prophet's view

Sometimes I close my eyes
Open my mind
And dream of the burning future
I am aware of the vacuum
Between hope and oblivion
The shooting of rioters and looters
Devastation and doom
Before crossing a blood meridian
A line that to cross
Means we can never return
To peace, to society
There is no safe place
All of our dreams lost
As our cities burn
Where violence and theft embrace
Stealing all of our dreams
Condemning our children
All future generations
And all of our hopes
As civilization
Enters twilight sleep

Matthew 24:29-31

"But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. "And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. "And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.
