“Why are you persecuting Me?”

Jesus asked that of Saul; and we ask today,
why oppose Christians who just want to pray?

And why should a book as greatly hailed
as the Bible oftentimes be assailed?

How have the ten commandments done harm
to people from any town, city, or farm?

And why does it cause some to be on edge
simply because “under God” is in a pledge?

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
A nation is sound when faith in Him is restored.

Why balk at the belief of intelligent design?
The right scientific research and the Bible do align.

Surely, all should see the need to refrain
from torturing the unborn with brutal pain.

Why does abortion become a cause
some fight for–can’t they see its harmful flaws?

The fruit of the womb is God’s “reward;”
that person in the womb is designed by the Lord.

He asked of Saul, and believers ask today…
why keep God’s amazing grace and love away?

Why do some resist a Name so renowned
and One who is coming back, rightly crowned?

The world has heard of His virgin birth–
He is Christ, the King, of incalculable worth.

P. A. Oltrogge

“Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

“As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?’

“And he said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’

“Then the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.'” Acts 9:1-5 NKJV

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.” Psalm 33:12 KJV

“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Psalm 24:1 KJV

“Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” Psalm 127:3 KJV

“Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.” Revelation 14:14 NKJV

“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:


Revelation 19:11-16 NKJV
