Chapter 9 Increasing ignorance, the Owner brings light
Chaos of understanding; the Supreme Being starts to teach a group, – would they listen and teach others?
The Master of the sphere and space,
the Spirit-Lord of pity, grace
spoke quietly to one who’d tell
his children, teach; so there would be
a clan prepared (his group-descendents)
to learn true wisdom, grace, commandments,
the justice of the Lord-Above,
his court-to-come, and know his love,
and all that he has done before,
and will, – his promises to save, restore;
so through this one, great good would come,
throughout the sphere, to everyone.
He heard, and believed the instruction revealed:
a covenant solemn was sealed:
forgiven, – the plan to atone dimly saw; –
and many would learn, and be blessed evermore.
So, – He journeyed as instructed,
through many trials trusted,
he knew, appreciated, his Guide was always near,
had friendship with the Ruler of the sphere.
Life unsettled, yet a future
certain, and secure.
but preserved, faith in the sure
knowledge of the Source,
the Fount of life and wisdom;
but Holy anger seen, destroying,
when the evil was too great:
warning, righteousness displaying, –
let there be no more delaying,
turn from love of doing wrong.
Prepared to expect the Great Gift,
the Saving-Solution to lift,
with guilt being taken by Substitute,
a perfect One who could perfection impute, –
transforming their will to want to do well:
the Covenant-Shepherd would soon provide
but who will accept awesome grace supplied?
