New Kingdom Coming
Author: Ben Laney


There's a new
new Kingdom coming
It's not that far away
There's a new
new Kingdom coming
Where all God's children will be safe

There will be
no more fear
not for any girl or boy
Every tear
will be wiped away
And replaced with smiles of joy
There's a new
new Kingdom coming
It's not that far away

Swords will turn
into plowshares
They will learn war no more
All this death
and suffering
will be blotted out for sure
There's a new
new Kingdom coming
It's not that far away

------- Author's Notes -------

This one is inspired by prophesies in the ancient scriptures. The books of Daniel and Isaiah in God's Holy Word, the Bible. We need this Kingdom soon, don't we?! ***Ben

Thank you, Barb, for your....

Thank you, Barb, for your comment on New Kingdom Coming, I really apreciate it. And, yes, I am in agreement with you. I am glad to know there are other souls on the planet who hope the new kingdom comes soon and that God's will will be done on earth as it is in heaven, and the meek shall inherit the earth! Love & Whirled Peas, Ben

What else is there?

We realized there is no church, Mosque, synagog, temple, Yoga, Confusus, Plato, etc...that has a hope for the future like the Bible. They all are fixated on death. Here in the East Coast most grave yards are sutuated around churches as if to control who gets in or out. Only Jehovah and his son Jesus has it.
