The True Gospel

Post  WARRIOR on Thu 30 Dec 2010, 3:32 pm

Be not deceived
To live and act like the world
Do not chase after success
Or riches and prosperity
Rather deny yourself everything
To cling to the cross of redemption ~

Do not demand your rights
Your privileges, your promises
Rather die to self
Picking up your cross
Yes, your cross to be nailed to
For the follower is not greater
Than the teacher, and in
All their ways are to follow their master ~

Do not stand up for equality
For human rights
Nor oppose governments
Or leaders of tyranny ~

I did not send Barabbas
The hearts of evil men did.
Know that I am sovereign
I use evil for good
I use evil to punish sin
I use evil to cleanse unrighteousness ~

Do not fall into the trap
That your life is here on earth
I never sent my children
In the name of Patriotism
To hate, fight and kill
All those who don't think as they do ~

My ways are not your ways
Do not resist evil
Do not fight men nor governments
I sent Jesus as your example ~

Do not be deceived by thinking
You follow Jesus Christ
When you live opposite his life
For his was one of sacrifice
He loved people without changing them
He asked they surrender to
The Father's love, mercy, grace
So the miracle could change them ~

Stop and read the scriptures
And see, the mirror of your soul
Are you living the true gospel?
Who rules the throne of your heart?
When people see you
Do they see Jesus in you?
Or do they see Barabbas?

~ There is no time to put off today
What there is not guaranteed of tomorrow
Be not deceived -
Live the true gospel
For it is very narrow, and few find it.

Proverbs 16:4; Jeremiah 17:5; 2 Corinthians 12:10;
Matthew 24:9; Isaiah 45:7; 2 Corinthians 10:4;
John 18:36; Luke 17:20-21]

Excerpts from God's Word /
[My ways are not your ways; all they that take the
sword shall perish with the sword; love your enemies;
Resist not him that is evil; I send you forth as sheep in
the midst of wolves; bless them that persecute you;
Bless, and curse not; render to no man evil for evil;
avenge not yourselves; If thine enemy hunger, feed him;
If he thirst, give him drink; overcome evil with good}

His grace is sufficient

Romans 12:21 (New King James Version)

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
