Today... 'The Coming One ' - Poem by Roy Allen
Look we for another or are You the One?
The long promised Saviour and God's Only Son
Prophesied since the dawn of earths history
Truly God manifest in the flesh is He
He is the One Who is and Who was to come
The forerunner of the heavenly kingdom
Such knowledge does not come by inspiration
But by the Holy Spirit's revelation
Look no further for the Coming One has Come
And has established His heavenly kingdom
Look closely at those things that John had been told
And there Your Lord and Your God you will behold
The lame are walking and the blind men can see
And the lepers are healed from their leprosy
The dead have been raised and the deaf hear once more
And the good news is being preached to the poor
For when we have ears to hear and eyes to see
Enlightened minds to understand prophesy
Then as we consider what was said to John
We can see that Jesus is the Coming One

Poet's Notes about The Poem
And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples and said to Him, 'Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another? '
Jesus answered and said to them, 'Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.'

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'The Coming One'
