“One Heartbeat Away”

“One Heartbeat Away”

My Lord, for as long as I live
I will bow down before You
For as long as I have breath
I will worship and adore You

For as long as I am on this earth
I will testify of Your faithfulness
You saved me by Your sacrifice
You justified me in righteousness

I think of the future; what will be
And I lift up Your Name in praise
Just a stone’s throw from eternity
Just one heartbeat away, always

Romans 5:1-2 (NASB)
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

“Tomorrow May Be Too Late”

“Tomorrow May Be Too Late”

Anger fans the flame; the hostility intensifies
Momentum builds; it’s only a matter of time
The saints wait expectantly; with anticipation
For their Redeemer; the God of their salvation

Suddenly, He’ll remove them from the stage
Exiting a world of sin, lost in its rebellious rage
What Scripture predicts will be brought to bear
Let this Truth be known; dear reader, be aware

God never changes; His Word remains the same
Seek Him, or you’ll only have yourself to blame
Choose your eternity; don’t gamble on your fate
Heed His call now, for tomorrow may be too late

II Peter 3:9 (NASB)
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

James 4:14 (NASB)
Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.

“An Eye To The Sky”

“An Eye To The Sky”

A moment of trial; then the joy and glory of eternity
A darkened mirror; then the dawning of a new reality
Awfulness of sin; then its ugliness banished from sight
A decaying, mortal coil; perfected in incorruptible light

An earthly mind ; then a clear mind without limitation
A faith hoped for; then with Jesus, Author of Salvation
A weak, frail vessel; then no physical impediments at all
An eye to the sky; then Heaven-bound at trumpet’s call

I Peter 5:10 (NASB) After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.

“Without A Trace”

“Without A Trace”

All around the world, millions will vanish
Without a trace, in the twinkling of an eye
Jesus Christ will come back to claim His own
He will take them to be with Him in the sky

Those dead in Christ will be the first to rise
They will receive bodies new and glorified
After this, those who are alive and remain
Will be changed and join Jesus at His side

A Marriage Supper; a jubilant celebration
Forevermore, the Song of Heaven shall be
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty
King of Kings; Lord of Lords, for eternity

I Corinthians 15:51-52 (NASB)
51 Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed,
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
