The Spirit of the Age

The Spirit of the Age


The Spirit of the age

Creeps, comes stage by stage

What was once a taboo

Becomes the thing to do.


It’s the ‘course of the is world.’

Coming to choke the Word

In those married to the world

Who have abandoned what they heard.



We call it advancement

Even development.

We are gently lulled to sleep,

Rather than rise up and weep.


People pressured into submission

Unlike the three Hebrew men.

Saints seared into compromise,

Cornered and cocooned to their demise.


They call it independence

‘No God interference.’

They call it ‘Do as you please.’

‘Follow the broad road of ease.’


But God has a remnant

Who will remain adamant

Indignant and unrelenting

In the storm and fire, Standing.

Ephesians 2: By Grace Through Faith

1     And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,

2     in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

3     among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

4     But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,

5     even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

6     and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

7     that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

8     For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,

9     not of works, lest anyone should boast.

10   For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Eph2:1-10

12   There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Prov14:12
