Of technological boom, nuclear race—
Babylon rising, revolts underway,
Nations and peoples in mad disarray,
While they tout ‘people-power’ (mob rule I say);
We need to consider what power’s at play.
Amassing of weapons and rumours of war,
Terrorist threatenings from nations afar,
Jackboot formations saluting in sync,
Tyrants and thugs place the world on the brink—
Big budget defence— economies shrink—
Behind the scenes lurks an ominous link.
Angels of light and false prophets deceive;
God’s revealed truth most no longer believe;
They prefer teachings that tickle the ear;
Spin and the hype that they constantly hear
Dumbs down their brain with a shallow veneer
Preparing their minds for brainwashing I fear.
Rumours of life on new far away stars—
Some are proposing one way journeys to Mars!
Extravagant notions born of the lie
Searching for life while life passes them by—
Delusion’s the fruit when God’s truth they deny—
By name He has placed every star in the sky.
Beware of putting your trust in a man—
One’s yet to come with a sinister plan;
This is the era of sin and the curse
And only through Jesus can it be reversed;
Don’t let your mind by the world be coerced—
In God’s Word alone your thoughts be immersed.
There’s an era to come--an era of peace—
Righteousness rules and all conflicts will cease,
Christ on the throne—The Millennial reign—
Heir of King David then ruling again
Makes Jerusalem, His earthly domain,
For one thousand years as God has ordained.
Era of faith, of salvation, of grace,
Glories of Heaven believers foretaste,
Watching and waiting Christ to appear,
Signs of the times make it clear He is near,
Nothing and no one, we ever need fear,
Anticipating—I wish He were here!
