Who Is this Jesus?

Who Is this Jesus?

 

Who’s this Jesus, men speak about?

Was He God’s Son and heir?

Did He arise to end man’s doubt?

Eternal life to share

 

Is He whom Jews are waiting for?

The Christ, The Living Lord

Is He The Key to Heaven’s Door?

Man’s hope and great reward

 

Is He a myth or fairy tale?

Some legend from afar

Is He The One that cannot fail?

Is He The Morning Star

 

Conflicts and wars have long been fought

Not few in hope, would die

Many have heard Jesus’ report

Yet still we wonder why

 

Life’s quest, answer, life’s true reply

Life’s source life’s flowing stream

Who lived to live for death to die

Through righteousness supreme

 

To Him we live we love we pray

Acquainted with sorrow

Placing our hope in Him today

Guarantees tomorrow

 

The day for which our knees now bend

Heaven to be our goal

On Christ alone we should depend

Pledging our precious soul

 

Healing will come, hearing and sight

The fruit of sharing love

Upon a cloud, adorned in white

We’ll rise with Heaven’s Dove.....

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.
