ECSTASY

ECSTASY

(Arthur Nolen Caudle’s revision of Carolyn’s Poem.)

Oh, LORD, I hear Your Heavenly angels singing!

“All glory and praise to the great Jehovah!”

Oh, LORD I hear the bells so sweetly ringing.

Oh, praises to God before our Father’s throne!

 

There I’ll stand before my loving Saviour;

There He’ll present me to The Almighty One.

“Heavenly Father, this one belongs to Me.

This one loves You and accepts Your love and grace.

 

And then The Gracious Father will rise and say,

“Yes, Son, I see her name. There was—there was a stain,

But now it’s gone, ‘crossed out by sacrificial blood.

Lo! I see YOUR face, YOUR holiness, YOUR grace!

Let her enter into the joy of her Lord!

 

Hallelujah!  I sing with the angels now,

And others who know The LORD join in our praise.

Our voices sing a million hallelujahs!

                                                      Our hearts beat glory, glory, glory to our God!

EASTER IS IT JUST FOR FUN?

1 May

Easter can be lots of fun.

Bunnies leaving colored eggs,

Before the rising sun!

Friends and family talk and eat;

Children hardly take a seat.

Oh! Such joy to hide those eggs,

Then see who finds the most.

Laugh and play, and run our legs,

‘Til so tired, we simply coast.

Sweet dreams, my Dear, the day is done.

So glad you had a lot of fun!

Yet Easter truly means much more.

When Satan THOUGHT he’d won the war.

God created a perfect world, such beauty in the same!

All Glorified His Holy Name!

Then, sadly, His highest angel, second in command,

Said to GOD, “I’ll take first place …”; foolish demand.

GOD SAID, “YA THINK?”

 

Satan and his army then, without a single blink,

Fell to Earth, condemned by God.

Ruler? Yes, for a time on Earth,

Because of this, sin had it’s birth.

No more perfection; for Man chose pride,

God cannot with sin abide.

Yet knowing all, there was no surprise.

So God put in place His perfect plan.

Now only HE could pay the price for man.

The only price of sin is DEATH!

From Earth most humans leave – no breath.

God’s perfection includes His WRATH.

His judgment will come to all one day.

He demands His Rightful Honor, in each soul display.

His amazing Grace, Mercy, and Love,

His Son, wrapped in His Holy Spirit above,

Was born on Earth – 100% God, 100% Man.

Life as a human made it very hard.

But, because of His Mission, He stood His Guard.

Jesus never sinned; not word, nor thought, nor deed.

To pay for our sins, He had to bleed.

Giving His Life, He took Father God’s wrath,

Crucified, He opened the only path,

To return to God’s fellowship, pleasure, and LIFE.

That’s when Satan THOUGHT he’d won that war.

After all, God’s Son was dead, alive no more.

And GOD SAID, “YA THINK?!”

On the third day, Jesus won The War For All Time.

If YOU choose Christ, He paid for your crime.

 Because He paid for our crime of sin,

 His blood can us clean in God’s eyes again.

 Will we continue to sin in this life?  No doubt.

  But Eternity is what this is all about.

Will you accept God’s Perfect Gift and in Heaven dwell?

If not, sadly, you WILL “live” in the ETERNAL HELL.
