You Will Look for Me (John 8:21)

 Again he said to them, 
“I am going away, and you will search for me, but you will die in your sin. 
Where I am going, you cannot come."

John 8:21

You will look,
but you will not find.
Where the light is going
you will not follow.
You will choose to remain
in the shadows
without faith.

You belong to the bowels
of the earth.
You are the weeds
populating the field,
choking the wheat.
By your own strength
you cannot lift yourselves
into the region above.

This world claims you,
forms within you
hearts of stone,
and you have governed it like fools.
You belong to the soil,
not the spirit.

If you had faith
you would see clearly.
You would understand
the fulfillment of prophecy.
But you say that knowledge
is yours
to interpret
and teach.
You say that your words,
your thoughts,
are more important
than God's
