No Part Of This World
Author: Ben Laney

vinebar

He was a healer
he was gentle, he was kind
He foretold a future
which would bring a better time
And he said his kingdom
is no part of this world

His Kingdom
is no part of this world
His Kingdom
is no part of this world
He said to render unto Caeser
whatever belongs to Caeser
But he refused to pledge allegiance
to any mortal, earthly ruler
no matter what flag he might unfurl
And he said his Kingdom
is no part of this world

Tempted by satan
who was offering a crown
Saying, "This world is yours
if just once you will bow down."
But Christ said his kingdom
is no part of this world

He walked on water
on the Sea of Galilee
He made deaf ones hear
He caused the blind man to see
and he said his Kingdom
is no part of this world

He spoke to the people
at the Sermon on the Mount
He used common language
so there would not be a doubt
And he said his Kingdom
is no part of this world

He came to suffer
to pour out his very soul
To give his life that others
would by God's power be made whole
And he said his Kingdom
is no part of this world

He talked to Pilate
knowing he would surely die
He looked at that leader
yes, he looked him in the eye
And he said his Kingdom
is no part of this world

His Kingdom
is no part of this world
His Kingdom
is no part of this world
He said to render unto Caeser
whatever belongs to Caeser
But he refused to pledge allegiance
to any mortal, earthly ruler
no matter what flag he might unfurl
And he said his Kingdom
is no part of this world

------- Author's Notes -------

This dedicated to all who pray that his Kingdom come, his will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. I know there are millions upon millions doing so. And, of course, I owe the inspiration of this one to the words written in the ancient Holy Scriptures. Love, Peace & Happiness, Ben

Sometimes, I wonder????????

My Brother Ben, He is, no part of this world, we live in, yet, for thousands of years, he has told us this, through all the wars, and sins, brought on by the devil's heart and me. sad to say, I am one. Yet, in my heart, as I watch T.V. today, I say, I am not part of that, he has shown me the way. I will not kill, my brother, just to make country's ways, seem right. As I say this, again, on the T.V., I see another death, why?, so we can be free!!!!!! I hear my god, say, today, another warrior died, and why, did he die, hell, I don't know, as I eat my cheesburger and fries, at the local Dairy Queen. Geez, what am I talking about, we buried, my brother yesterday with honors and here, I am, eating a Cheesburger at the Dairy Queen. Where is our, soul, was it killed, long before planes flew into hell, well, you, know, what I mean. Sometimes I ask myself, where is the healer, where, is the better part of my life, that is me, as I eat, this cheesburger? -MV

Martin, you are not alone in...

Martin, you are not alone in wondering, I understand a lot of people are wondering and asking why. All those questions have their answers in the ancient Holy Scriptures. They beat CNN and Fox News to smitherines when it comes to truth! Now, I thank you for reading and responding to "His Kingdom Is No Part Of This World." I always do appreciate your comments and feedback, wheather it's on a funny or more serious note. Hasta La Broccoli Sprouts, Mi Amigo! Ben

No part of the world

Ben learned as did I, that humans are not fated nor created just to die. We learned the earth would last forever, it's fate not left to man who can't restore the life of even this beloved man. I pray the King that will one day rule the Earth remembers my friend Ben, When he resurrects the dead and walk in a paradise earth again.
