Is Your Name Written In The Earth

Is Your Name Written In The Earth

IS YOUR NAME WRITTEN IN THE EARTH?

John 8:6(b)   But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though He heard them not.

Jeremiah 17:13  O Lord, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living waters.

A woman was brought to Jesus one day

As the Pharisees wanted to know what He’d say

She had been caught in the act of adultery

For which stoning in the Law was compulsory

They asked the Lord Jesus if this was so

As they were trying to test Him you know

Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground

Without uttering even one sound

But they kept on questioning, so He arose

And He then made a statement to His foes

He said the first stone should be thrown by him

Who could truthfully say that he was without sin

Jesus stooped again and wrote on the ground

And before very long He and the woman found

That they were left standing quite alone

Cause the Pharisees had slunk off home

He asked the woman where her accusers were

And whether any man was left to condemn her

“No man Lord”, is what the woman said

“Neither do I condemn you”, He said

Her entire being was flooded with grace

As she met with her Saviour face to Face

“Go and sin no more” were the words He spoke

And she was filled with faith, love and hope

Why did the Lord Jesus write in the ground that day

Please tell me oh Lord, is what we must pray

We must ask why our Lord Jesus did what He did

And why this marvellous Truth has been hid

God hides these things from the prudent and wise

Whose hearts are on earth and not in the skies

He has revealed them to babes who rest in Him

And who know they’ve been forgiven of their sin

The Scriptures were fulfilled that momentous day

In the most astounding and astonishing way

It is not just the New Testament that is reliable

Our Lord Jesus is on every page of the Bible

The Old Testament is not a boring old history book

If you think that, then I’d urge you to take a look

And see that the New is in the Old concealed

And the Old is in the New revealed

The New is in the Old contained

And the Old is in the New explained

Those Scribes and Pharisees knew the Law

And they must have been shaken to the core

When the Lord Jesus fulfilled in Jeremiah Seventeen

What was written and preserved in Verse Thirteen

We do not know if they actually saw their own name

Of if they understood Jeremiah’s very serious claim

That those who depart from the hope of Israel

Will indeed tell an horrendous and horrifying tale

If they forsake the Lord of glory and they depart

They will end up in hell with a stony heart

They have forsaken the Fountain of Living Water

Whether they be father, mother, son or daughter

They think they’re not sinners but cast the blame

And the last thing they’d do is call on God’s Name

They have a form of religion but it is just a bluff

Their good deeds and self-righteousness are not enough

Their names are not in the Lambs Book of Life

Oh no…

But in this devilish earth that is down below

………………

So ponder these questions now that you’ve heard

The stupendous Truth contained in God’s Word

WHERE HAS THE FINGER OF GOD WRITTEN YOUR NAME?

AND WHAT WAS THE REASON OUR LORD JESUS CAME?
