A Poem about Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The Semester is over and now I have a little bit more time. I was searching in my room and I came across a book I had of rhymes and poems. I thought it to be good to share with you one of them. I will continue to work on my posts about the Jehovah’s Witnesses, but I just thought you might enjoy this piece of work. My next post should be up in about a week, so just hang in there. For the mean time, I really hope you enjoy this post. Thanks for visiting my blog and feel free to leave a comment or question with your e-mail and I will get to you as soon as possible.

 

Rhymes of bible doctrines

Jehovah’s Witnesses:

 If you will go up on a street corner

On some Saturday afternoon,

And will not be too impatient

You’ll see something pretty soon;

From sev’ral directions there’ll arrive

A number of zealous workers,

With books and pamphlets in their hands;

 And will show they are not shirkers.

 

They’re on an important mission,

 They have a message to get out,

They’re not too sure of what they’re giving,

Not too certain what it’s about;

“Millions now living will never die,”

May be part of what they’re telling,

Many of their books are given free,

But a lot of them they’re selling.,

 

They offer no Bible salvation,

They know no Christ of Calvary;

To the he is the son of Joseph,

His claims are false to deity;

He was born the highest of the race,

But He was just only a man,

Why they use the Bible for a textbook,

Is hard for one to understand.

 

Pastor Russel and Judge Rutherford,

Had their day and now are dead;

Neither of them expected to die;

At least, that was what they said;

But like all the rest of human race,

Death finally was their portion,

And now in that region far removed,

They may have another notion.

One better take the Scripture as they say,

The plain, simple Bible statement,

Where a hell is threatened for the lost

And continue without abatement;

We should not magnify God’s mercy

To exclusion of His justice,

Just take the bible as it says,

With every truth God’s left us.

 

They have adopted a bible name,

No longer are they “Russelites;”

They are now “Jehovah’s Witnesses,”

Better still would be, “No-hell-ites;”

Jehovah is all the God there is,

They see no blessed Trinity;

They refuse to see God’s sacrifice,

The bleeding Lamb on Calvary.

 

Once called, “Bible Students Watch Tower,”

Was known as “Millenial Dawn,”

But after all names are considered,

It is better labeled “Devil’s Spawn;”

Rejects plain teaching of the Bible,

Twists its statements seriously,

But God’s truth still remains unshaken,

And will through all eternity.

 

Let us warn you my dear, unsaved friend,

Of this subtle, religious cult,

Who compasses both sea and the land

To accomplish same sad results;

Anti-Biblical and anti-Christ,

They know nothing of real salvation,

Satan has blinded their sightless eyes,

To God’s deeper revelation.

-Look to the Heavens-

(I am not a good writer, but I put this together because I have been think about God and his creation how wonderful He is. Probably 90-95% of this comes from the Holy Scripture. Hope you enjoy it and I hope this gets you thinking about God’s glory and the glory of Jesus Christ.)

 

 

Look to the heavens

And see the work of God

Consider the heavens and the order thereof

The moon and the stars He has made

At the sound of His mighty voice they came into being

He laid the foundation of the earth

The morning stars sang together

The sons of God all shouted for joy

The heavens declare the glory of God

And the firmament shows His handiwork

In them has He set a tabernacle for the sun

Six days of creation and the seventh day for rest

He is the blessed One in whom there is Love

Look around you

And see His eternal power and divine nature

We are without excuse for your eternal power

And divine nature are clearly seen in what you have made

The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof

The world and they that dwell therein

For He has founded it upon the seas,

And established it upon the floods

The birds of the air are His

The creeping things that creepeth are His

The wild beasts are His

The cattles are His

All who dwell therein are His

Our worship belongs to the Most High

By the word of the LORD were the heavens made

Look to the heavens for He is there

Look to God for He cares.
