Dread Just Ahead

The days ahead will bring great dread.

Many will be fearful of death and will give in to dread.

Then, they will be lead to greater deceit

which will cause their defeat.

Down and deceived, they will see

how the thread of dread

stole my bread they once enjoyed not long ago.

That bread was me, the giver of life

and hope eternal.

They turned their heads and engulfed the lies that

promised much without considering their end.

The lust of the eyes consumed their minds

and they spewed out the bread

 that once gave them life

through my light and my might

when all else in their lives was dead.

They will be left in total dread.

Once again, I offer my bread of life and light

to make my people bright.

For what remains will bring great pain

in the midst of my latter day rain.

Accept again my bread of life and once you do,

new hope is yours without dread.

Hebrews 2:15 (Passion Translation) By embracing death Jesus sets free those who live their entire lives in bondage to the tormenting dread of death.
