From  The Lamb Came The Lion

From The Lamb Came The Lion

A Poem by Don Shaw
"

His walk upon the earth was, as a Lamb .His return we will see the Lion !

"
             

                    From The Lamb Came The Lion

                         From the Lamb came the Lion,
                         that Revelation day.
                         Fire with-in His eyes,
                         burning evil from the day!
                         From the Lamb came the Lion,
                         that Revelation day.
                         double edge sword was His truth,
                         cutting evil from His way!

                         From His Angel armies,
                         thunder under hoof,
                         they filled the open heavens,
                         and landed upon our roof!
                         From the Lamb came the Lion,
                         that Revelation day!

                         Sounds of HALLELUJAH!
                         Echo from the clouds.
                         Screams of wailing mercy,
                         heard in worldly crowds!
                         From the Lamb came the Lion,
                         that Revelation day!

                         Angel shouting from the sun,
                         calling buzzards for their  feast.
                         As the Lion and His army,
                         were locking up the beast!
   
                         Echo`s in the valley you can hear a Lion ROAR!
                         Cries from a shackled beast and the slamming of a door!
                         From the Lamb came the Lion,
                         THAT REVELATION DAY!

Yes. This probably isn't the "Evangelical" vision of Christ - but it is an aspect of Him. We like - especially those who are casual Christians or seekers - they seem to gravitate toward the Sunday School Jesus - the Good Shepherd, the Lamb. But he is also very much the Lion of Judah. I myself - would love to be a sheep but I am not. I am much more a "sheepdog" - I have berserker blood and like it or not - I'm a warrior. I wouldn't have chosen it but it is what it is. So a poem like this, fires me up - and I get so little of that in daily life. This poem - rallies the troops. Well penned.

Dear Don

I am going to do something with your writing I have never done before, which is to do three short reviews of one writer in a day.

Why?

Because I buy into your belief system and your mode of self- expression.

I too am a Christian.

My few comments:

I love the premise of this piece and its reference to Revelation 5.

I found an interesting exegesis on the internet about that part of Revelations, I thought I would like to share with you. It follows:

..." The true “Lion and the Lamb” passage is Revelation 5:5-6. The Lion and the Lamb both refer to Jesus Christ. He is both the conquering Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Lamb who was slain. The Lion and the Lamb are descriptions of two aspects of the nature of Christ. As the Lion of Judah, He fulfils the prophecy of Genesis 49:9 and is the Messiah who would come from the tribe of Judah. As the Lamb of God, He is the perfect and ultimate sacrifice for sin.

2) Style: In its rhymes and repetitions, I feel this could easily be sung as a hymn.

May I refer you to one of my posts on here 'By Cool Siloam's Shady Rill'

It is not my writing. But it is my favourite hymn. If you look at that piece, I quote the lyrics, witness in commentary on why it is important to me and provide a Youtube link to a choir singing it.

I want you to know you have acquired a supportive fan and believer here.

I hope these comments lift your day.

They are so intended.

Your friend

Even angels are portrayed as comforting and gentle, yet they are also fierce warriors of heaven. So many forget that. I love the ending in this one.

Fairly well-written, if a bit slavishly praising in its intent. You seem to have some sort of formatting error where all of your capped lines have a space in between the end of the line and your punctuation - I'd take care of that.
