Jesus Is The Only Truth That Matters

Jesus is the only Truth that matters.
He's the only Truth that can withstand the test.
In His presence all my arguments are shattered.
In His presence is the only place of rest.

I will seek Him and know Him.
I will walk in all His ways yielding to His grace.
I will seek Him and know Him.
Pressing on to know the Lord . . . until I see Him face to face.

The intelligence of men just doesn't matter.
As they analyze, their thoughts are sadly vain.
All their reasoning is so much empty chatter,
When the Lord's the only Truth that will remain.

I will seek Him and know Him.
I will walk in all His ways yielding to His grace.
I will seek Him and know Him.
Pressing on to know the Lord . . . until I see Him face to face.

Reasoned dogma cannot test the True Foundation.
Jesus is the Truth and Doctrine I embrace.
All the ramblings of my interpretation,
I will disregard and I will seek His face.

I will seek Him and know Him.
I will walk in all His ways yielding to His grace.
I will seek Him and know Him.
Pressing on to know the Lord . . . until I see Him face to face.

Pressing on to know the Lord . . . until I see Him face to face.

Lies

Political correctness is now thrust before your eyes.
You see how folks have taken truth and mixed it up with lies.
And in this way have made the right seem like it is not right,
And made the evil seem like good and darkness seem like light.

A lie has got a purpose and is used by the unwise,
Promoting ways that do not work has been the role of lies.
Creating mass confusion with conclusions lies can draw,
And seek to use coercion, to enforce their lies in law.

Some don't want to know Jesus and His great forgiving way.
Some like to walk where it is night and do not like the day.
And some will try to tell you that you should not speak of Him.
Some try to make you fit their mold and make your light grow dim.

And now you have to pay to have your kids all brainwashed too.
You send your kids to schools that teach them things that are not true.
And if you teach creation and the flood, some shake with fits,
Who knowingly are ignorant, like prior hypocrites.

The evolutionists all know the lies that they have told.
They know that they have fooled themselves with snake oil they have sold.
They know that God created all, but yet they're truly sly.
To them, God is unthinkable; they think they have to lie.

They say that fossils show the rocks to be so very old,
The rocks then date the fossils as these "scientists" have told.
This reasoning is circular, but evolution's tale,
This tale that cannot be true, is still told without fail.

And they deny the mighty flood, though evidence is there.
That God would judge the evil is a thought that they can't bear.
And so they just ignore it and do all they can to keep
The truth from being published. As they sow, they soon will reap.

And now they say that they made life . . . right in the lab they claim.
Now there's a lie so big that they should hang their heads in shame.
But yet they still proclaim it, even teach it in the schools.
You can't believe they'd teach this, much less put it in the news.

Yes, these and many other lies they tell you every day.
For there is just one thing they want; to simply have their way.
You wonder that they feel no guilt, but guilt does not apply.
They do not see a law that says it's wrong for them to tell a lie.

And every so-called evidence that's used to prove these lies,
Has been exposed to be a clever ruse these folks devise.
And media and schools controlled by evolutionists.
All try to make you disbelieve Almighty God exists.

The media, the public schools, the newspapers all blitz
You with this constant rhetoric with great pizzazz and glitz,
And yet there is no evidence; in truth, there cannot be.
For science that is true reveals that God made you and me.

The fact that Jesus came to earth and died and rose again,
Is verified historically beyond all known events,
And never was an error found in Scripture's hallowed page,
But some poor folks say otherwise. Why do the heathen rage?

All so-called evidences used today to prove these lies,
Are non-existent and when challenged quickly vaporize.
And yet the perpetrators still continue to insist.
They'd just feel better if Almighty God did not exist.

If God were not almighty, the Creator of all things,
And everything were relative, then humans would be kings.
And every person, then, a little god who need not serve
The God above, nor live in love, nor get what they deserve.

And so this lie is told, which leads to other lies as well,
Like racism, or P. C. bunk, or saying, "There's no hell."
The lies they tell you day by day are hidden in the news,
Concealed as entertainment to relax and to amuse.

For human nature is so weak and self-will is so strong,
And flesh has been pre-programmed to keep doing what is wrong,
But God gave a redeemer, Jesus Christ, His own dear Son,
That you may be born by His blood to serve the Holy One.

Now that you've read this poem I just wonder what you'll do.
I wonder if you know Him and the peace He has for you.
I wonder if you'll enter in to wash your sins away.
I wonder if you'll take the gift He offers you today.

Oh Israel, Israel

Oh Israel, Israel, your leaders cause you to err.
Oh Israel, Israel, your teachers cause you to err.
For power and money and pride,
They plunder the people of God.
Come out from among them, O ye My people,
That ye be not partakers of their sin.

Pure Thought Is Based On Logic, So The Story Goes

Pure thought is based on logic, so the story goes.
We swallow this line easily, as everybody knows.
But reasoning and logic, fall short to tell what's true.
And scholars argue constantly all mired in a goo
Of logical assumptions--they all sit in their stew,
As they have done for ages. This is nothing new.

Their books and papers, proven false by that which they can see,
But, proud and haughty, they deny that it can ever be.
Scientist or theologian--they are all the same.
Facts based on assumptions, all stirring in their brains.
A brain so proud, it says to God, "Who are You to tell."
And gives us quite a clue to just how Satan fell.

The more they learn, the more they know, the more confused they are,
For when they learn what isn't true, they're stuck in pitch-black tar.
They look into the Bible, but they don't see the Word.
A veil is there before their eyes. They see what they had heard.
Is God able to reveal? Can His Spirit show--
If we're willing now to yield--things that we must know?

As God reveals, won't He know to show us all the same?
Won't He show us in the way the Bible does proclaim?
For God does send, the Bible says, and tells us how He sends.
He chooses whom He will to send. On that we can depend.
If there is great discord and all this argument,
It simply means that someone runs whom God has never sent.

The Church Is Filled With Hypocrites

Have you ever heard anyone say that they won't come to church because of all those hypocrites that are there. Well, there may be hypocrites in the church, and every Christian must pray that God will give us of His nature, but the most foul and deceitful hypocrites are not in the church. The days of political correctness are upon us, bringing a dishonest self-righteousness to those who want nothing to do with God or His laws. One major part of what God has asked us to do is to put away the pointing of the finger. This little poem is written for the finger pointers of the world.

The church is filled with hypocrites, with hypocrites galore,
But not to be compared with hypocrites outside it's door.
If hypocrites have kept you out of church, I must implore:
Come in and join us now for we can always use one more.

They Had Thought The Proof Would Come

They had thought the proof would come,
That they could prove there was no God,
And that they need not serve the One.
The mighty One Who loves them so.
They thought that they need not obey,
That they could forge out their own way,
That they could do what they desired.
Yes, This had been the hope of some.
To prove, somehow, there was no God.
To prove, somehow, there was no God.

They had thought they would do well,
With axioms, they could do well;
These axioms, which they could tell,
These stories, just assumptions, lies,
If they could add in any lies,
That, then, they could adjust the facts,
And prove, somehow, there was no God.
And prove, somehow, there was no God.

And so they cast about to find,
A story that might come to mind.
An axiom that they might dream,
A lie to help them work their scheme,
They would assume no God exists,
And that no spirits could exist.
Nor any thing of spiritual.
They would assume material
Is all there is. And natural,
Is all that moves the physical.
And prove, somehow, there was no God.
And prove, somehow, there was no God.

Instead, they found that what they saw,
Has proved that there are certain laws.
And observation told them why
False logic left them high and dry.
They found there was no set of lies,
No set of lies that could deny
The God, creation, and the flood.
The God, creation, and the flood.

Eventually, there came a day
No set of lies could show a way.
Could force the facts to all line up,
The facts they knew could not line up
With all the theories that they love,
With all the theories that they love.

Now God has shown them all to be
Sad liars speaking foolishly.
They thought that they would help their cause,
But now, have shown their theory's flaws.
They proved that God had made it all,
That He, from nothing, made it all.
These are the facts they choose to hate.
These are the facts they choose to hate.

Observing that, which now exists,
There is so much that now exists
That gives us clues to view the past,
And, so, we now can know at last,
The geologic column shows
The flood and how God judges those
Who won't obey and walk in sin,
And there, in rock, God's fingerprint.
And many other things we see,
And many other things we see.
These are the facts they hate to know.
These are the facts they hate to know.

And it is plain that it would be
Impossible that what we see,
All things could not have made themselves.
Could not have ever made themselves.
By much research, they now can know:
The dream they loved, should really go.
The dream of evolution's claim,
This dream could never, now, explain,
It violates what we have seen.
It violates what we have seen.

In former years, some have been fooled.
In ignorance, they had been fooled.
But, now, the facts expose the lie,
A theory that was just a lie,
And in the light of day it's seen
To be a foolish, silly dream.
These are the things they choose to hate.
These are the things they choose to hate.

And also, we have seen and know,
And all experiments have shown,
That even the most simple life,
The small, self-reproducing life,
Is far past what we comprehend.
And so it is the time to end
This theory we cannot defend.
These are the things they choose to hate.
These are the things they choose to hate.

It made them mad. It made them wild.
They proved a baby is a child,
A pure sweet baby, when conceived.
And not what they had first believed.
The money made on killing them
Was worth the shame of what they'd done.
Hard businessmen won't bear the cost
When billions, billions might be lost.
They sure must buy a law or four,
Keep money flowing through the door.
But, now, the facts are plainly seen.
But, now, the facts are plainly seen.

So, what is the reaction since?
Have they now turned or been convinced?
Or have they changed their minds at all?
Or are we talking to a wall.
They know, but willingly ignore,
And ignorance is at the core.
Ignoring facts, they stumble on.
These willingly are ignorant.
Though, now, the facts are plainly seen.
Though, now, the facts are plainly seen.

God will not force Himself on you,
He's always there. He's there for you,
But, when rejected, never will
Force His great love on anyone.
Those who have chosen, now, to be,
In ignorance, most willingly,
And who have chosen not to see,
Nor glorify the King of kings,
He has allowed their fate to be
Controlled by their own evil minds.
For every person's carnal mind,
Does wickedness, deceitfully,
Beyond the point that we can know.
Beyond the point that we can know.

So many have now lifted up,
This carnal mind, this dirty cup.
But it is carnal. It will die.
It keeps us captive to a lie.
Though many will its worth now praise,
It has no power, cannot save,
And, by illusions, does enslave.
And, by illusions, does enslave.

The human mind is fully filled
With all unrighteousness and sin.
And God turns those who will not yield,
Receive His love and come to Him,
He turns them over to themselves.
These are the ones who have rebelled,
And sought their own in everything,
Are then, enslaved to their own minds,
And they, full of unrighteousness,
Involve themselves in carnal sins,
And wickedness, and coveting.
Maliciousness, and envying,
And murder, and debate, deceit.
So when they try to do the right
They cannot help but to destroy
The very ones they try to help.
The very ones they try to help.

They whisper lies and then accuse.
They talk behind the back of those.
These are the ones who hate their God,
And openly rebel in sin.
They mock His laws and, so, mock Him,
And openly speak evil things,
Of Him Who gave His life for them,
They act in spite, as boasters, proud.
Their parents, they do not obey.
Inventors of such evil things.
Inventors of such evil things.


When they have drifted far away,
Away from God, Who is the source,
Of all the wisdom that exists,
When they have drifted, thus, away,
They never will have wisdom then.
They will not come to understand,
For understanding comes one way.
Obeying God, this is the way.
Obeying God, this is the way.

They break their promises and cheat,
And though they speak and sing of love,
They do not mean the selfless love,
But only mean immoral acts.
And when compassion is their theme,
they walk instead in envying,
And selfishness, and malice reigns.
They say they love the poor so much,
That they are willing now to take,
To take some other person's wealth,
and send it over to the poor.
They're careful in their so-called love,
And take great pains just to make sure,
It never touches what they own,
Unless they can promote themselves,
For these are the unmerciful.
For these are the unmerciful.

All who refuse to honor God,
Who do know about His law,
But who have chosen to ignore,
To willingly be ignorant,
They know that God does judge the wrong.
When any nation has been blessed,
But turns away from serving God,
Then God will judge that nation more
Than those who never knew the Lord.
And yet, God's hand is outstretched still,
He holds out hope until the end.
He holds out hope until the end.

The leading of the Holy One,
If we will but submit ourselves,
If we will let His mighty power
Direct the way and take control,
Then He will change us and transform.
His love is awesome and it's power
Will show us if we yield to Him.
He loves us so. He loves us so.
He loves us so. He loves us so.
