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
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
And from the sword of final judgment!
The Glory of God is seen in the Light of His Holiness.
