Prophet's Journal - Fire In The Temple

Posted Yesterday, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


FIRE IN THE TEMPLE
 
What of 
The great cathedral 
With its towering steeple?
 
As we watch it burn
What can
We discern?
 
Smoke and flames
Billowing skyward
What is God's word
 
Concerning great artifacts 
Burning?
Are we turning
 
From form and fashion
From concocted passion?
From treasures of sight
 
To holy might?
Does the smoke
We smell 
 
Tell
He's looking for a place
To dwell?
 
Not made with man's
Hands
A reprimand 
 
Of cherished history
Contrived 
Inventions of pretentions
 
Now receiving 
His attention
Fire in the temple
 
Consuming
Misbegotten worship
Holy anger
 
Places in danger
High steeples
Representing people
 
With hidden agendas
He's had enough
Time to get rough
 
With compromise
No surprise 
To man's eyes
 
Gotten so familiar
Our light is darkness
Our ears...

Prophet's Journal: Prophetic Oscars - Far From Shallow

Posted Feb 27th, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


At the Oscars the other night, Lady Ga Ga and Bradley Cooper sang the very touching song from A Star Is Born entitled "Shallow."
Some of the lyrics are:
Tell me somethin', girl
Are you happy in the modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there somethin' else you're searching for?
I'm falling
In all the good times I find myself
Longin' for change
And in the bad times I fear myself
Tell me something, boy
Aren't you tired tryin' to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain't it hard...

Prophet's Journal - Valentine's Day Massacres (In Search of Love)

Posted Feb 15th, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


Beloved,
This word was written February 15, 2008. Not much has changed in society, except for the frequency of attacks on innocent victims. We look for answers to our downward spiral but there is no lasting answer short of the discovery of the depths of love displayed by the slain Lamb on the cross of Calvary. May we be in pursusit of this sacrificial love, that our hearts may be changed and this dying world witness love personified.

"Be prepared for Me, for I shall come unto you in a blinding splendor, and you  shall not be able to bear it if you have been regarding the darkness about you....The Great Revelation is unfolding, and the ushering in...

Prophet's Journal - If I Don't

Posted Jan 19th, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


IF I DON'T
 
If I don't 
Drink deeply
If I don't 
Wait
 
If I don't 
Listen
If I don't 
Partake
 
Of grace
I don't 
Have light
Or life
 
I am left
To myself
Amidst 
Darkened shadows
 
Planning
Without God
Preparing 
For mockery 
 
I must
Wait
I must
Live by grace
 
I must
Be still
Until
I hear
 
The voice
Preparing my choice 
Way before
My involvement 
 
Melody written
Before time began
Creator's hand
Has penned my plan
 
I just receive 
Believe 
Live
Freely
 
Drinking deeply
Listening intently
Quietly
Resting
 
Ingesting grace
Beholding His face
I don't 
Strive
 
I don't 
Connive 
I don't 
Just survive
 
I flourish
Completely nourished 
In love
My life
 
My light
So bright
Even in night
No fright
 
I hope
In His appearing
Dawn always nearing
Darkness just a season
 
Purging my reason
Setting me in place
To gaze
On His face
 
I won't 
Leave stillness
I won't 
Perpetuate...

Prophet's Journal - Where I Belong

Posted Jan 6th, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


WHERE I BELONG
 
Our hearts long
To know
Where we belong
 
We are continually 
Searching 
For the soothing song
 
That welcomes us 
Home
From our endless roam
 
We can't settle 
Got to prove
Our mettle 
 
False courage
Leaves us
Discouraged 
 
We dodge our
Weakness
Like a sickness 
 
Can't admit 
Being broken
Making us a token
 
Just filling a spot
Going through
The motions
 
We want to be
Genuine 
Deep down 
 
To quit playing 
The clown and drop
Our pretense 
 
But fear
Prevents us
From being real
 
Can't express 
How we feel
Nobody knows us
 
Really
Gotta keep 
Guarding
 
Always hardening 
Our heart
Afraid to depart
 
From self protection 
We keep our collection 
Of wounds 
 
Covered up
No place to sup
And be real
 
To let it known
How we feel
Somebody's gonna...

Prophet's Journal - Word of a Skeptic

Posted Dec 15th 2018, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


WORD OF A SKEPTIC
 
You might call me
A skeptic
I'd rather be one
Than to live in the septic 
 
Tank of status quo
Nowhere to go
Dressed in a bow
 
Tie-d up all pretty
Looking for pity
From somebody
Who knows
 
Their true condition
Hiding behind that partition 
Separating the man
From the plan
 
God has ordained
Without the strain 
Of false recognition 
 
Thinking I'm just fine
Standing in line
With my ducks in order
Living from my brain
 
Oh foolish performer
Ducking behind that corner
Of self-righteous order
 
What a stink!
All you do is think
Submerged in that tank
Of intellectual fodder
 
Stale to the bone
Destined to...

Prophet's Journal - Shooting

Posted Nov 10th 2018, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


Beloved,
Another mass shooting this past week. Is there an answer to this "horrific" pattern in our society?
Even the shooter himself said on social media that all we do after one of these shootings is to pray and wait for the next one. I believe he was expressing the sadness of his own heart about the utter futility of a lonliness birthed in a "value system" which is void of answers to meaningless expressions of harm that just go on and on....

Prophet's Journal - Everybody

Posted Oct 7th 2018, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


EVERYBODY
 
Everybody 
Wants to be understood 
You are loved 
 
Your 
Recognition must come
From above
 
Come find
The secret place
A simple knowing
 
As you
Behold
His face
 
That He
Is enough
To satisfy
 
Your eye
For approval
By removal 
 
Of the lies
Of this world
Constant swirl
 
Seeking attention 
Some mention 
Of significance 
 
Do you feel me? 
Do you see me?
Do you hear me?
 
Empty desire
Persistent inquiries 
To be known
 
Before our life
Is blown
In the whirlwind 
 
Of insignificance 
Will somebody dance 
With me?
 
I need
Certainty 
Unending plea
 
Untill I discover
My Lover
Waiting for me
 
To simply
Come
Receive 
 
Believe 
Who you are
No superstar 
 
Just loved
From above
Complete 
 
At His feet
Don't need to 
Compete
 
Or be understood 
He is
Your good
 
Uncover those lies
You'll be surprised 
Finding your identity 
 
Deep in His...

Prophet's Journal - I Am Free

Posted Sep 16th 2018, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


I AM FREE
 
As I drink
As I imbibe
Deeply
So sweetly
 
My heart is
Lifted above
By eternal love
Whispers of the dove
 
Calling cooing 
Wooing
Me away
From now
 
To dwell
In eternity 
Free
No longer bound
 
Completely surrounded
By grace
Lifted
Above this place
 
In wonderment 
Vast fields to ponder
Flowing streams
Joyful dreams
 
Come true
Because of
You
My Lover and Friend 
 
As we spend
Our time
Together
We will never depart
 
Heart to heart
We imbibe
We reside
In oneness
 
Total blessedness 
In the secret place
Face to face
No more trace
 
Of the temporal
So simple
No longer to wander
Searching for emptiness 
 
Holy kiss
Satisfies my soul
Making me whole
Heavenly bliss
 
Encompasses my being
With forever seeing
Off to reality
I am free

Prophet's Journal - Nine One One

Posted Sep 11th 2018, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


Beloved,
It has been quite some time (17 years) since the tragedy September 11, 2001. This word was written soon after that unthinkable intrusion upon our nation's soil. It was, at that time, a blunt and direct call for lessons to be learned that would result in a turning toward God and away from all too familiar idols. Although the pain of that event has mostly subsided, the cry for repentance is echoing down the years of unheeded warnings. May this word...

Prophet's Journal - One Thing

Posted Jul 29th 2018, 12:00 by Prophet's Journal on Prophetic


One Thing
 
One thing
Do I desire
Do I require
 
My joy
My freedom 
Lifts me higher
 
As I seek
As I inquire
My heart is inspired
 
To dwell 
To behold 
To know
 
Where He lives
Who He is
Why I exist
 
Heavenly bliss
A pure kiss
My longing persists 
 
Until I find
The One
So kind
 
Leaving behind
Everything 
Learning to cling
 
To One
My Lover
My Friend
 
Letting all go
That isn't Him
Beginning again 
 
In simple grace 
Beholding His face
Changing my pace
 
From hurried strife
Confused life
Hopeless endeavors 
 
To favor
In His presence 
Imbibing the essence
 
Of His nature
Full flavor
Of Truth
 
Setting free
Joy completely 
Mine
 
As I dine
At His table
Fully able
 
To flourish
As I'm nourished
By the One
 
Who owns my...
