How can anyone picture?
Godís kingdom or know its texture
Whereof, its citizens have their fixture?
Through parables answers come as gesture

Like a pearl thatís precious
Like leaven in spreading gospel is ferocious
Like a child in its acts so hilarious
Like mustard seed becoming a tree so boisterous

Godís kingdom has a vision
To execute it has a mission
Good news is preached in unison
Souls enter after sin remission

In summary nothing is better
Rejoice with fellowmen as go-getters
Doing good in this life span
Thatís the gift of God to man

Not just hearing Godís word
But holding it as sword
In Godís kingdom one must stand
Who desires to join Christís band

Son of God is Christ
Son of man is Christ
God as man is Christ
Seek His kingdom first

Everywhere blessings do rain
With continuous Ďholyí refrain
No pain even death is gain
No stain, no efforts in vain

Not eating and drinking
But being peaceful and rejoicing
Not suffering or being glum
But joy dances as you hum

I heard about trees that sing
Glory of King of kings
Concerts of angels makes you sing
Whilst good news they do bring

Time is fulfilled take your stand
For the kingdom of God is at hand
Repent and believe the Gospel
For that alone darkness would dispel

Impact to understand of the above message
John the Baptist you must envisage
Preaching in a wilderness passage
Honey and locust being his meal dosage

Herodias wanted to put an end
To behead John, therefore she did send
Her daughter to Herod on a queer errand
With act completed, she thought, ďIíve put an endĒ

Godís kingdom receives great care
To put an end, would anyone dare?
Johnís baton Christ held upon his martyrdom
With same words explained Godís kingdom

Homosexuals, sodomites, thieves, fornicators
Adulterers, enviers, murderers
Revilers, covetous, idolaters
Drunkards, extortioners Ė the list never alters

Beware! Do not be deceived
Above unrighteous people never inherited
The kingdom of God that is coveted
For they have not repented.

Someone was stopped at the gateway
Before entering the Kingís highway
Long runs the grand pathway
Records qualified his walk that way

An experience called Ďborn-againí
Is essential for anyone to gain
Entry into His kingdom a wonderland
I surmise thereís golden sand

Conditions apply one cannot sway
Meet Godís standard come what may
Youíll progress with power each day
In this tent until thou doth stay

Tax-collectors and harlots
Got privileged entry as a special lot
When God their mistake did spot
They repented being pricked at heart

Can you of any man perceive?
Who approached Christ but did not receive
Expected miracles in his life to conceive
Unfortunately Ďeternal lifeí to him did deceive

Does your eye cause you to sin?
Pluck and fling it into a bin
To enter His kingdom flee from sin
Else, into hell fire will be thrown

Through needleís eye, a camel can travel
For a rich young man, this seemed a marvel
To enter Godís kingdom he felt impossible
He believed money made many things possible

Riches, can become a stumbling block
In Godís criteria examining clock
Beware! Never yield to others mock
Trust not in riches kept under a lock

Christ is the eternal Rock
We are His beloved flock
Like Peter deny not even before a cock
But with God walk and talk

Christ is the only way
Sinners He never casts away
But their sins He washes away
In Godís kingdom makes them stay

In you, a lovely mud pot
God has put a fire thatís hot
Choice is yours to keep it kindled
Through you Godís kingdom is reflected

Are you for kingdom of God waiting?
Itís there! Why are you waiting?
Take courage face Pilate and endorse
Like Joseph of Arimathea show others the cross

Jesus was but greatly displeased
ďLet them come to MeĒ He remarked
ďDo not forbid little childrenĒ He declared
Theirs is the kingdom of God. He concluded.

Receive His kingdom like a little child
Not by being wicked or wild
To gain entry always be mild
Plead, ďLord! Make me Your childĒ

ĎHere I see no visible kingdom!í
Such voices are heard seldom
Those having treasures of wisdom
Cry, ďItís within thatís ChristendomĒ

If someone made your day today
Food becomes secondary that day
If in Godís presence one does stay
His glory manifests even through clay.

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