Alpha to Omega

From ‘A l p h a to O m e g a’, He’s our “all- in- all”
Nothing was left out, so no one, need fall
Nothing was missed, or left to chance
So give praise by song, prayer, and dance
He is our “Pillar of Light”, our Special Friend
Our Teacher, our Healer, our Comfort, Without End
Our Leader, our Strength, our Sage, and our Guide
Our Protection, our Sufficiency, Support gently tied
True Love is shaped, by the heart of this Man
He gave us His Word, so we know of His plan
His Word is His Promise, His Promise His Word
So learn all you can, then share what you’ve heard

Creaks & Cracks

Explaining The True Names, causes creaks & cracks
Like the ‘glass ceiling’ it shatters, what once were ‘facts’
Causes people to change ways, they think & believe
All those years of ‘trust’, become reasons to grieve
The ‘leaders’ they followed, do not really lead
Hungry sheep discover, all they hold is weed
Were looking for Spiritual, Truth – filled meals
Expected to be fed knowledge ~ got empty creels !
Now they’re faced with: a deep wound – chasm
They need to ‘heal’, so must work to fathom
Truth from lie, discern then decide
What they really know, & the correct guide
Creaks & cracks are starting, to spread upset
Letting go the past is scary, but now & yet
Must question & sort thru’, this new found news
Erasing what was, brings up new issues
That sort of makes sense, but not yet fits in
Paths they’ve always trod, & places they’ve be’n
Where are they now, supposed to turn, or go ?
Ease discomfort in what, they understood as ‘I know’
Creaks & cracks have formed, within their very soul
Not quite so complete; can sense a gnawing hole
Whisperings from The Spirit, confirms each True Name
New creaks & cracks keep forming ~ life’s never the same !

E m b r a c e

Hypocrisy abounds, in both town & city
Ugliness festers, can never become pretty
Unbelievers arrive here, & suddenly we must pamper
Immediately they’re ‘entitled, to a Christmas hamper !
Some Santa tells each, they’re deserving girls & boys
So adults get clothes & food, kids get candy & toys
We’re to embrace their alien gods ~ it’s multicultural ‘tolerance’
Those same unbelievers deride us, without reason or chance
Media embraces: sports, pageants, & St. Patty charades
And of course the annual Christmas, & Easter parades
So many groups demanding, their ‘piece of the pie’
Devoid of The Truth ~ schemes futile ‘pie in the sky’
Empty pomp & show ~ just methods for monies made
Persuades consumer spending; little attention is ever paid
To who really is, hiding behind them all
Looks good is what matters; everyone ‘having a ball’
None of this addresses, people in need
Only ones ‘fed’, are the merchants of greed
How much longer, do we let this go on ?
What can we do, to make the chaos gone ?
Why can’t we live, without being forced into such sights ?
When will The Truth be able, to shine its pure Lights ?
Thankfully we can reject all, ostentatious blatent pretend
Our lives are given order, when we embrace: our True Friend !

G r o w U p

Only when you ‘grow up’ spiritually, will you desire the True Name
Once found & accepted ~ nothing, remains the same
Hearing the pagan names: now makes you sad
Deceptive church teachings: now makes you mad
They replaced scriptures ~ believed by nearly all
Twisted Truth into lies, ensuring many will fall
In these last days, false messiah will come
Gathering people into: the wrong kingdom
The True Messiah announces: His Name to a few
Remnant believers ~ those who spiritually grew
Into wanting pure Truth, even if appears ‘strange’
Only clear Truth gives comfort; we strive to re-arrange
Our lives & thoughts; how we live each day
As we ‘grow up’ spiritually: follow only YAH’s Way
Expressed in His Torah ~ yes, those Scriptures of old
Strongly rejecting doctrines: churches packaged & ‘sold’
Kept us “a child”; controlled; taught silly childish things
Until we ‘grow up’ ; desire Truth ~ only YAH’s Torah brings
No, it’s not easy; there is so much to learn
Yet to esteem YAH, we continually yearn
To ‘grow up’ into: spiritual, adult Believer
Privileged to be called, by the “True Receiver”

R e v e a l e d

Why is corrupted Greek OK, but true Hebrew not
When it makes corrupted teachings, appear all we’ve got ?
The True Messiah came, in His Father’s Name
To spread the Truth ~ not seek fortune or fame !
We need to reach others, so they can see
The Messiah’s name is YAHUSHUAH ~ not J.C. !
YAHUSHUAH means: it is YAH Who will save
YAHUAH is in control; is the One Who gave
Us choice of salvation; our life’s eternity
But first we must find: some humility
Only then we’ll seek Scriptures, as they were written
But sadly until then ~ we’ll remain bitten
By poisonous lies, that bring us down
Be tied with chains, which keep us bound
Precious Mashiach breaks those chains, leaving just tatters
It’s only His Word ~ not men’s, which really matters
He proclaims YAHUAH, as His Father, His El
And explains who is: the true Yisra’el
This is your Eternal Life, we’re talking about
So praise YAH ! HalleluYAH ! give your grateful shout
Keep turning to YAH, & His Set-Apart Spirit
Treasure the Truth revealed; Love all that’s in it !

J u s t i f y

Obey or justify ~ that is the problem
Do we follow The Spirit, or follow ‘them’ ?
“He knows my heart, therefore it’s quite OK”
There’s no need to remind, what His Words say
~ Cause they tell ~ not suggest, we do as He asks
Includes certain things; not choices, but tasks
‘Stay away from evil’, means more than ‘don’t look’
Re-naming to smother it; & keep closing His Book
Our pagan – based festivals, are clearly wrongs
Regardless of our ‘sentiment’, our actions, our songs
That He looks on the heart, means we must too
Then decide for sure, what we can & can’t do
All Sunday worships, remain: abominations
Yet esteeming The Sabbath, causes sensations
Many justify Halloween, as ‘harmless and fun’
When it degrades Him, Who’s our Set – Apart One !
Christmas and Easter, produce more justifying
Claimed true religion; really Faith denying
Even Thanksgiving’s not, as appears to be
Plus reduced to food, excesses, give ‘me’
One day we’ll wake up, to what’s wanted of us
Submit to His Will, quietly without fuss
Not deciding for selves, wrong from right
And doing only what’s pleasing, in His sight
We should look to His heart, our actions praise
Instead we justify how much, each person ‘obeys’

Home Schooled

Discovered most of my life ~ I’ve been fooled
Thanks to new knowledge ~ now I’m ‘home-schooled”
Came out of the system, known as the church
Threatened my leaving, as left in the lurch”
My salvation’s removed ! ~ no longer protected
Teachings abandoned, ~ scriptures rejected
The Spirit has left me, I’m on my own
I’ve dismissed G-d; wasted seeds I’ve sown
If I don’t return now, it’ll be too late
I won’t recover, from my awful fate !”
How quickly they judge me, for being led
Away from doctrines, for too long fed
Year after year, their rigid system
Closed “The Door”, instead of opening wisdom
‘Truth will set you free’ ~ if only you know
There’s more than the usual, way to go
To find higher ground, live by YAH’s Will
Allow Set-Apart Spirit, to open, then fill
Me up with Torah, & YAH’s true Way
Allow me to question, feel, or say
How I should live, & why changes I make
Where I should give, & what I can take
Am gaining understanding, deep inside
How to work towards, becoming The Bride
Be true Yisra’el, spiritual Yahudim
No longer blocked, by any church whim

E y e s

If you could look into His eyes: you’d feel what He says
How He leads, protects, & guides, you in to His Ways
You would see the Truth, like a clear window reveals
His Living Word keeps flowing, like our heartfelt appeals
You’d see His eyes smile with Love, twinkle with delight
Whenever people listen, or take a stand for what’s right
Know His Word changes not, will always be the same
I AM is ever the One to call ~ just use His given name
Don’t worry, can’t call you, if each other neither know
Can’t bring together those, who claim “it, isn’t so!”
Refuse to accept, what’s actually been written down
Won’t question odd traditions, yet at Eternal Truths ~ they frown
If only they’d seek out His Word, with a more open mind
They’d know what’s usually taught, is sadly wrong & unkind
Research Truth for yourself; feel stronger, freer, & safe
Enough to leave behind, traditions which gag, scratch, or chafe
You’ll discover when you demand: what, when, & why’s
How lives continually change; your closed become open eyes

A c c e p t

That I’m no longer Christian, may be hard to accept
No, I didn’t have nightmares, during hours I slept
But heeded the call, of Ruach to ‘Come out
of Babylon’ by leaving doctrines, filled with doubt
I’ve embraced the true Name, of the real Messiah
Searched for Truth, that is deeper, and higher
Wider and stronger, than any I’ve seen
Set on a journey, that I’ve never been
Before, spiritually awakening from previous lies
Finally blindness, over my mind and eyes
Is peeling away, to reveal Pure Light
I can see the Power, the Love, the Might
Of our true Mashiach, our Save-Yah, our King
The One Who meets us, the One Who’ll bring
Us into the Kingdom ~ who wouldn’t stand for Him ?
Only YAH has the flame, that’ll never dim
I desire Yah accept me, just as I am
Nurture me, as chosen lamb
Call me His ~ for ever more
Set me apart, into me pour
His Ruach, on a daily basis
So I can see ~ all the faces
Of wisdom, knowledge, Love, & Power
Yah Please accept me ~ this very hour !

Do You Hear A Voice ?

Do you h e a r a voice, c a l l i n g out to you ?
M a y b e i t’s t i m e, f o r y o u t o r e v i e w
If p e r h a p s Y a h, is ‘c a l l i n g you home’
Asking you to check, the seeds you have sown
Maybe you’re a descendent, because of genes
O r a d o p t i o n i s, b y o t h e r m e a n s
M a y b e you’re called, b u t don’t yet know
You h a v e n ‘t figured out, the way to go
None of us know, the number, or a m o u n t
Nor how many will be, there for ‘t h e c o u n t’
Some will be chosen, as Yahushua ‘s ‘sheep’
Others will be ‘goats’, left outside to w e e p
In your heart charity, are you gentle as ‘The Lamb’ ?
Or do you lock horns often, like the batting ram ?
We are to be known, because of our fruits
We are to Love always, not just when it suits
We are to be, the h e a d not the tail
We are to overcome, not be to no avail
You are here now, b u t where do y o u stand ?
Lost in the wilderness, or beside the ‘Right Hand’ ?
You may be a s h e e p, wandering lost, and c o l d
But Yahushua knows you’re missing, H e’l l seek
to s h o w the warmth of the f o l d
