Swimming through Hell

By Philip Lam
October 18, 2006
I’m swimming through the flames of hell and I can’t turn back
Stroke after stroke wears me down
And I wish I could be done although I feel I must go on
Life is like a great marathon that goes on and never ends
Just like a race there are rules that can not be bent
Don’t know what to do, I’m tired yet still must go on cue.

The water is the edge of hell’s door ever slowing me down making me stay at shore
One mistake could send me falling into the depths of hell so keep to my technique or fail
It is the wall that blocks me from the goal at hand
So as the blade of God I must slice through the wall as straight as a needle
As swift as a cheetah will I glide no matter how strong or wide
Not this time or any other, will you claim my soul into the dark depths of your domain.

My ever tiring arms are what pull me through to You
Without them I would surely fall because they are what hold me tall
Nice and steady I must keep them or to tired will I become
They must never go to fast nor to slow or shambles will I be after I lose my key
Always in a rhythm will they be never looking forward at this endless sea
These are the bearings that lift me up to You, weary they become yet still they are fairing.

Each breath I take is as if giving into desire and nearing that eternal fire
Though I crave for air I must hold it in till I can not hold any longer
For each breath slows me down and I fear I’ll never be found
Oh curse this dreaded life that makes me go through such strife
I can not wait to reach the flags knowing that I’m nearing my tag
When final I may pass that weary and dreadful task.

Nearer and nearer I come to being done but still I must go on
For second after second ticks on and moment after moment counts
For without speed I’ll fall fast into last
And if I’m last, fall I will, into that horrid place where they creep and crawl
Ahhh! The pain is unbearable yet sacrifices must be made to reach the final day
For there I shall rejoice because my task is has been completed and I’ll look back and say
“Oh at least it was good fun but I’m glad I’m finally done.”

Through Angel's Eyes

By Philip Lam
October 17, 2006
Made by God to serve and obey, I will fight day after day
God has given us the privilege to see His angelical face, and that is reward enough
We are gifted with power beyond all creatures yet we obey man’s call
We bade the call of men because we are servants to them who have authority over us
We are divine soldiers who help souls in need of God’s grace
Our Majestic knowledge knows no boundary
We are protectors of the humankind
Together we pray for all the troubled hearts who seek to know the truth
We fend off Satan and all his minions who wage war on the temples of God.

Those who could not follow and obey as I do, have fallen to my blade
I defeated all traitors, with God by my side guiding me all the way
It is a never ending battle against Satan and all his demonic friends
Though he once was my brother, he denied God and therefore denied me
He cursed me and all who followed Christ
I wept for him for he and all the others by him are my brethren who have fallen
But now my tears are hardened for he is no longer my brother, he has cursed our Creator
The very person who gave him life, and the very person that loved him.

So when I fight I know I do not fight my brother for my brother is dead
No brother of mine scorns the almighty One
He may look as my brother but I say to you he is merely another demon of hell
My brother Lucifer died along time ago he is now and forever gone
In his place came Satan the king of all evil
Glad would I be to smite his foul head off and end his plague of sin
The plague that cause mankind to suffer and fall
Oh let the burden of hell be gone from this world not even man should feel its sting.

We have been called to arms by God to attack the realm of the wicked one
We will charge into the mouth of hell into the very land which the foredoomed one stay
With banners flying and men praying we engage the enemy and let loose our power
The fires of hell blaze with anger and dismay and their battle cries are deafening
The distorted figures that rise from the flames curse and screech in fury
They crawl and they spring, they snatch and they claw fighting as mad animals
We soldiers do not back down we fight to the end to get rid of the sin
We have gallantly road into the depths of hell seeking lost souls
I now we’ve returned with the help of Gods grace and again can we serve and obey
As divine soldiers day after day.

A Friendly Companion

Prayer for Battle

By Loree Lam

Dear God, in my heart, help me to create a Holy Suit of Armor and battle tactics that not even Satan can penetrate. Joan of Ark ride with me as I move forward on this Journey in Life, help me to be armed and ready for all of Satan’s deceptive ways. Saint Michael lead me in the days of battle. Christ fill me with understanding and wisdom that will help me to stand up strong and reach my final call. Let your light shine brightly so the path will be clear and I pray, that your light will reflect off of me for others to see and follow. Please send an army of angels to accompany me as long as I walk this perilous journey. And know O Lord, that above all things my love is for you. Christ, the source of all my strength, be in my thoughts, and in my words and in my heart today, tomorrow, and always. Amen

Brothers in Spirit

By Philip Lam
September 26, 2006
Feel thy fur of silk so fine,
And lovely lustrous mane,
Thy nobility knows no bounds
And loyalty no pain
On thy back I wilt ride,
With my head, held high,
Toward the eastern sky
With mighty spurs of steel
I’m off to the western desert
Proud am I to gallop far and wide
Along the southern shore
Now to the northern wind we fly
Past Asgard and old Thor
Around the world we’ve gone
No rope or metal can hold us down
For never can we stay bound
We are as brothers who deny a farewell
Together we will stay
One man and one horse
Wandering the world without a course.

There’s destined
There’s youth
There’s old
And there’s dead.

No matter how old
Or how young
How wise
Or how dumb
How large
Or how small,

You will never
Be greater,
Or holier
Then God.

For he is our
Our Master,
Our Teacher,
Our Savior,
And Our Beloved Father.

So listen to Him
Obey Him,
Worship Him,
Praise Him,
Trust Him,
And Love Him
Forever and ever

Soldiers for Christ

By Philip Lam
October 10, 2006
To arms, young soldiers of Christ
Cloak yourself with the chain mail of love
Laden yourself with the armor of the angels
Sheath yourself with the shields of divine mercy
Furnish yourself with the angelical sword of God
Mount yourself upon the steed of majestic grace
March with the virtuous saints of Christ.

Forward youthful soldiers of Christ
Rally those who have awaken from evil
Gather those who have trusted in Christ
Call those who listen to the word of God
Assemble those who are true to the faith
Arouse those who have waited in mediation
Train the newly recruited men of Christ.

Demonstrate, blossoming soldiers of Christ
Teach all the way of the faith
Instruct all in the purpose of life
Shape all into the perfect warriors of Christ
Mold all into fishers of men
Guide all who ask for guidance from the Lord
Lead these men to thy glorious victory.

Shepherd untried soldiers of Christ
Charge the enemies of the church
Drive out the devilish people in God’s name
Advance on the enemy threshold
Tear down the fake idols and let them burn
Cast out the devils that lurk within men
And prepare for the coming of our King.

Make ready loyal soldiers of Christ
Weep for those who have fallen from God
Repent for forgiveness
Cleanse yourself for the coming of Christ
Redeem yourself for judgment will be passed
Meditate on the holy scriptures of God
For the Kingdom of Heaven is near.

Laden with Man's Emotion

By Philip Lam
October 17, 2006
Who has given you wisdom that you may learn
Who has given you mastery that you may lead
Who has given you emotion that you may love
He gives to us our freedom that we may
Learn, lead, and love each other
Who but God can give us salvation?

But who has opened desire that we may lust
Who has opened guilt that we may loath
Who has opened treachery that we may lie
He opened to us our wants that we may
Lust, loath, and lie to each other
Who but Satan tries to bring us into subjection?

And who has given you life that you may live in His service
Who has given you himself that you may live in sanctity
Who has given you peace that you may live in serenity
He shows to us the path to take that we may live in His
Service, sanctity, and serenity if we choose to follow Him
Who but Jesus Christ can give us complete tranquility?

But who has unleashed chaos that we may live in shambles
Who has unleashed hate that we may live in shame
Who has unleashed fear that we may be subdued
He unleashed to us sin that we may live in
Shambles, shame, and be subdued by his evil ways
Who but Lucifer would bring to us deception?

Man’s life was gifted in grace by God
But in his ignorance gives way to Satan’s seductive ways
Man’s life is a war against Satan
Struggling to reach Heaven yet tempted by desire
If man so lad en’s himself with possessions of the earth
Then he may never experience the gifts of God
For as the bible has said
“It is easier for a poor man to reach Heaven”
“Than it is for a rich man with many possessions too”
God has given you freewill so with freewill find your way to God again.

Come all ye People

By Philip Lam
October 12, 2006

Come, all ye people
Let the grace of God spread throughout the air
For the divine heart is here oh ever so near
Let His words reach the darkest corners of the earth
For no man goes unnoticed, under God’s focus
Let every ear be open to hear the call of Jesus
For God wants all to follow Him, and not to let the devil swallow them

Come, all ye people
Let the joy of thy grace shine through thy face’s
For the love of thy King must radiate like the beauty of thy angels’ wings
Let thy King come to us in fame, to heal the sick and lame
For we are as sheep who need a Shepard to guide us through the night
Let the hearts of thy faithful explore thy angelical Words
For we are as infants that need thy majestic knowledge to speak.

Come, all ye people
Let God’s perpetual knowledge guide us through the night
For we are as blind men without Him
Let God’s sensational love show us, the way to act
For we are as moronic people, not knowing what to do without Him
Let God’s faith teach us how to reach Heaven
For we are as skeptic fools, without guidance.

Come, all ye people
Let God’s messages spread throughout the land so that we may understand
For we can not began to comprehend the mysteries of heaven
Let God come to me in the sign of the divine three
For without a doubt, I will know that it is Him
Let the entire world know that You are Yahweh
For only through you can we enter into the Kingdom of Heaven

Lord save me from this misery
No longer can I hold it in
The more I conceal it
The more my heart weakens
I feel like the end is near
My dying breath is almost here
I feel as if my heart was being beaten
My breathing is laden with weariness.

Every time a wrong is opened
And the world knows
I will feel the very sin that scourged You
The very devil that tempted You
The very guilt that burden You
The very evil that crucified You
This pain is unbearable
Yet You bore threw it for all of us.

After my sin is made known
I shut myself in exile
Not wishing to be seen out of shame
Though I know that I am loved
I fear the resentment and blame
But most of all I fear I have lost Thee
I know I am forgiven if I ask,
Oh most merciful dove, who flies from above.

I do not feel worthy to ask
Forgiveness from You
Who has shown so much mercy
That I’ve repaid in sin
Oh blessed Savior who has never wronged me
How can I ask for forgiveness?
When I’ve asked thousands of times already
And have still not turned from evil

I can now ask thee for forgiveness
Because I know that You will forgive me
Who has caused so much wrong
Because you are an ever forgiving God
Who forgives even those who have fallen into deep sin and then repented
For You are our Savior that died for our sins.

Anger of The Ocean

By Philip Lam
Based upon
A Sea Song by Allan Cunningham
September 26, 2006

A stormy stretch and an abounding sea
A squall that follows fast,
And fills the black and hollowed sails
And swerves the devilish mast;
And swerves the devilish mast, my boys,
While, like vultures feed we are,
Away the treacherous ship flies and flees
Old England on the lee.

“O for a harsh and brutal wind”
I heard bad thief cry;
But give to me the croaking gale
And blood red waves, with diving sail;
And blood red waves, with diving sail, my lads,
The treacherous ship loose and staved,
The world of waters is our prison,
And with darkness we are slaved.

There’s maelstrom in yon pallor moon,
And lighting in yon smog
But deafen the Siren’s, song
The gale has entranced thy fog
The gale has entranced thy fog, my boys,
The beating of thy heart is bound,
While the black flag be our domain,
Our souls will never be found.

“O farewell, I bid you adieu, aye, cruel creatures of earth I do.”
I screamed these words with posthaste,
To our black flag I do salute;
For our ship has quicken its paste,
For our ship has quicken its paste, my lads
Near to the oceans depths we are,
The crimson sea has come to claim,
The soul of mine into his domain.

Watching in Silence

By Philip Lam
October 2, 2006
I watched thee day by day, in silence
I hear thy lustrous voice
That radiates through the land
Like a gentle breeze that sweeps over the spring leaves
I’ve beheld thy wondrous beauty
That lures every man up high
Like the stunning fireworks adorning the July sky.

This I’ve seen in silence
Within the shadows of thy presence
Not daring to ask if you share
The flaming passion that I hold with care.

The more I look upon thy splendid yet unfathomable face
The more I wonder if you do
For I fear to ask
Not knowing if I could bare
The answer of that task.

So here I am in silence waiting for a sign
That will shed some light
Upon the question that is concealed in my mind.

I tell you this now,
No other will dwell in my mind
But you, oh I wish I could tell
But until that time comes
I’ll be watching in silence
For that awaited sign oh the love of mine.

Glorified by Christ

By Philip Lam
September 28, 2006

I’ve sinned and now I’ve fallen
O, how I wish I could redo
For the devilish things I’ve done
Have only caused agony, in everything I do
O, I know these deeds pleasurable
But in the end my only reward
Was eternal torment
In the world of the dead
With no mercy to look toward.

Moment after moment I am given pain
I feel as if wrapped in steaming metal
Step after step is like knifes under my feet
My lungs are as if I were breathing in fire
And my eye as if I were searing the very essences
I suffer and suffer yet do not perish
My wounds are ever piercing
I try to run but to no avail, they are everywhere
And I am lost in their evil abyss never to be freed nor die.

If you let me live once more
I’ll promise to be righteous
Though I do not know Your ways
I’ll ask Thee to teach my day after day and after I have learned
I’ll seek out others to teach them
I am not worthy of Thy grace
But only give the command and I shall be redeemed
You are an ever forgiving God
Who has mercy on those who hate and despise.

O hark to the good angel who sings thy merry songs
With joyous love greater then all the pleasure in the world
I join in song with thy radiant angels
Here there is no sorrow no pain nor guilt
Only kindness and love, that comes from above
And there is neither temptation nor lustful acts
Here there is equal ness among all
And no man is lower then the otherBut above all there is God our loving father.

Blood of Our Ancestors

By Philip Lam

October 4, 2006

Within me flows the blood of our ancestors,
Both valiant and treacherous alike,
And in my veins
Runs the blood of great and powerful nations
Whose reign brought both peaceful and warlike times
I come from the great and barbaric Huns of China
Who terrorized all of Europe
And I hold in my blood, the blood of the mighty Mongols
Whose battle tactics were superb
Huns and Mongols were barbarians, so a barbarian am I.

They had great skill, so with my ancestor’s wish
I’ll come and reclaim all that has fallen
And yet again will we be powerful
We shall reign for thousands of years
As a barbarian nation that shed no tears
I’ve learn the tactics of old and new
Made by the generals who have fought and died
Though our numbers may be few
In time we will grow into a nation
Who will conquer every foe.

In honor of the mighty Mongols
And of the heroic Huns
I will stand and fight
For what remains of that once great empire
That shook the world in anger
I am a barbarian who does not except defeat
My heart and my soul
Are made to be great, I am a leader
Who will bring my brethren to their feet
To become an empire that was long forgotten.

My brethren will raise their head
And cry the battle cry of old
A cry so fierce it strikes terror into the hearts of those who witness it
We are the barbarian barriers
And there is only one thing I will change
From the barbaric way
Their god, that led them to their destruction
My God, the one true God, will guide us to victory
Onward I say to redeem the great empire that was forged
By the blood of our ancestors.

A war torn land, sheathed with the bodies of the brave
With rival they lay, never again shall they see the day
New regiments gallantly ride into the blood forsaken land,
Were their brothers have fought and died.

“My God and my Lord have pity on me”
I heard young soldier cry as I watched him die
“Strengthen me my God my time is not now”
I said this in silence with my head in a bow.

The soldiers who once held high their head
With fire and victory in their eye
Now they hold their head sunk low
Their eyes are filled with despair and defeat.

But now with inspiration from above,
That returned to them, the fury that burnt within them all
They raise their head for one last call, with a battle cry and heads held high
They make one last march into the enemy line.

With loaded guns and a rebel yell
They charge the enemy line
They clash together in a blur of smoke
They’re neck-and-neck, not knowing friend from foe.

With drums booming, and voices blazing
The soldiers of the war come home
Cheers and shouts ring out for all the brave and bold
“The patriots have returned.” they yelled “And victorious have we come.”

On those days to come there was no feasting and celebration
But mourning and remembrance for all the dead and gone
Many families lost a son or father in that dreaded war
But most of all who feels the sting are the soldiers who endured.

But after all is said and done, and all mourning has ceased
They will raise their heads again with joyous praise to God
And together they will share in gratitude the beautiful “Amen”
But never will they forget that war that killed so many good men.
