Who Are You Following?

Post  WARRIOR on Thu 30 Dec 2010, 3:41 pm

Chronicles, the book of kings
When men followed a leader
of flesh and blood
no longer the Lord himself.
The Lord watches as
Judah and Israel fought each other
no longer under the cloud by day
or the pillar of fire by night
They lost the fear and awe
of the Lord God Almighty ~
Each King differed in heart
many did fall away from the Lord
Amaziah worshipped the gods of men
So God had him slain
Uzziah his son ruled 52 years
yet his wealth caused such pride
that he blasphemed the Lord
He was struck with leprosy
living a life of solitude
not even buried with the place of kings
rather that in a common cemetery ~
how the Lord does tell us
He is a jealous God
and will not have other gods before Him.
We each are a living book
we record events of our lives
Our deeds follow us
just like these men of old
We also are called to live
righteous and follow God's ways
The Holy Spirit helps us follow
after God in our hearts, not men ~
Let us not fall prey
to the pride of life causing us
to sin against the Lord Almighty.
For we are warned time and again
to guard our hearts
to let no man steal our crown
For only those who endure
to the end are saved.
I ask you, what does your life
say about you in your Chronicles?
And is your name written
In the Lamb's Book of Life?


~ 2 Chronicles 25:14, 27-28
~ 2 Chronicles 26, Matthew 24:13
~ Isaiah 61:10-11
