Love is constant as God is
Because true love comes from God.
Spread the Gospel of God’s Love
For Love denied is life lost!
A true Christian is a true Convert.
How can one deny God
Is beyond reckoning
One is so dependent
Its one’s very life one denies!
And to deny the Trinity of God
Is like denying one’s own self
The triune identity of oneself
One partakes of with one’s Maker!
Those that seek God’s will
Should first in themselves obedience instill.
The greatest of all human tragedies is hopelessness
As long as one has hope one will triumph through perseverance.
All virtues come from God
So learn them only at His feet.
Only Truth can survive in a bed of lies
Lies – they first multiply and then degenerate.
External beauty is skin deep –
It begins and ends with flawlessness.
Internal beauty is soul deep –
It begins and ends with an unblemished conscience.
(Therefore, be ye perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect.)
When we judge we forget
On ourselves we invite judgment!
(Judge as in discern is the Spiritual way and not judge as in passing/executing judgment.)
Unbeknown to many, in God’s vocabulary, words such as
Man, elder, priest, virgin, apostle, angel, prophet, servant, son etc.,
They are not gender-biased.
And unbeknown to many, in God’s wardrobe
There is only one suitable garb for all
The Robe of Righteousness
Which again is not gender-biased.
The wicked invent new ways
To multiply God’s wrath upon themselves
But the foolish, in the same old method,
By taking God’s Holy Name in vain.
People by nature seek anything but Truth:
For the sensual, the sensuous;
For the intellectual, the profound;
For the philosophical, the complexity of words;
For the religious, the supernatural;
And for the base, the human excesses.
Only they that are Spirit-led seek Truth
And are satisfied just as was promised.
Lies attract but delude
Flattery appeals but corrupts
Sin tempts but enslaves and
Death lures but destroys.
God is a Friend to all who serve Him faithfully
For He opens His heart and reveals His deepest secrets to them.
The abandoned egg of an ostrich
Does not see the saving Hand of God
Until it springs to life and
Thrives on the very sands of its neglect.
Bonding in the family
Ought to be like scaffolding
It should not only support
But also let grow.
The trusting are like little children
Who give one a glimpse of heaven.
To mar or destroy the trusting is
To mar or destroy heaven on earth.
(Matt 18:3-4 & 7)
Rejection is a prowler
Who if invades you in the safety of your home
Will find you at every turn and corner
All the way to your tomb.
There is nothing poetic or beauteous
Nothing spiritual or splendorous
In a woman contemptuous and bereft
Of all things virtuous.
It would have been easier for me
To denounce God
But for His angels in all shapes
Attending to my needs and scrapes.
One is transformed from
Believers in God to
Be ‘livers’ in God.
The greatest blasphemy is
Calling Christianity a religion.
Religion is man seeking God
Christianity is God seeking man.
What better way is man exposed
Than when he pretends to find God
And not turn to Him who Alone
May show Him the Way to His abode!
Do not desire the pinnacles of this world
Which are nothing
But sacrilegious mounts of Satan.
You’ll be on your own with the devil
Ready to fling you down.
The higher the pinnacle
The greater the fall!
There’s growth in Christianity
Though the water-mark is preset
And all aid to be had on board.
What can this world want of me?
For I boast no success story.
Mine is an epic of survival
Beset in its tragedies.
Yet I seek to leave behind
Worth its weight in gold
Refined and made pure
In the Goldsmith’s fire!
I have heard
Being poor is an Attitude
Little wonder then
Being rich has is my Fortitude.
Is the woman’s WOE.
Man is ever shadowed
By the ‘accuser’
Every thought, word and deed
In interpretations varied
To be judged and
To be accounted for!
He is a diligent pursuer
More diligent than any
Christian could be.
He’d pursue them
Even in Heaven if he could
And demand their expulsion
If it weren’t for God’s faithfulness
Made known through Christ and his angels!
One is secure
Beyond the reach of all
For this is how
He liberates one’s soul.
We will not understand True Love
Unless by His Love
Our obstinate but merry hearts of stone
Are transformed into
The obedient and grieving hearts of flesh.
The most misused words in the world
Are God and Love.
Both most Holy.
So let us beware!
For misusing the former
And the latter, a great folly.
All about me
I find people playing gods
Judging and teaching me painful lessons.
Wiping away my smiles
Overlaying my stooping back
And daring me to raise my head
While they teach me
In addition, humility!
Confront death everyday
For it is everywhere.
Be at peace with it
Lest it takes you by surprise.
Humility is not
Exalting oneself in pretenses of humble clothing
And soft and sweet mumblings.
Looking up to God and God alone.
The more one finds Him exalted,
The more one finds oneself lowly and humbled.
To be born as I am
Into a family as I have
It is a challenge
Both to survival and womanhood!
There’s no parallel or equal
No scale on which you may balance
The wickedness that stems from one’s own.
There are gods and goddesses,
Just as there is one true God.
The former are those who hold you in a sway,
God is the One who shows you The Way.
A foolish woman is a disgrace to her generation and to the generation to come!
The beast in man transforming to be the best in man.
Serving God and serving man
Are two different things.
A Christian ought not to
Confuse betwixt the two.
For only he that serves God
Truly serves man
And it is never the other way round.
If one is not firm on God’s Word
One cannot hope to be firm with the devil.
Spiritual life in this world
Borders not on wants
But on needs.
The trinity of fallen man
For those who do not understand is this
Body – the now visible self with a name
Soul – the invisible self with the blame
And spirit of life – as temporal as a game.
Man, O man, how contrary!
So in disharmony
With self as with God!
How long will you reject His Hand,
Deny yourself the perfection He has planned?
The intervention in God’s creation
In the form of Judgment
Came to be for Satan
And his band of rebelling angels.
The conclusion in God’s creation
In the form of Sabbath
Came to be for man –
The Rest of God, His redeemed and His angels.
The Christian world is what it is today
Because it has less of sheep
But more of wolves in sheep’s clothing.
The only hope for the surviving sheep
Is to get out while they can
And avoid the fate that awaits the wolves
For which they are being rounded up as one.
You are not even man
If you have rejected your God.
But merely a beast-
The two-legged and hair-crowned sod.
The hypocrisy of men is notoriously obvious
In their “pro-virginity” stand
For though it is within their power to honor it
Themselves dishonor – come marriage! come rape!
As if it is not enough to expose them
They take their pretensions one step further –
In God’s Holy Name
To punish the women
For crimes only they can commit!
All that glitters is not gold
Likewise, all ‘virtues’ not of God.
The ‘Virginity of the Soul’ is not the same as
The ‘Virginity of the Flesh’.
Neither is it gender-biased.
While the latter is destroyed by man
The stigma no more permanent than the flesh
The former is sealed by God
Its glory as permanent as the souls of men and women.
Man is so arrogant!
He will dare to equal
with the Son of God
but will not let equal
One has not begun to pronounce the infallible Gospel
If one has not begun to denounce the fallible man.
The Son is the Heir
Not because of flesh
But because of His Word.
One who does not have His Word
Does not have the ‘sonship’;
And one who does not retain His Word
Cannot hope to retain the ‘sonship’.
Come of age, did you say?
Think again and be very very certain.
For you are
What you consciously become.
Not for want of choice or knowledge
Or misguided by ill-advice or
Pushed around by your circumstance.
But having overcome your belying background
And furnished yourself with all the choices
You consciously decide and account for all your actions.
Women and Marriage
To some, marriage is
A RUDE AWAKENING
And to others, it is
A charmingly engraved tombstone.
The Gospel without the Sabbath
is like the ‘godly’ without the eternity.
The runaways of God run swift and bold
Away from strangers of stranger tongue
Away from every tightening hold
Till in Master’s Voice its rest is won.
Truth is not what one is born into
But, Truth is what one seeks
Of one’s volition and with one’s whole being
From the Only One Who is the Source of It.
Atheism is nothing but Godlessness
To lure men and women
Away from their God.
Religions are man’s VIOLATIONS of the Truth.
Every VIOLATION makes known its Religion
By characteristic manifestations unique to itself.
For, while the Way of The Truth is Invincible and One,
The ways of man are self-destructive and too many
That make known his brash Godlessness
Unleashed everywhere by his wicked dominion.
DEFINING THE SEVEN PROMINENT RELIGIOUS HILLS OF BABYLON
Hinduism: BLATANT FOOLISHNESS crowned with BRAZEN INSOLENCE!
Judaism: RELENTLESS REBELLION crowned with SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS!
Catholicism: MAN OFFICIALLY CROWNED PRINCE OF DARKNESS!
Christianity: COVERT UNFAITHFULNESS crowned with OVERT COMPLACENCY!
Islam: UNABASHED TREACHERY crowned with UNMITIGATED VIOLENCE!
Buddhism: UTTER NONSENSE crowned with UTTER PRETENSIONS!
Paganism: ATHEISM (APEISM) crowned with RITUALISM!
Truth has no religion,
It is Universal and Unchanging.
The Infallible Words
and the Irrefutable Deeds of God
Bear testament to the Indomitable Truth
Of His Invincible Existence.
The Godly are not born
They are Born Again
By God’s Holy and Eternal
Spirit, Word and Blood.
Religion is manifestation
Of rebellious legions of evil spirits in man
Seeking nothing but the UNMERITED glory and
UNHOLY service of his UNWORTHY self –
All in the holy Name of God!!!
It is one thing to claim to know God;
And quite another to be
Known by God –
The sifting Hand of God
That separates the liars
From those His very own.
