The Son Is Coming

S. Thomas Rhodes Bridge, Wilmington, North Carolina

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be”
(Matthew 24:36-37)

In reconciliation, reparation

Through consecration and desperation

In elevation, even demonstration

The Son is Coming

In a glorious appearing

Through the rays of the clouds

Beyond visitation

Higher than structural towers

The Son is Coming 

In Message or codes

Parables that be

In the imagination of believers

Come to set us free

The Son is Coming

Recompensing the lost

Wages of daily prayer

Answering and intervening

In meditation or adoration bare

The Son is Coming

Off the cross, down from Heaven

From the tomb, overcoming Hell

Spread the incense, read the Psalms

Pray the Word, toll the bell

The Son is Coming

In the Spirit, in the flesh

With his mighty angels

From God, bringing the saints

Penetrating every angle

The Son is Coming

Patient in waiting, poised in deed

Guided by the scripture, sowing the seed

Healing the masses, following Him

Come find us among the tares of wheat

The Son is Coming 

With A Soft Fingertip

Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina 

“But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not” 
(John 8:6b)

What were You writing in the sun-soaked sand?

An inscription of an answer to the judgment of man?

A poor woman stricken with a lustful will

Yet forgiven in an instant because Your mercy is real

But others set to stone her

Maligned the woman they did

Misunderstood the doctrine of Christ

That neither spoken or unspoken sin are hid

But go in peace You said to her

For her sins hath been forgiven

She was certainly perplexed

Yet a new life had been given

So this is the example, the merciful reality

That we are made whole through our spirituality

Not ours but Christ only given from above

Through the death of the Son because of God’s love
