The Kingdom of God Suffers Violence

RPG
Sarin
Kalashnikov
M-16
TOMA
Gas canister
Lynching noose
Molotov Cocktail
Kerosene
Machete
Butcher’s knife
Club
Cigarette
Fist
Foot
Teeth

Somewhere today

Nairobi
Los Angeles
Ankara
Bangkok
Damascus
Kinshasa
Juarez
Rio
HIndu Kush
Kabul
Dallas
Medellin
Malatya
Mumbai

Somewhere else tomorrow
Same same it seems

But not the same
Never the same

“When you see these things come to pass…”
“Consider the fig tree…”
The beginning of the end
The end is the Beginning
And so we declare
Death is done for
Dawn sends its early light
And we stand in hope and expectation.
Even so, Maranatha.
