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?

“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

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?

My Bible, God’s Word, tattered and worn
Opened and closed in the wee hours of the morn
The Bible, well used, as pages they turn
Being chiselled in the heart, the scriptures we learn

A battered Bible, Faith says it all
Newness of life, a new birth as we crawl
Then to stand on God’s Word as we shout
It is finished, the Cross, what the Gospel is about

The bible, tattered, well worn, and read
Opened and shut, the Old Nature we dread

Like the tower of Babble we saw this day

The youth blindfolded, in educational play

To construct a wall around the group,

With cardboard boxes to be contained in the loop

Bickering and frustration as no one could see

Like an invisible language broken down that be

That was the game with a purpose we know.

Blindfolded, the kayos a frustrating show.

 

Man decides to be number one,

To build a tower to reach heaven’s sun

The Lord says “NO” to accomplishments of man

The Tower of Babble where men’s selfish nature might stand

 

Now looking skyward for lessons we learn;

The great flood, the rainbow, God’s Loving concern.

 

In our present day great towers from the earth

MAN still wants bragging rights and denies the second birth.

More confusion as the world’s in a spin

And blindfolded from Scripture as man’s importance enter in

 

That’s what I got from the lesson that day

God’s teaching me, I am weak by the way

He is the strength, don’t Labour in vain

Christ did it all, his suffering and shame.

Come unto me all ye that Labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest

Matthew eleven verse twenty-eight to memorize at best.
