Dominion of darkness

Kingdom of the selfish

They dance well together in a deadly dance

Willing partners in a covenant of deceit

Lawlessness in gloating pride

Inherent right to feed the swollen apetites,

To gorge on every lie spoken;

Celebratiion as an orgy freely given

The soul mingles within the serpent’s character,

The serpent moves with ease in the open unprotected mind and heart

Fair game for its savage hunt,

Fear and pride and lust easy bait,

Spirits of every perverse variety on parade with abandonment

Lewdness as a special delight

Brutality as but a chorus in a drunkard’s song.

Then, by an invisible hand a line is drawn

Sin in rebellious ones finally overflows its cup,

A door is thrown open

Light floods in as darkness shrieks and flees;

One rescued here, another there

A family, a fellowship, a distant tribe

With all power and final authority

In open sovereign display,

Countless others across the globe plucked from the fire,

Even in Israel. 


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.
