Kingdom of God “is at hand.”
Nearness, though, in stages.
John the Baptist’s repent warning, phase one:
Christ, God’s suffering servant,
Anointed Messiah, Father’s only begotten
Clothed with humanity Son,
Rejected, betrayed, crucified Lamb who’s resurrected.
Revealed, glorified Son of Man,
Returns triumphant King of Kings,
Lord of Lords,
Descending on cloud,
Bringing host of saints from Heaven to Earth.
His beautiful Gospel carrying feet
Split Mount Olives,
Ushering in Kingdom of God, really “is at hand”;
Phase two: fully manifesting after
Horrific seven-year Tribulation’s
Rapid increase in labor pains
Cease from troubling.
Second Coming sneaks up on church-players,
Catches them off guard, living in
Spiritual darkness, baring spiritual nakedness.
While stripped of all supernatural
Power, authority, discernment, they stand before their
Creator, uncovered; guilty of
Compromising God’s Divine Truth with
World’s repulsive, duplicitous, seductive,
Misogynous, misanthropic, depraved imaginations that now
Infect the music, print, motion picture, broadcast, and
Electronic communications’ brands…causing
Greedy for gain pursuits to become
Strongholds ‘til perverse activities are
Tolerated business as usual,
Instead of shunned ungodly habits.
The evil ways of the world steadily
Drown out contemporary prophets’
“Prepare to meet God” warnings ‘til
Get-ready time is spent.
Divine Judgment’s hour for
Church-players and the unyielding unsaved,
Already is closing in.
Now is the time to sorrowfully repent and
Cry: “Lord, save a wretch like me.”
