Jesus is my God

By: Woodrow Odom Lucas

Jesus is my God and Jesus is Love,

He is the answer to all riddles, he is all our problems solved.

And not hell itself will ever shake my resolve.

To fight to the death and after that,

For this name of love abounding,

For this music resounding,

I will fight with all I am for his love to spread to all,

For he died in absolute misery so that none would fall,

He saved my soul from torment and taught me how to fight,

So that I could be a mighty soldier,

A soldier for the light,

Jesus is my God and Jesus is love,

And love is my obsession, love is my quest,

And until all know love, I will not rest,

For I have been tested by the fire and came out alive,

And soon we all shall rise,

For a mighty warrior came and died yes it was some time ago.

But his beauty and his spirit continues to flow,

For when he rose from the depths of torment,

He became a mystery,

He became love incarnate and joy for you and me,

And soon he shall redeem all things, you’ll see,

Until then it is the lamb of God for whom I fight, with love in flight,

Until it is for the lamb of God that I wave my swords of light,

Just open up your heart and ask for his love to come in,

And you’ll see that because he won,

We all win!!!

The One

I truly believe that all you need to be whole and content in this life is a higher power who you believe loves you and who you believe loves everyone else too.  Maybe your higher power is the sacred Gaia, or maybe even your higher power is science and empiricism.  All you really need to be whole and content in this life is belief in something larger than yourself that keeps your soul stable.  But I tell you, there is a man, who was born of a virgin who embraced misery so that none might know misery.  This man is beyond equal.  No one no matter how great, no matter how wise, no matter how powerful compares to this man.  Is it fair that God would choose a man and not a woman to be the greatest that ever lived or ever will live? Is this fair? I am not sure? I am not God? But there can only be one chosen one, the rest of us are just one of many.  There is only one Messiah, the rest of us are just Avatars or Bodhisattvas.  The rest of us are just one of many.  But he is the one.  This a great mystery.  But my very DNA cries out to Jesus of Nazareth.  For there can only be one chosen one.  And this man came to me when I was strapped down on a gurny after a 3 month delusional episode in Christiana Hospital and said, “Now we take it day by day my son” and together me and Jesus of Nazareth have taken it day by day and now I am free and whole and true.

I truly believe that all you need to be whole and content in this life is a higher power who you believe loves you and who you believe loves everyone else too.  And many can fulfill this role.  Allah, the Buddha, Vishnu, Siva, Babaji, Adamas of Telos, Yogananda, Mary, the Holy Spirit, Mother Earth, the Sacred Beloved.  For there are many saints and deities who are full of love and power, but there is only one whose love was great enough to become an infant, so that he could show us the way out of our infancy.  Yes it is true that there are many Bodhisattvas who forsake Nirvana until all have come into bliss and that is beautiful.  But there is only one who became evil so that he could overcome evil for us all.  There is only one who became misery, so that he could save all from misery and there is only one who embraced hell to ensure that all would one day be free of it.  You see only one Avatar, only one Bodhissatva had enough love to ensure that none, not one would be lost forever.  It is this God that I serve.  As I said, all you need to be content and whole on the earth is a higher power who loves you and who you believe loves everyone else too.  But if you want to know the man who imagined your DNA into existence trillions of years before the concept of a year existed, then give your life to Jesus.  I promise you that in the end, you won’t regret it!!
