From Egyt to Canaan: What a Walk!

From Egypt to Canaan What a Walk!

A Series of meetings

 

Seeing the BIBLE as a mirror at a glance

To meditate on the WORD to the present NOT by Chance

How it fits is revel lent to today

From Egypt to Canaan much room to pray

To focus on God in this wilderness of mine

And leave temptations of Satan behind

It happened to the Jews to be lost no doubt

From Egypt to Canaan Heavenly lessons came about

What a joy with all its trials

Walking his way there is reason to smile.

 

 

Meditating on the Red Sea

(While drinking coffee on Break)

He drinks his coffee black and thinks of worldly trials

Like the ten plagues in Egypt

What the world or pharaoh did despise

Moses rod turned into a serpent and ate the Pharaoh’s snakes

The serpent was first mentioned where the Garden was at stake

God turned dust to lice, and what did it imply?

The magicians could not match it, last night we found out why.

God created man from the dust of the ground.

The Creator created life, Satan’s light was never found.

So we have temptations and trials in this land

To leave this cultured world

In the Heavenlies to stand.

So the Jewish Journey from Egypt we can see

In this present world what God’s WORD is telling me

So to Cling to Scripture; God’s Lesson there in life,

For forty years of wondering turns me toward the light.

 

The Manna

The manna the bread from heaven no doubt

Christ is the true bread

His WORD does shout

Exquisite pictures of Christ in Glory

The parables on earth speak of the Bible story.

Everything points to the Old Rugged Tree

Pictures of Christ fascinated to see

Studying His WORD the Work of the Cross

To Know I’m a sinner and no reason to be lost.

Christ died for Me the verses are clear

The Good News of the bible is reason to cheer

Not only the Manna but the Rock smitten twice

Moses lost entry to the Promised Land so nice

It was clear to Moses to speak to the Rock

When He hit that boulder, disaster struck

He got results but God’s Pattern took a turn

Moses and our obedience have to learn.

Stick to God’s pattern and pray and obey.

God’s Word speaks to me

It has something to say.

The Red Sea

 

The Red Sea, a body, not moving and still

A picture of the Lord Jesus, established what a thrill.

As Moses held his staff and the parting of the sea

A commandant a judgement an illustration we can see

And the crossing of the Jordan, a river that moves

Divided from Adam, the city set the groove

The Israelites cross with the Ark of the Covenant possessing.

The Lord is with them as our walk is professing.

Their difficulties and set backs were for our learning.

What’s in it for today, our passion is burning.

All these pictures from Egypt to Canaan

How they fit together, greater knowledge, the explaining.

So study the pattern from the First books of the Lord

Fulfilled in the New our understanding has soared.

Christ in you, Hope in Glory
Romans Fifteen, the text for the story
Pleasing God infirmities of the weak
These that are strong a mission to teach
Building up believers in Christ we can see
He pleased not himself and an encouragement he be
We have to do what God saved us for
To strengthen believers
The assembly is in store
We have to endure step forward in trust
Past time for our learning
Faith is so much.

His Workmanship

His Workmanship

By David Smith November 26, 2009

 

Jaws like teeth as it smashes and shakes

A building hammered to the ground, the progress it makes

Shoveled into a truck the rubble and grind

Only a memory that is left behind.

 

Earth movers hit hard, mighty machines of steel

Hydraulic lifts and turntable to wheel

All the technology to tear down a place

Think of the hope, new life we can face.

 

An earthen vessel as vulnerable as I

Subjected to sin, circumstances make me cry.

To be rebuilt, after we’re broken and torn;

A spiritual house, living stones are reborn.

 

A living hope and gloriously appearing

To be in Christ, this world is deceiving.

Rebuilt, a new, living stones I dare say

Being torn down though sin and decay

 

Born again, not of corruption and lies

It’s the spirit within, Christ’s workmanship thrives.

That is the Message, believe and repent

For the Love of the World Jesus was sent.

The Real Christmas Story

The Real Christmas Story

By David Smith December 18, 2012

 

“Twas the Night before Christmas and all through the town

The cattle were lowing; the inn-keeper wore a frown.

Mary in a stable, Lying in the hay,

Anticipating the birth, Of the first Christmas Day.

 

Born in a manger, the flocks in the field

The lambs as they wander for the good shepherd to appear;

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter

Even King Herod knew something was the matter.

 

“A King is born!” the Wise Men had to say

Herod was anxious to eliminate Children, that day

The King had his exodus, to Egypt he flew

The Old Testament predicted of his prophesy so true

All the parables and miracles become clear

He would we worshiped by believers so dear

 

To believe in his name; He is the light

Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night.

At the Bible Study

At the Bible Study

Inspired by St Luke 11:1-13

By David Smith November 16, 2007

Our Father in heaven is more than a friend

Urgent requests, time and time again

We can always ask; and at our beckoning call

When our life is scattering and we start to fall.

Through mere convenience friends come to the aide

Our LORD in heaven through His Son we have it made

We can always ask and we will receive

Knock and the door shall be opened

How wide! If you please.

Seek and ye shall find

Eyes will open up

And we will not be blind

We know how to give good gifts to our children and friends

Our Heavenly Father offers us eternal gift without end.

We learn how to address the Heavenly Father

Reverend and Holy is his name as we address no other

Develop structure and speak from the heart

Honesty and truth is where to take part.

Worship in spirit to the father above

He will reign down in infinite love

That’s what I got from the study last night

At Gospel hall; God’s Word shone so bright.

Inspired by Malachi Chapter 1

Inspired by Malachi Chapter 1

Inspired by Guest Speaker Ministry Meeting August 17, 2011

 

Malachi was laid out, the first chapter loud and clear

The preacher spoke; God’s wrath to fear.

The illustrations of Christ, the pattern we find

And in Malachi, first fruits, fall far behind.

 

The blind and the lame the diseased sacrifices are brought;

The symbols of Christ polluted a lot.

The pattern broken down, rejection came about

The finished work of the Cross;

God’s Love we can shout.

 

The door being opened, the Gentiles have hope.

Be part of the Chosen with faith alone to cope;

The works of man with polluted sacrifices and all

Illustrations of Christ, out of focus and small.

 

Malachi gives a warning to look at the heart;

The words of the Lord were biting and sharp.

O the rejection of obedience to God

The remnant by faith, Christ’s Righteousness we applaud.

 

That is the root for gentiles and Jews;

In Christ alone the faith that we choose;

It’s all in Malachi the last book of the Old

Four hundred years later the New Testament will be told.

That is the mystery the illustrations of Christ

And the stories of the Bible fit together so nice.

Reflections of the Cross in Old Testament

Reflections of the Cross in Old Testament

August 14, 2011

Inspired by guest speaker Breaking of Bread Service

Pictures of sacrifices looking back in the mirror;

Illustrations of Christ we hold so dear.

Everything points to the old rugged tree

One time sacrifice, He bled for me.

A president of the States built a navy great

From wooden ships to steel to make America rate

Criticised by his people, money was tight

The sacrifice he made turned out alright.

Ten years later to war with Spain

The superior navy was the gain

Pictures of the Old Testament fulfilled at the Cross

That is the point the preacher brings across

A onetime sacrifice, where the animals come to a close

The shedding of blood, the Lord Jesus chose.
