Posts Tagged ‘Fullness of the time’

In “fullness of the time,” Paul’s pen

(Whither bird quill, or “whittled” reed)

Accurately scratched on the sheepskin;

God sent His Son for mankind’s need.

Sent Him, Who had agreed to come,

Arriving without trump or drum.

2

His timing was right, have no doubt,

Though four millennia had fled,

Since Adam and wife were cast out,

(To provide coats, animals bled.)

God made time, so knows its order;

(Though owns time, He is no hoarder.)

3

The Greeks had spread their language ‘round

The Mediterranean “lake.”

The Romans had made roads abound;

These provisions were no mistake.

His Son’s coming, and His Good News

Could be spread to Gentiles and Jews.

4

This same Jesus is coming back.

That is truth, the true church has known.

(The world knows “something” big’s on track.)

“Harvest” is coming for sin sown.

Cheating, inflation, wrongs, and war:

For all these, judgment is in store.

5

A false Christ will also appear.

“He’ll not say, ‘I’m the antichrist.’” [1]

Deception – Christ warned us to fear.

The devil will many souls heist.

False “christians,” he’ll fool by the ton.

(They had rejected the true Son.)

6

Christ’s coming’s as sure as the first.

He’s coming as King of the world.

Does this truth make you hunger/thirst?

His Victor Flag will be unfurled.

His birth, death, rising, coming reign,

Are welcome to a world – insane.

7

“Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” [2]

This time also, exactly right.

(Let “prophecy charts” burn, be diced)

Read the Book. See the warning light.

Christ, antichrist, both come apace.

Make sure you KNOW Christ’s Voice and Face.
