Sunday evening

Sunday evening
I lay in bed
I think of the week
that has passed

What an intense
week it has been
if you follow the news
you know what I mean

The national debt
of the USA
reached its ceiling
it blew me away

Crop circles appeared
in several places
are they really among us
those alien races?

Also in the news
the pope appeared
he spoke to the astronauts
about their fears

The regular updates
on several wars
Libya Pakistan
wherever more

But of course
the best of all
was Armageddon
disaster for all

Mr Camping
a preacher man
had prophesized
that the world would end

Using the media
for all to see
exactly when
this all would be

A lot of his followers
believed this man
and so they prepared
for the world to end

What a disaster
it did not come true
Mr Camping man
now what to do?

Fortunately
I also saw
news real sweet
which gave me joy

There was a sloth
crawling about
moving real slow
looking around

A busy road
he wanted to cross
with cars and busses
he’d surely be lost

A policeman came
and saw the sloth
what was this animal
thinking of

He could never cross
that busy street
the cars would knock him
off his feet

So he stopped the traffic
and picked up the sloth
then crossed the street
and dropped him of

Thinking of this
real sweet news
inspires me
for new things to do

Still Sunday evening
and in my bed
but now I’m thinking
of the week ahead

Hmm, very interesting poem. I spend my Sunday evenings in church every Sunday evening. I don't ever watch the news nothing never good is going on. I did hear about the guy talking about the end of the world. I did not believe cause theBible teaches us that no man knows, not even the son of man (name Jesus gives himself) knows but my Father only. So whenever someone makes a predicton I just ignore it. If the Bible says no one will know then no one can out smart God. Armageddon will happen at the end of a 7 year tribulation period not after 42 days. However somethng is something going to happen in 42 days I have to go back and read the book of Revelations I know there is something there about 42 days.

Thank you for sahing and good luck! :)

Hi jc4351 and thank you so much for reading my words and for commenting. And I agree, the Bible indeed says that no man will know, not even the Son of man so let alone mr Camping lol. The Timeline, interesting matter. The book of Revelations, there's a lot to be found in that book.

Wishing you a WonderFul day.

One more thing. Personally I don't believe in the end of the world. I believe in the end of time as we know it, as is written. The word apocolypse means nothing more than revelation, which is happening all around us every day. Things that were once secret are being revealed these days. So yes the days of the 'apocolypse' have started but there will be no Mel Gibson surrounded by flying rocks.

Keep the Faith and walk with the Light.

I do believe there will be a full destruction of this earth for the following verse:

"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea." Revelations 21:1. Sometime between chaper 20 and 21 the earth and heaven will be destroyed. God doesn't record how or why he does this after he casts satan, his false profits, and all those not found iin the book of life into the lake of fire for one last and final time.

There is actually three heavens (one from the earth surface to the atmosphere, one from the atmosphere, then one will the abode of God). I believe just the first and maybe the second one will be destroyed with the earth that we know. Al those who are not cast into the lake of fire will still remain with God.

I hope and pray you are written in the book of life and we will be with Jesus Christ forever. God bless :)

Dear jc43351, thank you so much for this explanation. Admitting that does look like total destruction of this planet.

And thank you so much for your hope and prayer. You touched my heart and my soul. May God bless you and yours.
