A One Blink Stand

 
If you give it any thought at all
Life’s not provided with recall.
We’re issued but one page per person…
That page can be erased or worsen.
 
To make the most of life on earth
  God provided man with the new birth.
It will get us through our visit here
And prepare us for the new frontier.
 
Some think that death will be the end…
But the slap of death will only send
Our souls to Heaven or to Hell!
It’s a truth we’ll never live to tell!
 
Wouldn’t it be smarter to prepare?
To look beyond and to compare
This world against Eternal Life?
Why bargain blessing just for strife ?
 
We shouldn’t think about it twice.
It’s Satan or it’s Jesus Christ!
From the dawn of time God gave us choice.
We’ll either suffer or rejoice.
 
  We will wind up in either place…
Stand in the Lord’s or the devil’s face!
What if there’s no God some dare to state!
But what if there is and we’re too late?
 
When this composition neared completion
I considered a complete deletion
I launched my question to the Lord
“Father, isn’t this too harsh, too hard?”
 
He said, “The Bible is a Book of facts…
You’re not to stress on how sin reacts.
But it’s, also, a Book of living hope
There are two sides to each envelope.
 
Man picks the one which presents Christ
Simply hides behind His sacrifice.
If man regains what the devil stole
Then all will be well with man’s soul.”
 
I conclude that life’s but one degree
In the concept of Eternity
 The next blink of eye is Beulah land…
For this present life is but a one blink stand.

Dedicated to Janet Kay
Whom I know believes the same way

 
 

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it.
From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them.
And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened.
Then another book was opened, which is the book of life.
And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done
. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them,
and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done.
Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire.
This is the second death, the lake of fire.
And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life,
he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:9-15
