On Fire for All Things Christ

Short Words of Jerusalem

Your streets are old
Tainted with the hardness of civilizations
Jerusalem,
One day grand and beautiful
The apple of David’s eye
A temple being planned
with perfection for the only true God
a place of worship
and holiness
of grandness and awe
no statue was to be set there
only the Holy of Holys
the presence of the all mighty
to later be trampled by the evils of men
His men
without regard they deceive
those who truly bring a sacrifice to worship
but God’s worship cannot be fooled
He sees the evil being done
But don’t you realize
He is God!
How can you do such things?
in His house!
In His holy presence?
Do you have no respect?
No love?
No reverence?
He is the Creator!!!
You trampled on His love
You trampled on His Son
You wanted to serve
Your own selfish desires
and hardened your heart
to God himself
in the very flesh.

They were wrong in their actions
but refused to face them
Jesus is the light
and He shined His light on them
and exposed their wrong
maybe they didn’t understand
it was too deep to comprehend
they were brought out in the open
and they didn’t like it
they didn’t want others to think
that they didn’t know what they were doing
so they retaliated in anger
against Jesus

He calls Himself King
He calls Himself God
He says He has a Kingdom
and that He will destroy the temple
Blasphemy they say
Arrest Him!
Beat Him!
and kill Him!

The greatest punishment they gave him
39 lashes that no man had ever survived
then death by suffocation
on a Roman cross

But little did they know
that when He died
He went to conquer a greater punishment

to Hell He went
in our place
to fight for us
and buy us into His perfect love

You see
despite our hate for God
despite our trampling
despite our accusations
despite our blasphemy against him
despite our disrespect
and rejection of Him
He still loves us!
And He still wants to give
a chance to choose Him
To love Him

His greatest love
was when God came in the flesh
to live among men
and die on a cross
but that’s not the extent of His love
Come to Him and know there is more

So, Jerusalem was trampled on
first by its own
then by outsiders
for what we do not love and respect
others will not love and respect

If a wife disrespects her husband
then the children follow
in the same manner
But if a wife rightfully shows respect to her husband
then the children follow
in the same manner

So I will show my love for Jerusalem
and respect her like I would my husband
I will show my love for God
and I pray that others will follow
in the same manner
