Sentenced to Death

† † † †Sentenced to Death

We read Godís word and know itís true

We eat and drink our fill

Through faith in Christ, weíre born anew

While Satanís out to kill

Religious peoples live in fear

They live the life of Cain

Censoring much of what they hear

And so the truth, restrain

Sentence of death is common use

For those that Christ believe

Thereís no exceptionís no excuse

For those that Christ receive

But what if man could wander free

Could choose as others do

The world would surely come to see

That Heavenís Lamb is true

As yet; our prayers seem most in vain

To melt a calloused heart

Where still the mind not free to reign

And living Truth apart

Biblical truth in black and white

Remains still widely banned

Yet Jesusí Kingdomís not in sight

But in oneís heart as planned

Still lands are plagued and suffer drought

Denying Jesusí name

Afraid to ask what Christís about

And so they die in shame

Yet all in Christ are free to choose

Though fools will disagree

Weíve nothing in this world to lose

When on ďLifeís RockĒ we see..Ö

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.
