This Is Your Jurisdiction

This is Your jurisdiction
For Heaven and Earth are Thine
And all men are accountable
For You instituted time
And put a degree by Your Word
That can never be annulled
And everyman shall rise again
When the great white Judgement throne calls

And when the books are opened
Every thought and deed exposed
Except those at the Judgement seat of Christ
Delivered because Christ arose
What a day of reckonings
The balances shall be just
And everyman know of his eternal fate
Because of his failure to trust

Weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth
Their destiny bodeth not well
Their reward for their unbelief
An eternity with Satan in Hell
Death and Hell cast into the lake of fire
Tormented twenty four seven
With the eternal thought of the option they had
They could have gone to Heaven

And still Lord Jesus magnified
The great Deliverer over sin
Forever impressed upon their thoughts
If only I trusted in Him
What an eternal separation
Because of the spurning of God's love
And unbelief in their only Hope
Explained clearly in His Word

Why place time over eternity
And neglect Salvation's call
Remember God and the title He bears
For He is Lord of all
Today if you hear His small voice
Harden not your heart
You don't want to hear these words from God
"I never knew you...from me depart!"

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
