What does it mean to rise up?
To awake, to stand and having done all to stand,
Stand, Whereby I rise up!
Why do I rise?
Sleep can’t hold captive, that which can wake to a new day,
Yet, death can temporarily silence,
But hope beyond death speaks
Rise up is what John the Baptist meant by repent,
A greater purpose is at stake,
Rise up is what Jesus was saying, by repent,
In order to experience what resurrection looks like,
Arise in spirit, arise in the soul, the body rises daily towards this goal,
A songwriter penned,
I rise up, I rise like the day, I rise unafraid, and I am liking rising up,
The way I have come to appreciate rising from spirit and soul slumber,
Is by repenting, so then I like the way I rise up,
The best part of rising is the paradigm of repentance,
Which only leads to the hope and promise of perfection,
Beyond sleep, slumber, and death,
Where all the repentant will meet for the final journey, after the fall,
This place cannot be found anywhere else, it is where Jesus addressed as,
Having been given “the space to repent” (Revelation 2:21)
Rise up to me means to repent, and to be corrected,
It is a personal and private place. not everyone will speak of it,
Because it is a place of ache, where hurt resides,
It is where life’s traumas hide the traces of the pain all sin leaves behind,
Whereas touching the grief it can only be done by who is acquainted with sorrow,
No one really knows how to touch grief but by or with words and deeds,
Repentance knows the hiding places within, cleans out all wounds,
And has the ointment needed to be the free indeed needed, To rise up!
Rising up with the ability to breathe requires breath,
Breath has a very limited purpose if I cannot utter, 'I repent"
God breathed, and man became a living soul,
Only to fall, still with breath that required and still does require a remedy,
Only repentance provides what it means to truly rise up from the fall!
I repent Creator, and in doing so I am desirous of rising up,
Thank you for the Spirit of Prophecy, all of the Prophets and Prophetesses.
