Jesus' Witnesses


Salvation is The Way to Life

Sifting of chaff and wheat 

God searching for a faithful wife

To sit at Jesus’ feet


God sent The Truth man’s heart to change

To spare one’s soul from wrath

Our selfish ways rearrange

To walk His chosen path


It’s not a passage for the weak

Devoid of faith and trust

But those willing God’s Way to seek

Whilst others turn to dust


Christians; followers of Christ

Sinner refined in blood

Not counting what they’ve sacrificed

But living as they should


Christ’s not religion with a veil

No ploy for dithering fools

Nor superstitious fairy tale

With insignificant rules


Who but a fool would live a lie?

Witnessing things they’d seen  

Be willing then for that to die 

What truly hadn’t been?


Yet those who saw their Saviour’s trial

Bore witness true and free

Unafraid at death to smile-2Pe.1:16

Knowing what’s soon will be


For just a hoax! Would these have died?

Would this! All twelve have planned?

If He who rose dwelt not inside

Giving them strength to stand…..

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.
