In These Last Days

 In these last days of mission,
Your young men have visions,
Your children do prophecy,
And the saints also testify.

The Lord Jesus is ready to come.
The Bridegroom is very handsome.
He’s excited and ready to dine.
But the shepherds assume they’re just fine.

God sends his people to preach
His true message of holiness.
But the scoffers reject what they teach,
Saying, “That’s only foolishness!”

To the great and the small,
God says to us all,
“There simply is no time left.
Repent of your lies and your theft.”

So turn each one from your sin
And don’t you ever give in
To the schemes of the devil.
But be God’s holy vessel.

Author's note When my daughter brought this poem to me, I could see it was very good, so I helped her make a few adjustments to smooth it out.  But this is her poem and message.  The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages eight through fifteen . The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. Please also see America, Turn Back to God. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."  Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
