VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: Fans and Followers!!






The Request Was Sent Out!

The People Needed To Form Up Behind
The Master
The Leader
The Glorious Way Into The Eternal Kingdom
While Singing:

"Oh, Happy Day!"

Groups Started Forming, And 
It Is Plain To See That
Some Were Fans - Fanatically, Frenetically, Following Popular Somebody
AND
Some Were Followers - Faithfully, Feelingly, Following Him Who Was Holy!

Fanatical Fans!
Faithful Followers!
Following The Same Person
BUT 
For Differing Reasons!

The Fanatics Followed The Master
Because It Was The Thing - In!
They Rallied To The Cause
For There Were Prizes Sharing!

The Followers Followed The Master
Because In Him They Truly Believed!
He Is Holy
AND 
His Word Is Holy
AND 
The Followers Believed The Holy Word
AND 
Were Out Of Love
Seeking His Promised and Gracious Rewards!

The Fanatics Were Not Humble!
They Saw No Reason To Bend
To The Will Of The Master
They Were So Frenetically Following!

The Followers - Those Lowly
Humble 
AND 
To The World ... Kind
Sought After The Will Of Their Lord and Master
AND 
They Left The Life Of Sin Behind!

Two Classes - One Lord!
Two Classes - One True Reward
AND
One Faith
AND 
One Baptism Into
One Living Holy Eternal God!

FINALLY ...

The Day Of The Final Examination
Dawned 
Dark and Quite Bright!
The Fanatics and The Followers
Were All Dressed To Please
The Lord's Holy Sight

BUT ...

The News Came Announcing That
Only Those Wearing "Christ's Righteousness"
Will Enter In Through The Gate
AND
Everybody Else Is To Be Delivered To
The Outside Fire Lake
Where They Will All Sadly Learn From Their Just Fate 
That Faithful Followers - By The True Master -
Attain The Gift Of Eternal Life
AND 
Myriad Unimaginable Rewards
BUT
That Fanatics
Have Already By The Devil Been Spuriously Paid
And Will - By The True Master -
For Their Play 
Be Unceremoniously Slayed!


Fan?
Follower?
Follower Of Truth?
Fighter Against Truth?
Which Ever Way
That We Choose To Play

REMEMBER:

At The End Of It All
On Our Knees
We Shall Fall

AND

Pay Homage
To Him Who 
Created The Universe

AND

Us All!
