"Only A Branch"


I am the vine, ye are the branches. - John 15:5.

Tis only a little Branch,
A thing so fragile and weak,
But that little Branch hath a message true
To give, could it only speak.

I'm only a little Branch,
I live by a life not mine,
For the sap that flows through my tendrils small
Is the life-blood of the Vine.

No power indeed have I
The fruit of myself to bear,
But since I'm part of the living Vine,
Its fruitfulness I share.

Dost thou ask how I abide?
How this life I can maintain? -
I am bound to the Vine by life's strong band,
And I only need remain.

Where first my life was given,
In the spot where I am set,
Upborne and upheld as the days go by,
By the stem which bears me yet.

I fear not the days to come,
I dwell not upon the past,
As moment by moment I draw a life,
Which for evermore shall last.

I bask in the sun's bright beams,
Which with sweetness fills my fruit,
Yet I own not the clusters hanging there,
For they all come from the root.

A life which is not my own,
But another is life in me:
This, this is the message the Branch would speak,
A message to thee and me.

Oh, struggle not to abide,
Nor labor to bring forth fruit,
But let Jesus unite thee to Himself,
As the Vine Branch to the root.

So simple, so deep, so strong
That union with Him shall be:

His life shall forever replace thine own,
And His love shall flow through thee.

For His Spirit's fruit is love,
And love shall thy life become,
And for evermore on His heart of love
Thy spirit shall have her home.

WARNING: TO ALL UNSAVED
AND CHRISTIANS

THE LORD IS COMING!

BE READY WHO SAID SO? BE READY
CHRIST Himself - “… I will come again…” John 14:3
ANGELS said it - “ This same Jesus shall … come in
like manner…” Acts 1:11
PAUL taught it - “..the Lord himself shall descend from
heaven…” I Thess.4:16

HE IS COMING QUICKLY
God’s Word closes with this three-fold message to all
(Rev.22:7,12,20)
“Behold, I come quickly:”
“Behold, I come quickly;”
“Surely I come quickly.”

HE IS COMING SUDDENLY
For some - “...as a thief in the night.” I Thess.5:2
For others- “Lest coming suddenly he find you
sleeping.” Mark 13:36
For all (the saved) - “… in the twinkling of an eye…”
I Cor.15:52

HE IS COMING FOR HIS OWN
I Thess.4:16,17 - “… a shout… the voice.. The trump
of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise
first: Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together… to meet the
Lord in the air…”
Phil.3:21 - “...shall change our vile body… like unto
his glorious body…”
I John 3:2 - “… we shall be like him; for we shall see him
as he is.”

HE WANTS YOU TO BE READY!
Mark 13:33 - “Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not
when the time is.”
