Who am I? I, even I,
breathe the breath of fire and stir up dust and death. I have stripped the
forests of their olden cover and bared their soil to the drying sun and burnt to
crust their fertile glades.
I have opened windows of the heavens and broken deeps of springs beneath the
ocean bed. *(Genesis
I have stormed the seas and whisked the depths unleashing tidal wave to swallow
schools and homes and families.
I have scarred the land, removed its ancient rite of late and early rain and
dried the crops of grass and grain and let the cattle on a thousand hills die
I roll up sheet of cloud and draw the bundle tight then split asunder mountain
rocks and walk in darkness, laughing, laughing at the terror I have wrought.
I took up my abode within the people of the Father I despise and there I live
and ply my trade.
The Father gave me name, one word; He called me Sin.
He called me Sin for Sin breaks law and in itself is lawlessness and thus He
said my name is Sin. *(1st
John 3:4). He warned that I would upset nature’s order *(Jeremiah
5:25) until His people cried, ‘O, wretched that I am, who will deliver me
from the body of this death?’ *(Romans
7:24) ‘For the sin you would not do, you do, and the good you would, you
do not do,’ *(Romans
7:19) for I do reign within, without, and you belong to me.
Then He, the One who gave me name, cried out to raging dark and sky of brass, *(Deuteronomy
28:23,24) ‘My Father, why have you forsaken me?’ *(Mark
15:34) ‘Who shall deliver me?’ and only one voice penetrates the evil
cord I bind you with. It strikes your mind, your heart, your limb, and says
‘I am made sin for you that you might have my righteousness.’ *(2nd
Corinthians 5:21) ‘for where sin did abound, did grace abound much more.’
5:15). And you come forth in resurrection light for once you were in death
with Him and now you live in Him. *(Romans
And you are free of me and though I rage as lion storming height and den and
throne and grave, *(1st
Peter 5:8) you truly are no longer mine but His. *(Romans
And you have peace. *(John
