In Spirit and in Truth (2)

Wake up! Come now before your King

Repent and turn to me

Let truthful hearts true praises sing

Let Jesus set you free

Some think theyíre saved; still dressed in shame

That all they do; is right

But all their works must pass the Flame

And all is in my sight

That some molest the smallest waif

That man lies down with man

Your poor and old, arenít even safe

Was this! Godís holy plan?

These things you do by light of day

Finding in there no shame

You think because you sometimes pray

Your words will take the blame

If you persist in running wild

You canít be one of mine

Away!! Iíll say you wicked child-

And cut you from the Vine

You say that Iím a God of love

Iíll always be the same!

Beware; that I from high above-

Donít send consuming Flame

Pay heed, your lambs are but the best

The choicest, you can give

That now your deeds will pass the test

So in my Son youíll live

The Truth; you need to dwell inside

Your heart and soul to clean

To be a holy faithful bride

To be a righteous queen.....†

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.
