MYSTERY BABYL – AMERICA
I walked through the door of Light
After hearing a Voice of Peace when I had none,
The eyes of my heart began to open,
Through the Gate I went holding His hand
The Shepherd’s hand of trust
Hand of confident assurance
Hand of heavenly peace in belief
Hand of my Lord.
As so long ago, the unknown always before me
Each detail of every step
Yet, no fearful mystery
The divine comfort of the Spirit of faith surrounds.
My mind sees the scorched landscape of this world system on proud display
Its barren desert, spiritual wasteland
Once noble cities and towns in human ruin,
A country once soaring as the most powerful eagle of all
In greatness of wealth and strength,
But now, the moral character of a nation nearly ruined and left naked.
A nation becoming defenseless from every predator and scavenger
Every wild animal of the earth
Eaten from within by parasites of lustful men and women
Self-consuming, greedy and violent mobs
Scheming intellectual anarchists
Political and economic fascists
Who feed on the corpse of what could have been;
Lying leaders reach only for more
Corporate beasts feed only themselves,
Incredible, insatiable appetites.
Tragically these dark shadows darkened even more by false shepherds
Religious deceivers, worst of all mankind
Who use holy names and holy words
To curse themselves and all those who listen!
The darkness never understands
The darkness can never put out the true Light
The Spirit door of the Way of Truth always stands nearby
Life meant for all, found by few
Yeshua Messiah’s arms of love reach very far,
Draw very close;
Yet, His door soon to close forever in the face of men and women
Who choose rebellion and stubbornness
Who yield to the lawless beast system
The spirit of the anti-Christ at work this very day,
Even in a nation becoming rotten to its very core.
