The Infidel

American Heritage Dictionary

Definition: Infidel

3. One who doubts or rejects a particular doctrine, system, or principle

If in God's own Son, you have put your trust,

To a world undone, you are but ashes and dust.

It matters not your age or your stage,

Being born anew is the only real gauge.

Adam's sin draped the world in night,

Under a dark reign, away from light.

In chaos profound, where hope's made lame,

In flesh God came, to deliver us from flame.

Eternal life to those who would believe,

Freed from hell and death relieved.

A fate our enemy cannot escape,

For angels are no provisions made.

The god of this world, the cherubim Satan,

From heaven cast down, by hubris forsaken.

In evil cloaked, through eons condemned,

His legions obey, to ravage, to rend.

Though veiled the saved are from human sight,

The adversary watches, filled with spite.

No matter your skin, your creed, or class,

In his gaze, all are marked, not one passed.

To quiet your voice, and dull your spark,

Make you scared to speak, or scared of the dark.

He aims to distract, make you forget,

Whether swimming in cash or drowning in debt.

If rolling in wealth, he wants you obsessed,

If down on your luck, he wants you depressed.

If in the middle, he's got you by habit,

A greyhound on track, ever chasing the rabbit.

He hates the family who prays together,

Whether in good times, or stormy weather.

He props up the church that sits on the fence,

Where the message is lost, and all is pretense.

He elevates leaders, then causes their fall,

Scattering the flock, making them small.

He wants us divided, easy to trick,

Preferring us weak, not strong, nor quick.

Despite his schemes, his lies, his blight,

The Truth stands firm, a shining light.

Though he marshals his forces, wide and vast,

He's still outnumbered, his fate is cast.

His doom is sealed, a tale old as time,

Foreseen before stars first did shine.

A stone not shaped by mortal's tools,

Will topple Babylon and end its cruel rule.

Marked by grace, a strange sight to see,

In a world gone wild, we're meant to be.

An infidel to the Babylonian way,

An heir of salvation, come what may.

One day soon, at the last trumpet's blast,

Our true self unsealed as if by cast.

From mortal birth to rebirth so vast,

No longer a shadow, our departure contrasts.

One bright day, our new selves adorned,

No longer our sight, by darkness is torn.

With eyes unveiled, as we are forewarned,

Our souls, now vibrant, rebirthed and reborn.

We shall be known as we are known,

In this new light, our true essence shown,

So wait the day, when all shall be made clear,

And in that light, our paths are drawn near.

Aligning with Christ, your allegiance declared,

Against the foe, bravely you've stared.

In steadfast faith, you shall always stand,

Guided and guarded by His mighty hand.

The holy find a higher call,

Beyond the reach where tempters tread.

For them, divine whispers do not fall

On deafened ears; lifted higher instead.

So let each soul to His nature cling,

Let each soul to His praise give voice.

For time reveals the truth of every thing,

To God or to devil, they've made their choice.

The unjust embrace their crooked ways,

And walk darkened paths where shadows dwell.

Let filth cling to those who court its ways,

In chosen path, through the wide gate to hell.

But those who seek righteousness a light to hold,

And in their hearts, the purest gold refine,

Shall walk the streets with steps as brave and bold,

Where virtue's Sun does endlessly shine.

But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. 2 Corinthians 4:3-5
