He'll Set the World on Fire

    He'll set the World on Fire

Who hears the heart and soul of man?

Who sees what each contains

Who knows what ways in life we plan?

What time for us remains?

 

Who hears an autumn leaf’s descent?

Each snowflake’s sad demise

Intricate thoughts when men repent

The sound of children’s sighs

 

Repentance births from deep within

Suckling truthful breast

Nurtured to turn away from sin

That Satan sends as guest

 

Where spiritual eyes, truth behold

Where wisdom may abide

Knowledge, developed many fold

Can feed lost sheep outside

 

The living God had this in mind

Sending His Light to earth

When Jesus opened eyes once blind

To give us second birth

 

A second birth to change our ways

Make God our prime desire

To love each other all our days

Flooding our hearts with fire

 

For God will purge His threshing floor

He’ll separate the wheat

He’s opened wide salvation’s door

To life’s eternal suite

 

To mansions yet no eye has seen

To treasures none can buy

Gratis to Jesus’ chosen queen

He calls to reign on high..…

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.
