While Christians Sleep
© 2016 Tom D Blakely
The devil works while Christians sleep
Our Lord’s command we failed to keep;
“Keep watch and pray!” our Saviour said
But we grew tired and slept instead.
A mighty movement sweeps our land
And Satan’s chosen lead the band.
A product of our godless age;
A Christ-less “church” takes centre stage!
“Emerging church”, a clever name
To suit the devil’s latest game.
Emerging is his toxic spawn
To kill the gospel if he can.
To fool the lost he can and may
For most are hell-bound anyway.
O Satan will you ever learn?
God’s Word is true, you cannot win!
One thing his experts can’t explain
Because they are not born again;
A simple child of God can say:
I’m saved by grace, God showed the way!
For God convicted me of sin
Not church, nor priest, nor anyone,
Through faith in Christ I am forgiven
My Lord and Saviour, Christ alone!
Still somewhere in the phoney “church”
There may be some that God would reach;
For they’re no worse than others, lost
And Christ has paid sin’s ransom cost.
Though all have sinned and face God’s wrath
Christ died to be our sacrifice;
God welcomes all who come through Him
And in repentance are forgiven!
Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
