The Rebel

Entering into the most unusual time of history…
A man walked the streets in a cloak of mystery…
Not famous…not even known to his people…
Son of his mother…she knew who he was…
His purpose became known; listen to what he does…
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth…
Not on my watch, hear the truth…
People will come to persecute you, but here this, and do what I do…
Teachers, Professors they think they are right…
They have secret meetings, their hearts black as night…
I’ve come to show you the way, the truth, and the life…
You strain at a Nat and swallow a camel…
I haven’t chosen you; to sit on my panel…
You can’t even see that God has arrived
He’s right in your midst, you won’t survive…
You are tools of dishonor and pride
You who wear robes of evil and who hide
Beneath religion
Lies and deceit
Your words are lifeless, you face defeat…
Quoting the law as if you are the author…
Empty words that do not prosper…
Proverbs and Parables misunderstood…
All your preaching will come to no good…
If you had known my Father God,
You would have known the road I trod…
Is love not hate, both sides of heaven’s gate…
You’re an enemy, enemy of the state…
I see your hearts made of solid steel
The father of lies, I’m here to reveal…
I don’t fit into your wooden box…
For I’m the one you will hang on the cross…
I say love, you say hate,
I say live, you say wait…
I say give and you say take…
I’m the Savior
You don’t believe
Holy Spirit His heart you grieve…
I will not follow your rules you’ll see…
For God in heaven is waiting for me…
I’ll cry it’s finished when all is done…
New life for mine will be finally won.
All your crying won’t save you then…
Son’s of the devil, cast in hell, with him.
I am the Rebel…

Matthew 23New Living Translation (NLT)
Jesus Criticizes the Religious Leaders
Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, “The teachers of religious law and the Pharisees are the official interpreters of the law of Moses. So practice and obey whatever they tell you, but don’t follow their example. For they don’t practice what they teach. They crush people with unbearable religious demands and never lift a finger to ease the burden.
“Everything they do is for show. On their arms they wear extra wide prayer boxes with Scripture verses inside, and they wear robes with extra long tassels. And they love to sit at the head table at banquets and in the seats of honor in the synagogues. They love to receive respectful greetings as they walk in the marketplaces, and to be called ‘Rabbi.’

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
