Who'll Accept?

Who'll Accept?

 

Eternal life is not absurd

Nor fleeing death and hell

Through the power of Christ God’s Word

The bible has to tell

 

But who’ll accept The Truth at hand?

Believe He’s Jesus Christ?

Who’ll take time to understand?

The Lamb God sacrificed

 

How much instead we love the tongue

Of he who tells us lies

Though singing songs the devil’s sung

Will see us die like flies

 

How sweet he spreads each wily scheme

With thoughts he’d feed our mind

He’d keep us from Salvation’s stream

Remaining Jesus blind

 

For Jesus is The only Way

To flee the coming wrath

The only hope to flee decay

To walk Salvation’s Path

 

The strongest fall, the richest fail

The wise behave like fools

We all have sampled Satan’s jail

Breaking The Father’s rules

 

But Truth that comes from God alone

Power that cannot die

Will melt the hardest hearts of stone

And pave The Way on high

 

Receive God‘s Light to shine within

Accept Christ King of kings

Allow God’s Fire burn your sin

Beneath Christ’s healing wings.....

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.
