PART THREE: UNDERGROUND ASSESSMENTS
Ireland (where abortion’s still not law)
was first to post the Book of Truth’s store
of messages and “crusade” prayers –
meant world-wide, since everyone shares
salvation needs. But the book names
only Anglophone countries, and aims
at them special analyses
of some of the faults and fallacies
that they harbour. The cases I take
will show exactly what’s at stake.
Tame: Britain and America’s case;
not Australasia’s. Cut to the chase.
Though their beauty and ample supplies
of natural resources win a prize,
flak Australia and New Zealand cop
for their Church leaders. Not much chop;
huge disappointment. What have they done
about their “pagan culture”? The fun
and games will, I bet you can bet.,start
to kick in if there’s no change of heart.
I’ve had dealings with Australia. Big,
big enough for a big enough rig
of Church establishments to provide
alternatives that override
an Establishment that makes it hard
for crisis fight-backs by the old guard.
But the Remnant still somehow thrives,
and the Holy Spirit still contrives
to spur Novus-Ordo believers
into faith-drought thirst-relievers.
New Zealand? Doesn’t rate very high
on Australian agendas. Why
relates to her fewness-of-people
that question-marks the bravest steeple,
even when quakes don’t strike hard. The might
of Modernism’s in its hold: tight
New-Zealand-wise, where, its neighbour knows,
the shortage of alternatives shows.
The Underground is rightly not banned –
when it’s too tellingly undermanned.
Not that the rest of the world’s left out
of the prophetic picture. Great clout
marks items detailed in four broad fields
that prove the power that evil wields:
personages of wicked intent;
states of soul where we need to repent;
harm from nature or willful plan;
laws against God by the rule of man:
scripture, dogma, prophets all combined
in one blessing to the open mind.
6 Then there’s those who watch. and those who teach
in every information reach
of life but most pulpits. Servants paid
by us seem mortally afraid
to do their duty – though atoned-for
by media pundits at full bore
free from the censor, if not from censure.
Yet indifference (like dementia)
leaves Satan-targeted world-wide hordes
lodged not with the Lord but suspect lords
Fisherman Peter tends a new net,
now that “full” is not the faith pews get:
pulpits pulp it to a mixed-bag hash.
But Underground lies a sounder stash
(though overall Remnant’s the buzz word).
The Dove Descending’s still to be heard.
close partner to the Lamb of God.
Why’s “Strait-is-the-Gate” so seldom trod?
Catacomb-shelter God’s forced to give.
EPILOGUE: GETTING A REAL CASSANDRA CASE
Of course, the new earth needs survivors
to people it, though the contrivers
of the new world order do not plan
on any kind of heaven for Man.
They are bent on hell for us, both now
and later. Me, spared? I can’t see how.
There’s a Tribulation to get through.
I might. But then I mightn’t want to.
There’s no preempting the bitter end
but through death. Death be that good a friend?
