The Ultimate Change

So short are the days of our lives on earth
It is not for us all to even know
When Jesus will return on the last day
Nor the hour when any of us will go
1 John 2:18
Little children, it is the last hour: and as ye heard that antichrist cometh, even now have there arisen many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last hour.
But of that day or that hour knoweth no one, not even the angels in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
The one malefactor dying on the cross
Defended Lord Jesus on his last day
Admitted he sinned and deserved to die
But this man Jesus was not the same way
And one of the malefactors that were hanged railed on him, saying, Art not thou the Christ? save thyself and us. But the other answered, and rebuking him said, Dost thou not even fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
“Please remember me Lord in your kingdom”
He asked as our dear Lord was sacrificed
Jesus reassured this man who confessed
“Today you'll be with me in Paradise”
And he said, Jesus, remember me when thou comest in thy kingdom. And he said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To-day shalt thou be with me in Paradise.
We learn of our wonderful Gods mercy
His redeeming love and His gift ofgrace
Forgiving us bestowingpeace inside
Jesus left to prepare us all a place
In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.
This world is filled with manydistractions
Temptations that try to draw us away
The Holy Spirit helps us to overcome
He guides and teaches us all of Gods way
But the Comforter, even the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teachyou all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you.
Through the dear price Jesus paid God forgives
We repent over our failures and sins
God then adopts us all as His children
Then He works on all our hearts deep within
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel After those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, And on their heart also will I write them: And I will be to them a God, And they shall be to me a people:
This is the covenant that I will make with them After those days, saith the Lord: I will put my laws on their heart, And upon their mind also will I write them; then saith he,
The transformation is just amazing
Forgiven and walking in our Lords love
Scripture says weare sealed in the Spirit
Jesus will return and we'll rise above
in whom ye also, having heard the word of the truth, the gospel of your salvation,-- in whom, having also believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,
And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, in whom ye were sealed unto the day of redemption.
