Have you often ever wondered what this life is all about?
Are you looking for a purpose without wonder without doubt?
Well take a look around you and you’ll soon begin to see,
A world that’s filled with many people full of pain and misery.
But now we have the word which is known as God’s own Son
And He’s come to shine His light and to brighten everyone.
The express image of His person and the glory of His power
He has come to light the darkness in this drab and gloomy hour.
As He steps into the spotlight let your voice begin to sing,
For love is the fulfillment that He has joyfully come to bring,
For as we love our Savior with all our heart, mind and soul,
Then to love our neighbor will quite soon become our goal.
Father fill us full of life with the bread from up above,
May we be full of compassion and filled with His great love.
Please conform us to His image so we can plainly see,
That we are not like the image of the selfish Pharisee.
We loose the world from sin and the power of its sway,
Ushering in the beginning of a grand and glorious day.
Soon the love of the world in its lust will pass away,
But the love of our great Savior well it is here to stay.
The tree of good and evil is where you ruled as boss,
But you soon were defeated at the tree of the cross.
You act as if this world that it belongs to you,
But Christ says well devil I believe your work is through.
No longer are we listening to what the serpent has to say,
But now it is the Lord whom we have chosen to obey.
We claim this world for Him the One who died and rose again,
So that He could deliver it from the bondages of sin.
John 1:29,b—“Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! Rev. 19:13:-He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called the WORD of GOD. John 1:1—In the BEGINNING was the WORD and the WORD was WITH GOD and the WORD was GOD. (4) In Him was LIFE, and the LIFE was THE LIGHT of men. (5) and the LIGHT SHINES in the DARKNESS and the DARKNESS did NOT comprehend it. Amos 5:18—Woe to you who DESIRE the DAY OF THE LORD! For what good is the day of the Lord to you? It will be DARKNESS and NOT LIGHT. (20) Is not the day of the Lord DARKNESS and NOT LIGHT? Is it not very DARK with NO BRIGHTNESS IN IT?
Joel 3:14--MULTITUDES, MULTITUDES in the VALLEY of DECISION! For the DAY OF THE LORD is near in the VALLEY OF DECISION. (15) The sun and moon will grow DARK, and the stars will diminish their BRIGHTNESS. (16) The Lord also will roar from ZION, and utter HIS VOICE from JERUSALEM; the HEAVENS and EARTH will SHAKE;
(Heb.12:25—See that you DO NOT REFUSE HIM WHO SPEAKS. For if they DID NOT ESCAPE who REFUSED HIM who SPOKE ON EARTH, much more shall WE NOT ESCAPE if we TURN AWAY from HIM WHO SPEAKS FROM HEAVEN, (26) whose VOICE then SHOOK the EARTH; but NOW He has promised, saying, Yet ONCE MORE I SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH but ALSO HEAVEN. (27) Now this, YET ONCE MORE indicates the REMOVAL of those THINGS that are being SHAKEN, as of the things that are made, that the THINGS which CANNOT BE SHAKEN may REMAIN. (28) Therefore, since we ARE RECEIVING A KINGDOM which CANNOT BE SHAKEN, let us have GRACE, by which we may SERVE GOD ACCEPTABLY with REVERENCE and godly FEAR.
Hag.2:6—For thus says the Lord of hosts: Once more I WILL SHAKE HEAVEN and EARTH, the SEA, and DRY LAND; (7) And I will SHAKE ALL NATIONS, and they shall COME to THE DESIRE of ALL NATIONS, and I will fill this TEMPLE with GLORY, says the Lord of hosts.
Pro.13:12—HOPE deferred makes the HEART SICK, but when the DESIRE comes, IT IS A TREE OF LIFE. John 6:63—It is THE SPIRIT who gives LIFE; the FLESH PROFITS NOTHING. THE WORDS that I SPEAK to you are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.
John 3:34—For He whom God has SENT speaks THE WORDS OF GOD, (John 6:28—Then they said to Him, “WHAT SHALL WE DO, that WE MAY WORK THE WORKS of GOD? (29) Jesus answered and said to them, “THIS is the WORK OF GOD that you BELIEVE in HIM whom HE SENT.) Returning to 3:34--for God does not give THE SPIRIT by measure. (35) The FATHER LOVES THE SON, and has GIVEN ALL THINGS INTO HIS HAND. Ps.2:8—ASK of ME and I will GIVE You the NATIONS for Your INHERITANCE and the ends of the earth for Your POSSESSION.
(John 4:23—But the hour is coming and NOW is, when THE TRUE WORSHIPERS will WORSHIP the Father in SPIRIT and TRUTH, for the Father is SEEKING SUCH TO WORSHIP HIM. (24) God is SPIRIT, and those who WORSHIP HIM must WORSHIP IN SPIRIT and TRUTH.
Ps.22:27—ALL THE ENDS OF THE WORLD SHALL REMEMBER and TURN TO THE LORD, and ALL THE FAMILIES of the NATIONS shall WORSHIP before You. (28) For THE KINGDOM IS THE LORD’S and HE RULES OVER THE NATIONS.
