Both Good & Evil Rise (2).....

      Both Good & Evil Rise (2).....

For few, the end is not all doom

The truth’s no devil’s knife

The grave’s but a temporary womb

A door to endless life


God gives the choice how this can start

Where life may now begin

For those with Jesus in their heart

Who set them free of sin


We’ll see the face of Christ the King

The holes in hands and feet

We’ll hear the praises angels sing

When Jesus’ bride they greet


But oh the day of sad surprise

When death reveals the news

When hell resounds with painful cries

From those who Christ refuse


Yet fools abide by Satan’s rule

Whatever scriptures tell

They say, “No God would be so cruel

To make a place like hell


There is for man no judgement day

That life is not a test

No debt in hell, man need repay

Just death; and endless rest”


Make no mistake, the bible’s true

Life’s trials are not in vain

From God will all receive their due

Both dead and born again


For those in chains and all the free

For those at Heaven’s gates

For those who’s heart by grace can see

Eternity awaits…..

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.
