               God's Just Reward.....1

Heaven reveals Salvation’s plan –1Co.2:10

When through God’s Lamb we pray –Jn.14:13-14

Declaring through the fall of man –Gen.3:1-24

There’ll be a judgement day –Heb.9:27


Man will account for every crime –Ro.6:23

Must settle every score –Mt.5:25-26

Ordained by God, are place and time –Ro.9:15

To execute His law –1Co.2:9


God’s righteous judgement’s crystal clear –Deut.28:58-68

Through penalties we pay –Jdg.16:21

A few receive right now and here –1Pe.4:17

Others; the youngest day –Rev.20:15


While trials exist to test a child –Job.23:10

To bless to suffer strife –Ac.12:19-23

That sinners may be reconciled –Deut.8:1-5

And raised to endless life –2Co.5:11-21


Yet all rewards await a deed

Require a certain key

According to one’s planted seed

A door will open free


Automatic; is God’s reward –Deut.28:1-14

His judgement’s always sure –Deut.28:15-68

For some its life, for some the sword –Jn.3:36

Depending on the door .Eze.7:3


The door to life by righteous deed –Jn.14:6

Or death by wanton sin –Pr.16:25

According to the life one’s led

Which door one’s entered in


So every deed evokes a key –Deut.30:19

Beckons to walk inside –Heb.8:11

The one to whom we bow our knee –Eph.4:12

One’s heart will open wide –Eph.4:27…..PTO…..

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.
