1 Thou, whose almighty word
chaos and darkness heard,
and took their flight;
hear us, we humbly pray,
and where the gospel-day
sheds not its glorious ray,
let there be light.
2 Thou, who didst come to bring
on thy redeeming wing
healing and sight,
health to the sick in mind,
sight to the inly blind,
O now to all mankind
let there be light.
3 Spirit of truth and love,
life-giving, holy Dove,
speed forth thy flight;
move on the water’s face,
bearing the lamp of grace,
and in earth’s darkest place
let there be light.
4 Holy and blessèd Three,
Wisdom, Love, Might;
boundless as ocean’s tide
rolling in fullest pride,
through the earth far and wide
let there be light.
In the last months, the world appears to have gone mad. Intolerance towards other human beings and what they believe. As Followers of Jesus Christ, we do not use violence.
Our hearts should be filled with compassion for those who we believe are not on the right path. We may be indignant when it comes to unbiblical behaviors, actions and thoughts but it is not for us to be hateful in our actions or thoughts.
Abortion is a hateful practice to me, I believe all life comes from God and that no one has the right but Him to end it. I believe that there are many ways to deal with a child who wishes to be born of a mother. How many wonderful couples are there who want children.
But the woman who takes the step to end life within her, should be treated with compassion, despite or because of the action she took. Imagine the how much more likely a woman is to come into the fold of Our Lord, when wretched with remorse she feels welcome. Who shall cast the first stone?
This does not mean that I am against closing down baby death facilities, or as pro abortion parties call them, planned parenthood clinics. It is NOT up to us to plan parenthood.
Every last soul should be welcomed into the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Can you imagine what could happen, when compassion would be the watchword for lost souls, rather than judgement.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance (Psalm 33:12 KJV)
We live in a world where Our Lord God, is not sovereign over nations, rather we see the self-righteous and many that clothe religion in hate. Let us not be self-righteous, let us not condemn the abortionist or the for Jesus did not condemn the corrupt in His day.
Cruel and deceitful
Is that tempter,
Who makes us believe
That happiness may come
Through death and destruction,
May come through
He, that tempter
is alive and strong in the world.
Yet he must be shunned,
There is no true joy in:
In earthly power.
Those who kill for God,
Are not His Army.
His Army is LOVE.
His Army loves all souls
Though we rage against
The shackles by which souls are
Oppressed by the ruler of flesh.
37 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.
18 The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.
25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
28 For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34 Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
We should not be afraid of the hatred, for God will judge righteously.
