The Coming of The Light

                          Day Is Dying In The West

Day is dying in the West, darkness spreads its raven crest,

Night comes, but brings no rest, it floods upon the land,

I herald the coming of the night, I herald the fall of man,

When might makes right, with houses built on sand,

 When Truth is ignored, and none take it to mind,

Darkness spreads apace, and evil enthroned you find,

Ignorance reigns, minds are polluted, not pristine and clean,

And like tiny banners waving green,

Blades of grass in the streets of our cities will be seen,

 “The night is almost here,” the trumpets blast,

Their warning shrills against the light’s last glow,

But men’s ears are attuned to a sound from the past,

The voice of a serpent, from a garden long ago,

 I herald the dying of the day, the coming of the night,

Thralldom to the dark, that rages against the light,

I herald the advance of doom, of darkness and of evil’s might,

 But wait, take of the Book and read,

The night is not triumphant, tho across the land it speed,

Righteousness and peace will meet together,

And Truth from the earth will spring,

 As the phoenix, newborn, rises from the ashes of the old,

So all that is Good shall triumph, as prophets have foretold,

So I herald the advent of the dawn, I herald the fall of night,

I herald the reign of the God of Truth, Behold the coming of the Light!

Lord Make Me A Stone In Your Temple of Light

      A Stone In God’s Temple

Christian, mid your daily duties,

When cares oppress your heart,

When no matter what your efforts,

Troubles form life’s greatest part,

Do not let your heart be tempted,

From its hold on truth and light,

Do not let your footsteps falter,

In the pathway of the right,

Yes, tho your way seem weary,

Never halt you in the fight,

For step by step will bring you,

The reward that awaits the right,

And perseverance in the conflict,

Make you a stone in God’s temple of light

Redistribution of Others Wealth

                  Stealing Apples From A Forbidden Tree           

 God said to Adam, all the trees are mine, eat of them all as you wish,

But do not eat of that one tree, it is poison, eat of it and you lose your bliss,

But the devil said, redistribute His apples, for God is telling a lie.

And Adam listened, as had Eve, and they ate God’s apples on the sly,

Is it true that all that glitters isn’t gold, and that the devil may sometimes lie,

And that stealing apples from a forbidden tree, means that you will die, 

Has anything really changed, from the dawn of time to this,

For lies are still packaged and sold as truth, and we are promised bliss,

For we hear that all that is needed for the worldly perfection of man,

Is redistribution of others wealth, though that’s only part of the plan,

And all that glitters we will find is gold, and that the devil will never lie,

And stealing apples from another’s tree, will never cause you to die, 

We must give all power to the government, to rule in the name of man,

Then give up our weapons, and make all obey the government’s plan,

Those who won’t give up their weapons, we will fight them to have peace,

And then when all resistance is broken, the troubles of man will cease,

And after this is accomplished, and gaining the Brave New World is done,

The lazy will be paid for existing, and man’s happiness will be won, 

Nothing much has really changed, since the dawn of earth and the birth of man,

These things alone are certain, and have been since time began,

That dogs return to their vomit, and a washed sow returns to the mire,

And those who package and sell a lie, of deception never tire,

And all that glitters is not gold, and the devil will always lie,

And stealing apples from a forbidden tree means that you will die.

What Are the Signs of Jesus’ Return?

The Bible gives us many signs that will precede and announce the soon return of Jesus. Does anyone know what they are? There are three that have never been used in the past, because they never applied until today. What are they?

Why the Jewish Leaders Missed The Signs of Jesus Arrival

The Return of Jesus to the Earth – The Second Coming

I. Predictions To Prepare The Jews for Jesus’ First Coming
A. He would be born in Bethlehem
B. He would come to serve His people
C. A star would mark His Birth
D. He would be of the lineage of David

God gave the Jews very specific information that would enable them to recognize Messiah.

1. He would be born in Bethlehem. When the Magi (the Wise Men) arrived from the East (probably Persia), they inquired of Herod, the non-Jew whom the Romans had made king of Judea, where the coming King of the Jews was to be born. When a frightened and greatly alarmed Herod inquired of the Jewish religious leaders, they told him without hesitation that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem, in Judah.

  1. Micah 5:2. But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of (villages in) Judah, yet out of thee shall He come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting (eternity).

2.  Messiah would come to serve His people. (All good leaders have a heart to serve their people.) There are many Old Testament scriptures that speak of Jesus coming to serve the Hebrew people.

3. Another sign by which the Hebrews were to recognize Messiah was that a star would announce His birth. That was prophesied in the book of Numbers 24:17. “I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel.” Recall that the Magi said, “We have seen His star in the East, and have come to worship Him.”

 4.  Yet another and very important sign by which the Jews were to recognize the Messiah was that he would be of the lineage of David. The genealogies at the beginning of the Gospels of Matthew and of Luke give Jesus’ genealogy. They are different in part because one is Jesus line of descent thru Joseph. The other is His line of descent from David thru Mary. The priests kept very careful genealogical records, or as we would say, family trees, in the temple. These made it easy for any Hebrew to trace their descent all the way back to Adam. That is why the people, when Jesus entered Jerusalem prior to His crucifixion, cried, “Hosanna to the Son of David (descendent of David); BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD; Hosanna in the highest!” That is also why only the children shouted those words in the temple. The adults were afraid too for fear of displeasing the chief priests and their followers, by saying that Jesus was David’s heir, the rightful king of Israel and Messiah. (Remember that some people had already been put out of the synagogue for saying that Jesus was Messiah and the rightful king of Israel.)

With all of these predictions being fulfilled in Jesus, the Jewish leaders and most of the Hebrew people did not recognize that Jesus was Messiah, the Promised Savior. Their redeemer came for the first time, and they missed the signs of His arrival.

There are many predictions telling us how and when Jesus will return for the second time. Will we miss the signs of His Return, just as most of the Hebrews missed the signs of His first arrival?
