United We Stand

 

We come to Jesus as a child

Unkempt with hearts impure

But Christ will have His chosen bride

Faithful and mature

 

So thus! God gives His Living Flame

To melt one’s heart of stone

To burn the filth one’s sin and shame

To raise for Him His own

 

Best hinder not The Spirit’s flow

In any given place

Allow your soul through Heaven’s Glow

To unify with grace

 

God’s Flame may cause great change in you

Change someone at your side

For services both old and new

Supporting Jesus’ bride

 

Be graceful in the gifts you share

Talents use wise with love

Aiding the church on earth prepare

For endless life above

 

In unity, through selfless chores

Serving God’s Lamb & Son

Opening, locking, diverse doors

Forming the church as one

 

Some to be prophets some to preach

Apostles near and far

Servants serving helping to teach

Through Heaven’s Morning Star

 

In spirit and in Truth unite

Stand firm in Christ The Lord

Fighting as one, the righteous fight

With God’s all righteous Sword…..

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.
