Creation and Salvation Poems, p.2Ron wayne
Don`t let your heart be troubled,
so increase your faith let it be doubled.
We will not all sleep,
because he loves us we are his sheep.
We will all be changed,
from mortal to immortality will we be arranged.
The Lord himself will come down from above,
with his power he will gather by his love.
We will meet him in the clouds,
you will be one of a miraculous crowd.
When the hour of testing arrives,
He will take you so don`t fear for your lives.
So guard your heart well,
keep your spirit in Christ and in him dwell.
Moses was a prince to a king,
but the Jews to freedom would he bring.
He struck down an Egyptian man.
it was in anger and was not his plan.
He was rejected and sent away,
to the desert and became a stray.
Soon he found a tribe to join,
he got a family and saved some coin.
Then God told him to set his people free,
go back to Egypt and with your people flee.
God forced the Pharaoh to comply,
Moses and his people said goodbye.
In the desert they did travel,
sand and hills and gritty gravel.
They were stopped by the Red Sea,
they were trapped and not yet free.
Moses raised his staff and the sea parted,
his people gasped and were fainthearted.
In the desert Moses received the Law,
his people were in awe.
Finally they made it to the Promised Land,
But Moses stayed behind by Gods command.
God spoke to Abraham,
he didn`t need a cablegram.
From Abraham a nation shall rise,
but the world this nation will despise.
Through the chosen the will come the word,
and by this will many spirits be stirred.
But the chosen will reject his Son,
then they be dispersed and be on the run.
Then God by his power and might,
will restore to the promised land which is his right.
Back in the land they were restored,
but still they rejected the Lord.
The time is near for Jacobs’s trouble,
God will act and pop their bubble.
The tribulation is drawing near,
the chosen people will have fear.
Then a remnant will repent and follow the one they rejected,
and from the Tribulation they will be collected.
And when he comes they will see his scars,
then they will wail and curse the stars
He was a tax collector by trade,
hated by his fellow Jews with a tirade.
Jesus picked him out,
even though he was a lout.
Matthew left his wealth and past life,
to join his savior and end the strife.
He realized that the pleasure of this world,
were no comparison to eternal life unfurled.
He preached the Gospel for many years,
and those that accepted shed joyful tears.
Before he left his former estate,
he threw a banquet for Jesus at his place.
The summation of this tale,
although a wealthy sinner he did hightail.
So don`t let riches suppress,
to follow Jesus and get blessed.
Luke was the Arthur that was a gentile,
he was also a scientist with a mental.
Paul called him-my beloved physician,
and he loved Jesus by his own admission
He attended to Paul and the two were a team,
together they spread the Gospel with a full head of steam.
They preached salvation in many places,
those that accepted had joyful faces.
In the end Paul was taken to heaven,
Luke was there and saw the leaven.
All the Apostles were faithful to the end,
so all that believed would live in eternity again.
A fisherman he was and his name was Simon,
Jesus changed his name to Peter since it was his timing.
He was gruff and shabbily dressed,
but through Christ he was fully blessed.
Jesus said simply follow me,
and so he did with bountiful glee.
Peter was first to claim Jesus was the Son of God,
he knew who he was and he was no fraud.
The crow signaled three denials,
it was a test a spiritual trial.
Peter witnessed the spectacular transfiguration,
he was humbled by this transliteration.
At supper Jesus gave the Great Commision,
Peter acknowledged and it became his mission.
Peter was the first to preach on the day of Pentecost,
the Holy Spirit was given to strengthen the lost.
Peter was persecuted, imprisoned, and beaten,
this only increased his commission it deepened.
In the end Peter was crucified upside down,
and he received the martyrs crown.
I often thought how it would be with no God,
life here would be such a fraud.
It is so false that life here is it,
there would be no hope what a pit.
To think we came from an accidental stew,
I think some scientists drank too much home brew.
The creation around us is too complicated,
to think we evolved from an explosion is very dilapidated.
To die and be gone is very depressing,
no more life after this is distressing.
So many think that we evolved,
then we die and just dissolve.
To be with no promise or hope,
how can nonbelievers cope.
Can you really love and care,
if your end brings despair?
I am so glad that I believe,
in Jesus Christ to him I will cleave!
An Angel told Manoahs wife,
you will have a son with great strength and strife.
He will have long hair so don`t cut,
God has a plan for him but he will strut.
He will want to marry a Philistine,
a meeting was arranged and he thought she was pristine.
So God tested him,
he sent a Lion to tear him limb from limb.
Sampson tore the beast apart,
his great strength was just the start.
The Philistines were filled with anger,
but Sampson returned their slander.
He tied 300 foxes tails then set them on fire,
this destroyed their fields so revenge did they conspire.
Delilah wanted the Philistines paid,
how did he get his strength how was it made?
Then Sampson told her and said,
I get it from the long hairs on my head.
She cut it while he lay,
then the Philistines took him away.
They took him to the arena one day,
With his strength regained all of them he did slay.
Love is a wonderful thing,
to the bearer it can joy bring.
Can love sooth your heart,
if given it is a start.
When given to others,
it’s like a love given by mothers.
When love is given to you,
it can lift you from the blue.
Jesus said love your enemy,
its hard but it is a remedy.
love the Lord God be adamant.
Will God take his love away?
fear not his love will stay.
Can love conquer an offense?
it can turn it around it will be past tense.
How can we get this love?
it will come from God above.
What makes a prophecy real,
if it happens then it has great appeal.
What are these true predictions,
Are some are merely fictions.
The word of God never fails,
his prophets give predictions with details.
The prophecies about the messiah,
was predicted and he would be a pariah.
Isaiah gave the best,
his prophecy about the messiah stood the test.
In Genesis twelve-three,
the messiahs lineage was given to see.
Jesus was born of a virgin its clearly seen.
he would come from Bethlehem its true.
Jeremiah twenty three-five,
he came from the lineage of King David and arrived.
Psalm one hundred and one you will be awed.
Jesus will sit at the right hand of God.
In Enoch’s day he was a man, who took a stand,
he followed God while others God did they ban.
Then God told Noah I want you to build,
an Ark and with animals it will I fill.
For 120 years he slaved,
and he built the Ark and the way was paved.
The flood came and covered the mountain tops,
destroyed all the sinners and their crops,
They floated for 150 days,
then rested on Mount Ararat to stay.
Then Noah built an altar,
A sacrifice for God he didn`t falter.
So God left a sign,
a rainbow that would appear oftentimes.
By the sign of the rainbow God said,
He will no flood the world so don`t dread

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. ' For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Tower of Babel and the burning Bush
The Tower of Babel Genesis 11:1-9
Now the whole earth had one language and the same words. And as people migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar.
Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another's speech.”
So the Lord dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth. And from there the Lord dispersed them over the face of all the earth.
The Burning Bush in Exodus 3
Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed. And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.” When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” And he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.
Trees are more than green,
some are thick and some are lean.
They give us life giving breath,
without them we face death.
Trees come in many sizes,
short ones tall ones and many surprises.
They`re covered with stout bark,
some are light and some are dark.
The shade will sooth a harsh sun,
keep you from getting well done.
A tree will provide many fruits,
and many a delicious tasting juice.
Trees are more than pleasing to the eye,
they point to the heavens and the sky.
Once a single tree had great significance,
it was the owner of a great magnificence.
Salvation is Choice
Salvation isn`t just a word,
it`s a decision that shouldn’t be deferred.
You need to carefully consider it,
don`t just go by your human wit.
God says there is but one choice,
accept Gods Son and rejoice.
Don`t wait for time to pass,
don`t let it be an impasse.
You`ll miss eternal life with the Father,
and be stopped from going farther.
Your life will be in pain,
you`ll have missed all gain.
I pray you`ll not hesitate,
but accept it and celebrate.
God has given you a choice,
with his written voice.
He wants you as his adopted son,
so accept it and not the gift shun.
What makes the dog so right,
you`ll be his delight.
He`ll follow you where ever you go,
on you will his attention he will bestow.
He`ll come to you at the slightest nod,
to him you will be his god.
If you are in danger,
he`ll protect you from any stranger.
He`ll lay at yo
he`ll never from you hide.
He`ll wag his tail when he sees you,
he will follow you like a newborn ewe.
