The Great Playbook Of Satan


Backstory

Mainly characterized by its alliteration and use of words that twist the tongue, this is one of many poems which highlight a national rebellion that is slowly settling in the corners of America. Eventually, all of these poems will be compiled into a artistic collection that will be showcased to this blog. This will be my first big project for my summer vacation. In short, this poem creatively warns readers of what I would call The Great Playbook of Satan. Specifically, the pages written in this “book” pinpoint to the 21st century America as we know it, which is blinded by its arrogance and passivity.

Poem

In the many pages of the Great ⠠⠏⠇⠁⠽⠃⠕⠕⠅

Were clever plots drafted in pen and paper:

A plot to push the people of ⠏⠪⠻

To pray to their Prince to provide ⠏⠂⠉⠑

While inflicting pain on the poorest providence:

Preying on the powerless with their prickly palms

And punishing the powerful with pornography and ⠏⠻⠧⠻⠨⠝⠲

Pleasure, prosperity, power, and ⠏⠗⠑⠌⠊⠛⠑⠲

But, little did they know that the Predator polluted them with pompous ⠐⠏⠊⠑⠎

Woe to them! In their ⠏⠗⠑⠞⠢⠎⠑⠂

They shall perish for lack of knowledge

On the words polished in its many pages:

The pressure of pondering on such painful prospects.

Woe to the men who shout “Jesus is the Risen King!”

Woe to the priest who says to his flock, ”Victory is mine!”

How can you have knowledge of victory and Heavenly treasure

While you are passive in mourning for those who contributed

To writing the Great Playbook of Satan.

Woe to thee, o blind pauper!

My heart lamenteth for my nation.

Woe to thee, ye unprepared soldier!

You speak well, and lack much!

Let not another day pass without meditating on these words:

I write not to you, but to the author of the Book of Life:

Which is open and unfinished, its pages swift with beauty.

Woe to those whose name is not written!

Ye therefore have contributed to the Great Playbook of Satan!

When Judgement Day comes, your portion shall be measured:

From the words carved on its pages to the acts performed in secret.

What will you do when all the ink is burned to ashes?

What will you do when your part of his story is cut off by the flames of Hell?

The Great Playbook of Satan shall cease,

And the author shall receive his consequence for all things written and exercised through the blueprint.

Why?


It is a question which we hear, especially parents, when our child or children are young. They ask it…sometimes to the point of getting on our nerves with the number and frequency of the question!

Sometimes we can answer it with a realistic answer and sometimes it is “Because I said so!”! But, this week we have no answer for the shooting in Las Vegas. There is no note or reason or anything that even approaches rationality. Because there is nothing rational about this! Was the shooter insane? I don’t know and few other people have a real clue either. Had he been “radicalized” in some way? Who knows?

Why is a question which we as a nation will be asking about this for a long time. Will we ever find the answer to that question? I honestly don’t know. In my view, my opinion is that only the shooter knows and God and likely we will never find out the actual reason. Because, the behavior to do such a thing defies logic and any human decency.

On the news tonight, Steve Hartman said that there are no real words to describe or comfort this type of event and he is right. We can’t think of anything to say because there isn’t anything that makes any sense when you are talking about an act so dehumanizing and tragic.

Life is precious. Not just one person’s life or a particular skin color or religion, but to God ALL human life is precious because He made us in His image! At one time the rule of law was that “when man kills another man, then by man his life will be taken“; which we have toned down with political correctness so that even when convicted a killer can live out his natural life without ever being killed for his crime! Some even claim that it is inhuman to punish a man in that fashion. Really? If they killed your wife or son or daughter, would you feel that way?

God is already punishing the killer from Las Vegas since he took his own life as well, so at least he is getting his punishment. His soul and his eternal body will endure that forever and there is no appeal or stay that will come to get him out of hell.

Hell was not created to punish mankind, but when we act like demons and follow the leading of their suggestions in our minds then God has no recourse but to place us in the same place of punishment that they have waiting for them. Please give your heart and life to Jesus and follow Him while there is still time to do so. We don’t know when He is coming back, but it won’t likely be much longer. Will we all live to see it? I don’t know, but I do know that when He comes there will be no doubt about Who it is and what is happening…at least to those who have heard about it or read the book of Revelation.
