New Creations



God makes a new Heaven and earth,
Former things will not come to mind;
That is giving life a new birth,
As the past will no longer find.

Rejoice in what He does create,
Creates Jerusalem with joy;
A new Zion that will be great,
That no one will ever destroy.

He is glad in Jerusalem,
Rejoicing about His people;
Because He will never condemn,
Those who worship in His temple.

Heard no more the sound of weeping,
Nor hearing the cry of distress;
A relief after their sleeping,
Awaken by God who did bless.

No more will there be abortions,
Elder people no longer die;
Only sinners have convictions,
Because of they did cheat and lie.

They dwell in houses that they built,
Planting vineyards and eat their fruit;
Being righteous having no guilt,
No longer having a dispute.

Sinners shall not build nor to dwell,
Planting none in order to eat;
Because their new home will be hell,
The Lord forces them to retreat.

For as of the days of a tree,
Live as the days of His people;
Will be fruitful by His decree,
Soaring higher than a steeple.

They shall never labor in vain,
Nor bear children by mistake;
For their offspring shall feel no pain,
But a treasure not to forsake.

As you are speaking, He will hear,
The wolf and lamb graze together;
All His creatures laud and revere,
For worshipping as they gather.

Richard Newton Sherrer

I was born and raised on a farm in Pennsylvania. It was a small family farm that was handed down through 8 generations of Sherrer men until my father; Newton just could not make a living from it any longer. He thought that I would make a better living away from the farm. So, I decided to join the Air Force in 1969 upon graduating from high school. I gained quite a bit of experience and insight on life while in the service. Even though I was only stationed on the east coast of the US, my Air Force career took me to Germany and Korea. After 20 years wearing of the blue uniform, I decided going in a different direction and found myself becoming very diverse in many different fields. Something still seemed missing to me after being separated from the service for about 10 years. The Air Force was a way of life for me, but really missed life in Korea. I found myself changing careers again. Poetry was an interest of his since my days in high school. With returning to the Lord, I felt motivated to write of my Christian beliefs. I started looking at Bible verses and reflecting on my own personal experiences. The Bible was found to be as true today as to when the various books were written. I could see much of what the Bible is teaching us as valid as every in modern time. It felt only natural to me on using his personal experience based on Bible verses and see much of my own life written in the Scriptures. God inspires me what to write about though. I do not claim to be an expert on God or the Bible. I am just a Christian who has become enlightened to write poetic verses from the Holy Scriptures. more…
