Man's Grave Misconception.....

Man's Grave Misconception


Sadly! The world thinks when we die

Though flesh, may feed the grave

All souls will surely rise on high

Through Heavens love to save


What benefits serving The Lord?

Advantage being good

Why on earth would He wield His Sword?

Flooding the world with blood


Has He not given to all free choice?

What on earth would it mean?

If one can’t hear His warning Voice

Should penalties intervene?


If Heaven’s real, should not be hell?

Life’s journey, also above

If this were true; would not Heaven tell!

If God is Perfect Love


But righteous is Life’s faultless King

Religion, fails to say

If true Life’s facts, world faiths would bring

Which song would wisdom sing?


Such are questions of man deceived

Averse to giving thought

If Truth or lies would be believed

Read Heaven’s true report


Open the bible, study each word

Examine front to rear

Consider conflict you have heard

All doubt will disappear


This is The Word of God!!! Not man

Revealing Christ is The Way

God’s living Truth, most virtuous plan

Try speaking with Jesus, today.....

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.
