Mighty Hero

“Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man?
The steadfast love of God endures all day long!” - Psalms 52:1

Debris clutters the yard. Countless wooden
fragments. The metaphor of dead wood awaiting its final disposition is
blinding. You see it from your balcony. The arrogance of your
soul. You see it as a victory. The joy of your heart.

Although it was once a tree, it
Exploded to an enormous degree. Drool slips from your
lips as you find fault in it. You imagine superiority. Yet in its
midst lies decay. Insects. Poisonous vines. Your
Brethren. Beneath it rests a yard stolen, yesterday and
tomorrow, from a family by your treachery.

While you gloat and rejoice in perversity, what
Jesus sees in you lingers under shrouding shadow. The wretchedness and
vacuity. The evil. The treachery. The blood and bones of innocent
prey still on your hands. Still between your teeth. This is what the good
Lord, Jesus the Christ, sees in you.

Rejoice! Jesus is there for all who turn to Him in truth. Sincerely.
Thief. Traitor. Partyer. Teacher. All rejoice when He listens.
Hearkens.
Saves.

This detritus will be hauled away. It will be cataloged for
burning. For crushing under the weight of death. For decomposing,
melting away to a fine dust. A dust so fine that worms, insects,
vermin of every sort will flee from to higher ground. What a
masterpiece is the glorious justice Jesus is doing in you!

Rejoice! For Jesus is there for all who call on Him in truth. Sincerely.
Soothsayers. Sorcerers. Adulterers. Prophets. All rejoice when He listens.
Hearkens.
Saves.

Your cleared your trees with stripes on my
Back. Deep furrows dug cruelly.
Certainly. Vainly. For as I have done for you,
you will do for me. From your perverse perch,
Scan my land, as you love to do. Scan it well. Count the
mighty ones tall and ripe. To the north.
To the south.
To the east.
To the west. You will remove each tree, for Jesus
commands you. He speaks and it is. You will do it.

Rejoice! Jesus is there for all who turn to Him in truth. Sincerely.
Liar. Beggar. Sinner. Saint. All rejoice when He listens.
Hearkens.
Saves.

My life.
My soul. My
Hope belong to Jesus. The
Prince of Light is my mighty right hand. He crafts me
diligently. Neither slumbering nor sleeping. He is my
Help. You belong to a darker prince. One you can touch. The
Other, not so much. He will give you what you need. He will
own you soul and seed. We will be accomplished by these. You in
darkness. Me in
light. In the
Harvest we will know who was right.

Rejoice! Jesus is there for all who turn to Him in truth. Sincerely.
Murderer. Lover of scandal. Gossip. Preacher. All rejoice when He listens.
Hearkens.
Saves.
