Day of Wrath

Day of Wrath

A Poem by Paladin4life
"

This poem is written from the point of view of one of the countless millions that will deny Christ as savior or merely wait too long and finsd that they have missed their opportunity. I pray God uses this poem to lead you to Jesus Christ.

"

Trumpet sounds some people vanish

But who needs them they were so clanish

Always preaching so old fashioned

Always telling with such passion

Of a God they claimed to know

But HE seemed to be a no show

For 2000 years they have cried

Yet all this time he remains to hide

What kind of God would leave his own

To face the wrath for what He's sown

Surely this person does not exist

For so says all our scientists

All our scholars with their degrees

Laughed to scorn all Christian pleas

To accept Jesus as divine

Instead temporal knowledge is our shrine

We know of the seasons, of molecules and atoms

But nothing of God, His word we cant fathom

How could a book eternal life contain

Surely these Christians must be insane

Yet now I wonder where they all went

Coud it be that they were heaven sent

No I shuddered such things dont exist

For I have the word of every scientist

Yet now I ponder how could it be

Millions have vanished and yet, not me

I watched the news for some answers

But all they had to show were dancers

Joyous crowds leeping in the street

Jubilant people at their new leaders feet

For in this chaos a man emerged

One within whom great power surged

He beckoned the people of all classes

And with his tongue he won the masses

Friends, he said, the time is here

A time in which there's nothing to fear

I have come to end famine and war

Now peace shall reign from shore to shore

For I hold all power in the palm of my hand

Join my cause and life will be grand

Take my mark in your forehead or in  the palm of your hand

Through it you shall trade our economy shall stand

One then said what gives you the right

Perhaps this command we should all fight

Then he said with a sneer so grim

To all of his men, guards arrest him

I am no mere man I can't be refused

I am God incarnate at my will heavenly fire will be issued

And then with a roar he commanded the skies 

Which issued the fire before our very eyes 

All our hearts melted God was here

He could save us from all fear 

I took the mark without hesitation

Who could deny this divine maifiestation

Now God was here all would be well

But soon I discovered I was condemened to hell

Now all too late I know I have done great evil

This mark cast my lot with the prince of the devils

For now I bow at the Great White throne

I see the Lamb of God whose face shone

But now HE stands not as Saviour but Judge

He is casting sentence for every sinful smudge

Oh God I cried have mercy on me

Please don't cast me in the firery sea

Its too late wretched soul that you are

Your cry is unheeded you have gone too far

I knocked on your heart's door not merely once or twice

But you were too busy in all of your vice

Now the day has come you will get what is due

For of  your sinful ways verily I am through

Angels bind him with cords of darkness

Angels put him in the shadowy harness

Cast this sinner deep into hell

Throw this soul into the firey well

At His word my fate was sealed

Now I suffer forever never to be healed

Oh why did I wait to receive God's call

Oh for what reason did I salvation stall

I could Have been cleansed, saved from fate

But now it's all too certain, I waited Too Late.

This is an excellent poem with great talent behind the pen. I liked this piece. A pre tribulation view to God's second coming. The plea to hear his voice is heard vividly in this piece. The bible does say to get off the fence. It is better to be on one side or the other. Fence sitter get spewed from his mouth. Well penned. This piece is compelling.

Great imagery, great flow. I enjoyed the poem, sure I don't agree with the process of the ends time that you believe in but all in all a great read. It did strike cords, and play on ones fear, it did make you think and hold your breath to see what would happen to this character, that was very well done, and that makes it an enjoyable read. Unfortunately I can't think of any suggestion to improve your poem, I think it was quite perfect the way it was written.
