by Rev. Eugene Evans Sr.
-TAG. U.L. Church, August 17, 2010,
Las Vegas, Nevada
Twice before I had stopped and asked people, but failed to find it with their directions. Then I saw this older gentleman, and asked him. He said he could help me, and I asked if he would ride with me and direct me to the place.
He agreed, but first had me meet his wife, who came out from the house to call him to lunch. He explained to her what he was doing, and then we left, and he knew exactly the place and we arrived there in a minute or two.
As I drove to and from there, I got to learn about Rev. Evans and his church in Las Vegas for gangsters, street people, homeless, addicts of all kinds, all equally needing the Lord's salvation and healing touch to deliver them from their sin and addictions.
Who can speak most effectively to the gangsters and street people than one who has been there himself, and who knows that culture intimately, and how Jesus Christ is the only real Way out. He has three books of poems, he said, which he is getting to people who want to support his ministry. He gave me three typed poems I am now sharing with you, plus a CD of a Radio message in Tacoma he made on a Christian station. He knew my church and promised to come down to visit. I hope to see him again, and now you have the results of an answered prayer, these three great poems!--Ed.
Mark 10: 19, 21, 22
By finding you a husband or a wife.
Do not steal, do not kill, do not live phony,
Do not give a false testimony.
Do not cheat your brother,
and honor your father and mother.
Go sell everything and give it to the poor.
THEN COME FOLLOW ME,
And your treasures with Jesus Christ for eternity.
Some things in life some people can't let go of,
so they can live in heaven with Jesus in heaven up above.
They can't face life without drugs, alcohol, immoral sex acts.
As a matter fact, while lusting,
they love all that's DISGUSTING,
and they love cussing and fussing.
Other people's business they can't help discussing.
They are faithless, worthless, unrighteous, full of selfishness.
It would be easier for a camel to get through an eye of a needle
than for anyone living like this!!!
Fool, this is your life Jesus died to save,
bury all of your worldly pride deep in a grave,
don't behave the way the world behaves,
pick up your cross THEN COME AND FOLLOW ME.
My name is Christ Jesus, I'll lead you into eternity.
If you believe this, says the Lord, then come follow Me.
It won't cost you a dime, the gift of salvation is Free.
seeing the damage from drinking.
Drinking puts us in a drunken spell,
that leads to death, institutions or jail.
I am on my knees each morning before
my feet hit the floor.
I am talking to my Heavenly Father,
the One I am living for.
Before my feet hit the floor,
each one of you I am praying for.
On my knees I simply pray,
Walk with us, Lord, throughout this day.
The alcoholic, the drug addict, Lord, please
touch them while I am on bending knees.
From the rich to the poor,
from the saint to the whore,
from the preacher, to the teacher,
from the police, judge, and president,
I am praying for us all...
on my knees I now Repent!!!
Lord, the whole world is in Your debt,
the homeless, the widow, and children.
Lord, please do not forget
to grant us grace, mercy and love,
as I send my prayer to You, Lord, up above.
Lord, lately I have been thinking
about how our society is sinking.
Lord, we have sinned, I won't pretend
that I am all that, just humble me
down on my knees,
so Your love I WON'T FORGET.
Yes, on my knees I will thank you forever more,
BEFORE MY FEET HIT THE FLOOR!
Matt. 8: 20; Ephesians 4:28, 2 Thess 3:10, Hebrews 13:5, Jer. 9: 23
unless you're homeless, most people have a home to enter for rest.
But the Son of Man has no place to rest His head,
the homeless go to the missions and shelters to find a bed,
so listen carefully to the words I just said,
the Son of Man has no place to lay His head.
Lord Jesus, you gave me your very best, so lay your head
inside of me, let Your spirit draw me close to Thee.
The Lord has nowhere to lay His head in this world of sin,
we the children of God can open our hearts letting our Savior in.
So never let it be said that inside of Rev. Eugene, Jesus had NO PLACE TO LAY HIS HEAD...
FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD!
Called-out-Ones, I'm working for Christ Jesus.
Within me, Jesus, make your bed.
Nowhere to lay His head, without Jesus where would I have been?
Just another sinner lost deep in sin, no where to rest His head!
"For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule,
if a man does not work, he shall not eat"--nowhere to rest His head.
He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work,
doing something useful with his own hands,
that he must have something to share with those in need.
Called-out-Ones, start witnessing for Jesus,
sharing God's words and planting Seeds.
"Let not the wise man boast about his wisdom,
the strong man boast of his strength,
In conclusion, Called-out-Ones, keep yourselves free from the love of money,
and be content with what you have.
Because God has said..."Within these things my Son
has NO PLACE TO REST HIS HEAD."
Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests,
so open up your hearts to God's righteousness.
Called-out-Ones, let it never be said...
that within us JESUS HAD NO PLACE TO REST HIS HEAD.
