What Will Be Your Wage?

What Will Be Your Wage?


The Way to life is open wide

God’s grace is gratis free

Calling His sheep to come inside

For life with guarantee


Yet those rejecting Christ on high

The Key to Heaven’s Door

Heed well the ark in days gone by

And Sodom town before


The Word of God’s no fairy tale

The bible tells no lie

Rebels will end in Satan’s jail

When steeped in sin they die


Eternity will hear their screams

Mercy; they’ll cry in vain

In hell beyond their wildest dreams

Suffering endless pain


Such torment is a sinner’s due

Who’ve lived without God’s Son

Who’s name is not with Jesus’ few

When work is finally done


God then will call His children home

Upon their Groom’s return

While angles use a fine toothed comb

For parasites to burn


Then woe to those who play the fool

Heeding not God’s decrees

Who live and die demonic tool

Who’ve sought but self to please


Repent; show now your neighbour love

Obey The Lord’s command

Seek guidance through The Truth above

Receive the wage God planned.....

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.
