Haiku End of Days

Haiku End of Days

A Poem by Nancy Lee Shrader

Haiku End of Days

Sealed with seven seals

No one worthy to open

The Book from God’s Throne

 

 

 

In the midst stood He

A Lamb as He had been slain

Worthy is the Lamb

 

 

 

First seal is broken

Thunderous sounds in heaven

We’re told, come and see

 

 

 

Four horsemen will ride

Earth’s tribulation begins

Beware faint of heart

 

 

 

Bow without arrows

White horse sent out to conquer

Words of deception

 

 

 

Red Horse wields a sword

He will take peace, from the earth

One third will be killed

 

 

 

Now comes the black horse

Scales and measure in his hand

Hurt not oil or wine

 

 

 

What is oil and wine

Wealthy people of the earth

Devour all the poor

 

 

 

Pale horse bringing Death

Kill by sword, hunger and beast

And Hell followed suit

 

 

 

Disease fills the earth

It knows no station or age

And many will die

 

 

 

 

Fifth seal is broken

Those slain for God Word cry out

Judge and avenge us

 

 

 

Wait for fulfillment

Numbers must be completed

Rest for a season

 

 

 

Sixth seal brings earthquakes

Sun is blackened in the sky

Moon is turned to blood

 

 

 

Stars fall from the sky

Mountains and islands disrupt

Sky rolls like a scroll

 

 

 

Kings and rich men too

Hiding themselves from God’s wrath

Rocks please fall on us

 

 

 

 

Four angels are called

Tribulation is halted

The faithful are sealed

 

 

 

Many are chosen

From the earth and God’s people

Faith has saved their souls

 

 

 

Numbers are chosen

Sealed twelve thousand from each tribe

Of Jacob’s twelve sons

 

 

 

Great multitude comes

Every tongue, every nation

Sings salvation’s song

 

 

 

From whence did they come

Out of great tribulations

Hunger, thirst no more

 

 

 

 

Lamb will feed them all

Lead them to living waters

Wipe away all tears

 

 

 

Seventh seal broken

A space of half an hour

Silence in heaven

 

 

 

Seven angels here

To them trumpets are given

Prepared them to sound

 

 

 

Hear first trumpet sound

Hail and fire mingled with blood

Trees and grass burn now

 

 

 

Second trumpet sounds

Mountain thrown into the sea

Oceans turn to blood

 

 

 

 

Creatures in the sea

They die and ships are destroyed

On third of the whole

 

 

 

Third trumpet sounding

Star of corruption burning

It falls from the sky

 

 

 

Star’s name is Wormwood

On fresh waters it will fall

Poison waters kills

 

 

 

Fourth trumpet now sounds

Sun moon and stars are darkened

One third of heaven

 

 

 

Judgment announcement

WOE! WOE! WOE! The trumpet sounds

Feel God’s wrath rain down

 

 

 

 

Fifth trumpet brings key

Bottomless pit now unlocked

Smoke of great furnace

 

 

 

 

Smoke dims the sun

Thick darkness, clouds, no clean air

Breath caught in the throat

 

 

 

 

From bottomless pit

Locust flood, stings in their tails

Do not sting God’s sealed

 

 

 

The faces of men

Like horses dressed for battle

Crowned head, woman’s hair

 

 

 

 

Locusts torture souls

Men seek death, but death won’t come

A five month long sting

 

 

 

 

One WOE is now past

Mankind must endure two more

Before judgment comes

 

 

 

Trumpet number six

Euphrates Angels are loosed

Third of man will die

 

 

Beware the horsemen

Two hundred thousand thousand

Have breastplates of fire

 

 

 

Lion head horses

Fire, smoke and brimstone

Their fowl breath will burn

 

 

 

Beware horses’ tails

With serpents’ heads, they do hurt

Man repented not

 

 

Thundering voices

Speaking of the End of Days

Seal up all the books

 

 

By reed and a rod

Measure temple, not the court

Belongs to Gentiles

 

 

 

Two witnesses come

Prophesy they in sackcloth

Water and sky obey

 

 

 

Voices of thunder

Their testimony is heard

Call fire from the sky

 

 

 

Thunderous voices

Are preaching the Word of God

Turn water to blood

 

 

Witnesses not loved

Many men try to kill them

But they are stricken

 

 

 

There time is now spent

Antichrist has dominion

He now strikes them down

 

 

 

Lay dead in the streets

Merriment celebrations

Give and receive gifts

 

 

 

Two Witnesses rise

And every eye shall see them

By the hand of God

 

 

Treaty is broken

The antichrist reigns supreme

All must wear his mark

 

 

 

 

Guillotine brings death

To all who believe in God

Ax is at the door

 

 

 

The last seven plagues

Thundering down on the earth

There is no escape

 

 

 

The first vial poured out

Grievous sores covered all men

That had Satan’s mark

 

 

Second on the sea

Became blood of a dead man

And all things died there

 

 

 

Third is a blood curse

On rivers and fresh waters

No water to drink

 

 

 

 

Righteous is the Lord

Angel of the water said

Give them blood to drink

 

 

 

Fourth vial on the sun

Give power to scorch all evil

Still they blasphemed God

 

 

Fifth vial brings darkness

On antichrist and minions

Gnash their tongues in pain

 

 

 

Sixth angel pours his

On the river Euphrates

In preparation

 

 

 

Gathered now for war

Armageddon in Hebrew tongue

Spear is salvation

 

 

 

Seventh pouring out

Great Babylon is fallen

City in three parts

 

 

Mountains were not found

Every island fled away

Great hail fell on men

 

 

 

Riding a white horse

A two-edged sword in His mouth

God’s eternal word

 

 

 

All fall by this sword

Spoken by the Son of God

Believers rejoice

 

 

 

Satan locked away

Antichrist in fiery lake

A thousand year reign

 

 

Peace is everywhere

Weapons become pruning hooks

Wars are fought no more

 

 

 

There’s no more darkness

Jesus is the Light of man

The well spring of life

 

 

 

Lambs lie down with lions

Wild beast are led by a child

Tears are wiped away

 

 

 

Loosed for a season

Satan seeks to devour souls

God’s hand crashes down

 

 

White Throne Judgment call

Jesus opens book of life

Names are written there

 

 

 

Every knee shall bow

Everyone’s tongue will confess

But it is too late

 

 

 

Jesus turns away

Other books reveal their sins

Comes the second death

 

 

 

God’s judgment is just

They’re cast in the lake of fire

Penalty for sin

 

 

Those who washed their robes

Won’t stand naked in their shame

Life everlasting

 

 

 

Standing on the rock

Of the salvation of God

Through faith, received grace

It felt like i was turning a pencil in my hand that has a pattern that when moving looks like its drilling due to the way your ordered it.

That is me being weird the poem is great.

I really like it.

'Treaty is broken

The antichrist reigns supreme

All must wear his mark'

It says to me 'Do what the powerful men say otherwise you will bear the consequences' Live on strings.

Nice. Thanks for entering. The...what do you call it? Collection of Haikus? Whatever. It's great anyway! Have you considered entering this in my other contest - Apocolypse. You have to right something about the Apocolypse. This fits exactly!
