Sealed

God is my strength, my everything, and nothing is more real

He never ceases to bless me with mercy and grace

My heart longs to see Him face to face

God is love, He proves it everyday

As I walk Jesus is with me, guiding the way

The truth is simple, Christ is the Word

To deny it means you haven’t heard

He that hath an ear let him hear

Once you accept Him it all becomes clear

God will show you what you must complete

That you may be able to put satan under your feet

For he will come to deceive all that he can

Every boy and girl, every woman and man

But God has chosen His elect to speak

Waxing them strong as they diligently seek

If God be for us what enemy can stand

Sealed by Him with His mighty hand

 

                            (c) Jarrod Cole

Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. II Corinthians 1:22

In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,  Ephesians 1:13

And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Ephesians 4:30

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Heavenly Foretaste

I hope you like this poem I wrote decades ago. I’ve revised it a little since then. I believe for the better. Still yet, the essence is the same.

 

Heavenly Foretaste

 

My heart is in a far away country, far away land, far away world.

A city which never can be seen with earthly eyes

Its splendor leaves nothing more to be desired

I breathe the air of this land into my soul, and

I know my heart is home.

 

Though now I am bound to this lower world

By the chains of time-day by day I will climb

On silver wings I will soar, till I reach home

Where time shall be no more.

 

I smell the freshness of that new morning

When we arise with the Son

And taste true life just begun

With a hungry hope I await…

To hear the opening of  Heaven’s gate.
