       God's Gift Promised

Can true perfection now be reached? –Mt.5:48

Can man be born-again?-Jn.3:3

Or is it nonsense Jesus preached? –Mt.-Mk.-Lk.-Jn

And life is all in vain –1Co.15:12


In Christ man must be Spirit filled –Ro.8:9

Receive of Heaven’s Dew

Promised to purge, remove and build –Mt.3:12

Foundations sound and true –1Pe.2:5+1Co.3:10-15


For this! God needs to have His Way –1Th.5:16-24

Have faith for self to die –Mt.9:29

To serve, to fast, to graceful pray –Ac.13:2

Through Christ, God’s Door on high –Col.3:17


We all have need of Jesus’ Light –2Co.4:6

Through whom The Father draws –Jn.6:44+Jn.12:32

Obeying Him, we’ll climb the height –1Co.15:44

We’ll rise through Heaven’s Doors –1Th.4:16-28


The Holy Ghost gives eyes to see –1Co.2:10-12

He pours the truth like wine

This Gift of God so rich and free –Ac.1:4

Is yours my friend and mine –Joel.2:28


How empty is the heart of man?

How can he hope to live?

Rejecting yet Salvation’s plan

That Jesus died to give


So blind as fools they stumble round –Jn.12:40

Rebellion, running wild –1Ti.1:9-10

No ark of safety can be found –Ac.27:24

In which they’re reconciled –1Ti.1:19+2Co.5:18


We’re not to fool with Heaven’s Flame –Mt.25:7,30

Sinning by night or day –Pr.1:7+Eph.4:30

For then, the Dove seeing the shame –2Ch.16:9

May rise and fly away –Jdg.16:20…..

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.
