The World Belongs to Him

This poem is a rondeau about a worldwide spiritual power struggle.

The world belongs to one who’s grim;
Though Lucifer’s his pseudonym,
His light is dark, his up is down,
And those within his worldwide town
Recite a grisly requiem.

The evil one sought to condemn
A Savior born in Bethlehem;
To him who struck the Servant down
The world belongs.

The second coming will bedim
The dark light of the interim;
He’ll be our light and take a crown;
On earth, He will attain renown.
The Lord has come, and now to him
The world belongs.

“the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving” (2 Corinthians 4:4, NASB)

“Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14, NASB)

“The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays.” (Luke 11:34-36, NASB)
