         It's by One's Fruit..... 

The bible’s not designed to kill

God Word came down to save!

Though murder creeps in churches still

When some in discord rave


God sees the branches of the tree

The putrid crop of sin

While oh how sweet one’s fruit can be

When Jesus dwells within


Once grafted into David’s Root

When Christ has pruned one clean

We’ll bear The Gardener such ripe fruit

He’ll be so pleased to glean


When peace and joy are part of you

When love, your life can guide?

When patience, fellow man can view

God’s Flame burns bright inside


When true repentance song we sing

When love’s our planted seed

Salvation comes on eagle’s wing

To burn satanic weed


Then wholesome fruit to God we bear

Beginning to understand

There’ll be no need to nurse despair

Through faith in Jesus’ hand


Unlike the dogs that vomit crave

We’ll close to filth our eyes

When wayward flesh has met the grave

Once disobedience dies


Resplendent fruit To God we’ll give

Flourishing in The Vine

Eternally in Christ we’ll live

Drinking victory’s wine.....

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.
