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

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

Oven, pan and Frying pan, Windows in the Lord’s life
Where we can see growth of Christianity and might
The first glimpse of the Lord, shepherds all around
Born in a stable, in a humble life, he was found
The second window, the glimpse to appear
When the wise men came to worship him here
And down to Egypt to get out of Herod’s way
For Herod started eliminating children that very day

And then to a time when Christ could read
And taught the Rabbis spiritual need
Special observations from the glimpse in the oven door
What God the Father had for us in store
Then the glimpse of the Blood Stained Cross
And the Empty Tomb as eternal life comes across
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
And development of Christianity as his light brightly shone
From the oven door and glimpses to see
What the sacrifices in Leviticus are telling me.

Blind man Helped me See

Blind man helped me see
May 7, 2015

A blind man tapping on the sidewalk as he navigates down the street
A picture of the roadway through his hands and feet
He taps out a scene as he quickly glides ahead
Thinking of his confidence with his erect head
Why can’t I have that motivation to see the things unseen?
And walk in mere shadows with enthusiasm so keen
Being able to see and touch and feel and taste
And yet timid to walk through life
A fear that is a waste
A blind man tapping on the sidewalk
A picture of love and hope
And through all life’s difficulties
We too can find ways to cope

To see the things unseen and to tap into eternal life
The word of the Lord, to avoid the great inferno of his might

Blessed are those that believe as scripture unfolds before our very eyes
And all the wisdom of the Lord for us to memorize.

As a blind man walks by faith while he taps down the street
Its faith in Christ, the knowing to be saved is all so sweet

Its faith that can move mountains the obstacles within
The blessed hope, the glorious appearing, our focus to keep us from sin.
Hope is not wishful thinking of a future, past our prime
It is divine promises by faith alone in our creator’s time

So I see the blind man how he sees things unseen
Only an illustration, of what salvation can truly mean.

A blind man taping on the sidewalk as he taps down the street
The light of the world shines before us, the gift of eternal life at our feet
Let’s accept we are blind as he guides us along
To see by faith alone in his hand we are strong

Tasting the Furry of Niagara Falls

Tasting the Furry of Niagara Falls
By David Smith June 5, 2014

The mighty thunderous roar and turbulence throughout
Huge mountains of water and mist and wind about
And to be at peace where this all takes place
The Horn blower Boat tour, Nature we can face

And be at rest on that stable ship
In the turbulent waters it is an amazing trip.
In the comfort of God’s hand as this turbulence is all around
We can taste His furry
And at peace so safe and sound

So to think of scripture
As the Red Sea divides
And God’s chosen people to solid ground they stride
In the midst of turbulent waters, Mountains gushing all around
Water creating a draft as a hurricane is bound

This is the safety like being in Noah’s ark
In the midst of darkness
God’s word creates the spark
To experience the mist
And full brunt of wind
With wonderment of nature
God’s word to rest therein

With His fingers he put the stars in place
The wonder of the falls His handiwork we can face
To be on the ship the Maid of the mist it was
Under new management creating a buzz
So I see the power of God’s mighty hand
He is in control for this man made ship to land.

And what a great experience where Man and Nature Meet.
The magnificence of God; His power can’t be beat.
