Blaspheme NOT The Lord's Name!

 

JESUS: say it with hushed reverence and love,

Pause, then listen to His sainted speech from above,

For if you neither seek His advocate or approval,

Then from His saving grace, will you not, perhaps stumble and fall?

 

Today: crude cheats curse and blaspheme.

And always HIS sacred saving name!

And upon them one day will rain down, poison and flame,

For because of past curses will they bear pain, however crude, however unwelcome.

 

Yet the power of evil can materialise in many a form,

This is it's meaning, this sadly is its doomed norm!   

 

Today open blasphemy is rampant rather like bacteria.

 

In television, film, the written word always it seems the name of the Son of God is cursed and said with such hatred. However you will never hear used in an offensive manner the name of Allah, Buddha, Kali, Sitting Bull, Vishnu, Shiva, Brahma, Jack Daniels or Elvis (yes there both someone's-fix aren't they?) But you won't hear any of these used as a curse word, will you?

 

I also loathe the use of the word "Hell," you know we've been to Hell and back etc and the other personal use of "Crucified," you know he's been crucified for giving his views etc.

 

But remember friends the good news is that:

 

"At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in earth and things under the earth" (Philippians 2:10)

 

Almost wants to make you smile at their future discomfort doesn't it?
