This is from the blog Words from the Crucible:

Invictus Refuted

A parody in disdain of William Ernest Henley’s famous and Godless poem, “Invictus”:

Into the night that covered me,
Black as the pit which held me whole,
He became sin that He might be
The conqueror of my soul.

From blinding clutch of Satan’s bands,
I heard His voice and cried aloud,
Then saw His blood on my own hands;
His face was marred, His head thorn-crowned.

Beyond the veil, He draws me near;
Through horror He my ransom paid,
That now in me He finds revere
And by His grace makes unafraid.

He leads me through the straitest gate,
He purged of punishments the scroll.
He is the Master of my fate,
He is the Captain of my soul.

New York Deathscape
By Tim Shey

Auschwitz,
Treblinka,
Buchenwald,
New York:
Unreal.

Child sacrifices unto Baal,
Albany is become Sodom.
The Hudson
Is a river of venom,
In the Valley of Slaughter.

Recently a law was passed in the state of New York that makes it legal for a mother to abort her child up to the day of delivery.  This is one of the most inhumane, cruel and barbaric laws that I have ever heard of.

Nazi Germany killed 6 million Jews in death camps during World War II.  The United States has killed over 60 million pre-born babies through abortion since 1973.  The United States is worse than Nazi Germany.

Jeremiah 19: 3-5:  “Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, the which whosoever heareth, his ears shall tingle. Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents; They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind.”

Dreams from the LORD 2007-2010
1 March 2009

“One of the important things that LaVerle [Van Houten] said was that the Lord told him not to go back to New York City. LaVerle has been to New York several times on mission trips. He told me that a number of prophets have pulled out of New York because people aren’t repenting of sin and destruction is coming.”

Lot and his daughters fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah

Scorched Earth
By Tim Shey

Genesis 19: 28:   “And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.”

Harlot of the Tetons
The stench of your sin
Rose up to highest Heaven
You were fashionably dressed
Like ancient Sodom
Till the day the Lord
Scorched your streets with fire.

Prophet Amos

This is from the blog Susanne Schuberth’s Poetry:

The Prophet’s Call
By Susanne Schuberth

Those who are aliens here on earth
Endure tormenting pangs of birth
They make the call to share their pains
Alas, the whore is bound in chains
She’s looking for applause of crowds
The prophets though are His ‘all-outs’

They call the stout to leave the wall
So they can hear the desert’s call
That calls for you and me, my friend
To leave that church which is a blend
Of truth and lies we might not see
And if we stay, we won’t get free

God calls us to the narrow path
So that we may escape His wrath
That is to come so very soon
When sun is darkened, and the moon
Where you can hear the weak one say
“He strengthened me, I’m on His way”

Don’t we reject the voice we hear
Through prophets’ words and by our ear
They urge us that we make our choice
And listen to His longing voice
The Lord’s still speaking to our heart
Because He wills that we take part

In joining them wholeheartedly
Who prayed to Him for eyes to see
The wickedness down to the core
Of Satan’s wife, his bride, his whore
See, all the years she took from Him
The fat, the wool, the sheep at whim

Still there is time for us to come
Unto the Lord before it’s done
The prophets who stand in the breach
Were called for us to pray and preach
Don’t we despise their words that hurt
Since Christ now wants to sift from dirt

The Wages of Sin is Death   4 comments

untitled

This poem is from the blog Touching the King:

The Wages of Sin is Death
By Jacqui

There is a church
Made by man
Bought with money
But the wages of sin
Is death

There is a church
Made by man
Merchandise is its name
Bought with status
But the wages of sin
Is death

There is a church
Made by man
Idolatry is its name
Its manna but worms
But the wages of sin
Is death

There is a church
Made by man
Witchcraft is its name
Rebellion is its mark
But the wages of sin
Is death

There is a church
Made by man
Its crime is self
Its home is this world
But the wages of sin
Is death

There is a church
Made by man
Where the flock are fat
Their lips are smooth
Their ears pierced with gold
But the wages of sin
Is death

There is a church
Made by man
Where the men speak lies
They are heard as truth
Their cross for all to see
But the wages of sin
Is death

There is a church
Made by man
Where the path is wide
Where comfort is the blanket
But the wages of sin
Is death

There is a church
Made by man
Where Satan holds his kingdom
Pride is seated
But the wages of sin
Is death

I tell thee the truth
There is a Church
Whose God is Jesus
The lively stones
Living with the Cornerstone
Where humility adorns
Where suffering is glorified
The wages of their sin
Bought and paid for
By the blood of suffering
By a Son of Man
Despised
Rejected
Nailed
Hammered to a cross

Yes there is a Church
Called True and Faithful
The Bridegroom cometh
He has paid the price
The Gate is narrow
The Path is straight
Where money is not the god
Idolatry silenced
Rebellion
Surrendered to Truth

I tell thee the Truth, Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life and no man can cometh to the Father except by Him.

Yom Kippur
To the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world
By Tim Shey

Death and Resurrection
Alpha and Omega
You shall know the truth

Offering for our sin
Friend of thieves and outcasts

Adam’s curse is broken
The truth shall set you free
One death for so many
Not a single bone was broken
Enemy is vanquished
Manifold temptations
Early you shall seek Me
No more tears and weeping
Today is now eternal

Leviticus 17:  11:  “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.”

Isaiah 53: 5:  “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

Revelation 1: 5:  “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.”

Inward Peace   Leave a comment

Inward Peace

By Thomas Ellwood

My Peace I give unto you.  John 14:27

Who can conceive, much less express,
The inward peace which they possess,
Who, by the indwelling of the light,
Have put satanic powers to flight;
In whom, renewed and born again,
The Lord of life does live and reign:
Renewed, restored, purged, purified,
And natural rovings laid aside;

Cleansed by the blood, kept by the grace,
That sin in them scarce finds a place;
The temple swept, prepared, then blessed
With presence of an heavenly guest,
A guest, not for a night or twain,
But one that always will remain;
Yes, such a guest as does impart,
That joy which overcomes the heart,
A joy so great, no tongue of man,
Express the fullness of it can;
And this unutterable bliss,
Flows from the love of God to His.
O! love immense, and without bound,
To all that in the Truth are found,
words are too short to set it forth
In its extent, and real worth.
The wife, that in the bosom lies,
Is precious in the husband’s eyes;
The sucking babe is very near,
The only Son, exceeding dear;
Tender the apple of the eye,
Friends and relations very nigh;
But yet this love does far transcend
That to wife, child, eye, parent, friend.

These metaphors are all too low,
The nature of this love to show;
No tongue is able to declare,
How dear to God His children are;
Only the sense of it is felt,
Which breaks the heart and makes it melt.

The Poetry of Thomas Ellwood

Yesterday I was reading The Great Fire of London in that Apocalyptic Year, 1666 by Neil Hanson.  I think it may have been in the second chapter, but it said that Thomas Ellwood prophesied or had dreams or visions in 1662 that showed him that London would suffer a plague and a fire in the near future.  The plague hit London in 1665 and the Great Fire hit London in 1666.

POETRY: God’s Grandeur and Pied Beauty, by Gerard Manley Hopkins   Leave a comment

gods-grandeur

This is from the blog The Value of Sparrows:

God’s Grandeur

The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed.  Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
And wears man’s smudge and shares man’s smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

Pied Beauty

Glory be to God for dappled things —
For skies of couple-color as a brindled cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;
Landscapes plotted and pieced-fold, fallow, and plough;
And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim.

All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
Praise him.

On His Blindness
By John Milton

When I consider how my light is spent
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,
And that one talent which is death to hide
Lodg’d with me useless, though my soul more bent
To serve therewith my Maker, and present
My true account, lest he returning chide,
“Doth God exact day-labour, light denied?”
I fondly ask. But Patience, to prevent
That murmur, soon replies: “God doth not need
Either man’s work or his own gifts: who best
Bear his mild yoke, they serve him best. His state
Is kingly; thousands at his bidding speed
And post o’er land and ocean without rest:
They also serve who only stand and wait.”

What can I give God?

Jackson Death Camp

[10 May 2012]

Jackson, Wyoming
By Tim Shey

Lamentations 3: 64-66:  “Render unto them a recompence, O LORD, according to the work of their hands.  Give them sorrow of heart, thy curse unto them.  Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD.”

Lamentations 4: 13-14:  “For the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests, that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her,  They have wandered as blind men in the streets, they have polluted themselves with blood, so that men could not touch their garments.”

Give me your money

This is my body
Keep your hands off

Because her children are not

Welcome to Jackson
Tourist, stop and rest
Home of the rich and famous
Death Camp of the West

This is a letter that Randy Sheets sent to Marie Stopes International:

“I thought you’d like to know that my wife delivered a beautiful, healthy baby girl that your clinic here in Nha Trang Vietnam told my wife to have an abortion because the baby didn’t have a heartbeat.

“When my wife was about a month pregnant she happily and so proud left the house that morning to go to your clinic here because someone told us Marie Stopes was the best Women’s health clinic in Nha Trang and one of the top in Vietnam.  When she came home about an hour later she was crying and emotionally torn up. YOUR CLINIC told her the baby didn’t have a heart beat (you dumb asses) don’t even know that sometimes a heart beat isn’t audible until 12 weeks.,  But your office was hoping my wife would be like the countless other ignorant, uneducated young girls, who believe anything a doctor tells them, but unfortunately for you, I am an American, educated, retired Naval Officer who immediately saw something seriously wrong with her report.
“It took me 2 hours to get her calmed down and after talking nonstop and showing her countless internet articles I finally got her to believe that your company is EVIL. and that you do abortions in fact push abortions.. I did some research on you guys.    By the way, she told me later that one of her friends had an abortion from you because their babies didn’t have a heart beat…..
.
“So, wanted you to know you have God to answer to.  You’re cursed and God will surely judge and has judged you all in all of your evil affairs.
.
“Shame on you.  How can you even sleep at night????”

Here is a comment from “Abortion Protests and Counter Protests in Full Swing in Jackson” (Channel 8 News; Idaho Falls, Idaho):

“I was in Jackson a week previously with Missionaries to the Preborn’s aborted baby pictures, and found a lot of the residents are shortsighted selfish bloodthirsty pro-aborts, but there are many good residents too who understand abortion is murder.  They appreciated our graphic abortion signs which show how vicious the abortion industry is.  The Jackson police learned from their local courts to not trample on the Constution any more, so at last notice the Jackson law enforcement personnel were being reasonable about the First Amendment even while local pro-aborts were trying imaginative dirty tricks like trying to con traffic into driving around the pictures that reveal what abortion is.  The fact the babykilling industry works so hard to avoid and cover up the vile butchery of abortion shows how scared they are of the truth coming out.  They claim they are ‘protecting children’ from seeing slaughtered babies, but in reality kids like to see the gore just like they do at Halloween, and in reality the pro-aborts don’t want to have to explain to their children that they have already murdered their missing brothers and sisters.  Their unresolved guilt will continue to torment them until they sincerely confess and repent, as many have already learned to do.”

Jeremiah 31: 15:  “Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.”
