The Other Side of the Cross

by Gregory Booker  
8/12/2012 / Poetry

There's something amiss when the creation resist
all that the Creator stands for.
As I gaze at the reflects a world lost
With Christ knocking on every Door.
Man thinking himself good...Did that which he thought he should.
With charges of blasphemy and plenty of religiosity
Refused to believe the Word...being filled with animosity.

Delivering the Lord to the Court of courts.
And so the trial did promptly begin.
He was alone, having not a character witness nor even a friend.
And when the judge could find no law against him.
Washing his hands, I'm sure he did what he can...
All...except free this sinless man.
Guilty...Guilty was the outcry from the crowd!
And the Law that was ...became no law at all and yet....God smiled!

So there our Savior laid with out stretched arms.
Demonstrating His love despite the harm.
And while every man is born in sin...
The injustice we profess don't compare to the injustice he was placed in.
There's something amiss when the creation resist..
All that the Creator stands for even then.
But an empty Tomb was God's reward for a work well done.
Not to be hid the Lord shoned forth His only Son.
For Jesus showed His love toward all mankind.
And now there is life after death in only His Name you will find!

But......Let the other side of the cross speak also.
That what and who we are has surely been exposed.
For in God's love so openly displayed....
We did show our wretchedness that day.
And God's Law of Love resoundly defeated...
Our law of justice which we misdeeded.
Our anger truly showed only to see the peace of God flow.
And our fearfulness for no reason illuminated God's love for all seasons.
The Cross is the meeting place for all of this....
And believe it or not, the Creator let the creation insist!

So let us remember the wisdom the Cross is meant to bring.
God will have his day of justice that righteousness which is fairness ought ring.
For the other side of the cross speaks well of his return.
Sitting on the right hand side of the Father...this he earned!
But there are yet those who chose not to believe...
Like doubting Thomas...They say "not by faith but by sight must I see!"
But blessed are those who believe and have not seen!

For no more is God a mystery and neither is he a dream.
For you see.....Grace and Mercy has been born out of Injustice.
And it is the other side of the cross which gives us this message.
That our way of justice means nothing when Truth demands His Return.
For this is why the Word declares the Earth shall burn
And we who are caught up in His Rapture shall bear witness..
Revealing that the Other Side of the Cross was a lesson that went Unlearned!

"Inspired Writings of a Prophet for Jesus the Christ" was released in 2012 and has a press release at link
God is looking for a few good watchmen to stand at the gates from the walls of Jerusalem and declare a few things by His Word.
