A Day is A Thousand Years


(From 1st/2nd Peter)

God has commanded the present heavens and earth to remain until the day of judgment.
Then they will be set on fire, and ungodly people to destruction sent.

For to God, one day is as a thousand years – a key to what the prophets meant.
The Lord is not slow to keep his promises, he wants all to be saved and repent.

The day of the Lord’s return will surprise like a thief – immediate and terse.
The heavens will disappear with a great noise of heresy, heat melting the whole universe.

Every debt of the earth will be revealed – foreclosed – and debtors taken in the hearse.
To be burned as chaff in the fires of the furnace – the earned and un-repented curse.

So you should serve and honor God: live your life not as the dead but in Christ alive.
Look forward to the day when God judges everyone, and try to make it arrive.

For the heavens will be destroyed and into the hot depths of Hell all the earth will dive.
But God has promised us a new heaven and a new earth where justice will always thrive.

    Arya, Thank you for you kind words. Being 'Born Again' means being born again in the spirit of Jesus Christ, and it comes when we accept Him as our Lord and Savior (and reject the false gods of other religions) . I have no doubt that some of the prophecies of the old and new testaments have spread in ancient times and therefore seem recognizable, but all TRUE prophecy has had and will have it's complete fulfillment in Jesus. So I urge you to read the good news (The Gospel of Jesus Christ) and to pray to Him (and only Him) for your salvation.

    This is exactly in conformity with the Hindu prophecy of Kaliyuga coming to an end and bliss thereafter. Very well recounted expectations in your brilliant poem and then we shall all be 'Born Again' (Report) Reply

    It's clear you are a reigious man. I like your
    direct presentation. No sense beating around
    a burning bush.May I invite you and others
    to read my poem 'A Circle Of Angels'.

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
