Devil's Wrath (Revelation 12:12)

"Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them!
Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea!
For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath,
because he knows his time is short."

Time is running out,
almost gone,
the devil's wrath,
sins last hurrah,
before our Savior's sighting.

The devil dumps
the final onslaught,
wrecking relationships,
ruining romance
between covenant beloved.

Sowing stress
and stretching beyond breaking point,
parental bonds with child.
Disrespecting venom
vomited out
on humanity,
regardless of creed or colour.
Kindred consumed with hatred
that is not their own.

Potent poisons
in plentiful supply,
unkindly offered
to drown more sorrows,
sourced from the accusers armory.

Rebellion first found in heaven
courses condemned
through Eden and beyond,
tempting humanity
to follow him into forever darkness.

The ready remedy
blood bought
with salvation sacrifice,
can be received right now,
but the eventual ending of evil
is yet to come.

But it will come,
and usher in a peace
and rest and joy,
so unimaginable as yet.
If we could glimpse catch it now,
we would never again wish
to align ourselves
with the devil's wrath.
