Black Flags Of Death And Destruction - Poem by Roxanne Dubarry

Daily, on the television news casts we see,
and also on Christian TV.
Black Flags of Death and Destruction.
Devasting lives of entire nations.
People of those nations flee for their lives.
But amidst the refugee crisis,
blood thirsty agents of death co-mingle.
They shed innocent blood on their hands,
All in the name of their religion.

They massacre all who oppose their
prophet, Mohammed. The radicals butcher in
the name of their God Allah.
And yet Jesus Christ has appeared
to several of them in visions and dreams.

Remember Saul of Tarsus, who became the Apostle Paul?
He called himself, 'the chief sinner of them all.'
He imprisoned men and women and witnessed their execution.
And yet he became converted on the road to Damascus.
He bled and died to spread the good news to the Jews and
the Greeks. He loved the Jewish people, yet he became
the Apostle to the Gentiles.

Before it is too late when death has sealed its eternal fate.
And they have entered into Hades hopeless gates-
they need to repent of their sins by inviting the
Son of Man to enter in!
