Truth

English – Spanish

Who has known that the Day of the Lord, the Great Day of Judgment comes in the anointed servant of God who comes without warning or fanfare or observation? Who has known that he not only comes as a thief but abides and performs as one and leaves the households he has visited with their due judgments while most are totally unaware until it is much after the fact?

 

I am Truth.

I judge all things,

And all things come before Me,

Creatures great and small,

Young and old,

Foolish and wise.

I ever preside,

Here and now.

All is under My scrutiny;

I am the great white throne;

I am that I am.

 

All are haled before Me;

All are tried,

All are made manifest,

All are sentenced,

All are recompensed

According to the thought of their hearts,

The words of their lips,

The works of their hands.

No man is exempt,

Even for a moment.

 

I judge the saint;

I judge the heathen;

I punish the evildoer

And reward the righteous,

Right where they stand.

None can escape Me;

Whether it be My wrath

Or My reward,

They receive their just dues.

 

The fool despises Me,

Is blind to My presence,

Ignorant of My power,

Scornful of My law;

He perishes.

 

The wise love Me

And honor Me

And are blessed,

Prospering in all things.

 

Lethbridge, Alta., March 1986

Alone
"You've got to walk...that lonesome valley...you've got to walk...it by yourself..." the song goes. As it was with our father of faith, so with every sojourner. "Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you; for I called him alone, and blessed him and increased him." There is no other way.   On the day that I set out to walk with God I became lonely. My family insisted That I remain with it - I chose my loneliness, Part of the price to pay For obedience to God.   I entered a family of those Who claimed to walk with God, Only to discover feigned faith. They insisted I be as they. Called out from among them Again I was lonely.   He gave me a wife Knowing it not good That I should be alone. Together we searched for friends - A cup of water here And a cup there But no well. Today, after many years, He gives us a son Who helps to bear our loneliness But we are lonely.   What is it to be lonely? It is to be alone In desires, in thoughts, in understanding, In conversation, in goals and interests, In activity, in purpose.   Added to our loneliness, Betrayals and disappointments To sharpen the pain that is there - They come with smiles And depart with frowns.   Added to our betrayals and disappointments, The enmity of adversaries Opposing what we are And why we are here, Hating us without a cause   Added to the hatred, Loneliness, For they hate us And us alone.   Moon River, Oct. 29...

The Twice Dead
It is bad enough to watch a dog vomit though by vomiting it may well expel that which ails it. Then it is a pleasant experience to behold a healthy creature. But bad is bad when one witnesses the return of a dog to its vomit only to lick it up again. I do not know of many more disgusting spectacles to witness in all of existence.   Up from the pits of Hell Come the vilest of the vile; These are the has-beens of yester-year, Full of venom and guile. These have known the truth of God; They have known His love and power, His mercy to loveless men; His goodness has made them sour.   Why do angels fall? Why do just men call On gods who have nothing to give? Why do fools choose death In order that they may live?   Now here is a marvelous thing That would make any devil sing: It is easier to find The seeing man crying to be blind Than it is the blind to see.   Lethbridge, Alta., June 1985
