Give me a break! It isn’t the drugs!
It’s not alcohol, cocaine, or meth!
You’re all so deceived! You haven’t a clue!
(And I sure hope those drugs lead to death!)
I’ve done all my homework – kept up with the times!
“Old fashioned” isn’t one of my traits.
Right now I use meth as the “popular” drug.
It’s the choicest of all of my baits!
I’m not picking on druggies, just bragging a bit!
While I’m at it I’ll tell you some more!
My tactics are perfect! I’ve got many deceived!
When I knocked they all answered the door!
Adultery and murder; a proud look and lust!
Gossip and anger and hate!
Free sex and lying; a backbiting tongue!
There’s so very much more – you just wait!
The lack of compassion I use very well!
Envy is once of my best!
Vengeance, resentment; let’s not forget fear!
I can’t have folks being at rest!
Self-justification, the need to control;
Perversion, rebellion and strife.
Judgment and apathy; the art of deception –
All of these things destroy life!
Nope! Not the drugs, unforgiveness or greed!
It’s not any one thing you can name.
I tell you all now – it’s me! Me! Me! Me!
All this “stuff” I just use to my fame!
I won’t share the credit – not with person or thing.
The credit’s completely, all mine!!
No one else can do the things that I do
With such cunning and crafty design!
You’re all merely puppets! I’m the grand puppeteer!
I pull strings and you gladly comply!
You succumb oh-so-quickly when I pull and I tug,
And most likely you will till you die!!!
I use many things to lay claim to your soul!
And I must say they’re working quite well!
I have you committed to all else but God,
And I can’t wait to see you in hell!!!
Gleefully yours, Satan.
Friends, you don’t have to be controlled by Satan.
There IS a way out! His name is Jesus!
Whether or not you are consciously aware of it, you are in a spiritual battle now, and will be until the time of your appointed death. Satan is waging war against your soul. With Jesus you have everything you need to defend yourself.
Without Jesus there IS no defense.
The bible states in John chapter 3, verse 16:
‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.’
Romans chapter 10, verse 9 states:
‘…if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.’
1st John chapter 1, verse 9 states: ‘If we confess our sins, He (God) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’
You can confess Jesus Christ as your Lord
and Savior and can confess your sins to God anywhere and at any time.
God is everywhere at all times and He will hear you!
This is good news worth sharing!!!!
