Why did I write Grand Dadas Book of Verse? Early I gained an appreciation for the King James version of the Bible and accepted Christ as my personal Saviour in the 1950s. The Baptist churches my wife and I later attended during 35-plus years of marriage have increased that interest. Iave chosen two rhyming line stanzas of simple poetry to present a strong Biblical message. These poems present the big difference between the old sinful nature and the new forgiven nature. Even so, most of us daily dip back into our old nature because we are human. God forgives, but letas not sin repeatedly knowing Heall forgive us. Satan is more active with the population increasing, and his destruction eminent and may, like in the book of Job, get Godas permission to give us hard days of difficulty. This life is not permanent but rather a preface of seventy years more or less before future judgment and eternity. Then we will receive a glorified body (perhaps one to endure hellfire and another for those praising God in Heaven).
