'A TRUE NEW AGE'

 
By Gene Johnson

Isaiah 11:1-10
 
In these scriptures penned by the prophet we have the promise of a new age to come where the curse will be lifted from the earth and an Eden like peace and renewed balance shall come to settle, over all creation. This shall be the age where Christ and His saints will rule over the earth, Satan shall be bound for almost 1000 years and all nations shall pay Him tribute and homage.  Even the natural elements, the weather and the animals will no longer be under the turmoil of the past and carnivorous beast and plant life alike shall finally be at rest.
 
This is the glorious hope of the church! What an incredible future lies ahead of us, yet so little seemed to be said about it these days. We need to stir up this hope in our lives as we see the great darkness creeping in around us in the world. We are going to need this lively hope to sustain our hearts in days to come. All the time I find myself longing for a new age of innocence to return to our world and culture. A time of purity, gentility, tenderness and decency. A world free from the evil, grossness and crassness of these present times...
 
Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus!!!
 
 
 
+++INNOCENCE RETURNING+++
 
 
 
AS I LOOK AROUND
 
AND SEE
 
THE MORAL DECAY
 
AND GROSS DARKNESS
 
ALL ABOUT ME
 
I FIND MYSELF TRULY
 
WISHING, HOPING
 
FOR A BRAND NEW AGE
 
OF PURITY
 
OF SWEETNESS
 
AND CHIVALRY
 
 
WHERE GOOD KINGS RULE
 
AND RIGHTEOUSNESS ABOUNDS
 
WHERE THE DRAGONS HAVE BEEN DEFEATED
 
DRIVEN UNDERGROUND
 
WHERE LORDS AND LADIES CELEBRATE
 
WHAT IS VIRTUOUS, REGAL AND TRUE
 
WHERE GOODNESS, KINDNESS
 
AND GENTLE WAYS ARE PURSUED
 
 
OH SWEET NECTAR OF VIRTUE
 
HOME OF DELIGHT
 
OH HOW I LONG FOR THEE
 
THAT SACRED HEARTH
 
WHERE HOLY FIRES BURN
 
WHERE ALL IS AT LAST
 
SWEETNESS, COMPLETENESS
 
AND PURE LIGHT
 
WHERE WINTERS FINALLY PAST
 
 
WHERE LIONS LIE DOWN
 
WITH LAMBS AND THEN
 
THE CHILD SHALL FROLIC
 
BEDSIDE THE COBRAS DEN 
 
THE COW AND BEAR SHALL GRAZE
 
SIDE BY SIDE
 
ALL EVIL HAS ENDED
 
ALL GENOCIDE
 
THE CURSE THEN LIFTED
 
THE FEAR, THE FOREBODING
 
DISAPPEAR
 
NO LONGER TO HOVER
 
UPON THE AIR
 
TO SEE AT LAST
 
INNOCENCE RETURNING
 
A NEW WORLD...
 
BRIGHT AND FAIR!
