Inferno


(in answer to N.P. van Wyk Louw)

I have heard an urgent message
that with the coming of the great creator God
planets will loose their light,
even in the outer universe that lays far off
and on the power of the omnipotent command
all of the stars will loose their light,
that love will exist to eternity
when God comes to lead his people,
that a sea of flame will cover this planet
and will come from the omnipotent Lord,
that all under the power of darkness
will admit that He is righteous and honourable,
that the universe will know of the judgement of the almighty God
and that a great crowd of people will gather with Him.
