Are You Ready

I am coming.
Are you ready?
Are you wise?
Or foolish?
You forget
I keep My promises.
You think Revelation is
only hyperbola.

You’ve joined the
Neither hot nor cold
I spew you from My mouth.
Your salt has lost
its savor.
You knock
but I don’t know you.

You foolish virgins
you claim
you want
to see Me.
Your lamp is empty
of My oil.
You only pretend
to be ready.

Accept My power
to fill you.
Accept My grace
to forgive.
Accept My suffering
to heal.
Accept My cross
& be ready.

(Matthew 25:1-13, First Thessalonians 4:15-17, Revelation 3:14-18)
