“Father God, thank You that we are NOT banished NOR vanished in Your Eyes. Thank You that we are rather wrong, violent, scold and curfew when we think You would banish or vanish us. Thank You that we are rather belong, vibrant, behold and virtue when we think You would NOT banish NOR vanish us. And it’s Your Son, Father God, and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, who is ALL we need for NOT banished NOR vanished us, ALL we need for BOTH LOVED and BELOVED by Him! On a more personal note, this God Sonnet pained me a bit to write, because I’m not comfortable writing about something that is NOT BOTH.😉 It’s True, though, that Jesus is NOT BOTH, as in NOT banished NOR vanished us. It’s also True that I wrote this God Sonnet specifically for where I am right now in this quarantine. It would be SO easy and the PERFECT opportunity for the enemy to get me right here with this quarantine. “Timothy, you are NOW banished AND vanished by EVERYONE! Nobody loves you! I’ve told you this I don’t know how many times! Do you believe me NOW?” I respond, “NO! I don’t believe YOU because you are the father of lies, and I don’t listen to fathers who lie! I ONLY listen to the Father of Truth, my Father God! Get behind me, Satan!” Yes, it would be SO easy and the PERFECT opportunity for the enemy, but, God Holy Spirit Help me, I will NOT give the enemy a foothold in all of this. Satan is a father of lies from the Beginning, and he will be a father of lies right up until the End. But God/Jesus is a Father of Truth from the Beginning, and He will be a Father of Truth right up until the End. ALL of this sounds SO easy but won’t always be SO easy, because we are talking about spiritual warfare, are we not? ‘For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the Heavenly Realms’ (Ephesians 6:12). We fight NOT the enemy with worldly weapons but only by putting on the Full Armor of God ( Ephesians 6:10-18 [PLEASE read these Bible Verses and put on the Full Armor of God for the spiritual warfare fought in the Heavenly Realms!]). And speaking of “NOT banished NOR vanished,” nothing disturbs me more than one of God’s nonhuman animals being BOTH banished AND vanished by cruel men (as in the picture). It is God-awful that anyone would BOTH banish AND vanish, i.e., abandon, one of God’s nonhuman animals. We know what the Bible has to say about that: ‘The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel’ (Proverbs 12:10). So, please don’t listen to me on the matter of BOTH banishing AND vanishing, i.e., abandoning, one of God’s nonhuman animals. Listen to GOD’S WORD!!!! I pray all of this in the wonderful and Precious and Agreed Name of Jesus Christ,, and this prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are lacking. Amen.”
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in NOT banished NOR vanished [NOT BOTH, NOT abandoned!] by Jesus Christ this daily leavened bread.”)
You are not banished but rather belong.
You are not vanished but rather vibrant.
“God is mad at me.” This is rather wrong.
“God forgets me.” This is rather violent.
I am not banished but rather behold.
I am not vanished but rather virtue.
“God is mad at me.” This is rather scold.
“God forgets me.” This is rather curfew.
“You are NOT banished NOR vanished by ME,”
says Jesus. “ALL you are to ME is LOVED!
Not a Height nor a Depth I won’t agree
to Scale it or ‘Deep’ it for you, BELOVED!”
The world wants us BOTH banished AND vanished.
Jesus NOT BOTH! NOT banished NOR vanished.
