The End Is Near
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

The End Is Near

 

With end times just around the bend

Harassment’s ever near

Freedom of speech will shortly end

Causing dread and fear

 

Persecution will soon increase

Evil will wear a crown

The whole wide will find no peace

Through churches closing down

 

Secret places will doubtless thrive

Many will seek to hide

Others who’ll hope to stay alive

By casting faith aside

 

Compulsive rules will come to stand

Millions will choose to die

Refusing ‘the mark’ on brow or hand

Rejecting God on high

 

Hunger will ravage everywhere

Denouncements will be rife

For daily bread will grow so rare

And cheap will be one’s life

 

For this and more one must prepare

Doubtless these things will be

Living dying seeking to share

God’s love eternally

 

Soon Jesus’ Cloud we’ll see on high

Trumpets will sing life’s song

But woe to those who’s lamp’s grown dry 

Who’s faith is far from strong 

 

Refuse to walk the devil’s path

Consider Heaven’s Way

Believe in God escape the wrath

Through Jesus Christ today…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
