PostSubject: Cup of Wrath   Mon Mar 26, 2012 3:02 pm

Could you lay down your life in such an egregious fashion
Take the spit, and the fists and the furious lashes
The taunts, and the heckles and the degradation
Hang like a joke before an entire nation
Take the thorns, bare the cross, or the spikes in your limbs
HE did it all for us, without a thought for HIM
Us selfish sinners who wouldn't even believe
And the leaders of your people did their best to deceive
Even Pilate proclaimed this man not guilty
But we screamed for crucifixion with hearts so filthy
Would you kneel in the garden, but scared for your life
To please the Father, pay any price
Could you heal a man who did you harm
And a hand to the sword, could you stay that arm
As you were paraded with mockery and shame
Could you accept God's will and why you came
Could you refrain from the desire to hate
Could you forgive them because you knew their fate
With the essence of life dripping off your toes
While dice throws chose who would get your robes
To the Father, " It is finished", your final gasp
Could you be faithful and drink the cup of wrath?

Powerful, humbling piece. It startles the reader with the very first verse and continues to press all the way through. I love the boldness. Nice work worshipfreely.

Just came to me one night recently as I was dwelling on all that my family is dealing with right now. Kinda puts stuff back into perspective.

if someone had never heard this story, this would catch them up pretty quick!
The "Passion" really comes through in this!

This was a powerful poem.. a great reminder for a most appropriate time. I often say that we in America are really spoiled...we get to worship freely - when there are so many that can't - their every day lives are spent in fear of finding and retribution. I do wonder (and pray) that I would be strong enough in him to stand for him should the time ever come. I know I would not - without his help and grace. Well done my friend... I really like this!

Yes powerful is the word for this work. Christ is Faith, He died so we could follow faith rather than laws.

Thank you sisters. Voice of Martyrs opened my eyes and showed me what the world is like for so many who suffer for their faith, Jesus was the first, but HE warned HE wouldn't be the last. All that I face is absolutely nothing ion comparison and just wanted to remind myself of the price HE paid for us. All glory to the Father!

At church I say word when most say amen. It's not cause of the street slang though, it's cause I feel the WORD of God speaking. Some like it, some don't. I live for the LORD and HIS likes. HE takes me as I am, thankfully. blah

That's cause you are one of the ones who gets it! That's why I am drawn to you and this site, so many clueless "christians" misrepresenting the Christ, we have to do our best to share the true WORD.

It took a long hard road before I got it, but wouldn't trade it for anything.

Be my guest, but we should switch it out with the other one that's up there. We don't want them to start piling up at the top. We need something new up there anyway.

It's not the before or after, but what it took to complete the work. I love it. completely powerful from top to bottom. Reminds me of a message I heard," Between the Cross and the Tomb" Really caught my attention. Massive instruction.

This is a gut-wrenching personal trip to that hill of shame. Very well done, and in the economy and imagery of the best of poetry.

And then you posit, "But WE screamed..." and you take the story out of the historical and into the personal. "While we were yet sinners Christ died for us".

This is courage. This is living out the Sermon on the Mount in its highest order. And this is our Elder Brother, and the One upon whom we have placed our fate and trust.
