Countless theories advocated
Diverse scenarios abound
Ever feel exasperated?
Befuddled by confusing sound?
The need to find some solid ground?

‘End-times’ thrills the merchandiser
The fear of the unknown his lure
Speculator, improviser,
The only thing he knows for sure—
It fascinates the insecure.

Minds that dwell on rash conjectures
Are prone to not receive the true
They’ve been fed perverted Scriptures
By lucre-led who misconstrue
To elevate their point of view.

Prophets wrote as God dictated
Inspired as Holy Spirit led;
Those of faith have long awaited
Fulfilment of the things they said;
These are the truths for days ahead.

Study and you’ll understand them,
The Holy Spirit will shed light,
All unfolds as He has planned them;
His Word will set your thinking right
Put every faithless lie to flight.

Though it sees the end-times nearing
To faith the future’s fabulous,
Looks for Christ, His soon appearing—
To mansions grand He’ll translate us—
The raptured Church’s exodus.

I'm thoroughly impressed with the poets on FW. It takes such time and effort and trial and error to make the story fit the confines of rhyme and meter.

All that to say... great poem! I love the line "It fascinates the insecure." Brilliant.

Masterfully crafted, with wonderful imagery. I love the second-to-last stanza especially. Thanks for sharing!

Though I don't know much about the various poetry forms as yet, I really enjoy this one. (So much to learn so little time) But it is writers like you that have inspired me to try. This is a very thought provoking piece, which never fails to draw me in.

My favorite part:
"Minds that dwell on rash conjectures
Are prone to not receive the true
They’ve been fed perverted Scriptures
By lucre-led who misconstrue
To elevate their point of view."
I think it was the witty use of "lucre-led" that really struck me most. Thank you for the inspiration and congrats on the EC!
