What Did YHWH Say

Bound to the earth by flesh and bone
Out of the garden, out of our home…
Tied to the earth by the sweat of the brow
Ruled by the dirt by the ox and the plow
Cursed and fallen
We work the ground
Remembering a time of Paradise
Beast, man and woman paid a terrible price
Thorns and thistles, rock and clay
Sunup to sundown we make our way
The slithering beast, subtle in his way
His part was easy; tempting the woman to disobey
No one to blame but ourselves we pay~
Chained and shackled; no other way
But wait~
What did YHWH say?
One of woman’s descendants will crush the enemy’s head~
God had a plan, God made a way~
Earthbound we work, we toil and we slave
Waiting for many millennia to pass away…
Walking in shadow
Until that day!
The serpent still whispers, ‘Surely God did not say.’
It’s your choice, who will you obey?

The Soul Takes Flight Poetry by: MS O’Neill
Genesis 3:15 New Century Version (NCV) I will make you and the woman enemies to each other. Your descendants and her descendants will be enemies. One of her descendants will crush your head, and you will bite his heel.”
I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
