The Bride Changing

The Bride Changing



 



The state of man, is not God’s fault



His offered grace is sure



He longs to season each with salt



And from all ailments cure



 



But till the cross this world can see



The pain, Christ chose to bear



The Way stays blocked to set her free



Eternal life to share



 



Comfortable; she still runs wild



Content revolves in sin



Too selfish to be reconciled



Through wanton lust within



 



As bride! The church should show The Way



Disclose demonic lies



Make known her Saviour’s love today



Opening blinded eyes



 



How can we bring such change about?



Reform the devil’s whore



How can we end her lethal doubt?



And open life’s barred door



 



The world must learn of Jesus’ bride



Should know who dwells within



Must learn He comes as guide inside



Teaching to combat sin



 



He comes to help us read God’s Word



With fire to keep us free



He comes when hearts The Truth has heard



And facts begin to see



 



He comes when Christ we see as Lord



When heart and soul obey



When through the blood willingly poured



Has washed our filth away.....

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.
