© Bob Barra, 11-22-06

The Lord forgives, the Lord receives;
By what His Son has done
There is reconciliation
For the heart that surrenders to Him;

Yet there will be spiritual outcasts;
Social lepers, within the family of God;
Those who call Jesus “Lord” will find these
A stumbling block,
Just as these outcasts are their brother
Or sister;

Because of what one has done,
Many will resist receiving them,
For the consequences that follow the rejected;
These who stumble will preach mercy,
While holding these lepers at a distance;

While these lepers are repentant
And show a changed heart,
There will still be rejection;
Forgiveness, with condition;

And the Lord will grieve;

Many will resist,
For the sake of what the world preaches;
Contrary to the Word of God;
Many will preach of the New Creation,
While they disdain the brother before them;

Children of the Lord will stiff-arm the strange,
The odd; those unlike themselves;
Those who have done what they will never do;

And the Lord will grieve;

It may be that the Lord has placed these
Who are ostracized within His family,
To test the heart of those who stumble and resist;
Many will be found to be simple tares among the wheat;
Many will stand as His children before His face,
And He will judge righteously;
Those who are His own will be thankful
For a judgment based on a lack of faith,
Rather than the abundance of sin;

Those who are not His own
Will receive eternal condemnation;
And they will grieve,
And gnash,
These who never knew Him...


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
