 The day is dawning

The day is dawning and will soon be upon us. The children of God have been asleep – dead to the treasures of their inheritance. As the sands of time slowly slip away, the balance of that which remains will soon be like a looking glass. Transparent to the eyes of the watching world. So many things have transpired that are nothing in the eyes of eternity. Empty promises by those that are far from the King of Glory. Foolish statements of fact without any substantiation. Empty, dead, and rotting. The stench of that which is passing away fills the nostrils of the children of iniquity. Soon the lostness of their condition will be obvious, soon they will cry out in anguish, soon the annals of time will consume them. Present, past and future is upon us – all three rolled into one, all three consipiring to burst forth into that which always was and forevermore shall be. Hold fast to the Truth. Trust in the Lord, for He is the salvation that was spoken of by the prophets. In Him, and Him alone, is the safety for which we seek. He is the island of paradise in a lost and dying world. Come and drink deeply, all ye that are weary and heavy laden, for the hour is upon us when our final resting place shall be made known.

Quote:

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto Me and rest;
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down
Thy head upon My breast.”
I came to Jesus as I was,
weary and worn and sad;
I found in Him a resting place,
and He has made me glad.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
The living water; thirsty one,
stoop down, and drink, and live.”
I came to Jesus, and I drank
of that life giving stream;
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
and now I live in Him.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s Light;
Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise,
and all thy day be bright.”
I looked to Jesus, and I found
in Him my Star, my Sun;
And in that light of life I’ll walk,
till traveling days are done.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“My Father’s house above
Has many mansions; I’ve a place
prepared for you in love.”
I trust in Jesus—in that house,
according to His word,
Redeemed by grace, my soul shall live
forever with the Lord.


[i]Horatius Bonar

 Re:

Charles Wesley wrote over 9000 hymns and sacred poems in his lifetime. His last a few days before he died was this:

In age and feebleness extreme,
Who shall a sinful worm redeem?
Jesus, my only hope Thou art,
Strength of my failing flesh and heart;
O could I catch a smile from Thee,
And drop into eternity!

Somehow this morning I missed the original post. All I saw was the poem.
