Among the candlesticks, He stands
in sacerdotal dignity,
and holds, in nail imprinted hands
the key to all eternity

We do not sense His presence, for
in comfort and complacency,
sit, naked, lukewarm, wretched, poor
and blinded, by prosperity

We miss, the tragic paradox,
when gathered 'in His name', within
for there, without, He stands and knocks
whilst we refuse, to let Him in!

Ancient of everlasting days,
anoint our eyes, revive our zeal
with fiery, penetrating gaze
the thoughts of every heart, reveal

Repent, be cleansed, from every sin
as hallowed vessels, set apart,
oh let revival start, within
our poor, Laodicean hearts

Then shall our faith, withstand the fire
when clothed in spotless, purity
and every holy heart's desire?
'Come in and sup, my Lord, with me'



To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 1:18/3:21-22 KJV

Beautiful poem! God bless~

I enjoyed your poem. I liked this line: "Repent, be cleansed, from every sin
as hallowed vessels, set apart,
oh let revival start, within
our poor, Laodicean hearts."

I think this poem is beautiful. You painted vivid pictures for my mind. It touches my heart and I'm sure it will reach many others as well. Good job.

Congratulations on ranking 33 overall!

This is an amazing poem with a strong and powerful message from Scripture. You have been able to deeply portray chastisement, heart felt prayer of repentance, the hope of salvation, and much more. The third truthful verse hits hard, the fourth is an echoing prayer from many hearts, the sixth amazing grace! Thankyou so much for this Deb.

You have an amazing gift... I love the flow of this and the message is so crucial is this watered-down-world we live in. This piece reminds me of a favorite convicting song of mine written by a pop artist from the 70's who went home to be with the Lord in 1982. His name is Keith Green and the song is "My Eyes are Dry." It is on Youtube and I think you will be blessed by it as I was in reading this poem. Thank you for sharing your gift.
