False Advertising (A Poem)

Post by jeweledpastor on Sat Jan 17, 2009 8:06 pm

Greeting, brothers and sisters! Lately, God has been inspiring me to write poetry. Not the traditional sort, just a kind of free verse. Anyway, this is the latest one. Hope you all enjoy it.
Tip: read it as if it was a dramatic presentation.....it's really meant to be heard, not read! ;-)



False Advertising

By Regina L. Warren





Daughter of the world

Inheritor of glory

Do you not perceive the reality of you?



You are as one who sleeps

No – worse – you are mesmerized, bewitched!

Wrapped in the cocoon of a reality

Woven by the master of deception……

You are seduced by the seducer

Ravaged by the ravager,

Reduced to the immediate existence

That is fashioned by the demands of a body

Which – even now – rots & dies!



You have agreed and acquiesced to the standards and

Judgments of a beauty which you can neither own nor hold.



In the pursuit of admiration and love,

You have allured and flirted with the enemy.

The bosom bared, midriff barely covered

The jeans you had to lie down to zip!

Makeup, hair, nails, jewels…..just so.

All worn with an attitude of advertisement

And so you place yourself on display.



Hoping to be discerned as a rare jewel,

Longing to be purchased by one who

Will search out all of your beauty..

In each and every facet, inside and out

You are instead rented, used, tired of, ……………and returned.



Victim of your own clever advertising scheme

You are shocked when it succeeds….

Not in the way you had hoped.



Now you have a new label; “used”.

In fact, a whole new set

Which the world will make sure you know:

“reduced price”, “bargain”, “cheap”, “second-hand”……



Who will have you now?



You re-adjust your expectations

And begin again to search for a

New marketing campaign, a positive spin.



…..WOMAN OF THE WORLD…..EXPERIENCED……SKILLED…….

……sounds great!



Yet while one alluring voice seeks to convince you of added worth,

Another whispers mournfully

Shame, shame, shame….

Jaded – stupid – gullible – unworthy

Easy – whore – dirty –



Ah, what a wickedly clever scheme!

All of these ideas you thought were your own

Were the original FALSE advertising scheme

Conceived of the prince of hype & deception

The master of magicians…..

Illusion wrapped in allusion.



Seeking to hide you from yourself

To rob you of your promise

He whispers softly…

Lovingly…

AT FIRST!



But all too soon, the whispers turn to snickers.

The encouragement to mocking

The smiles to sneers…

He has with honeyed words

Drawn you into a snare, a shadow world,

A doorway to destruction.



And as you enter in, buying the product,

The same one who lured you

Begins to bait you!

With words, he reveals his true intent:

The total destruction of everything God created you to be!



Daughter of the world, cast off this illusion!

Listen to the voice of truth,

Dance with the one who dances over you…..

For in His words you will be reflected

Until you see the real reality………………….you ARE an Inheritor of Glory!



The Creator of the Universe SPOKE and you became!

And His plans for you are for good and not for evil!

He has purchased you with the highest price,

And you will never be returned!

And although you ARE beautiful, comely, and fine

Your worth will never diminish with age or injury.



For your worth is of an indestructible spirit

The Spirit of Truth, who lives within you

And is not a respecter of persons!

Indeed, it is said that Jesus was not of a

Remarkably distinguished or handsome appearance……

Yet He is the Pearl of Great Price!



And daughter……He has chosen YOU!



SO……wear your jewels, dress in your finery, put on your makeup, and paint your nails!

But do all of it…..not with an attitude of advertisement…..but of announcement….



HERE AM I! I AM BELOVED BY AND WED TO THE KING OF KINGS!



MY HUSBAND KNOWS EVEN THE INNERMOST THOUGHTS OF MY HEART….

ALL OF IT, GOOD AND BAD…..AND HE LOVES ME STILL!



HE DRAWS ME CLOSER, HE DRAWS ME HIGHER, HE PURIFIES ME,

AND SANCTIFIES ME!



I AM REDEEMED! A GREAT AND COSTLY PRICE WAS POURED OUT TO PURCHASE ME. I WILL NOT BE RETURNED!

THE DAMAGES DONE TO ME BY THE ENEMY ARE BEING LOVINGLY AND PAINSTAKINGLY REPAIRED AND ERASED!



HE IS POLISHING, REFINING, PURIFYING, MOLDING, LEADING…..

AND ONLY IN HIS HANDS WILL I BECOME WHO I TRULY

AM!



I JUST HAVE ONE THING TO SAY ABOUT OUR GOD…..

TRANSFORMATION
ROCKS!!!!

Connie, by all means copy and read it! It was meant to minister to others......that's why I put it out......in faith that it will be shared!
I decree over you right now that, as you're reading, Holy Spirit will inhabit your voice. I speak freedom through the sound of these words ....... that women and young ladies will be freed from the lies of the enemy......that eyes of the Spirit will be opened and they will SEE who they really are......
If you'll let me know when you're going to read it, I will be praying as you're presenting it.

WHOA my friend!! You obviously have a ministry that is undeniable. What a beautful message for women across this world. I too would like to print this and give you the well deserved acknowledgements. You may want to get your writings copyrighted...it is God's truth written in poetic form...

Glory to God!!!


Do not fight FOR victory, but fight FROM THE PLACE of victory. Jesus has ALREADY won the battle!

This is beautiful. I would like to copy and share it as well.

I do agree with Cholette about having it copyrighted. It is kind of expensive but a close relative of mine told me the cheap way to do it because I write poetry as well. Address an envelope to you - from you -and mail it. I always write the name of the poem somewhere on the envelope before I mail it so I'll know which poem it is because you CANNOT OPEN IT. Whatever you do...don't open it.

I always put the date I wrote it under my name, as the author, at the end of the poem. Even if you don't mail it the same day, you'll still have the original date (on the poem itself) it was written and then you'll have the postmark date (on the envelope) after it's mail.

AGAIN...DO NOT OPEN IT WHEN YOU GET IT BACK THROUGH THE MAIL!
