The Earth Is Cursed
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

           The Earth is Cursed

The earth is cursed through sin and shame –Gen.3:17

Through Adam and his wife

To take the curse Christ Jesus came

To plant the soil with life


From what we eat we now become

Of righteousness or sin –Gen.3:18

Heaven or hell the smallest crumb –Jn.6:25-66

Can change one’s heart within


From bread alone no one can live

Nor flee from death or ill

But through Christ’s blood, the fare He’ll give

To life will eat their fill Jn.6:68


To drink from Christ The Master’s cup

Of Holy Flesh receive

Be in God’s presence lifted up

And by His grace believe


From Heaven’s Word our Spirits thrive

Prosper and understand –Lk.24:45

From inside out we come alive

To bloom in Jesus’ hand –Jn.4:13-14


Who’s faith is in God’s living Son

Who’ve sought God’s Lamb on high

Who’ll stand until life’s war is won

Will live to never die


As Jesus’ blood the soil caressed –Lk.22:44

Engaged suffering earth

Through selfless love Heavenly blessed

Grace leads to second birth


Spiritual birth of Truth and Light

Transforming deep inside

Forever to live in robes of white

Where darkness can’t reside.....

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.
