Unbelieving World Judged

Fire and brimstone raining down,
People dying all around,
Bitter cursing, growing gloom,
Stubborn mankind meets its doom.

Dying seas and rotting fish,
Can't escape it; only wish
An ending or a morning star
But hope has fled to somewhere far.

Note: Why do I think about such things and write about such negative things? Because they are in the Bible. There are wonderful promises in Jesus, but also serious warnings for those who reject him.

The first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, and these were thrown upon the earth. And a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

--Revelation 8:7-9 ESV

Is this what you want for my life
Do i just need to learn the great purpose of sacrifice
Do i lay my heart on the line
So it can be devoured by lions
Do i get nothing in return
So i can see the ultimate discern
Am i the string that holds it together
But feels like it will brake and wont last forever
Do i give up what i crave
And stand here in the pit to be brave
You are the rock that i stand upon during a flood
And you did shed your pure sin free blood
So tell me Lord what is your desire
My heart hurts and burns with love like fire
You paid the price for my lack of faith
I have dreams of you I'm running this race
The world is filled with total disgrace
People will fall while the beast they chase
I don't want this world full of sin
I want to please you and win
Conquer the flesh, let my spirit begin
Oh Lord fill me with all you have
So i can do what's right and make you glad
Show me the way to go on this road
This place we call earth i call home
Let your spirit arise and let my burdens of lack
Be taken away off my back
I want a love i can not have
It's you i need very bad
So open my eyes to your heart Lord
And let your will be done with so much glory
Let me end this disrupted story

The previous post is a poem I wrote when I was feeling like there was not person on earth that would really be there for me. But I knew even though I felt this way God is the ultimate One who will satisfy me forever on earth and in heaven. I am here for him not for me.
The poem is called "Come LORD Jesus Come"
