Don’t Be Left Behind ( by Fenny West)

Don’t Be Left Behind

 

Don’t Be Left Behind
Hear the clarion call
The day is far spent
And the night comes
When no man can work.

Don’t be left behind
Hear the Master’s Voice
Sounding an alarm.
Time to make the right choice.
Set before you is life and death
Blessing and cursing
Choose life and live.

Don’t be left behind
Be like the five wise virgins
Ready at His coming.
Be not like the five foolish virgins
Caught unprepared, heady, or not ready.

Don’t be left behind.
As in the Days of Noah
So shall the last day be
It was business as usual
And the ark was closed
And the rains came unabated.
The ark carried away those
Who sought safety in her.
Those who mocked, or delayed
Found it was too late, to their dismay.

Don’t be left behind
As in the Days of Lot
So shall it be in that day.
Many put their fingers in their ears
priding themselves in self-righteousness
Shunning the warning of the Righteous God.
Sodom and Gomorrah went up in flames
And only Lot and his family escaped, just.

Don’t be left behind
The current shaking of the earth
Is enough warning for the wise.
O sleeper, awake! Awake from slumber.
And Christ shall give thee light to see
Come Now into the Ark of our time-Jesus-
The Son of the Living God – our Salvation,
Our Saviour, Sanctification, Righteousness.

1Thess4:16-18, Matt24:37-39, Luke17:26-30, Eph5:14
