Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Blessed Among Women


Mary is 'blessed among women'
not because of her qualifications
courses studied exalted prestigious
but because of her heart humility

all Mary’s grace came from Christ
Mary is vessel instrument of God
Mary exemplifies transformation
Mary exemplifies divine restoration

never to be forgotten in all eternity
God became human through Mary
virgin birth slays sin curse sanctified
true salvation is in Christ not Mary

Mary a human like every one of us
God born human like every one of us
Jesus Christ was a human being born
Mary gave born to God as flesh born

Jesus Christ flesh incarnate one of us
Jesus Christ flesh tempted as one of us
Jesus born our brother not a stranger
Jesus born suffers all temptation danger

Christ must grow in us as he did in Mary
Divine Kingdom of God is born in us
Holy Spirit through Christ is born in us
Holy kingdom of God is all around us

the Kingdom of God is not built of stone
the Kingdom of God is not Vatican Rome
the Kingdom of God is born in living flesh
thirty nine stripes conquers diseased flesh

Mary became blessed by accepting Christ
Christians become blessed by accepting Christ
through symbolic baptism reborn in Christ
Christ in a reborn Christian living as in Mary

all that is temporal disappears wasted despairs
heavenly soul created remains for all eternity
virginity of Mary was God's temporal restoration
paving God’s purpose choice accept salvation

    Heavenly soul created remains for all eternity.The main purpose for being this short time on earth is to do all our best to keep this heavenly soul pure and take it back to heaven to be a neighbour to its creator.The story of suffering for Mary and her son is an example for us.
    3.42': And when the angels said: O Marium! surely Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of of the world.
    3.43': O Marium! keep to obedience to your Lord and humble yourself, and bow down with those who bow.
    Verses from Qoran show the value of Mary. (Report) Reply

    Yikes! Dear Craddock can even rock the rocks. A awe-inspiring poem from the powerful poet. Yes it good is there in everyone - the only thing is one has to find the divinity in him just like believe in TRINITY.

    'Jesus Christ flesh incarnate one of us
    Jesus Christ flesh tempted as one of us
    Jesus born our brother not a stranger
    Jesus born suffers all temptation danger'

    Anyways - A philantraphic message from Craddock. A loud cheers to the poet! Also read my poem for contrast - Crazy-mazy Lee! Buzzy-fuzzy Bee Lost in Marathon Battle! (Report) Reply

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
