Countless to Christ refuse to bow

Many will fail and fall

Who will believe God’s warning now?

Who’ll heed Salvation’s call?


God’s not in mode Christ’s long passé

God’s word’s outdated rules

Continuing the devil’s way

Most walk to hell as fools


Yet those who at life’s crossroads stand

With no one’s help in sight

Whisper for Jesus’ helping hand

Take to the road that’s right


Yet most will say, that’s not my way

Religion’s for the weak

It’s not for me to kneel and pray

For better things I’ll seek


Rejecting now the hand of God

Refusing saving grace

Oblivious to Heaven’s Rod

They’ll never see God’s face


Instead they’ll see hell’s lake of flame

They’ll feel eternal pain

Where calling out The Saviour’s name

Will always be in vain


Humility; the proud must seek

The blind, should learn to see

The arrogant grow humbly meek

So Christ can set us free


God’s testing iron and hardened steel

Refining silver and gold

Be warned my friends learn now to kneel

Before your flesh grows cold.....

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.
