    Lightbulb Interrupted Road to Damascus

    Have you been on the road to Damascus? Have you asserted your right to protest?
    I don't fault you for not believing it all, but why haven't you taken the test?
    "DO IT YOURSELF, IF YOU WANT IT DONE RIGHT", is advice my father gave me..
    and anything as important as eternal life should be given a high priority.

    So finally I've taken the bull by the horns, and set out to see for myself,
    If this book called the Bible is at all reliable, or is it better left on the shelf?
    My studies have ranged from the Hebrew to Greek, and to begin with was utter confusion..
    But little-by-little the Light came through, until now it's a great profusion!

    Were they saying it like this all along, and I just didn't have ears to hear?
    I don't recall it making any sense at all--their point was just not clear.
    I'd always thought it was the Preacher's job; Isn't that what we paid him for?
    Though I never agreed that his word was for me, and I slept 'cause I was so bored.

    He claimed that the things he preached were from the Holy Bible..
    and I had enough sense not to argue with him--he might be infallible.
    So I tried to read The Book for myself--the words from the Book of Life;
    It was in my mind to do what it said, but I only got over in strife.

    The things I read in Genesis didn't make good sense at all..
    If God wrote this book, I decided, He just did it to get my gall!
    But now that I've come to know Jesus, and the terms of the New Covenant,
    I've seen that a veil was over the Old; that those ways were not permanent.

    If God were real, I once reasoned, Would anything be too tough for Him?
    No! So why doesn't he just announce his presence, and convict me of my sin?
    I'm ready to take my punishment, or at least I thought I was...
    Why did he wait till it got so great, and I became a lost cause?

    The answers to these questions are now made clear to me,
    And I'll try to spell them out for you--for your benefit, you see.
    If your beliefs are like concrete: thoroughly mixed up and firmly set,
    Then give this poem to a friend who hasn't been saved as yet.

    Paul's trip on the Road to Damascus was for the purpose of exposing a lie...
    But when that Great Light shined on him, he knew it was do-or-die.
    It turned his life around, and set his feet on the street called "Straight",
    and when the scales came off his eyes, he knew it was "Fish, or cut bait".

    These days the Capital of Syria is still Damascus, and is in the news lately because of the revolution in that Moslem nation.. -- Isaiah 17 has prophesied concerning how Damascus would "no longer be a city, but instead 'a ruinous heap". Shades of Hiroshima, you think?

    The 66 Books of the Bible are the most challenging and profound reading ever written, but if you only know what Other People say about it, you'll miss a Great Blessing. Figuratively we're ALL on 'The Road to our Destiny', subject to change when we see the Great Light of the Glorious Truth of the Word of God. I can Tell you about the eleventh son of Jacob, and how to find eleven Joseph's in the Bible, but until you check it out personally, you really haven't been interrupted on the Road to Damascus like Paul.

    Road to Damascus (Isa17) wasn't paved, I'm guessing, so different from the Road to Hell ! You think?
