Jesus Is On The Main Line? Actually No!

Is Jesus really on the main line? Actually, No!
What do you mean, well, the bible tells me so,
John 14: 13-14,15: 16 & 16: 23-24 it’s the same,
Jesus tells us to, “Ask the Father in My Name.”

It certainly sounds good when the choir sings,
Yes! And without a doubt huge smiles it brings,
However, this isn’t scripture it’s only tradition,
A reason many followers fail in their mission.

There is a plethora of misinterpretations because,
Hosea 4: 6, “my people are destroyed for lack of? ”
One reason many churches have financial heresy?
Well! Generation to generation against prosperity.

Cold winter months you need warm to combat chills,
Air conditioning in summer heat, who pays the bills,
Uh why are so many struggling in Jesus’ name still?
Others are on top; some are at the bottom of the hill.

Romans 5: 17, “God’s provision of grace & the gift,
Receive provision to reign in life by righteousness, ”
By trespass of the one man Adam, death reigned, ”
And two word instances where Jesus said, “I came.”

We know the main reason is to seek & save the lost,
John 10: 10’s the other for abundance not a coin toss,
You don’t flip heads or tails to see if it will actually be,
You either do or do not have faith in bible prosperity.

Deuteronomy 29: 9, “so you may prosper in all you do, ”
Deuteronomy 30: 9, “The lord will again delight in you, ”
Joshua 1: 6-8, Psalms 1: 3, “success, prosper, maturity, ”
Several samples of God’s promise what better security?

Romans 3: 3, “Their lack of faith, unbelief will not nullify, ”
No matter how bad it looks stand on the word and why?
Romans 3: 4, “Let God be found true & every man a liar, ”
Why let those sitting low determine you can’t go higher?

The song, “Main Line” itself has a very nice catchy tune,
Yet, don’t be surprised when changes don’t come soon,
As a matter of fact, you will never experience the bliss,
“You have not because you ask not or you ask amiss.”

Always remember that the word is not second it’s first,
Isaiah 5: 13, (KJV) “their multitude dried up with thirst, ”
While the ocean is abundant water you will still drown,
Its salt has the same deadly effect as the wrong sound.

No doubt that Jesus dwells within but here is the deal,
For you will never get results until you do what is real,
The prayer closet or on your knees in seeking change,
From bible scripture, “Ask The Father in Jesus’ Name.”

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
