Snare or No Snare.....

     Snare or no Snare.....

Tempting wily with lustful charms

Satanic ways are snared

While safety of God’s saving arms

Seems hopelessly impaired


But is this not the devil’s aim?

A source of Satan’s pride

To furnish doubt in Jesus’ name

And whom we have inside


Is this to boost the devil’s boast

To blight the few set free

Blaspheme The promised Holy Ghost

To fail the truth to see


Greater is He that dwells inside

Than Satan and his horde

The power of Jesus’ chosen bride

No devil can afford


He failed to kill Salvation’s Seed

So now the bride he tries

Yet day and night he would impede

If were she not born wise


But wise we are through Christ our Lord

Through faith we place on high

With helmet, belt and trusted sword

We’ll every foe defy


Weather we die weather we live

On God we can depend

If yet our lives we need to give

We die but see no end


We’d die because of unseen hope

Because of faith received

Because we know we’ll always cope

Through whom we have believed.....

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.
