How Is Received

 

How is received of Heaven’s breathe?

Eternal Light and grace

How can one flee from hell and death

And see The Father’s face

 

Surely The Lord God’s made a way

Foreseeing the plight of man

Knowing we’d seek His face one day

He thus devised a plan 

 

To raise forever His elect

To stand Him ever true

Our lives to change our ways correct

And His alone pursue

 

But darkness wants to keep us blind

To lie to rob and kill

To steal the soul to twist the mind

And cheat of Heaven’s will

 

Yet wisdom serves God’s servants well

Through knowledge we’ve a tool

Keeping both safe and sound from hell

And from demonic rule

 

Knowing our God His Lamb and Son

His Truth and guiding Light

Our total victory’s surely won

When righteously we fight

 

Thus can we free ourselves of sin

A shameful heart make pure

Receive The Holy Ghost within

And death’s most certain cure

 

Who’ll seek! Will find at Jesus’ feet

Salvation through and through

Will find by grace as God’s elite

That life begins anew.....

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.
