‘The Long Haul’ (Yeshuah)

‘The Long Haul’ (Yeshuah)…In this meaningless life of mine I have seen both of these: a righteous man perishing in his righteousness, and a wicked man living long in his wickedness. Do not be overrighteous, neither be overwise—why destroy yourself? Do not be overwicked, and do not be a fool—why die before your time? It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other. The man who fears God will avoid all extremes.—Ecclesiastes 7:15-18

The Long Haul (Yeshuah)

did they buckle in
for the ride
did they prepare


I†, Yeshuah†, will explain

many sought preparations
in a different way
a worldly way

they didn't worry about
food, proper wear, proper books
they didn't concern themselves
with 'supplies of need'

it was 'supplies of want'

they didn't pay attention
to the distractions
for they were distracted
by the distraction

they didn't bother to question
why so much
they didn't bother looking
as the distraction was
right before their faces

they were busy doing
what the punisher set
before them

buying and selling
using and abusing

they were busy
keeping maliciousness breathing

praying went into confusion

they began praying
for things
material emptiness

the rich hoarded the wealth
the poor began to die
the poor who knew God†
and Myself†
the poor who knew
what gifts are
who understood grace
and mercy and forgiveness

the rich struck deals
souls were sold
for wealth became the idol
people became the idol

I† was mocked
God†, the Father†, was mocked

the beheading of My† church
took precedence
the enemy was patient
one country at a time
it began to make its mark
drive its impact

two enemies
one hidden
one in the open
pretending to bring peace
but was doomed
in secret
betrayal between the two

death spread
darkness started small
in small places
then it spilled across
the lands

the Father† backed away
letting faith conquer
letting the people watch
as what they deemed
faith to be

it was never faith
it was the mockery of faith

the darkness rested
on the people
God† handed them over
to their desires

only a small remnant
remained in true faith
the Father† hid them

for you, the reader
to understand your fate
to understand
how they lost God's† protection

sin didn't win
discipline did
the ways of the world
get too big after a period of time

the Father†
the creator of all things
knows, is always aware

man fools himself
pleading there is no God†

God† lives always
His† kingdom is always
I† am always

Notes: The photograph David chose is from September 4, 2019: My 5:55 Lake Visits. It was taken at 5:55:09. There is something indeed in the photograph. Click on the link and learn. This was one of the first times at 5:55 p.m. that I was asked to take photographs at this lake.
