Choosing time

 

Choose whom you will serve.

 

Choosing time,

He said it; it started in the womb.

He said it. We all must choose; but whom?

.

Worlds before you, kings and kingdoms full of grace,

Realms of power, realms of disgrace,

Realms of glory, realms of pain, recognize them by their name.

.

Caesar is upon us.

It is for you to choose. Realms of glory, realms of grace, sovereign peace upon your face.

Dreams of decadence, dawn of despair, mighty powers are in the air.

Realms and sovereigns, authorities and cares, mighty powers are everywhere.

.

The die is cast.

The Rubicon is crossed. The welfare of the state has become all disgraced.

Slaves or free men, servants or kings,

Kings are servants of their dreams.

Nothing comes from nowhere; discern the means.

.

Paupers, pontiffs, potentates all return to dust.

The heart abides, the soul resides it is the coffin nails that rust,

Yet on which side, on what do you really; on whom do you trust?

 

Hunger, lust, ambition,

Vanity, power, pride,

Comfort or contentment,

You cannot hide,

what’s worshipped inside?

You cannot hide.

.

Dawn of decadence, journey of desire,

Your purpose the answer, the question a release.

Is it the will to power or to enter into peace?

 

Worlds before you; Kingdoms full of grace,

Realms of power, realms of disgrace.

Realms of glory, realms of pain, recognize them by their name.

 

Are you free or for hire? If a servant of whom? It all began in the womb.

Are you headed for the grave; coalescence with the dark,

or being eclipsed by His light, glorying in His might?

.

This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live Deuteronomy 30:18-20
