My children, I've heard some discord;
Some friction about how truly faithful I am.
Some statements like, 'We're sinners, but worthless....beyond redemption ' ;
So those with ears to hear, this message I want you to record.
Let my words ring out to those who still doubt,
From before the beginning of time my Father had a plan.
Though mankind created in His image exploded with in-dwelt sin,
The Perfect Protector, Abba Pater, always intended to provide a way out.
Your sin, yes, was un-bridled with no way for yourself to win,
Because your chosen father at the time was Satan, the deceiving one.
We so wanted you to return...for this we wanted you to yearn;
But this would occur only by My propitiatory way:
By the sacrificial shed blood of the Son.
Though the divinely-inspired Gospel is available to you,
Many still have far more confidence in human thought.
I say to you: Blessed are the believers with ears to hear,
Because they know that humanistic 'truths' are untrue.
Please consult the words of my Father.
The Word is not just from God - it IS God.
Yes, you are sinners worthy of damnation,
But my mission of redemption was not deception;
Because 'worthless' - you are not.
I've risen - I live to grant man a gift,
To forgive all sins completely, once and for all who ask.
Born of the Spirit, my Father grants you eternal life in the Kingdom,
And in His glory you all will bask.
For those who still doubt please believe me...and let these words ring forth as a sign.
Though after hearing my words, if you still question your redemptive worth,
I echo my immutable proclamation: ........
....I didn't change my mind.
