Die Not A Fool


Of God! We all have given thought

Of death we’ve all shown fear

Still countless doubt The Lord’s report

Though judgement day draws near


The time is here the time is now

Life’s choice is given free

In faith we only need to bow

In shadow of The Tree


Where God His selfless love revealed

Where true obedience reigned

Where blood and guts made Satan yield

And life’s lost keys regained


But who will seek The Father’s face?

Bid Jesus Christ within?

Who’ll grab the Father’s saving grace?

And turn their backs on sin?


Consider the pain Christ Jesus bore

Creation’s King on high

Will it be Heaven or hell’s door?

He’ll open when you die


Make no mistake though God is love

He hates when people fail

In righteousness He’ll rule above

Casting rebels in jail


Refusing that which Heaven shares

Christ will have died in vain

You’ll die with dreams living nightmares

Eternally in pain


Be wise and see Salvation dawn

Turn Christ God’s Lamb your ear

Open your eyes, become reborn

And vanquish every fear.....

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.
