Can You See

 

Countless deny The Virgin Birth

Deny The Living Christ

Saying He never walked on earth

Or for us sacrificed

 

God lives in Heaven all alone

He has no Son and heir

Nor is He made of flesh and bone

With wife a child to bear

 

Such thoughts conceive a feeble mind

Fathered by Satan’s lie

To rob the church to keep her blind

And doubt to multiply

 

Truth; however is plain to see

By those seeking The Light

Whom Jesus Christ God’s Lamb set free

Who’ve found The Way to fight

 

That Way is Jesus Christ on high

 Lord God seldom believed

Who chose on earth for man to die

That they be not deceived

 

Five hundred came from far and wide

They saw with open eyes

The spotless Lamb of God who died

They saw God’s Son arise?

 

Witnesses wrote of Jesus’ birth

Who heard their Master’s voice

Who walked with Christ three years on earth

Who made His Way, their choice

 

They suffered much and died in pain

Along their chosen Way

They knew their deaths were not in vain

As some can see today.....

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.
