The Evil One, Poetry by Deborah Ann

Taken from a sister’s blog: Poetry by Deborah Ann

Be watchful of the Wicked One,
for he is the Great Deceiver
he is roaming around like a Lion
looking to devour every believer.

He is like the Dragon of Old,
still spewing out his poison mire
be careful of this godless Beast
or you’ll spend eternity in his fire.

For, he is he King of Babylon,
the King of the Bottomless Pit
where he’s making plenty of room
for the lost and unsaved to fit.

Beware of the Prince of the Air,
the Ruler of the World, the Thief
for he is the Grand Old Liar
and wants to rob you of your belief.

He is the Evil and Lawless one,
our Adversary, the Father of Lies
and it is his soul’s desire
that all shall look into his eyes.

He is the Man of Sin, our Accuser,
the Tempter and your Murderer
he is the Power of Darkness within
he is Satan, the Serpent Lucifer.

Be on the alert for the Anti Christ,
the Angel of Light, the god of this Age
he will transform himself into peace
before he sets off his bloody rage!

Ephesians 2:1-6, The Message

It wasn’t so long ago that
you were mired in that old stagnant life of sin.
You let the world, which doesn’t know the first thing about living,
tell you how to live.
You filled your lungs with polluted unbelief, and then exhaled disobedience.
We all did it, all of us doing what we felt like doing,
when we felt like doing it,
all of us in the same boat.
It’s a wonder God didn’t lose his temper
and do away with the whole lot of us.
Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love,
he embraced us.
He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ.
He did all this on his own,
with no help from us!
Then he picked us up and set us down
in highest heaven
in company with Jesus, our Messiah.
