Jesus the Promise


Jesus the Promise
Author Unknown

I had on new clothes
New sneakers on my feet.
I was there for class on time
Went to the back and took my seat.

Yeah I’m moving up
I’m already grown.
Soon I’ll be graduating
And out on my own…

I talked to some of my friends
We were all having fun.
Said some things I shouldn’t have said.
Did stuff I shouldn’t have done.

I knew I was different…
I felt God touch my heart
I knew I should set a standard
But then I’d be set apart.

Walking to the bus
I was not looking for strength.
I heard the car tires screeching
But now it’s too late.

I’m standing in this room
And I can see the heavenly gate..
Oh no! I never prayed.
I thought I had time to get it straight!

An angel walked to me
He had a book in his hand.
I knew it was the Book of Life
When would this dream end?
I told him my nameAnd he began to look.
Then he looked at me sadly
And said Your name is not in this book.

Angel this is a dream
No, I can’t be dead!
He closed the book and turned away
He whispered – You cannot proceed ahead.

No…no this can’t be real
Angel, you can’t turn me  Away.
Let me talk to God may be
He’ll let me stay.

He led me to the gate
Jesus came to me.
He did not let me in but said
“Beloved, what is your need?”

Jesus, I cried, please
Don’t cast me away from you.
Tears ran down his face as he said
“You knew what you needed to do.”

Lord please I’m young
I never thought I would die..
I thought I’d have plenty of time…
Death caught me by surprise.

Lord, I went to church
Please, Jesus, I believe.
He said”You would not accept me
My love you would not receive.”
Lord, there were too many hypocrites.
They weren’t being true.
He took a step back and asked
“What does that have to do with you?”

Lord my family claimed to be saved
They weren’t real.
You know.

He said, “I died for you now I have to go.”

I fell to my knees
Crying to Him
“Lord I planned to be real tomorrow.”

I couldn’t make Him understand
I had never felt such sorrow.

Then it hit me hard, I said
“Lord where will I go?”
He looked into my eyes and said
“My child you already know.”

Please, Jesus, I begged
“The place is so hot.”
It seemed to trouble and grieve him
He whispered”DEPART FROM ME

Lord you’re supposed to be love
How can you send me to damnation?
He replied With your mouth you said you loved me
But each day you
Rejected my salvation.

With that in an instant
Day turned into night.

I never knew such torture could be
Now too late, I  know the Bible is right.

If I can tell you anything
Hell has no age.

It is a place of torture
Separated from God!
And full of rage.

You know I thought it was funny a joke
But this one thing is true.
If you never accept Jesus Christ
So please ask Him into your heart.
