take inventory

what’s your story

are you of this world

or of God’s glory?

  

And I saw

when the Lamb opened one of the seals,

and I heard,

as it were the noise of thunder,

one of the four beasts saying,

Come and see.

And I saw,

and behold a white horse:

and he that sat on him had a bow;

and a crown was given unto him:

and he went forth conquering,

and to conquer.

  

Of this day

yes,

this very day

now ending perhaps beginning

no middle

road

counting the ways

of this very day

would you say

“I am Christ’s, I am the Lord’s,”

or

too busy for any

all

of that

going to maybe make time

sometime

later

gotta be takin’ inventory

here there every which where

24 hours in a day

reducing what most important in all this life

to

a minute with the Bible

liable to by lyin’

in sayin’ spend that much time

getting life-giving nourishment

while sittin’ in the drive-thru window line

sounds of double cheeseburgers

playing in your head

more

than

the

Words of God

would you like to biggie size that?

your order of this day

yesterday

no morrow

eternity of sorrow

constant sorrow

any time

any place

for God’s glory?

Or are you just another

sad

walking dead story?

Just another goat going to the left

of what is right?

  

When

the Son of man shall come in his glory,

and all the holy angels with him,

then

shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another,

as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

And he shall set the sheep on his right hand,

but the goats on the left.

Then

shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father,

inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat:

I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink:

I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Naked, and ye clothed me:

I was sick, and ye visited me:

I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Then shall the righteous answer him,

saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee?

or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in?

or naked, and clothed thee?

Or when saw we thee sick,

or in prison, and came unto thee?

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch

as ye have done it unto one of the least

of these my brethren,

ye have done it unto me.

Then

shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

For

I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat:

I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

I was a stranger, and ye took me not in:

naked, and ye clothed me not:

sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Then shall they also answer him,

saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison,

and did not minister unto thee?

Then

shall he answer them,

saying,

Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch

as ye did it not to one of the least of these,

ye did it not to me.

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment:

but the righteous into life eternal.

  

When

the Lord returns

end of days

Day of the Lord

can

you

be honest

ye

sheep

ye goats

of every land?

I wonder

oh,

how I wonder

when the call goes up yonder

how many ever took real time

to ponder

weigh

what is most important in this life?

  

I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day,

and heard

behind me

a great voice,

as of a trumpet,

After this I looked,

and,

behold,

a door was opened in heaven:

and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet

talking with me;

which said,

Come up hither,

and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

And immediately I was in the spirit:

and,

behold,

a throne was set in heaven,

and one sat on the throne.

And

out of the throne proceeded lightnings

and thunderings

and voices:

and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne,

which are the seven Spirits of God.

And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal:

and in the midst of the throne,

and round about the throne,

were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

And the first beast was like a lion,

and the second beast like a calf,

and the third beast had a face as a man,

and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him;

and they were full of eyes within:

and they rest not day and night,

saying,

Holy, holy, holy,

Lord God Almighty,

which was,

and is,

and is to come.

And

when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne,

who liveth for ever and ever, 

  

God’s people

will

be

preserved

  

And

after these things

I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth,

holding the four winds of the earth,

that the wind should not blow on the earth,

nor on the sea,

nor on any tree.

And I saw another angel ascending from the east,

having the seal of the living God:

and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels,

to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

Saying,

Hurt not the earth,

neither the sea,

nor the trees,

till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

And I heard the number of them which were sealed:

and there were sealed

an hundred and forty and four thousand

of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Of the tribe of Juda

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Reuben

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Gad

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Aser

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Nepthalim

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Manasses

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Simeon

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Issachar

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Zabulon

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Joseph

were sealed twelve thousand.

Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

And I beheld,

and I heard

the voice of many angels

round about the throne

and the beasts

and the elders:

and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

And I beheld,

and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven,

saying

with a loud voice,

Woe,

woe,

woe,

to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels,

which are yet to sound!

adding to the inventory

building a reward in heaven

or

increasing the heat of hell

no excuses

no escape

no other path to take

either of the Lord, Christ’s

or

belonging to the devil

riding the back of that old dragon

straight to hell

  

For they have sown the wind,

and they shall reap the whirlwind:

it hath no stalk:

the bud shall yield no meal:

if so be it yield,

the strangers shall swallow it up.

it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

Then

shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins,

which took their lamps,

and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

And five of them were wise,

and five were foolish.

They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

And at midnight

there was a cry made,

Behold,

the bridegroom cometh;

go ye out to meet him.

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil;

for our lamps are gone out.

But the wise answered,

saying,

Not so;

lest there be not enough for us and you:

but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

And

while they went to buy,

the bridegroom came;

and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Afterward

came also the other virgins,

saying,

Lord, Lord, open to us.

But

he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

Watch therefore,

for ye know neither the day

nor the hour

wherein the Son of man cometh.
