But God Can Hate Too
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

†But God can hate too

We hear so much that God is love

Most think itís for the best

But some in death, when high above

Theyíll find they have no rest

Godís love is true! There is no doubt

In Christ, itís hard to hide

But what most fail to talk about

Is what He canít; abide

Who live to sin will surely die

To find themselves in hell!

Though Jesusí love is not a lie

The Lord can hate as well

Like cows well fed, grown sleek and fat

Some sit with nought to do

Once saved, they think that that is that

Godís love will see them through

Some hear lifeís call, yet fail to come

Theyíve nought but self; in mind

Though God is love, He isnít dumb

And neither is He blind

Within the world Godís children die

Outside of Jesusí hand

Without the ďWordĒ they wonder why?

Failing to understand

Thereís more to God than meets the eye

His Word is truly profound

He says thereís more for you and I

Than just to sit around

Beware pay heed what Jesus said

Learn now! God to fear

Donít play the fool until youíre dead

Trust God and serve Him here.....

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.
