EUTEOTW: Gethsemane

itad bug white




I bowed my knees proper

And lonely I drained the basin

My sweat beaded hastily

All stress endued by Satan


And the path broken; shattered

No return to the Eden before

Dimness of light on all corners

The perseverance higher; the intensity the storm


My tears as blood dripping

Sorrow in a cup running over

It is but chastening by my Lord

I am brittle; brushed asunder


The dawn of Calvary bled

Minutes, if not hours premature

For the anguish tethered my soul

To the heart did mercilessness incur


Battered by demons; rotted

A carcass no man would touch

I lunged to that cross; fallen

Into the hands of God I submitted my trust



And now glorify Thy Son

With the glory that was revealed


Published by Matthew Pope

A graduate of Belmont Abbey College, a Catholic, private institution, Matthew received his Bachelors of Arts degree in Theology in May of 2012. Upon registering for pastoral training in August of 2013, he was formerly a Master of Divinity student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, pursuing the Evangelism program. With a transparent calling from God, his life dramatically changed as he received confirmation into The Catholic Church in November of 2016. Matthew's passion rests in serving the nations with the hope of The Gospel. Author of his lay-ministry, Even Unto The End Of The World, which was established on November 12, 2013, he has also produced his previous books: In Doctrine, Uncorrupt (which was released on February 15, 2014) and Assembled With One Accord (published on December 1, 2015), and is currently writing and planning for following books to come. With a revelatory vision, Matthew intends to encounter the culture and Christendom with truth. In addition, he intends to draw forth the rudiments of the Most Holy Catholic Faith to transform all Christian denominations into The One Church. Matthew confessed Jesus Christ as Savior at age seventeen, impressed with the desire to enter the ministry, in March of 2008. A native of Shelby, North Carolina, he was born on May 28, 1990. He now resides in Wake Forest, North Carolina where he has been actively writing since late 2013.
