“The valediction of man in his mortality is soon to be pronounced.
The valediction of man in his mortality is soon to mark the fulfilment of grace:
the fulfilment of the time allotted for his preparation,
the fulfilment of the first dominion of sin,
the fulfilment of My church in proxy,
the fulfilment of My outreach to the earth of man,
the fulfilment of the sequencing of time in the life of man.
The valediction of man in his mortality signs of his end-time presence on the earth,
signs of changes in the reality of man,
signs the end-time tribulation of man,
signs the coming wrath of God,
signs the importance of a sanctuary under the auspices of God,
signs the progress of the new covenant in the heart of man.
The valediction of man in his mortality will see him running for shelter,
will see him in the caves,
will see him under trees,
will see him with his head beneath the pillows,
will see him without a place to flee,
will see him sprawled flat upon his face.
The valediction of man in his mortality will not be protected from his dungeons of desire.
The valediction of man in his mortality will not be safe behind the bars of man,
will not be safe when grace has expired,
will not be secure as he rushes for a bolt-hole,
will not be upheld in the field of liars,
will not survive unscathed under the mantle of false prophecy,
will not escape via the gate of mercy when grace was not accepted at the cross of faith.
The valediction of man in his mortality will see the nations fall in a battle for survival,
will see the horses unleashed to gallop across borders:
to spread all of which they carry which can be borne upon the winds,
to infect the ports of sea and air to so land in distant shores,
to so define the wrath of God at the selfishness of man,
at the greed of man,
at the ambivalence of man –
as he pursues the possibilities of prayer.
The valediction of man in his mortality surveys the sunset with the twilight and the dusk,
seeks the means of escape of a family at large,
seeks the safety of a refuge where prayer remains unknown,
seeks acknowledgement from God that safety is assured.
The valediction of man in his mortality falls upon those not included as the bride,
those unprepared yet white with shock,
those unprepared yet seen as smug,
those unprepared yet have not another day to waste,
those unprepared yet soon to thirst again,
those unprepared yet call out to their god as a deserving cause,
those unprepared yet willingly resort to violence.
The valediction of man in his mortality has no place to turn,
has none to bring him sustenance,
has none to barter his possessions once seen as having value,
has none willing to afford him shelter,
able to calm the seas,
which wash away,
which pull apart,
which strew and scatter –
that thought to be secure.
The valediction of man in his mortality sacrifices his well-being before his mountain of ineptitude:
his mountain built on discards,
his mountain with the evidence of a life lived within
yet in the absence of The Living God.
The valediction of man in his mortality introduces man to his accountability for the actions of his own freewill,
leaves man without an acceptable reason for his behaviour –
portrays the victims prepared,
gathered behind a balcony,
readied to present their testimonies in truth.”
