The Feast of Tabernacles - The Call For Action

10/2/12
-------------------------
Reveled through the world His words are cherished Many read the peace of His words, yet works be perished We see the problems without the power to cure it Lacking the wisdom we need and God’s Holy Spirit The Feast of Tabernacles calls many to action And with it comes happiness and endless satisfaction Five aspects will lead us closer to the mind of God He shows us a clear path though our ways are flawed The paramount action is respect to one another To be present, formal and kind to each other What we wear physically and spiritually is important too To be humble and dedicated in all that we do The second call for action is the call to rejoice To enjoy physical food and drink—the desire of our choice To stimulate the mind with gladness and cheer And be thankful for our trials as we ponder the year The third act is important and it is to recall All the blessings and promises of the coming Kingdom of God To read back in scripture to the great men of faith Allowing your mind to rest from the wreck of sin’s ache As we recall we find it necessary to recommit To be re-awakened in His life—to make something of it We may want to acknowledge where we have fallen short in the past Not dwelling in the desires of physical life—the things that won’t last The last course of action will help us toughen the shell We must recharge to build—keep refilling the well By the Spirit of God we are quenched in barren terrain Releasing sheets of merciful, cool rain Many will suffer before the peace begins But continue we must until the very end I wish all could know just what is in store God will reveal it eventually—just knock on His door Encouraged by the Spirit we become the light Defying worldly governments—refusing to fight Shortcomings are inevitable and mistakes will be made It is not difficult to fall—to be easily swayed “People can be free, but still enslaved" But in the end, all will have the chance to be saved Look to the Bible and try what you read Perhaps you’ll discover where the narrow path will lead
*inspired by David Hulme*

    Wonderful poem; it really would be a different world if everyone tried to do what they read in the Bible. I like the many rhyme schemes also.
