God's Lamp within.....

† † † † † God's Lamp Within.....

ďThe wayward man, must understand

The truth of Christ, is real

The answer found in Jesusí hand

Loveís eager to reveal

Through Adamís sin, the earth God cursed

Defiance made us weak

To eat by sweat, always to thirst

Until Godís grace we seek

Till heads have bowed, till knees have bent

Till man repents of sin

Till hearts receive, whom Heavenís sent

Till Truth; judges within

Godís Lamp, to light the darkest night

To lead the blind to see

To give the naked, robes of white

And set the captive free

From in the bowels, lifeís Flame will rise

Upon manís flesh, Heíll reign

Purging out lust, demonic lies

Until oneís born again

Whoíll enter though The Fatherís Door

Through Christ Godís Lamb & Son

Giving true life, giving much more

When Heavenís will is done

But Satan prowls, in great disguise

To rob to cheat to kill

But Christ as Lord will open eyes

Of those on Zion hill

Walk straight Godís child, the road of life

Take heed, your Lordís decree

Remember though, Lotís foolish wife

Once Christ has set you freeĒ.....

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.
