Long Grows The Shadow Of Tyranny Upon The Land

Long grows the shadow of tyranny upon the land… cold, the hand of the despot upon our liberty, falls. Who will stand, who will go, who will answer the call of the fallen…  Whose blood, did pave the streets of liberty. We few, we few men, whose lives did bleed, cry out from the grave… Come, stay the course true and live in peace forever renewed… die not the cowards curse, make sure freedom’s thirst…

Can the bards of time so eloquently lift, their voices to cry …. Give us liberty or give us death… and not be heard?  Can there be so few, yet in this land, too rally round the tree of liberty?  Whose voice shall our children dance too or labor, now; whose cheers of joy shall our wives, great … Will it be free men, or the slaves of a new plantation…

Were comes this cry for justice in our land of law… Who is it, that has turned the servant of the people, too be their master’s… Call.  Will justice be blind, in a land bartered by men, whose black robes so aptly hide their souls… within.  Let the world know, that the law is servant, of the people and the unjust judge will be overturned on appeal, to a people… True.

Woe to the tyrant whose eyes seize upon another’s life and property… thinking to entice the wicked, too engage with him, as his appetite grows bold for more…  Until, there is no more. Then, shall we hear the voice of the oppressed rise to heaven… and the Supreme Judge, of the Land, shall speak judgment upon the wicked.

Look up, for the day grows short… and the sun soon sets; then darkness will cover the wicked, for a time and a season… But in the morning, judgment comes, upon the wings of an angel, it comes… For, the tyrant shall not escape his end… it is certain… deaths curtain, shall embrace him; tomorrow and tomorrow, with an eternity of sorrow.  Greet now they makers voice, with joy… Rejoice for He alone, will bring a conclusion to this all… With liberty, we shall brake the bounds of the despot’s call… with the voice of freedom, we shall rally all.

Has Patience Become An Excuse For Failure… A nation without a vision shall parish

Patience may be a virtue… but when dealing with those who have no virtue, patients can become an enemy. We must not let excessive caution rule the day or fear destroy our hope.

We are at war for the very soul of our nation… bold strides and broad advances need to replace the pastel and mediocre efforts of the past. America must act while the People still have the framework of a Constitutional Republic to reform. Let patience have her perfect works… but work, she must.

So far, it appears that our patience is not working… In fact, it has become an excuse for failure. Patience must be reinforced with Hope and Hope must have a vision. Where is our hope and a vision for the future. It is not enough to complain. America must organize under a single banner; it must find effective leadership and resourcing capable of developing a plan and a vision that can take root in the people; too, motivate and mobilize, the Spirit of 1776. A nation without a vision will perish. Where is the plan… the vision? Where may we place our patience and hope? Who among us will lead the people and where will they find the resources to wage war with the enemies of liberty?

Those may be hard words… but I believe they are a truthful representation of our current situation; nothing appears to be working, hope is turning to despair, and with it comes the specter of defeat. America can not wait for the next election cycle to begin, our efforts must materialize in the streets of America now… Patience is not working, it has become an excuse for ineffective action and failure.

America’s leaders and wealthy are failing to heed the call of its people… the despots hold our hope at bay and our patience is turning to despair. A people without a vision, a nation without true leadership, and a merchant class, that is unwilling to sacrifice for the good of the whole, will soon turn the American Dream into a nightmare. I call upon those who command the resources, those with the ability to lead, to take the reigns of America while there is yet day light to work anew her foundations… Too, pull down the evil which has occupied our halls of government; too, restore our forefathers vision in a people who are desperate for leadership and renewal.

Vanity and Vexation of the Spirit…

All is vanity and vexation of the Spirit for by one the righteous drink and by another the wicked eat…  until the sun no more shines upon the flesh of mankind… Rejoice in the days of thy youth and be wise… but with thy knowledge get understanding. 

For all the books and wise words of the upright,  even words of truth… serve too admonish the foolishness of men… they are the substance of judgment and but weariness to the flesh if they are not obtained with understanding.  For the sum of the whole matter, regarding mans service in the Earth, is: Fear God, and keep His Commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

For God shall bring every work into judgment, and every secret thing whether it be good, or evil… it shall not be hidden.

Therefore, know that for Wisdom too be applied righteously it must be done with understanding… within the Light of the Holy Spirit.  For he who communes with his own heart, saying, I have great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they before me, will only to find that  wisdom, obtained without understanding,  is like pouring water into a broken cistern, it is vanity and vexation… of the spirit.  Amen.

Memories of the Forgiven

Memories of the Forgiven We are often haunted by memories that refuse to be forgotten… we try to hide, but they always find us.  We think we are finished with the past… done, but we can never erase…

A Summers Day

A summers day, a winters embrace, another day… in God’s grace….

An Autumn wind, and springs embrace, reminds us of God’s eternal place… of His endearing face..


And with the changing times, we are reminded God is in control…

The sun shines, the moon rises, the Stars are set in the ferment of the Heavens

And Glory’s gate is always open…


As near as a prayer, as sure as the morning… God’s majesty awakes.

And Heavens promise is renewed, in the shadow of His gates… there He awaits…

The rain comes, and the wind may blow, but eternity always knows… God’s eternal place…


And with the pain of sorrow… an awakening in the soul of man speaks of a better way…  An eternal day… where summer days and autumns winds beckon too us all of winters passed and springs renewal… in the embrace of the SON of God… there is no longer sorrow… only a better Tomorrow…

I’ve seen fire fall

I’ve seen fire fall from the sky and smoke rise so high, that the Angels did cry… I’ve heard the sounds of women and the cries of innocent  as they die… Their voice cry out for mercy, a hollow reprieve, in an empty night.  They fight for one last breath, and then silence,  speaks of death.

I’ve seen the face of vengeance and rage… of mankind filled with anger, and torn by hate… Their eyes, cutting, gazing, wondering about, seeking new victims, no doubt.  O’ man of faith is there no justice? What man steals innocence, and murders his own sons and daughters?

What pale truth the forlorn speak… hope denied, repentance lost, their murderous ways without regret…. Refusing to embrace a new hope, and a better day, the reprobate but delay… judgment day.  Can man find a better way, that his brother may embrace him with love and not in bitter anger?  Where lives the answer to this heavy burden… this perplexing riddle old?  Where can man find such wisdom, in all of the Earth, it is untold.

Shall man seek peace… o’er shall it be war?   The fool, is sooner fixed upon the lust of his flesh, his heart driven by an insatiable appetite for sorrow and death… For the fool, there is no escape… no reprieve, nor sorrows sleep.   Yet, hope doth spring eternal, to reveal, salvations hand…  in all the land.  If man would trust Christ… the night’s, bitter steel, and sin’s wage… would give way, to warmer days, and loves embrace… yeah, a better day. 

Come…  ye who are heavy laden, whose burden is great; take rest, in Christ, and He will bid thee a good night… Amen.

Man Every Where In Chains

Man is born free but every where he is in chains…” Rousseau. 

Yet, with tedious labor we do strive against the wind… against the forlorn cry… liberty once gained, yet lost in time… liberty remains a fleeting dream.  Shall we suffer the pain of tyranny or mount with wings the hallowed quest… for that which so deliberately we seek… this liberty, this faint apparition of our fathers, many.

Liberty is not obtained thru idle banter, it is the fruit of pain… suffered in our struggle for gain, where none yet appears… The wrestling of flesh, against the darker demons of men… who, with chains do bind the free, too a tree of… tyranny. Men born free yet every where in chains.

Awake therefore ye of good heart and strive no more… with the idle banter of fools. Take hold of the Tree of liberty and feed upon its fruit. Be no more bound by fear or of melancholy soul… Rise up take hold… Be bold and thy reward shall be sure. Liberty waits upon no man… its fruit belongs to the bold… its pleasures, the reward of the diligent.
