Heavenly Colony

Date Written: September 29, 2017


I have not yet reached my goal,

Or have completed the course;

But I run so that my soul,

To reach Christ who is my source.


The source of my salvation,

And I run for winning the race;

To have a conversation,

Letting Jesus Christ embrace.


I am not a winner yet,

But I will never look back;

As I strive I will not fret,

Of anything I might lack.


So I will lengthen my stride,

Running towards my goal to win;

Remembering to abide,

So I do not stray to sin.


A heavenly call from God,

Offers Jesus Christ as prize;

Curing me where I am flawed,

Giving wisdom to be wise.


If your faith would be mature,

Then you are thinking this way;

God can be making you pure,

And no need to go astray.


God will show you how to think,

Guided by what we learn so far;

Avoiding any strong drink,

As to be a shining star.


Follow and pay attention,

Examples that are living;

Listen for comprehension,

Importance of forgiving.


A heavenly colony,

Where we hold citizenship;

So we live in harmony,

And godly relationship.


We look to be with the Lord,

Be humbled and glorified;

And to be in one accord,

With Christ who was crucified.

    Great poem, but don’t let the preacher tell you God said things that he didn’t say. Humanities heavenly colony is dependent upon us overcoming the oppression the capitalist regime has put upon our people. To find “God”, we must find the strength within ourselves to prove ourselves to the Christ who was crucified.
