A Bigot

I know I am a bigot
That's what I want to be
And I will be a bigot
Throughout eternity.

The reason I'm a bigot
And dogmatic too
Is because I will not change
From my point of view.

My point of view is this
From it I cannot sway
Only YESHUA leads to God
There is no other way.

Yeshua said so Himself
I know it does cause strife
But I have claimed His promise
'I am the way, the truth, the life.'

So, I may seem a bigot
Because I'll always say
No man can come to God
Without Yeshua as the way.

Now in my dogmatism
I can be very brave
For I know that Yeshua
Is no longer in the grave.

Now, this does make a difference
'cause in the Christ I'm free
I no longer listen to
This world's philosophy.

Of course I'll be dogmatic
With this point of view
And I may seem a bigot
But I love God, do you?

Upon second thought however
Now, please do not faint
I'm not really a bigot
Just a plain old saint.

John 14: 6

A Child's Death

God the Lord has taken
Though He has given too;
For in your times of sorrow
God shows His love for you.
God's love will bring you joy
God's joy will never cease
'cause when you know the love of God
You then know inward peace.
These words I speak to you dear friends
To quieten all your fears;
For by God's Spirit your sorrow I share
I've prayed for you with tears.

And as I prayed God's Spirit groaned
Within my troubled breast,
God told me it was 'by His love
that he would give you rest.'
Your sorrow will be turned to joy
You shall find peace I know
'cause when you seek the risen Christ
His love constrains you so.
Let us praise God for His giving
And for His taking too;
For in your times of sorrow -
God makes known His love for you.

2 Samuel 12: 19-23; Luke 4: 18,19

(written for a couple whose infant died)

A Fool

I am a fool for the Christ
Far as this world's concerned
But at the Rood of Calvary
Is where true wisdom is learned.
I am a fool for the Christ
When judged by other men
But I know my judge's name
He said it is 'HO ON'
I am a fool for the Christ
You may think so too
But could I ask one question;

Just, whose fool are you?

1 Corinthians 1: 18

From the Septuagint..'EGO EIMI HO ON'......'I AM THE BEING'

A Prophet

A prophet
is the one
Through whom the Lord doth speak
To encourage the house of faith
And comfort all the weak.

A prophet
is the one
Who waits upon God in Church
A spokesman in the Lord's hands
To exhort all those that search.

A prophet
is the one
Who feels the weight of grief
From the Lord's own heart of hearts
When sheep are stolen by the thief.

A prophet
is the one
Who often stands alone
Without honour in the Church
The same as Christ has known.

A prophet
is the one
God allows to see
The needs of other people
A prophet, God made me.
