A man has risen from the dead, and now all history is altered. Resurrection makes the Christian daring and defiant. We taunt the forces of evil, as Scripture often does. I've brushed off an old poem I wrote for those facing the hellish. Beware of the mighty and risen King.
Come the muscle of all dominions.
Come the might of every kingdom.
Come the furnace and its fire.
Come the hellish demon choir.
Come with your finality.
Mount your horse; challenge me.
This, the place for God’s glory.
His reign in wicked territory.
Swing the sword; fire the arrow.
Gather an army like a Pharaoh.
Did you win? You bound my wrist.
But now you’ll see His mighty fist.
Resist Him with your travesty.
It only grows His majesty.
It multiplies His victory.
Few had known of His great might,
Until you challenged Him to fight.
You brushed His heel and thought him dead,
Until He rose and crushed your head.
