Turn the Tables

          Turn the Tables

Not few may say, “The Lord is mine

Eternal life’s my goal

We go to church, take bread and wine

Through Jesus’ blood we’re whole”


Though rotting filth, we feel inside

Demonic sources swell

We yet deny we’re Satan’s bride

Who’ll walk with him to hell


While most believe salvation’s ours

In Christ we’re flying high

Living deceived in ivory towers

Until the day we die


The Lord detests our lives this way

He wants us break hell’s chain

He hates it when we children stray

And wants us back again


But only with our hearts contrite!

Repenting wayward sin

Earnestly seeking Truth & Light

Striving Christ to win


Who’ll seek Jesus as Lord and King?

Accept Him as our God

Submit true love when praise we sing

Beneath His chastening Rod


Allow no treasure in between

Embrace His righteous scourge

Permit His Light our house to clean

His Holy Flame to purge


Allow Him turn hell’s table now!

Renounce our life of shame

As Jesus’ servants freely bow

Receive His brand new name.....

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.
