Before He Comes Again....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

† † Before He Comes Again....

In righteousness I take delight

I marvel at Godís hand

Exchanging rags for robes of white

Iím blessed to understand

But who can comprehend Christís love

Or figure out Godís plan

However much I seek above

I see but as a man

Even the church is filled with awe

Although sheís Jesusí bride

Godís opened wide Salvationís Door

But few venture inside

They leave it to the few who preach

Theyíll sing in church their song

But when The Truth a soul will reach

They feel thereís something wrong

The church should seek Godís deeper things

She needs to dig her well

Evangelise what Heaven brings

To save the lost from hell

Why else is man at war with God?

Why does he break The Rules?

Why are His servants seen as odd?

And oft religious fools

The world sees Christ through human eyes

Salvation darkly veiled

Still believing the devilís lies

As though the church has failed

For righteousness the church must yearn

Obedience need to reign

Godís Fire within must truly burn

Before He comes again.....

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.
