I.
Few weeks ago, we were watching a talent show
Where magicians displayed such clever wizardry
And several songbirds set our spirits aglow
 
Yes, there were some who resorted to trickery
To sway and convince the judges and the viewers
Some even sobbed to impress with their sad story!
 
But all of them just wanted to be a winner
From above be showered with golden confetti
And receive the ultimate– the golden buzzer!
 
The buzzer, passport to a new reality
Onwards to continue, perform at center stage
While for unlucky ones a stark finality!
 
Yet there’s hope eternal for all at every age
Dreams and longings, the golden buzzer will assuage
 
II.
In our  lives, we too long for a golden buzzer
Earn the ticket, we may bypass life’s suffering
Cheat death! go on to live in heaven forever!
 
Enoch and Elijah received the Lord’s blessing
Only two in human recorded history
Avoiding death, they have gained life everlasting
 
For all of us, it’s the ultimate victory
There’s Enoch, Elijah – footsteps we could follow
They walked with God and avoided death’s misery
 
It’s not just a wish, nor a dream till tomorrow
But a sincere hope - tame death, gain life hereafter,
Like Enoch may we annul death’s pain and sorrow
 
Like Elijah, may a chariot be our  buzzer
And in that glorious morn, may we meet our Maker!

And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Genesis 5:24 KJV

And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
2 Kings 2:11 KJV

And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Revelations 7:4 KJV

Amen! Walking with God daily as Enoch did will we get the Golden Buzzer. May we look always at His Face to that blessed morning when Jesus comes in the clouds for all to see.

In God’s image on the sixth day and ever since humans multiply. And will evermore.

Like. Beautiful analogy. Thanks Brod.
