MAJESTY

My faith tells me that there is a land

Brighter, far than day!

If I cannot repeat what is already said,

There is nothing left to say.

.

.

Solomon repeats, “There is nothing new!”

Everything’s already done!

What we say has already been said!

Nothing new under the sun!

.

.

That is not going to stop what I have to say,

Though may have been said many times!

But has it been stated poetically?

In words put down in rhyme?

.

.

A catchy phrase can capture a thought,

That has been stated over and over,

But is it remembered?  Register?

Like, as you go out the door!

.

.

Like, heaven, we know there is such a place!

Christ said, “I go to prepare…”

If we cannot believe what Jesus said,

Face it!  We have nothing to share!

.

.

Aside from the fact that there are folk

Who have been there and returned!

I believe what is written in God’s Word,

These words are true, I have learned!

.

.

Often repeated the words Jesus spoke,

“I go to prepare a place!”

“I will return… Receive you to myself!”

What Christ tells you cannot efface!

.

.

Or assume as imagination,

Again and again repeated!

All the writers, specially Jesus and John!

Who repeatedly treated!

.

.

Though considered visionary!

John’s words I have truly accepted!

Do not knock it!  Many since have had visions!

Some we have not rejected!

.

.

All Apostles, other writers, too,

Agree on what Jesus said.

In fact, it is the hope that kept them pure!

Large portion of Living Bread!

 .

.

“I go to prepare a place for you…”

Of course, He does not explain!

I believe God delights in a surprise!

Surprise it will remain!

.

.

Until He reveals it, Himself in heaven!

Does God take joy in surprise?

Catch His appearance, His resurrection!

Smile as He opens blind eyes!

.

.

We are all blind until He says, “Behold,” then we open our eyes to see Majesty!
