The Question Is
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

The Question Is


Have you resigned to die for Christ?

Is righteousness your goal?

Is self to Heaven sacrificed?

To purge your ailing soul


Are you prepared to rise on high?

To turn your back on sin

Ceasing to question how and why

The war of life’s to win


Are you prepared for all out war?

Prepared to stand and fight

Closing for life the devil’s door

Through which you found delight


You’re so in love completely sold?

You feel no worldly loss

Leaving behind your thirst for gold?

To take in hand your cross


You’ve vowed of sin to take no part

Your eyes are trained above

For Heaven’s realm within your heart

Is calling you to love


To love yourself as those around

Treat neighbours as your friend

Helping guiding to higher ground

Praying their shame would end


Say yes to Christ and take His hand

Say yes and praise His name

Pull down each house yet built on sand

And walk as living Flame


Of Heaven’s Truth let others know

Resist satanic charms

Allow God’s Spirit rise and flow

Within Salvation’s arms.....

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.
