 In the Beginning
 Chronicle  I
  
  
 In the beginning there
 Was nothing outside of Heaven
 So, in the beginning
 God decided
 To create
 For Himself
 A World
  
 He hummed, “You know, Son
 We have so much to share
 Of kindness
 Love, joy
 Sometimes I feel
 Like
 I might explode
 Or implode
 I cannot hold
 It all in
 any longer.”
  
 So with a whirl
 And a twirl
 And a small jiggle
 Or was it a wiggle
 God created
 His earth.
   
 Gleaming, shining 
 With life
 It glowed
 Just to show
 Its Creator’s Glory, 
 This story of 
 His Love
 Slowly, He stroked
 With one gentle hand
 The lion’s mane.
 “Look, it’s heart beats
 I think I just
 Might keep 
 This one.
 But you know what 
 I think I need me
 A Man.”
  
 “What is a man, Father?”
 “Just watch.”
 He blew on the dust
 And with one single thrust
 Of one finger
 He raised him from the ground.
  
 God smiled.
 Happy, pleased and joyful,
 He turned to his newest son,
 “Welcome to life, Adam,
 And this,
 Your new Paradise!”
  
  
  
   

Fire

 
 
 Fire
  
 Climbing these marble steps
 Approaching your throne
 Is like coming to the edge
 Of a deadly, roaring fire
 Yet, like the moth
 Myself I cannot stop
 Ecstasy, bliss to be consumed
 Within your fire!
  
 The energy your put forth
 It has eternal worth
 Heaven’s very light
 Shining rich & bright
  
 Your Fire!
 Too close & I will die
 But again, I long, I sigh
 To live within its flames! 

Eze 1:27: from his waist up he looked like glowing metal as if full of fire and that from there down he looked like fire;. . brilliant light surrounded him.

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

Psalm 150

Praise the Lord

Praise God in His sanctuary
praise Him in His mighty 
heavens
Praise Him for His 
acts of power
praise Him for His surpassing
greatness
praise Him with the sounding of
the trumpet
praise Him with the harp and
lyre
praise Him with timbrel and dancing
praise Him with the strings 
and pipe
praise Him with the clash of cymbals
praise Him with resounding
cymbals

Let everything that has breath
praise the Lord

Praise the Lord

I just thought this was good way to start off the day after Christmas Day. Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas, that everyone stayed safe. May God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit bless and guide your day today.

First True Renaissance (Recreation)

  
 First True Renaissance
 (Re-creation)
  
 After a dark period
 It is told in books
 There was a Renaissance,
 Reformation, 
 a Recreation,
 Of culture, societies
 Even of Religion
  
 But I will argue
 It had already occurred
 At an earlier date
 before those books’ words
 Told of it.  On a cross 
 in a small back country,
 Judea
  
 An explosion 
 Unseen but felt
 After one 
 insignificant carpenter
 Was crucified 
 Because he testified
 To a new way of life
  
 Born in blood, 
 sweat & tears
 Why? satan has no peer
 For evil destruction
 His desperation 
 Was showing
  
 A new world,
 Kingdom,
 New way of living
 Was ushered in
 For all who would choose
 Their life to lose
 Inside of His
  
 Built upon a 
 Foundation of the old
 Refined, purified
 Like the rarest of golds
 For the sake of man
 He took our hand
 And led us to 
 His cross
  
 Meant for all
 Not just a few
 A new earth order
 If you choose
 Of faith, belief
 So on that Day
 And in that way
 His new earth kingdom 
 Started.
  
 Change has 
 Happened
 Time for it 
 To spread
 To all places
 For the good
 Of all faces
  
 Death defeated
 satan exposed
 for the liar he is
 time for the world
 to know
 it can change,
 grow,
 because 
 Christ says so! 
  
 Do not have to wait
 For a distant heaven
 New kingdom life
 Is now for the taking
 Now is the time
 for the slaking
 Of our undiminished
 Need for God
  
 For every man,
 Woman, child
 To take us out of our wild
 Unruly state he found in us
 Return to us His paradise for all
 Please I beg of you,
 do not refuse
 His holy, righteous call!
