The World

What is our greatest challenge

And who is our worthy opponent


To overcome the world

For we are not of the world

We are of the spirit



St. John 16:33

“…but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”


I John 4:4

“…greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”


The End

It is not the end

Of the world

It is the end

Of the illusion

The end of lies


It is the end

Of our faith

The salvation

Of our souls

When the truth

Of who we are

Comes to light


I Peter 1:9

“Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of  your souls.”



Tree of Knowledge

The world he saved

Was this world

The one we have created

The one we live in now


He put the knowledge

Of this world in a tree

The tree of knowledge

Of good and evil


The name of the tree tells us

That to have knowledge

We must know both

Good and evil


And for these two

To grow from

The same seed

Tells us

You cannot

Have one

Without the other


How is it

Good and evil

Grow together

In one tree


Everything we know now

Was in that tree


We are the gods

They wanted to be


Genesis 3:5

“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”


Psalms 82:6

“I have said, Ye are gods…”

Thine Own Self

What you put
Into the world
Will return to you

As one who is sent
Returns to the one
Who sent him

And the one
Who sent him
Will receive
The one who
Returns to him

As his own self


St. John 14:3
“I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”

St. John 17:5
“And now, O’ Father, glorify me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”


Spirit of Truth

There is no secret
To attaining

It is given to all
The Spirit of truth
That which has
Of the truth

It is up to
Each individual
To realize that
And connect with
That Spirit
To save our life

St. John 14:17
“Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you.”

Every story has a hero or heroine

And an adversary

And the story is written

Within a time and a place


And the story line is such that

Said hero or heroine

Must overcome the adversary

To save the world


Or maybe the story is such that

The hero must overcome

The adversary

To save the heroine


The Bible is such a story

The hero is Jesus Christ

And he came to save the world

To set us free from sin

The adversary


David slew Goliath with a stone

Daniel survived the lion’s den

And Christ overcame the world


We are either the hero

Or the adversary


If Christ is with us

Who can be against us


I John 4:5

“…because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
