Between Two Fires.....

     Between Two Fires.....

Wisdom reveals the reason why

This life may cause much pain

Yet in the rainbows in the sky

The remedy’s made plain


When God made man He gave us laws

One all the world should know

That disobedience opened doors

No sinful man can go


Most fear no God or judgement day

A few seek truth on high

But fire to both will come some day

Through which to live or die


Fire will totally burn the earth

This world will cease to be

Fire will lead to second birth

In those who God will see


Fire will seek each soul in turn

Regardless of their views

But which will stand and which will burn

Remains for each to choose


From all the earth there’s no one free

However much we doubt

God’s Fire will come for all to see

From which there’s no way out


No force can make God’s Fire retreat

No flesh can dowse The Flame

But Fire for saints at Jesus’ feet

Will only burn one’s shame


But those who die still God astray

Will meet a gruesome fate

Just like the flood in Noah’s day

The cry will be “Too late”.....

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.
