100 DAY WAR

 

DAY 38
THE RAPE OF THE PULPIT

THERE’S A “BOY’S CLUB” IN THE PUBLIC ARENA
IN THESE DAYS WHICH PROMOTES FILTH,
SEXUAL PERVERSION, BLASPHEMY
AND THE MISREPRESENTATION OF THE GOSPEL

THESE MEN’S NAMES HAVE BECOME COMMON
IN RELIGIOUS CIRCLES
AND MANY NEW PASTORS SPEAK OF THESE MEN
SO THAT THEY, TOO CAN HAVE CLOUT

BUT
KNOW THIS
I REBUKE THEM
I REFUTE THEM
I DESPISE THEIR WORDS, THEIR HEARTS, THEIR ACTIONS
AND THEIR LEADING OF MY PEOPLE
INTO THE VERY PIT FROM WHICH THEY COME

THEY HOLD THEMSELVES IN HIGH ESTEEM
THEY REFUSE TO BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ATROCIOUS
DISPLAYS OF HERESY
AND YET,
THEY ARE TOUTED DAILY
FOR THEIR GOOD WORKS

CAN YOU NOT SEE, PEOPLE?
YOU DON’T EVEN NEED HEAVENLY DISCERNMENT
TO KNOW THAT I DO NOT LIVE WITHIN THESE MEN
HAVE YOU FALLEN SO FAR THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW
HOW WICKED THESE MEN ARE?

WHAT IS TO BE THE REMEDY?
WOULD I STOOP LOW TO SHUT THESE MEN’S MOUTHS
OR DO THEY SERVE A PURPOSE TO GATHER THE GOATS?

WHERE ARE THE ONES OF PURITY
OF MY SPIRIT
TO STAND AND REBUKE SUCH EVIL?
THERE ARE ONLY A FEW
AND STILL NO ONE RISES
WITH FULL AUTHORITY TO SHUT THE MOUTHS
OF THE PROFANE
~ ~
There once was a man who lived on a hill
He gathered the people from all about
Many came and they knew the laughter and familiarity
of the house
Children ran to and fro and believed that they were safe
but within the man who lived on a hill
grew a monster
which in time
devoured every child
every adult
every world-wide fan
and brought them into the pit
of Hell
How could this happen?
You may ask

DAMNATION COMES, MAN ON THE HILL
YOU CANNOT MASK YOUR EVIL WITH FOREIGN TRIPS
AND ELOQUENT SPEECH FROM YOUR VILE LIPS
I HAVE A DAY PLANNED FOR YOU
AND ALL WHO FOLLOW YOU
ALL WHO SPEAK YOUR NAME WITH HONOR
ALL WHO CLAMOR FOR YOUR ATTENTION
ALL WHO FAIL TO REBUKE YOU

YOU ARE AN ABOMINATION TO ME AND TO MY HOUSE
BUT THE TESTING CONTINUES . . .
OF ALL WHO KNOW YOU
YOU WILL SERVE MY PURPOSES OF DIVIDING
THE SHEEP FROM THE GOATS
BUT
WOE TO THOSE WHO LISTEN TO YOU
AND DON’T CALL OUT FOR MY CLEANSING BLOOD
TO WASH AWAY YOUR FILTH
WOE TO THE PASTORS WHO LAUD YOUR WORDS
AND SEEK TO IMITATE YOU
WOE TO THE CHILDREN OF ALL THESE
FOR WITHIN THEM WILL BE THE PUNISHMENT OF THE CRIMES
OF YOUR MOUTH
EVEN UNTO YOUR OWN FAMILY

GUARD YOURSELF NOW?
YOU WON’T HAVE A CHANCE
YOU WILL PAY FOR EVERY VILE WORD YOU HAVE SPOKEN
YOU WILL PAY FOR EVERY PERSON YOU LED
INTO THE PIT OF HELL
YOU WILL PAY FOR ALL THAT YOU HAVE DONE
AGAINST MY PEOPLE AND THE INNOCENT
AND YOU WILL PAY PUBLICLY
