Godhead Discourse

         Godhead Discourse

From Heaven, The Lord devised a plan

Some details now we see

“Within our image, I’ll make a man

Who’ll live to worship me


Each word and deed, will be in sight

His every thought quite plain

I’ll form from man, a bride of light

Devoid of spot or stain


I’ve now set down my holy laws

Life’s rules to man; I’ll give

I’ll let them choose between two doors

Through which but one, they’ll live


Let death begin, through man’s first shame

Through disobedient deed

Let enter those who hate my name

Tread paths of thorn and weed


Restore to me through sinless blood

Through selfless life on earth

Through one, who lives the way he should

Through whom the bride will birth


For by my laws, no man will stand

By one; at least they’ll fall

Yet give them this; to understand

They’re free on us to call


I’ll hear; who pray, on bended knees

Who’ll seek who can’t be seen

Though one of us must die for these

To form a virgin queen”


So Jesus knew the need to die

He saw the dreadful tree

Ere Adam breathed!  Christ knew on high

He’d choose to set man free.....

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.
