Mister Worldly Wise
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† † †Mister Worldly Wise

God says Heíll open childrenís eyes

Knowledge, by grace would grow

But still for some, it fails to rise

Because they think to know

Though scholars leave our finest schools

Diplomas proud in hand

With Darwinís theory cultured fools

Fail God to understand

On radio is heard their voice

We see them on T.V

Clearly Godís Way is not their choice

The Truth they fail to see

Their criticismís everywhere

With necks as stiff as iron

God ignorant, their passion share

Serving satanic wine

Demonic poison vast they spread

Like Pharisees before

Though worldly wise, theyíre walking dead

Failing to find Lifeís Door

Blind to The Lamb, Godís Christ Godís Son

Denying Heavenís Light

Within the web the devilís spun

Robbed of spiritual sight

They speak long words with narrow mind

No Truth of God within

If Christ in life they fail to find

Theyíll perish in their sin

Not always is oneís knowledge right

Nor wisdom of the earth

Through Christ alone, comes perfect sight

That dawns with second birth. ....†

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.
