Where does misfortune come from?

Does God cause misfortune
To befall us?
Does it come from heaven
Or it comes from hell?
Why doesn’t God prevent
God people from suffering?
And why doesn’t God make everybody rich,
And healthy and happy?
Why? But why?
Why does God create wicked people?
And put them in the world?
These questions we have heard
Over and over;
Now, let wisdom speak;
A free will, God has given all;
If you can’t understand,
Believe!
It’s not every puzzle
You can understand;
Life is full of mystery,
And we must take it
As it is;
Do not reap
From another’s farm
That is to say,
Do not reap,
What belongs to another;
Do not claim,
What is not yours;
Do not take,
What you did not keep;
It is not yours;
So why take except
When you have not been
Authorized to do so?
You have no right to take?
Many Fall into
This trap;
They take what is not theirs;
And that brings curses
On them and their progeny.
In this world,
Always remember,
Nothing goes for nothing;
You are rewarded
For every good that you do;
And punished
For every crime you commit.
It is an unchanging law
Of the universe.
If you obey God,
God listens to your prayer,
And grants your wish;
If you obey the devil,
That is a pledge of loyalty;
The devil accepts it
And gives you
Part of what is precious
To him – evil;
His kingdom is full of evil.
When evil happens,
It is not God who allows it,
It is we who have chosen it;
When we pay allegiance
To the devil;
He rewards us with evil;
God rewards with good;
The devil rewards with evil.
Misfortune comes from hell;
Fortune comes from heaven.
Does that answer your question?

Where our problem lies

Where does our problem lie?
Where does the devil dwell?
Are Christians in a trance?
The world is being torn to pieces;
Under our watchful eyes;
Or are we saying we do not see?
Who does not see the fire
That hell is spitting out
On the world?
Who is not aware
Of the blazing flames?
The world is rife with produce
From the devil’s farm;
Aren’t our leaders worse today
Than the tyrants of old?
Human slaughter houses
Have geometrically multiplied;
Humans are massacred like cattle
Or buried alive;
Neighbours at war,
Fighting and killing,
And dumping neighbours in pits
Dug behind their homes;
Who talks?
Don’t we hear
And see these atrocities?
Can we pretend not to see?
Aren’t we authoring them?
Where is the Devil’s dwelling place?
Our hearts.
Who feeds and nurtures him?
Hypocrisy is devouring
The world.
Shall we stop him?
Or shall we let him go on
Till our human race is wiped off?
We preach virtue
And practice vice.
That’s where the problem lies.
Can’t we stick to the right,
And shun the wrong?
That is our challenge;
To cast pride and greed
Into a bottomless pit;
To keep falling
Never to walk the earth again.

How best friends became worst enemies

Do you know some best friends
Who have become the worst enemies?
And do you know how it happened?
They opened the door of their
Hearts, leading to their relationship;
And allowed the devil to come in;
He came in and took full control;
With his powerful weapons of desire,
Greed, lust, passion and temptation;
He pulled them down;
They could not withstand his force;
So headlong they crashed landed;
Today, they are not best friends
But worst enemies.
You have to guard your heart;
Lock the door and safely keep the keys;
The devil is always at work;
Searching for good to turn to bad;
Looking for light to transform
Into darkness;
Hunting for best friends to make enemies;
That is how those best friends
Became the worst enemies.

At this train station

At the train station
Of life,
There are two trains
Ready to go;
God-train,
And Satan-train;
God-train looks
So ordinary;
Satan-train looks modern
And sophisticated;
In which train
Would you like to travel?
Feel free
To choose your train.
But know what lies
Ahead
Of the choice you make.
One transports good people;
The other, evil people.

Crush him hands down

The devil is powerful;
The devil is cunning;
The devil is persistent;
The devil is in your bedroom;
The devil is in your car;
The devil is in your living room;
The devil is in your office;
The devil is everywhere;
The devil is out for you;
And stands a good chance of
Crushing you;
Yet, you can defeat the devil;
And to do that, you have
One powerful weapon – prayer;
With prayer, you will send
The devil on the run;
With prayer, you will crush
The devil hands down.
With prayer, you will give
The devil hard times;
And that is what you must do.
Give him hard times;
Crush him, hands down.

The devil wants victory

Don’t be surprised the devil has supporters;
Don’t you see he has a whole kingdom?
Without evil people he would have no kingdom;
And don’t expect the devil to give up the fight
To conquer the world;
His devilish ambition is unbounded;
He wants victory;
He wants to win the race;
To defeat good;
And make evil reign in the world;
If you fold your arms,
The devil and his soldiers will crush you;
Take nothing for granted;
Do not let the devil win by forfeiture;
Don’t be absent from the boxing ring.
