HIGH THE REACH

Need way more good thoughts less of the bad.

More of the happy!  Far less of the sad!

More about Heaven, of course, reaching high!

Air there is thin, but when Jesus is nigh.

.

.

Then purity of air and the breeze

Where beautiful flowers, tall as the trees,

Spread their fragrance throughout everywhere!

No need for artifacts, pretend to compare!

.

.

Perfumery needed beneath God’s domain!

To cover uncleanness, always the same,

Since Satan won, in that garden down there,

Only to lose our Heaven so fair!

.

.

Pure delight far above the sin land,

Where one can feel Satan’s heavy hand,

But no longer felt!  Sure, he is no more!

Cast out!  Unable to reach Heavens shore!

.

.

Delightful the living, no tempter around!

Deflated, defeated, and deep underground!

Satan forgotten!  Just Jesus abiding!

Goodness and joy forever confiding!

.

.

Forever!  If tired, of course, there is rest!

But with bodies glorified the very best

Is yet to come, when in spirit you fly

Transporting forever, just never die!

.

.

So have you considered just where and how?

Depends on whom or to what you kow-tow!

Stuff and things in Hell!  All together!

Down yonder with the best:  stormy weather!

.

.

If walking with Jesus, no need to fear!

Continue that joyous walk!  Ever near,

Just how can one lose?  Sure, lean on His arms!

Resting in Jesus, nothing alarms!

.

.

Sir Cox  –  the S. H.  1.11.12

.

.

Of course, I want to see Him!

Look upon His face!

I FLEW WITH ANGELS

I do not think that God drives a Cadillac. (*)

And Chryslers are quite scarce up there.

While the angels do not live in palaces

They manage to look tidy, clean, and fair.

.

.

Though things on earth do not seem applicable,

Angels can adjust, I know it is true.

I saw the white, I felt their hands though lightly.

I just relaxed, nothing left to do.

.

.

The moment I gave up with both legs dying,

My hands three inches from the ground,

I was lifted, carried, and I thanked them.

But there were no “Jump Masters” around.

.

.

“Jump Masters carried you?  No!  I do not think so.”

“You flew in alone and clobbered me!”

I then came to the most natural assumption;

Hands felt real and white all I could see.

.

.

I actually was carried by those angels!

Obvious reality assumed!

Reality?  But angels are just spirits!

Perhaps I am not spiritually attuned!

.

.

A cool breeze blows, we assume just happened.

Or were a host of angels flying by?

I do believe they are real and we will be like them!

Angels been around, they never die!

.

.

So what we have here is a dimension,

A dimension of the spirit, not unknown!

Believed in and accepted unrestrictive!

We will fly with them nevermore alone!

.

.

(*) Me?  I cannot even spell it!

MY FUTURE

Ecstatic in the wonderment as spirit did embrace

Another spirit known to Him a spirit saved be grace.

The joyful laughter from each one each relative and friend.

The laughter, more like singing, that with each other blends.

.

.

And this goes on forever, ah yes, so full complete!

No time or inclination for worry or defeat!

Just joy and peace forever, in fact, what do they mean?

No opposites of joy and peace not here so it would seem.

.

.

A new vocabulary now, hallelujah!  Yes!

I press toward the throne of God, many bow, I press!

His body glorified, I see nail scars in his feet!

The horror of His suffering I can see like a repeat!

.

.

My tears came slowly then a flood, the Savior reaches down.

He dries my eyes then tenderly He places a crown

Of righteousness upon my head.  This crown I do not deserve.

“You do, by virtue of My death, I took your sins.  Observe

.

.

The one you felt was hopeless, a prostitute, she came

I died for her I heard her cry.  She called out My name

I died for her, I died for you.  Now you are both the same!

This ‘Crown of Righteousness’ I give; I give to you in My Name!”

.

.

(His righteousness imputed to me as if I were truly

righteous, and I am in His sight!  “We shall all be

changed, for we shall see Him as He is.”  I Corinthians 15:51-56

THE WISE CHOICE

No confirmed unbeliever can inherit

Everlasting joy and peace above!

But the righteous made righteous be adoption

Are already ever living in His love! (*)

.

.

There is nothing that can separate believers

Who by the Spirit are reborn,

From God’s love who gave His Son to save us.

Can a child from his mother’s arms be torn? (**)

.

.

It could happen in this day and has happened.

But God has promised never to suffer loss.

The loss of any of His children who have

Arrived at acceptance through the cross.

.

.

The cross is historically factual

“Before Christ,” and after dated true.

Persecuted Christians gladly suffered

To gain heaven!  What else could they do?

.

.

Then you measure time to everlasting,

A ruler or math you do not need!

This beautiful life is but a vapor

The difference we all must concede!

.

.

So where will you spend the everlasting?

The choice is positively yours!

I choose Jesus as my Redeemer

To Satan and his tensile lures!

.

.

Calculus, you do not need to prove out

Or measure the best choice to make!

It is simple as knowing the difference

Between real joy and stake and bake!

.

.

CELESTIAL BODIES

There are bodies, celestial and terrestrial.

Terrestrial, of course, we recognize,

Celestial, one day recognizable

Our bodies then glorified!

.

.

We will not be unlike His resurrected body as

Lighter than air He ascended.

“We shall all be changed…” twinkling, in a moment.

Gravitation contended! (1)

.

.

This vile body physical, transient, mortal,

Must put on immortality!

Will be like Christ’s ascending body (2)

As from earths body freed!

.

.

We will be freed from bodily ailments, sickness!

Spirit gravitational none,

All else including planets and suns. (3)

Surely know where they are coming from.

.

.

Whirling continually but in control with

Occasional fragments falling.

By the way, have you ever noticed that those

Pieces are God controlled?

.

.

Falling where?  No population.  Just desert!

Do we thank God for His care?

Just a huge indentation in the sand,

Only snakes and scorpions out there.

.

.

God’s care comes daily to those who are His!

A handful of Christians may sway.

Vengeance of God who claim daily His care

And protection yet another day!

MY LOVING GOD

A loving God does not send

Anybody to hell!

Nor any soul for that matter.

Which is which?  Can you tell!

.

.

We will know in heaven!  Spirit or soul?

The difference,  associate

Spirit, soul, and body we will know!

The difference, no debate!

.

.

God does not send anywhere!

Truly everyone’s choice!

Your own choice, believe it or not!

How fair!  All have a voice!

.

.

Respected your voice that is

Cursing, preaching He hears!

To preaching you can feel His amen!

Cursing just fear and tears.

.

.

What then do you think He forgot,

Forgot to, like, make you rich?

You should be traipsing to the bank

Instead of, like, digging this ditch?

.

.

“I am the master of my own fate!”

I captain my own soul!

Nobody tells me what to do,

All is under control!

.

.

Instead I am in the soup kitchen

Of my God’s tenderest care!

Unworthy still He blesses,

With enough to give and share!

.

.

What He gives is not returnable!

He keeps giving me more.

Gifts of Grace!  What more do I need,

Until that eternal shore?

.

.

Forever and ever!  Believe it!

With God’s blessing and love!

What more can this soul ask for

Beyond that heaven above?

.

.

HEAVEN BOUND MOBILITY

Immortalize to commemorate

Sure, a statue will do!

True immortality does more

It is the real you!

.

.

Your spirit dormant in you

Can take you anywhere!

The real you let us elaborate

Heaven!  Let us go there!

.

.

Why not?  We are not limited!

Wish upon a star?

Only limit, I am made from mud

But long for, there you are!

.

.

Cannot do it!  Of course not!

Body will not permit!

Body is earthbound!  You stay!

Cannot get out of it!

.

.

But in your mind you fly away,

Spirit takes its fight!

Body, spirit different, like,

Bright day to black night!

.

.

No night there, for Father’s light

Brightens every nook!

God’s light is bright evermore!

Check!  It is in the book!

.

.

Jesus, “Light of the world,” and

Everyone who is born

Again, spirit will inherit

Body will conform.

.

.

Spirit light just dimly now

That in reality

Is heavens light to glow now

And throughout eternity!

.

.

Real?  Of course!  But lightly

Our spirits long to fly!

Eternal creatures we are now

And we will never die!

.

.

So, “Heavenly minded,” it is said of some,

“They are no earthly good!”

But if they truly believed in Him

They would mobilize as they should!

.

.

If we know we are heaven bound, we will mobile!

.
