In Truth Alone

Truth alone shall set you apart, from others who choose to depart,
From inspired Truth in Godís Word, to follow men who have erred,
By adding to or taking away, what Godís Inspired Words truly say,
Without His precept upon precept, their teachings are simply inept.

Manís tradition and ways override, the Truth of God that is denied,
Even though the Bible they read, are the very Truths God decreed,
Men add their own religious twist, to create truth that doesnít exist,
Ignoring much, of what God said, they substitute Hope with dread.

Many drift away from Godly fear, ignoring Scriptures that are clear,
With an appearance of godliness, they deny Godís Righteousness,
Living much like the Nation Israel, their religion opposes Godís Will,
Leaving His Righteous Law behind, to follow those, spiritually blind.

With God, whoís unchanging friend, what will be their religious end?
Since the Lord is not mocked at all, just like Israel, they too will fall,
For God is Righteous and He must, oppose all men who live unjust,
Especially those who do proclaim, their unjust ways in Godís Name.

So while the many souls fall away, following men on a broader way,
Not only will they stand against us, who in Christ alone put our trust,
But, shall also come to that place, well beyond Godís saving Grace,
And find themselves upon the path, to see not life, but Godís Wrath.

(Copyright ©06/2010 Bob Gotti)

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

What A Blessed Hope, Bob Gotti

Bob,

To me, you've addressed some very strong Christian truths in the form of poetry and your poem reminds me of the verse that reads Ö

"But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Matthew 7:14 NIV

Thank you for sharing and continuing to support your faith through your gift of poetry.

God bless,

-Bob
