 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Behold, the days are coming soon,
When God makes a new covenant;
Upon the sign of the blood moon,
That will become as permanent.
Unlike covenants of the past,
The day He took us by the hand;
The covenant that did not last,
When we had broken His command.
This covenant that He will make,
With Israel after those days;
Putting His Law for our sake,
Written on hearts to know always.
No longer shall each of us teach,
Each brother and his neighbor;
For we will know just how to preach,
Of our leisure and labor.
He will forgive iniquity,
Remembering of sin, no more;
Rather having the ability,
Confessing for getting a cure.
The Lord gives the sun for a light,
While laboring through the day;
The moon and stars during the night,
While we rest after we pray.
If this order departs from God,
Then shall all of the offspring cease;
No longer you honor and laud,
Our lifespan will then decrease.
If Heaven above be measured,
And foundations of earth below;
The exploration as treasured,
He will cast off as the winds blow.
The days are nigh, declares the Lord,
When the city shall be rebuilt;
Because many that have ignored,
And are not filling any guilt.
The whole valley filled with the dead,
Ashes covering over the land;
Our worst nightmares that we dread,
For ignoring of His command.
