I DO NOT KNOW

God’s foreknowledge of our actions

Of our thoughts and even whims,

Does not alter His responses

To our needs when brought to Him.

.

.

Sure, it is hard to understand it,

Do His actions toward man

Ever change?  Enough to know

That God had and has a plan!

.

.

Is His plan ever retroactive?

Does He ever change, repent?

Yes!  With Nineveh’s example (*)

It is agreed, He does relent.

.

.

Moses’ intervention, often

In the wilderness, would prove

That God’s predestined promise of

Dire judgment could be moved.

.

.

How to know unchanging nature

Of our God who changes not,

Not to worry!  Not your problem!

To know all is not our lot!

.

.

“How unsearchable His actions

And His ways past finding out.” (**)

He can save you and redeem you,

Even though you harbor doubt.

.

.

Though God sees and knows before hand

Just which way you choose to go,

Can a heart of strong repentance

Change His mind?  I still do not know!

.

.

(And I am not taking any chances!)

JUDAS, WAS HE SAVED?

Sure, we knew Judas as Jesus did.

Think He was fooled just a bit?

As treasurer, Judas, like, held the purse.

No, Christ was not fooled by it!

.

.

As a servant of sin he fooled no one!

Sure, loved money more than God!

When he threw that money at Pharisee’s feet,

Was it repentance in accord?

.

.

In accordance with true repentance,

Did he ever truly repent?

True repentance is followed by true hope,

As though receiving consent.

.

.

His spirit bears witness with yours when true!

We just know by faith forgiven!

We know, by faith, there is a place reserved

For this poor soul in heaven!

.

.

Great rejoicing!  We feel it inside!

Faith tells us so!

“Confess our sins…He is faithful and just

To forgive…” that sinner below!

.

.

God knows your heart, can you receive forgiveness?

.
