THE ALPHA AND OMEGA

Our Lord is Alpha and Omega
He is eternal, indestructible
He has no beginning,
The uncaused causation,
The beginning and the end,
I AM that I AM that forever exists.

Be it circumstance, situation, challenge,
He knows the end from the beginning.
No anxiety for those who trust in the Almighty.
So we count it all Joy when adversity,
Trials and temptation come,
We rest assured the end is to His glory.

The end to everything must come.
The devil knows his end is near.
Satanís end is destruction.
He desires that we end with him
But God desires that we enjoy eternity
We have been given adequate entreaty.

Assured of a blissful end,
An end that is another beginning
Our physical existence has a terminus
But our spiritual existence has no end.
On our choice will fate depend.
We sure must make amend,
We ought to choose right
So we can attain the height.

Satan wants to continually do us in
Ensuring we are engrossed in sin
Only if we hold on to the End,
On The Author and The Finisher,
The First and the Last

Our face set like a flint
We have set our foot on the Gas
Equipped with sufficient hint
There is no looking back
Salvation means enduring to the end
Remaining on LIFE track


We have been called out by Godís Love
Agape Love and not the one selfish
Having access by the Blood without blemish
And sustained by His Spirit
We may have a daunting race
Nevertheless by His Grace,
We have all it takes to make it to the End.

I love the phrases "the uncaused causation" and "God desires that we enjoy eternity."

To focus your poem, take a look at your last few stanzas; you have quite a few mixed metaphors. Face like flint, foot on the gas, a track, and a race...that's a lot to throw at your reader. You might want to consider choosing one apt metaphor, and sustaining it throughout the whole poem.

Lots of depth of feeling here!

That caught my eye also, "uncaused causation" Good terms. I enjoyed the poem throughout. Listen to sis.Jan posts, she is very good pointing out helpful ideas. Very true, lots of depth and that's what like very much. Keep writing brother! Much teaching through inspiration is worthy of our acknowledgement. God bless ya, littlelight
