They MUST Have Seen
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

They MUST Have Seen

Confusion; is an evil foe

One of the devil’s seeds

A cancer that he makes to grow

When on a mind it feeds


God’s children found in Jesus’ hand

Who by God’s grace are free

Will live and serve at God’s command

Where all the world can see


They’ll turn in Christ the other cheek

They’ll smile and bear the rod

They’ll hear, when others point and speak

“There goes a child of God”


Like Matthew, Mark, like Luke and John

Who walked the extra mile

They knew so well God’s Lamb & Son           Jn.1:1

At death; they’d even smile                             Mk.10:39


For who’s prepared for nought to die?

For something only heard?

If Christ was just another lie                           Jn.18:11

Their death would be absurd                           1Co.15:19


They must; have seen! The risen Lord          Ac.1:3

Heard Jesus as He spoke                                 Jn.21:10

Seen holes, those dreadful nails had bored    Jn.20:27

For them to bear their yoke


Christ’s holy name, could none deny            Ac.7-

From truth, would no-one part

For righteousness, they chose to die

With Jesus in their heart


Who now, confusion cast aside

Who learn The Lord to fear

Who seek God’s Lamb who came and died         Lk.23-

To them, will Christ appear.....                             1Jn.3:2…

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.
