With That Same Meaasure (1)

Godís judgement with the bride will start

The church bearing His name

Through Spiritual Fire in her heart

Convicting her of shame

Revealing deeds of wilful sin

Purging her wayward land

Lifeís righteous Judge will first begin

With those in Jesusí hand

I speak of facts in truth my friend

You say Iím not to judge

But all my words will Christ defend

And bear for me no grudge

Self-righteous! Yet you say of me

But God enthroned on high

Can see the times I bend the knee

When such as you, I cry

My soul is clean my words are true

No more with heart of stone

In Jesusí name I speak to you

No more am I my own

The line I use is not too short

My scales and levelís good††††††††††††††††††† Pro.11:1

With this in mind I just report

And judge, as watchmen should††††††††† ††Eze.33:1-20

With selfsame scales The Living God

Will judge each word I say

Heíll use on me the selfsame rod†††††††††† Mt.7:2

As now I use today

Of this my friend I have no fear

I judge with love in mind

Thatís why today Iím standing here

For God, the truthís not blindÖ..

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.
