All scriptural references are from the King James
Having grown up being steeped in this world’s culture, which to a great
extent revolves around this world’s holidays, I know full well the great
influence that celebrations involving music, art, and poetry can have on
young minds. It is my hope that these poems and lyrics, based on God’s
ordained Holy Days and the inspired words of God, can help develop
the kind of culture among God’s people that will influence the children
of God’s church in the right way. Some of these poems have already
been put to music, and hopefully others will lend themselves to this
venue as well.
When referring to child rearing, a wise man once stated that if you
take something away from a child, you should give them something
else to take its place. While he was referring to a child who wants to
play with something he should not, the same principle applies when
we take away this world’s holidays that mean so much to children;
especially those children coming into God’s church from the world.
We need many more songs about the true Holy Days, the true church,
and the good news of tomorrow’s world that our children can relate to
and internalize. We need to develop a whole righteous culture based
on true knowledge—a culture that celebrates true values and virtues
with uplifting songs, jubilant dance, wonderful art, and positive
literature with memorable poetry—to give to our children in place of
the traditions and culture this present evil world offers.
Some will argue that all these sacred Festivals and Holy Days
were abolished with Christ on the cross, but careful examination of
all the scriptures reveal otherwise. Luke records that after Christ died,
the women prepared spices and ointments to anoint the body, then
“rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment.” The gospel
writers all agree that Christ gathered with His disciples to celebrate the
Passover on the very evening before His crucifixion. The book of Acts
shows the faithful believers and followers of Christ gathering together
“in one accord” more than 50 days after the crucifixion for the Feastof Pentecost, called “the Feast of Firstfruits” in the Old Testament.
Concerning the Days of Unleavened Bread, Paul told believers in
Corinth to “keep the Feast.” Luke records that Paul, referring either to a
spring or fall Festival, stated he “must by all means keep the feast that
comes to Jerusalem.” Luke mentions other Holy Days and Festivals
in the book of Acts. Jude, the brother of Christ, lamented that certain
evil doers had crept into the church, and were “spots in your feasts of
charity”—undoubtedly referring to those Feasts ordained of God. One
cannot clearly see the incredible step by step plan God has for all of
mankind without recognizing the outline for that plan as pictured to us
by these sacred Holy Days: played out year by year in the very order by
which God is carrying out His amazing plan of salvation.
The poems in this collection have been written over a period of
about 20 years. Several small booklets have been printed and handed
out in a limited way to a number of members. Some have been sent
to the elderly or infirm who were unable to attend the fall Feast of
Tabernacles. Several requests have come from the brethren since,
wanting copies of these earlier booklets which are currently out of
print. More poems have been written and added to my collection
since these were published; including a number of poems and lyrics
for younger children. I would have desired for all these poems to be
made available free of charge to all of God’s people, but being a man of
limited resources, I knew of no way to do so. While it has never been
my desire to profit from the brethren with these poems, the brethren
could use second tithe funds during God’s annual Feast of Tabernacles
to purchase this collection and defray printing costs. Perhaps in the
future they can be used as fund raisers
