A Rose Is, But A Rose

Poem By Kenneth Davis

There is a world so unaware, of what looms beyond earth out there,
So caught up in living they can’t see, when it’s over there’s eternity.
Men are duped by the prince of the air, and so busy they don’t care.
For all of us who have believed, it’s our duty to help those deceived.
We get so busy we become unaware; of a fire missing called we care,
A fire in our hearts, deep inside, that is lit by Christ, when we abide.
And when Christ lights that fire, His compassion becomes our desire.
So we can help unbelievers to see, the Truth from God about eternity.

Truth is essential for all men to know, when choosing which way to go,
Down many roads with many bends, my friend, there are only two ends.
What may seem like a pleasant path, can lead you right to God’s Wrath,
While the one that seems not to entice, could lead you right to Paradise.
You can not follow worldly guides; you must follow a God who is Wise,
God’s Word is very frank my friend, in that every life will one day end.
It’s destined for man to once die, then face judgment from God on high,
And my friend it is a sure certainty, that every man will face an eternity.

If you trust your life to Jesus Christ, like the thief, you’ll enter Paradise.
But if you pursue a worldly desire, you will be cast into the Lake of Fire.
Without Christ you will eternally die, for our Eternal God does not lie.
But end this earthly life with Christ, and you shall receive Eternal Life.
Death is not a place of ease, as unbelievers are sent right to Hades,
This is a place of pain and torment, as you wait for Eternal Judgment.
And death my friend is truly a curse, as Hell in eternity is even worse.
So what do you have to lose, by making Life the choice you choose?

Comments about A Rose Is, But A Rose

Oh, there is no lake of fire. Haven't you heard? Or are you just trying to use scare tactics? Another question: Why do you think God has sent me to present you with challenges? Maybe he thinks you're not sufficiently devout. Maybe you're not doing enough to glorify his name.

A Heavy Heart

There’s a heaviness upon my heart, at times it seems to not depart.
But Christ who lives within my heart, will never leave me nor depart.
I need to focus more upon The Lord, for by Him I am never ignored.
I need to seek His lasting peace, a peace I known will never cease.

Not Peace But A Sword

On the scene came Christ The Lord, not with peace but with a sword.
The sword was The Word of Truth, and to many it became a reproof.
To many hearts Truth would come, to acknowledge God’s Only Son.
But many just wouldn’t believe, and The Truth they would not receive.

A Cord Of Three Strands

I have one lovely woman in my life, but we have a marriage of three.
The life long bond of our marriage is my wife, Jesus Christ, and me.

This is not simply a well known cliché, a phrase, or a simple token,

A True Blessed Hope

Christ is indeed for us my friend, our true Blessed Hope for the end,
He is our Blessed Hope my friend, in that we will see a brighter end.
This Hope is something we can’t see, that we can know is sure to be.
And this hope is for all who come, to a living faith in God’s Only Son.

Someone You Can Trust

God is Faithful and God is Just, God is someone you can trust.
When in a trial simply be still, as God works out His Perfect Will.
He is God and from the start, He’s working to prepare your heart.
When you are tried, you will see, God is molding you for Eternity.

A Tree's Fruit

Good fruit or bad fruit, a tree can only bear one,
This parable was taught by God's one and only Son.

First mentioned by John as a warning for the Pharisees to heed,
