Lines of Heaven or Lies of Hell

“Go, tell Jeroboam… thou hast not been as My servant David… for thou hast gone and made thee other gods... and hast cast Me behind thy back” (1 Kings 4:7-9).  “Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god…  The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance… The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage” (Psalm 16:4-6).  “Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more, then, the hearts of the children of men?” (Proverbs 15:11).  “They received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie” (2 Thessalonians 2:10,11). 

For all mankind there is a choice
Regarding Jesus Christ the Lord: 
To either choose to heed His voice
Or turn and let Him be ignored.  

Their sorrows shall be multiplied
Who turn their backs on Jesus Christ,
Who for our sins was crucified,
And for our souls was sacrificed. 

How pleasant, then, are heaven’s lines,
The heritage our Savior gives,
The lot which Christ Himself defines
Eternally because He lives.   

The Lord observes the hearts of men;
He sees our sinful inclination. 
What more could Christ have offered then? 
He gave HIMSELF for our salvation!

The choices now are very plain: 
To love the truth or have confusion. 
Refusing Christ for sinners slain
Is to embrace a strong delusion. 

It’s heaven’s lines of endless grace
Or lies of hell men choose instead. 
The consequences hearts shall face
Are in the ages yet ahead. 

Lord, on the cross You fought our strife
To give us an alternative.
You set before us death and life,
That we might choose to look and live.

Receive our thanks, our Lord and Savior,
For truth exposing lies of hell,
For lines of heaven’s saving favor,
And for the Gospel that we tell.
