There's No Other Way(2)

Thereís secret depths; within Godís Word

The wisest man canít find

Without The Christ, itís quite absurd

Without His Light, weíre blind

Even when told, man wonít believe

The Truth Godís written down

For Satanís job is to deceive!

To cheat and rob lifeís crown

Did man believe the prophetís pen?

Did man believe heíd stray?

So whoíll believe Godís servant when-

They speak The Truth today?

The Word is truly Godís decree

His secrets in a book!

Through Christ revealed, that man may see

If only he would look

Through Jesus Christ we see life dawn

We see The Truth first hand

Through Godís own blood is man reborn

Through grace we understand

Through water! This cannot be done

Nor man, with all his might

But through the blood of Christ Godís Son

His Liquid Streams of Light

Did John baptise in Holy Flame?†††† Mt.3:11

Was water not his mark?

So man went in and out the same

Still sinning in the dark

Godís Holy Ghost; we †truly need

His Flame inside to rage

Receive Godís ďTruthĒ salvationís Seed

Before we turn lifeís page.....

Thereís secret depths; within Godís Word

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.
