Poetry Friday: Next Time It Will Be Different
From John MacArthur's The Miracle of Christmas. (Previously Published as God With Us). 1993/1995. Zondervan. Page 135.
The First Time Jesus Came:
He came veiled in the form of a child.
A star marked His arrival.
Wise men brought Him gifts.
There was no room for Him.
Only a few attended His arrival.
He came as a baby.
The Next Time Jesus Comes:
He will be recognized by all.
Heaven will be lit by His glory.
He will bring rewards for His own.
The world won't be able to contain His glory.
Every eye shall see Him.
He will come as Sovereign King and Lord of all.
