Behold, I am one with a teachable Spirit;
so listen if you can.
I've not been taught by your schools,
or merely just by man!
I've been taught in the wilderness...
High places... And low,
So listen to wisdom,
and from one who knows.
Of organized religion,
I'll have no part,
I won't be put in your mold
that grows in the dark!
In all your organizing
you've tried to dress me,
You've forgotten to pull
the mote from your eye,
so you could see!
You don't know the simple...
that how I dress
or comb my hair.
Is not the "Proof" if the Spirit dwells there!
You've also ask me to "Go with the flow!"
I'll be like Shadrack, Meshack,
Oh yes the scribes and Pharisees love
the uppermost seats,
That's not very wise...
Christ said they were deceived!
I find wisdom is to be
a fool for my Lord...
And to dance in my joy,
all over your floor!
But there is something
I'd like you to know
With all your Carnal wisdom.
You put on a good show!
It's a shame your not pleased with me
in your self-righteousness!
But it's the Lord who humbles...
and He gave me my dress!!!
To the UNLEARNED
I'm sure I look Bizarre,
And to say all these things
you think I've gone TOO FAR!
Do you know what the Pharisees said
when they praised with palm leaves?
"MASTER, STOP THEM, THEIR LOOKING LIKE FREAKS!"
The Lord didn't say,
"Get rid of the palms...
hold down your shouts"
No, not at all, He said,
"If they stop, the rocks will cry out!"
Yes the Lord did some crazy things!
He rode in on a jackass, and confronted their kings!
He also rubbed spit in the blind man's eyes,
It grossed out some, but it gave the man sight!!!!
Yes organized religion
is a pretty thing to look at,
With all the fine clothes,
the bows, and the hats!
But in my simpleness I've found
tongues with cunning words,
And I know in the End
they'll get what they deserve!!
The Lord says to the Arrogant...
Maybe you should humble yourself
and dress like a clown.
Because of your pride you've become a joke to me,
You even try to kill those that I've set free!
I am the Lord...I didn't die for your dress code!
You've forgotten the Potter...and it is I who will mold!
One other thing where your blind and can't see,
You've said My Spirit won't live in something unclean
Never assume and lift yourself up,
And then try to judge "Where" My Spirit will dwell!
My Spirit will dwell with those
that are yielded to Me,
And let me clean up "First"
the things people can't see!
If in this short vapor of time
my wisdom looks foolish to you?
You'd better be careful...
the scribes said I was Beelzebub too!
I hope YOU have a teachable Spirit,
and you've listened to Me!
That you're a respecter of persons,
which is sin...don't you see?
Truly the Lord says "Offenses will come"
But WOE to him that hurts the least
of My little ones!
Thank you for your teachable spirit,
I'm sure you heard all that I've said!
Because if not...
The Day of the Lord, you'll dread.
