Tale of a Messiah

He made them believe
He was the real messiah
The mystic leader 
who would take them to Zion
His followers threw themselves 
into icy pools of water 
Rended their clothes 
in a frenzy of belief 
When he came out of the Sultan's home 
wearing a fez 
Only a few belivers stayed on 
his wavelength 
How long must we wait for 
the true messiah to reveal himself?

    This is something to think about. I think that no one will know, until it's time. so we have to stay on the right track. Thanks for sharing. ... Lucilla

    seeing they cannot precieve, hearing they cannot hear. when the rapture comes they will still be here. revieling the real messiah who was already here.

    Many false prophets will make themselves known before the real ones show up. Cults and such always held a small amount of fascination for me... just what drives people to follow such ridiculous notions? Cool story!

    Great write, Matthew! I do believe, those who want to will be led to Zion by Jesus Christ, the only Messiah. God himself, through His Holy Spirit, will tell everyone of us who listen to Him, who the Messiah is, when He comes to reign over us and prepare us for the Kingdom of His Father. Amen. Blessings, Hanitra

    makes me curious to know who this one was! What's a fez? by the way, I don't like golf . I think it is a big bore but if I were ever single again, I think it would be a sport worth taking up. haha
