Kingdom Come

blessed are the have-nots

blessed are the broken

blessed those the world forgot

of these the Lord has spoken

found in the Beatitudes

rushing to His kingdom

meek and humble attitudes

watch the Spirit bring them

Christ announced a Jubilee

where debtors find a pardon

those in prison are set free

the desert becomes a garden

blessed are the pure in heart

for they shall see the Father

peacemakers also have a part

with the persecuted and martyred

rejected by the powerful

who thought they knew the letter

but grace to sinners wonderful

found simple faith was better.

Some puzzle over what or where,

or when this kingdom starts

Jesus said, it is very near

it begins now in our hearts –id



The Bible says “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and unto God, the things that are God’s.” It also says, “Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.” Jesus told Pilate, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight.” If you feel you must fight, don’t use carnal weapons. God has a better way. Pray. Pray for those in authority. Pray for Caesar and pray for the seizers who mistakenly think they must seize their share, or push their way to get to the front of the line.  If compelled to walk a mile, smile, and walk two. People may ignore what we “say,”  but seldom what we “do.”  It’s the way of the Kingdom. -id
