Radical

 

Be radical for truth and light

Living by God’s decree

Radical for each person’s right

To live and serve God free

 

Free for the whole wide world to tell

The truth of Satan’s lies

To leave behind all roads to hell

To open blinded eyes

 

To He The Father sacrificed

The Lamb nailed to a tree

God’s living Son, King, Priest & Christ

Who sets the captive free

 

Be not ashamed because He died

Nor be afraid of strife

Reveal Christ Jesus glorified

The route to endless life

 

Become a beacon on a hill

For sheep still lost below

By grace of God and Heaven’s will

Be radical and glow

 

Be not afraid for Christ to stand

Grow stronger day by day

Grow radical within His hand

Revealing Heaven’s Way

 

Be radical the truth to cry

Revealing facts above

That more and more may rise on high

Into the arms of love

 

Speak plain to those in church disguise

God’s judgement will be sure

Be radical claim life’s great prize

Beyond The Father’s door…..

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.
