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.
