In the Person of Jesus
Have I come to know
Why God extends mercy
And why He withholds

Individuals who betrayed

My own dignity stained

Friendships diced

Blood turned to ice

When I forsook God

My life became void

Loneliness employed

Holiness nearly destroyed

Although sin rebounded

I lived with a conscience proud

My love sound

But by pleasures was I bound

Jesus Christ sojourned

When the enemy lashed out

Out casted and cast out

From me silence, no shout

His Humble Spirit clung

To my bones, hung

On the tree

Somehow He loved me

Days, months, weeks

More than I could speak

His promise foretold

A renewed world in reach

Dare I mistake

The God Of Glory Who spake

All that is created

Even the One Who is most hated

A recent past

Immersed in glass

Transparent to my senses

My God His gain is limitless

I pardoned my self

Stepped out of my skin

Joined with The Ghost

My King, my Friend

Abruptly withheld

A test of pass/fail

Trust, I, The Lord Of Hosts

Or the lies in Hell

And the signs direct

His words are correct

Occurrences resurrect

Faith and belief do connect

My trust trusted Jesus

A Savior born of Mary

His Spirit never varied

Nor His unchanging nature

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.
