Return to the Deep

       Return to the Deep

How shallow are the thoughts of man?

How evil grow his deeds?

What has The Lord reserved in plan?

What future has the weeds?


How simple life has now become

Church sermons grow so weak

Has God struck current prophets dumb?

Is truth too good to speak?


Through history, truth was plain to see

The fear of God was great

His children kept each royal decree

Dreading a burning fate


We must return God’s word to preach

Return those gone astray

Return to stand, to preach and teach

The values of His Way


Though some may cry, and call alarm

Others may shrug and doubt –Jer.8:11

Saying the truth can cause such harm

Can keep God’s children out!


Yet in the past, when truth was taught –Heb.12:5-8

When Heaven’s will was done

When plain God’s word to man was brought

Did then! His children run?


But Satan seeks to keep man down

Control the things we do

He’d rob the bride of life and crown

He’d kill the chosen few


We need to seize the devil’s rod –Mt.16:19

Remove him from the fold –Jas.4:7

Return to just The Way of God –Mt.22:27-40

And do “ALL” Jesus told…..

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.
