Woe to Scoffers

Woe to Scoffersd


God’s not as most religions think

Though praying on their knees

They’ll stand they’ll speak their eyes will wink

In hope their flock to please


Their God is love and God is peace

However deep the sin

Religious lies just never cease

Gullible souls to win


Unknown; some play the devil’s fool

Speaking God’s name in vain

It’s one more ploy through Satan’s tools

To foil those born-again


Its God says this and God said that

Evoking Jesus’ name

They wipe their feet on Heaven’s mat

And find thereby no shame


But woe to those who do these things

Behind a church disguise

Destruction dawns on eagle wings

For blasphemy and lies


Scoffers will thrive in latter days

The antichrist will rise

With signs and wonders much amaze

Keep closed unwary eyes


Throughout the world he’ll spread hell’s germ

He’ll smile while doing good

Only the bride who stand Christ firm

Will live the way they should


Through storms, through wars, famine and pest

Many will feel the sword

But safe on top of Zion’s crest

The bride will greet her Lord.....

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.
