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

Criticism of The Church

What’s this story circulating?
Ugly gossip’s reached my ear!
Church is meant to worship Jesus…
 I won’t bow to what I hear!
 
  I absolutely stand appalled
Someone dares to criticize
Or point fingers at the pulpit…
More of Satan’s drummed up lies?
 
If attendance means alliance
To simply open doors of doubt
 Take your disputes and division
And kindly make your way on out
 
The church is not in need of critics
Negativism has no grounds
I am not one for repeating
These ugly rumors making rounds
 
 They have made their way to my house
And surely aren’t welcome here.
So unfounded and unscriptural…
  Things are not as they appear.
 
Things are blown out of proportion
Doesn’t gossip work that way?
I believe some loose-lipped people
Should fall on their knees to pray. 
 
To repent and ask forgiveness
For the disrespect they’ve shown.
God says “Touch not my anointed”
He has made His message known.
 
 Inclined to shoot God’s messenger?
You’re very welcome to the shot.
But I must do what I must do
And I cannot be what I am not.
 
The church makes up a living body…
Jesus Christ is still the head.
The gates of hell will never halt her…
Because her message isn’t dead!!!
 
No, you’ll never find perfection
In any building you attend.
But if the Christ is lifted up,
Just what is your gripe, my friend?

~~Dedicated to the Church (meaning we the people)~~

 
"You should know how to behave in the
 household of God, which is the church of the living
 God, the pillar and foundation of truth."
1 Timothy 3:15
 
And I say also unto thee, that 'thou art Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my Church,
and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.'
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven.
and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth
shall be bound in heaven,

and whatever thou shalt loose on earth
shall be loosed in heaven.
Matthew 16:18-19 (King James Version)
 
 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my
 prophets no harm.
Psalm 105:15
King James Version (KJV)
