The Tempter's Demise (2).....

† †The Tempter's Demise (2).....

Who seeks Heaven through Christ Godís Son?

Who in The Truth walk sure?

Who seek The Fatherís will is done

Will Satanís ploys endure

The Lamb of God was tempted too

Yet scripture stood Him by

Today He guides the chosen few

Who live to live on high

Will live beyond temptations cries

Above the devilsí screams

Will live when all about him dies

Beyond oneís wildest dreams

Savouring life as Heaven planned

Basking in Jesusí light

Walking in love The Promised Land

In royal robes of white

But first to flee the jaws of hell

Manís selfish flesh must die

Through drinking from Salvationís Well

By grace of Christ on high

The strength of God is ours to call

When Christ is Lord and King

When at His feet we humbly fall

And to His glory sing

Temptation loses fast its hold

Hellís snares of steel corrode

When on our heads lifeís crown of gold

Is from The Lord bestowed

Such strength is in Godís mighty Word

Such cloutís unleashed through prayer

Such freedom when Salvationís heard

Christ Jesus died to shareÖ..P.T.OÖ..

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.
