‘Historical Mockery’

“…The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statues and broken the everlasting covenant…” -Isaiah 24:1-23

 Historical Mockery
 
I stand...watch
a blended time
tic-toc, tic-toc
on goes the clock
right, left, right, left
as all the earth will rock
 
I sit...hear from the top
their politics‒
as the clown went flop
so now a virus tries to chop
all eyes away
from the capturing sway
 
the heels of gog
already consuming the fog
run, hide little frog
you sat there like a log
tail between legs‒
shameful little dog
 
rock, rock, rock
tic-toc, tic-toc
the button's been pushed
told by the words of God†
 
laugh, play in your sexual immorality
drink, be jolly
it won't halt
the coming somersault
 
sway, sway, sway
splash, splash, splash
 
a timings of the clock
alls right on time
you don't hear
lost in deceptional minds
the broken vine
refusing to read the rhymes
all the important signs
 
be well, be well
the call came
the call went
messages sent
messages ignored
you've become the whore
the keys rest
in the hands of the Lord†
 
not, not, not
stop, stop, stop
too late, too late
the riddles from God†
to stop them
‒think not
 
you pray and betray
what's up, what's down
you'd rather play
instead of heal
this here...the deal
all's for real
 
rock, rock, rock
the timings of the clock
you didn't listen to reason
now it's out of season
so how about
something loud
from way beyond the clouds

Note: The photograph was taken March 2, 2020. I haven’t put up the whole set yet, but it was quite amazing once I realized what was being shown to me. You can’t deny what’s in that picture. I didn’t see that image with my naked eye. What I saw was these beautiful cloud formations with rainbow colors at the bottom of them. I’m sure they were ice crystals because the temperature was getting chilling and it rained that night. What came out in the photographs was a different story!

(March 2)―This not the first time I write about Isaiah’s vision of the last days. ‘The Sending of Lies’ was the first time. The same things are pointed out this time. But the words in ‘Historical Mockery’ are different with a whole different meaning then ‘The Sending of Lies.’

The Earth’s DevastationSee, the Lord is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; He will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants—it will be the same for priest as for people, for master as for servant, for mistress as for maid, for seller as for buyer, for borrower as for lender, for debtor as for creditor. The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. The Lord has spoken this word. The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the exalted for the earth languish. The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statues and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth, its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left. The new wine dries up and the vine withers; all the merrymakers groan. The gaiety of the tambourines is stilled, the noise of the revelers has stopped, the joyful harp is silent. No longer do they drink wine with a song: the beer is bitter to its drinkers. The ruined city lies desolate; the entrance to every house is barred. In the streets they cry out for wine; all joy turns to gloom, all gaiety is banished from the earth. The city is left in ruins, its gates is battered to pieces. So will it be on the earth and among the nations as when an olive tree is beaten, or as when gleanings are left after the grape harvest.

They raise their voices, they shout for joy; from the west they acclaim the Lord’s majesty. Therefore in the east give glory to the Lord; exalt the name of the Lord, the God of Israel, in the islands of the sea. From the ends of the earth we hear singing: ‘Glory to the Righteous One.’ But I said, ‘I waste away, I waste away!’ Woe to me! The treacherous betray! With treachery the treacherous betray!’ Terror and pit and snare await you, O people of the earth. Whoever flees at the sound of terror will fall into a pit; whoever climbs out of the pit will be caught in a snare. The floodgates of the heavens are opened, the foundations of the earth shake. The earth is broken up, the earth is split asunder, the earth is thoroughly shaken. The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in the wind: so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion that it falls—never to rise again. In that day the Lord will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below. They will be herded together like prisoners bound in a dungeon; they will be shut up in prison and be punished after many days. The moon will be abashed, the sun ashamed; for the Lord Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders, gloriously.―Isaiah 24:1-23
