Saten

Saten

A Poem by sarah

Christians are tested for their faith

Satan has lost another to God

And that makes him very angry

 

So he plays a little game

He see's just how certain we are about what we believe

He see's if we really want God in our hearts

 

So he giggle's a little

At the thought of his game

He wants to see just how faithful we are

 

He snicker's at the idea of the game he plays

He comes into the house of this "Christian"

He watches quietly for a while

 

He watches as the boy or girl sleeps

He smiles at his own idea

He gets excited

 

then he turns to his helpers

They already know what to do

They snicker together

 

First they haunt the person's dreams with

Torture

Blood

Gore

 

The person wakes

The room seems quiet

The person's breathing slows down once more

 

The demons continue

They stand over the bed

Waiting...

Watching...

 

The person opens his eyes and see's what stands before him

The figure before him chuckles and says

"You’re weak, afraid, a coward. This "God" you love has lied

He doesn't love you, he tricks you, he deceives you”

 

The person’s heart races

The mind can’t but help but consider the words

 

The figure stay’s in place

Not moving

It just stand’s there

Laughing quietly to itself

 

The person pauses in weakness for a moment

But then the faith and love of the Lord takes over

The person knows what he must do

 

The person smiles and says

“You not have to listen to me but you have to listen to Him,

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ go away!”

 

The figure no longer laughs

It stands silent

It starts to shake in fear

 

The person senses weakness in the figure

It nods and says

“I’ll be back, don’t think I won’t”

 

The air that was thick with fear vanishes

The darkness disappears

The hidden pain leaves

 

Demons are real

And they are stronger than you know

And the only thing stronger…

 

God

Don’t doubt him

Because he is your only protection from Satan

Don’t abandon your shield

 

Because you never know when Satan will strike

You are correct in this poem. Evil will test us daily. Need to try to stay away. A very strong poem. Need to hold on the good things and be kind. Too many evil things in this world already. A excellent poem with a very good ending.

The problem is that we are never attacked with that much straightforwardness, always obliquely and much harder to recognize. and yes, you never know...

Wow! I'm a Christian and I really love this!! All of this is true! We do have the power to overcome Satan and we need to remember how weak he really is and how strong our Lord is! Thank you for publishing this. :0) I think it's great! And keep writing!! (PS..I like this so much I'll give you a 100.)
