A single leaf on a tree in the garden,

Trembling before God

The One with the power to forgive

Who always loves first

Even His enemies

Even those who hate Him

In open display on the old Roman cross,

The world in wickedness

Everywhere soldiers as pawns.

Heaven, a storehouse of mercy

Angels as most righteous servants

More powerful than understood,

Waiting to toss Satan into his fitting end.

Fear of the Lord spoken of, written about,

By David and Solomon

By ancient Job and Enoch and Abraham father of the Jews,

The prophets and apostles,

True leaders of every generation.

The wise listen and learn, shine brightly

The wise read and then pray, shine like the stars

Discern the double-minded, test the spirits,

Know the truth that walks through heaven’s gate peacefully,

In purity of heart see the face of God.




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.
