A distant sound softly touches the ears

Winter air crisp and still

With gladness a calm, and a quiet that soothes the icy landscape

A beautiful white, an easy cold;

Then another sound- church bells, no a chime

Or a far off trumpet blast that carries near

As a clear call that begins to echo within

Something only the heart hears

And the mind begins to understand;

High pitched tones faint at first

And the new white of a massive cloud seen father away,

It moves a little closer, then closer and closer still

The sounds grow slowly into a song

The great cloud into many smaller clouds

Each bright cloud a throng of people clothed in white

Their song one of worship

Love song to a Lord, their Lord

Their Savior, joy of all expectations

Hope revealed in each heart with longing

Immanuel, desire that burned now fully realized;

All voices blend in

My voice blends in as well

Countless white robes as pure flames

Each face radiant

One after another, each so very radiant,

Then, as one of the many, I see myself!



   A proverb of Solomon says-“Hope drawn out makes the heart sick, but a longing come true is a tree of life”.  True hope is vital to the health of our spirits.  The return of Messiah for his flock is foundational.  He spoke many words about it, others were voices for more of the Spirit truth.  His command is to be prayerful and watchful.  To be on guard and to be alert.  Some claim to know more than is revealed.  They take away words from or add words to.  But the Spirit of Messiah is truth and indwells true believers.  We discern the liars, deceivers and greedy.  Those who promote a “different gospel’.  So be it..        







About Gary Bertnick

I was a Minnesota teenager in the late 1960's. I was drafted into the military after an intense time at an engineering school. As a graduate chemical engineer and former athlete, I became a Marine Corps private. The Lord spoke to me through a friend while visiting Rapid City,S.D. My true discipleship began in Southern California and was boosted through association with Morris Cerullo Ministry and others. I fed upon the Scriptures and have learned to be led by the Holy Spirit. I know what the fear of the Lord is. What I write is done to honor the Lord and to touch the lives of those who know Him as well as those who should.
