The Seraph of Stern Storm

The Seraph of Stern Storm

Soren, once the Lord's sword, the stern storm of thunder
First order angel, Seraph, with spirit split asunder
Fell conflicted, torn, over humanity's health
Suckered into plans of Satan's slithering stealth

Wan cheeks, with fading smiles, sway to the host's beguile
A parasite's pawn, putting flesh and blood on trial
Playing faith's futility, as their returned God
Honing convincing face as Christ's crux in facade

The masses sighing, crying, worshiping, doting
The one who masquerades as God - flying, floating
Metaphysical miracles blind deceived eyes
When one wields power, even elite believe lies

And yet, The Truth shines like a beacon in the night
Calling His children to turn away from false light
Here comes the Word! The Way! The Wonder of Prophesy!
Soren, agent as anti-Christ,  burns for his heresy

I love the phrasing- original....This is indeed paranormal....had to read it three times....We have so many anti-christ parading themselves as servants of God, deceiving people with miracles....but we have our guide which is the word of God....When we study God's word and ask God for wisdom, we should be able to discern between Christ and anti-christ (My thought)....Lots of love

Hi Rose....God tells us that many will be deceived in the end by one performing miracles and claiming to be God...and also that the delusion will be so grand that even the elite may believe it...(Matthew 24:24, 2 Thessalonians 2, and verse 10, Revelation 13 and Revelation 19, )  and that is why His Holy words are what we must cling to in order to recognize all He has foretold will happen before Christ's return. Even though this is a fictional tale, I based it upon those scriptures of warning....In prayer God will give his people wisdom to discern and see the prophesy unfolding....I long for the day that all truth will be revealed to this world as to who Jesus is and how He fulfilled His promises in the Kingdom to come...amen!  Thank you for your discerning spirit in what I write...Means so much...I respect you.  Love n Hugs, xox

My Dear Poetess Cherie,

There came Satan's pseudo Seraph
From the depths of iniquities dire den
To masquerade as the mighty Lord
The Savior of women and all men

For a while, Soren had the upper hand
His subterfuge convincing many hoards
That mankind had been lied to
About the coming of the Lord

But then, dear God put His foot down
Bade His children see the light
Then the truth to them was evident
That only He could e'er be right

Hugs, Peace and Love,
Larry xxx

Larry...You NEVER cease to amaze me!  This poetic response in comments is the PERFECT complete summation of what I wrote....You got it!  Soren looked the part, and came with miracles and signs to be as convincing as possible under Satan's rule to deceive the world and lead as many away from the truth coming as a blinding light.....Just my imagination creating a possible scenario.....Whoever is against Christ is the anti-Christ....and will be very convincing to mislead so many into believing they represent good....We will have to be diligent to know the real God of creation and His words, or be led astray by one who is very convincing  to promise false immortality.  I love your poetic response...thank you!  xox Love n Hugs

My Dear Cherie,

I am always so humbled by your beautiful words of praise.  As you know, your powerful prose takes me to far away places, and my writing hand just seems to glide automatically, penning a response.  Thank you for always being so inspirational.

Hugs, Peace and Love,

Awwww...thanks T!  I do love doing narratives in poetry....It is a challenge to make a story in a short format and keep enough details that it makes sense to the reader and leaves them with their own ideas of where the story goes....It means more than I can express to you that you believe in me and my writing....I hope my books will not disappoint you....I plan to put a lot of time and detail into them...if only I can convey the imagination of my mind in words....I will try....With your faith in e, I feel I can do anything...lol....What took you so long to find me in my life?  Won't take  your influence for granted....That is for sure.... Love you.   Kisses xox C
