I feel afraid.
The fear of respect of its vastness,
its crushing power.
When I look at it I stop and reflect:
"You rule over the raging sea;
When its waves surge, you calm them."
This calms me.
Imagine caught in the midst of that--
"The end is near!" you feel is a fact.
As pounding surf against wooden frame
makes you call on a higher name.
Its strength and force flutter your soul
you hold on tight and ride it high
exhilarated, yet afraid you'll die
as this salty bath prepares your body
for a watery grave.
Like Jonah, tangled in seaweed and mire,
do you picture yourself,
if only you can avoid his sharp teeth--
those of the large shark.
Do you think yourself thin as he swallows you in?
In hopes that he just scratches your surface,
the very top layer of your delicate skin?
Did Jonah have that moment to ponder
like Peter did when he felt himself going under?
A thinking man leaves nothing to chance.
He makes his plans. Some even pray.
Peter didn't need to that day. He just had to cry out,
to say: "Lord, save me!"
to another commanding awesome waters, in the image of his Father.
He: "stirs up the sea with his power, and by his understanding he breaks the sea monster to pieces."
Reasons to lift your eyes upward, to perceive and receive His presence as a blanket of comfort; a protection within against fear of men.
For I read repeatedly of how this Son rebuked thrashing waters in imitation of our Creator, when beside him as a master worker, he saw Him "set a decree for the sea that it's waters should not pass beyond his order."
So, again, when I stare in amazement at the sea, appreciating the borders he instilled in them to safeguard mankind,
I feel afraid.
The fear of respect
for His powerful ways.
it speaks to me
of the One
who is invisible.
Based on: Psalm 89:9; Jeremiah 31:35; Matt. 14:24-32; Proverbs 8:29
The Millennium, start counting after marriage of the Lamb. For He's a King now reigning, though his enemies ruin the land. But this tragedy is ending and peace earthwide he'll restore. We know this cause of prophecy of the 'last days' and prediction of global wars, pestilence and anger, widespread famine and enmity, haughtiness and love of money, surely you can't disagree with what you see: this sign of one world ending. And another to begin. Raise your heads all you of nations, clap your hands you humble men and women grateful. For salvation is at hand!
The Devil's facing jail time, 1,000 years to be exact. And God's initial purpose for the universe and man will finally be in tact, after His Last War impending removes all who oppose his rule. His Kingdom from heaven established will man perfect. It would be fool- ish to resist this beautiful arrangement based on love. Although, a majority are stubborn, supporting Satan. No wiser than Balaam's mule who recognized an angel God appointed as a tool.
During this appointed time glorious everyone will have a place. A land producing plenty. And stresses totally released. Minds will be cleansed of badness. Hearts will be refined too. The work done there enjoyable, as intelligence, each personal, is used to work everyone together. As villages, or townships whose purpose is to glorify their Creator and his Son who both demonstrated Great love and sacrifice for all who chose obedience to Jehovah the Almighty from above.
Precious light--Divine favor Total gone. No more. Congealed. Entire earth affected. Bodies mounted into hills. Their flesh rotted while they stood. Eyes in socket decayed too. Tongues decomposed in fury. Blind and mute in death their due. The scourge devoured madly Destroying all wicked kinds. Violent hands against brothers This last war left good behind.
Now living waters will quench the thirst for justice pouring forth throughout a cleansed earth where now restored mankind and all those resurrected will live in peace together, learning what skills they possessed since birth. For time is of no essence as beautiful they will continue to be. No more sickness. No more madness. Advancement? Yes. Still being made in technology. For our King and his dear Father, who lives for eternity will make sure that humans are happy since now liberated from Death. NOW free!

if i were God

through the lines of my bipolar expressed fury, my flashes of anger zapping mercilessly all self-exalting false stars obliterating all my light and holiness, my name camouflaged in their dark rituals glorifying then sacrificing my creation heavens beyond my actual existence...
then in my abrupt sadness I'd flood the universe with pockets of salty dew dripping onto you(s) for causing such misery
one upon each other, brothers, I created, but you torment through sordid actions and caustic words,
always words, only words vocalized into poisoned air shared yet rationed--oxygen for those insured as if life is for the favored,
as long as you can command a room with your boasts and you exist to fill space with the sounds of varied arrogance, of your wealth, your beauty, your bust, your booty, your tortured wounds self-inflicted, through booze or other substance abuse;
while silence slips from the real victims in earth premature--for they knew not compassion
so empathy would from them seep
so deep that a future sprouting love could only grow, maybe...
their thoughts their brains would really hold black not golden gems, maybe they'd wield a wicked whip
against the naked flesh of their oppressors
be thee teachers, bosses, parents, whoever manipulated their emotions, their flesh, their dreams into nightmares, their love into perverted lusts or hatred against themselves
maybe it's best their stress left them
in the peace of death
as the living race daily to nothingness, overstepping my regulations as if i were the one unworthy
yes...this words imperfectly penned amplify the whys
of me not being God for he is love and although he expresses righteous anger his mercy transcends our tainted minds, our constricted thoughts, our calloused hearts
i thank God for his patience, knowledge, his wisdom and for me ultimately, his justice, for honestly as a god I wouldn't know where to start
"For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world's creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable." Romans 1:20.
