Christ Returns in all His Glory
Watch and Pray by pharp
Poem of the Month contest entry

Christ's return will outshine the brightest star
We'll see His coming...glorious by far
God's Holy Word warns us to watch and pray
...remain faithful, not to be led astray

When our Savior returns, He won't ignore
men's evil deeds - there's much to answer for
Believers will be sealed with righteousness -
God's anger will war against wickedness

Satan's tricks are vexing - put to the test
as uprising surges - hatred expressed
Conflict moving at an alarming speed,
while many focus on riches and greed

While this plague continues around the world,
civil unrest is spreading and unfurls
Satan's evil plan - to kill and destroy,
placing doubt in men's heart as a decoy

God's giving us time to make the right choice,
each time a soul is saved, Angels rejoice
It has often been preached; end time is near,
as we look at our world, the signs are clear

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Luke 21:36

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Mark 13:32

But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

2 Peter 3:10-13 (KJV)

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Matthew 24:42

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
