Fighting with God

Fighting with God


Who of us war against The Lord?

Who disobeys The King?

What foolishness could man afford?

To dam life’s righteous spring


Depraved; this world is lost and blind

Corrupt through self desire

Who can bring freedom to her mind?

And save from endless fire


What could trouble her soul within?

Convince of filth inside

Reveal the consequence sin

She’d wish to turn the tide


Let’s look at life, at nature’s source

Examine mind and soul

Should passing wealth remain our course?

And fleeting dreams our goal?


What else should God have need to say?

Or Heaven have to tell?

Did Christ not make and show The Way?

To rise to free from hell?


The bible’s here for all to read

The Truth’s quite plain in view

To endless life is ‘death’ The Seed

Rising to life anew


We need to die to selfish will

Desist of wanton lust

Through faith receive of Christ our fill

Turning our doubts to dust


From wickedness we must repent

Request God’s Truth & Light

Receive The Oil Heaven’s sent

And cease our foolish fight......

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.
