KNOWING

I am standing on the South side
But I like the North side best,
Though from whichever side you're on
The valley runs East to West.

This valley was made by a split, you know
Some won't believe that yet;
It happened when the Christ stood on -
The top of Olivet.

The unbelieving say, "You're
just walking in a dream."
If that is so, then I ask
Have you read Zechariah 14 ?

( Jesus will come again and stand on the Mt. of Olives from where he ascended Acts 1:11,12)
