No Need to Die

No Need to Die

The Father heard His servants cry

Before The Christ He sent†††††††††††††††††

Now man; no longer has to die

If he would but repent

Thereís nothing weak, when people turn

Of this; make no mistake

But those who donít will surely burn

With Satan in the lake

The fireís real the devil too

Yet Jesus lives as well

So where my friend will death find you?

In Heaven or in hell

No need to laugh, nor shake your head

This life is not a game

Best now repent, or find when dead

The truth about hellís flame

No sin with God can ever live

Of this; one can be sure

Christ Jesus died, His all to give

That man be found now pure

Godís Spirit brings to understand

The things He has to say

His Truth, His Love, and at first hand

Weíll learn to walk His Way

To find! The Truth, we need true Light

Through Jesusí selfless Love

Weíve grace and strength to win the fight

Leading to life above

There is no need for man to die

Through Christ; itís all been done

But those who fail to heed lifeís cry

Will see no morning sun.....

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.
