God Will Do a New Thing.

   God Will do a New Thing.

Some go to church a song to sing

Some sleep within the fold

But God will do a brand new thing

The bible’s not foretold


Then arms will rise, mouths open wide

Refusal will be heard

“We’ll only do what’s long been tried

What’s written in the word”


God’s Spirit shares His point of view

The word can slay man dead

But Jesus comes with life anew

To whom The Truth has led


For God reveals His plan to us

To man He’ll share His Word

Yet many churches make a fuss

And say The Truth’s absurd


Inside, they’re stagnant, weighted down

Burdened, with laws of man

Traditions survive to wear a crown

That turns from Jesus’ plan


To these! Christ’s only in the book

He’s not alive today

Why don’t they come and take a look

What God has yet to say?


For those who sit at Jesus’ feet

Who Heaven’s Truth would learn

The Lord makes these His choicest wheat

But chaff He’ll surely burn


The time has come to walk God’s Way

With humble eyes to see

Something new, may come today

To set the captive 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.
