Invite the Fire


Where is the grass on earth so green?

There is no need to move

What else should lustful eyes have seen?

Or selfish egos prove


Some think they’re God and seek to reign

From truth they won’t be told

They live their lives on earth in vain

Seeking for worldly gold


The fool believes no God exists

Devoid of Truth and Light

Sorely deceived the world .insists

Darwinian Theory’s right


One thing this world must understand

One thing one’s heart must see

Man; the produce of Jesus’ hand

To God must bend the knee


The Lord our God is no man’s fool

Supreme, He reigns alone

The whole wide world’s His footstool

And Heaven is His throne


By word alone creation came

By word alone it thrives

Today God’s Word comes as a Flame

To purge our sinful lives


But do we want a righteous life?

Desire our Father’s cure?

Is man so used to endless strife?

Must war with God endure?


God’s peace will dawn through faith’s desire

When hearts take captive doubt

When man invites Salvation’s Fire

When humble souls cry out.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
