One Path

I’ve traveled many roads
While living on this earth
Some led to a party
While others had not worth

It seemed I’d often end up
On a dead end in my life
I saw many ways to turn
But never could decide

But now my life is easier
The labyrinth is gone
There is now just one path
That I want to be on

It is the straight and narrow one
That leads to heaven’s gates
Are you now walking on that path
Come now and don’t be late

For Jesus Christ will soon return
To take the saved away
There’s only one path leading there
Accept His cross today

Judgment Day

The heavens shall be open
A white horse shall appear
The man who sits upon him
Brings both judgment and war

His eyes are like a fire
His head bore many crowns
Clothed in garments dipped in blood
The Word of God He’s called

The armies of all heaven
Will follow Him this day
White horses will they ride upon
White garments will array

The fowls of the earth are called
To feast upon all flesh
And all who do remain on earth
Will meet a forecast death

If you are not familiar
With the words I’ve written here
Revelation nineteen ten
Is where you start to read

I do not share to frighten to
Because not all are doomed
There is a way of being saved
From all this talk of gloom

Make Jesus Christ your Lord and King
He is the only way
To be in heaven on this day
Won’t you be saved today

Foolish Habits

This world has lots of pleasures
They are wonderful to try
They make us feel important
Or they give us such a high
In this life we will face many
Of the tempters little ploys
They are all meant to enchant you
Into thinking flesh is Lord

But I have news for you my friend
The day is coming soon
When the King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Will come as a bridegroom
He is looking for a church
That is gleaming white as snow
There is just one way to get there
That is Jesus Christ to know

Put aside your foolish habits
The repent of all your sin
Allow the blood of Jesus
To wash you clean within
Accept His blood filled sacrifice
For He dies for you and me
Then he rose again from death
To give life eternally

Fly Away

It won’t be long

The day will come
The trumpet shall resound
And just like that
Well blink our eyes
And rise up from the ground
We’ll go to meet Him
In the air
All those who call Him Lord
Then with the angels
We’ll rejoice
With Him forevermore
Now is the time
Do not delay
To heed the harvest moon
Tell of His love
To all you meet
The Lord is coming soon
They must accept
His sacrifice
Upon the cross that day
Then when He comes
Upon the clouds
We all can fly away

What Glorious Things

If i could see the future what would my eyes perceive
I’d likely see much more than my mind could now conceive
If i could know what’s planned for all of us who do believe
What glorious things I’d witness on that day

I’d see a band of elders gathered round the throne of God
Cherubim and Seraphim would fill the sky aloft
Singing holy holy holy with their voices sounding loud
What glorious songs I’d sing with them that day

I’d see the Lamb of God who gave His life to save my soul
He’s the only one that’s worthy to open heavens scrolls
The worship choir praises Him and loud hosannas roll
What glorious things I’d hear them sing that day

I’d see the vials and the scrolls pronounce the wrath of God
I’d hear the trumpets sound aloud from angels in the clouds
I’d see the beast be lifted up and worshipped from the crowd
What glorious truth I’d know He’d do that day

I’d see Him riding a white horse His countenance so bright
He’s leading heaven’s army to a victory in the fight
I’d see the supper of the lamb prepared for birds of prey
What a glorious triumph I would see that day

I’d see the lake of fire and the beast be thrown within
I’d smell brimstone and ashes as he plunged to death from sin
I’d see the saints of God whose name the book contains
What glorious things He’d have for us that day

I’d see the new Jerusalem descending from above
I’d see the streets of gold and gates of pearl be opened up
I’d see the healing of the lands because of His great love
What glorious things await us on that day

Most of all I’d see my Savior Lamb of God is He
I’d see the one who came to earth and gave His life for me
I know these visions are the way the future’s meant to be
What glorious things He has in store that day

If you don’t know my Jesus and haven’t made Him Lord
The time is now my friend He should not be ignored
Cry out to Him for mercy he will here your cry and more
What glorious things your life will know that day

 

Magnificent

Clothed in the clouds He comes
Mighty and Merciful He comes
All power and authority in Him
All will bow their knee to Him

Riding a white horse He comes
To judge all the nations He comes
Our salvation is only in Him
Our victory was provided by Him

He is Jesus
Full of wonder
Crowned with splendor
Magnificent
He is Jesus
Eternal Savior
Light of the world
Magnificent

In radiant glory He comes
With sound of trumpet He comes
Will you be found in Him
Is all your trust in Him

The only way
The only truth
The only light
He is
The only way
The only truth
The only light
He is

He is Jesus
Full of wonder
Crowned with splendor
Magnificent
He is Jesus
Eternal Savior
Light of the world
Magnificent

Signs

The storm gathers
The thunder roars
Lightning fills the sky
The wind billows
The air is humid
Amazement fills my eyes

I can see the signs of a thunderstorm
As it travels from afar
I know enough to find shelter
To protect me from its harm

The wars are raging
The earth is groaning
The weather changes fast
The people fighting
The darkness gaining
His time has come at last

These are the signs of His coming
You can see them bright and clear
He’ll soon part the Eastern sky
And meet us in the air

One day the trump will sound
All the saved shall fly away
If you don’t know the Savior
Repent and be saved today

Sound Steady

I cannot guess the timing
For no one knows the day
The time of His arriving
Is not too far away

I pray that you are ready
To answer His great call
The trumpet will sound steady
And He will gather all

All who call Him Savior
All who call Him Lord
If you have His favor
If He your heart adores

I may be premature
By thinking you are saved
If you’re not really sure
Please get saved today!

 

In response top the daily prompt Premature

No Pretending

I look around at all the people running to and fro
I cannot help but wander where they all will go
For one day soon the clouds will part above
Jesus will return and gather those who He does love

I cannot look and see which ones will go with Him that day
I cannot determine who has followed in His ways
You see there’s only one thing that will qualify us then
Only one slight difference that no one can pretend

We must have Jesus as our Lord and Savior of our lives
We must have seen out wretchedness and asked Him to forgive
We must have turned away from things displeasing in His sight
We must now walk with Him each day and follow in His light

Will you be one to rise and meet Him on that fateful day
Will you avoid the wrath of God that’s coming anyway
If you have not decided yet and given Him your heart
Make today the day that you ask Him to be Lord
