The Time Has Come

I think we know what’s going on. We are living the signs of the times. If we see it for what it is, and have been made right with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, and are living surrendered to the Holy Spirit, we will know where we stand, as the days commence with the purposes they contain. Please see the Scripture Reference at the end.

Nowhere to run –

that which must be has begun,

tares from wheat,

bitter from sweet,

chaff from grain,

sound of mind from all insane,

dross from gold,

It shall unfold –

wickedness from all that’s good,

stripped away like bark from wood,

dark from light, left from right , manifest, 

north from south and east from west,

what is cursed from what is blessed.

Murky gray begone from day!

You shall see – so it must be.

Lukewarm from hot, lukewarm from cold;

that long hidden must unfold,

coward false from true and bold

So it has been long foretold.

Don’t you know? Nowhere to go.

(See Matthew 13: 41-43)

Passionate Warrior

No longer fair of face or form,

a solitary, lonely guardian peers

into the gathering darkness;

while from the lonely, stony heights,

and braving the approaching storm,

the passionate warrior stands

and braves the biting winds and cold,

and feeling every fear, deciding to be bold.

With vicious, biting winds the onslaught comes

and stinging, icy, deadly rains;

yet stands he pierced, still firmly planted,

while renouncing countless wounds and pains.

A dark host follows on its heels,

a hoard of shadow, lightning, clouds, and thunders,

foreboding fierceness foul reveals all manner

of deceit and lying wonders.

Unyielding to appearances,

he from his post will not be put asunder,

for in the heights of glory knows he

where his spirit dwells –

in spite of anguish, sorrow,

or the devastations of a thousand hells.

The One Needful Prayer

Some people think it’s a cop out to pray a simple prayer like this. My thought is, if it was good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for me. Here are a few more considerations related to the idea:
