Poem: A Brew Comes Forth

On August 06, 2014
From earthly senses, dwells a brew
Calling itself truth;
It denies God’s Righteous burning
And look! See the turning?
Turning away from
Him who’s Heart
Is Yearning
To walk the Garden of Spirit’s Light?
He sees His children walk in the night.
What started in the Spirit
Has become the design of the flesh man’s plight
Divided now between the sexes
The church is filled with divorced ex’s
Hallelujah chorus not directed to the King
But to the notion that sex is
What made you turn away from your first love?
Remember the Spirit came, like a dove?
You welcomed the world of Father, Spirit and Son,
Then ascended your own pedestal and thought you won.
But you have lost, get back down and see
That Yeshua calls for men to be free
Of the flesh that demands it be
Worshipped more than He.
All bow down is not a posture of oppression,
But of Liberty.
Worshipping the Lord is setting all things right.
Taking back the day from the night.
Turning truth be told
With Spirit bold
Until all is upside right with Light.
Putting Christ into the mixture
Will make sex… not a fixture
But a gift, an after thought
Not the night’s premier picture.
Putting Christ first cannot be underestimated
You will not be castigated or emasculated
From the your gendered destiny
Yet I believe you will see
You have been liberated, you have been set free!
Flesh first or Spirit? Hmmmm… let me see?
Flesh first or Spirit? Should there even be a question?
A pause in revelry of Spirit, Truth and Righteousness in Christ?
And ought my body preordain,
That my Christ remain
Hidden in another person, not like me
You’re a sinner still, can you proclaim
My Spiritual destiny?
What has the church wrought upon herself,
The mirror of flesh deceives
And like a den of thieves, buys and sells
Worthiness and authority like false watches up their sleeves.
Bargain me this, you who hold the keys;
My life for yours? I think not
My King will not be pleased
That I rejected His greatest Love
For one of these.
Brother, walk along with me
Find the Heart of God with me
I choose to lay down my life for thee,
But please, don’t ask me to appease
The flesh and turn away from
My Lord who to this day, is your Master and mine.
And in this way, remarkably defines both male and female
As Divine in His own image.
So finally, once and for all,
Let’s mutually agree,
That you and I are free.
