Saul's Disobedience

       Saul's Disobedience

“The world, looks to the church mid-stream

Without Salvation’s dove

She’s quite content to hold the dream

Their God’s a God of love


You call me Lord yet disobey!

Content in running wild

Consider though the judgement day

What happens then my child?


You disobey my Royal decree

Anticipating grace

Consuming fire is all you’ll see

And not my smiling face


Destroy them all, king Saul I told

Spare none within the land

Return with nought unto the fold

Make sure you understand


That Saul was king I so repent

I spoke from high above

His kingdom then I duly rent

And gave the one I love


Yet I myself anointed Saul

No man ought had to say

But disobedience brought his fall

That still persists today


The Lord your God is no one’s clown

No puppet on a string

No man can take nor put me down

As though a worthless thing


If next you hear your Lord’s command

Heed well the words I say

If you would live as I have planned

You must my child, 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.
