Twas the Night...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be sharing something with you.

It's something that I thought was interesting.  It was regarding the night before CHRISTmas!

Here is what I saw written and posted on Facebook (FB):

Twas the Night Before Jesus Came
‘Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house 
Not a creature was praying, not one in the house. 
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care 
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed, 
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head. 
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap 
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter, 
I sprang to my feet to see what was The matter. 
Away to the window I flew like a flash 
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear 
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here. 
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray 
I knew in a moment this must be The Day!

The light of His face made me cover my head 
It was Jesus! Returning just like He had said. 
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth 
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His Hand 
Was written the name of every saved man. 
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name; 
When He said "It's not here" My head hung in shame!

The people whose names had been written with love 
He gathered to take to His Father above. 
With those who were ready He rose without a sound 
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late; 
I had waited too long and this sealed my fate. 
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight; 
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear; 
The coming of Jesus is drawing near. 
There's only one life and when comes the last call 
We'll find that the Bible was true after ALL!

How wonderful!

It's speaking about truth!  Biblical truth!

Much like we read in John 17:17, "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth."

Amen!  Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy Word is truth!

Do you read the Bible?

Hopefully, you do.

I do.

In fact, I read the whole Bible, each and every year.

If you don't yet read the Bible, please do so.

Begin reading it, so that you'll feel that you will be able to read the whole Bible before the end of next year.

Of course, please realize you'll be blessed!

Until next time...
