The Valley of Hinnom (Or a Wicked and Diabolical Place in the Ancient Land of Gehenna)

February 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 138

In the valley of death,in ancient AramaicI hear his voice muttering profane obscenities as he desecrates the sacred name of Jesus Christ

But all in all isn't it fitting for a forsaken king? To be surrounded by wailing carcasses upon a despicable mound of loathsome feces. For this is a noted spot Situated somewhere close to the fabled city of old Jerusalem

Yet it is in the voice that I can hear the sounds of tender virgins crying And in the flowing blood of little lambs and behemoth wool, I cry for the calamities of fools But this is no grave for the fainthearted or for those who may have been born with a weakened stomach

After all it is a hole for Satan And it's stench has been documented by both friend and foe alike And while its putrid smell has inflamed many a nostril, its resonance proceeds as the image of the land has created an iconic figure that blisters in the minds of tormented people as ordinary souls begin to contemplate their significance and think about the implication of the sins that they have committed here on earth

Immersed in an environment that is said to have been saturated in raunch,the parabolic place takes no prisoners. Individuals who have been known to establish any form of serial logic have frequently been tied to a stake and scratched from a somnolent page In the reign of Josiah efforts were made to abolish the fire Yet memories linger and the flesh of burning children may prove to be too hard to forget

But tell me if there is a heaven must there be such a horrid hell? The wrath of an infinite spirit is just so hard to comprehend But in the book of Deuteronomy and Leviticus it is written, Inspired by the Cult of the Phoenicians and Canaanites, Moloch did it. Splitting the heads of innocent children to allow an evil demon force to emerge

So take me far from the southern wall, past the foot of Zion and beyond the Kidron bottom The gods of the pantheon are far too much to endure Take me to the pure water where my skin can heal Beneath a shady tree allow me to drink the sweet nectar of a sugary peach Because if I continue to contemplate the great significance Of Gehenna my hair will fall and my mind will break
