Don't Work for Satan

DON'T WORK FOR SATAN

††


Weíre saved by grace, through Godís own blood


Godís Spirit makes us strong


We try to live the way we should


Yet much can still go wrong



Where hate resides in place of love


The devilís work is done


Our deeds oppose Godís will above


And that of Christ His Son



We harm a brother just as Cain


The Lord our God is grieved


The devilís workís yet done again


Once more; weíve been deceived



With lust; we greet our neighbourís wife


With Satanís deep desire


His will can so destroy oneís life


To end within hellís fire



Heís out to kill, deceive and rob


To tempt the faithful few


Yet still we ease for him his job


Through every sin we do



This work must cease! Lifeís not a game


We must repent and fight


Take up the sword in Jesusí name


When Satan prowls in sight



ĎResist the foe and he shall fleeí


This statementís more than true


Trust in The Lord, stand firm and see


The devil slink from view



We need not suffer Adamís fate


Making the same mistake


Obey! The Lord, before too late


Or burn in Satanís lake.....

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.
