The Clashing of the Swords – 11″ x 14″ lithograph
Sharper than any two edged sword,
God’s Word pierces and severs apart.
Alive and rightly dividing
The truth of humanity’s heart.
No notion or purpose is hidden.
No motive too vague or obscure
From the discerning eyes of the Master,
Yet Christ affords us His strength to endure.
Hold fast to your faithful confession.
God’s call summons our absolute best.
Be diligent in your efforts
To enter His Sabbath rest.
For the enemy wields his weapon,
Though a defeated opponent is he,
And a martyr’s life is not in vain.
Jesus garners this victory.
For right at the heart of Jesus
Lies the victor’s final rewards.
Exposed and vanquished the father of lies,
At the Clashing of the Swords!
