I feel like I've been posting a lot, but if nobody minds:

 

 

In the courtrooms of the earth

The judge is sweated high,

With the court spread out before him:

Witnesses of foul deeds

Whose voice the ruler heeds;

And the jury set before him.

 

In the place of least repute

The man accused stands by:

His accuser stands before him,

Whose words are true: they are just,

And heed them justice must:

Plain is the law spread before him.

 

The lawyer of the guilty

Stands up and starts to say:

“He is false who has accused him.

“No such doing has he done,

“You seek a different one”—

Though his crimes bear out before him.

 

A courtroom’ set in heaven

And the Judge exalted high:

My accuser stands before Him.

My sins attest foul deeds

In justice He must heed:

All my crimes are spread before him.

 

The Accuser speaks the truth:

In guiltiness stand I.

This he pleads before Him.

When the Just One starts to rise

I sink beneath His eyes

For my sin spreads out before Him.

 

He opens His holy mouth,

I hear Him start to say,

“I am the Lord, I rebuke him.

“Though these deeds by you are done,

“You are My chosen one”—

Though my guilt is plain before Him.

 

I am pardoned, I am clean!

I hear the echoes say,

“It is finished!” laid all on Him.

I am in His garments dressed,

He’s taken all the rest,

And he stands me, pure, before Him!

Indeed, quite nice. From the words present, I had already gotten that this was you 'live' as you heard a sermon on 'courtroom' or such. I was much pleased when I read it. The 'I in you' (personal person writing as I have so named it long ago) comes through so cleanly; shows your development as a writer. Well done, and 'Good on You!'

Good for you for guessing it right!

Oh, wow. thank you. Your praise really means a lot. Thanks again!

No. What is it? This sprung from a very excellent sermon I heard yesterday on Zech. 3:1-6

Ah, okay. I'm not sure how to exactly word it, but I'll try my best to explain it.

 

It's a system that exists in Heaven that a Christian has access to so that he can remove any generational curses or deal with the roots of a certain issue, such as a disease or something along those lines. Mr. Robert Henderson's teachings on this have apparently brought damage to what the Courts of Heaven really are.

 

Something maybe you could look into if you'd like? I'm still (sort of) doing research on it.

Ah. Do you believe in it? It doesn't sound like something I quite agree with...

I believe that there is a Courts system, but I'm not sure exactly what it's about or if I agree with Mr. Henderson's teachings on it.

I looked him up last night, and I just have to say I don't agree with him at all. Certainly God is Judge!  Whether there's a court room in heaven I don't know, nor does it change anything for me if there is. However, one of the most comforting truths in scripture is the teaching that God is Judge and will judge the world!

Thank you! That means a lot. I'm not quite sure what the 'I in you'  is? Thank you, again, this really encouraged me!

Sorry, I thought my poem that reads that line '...I in me' was on this forum. But it is on Faithwriters.com. So, if it will fit here, here it can be seen in its full.

 

The Spinner’s Joy

The spider spins its web;
Its intricate thinned circulates
Of laceful textures and hues
Exalting the I in me
By the beauty therein.
For in the soundings of spring,
Among whispers and shadows
Of gold-green leaves, it waits;
Sometimes in a lonely afterwards
It sun-catches only the dew or the rain,
But if one willow-sweet wind 
On little fog’s feet comes silfing through,
It just may bring a carefree may fly.

But alas, I am not
Like the spider;
That though you may entrap yourself
In the beauty I create,
You may still fly a thousand
Screams of joy elsewhere;
For I am not like the spider:
I spare,
Though I spin my web.

—Dumas fils

This is really pretty! I liked the lull and beauty you described in the summer's day, and the willow-wind. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you. My wife liked it so much when I wrote it years ago, that she did the whole thing in calligraphy. I was about 9 when I saw the spider that spring day, but I was 20 when I wrote the poem.
