House of Lies.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

         House Of Lies.....  

No house of lies for long will stand

However wide or tall

Foundations built on verbal sand

Will surely one day fall


However sweet deceit we try

Excuses stumble lame

God’s Son won’t stand for any lie

While Truth’s His middle name


Deceit will always end in strife

If now it fails to kneel

For Christ The Way The Truth & Life

Will all one day reveal


Disguised behind a charming sound

Amidst the sweetest tune

A house not built on solid ground

Will surely come to ruin


However high however deep

Regardless where we hide  

The seed we’ve sown we’ll also reap

Beyond the great divide


Pretending to be shining white

Flaunting a fancy name

Concealed within a mask of light

We’ll fall and feed the flame


Condemned with shame to endless fire

Liars to endless pain

Unless God’s grace we now acquire

Repent and start again


Bid Christ God’s Lamb to intervene

Confess each crimson flaw

Allow His blood all rooms to clean

And shut the devil’s door..…

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.
