ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

Nightmare On Near The End Street
 
It began on a  such a sweet note
With the sniffing of a flower…
How could a thing of beauty
 Spew a scent to overpower
 
A man of strength and statue?
Just how could a flower bed
Suddenly become a trap
 Seizing body parts and head?
 
T
The flower bed became a beast
Out of the Book of Revelation!
He must have missed the Rapture
And stepped into the Tribulation!

 
Encircled by the wired trap
With half his body in the ground
He could feel the sting of scorpions
As this wired hand held him down

 
His breathing became labored
As he thrashed to free himself!
Dear God why had he not spent time
With that Bible on his shelf?!
 

What were those verses he had read
Seemed so many moons ago?
How was this nightmare going to end?
He was desperate now to know!

 
The darkness seemed so heavy
There was not a shaft of light!
He could feel the evil presences
As his heart pounded in fright!

 
“O, sweet Jesus, please forgive me!”
He screamed out his heart’s desire.
“Give me one more chance to serve you.”
His words snapped every single wire!
 
Dripping wet with perspiration
He awakened with a start!
It had been a nightmare, after all!
Such relief flooded his heart!

 
But…could this be a warning?
What did those scriptures say?
He grabbed the Bible from the shelf
Then bowed his head to pray..

Revelation 1:19, "Write, therefore, what you have seen,
 what is now and what will take place later
 
Matthew 24:21  “For then there will be great tribulation,
                   such as has not been from the beginning
              of the world until now, no, and never will be. “
