Title:*THE EVILS OF SIN*

Title:*HEART* Spiritual Gift Box - From Collection Painted by Rev.Bola


Title: *THE EVILS OF SIN*

1.
The Law of God

Perfect from the pod
A transcript of His perfection
His infinite affection. 
Not only Holy and just
Towards minds 
That willingly trust
And are likewise good
Yet often misunderstood, 
But calculated to promote
From eminence to remote 
The happiness 
That flushes the success 
Of vital subjects
Though not always by majority
To its divine authority. 

2.
The Transgression
 
Of The Law - sin
A malignity and vileness 
Proportioned only by 
The vast purity and kindness
Of the Excellence of God. 
As the greatest of evils
Sin perpetuates its
Spiritual upheavals
Beneath its dark 
And dingy hood,
In Opposition to 
The Greatest good.

Title:*Rock Of Strength

Title:*REVERSER ORB 9 - Spiritual Gift Box painted by Rev.Bola

Title:*Rock Of Strength*
1.
If you're feeling weak
And comfort you seek
Let God be your 
Strong unshakable rock
You can always unlock 
The strength of His heart
Such power to impart. 
Without distortion; 
He is your portion
He is more than enough
And has all the right stuff. 
2.
With happy speed
God is all you need
To become mature,
And eloquently sure
Well able to endure
Guided by reason
At the appropriate season.
3. 
Every bird must 
Have its nest.
It means having 
Your family’s best 
interests
Not be given
To emotional upsets
Complicated knots 
And tangled nets. 
4.
Funny how Dad's
Always the rock
In the family...see
He’s the 'go-to guy'
Who won't tell you a lie. 
The person you 
Can always rely on
To listen and dote upon. 
The one guy you may
Count on to be strong
Who will let you know 
When things are
 Right or wrong.
5.
Being the rock
Means always doing 
What you say 
You will do,
Figuring out the best 
Possible way through, 
Remaining calm when 
The situation seemed
Chaotic and panic deemed. 
6.
The rock is reason 
When emotion prevails
It's the wind in your sails,
It's compassion 
When hearts 
Appear hardened, 
Yet such imprisoned parts
Become humorous 
When least expected,
And a sad situation 
Can be corrected.

Title: *An Expansion of PSALM 24: 3-5 *

Title: *PSALM 24* - Visual Prayer Art from Set Painted by Rev.Bola

Title: *An Expansion of PSALM 24: 3-5 *
Who shall ascend 
The hill of the LORD?
Into such hearts 
Shall pure love be stored.
And who shall stand
In His Holy place?
God in His Mercy 
Shall lend him Grace.
He that has clean hands,
And a pure heart,
Who from the 
Word of God
Would never depart.
He who does not
Lift up his soul 
For what is false,
And is swift to respond
When duty calls.
He never swears, 
deceitfully.
But shares God's 
Teachings peacefully.
He will receive 
The joy and blessings 
Of our LORD;
All righteousness 
From the God 
Of his salvation
Under the auspices
Of Divine intervention.
