VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: The True Way Leads Home

Her Name Was Waywardness!
His Name Was Willfulness!
There Son Was Worthlessness!
The Daughter
Defy!

They Lived In Carelessness!
The Mayor Was Conscienceless!
The Officer Spinelessness!
The Priest
World Pacify!

The Maid Was Remorseless!
The Manner Divisiveness!
The Cause Godlessness!
The Way Was Wide!

The Witness Was Giddy Liedness!
The Judge Was Rudderless!
The Prosecutor Gutless!
The Defender Was Witless!
The Plague Was Hornets Nests!
The Call Was For Faultlessness!
The Tone Was "Do Not Edify!"

One Day ...

Wisdom To Town Moved In

The Next Day True Worship Joined Him
Peace And Rest Brought
The Children
Hope And Glory With Them
Don't Believe Satan's Lies Casually Dropped By!

Sabbath Rest Arrived The Day After Monday
True Worship Invited
Constancy And Righteousness To Preach And Proselytize
Which Caused
Stern Rebuke And
Blameless Before God
To Pitifully Sigh And Cry!
AND
Glib Glum
Loose Screw
And Limp Liar The Town Crier
Went On A Smear Campaign
To Right Living Not Justify!

Battle Lines Were Drawn In The Air
Fraud And Frame
Took Up Comfy Chairs
License And Liberty
Uttered Raucous Cheers
AND
Petty Putrid
Threw Sticky Pastry Prods Every Where!

BUT ...

The Spirit Of Truth
Is Working!
Prayer Without Ceasing Is Petitioning!
Saints Of God Are At Work Unstinting
AND
God's Grace
Without Measure
Rests On The Hearers Of Truth Willing
While The Wild And Woolly
Themselves Lyingly Justify!


AS IS TO BE EXPECTED ...

Some Resisted Salvation Call
BUT
Those Hungry For Truth
Reached Out The Hand
AND
The Willfull Swore
We Can Do What We Like!
We Can!  We Can!
And Arch Deceiver
Hooted And Hollered
And Fired Baser Instincts From The Low Rider Van
And Blight On The Land
Rained Fusticuffs
On Valiant For God's Gray Head!

SURPRISE! NO SURPRISE ...

The More God's Faithful
Were Abused Harassed
By Devil Inspired And His Large Clan
The More The People
From Whom Had Been Hidden The Truth
Turned Their Backs On
The Dark Age
AND
Boldly
Entered The Holy Light!

Minions Of Darkness
Hated The Holy Light
For
Their Deeds Were Evil
AND
Holy Light Exposed Them
With Camera Shots Real Tight!

From Darkness Into Light!
Soon Became The Loudest Refrain
AND
The Dark Shadows Started Lifting
As The Latter Rain Came!

Worship God!
Give Glory To Him!
The Hour Of His Judgment Is Come!
Get Out From Among Them!
Confusion Is Fallen!
Confusion Is Fallen!
Jesus Christ Is Coming
For Faithful Believers All
Get Out From Among Them!
Don't Suffer Their Plagues
Which Are About To Fall!

No Need To Fear!
Faithful Is Spared!
You Will See With Your Eyes
BUT
Have Nothing
About Which To Be Scared
For
Your Bread And Water Is Secured
And All Their Evil Machinations
Have No Standing
Save But To Damnation
At The Hand Of Almighty God!

The Remnant
Those Answering Few
Stand Up For God
Not Bowing Their Knee
To The Fraud!

They Pray
Supplicating
The Great God Of Grace
Trusting The Holy Word
Knowing
Believing The Word
On Earth
Cannot Be Changed
OR
Reversed!
They Chose To Live
For The Lover
The Lover Of Their Souls
Refusing The Pleasures Of Sin For A Season
Choosing
To Suffer
With The Blessed People Of God!

Their Lives Were Embitted
BUT
Their Faces Displayed
Love Joy
AND
Sweet Peace
AND
They Wrestled With Their God
Refusing To Let Him Go
Until The Blessing Upon Them Is Conferred!
Blessed Is The Relief!

Grace For Each Day
Hope Renewed Each Day
Trusting Each Moment
Of Each Day
Is Their Living Truth!

Our God Is Able!
Is Coming!
AND
We Have His Proofs!

We Will Not
Turn Around
Walk Back
NOR
Walk Away!
We Will Continue Praying!
Praying!
Praying!
Our God Is Surely On His Way!

Trust Did Not Die
For
Bad-pay Could Not Kill Him!
False Prophet Had Earthly Profits
BUT
Faithful Folk Did Not Believe His Lies!

Live Fast Died Young Young!
Cool Running Was A Hit Song
Until Redemption Song Came Along
AND
Time To Remember
Caused
Yellow Red
Black White Roses
To Abound
Along Shepherd's Way

BUT ...

Don't Care!
AND
What Fear?
Called Despair
Their Wicked Wasting Fare To Share
As Those Repentant
Rememberers
Gave To Jesus Christ
Their Past
Present
AND
Future
In Saved Soul Delight!

The Story Is Not Over!
The Coming Is Ahead!
AND
Whether Faithful Living
OR
Those Who Believed
Now Dead
At The Coming Of The Conquering King
Dead Plus Living
Will Rise Up To Heaven
Their True King At Their Head!

Then ...

There Will Be
No More Tribulation
No More Grief
No More Bitter Tears To Be Shed
For
The Redeemed Of God
Glorified
Immortal
Eternal
Having Endured Strife
Are At Home
With The Eternal Holy God!

The Message Is Wait! Wait! Wait!
The Manner Is With Faith!
The Oil Is Gladness!
The Food Is Holy Word Bread!
The Comforter Is Holy Spirit!
Protection Is From Strong Angels On The Wing!
The Hope Is In The Precious Promises
From The Living God
On Whom All Faithful
Faithfully Cling!

Be Sober,  I Tell You! 
You! You!
And You, Two!
Be Vigilant
My Brother Sister Friend!
Jesus Christ
Immanuel
God With Us Is Coming

So ...

Be
A Humble
Praise Singing
Prayer Saying
Heaven Anticipating
Child Of The True
Holy Only Godhead

AND

Cling To Truth!
Cling!
Cling!
CLING!!

Our God IS Coming
AND
Contrary To Popular Belief
He Will NOT Be Silent!!

**********


All Will Hear When The Trumpet Of God
AND
The Voice Of The Archangel
Sound!!

Pass The Word Along!
