Shadows Reveal Christ

Shadows Reveal Christ

By David Smith May 15, 2018

 

The shadows on the floor, the silhouette to see

The desk and the chairs, vivid imagery fascinate me

The details of the chairs, the shadow is cast

The little tiny holes, how the light gets past

The shadow is not the image,

Think of what is to come

Just like the Old Testament,

Shadowing Christ, the Blessed one

 

We see the shadows, the sacrifices and all

Books of the Old Testament as God’s Word, would call

Pictures and illustrations, and then it’s fulfilled

The shadows are explained after Christ crucified on a hill

It all comes together, the prophets reveal

The words of the Old Testament, and the finished work becomes real

Look at reality, and see how the shadow is cast

Where both is revealed and how salvation does last

 

That’s the authority where God’s Word is preached

His Word becomes flesh and that’s what we teach

We see the shadows and the finished work comes in view

The reality of the Cross, the predictions are true

That is the Gospel, with its shadows and light

It is the Good News, will you be saved tonight

Believe with thine heart, Christ died for me

The finished work of the Cross at Calvary

Al’s Personal Bible

By David Smith May 3, 2018

 

Reminds me of a casket

That Bible of old

Words of the Gospel

Where stories are told

 

The physical structure with pages and ink

And bound with eternity,

Where a mortal body would sink

 

I see that Bible, the message that’s sent

Eternity,

Where the soul,

Would forever be spent

 

Think of Al’s Bible,

As he brings pages to life

The value of a soul

Will one be saved tonight?

Hope

Hope

“Even now!” there is always hope

The promises of God,

How a Believer can cope

 

David, motivated out of love and concern

The vision of hope,

Encouragement for others to learn

 

As people harp and symbols collide

Steadfast and sure

Hope, to carry God’s promises in stride

 

God of Hope and the music from the harp

The Word of God,

Eternity is the spark

 

Hanna knew the God of Hope

She left Samuel at the temple,

Her faith to cope

 

It is not wishful thinking

As the world twists fear around

It’s the steadfastness and Love

As that Blessed Hope is found

 

It’s nothing to harp at,

As Hope may be all we see

That Glorious appearing,

Christ Died for ME

Man Of Sorrows

Man of Sorrows

Inspired Breaking of Bread Service June 11, 2017

 

Creator of the world where the world knew him not

Man of Sorrows, the reputation, He got

Came from heaven surrounded by glory

The ignorance of the world tells a different story

 

He was hated and despised without cause

Man of Sorrows, to ponder and pause

The insensitivity of the world where jealousy is strong

Man of Sorrows, His name is long

 

Injustice and selfishness are separate from God

Man of Sorrows, his example to applaud

To walk His way, salvation all worthwhile

Man of Sorrows, upright with a smile

 

Follow His lead to our gain

Man of Sorrows, such a name

Creator of the world where the world knew him not

That is the circumstances for the reputation He got

Sin and the Sinner Meet

Sin and the Sinner Meet
By David Smith August 13, 2013

Where there is sin, there is always a sinner
That was the drift as our pride grew thinner
Looking for evidence in a crime scene, we saw
Important people found guilty, as they’re broken and crawl

All our good works and training we do,
Is all in vain, we can’t work our way through.
No matter how many times at the stop sign we pause
Go though it once we are subject to the laws.

We talked about Joshua and his detective work came about
Important people in scriptures were guilty, no doubt.
Biblical history ties together from the past to today.
Now is the time for forgiveness we pray.

Biblical truths came to light at Vacation Bible School.
God’s law is standard, the perfect rule.
So How to measure up, and what can we do.
The finished work of the Cross, the evidence points to.

There is nothing we can do, our righteousness as filthy rags.
Christ and, Christ crucified is all we can brag.
The wages of sin is death
But the gift of God is eternal life.
That was the message of meditation to night

What a humble message at vacation bible school
The Ten Commandments, and perfection, is God’s perfect rule
A touching story of “The Little Flower”
A mayor of New York with judgement power
Fined a man guilty of stealing bread was his sin
To keep his family fed for this city to live in
The mayor paid the fine and fined everyone around
For allowing poverty to flourish in The New York City town
The judge set the fine and paid it too
That is the reflection of what the Lord Jesus did do

Sin always has a very high price
It’s the shedding of blood for payment to suffice
The wages of sin is death and eternal punishment severe
Though sin is pleasurable, it’s the end result to fear
David with one sin broke 10 Commandments grand
A man after God’s own heart at His mercy he did stand

Jesus came into the world from heaven
Just like the manna, the bread un-leaven
I and my Father are one
The Saviour, the Lamb, He is the Son
God took all my sin and laid it on the cross
That cross built for me and Christ paid the cost

It is finished. At the cross, He did pay
He took my night and turned it into day
Pilate knew Jesus was innocent, in Him he found no fault
Afraid of loosing esteem, the crucifixion he did not halt.

Under the law we are talented sinners
We do it all quite well
Yet we need a saviour to keep us from eternal hell
Realize I’m a sinner and looking for a door
Jesus is the answer. He settled the judgement score
What a humble message at the closing of the day
Sin paid in full, to accept it and obey.

Sunday Night Gospel in Poem Form
John 3:16
By David Smith Sunday August 10, 2014
God so loved the world; to come a certain way
To realize I am a sinner and Christ my sins did pay.
Realizing I am bankrupt and nothing I can do.
God so Loved the World. HIS way it shines through

The Pharisees love of money, and God benefits are wealth
That is Man’s perspective and Christ tips the religious shelf.

How could God be loving to sacrifice His son?
Unless there is a danger where hell and fire run
And the Love is simple, a person that we trust
The Loving Lord Jesus, belief in Him a must.

And it is secure; eternal if you will
Whom he justified he glorified for His eternal thrill
Unless response expected, and a big yes, if you please
For if it is denial, Lake of Fire, He will sneeze.

And that is the Gospel, the choice is up to you
Reject it or embrace it, which door do you go through?
