    what if God came down,
    to earth before he came again.
    and showed us a video tape,
    of all our past sins.
    would he be surprised to see,
    us doing things he said we shouldn't.
    or would we reply,
    Lord not i----no----we wouldn't.
    cuz God is too graceful,
    to make a mistake.
    and isn't too hasteful,
    to make the patient wait.
    he doesn't try mens souls,
    he tells them to try.
    to try to do his will--all good,
    before the earthly body dies.
    but now what if God came down,
    to earth before he came again.
    and collected all the unwilling,
    in a whirlwind?
    would we see an uncle,
    or a friend that we know?
    or could it be,
    that WE would be in the miraculous show?
    floating along side helpless others,
    cuz we wouldn't put our hands to the plow.
    crying Lord we believe,
    Lord we know you're real now!
    cuz we see with our eyes,
    and not with the mind.
    leaving us half selective seeing,
    and half blind.
    but if at all God would come down,
    to earth before he came again.
    would he find us fighting the devil,
    aiming for souls--for God to win.
    no i'm afraid not,
    we'd be too busy trying to get our lie straight.
    so that we and only the ones we love,
    could enter those pearly gates.
    Lord how precious you are,
    to give us time to do these things.
    before we have to endure,
    things we've never seen.
    thank goodness God is graceful enough,
    to punish us and teach us while keeping his promise.
    but woe unto those who don't believe,
    and to the hypocrites and doubting Thomases..........

    Very nice.

    He needs to come down now! Taking all the world's nonsense away. Taking away lies and corruption, drugs and destruction. Car jacking, gun smacking. Law breakers need to pay now.

    All politicians need to be washed. Cleaned up redressed. Made to serve us right. One large bar of soap is needed to wash out the mind and mouth of our current president. Take him and his family to the edge and show them the fire and brim-stone. They would be very busy trying to get their lie straight.

    If I commanded three lighting bolts. One would be used now to wake this world up! :uhoh: BAM! BAM! BAM!

    "we'd be too busy getting our lie straight".....Umph. I think you're right, some would have the nerve to think that they could possily lie to God. You gave us something to ponder indeed, and I like that in a scribe. Flow on.
