    honest caring
    kind secure
    one look from him and suddenly they would allure
    the rhythm in his words
    and the beat in his walk made life
    just seem like a beautiful love song
    if only

    his eyes were hypnotic
    theytook her to a place where everything
    is beautiful
    soft but strong
    silent but heard
    simply being in his sight gave her exuberance
    if only

    his hands wiped away pain
    hurt and hate
    resentment sorrow
    they smiled and together
    they smiles lit up the room
    his fingers were never used to hurt and always used to heal
    if only

    if only she had ever experienced this kind of love
    if only every beautiful thing she said about him was true
    if only he loved her
    if only his eyes did not represent hot black coals
    if only his hands were not brick walls
    if only his walk and words didn't scare her
    if only she could stop writing these poems

    EVANGEL

    Evangel #1

    " My brothers, friends, and those who are fearing God, hear!
    God is good, His goodness endures forever.
    Listen to me, and know the benefits
    Of a favorable relationship with God.
    God chooses whom He favors and makes them prosper.
    God leads whom He favors out of oppression.
    God endures disobedience, for a short time,
    As a good loving father.
    God overthrows the enemies of the ones He favors.
    God gives upright men to make decisions,
    Strong leaders to rule,
    and provides assurance that He placed them there."

    " Listen to me!
    God has brought THE SAVIOR, Jesus
    Our righteousness as He has promised.
    To you today, I bring the message of salvation.
    Don't be among the ones
    That do not recognize Jesus!
    Don't be among the ones
    That say " away with Jesus !"
    Don't be like those that said " crucify him!"
    I beg you, today
    Don't reject the message of salvation,
    And the One Savior, Jesus. "

    "Jesus was condemned
    And His condemnation made true
    The words of the prophets.
    God in Christ received a death sentence for you.
    Innocent blood drenched the cross for you;
    The spotless, sinless, guiltless lamb of God
    Slain on the cross for you."

    " Please, I beg you today!
    Don't reject the One Savior, Jesus!
    He has already been humiliated, tortured, spat upon.
    Paraded through the streets.
    Please, I beg you today!
    Don't reject the Savior, Jesus,
    That was sentenced to death,
    A horrible death, a death slow and unmerciful,
    The death on the cross for you."

    "They murdered An innocent man,
    God in Christ, God's only begotten Son,
    Murdered on the cross for you.
    The words of the prophets became true
    When the One Savior, Jesus
    Died on the cross for you."

    "After God in Christ, the One Savior, Jesus
    Was dead! dead! dead!
    His lifeless body was entombed,
    Placed in a grave for you.
    The Savior, Jesus died for you.
    I beg you in the name of Jesus,
    Do not reject the One Savior, Jesus ! Today!"

    "The good news, the message of salvation is
    God raised Jesus from among the dead for you,
    and he was seen by those who had traveled with Him.
    From Galilee to Jerusalem."

    "Listen to me! I tell the truth!
    and bring you good news!
    What God promises He fulfills.
    God promised to provide a Savior
    God has proved He has provided a Savior
    By raising Jesus from among the dead, for you
    The One Savior, Jesus, God's Son
    Raised from among the dead, for you
    God did not let His Son, the One Savior, Jesus
    The Holy one, see decay."

    "This world has produced great people, good people.
    But death and decay was their end!
    God has placed His seal of approval on
    The One Savior, Jesus, His Son,
    By raising Him from among the dead,
    and not letting Jesus after death rreturn to decay.
    Praise God; the One Savior, Jesus lives today!"

    "Are you lost? Are you unsaved? Are you unsure?
    Is sin weighing you down?
    Are the everlasting torments of hell your desire?
    or would you be saved today from hell and its fire?"

    "Listen to me,
    My brothers, friends, and those who are fearing God, hear!
    I want you to know that
    Through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.
    Through Jesus everyone who believes is justified from everything.
    They could not be justified from by the law of Moses.
    Today, I beg you,
    Listen and hear!
    Beware that what the prophets have said
    Does not happen to you -----
    Look! You rejecting, unbelieving,
    Despiser's and scoffers,
    Be amazed wonder! and perish (disappear)!,
    For I am going to do something in your days
    That you would never believe
    Even if someone told you."


    "Today! Accept the grace of God, the Savior Jesus.
    Today! Let Jesus become your righteous!
    Today! Do not reject the word of God!
    Today! Do not consider (judge) your selves unworthy of eternal life."

    " God has commanded that I become
    The Light to those that stumble in darkness,
    and The Rescuer of those drowning in sin.
    Today! Eternal life is offered to you.
    Today! Forgiveness of sin is offered to you.
    Today! I bring the good news, the message of salvation."

    "Who amongst you is happy to hear this news?
    Who is glad and will honor (glorify) the word of the Lord?
    Today! You can have your sins forgiven
    through the Savior, Jesus
    Today! Through the Savior, Jesus
    everyone who is believing is being justified.
    Today! If your heart feels the love of God,
    Today! If your mind knows God's mercy
    Is through The Savior, Jesus
    And His death and resurrection.
    Come forward if you will confess with your mouth
    The Lord Jesus and believe in your heart
    That God has raised Him from the dead, and
    You will be saved, today! And counted as one appointed
    For eternal life, Today!"
