A war is on and no one cares

Except a chosen few

The world at large seeks Satan’s wares

With scarcely else in view


She’s blind; she’s lost by Satan bound

She’s to herself a fool

So night and day she’s losing ground

The devil plans to rule


Yet we; the chosen of The Lord

The bride of Christ God’s Son

Have in our hand a mighty Sword

Through whom all wars are won


So Satan seeks our peace and joy

He’ll pillage, cheat and steal

He’ll stoop to use most any ploy

To bruise the church’s heel


But by God’s grace our Captain’s here

Our Lord our righteous King

In Him God’s army needn’t fear

When steeped in faith we sing


Yet few can see these facts are real

True praise brings strength divine

That through Christ’s blood, through Heaven’s Seal

We’ll drink the victor’s wine


But first we need to understand

The church can win her fight

When in The Master’s mighty hand

We shine His righteous Light


Christ inside can use His powers

Reveal through us His love

Can usher more within life’s towers

To fellowship above.....

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.
