The axe is ready

Just like a lumberjack,
He's got His axe.

    It is ready.
    His hand is steady.

Cut down, it will.
For the fiery landfill.

     He will examine the roots.
     And if the tree has rotten fruits.

Tossed into the fire,
with no place to retire.

      Just like the fig tree,
      saturated with selfish debris.

Cursed right up to the ground.
Withered away, stripped of its crown.

      Love, peace and joy.
      In self-control to enjoy.

Goodness, kindness and gentleness.
To pass the test of faithfulness.

       In patience, guided by wisdom and grace.
       Not impossible in a Spirit-led case.

He has with Him a winnowing shovel.
Unable to corrupt by flexing worldly muscles.

       Reward, they'll finally attain,
       when He sits to thresh out the grain.

Gather the wheat into his barn.
While the chaff who have been stubborn,

        thrown in the fire that never goes out,
        while they scowl and grind their teeth, and pout.

(Inspired by Matthew 3:10 and 12) 

It is my desire to study the four gospels. Writing poems helps me put some thought into it thereby making it fun to learn and remember. I was stuck on the book of Matthew for years and never really completed more than the first five chapters until I began writing ‘the Matthew Series‘. Now, I’m revising the contents of the book of Mathew by writing another series of poems titled ‘Inspired by Matthew‘. This one will not be as comprehensive as the Matthew Series and may not be in an orderly sequence. This particular poem is the second in the series. I hope you enjoy reading each piece as much as I did writing them.

    1. If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. if I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but do not love, I gain nothing. 1 Cor: 1-3
      Love is the fulfillment of the law. God is love. Therefore all that we do must be done in love. That is the greatest fruit of the most incorruptible seed.
      Smiles and love!🙏🏼🎀🙏🏼

            1. Hahaaaaa….quite a birthdate 😁😅😁
              I dont think I can forget it ever….
              True…the absence of love can destroy a soul in the most horrible way….
              And the infusion of selfless love into dying rotting veins can pump life into any hardened rock….
