Smear Campaign

 
 
 Smear Campaign
  
 A smear campaign,
 A dark, thick smoky
 Cloud
 From eons ago
 From the beginning
 Hoping it would be 
 Winning
  
 Against Heaven’s 
 Throne
 Against the Holy
 One
 At first this cloud
 Merely a slight stench
 But 
  
 Today,
 There is a mighty
 Fist clenched
 Around the throats
 Of man
 An evil hand
 Works against the sons,
 Daughters of man
 Worldwide
  
 Grown stronger
 Only because we
 Have lingered
 To listen to its voice
 At its gates longer
 Than we should
  
 Telling us we 
 Are only physical
 Only the natural
 Exists
 This naturalism
 Fighting to form
 A schism
 Between man
 And His Creator
  
 It’s goal 
 Is to destroy
 All efforts
 To acknowledge
 Man has
 a soul
 Eternal, unending
 Ageless
  
 To Smear, slander
 God’s holy family
 Point out its flaws
 Of which it has many
 Still under Christ’s hand
 It struggles forward
 At His command
 To love His world
  
 So the great destroyer
 Entices 
 Uses our vices, 
 To draw man in
 To this ancient battle
 satan knows
 he cannot win
  
 destroy everything
 spiritual
 a worldwide campaign
 in a sense
 literal
 using our worldly
 lusts
 those great two
 Money, Power
 as the world
 spins toward
 a darker hour
  
 powers that be
 are blinded
 cannot see
 they are being used
 & very abused
 to try to bring about 
 a kingdom’s 
 end
  
 As I glance upward
 To the skies
 Using our greatest weapon
 A prayer begins
 Within my heart I cry
 As the battle around me
 Intensifies

Still Walking

 
 
 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.”

Day & Night

 

Day & Night

Our world exists

2 sides to the coin

One side lives in light, sun

As the other slumbers

In darkness

 

So it will be when

Our King returns

For that holy day

All who love him

Should deeply yearn

 

Some will be given the

Joy of light forever

Others in dark pain will

Be in weeping, wailing

Gnashing of teeth

As they run for cover

 

Where the worms

Never die

Fire is never quenched

Words from a book

That never lies

 

Before it is too late

As Christ flings open

Heaven’s gates

Stands and knocks

 

Let Him in

Replace your sin

With obedience

Join in the frolicking

As you receive

Your first glance

Of His great and

Mighty return

 

Mark 9:48 where the worms that eat them do not die and the fire is not quenched. NIV
