Warriors with No Kingdom


Spineless hoard!

So terrified of loss.

Vainly, they stand

For the opinions of another man’s religion.

Religion, a man’s way of pleasing his version of God.

In that respect

There are as many religions as people who have lived.

The spineless want peace.

Quite willingly,

They toss away the peace of God in Christ,

That they may be left alone

To pursue their religion of Man.

_____________

See how their religion

Requires hatred through defining:

“You spoke a bad word.”

“You thought a bad thought“.

“You did something vile”.

“You have transgressed our pact with one another“.

“For this, and many more, we condemn you”.

So says they who love their worthless peace.

Those who despise their brother; reveling in the demise of their neighbor.

So bright they think themselves to be.

Performing mental gymnastics;

Wielding the piercing sharpness of their wicked forked tongue.

All the while glowing with darkness in a land filled with nothing.

Indeed, go then!

Be righteous among your righteousness.

Disavow the glory of God in Christ;

You spineless worthless hoard!

The Consuming Truth


The following is a hard truth, yet only hard because that is the nature of so many hearts.

“For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.”

—2 John 2

Once let the truth of God obtain an entrance into the human heart and subdue the whole man unto itself, no power human or infernal can dislodge it. We entertain it not as a guest but as the master of the house—this is a Christian necessity, he is no Christian who doth not thus believe. (Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon)

The will of God to save is a consuming fire. That fact is not open to debate.

Consider the Robin


In the quietness before dawn, the Robin wakes to consider. Rested, healthy, feathers to preen, hunger to notice, thus a hunt to enjoy.

Following his musings (taking stock of who he is):

Publicly, loudly, shamelessly, he gives thanks to God before the hunt begins. The open window has been our seat midst the symphony.

He cannot hide his heritage. Never does he consider the miracle of flight. He is a Robin.

Can the Christian hide his heritage?

Does the Christian consider the miracle of belief?

Can the Christian desire that he were not a Christian?

Remember the Robin before he is gone for the season. He has been a faithful and radiant display of how Man should treat his own place and the God who made him.

Remember the Robin while he is gone, that faithfulness may attend your winter days. When HE returns will he find you having been faithful?

Consider, the Robin cannot be an Aardvark.

Confused?


Many religions? Yes. Many cultures, customs, languages, and rituals? Yes. But to love the people more than Christ will never please God. He has set His rule by the blood of His Holy, Righteous and Glorious Son. He is established forever in Heaven. His people establish His Majesty here as well.

What is honored by the world must find a certain distain in the souls bought by the Holy Blood of Christ.

“I myself am the LORD, and there is no other Savior. I am the one who spoke to you, saved you, and told you those things.”

— Isaiah 43:11-12 ERV

Beyond Us


We all know that it is easy to sing praise to God when the good things are in our hands. Blessed is he who sings when his hands are full of trouble. For such is a kin to Christ as he bowed to sweat blood drops in the garden.

Wealth has its own reward, but faith in The Promise of HE WHO IS exceeds the vocabulary of Man.
