Stop! Look! Listen!

[Jesus said] “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” (Revelation 22:12)

STOP! For a minute, and look at our world,
The world that man has misused;
LOOK! At the mess he’s made of it all;
Air, land and water abused;
LISTEN! To how he abuses himself
With noise that brooks++ on the obscene.
STOP! LOOK! And LISTEN! You’ll see, I am sure,
Just what it is that I mean.

STOP! Then, and wonder how long God will wait
Until His judgment begins.
LOOK! For the church to be raptured and then
See how He punishes sins.
LISTEN! I beg you, to what God’s foretold.
His Word tells what is to be.
STOP! LOOK! And LISTEN! For He’s coming soon!
Then, you, His glory may see.

Praise the Lord!

Charles H. Baker March, 2000
