"O, LORD!"

        




"Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, 
I beseech thee, deliver my soul."
(Psalm 116:4)







Anyone anywhere, all over the world, can call upon the Holy Name of the Lord, and seek His omnipotent grace.  He is nigh unto anyone who seeks Him in humility, and the sorrows of repentance, in the fall upon the face.  It only takes the mention of One Name called out in urgency, and suddenly heaven's angels gather around that soul.  As the Spirit of Jesus Christ comes to dwell in His "dust" with the tongues of fire, from lips touched with hot coals.

It's the Holy Ghost poured out from Jesus, who is risen and alive,
 as He fills us with His Spirit and power
Who can deny this move that's consuming every Nation, kindred,
 and tongue?  It's the prophecy of the last hour


Oh, Nations, come one and come all to the beckoning of Your Lord and Savior, as He woos You with His love.  He will never ever leave you, nor forsake you; He fills, enfolds, and hovers over you, so like the tender feathers of a dove.  Why should you wallow in the hollow degradation and suffering of Sin's result, when you can be forgiven, lifted up, and set free? It's joy unspeakable and full of glory when the Spirit of the Lord Jesus settles in your soul, in holy beauty.



Give it all up to the One who formed you from dust, and gave you
 breath; He waits so anxiously, with open arms
Repent of all the Sin, and come clean before the One who knows
 all; get rid of the witchcraft and evil charms


The devil will promise you pearls, but drag you in the mire, so go to the One, who lifts you to the heavens that are higher.  His ear is nigh unto all those who call; He's just a moment away from the repentant, and the desperate crier.  Guilt and shame are the low powers that drag you down, but the Holy One of Israel came to give life, and a crown.  It only takes a whisper, if that's all you can muster, and the Lord will be
there to get rid of the evil, for the showdown.
  

Ah, the splendor and freedom you will feel, when at last your heart
is clean, pure, and filled with His Spirit
It's time now to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ; this is
 salvation; the Lord wants all to hear it


The day will come when time shall be no more; judgment will fall, and the world will cry out, but it will be too late.  It's best to obey the Holy Bible, rest in the hands of the One who died to give you life, and so seal your fate.  For our God is searching to and fro throughout the whole earth, for those who will receive His love before the end comes.  It's simple, the answer to life's terror and woes rests in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word, the two columns.

They wrap us in His safety and power; it's a peace upon the
 countenance of those in Christ, who believe
It's because we heeded the whisper, and we ran to the One God
 who reigns with three little words, "call to Me"



The Ark, God's Church, is loading up before the door is shut and
 time is no more; so come on, get on board
Cry out to the Lover of your soul; He's waiting for your call; let 
 your voice reach Him with an urgent, "O, LORD!"

"Miracles Happen!"



          








The Holy One wakes me with an urgent nudge, and a
wispy whisper of my name
He beckons me to come and pray, as I feel His longing
for company; that's why He came
It's early morning, but the night skies are still lit with
only the glimmer of the moon
It matters not to the lover of my soul; He's lonely for 
His creation to sing Him a tune
So, while strains of Holy, Holy, Holy leave gentle echoes
in the silence of the night
My Lord and I share heartbeats of passion for the lost,
until the glimpse of morning light
As our communion closes, with the sweetness of His
touch upon my lovesick brow
I hear His promise of His love, His power, His healing,
that soon He will endow
For there's nothing He will withhold from me, He says,
because I've walked uprightly
Just as His Word promised; He saves, and He delivers from
sin and sickness, so unsightly
As the chilly breezes catch the filmy curtain, in waves of
blowing winds of His presence
He leaves the room softly, leaving behind the glow of 
glory, in whiffs of His essence
And, as I struggle to rise from pain's long journey of 
numbness, and lungs gasping to breathe
Suddenly the breath of life enables me, and the trial 
of years of suffering has to leave
I realize, The Lord visited me with love and strength;
He's my God and my captain
And He made sure when the sun came up to face a
new day, that I knew "Miracles Happen!"

"Vision's Incubator"





"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good
profession before many witnesses."
(I Timothy 6:12)


 Martyrs for the cause of Jesus Christ


This thing called FAITH in the LORD Jesus Christ is something worth fighting for.  Why?  Because it has eternal value; it crosses the boundaries of space and time and lands in portals of Glory.  Our Lord Jesus Christ paid the cost on the cross with His blood, His stripes, and His death, but He rose again, and passed the baton to us, His saints, His followers, to carry the torch to the end  ...  we are admonished to take up our cross and follow Him  ...  sometimes our cross, our burden, costs us everything; it's about seeing further than our face, it's about "Vision's Incubator."


The Prophet Jeremiah

The old Testament Prophet, Jeremiah, was known as the "weeping prophet."  It was thought that Jeremiah was most like our Savior, Jesus Christ, than any of the prophets of old.  He was sent to warn of coming judgment of God for the sins of the people, and he didn't mince words; he was plain spoken and got right to the point.  When dealing with people's sins, it must be without flowery persuasion and tender petting.  SIN takes people to Hell, the horrid fiery burning in torture forever; therefore, people have to know clearly and soberly the consequences of sin.  Jeremiah was plain and rough, less polite, but his weeping for the sins of the people tells us his heart.  His vision outweighed his burden  ...

Daniel, in the lions' den


Darius, King Cyrus' governor over Babylon, issued a decree that no god or man other than himself could be petitioned for thirty days.  The decree was made into law and sealed by the King; it could not be revoked, not even by the King, himself.  Daniel's practice was to pray three times a day toward Jerusalem, and he would not default his God by obeying this persecuting decree.  He continued to pray, openly and without hesitation; for this, he was thrown into the lions' den and sealed within.  Darius regretted this decree when he discovered he had been manipulated by men jealous that Daniel had been chosen as prime minister, and Darius respected Daniel's love for his God.  The end of the story is that Daniel's God came through; the lions' mouths were shut, and Daniel was found alive and well the next morning.  FAITH in action, vision of a higher purpose honored, the burden overcame the incubator  ...  the view of the unseen God was "seen."

Then King Darius wrote: To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in
all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you. I make a decree that in every dominion
of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel.  For He 
is the living God, and steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not
be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure to the end.  He delivers and rescues, 
and he works signs and wonders In heaven and on earth, who has delivered 
Daniel from the power of the lions.  So this Daniel prospered in the reign of 
Darius and in the the reign of Cyrus the Persian.





John the Baptist's head on a charger



How far do we go with this thing called FAITH?  How long do we bear the burden to see the vision fulfilled?  To what extent do we endure persecution for the cause of Jesus Christ?  How far do we carry the prayer, fasting, consecration, holiness, and endurance to reach the world for the Lord of Lords and King of Kings?  The answer?  ALL THE WAY TO THE END!
  
John the Baptist was the forerunner of the Lord Jesus Christ, preparing the way of the Lord.  He preached in the wilderness, clothed in camel's hair, and living on locusts and wild honey.  The old Testament Elijah prepared the way for Elisha, and was, in some sense, a type of John the Baptist, who prepared the way of the Messiah; and Elisha, a type of Christ.  God has a pattern of sending people before, to prepare the way of another.  That is what the Church does, the Bride of Christ, we are preparing the way for the groom, Jesus Christ, our Lord.


Herod Antipas feared John the Baptist, because of his popularity and his growing political power.  Herod took John prisoner, and apparently during his captivity, John, prophet that he was, warned Herod that he and Herodias were in an adulterous relationship.  This made Herodias furious, so she plotted to have her daughter, Salome, dance at the banquet feast before Herod.  It was customary if the dancer pleased Herod, he would grant her the wish of her choice.  Herodias induced Salome to ask for the head of John the Baptist, and she did.  John the Baptist was beheaded and his head laid on a charger. 

How far do we go in FAITH?  How long do we endure?  To what degree do we hold fast to the doctrine of the truth?  Until the sound of the trumpet! 
 
The martyrs for the gospel of Jesus Christ taught us that some things are worth the burden, worth the ridicule, worth the persecution, worth the pain, worth the cost, and it is the eternal vision, and for that, we must carry our cross, endure the hardship, because it's all about "Vision's Incubator."




"Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training.
They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do
it to get a crown that will last forever."
(I Corinthians 9:25)

"He Shall Hear!"


"And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, 
because we keep his commandments, and do those 
things that are pleasing in his sight."
(1 John 3:22)

It happens in a sudden moment in time; our prayers going up have 
 a heavenly response, from portals above
The obstacles that have hindered, and the devil's ploys to delay,
 are broken with an angelic hand, and a shove
What a moment it is when our answer arrives; we've prayed so
 long, but then the door is opened in a flash
We are left gaping in awe at the miraculous event; It's like rain
 falling in a spectacular sudden splash 
Our God is never late; we don't know why the delay, but we trust
Him, and now it seems to be right on time
It's like the precise movement of a clock, when the hour has come, 
 there's a sound of victory with a chime
We look up with thanks from a heart full of love, to the One who
 hears, and answers the cries of His beloved
He has bestowed His blessing upon us, and it flows down like a
 gentle wafting breeze, clad in a velvet glove
It's a lesson we must learn to never stop praying, and never give
 up, for we belong to Him and we know 
In all things He has our best in mind, and He will give, as we give
 all of us to all of Him, as we bow and grow
The circle is complete when Creator and creation flow in a never
 ending power, of our hands to His hands
And, it flows back and forth like the turning of an hourglass, with
 the falling of its positioned obedient sands
Trust is our bond with the One who formed this "dust;" and we can
 never underestimate His love, and His gifts
We just have to learn to move with the cloud by day and the fire by
 night, as the mind of our Maker ebbs and shifts
He leads us up the mountain, holds us in still waters, and woos us
 to His hiding place, of love in His arms 
We are forever awakened by His sweet whispers at dark, and His
 comfort rendered by His omnipotent charms
Our Lily of the Valley leaves an aroma in our midst; when our
 answer rests upon us, like a lingering mist
It's like God has touched us, and the world doesn't know this smile
 is because we've been heaven kissed
It's a tryst between us and the Lover of our souls, an eternal pact
 with the One, who is a covenant maker
He's our foundation of power, our Spirit of glory, our mighty
 strong tower, and our Holy Ghost anchor
Nothing can separate us from our Lord God; we're sealed by His
 blood, confirmed by His Spirit, and His love
It's a holy cord not easily broken; only we ourselves can sever the
 alliance; it's something the world knows not of
So, when the Lord sends Angels that bring to us, in an instant, the
 long awaited blessing, from prayer cried in His ear
We can only bow in response to the One who made a covenant with
 His own, that when we obey, "He Shall Hear!"
