The Law Is Here and Now

The Law Is Here and Now


Most fail to do The Father’s will

Most see no sign of ruin

But on the day we pay life’s bill

We’ll sing a different tune


For no excuse will God appease

Regardless how we try

However long upon our knees

We seek His face and cry


For “Righteous” is The Father’s name

Virtuous; His hand

And on the day He judges shame

His rectitude will stand


This law still stands as in the past

Yet few of us uphold

To love our Father first and last

Love neighbours as we’re told


We lie, we cheat, we kill and rape

 Adultery’s everywhere

So now from God there’s no escape

No punishment He’ll spare


There’s no escape for anyone

No fortune can afford

Without the help of Christ His Son

We’ll feel God’s vengeful sword


For this; The Saviour left His throne

For this; He suffered pain

If God would now our sins condone?

Christ will have died in vain


The law is here the time is now

The choice is ours to make

To Jesus Christ our knees must bow

Or pay for each mistake.....

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.
