  41.     

Mystery

The Rood is foolish folly
When considered by man's mind;
But I shall boast in Calvary's tree
For God's wisdom there I find.

Now God, took what was foolish
A Rood, a cold dark Tomb,
He took death and the grave
And made of them a womb.
For Christians should not fear death
Nor the corruption of the grave
Because God reversed it's purpose
In the Christ who rose to save.

And so each night I ponder
As I lay upon my bed
The greatest of all mysteries
To sleep in the Christ, be dead.
Now what I've said seems foolish
And some will say 'He's mad'

I long to fall asleep in the Christ
For the gospel's news is glad!

Colossians 2: 2,3

  42.     

Nighty Night

'Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
if I should die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take'?

Never have I heard a prayer
That's filled with so much doubt,
Read Psalm three and verse five
That's what it's all about!

So, when I lay me down to sleep
God's angels walk the floor,
I dwell in safety as I sleep
'cause I also read Psalm four.

In that Psalm these words I read,
'I laid me down and slept,
and I awoke' once more again
'the Lord sustained and kept'

Psalm 3: 5
 
Richard Merrell
   
 

   
   
 

  43.     

Oh No!

Oh no, I'm left behind
I wish that I had not been blind
To what Christian people said,
'Believe on the Messiah and be not dead.'

They are gone now to their Lord
Who came and 'caught' them in accord
With what the Bible has to say;
I disbelieved and so I stay.

YOU told me that, 'There is no God'
And explained it with a nod,
When I asked YOU, 'Is God dead? '
YOU told me, 'Yes' from your head.
'There is no God' YOU did say
'When the world is in this way'
I believed YOU and now see
What YOUR wisdom has done to me.
Yeshua has come, returned again
He 'caught up' His Christians, it is plain.
And I am left alone with YOU;
Oh, please tell me what to do.

YOU say, 'Do not believe this lie,
there is no more life after you die;
and Yeshua the Messiah is not true,
so just do what YOU tell me to.
Alright then, I will obey
What you say now sounds OK,
There is no Messiah, now or then
What was YOUR name? Oh yes, SATAN.

2 Corinthians 2: 11; Galatians 1: 8,9
 
Richard Merrell
   
 

   
   
 

  44.     

Pray in the Holy Spirit, Jude 1: 20

I praise Yeshua the Lord
For that wonderful day,
That day that His Spirit
Taught me to pray;
To pray in the spirit
By God's Scripture I've won
Believed in the truth
I can pray in a tongue.

Released by God's Spirit
From my limitations
I pray with the spirit
Make my supplications.
I pray for the saints
As the Scripture commissions
I pray with the spirit
Make my petitions.

I will pray with my spirit
I will pray with my mind;
Because I love Yeshua
This treasure I find.
To pray in the Spirit
Jude taught unto men
This came by Yeshua
So I say, AMEN.

Please see also 1 CORINTHIANS 14: 14-16
