Are You Still Foolish?

Are You Still Foolish?

 

Wisdom! Can have so much to tell

Facts of The King on high

Facts of Heaven of deepest hell

Of why we live or die

 

Still fools believe the devil’s lies

Tales that devils spread

Fooling the shrewdest worldly wise

Until they’re walking dead

 

Are you a fool, the devil’s clown?

Wandering lost and blind

Has Satan robbed you of life’s crown?

As most of all mankind

 

Deception’s planted everywhere

Religious sects abound

Each having something else to share

Leading to hallowed ground

 

Although the bible’s here to read

God’s Word righteous and free

The world’s so drunk on selfish weed

Her children fail to see

 

That Heaven’s Door is open now!

Love’s arms are stretched out wide

One only needs their knees to bow

And walk through Christ inside

 

Christ did it all He did it well

Nothing remains to do

But take The Hand that leads from hell

And guides to birth anew

 

A brand new life a fresh new start

Souls made free and pure

Through God Himself within our heart

Making election sure.....

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.
