are these ones we cannot see,
Though we feel them so very near?
In the chapel
we felt them bend the knee,
At parades we felt them cheer.
the shadow and shade of Harvard Yard,
In the musty hall's dim light;
are nagging here and niggering there,
Yet never in sound or sight.
the masses so free as they vote and choose;
And send "the best man"
off to reign;
Believe they are masters of their fate,
But, their trust and
faith is in vain.
from the shadow steps a don,
With a threat and a bribe so grand;
men are neutered and spayed,
Enslaved by the Hidden Hand.
these ghosts on high-- they seem so shy,
With deference and feigned distraction;
tinker with oil and blood and gore,
In a chess game to their satisfaction.
the masses wail at the puppet pols,
As if they were the enemy grim;
the Hidden Hand in an orgy of lust,
Just laughs and snickers and grins.
the heathen rage in a vain thing sweet,
As they set themselves on high;
rape the world and skim the cream,
While thousands bleed and die.
Jehovah laughs, and so do we,
At these "bastard sons" so grand;
in prayer, on our knees, with fervent zeal,
We make war on the Hidden Hand.
This poem is my way of putting the present distress in the world into perspective.
We are not at war with Presidents and Prime Ministers. They are mere puppets of
the Hidden Hand, men who stand in the shadows and control the puppets. These of
the Hidden Hand are sold out to Satan, and in unguarded moments, they have been
caught in their worship of Lucifer.
6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness
in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye
may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be
able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of
salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto
with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
always" is the final and most potent weapon.
how do we pray in regard to evil men?
10:13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt
not require it.
14 Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite,
to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the
helper of the fatherless.
15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil
man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
16 The LORD is King for
ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
may always pray that God will give us peace under the rule of tyrants. But, we
pray in spiritual warfare that evil men and oppressors would be destroyed by God.
All through the Psalms David calls out to God to destroy the wicked in high places.
Have we become pacifists or spiritual warriors?
Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound
the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things
which are mighty;
28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised,
hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that

30 But of him are
ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and
sanctification, and redemption:
are surrounded on all sides by evil men-- we have them right were we want them--
don't let any of them get away. "War a good warfare...."
Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies
which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
