Here And Now

As the light continues to go out, we need to be vigilant, not pout,
Or get angry about a dark time, as this isnít for us, Godís design,
For that window soon may close, for God to use those He chose,
As Godís Light to pierce the dark, or used by Him as just a spark.

That spark that others may need, when The Truth is what we heed,
Letting the Spirit to channel concern, while others listen and learn,
To The Truth, God has taught us, as His Spirit we follow and trust,
Living our days solely for Him, as His Light in the darkness of sin.

There is plenty to get angry about, but, The Truth we must get out,
While things get darker my friend, for we are approaching the end,
The end of the time we live in, to share the Truth weíve been given,
Being Christís Light of this world, His Truth is what we must herald.

Not manís empty ways anymore, but, Truth that leads to The Door,
With that Door being Jesus Christ, Who offers all men Eternal Life,
Where darkness wonít have a part, when from this earth we depart,
To reign forever with the only King, who rules far above everything.

So as dark men seem to prevail, itís The Eternal King, who we hail,
Who will cause darkness to cease, as He brings us Eternal Peace,
And our only duty here and now, isnít to know every why and how,
But, point lost men to the place, so Godís Truth they too embrace.

He's coming very soon, the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Waiting in Him with Great Expectation,Bob Gott

The ending is especially our calling, to point men toward God's truth.  The entire poem was informative and pleasant to read, as always packed with biblical knowledge.

Thank you for sharing your work, Bob.

God bless,
Rae
