Get off the Devil's Train.....(2)
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† †Get off the Devil's Train.....(2)

Just like a deer in a snare

Or spiderís web, a fly

As fools still sinning everywhere

†Weíre trapped until we die

Unless we leave the devilís boat

Board ship from Satanís realm

Seek Heavenís help to stay afloat

With Jesus at the helm

Refuse to be in hellís employ

Turn to The King supreme

Letís fight in love for peace and joy

Beyond our wildest dream

Itís time to see the facts first hand

Through light Godís Way to see

To take account to understand

With whom to fight and flee

Get out of Satanís car my friend

Take firm in hand lifeís Wheel

No man can see whatís round the bend

Until to Christ we kneel

Through Jesusí blood through birth anew

Through grace in Jesus hand

We need to keep Godís Son in view

Towards The Promised Land

Arise forthwith from Satanís bed

Shake off the devilís chain

Consider Christ Godís Lamb instead

Who died to take manís pain

Get up and walk Godís righteous path

Take heart in Christ and thrive

In Jesusí care flee Heavenís wrath

And always stay alive.....

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.
