 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I am speaking the truth in Christ,

Not lying what I testify;

The reason He was sacrificed,

No one is able to deny.


It is through the Holy Spirit,

That I have an intense sorrow;

Anguishing within my merit,

Looking for hope for tomorrow.


I could nearly wish to be cursed,

Be cut off from the Redeemer;

For those who do hunger and thirst,

Since I am called a blasphemer.


Messiah is for my brothers,

The benefit of flesh and blood;

The sacrifice many others,

That bought them with the crimson flood.


To them belong the adoption,

The glory and the covenants;

For the Law is not an option,

Rather the utmost importance.


The ancestors are theirs from them,

Physical descent of Christ;

From the Father not to condemn,

Rather for us to be enticed.


But the Word of God has not failed,

Not all the descendants are Jew;

Because the Father has prevailed,

For the disciples still pursue.


Because your offspring will be traced,

Not as physical descendants;

Instead it shall become erased,

To become holy dependents.


Not children of physical kin,

But adopted through the assured;

Children that were born out of sin,

Blessings and forgiveness has poured.


When a promise had been received,

Though the children have yet been born;

A promised gift to be conceived,

God elected them to sojourn.


Anything as done good or bad,

The purpose of God that will stand;

Regardless as happy or sad,

We must honor of each command.
