6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, 7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Revelation 14:6-7 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Behold! Those great and fearful days will come,

The tribulation of those left behind,

Without the Holy Ghost to then become

Convicted of the Truth as so defined.

The Gospel will be spread to everyone

In every tongue that dwells upon the earth,

Salvation by the blood of Christ the Son,

As God so loved the world to bring rebirth.

The choice must then be made to choose the Lord,

To worship Him that made the universe,

Or so remain among the heathen horde

And so be judged with death and even worse.

Fear God! The angel cried across the land,

Choose now behind which banner you shall stand!

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: Come to the cross now without delay!

11-27-15 Return Unto Your Rest

under the stars

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

Psalm 116:7 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

When all the work and play of day is done,

The dishes washed, the children laid in bed,

Reflect upon the struggles and the fun,

The things you didn’t do or done instead,

Return unto your rest, my weary soul:

The Lord has dealt so bountifully with you.

His grace has carried you from role to role,

His love a shining light the whole day through.

Despite your tribulation He’s been here

Within the very center of your heart.

You’ll never be alone, no need to fear;

Relax, my soul: the Savior won’t depart.

Tomorrow comes too soon; for now just rest.

The stars are bright tonight and you are blessed.

10-24-14 Overcome

Christ Overcame the World

The closer you become to Christ the King

The more the world will persecute and hate,

And yet you’ll find these tribulations bring

A sense your sufferings are worth the wait.

With boldness share the gospel far and wide;

Tell all the world what Jesus came to do,

And worry not, He’s always by your side;

He’s overcome the world, and you will, too.

The Savior proved that He had conquered death;

He’ll be there with you when it comes your time,

And all your pain will leave with that last breath;

Eternity awaits – it’s so sublime!

No matter what you you go through in this place,

The faith you have in Christ will bring such grace.

~~~~~~~~~~~

In the world ye shall have tribulation:

but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 16:33 KJV

6-10-14 Tarry

tarry

When You return with shout of acclamation

to gather up Your own

before the inevitable storm

so many will remain

their eyes wild with searching

their hearts crying out

“I should have believed!”

Beloved, please leave me here.

Let me linger among the lost

as a bellwether of hope

a pale moon circling the land

in darkness

reflecting Your light.

Let me show them how You suffered

how You interceded

how You love.

Use me as a scrub brush

to scour burnt remnants

from the bottom of the pan.

Those who break free

will make it worth this tarrying.

They will already be gathered

in Your house

like late passengers to the station

even as the final echoes

of joyful praise

whisper in their hungry ears.

Strike me as a match

that this brief flame

the faint scent of sulphur

might bring a precious few

to the altar of complete surrender.

Keep me here, Lord

among the devastation

as long as You need.

Whatever it takes.

Whatever it takes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

“For at that time there will be great tribulation,

the kind that hasn’t taken place from the beginning of the world

until now and never will again!”

Matthew 24:21 (HCS)
