Silence flowed over the world for a moment,
Though it seemed to last for eternity.
The sounds of battle raged,
The falling of bombs shook the earth,
In explosions that blackened the air,
With smoke and falling ash.
Then in a roar like thunder,
Ripping across the heavens,
A mighty chorus of horns rang out,
The final trumpet’s call.
At last the day had come,
The great and mighty day of the Lord.
All of creation stood still for a heart beat,
As the skies opened to reveal,
The multitude of God's great army,
Coming in force to do battle,
With the enemies of Peace, Love, and Justice.
Down shall fall Chaos in the flames of His wrath,
Torment and Oppression cast aside,
Like dried stocks before the storm.
Malice, cut away in the flashing of His sword.
Lust, Greed, and Envy, trodden underfoot,
Like the rotted grape of a withered vine.
Each cast into the pit, fuel for the eternal flame.
The world paused for a time uncounted,
Silent but for the anguished pleas,
From the followers of the Enemy.
The Lord stood firm, sword raised for attention,
Calling for a greater silence to come.
Warnings were given throughout time,
Yet they did not heed His word.
Judgment was laid from the beginning,
And now the time was at hand.
Tears slowly flowing, He too turns away,
And the fire falls from the heavens
Like rain on a barren land.
From the East to the West
All things are burnt away.
In the twinkling of an eye,
A single thought to sorrow,
As the gates of the pit are opened wide,
To receive the fallen for eternity.
Silence reigned but a moment,
With the coming of the Lord's great day.
Then the sound was broken,
With the cheering of the martyred saints.
The heavens rang with songs of praise
As the angels join in chorus,
With the blessed children of the King.
Hunger and Want are set aside,
Sorrow and Pain shall be no more,
As each child's tears are relieved.
The feast is laid at the table,
And we drink the wine anew.
Songs and dance to the Lord our King,
As eternity's day begins.
His glory out shines the heavens,
For His love to us had no end.
Like children we play in the garden,
As Man was first meant to live.
Note: I had thought not to enter, for when I think of the word “Great,” all that comes to mind is that day. Evil shall be no more, and the Lord shall reign eternal, in a blessed land of peace. As we must live now in this world, fulfilling the will of our Lord, in seeking the souls of the lost, who am I to think only of that day yet to come. That great day of God's Judgment.
