A Biblical, look, at the claims of the modern church. Art


We're, oh, so magnificent.

                                  


We, Christians today, are magnificent!
we make the devil ,dance, to our tune..
Bind him, when we please.

Cast his minions into hell,
as we live a life, of
Ease.

Yet, the planetĎs never suffered more,

 from evilís, horrid,

Disease.

 

How come the Archangel, Michael,
didnít ever, the devil, bind,
 or handily, waylaid?


When for 21 days, from helping, mankind,

  fightin with the devil, he was,
Delayed.

Or what of our brother, Job?
That faithful, man of God.
.Youíd think; if Satan could be bound,
 or cast out of a place;
that Job would have figured, it out
with all the pain, he,
 Faced.

Thatís not to mention, our dear friend Paul.
when in some prison he sat.
He never commanded the devil:
 to do this, or to do, that.
He taught us something greater,
 more in in-line with, His: Word.
That persecution makes us strong
 It teaches us, thru faith, to,
 Win.

For, itís, our victories over strife,
over struggles, and,
all the pain.

That, becomes, the very ticket,
 that, He signs:

 Let, this one: enter
In.



So, itís actually like it says in Jude,
 about the error of our time.
When egotistic, men, filled with spiritual pride.
Start to claim all sorts of things,
  that His Word, cannot affirm
Not when it was written, or, ever
 Since.

Theyíll even start to claimin, 


that the devil they can bind.
 Even, tho, God, gave him


 the earth, to rule, and
 made him,
 a,

Prince.

Now don't get me wrong, for I've often seen,
 the power in,
His name.
But if we don't disciple, them
They'll come to a
bad end.


 For, just because ,we, thru His Name, made, the unclean spirits, leave ,
does, nothing to assure,


that they won't be right back, again.
 and bring a bunch of friends.


They're never really bound, you see,

 cause He, let's them prowl,

hour after hour.
Seeking those whom they might,


 decieve and

 devour.
 
The answerís throughout the Bible,
 itís specific, and quite,


 Clear,
 Resist him, and heíll flee from us.
Live a Spirit filled life, and profess,
 His Holy Gospels,


 to the lost.

 Itís what weíre to be, doin, down,
Here.




Donít let your morals, to this world,
Decline.
Donít let your daughters,
wear, their, skirts too, short.
Donít drink too, much
Wine.


 Stand strong on His Word,

 tho theyíd stone you,
 given half a chance.
 But they can only kill your body,
 which is ,short lived, at,

Best.
 Strengthen the things, that remain,
 and let God do, the,
 
Rest.

Oh your words flow in His might...
revealings of truth
in our life and the wrongs we need right!
the devil waits with a bite!
and he will even satisy with even a nibble!

Amen to your pen!
Love and Peace~
