What is the "Pre-Wrath Rapture"?

Rev. Marvin Rosenthal knew that he would lose his job as director of “Friends of Israel Ministry” by publishing his book “The Prewrath Rapture of the Church” but he considered prophetic truth to outweigh his own personal and financial interest. How many Christian and Messianic leaders would sacrifice their livelihood for the sake of proclaiming the prophetic truth? Probably not many!

Greeting fellow believers in Christ my name is Lyle Davis. I didn’t come to Christ until I was almost 55 what a shame I wasted all those years. I found Jesus January 31st 2009.

The next day I wrote my poem Epiphany of Agape Love. I have truly been blessed by the Lord I always believed that "you reap what you sow" and treated everyone like I wanted to be treated. Boy was I surprised when I went to the Church of Hope in Sarasota Florida and found the true meaning of my being on this earth. My poems are Gods work, not mine and I give all glory to him for giving me this gift.  I hope you enjoy them.

8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by WORKS, so that no one can boast.

Ephesians 2


I was entangled in the world,

It was hard to see!

But since I’ve met Jesus,

There’s so much more for me!


I couldn’t see the Forrest,

For all of the trees.

Until I met Jesus,

And fell upon my knees!


I now know there is hope,

And I can surely see.

Because I spoke to Jesus,

And this he said to me.


Shout out to the world,

Let go of me.

I’ve given my body,

And my blood to Thee.


I’m now a changed man,

You can see it on my face.

And I know it comes from Jesus,

And his never ending grace.

Fisher’s of men


I have a friend

I know indeed

He’s always there

In times of need


He’s taught me how

Thru word and deed

That Christ’s love

Is all I need


I had hard times

He  knew it true

He likes to fish

And I do too


My life has changed

My time has come

As it is written

Thy will be done


Now we are

Fisher’s of men



I put the nails in his hands.

And I put the nail in his feet.


I pressed on his crown of thorns.

And used my spear to pierce his side.


My name is Lucifer.

And I will not hide.


I want you as my slave.

For money and or fame.


What ever you want,

It’s all the same.


I take the control,

You give me your soul.


What will it be?

Yes or no


God or me?

Oh I see.


God I’ll let this one free.

Because he has chosen thee.


There’s still so many more.

That hasn’t knocked on Christ’s door.


What will it be?

























I had an EPIPHANY the other day.

The LORD said to me,

AGAPE LOVE is the way!


You can have money and such.

But the love of the LORD,

It can not touch!


I had an EPIPHANY the other day,

the LORD said to me.

AGAPE LOVE is the way!


You can have the things of man,

but bring you to the LORD it won’t.

Try all you can.


I had an EPIPHANY the other day,

the LORD said to me.

AGAPE LOVE is the way!


Believe he died on the CROSS,

it will bring you to the LORD.

Worldly things your only loss.


I had an EPIPHANY the other day,

the LORD said to me.

AGAPE LOVE is the way!


He shed his blood for you and me.

Believe it son.

He will set you free!


I had an EPIPHANY the other day,

the LORD said to me.

AGAPA LOVE is the way!


Believe he cleansed your sin,

with all of your heart.

The devil he can’t win!


I had an EPIPHANY the other day,

the LORD said to me.

AGAPA LOVE is the way!


Agape is pronounced "ah-GAH'-pay".  It is a Greek word.  Found first in the biblical New Testament, agape expresses the spiritual, not physical, love of God for his people.   It is an unconditional love and concern for others.  Agape is a love that accepts everyone for who they are. This is the same love that God expressed for us through the death of Jesus Christ, His Son (1 John 4:9,10).   It is a selfless love.  Everyone has capacity for agape love.

Sense by Lyle Davis


If I was deaf I’d hear your voice.

If I was blind I’d see your face.


If I was mute I’d speak your name

If I was lame I’d walk in faith.


If I was numb I’d feel you grace.

If I was dead I’d know my place.


I gain my sense from being true.

Because these things all come from you.


Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Col 3:12



Talk is cheap we all know

But some do it even so


They tell your neighbor’s things untrue

When they do, it harms them too


If you deny the things they say

They just wink and say ok


So try and watch the words you speak

Nothing wrong with being meek


The words of a gossip are like choice morsels;
       they go down to a man's inmost parts. Proverbs 18:8



He accepted me, I was Bent and broken

He accepted me, not a word was spoken


He accepted me, never walked away

He accepted me, always there to stay


He accepted me, never turned to run

He accepted me, always called me Son


He accepted me, showed me the way

He accepted me, maker of each day


He accepted me, gave me life anew

He accepted me, know he isn’t thru


He accepted me, got my wheels on track

He accepted me, I must give back


He accepted me, what more can I say

He accepted me!!!


Genesis 4:7
If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right,

 sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it."



I know that there are Angels

Because I’ve met all three


One who’s name is Michael

A warrior is he


Uriel and Gabriel

The other two would be


They protect my family

From things we cannot see


I like that they watch over me

On land and on the Sea


I know that there are Angels

Because I’ve met all three


Psalm 91:10-12 (King James Version)

10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone



Jesus opened the eyes of my heart

They have given me a brand new start


I now see things as I should

Something that I never could


I view the world with vision renewed

It strengthens my love for the woman I wooed


They let me see that the love I have

Can be used as a healing salve


They let me know that there is hope

This gives me peace so I can cope


They’ve enlightened me to know the power

So that I will never cower


They will see me to the heavenly realms

Far above these earthly elms


Ephesians 1 18-19

18I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you,

 the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,19and his incomparably great power for us who believe.



My old friends have concern for me

Because of the changes they see in me


They say that I haven’t acquired enough

Of the things that I call worldly stuff


I tell them the Lord will provide for me

But they still just cannot see


I’ve been told I was always all in

But now the Lord has cleansed me of sin


The things I loved like money and such

The love of the Lord they can not touch


My old friends have concern for me

Because of the changes they see in me


Matthew 6:24 (mammon means the world and its riches)

No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other,

or he will hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.



You always must remember, to invoke the name of Jesus!

  Pray for things, with his kind of meekness.


You always must remember, to have complete faith they will happen.

Only Then, will your prayer he then fatten.


You always must remember, to make sure that it’s his will.

  Only then, your prayer he would fill.


You always must remember, to be specific of your request.

And always make sure, that you have truly confessed.


You must always remember, have a partner that does the same.

He always hears you, when two or more are gathered in his name.


You always must remember, to talk to him much.

Then he will surely, bless your prayer with his touch.


You always must remember, there are three types of prayer.

Repentance, Petition and Praise, and remember he is the weigher.


Matthew 6:5-6

5"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men.

 I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 6But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.

Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.




I have gone full circle, 360 degrees.

I’m no longer proud, now I’m on my knees.


I find myself in gatherings, distant and aloof.

Because, I no longer need any proof.


My highs now come, from the most high.

You can to, you just have to try.


I wish that when, I was 180 out.

God would have corrected me, with a shout.


But I now know, that is not his way.

He waited for me, to get to this day.


I’ve gone full circle now.

That is why, to only Him I bow.


Deuteronomy 5:8-10 (New International Version)


8 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.

9 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,

10 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.



I lost it all, or so it seemed.

It’s what Christ, my Lord had deemed.


He put me down, deep in the valley.

I think that he was keeping tally.


Would I continue, to go astray?

Or would it make, me go his way?


I’m climbing up, the mountain now.

And all I had to do was bow!


 Now I look forward, I don’t look back.

Because I know, all I’d see is black.


I learned a lot, in that deep valley.

I’m moving forward, and will not dally.


That’s why I write, the poems I do.

To try and make, your soul subdue!


1 Samuel 21:9 (New International Version)


9 The priest replied, "The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you killed in the Valley of Elah, is here; it is wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod.                                                                                                      If you want it, take it; there is no sword here but that one."  David said, "There is none like it; give it to me."



Prune my branches that bear you fruit.

Make my love much more acute.


Remove the ones that bear you not.

Because love they have not you brought.


May your pruning stimulate me to grow.

And cause agape love to flow.


Help me to always remain in the vine.

So I can be with you for all time.


John 15

The Vine and the Branches


1"I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. 12My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.




Jesus stand by me, be the eye of the storm.

Hold on to me tightly, and keep me safe and warm.


The lightning tries to hit me, with a blinding flash.

But I hang on, clinging tightly to your sash.


The thunder is so loud, that it hurts my ears.

But I’ll get thru it, following thru the years.


The hail it still hits me, and stings upon my flesh.

But that is what helps me, to always keep my faith fresh.


When the storm passes, things will get real still.

And I will still listen, for I know that is your will.


Luke 8:25

He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 25"Where is your faith?" he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, "Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him."



I hear the Lord, I know it is his will.

The first thing, is to have your mind be still.


The next thing is to, envision you in his presence.

Like the story of him, feeding the multitude of peasants.


I like to offer him, a cool drink at the well

And strike up a conversation, and in his words I dwell.


Then let the words, and visions, continuously flow.

Write them down, so you can test them and know.


You can to, if you follow this simple prose.

Remember, your heart, is unfolding like a rose.


Habakkuk 2:1-2


1 I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me,
       and what answer I am to give to this complaint.


The Lord’s Answer


2 Then the LORD replied "Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald b may run with it.


a Or and what to answer when I am rebuked

b Or so that whoever reads it




I’ll never be thirsty, I live on the Lord.

I will drink, for I’m all aboard.


Jesus said, the water I give, you will not thirst.

If you believe, and become immersed.


Will be like a spring, to eternal life.

Him I will follow, with much less strife.


I’ll never go hungry, I live on the Lord.

I will eat, for I’m all aboard.


Jesus said I have meat to eat.

When you eat, the meat is sweet!


My meat is to do, the will of him.

I’ll never go hungry, ever again.


Mark 1:14


14but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."


John 4:32/34


32But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you know nothing about."

33Then his disciples said to each other, "Could someone have brought him food?"

34"My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish His work




As I don the helmet of salvation

To do battle with an evil nation


And fasten the breastplate of righteousness

To spread the word just like Titus


Pull on tightly the belt of truth

For of the word I’ve become a sleuth


Always be ready with the gospel of peace

I’ll always keep talking and never cease


I must hold high the shield of faith

To deflect away any unholy wraith


I’ll swing hard the sword of the Spirit

And strive hard to never be tacit


Ephesians 6:13-17

The Armor of God


13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.



Meekness is not a weakness, as some would assume.

It’s a gift from Jesus, we should take to the tomb.


Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

It’s not what you have, that determines your worth.


Meekness is focused power, under Gods control.

It’s what controls the value, of your very soul.


Being meek shows the Lord, what is in your heart.

It’s the way the Lord makes us, from the very start.


We are called children of God, because they are so meek.

So remember that God said, to turn the other cheek.


Matthew 5:5
  Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.


Isaiah 61:1-2

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;




I find myself becoming like a child,

No longer resistant and wild.


I’ve removed the chains of unrepented sin,

And I’ve let the Lord come in.


I try to be much more repentant and meek,

But don’t mistake that for being weak.


Every day I try to be more humble,

But must admit I often stumble.


But Jesus said to be like a child,

No longer resistant and wild.


Matthew 18:1-4

At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" And Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."



The judge, I am not to be.

And I will always, obey Thee.


To condemn, is not part of your will.

Sometimes, that’s a bitter pill.


Forgive your trespassers, is what you said.

Into those waters, I will tread.


Give always freely, from your heart.

And then to God, you’ve done your part.


I know that these, are the teeth of the key.

That makes me very, pleasing to Thee.



Luke 6:37-38

(37) “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. (38) Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
