The Sound of Silence

Hello Darkness (Pastor) my old friend, I’ve come to talk to you again…

The vision that was planted in my brain (of a Kid crying out to her/his parents. Please don’t do this! Cold night of suffering) In restless dreams I see it all. I turn my collar to the cold and damp (How did he/she sleep that night? Alone. Bone cold. Frightened. Hungry. Sobs.) Then.  In the naked Light of Jesus Words I saw. People talk without speaking (Calvarytempleland of Zombies) People hear without listening. (Cursing christian woman) And no one dares. (Wifey on the Warpath) Disturb the Sound of Silence. (To tell all is Gossip) Pastor destroying People. And silence like a Cancer grows. (As pastor plus pastor equals Corruption) And we bow and pray. To the Neon god we made. (“If Pastor is Bad. Then I am an Idiot.” We are. Idiots.) While the words of the prophets are written on the blog walls. (How many blogs does it take to wake a slumbering church?) And are whispered in sounds of silence. (The still Small voice of God) Turn ye. Repent. He comes quickly.

But God says, “And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; is it not for you to know judgment? Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones; who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron. Then shall they cry unto the Lord, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings. Thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him. Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them. Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God…The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? None evil can come upon us” (Micah 3:1-7,11). “The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net…Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities” (Micah 7:2,18-19).

"Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. If I warn the wicked, saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths." Ezekiel 3:17-18 NLT
