Are You Ready?

I watch the sun as it rises today
Creeping its way up the sky
Bright rays touch the clouds
The birds sing aloud
Their anthem is raised up high

Someday soon God’s Son will return to earth
To bring all His dear children home
His radiant light
Will dazzle our sight
Well bow at the foot of His throne

Be sure today that you’re ready to go
When the trumpet shall sound that day
Trust in His name
Repent and be saved
Then lift up your voice in praise.

Forever Over All

The time is coming soon
When Jesus will return
The clouds will open wide
The trumpet shall be heard

He’ll come for all the saints
Who are faithful to His word
They will meet Him in the air
Forever with our Lord

We’ll sing glory hallelujah
Holy is His name
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Holy Holy Holy
Is the King of Kings
Forever over all He shall reign

In one blink of an eye
The scene above will come
Are you ready for His call
Have you made Him number one

If you haven’t now’s the time
Bow your knee and call to Him
He is ready to forgive you
And cleanse you from your sin

We’ll sing glory hallelujah
Holy is His name
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Holy Holy Holy
Is the King of Kings
Forever over all he shall reign

The Clouds Will Part

I had a premonition
It was not intuition
It was a thought that filled my soul and mind
That sooner than we think
In time that’s just a blink
The clouds will part and startle all mankind

Jesus will come calling
For all His faithful followers
To join Him in the heaven’s up above
Have you made Him your Savior
Have you made Him Lord forever
Please ask forgiveness now
Make Him the Lord of all
Then you will join the faithful in the clouds

Catch That Flight

Running through the airport
MIddle of the night
Jump on the conveyor
Have to catch a flight

My time is a wasting
The gate has opened wide
Arriving there in time
I sit and breathe a sigh

Another flight is coming
To take us all away
Jesus will return
Are you ready for that day

The conveyor of all truth
He said to trust in Him
Ask Him for forgiveness
Make Him Lord within

Don’t be in the position
That you haven”t bowed and prayed
To make Him Lord and Savior
Before the final day

in response to the daily prompt Conveyor

There is Still Time

Sometimes it seems very slow
Sometimes it goes too fast
Sometimes we don’t want any more
Sometimes we hope it lasts

Our time is one possession
We all have just the same
No matter what you do each day
There’s none that will remain

One day soon the Lord will come
He will come in a blink
If we have not accepted Him
Our life will really stink

I pray you’ll take a little time
To think about this fact
When you really think it through
I pray you will react

I Scratch My Head

I used to collect baseball cards
Comic books and marbles
The cards and marbles we would win
The comic books were Marvels

Today if I still had my stash
Kept in mint condition
I have to say I’d have it made
It would be worth a fortune

But I had little foresight then
Into what the future told
Today I scratch my head and think
How did these others know

But there is one thing that is sure
A day is coming soon
When Jesus will return to earth
And take away His own

I am ready for that day
I’ve asked Him in my heart
Make sure you ask Him in today
So you to can depart

Sweet Smelling Savor

A movie was made a while ago
Scent of a Woman the story told
Al Pacino won the Oscar gold
A performance I truly admired

I’ll trade any day the scents from this world
For the sweet smelling savor of prayers to our Lord
Rising to meet Him in heaven adored
As an offering He will accept

So enjoy all you can this old world and it’s smells
Because one day He’ll come we know this quite well
The day and the hour no human can tell
Be ready for His soon return

Avoid the Wreck

When you get to a railroad crossing
You see signs everywhere
And often there’s a bar to keep you back
I figure you all see these signs
And take them serious
‘Cause if you don’t, you’ll wind up in a wreck

We see strange things a-brewin’
All around us anymore
The signs of the times are really clear
Jesus said He’s coming back
When these signs appear
Have you made Him your Savior and Lord

For when He returns in the clouds
A crossing will take place
For all  of those who’ve given Him their lives
Those who are left behind
The worst of times they’ll face
Will you avoid that wreck and and save your life

 

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Crossing

In a Flash

One day it’s going to happen

And it’s too far away

Jesus Christ will split the Eastern sky

And all have accepted Him

As Lord of all their lives

Will vanish as from earth they take their flight

 

Imagine all the chaos

That will happen on that day

When millions will be gone iin just a flash

If you don’t want to stay behind

Ask Jesus to come in

And you will rise with us because you asked

Are You Prepared?

This time of year is thrilling

As Christmas lights get lit

Anticipation fills the air

As Santa has his list

The children are all smiles

Awaiting the big day

It couldn’t come to fast

For they’re prepared to play

 

Much like the signs of Christmas

Are the signs of the end times

Calamity throughout the world

And loss of civil minds

The church awaits the coming day

With great anticipation

Are you prepared for Christ’s return

Do you have His salvation?

 

If not we can take care of that

Right now if you don’t mind

Just ask Jesus to forgive your sins

And make Him Lord of your life

Acknowledge that He died for you

And that he rose again

To give eternal life to you

Forever up in heaven
