THE GREAT MIRACLE


© - Tom Hyland - 4/17/12

WHAT IF ... THE FOLLOWING HAPPENED TOMORROW?

A Huge Cloud Encircles the Entire Earth.
An Eerie, but Heavenly Aura Surrounds It.
Then, A Booming Voice, Not Unlike James Earl Jones’
Is Heard - Everywhere - Instantly ...

“I AM THE LORD _ THY GOD!”

Not Unlike The Pentecostal
‘Gift of Tongues’ -
Each Human, in Each Country,
Hears and Understands Clearly.

Then, a Huge Hologram Appears -
Visible Both in Light and Dark Areas -
A Prominent White-Robed Figure - Not Unlike
That Depicted by Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.

“GOOD MORNING/EVENING!
PLEASE HAVE A SEAT ...
AND TURN OFF ALL CELL PHONES!”

“THIS IS MY SON, OF WHOM I AM PLEASED!”

Then, Jesus Appears ...
Also in White - With Golden Cumberbund -
Well-Groomed Beard Also -
And Announces Happily:

“CONTRARY TO PUBLIC OPINION ...
TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!”
“THE GOSPEL WRITERS AND HISTORIANS
WERE OFF - JUST A TAD!”

“IN HONOR OF MY BIRTHDAY -
DAD AND I ARE MAKING A FEW CHANGES!”
“PLEASE VIEW THE DISPLAYED LIST:”

1. All Sick People and Animals are Instantly Cured!
2. All Human Maladies are Instantly Eliminated!
3. Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Trouble, AIDS, Alzheimers’ ... Gone!
4. Ozone Layer Re-Sealed - Global Warming Ended!
5. No More: Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Tornadoes!

6. War and Pestilence Are No More!
7. All Tobacco, Alcohol, and ‘Twinkies’ - ZAPPED!
8. All Children and Pet Abusers - Burning in Hell!
9. All Veterans Approved Instantly for All Benefits!
10. All Politicians Will Forever Tell The Truth!

“THERE - YOU HAVE IT!
PARADISE RE-VISITED!
FIRST - THE TEN COMMANDMENTS!
NOW - THE TEN AMENDMENTS!”

Drums Roll ... Trumpets Blare ...
And ... POOF!
Hologram Vanishes!

Celebration and Revelry Run Rampant Globally!
Wine, Women, Dancing, Song - Prevail Everywhere ...
For Forty Days and Forty Nights ...
Peace and Love Flows ... Abounds Throughout the Earth.

After the ‘Hang-Over’ Subsides ...
Gradually, Things Get Back to ‘Normal’
Feral Man Returns to Obsessions and Depressions -
The ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ Return - Triumphantly!

IRAN ‘NUKES’ ISRAEL!
NORTH KOREA ‘NUKES’ SOUTH KOREA!
CHINA ‘NUKES’ TOKYO, MOSCOW, LONDON, AND D.C.
U.S. ‘NUKES’ BAGHDAD, DAMASCUS, KABUL, ISLAMABAD ...

A HUGE ‘MUSHROOM’ ENVELOPS THE EARTH!

THERE’S ANOTHER ‘POOF’!

A BOOMING VOICE BELLOWS:


“SEE SON, I TOLD YOU SO!”

“YOU CAN LEAD A HORSE TO WATER ...
BUT - YOU CAN’T MAKE HIM DRINK!”

Paraphrase Intended ...

“You Can Lead a Man to Common Sense ...
But - You Can’t Make Him Think!”


DRUMS ROLL ... TRUMPETS BLARE ...

POOF! THE END! FINITO!

POOF! THE END! FINITO!

It very sadly seems that we're now heading that way very rapidly today: You Can Lead a Man to Common Sense, But - You Can't Make Him Think.

It seems like fewer and fewer people, including our so called 'leaders' today, are doing very much thinking other than how to help themselves.

Maybe those wise old Mayans were on to something after all - the end of their calendar arrives very soon. POOF! THE END! FINITO!

Yes, I want that. The Great Miracle, up until the end of #10; all the remainder of the poem left off. Is that possible? ~~ Diana
