Are They Like Heathens ?

Updated on April 5, 2013

Are They Like Heathens ?

They have rings in their cheek,rings that look so dumb,

There are rings in their tummy,and rings in their thumb.

They're giving Satan a leash through a ring in the nose,

And he will pull them in his steps wherever he goes.


Who ever thought our offspring could be so unwise

To view life on earth as through the devil's eyes?

It seems that the whole world is now full of disgrace,

They mock at morality and they laugh in God's Face.


Jesus ,can we do anything to let them know we care,

Is it too late for all of them now in such dark despair?

Don't they know God can see each and every one,

Don't they know God's eyes view all they have done?


Can you just picture The Lord with a ring in His Face?

The Jesus that we know would be so out of place .

Are they like the heathen with all of their body paint?

Could anyone tell they could someday be a saint?


Could any of you say this could be me this very day

If someone had not taken time to teach you to pray.

We never know if kind words would touch a needy heart.

We never know when looking if a life is falling apart.


The heathen isn't God's but they could be if they tried,

They don't seem to care for Jesus that for us He died.

OhGod, stir their hearts and remove all sin and hate,

Somehow bring them now to Jesus before it is too late!

As you can see this was written quite a few

years ago and I never felt it was time to

put it on here, every once in a while I would

come across it and just lay it aside ,but the

Lord had not forgotten it ,I guess He thinks

now is the time , This was not written for

anybody in particular it was just one of

these things that come in your mind when

you read this don't think I had anyone in

mind back then,I didn't, but The Lord

knew what would be happening in the

near future.

      Hi Laurie, God always has a reason though we may not know what it is for a long while.Sometimes we just have to be patient till the right time comes.I never thought I would be sending poems all over to people , I guess God surprises us sometimes , you probably have had some of those surprises.too.Love.Clara

      Hi Karen, I wasn't sure if the comment section was going to come back on tonight I am not very good at talking to people about God but if I get a pen in my hand I never seem to shut up,I guess God can use all people , we all aren't orators but just do the best we can . Thanks for your comment. I got a thing from Hub page today telling me I had been on the web for 3 years now. I haven't been putting poems on that long but I did sign up and I wasn't sure about it ,I went to another web site with poems for awhile , but I got off of there and came here. I am glad I did . the poems go a lot farther away than the other one did.love,Clara

      Hi Karen, I wasn't sure if the comment section was going to come back on one , I am not very good about talking to people about God, I do all right one on one but anymore than that and I am no good , but if I get a pen in my hand I never seem to shut up.I guess God can use all o f us no matter how we are. when I woke up at night at with Heathen in my head I knew it was time to get this on here,. I just hope to touch some young hearts but it seems to be hard to get to them now,just keep trying , maybe it will get to some of them . Thanks for your comment.love, Clara

      Hi Kiss, How are you? I was thinking about you the other day. I hope you and your family are all right.It is good to hear from you .I will keep on writing until God stops me . this poem was written in 1998 and I just laid it back ,somehow it didn't seem to be the right time to put it on. I was in bed the other night and it came to me Heathens and I knew it was the time now.I am glad that I had dated it , if not some people might think it was for them but it wasn't , I guess God just gave it to me then so I would have it later.Keep in touch ,Kiss. Love ,Clara

      Hi Laurie,

      Yes, they do a lot of mocking and someday they will pay for all of those things unless they ask Jesus to forgive them and commit their life to Him ,Right now I guess they think they are having too much fun to give it all up , I could never understand how all that drinking and wild parties could be called fun , I could never understand because I was never into that. You don't need all of that to have a good time, my friend ,Tessie and I didn't do those things but we had a lot of fun . love,Clara

      Hello Clara,

      God's agenda for us is very simple. Come into intimate relationship with him (that is, get to know Him, have a personal relationship) and Take the gospel, the good news out to others.

      Everything else is of Satan and His temptations are way too many to mention.

      Thank you for finally making this poem publicly. As you said, it happens in God's time. Amen

      yep they dont believe, and are ungrateful

      God says "if you have lots I will give you more, if you have none I will take from you even what you already have"

      Poor God, I feel sorry for all those mockers, how can anyone mock God after what he did and created them all with arms/legs/feet/hands and laugh at others. I have had people do things to me and they dont know me from a hole in the ground.

      Laurie

      God bless you

      Hello Rasta 1 ,it's good to hear from you . Satan has so many things going on for the young people now that they don't have time to think about Jesus .When they start to think about Him it may be too late. The courts have taken God out of their lives and put Satan in ,they say 86 % of people believe in God and 14% don't so why have they been allowed to take God out of everything? It is very hard to understand. But Satan's time is coming to get his just due . Thank God ,he won't win. the best to you ,Rasta , from Clara

      Hello Laurie. I just put this on a short time ago, didn't know if anyone had read it yet.God knows all o f our past and our future ,too. The bad part of it is people don't seem to believe that anymore. They don't believe and they won't listen to us .so many lost souls that will be forever lost unless they change their ways now while there is still time to go to the Lord.Love, Clara

      Its so neat the way God knows all even years ago, wow

      Trust me this is for someone or some people and I know. Time is here and the world is going to know very soon.

      This sentence stands out for me the most

      Is it too late for all of them now in such dark despair?

      God has given me the number 9 and the words "its time" over and over along with visions for myself and sounded the trumpet in my dream

      thanks Clara

      God is a bit angered right now

      Have a good night

      Laurie

      I totally understand your point. This information provided can easily be discerned by mature Christians. I do not believe the (my) younger generation will understand. I am glad you put it out there.
