Psalm 49:20; Isaiah 42:8; Hebrews 2:6-7

All men are created in the image of God. They are His children, beloved sons and daughters. Even though some appear to be born in fornication and adultery, they are God's beloved children. No man can create life nor reproduce spirit. This is written in Isaiah 45:9-12 for those who despise men "appearing" to be born in adultery, "Woe to him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou, or thy work (namely you and I) He hath no hands? Woe to him that saith to his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth? Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask of me things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands, command ye me. I have made the earth and created man upon it: I, even my hands have stretched out the heavens, and all their hosts have I commanded". THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FATHERLESS CHILD OR CHILD OF FORNICATION AMONG THE CHILDREN OF MEN. Jesus is the one who said, "And call no man your father on the earth: for one is your father which is in heaven", Matthew 23:9. Isaiah recognized this saying, "But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our Potter; and we all are the work of thy hands, Isaiah 64:8. For that reason Jephthah was chosen by God as a judge of Israel although his mother was a harlot, Judges 11:1. Understand that we all are the children of God.

Since this is true, no man is lost but the son of perdition as Jesus testified in John 17:12. Doctrines that teach otherwise defy Christ. Who is this son of perdition? It is Satan, God's enemy, as it is written, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God or worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God shewing himself that he is God," II Thessalonians 2:3-4. "The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is," Revelation 17:8. What temple is this? "What? know ye not that YOUR BODY is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you which ye have of God and ye are not your own?" I Corinthians 6:19. Isaiah identified "who the son of perdition is" when he wrote long before Paul wrote to the Thessalonians. Isaiah said, "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground which didst weaken the nations. For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God, I will sit on the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High," Isaiah 14:12-14. Satan has bound men physically and mentally and cast them into a spiritual prison of ignorance and deceit, "convincing men that he is God" and teaching them that Jesus was wrong, and more humans will be lost beside the son of perdition. Believe the texts presented here ... "that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil who are taken captive by him at his will," II Timothy 2:26.

Salvation of the whole visible world of men could only be done by one, Jesus, as Paul wrote, "Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death, he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage," Hebrews 2:14-15. Jesus alone had the power to save because God found him acceptable. Isaiah wrote "And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore, his arm brought salvation unto him (that is Jesus, God's righthand of power) and his righteousness it sustained Him. For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon His head; and He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak," Isaiah 59:16-17. This prophecy covers all men at all times. No man ever could save himself nor can any do it today. Why? "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God," Romans 3:23. "For there is not a just man upon the earth that doeth good and sinneth not," Ecclesiastes 7:20. Every minister today cannot save because we all come short and have sins of ignorance which we do not know, but Jesus alone was flawless, and God appointed him alone to do that job. Ministers can only tell the story. They are powerless to save.

Since every man that ever was is a beloved child of God and not the son of perdition as Satan is, the salvation of all men has to be taught to both the ministers and to the people. The angel said, "I bring tidings of great joy WHICH SHALL BE TO ALL PEOPLE"...singing "Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth, good will to men," Luke 2:10,14. At Christ's baptism John declared, "Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world," John 1:29. This is the same John of whom Jesus testified, "Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist," Matthew 11:11; John 5:31-36. Please believe Jesus and believe John because I repeat, that Jesus has taken away the sin of the whole world. Satan has taught a doctrine of doubt on this subject. He has caused men's eyes to pass over these words, but to focus on the "appearance" of condemnation when they read the Bible. Paul wrote that condemnation of men was done away in II Corinthians 3:7-9,11,12. "But if the ministration of death, written and engraved in stones was glorious so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away; how shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of condemnation be glory much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious. Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech". Satan has caused men to continue to preach condemnation of men in spite of the plain speech Paul wrote, I Corinthians 2:4; II Corinthians 5:18-19.

Read Matthew 6:10, 18:14. Paul prophesied that this mystery would be shown when he said, "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior who WILL HAVE ALL MEN TO BE SAVED, and to come into the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ, who give HIMSELF A RANSOM FOR ALL to be testified in due time, I Timothy 2:3-6. He did not say a ransom for some but for all. Hosea said, "I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death I will be thy plagues; O grave I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from my eyes," Hosea 13:14. Jesus did this for God when he died on the cross, but Satan has taught that God failed to do this for all men because some are already lost. Jesus himself tried to explain this in parable, but ministers have failed to understand it because of demons. Jesus said, "For the son of man is come to save that which was lost. How think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, verily I say that he rejoiceth more of that sheep than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so, it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish," Matthew 18:11-14. BELIEVE JESUS, that only the son of perdition which is Satan shall perish. I tell you when Jesus comes again, he will come to the mountains of this earth for every one of the lost sheep. In Hebrews 13:8 Paul wrote, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever". And Malachi wrote, "I am the Lord thy God and I change not, therefore, ye sons of Jacob are not consumed," Malachi 3:6. Paul declared again, "Therefore, by the offense of one (Satan) judgment came upon all men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one (Jesus) the free gift came upon all men unto justification for life," Romans 5:18. James wrote, "Every good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning," James 1:17. Christ will not change his duty to save, and destroy human beings. Read Luke 9:51-56.

Long before, Isaiah told us what the salvation work meant which Jesus was to do, he prophesied, "Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. He shall see the travail of his soul and be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify MANY for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore, will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he has poured out his soul unto death, and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of MANY and made intercession for the transgressors," Isaiah 53:10-12. Who is this MANY? Among mankind it is the "many" written about in Matthew 7:18, where it says, "wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in thereat." "Even as the son of man came not to be ministered unto but to minister and to give his life a ransom for MANY," Matthew 20:28.

The death of Christ is for those who die ungodly, not for those dying righteous. "For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly," Romans 5:6. "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust that he might bring us to God, being put to death in his flesh, but quickened by the spirit," I Peter 3:18. "For the love of God constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead," II Corinthians 5:14. So all men died one time in Christ. But to the Hebrews he said, "And it is appointed unto men once to die (not twice, but once), but after this the judgment," Hebrews 9:27. Judgment for whom? The judgment is the duty of the Left Hand of Power, God the Holy Ghost. Of him Jesus said, "If I go not away the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.- Of judgment because the prince of this world is judged," John 16:7-8,11. He has excluded men from judgment through Christ as it is written of him. "He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: FOR THE TRANSGRESSION OF MY PEOPLE was he stricken," Isaiah 53:7. Verses 5-6 of the same chapter says, "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM; and WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED. ALL WE LIKE SHEEP HAVE GONE ASTRAY; we have turned every one to his own way; and THE LORD HATH LAID ON HIM THE INIQUITY OF US ALL". If you believe the scriptures of truth, be comforted in the Comforter of truth. Now if you have ears to hear, preach this Word, Isaiah 40:1-2.

Because this word and duty of salvation of all men was done by Christ, two classes of men are formed, (a) the "many" who lived this life as prodigal sons and (b) those called by God to contend for righteousness. As Jesus put it, "No man can come unto me except it were given to him of my Father," John 6:65 and "All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the son, (John 3:32, 6:44, 12:32, 15:16), but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father save the son, and he to whomsoever the son will reveal him," Matthew 11:27. There is a difference when one is called by men rather than by God, and a difference when one is taught by men rather than by God. Paul suggested two saved classes among men when he wrote concerning the free gift of righteousness, "Even the righteousness of God which is by faith in Jesus Christ (1) unto all and (2) upon all who believe: for there is no difference," Romans 3:22. Paul taught further that the faith in Jesus means Christ's own personal faith in the promise of saving the world given to him by God. Paul is not referring to "any belief" or even your belief of these things, but Christ's only, and he wrote, "For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God," Ephesians 2:8. Christ himself is that gift. This is the promise God gave Jesus when he appointed him to save the world: "Ask of me and I shall give thee the heathen for an inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession," Psalm 2:8. The important thing here is that Jesus trusts, believes, and has faith in this promise. If you still doubt this or do not believe that God can fulfill this promise to Jesus, your unbelief and doubt cannot change it. Paul wrote, "If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful; he cannot deny himself," II Timothy 2:13. John the Baptist believed this promise before Christ died when he prophesied, "Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world." Doubt and unbelief that Christ has finished this work can only come from Satan. If men preach that other men "MIGHT BE, OR WILL BE LOST" with the son of perdition, it is contrary to the faith of Christ written in John 17:12. Such teaching is anti-Christ! The son of perdition is Lucifer, the bottomless pit escapee! Such preaching of doubt is satanic and shows why ministers today are failures and powerless to save. In John 17:4 Jesus prayed to God saying, "I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do". "Behold the Lamb, then, who has taken away the sin of the world!" Do not doubt Jesus! Who has written a book of sin against men if Jesus took our sins away and did away with condemnation of men? II Corinthians 3:7-12. There is a short midget, invisible imitation spirit "liar and father of a lie" who has done so! But YOU better get right with God! Revelation 14:12.

CLASS I: "the MANY" in the "wide gate and broad way"

Isaiah said Christ the righteous servant shall justify "the many" who were seen going in the wide gate and broad way. Christ spoke of this big CLASS I, when he said, "wide is the gate that leads to destruction and many go in thereat, Matthew 7:13. We can say this in another way: "Very big is Satan's mouth and many fall because he deceives them". This class "of many" is made up of ignorant men and deceived men who doubt and reject God because of Satan's big mouth speaking as their consciences. "The many" in class I are justified in Jesus (Isaiah 53:11) as opposed to the "few" believers justified by their personal faith, Matthew 9:12; Galatians 3:11. Paul wrote, "All things are of God who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ and hath given us the ministry of reconciliation; to wit that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation," II Corinthians 5:18-19. There will be NO BOOK OF INIQUITY AGAINST ANY MAN IN JUDGMENT. Only Lucifer, the son of perdition, has many books of iniquity written against him because he has done so much against all men. Of him Isaiah wrote: "Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee and consider thee saying is this the MAN (of sin) that made the earth to tremble, and did shake kingdoms; that made the world as a wilderness; that destroyed the cities thereof, that opened not the house of his prisoners?" Isaiah 14:15-17. Thanks to Jesus this big group of captives in the wide broad way will live, Romans 8:20-21. Because God does not impute iniquity to mankind, we have received the blessing of David, "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered (that is by Christ). Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity and in whose spirit is no guile," Psalm 32:1-2. Any deceit or perverseness in mankind comes from foreign possessing demons. Paul said, "Wherefore I give you to understand that no man speaking by the spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed," I Corinthians 12:3. Any blasphemy in a man in the big "many" class is done by the possessing demon who has power to speak through him. Devils do have this power. Read this: Matthew 16:21-23. This Scripture proves that demons can speak through us like a microphone and imitate our voices. Because God knows this power demons use against us, he taught Jesus in Mark 3:28, "Verily I say unto you, ALL SINS SHALL BE FORGIVEN UNTO the sons of men and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme (Notice: he did not say "can be", or "might be", or "should be", but he said "SHALL BE" to remove any satanic doubt). Mark 3:29 is against the demons who speak in us: "But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness but is in danger of eternal damnation". Doctrines which accuse men of sin and teach that "many" men in CLASS I will be burned in hell are really teaching that Jesus could not save the world as it is written of him. When Jesus said he received a command fron the Father that "he should lose nothing", that has to be wrong. They teach Jesus failed to save all men and that Satan is able to pull the sheep from God's hand because most men are lost. Isaiah and John the Baptist wrote differently. Paul wrote differently also. This is "anti-Christ" teaching in the churches. Read Romans 8:32-39.

CLASS II: "vessels of pleasure", those "called to righteousness"

The SECOND CLASS of men are those called by God who are "classified as believers". "Even us whom he hath called, not the Jews only but also of the gentiles. For the children being not yet born neither having done any good or evil that the purpose of God according to election might stand not of works but of him that calleth," Romans 9:11,24. These are "the few" that find the strait and narrow way only because the Father called them and directed them to Jesus in this life. I am not talking about the calling of men, who invite visitors to join their congregations every Sunday. Men called by men in this way may backslide. But Paul said, "those called by God," of whom Jesus said to the Pharisees, "And the Father Himself which hath sent me hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice, nor seen his shape, John 5:37. No man can come unto me except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." It is written in the prophets, "And they shall all be taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard and hath learned of the Father cometh unto me," John 6:44-45. This calling is done by the voice of God and the teaching is different from the teaching of men. The calling voice of God shook the heavens and earth so that Moses and Israel feared. Elijah heard this same voice as a still small voice. Paul got shook off his horse when it called him. I am not writing about the calling voice of man from behind pulpits, but the calling of God which makes man stand without falling so regularly. This calling stands firm because Jesus said, "My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me." Most men do not receive a calling from God until the day they die. Then out of the body they go as a spirit into heaven; back to the Father who created them in His image. God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. Paul said in Hebrews at that time, "ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the Holy City of the living God, the Heavenly Jerusalem and to an innumerable company of angels. To the general assembly of the church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the judge of all and to the spirits of just men made perfect and to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant and to the blood of sprinkling", Hebrews 12:22-24. Right now I worship God according to the truth which no man taught me but the angels did. When I go to Heaven, I will worship God in the real sense of the spirit. Therefore, this doctrine is different from the doctrine of men.

1) Men have not known what you are reading now for several reasons. God works by time and season and before these days it was not given directly to men. Paul was specially picked to receive knowledge of this doctrine which is why many of the scriptures are from his books. Speaking of himself in II Corinthians 12:45, he said, "I knew such a man, whether in body I cannot tell, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth How that he was caught up to Paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful to utter". Speaking to Timothy, he wrote, "And without controversy great is the mystery of Godliness", I Timothy 3:16. "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished as he hath declared to his servants the prophets", Revelation 10:7. The twelve apostles were not given this timing as Jesus told them. "It is not for you to know time and seasons which the Father hath put in His own power," Acts 1:7. But God taught Paul the mystery of godliness through Christ of whom he said, "Who gave his life a ransom for all to be testified in due time", I Timothy 2:6. The time is now because Jesus saved the good wine for last, Luke 5:39; Revelation 21:5.

2) The second reason men have not known is because God does not tell everybody mysteries. He picks whom He will, when He will, and makes them prophesy as Paul in his day understood the mystery. Paul wrote, "Let every man abide in the calling wherein he is called," I Corinthians 7:20 and John the Baptist said, "a man can receive nothing except it be given unto him from heaven," John 3:27. No man can learn this on his own! God has to give it.

3) The third reason men have not known this is that Christ has not taught them the scriptures, nor the angels from heaven, but men have done it. No man by reading often can understand the scriptures because John speaking of the whole word of God said, "And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the back side, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book and to loose the seals thereof? And NO MAN IN HEAVEN, NOR IN THE EARTH, NEITHER UNDER THE EARTH WAS ABLE TO OPEN THE BOOK, NEITHER TO LOOK THEREON, Revelation 5:1-5. "For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. 11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which [men] deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it [is] sealed: 12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. 13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near [me] with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, [even] a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise [men] shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent [men] shall be hid", Isaiah 29:10. David also said, "O Lord, how great are thy works, and thy thoughts are very deep," Psalm 92:5. Paul, rejoicing in spirit, wrote, "O the depth of the riches of both of the Wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! for who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been His counselor?", Romans 11:33-34. But men are flattered in conceit and think they understand. God promised to teach us His book. Of that time Isaiah prophesied, "And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel," Isaiah 29:18-19. Rejoice now and let the Comforter comfort you in the salvation of the whole world already fixed by Christ. Only believe and doubt nothing!

4) A fourth reason is that Satan has kept ALL UNWORTHY by causing them to reject truth and to backslide. Ministers especially are guilty of passing over certain scriptures to support the doctrine and commandments of men. Of them Jesus said, "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who will give you that which is your own," Luke 16:10-12. Understanding of the scriptures is our true riches which Christ gives to very few. Few men were MADE WORTHY, but Paul was one made worty as the prophets and hand-picked for that purpose, Hebrews 12:22-23 (in this life on earth ).

5) A fifth reason men have not understood is that they man-please for the praise of men. Jesus rebuked this thing which is rampant in denominationalism saying to the people; "How can ye believe, which receive honor one from another, and seek not the honor that cometh from God only," John 5:44. Going further he said, "Ye are they which justify yourselves before man; (church boards and church organizations) but God knoweth your thoughts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God," Luke 16:15. That last scripture went to the church leaders in Christ's time.

6) Finally, not even you can understand this paper unless God the Holy Ghost convinces you of God's free gift of righteousness which is given to all men without respect of persons. If you have understood this, then Revelation 17:8 is no mystery. It says "The beast which thou sawest was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: And they that dwell on the earth SHALL WONDER, WHOSE NAMES WERE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE from the foundation of the world when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is". Understanding would have been easy if only we had believed Jesus when he said none of them is lost but the son of perdition that the scriptures might be fulfilled. That son of perdition is Lucifer himself. Some men do not have to wonder. The son of perdition has taught them that he took plenty men with him, and Jesus was wrong! Paul was wrong too when he said, "I am persuaded"-- Romans 8:38-39.

This paper might have caused some of you to wonder because you are in an eternal situation like the Garden of Eden, and because heaven is yours without a doubt, even as it is for all men, and because we all are created sons of God. Devils are now the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Beware of Satan's mental conversation in your heads. He put these words to my mind: "Why am I struggling? You can still do a little wrong and still go to heaven". I was standing in Eve's shoes, so close to heaven but not just yet. When you stand in Eve's shoes, understand where error is. It is not in the statement, "You shall not surely die". Death is for the body (garment) only, not the spirit, which is the image of God housed in the flesh. James 2:26 says, "the body without the spirit is dead". Error comes in doing a little sin in obeying Satan's voice rather than God's voice. If you find pleasure in sin, you are not renewed in the spirit of love, but serve God for fear of the lake of fire. "Perfect love casts out fear. He that feareth is not made perfect in love because fear hath torment," I John 4:18. If you find pleasure in sin, you remain in bondage of Satan in corruption. Why do I struggle onward knowing all men are saved? I serve God because of love, gratitude, and thankfulness that I am His son and that righteousness is a part of my personality. Sin is hateful to me and no delight. Satan punishes men in sin by sickness, disease, accidents, thefts, wars, sorrows and grief! I do not delight in being subjected to his brand of love!

Beware of jealousy and sorrow because you worked hard and bore the heat of the day. Read Matthew 5:44, 20:8-16. God loves men we thought were His enemy. He blesses all men through whom demons have cursed at Him. He does good to those who hate Him and sent Jesus to pray for those who persecute like Paul did. How?" Overcome evil with good for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head", Romans 12:20-21. That is the only way God will burn up a man! Finally, He sent Jesus to tell us about the prodigal son if the elders are vexed that He will reward all equally! Read Luke 15:24-32. May God bless you!


I remember God through storm and rain in the midst of peril, toil, and pain. Although others do forget, I remember God

The testimony falls in a stony place: A brother backslides in the race. Some are scorched by the sun's wrath, But I remember God

Some men's hearts make up the wayside, a bird's nest built by scorn, by pride. The word sown there is soon devoured while I remember God

The Word falls oft among the thorns, demon-choked while the spirit mourns. The love of God is soon forgotten; I remember God

Hearts are overcharged with surfeiting starved by sin, not benefiting. Worldly cares blow them away; still I remember God

Today they marry and give in marriage. Noah's ark is gone and is not their carriage. Floods from the dragon peril them, But I remember God

Worldly pleasures is Satan's lure for foolish men who hate to endure. Pride of this life is not the cure, And I remember God

Vanity of vanities says the Preacher. They grieve the Spirit of God our Teacher. They fear not God on broadway, But I remember God

A soul cries out for life's healing balm, But demonic madness destroys the calm. The hungry soul is left to die, Yet I remember God

Remember our Creator in the days of youth not in vain worship, but in spirit and truth. The bridegroom comes for virgins wise; We remember God

God's Word falls on good plowed ground; The preacher seeks words acceptable and sound. Study to show yourself approved while I remember God

I remember God in the days of my youth. Every hour I serve him in spirit and truth. He remembers me and has grown me old. Bless us Lord lest we forget
