Tears Filled The Beard

I feel what the Father feels
Important to know how to
Something to do with faith, grace, love, and hope put together into a neat package1
Otherwise I may feel
That the anger is directed toward me
When in fact it is not
It is directed toward all the Earth

Alas, the Father has made known His Fury
But concerning the Earth and her rage
The Father has let go of His Authority over her
You are all on your own with her now
I can continue relenting wrath forever
Drinking this cup is easy for me
However
It is more of an account
Of how much the Father can take from all this
There will come a time
When He will open His Mouth wide
To bellow from silence itself
So you will all hear Him clear
Enough!
A third of the people on the earth
Will perish from the mere shock upon hearing His Voice
With but a single breath from His Mouth

And ALL of the stars from Heaven will fall
And ALL the light will be taken from the world
Before He must enforce Divine Law
By stripping the Authority from the hands of the devil
And place it into the hands of the ones chosen by the Father

But the devil is crafty
He manipulates you in ways you never knew
Centuries of this hacking away at the lives of God and His people


1
A host that leaps
Into a mouth received
Is a delight and a joy
For both of us
But leave us without His Blood…

So He must nourish us by grace and does
In the Heart fed by the living water that is He
My Lord, Jesus Christ who is My Beloved

Poisoned

We are at peace still
Despite the cup of wrath
Still filling up fast
That last cup I drank
Was poisoned…

By a brood of vipers
Spitting their venom into it
Behold, their jaws will lock
And can never bite
For poison has no effect on us

Progressively …

Such great steps towards unity
But you are still stubbornly divided
On matter and time

I saw another Word of Fire forming
But before it could blast forth from my mouth
My Heart melted in the rain of your love
Your pupils deeper than the pools above
I looked backward and forward
I saw and felt the crowd
Wishing I was there
Your love would have set me on fire
And mine would have brought the rain

On That Day

On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem:
Do not fear, O Zion
Let not your hands grow weak
The Lord God is in your midst
A warrior who gives victory
He will rejoice over you with gladness
He will renew you in his love
He will exult over you with loud singing
As on a day of festival

I will remove disaster from you
So that you will not bear reproach for it
Behold, at that time I will deal
Will all your oppressors
And I will save the lame
And gather the outcast
And I will change their shame into praise
And renown in all the earth

At that time I will bring you home
At the time when I gather you together
Yea, I will make you renowned and praised
Among all the peoples of the earth
When I restore your fortunes
Before your eyes
Says the Lord

Zephaniah 3:16-20

Mirroring

I stumbled as I walked
I wavered with every step
His steps mirroring mine or mine mirroring his
I could not tell whose was which
It gets blurry after years go by
That way we took was hard
It took
So much
From me and Him
And you

It hurts how much..
It hurts how much was lost
And how much blood continues to flow
For no sake at all…

My eyes a fountain
Streaming blood and water like a weeping tile
Next to the river of life I weep
I weep because of the loss..

I weep as does He
Why do you do this to Him?!

O Sirach

Then the prophet Elijah arose like a fire
And his word burned like a torch
He brought a famine upon them
And by his zeal he made them few in number
By the word of the Lord he shut up the heavens
And also three times brought down fire
How glorious you were O Elijah in your wondrous deeds!
And who has the right to boast which you have?
You who raised a corpse from death and from Hades
By the Word of the Most High
Who brought kings down to destruction
And famous men from their beds
Who heard rebuke at Sinai
And judgments of vengeance at Horeb
Who anointed kings to inflict retribution
And prophets to succeed you
You who were taken up by a whirlwind of fire
In a chariot with horses of fire
You who are ready at the appointed time
It is written
To calm the wrath of God before it breaks out in a fury
To turn the heart of the father to the son
And to restore the tribes of Jacob
Blessed are those who saw you
And those who have been adorned in love
For we also shall surely live

Sirach 48:1-11
