Listen Up

by Clinton Herring © 2023

I took a dive into Your Word.
I leaped from page to page.
Your message clear from what I heard,
The future of this age.

I crossed the border from old to new,
I saw the picture clear.
I'm sad for all, but what to do?
Not many choose to fear.

I saw time laid end to end,
Your Word from start to finish.
It's all so clear, around the bend,
The wicked soon will perish.

Have mercy, Lord. Save a few.
Your Son, You sent to try.
We're lost from truth. We have no clue,
Your Son, You sent to die.

His blood now shed upon the fall,
So righteous, it is clear.
You offer up a saving call,
To all who weep with tear.

"Oh, listen, please. Our time is short,
God's Word has made it clear."
"We've little time to enter His court,
We all must choose to hear."

Isaiah 46:9b-10a
Remember the former things long ago, for I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning. My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good work.

Revelation 20:12
And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.

Matthew 11:15
He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

Mark 4:23
If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.
