Hearken to the cries from barren seas,
Still wastes for want of root or bough.
Not to pumping steels that stand alone,
Full-grown plantings in a wilderness sea,
Sucking earth's blood for greed and excess,
Their avarice lubricating superfluous parts.
Already their excuses are ripe and hardening,
For the emboldened fruitage judged by fire.
Though daring, self-willed, they melt like wax,
That those who are scorched may glorify God.
For the trees they have planted must surely die,
That the fruit remaining in Godly fear may live.
Foolishness on stilts risks lives above the deep,
Their return tries His patience once again.
Wilting buds quaking on steel branches,
Waiting to be caught alive in their beds.
But this warning against contemptuous ones,
Shall serve as a reminder to men of a future age.
For carrying out perilous works to
extract oil at sea 167 men of the
'Piper Alpha' North Sea Oil Platform were killed by fire on July
"Wherever he turned his eyes, everything that they fell on was seized with
terror; and wherever the sound of HIS VOICE reached, all who heard it
MELTED LIKE WAX
AT THE TOUCH OF FIRE". "Then My son will convict of their Godless deeds
the nations that confront him. This will correspond to the
storm you saw. He
will taunt them with their evil plottings and the tortures they are soon to
endure. This corresponds to the flame.
And he will destroy them without effort
by means of the Law
that is like the fire." (From 2 Esdras 13:3,4 & 37,38 NEB).
HIS "VOICE" IS THE SPIRIT LAW OF GOD AGAINST
LEADING TO THE CONDEMNATORY SPIRIT "FIRE" OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
WHERE WILL HIS "VOICE" REACH NEXT?
