CLOSER, Day By Day
Today's events.. should just astound you.
Take a good look.. all around you.
I'm convinced... we "are" the final generation.
Evil leaders.. are in charge
In all life's aspects.. small and large.
America is being judged... a failing Nation.
Our "Tolerance", is expected
For the sins, that GOD rejected.
The "rules" for right and wrong... are being changed.
Despite our protests.. of this state
I fear we've acted... much to late.
Our lives because of this... are rearranged.
Some laws.. now legislated
More than once, have demonstrated
Corruption in high places... is endured.
Pressures on.. our populations
Our jobs they give, to other nations
Our chances for success... goes unsecured.
We don't honor.. GOD today.
We go blithely, on our way
Not removing all the evil... that's entrenched.
Many of us.. are dismayed.
Far from GOD, we all have strayed.
We allowed the HOLY SPIRIT... to be quenched.
Years ago.. when we were strong
We tried hard, to do no wrong.
Now the evil that's upon us... has been earned.
Multiplying.. our distress
This whole country's in a mess
Rejecting good for evil... GOD is spurned.
All these things.. have come to pass
Prophesized, from first to last.
The Bible has predicted... these events.
Even rougher times, are nearing.
Keep your faith, and be GOD fearing.
Now... is not the time... to straddle fence.
Those who love GOD, will be protected.
Those who do not, will be rejected.
The evils of this world... our GOD will smote.
GOD has promised, to remove us.
So it really does, behoove us
To keep looking up... and listening for that "note".
When that final trump, is sounded
All our joys, will be unbounded.
The "Rapture" of HIS saints will be completed.
Those who are left here, on this earth
Will have no chance.. of any worth.
The "Rapture " of HIS church won't be repeated.
Keep your faith, and be encouraged.
Don't let these trials.. get you discouraged.
The promises GOD made... HE'LL surely keep.
GOD is faithful, and won't hurt us.
HE'S sworn.. never to desert us.
We'll be with GOD... in one quick glorious sweep.

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
Go to now, [ye] rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon [you].
Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
Ye have condemned [and] killed the just; [and] he doth not resist you.
Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
James 5 :10-11
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
