The Fire Is Upon You
Poetry By Anthony James

* My Strength Comes Not From Me, Nor Any Man- But The Lord, Jesus*

I am a man,
I walk about
Talking to myself everyday
Creating some kind of truth
Something I might like to be true, of me
And I go on as such
And build up much
Of this and of that
And I'm alive, living and breathing
And this is my human proof
That my belief's are truth.
But, The Fire.
The Fire
The Fire is away now, from you
But the Fire will come upon you
Flames roaring over ye
Trying to breathe
But it's not easy-
It is a terrible effort- sitting there A-Fire!
What did you think?
God was a liar?
Well, then.
What were you thinking,
Lost man?
False truths have led you astray-
Lost and gone off
What of Faith
Man, don't make us cry-
Faithless man
This way, in the Fire, you will die-
Faith comes from the Word of God.
You read the Word
God gives you Faith!
The Word is Alive
It goes through your ears
It goes through your eyes
It is eaten by the very Soul, you are-
And in this you will Know About Him!
The Gospel.
What He did
That He Died For Us Alone On The Cross
When the Fire is upon you
// Don't you ever forget this//
Only Jesus Can Save you, man.
Don't forget this Truth, ever.
The Fire of God Will Burn To Death
Jesus Will Save The Repentant Heart
And the Loving Heart, That Loved Him
He deserves your Love,
For it is by His Love Alone that you will Live Eternally-
If you do, at all.
Where are you heading?
To Death
To Life

Author notes

1 Corinthians 3:13 the true character of each individual's work will become manifest. For the day of Christ will disclose it, because that day is soon to come upon us clothed in fire, and as for the quality of every one's work-- the fire is the thing which will test it.

1 Peter 1:7 The sorrow comes in order that the testing of your faith--being more precious than that of gold, which perishes and yet is proved by fire--may be found to result in praise and glory and honour at the re-appearing of Jesus Christ.

Zechariah 13: 7-9
7. “Awake, O sword, against my shepherd,
against the man who is close to me!”
declares the Lord Almighty.
“Strike the shepherd,
and the sheep will be scattered,
and I will turn my hand against the little ones.
8. In the whole land,” declares the Lord,
“two-thirds will be struck down and perish;
yet one-third will be left in it.
9. This third I will bring into the fire;
I will refine them like silver
and test them like gold.
They will call on my name
and I will answer them;
I will say, ‘They are my people,’
and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’”
