The Appearance of a Christian

The Appearance of a Christian (Click here for the voice of the Bible Poet)

By David Smith February 21, 2010

“For by Grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” Ephesians 2:8, 9

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who, for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Heb 12:2

He appears like a doctor with his black bag in hand

And all the equipment to get to the Promised Land;

The Word of the LORD; his compass and hope

Discipline and faith on Christ’s work to cope;

He studies God’s way, on a journey to see;

The finished work of the Cross for all eternity;

And then to the study, in, at the hall;

Stepping forward in faith; to Christ with his all;

This life is temporary, in an instant, it will fade.

To be clothed in God’s righteousness;

His way is made.

He looks like a doctor; he can only point the way;

Christ is the author and finisher of the faith;

His word does clearly say.

It’s all internal and Christ knows the heart.

He knows the motives; to only believe is our part.

The Cloven Foot and Chewing of the Cud

The Cloven Foot and Chewing of the Cud

By David Smith February 10, 2010

The Cloven Foot and Chewing of the Cud (Click for Voice of The Bible Poet)

Walk in the way of the Lord and meditate on His Word

To an unbeliever it may sound absurd.

The clean animals, a cloven foot and chew the cud

Illustrates the Christian to stay clear of crud.

The chewing of the cud means meditate long;

The Word of the LORD in Scripture and song.

The Cloven Foot is the peculiar walk

Our definite character and how we talk.

Meditate on Scripture, digest it slow.

That is our role, our daily walk, you know.

Christ is the door to perfect liberty.

The sacrifice, the substitute, the perfect one set me free.

The chewing of the cud and the definite walk

The Word of the LORD; illustrates the talk.

That is the joy; to chew the cud

And walk his way to avoid the mud.

It comes out in the sacrifices; it comes out in rhyme;

Vivid images of Christ though His Word in time.

One hundred Per cent Man and One Hundred Per cent God

One hundred Per cent Man and One hundred Per cent God

One Hundred Per Cent Man and One Hundred Percent God (Click on Red for Voice of the Bible Poet)

One hundred per cent man and one hundred per cent God

Our LORD and Saviour, His finished work we can applaud.

One hundred per cent God and one hundred percent man

A concept that is difficult for students to understand.

Put it in practice, when we live with our mate.

A hundred per cent effort for a marriage is at stake.

You cannot meet a spouse only half way there.

It’s all and nothing and everything to share.

The bride and His church, marriage is grand.

That is the pattern

On Christ’s righteousness to stand;

One hundred per cent to give to my wife;

To nourish a marriage with stability in life;

Study the pattern as the Lord is king.

Clothed in His righteousness in everything.

Salvation: No bones about it

Salvation: No bones about it

Salvation No Bones about It (Click in Red for  Voice of the Bible Poet)

He keepeth all his bones not one of them is broken

I think of the speaker, so dramatically, had spoken

He spoke of Christ, the cross, as he cried

His bones were not broken because His body had died

The two malefactors had their arms and legs broke

To ensure they were dead, the speaker had spoke

A verse in Psalm Thirty four touched my heart

Thinking of the LORD, on the Cross, did his part

Now that I’m saved, the Gospel believed

To give, and to preach since eternal life is received

Not by works we have done

For he did it all

On the cross it is finished the preacher did call

So now we’re in Christ, what needs to be done?

Salvation complete as we focus on the Son

Knowing He’s LORD and following by His way

Obedience to His word and continually pray

Once we are saved we work because of our faith

The Cross it was finished

He did it all so great

The First Five Books

The First Five Books

By David Smith February 3, 2010

The First Five Books (Click in Red, the Bible Poet Speaks)

The First Five Books have a story to tell.

Christ shinning through; the foundation to dwell.

The twelve tribes of Israel; the tabernacle and the Law;

Moses leading the people;

The Promised Land; hear the call!

From the First Five Books

To the New Testament we scan;

Christ in All the Scripture;

As we view the fall of man;

As the serpent was lifted up;

So must the Son of God;

Through His righteousness alone;

And His work we applaud;

Everything points to the Old Rugged Tree;

To save a lost soul; He was crucified for me.

Make it personal; the finished work of the Cross.

For my sinful nature; he paid the ultimate cost.

Looking at the scripture from Revelation and back;

The first five books; lays the foundation of the track.

All in all; through the scripture we read.

The Blood of Christ, the sacrifice His deed;

That is the Gospel, the Good News we are told.

A relationship with Christ for eternity to unfold.
