And on that YES
the future of the world depends." - Wallace Stevens
This little poem is wonderfully intriguing. It is worth reading a few times before one comes to understand what he is getting at. It may be helpful to read this in conjunction with the following words from Revelation.
Revelation 14:13 - Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labour, for their deeds will follow them.”
Revelation 22:20 - He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
Death will be the final No for each one of us, but after this No there will come a great YES. Our eternal future depends on the YES of Christ.
