Long Ago

Long, long ago, before time began

Lived the Spirit of God, and the destiny of man

God pondered and figured, the best course to take

For angel and man, even those who’d forsake

With a twinkle in His eye, the command of His voice

All the angels came forth, with their shouts of rejoice

And that is not all, space was empty and void

So God made a playground, the universe deployed

But time and temper took their great toll

As one that was mighty, turned dark in his soul

The conflict was on, the challenge was clear

God on the one hand, the Devil austere

No one to turn, no one to trust

God made His offer, turn now or be dust

Into fire and brimstone, no future for you

Apart from God, just eternal curfew

The challenge continued, what gives you the right

To make us or break us, with all of your might

A planet was found, to settle the score

A planet with life, plants, animals and more

But Satan tried, as best as he could

And lost all life, on the ground where they stood

God packed it in ice, in a neat little ball

And the planet stood dark, awaiting His call

Soon dark was made light, the world was restored

As angels were wondering, at the work of His sword

Much was familiar, the mammal and tree

But what was this new life, what good would it be

A funny odd thing, two legs and a head

No wings, no claws, t’would be better off dead

God gave it affection, and promised it all

Ah, the key to this conflict, was to make this man fall

So plotting and waiting, and killing the time

Satan worked with deception, to gain this mans crime

And Adam did fall, and the battle was won

Satan took all his bows, against Father, Spirit, and Son

But to his surprise, He had not but begun

His own downfall to Hell, with the promise of a Son

Centuries came, and centuries went

The family of man, over doctrine was sent

Some came to hear, some came to see

The family of God, not for all was to be

Try as he will, Satan pressed his attack

But the line of the Son, he could not beat back

Then one dark winter night, did angels appear

Announcing to all, that Immanuel is here

His back nearly broken, Satan tried from his spite

Like a dragon in rage, to pounce with his might

The infant was Christ, Lord God of all

Satan was finished, just ready to fall

Some teaching, some training, some answered the call

Believe on the Lord, or you too will lose all

Most turned their ear, away from the truth

They struck at His hands, rejected reproof

The trial complete, sins all judged away

Jesus lay down His life, for a short three day stay

Arise all you fools, arise if you’re lost

Arise as He did, after paying the cost

A family to raise, royal bride to take seat

For Christ, He will wait, til her fulness complete

Then sudden as thunder and lightening do sound

He’ll whisk her away, and she won’t be around

The terrors that lay, for those left behind

The trials, and tortures, on all of mankind

Tis blessing from God, that all is cut short

For man could not bear, that final great report

In the darkest of hours, Satan rallies in fear

Christ on His war horse, will in triumph appear

The blast of His power, authority true

Will still all of Satan’s, wickedness brew

A thousand years perfect, a thousand years new

Salvation’s still needed, maturity too

Man’s final end, will certainly come

For all who believe, all others deaths drum

Another beginning, a new heaven and earth

Believe on the Son, it’s your destinies birth

Written by John Neely

From my family to yours, have a safe and very merry Christmas on this 2000th year in our history.

Keep in the word! Isa. 41:10





These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
