Eight from Seven (2)

If Jesusí Spiritís not within

If you donítí feel Him there

Could be my friend youíre still in sin

True life is not your share

If born again sounds strange to you

Although you go to church

Eternal life is not in view

Godís Truth; you need to search

Whoíll search for life, must first obey

Regardless of the cost

Regardless what the world may say

Who from The Truth are lost

Now if oneís lost whilst here on earth

Means Christ is not in sight

So how can one have second birth?

Without Godís guiding Light

Make no mistake of this my friend

The bible states quite plain

To be with Jesus in the end

Must first be born again†††††††††††††††† Jn.3:3-16

Rise up, whilst Christ can yet be found

Seek out a church thatís real

Plant sound your feet on higher ground

Receive from God His Seal

We must accept the true report

Repent in Jesus turn

To where Godís living Truth is taught

Whilst yet weíve time to learn

Where Christ is Lord, where Christ can reign

Where Jesusí Spirit rules

Where Truth Godís servants; will explain

And not the devilís toolsÖ..

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.
