DEATH  HOVERS

 

As Christians – “We face death all the day long, and are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”-Psalm 44:22

I stand and quietly watch

As a beautifully colored hummingbird floats about

In search of a special blossom

Seeking life’s nectar,

High above a gentle wind moves along

At a distance trees gently sway

New morning light plays off the leaves

As the days tender and new song is given birth.

Then, suddenly, this tiny bird darts against the nearby Chapel door frame

And drops to the ground;

In a stunned moment of disbelief

The mind rings with “what” and “why”,

My hand cups the little bird as its wings vibrate slightly

Its striking feathers still move and twitch

As death settles into the small body,

Then, all breath and movement is gone!

The sharp sword of a moment

Flashes with piercing light,

Nations at war once more

Turmoil and division within

Chaos without.

Every currency in “debt fraud” moves as a powerful controlling weapon,

Spiritual hunger seems to wander aimlessly about the planet

Seeking, but not finding

Looking, but not understanding;

A famine covers the land

A famine for the Living Bread,

The revealed Word of God.

Too few truly seek Truth

Search for it as silver, seek as for hidden treasure,

Even fewer truly love Truth

And the God of Truth…

Death stalks our land

Death hovers about all our states and cities,

And only God’s hand of mercy in Messiah Yeshua

Can save any one of us

From persecution

And from the sword of final judgment!

   The Glory of God is seen in the Light of His Holiness.
