A Fool May Understand


How angry grows the devil’s clan

Frustration’s soaring high

Through Christ they’ve seen that mortal man

May fear no more to die


Revealed through Christ is selfless love

Obedience never known

Salvation’s Way to God above

And life at Heaven’s throne


The world will see tumultuous hate

Man’s teeth will gnash in fear

Ferocious rage will escalate 

As Jesus’ day draws near


Masses will seek an early grave

Countless will wonder why

When others seek their souls to save

Too late! Will be the cry


The time is now! The place is here

The Truth is close at hand

The evidence so crystal clear

A fool may understand


From Satan’s bed we need to flee

Leave darkness far behind

Seek Jesus Christ for eyes to see

Life’s secrets to unwind


Repent and flee the devil’s curse

Accept God’s Lamb divine

Through whom life’s shadows will disperse

For Heaven’s Lamp to shine


Receive The Gift of Christ The Lord

The Councilor of souls

God’s Living Flame God’s mighty Sword

And Guide to Heaven’s goals…..

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.
