Forgive Us Our Tresspasses
The Word Rightly Divided
While our sins are all accounted for
Past, present, future, too
This doesn’t mean we don’t repent
Of the wrongs we sometimes do.
It doesn't mean we don't confess
Our sins each time we pray...
Forgiveness only comes when we
Face Calvary each day.
There is a teaching going around
That some perceive as sound...
But, The Word rightly divided,
Shows that error can be found.
It has always been...will always be
The same well proven concept...
That line is always upon line
And precept upon precept.
How we perceive or understand
Might not come all at one time.
It's here a little and there a little...
Like some gigantic mount to climb.
Only once the top is conquered
Can one see in all directions...
And only by a rigorous study
Can we see scriptural connections.
"Study to show yourselves approved"
Is God saying to each one
Don't just take another's word
Until you've figured out the sum.
It's a little like working on Math...
One line leads to the next...
Then suddenly the answer's there...
It's the same with Bible text.
It is somewhat like a puzzle...
O, but when the pieces come together!!
We know that God has spoken!
There is no doubt whatsoever!
If we're led by The Holy Spirit
And get into The Word each day
God's Book holds all the answers...
His Book shows us The WAY.

~~ Author's Note~~
Whom of us are so well versed in God's Word
that we, like the people of Isaiah's Day,
think we're far too mature in The Word
to still learn line upon line and precept
upon precept? Some men of the
cloth have called this "the sacred cow"
and say we've pulled this out of context...but
have we?? We read the Bible over and over,
do we not? What is the point if we already
know what it's all about? Simply for the reason
that we need the repetition....and that
God continues to reveal new things to us.
Yes, we're His children and must be taught as
children...some out of one verse and book
and then some out of another....precept upon
precept....until it all comes together for us.
“For precept must be upon precept,
precept upon precept; line upon line,
line upon line; here a little, and there a little:”
