, that are now in The Home Of The Damned...they are terrified of these words, as they know after The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, they will be cast into The Lake Of Fire, and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night, with Satan, his demonic hordes, and every other unregenerate person who has ever lived. What you do with Jesus Christ, determines Your Eternal Destiny...and whether or not you say these words with anticipation and expectation...or with fear and dread.

A Judgment Far Worse Coming There

While there were numerous judgments by The Lord in the past...far worse judgments are coming soon for the Earth. If those who were judged with destruction by The Lord in years gone by, could see the abundance of sin and iniquity that is in the world today (such as with Sodom And Gomorrah), they likely would cry ''And we were destroyed for what we did??!!''. While The Lord is patient and long suffering, His Righteous Nature demands that one day, He will judge all Creation, because of The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth...and the life of every person who has ever lived. No One Gets Off Scot Free, and everyone will face The Lord to give an account for their lives. While Jesus Christ took upon Himself every sin that would ever be committed by mankind...dying in our place on an Old Rugged Cross...and then resurrected on The Third Day, according to the Scriptures...those who reject God's Free Love Gift will fare far worse than those who accept it.

Naked And Alone

Just like a newborn baby that is naked, alone, crying, and moaning...those rejecting God's Free Love Gift...will experience the same thing...first at The Moment Of Their Death...then at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, before Jesus Christ casts them into The Lake Of Fire, where They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night. You can avoid this situation...horrifying and embarassing...by repenting of your sins, and accepting God's Free Love Gift.

A Debt You Can Not Pay

Unlike credit cards...where you can be financially bankrupt; the true cost of your sin...where you are spiritually bankrupt...is one debt that you can NOT pay. Christ Alone, in the Precious Blood that He shed for all mankind on The Old Rugged Cross of Calvary...is sufficient to pay the cost. If you try to pay for it any other way...Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags...and if you have The One Sin Unforgiven on your record When You Stand Before The Lord one day...He will have no choice, but to cast you into The Lake Of Fire, with Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone else throughout history, who rejected God's Free Love Gift.

The Old Things Are Passed Away

Based on 2 Corinthians 5:17, ''if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creature. Old things are passed away, and all things are become new''. The statement holds true in both the physical, and the spiritual realm. Physically, when one dies, the old things of this life are passed away...and all things are new...in that either Heaven Or Hell will be their new home for all Eternity. Spiritually, when a person truly repents of sin, and by faith, accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, their old life of sin has passed away, and they now have a new desire to serve The Lord in all that they do...and there is no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus. While we still have our old sin nature in this corruptible flesh, our desire should be to serve The Lord, forsaking all sinful, fleshly desires. Tragically, there are those who are just Going Through The Motions in regards to their ''faith''. It'll Be A Shock One Day, when they find out too late that they'll be part of Those Not In God's Kingdom, in that they were never ''saved''... never repenting of their sin, or receiving God's Free Love Gift. And one day soon, when God creates The New Heavens, The New Earth, and The New Jerusalem, as Sin Won't Rise A Second Time...truly, the title of this poem will come to pass.

Your Spiritual Father

Like it or not, unless you have repented of your sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Saviour...your Spiritual Father is NOT The Lord...but Satan, the father of lies. Who you are serving determines where you will go at The Moment Of Your Death.

They Tragically Turned Their Backs On The Lord

Unfortunately, throughout history, so many people who originally came to The Lord in faith and followed Him, have turned away from the faith...essentially turning their backs on Him. When You Stand Before The Lord one day, you'll either be thrilled to see Him...or you'll be terrified...discovering that you're part of Those Not In God's Kingdom.

Seven Then One Thousand

First, starting with the Rapture Of The Church, the last seven years of human history, with mortal man ruling, will commence...as The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace starts his unprecedented reign of terror on the Earth...which is also the Seals, Bowls, And Trumpets of God's Wrath upon a Christ rejecting world. At the end of this seven year tribulation, When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, He will destroy all of His Enemies, and set up His Millenium Of Peace, righteousness, and equity. If you repent of your sins, and accept Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Saviour, prior to the Rapture Of The Church, you'll miss going through the seven years of tribulation on the Earth...but you'll get to rule and reign with Jesus Christ during the one thousand years of peace that will follow His Return. However, if you miss the Rapture, you will experience the seven year period of tribulation, one like the world has never seen before...or will ever see again. Those who accept God's Free Love Gift during the tribulation, will most likely be martyred for their faith...death by beheading. However, these who give their lives for The Lord, will join the saved who do survive...and enter the Millenium Of Peace Tragically, those who miss the Rapture, and who instead of accepting Christ...take the Mark Of The Beast instead...they will NOT be allowed to enter Christ's Millenial Kingdom. Instead, these will spend eternity in The Lake Of Fire, with Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone else who rejected God's Free Love Gift...and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night. Which of these two time periods you will have a part in depends on what you do with God's Free Love Gift.

Business As Usual Will End

The term ''business as usual'', refers to the ''status quo''...that the situations in life as we know it, will never change. But, as noted numerous times throughout history...one day, this ''business as usual'' will come to an end...as Intervention By The Lord once again, occurs. And, at The Moment Of Your Death, the ''business as usual'' of your life will end...as will as the chance for you to receive God's Free Love Gift.

You'll Hate Yourself Forever

Upon The Moment Of Your Death, you'll realize that...tragically, it's too late for you to accept God's Free Love Gift...if you never made that decision while on Earth. You'll hate that you chose to believe Satan's lies, instead of The Gospel In A Nutshell...that God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Son, The Lord Jesus Christ...that whoever would believe on Him, would not die in their sins, but have everlasting life in Heaven. You'll hate that you don't have another chance to accept God's Free Love Gift, and hate that instead of the bliss of Heaven, The Home Of The Damned is now yours forever.

Heaven Is Not Owed To You

No matter what you've heard, Heaven is NOT owed to you upon The Moment Of Your Death...but The Home Of The Damned, is. God's Standard Is Perfection, and the price of your sin is A Debt You Can Not Pay. The only way you can enter Heaven is to repent of your sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift...and truly mean it...not just Going Through The Motions.

The Home Of The Redeemed

Unlike The Home Of The Damned, The Home Of The Redeemed will be a place where there will be Nothing That Defiles...only joy, happiness, and eternal fellowship with Jesus Christ, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, as well as with everyone else who repented of their sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Note that Heaven Is Not Owed To You upon The Moment Of Your Death...so, unless you make the decision to Receive God's Free Love Gift, you will not be allowed to enter this wonderful place, that The Lord has prepared for those who love Him.

God's Promises Are Kept

From eternity past, to the present day, and yet to be fulfilled...every promise that The Lord has made, He will keep. The most critical promise is that if you reject God's Free Love Gift, you will spend eternity in The Home Of The Damned. However, for those who repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift, you will spend eternity in The Home Of The Redeemed...the choice is yours.

After Death, Belief Too Late

Everyone is a believer on Jesus Christ after The Moment Of Their Death. Unfortunately, for those in The Home Of The Damned, it is too late for them to gain access to The Home Of The Redeemed. Your Eternal Destiny will be either Heaven Or Hell...depending on what you do with God's Free Love Gift.

Our Passover And Mediator

Based On 1 Corinthians 5:7 and 1 Timothy 2:5, Christ Alone is both our ''Passover'', and our ''Mediator''. When we repent (turn from) our sin, and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, The Blood that He shed for all mankind on the Cross of Calvary, as the Spotless Lamb Of God...it has the same effect as the blood from the spotless lamb that was spread on the doorpost to avoid the tenth and final plague that God sent over the land of Egypt. God's Judgment ''passed over'' those covered by The Blood. God's Word says that ''Without The Shedding Of Blood, There Is No Remission (Payment) For Sin''. And, while The Grace Of God is a License To Serve, Not License To Sin...when His Children do transgress because of The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth, The Lord intercedes for us...the One Mediator between God and Man. Even Our Lord's Earthly Mother, the Virgin Mary, made a sin offering of turtledoves...she knew that her first born son, The Lord Jesus Christ, would also be her Saviour. She sang ''My Soul Does Magnify The Lord...And My Spirit Has Rejoiced In God My Saviour''. If Mary was sinless... as some believe...WHY did she say that she needed a Saviour?? I John 1:10 says ''If we say we have no sin, we make God a liar, and His Word is not in us''. That deed...of saying you or someone else has no sin (except for Christ Alone) ...basically puts you on the same par with Satan...the father of lies...who called God a liar from the outset...when he, the one time covering cherub, led one third of the angelic realm, to rebel against God in Heaven. Satan, all his demonic hordes, and everyone who has ever lived on Earth, who choose to reject God's Free Love Gift, will spend eternity in The Home Of The Damned.

First By Water...Then By Fire

Water and Fire are used many times in The Books Of The Bible...as both means of judgment, and of baptism. The first time God destroyed the world, it was by Water...the second time, it will be by Fire. After Pharoah's army was destroyed in the Waters of the Red Sea...The Lord was with His People as a Pillar Of Fire. When Elijah and the prophets of Baal did battle on Mount Carmel, The Lord sent down Fire from Heaven, and it burned up all the the altars that were built, and the water that surrounded them. When John The Baptist saw The Lord, He said that ''I baptize you with Water...but One greater than me will baptize you with The Holy Spirit and Fire''. In the story...not a parable...of the rich man and the beggar...both of them died. Tragically, the rich man was now in Torments...and he called for cooling drops of water to ease the tormenting flame. But Abraham...joined by the beggar in Paradise...told the rich man that ''his torment would never end''. Water baptism won't save your soul, but it is a testimony that you have repented of your sin, and asked Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Saviour. Those who truly repent and believe...not Going Through The Motions...will not only have their sins washed away by The Blood Of Jesus...something that water can NOT do...but they won't have to pay the cost of their sins in The Lake Of Fire, The Home Of The Damned.

Where Will You Spend Eternity, Friend??

This question is one that MUST be answered by every person who has ever lived on Earth. Contrary to what you may have heard or believe...only Heaven Or Hell...The Home Of The Redeemed, or The Home Of The Damned are the available Choices. Your choice on whether you accept or reject God's Free Love Gift, determines where you will go upon The Moment Of Your Death.

No Respecter Of Persons

Based On Acts 10:34 and Romans 2:11, God is no respecter of persons. No matter whether you were born into wealth in royalty...dirt poor...or somewhere in between...everyone must make the choice on whether to accept or reject God's Free Love Gift.

The Believing Remnant

Based On Romans 11:5, tragically, most of mankind will reject God's Free Love Gift. However, God has always had a ''believing remnant'' that He has preserved with each generation. Will you be part of this group??

The Point Of No Return

Many times in life, once you've passed a certain point in a decision that you made, there is ''no turning back''...you've reached the point of no return. And, at The Moment Of Your Death, you will have reached this point when it comes to accepting or rejecting God's Free Love Gift.

Will You Praise Christ, Or Curse Yourself That Day??

The title of this poem is a pointed question to every soul that has ever lived upon this Earth. Which one of these you do When You Stand Before The Lord will be determined on what you did with God's Free Love Gift, while you were on Earth.

The Alpha And Omega

Based On Revelation 1:8, 1:11, 21:6, and 22:13, this poem tells of the many attributes of Jesus Christ...Creator, and King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, He knew all things from eternity past...and He knows all things both at this very moment...and in eternity future. He knows you better than you know yourself...your motives, words, thoughts, and deeds...nothing escapes His Glance. And, When You Stand Before The Lord, to give an account of your life, Will You Praise Christ, Or Curse Yourself That Day??...on what you did with God's Free Love Gift.

Every Eye Shall See The Lord One Day

Based on Revelation 1:7, When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, every eye shall see Him...no matter where they are on the planet...no matter whether they have accepted or rejected God's Free Love Gift. At that point, when He comes as the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords...it will be TOO LATE to fall at His Feet, and call Him Lord. So, in advance of The Coming Of Christ, if someone tells you that ''Christ Is Here''...do NOT believe it. When He does return to judge the world, you won't need satellite, television, or anything else to see Him...as everyone will know instantly that Christ has returned. And, what you did with God's Free Love Gift will determine Your Eternal Destiny.

Blessed Is The Nation Whose God Is The Lord

Based on Psalm 33:12, the nations who serve and honor The Lord will be blessed by Him...and those who are against Him, will see those blessings removed. But, All Nations And All Peoples Judged One Day...and the nations are as a drop of water in a bucket...as dust in the balance. Both nations, and individuals will face The Lord at The Judgment...on how they treated His People, and whether or not they accepted God's Free Love Gift.

The Worst Nightmare There Faced

Many times in life, one has bizarre, scary, and terrifying nightmarish dreams...where they wake up screaming in fear. However, for those who refuse God's Free Love Gift...Jesus Christ, for these will NOT be A Friend For Life...but the most terrifying person they will ever meet at The Judgment.

The Way, The Truth, The Life

Based on John 14:6, Christ Alone, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, is The ONLY Way To Heaven. Unless you accept God's Free Love Gift...upon The Moment Of Your Death, you'll go to The Home Of The Damned...instead of The Home Of The Redeemed. And, instead of Jesus Christ being A Friend For Life...He'll be The Worst Nightmare There Faced.

The Folded Napkin

Based on John 20:7, the folded napkin left in Christ's Grave with His Burial Clothes after His Resurrection, has an interesting similarity with meal customs of that day. The servant would prepare the meal for his master. Then, while his master ate, the servant would wait just ouside the room. If the master crumpled up his dirty napkin before he left the table...that signal would tell the servant that his master was done, and he would not return...so the servant could clean things up. But, if the napkin was neatly folded, that indicated that the master would be returning. With the folded napkin left there with Christ's Burial Clothes, it meant that He would be coming back again!! There will be Two Feasts Of The Future...one The Marriage Supper Of The Lamb...possibly combined with the Millenial Banquet after When Christ Returns To Planet Earth ...and the other where all the vultures and birds of the air dine on the bloody carnage of the armies who tried to destroy Christ at His Second Coming. Which of these feasts you will attend when The Master Comes Back, is determined by what you do with God's Free Love Gift.

The Lord, He Did Command His Love To All

Based On Romans 5:8, The Lord Commanded His Love toward all mankind...in that while we still sinners... His Enemies...He left the Glory Of Heaven...to come to Earth to be born of a Virgin...to live, and walk among us in all ways...EXCEPT WITHOUT SIN...then was scourged and then crucified on an Old Rugged Cross for every sin everyone would ever commit...then rose again The Third Day, according to the Scriptures, and one day, is coming back to rule and reign in power and glory. The Lord did not have to do what He did...but even if was JUST FOR YOU ALONE, He still would have done it. Will you reciprocate This Great Love, by repenting of your sin, and accepting God's Free Love Gift?? If not, you'll see that you're The One To Blame for all eternity.

You Can't Take The Fifth Before The Lord

One of the items in the U.S. Constitution, in the Bill Of Rights, is the Fifth Ammendment...in which those on trial can use to protect against self incrimination from their testimony. However, When You Stand Before The Lord, with A Life On Trial, you WON'T be able to ''take the Fifth'' in your defense. Your Life Is Being Recorded, and You'll Answer Only For Yourself, for your life, and what you did with God's Free Love Gift.

The Doom Of Satan's Lie

Once the covering cherub who guarded The Throne Of God...Lucifer inflated with pride, deceiving one third of the angelic realm to join him in rebellion against God. They were promptly cast out of Heaven for all eternity, and The Lord created The Home Of The Damned for all of them. Lucifer's name was changed to Satan...and his fallen angels were changed into demons. Since that time, they have spread lies against the Righteousness Of The Lord...deceiving our first parents, and bringing The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth. It would be Christ Alone, the Second Person in The Godhead...truly, the God-Man...who would take upon Himself His Righteous Wrath meant for all mankind...and die on an Old Rugged Cross to pay for every sin that would ever be committed...and achieving the victory when He rose again the Third Day, according to The Scriptures. Even though Satan and his demonic hordes were defeated when Christ rose from the dead... because Without The Resurrection, It's Just Not The Same...but, Like A Roaring Lion, Satan and his evil throngs continue to work feverishly, to continue to deceive millions into believing the doom of his lies. Tragically, most will believe these lies, and find out too late the folly of rejecting God's Free Love Gift. Those who do will be Without Excuse on Judgment Day.

Don't Crucify The Lord Again

Based on Hebrews 6:6, The Lord Did All He Could To Save Your Soul. But, in spite of Christ crying ''It Is Finished!!'' when He died for all mankind on that Rugged Cross...meaning that no further sacrifice for sin was needed, many people ''crucify The Lord again, putting Him to shame''. This can be of those rejecting God's Free Love Gift...to those not believing that The Grace Of God is a License To Serve; Not License To Sin...or to those who believe that Christ's Death was not enough to pay for all our sins...that His Sacrifice is ''ongoing''...with the elements of The Lord's Supper (the bread and the wine) being literal, and not symbolic. If there is anyone who needs to be crucified, it should be every one who has repented of their sin, and by faith, accepted God's Free Love Gift...in crucifying their old sin nature DAILY... bringing every thought, word, and deed, captive unto the obedience of Christ. According to I John 1:10, ''if we say we have no sin, we make God a liar, and His Word is NOT in us''. To me, the idea of eating human flesh, in cannibalistic fashion, is revolting...humans are NOT vultures!! And, for that matter, WHY should Christ go through all that shame and suffering again?? If you are one of those who ''crucify The Lord again'', instead of accepting that His Sacrifice was COMPLETE...just Going Through The Motions, you will be in for a RUDE AWAKENING at The Moment Of Your Death, When You Stand Before The Lord, and you hear the terrifying words ''For You, I've Never Known''. The Life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ Alone is ENOUGH to take care of A Debt You Can Not Pay...the eternal cost of sin...both mine and yours. As the Apostle Paul was inspired to write, ''I glory in The Cross Of Christ'', as FULL AND COMPLETE PAYMENT for my sin...because both my righteousness, and Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags before The Lord.

This Kingdom Will Not End

Based on Isaiah 9:7, Christ's Millenium Of Peace will be just the start of His Kingdom of Righteousness, Truth, Purity, amd Equity, for all Eternity. Unlike the numerous kingdoms before it...which were run by sinful men and women, Christ's Kingdom will NEVER end. Life will be similar to what it was in the home of our first parents... Adam and Eve...in The Garden Of Eden. The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the mute will speak, the lame will walk, The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth will be removed, the animals will peacefully co-exist with mankind and each other, no one will say ''I am sick''...and many other blessings that The Lord will pour out on His Creation after He returns to Earth. The thing is, only those who have repented of their sin, and by faith, accepted God's Free Love Gift will be allowed entry into this Kingdom. Will you be part of this group, or will you be denied entry, because you either refused God's Free Love Gift, or you were just Going Through The Motions??

Those Too Blind To See

In spite of evidence throughout all of Creation...throughout history, there are still those who, for whatever reason, choose to ignore the obvious...in effect, they are ''too blind to see''. The Glory of The Lord, His Power, Righteousness, Majesty, Truth, Wisdom, and especially His Free Love Gift is so clearly seen in His Precious Word. Please don't be one of those who chooses to be ''spiritually blind'' for all Eternity The Great Physician, Christ Alone is the ONLY one who can cure this condition. However, if you choose to ignore this ''Divine Prescription'' of repenting of your sin, and receiving God's Free Love Gift, spending Eternity in The Home Of The Damned will burn far worse than any stinging eye drop, or other trial in life that you have ever experienced.

Who Is Seated Upon Your Lifes Throne??

Everyone has a ''throne'' in their life...and only two choices exist for occupying it. It is either yourself, with Satan, and all your selfish, sinful pride...or Christ Alone, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. Who is on that throne at The Moment Of Your Death...on what you did with God's Free Love Gift determines Your Eternal Destiny.

God's Word Is Final Authority

Whether you want to accept it, believe it, or not...God's Word is FINAL AUTHORITY on everything...from Creation, to your life...and, The Changing Of God's Word is NOT an option...and When You Stand Before The Lord at The Judgment, God's Words Live Forever, Friend. What you do with His Word, and His Free Love Gift determines Your Eternal Destiny.

One Appointment You Will Keep

Throughout life, every day has a new set of tasks, appointments, etc. that you have to take care of. And, some days, you likely end up missing some appointments because of other tasks or circumstances. But, upon The Momemnt Of Your Death, there is one appointment that you WILL keep... When You Stand Before The Lord at The Judgment. Where you spend Eternity... Heaven Or Hell, is determined what you did with God's Free Love Gift.

Just One Sin Will Send Your Soul To Hell

A companion poem to The One Sin Unforgiven, and God's Standard Is Perfection, the commission of ONLY ONE SIN... whether you thought about doing it in your mind...or you actually did the vile deed...is enough to send you to Hell, The Home Of The Damned. But, refusing to do The One Thing God Requires...repenting of your sin, and accepting His Free Love Gift...will send you there as well.

The Two Gardens

First, in The Garden Of Eden...then second, in The Garden Of Gethsemane...these were the two gardens where our eternal life was first lost...and the second began the process of reclaiming it. Access to The Tree Of Life was lost in The Garden Of Eden...but access to it was regained, starting in The Garden Of Gethsemane...and ultimately to The Cross Of Christ. And, as The Lord walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden in the cool of the day...He wants you to meet Him ''In The Garden''...and for you to accept His Free Love Gift.

The Lord Is Never Late

With the hectic pace of life, mankind overburdens himself with numerous appointments each day. In fact, there can be so many of these, that one is either late for them, or misses them altogether. The only things that all are Not In A Hurry to do...are to accept God's Free Love Gift...and The Moment Of Your Death. But, God Will Not Wait Forever...and while it may seem that The Lord is delaying things...according to ''our timetable''...in reality, in the grand scheme of things for all Eternity, there is a time for every purpose and event under Heaven. While it may seem that God is ''slow'' by our standards...in reality, The Lord Is Never Late. However, If You Wait 'Till It's Too Late, you will regret it for all Eternity in The Home Of The Damned.

Not What They Were Looking For

From the Jews of Israel, to those in the world today...for the most part, Jesus Christ, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, is not what they were looking for. The Jews wanted a Godlike warrior to overthrow the burden of Roman Rule. The world today would prefer that He preach a ''prosperity and social gospel''...and never be talking about The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth... The Commandments Ten... The Doom Of Satan's Lie... The Now And Eternal Cost... The One Thing God Requires...that Christ Alone is The Way, The Truth, The Life...that The Grace Of God would be shown by The Cross Of Christ...which was The Gospel In A Nutshell...and that Without The Resurrection, It's Just Not The Same. When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, to the unsaved masses of mankind, Christ will be Not What They Were Looking For...as He will sentence these to The Home Of The Damned.

Hell Is Not A Party Place

A companion poem to The Home Of The Damned, many people believe that Hell is a place where they can party, and engage in unbridled sin forever. And, that is the lie that Satan and his demonic hordes want you to believe. Tragically, upon The Moment Of Your Death, if you refuse to accept God's Free Love Gift, you will find out too late that Hell Is NOT A Party Place...and for all those there, They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

There Is None Beside The Lord

Based On Isaiah 45:5-6, countless deities and gods...mythological, pagan, etc. have seemingly existed forever. But, There Is None Beside The Lord, and all these other deities, gods, etc...set up by Satan and his demonic hordes...are FALSE. These false gods can NOT see or hear...and any prayers to them are IGNORED; as Satan, the father of lies, ALWAYS ''double-crosses'' his followers. However, The Lord, Christ Alone, The ONLY Way To Heaven...promises that if you will repent of your sin, and by faith, God's Free Love Gift, He WILL hear and answer your prayer...and NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU.

When God's Invitation Ends

Many people think that they have plenty of time to make a decision for Christ. Unfortunately, after The Moment Of Your Death...or When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, it's too late to make that decision that determines Your Eternal Destiny. God Will Not Wait Forever for mankind to repent of sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. And, If You Wait Till It's Too Late, you'll see that you're The One To Blame When You Stand Before The Lord one day.

Sadly, Not All Will Repent

While The Lord's Question of Do You Have Time For Me?? is the most convicting for me personally...this poem was truly a burden to write. The Will Of The Lord is not for anyone to die in their sin...but that all should come to repentance of their sin, and by faith, accept God's Free Love Gift. Tragically, The Rebels Won't Accept The Truth, even though At Least One Chance Is Given There to hear The Gospel In A Nutshell...for some men, women, and even children...as Those Too Blind To See...They Would Not Repent of their sin. And, at The Judgment, they discover too late The Price Of Being Wrong is one that they will be paying on for all Eternity.
Hell Is Not A Refuge From The Lord

A companion to Hell Is Not A Party Place, The Home Of The Damned, and Hell Was Meant For Satan, this poem is meant to counter the claim made by the late blasphemer, Altamonte...who declared on his death bed, ''Hell Is A Refuge If I Can Get Away From The Voice Of God''. Tragically, all who are now in this horrifying, eternally painful place, have discovered that they were Given What Was Desired...that God's Voice...and any other thing of goodness, righteousness, etc. is absent from this place. But, all who entered here by their own choice, will still face Christ Alone... The King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, at The Judgment...where One Day, On Bended Knee, ''every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God, The Father'' (Philippians 2:10-11). And, afterwards, these will be cast into The Lake Of Fire, to burn forever...with Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone else who rejected God's Free Love Gift...and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

The One To Blame

With the Choices that all of us make in life, each of us must take the responsibility, and the blame for our actions. Because Sin Is Like A Cancer...that started in The Garden Of Eden, when our first parents, Adam and Eve, were deceived by Satan...every one who has ever lived and walked upon the Earth is the one to blame for our actions against The Lord. And, it is because of this, The Lord, He Did Command His Love To All, by leaving The Glory Of Heaven, to come to Earth, and be born of a Virgin...to live and walk among us in all ways, except WITHOUT sin...to take upon Himself the blame of all our sin and shame...to die on an Old Rugged Cross...and to rise again in victory on The Third Day, according to The Scriptures. For those who have repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, they realize that each one of them is the one to blame for what Christ had to do to get us into Heaven. Tragically, if you are part of those who believe that The Preaching Of The Cross is foolishness, choosing to reject God's Free Love Gift, you will realize upon The Moment Of Your Death, that you are the one to blame, because you believed The Doom Of Satan's Lie.

Two Souls Every Second

It's hard to believe, but 2 souls die every second. That's 120 souls every minute, 7200 souls every hour, and 172,800 souls every day!! Each of these souls go either to Heaven Or Hell...all dependent on what they did with God's Free Love Gift...which really is The Only Thing That Matters. God's Standard Is Perfection, and ONLY ONE SIN is enough to send you to The Home Of The Damned for all Eternity. You can not forsee The Moment Of Your Death, and After Death, Belief Too Late to change Your Eternal Destiny.

Jerusalem, A Burdensome Stone

Based on Zechariah 12:3, it was prophesied that ''Jerusalem would become a burdensome stone to all the nations; and that those who burden themselves with it, would be cut in pieces''. As The Coming Of Christ draws closer...more and more nations of the Earth are aligning themselves against Jerusalem, and Touching The Apple Of God's Eye. Jerusalem is the ONLY place that God called ''My City''...and after The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, Jerusalem will be from where The Lord Jesus Christ sets up His Millenium Of Peace...a Kingdom of Righteousness And Equity. The only ones who will be allowed to enter this Holy City will be those who have accepted God's Free Love Gift. All others will hear the horrifying words from The Lord at The Judgment... ''Depart From Me...For You, I've Never Known.

You Cannot Argue With The Lord

Many times in life, when people disagree, or don't get their way...they resort to getting into arguments. And, tragically, many will try to argue with the principles that God laid down...but they forget that The Lord, He Made The Rules...and trying to argue with the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords will be a waste of time...as He already knows every thought before you think it out...and every word before it is on your tongue.

The Lord Knows Everything About You, Friend

As the title of this poem says, The Lord knows everything about you...even better than you know yourself. He knew you before you were conceived, when you'd be born, how long you'd live, what circumstances you'd encounter, when you would die, and whether or not you would accept His Free Love Gift. But, the choice of Your Eternal Destiny...Heaven Or Hell, remains yours to make, before The Moment Of Your Death.

Satan And His Hordes Want You To Burn

Whether you know it or not, you have an enemy worse than any enemy on Earth. Satan and his demonic hordes HATE YOU WITH A PASSION...and they want to BURN WITH THEM FOREVER in The Home Of The Damned. However, you do NOT have to go there...or believe The Doom Of Satan's Lie. Repent of your sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift...and instead, your eternal place will instead be The Home Of The Redeemed.

The Time Of Jacob's Trouble

Based on Jeremiah 30:7, a time of tribulation never before seen upon the Earth...or will ever be again...is to begin shortly after the Rapture Of The Church. This last ''week of years'' for the nation of Israel, will also be God's Judgment on a sinful, Christ rejecting world. The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace will rise to power, and appear to be the Saviour of the world...when in truth, he will make the regimes of Hitler, Stalin, and others, pale by comparison...becoming the most evil man to ever be upon the Earth...literally Satan incarnate. During this time, 21 sets of judgments...Seals, Bowls, And Trumpets will pour God's Wrath upon the Earth, and nearly two thirds of those living on the planet at the start of this time period will die. At the end of this time, the nation of Israel will realize that Jesus Christ, The Suffering Servant...is their Messiah...and, they will call on Him, to save them from certain extinction by the armies of the world...and He does!! Every Eye Shall See The Lord One Day... and for all those who rejected Him...they'll realize that they were part of Those Too Blind To See...and that the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords is now The Worst Nightmare Faced... as they will spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned. However, for those who believed on The One Thing God Requires, they will then enter Christ's Millenial Kingdom on Earth...where the devastation from the previous seven years will be removed...with both The Groaning Of Creation, and The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth will be no more. You can avoid the worst seven years that the Earth will experience, if you repent of your sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift, before the Rapture Of The Church.

Let God Be True, But Every Man A Liar

Based on Romans 3:4, throughout history, ''wolves among the flock'' have constantly worked to sow discord among the true believers that have repented of their sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as Their Lord And Saviour. They create a bunch of man-made traditions, rituals, a ''feel good social gospel that tickles the ears'', etc. But, these sinful souls in positions of authority in The Church, fail to accept the fact that God's Word Is Final Authority, that God's Word Is Not Here To Tickle Your Ears, and that God's Words Live Forever, Friend. Everyone is urged to ''test the spirits'', because not every man preaching from the pulpit, is actually preaching The Truth Of God. To these, at The Judgment, these will hear the horrifying words from the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords...''Depart From Me... For You've I've Never Known.

After The Rapture Of The Church. Don't Worry About Me

One day soon, with no advance warning...and taking place faster than light can enter the eye and strike the retina...millions of people, dead and alive...will vanish from Planet Earth in the Rapture Of The Church. All those who put their faith in Christ Alone...the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, as their Saviour...will rejoice at the cry Behold The Bridegroom Comes. Tragically, Tragedy At Rapture will be the rule To Those Left Behind On Earth after the Rapture. The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, ruled by The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace, will be a time of trouble never before seen on Earth. It will take The Coming Of Christ to stop the destruction. But for those who are worried about those taken in the Rapture, there is no need to worry... they are now with The Lord for all Eternity. You can be part of this group, if you repent of your sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift before either The Moment Of Your Death, or the Rapture Of The Church. However, If You Wait Till It's Too Late...and either miss the Rapture Of The Church...or you die unexpectedly, as Tomorrow Is Promised To No One...you will regret that choice in The Home Of The Damned for all Eternity.
The Lost Will Get Their Wish Granted One Day

A companion poem to Given What Was Desired, everyone who has refused to accept God's Free Love Gift, The Lord will give them their wish one day. At the Rapture Of The Church, all the true believers, dead and alive, will vanish from the Earth to join Christ in the Heavens. Since they continually refuse to listen to The Lord's Still Small Voice, He will finally grant them their request. Tragically, in The Home Of The Damned, they'll realize that it's too late for them to change their eternal destiny.

Prophecies Will Be Fulfilled One Day

A companion poem to God's Promises Are Kept...as prophecies from The Lord in times past were fulfilled...the remainder of unfulfilled prophecies will be fulfilled one day as well. Starting with the Rapture Of The Church, followed by The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, and ultimately The Coming Of Christ. For those who reject these prophecies, saying that The Preaching Of The Cross is foolishness...they tragically will see too late that The Price Of Being Wrong is a far greater cost than they can pay.

The Blessed Hope

Based on Titus 2:13, this is the ultimate hope of those who have repented of their sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. When The Last Person Saved has been reached in God's Divine Quota, the cry of Behold, The Bridegroom Comes will resonate through the Heavens... and faster than it takes light to enter eye and strike the retina, the Rapture Of The Church, will occur...where it will be A Reunion Like No Other. Those left behind, who rejected God's Free Love Gift will enter The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, which will last for seven years. After which, When Christ Returns To Planet Earth as King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, it will be too late at that point to make a decision to change Your Eternal Destiny.

Pride Before Destruction

Based on Proverbs 16:18, those who arrogantly gloat and boast about themselves in their prideful egos, will be shocked to find one day that The Lord will bring them down, with God's Judgment There, When Least Expected. The Lord declares that I Will Break The Pride Of Your Power, and asks What Good Is Your Pride Going To Do You In Hell??. Pride is what brought down Lucifer, originally the covering cherub...who became Satan, the father of all lies and pride... as well as the third of the angelic realm who followed him, and became his demonic minons. One Day, On Bended Knee...Satan himself, his demonic hordes, and every soul who has ever lived...whether or not they accepted God's Free Love Gift, will bow before the Throne of Jesus Christ, The King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, and declare that Jesus Christ Is Lord, to The Glory Of God The Father. Everlasting Punishment Or Life Eternal There will be yours, depending on what you do with God's Free Love Gift.

Those Now In The Flames Of Hell

A companion poem to The Home Of The Damned, billions of souls are in a place that they never thought they'd end up in...they don't want their loves one to join them...they wish they could get out, but realize there is no escape from the place originally made for Satan and his demonic hordes. Those now in the flames of Hell refused to do The One Thing God Requires...to repent of sin, and Receive God's Free Love Gift. Tragically, you too, will join this group, if you have The One Sin Unforgiven on your record When You Stand Before The Lord...and before that at The Moment Of Your Death.

God Has Always Been A Gentleman

The title of this poem may be a bit misleading, where some believe that The Lord of all Creation will never be subject to anger. However, from the pages of The Bible, we know that isn't the case...especially in the many instances of Intervention By The Lord. What this poem describes is that The Lord did NOT want robots...but people who would VOLUNTARILY worship and serve Him out of love and gratitude, for when The Lord, He Did Command His Love To All, by sending His Only Begotten Son, Christ Alone, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords to take all of the sins that would ever be done upon Himself...and die on an Old Rugged Cross, shedding his Precious Blood to cleanse our sins away for Eternity. But, when most of mankind rebelled...as They Tragically Turned Their Backs On The Lord...effectively telling God ''We Don't Want You In Our Lives''...they were Given What Was Desired. And, so the Hand of God's Protection was lifted from both these individuals, and nations...with God's Judgment There When Least Expected. The Lord will NOT force you to repent of your sin, and accept His Free Love Gift. But, If You Reject The Lord, You'll Hate Yourself Forever, as you spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned.

Soon All Of Earth Will Feel Sodom's Fate

Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by The Lord for their sinful lifestyle...by God's Righteous Fire. And as 2 Peter 3:10 notes, one day, all of Earth will meet the same fate. While water cleanses, fire purifies...and the Earth will need to be fully purified from The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth before The Lord makes all things new. And, just as the Earth will feel Sodom's fate of Fiery Judgment, all those who reject God's Free Love Gift will be sent to The Home Of The Damned, The Lake Of Fire, for all eternity. And unlike this current Earth, which will be burned up, before The Lord creates a New Heaven, a New Earth, and a New Jerusalem...those in The Lake Of Fire will never burn up. You don't have to receive this horrifying, eternal fate. Repent of your sin, and accept Jesus Christ as Your Lord And Saviour.

You Can't Say That You Weren't Warned

At Least One Chance Is Given There for everyone to hear the Gospel Truth, that Christ Alone, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, left the Glory Of Heaven to come to Earth...to be born of a Virgin...to live and walk among us in all ways, EXCEPT WITHOUT SIN...to be condemned to die in our place on an Old Rugged Cross...to rise from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures... and that He's coming back to rule and reign one day. The Lord Did All He Could To Save Your Soul... but Your Eternal Destiny depends on your decision.

Not Everyone Will Enter Heaven

Based on Matthew 7:23, not everyone who calls Jesus LORD will enter Heaven...but those who have repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift. Lip Service Isn't Good Enough, and just Going Through The Motions will tragically make you a part of this group.

Confession Or Denial Of The Lord

Based on Matthew 10:32-33, those who confess Jesus Christ before others, He will confess them before His Father in Heaven...and conversely, those who deny Jesus Christ before others, He will deny them before His Father in Heaven. Those who repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift, will not have to fear The Lord...as He will be A Friend For Life, both here on Earth, and in Eternity. Traglically, those who choose to spurn God's Free Love Gift, The Lord will be The Worst Nightmare There Faced.

The Day All Hope Is Gone

For those who read this Gospel Poetry Collection...and yet, choose to reject God's Free Love Gift... The Moment Of Your Death for you, will be the title of this poem. It's Appointed All To Die, and after this, The Judgment. And, once you enter The Home Of The Damned, you'll realize too late that there is no escape.

Mankind Never Learns

Throughout life, every day events are a ''learning experience''. You're shown what will happen if you disobey the rules, and the consequences. Sadly, just as many spurn the advice of their parents, family, etc. -- most of mankind also spurns The Words Of The Lord, and His Rules for Life. Despite all the warnings...and resulting judgments...it seems that, as the title of this poem states... mankind never learns. Tragically, those who choose to reject God's Free Love Gift, they will also be in this category.

Not Confusions Author

Based on 1 Corinthians 14:33, The Lord is not the author of confusion. The Gospel News is so simple...yet mankind does so much to make it confusing. Those choosing to refuse God's Free Love Gift, because they chose to listen to The Doom Of Satan's Lie, will regret it for all Eternity.

It Won't Be By Accident At Death

Upon The Moment Of Your Death, you will go either to Heaven Or Hell. And, it won't be by accident that you entered either place. A Decision Not Required To Go To Hell, The Home Of The Damned...but you can either Repent And Receive, Or Reject And Regret God's Free Love Gift. Your Eternal Destiny depends on your decision.

They Believe, And Tremble There

Based on James 2:19...Those Now In The Flames Of Hell...including Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone who refused God's Free Love Gift... realize too late the Truth of God's Word, and know that they will be Without Excuse, before the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords at The Judgment...and realizing that Jesus Christ will be The Worst Nightmare There Faced, makes them tremble...as The Horror In Their Eyes will be with them for all Eternity.

God Is Not Mocked

Based on Galatians 6:7, When You Stand Before The Lord at The Judgment, you'll be Without Excuse. Your Life Is Being Recorded, and everything will be played back...whether done in secret, or in the open...and there will be No Question Of Guilt on your part in every motive, word, thought, and deed that you committed. God's Standard Is Perfection, and if you've broken His Law at one point, you've broken it at ALL points. You Can't Fool The Lord, My Friend, and unless you choose to repent of your sin, and accept Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Saviour, instead of spending Eternity in The Home Of The Redeemed, The Lake Of Fire...The Home Of The Damned will be your eternal fate.

They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night

Based on Revelation 20:10...this is the fate for Satan, his demonic hordes, The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace (The Antichrist), The False Prophet, and everyone else who refused to repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. I pray that you will NOT be part of this group.

Bible Prophecies Show That They're True

As in years past, the prophecies in The Word Of God...that came to pass 100% of the time...in God's Own Time, all of the remaining unfulfilled prophecies will be fulfilled in like manner...just as they were prophesied that they would be. All Scripture Given By The Lord, in all The Books Of The Bible...and God's Word Is Final Authority. There is nothing that mankind can do to keep every event prophesied in God's Word from occurring. But, you can make TODAY The Most Important Day for you in all Eternity, by repenting of your sin, and accepting God's Free Love Gift. Please note that Tomorrow Is Promised To No One, and You Can't Say That You Weren't Warned When You Stand Before The Lord one day.

Destined For The Lake Of Fire

Sadly, Not All Will Repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. Those Not In God's Kingdom, and Those Now In The Flames Of Hell are destined for this horrible place, created for Satan and his demonic hordes...and these will be there for all Eternity, with no hope or chance of escape. I pray that you WON'T be part of this tragic group.

Humbled And In Awe

When I consider all that The Lord did for me, even though I was still a sinner...I am greatly humbled and in awe when I stand in His Prescence...in prayer or otherwise. I can NOT understand why He would leave the Glory Of Heaven, to come to Earth, to be born of a Virgin, to live and walk among mankind, and to allow Himself to be beaten and crucified for not only every sin I would commit, but for the sins of everyone who ever lived...and guarantee the victory with His Resurrection. However, to obtain this forgiveness, one must repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift.

When God's Patience Ends

God Will Not Wait Forever for mankind to repent of sin, and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. And, when God's Patience ends, His Judgments will come fast and furious...and it'll be too late to make a decision for Christ. And, it will truly be a frightening time on Earth...as it has been many times throughout history.

The Most Hated Words

The words that Jesus Christ said in John 14:6, ''I am The Way, The Truth, And The Life. No one comes to The Father, except through Me'' are probably the most hated words ever spoken by anyone who has walked the Earth. It is the ''death sentence'' to all other religions...showing that ONLY by repenting of sin, and accepting by faith what He did for all mankind in dying in our place on that Old Rugged Cross, rising from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures...and accepting God's Free Love Gift...can one expect to enter Heaven. What you do with these words determines Your Eternal Destiny.

No Pardons And No Mercy

For those who refuse to do The One Thing God Requires...repenting of their sin, and accepting God's Free Love Gift...at The Judgment, there will be no pardons and no mercy...as all these are Destined For The Lake Of Fire. I pray that you will NOT be part of this group.

Everyone's Accountable

A companion poem to You'll Answer Only For Yourself, A Life On Trial, and Your Life Is Being Recorded, everyone will be accountable at The Judgment before The Lord one day. Like it or not, your life will be replayed in every way...but, it'll be too late at that point to accept Jesus Christ as Your Lord And Savior.

Those Calling On The Lord's Name Shall Be Saved

Based on Romans 10:13, whoever shall call upon The Name of The Lord...not Going Through The Motions... but truly believing that Jesus Christ, God In The Flesh...left Heaven's Glory to come to Earth, to be born of a Virgin, to live and walk among us in all ways (except without sin), to die on an Old Rugged Cross for all mankind, that God raised Him from the dead on the third day, according to The Scriptures, that He's coming again to rule and reign...when they ask Christ to be their Lord and Saviour, He will do so...saving their souls from the wrath of God's Judgment. But, Sadly, Not All Will Repent, and for these...instead of being A Friend For Life, Christ will be The Worst Nightmare There Faced.

A Day That These Will Dread

Of all the days in life, one thinks that the day which has The Moment Of Your Death, is the most feared day. For those who refuse to accept God's Free Love Gift, this statement is indeed, SAD, BUT TRUE. However, for those who repent of their sin, and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, they have nothing to fear of this day.

Deals With The Devil Are All Fake

All of mankind, in their sinful, corruptible flesh, has an insatiable appetite for power, fame, riches, etc. Some are so consumed with this, that they will engage in The Selling Of Ones Soul to the Devil. Tragically, one fails to realize that ''payments come due at The Moment Of Your Death...and then, it's too late to change ones mind.

The Law Made For The Lawless Ones

Based on 1 Timothy 1:9, The Law was made not for the righteous man, but for those who prefer to live in sin. And, once you've broken just one of God's Laws, that sin will condemn you to The Home Of The Damned for all Eternity. Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags, and Just One Sin Will Send Your Soul To Hell. God's Standard Is Perfection, and if you refuse to God's Free Love Gift, you'll find that you're The One To Blame When You Stand Before The Lord.

The Cup Of Man's Iniquity Is Filled

Just like a glass filled with liquid, the cup of mankind's iniquity keeps filling...and at times, it overflows from Earth to Heaven. And, The Lord has a cup as well...full of wrath...which one day will be poured out in Righteous Anger to counteract mankind's cup of iniquity. Every person's sin nature keeps adding to that cup, and the only way you'll wash away the overflow stain from that sinful cup is to accept God's Free Love Gift.

All Resistance To The Lord Will End

God Will Not Wait Forever for mankind to repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. And, one day, All Resistance To The Lord will end. First, When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, at The Judgment Of The Sheep And Goats...then at the end of the Millenium Of Peace, after The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, when The Lord creates a New Heaven and New Earth...where Sin Won't Rise A Second Time. There will be no more of this ''political corruption'', ''political correctness'' (The Lord Is Not Politically Correct), or anything against The Will Of The Lord. Those who think The Freedom Of Religion should be ''freedom from religion'', one day will be Given What Was Desired, and they will spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned, where They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ

Based on 2 Corinthians 5:10, The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ is ONLY for those who have God's Free Love Gift. However, The Judgment there will be the most solemn time for believers, as they will give an account for how they served the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords while on Earth, detailed here. It is NOT a judgment for sin, as that issue was settled at The Cross Of Christ. But, it will determine the eternal standing of one before The Lord...with rewards gained and lost.

The Judgment Of The Great White Throne

Based on Revelation 20:11-15, The Judgment Of The Great White Throne will be the final event The Lord will have with mortal man...in this case, the most somber day in all of history. Everyone there, from Adam to the end of the Millenium Of Peace, who REFUSED to God's Free Love Gift...will be there. The majority of these will have already spent time in The Home Of The Damned...and now, Hell is emptied...as it, and Death (the last enemy to be destroyed) will be cast into The Lake Of Fire...along with everyone at this horrifying Judgment. Each unsaved soul will have their lives replayed...every thought, word, and deed...whether hidden or in the open...will be shown for everyone to see. And, there will be No Question Of Guilt on the part of each individual there. They will be COMPELLED by the Truth of God's Word, to bow, and declare that Jesus Christ Is Lord...even though they would not accept Him while on Earth. Tragically, it is now TOO LATE for them to change their Eternal Destiny...The Lake Of Fire...where they will join Satan, his demonic hordes, The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace, and the False Prophet, for all Eternity, and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night. I pray that you will NOT be part of this group.

Millenium Of Peace

Based on numerous passages from the book of Isaiah and elsewhere, The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth will finally be REMOVED, and the ravaged planet, corrupted by sin for over 6000 years, will be restored at The Coming Of Christ to the incredible beauty not known since the time of Adam and Eve in The Garden Of Eden, before they fell into sin. Long life spans will be restored, there will be no more hurt and fear between mankind and the animal kingdom, there will be no more war or threat of crime, and With A Rod Of Iron, Christ Will Rule the nations. For Of Christ's Kingdom, There Shall Be No End, tragically at the end of Millenium Of Peace, Like A Roaring Lion, Satan will gather up a force as numerous as the sand of the sea, and surround the Holy City in a state of siege. But, God will destroy them with His Righteous Fire, and they will be raised to stand before The Judgment Of The Great White Throne...and afterwards, be cast into The Lake Of Fire...where they will join Satan, his demonic hordes, The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace, and the False Prophet, for all Eternity, and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

In Twinkling Of An Eye, The Rapture Comes

Based on 1 Corinthians 15:52, the Rapture Of The Church will occur in a time period so fast, that it can not be divided. Faster than it takes light to enter the eye and strike the retina, and faster than the time it takes for a neuro-electrical synapse firing in the brain to occur...it will happen so quickly, that those who are left behind will NOT have time to say ''good-bye''. For a video of how quick the Rapture Of The Church may occur, click here.

Those throughout history, with faith in Christ Alone to save them...because they are saved by Grace Through Faith, And Not Of Works, ''the dead in Christ shall rise first...then those that are alive and remain, will be caught up in the clouds to meet The Lord in the air, and shall forever be with The Lord'' (I Thessalonians 4:16-17). Those who are left behind will have REJECTED God's Free Love Gift, and will enter The Time Of Jacob's Trouble...where The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace will rule the world for seven years...a time of trouble that the world has never seen. Then, When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, He will be joined by His Bride, The Church, which was raptured seven years earlier...and With A Rod Of Iron, Christ Will Rule the nations during the Millenium Of Peace. Once the Rapture Of The Church occurs, There Is No Second Chance to join the Rapture. However, those who do accept God's Free Love Gift during The Time Of Jacob's Trouble will LIKELY be martyred by beheading. But, these will rule and reign with Christ during the Millenium Of Peace.


With A Rod Of Iron, Christ Will Rule

Based on Revelation 19:15, When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, He will COMPEL the rulers of all nations to yield their scepters to Him, during the Millenium Of Peace. The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth will have been removed, and Earth will be under the reign of its Rightful Ruler, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. Those who REFUSED God's Free Love Gift will NOT be allowed to enter Christ's Kingdom...and a time of joy not seen on Earth since the fall of man in Genesis 3; which resulted in the expulsion of our first parents, Adam and Eve, from The Garden Of Eden...and brought down The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth.

The Unsaved Will Regret Their Choice For All Eternity

The title of this poem is truly a sad statement to make. Sadly, Not All Will Repent of their sin, and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. To these, The Freedom Of Religion meant ''freedom from religion''...and they despise the statement that The Lord Is Not Politically Correct. Tragically, Those Too Blind To See, will have The Horror In Their Eyes, when they join Those Now In The Flames Of Hell, and realize that they are part of Those Not In God's Kingdom. You can change Your Eternal Destiny, and not be part of this group, by repenting of your sins, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

Of Christ's Kingdom, There Shall Be No End

Based on Isaiah 9:7, and a companion poem to Millenium Of Peace, and With A Rod Of Iron, Christ Will Rule, When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, He will COMPEL all Earthly potentates to YIELD their scepters to Him. Unlike all the kingdoms before, ruled by sinful souls, Christ's Kingdom will be pure in righteousness and equity. Only those who have repented of their sin, and have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour will be admitted into this Kingdom.

Followers Of Satan's Ways Will One Day Get The Shaft

Those Too Blind To See the folly of their sinful behavior, and following Satan's lying ways, will tragically realize too late that Satan always lies to his followers. He tells them that The Judgment Of The Great White Throne is something that they don't have to worry about, that the The Preaching Of The Cross is a bunch of foolishness. But, one day, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, Christ Alone, will have The Last Laugh. Everyone who has ever lived, one day at either The Bema Judgment Of Jesus Christ (if they accepted God's Free Love Gift...or at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, respectively... they will bow...Eagerly, Or Compelled by the Truth Of God's Word, and declare the Jesus Christ Is Lord. Even Satan and his demonic hordes will be forced to do so, just before being cast into The Lake Of Fire for all Eternity.

Against The Flesh And Blood, We Wrestle Not

Based on Ephesians 6:12, many believe that they're fighting against other individuals...but, in reality, it's the unseen powers of darkness in Satan's realm of wickedness, who are seemingly moving the Earth and everyone else to destruction. God's Protection from these evil forces are His Holy Word, The Books Of The Bible, The Blood Of Jesus, and The Whole Armor Of God, for those who have accepted God's Free Love Gift.

A Famine In The Land, Will One Day, Come

Based on Amos 8:11-12, one day, unrepentant man will be Given What Was Desired. God Has Always Been A Gentleman, and since mankind has wanted to remove every vestige of The Books Of The Bible from his existence...The Lord will cause a famine in the land...not of food, but in the Truth Of The Word Of God. This will be most pronounced during The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, after the Rapture Of The Church, and before When Christ Returns To Planet Earth. At that point, evil influence and unbelievers will be removed from Earth to The Home Of The Damned, where they will be tormented with Those Now In The Flames Of Hell...prior to The Judgment Of The Great White Throne. Only those who have accepted God's Free Love Gift will be ushered into the Millenium Of Peace.

Loving The Appearing Of The Lord

Based on 2 Timothy 4:8, one of The Five Eternal Crowns, The Crown Of Righteousness is laid up for those who love the appearing of The Lord at the Rapture Of The Church. Christ Alone, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords is the one who remove The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth, when He returns. Those who have accepted God's Free Love Gift long for the appearing of The Lord, and for the cry Behold, The Bridegroom Comes.

No One Knows The Things God Has Prepared

Based On Isaiah 64:4 and 1 Corinthians 2:9, no eye has seen, no ear has heard, nor has entered into the heart of man, the things that God has prepared for those who love Him. While we now see through a glass darkly, those who have gone on to be with The Lord...those who have accepted His Free Love Gift, now see Him face to face...and are experiencing these things firsthand. And, this joy will be for all in Christ to experience one day.

Without Witness Or A Preacher, How Shall People Hear??

Based on Romans 10:14, without the witness or preaching of The Gospel Truth...that Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son, left the glory of Heaven, to come to Earth to be born of a Virgin...to live and walk among us in all ways, except without sin, to die on an Old Rugged Cross for the sins of everyone who would ever live...would rise again on the Third Day according to the Scriptures...and is coming back again to rule and reign eternally...no one would hear this Good News. And, like was shared with me over 30 years ago, I now feel the need to share this with you...in the many poems that The Lord has given me...designed as a witness to the lost, and a ministry to the saved.

Full Counsel Of God Must Be Proclaimed

A companion poem to The Lord Is Not Politically Correct, and God's Word Is Not Here To Tickle Your Ears, the full counsel of God's Holy Word must be preached...calling sin for what it is...as The Lord, He Made The Rules, even If You're Offended By These Words. Because Other Gospels Preached will lead you only to The Home Of The Damned, and eventually to The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, where The Horror In Their Eyes will be fully realized, when they hear Christ's Words ''For You, I've Never Known''.

God, He Will Supply All Of Your Need

Based On Philippians 4:19, the key is that ''God will supply all of your needs according to His Riches and Glory in Christ Jesus''...note that the word is NEEDS, and NOT WANTS. For if we ask outside of His Will, or have sin in our hearts...He will not answer our request. However The Will Of The Lord is not for any to perish, but all should come to repentance. And, The Lord, He Did Command His Love To All, by dying on an Old Rugged Cross to pay for every sin that would ever be committed...and rising from the dead the Third Day, according to The Scriptures, to supply the need to restore us back to fellowship with Him, if we would repent of our sin, and accept His Free Love Gift.

God's Not A Genie, As Some Do Believe

Some people think that God is like a parachute cord, that one can pull in an emergency...or that He is like a Genie, to grant our every wish, want, and request...as if God should respond a certain way to a Christian when they say certain words. That teaching...known as ''positive confession'', smacks of sorcery. When we ask outside of His Will, or if we are hiding sin in our hearts, He will not hear our prayer...nor will He answer it. That includes if you're Going Through The Motions in The Sinners Prayer. The Lord knows your motives, words, and thoughts...and while you may fool others into thinking you're blessed by God, You Can't Fool The Lord, My Friend, and you'll be terrified when you hear the words ''For You've I've Never Known'', there at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne.

Woe To Them

Based on Isaiah 5:8, 18, 21-22, 10:1, 29:15, Hosea 7:13, and Jude 11...The Lord declares ''woe to them'' that do the things in this poem. But, even more so, woe to those who refuse God's Free Love Gift.

People Who Are Christians Just In Name

A companion poem to Going Through The Motions, many people nowadays are ''Christians in Name Only''. They may walk the walk, and talk the talk, but they never have repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift. You Can't Fool The Lord, My Friend, and The Lord Is Not Surprised by any of your actions. Instead of appearing at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ, these will appear at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, and they will hear the horrifying words from The Lord, ''Depart From Me, For You, I've Never Known''.

My Heart Breaks When Someone Spurns The Lord

A companion to Sadly Not All Will Repent, when I think of the souls that have been witnessed to through the ages, and rejected the Truth, in favor of Other Gospels Preached, it breaks my heart when someone spurns The Lord, and His Gospel. But, Christ commanded us to witness to all nations, that How Shall We Escape if we neglect so great salvation?? But, At Least One Chance Is Given There for everyone to make a choice to accept, or to reject God's Free Love Gift. And, as someone witnessed to those of us who are saved, we can do no less to those who are still have not repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift.

God Is No Respecter, There, Of Persons Anywhere, and The Lord God Shows No Partiality

Based on Acts 10:34, and Deuteronomy 10:19, The Lord does NOT play favorites. No matter where you were born, whether Jew or Gentile, rich or poor, race, nationality, etc., The One Thing God Requires is to believe on the One He has sent, in the Person of His Only Begotten Son, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, Jesus Christ. God's Standard Is Perfection, and no one on Earth can meet that requirement. Your Eternal Destiny, Heaven Or Hell, is determined by what you do with God's Free Love Gift.

You Can't Praise The Lord Through Clenched Teeth, There

While many people are Going Through The Motions, fooling people of the truthfulness of their relationship to Christ Alone, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, You Can't Fool The Lord, My Friend, and ''praising Him through clenched teeth'' is as rebellion...just as the sin of witchcraft (1 Samuel 15:23). The Lord Is Not Surprised by your actions, and When You Stand Before The Lord, the truth of all of your thoughts, words, and deeds will be shown for all to see...including whether or not you accepted God's Free Love Gift.

Two Places Where The Lord Cannot Be Found

A companion poem to Where God Can't Be Found, this poem notes that while Christ Alone did create all things, there are two places where The Lord cannot be found. Both of these are The Home Of The Damned...but it must be fairly stated that Hell Was Meant For Satan, his demonic hordes, and all who refused God's Free Love Gift. In The Pit Of Hell, which will eventually be cast into The Lake Of Fire...there is no joy, happiness, laughter, holiness, anything good, or anything of God. The Lord Did All He Could To Save Your Soul from these places, but Your Eternal Destiny will include these two places, where you and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night, because a Decision's Not Required To Go To Hell.

No Athiests Exist There In Hell Fire

Similar to the old saying ''there are no athiests in foxholes'', all Those Now In The Flames Of Hell, are all believers. Unfortunately for them, they did NOT do The One Thing God Requires while they were alive on Earth. They thought that The Preaching Of The Cross was foolishness...now they see that they are The One To Blame because they would not accept God's Free Love Gift. And, in these Two Places Where The Lord Cannot Be Found, prayer has no effect. For these, God's Grace is over, and they will face Christ Alone at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, where they will be Without Excuse for their actions...and they will be cast into The Lake Of Fire, and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night, with Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone else who refused God's Free Love Gift.

Every Idle Word That's Spoken There

Based on Matthew 12:36, every word spoken, every deed done, and every thought that went through ones mind... whether for good or evil, each individual will give account of at The Judgment. This applies to both believers, who have accepted God's Free Love Gift, as they stand before The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ...as well as to those who refused God's Free Love Gift, and they appear at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne. Your Life Is Being Recorded, and You'll Answer Only For Yourself, When You Stand Before The Lord...and there will be No Question Of Guilt on what you said, thought, or did.

They Profess They Know The Lord, But Their Works Deny

Based On Titus 1:16, there are many who profess that they know The Lord, but their works actually deny Him. Not Everyone Will Enter Heaven, and You Can't Fool The Lord, My Friend. There will be No Question Of Guilt When You Stand Before The Lord one day...including Every Idle Word That's Spoken There, and if you preferred Other Gospels Preached, rather than The Cross Of Christ.

There Is None Good But One, That Is God

Based on Matthew 19:17, Mark 10:18, and Luke 18:19, the text is from the story of The Rich Young Ruler...who came to Jesus and asked Him what he should do to inherit Eternal Life. Christ told Him, ''Why do you call me good?? There is none good but one, that is God''. While Jesus Christ is God In The Flesh, He shows that God's Standard Is Perfection, and that no one on Earth can meet that standard...except for repenting of their sin, and accepting God's Free Love Gift.

Two Questions

The idea for this poem came from a lapel pin I saw once...it had two question marks. Curious, I asked the gentleman who was wearing them what that meant, and he provided the ''two questions''. First, ''if you were to die in the next five seconds, would you know beyond the shadow of a doubt, where your eternal home would be??''...and the second question was ''If you were standing before Almighty God right now, and He said 'Give Me one reason why I should let you into My Heaven', what would you say??''. My answers would be ''I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that Heaven would be my Eternal Home''...and ''Only Because of what Christ Alone, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords did for me on Calvary's Old Rugged Cross''. While the answers are there, you can NOT just ''take these and apply them to yourself'', UNLESS you too, repent of your sins, and accept God's Free Love Gift. Lip Service Isn't Good Enough, and for those who try it, they will hear the horrifying words at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne...as Christ Alone, telling them ''Depart From Me...For You I've Never Known.

I Stake My Eternity On Christ

In answer to the Two Questions, I stake my eternity on Christ Alone, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, and what He did for me on The Cross Of Calvary, to pay for every sin I would ever commit. If I'm wrong, I won't lose much when I die...but, for those who refuse God's Free Love Gift, The Price Of Being Wrong will be greater than they could pay.

Seven Fundamental Truths That I Do Believe

A companion poem to my Statement Of Faith, this poem tells of seven fundamental Bible Truths that I do believe. These are that God's Word is totally error free...Jesus Christ, is God come in the Flesh, has always existed eternally with His Father... that Christ was born of a Virgin (to bypass the blood curse because of mankind's sin)... that Christ's Death on The Cross paid the cost of sin, and for those who accepted God's Free Love Gift, they were reconciled to God...that Christ arose from the dead in victory on the third day, according to the Scriptures...that we're saved by Grace Through Faith, And Not Of Works...and that When Christ Returns To Planet Earth, all those rejecting Him will be sentenced at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne to The Lake Of Fire, to be tormented for all Eternity.

Destruction And Hell, They Are Never Filled

Based On Proverbs 27:20, despite many souls every day plunging toward destruction, and entering The Home Of The Damned, on The Moment Of Their Death, both these places are never filled, nor are they bursting at the seams. One day, at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, these will be emptied...and everyone there will be cast into The Lake Of Fire with Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone who refused God's Free Love Gift.

According To The Scriptures

Based On 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, everything prophesied in The Books Of The Bible, will one day be fulfilled in their entireity...for Thy Word Is Sealed In Heaven, and no matter what man may try to do with The Changing Of God's Word, he will see too late that he is powerless to stop The Lord. Even Satan is a created being with LIMITED POWER... but Jesus Christ Is God Almighty, With UNLIMITED POWER. And, those who feel that they can circumvent what The Lord does, they will find out too late that The Price Of Being Wrong will be far greater than they can pay.

The Scriptures Are Not Open To Private Interpretation

Based On 2 Peter 1:20, and a companion poem to The Changing Of God's Word, many people would rather change God's Word to suit their desires. But, God's Word Is Final Authority, and God's Word Is Not Here To Tickle Your Ears. Those adding to, or taking away from things in God's Word, will pay a huge price, Eternally...and these may be part of Those Not In God's Kingdom. For further details, click here.

The Rapture Will Occur So Fast

Based on 1 Corinthians 15:52, The Rapture will occur so fast...in an atomos of time. In short, in a period of time that happens so quick, that it cannot be divided. It'll occur faster than the time it takes for a neuro-electrical synapse firing in the brain to occur... and faster than the time it takes light to enter the eye and strike the retina. For a look at possibly how quick that may be, when The Rapture does occur, click here. Only those who have repented of their sins, and placed their faith in Christ Alone to save them, and who have accepted God's Free Love Gift before it, will be included in this glorious event. While one can still be saved after the Rapture, Martyrdom (likely beheading) will be the price of salvation during The Time Of Jacob's Trouble...the last seven years of human history, before the time When Christ Returns To Planet Earth.

The Heart Is Wicked, And Full Of Deceit

Based on Jeremiah 17:9, the heart of everyone upon the Earth is wicked and full of deceit...so much so, that no one (except The Lord) can know the true extent of man's evil and depravity. There Is None Good But One, That Is God, and God's Standard Is Perfection. Without repenting of your sin, and accepting God's Free Love Gift, you will enter the torment of Hell at The Moment Of Your Death, and be sentenced at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne to suffer in The Lake Of Fire for all Eternity, where Eternal Torment, Not A Joke.

You Can't Take It With You, But Can Send It On Ahead

At The Moment Of Your Death, every bit of wealth, possessions, etc. that you accumulated through your life on Earth will be left behind. People have been deceived into thinking they can put certain things in their coffins, and that it'll go with them to ''the other side''. Truth be told, only Heaven Or Hell is where you go the moment your heart stops beating...and everyone is One Heartbeat Away from Death. For those who repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift, the works they do for The Lord are ''sent ahead'', and they'll be rewarded at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ. Tragically, for those who choose to reject The Lord, the only thing sent ahead will be their sins...including The One Sin Unforgiven...and that will send them to The Home Of The Damned forever.

I Know That My Redeemer Lives

Based on Job 19:25, and a companion poem to both my Statement Of Faith, and Seven Fundamental Truths That I Do Believe, I know that My Redeemer, Christ Alone, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, is alive and well, and that The Lord Is In Control, The Lord Is Not Surprised by anything in His Creation, and The Lord Is Not Politically Correct, and I Stake My Eternity On Christ. If you have not yet repented of your sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, I pray that you will do so before The Moment Of Your Death, for After Death, Belief Too Late to change Your Eternal Destiny.

If You See The Man Of Sin, You've Been Left Behind

Many times throughout history, people have attributed the title of Antichrist, The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace to many people...including religious leaders, empirical despots, etc. The truth is, the identity of the most evil person that will ever walk the Earth, won't be revealed until after the Rapture Of The Church. While this person... who will ultimately be Satan Incarnate...may be alive on Earth at this moment...the truth is that you DON'T want to know who he is!! Because His Truth Refused, God Sends Delusion, and the world will believe the lie that when he first appears, he is ''the saviour of the world''. But, in reality, he will ultimately make the regimes of Hitler, Mao, and Stalin, among others...pale by comparison. And, if you do realize his identity, you will realize that you were LEFT BEHIND when millions of people, dead and alive, vanished from planet Earth, in the Rapture Of The Church.

The Lord Does Not Want You To Go To Hell

The title of this poem says it all. But, while The Lord does not want you to go to Hell, and The Lord Did All He Could To Save Your Soul, He will NOT force you to accept His Free Love Gift. Your Eternal Destiny depends upon your choice.

The Blood Of Jesus Cleanses From All Sin

Based on 1 John 1:7, the Precious Blood Of Christ Alone is sufficient to cleanse the repentant sinner from every sin they've ever done or will do...once they accept God's Free Love Gift. We're saved on what we believe...NOT how we behave...however, According To The Scriptures, ''If any one is in Christ, they are a new creature... The Old Things Are Passed Away, and all things are become new''; and we're admonished Don't Crucify The Lord Again...as no further sacrifice is necssary. However, those who are just Going Through The Motions will find out that Lip Service Isn't Good Enough When You Stand Before The Lord.

God Gives Grace To The Humble; He Resists The Proud

Based on James 4:6, those who are prideful and self-righteous, as the Pharisees of Jesus' day...will find out too late that they are part of Those Not In God's Kingdom. While the Pharisee, who boasted of his deeds to be seen of men...the publican, couldn't even lift his face toward Heaven. But, he simply prayed ''God, have mercy on me, a sinner''. Unlike the Pharisee, the publican went home justified before The Lord. Those who repent of their sins, and receive God's Free Love Gift, realize that they are undeserving...and are Humbled And In Awe before The Lord. Unfortunately, those who are full of pride, and believe The Doom Of Satan's Lie, and think that God will automatically let them into Heaven, will find out too late that Heaven Is Not Owed To You upon The Moment Of Your Death.

The Lord, He Grades Upon The Cross, And Not Upon A Curve

Unlike the grading system in school, where a ''curve'' is in place to make grades seem better than they really are; God's Standard Is Perfection, and the one standard that The Lord will grade your life on is whether or not you accepted God's Free Love Gift...as that is The Only Thing That Matters at The Judgment.

All My Prayers Are Only To The Lord

A companion poem to I Worship Only Jesus Christ... Christ Alone, The King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords is not just the ONLY Way To Heaven...but He is the ONLY One who hears every word you speak, and every prayer you pray. If you're praying to statues, idols, objects, people (dead or alive), or other ''gods''...and expecting them to hear and act on your prayer, you're basically wasting your time. Followers Of Satan's Ways Will One Day Get The Shaft...because There Is None Beside The Lord. Only repenting of your sin, and only by accepting God's Free Love Gift by praying with the attitude of The Sinners Prayer with a contrite heart...will you escape The Home Of The Damned upon The Moment Of Your Death.

The Spirit Says, In The Last Days

Based on 1 Timothy 4:1-3, The Holy Spirit says that in the last days, some will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons. This poem lists many of the things these people will embrace as ''gospel''...yet these are totally contrary to The Word Of God. Those who are part of this group will find that they are part of Those Not In God's Kingdom, as at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, Christ will say to these ''Depart From Me, For You I've Never Known. These will spend Eternity in The Lake Of Fire, with Satan, his demonic hordes, The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace, The False Prophet, and everyone else who rejected God's Free Love Gift.

His Blood Be On Us, And On Our Children, Too

Based on Matthew 27:24-25, the angry mob wanting Pontius Pilate to crucify Jesus Christ, replied this statement when Pilate said ''I am innocent of the Blood of this Just Man''. Ironically, the words were prophetic...in that The Blood Of Jesus Cleanses From All Sin, and Christ Alone, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords was to shed His Precious Blood in His Death on that Old Rugged Cross, for every sin that would ever be committed by those who would ever live...for ''without the shedding of Blood, there is no remission for sin (Hebrews 9:22). Those who repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift will have The Blood Of Christ applied to them, and their sins will be washed away. However, those who spurn The Blood Of Christ, trampling it underfoot, will regret their choice for all Eternity.

Christ's Love, And Our Sins, Held Him To The Cross

It wasn't the ropes or nails, around and through, Christ's Hands and Feet, that held Him to The Cross on which He was crucified. In reality, it was His Love, and our sins that held Him there. Having no sin Himself, The Lamb Of God, Christ Alone, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, God In The Flesh, became a Divine Substitute...and was scourged and crucified for the sins of every man and woman that would ever walk the face of the Earth. While The Blood Of Jesus Cleanses From All Sin, and God's Free Love Gift is a Free Gift To All Who Would Receive It, the act itself should be enough to cause everyone to repent and bow before The Lord in confession, humility, and gratitude for what He did, and serve Him all the days of their earthly lives. Those who do will spend Eternity in The Home Of The Redeemed, where joy will never end. But, Sadly, Not All Will Repent, trampling His Blood underfoot...and these will be sentenced at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne to The Lake Of Fire, The Home Of The Damned, for all Eternity, where They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

It's A Fearful Thing To Fall Into The Lord's Hands

Based on Hebrews 10:31, those who refuse to repent of their sin, and God's Free Love Gift will realize too late the truth of the words of this poem. The Lord not only sees every deed that is done... but He also knows every motive, word, and thought that led to the deed...good or evil. The Lord Is Not Surprised by anything that occurs in all of Creation...but the unrepentant will find that It'll Be A Shock One Day when they stand before The Lord at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, and they'll be condemned to The Lake Of Fire, The Home Of The Damned, for all Eternity...and They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

Salvation Is A Gift, Not Earned Or Bought

A companion poem to You Can't Earn God's Salvation; with the exception of Biblical Christianity, the world's religions say you can ''earn'' or ''buy'' your way to Heaven. But, as the title of this poem notes, ''Salvation is a Gift, not earned or bought''. While some may consider the graphic at the bottom of this websites homepage as false... Salvation is a free gift to all who would receive it. The Bible notes that Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags; literally bloody menstrual cloths before The Lord. Just One Sin Will Send Your Soul To Hell, and Just One Thing Will Save Your Soul...by repenting of your sin, and accepting God's Free Love Gift. Your Eternal Destiny depends upon your choice.

God's Riches At Christ's Expense: The Meaning Of Grace

Someone once said ''the meaning of Grace is God's Riches At Christ's Expense''. Christ, who knew no sin, became sin for us...dying in our place on an Old Rugged Cross...and rose again the third day According To The Scriptures, to complete the victory won for all who would repent of their sin, and God's Free Love Gift. No One Knows The Things God Has Prepared for those who love Him...but the redeemed will one day rule and reign with Christ...partakers of the riches of His Kingdom that will never end. While God's Grace is undeserved, it's a License To Serve, Not License To Sin; as it's the least we could do for Him. If you have not yet repented of your sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, Sinner, Seek The Lord Today, While He May Be Found. For After Death, Belief Too Late, and you will regret the choice of spurning this Grace for all Eternity.

Our Sufferings Now Do Not Compare With Glory That Awaits

Based On Romans 8:17-19, those who have accepted God's Free Love Gift, many of these throughout history have been mocked, scorned, laughed at, persecuted, tortured, and even murdered for proclaiming that Christ Alone, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords is the ONLY Way To Heaven...and that Salvation Is A Free Gift, Not Earned Or Bought. While these suffer persecution as Our Lord did, No One Knows The Things That God Has Prepared for those who love and serve Him...and when the Redeemed get to glory, the title of this poem will ring true...and as the classic hymn notes...''It Will Be Worth It All''. Tragically for those who refuse God's Free Love Gift, the sufferings on this earth will pale in comparison after they die, when they discover that the subject of Eternal Torment, Not A Joke in The Home Of The Damned for all Eternity.

If The Lord Marks Sins There, Who Shall Stand??

Based On Psalm 130:3, the answer to this question is NONE...EXCEPT for those who repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. God's Standard Is Perfection, Just One Sin Will Send Your Soul To Hell, and Just One Thing Will Save Your Soul...and it is The Only Thing That Matters When You Stand Before The Lord.

If The Gospel's Hidden There, It's Hidden To The Lost

Based On 2 Corinthians 4:3, those who have not yet repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, have been spiritually blinded by Satan and his demon hordes...so they can not see the Gospel Light, which would outshine the darkness of sin in their lives. Satan And His Hordes Want You To Burn, and would prefer that you listen to Other Gospels Preached, rather than The Preaching Of The Cross. But, When You Stand Before The Lord, your answer to the question of ''What Will You Do With Jesus Christ??'' determines Your Eternal Destiny...either Heaven Or Hell...either The Home Of The Redeemed, or The Home Of The Damned.

Jesus Christ Is God Almighty, With Unlimited Power

The title of the poem says it all. Though at times, it seems throughout history, that sin has gained the upper hand... The Lord Is In Control, The Lord Is Never Late, and The Lord Is Not Surprised by what goes on throughout Creation. Creator of the universe, He's The Alpha And Omega...knowing the Beginning from the End. While Like A Roaring Lion, looking who he may devour...Satan is LIMITED on what he can actually do by The Lord's Restraining Hand and Power. And, one day in The Lake Of Fire for all Eternity...Satan, his demon hordes, and everyone else who refused to repent of their sins and accept God's Free Love Gift, they will bow down in The Home Of The Damned, and declare that Jesus Christ Is Lord, to the Glory Of God The Father. On the other hand, those who accept God's Free Love Gift will rule and reign with Him for all Eternity.

Self Is Navigating...The Acronym For Sin

Acronyms are a way to abbreviate long sayings...for example, SBC for the Southern Baptist Convention. The use of these abbreviations makes it easier in writing articles, etc., without having to list the entire meaning of the group, etc. each time. For sin, ''the breaking of The Law'' (1 John 3:4), a perfect acronym would be ''Self Is Navigating''...the individual is directing the affairs of their life, answering the question of Who Is Seated Upon Your Life's Throne??. For if Christ Alone is not your Saviour and Lord, take heed that Tomorrow Is Promised To No One, and After Death, Belief Too Late to change Your Eternal Destiny.

God Is Not A Man, That He Should Lie

Based on Numbers 23:19, God is Holy, Righteous, and Perfect. He can NOT sin, lie, or go back on His Word. Everything that has been prophesied has been, or will be fulfilled, as The Alpha And Omega, knows the beginning from the end, and everything in between. The Lord Is Not Surprised by anything that has occurred, or has yet to occur, throughout Eternity. Even before the foundation of the world, God knew that mankind would rebel, and would need a Saviour...in the Person of His Son, Jesus Christ...who was like us in all ways, except WITHOUT sin. He chose to come to Earth, to be born of a Virgin, to live and walk among us, then be scourged and crucified on an Old Rugged Cross...to rise again The Third Day According To The Scriptures, and that one day, He will return to rule and reign in Power and Glory. Those who repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift will rule and reign with Him one day. Those who refuse, will hear the horrifying words at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne... ''Depart From Me...For You, I've Never Known.

Israel Shall Stand Alone One Day

The world sees Israel and the Jew as ''the source of all its problems''...and truly, Jerusalem, A Burdensome Stone has drawn the ire of the entire world. One day, every one who has been Touching The Apple Of God's Eye will feel the Wrath of God in Judgment. After the Rapture Of The Church, as prophesied by Ezekiel...Russia, the Muslims, and others will attack Israel...which by this time, will be ALONE in the battle. But, there will be Intervention By The Lord that saves Israel from certain destruction. At the end of The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, Israel will see the error of their ways, and call upon the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords, Jesus Christ, Their Messiah, to save them...and He will, with His Return to Earth. With the Millenium Of Peace, the hour of persecution for Israel, and God's Chosen People, the Jews, will be finished forever...and they will receive all the blessings promised to them, since the time of Abraham (Genesis 12). Those who repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift, will receive these blessings as well. Sadly, Not All Will Repent...including those bent on seeing the destruction of Israel...and they will spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned.

The Lord Is A Witness To Everything You Do

A companion poem to A Life On Trial, Your Life Is Being Recorded, and No Question Of Guilt, among others... everything you do or think...hidden, in the open, discussed with others, or kept to yourself... The Lord sees every aspect of your deeds...motives, words, and thoughts. God's Standard Is Perfection, and You'll Answer Only For Yourself When You Stand Before The Lord one day... giving an account for all of these...including Every Idle Word That's Spoken There. No One Gets Off Scot Free at The Judgment, and what you do with God's Free Love Gift will determine whether you are at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ, or The Judgment Of The Great White Throne... and whether your Your Eternal Destiny is Heaven or Hell.

Without Holiness In Life, No One Will See The Lord

Based on Hebrews 12:14, Just One Sin Will Send Your Soul To Hell, and God's Standard Is Perfection. Being holy means ''set apart for God''...but with mans sin nature, everyone is destined for The Home Of The Damned, unless they repent of sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. When one truly does that, and is not just Going Through The Motions, there is no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1)...and these are seen by God as righteous as His Son, Christ Alone, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. These will not only see The Lord one day, but rule and reign with Him forever. By contrast, those who reject God's Free Love Gift, will regret their choice for all Eternity. While they will see The Lord, it will be at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne... just before they are sentenced to The Lake Of Fire for all Eternity... and they will see that Eternal Torment, Not A Joke.

The Lord Is In His Holy Temple There

Based On Habakkuk 2:20, The Lord is in His Holy Temple there, and all the Earth is to keep silence before Him, because compared to His Righteousness, everyone on Earth is Without Excuse. Since God's Standard Is Perfection, and with The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth is means that without repentance, and faith in Christ Alone to save you, Without Holiness In Life, No One Will See The Lord. However, One Day, On Bended Knee, everyone will face The Lord...at either The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ for those who have repented of their sins, and accepted God's Free Love Gift...or The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, for those who have rejected The Grace Of God.

One Day, Heaven's Gates, Forever Close

A companion poem to God Will Not Wait Forever...one day, The Grace Of God will end...and no one else will be allowed to enter Heaven. If You Wait 'Til It's Too Late, you'll find that you're The One To Blame, and you'll be Without Excuse When You Stand Before The Lord.

The Warning

A companion poem to You Can't Say That You Weren't Warned, God warned people throughout history the consequences of disobeying His Words, and The Commandments Ten...as well as warning every single person on Earth of what would happen, if they refused to accept God's Free Love Gift, in the Person of His Son, Jesus Christ, King Of Kings, and Lord Of Lords, as their Lord and Saviour. Will you heed this warning, or ignore it at your eternal peril??

Why Satan And The World Both Hate The Jews

Throughout history, it seems that nearly everyone has hated the Jews, God's Chosen People. This poem, from the Truth of God's Word, gives the reasons why not only the world, but Satan and his demon hordes hate both the Jews, and the nation of Israel. This hatred can best be summed up in three ways:

1) It was through the Patriarch, Abraham, and his children, Isaac and Jacob, that the twelve tribes of Israel, would be born.

2) Through the Jews, much of God's Word, The Books Of The Bible, was penned.

3) Through the Jews, Christ Alone, God's Only Begotten Son, would come into the world, to die on an Old Rugged Cross for the sins of mankind, and be resurrected on The Third Day, According To The Scriptures. Those who repented of their sin, and accepted God's Love Gift would be FREED from the power of sin over their eternal destiny.

Also, According To The Scriptures, even though the Jews broke the Covenant God gave them time after time, The Promised Land and The Covenant that God gave to them is theirs FOREVER. In the last days, Jerusalem, A Burdensome Stone to the nations of the world will end up bringing The Judgment of God upon them. Plus, just prior to The Coming Of Christ to Earth a second time, The Believing Remnant of Jews will realize the error of their ways so long ago, and cry ''Blessed Is He Who Comes In The Name Of The Lord''...which marks the point When Christ Returns To Planet Earth.

Satan and his demon hordes, along with the rest of the world, want to make God out as a liar...by totally destroying the Jews...in essence, the title of this poem. However, all their evil schemes will be for nothing, as Christ will return to Earth, to rule and reign in power and glory, with the Millenium Of Peace. Only those who repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift will rule and reign with Him. Those who refuse, will face The Lord at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, and be sentenced to The Lake Of Fire, The Home Of The Damned, for all Eternity.


These Things You Shall Not Do

In growing up, you probably remember many times, your parents telling you ''not to do something, or you'll pay the consequences''...such as putting your hand on a hot stove burner. And just like caring parents, God The Father tells all mankind...men, women, boys, and girls...that there are certain things you shall not do. While this poem is not an exhaustive reference of things that ''Thus Saith The Lord'', from The Books Of The Bible...many things, including The Commandments Ten...are here. Sadly, one thing that may say that ''they shall not do'' is repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. To those who decide to make this choice, they will face The Lord at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, and be sentenced to The Lake Of Fire, The Home Of The Damned, for all Eternity.

Worthy Is The Lamb For Sinners Slain

Based On Revelation 5:12, this is the cry of praise from all the redeemed in Heaven to Jesus Christ, God In The Flesh, the Precious Son Of God, who lived a perfect, sinless life, dying for all on an Old Rugged Cross, and rising again on The Third Day According To The Scriptures. Christ Alone, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords is the ONLY One to whom ALL Praise, Honor, Glory, Worship, and Blessing are due. He also the only one permitted to open the Seals, Bowls, And Trumpets of God's Wrath upon the Earth. The believers will also cast down The Five Eternal Crowns that they receive...no matter the number...at the feet of Jesus Christ, saying that Lord, You Deserve These Crowns Much More Than Me. However, unless you have repented of your sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, you will NOT be part of this group.

Lord, You Deserve These Crowns Much More Than Me

A companion poem to The Five Eternal Crowns...that will be awarded to the redeemed at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ, all those who have repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, will bow before His Throne, proclaiming in worship that Worthy Is The Lamb For Sinners Slain...and realize that they are UNDESERVING of anything...including The Grace Of God. As a result, they will say the title of this poem...truly that The Lord deserves the crowns more than them. However, unless you have repented of your sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, you will NOT be part of this group.

The Signs Of A Cult

As the old saying goes, ''Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery''. However, in the case of ''faiths'', Satan, Like A Roaring Lion, has set up numerous religions, faiths, etc., to spread the concept that ''there are many ways to Heaven and Salvation''. However, that will turn out to be The Doom Of Satan's Lie. In these various groups, there are several signs that qualify it as a ''cult''...including The Changing Of God's Word (adding to, or removing from it) to suit their desires...stripping the Divinity of Jesus Christ, reducing Him to ''just a man'', etc.,... denying the doctrine that ''you're saved by Grace Through Faith, And Not Of Works,... dividing the loyalty of their followers,...and denying that God's Word Is Final Authority,... among other things. Sadly, these will be part of Those Not In God's Kingdom, and they will be horrified at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, when Christ Alone, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords tells them For You, I've Never Known, before they are cast into The Home Of The Damned, The Lake Of Fire, for all Eternity, where They Shall Be Tormented Day And Night.

The Sabbath Is Not Just Another Day

Christ Alone, the Second Person in The Holy Trinity (God The Father, Jesus Christ The Son, The Holy Spirit), created the universe in six days. Then, on the seventh day, He rested...not because He was tired...but because Creation was perfect and complete, and nothing more needed to be done. He declared the seventh day to be the Sabbath, a Holy Day, for not only for rest, but where worship of The Lord, the study of The Books Of The Bible, is PRIMARY. However, after our first parents, Adam and Eve, in the Garden Of Eden, sinned against God, The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth has basically transformed the Sabbath into ''just another day during the week'', for either work to earn money, play, or anything except for what it was originally designed for. However, one of The Commandments Ten says that ''We are to remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it Holy''. And, as God's Holy Word notes, if we break one part of God's Law, we have broken ALL of it. And, like it or not, it's true that For All Have Sinned, and come short of God's Glory. God's Standard Is Perfection, all Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags before The Lord, and only by repenting of your sin, and accepting God's Free Love Gift, will you be allowed to enter Heaven at The Moment Of Your Death.

God's Glory Won't Be Shared With Anyone

Based on Isaiah 42:8, The Power, Majesty, Righteousness, and Glory (among other things) of The Lord God of all Creation, will NOT be shared with anyone...whether angels or mankind. His Ways are not our ways, and it's not because The Lord has an ''ego'' as most of reprobate, sinful mankind does. It is because He is Creator of all things, and to whom we owe the highest form of reverence, love, obedience, and worship...because The Lord, He Did Command His Love To All, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, and He rose again the Third Day, According To The Scriptures. However, throughout the centuries, many have tried to usurp or steal God's Glory, and have met with grave consequences. Starting with Lucifer, the covering cherub (who originally guarded the Throne Of God), he led one third of the angelic realm in revolt against The Lord. Lucifer became Satan (the accuser/the adversary), his beaten army of angels were changed into demons...and all of them were cast out of Heaven. Hell Was Meant For Satan, and his demonic hordes, and not for mankind. But, after he deceived our first parents, Adam and Eve, in the Garden Of Eden, everyone developed a sin nature. It was shown through The Books Of The Bible, that For All Have Sinned, and The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth continues to this day, with The Groaning Of Creation. This lesson, and so many others, in The Books Of The Bible... including that one is saved by Grace Through Faith, And Not Of Works... are things that everyone would be well to learn, and heed. Your Eternal Destiny is determined on what you do with God's Free Love Gift.

Once You Close Your Eyes In Death, Eternal Fate Is Sealed

A companion poem to There Is No Second Chance, once you close your eyes in death, you have reached The Point Of No Return, concerning Your Eternal Destiny. Depending on what you did with God's Free Love Gift, it will either be The Home Of The Damned, or The Home Of The Redeemed. And, if you chose to reject God's Free Love Gift, There Will Be No Appeal There, When You Stand Before The Lord. Tomorrow Is Promised To No One, and Your Decision Will Be Honored, by the Choices that you made.

You've Broken One Of God's Laws, Friend; You've Broken Every One

Based on James 2:10, God's Standard Is Perfection...and if you've broken JUST ONE of His Laws, or just one law on Earth...you are GUILTY OF BREAKING EVERY LAW. And because there will be No Question Of Guilt When You Stand Before The Lord, if this one single blotch of sin is on your record, you will spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned. The only way to get that blotch removed is to truly repent of sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift.

I Glory In The Cross Of Christ, And Nothing That I've Done

Based on Galatians 6:14, the only thing that I can glory and rejoice in is The Cross Of Christ. Both Mine, and Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags, and nothing that anyone can do, except repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift, will get them into Heaven, The Home Of The Redeemed. Those who are ''Christians In Name Only'', without true repentance and faith, will hear the terrifying words from The Lord Jesus Christ Himself at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne... ''Depart From Me...For You, I've Never Known''.

There Is No Fear Of God Before Their Eyes

Based On Romans 3:18, there is no fear (respect, reverence) of God before the eyes of the unsaved. They feel that they can do whatever they want, and there won't be any consequences...either in this life, or at The Moment Of Their Death. But, God's Judgment Coming When Least Expected, and the fear of God for the lost will be at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, when Christ Alone, the King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords, will be The Worst Nightmare There Faced.

If You Sow The Wind, My Friend; The Whirlwind, You'll Reap (Hosea 8:7)

Based On Hosea 8:7, those sowing the winds of sin, they'll reap the whirlwinds of it, like a massive category 5 hurricane or tornado. While it may start as a soft breeze at first, like an approaching hurricane or tornado, the winds of sin ramp up until they engulf you. And, at The Moment Of Your Death, which will come without warning...just like realizing the hurricane or tornado is upon you, you'll realize there is no escape. Some have related the sounds of a being in the eyewall of a hurricane, or the center of a tornado, to be akin to ''demons screaming''...and that's exactly what will await you in The Home Of The Damned, unless you repent of your sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift.

Simplicity Of Gospel Truth, Many Do, Reject

The One Thing God Requires is to ''Believe On The One He Has Sent''; Christ Alone, who left the Glory of Heaven, to come to Earth, to be born of a Virgin, to live like us in all ways, EXCEPT WITHOUT SIN, to die on an Old Rugged Cross, and rise from the dead on the Third Day, According To The Scriptures. Yet, many people think you have to add works, pay money, belong to a certain church, etc. to be acceptable to God. The thing is, Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags...literally bloody, menstrual cloths... and there is NOTHING we can do to earn Salvation, except for what is noted above. And, sadly, because of the simplicity of the Gospel Truth, many will reject it. And, those who do, will be Destined For The Lake Of Fire, to spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned, with Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone else who rejected God's Free Love Gift.

What A Difference There Will Be In Twinkling Of An Eye

The imminent Rapture Of The Church will occur in ''atomos'' of time...a moment of time so fast, that it can not be humanly divided. It'll occur faster than the time it takes for a neuro-electrical synapse firing in the brain to occur...and faster than the time it takes from light to enter the eye and strike the retina. Some have said it'll be even faster than 1/1000th of second. In that flash of time, when they hear the trumpet blast, the shout from The Lord, and The Cry ''Behold, The Bridegroom Comes'', all those since the day of Pentecost, who have put their faith in Christ Alone to save them...both dead and alive...will be removed from the Earth to join Christ in the Heavens. The dead in Christ will be resurrected from their graves first. Then, those alive in Christ who remain, will rise...and both groups will be instantly changed into incorruptible flesh, in their new resurrection bodies that will never again grow old, gain weight, get sick, need to eat, drink, sleep, or deal with the curse of sin, or its wages...death. And, in that moment of time, all of these will rise up to meet The Lord in the air, and immediately head to The Home Of The Redeemed, where The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ will occur. In that same instant, the restraint of evil by The Holy Spirit will end, as The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, descends upon the Earth, ruled by The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace, which will bring a time of evil that the world has never seen. There is no prior event that must occur before The Rapture Of The Church...an event that is growing Closer By The Second...and as fast As Lightning Comes From East To West. There Is No Second Chance after death to accept God's Free Love Gift, and no chance to be part of The Rapture after it occurs. But, If You Wait 'Til It's Too Late, you'll find that you alone are The One To Blame.

Satan, Father Of All Lies, Speaks His Language, There (John 8:44)

Based on John 8:44, Satan, the father of all lies, speaks his native language. He was a liar and murderer from the beginning, and the Truth of God's Word is not in him. He does this, because if he spoke the truth, people would flee from him, like the plague!! Originally the covering cherub, Lucifer, filled with pride, and deceived one third of the angelic realm into thinking they could overthrow The Lord. They were promptly cast out of Heaven, with Lucifer becoming Satan...the accuser, and the adversary. His beaten army of beautiful angels were changed into horrific looking demons. Their next target was to deceive Adam and Eve, our first parents in The Garden Of Eden, and as before, he deceived them into a lie that ''God was holding out on them''. They were cast out of The Garden Of Eden, as The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth began to take hold, spreading like wildfire. Just as today, the plague of sin got so bad, that As In The Days Of Noah, God had to execute Judgment on the world. Millions died in the Flood of Noah...and over the centuries, millions more have died in their sin, and gone to The Home Of The Damned, as they chose to believe the lies of Satan, rather than The Preaching Of The Cross, and the need to accept God's Free Love Gift.

Who Offends These Little Ones, Who Believe In Me (Matthew 18:6)

Based on Matthew 18:6, stern words of warning from Christ Alone; that those guilty of offending those preaching the witness of The Gospel Truth, or destroying the innocence of little children... whether by kidnapping, molestation, abuse, abortion, etc.; it'd be better for them at The Judgment that they were sentenced to death upon Earth, by having a millstone put about their neck, and they were drowned in the deepest ocean. Children Are A Heritage Of The Lord, and ''such is The Kingdom Of God''. And, those who reject The Gospel Truth, are not just rejecting those who are sharing it, as The Lord commanded... they are rejecting The Lord as well. And, if they remain unrepentant of their sin, at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, The Lord will be The Worst Nightmare There Faced by each of these who refused God's Free Love Gift.

If People Knew The Truth Of Satan's Real Identity

If people really saw Satan...who is Like A Roaring Lion, moving about, seeking whom he may devour and destroy...for what he REALLY is...they would NOT stay around him, but they would flee in terror!! But, to mask the truth of his real identity, Satan, Father Of All Lies, Speaks His Native Tongue, working to keep people from hearing The Preaching Of The Cross, and to make them think they have plenty of time to accept God's Free Love Gift. But, he does not tell them that The Moment Of Your Death will come WITHOUT WARNING, and that Tomorrow Is Promised To No One...let alone the next 5 seconds. There Is No Second Chance after death, and only one of two destinations... Heaven Or Hell...either The Home Of The Redeemed, or The Home Of The Damned will be your home for all Eternity...depending on whether or not you accepted God's Free Love Gift.

Satan's Forces Cannot Cross The Line Of Christ's Blood, Shed

Satan, and all the hosts of Hell, are so blinded by their insane depravity, that they still think they can do whatever they desire, in causing grief, destruction, etc. to destroy what The Lord created. Indeed, The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth has resulted in The Groaning Of Creation, and it's getting worse by the day. However, Satan and his demonic hordes are actually ''on a Divine Leash''...and can only do what The Lord allows. And, no matter what they do...just like the red light at a traffic signal, they can NOT cross The Line that Christ's Blood, shed. The Blood Of Jesus Cleanses From All Sin, and once someone truly repents, and accepts God's Free Love Gift, that Christ Alone, is the ONLY way to Heaven, that Your Righteousness Is As Filthy Rags, ''There is now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus'' (Romans 8:1). However, God's Riches At Christ's Expense (Grace) is a License To Serve, Not License To Sin. What Will You Do With Jesus Christ will determine both What Will Christ Jesus Say To You When You Stand Before The Lord.

All Those Missing From The Earth, On The Rapture Day

There will be Tragedy At Rapture, as The Rapture Will Occur So Fast, that there will be a large contingent of souls, dead and alive missing from the Earth, in the amount of time it takes to blink ones eye...or faster than it takes from light in a distant star in the night sky to enter the eye, and strike the retina. From the unborn children in the womb, from conception to birth...to the many who have gone on before, many martyred in the cruelest ways imaginable...to the children who have not yet reached the age of accountability for their soul...to those who are alive and remain, with faith in Christ Alone to save them...NOT in a church, works, etc., In Twinkling Of An Eye, The Rapture Comes. To Those Left Behind On Earth, The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, led by The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace, will bring a time of horror such as the world has never seen...starting with The Rapture Of The Church. Whether or not you join this throng of what will be ''the missing'' is whether or not you accept God's Free Love Gift before the Rapture occurs.

The Rapture Is The Pin That Will, The World's Bubble, Burst

A balloon, if it is pricked by a sharp object...or once it fills to a certain point with air, liquid, etc., it can no longer hold together, and as a result, it bursts. Conversely, The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth has filled its balloon to the point of bursting. But, the Rapture Of The Church will be the ''Divine Pin'' that causes the balloon of the staus quo to burst. A flood tide of evil will so fill the Earth, in the aftermath of the disappearance of so many people... dead and alive...including unborn babies, children below the age of accountability, and all those who repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift...that Business As Usual, Will End. The Time Of Jacob's Trouble will then ravage the Earth for 7 years, and it will end When Christ Returns To Planet Earth. The Rapture Of The Church is Closer By The Second, and In Twinkling Of An Eye, The Rapture Comes. And, once it occurs, the final Prophetic Dominoes Of Judgment will begin to fall.

Those Who Are Offended Now, One Day, Will Be Enraged

So many people are offended by The Preaching Of The Cross, they want no part of God in their lives, or despise The Most Hated Words that Jesus Christ said in John 14:6 -- ''I Am The Way, The Truth, And The Life. No Man Comes To The Father, But Through Me''; feeling that their ''religion'' will get them to Heaven. But, it's Relationship, Not Religion... basically, not WHAT you know...but WHO you know. And, for those who are offended now, they really will be enraged in anger when they individually find out that Heaven Is Not Owed To You; and because they rejected God's Free Love Gift, they will spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned... where they'll be cursing God, because all hope is gone...and themselves, because they refused The Gospel.

When A Nation Forgets God

While God Has Always Been A Gentleman, letting mankind make the choice on whether they want Him in their lives or not, there are consequences for when a nation forgets Him. And, there are also consequences for everyone who refuses to accept God's Free Love GiftThe Home Of The Damned.

Sooner, More Than Later, There

Contrary to popular belief, God Will Not Wait Forever for mankind to repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. As In The Days Of Noah, and As Lightning Comes From East To West, sooner, more than later, there, Christ Jesus will return to Earth. And, when He does, it'll be too late to fall at His Feet, and call him King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.

You Belong To Satan, If You've Not Accepted Christ

As strange as the title of this poem may sound, the simple truth is that if you've put your faith in something else to get you to Heaven...not repented of your sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, you ALREADY belong to Satan by default, and You Are Bound For Hell, and One Heartbeat Away from death. And, After Death, Belief Too Late, to change Your Eternal Destiny.

All Belivers In Hell, But For These, It Is Too Late

A companion poem to No Athiests Exist There In Hell Fire, the sad and tragic truth for all Those Now In The Flames Of Hell, is that while everyone there is a ''believer'', it is TOO LATE for them to change the fact that they will stand before Christ Alone at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, knowing that they are Destined For The Lake Of Fire. If You Wait, 'Til It's Too Late, at The Moment Of Your Death, it'll be TOO LATE to change Your Eternal Destiny.

When A Nation Tells God, He's Not Wanted Anymore

A companion poem to When A Nation Forgets God, this tells of the fate of a nation who basically ''kicks God out of their lives''. And, just as with nations, individuals who tell God the same thing, will meet the same fate, eternally, in The Home Of The Damned.

Your Trouble Has Just Begun; If In Your Sin, You Die

While many believe this life is full of trouble and pain, the content of this poem shows that what pain one experiences in this life, pales to the torment in The Home Of The Damned; where countless souls who chose to reject God's Free Love Gift, realize that Decision Not Required To Go To Hell, and that after The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, that they are Destined For The Lake Of Fire.

Christ Lived The Life That I Could Not

Since God's Standard Is Perfection, not one person who has ever lived on Earth has been able to live such a life...with the EXCEPTION of Christ Alone, the King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. Before the Foundation of The World, it was decreed by The Trinity, that Jesus Christ would leave the Glory Of Heaven, and come to Earth...be born of a virgin...and live like us in all ways (He had to eat, sleep, and yes, even answer the call of nature)...but He did all of it WITHOUT sin or guile, in thought, word, or deed. It would be the life that we were MEANT TO LIVE, until our first parents rebelled in The Garden Of Eden. That brought The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth, and The Groaning Of Creation. The Wages Of Sin for all is to be Eternal Death in The Home Of The Damned. However, for those who repent of their sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift, they are forgiven, and at The Moment Of Your Death, they have a place in The Home Of The Redeemed.

You Could Be Doing Many Things, On The Rapture Day

One day soon, it'll seem like just another day, when you could be doing many things...whether sleeping, eating, at school or work, in church, taking care of personal hygiene or others, driving or traveling, or involved with acts of sin. But, In Twinkling Of An Eye, The Rapture Comes, and Business As Usual Will End. The only ones that will vanish from the Earth, dead and alive, will be those who have repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift. Tragically, If You See The Man Of Sin, You've Been Left Behind.

The First And Second Comings

The Lord Jesus Christ came to Earth the first time to save the sinner. The Second Time He comes to Earth will be in Judgment of all who rejected Him. This poem tells of the differences between the two. However, when He returns the Second time, it will be too late to accept God's Free Love Gift.

While Christ Died For Everyone; Each One Must Decide

As the title of this poem notes...salvation is NOT automatic. While every sin ever committed has been paid for...this payment does you NO GOOD, unless you repent of your sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. Because After Death, Belief Too Late, and You'll Hate Yourself Forever if you choose to refuse God's Free Love Gift.

Sufficient And Enough

The Simplicity Of Gospel Truth, Many Do, Reject. The concept that ''God did all the Work'', According To The Scriptures, in sending His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, to Earth, to live like us in all ways, except without sin, and to die on an Old Rugged Cross, and to rise again in victory on the Third Day...paying the total cost for every sin that everyone would commit...granting Eternal Life to all those who would repent of their sin, and accept God'S Free Love Gift. Instead, the world prefers Other Gospels Preached, where you have to do a series of good works, join a certain denomination, kill those not of your faith, confess sins to a priest, etc. to earn your salvation. Yet, as the Apostle Paul, when he prayed that three times that The Lord would remove ''a thorn in the flesh'', The Lord told him that ''My Grace Is Sufficient''. And, so it is with doing The One Thing God Requires, and in answer to the question What Must I Do To Be Saved?? -- is to ''Believe On The Lord Jesus Christ''.

It Surely Is A Dreadful Thing, To Fall Into God's Hands (Hebrews 10:31)

A companion poem to It's A Fearful Thing To Fall Into The Lord's Hands (Hebrews 10:31), this second poem, using the same Scriptural verse as its basis...is meant to underscore this Biblical Truth... that if you die in your sin, refusing to repent of your sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift, you will find out the Truthfulness of the title of this poem.

You'll Go With Angels Into Heaven; Or Demons Into Hell

At The Moment Of Your Death, you'll be escorted into Eternity, by one of two entities. If you've ACCEPTED God's Free Love Gift, you'll be Borne On An Angels Wings into The Home Of The Redeemed, Heaven... to join all those who've gone on to be with The Lord. On the other hand, those who heard The Preaching Of The Cross, and REJECTED it...demonic hordes will take you into , Hell...to face Eternal Torment, Not A Joke.

Available, Not Automatic...Is Salvation's Gift

While The Blood Of Jesus Cleanses From All Sin, to have that cleansing applied to your soul, you must realize that you, as a sinner, can NOT save yourself... and that Your Sins Are A Barrier between you and God... You Are Bound For Hell...and Just One Thing Will Save Your Soul. Salvation is in Christ Alone, is by Grace Through Faith, And Not Of Works. The One Thing God Requires is for you to repent (turn from) your sin, and accept God's Free Love Gift. Heaven Is Not Owed To You, and neither is Salvation; although it is Inclusive, Yet Exclusive. It's available to all, but only those who receive it will go to The Home Of The Redeemed when they die. All others will go to The Home Of The Damned.

If Satan Showed His True Colors, All Would Run Away

The title of this poem says it all. Once the Covering Cherub, the most beautiful angel created, Lucifer rebelled with pride, and deceived one third of the angelic realm into joining him into trying to overthrow The Lord God out of Heaven. Instead, Lucifer and the fallen angels were cast out of Heaven...with his name changed to Satan...and the fallen angels changed to demons...and becoming the most hideous evil creatures ever to exist...worse than any horror and/or extreme violence movie producer could ever conceive. The hideous sight, and knowing his true motives, would turn everyone away from him. So, ''the father of lies'' appears as an ''Angel Of Light'', masking his true motives...questioning and accusing The Lord God, as well as those who have received God's Free Love Gift every chance he gets. Satan knows that Two Souls Every Second die, and tragically, the majority of these will end up REJECTING God's Free Love Gift. And, Satan And His Hordes Want You To Burn with him and his demonic hordes...all who are Destined For The Lake Of Fire, in The Home Of The Damned.

Where God Can't Be Found

A companion poem to Two Places Where The Lord Can Not Be Found, while The Lord is Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Omnipresent (all knowing, all powerful, and everywhere at once), the two places where The Lord can't be found are The Home Of The Damned, and The Eternal Lake Of Fire...the latter is where, after The Judgment Of The Great White Throne (Revelation 20:11-15), where Satan, his demonic hordes, and everyone who refused God's Free Love Gift, will spend Eternity.

To A Mind, There Reprobate...God Gave That, To Them, There

A companion poem to Given What Was Desired, the unrepentant will finally be given what they've wanted. Since they have chosen to spurn God's Free Love Gift, they now get to constantly try to fulfill their insatiable desire for evil...which they will do, until The Moment Of Their Death...at which time, they will be consigned to The Home Of The Damned, as they are Destined For The Lake Of Fire.

If God Was Fair In Judgment, There...All Would Go To Hell

No doubt at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, where all those who REJECTED God's Free Love Gift, will be...everyone will cry out that ''God Is Not Fair''. Truth be told, as the late Jack Kinsella of The Omega Letter, notes... ''Fair Is A Call In Baseball''. It is only Christ Alone did on The Cross Of Calvary, in dying for the sins of all mankind...then He rose again on the third day According To The Scriptures; and that those who have ACCEPTED God's Free Love Gift, because Your Righteousness Is As Filthy Rags (literally bloody menstrual cloths), that it is the ONLY reason why the believers are in The Home Of The Redeemed. Without that, everyone would be Destined For The Lake Of Fire.

No Salvation At The Judgment Of The Great White Throne

The most sad day in all of history will be at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne. While on that One Day, On Bended Knee, everyone will bow, and then confess that Jesus Christ Is Lord, to the Glory Of God The Father...but for these, it is now TOO LATE for salvation, and No Pardons And No Mercy will be given there...as everyone there is Destined For The Lake Of Fire.

If Not For This...

If not for the things described in this poem, everyone would appear at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, where there would be No Pardons And No Mercy, as everyone would be Destined For The Lake Of Fire. It is ONLY because of the things in this poem, that the true believers, who did The One Thing God Requires, that they can miss The Judgment Of The Great White Throne. However, they will appear at The Bema Judgment Seat Of Christ, and while everyone there will say Rewards Were There For Me To Claim, they will realize that they are The One To Blame... and the latter holds true for those who REJECTED God's Free Love Gift.

Bible Prophecies Show That They're True

The true test of a prophet in Bible Times was the accuracy of his prophecies... 100% RIGHT, 100% OF THE TIME. If a so called prophet was WRONG JUST ONCE, he would face DEATH BY STONING (with heavy boulders, that is). In The Books Of The Bible, prophecies abound in both The Old Testament, and The New Testament. And, just like all of those have been fulfilled in their entireity, prior to The Blessed Hope, everything else that has been prophecied with The Rapture And Beyond, will also be fulfulled. This includes The Time Of Jacob's Trouble, with the revealing of The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace, and the final seven years of human history before the time When Christ Returns To Planet Earth. Every Eye Shall See The Lord One Day, and on that day, it will be TOO LATE to accept God's Free Love Gift. After The Judgment of The Sheep and The Goats, where the fate of everyone alive on Earth at that time will be either Everlasting Punishment, Or Life Eternal There. While The Goats are Those Not In God's Kingdom, The Sheep, The Believing Remnant will enter a Millenium Of Peace. For With A Rod Of Iron, Christ Will Rule the nations of the Earth, and the Earth will be restored to its former glory, before our first parents, Adam and Eve, disobeyed God, and brought The Curse Of Sin On Planet Earth. This will truly be Heaven On Earth...but alas, at the end of the Millenium Of Peace, Satan and his demonic hordes, along with ''a number as numerous as the sand of the sea'', will try to kick The Lord off His Throne. At that point, ''fire will come down from God out of Heaven, to devour them''...as Planet Earth will undergo its final judgment, which was First By Water, Then By Fire. Then, will come The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, where all the unsaved from all time will appear before The Lord, then sentenced to eternal torment, as they are Destined For The Lake Of Fire. Then, a New Heaven, a New Earth, and a New Jerusalem, will appear, which will be The Home Of The Redeemed forever, as Sin Won't Rise A Second Time.

A Special Friend

Through life, we meet many people who are our friends...and some become special friends...and they may even become our spouse. But, the ultimate Special Friend is A Friend For Life, The Lord Jesus Christ. He is waiting for you to repent of your sin, and to accept Him as your Lord and Saviour...and you can do that by accepting God's Free Love Gift, and making today The Most Important Day of your life.

It's Too Late For You To Pray, Once You Enter Hell

At The Moment Of Your Death, you will go to one of two places... Heaven Or Hell. Heaven, The Home Of The Redeemed, for those who repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift... or Hell, The Home Of The Damned, for those who rejected it. And, unlike on Earth, any prayers in Hell are POWERLESS...they have no effect... because once you enter Hell, your Eternal Doom is sealed. And, at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, you'll find that Jesus Christ will be The Worst Nightmare There Faced.

The World Does Not Want Jesus Christ

Sad to say, but true. Throughout history, the majority of mankind has wanted nothing to do with God, or His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ. Except for The Believing Remnant, it seems that everyone else would prefer to spurn The Grace of God on Salvations Roman Road, and instead, spend Eternity in The Home Of The Damned. One day, they will be Given What Was Desired, at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne (Revelation 20:11-15), as they all will be Destined For The Lake Of Fire.

Your Will, Be Done

These four words, will determine where you spend Eternity. Either it will be you, saying this to God before you die...doing The Will Of The Lord, in that He is ''not willing that any should perish (die in their sin), but that all should come to repentance''. Or, it will be at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne... where The Lord tells you that ''Since you chose to reject Me in your life on Earth, Your Decision Will Be Honored in Eternity.''

Those Now In The Pit Of Hell Wish They Could See The Cross Again

In this life, The Preaching Of The Cross, was foolishness to so many people. Now, in The Home Of The Damned, they know the truth of the warning that Those Who Are Offended Now, One Day, Will Be Enraged. They are angry at Satan and his demon hordes (among others) for lying to them...and angry with themselves that they made the wrong Choices...both in their life on Earth, and where they would spend Eternity. In this life, they refused to believe that Just One Thing Will Save Your Soul, and that Just One Sin Will Send Your Soul To Hell. Now, those who wanted The Freedom Of Religion, were Given What Was Desired. And, they tragically now realize that they're in a place Where God Can't Be Found.

The Self Righteous On The Earth, Are Headed Straight For Hell

You've no doubt seen them...people with a ''Holier Than Thou'' attitude about themselves, like the Pharisee in Jesus' day. But, Your Righteousness As Filthy Rags (Isaiah 64:6), and if You've Broken One Of God's Laws, Friend; You've Broken Every One (James 2:10). Just like the Pharisee who boasted about ''how he was not like the others'', he never considered the question What Good Is Your Pride Going To Do You In Hell??. And, without the Righteousness Of Christ in your life, by your repenting of your sin, and accepting God's Free Love Gift...upon The Moment Of Your Death, instead of spending Eternity in Heaven, The Home Of The Redeemed...you'll be instead in The Home Of The Damned.

Three Strikes, And You're Out

In baseball, the thing the pitcher wants, and the batter hates, is the Umpire's call of ''three strikes, and you're out''. However, life is like a vapour, and it's not a game...because the same can be applied from a spiritual standpoint. This is especially true to the United States Of America...with 3 strikes against the nation. Strike One was When A Nation Tells God, He's Not Wanted Anymore, and America did that when the Supreme Court sided with an athiest, distorting The Freedom Of Religion, wanting ''Freedom From Religion'' instead... and the downhill slide began. America was apparently to proud to accept what would happen When A Nation Forgets God, and they forgot both that Children Are A Heritage, and ignored the fact that The Lord Has No Pleasure In The Death Of Those Who Die, when they legalized the murder of countless unborn children...which, along with numerous acts of sin making The Cup Of Man's Iniquity Is Filled to overflowing... as strike two. Strike Three will be when nations forsake Israel, and are Touching The Apple Of God's Eye). While Israel Shall Stand Alone One Day, before the nation realizes that Christ Alone is their Messiah, all nations that mistreated Israel, will feel The Judgment of God. But, both as nations and individuals, unless one repents of sin with a contrite heart, and accepts God's Free Love Gift, they will find out at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne, that There Will Be No Appeal There, when The Lord tells them ''three strikes, and you're out''.

The Lost Look For Men Of God Who Lied, And Damned Their Soul

From a sermon I heard years ago, the setting was a nightmare that this individual had experienced. The scene was an unregenerate, lost soul, who had joined Those Now In The Flames Of Hell. He was moving through the flames, reaching into the fire, and pulling out one of the others now in The Home Of The Damned, then shoving that soul back under the torturing flames. He repeatedly did this a myriad of times...and when someone asked him what he was doing, he replied ''I'm looking for the preacher who lied to me''. Sadly, so many of these so called ''Men Of God'' are nothing more than ''wolves in sheeps clothing''...and they will hear the most terrifying words from The Lord Himself at The Judgment Of The Great White Throne (Revelation 20:11-15)... ''Depart From Me, Into The Everlasting Fire...For You, I've Never Known.

Satan Has Been On A Leash; God Will Pull It In
Many think that Satan has had ''free reign'', with sin, death, destruction, etc. ever since he rebelled in Heaven, deceiving one third of the angelic realm to join him in rebellion against God. But, Satan is a created being, with LIMITED POWER...yet Jesus Christ Is God Almighty, With Unlimited Power. In short, Satan can only do what The Lord allows...in effect, he is on a ''Divine Leash''..and one day, The Lord will pull it in, ending Satan's reign of evil. But, while Satan is still moving about Like A Roaring Lion, seeking who he may devour, those who have not yet repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, are fair game for the Devil's evil deeds.

The Righteous Souls, Are There Removed; Then, The Judgment Falls
The Lord God has always had The Believing Remnant...a group of souls that, despite the iniquity of others around them, remain faithful to Him and His Word. As Abraham asked The Lord, before He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, ''Shall Not The Judge Of All The Earth Do Right??'' (Genesis 18:25), The Lord faithfully removes the Righteous BEFORE executing His Divine Judgment, and slaying all the wicked souls. This was seen with The Worldwide Flood (where Noah, his wife, their 3 sons, their wives...and 2 of every kind of animal on the Ark were the only ones who survived)...and with Lot and his 2 daughters being removed before Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by Divine Fire (Lot's wife disobeyed the command not to look back, and was turned into ''a pillar of salt''). It will happen again with the Rapture Of The Church...and again at the end of the Millenium Of Peace, Christ's 1000 year Rule on Earth, after The Coming Of Christ to Earth a Second, and Final Time. Those who have truly repented of their sin, and accepted God's Free Love Gift, will be part of those removed from Earth...the rest will likely be destroyed in Divine Judgment.

To These, It Is, Doomsday
To the majority of mankind, they want to believe The Doom Of Satan's Lie, in that like the Saducees of Jesus' Day, there is no life after death, no accountability, no judgment, no Heaven or Hell, and that they won't have to bow before, or submit to anyone. The thought that there IS life after death, an accountability, a judgment, and that they will have to bow before someone...to the unrepentant souls, it is DOOMSDAY. At The Moment Of Your Death, Eternal Torment, Not A Joke, will be the fate of all those who REJECTED God's Free Love Gift.

The Days Of Noah And Sodom Are Here
As In The Days Of Noah, as well as ''Sodom And Gomorrah''...people are doing what is right in their own eyes, along with a dearth of wickedness, evil, rebellion, and grievious sins toward The Lord. Jesus Christ noted that it would be like these times, when He, God In The Flesh, would intervene in the affairs of mankind. As with First By Water, Then By Fire; with the Flood of Noah, and the Fire Judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah; Soon All Of Earth Will Feel Sodom's Fate, in the judgments of Seals, Bowls, And Trumpets (Revelation 6:1-16:21), then The Coming Of Christ, followed by Millenium Of Peace, Judgment by Divine Fire, then The Judgment Of The Great White Throne (Revelation 20:11-15).

God's Offer Of Pardon Expires At Death

God's Free Love Gift is Inclusive, Yet Exclusive, in that while it is available to all who ask for it, it EXPIRES upon The Moment Of Your Death. And, depending on what you did with God's Free Love Gift while you were alive on Earth, determines Your Eternal Destiny.


The Laws Of God, They Supercede, All The Laws Of Man

A companion to The Lord, He Made The Rules, no matter how many laws that mankind makes, no matter what the topic, God's Laws will ALWAYS SUPERCEDE them, whether mankind likes it or not. And if You've Broken One Of God's Laws, Friend; You've Broken Every One) of them. God's Standard Is Perfection, and NO ONE CAN PAY. Unless you repent of your sin, and receive God's Free Love Gift, you will NEVER make it to Heaven.

Once The Church Is Raptured There, The Unsaved Will Rejoice

The true believers on Jesus Christ, are thought of by the unrepentant souls of the world as ''conservative Christian, Bible Thumping, Pre-Tribulation Rapture, Intolerant, Jesus Freaks''. So, when these, thought by the unregenerate souls as ''their opposition'' are gone in ''the twinkling of an eye'' at The Rapture Of The Church, they will rejoice...thinking that they won't be bothered by them again. In reality, since His Truth Refused, God Sends Delusion, so they will be allowed to believe a lie with all their hearts. Yet, in the final seven years before The Coming Of Christ, there will be 21 Divine Judgments of Seals, Bowls, And Trumpets, that will, along with all the wars, practically destroy the planet, and nearly destroy all human life.

The Church Is Not A Building, And It Can't Your Soul, Save

Many think that the church is just a building, or that it can save your soul, or that you have to be part of this church, and do all its doctrinal requirements, in order to get to Heaven. However, the actual TRUE CHURCH is The Bride Of Christ...all those individuals, Jew and Gentile, who have repented of their sins, and have accepted God's Free Love Gift, by doing The One Thing God Requires...in ''Believing On The One He Has Sent''.

The Most Important Day

The most important day in ones life, is not the day of their birth, their engagement, their marriage, or their death. The most important day is when they repented of their sin, and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. If you have not yet had this most important day in your life, you need to do so before The Moment Of Your Death...as Your Eternal Destiny depends on it.

The Lord, He Did It Just For You

Even though millions have accepted God's Free Love Gift throughout the years, even if you alone were the only person in eternity...Going To The Cross, The Lord, He still would have done it just for you.

The Lord Did All He Could To Save Your Soul

As the title says, The Lord did all He could to save your soul...by leaving Heaven's Glory, and coming to Earth, to be born of a Virgin...to walk on the Earth like us in all ways...except without sin. As He was Perfect, without sin...He was not subject to death. But, He allowed Himself to be ''beaten to a pulp'', and crucified on an Old Rugged Cross in our place...to die, and have His Precious Blood pay for every sin that would ever be done, by everyone who would ever walk the Earth...with the victory achieved three days later with His Resurrection. The thing is... YOU HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY to make a decision on whether or not you will accept God's Free Love Gift. If you do nothing...thereby refusing to accept Him... you AUTOMATICALLY REJECT Him...and it is a choice you that will regret for all Eternity.

Don't Let The Lord's Death For You Be In Vain

If you choose to reject God's Free Love Gift, then The Lord's Death for your salvation will have been in vain for you. The Lord Has No Pleasure In The Death Of Those Who Die without Him...but where you will spend Eternity...in Heaven Or Hell...is a choice that you alone must make. While Hell Was Meant For Satan and his demonic hordes...if you do nothing, in regards to a decision for Christ...upon The Moment Of Your Death, you'll join them in The Home Of The Damned.

If You're Offended By These Words

God's Word tells us that The Preaching Of The Cross is to them that perish... foolishness...but to the saved, it's the Power Of God. For those who are offended by the words on this page, and in the poems of my Gospel Poetry Collection... The Lord, He Made The Rules...NOT ME...and if you reject God's Free Love Gift, you will regret it for all Eternity...in The Home Of The Damned.

The Sinners Prayer

In this life, the most important prayer one can pray...and the most important decision one can make...is to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, by praying The Sinners Prayer. If you truly ''mean business with God''...with a repentant heart, and a contrite spirit, when you pray that prayer...you can rest on the Authority of God's Holy Word, that you will have Eternal Life in Heaven when you die. However, if you're just Going Through The Motions when you pray...instead of Jesus Christ being your Best Friend at The Moment Of Your Death, He'll be the Most Terrifying Person you'll ever face.

The Lord, He Made The Rules

The Lord Jesus Christ, Second Person in the Holy Trinity, Created the Universe...and made the ''Rules'' for life. Just like sports games, or with traffic laws...if you break the rules, you are going to have to pay the consequences. So, If You're Offended By These Words, don't take your anger out on me...as I did not originate these ''prohibitions'''. It was The Lord Jesus Christ Himself who ''laid down the law'' at Creation. However, if you get angry with God, I guarantee you that you won't get far. For if you ''push God too far'', you will regret it Eternally.

Christ Alone

While part of The Holy Trinity, Jesus Christ Alone, God's Only Begotten Son...Created the universe...left Heaven's Glory to be born of a Virgin in a manger...lived like us on Earth, but without sin...died on an Old Rugged Cross, rose from the dead on The Third Day, according to the Scriptures...is coming again to rule and reign over Earth...will judge the life of everyone who has ever lived...is the ONLY way to Heaven, and is who I'm trusting for my life...both now, and at either The Moment Of My Death, or the Rapture Of The Church. I pray that if you don't know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, that through this poetry collection that God has graciously given me...you too, will see, that Christ Alone can be the Best Friend you've ever had...or He'll be The Worst Nightmare There Faced.

For Me, To Live Is Christ, To Die Is Gain

Based on Phillippians 1:21, no matter what I may achieve while on Earth, it pales in comparison to what I'll receive at either The Moment Of My Death, or at the Rapture Of The Church. Even in this corruptible, sinful, flesh...it's a joy for me to serve Christ now...as I'll gain a new, incorruptible body one day...and I'll have blessings far greater than I ever could gain here on Earth. This Gospel Poetry Collection...done for the Glory Of God...is designed as a ministry to those who have received God's Free Love Gift...and a witness to those who have not. If even one person is brought to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ from this poetry, it will make Heaven much more joyous for me...but, I trust His Holy Spirit to prick the heart of those who read this collection. However, just to be in Heaven with my Elder Brother, The Lord Jesus Christ...who made it all possible...will be joy enough. I pray that if you haven't yet received God's Free Love Gift, that you'll do so before The Moment Of Your Death.

A Hug, A Handshake, And A Cry

When I meet The Lord Jesus Christ face to face...either at The Moment Of My Death, or at The Rapture Of The Church, I am going to want a hug...a handshake...and a cry. I can NOT understand why He left the Glory Of Heaven, to come to Earth to be born of a Virgin, to live and walk among mankind in all ways, except without sin, and to die in my place on an Old Rugged Cross...obtaining the victory over sin and death on the Third Day according to the Scriptures. As I have greeted people on Earth, while I have done a handshake...and maybe a hug...especially with the greeting done with square dancing...I usually don't cry...although I did with The Inner Beauty of the virtuous woman that The Lord gave me in the person of my late wife. However, when I meet the One who made it all possible for me to go to Heaven, I'm going to want to get a hug, and a handshake from The Lord...and a good cry before Him...as I am so unworthy in His Presence. I'm sure that many of those who have accepted God's Free Love Gift will want to do likewise. Will you be part of this joyous occasion and group as well??

Will This Be Your Final Altar Call??

At Least One Chance Is Given There to everyone who has been born on Earth... the one chance in their life to hear the Gospel. However, the amount of chances a person gets to repent of their sin, and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, varies from person to person. Only God Himself knows whether you have ONLY ONE, or MANY chances to make that eternal decision. The first...or next ''altar call'' that you hear...might well be your LAST!! Tomorrow Is Promised To No One...and, you could literally DROP DEAD WITHOUT WARNING...with NO TIME to ask Christ to save you. Once the threshhold of Eternity is crossed at The Moment Of Your Death, it is TOO LATE for Your Eternal Destiny to be changed.

The End

These two words signal the conclusion, the finality of the topic in discussion. While I hope and pray that this will NOT be the end of my poetry collection...the fact of the matter is that either at The Moment Of My Death...or at the Rapture Of The Church, there will be no more poetry written, or posted. In fact, shortly after the Rapture, this entire collection may be removed by The Counterfeit Prince Of Peace. The writing of this poetry is a talent that God graciously gave to me (along with many others)...and I'm using this as a witness to the lost, and a ministry to the saved. As noted so many times in these poems, once you've read one or more of these...and if you haven't already accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, THE END of your chance to make that eternal decision will come at The Moment Of Your Death. Tomorrow Is Promised To No One...please don't make the eternal mistake of failing to make that decision, which determines where you will spend Eternity. It'll either be in Heaven with the Redeemed, praising God...or cursing during your never ending torment in the Lake Of Fire...the choice is YOURS.

Secular Poetry


I also wrote other poems on three of my hobbies (ham radio (also called amateur radio), Computer Bulletin Board Systems, and Square Dancing), as well as on the 1963 Volkswagen that belonged to my late father, and did some ''public service announcements'' (PSA's). These include:

Lordy, Lordy, Look Who's 40, A Tribute To J.D. Kerr, and A Tribute To Bill Wilder

The first one was written for the 40th anniversary of the Arkansas State Square Dance Federation in 1990. I took up square dancing as a hobby in 1985, and danced regularly until 2002. After a 5 year hiatus, I took it up again in 2007, after the tragic, untimely death of my wife. The second poem was done in tribute to a former caller, J.D. ''Pappy'' Kerr... who did a lot for central Arkansas square dancing over the years, until his health forced him to retire in the 1980's. His wife, Billie, passed away several years ago in a nursing home...and sadly, J.D. met the same fate a few years later. Lastly, the third poem was written for long tim caller ''Wild Bill'' Wilder. He greatly scaled back calling, due to health issues in late 2013...and tragically, his wife, Barbara, passed away just months before he did.

A Tribute To The Nets, and A Tribute To Volunteer Examiners, Forty Years Of Handi-Hams, Hammin' In The Park,
I'm So Thankful For A Hobby, That's So Versatile And Fun, Ode To HamTestOnline, Ode To PCARS, The Pride Of Being A Ham, and Twas Hours Before Hamfest.

I became an amateur radio operator in August, 1991...getting in under the No-Code Technician license, with the callsign N5VLZ on Aug. 7, 1991. After the FCC dropped the Morse Code requirement for any U.S, amateur radio license in February, 2007...and after my wife died in April 2007; I signed up with HamTestOnline on July 15, 2007...to study and upgrade...first to General on July 29,2007...then to Amateur Extra, on Aug. 11, 2007...and became a Volunteer Examiner to give amateur radio license exams. As of June 5, 2009, I received the vanity callsign AE5WX, and as of Dec. 27, 2012...I received the vanity callsign of WX1DER. I've done much work in central Arkansas with Ham Radio, and continue to do so with Echolink, Packet Radio, D-Star. The poems give an overview of the hobby...a tribute of thanks to the people at HamTestOnline...a tribute to the people at both the Portage County Amateur Radio Service Club in Ohio...and Handi-Hams (established in 1967...they help people with disabilities to study for, and obtain amateur radio licenses)...a tribute to the group of the Volunteer Examiners, who give back to the hobby, by giving amateur radio license examinations (I personally serve as a VE Team Liasion in central Arkansas, with the ARRL/VEC group)...a tribute to the amateur radio communications nets... which handle both emergency and routine traffic, along with discussions on a wide variety of topics. I am also webmaster for the Cabot Nightflyers, a late evening net in the Central Arkansas area. I am also Net Control for several nets...a poem composed for Hammin' In The Park ...a mini-Field Day setup...similar to the Field Day event...but this is on a smaller scale. Several area ham radio operators gather at an area park a few times a year, setup their stations and antennas, and operate. They use generators, batteries, UPS units, etc., as commercial power is NOT used during the exercise...since in a disaster, commercial power would likely NOT be available. In a disaster, Amateur Radio operators can ''still get through''...even if the internet, power, phone lines, cellphone towers, or other modes of communication fail. And, there is so much to do in the hobby...65 things that one can do in amateur radio, courtesy of CQ Magazine, is located here. Lastly, the big thing of ham radio is hamfests... whether a small local one day event, all the way up to Dayton Hamvention. And, whether big or small, the poem Twas The Night Before Hamfest, accurately describes things before, during, and after the event.

The Sysop Of A BBS

Long before the internet, there were hobbyists who created the Comptuer Bulletin Board System, or BBS for short. The name, bulletin board, was originally a place for posting messages. In time, areas where one could download files, play various doorgames, and even chat with the System Operator (Sysop), or other users in real time. Originally, these were ''dial-up'', but most have now gone to either ''telnet'' or ''web'' based...where one can use a telnet client such as MTel Telnet Client (OS/2, and Windows 95 through XP), or PuTTY Telnet Client (Windows Vista and above), or even with their web browser. Some BBS's charge a fee for access, but most are run as a hobby by the Sysop (System Operator)...who basically shares the resources of his computer with others, out of the goodness of their heart.

My Little Volkswagen

My late father was a member of a group of fellow Volkswagen owners at one time, and I wrote this poem about his car, one he had since 1963. It was sold shortly after his death in Feb. 2007 to the Central Arkansas Volks Folks Group.

Public Service Annoucements

I wrote two Public Service Announcements (PSAs) for Radio and Television. One was for Good News America, God Loves You, on a local Christian Radio Station, when I was at Geyer Springs First Baptist Church (where I was saved in 1978). It also includes PSAs on Water Safety Classes, done by the American Red Cross...as well as a PSA and a poem called ''No One Asks The Engineer'', dealing with safety at railroad crossings...proving the folly of trying to beat a train to the railroad crossing...also done by Operation Lifesaver, and I Brake For Trains.

Tribute Poetry


There are several ''tribute poems'' to individuals who have meant a lot to me in my life over the years...including:

Sing To The Lord A New Song

This poem was done for Donna Gosser, Worship Arts Minister, at Second Baptist Church, Little Rock, Arkansas (my one time church home), for her 40th birthday.

The Inner Beauty

The Good Lord brought me a virtuous woman in the person of Janice Elaine Harvey, back in 1986. We were friends for over 17 years, and had never thought of marriage, let alone to each other. We hit it off in 2002, and were married on May 18, 2003. This poem was a tribute to ''the inner beauty'' that she had. Tragically, a heart attack claimed her life on April 27, 2007...and the poem, and this website are lovingly dedicated to her memory. We were just 3 weeks shy of our 4th wedding anniversary, when God called her home to Heaven. However, I know that either through death or rapture, I'll see her again.

Upon Remembrance Of You, I Thank My God

Based on Phillippians 1:3, this poem was done for Gearl and Cindy Spicer, on their 5th anniversary of service at Geyer Springs First Baptist Church, Little Rock, Arkansas...the church where I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour in 1978.

Thank You

Written for Paul Sanders, now retired pastor of Geyer Springs First Baptist Church from 1967-2002, thanking him for the work done for the Lord in his many years of service to Him there.

My Hall Of Fame

Done in the same poetic sonnet style of Springtime, this poem was written in honor of my parents, J.D. and Betty Stout. My father went on to be with the Lord in February, 2007, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.

A Buddy And A Friend

Done in the same poetic sonnet style of Springtime, this poem was written in memory of Charles ''Buddy'' Martin...who my Mom and I met at several Clive Cussler Collectors Society Conventions over the years. Doctor Cussler is an adventure writer, with a worldwide following, on the New York Times Best Seller Lists, having authored a large number of books...including The Dirk Pitt Adventures, The Oregon Files, and The NUMA Files, among others. Buddy was such a joy to be around...he always had a smile, and a laugh for everyone he met. His courage, in spite of all his adversities in life, was truly an inspiration to all who knew him. He passed away all too soon in recent days...but his memory will live on forever, in the hearts of those who knew him.

I Choose To Fly Southwest

Normally when I travel, I prefer to go by Amtrak Passenger Train. Unfortunately, sometimes scheduling, etc. doesn't make that mode feasible. While I am not a fan of flying, I choose to take Southwest Airlines when I fly. They have the lowest fares, and their crew makes flying fun.

The Tale Of The Weatherman

I've had several ''weather experiences'' over the years, including being a 2 time lightning strike survivor (indirect, but I still got the shock)...being under 2 tornadic funnel clouds...being within a mile of an F-1 and an F-4 rain wrapped tornado...and in swirling floodwaters. That inwardly touched off a fascination and desire for weather. Even though I'm not a meteorologist, ''I know enough to be dangerous'', as a ''weather geek''. I can read much of the meteorological shorthand, and have some idea of reading the forecast model graphics, but I'm not in a position to ''make a forecast''. Along this line, people think that being a TV Weatherman is a ''cushy job''... but, they really don't know what goes on behind the scenes. This poem, written for fellow ham radio operator Bobby Best, WX4ALA, tells of what forecasters, meteorologists, etc. go through to prepare a forecast every day.
