Desire not what is evil,
That are pleasures of the devil;
And never worship a false god,
That would cause you to become flawed.
Some people go out for to eat,
As they try to become discreet;
But as an illicit affair,
An intimate moment they share.
We should not sexually sin,
Get more spiritually discipline;
The body is no longer pure,
To violate with such a chore.
Twenty-three thousand died one day,
When wanting to sexually stray;
I will not go detail the facts,
They performed some immoral acts.
In all things try to do your best,
Never put the Lord to the test;
Like the ones killed in handling snakes,
Overconfidence that it takes.
Do not ever try to complain,
Or take the name of God in vain;
The angel of death may take you,
To the lake of fire to view.
These things have happened to others,
Some of your sisters and brothers;
They are written as a warning,
Not occur to you some morning.
For we are in the final days,
And must change our evil ways;
For some it is a mystery,
In the last days of history.
Many have pride and are so bold,
Not listening to what is told;
Remaining firm and standing tall,
Thinking that they will never fall.
When tempted merely walk away,
Let it not entice you to stray;
Power to resist comes from God,
Flee to Him to honor and laud.
