 Please read "The Last Verse"...

Devotional: The news is printed and in an hour or two, versions of what this all means sprout up under the label of prophecy. As though the simple reactionary scribing of words…entwined with personal interpretation….must be “urgently heeded”. May I state it this way? I am well aware of the End Times and the troubles spoken of in HIS word. As stated earlier, how can I be any more prepared if my soul is at peace now….knowing HE is in control. Why must I read something other than scripture to be prepared or debate for hours with those whose spirits are energized by circular discussion of details that – without question – none can prove? If I preach to the church of coming destruction, am I not losing time to speak it to those needing it most…who may never have heard of it? The Lost…who sit in bars or sports arenas or any other place aside from Church? What gain is there is lengthy arguments on deeper points which bear no relevance on a person’s eternal destiny? [u][i][b]Speaking as always most to self,[/b][/i][/u]may we be so careful to review the topics of the hour and prioritize the message of the Good News far above the relentless pursuit of knowledge and the equally relentless spewing of opinion.
Amen and amen.

[u][i][b][color=CC0000]The Final Verse [/color][/b][/i][/u]

Upon us the time of Complacency is
with it’s comrade in arms…Tepid Water
Half hearted indifference then washes through souls
whose bent knees do not honor the FATHER.

Yes those uncommitted now rise in this time
and with fleshly supports, claim their “rights”;
as though every prop which produced is on earth
can somehow defeat JESUS, the CHRIST!

Debating delusions then fills every hour
with attacks on those searching the Scriptures!
“Deadlines are near! Thus “preach” without referencing
- Truth! Just use dreams…and Self’s pictures!”

The moment has come where their “itching ears” scream
for subjective words from the town crier.
Hence such prophecy’s heard simply parrot the news
with opinions debased….and no higher.

Why teach they such error with bristling defenses
as though they themselves wrote HIS book?
Oh that all were aware JESUS waits not – expectant
for those HE – before time – forsook.

But thankfully CHRIST did not leave us – abandoned
with only those teaching of paths – not HIS own.
Yes, grateful am I for HIS prophets so humbled
who – with SWORD in hand – guide us HOME!

As HIS servant in your service,

Brother, I just wanted to share something from
Billy Graham:

Over and over again, I am asked the question:
"What is the world coming to?"
The Bible teaches us that this world is coming
to a crisis; and just beyond that crisis is the
judgment. But Thanks be to God, our God has never
faced a crisis! Nothing has ever taken God by
surprise. God has never come to a time of panic.
He has always followed a perfect plan. Satan has
not frustrated God's plans or hindered His cause
in the course of the ages. Our God is sovereign;
and He writes destiny and history!!

 Awesome GOD! Bless you!

Devotional: Revelation 22:18: “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:” It is ONLY HIS message, inspired infallibly and without question, that self clings to. Though taking in the messages of others who are known and proven, humble servants of CHRIST…still it is HIS WORD…and HIS WORD alone…that provides the steadfastness and enduring stance I so desperately need each day! It is the ROCK and not the sand on which I stand! It is again CHRIST’s words in the Bible above the voice of the another who – like me – IS fallible! Yes, irrefutably inspired are the Holy Scriptures…without addition nor subtraction by human kind. Amen and amen.

Irrefutably Inspired

Perhaps the gains which self sustains
are nothing worth retaining.
Perchance such dreams when self finds sleep
are useless…though remaining.
When all my hopes arise in smoke
and naught is left for coping…

Then CHRIST’s display exalts the NAME
which drives my life – ongoing!
As such, re-found is Joy’s abound
within HIS WORD – well grounded!
And thus, HIS Book – this frame – has shook
and so I bow – astounded!

As HIS servant in your service,
