Lack of Knowledge


God spoke to His people Israel, His purpose for them in His Will,
Saying they would be destroyed, by Judgment He couldn’t avoid,
This from their lack of knowledge, not elementary or even college,
But the knowledge of their Lord, and that His Will wasn’t implored.

Going on as they so desired, dismissing all that God had inspired,
Through each Priest and Prophet, simply living life as they saw fit.
Departing from The Lord’s Plan, following not God, to follow man.
They believed they knew the Lord, but by them, Truth was ignored.

Seeking not The Lord’s face, God’s chosen nation fell from Grace,
Dispersed from the Promised Land, by God’s Holy Uplifted Hand.
God then moved with Salvation, into each and every gentile nation,
Extending Hope of Everlasting Life, through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Now grafted in with the nation Israel, is every true believing Gentile,
To receive the same promises, which to Israel, the Lord God gives.
This if they avoid that place, where they would ignore God’s Grace,
If they also become deceived, to follow what men have conceived.

The Lord has only one Salvation, found in His Inspired Revelation,
For all men on the earth to come, unto the Father through His Son,
To receive a place up in Paradise, through the Savior Jesus Christ,
For every Jew and Gentile man, who embraces God’s Eternal Plan.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
