The Groom Awaits

The Groom Awaits

 

Before this world can end her days

Within the next can start

Her children need to end their ways

And cleanse her shameful heart

 

Doubt is the fruit of Satan’s weed

And lies his flower bed

Yet faith restored by Heaven’s Seed

Can raise the walking dead

 

The virtue gained by Jesus’ bride

Righteousness; will pursue

And through The Flame that burns inside

Can stand forever true

 

True love’s the crown of Jesus’ queen

Bestowed with grace above

By faith she hopes of that unseen

Through Christ’s unfailing love

 

The Lamb that died that she might live

The Christ eternal Lord

Through faith in Him and what He’ll give

True life will be restored

 

True love’s a pearl festooned in gold                                                                                                

Hope is a precious jewel

While faith not bought nor ever sold

Will end the devil’s rule

 

The Groom Himself attends her hair

Washing in Heaven’s wine

With golden comb and loving care

With fragrant oils divine

 

With crown of glory made perfect

With ring and robe aglow

The living Christ with faith’s elect

Will leave the world below.....

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.
