Pyramid

You are standing on the hard work
and loyalty of many
the least you can do is look down
to see how their backs
making you stand tall
How their sweat waters the floor
keeping you blooming
their sleepless night
keeping you from tripping
their knees bent to the floor
and hands grazed by the stones
the least you can do is look down
and appreciate them all
You are at the top of the pyramid
because many hands, shoulders and backs
support you

This is Your earth

You knew what You were doing when You walked through the darkness
When you decreed let there be light
to the earth’s last detail nothing came as a surprise
You perfectly planned everything out
but things haven’t been great
I know you see it
For He who formed the eyes does He not see
I know You hear our cry
Our cry for you to delay no longer
He who formed the ears hears

The turn out of things may surprise us
It may leave us mouth open
but I know You knew this would be the turn out of events
You put us in a bit of control  but you are still in charge
That is the best thing ever
No not us being in charge because it’s obvious we need You
Lest we self destruct
The best thing is you are still in control
We see that it isn’t so easy
So easy ? Now I’m downplaying it
Things aren’t easy at all
no matter how hard we try to work alone
or pretend that we got this
We exalt the wisdom You put there
Singing our praises when things go as we plan
Forgetting that You already ordained it to be so before it happens

All things work together for good
the expectations of the righteous shall not be cut off
Though we are in pain
yet we would rejoice
No, not in the absence of troubles
Not in the absence of the confusion that comes with uncertainties
but in all these
We are more than conquerors
We do not appreciate peace when there is calmness
but we appreciate peace in the storm
You are the prince of peace
Teach our minds to seek You
and our hearts not to give up

This is Your earth so let me trust in You
for You are an everlasting rock
It is better to take refuge
To take refuge In Him whose very voice is the thunder
Whose countenance is like the sun
The Sun of the sun
Under Your shadow I would abide
Whose breath is the very wind
It is better to take refuge in Him
Whose permanence is the reason for my existence
Who is not here today gone tomorrow like man
Beautiful flower we are, as green as that grass
but we would be blown away
After much noise and life struggles
Silence is the reward and history we become
So trust Him who is History , the Present and  the Years to come
Ancient of days

This is Your earth
So nothing surprises You
For you do everything according to the counsel of Your will
You place a king and pull down one
His very heart is in Your hands
The high and haughty You bring low
and the humble You uplift
If you let wickedness go on
You have a purpose
For when righteousness is revealed
There is no doubt or difficulty spotting the difference
Even the darkness is not dark to You

Under your everlasting arms I’d rest
Under your pinions I’d take refuge
since you are in control of every detail
then in Your arms is where I want to be
I know though our flesh waste away
Our soul is being nourished in and by You
Do not let me wonder away from your presence
Do not let me trust in your earth and all that is in it
Let me not be lost in its beauty and riches
but forever remember its temporariness
For in a twinkle of an eye it flies away
Let me forever till eternity trust the creator and owner of the earth
In your sovereignty would I rejoice
There is hope for my times are in the Lord’s hands
This is Your earth

NO VISA DEPENDANTS

This has been on my mind since the day a work colleague told me she was her husbands dependant in regards to Visa. She was allowed into the country because her husband had his visa to study in the uk. She could apply on the basis of her husband being in the uk and i’m sure it’s the case for any other country.However this is not the case for entry into eternal comfort with lord Jesus Christ in heaven when the last trump sounds.
One can’t gain entry on the basis of their spouse ,sibling or family member. Your “visa” is for you ,in this case, what you have done in the body through out your life time not what your mum did or what your siblings did for only Christ can stand in the gap for one and he did for those who believe so as we stand to be “interviewed”, Jesus the Christ who is both the Judge and the advocate of those who have accepted him therefore he let’s us in.He is the only one that can be our visa dependant so by his presence we strive to enter into his courts (country) for eternity by grace .All entry depends on him. Your parents or friends who truly believe in Jesus the Christ are his dependants and so you can’t depend on a dependant on the final day of reckoning where our lives would be played out .

In Ezikel 14- a chapter on idolatry,as the Lord spoke to ezikel warning the people to rid themselves of the idols in their heart, he mentioned three names; JOB, Daniel and noah and emphasised thrice that even if men like this were in the city their righteousness would be counted for them alone not their sons and daughters inclusive.See below :

Ezikel 14 vs 14-19

14 even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness, declares the Lord God.

15 “If I cause wild beasts to pass through the land, and they ravage it, and it be made desolate, so that no one may pass through because of the beasts,

16 even if these three men were in it, as I live, declares the Lord God, they would deliver neither sons nor daughters. They alone would be delivered, but the land would be desolate.

17 “Or if I bring a sword upon that land and say, Let a sword pass through the land, and I cut off from it man and beast, 18 though these three men were in it, as I live, declares the Lord God, they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they alone would be delivered.

19 “Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out my wrath upon it with blood, to cut off from it man and beast, 20 even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, declares the Lord God, they would deliver neither son nor daughter. They would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness.

Ezekiel 18 also emphasised the fact that a Father’s sin would not be counted on his son and vice versa.Jesus the Christ discredited the proverb that had been going on for a while – and made it clear that all soul were his that the righteousness of the son would be upon him and not his father and vice versa .

Ezikel 18 vs 2 -4, 19 &20.
The word of the Lord came to me:  “What do you[a] mean by repeating this proverb concerning the land of Israel, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge’? 3 As I live, declares the Lord God, this proverb shall no more be used by you in Israel. 4 Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine: the soul who sins shall die.

19 “Yet you say, ‘Why should not the son suffer for the iniquity of the father?’ When the son has done what is just and right, and has been careful to observe all my statutes, he shall surely live. 20 The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.

In 2corinthians 5vs 10-For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.

Also in Job 34 vs 11-For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways ,and Romans 2 vs 6He will render to each one according to his works
See it says in the body.
No matter how closely knitted you are on earth to your spouse,friend,sibling,parent or twin (I must add though born on the same day,completely different individuals .seconds apart matter),everyone stands alone on judgement day !

There are no Visa Dependants!

God help us to live for Him.
