Man Yet God

Man Yet God

 

In Truth God came as man to earth

Choosing from Heaven’s throne

A virgin maid through which He’d birth

The Son He’d call His own

 

The Lord revealed His master plan

His secret veiled so long

Although Lord God He lived as man

Singing life’s righteous song

 

He came, to show The Way to live

He came man’s soul to free

As Heaven’s Word He died to give

The Truth about the tree

 

As man! The Lord bore so much pain

Upon that dreadful cross

Many believe His death in vain

Who fail and suffer loss

 

As Lamb God spoke of hell and fire

The end of sin and shame

Where hate, where pride, where self desire

Will burn and curse His name

 

Christ warned of this and so much more

When Noah’s days return

To life and love He’ll close the door

On those condemned to burn

 

The Truth is here the time is now

Believe and understand

Only who’s knees to Christ now bow

Will see The Promised Land

 

But as before, remains today

Speaking of love and wrath

People just turn and walk away

Down hell’s wide selfish path.....

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.
