Time to Move to Rapture Forums

Brothers and Sisters,

Rapture Ready's Bulletin Board is no longer maintained. Members have been moving to Rapture Forum's Bulletin Board Apparently unrepairable bugs in our software after a needed upgrade led to the decision to close Rapture Ready and to encourage members to continue fellowship at Rapture Forums. You'll find an active and vibrant Bulletin Board at Rapture Forums. See you there!

    The Battle

    Jesus is my Savior
    He saved me from my sins
    He caused my eyes to open
    So now my race begins

    A battle ever rages
    The heat is most intense
    My flesh desires the mastery
    The Lord is my defense

    Two natures locked in battle
    Not seen by others sight
    My flesh desires the wicked
    My spirit loves the Light

    The battle ever rages
    When living for my King
    The world around me darkens
    Oh Lord, to you I cling

    I must obey my Master
    I know my love is true
    Yet what I do for Him
    Falls short of what Heís due

    Fear is always present
    When God I fail to see
    My foe would see me crippled
    Oh Lord, give faith to me

    Paul has said it true
    O wretched man am I
    The things I wish to do
    Are not for which I vie

    My deeds are often not
    What God would have me do
    Please Lord! Oh Lord forgive me
    I yearn to follow you

    I see the lost around me
    I sorrow at their fate
    My flesh desires to leave them
    Yet I must set them straight

    I sense the Spirit mold me
    He gives the need to sow
    To love, to cry, to pray
    For those I do not know

    Yet while the Spirit moves me
    In submission to the Word
    My flesh is fighting harder
    And slothfulness is stirred

    Conviction overtakes me
    Reveals to me my plight
    I turn to God in sorrow
    And He restores my light

    So battle ever rages
    The race is well begun
    I know Iíve won the victíry
    Through Jesus Christ the Son

    Faithful God of truth
    Eternal God of love
    Sanctify me wholly
    And guide me from above

    I watch and wait for Jesus
    He soon will call His bride
    redeemed will raise immortal
    forever with Him abide

    Please take my life in service
    I wish to love you most
    A battle but a moment
    Abiding joy utmost!

    John 10:27-30 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Fatherís hand. I and the Father are one.
