      Not by Knowledge

Do not believe in all you hear

Let no one rob your goal

But hHHHHHHHJHeed The Word and learn to fear

Who’ll save or slay man’s soul


Knowledge; won’t see you through my door

However much received

But who alone obey my law

Who’ve Jesus Christ believed


Some love; to frequent church each week

Yet fail to understand

They fail The Holy Ghost to seek

The Passport, to my Land


They love to hear, their God is love

But shun; my Holy Flame

Like fools failing my door above

They’ll die festooned in shame


They call me Lord, yet go their Way

Eating of Satan’s bread

I hear their secret thoughts each day

And know they’re walking dead


Do not despise, my chastening rod

No servant that I send

Teaching truth of an awesome God

To whom man’s knee must bend


I am The Lord, I never lie

Walk righteously my path

Living my way you’ll never die

When others; reap my wrath


Although I’m love, I’m Fire too

As demons know too well

Best heed The Truth I speak to you

And stay away from hell.....

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.
