    He greatness,
    His glory
    Can not be hid
    Nor is there any
    Substitution.

    No turkey at Thankgiving
    No rabbit at Easter nor
    Santa at Christmas in spite
    Of their mass distribution...

    He remains and forever will be...
    The REAL thang baby!

    Though God haters strive to
    Remove His greatness...His glory,
    From school halls...
    Still His voice calls.

    They try to bind Him with a
    Misinterpretation of our constitution.
    Yet, His greatness...His glory,
    Cannot be removed by the ACLU
    Or any other institution.

    He remains and forever will be...
    The REAL Thang Baby!!!

    The more they try to hide Him,
    The greater He shines.
    For He is revealed with great joy,
    In His people's hearts and minds.

    Though their walls be great and
    Though they be high,
    Still they can not
    Hide Him with an eloquent lie.

    Their own personal lives
    Are messed up and on the brink.
    Still He reaches out...saying,
    If ANYONE thirsts, let him
    Come to Me and drink.

    He's Jehovah God
    Manifested in Immanuel (God with us)
    The Son
    Jesus Christ.

    Whether there be
    The gods of China
    Or the Egyptian gods of Africa,
    No other god can stir me,
    No other god can move me,
    Because their foundation
    Is not truth nor life, but
    Lies and death.

    They have eyes but
    They cannot show me
    The way of the wise.
    They have ears,
    But they cannot hear my cries.
    They have hands,
    But they cannot pull me
    Out of the strongholds of sin.
    They have mouths but no
    Words can come from within.

    Jesus Christ...The TRUE and LIVING God.
    There is no substitute...remember this.
    Judas will tell you,
    He cannot be removed with a kiss...
    I tell you,
    He cannot be removed by a spell or a wish.

    No amount of money or power
    Can hide...so awesome a God.
    Even if they managed to remove His name
    I would reveal it in my heart...because

    I've walked along
    The foot steps of death,
    But then He taught me
    How to love myself.
    I was buried in sin,
    Yet He raised me up again...thus

    He remains and forever will be...
    The REAL Thang Baby!!!

    So go ahead...remove Him from
    Your libraries...still He lives.
    Remove the Navity scenes...still He lives.
    Remove Him from
    The channels of government...still He lives.
    X His name out of Christmas...still He lives.
    Try and rape His truth
    Under the sheets of your philosophies...still He lives.


    Their knee shall bow before Him
    Whether they want to or not.
    At the end of all truth in sentence,
    God is the dot.

    He is the highest height of forever
    And the mountain called Eternity.
    Jesus Christ...there is no other name,
    By which man can be saved.
    There is no other substitution
    That God has gave...thus

    He remains and forever will be...
    The REAL Thang Baby!!!

    i want to thank you for taking me to church this morning...
    i didn't do the Easter Egg thing at home for my babies
    because i'd rather them learn the real thing than the
    mainstream traditional thing...
    what did i feel guilty for?
    thank you joycerogers!!!

    J'hiah: I'm feeling ya...all the way...thanks :)

    Rich: Glad ya felt it...sho is...sho is.

    Wildflower: Sis, I know exactly what you mean. I have three kids.
    I choose from the very beginning that they would not allowed to indulge in substitutions. I got
    a lot of flak about this from of all people...christians.
    However, I have chose not to live a life of compromise
    My God is a jealous God and He ain' about sharing
    His glory wit no one...not even a rabbit. Thanks
    for the read Sis. Don't feel guilty...for in this you have
    pleased God. You can't please everybody all da time.
    Besides, He's the only one that counts in the end. :)

    Rashad: Thanks for the read. :lol: I got the Right Thang baby!

    I love the way you broke it down. Coming up partly in the "system", I barely got to Church. But God was good; and I found out about the commercial thangs people been doing in the name of Jesus. I was shocked. Now my boys don't participate in anything that's not of God.

    The Devil will do anything to get his praise. Won't he? Don't get me started up in heah!

    Wonderful job, sista Joyce!

    joyce...you have shown uncompromising discipline here...very few are willing to allow the pen to speak the words of God and live the life that glorifies HIM. You have not swayed from your convicitos and this piece speaks well of that...

    Continue to honor HIM and HE shall continue to honor you...

    excellent scribe poet
