What Company Do You Keep
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

What Comapany do You Keep

In palace, sewer or in a pew

Satanic hoards wait out of view

Within man’s bowels the devils lurk

Tempting God’s sheep to evil work


If we don’t lead a life of prayer

We’ll swear no demons dwell in there

They live on fear, thriving on doubt

But fasting prayer will drive them out


God’s righteous Way we must pursue

Or else will squat a silent few

Yet though they keep their profiles low

In Jesus’ name they too must go


Without The Truth! God’s Christ God’s Son

There’s not a lot that can be done

But with His Flame inside our heart

We’ll see how swift demons depart


Yet lost amidst hell’s darkest powers

The world is chained in Satan’s towers

She needs to flee his evil camp

Guided by Christ Salvation’s Lamp


God’s living Truth will turn the tide

He comes to shine from deep inside

The Holy Ghost God’s Gift of Light

Will help and comfort day and night


Living by faith, will see love flow

Thriving; in resplendent glow

From tattered rags and filthy soul

We’ll rise in glory saved and whole


Once free of chains that had us bound

Before hell’s realm we’ll stand our ground

Knowing The Truth we’ll never stray

Nor fail through Christ to win the day…..

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.
