He'll Judge in Righteousness (3)

He'll Judge in Righteousness (3)

You’ll lose, and not just for a while

But through the end of time

Then all you’ve won, is Satan’s smile

For every moments crime


Of Satan’s schemes take no more part

Repent of all things vile

Allow God’s word within your heart

To guide you through each trial


God gives us strength where ere He can

Through faith He’ll vanquish doubt

But righteousness must judge a man

For that’s what law’s about


Who have no will from Christ to stray

No thought one’s sin to hide

To loving arms on judgement day

They’ll stand with Christ beside


Each selfish act, each evil deed

To God all things confessed

Who’ve truly followed Jesus’ lead

Will pass the Judge’s test


For sins confessed, when books are read

Cannot be brought again

When self, through Jesus cross lays dead

The sentence should be plain


When in white robes one’s eyes can see

Before God’s throne of light

Both man and Judge will then agree

God’s wisdom proves Him right


In truth! God’s church can dance and sing

In Christ, great joy display

What else can then life’s judgement bring?

To those who now obey…..

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.
