Today's Money Changers.....

† † †Today's Money Changers.....

Weíve moneychangers in Godís house

A stench to God on high

Upon the flesh just like a louse

Theyíll suck Godís children dry

For gain, some sell their personal view

Like wolves theyíll seek their prey

Satanís servants disguised in queue

Just like in Jesusí day

So loud we hear their pious cries

Dressed in purple and red

Instead of doves theyíll sell white lies

This clan of walking dead

Self-righteousness is commonplace

Traditions by the score

This scourge upon the human race

Grows daily more and more

Letís overturn some tables too

End manís religious show

Drive out of church the devilís zoo

Let living Water flow

Refuse the devilís charming wares

Decline his luring freight

Reject his traps hellís hidden snares

Beware of tempting bait

Purchase instead what canít be sold

Letís open eyes still blind

Letís buy from Jesusí purest gold

Silver perfect refined

Letís buy today what God would sell

Silence the devilís whore

Seek Jesusí face this side of hell

Letís enter Heavenís DoorÖ..

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.
