Making Merry with the Devil

Deception reporting for duty
Greetings most vile and evil one

I have a grand report of success
As I strive to blind men to the realities of hell

I start with their natural sinful tendency
Encourage them to focus on self

Soon they forget about God and that one day
They will give an account to Him

I direct their thoughts
“Eat, drink and be merry”

Blind them to the warning
“For tomorrow you will die”

Before long the devil is innocuous
Someone to be laughed at and make merry with

Nothing but a comical character
Wearing red tights and carrying a pitch fork

The inescapable realities of judgment fade away
Hell is now seen as place of eternal partying with friends

They will never know until it’s too late
The painful, eternal reality of hell

Ain't that the truth. One day, they will see, who the devil really is. It is definitely a horrible idea to eat, drink, and be merry with the devil.

In Christ,
Joshua :)

Joshua...I can hardly bear the thought of it. So many people are blinded and deceived. Willing and willfully rejecting God. The thing of it is...they don't truly see whom they have aligned themselves with and what the consequences will be.

You are a mighty warrior for Christ Joshua. Stand strong for Him.
