These days are marked by great upheaval
Nations raging left and right
While legislating rampant evil
(Opposing forces weak and feeble)
Men make darkness into light.
With states aligning as predicted
By the seer Ezekiel,
And though this Scripture long conflicted
With the 'brave new world' depicted
Time has proved he's spoken well.
We're often told in Scripture's pages
To be watching for the signs
But with the passing of the ages
Men put more trust in worldly sages
Than in God or 'signs of times'.
Momentous things now consummated
Backing Scriptures long foretold,
Long scattered nation relocated
( A people hunted, harried, hated)
Moses prophesied of old.
Jerusalem's the epicentre
Where all nations meet their fate,
There, every foe and God-dissenter
Will, by the leading of the tempter
Meet their end on God's due date.
My expectation is the Rapture
Not the Antichrist's advent;
My understanding is from Scripture
And not from reason or conjecture;
It's a day that's imminent.
I'm watching, waiting, all excited;
Soon my Saviour will appear,
The saints of ages rise united
Their everlasting hope requited--
Fig tree blooming--Christ is near!
