If the Lord Came

From Blog12

If the Lord in all his glory
Came down to visit America,
What then? What then for us?
For me? For you?

If the Lord in all his glory
Were suddenly among us,
What works would burn?
What monuments would crumble?

If the Lord in all his glory
Were burning in your yard,
Would anything or anyone
Within it long endure?

When the Lord in all his glory
Appears in blazing power,
Will you then be rising?
Will you be his own?

Soon the Lord in all his glory
Is coming to Jerusalem...
And saints will rise, and sinners burn,
And he'll be all in all.

For as the lightning comes from the east
and shines as far as the west,
so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

(Matthew 24:27 ESV)

I suspect that when he comes even less will survive than most of us believe.
