My Chains Are Gone
My chief desire in all my writings, is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him beautiful and glorious in the eyes of people; and to promote the increase of repentance, faith, and holiness upon earth - J. C. Ryle (1816-1900)

I See Said The Blind Man

When I see a resentful Black Face,
I see Old Adam’s Darker Race.
When I see a condescending White Face,
I see Old Eve’s Paler Race.

I see said the Blind Man.

When I look Right, there’s Old Adam. Oppressive.
When I look Left, there’s Old Eve. Hysterical.
Neither truly embraced God’s Love Message.
Neither rose above Lucifer’s Earthly Hell.

I see said the Blind Man.

South, I see Old Adam’s kind.
North, is where, Old Eve, I find.
Winter brings Dark and Sickness;
Summer behaves like a Capricious Mistress;
Night and Day reveal how lives can be so different;
yet, side by side they’re both, said God, significant.

I see said the Blind Man.

Masculine Old Adam fathers messed up, most every one.
Feminine Old Eve mothers couldn’t help them, wouldn’t stay:
together, the evil they didn’t want to do, they did;
the good they wanted to do…what? They can’t say.

I see said the Blind Man.

Old Adam and Old Eve – each went their separate way,
offended by the other, each wanted the other to pay;
trust is now lost between them – each one looks away,
or strikes the other – they have nothing more to say.

I see said the Blind Man.

Turning from their First Love, they each wandered, far too far away.
They both wanted a Better Love, but, what kind? They couldn’t say.
New Love found Old Eve. Yet, she didn’t want to play
because Love Your Enemy got in her ambitious way.

I see said the Blind Man.

Old Adam learned of Eve’s New Love and didn’t think it fair.
He, too, wanted a New Love, just not enough to share.
He wanted, yes, but, not enough – now undone
Old Adam lounges in the hot, hot sun
and wiles his time away.

I see said the Blind Man.

Can Divorce be friendly? Or an Ended Friendship bring joy?
Rarely. Each time it hurts us all; it can wholly destroy
us, our children, our future until we’re nothing but a broken toy.

I see said the Blind Man.

Trust In God and naught can destroy your day!
Whomever lives and loves His New & Better Way –
Body of Christ, Bride of Christ, Lovers of Truth 
– here’s what I want to say,
It’s way too late for culture – it’s impossible for humans to make a better way;
there’s only you and me and our willingness to (Holy God) obey.
READ the bible, ponder, PRAY;
talk with God and CONFESS your sins away;
REPENT your old ways,
TRUST in Jesus Christ and, Him, OBEY.

I see said the Blind Man.

Old Adam and Old Eve,
look beyond this earth – the temporal,
historic or cultural;
current events or political gain;
leave behind your anger, envy,
greed or need for power. Most of all,
leave behind your resentment or cruel disdain.
Remember, Masculine & FeminineAdam & Eve,
Black & White, you BOTH have much to explain.

I see said the Blind Man.

Look up! See only Jesus Christ bleeding on Cross,
God, Who died for all His Adams, for all His Eves;
our Risen Savior, Who desires not one single loss.

I see said the Blind Man.

GOD the CREATOR and SAVIOR of all, KING of kings,
returns to settle the Last Great Battle in this 6000 years War:
when a lifetime of service, suffering and sacrifice
shall increase our joy, bring rewards, and so much more.

I see said the Blind Man.

Ah, no you don’t, Blind Man, you don’t see it all.
