Hinder Not God's Prophet.....1

† † †Hinder Not God's Prophet.....1

How should The Lord converse today?

How should He warn a child?

How should He straighten those who stray?

And guide from running wild?

In many ways The Lord may speak

To rescue sheep from hell

Bring strength to comfort those found weak

Or punish who rebel?

God chooses man to sing lifeís song

As lamps to those who fail

Teaching the wayward right from wrong

To save from Satanís jail

Serving the bride Godís choicest meat

The best of Heavenís wine

Not always is the latter sweet

The former always fine

Yet who can judge lifeís righteous Lord?

Whoíll build and whoíll destroy?

Which child heíll bless, whoíll feel the sword?

Which vessel Heíll employ?

For who can know The Fatherís plan?

Which tool will be His choice?

What clout Heíll share with mortal man?

Whoíll heed The Masterís voice?

Evaluate, what servants say

Assess the fruit they bear

Even a child, may show The Way

The least, have much to share

Let God be judge who comes to give

Which lamp, Heíll stand as guide

Lets eat and drink, letís live to live

Helping to serve the bride.....PTOÖ..

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.
