War of the Ages (A Poem)

War of the Ages

Battle raging, incomprehensible fight;
flashing swords, shields, scarlet red at the sight.
Angels battle with authority and power.
Demons killing, raging, losing ground by the hour.

Spirit hovers over the field,
watching, awaiting the Saints to yield.
Chariots empowered both day and night,
flying thru cities flashing glorious light!

Doors of heaven opening and closing.
Warriors declare the doors imposing.
Enemy’s dismay the violence of Seven,
when these doors release the powers of Heaven.

Gideon’s armies over all the earth,
obedient to Fathers supernatural worth,
see our fights are His to win or lose.
But, call it forth in the time we choose.

The time we choose? Let this no longer be!
Let’s sacrifice now, His victory we’ll see.
The battle is on, this end time play,
It’s no time to go our own way.

And in the quiet place of worship we stand,
two or more, hand in hand.
The vision gained, the purpose clear,
voices releasing the weapons they fear.

Gideon and I in loving submission,
battle won or lost, our weighty decision.
Will I chance or not in faith proceed?
The battle rages on, my call, my heed.

No longer is the time for idle division.
Lie down to fight, this humble mission!
“It’s here, it’s now to you I call,
Do your part? No! Do your all!”

Battle raging, incomprehensible fight;
flashing swords, shields, scarlet red at the sight.
Angels battle with authority and power,
And to you I call, this is your hour!
