THE DESTINY OF MAN
SATAN THE DEVIL INVENTED THE LIE
Listen, dear friends, and I'll tell you a lie,
"The soul is immortal, and cannot die."
Now this is the way that the lie was begun,
That's believed by most men that lives under the sun.
In Eden God planted a garden fair,
And there He placed the first human pair.
To dress it and keep it and make it their home,
Throughout the whole land they had privilege to roam.
In the midst of the Garden of Eden stood,
The Tree of the Knowledge of Evil and Good.
God said, "If you eatest of this certain tree,
Surely your lives I'll require of thee."
But Satan, that Serpent, was lurking there,
Intent on deceiving the first human pair.
"Thou shalt not surely die", Said the Father of Lies,
"Eat of the tree; It shall make thee wise."
So they ate of the tree and Jehovah said,
'By the sweat of thy face, shalt thou eat thy bread.'
"Thistles and thorns shall the earth yield for thee,
Because thou didst eat of that certain tree.”
But to Satan The Serpent, Jehovah Said,
The Seed of the Woman shall crush thy head.
Thus also the doom of the Father of lies,
Was first made known in Paradise.
Nine hundred and thirty were the years of his life,
Who disobeyed God just to please his dear Wife.
But a thousand years is to God but a day,
So God in that day Adams life took away.
A precious God gave to man through old faithful Abraham.
Saying, 'tho the whole world is by Satan oppressed,
Thru thee and thy seed shall all Nations be blessed.'
The whole human race is under the curse;
It's the sentence of death but nothing worse.
In the fulness of time God sent His dear Son,
To redeem the whole world from the wicked one.
He who was rich for Our sakes became poor,
That we thru His blood, might have life evermore.
Men scorned and reviled Him, and put Him to shame,
But now He has honor O'er every name.
He is calling a people to be His dear Wife,
And they with the Lord to the world will give life.
These are already wearing their White Wedding Dress,
Called the robe of Christ's righteousness.
We must keep the robe free from all wrinkle or stain,
Thru the merit of the blood, Of the Lamb that was slain.
Men's hearts are fast failing for dread and for fear,
Of the great time of trouble that soon will be here.
Thruout the whole World are the Nation's distressed,
They know not that soon shall all nations be Blessed.
For soon the desire of all nations shall come,
They shall learn war no more, for God's will shall be done.
When the very last one of the Bride has been sealed,
Then God's Holy arm shall to all be revealed.
The glory of God shall fill the whole earth,
Sorrow and sighing shall give place to mirth.
No evil, no sickness, no sin shall be found,
For a thousand years shall Satan be bound.
But when Christ's reign o'er the world has ceased.
Then old Satan, shall be released.
He shall try everyone to determine if they shall be loyal to God, or
Those who are loyal to their Father in Heaven,
Shall eternal life on this planet be given.
But if for their leader they Satan shall choose,
Surely forever they their life rights shall lose.
Yes, Satan and all those against God rebel,
Shall be turned into the 'Bible Hell".
Thanks be to God that we have learned,
That hell's not a place where people are burned.
For God is to be loving and kind and just,
To torture his creatures that He made of the dust.
But all of the wicked will God destroy,
And the righteous Eternal life shall enjoy.
