Look What’s Taking Place

Open up your eyes, and look at what’s taking place.
It’s just like what Jesus said, race shall rise against race.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. - Matthew 24:7-8

Skin color is not the issue, skin color is not the flaw,
because of two people’s disobedience, all creation did fall.

Adam and Eve both ate and their eyes were opened and they realized they were naked - Genesis 3:6-7

The Lord doesn't see as man sees, I don't judge by appearance; I judge the heart. -  1 Samuel 16:7

Open up your Bible and read the Word of God.
Look at your surroundings, you still wonder why it’s odd.

Spirit of Rebellion; Spirit of Anti-Christ.
Spirit of Discord; Words that do entice.

Men full of envy; Lovers of themselves.
Men full of pride; They never have enough wealth.

Men full of lies; Men full of deceit.
Men who have chosen the bitter, instead of the sweet.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness to light and light to darkness, who replace bitter with sweet and sweet with bitter.

Woe  to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight. -Isaiah 5:20-21

Men who are backbiters; Haters of God. - Romans 1:30
Soon He (God) will divide the sheep, from the goats, with His mighty rod.

 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate the people one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. - Matthew 25:31 -32

 Listen to the words that Jesus told.
For in the last days, the love of many shall wax cold. -Matthew 24:12

    Excellent Christian poetry ! And scripture to back it up.. The world may think it strange and foolish talking but so a man thinks so he is ! Its a life of rescue, restore and rebuild, making us mature, complete and whole !Stay the course.
