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

Emphasis On Eternal Life
 

Man has a misconception
Of when eternal life begins.
He doesn’t seem to understand
 That he was dead in all his sins.
 
But the moment he was born again…
 The minute he accepted Christ…
 At that hallelujah spot in time
He entered eternal life.
 
This means that he will never die
Though his body will decay…
For in the twinkling of an eye
His spirit flies away.
 
He keeps waiting for eternity
To begin eternal life…
When, in all truth, it’s been bestowed
Amidst all the stress and strife.
 
He’s in the world…not of the world…
 Thus he does have to remain
Until temporal things have passed away
And Heaven’s his to gain.
 
But eternal life’s already his…
It was purchased at The Cross…
Granted by the Grace of God…
By the blood our Savior lost.
 
For man has passed from death to life
According to God’s Word. 
Why look forward to eternal life
When it already has occurred?
 
Ah-h, man, I hope you realize
What I’ve tried to make you see.
  You’re born again and eternal life
Is yours now and eternally.

~~Dedicated to Janet~~
(Janet's Planet)

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth
 my word, and believeth on him that sent me,
 hath everlasting life, and shall not come into
condemnation; but is passed from death unto life."
John 5:24, KJV

 

 "And I give unto them eternal life; and they
 shall never perish, neither shall any man
 pluck them out of my hand."
John 10:28, KJV
 
 "We know that we have passed from death
 unto life, because we love the brethren. He
 that loveth not his brother abideth in death."
1 John 3:14, KJV
