19 Fret not thyself because of evil men,

neither be thou envious at the wicked;

20 For there shall be no reward to the evil man;

the candle of the wicked shall be put out.

Proverbs 24:19-20 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

These days the wicked dance and strut around

As if they own the theater and the stage,

And evil men around the world are bound

To be so honored for their public rage.

Corruption is the norm; they shout amen

With flashy golden teeth and endless cash.

Fret not yourself because of evil men:

The day is coming soon their teeth shall gnash.

The wicked will not live to see the Son,

When angels fill the sky with righteous swords,

So don’t be envious of all this fun;

I tell you they will get their just rewards.

The candle of the wicked will be snuffed;

When darkness settles in they’ll be rebuffed.

5-21-15 Every Eye Shall See

2nd coming

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Revelation 1:7 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

Then like a thief at night will Jesus come,

Surprising all but those who are prepared,

And all with eyes to see will then become

To know that He is here, His presence bared.

The dead in Christ shall rise from in the ground;

The righteous all will know and so rejoice.

The terror of His enemies abound,

And they will wail and weep as if one voice.

He’ll come to judge the quick and judge the dead,

Including those who harmed the ones He chose.

His presence in the clouds will make some dread:

The final days are coming to a close.

Oh, how magnificent that day will be!

The Savior will return for all to see!

121014 Come Quickly!

bride-looking

Beloved, I’m prepared for Your return!

It’s time to trim the wicks; I have the oil.

You’ll be here any second; how I yearn!

The guests have all arrived, the low and royal

My Lord, the feast is set, the band is tuned!

The signs are showing that the time is near.

You’ll see that even nature’s so festooned!

Anticipation’s great, though not in fear.

I look upon the clouds where You will come!

Is this my feet arising from the ground?

I see Your light approach; the angels thrum!

Behold! I hear a distant trumpet sound!

Lord Jesus, in Your glory You arrive!

The wedding day is here! We are alive!

~~~~~~~~~~~

He which testifieth these things saith,

Surely I come quickly. Amen.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Revelation 22:20 KJV

10-21-14 The Lord’s Prayer 05b: For Ever

glory

O Father, all the kingdoms do You reign;

Both earth and heaven hearken to Your name,

And all Your sons and daughters are germane,

To worship You forever with acclaim.

You are onmipotent, O Abba God;

We turn to you with all our hopes and needs.

The grandeur of Your power leaves us awed,

And all creation serve in word and deed.

The honor and the glory go to You,

Deserving of our praise and even more;

No other one are we more grateful to,

For You alone are worthy to adore.

Your majesty we venerate again,

Forever and for ever and Amen!

~~~~~~~~~~~

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power,

and the glory,

for ever.

Amen.

Matthew 6:13 KJV
