When Jesus' Bride

        When Jesus' Bride

The devil’s out to cheat and kill

To rob whom God will call

Deceiving them on Zion hill

In hope to cause their fall


God shares His secret flesh and bone

Christ’s bride, through birth anew

But truth is not for us alone

The world must know it too –Mt.28:19


We bow our heads in deep despair

We’ve heard Salvation’s cry

But still so few Heaven will share

Whilst lost and blind they die


We wander round like docile sheep

We play and act the fool

God’s saving grace but few may keep

Still breaking every rule


We say we’re saved, we’re Heaven bound

We’re clean in Christ set free

Yet with God’s Light we sit around

Though most the world can’t see


We know Christ died on Calvary cross

We know the reason why

Though through His blood we’re free of dross

We live the devil’s lie


God’s Seed must not be sown in vain

We need to stand and fight

So Christ God’s Lamb can come to reign

Where man receives his sight


When all the earth can see The Vine

When cynics have believed

And when as one; God’s the bride can shine

This goal will be achieved…..

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.
