They did not forget, that
He said He would rise again
Among themselves, they remembered
And they, refused to take chances.
And so they requested for guards
They stationed outside His tomb
A maximum security, should
The scoundrel be stolen,
To present a make believe.
Even though the earth shook
And the curtains of the
Temple rent into two
It did not strike a thing,
In their dark and gruesome hearts!
The Holy of the Holiest
Has been made accessible
Yet, Annas the High priest
Did not perceive....
He had lost his job.
A new era, has come,
A new trend is slowly going viral.
Yet! the Levites,
Could not understand the signs.
There was a physical earthquake;
Such that quaked the temple,
To the depths of its foundation,
and seeming to have spread to
The very ends of the earth.
The secret place, has become exposed
And now, everyone can behold
God's Holy haven, God's secret place.
In fact, darkness covered the land,
Because of He who claimed to be “I AM”
And still, they could not,
God is no longer exclusive,
The Father is now all inclusive
Yahweh is now God and Father
To all and for all, but really unseemly
The irreversible has occurred
Out of jealousy, the custodians
Of the Law, helped ended
The reign of the Law.....
Materialising the very plan of God.
Ushering in the reign of Grace
For all they care, the egocentric guy,
The maniac, brother of Beelzebub
Has been eradicated.....Away with Him!
A very well planned radiance.
It was a gallant accomplishment.
And sooner, yes! Sooner!
They thought, as they grinned
His effect on the people,
Would wear off,
Die out, and soon....
Sooner as they thought, the cities
Will return to normalcy
Jerusalem, Judea, Capernaum, Galilee
And all the rest will be normal again.
No more will the sabbath be defiled
Nor yet again, would there be held
Another mega miracle and healing crusade.
And of a truth, it was quiet.
Very quiet, Dead silent.
The news was everywhere.....
Jesus the Nazarene has died.
The shores of the lake of Galilee
Was bare, the boats were empty,
The multitudes had dispersed.
The rabbi was indeed gone.....
To be continued
He did rise again.... Happy Easter
