except in night's rhythmic tranquil form.
Stars gently guided lids to slowly dip
till each new day's rebirth enlightened hungry eyes
raised to receding shadowy un-hafted horizons undefined.
A spoken spite did ignite bites to bitterness conceive
in hidden caverns breeding death through cancerous disease-
a spreading blight to kill first slowly though thoroughly eternal delights.
Heavenly dreads then groans when words of envy deceived an innocent one
thrusting aside loyalty, trust, respect, even love for dripping lust; thieving greed.
Universally astonished screams, possibly, as another's traitorous chews ensued.
Begetting an atmosphere of gloom plus doom consuming the universe,
as an once angelic son reborn demon seemingly dishonorably won
hearts, minds in treachery's deceit. Was righteousness defeated?
Succeeding for centuries: surging bloody waterfalls drenching
all, especially the sad, blind, seemingly spineless souls
sacrificed endlessly in satanic revelries boldly cold.
Diminished: morals, ignorantly destroyed; void?
A majority's desire for an endless joyful life
by following a beckoning Light into which
this darkness cannot resist. Though,
this world tragically prefers
a dense darkness
"All things... that you want men to do to you,
you also must do to them."
This today we should hum in hymn
after first digesting this tasty gem.

or solely alone,

if knocks or ringing of my phone
interrupted my solitude,
my games of glee,
or my mere apathy?
"What do you want?...
Who bussed you in;
gave you the key
to open the gate and harass me?
I have my own;
am fine as I am.
What you have
I think is cult or scam!"
"I am sorry to pause your time; it's just in your interest I did climb your steps to seek you out.
The message is good; I'd love to shout!
But, it can also be bad
to those not hearing. Since an exterminator is arriving;
to do a thorough clearing

Eliminate all that

I am sure you're not as one of these.

To give them hope of justice soon
Our Creator admonishes us to happily impart.
To tell them of this Grand Master's Plan:
His "Day of Judgement"

For these dear ones to

"A Great Tribulation"
So all sincere worshippers must gather together to survive;

Since His commandments, a stench, they cannot abide.

And if any adhere

But if chosen not:
an eternal grave

Yet, if I do not ring the bell

for not showing true love or empathy.
So may I leave you with this thought

Or close your ears;

to the proclamation
once to faithless Israelites made:
“I will cause distress to mankind,” says Jehovah God, “and they will certainly walk like blind men; because it is against Jehovah that they have sinned. And their blood will actually be poured out like dust, and their bowels like the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them in the day of Jehovah’s fury; but by the fire of his zeal the whole earth will be devoured, because he will make an extermination, indeed a terrible one, of all the inhabitants of the earth.”

as with an extermination that occurs,

No future desires that exist in me. No innocent can I be;
though my wish was to just run; to climb trees. Temporarily. A little girl. A teenager. A young woman.
A little boy. A teenager. A young man.
Free to develop distinct personalities.
Not have to concentrate on how to escape hungry or angry he or she's thinking that I was planted solely for them to enjoy
then toss like an apple core, roadside garbage,
to seed in an environment not designed for sweet apples to grow.
The seeds are trampled or blown away with no roots to firmly stand; to demand a place; to command a space. To take part in a normal race for betterment without the chains of a stigma:
sad or angry mental victim.
Raised with a belligerent rage seething beneath as a silent volcano. One day to erupt, but too late to be against the perpetuators of this hate.
Though, exist not a lack of perpetuators against others sown without a cloth of self-respect or dignity to wear.
Naked too; they feel shamed.
As if all can perceive that they were used or abused as tarnished trophies
once arrogantly displayed; played;
then laid aside dented and damaged. No longer worthy of any honor.
Thus, another cycle to circle violence and hate.
The wheels of rape go round and round.
Round and round.
Round and round.
The violence of rape It makes no sound.
Makes no sound.
Makes no sound.
Given no tongue to preach:
No more violence! I said "no!"
But, the tears do fall. And fall.
All the while silent screams bounce off the walls. As the waters rise drowning the victim from within.
No one sees the river rising behind the eyes. Inside the mind.
Though, eventually they see the deadness in her/his despise of the living.
Yes, eventually, the zombie is recognized by their sporadic loud laughter or drug glazed stare or Tick.
Clocking the days to nowhere.
out of the haze
A voice speaking of a future free of violence and hatred. A time when wickedness will be eliminated. A future filled with love and enjoyable work for all. An end to death and pain. No more to grow old. And a resurrection of dead loved ones.
The voice spoke from a book, though ancient, stating these were future prophecies to be fulfilled on this earth.
They promised to show me other scriptures to validate their claims.
Blanket Us . . . Our Sins by Seah Greenhorn ( Poem with copyright )
Constant groaning us together. Yes in pain All Humanity.
Red and yellow black or white. Races international our interrelated family.
We bleed. We grieve because of reoccurring tragedies.
Will this end-- this sick cycle
a carousel revolving sin, death,
Is there provided an escape or key?
Yes, a ransom for salvation.
A death to thick blanket our chilling iniquities.
this perfect life filled with plenty. Endless and peaceful.
One of tranquility.
a perfect human faithful
God's earthly purpose for all of Adam's obedient progeny.
So Christ came
in love was sent.
God let his innocent blood be violently spent.
His law of "life for life"
"The wages sin pays is death" will then rescind.
for example a town where most are happily employed at a factory large and gainful.
Every day at ease and lived with joy.
Paided well and living comfortably you and neighbor's are so well fed. Until the day the factory closes.
Manager corrupt, he secretly fled.
Bankruptcy followed after he stole the funds for himself instead.
All bonds and cd's sold.
Now unemployed, you and your neighbors. Bills are mounting to growing hills. Marriages rocky, children anxious
as these families crave daily bread.
Creditors harassing cause more pressure. All because of one man's greed.
Is this darkness everlasting? Or will someone fill a need?
Yes! A wealthy benefactor decides to intervene.
He appreciates the company's value. For its many employees and their families feels.
So he compassionately arranges to pay off debts reopen it's factory.
The future hope causing happy squeals.
The cancellation of this one debt to the many
relief it brings.
Birds are chirping in celebration singing praises
His name to ring
the bells of justice.

the course we travel brought about through no fault of our own
Adam’s debt through Christ's innocent blood cancelled
benefits untold millions who choose to serve God for Eternity.
Ourselves to gratefully disown. Propitiation Let's look at the biblical word 'PROPITIATION', here's some verses to help you. Romans 3:25 whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. Hebrews 2:17 Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 1 John 2:2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 4:10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
I am looking for some poetical pieces relating to this word 'Propitiation', telling either what it means and how it applies to our relationship to God or just choose one of the verses listed and write something on that particular verse. So go for it , looking forward to some real spiritual gems.no Bible bashing no chat talk no adult nothing rude no erotic no sensual no bad or offensive language must be RHYME. not anonymous - host sees user name. any breaking of these rules will be DQ ←
