Reject the Rot

Reject the Rot


In life adrift when Satan rules

Misguided by deceit

Many have strayed as blundering fools

Away from Grace’s Feet


Distrusting Truth, rejecting Christ

Through selfish hearts of stone

Ignorant why God sacrificed

The Lamb on Heaven’s throne


From east to west remains the same

Playing the fool anew

We live to self we walk in shame

Towards our unseen due


Choosing instead satanic rot

Darwin’s ignorant scrawl

Many fall fowl of Satan’s plot

Bringing about their fall


Whilst wrapped in lust in self desire

Love sings of grace in vain

We err towards hell’s blazing fire

Searching for personal gain


For righteousness we ought to thirst

In everything we do

God calls to love, to love Him first

To love our neighbours too


Let each now take a look inside

Scrutinize deep within

Before we reach the last divide

Enslaved to rotting sin


Repent! Turn now towards The Light

Pray Jesus to forgive

Receive God’s promised robe of white

Eternally to live.....

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.
