Absolute Authority (Hebrews 2:5-9)

As glorious as flaming angels are,
Was anything entrusted unto them?
God did not let them rule a single star,
But gave the world as the domain of men.
And Jesus Christ claims all authority,
And He redeemed His people from their plight.
Though He descended to mortality,
He’s now exalted, given His birth-right.
And absolute His power now holds sway,
And nothing is exempted from His reign,
Though you may never see it in your day,
Until that time when heaven’s shores we gain.
Have faith – the substance of the things not seen –
And you’ll be given this all-mighty King!

Luminescent (Hebrews 1:3)

The glory of God is shined out in the Son:
The radiant light of the Magnificent,
The stamp of His substance, both separate but one,
The image and mold, and the Molder who’s sent.

He carries the world in the laws He decreed.
The physical, moral, and mental He made.
The breaking of law which is sin, perfidy,
By Him He made purification – all paid.

He sits now in honor, with God in the heights,
Thus taking up office as ruler of all,
A priest now forever. On Him fix your sights,
Oh! Trust Him and follow with faith when He calls.

A House of Cards (Luke 21:5-31)

Do not deceive yourself, my friend,
This world will fall apart,
Decaying from within by it’s own sin,
Therefore prepare your heart.

There is no system ever made,
That is too big to fail,
All kings collapse, all empires razed,
Before God all will pale.

The sword of God will come to clean,
In judgment on the world,
All conquered by the mighty King,
All ruled then by His word.

Be sure, your government will fall,
So make your heart prepared,
Your heart set on the Lord of all,
And don’t bow to despair.

This is no reason, then, to fear,
A falling house of cards,
The judgment of the Lord will clear,
The worldliness of heart.

The wrath of God when thus displayed,
Will show His majesty,
When worldly kings are full dismayed,
He’s shown the greater King.
