Encounter (on a busy sidewalk) a busy city sidewalk crowded, elbow to elbow on every face is shown pressure mounting higher, higher streets full of cars jostling for position under each red light this caravan of busy reaching out of sight noisy cacophony of impatient horns But yet, into This man-made Mess of madness A sense of peace, True Destiny, Walks with us Side by side On each busy street & sidewalk Unseen, but not Unfelt He walks In His royal robe Searching, looking Passing by Among us Longing to touch Each heart Desiring to give Reveal, impart Himself A better life Temporarily out of Sight But sensed In that small breeze That touches Your skin Ruffles the edges Of your heart Look up New life begins At the edge of The old As your King Walks past In the crowd Let him win Without any doubt Yourself Without a sound Or shout He will give to you More than a busy Sidewalk’s chaos Let him come, refresh As only Christ can do & give to you A better life anew!

Revelation 7:9-10 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water’, and ‘God will wipe away every tear from their eyes’.
Still Walking The world Is dead But up & Still walking Around Working, Playing They sound Alive But. . . Without Christ God, their Father Anyone like That Is dead Already In their heads, Hearts, Denying their God They just don’t know it. So many living Without Christ So spiritually, totally Dead So Sad But, with that said, should we not warn Them? To keep them from: The outer darkness, Weeping, wailing Gnashing of teeth Worms that never Die Fire that is never Quenched More than just Once These things Are described Prophets, Christ Himself, Not to be denied Said out of love For Us It is our Responsibility To Warn Not with a tongue So glib But with Loving Hearts & Words As Christ Himself Did Out of His Great Love For Us He warned As you would Warn any child Its hand to keep, Avoid, Not to seek That deadly fire & its Unspeakable Pain.
Matt. 13:49 -50 This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the blazing furnace where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mark 9:47-49 And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell where,
the worms that eat them do not die
and the fire is not quenched
Everyone will be salted with fire.
Isaiah 66:24 And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.”
