"Twas The Night Before Jesus Came"

'Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house Not a creature was praying, not one in the house. Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care In hopes that Jesus would not come there. The children were dressing to crawl into bed. Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap. When out of the East there arose such a clatter. I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash! When what to my wondering eyes should appear But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here. With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY! The light of His face made me cover my head It was Jesus! returning just like He had said. And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth, I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself. In the Book of Life which He held in His hand Was written the name of every saved man. He spoke not a word as He searched for my name; When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame. The people whose names had been written with love He gathered to take to His Father above. With those who were ready He rose without a sound. While all the rest were left standing around. I fell to my knees, but it was too late; I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate. I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight; Oh, if only I had been ready tonight. In the words of this poem the meaning is clear; The coming of Jesus is drawing near. There's only one life and when comes the last call We'll find that the Bible was true after all!

Another Great Post From Bro. John...

I Love The Lord
Psalm 116
 
The Psalmist has reason as he declared, "I love the Lord because". There are many becauses the Psalmist gives!
One reason is the Lord listened to his prayers! God knows the voice of his children (aren't you glad he knows your voice) and "inclines His ear" and "therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live". He is always there to hear your cries, He is a Mighty God and Father!
Another reason, in the time of trouble "I found trouble and sorrow" you don't have to look far! But the Lord is always near!
"The Lord preserveth the simple". It's not complicated, believe on the Lord Jesus, trust in the Lord with all your strength, cast all your cares on the Lord! Yes, I love the Lord!
Because "the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee" that we may "return unto thy rest". God is good, and His mercy endureth forever! Yes, I love the Lord because! Because He first loved me!
The 116th Psalm goes on and on why we love the Lord! Do you love Him? Then today let us show it!
Let your light shine!
