Dangers Ahead

 
 

Dangers Ahead
By Tom D Blakely

Oh Christians how long will it be
Before our shallowness we see?
Years after we have come to God
We still have no time for His word!
What dangers lie ahead for us
Without His light we’re quickly lost.
Is God alive to us in prayer
And is His glory our desire?

Or would we hear God secondhand
By trusting in the word of man;
A preacher who will not offend
And keeps us fitly entertained.
Someone to lead us in God’s ways
To help us through our busy days.
For life is crammed and we’ve no time
The preacher’s word will do just fine.

False prophets from the devil come
Wolves know when it is feeding time!
They build a megachurch on pride
And claim that God is on their side!
They make the Christian life so nice
All gladly pay the asking price.
Faith is transferred from Christ to church
A trick the devil has used much.

And when our faith is almost gone
We wonder what we have done wrong?
God will not lose one of His own
Though they may wander far from Him.
We’re now surrounded by a hoard
Of people who do not know God!
They’ve turned the Bible upside down
And skewed God’s word to suit their own!

Enough of this, it’s time to leave
Before our children are deceived!
But pride this church is founded on
And pride may yet become our ruin.
Lord help, we don’t know where to go?
God answers us, and says – You do.
At last you have come back to Me
Have faith and I will make you free.

Oh Christians how long will it be
Before our shallowness we see?
Years after we have come to God
We still have no time for His word!
What dangers lie ahead for us
Without His light we’re quickly lost.
Is God alive to us in prayer
And is His glory our desire?

Jesus said:
“If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
[John 8:31-32]
