Has God Died?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† † Has God Died?

Throughout the world great people fall

No kingdomís seen to cope

God doesnít seem to care at all

Or give mankind much hope

Where is the church of yesterday?

Why is there so much war?

Could it be God has gone away?

Or closed to man His door

Why does He choose from man to hide?

Why do we feel alone?

Could it be God Himself has died?

And left us on our own

Questions to God since time began

Accusers in file and throng

The devilís always roamed with man

Teaching his crafty song

But Satan sees the doors of hell

His followers understand

That Godís alive and all is well

In Jesusí caring hand

Hellís demons plan for manís defeat

For manís complete demise

Theyíre here to kill to lie to cheat

Make blind unwary eyes

The tongue; they seek to capture first

For mighty is The Word

Through which weíre blessed through which weíre cursed

Through which The Truth is heard

The Truth which seals their pending fate

The Truth that burns inside

The Truth that opens Heavenís gate

For Loveís eternal bride.....

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.
