Below is my son's declamation piece at School. Praise God he got 95% while others got 80-90%.
In the vast expanse of a timeless place,
Where silence ruled the outer space,
Ominously, towering it stood, The symbol of a spirit war
Between the one name Lucifer,
And the Morning Star, The ultimate of good.
Who will decide who forever will be the Champion?
The audience for the 'Fight of the Ages' was
assembled. The angels came in splendor from a star.
The demons arrived, offensive and vile,
cursing and blaspheming God.
Then Arrogantly prancing, hands held high, Trolled by demons, Satan ascended from Hell.
Then Satan cringed, the sinners groaned!
The demons reeled in pain as a swell of power
like silent thunder rolled With a surge of light beyond intense,
In resplendent glory appeared the Son of God.
Opening the Book of Life, each grandstand hushed in awe as
majestically He said,
"Now here's the rules. He'll be wounded for their transgressions,
bruised for iniquities" When He said, "By His stripes they're
healed," the devil shook!
He screamed, "Sickness is my specialty. I hate that healing junk!"
God said, "You shut your face, I wrote the book!"
Then the Father looked at His only Son and said,
"You know the rules. Your blood will cleanse their sins and calm their fears."
Then He pointed His finger at Satan and said,
"And I know you know the rules.
You've been twisting them to deceive My people for years."
Satan screamed, "I'll kill you Christ! You'll never win this fight!"
The demons wheezed, "That's right, there ain't no way."
Satan jeered, "You're dead meat, Jesus, I'm gonna bust you UP tonight!"
Jesus said, "Go ahead, make my day!"
The bell rang, the crowd cheered, the fight was on, And the devil leaped in fury.
He threw his jabs of hate and lust. A stab of pride and envy but the hand that
knew no sin blocked every one.
Now the final blow saved for the final round.
Prophetically Christ's hands came down
And Satan struck in vengeance!
The blow of death felled Jesus to the ground.
The devils roared in victory!
The saints shocked and perplexed as wounds
appeared upon His hands and feet.
Then Satan kicked Him in His side, and blood and water flowed.
And they waited for the 10 count of defeat.
God the Father turned His head,
His tears announcing Christ was dead!
The 10 count would proclaim the battle's end.
Then Satan trembled through his sweat in
unexpected horror, yet...
As God started to count by saying,
"Hey wait a minute, God..." "...9..." "Stop!
You're counting wrong..."
His eyes are moving...
His fingers are twitching...
"Where's all this Light coming from?"
"Oh - nooooo!"
He has won!
He's alive forevermore!
He is risen, He is Lord,
Proclaim the news in every tongue,
Through endless ages and beyond
Let it be voiced from mountains loud and strong
Captivity has been set free, salvation bought for you and me
'Cause Satan is defeated,
And Jesus is The Champion
