Scriptural Poetry

ARE YOU READY?

Are you ready, Brother, to turn your life around

beside the river with Sabbath prayers

There lay your burdens down?

 

Are you ready, Sister, to wash away your pain

To bare your soul while at Christ's feet

His blood to cleanse sin's stain?

 

Are you ready, Faithful, to stand in battle dress

To face His foes and defend His law

Only on His grace to rest?

 

Are you ready, Watchman, to spare not your outcry

For all to repent and turn from sin

And to ask "why will you die?"

 

Are you ready, Holy Saints, patiently with prayer

To keep His commandments and have faith

And on Jesus cast all care?

 

Are you ready, Martyr, to love with dying breath

God's enemies as they test your faith

To lay down your life in death?

 

Are you ready, Christian, for the shout of trumpet voice

When He calls you out by name ...

Will you tremble or rejoice?

Rev.14:12 - Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

I Thes.4:16 - For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump (or, trumpet) of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (17) Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

John 5:28-29 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
