Vast is the news on varying views of when Jesus Christ will return.
Pre-Trib belief is met with great grief from voices exceedingly stern.
There’s no way He could come today! They propose we must pass a test.
Imminence is seen as only a dream that declares escapism at best!

The Mid-Trib notion has set in motion one thousand two hundred eighty days,
Then the man of perdition will make his decision to flaunt his brazen ways.
The first 3˝ years will bring sorrow and tears to the eyes of many a saint,
But the outcome is grand for those who stand not allowing their faith to grow faint!

The Post-Tribber crowd will gibber aloud; we’ll have to face the bloodbath,
Reminding the sheep our faith must go deep to sustain the upcoming wrath.
The saints gone before they had to endure many a martyr’s death!
Why would this day be any other way? They shout while losing their breath.

Pre-Wrath is new to these varying views that proclaims a pragmatic path.
Since we’ve been spliced, in the body of Christ, we’re not appointed to God’s wrath!
Perhaps we’ll face the one fallen from grace til’ the Great Tribulation commences,
And then it’s full on; the battle lines drawn; God will break down Satan’s defenses!

I've never read a doctrinal poem that engages the mind in this sort of debate - and made it rhyme - interesting. Good job on a controversial topic.

Haha, I must admit when I first saw this I thought 'oh no, an end times controversy'. But it was very well executed, entertaining with a slight hint of tongue and cheek to it all (or is that just me). Never seen controversial doctrine so well presented. You never gave away your view which is what made it non threatening. Well done.

A very well put together and thought out poem on views of the end of time. Perfect flow, meter, and rhyme. Very well done, I say!

Very clever intertwining of doctrinal stances, withthe ultimate inference that Jesus doesn't need our advice on the best time for his return. Well done.

Very clever poem, which at first glance seems to lean towards the "pretrib" view of Christ's second coming (since that belief is the one that gets the grief).

Yet in the end you choose the "pre-wrath" path, which sums up your message nicely.

One line did leave me a bit perplexed at first: "Since we've been spliced, in the body of Christ..." When I see the word "spliced," it makes me think "severed," which conjures up images of a "spliced up" church. Though it's probably a mute point, I think "spliced into" might work better since your main goal is obviously to bring unity rather than division to believers.

All in all, nice job with this, and thanks for a needed message.
