Times of Tribulation


Beware believers in the west

God’s servants in the east

Drinking The Truth at Heaven’s breast

Fail not the wedding feast


The day will dawn will soon appear

When hearts are plagued with lies

When many saved live in fear

As those deceived arise


Before the dreadful times begin

When tribulation starts

We need to turn away from sin

And love who made our hearts


Kings and governments will succumb

Darkness will raise its head

They’ll bind the church to strike her dumb

And steal her Children’s bread


Believing Heaven nullified

That Christ was only man

Religions will be unified

Beneath the rule of man


Death’s evil fingers long and cold

Seeking their master’s prey

Will reach not few remaining bold

Gross evil to display


Whilst shadows dance and darkness sings

Many their lives to save

Will then renounce The King of kings

And flee a while the grave


Stand sound  true soldiers of the cross

Even as loved ones die

Throughout the pain through dreadful loss

Raise Jesus’ standard high.....

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.
