war on earth

ďAnd there was war in heaven. Michael and His angels fought against the dragon,
and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough,
and they lost their place in heaven.Ē Ė Revelation 12:7, 8 NIV

The devil started war on earth
When Eve and Adam ate the fruit.
That serpent did not tell the truth:
He wanted them to doubt Godís worth.

Though Adam tried to blame Miss Eve,
The two had disobeyed Godís rule.
Their lives could not again be cool,
For they had sadly been deceived.

Because of Satanís big, fat lie,
The pair was from the Garden sent
Till they were ready to repent:
The soul that sins shall surely die!

Although the sin that Adam did
Distresses people everywhere,
Forgiveness waits for those who hear:
Do not the things that God forbids!
