Knowing the Truth
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

� � � Knowing the Truth

Responsible are those who know

Who yet conceal the light

Who know the way that man should go

Yet fail to fight the fight

There�s still so much of God to see

However high we soar

Who in the Church is truly free?

Who is above the law?

Truly content, is none on earth

However much we try

Even the few with second birth

Are often seen to cry

Seeking God�s face in constant prayer

Telling each other lies

We gnash our teeth we bite and tear

Behind our church disguise

Content from birth in doing nought

Allowing death walk by

Knowing of Heaven�s true report

Knowing God�s children die

We watch as neighbours fall and fail

While brothers break the law

Thinking at death we�ll spin some tale

And walk through Heaven�s door

Blind to the facts that God would bring

Were deaf what Christ would tell

Like fools we soar on eagles� wing

Upon the wind to hell

Wake up; and see the devil�s crime

Arise from Satan�s bed

Wake up and see it�s now high time

To raise the walking dead.....

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.
