#CrossEqualsLove |Poetry by Wordsmith Lew @SwagNation_Ke

This pain
So intense I think am going insane
Only one vain
dripping with drops of blood.
Already am its cold,am wet.
The cover is tattered
The book is unreadable
The pages are hanging off
The pages are falling off
The pieces of paper are blurry
Eye can’t see clearly
I can’t see beyond my deeds and doubts
Hi….I…eye don’t see a place I can call myself because he took a place for me at the cross.
Mark 15:16-15
Niite Barabbas
iite Bible verse
Si formation
Coach piga sub
Weka messssiah
Sinner natoa msumari wangu Wa mwisho
Sina…..thambi anadungwa msumari wake Wa mwisho.
Sin…….Naah
Confirm na waromi 5:8
God alitupenda tukiwa bado sinners na Ndo maana Christ alitukufia.

Mwanzo mwanzo kwanza
Wacha nianze mwanzo 3:18
Sins
Curse
Thorns
Head
Crown
Soldiers are mocking Him with crown of thorns
Hawakujua
Hawakujua there was more to that
You see…..
No you don’t see
So now allow me…
Thorns were as a result of curse by God to mankind.
Symbolically, Jesus took away the sins of the world on the cross.
3 hours
Ours
We don’t know according to Deuteronomy 28:29
Darkness mchana ilikuwa sign ya curse
Na Christ Ali bear darkness na thorns za sins
He redeemed us
He became a curse
He became a curse for us
Soma Galatians 3:13 utajua cursed is the man who hanged on the tree.

Prophecy ya Isaiah
Amenifunikia…
Na nguo
Am no longer cold
So soma label
Capital S
Kwa chest
Na si Superman
SALVATION.
I capital letters
Let us
Rejoice in the Lord kwa sababu prophecy ya Isaiah 61:10 imekuwa fulfilled na Mark 15:24.
Hujaskia…division imefanyika
iite last will
And for sure nmepata kipande cha nguo yake
Saa hii
Naked eyes zinakuwa clothed na naked truth
Naked truth from a naked supreme being on the cross.
Irony, Christ alichukuwa shame ya uchi Wa sins zetu na robe yake ya righteousness on the cross kwa kuwachwa uchi.

On the cross,
Mbingu zilipasuka utakatifu ukashuka mfano wa njiwa
Holy of the holies curtain imepasuka kutoka juu hadi chini juu ya the only holy one.
Saa hii
Na relate
Jesus Ku associate
Crucifixion na baptism na later Ku interpret
Kwa cross veil itapasuka ndo tu gain access to heavenly sanctuary.

Juu ya Cross,
Am reconciled to God
Am redeemed and forgiven
Am a child of God
Am a saint
Am a citizen of heaven
Eternal life pap!
Spirit ya God Ata siongeli na naogelea
Am alive na Christ
Am Christ’s friend
Kazi za Mungu
Kanisa ni Mimi
imba
wrath ya God juu ya sins hakuna juu tulikuwa linked na son wake kwa cross
Slavery ya sin ilikuwa paid na blood ya Christ on the Cross
Guilt iliisha juu grace ya God ilikuwa sufficient on the cross
Me na God ni mabeshte
Man am blessed spiritually
Because of love on the cross
Because of cross with love
Because cross equals love.

BEGINNING OF SALVATION IS THE END OF SIN

As water flows Ina desert, land gives rise to green life.
So does Yahweh send forth his spirit and we are created, said the psalmist
For God created man to be immortal and in his own likeness, giving him brilliance of mind to choose good or its opposite.
He, being God, filled man with discipline of understanding but the creation forgot the creator.
But Jehovah being rich in love and slow to anger was full of compassion for his creation, He didn’t hold back John 3:16 For He loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
Life, eternal life was promised when Christ was born in a manger and assured when he rose from the dead.
In his 33years of life in a human form,one thing he taught, nothing makes a man unclean from the outside but what comes from the heart Mark 7:18
As he died on the cross, the gap between God and man was bridged, after the walls built by the evil one, prophets tried to ladder up with messages and prophecies.
Now most of us don’t know how the cross came to be, the crossing of two wills, God’s and ours, but surely one will had to dominate, God’s did
Christ came from the right hand side of God to salvage us by dying on the cross,
He carried our wicked thoughts and cleansed them by the thorns on his head
By the water that flowed from his Side, we were reminded of baptism
Our walks were limited to only the walks of Christ by joining his legs.
And after he defeated death, he crossed over back to the right where if we believe in the greatest sacrifice known to us
We surely be with him in eternal life.

Thou Art

Before I met you, I was a neat mess
I was a reptile without scales
I was a cold blooded animal spitting venom in terms of profanity insulting people as if my insults were compliments and I honored it, I honored my words,
I took shots of rage from an absent father and drank to my fill, staggered my bitter soul down the runway that was painted in hatred without the fear of falling.
My staggering soul couldn’t help me that much so I got lost while trying to find direction from a broken compass,
While trying to compose colors out of faded walls,
Walls that freely offered silence form they were only structures that pretended to care about my loneliness,

I was equally quiet, I couldn’t express my views vividly instead,
I would down them with booze with the hope of waking up to a sober mind,
I used to fly across oceans of sadness and controversy,
Questioning your love since those who claimed to be your people were so religious,
I heard that their version of loving was segregation
They segregated our struggles while hiding behind the words of Saint Luke,
So I often found myself as the Malcom x in parliaments full of rabbis and scribes,
Yelling don’t shoot on the non-believers who were guilty of their innocence which was branded ignorance for they knew not about your existence,
For you were not a spirit whose presence could only be felt by the righteous ones nor an icon whom preachers and C.R.E teachers could emulate,
Your presence was omnipresent,
But who could listen to the epitome of disaster
Who could listen to an antagonist character who had several manuscripts of what his dooms day looked like, who could listen to a white washed tomb with solid bones,
Who could listen to stories of fortune narrated by tragedy who could listen?
And then I met you, I remember,
Blood rushed to my brain like a broken elevator, adrenalin held my voice captive
Anxiety had its hand on my heart and like a drum it beat in several tempos,
I was trapped at the tricks of time trying to figure out what was happening,
I couldn’t get a good look on you,
Your face was bloody, your skin was peeling off, the earth was shaking, curtains split and for three hours straight darkness had conquered the world.

You were surrounded but you felt alone
You sought for a father who had left you alone ,
The fragrance of the cologne you received on your birthday was now a sweaty stench of one whose back had carried fifty plus kilograms of lust of deceit of murder and false accusations on his back so I stood by watched a man of steel take three nails to his palms and his feet,
For when they insulted you, you didn’t insult back when they slapped you, you turned the other cheek and when they mocked you, and your volume remained mute

You took a gulp of the bitter cup without the fear of choking,
You’re the King who made family out of subjects and yet we spat on the plates we fed on,
Your soldiers had loaded rifles that engaged in friendly fire instead of fighting off enemies,
Some well most of them didn’t fight for you and I am sure they will regret it till their dying days,
For you were a worthy leader one who was resuscitated to eternity one who backed is prophecy with actions one who existed uniquely in a faction of twelve, himself he who turned Jeremiahs lamentation into Isaiah’s praise for when you came all we said was unto us a savior is born.

So I always wave my monkey hands while praising you shouting in joy like a sane man gone bananas because this lunatic has a new straight jacket one that is full of love full of peace and satisfaction so excuse me Lord for my madness your love drives me crazy.
Your bloody inscriptions made a masterpiece of a sinful man so poetry is not just genre I use to speak to you it is also a way of showing the world how great thou art is

#CrossEqualsLove |Poetry by Ansay @SwagNation_Ke

My Way To The Cross

In the Garden of Gethsemane
Pray lest you fall into temptation
Sikufall into temptation
Temptation ndio iliniangukia
Fruit kati kati ya eden kwa macho ya eve
The same way 30 sheckels za silver kwa macho ya Judas
Kusatisfy my own greed, nikawelcome devil to my house
Let’s us have a meal nikikiss Yesu on the cheek
Mbona unanisaliti na busu?
Kwa train of thought nikareminisce nikideep mkate kwa wine
At the same time as him
Nikifulfill prophecy alisema some few days before I wish ningekuwa more keen kuskiza
So skiza ama Peter atachukua sikio lako akionyesha boldness to his fellow disciples
Akipatia Yesu chance ya kufanya the last miracle before wamshike shati na kumdrag all along nikimfuatilia kwa umbali
Few hours later, darkness ilicreep in
Jua ikapoteza essence
Nilimfuata nimeingiza njeve huku nikiskiza whispers za upepo
Msee alitembea juu ya maji na akafanya vipofu kuona, alikuwa sandwiched between two Jewish but walikaa Roman Soilders
Mikono cuffed at the back na wengine wakimtemea mate
All these events zinaunfold before my eyes
To some point, nafeel nika naota
Ni funny sitaki kuwa associated na msee aliheal watu macho
Akam aheal zangu basi ju nadhani zikona defects
Hii sio reality hii ni movie na ni kama imefanyiwa after effects
Halafu nasnap back to reality halafu nafwatwa na maswali
Wakwanza akaniuliza ka nilimjua mi nikamshow sikumtambua
Wapili alikuwa mrembo na alisema alituona pamoja
Nikamshow zii in fact hii ni first time yangu kumwona
The next kubring out maswali aliileta after one hour akasema aliona nayeye Galilee
Nikamshow mistaken Identity
Before nimalize my statement jogoo already alikuwa ashawika
Nikatilt my head to the right, nikapatana eye to eye na Jesus
Heart yangu ikasplit apart
Niliwish dunia ifunguke inimeze
My brother Judas soul yake ilikuwa inapanga virago out of his body na destination haikuwa heaven
I screamt in my own silence
All I heard in my head was its all your fault
You lost because you never fought
You missed the shot that mattered and now I am pointing the riffle to my own head
Guilty has already eaten my body
I am now left with this soul that is questioning me
How different am I from these guys on my left and right screaming free Barnabas and crucify Jesus
The enemy of your enemy is your friend
And I saw two enemies become friends
Pilate and Herod shaked hands
Before Pilate washed off his hands
And I felt like Jesus’ blood was spilling in my own hands
My soul was bleeding from inside as they lashed Him on the back
Every time He fell it felt like emptiness
Just because of my own greed I was now suffering in silence
How many of you sin then feel guilty to ask God for forgiveness
Because you’ve done it over and over
Betrayed him
Your actions always scream free barrabas and take Jesus
Like how on Sunday’s you lick Jesus feet with praise but during weekdays spit on his face
Like you never knew him
How does that make you a different from the guy who drilled a nail through Jesus hand
The one who pierced his back till water and blood came out
How different
But every time I look at the crucifix. I hear Him, Jesus, Elohim, speak not with words but spirit and says I died for you.
Don’t let them lie to you that I never came for the self righteous peeps
I came for them
The self righteous and those being judged by the self righteous guys
So just look to the right and left
That is my betrayer but my love for him is too great So I took whips on my back thorns on my head I took nails on my palms
Just because I love you: Mr and Ms Betrayer😍
