Treasures to Buy.....

Treasures to Buy.....

Salvationís wine quenches and fills

Cleanses and make us new

While devils rob while Satan kills

And cheats the chosen few

Deceitís not worn upon Satanís sleeve

Devils conceal their lies

Through cunning stealth, fooled† lambs believe

The wolf in sheepís disguise

Hellís putrid fruit The Father hates

Trickery in the bride

No lie can enter Heavenís gates

Nor liar reign inside

Receive The Truth from God on High

Through Christ true wealth is bought

Salvationís fortune souls may buy

And yet it costs us nought

Purest silver to finest gold

Rare jewels Godís choicest fare

Wisdom knowledge treasures untold

Gratis to those who dare

Who dare to walk Salvationís path

Who dare through faith to stand

Who through belief, escape Godís wrath

Within their Saviourís hand

Yet poverty, persists abroad

The world canít get her fill

Like misers, Satanís wares we hoard

And scrutinize at will

We need to buy of Heavenís wealth

Put self unto the sword

Receive new life, eternal health

In service of The Lord.....

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.
