Are You Ready

Are You Ready?


Are you prepared to meet The Lord?

Despite the devil’s wiles

You’ll flee the thirsting of his sword

And future coming trials


Are you ready for your Maker yet?

Is your soul safe and sound?

Is your heart on Christ so firmly set?

You know you’re Heaven bound


Perhaps your mind’s still plagued with doubt

Your heart’s in disarray

You think to know what life’s about

Living from day to day


Or maybe Jesus Christ you’ve known

Perhaps The Truth was yours

But now your heart’s grown cold as stone

You’ve opened Satan’s doors


The day has come the time is near

When tribulation dawns

The anti Christ will soon appear

With ten enormous horns


The Truth will count for less than nought

Blundering in the dark 

With nothing sold where nothing’s bought

Without the devil’s mark


With bibles being less that rare

God Spirit’s taken flight   2Thes.2:7

Suffering will be everywhere

If there’s a hint of Light        


Denying Christ as God divine

Denying Heaven’s will

Life’s blood will flow as cheap red wine

The mouth of graves to fill.....

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.
