Who'd be a Millionaire?

Who'd Be a Millionaire?

 

As sure as God’s on Heaven’s throne

With Jesus at His side

So love will rid my heart of stone

Of that which fools would hide

 

We must escape while time’s at hand

While grace with truth’s still found

Take hold of that Heaven has planned

Climbing to higher ground

 

We need to quit our self made jail

Abandon Satan’s path

Knowing, with him we’ll surely fail

And face eternal wrath

 

Thanks be to God for wisdom’s song

For knowledge Truth and Light

Revealing consequence of wrong

The privileges of right

 

Be full of love whilst flying high

With joy wrapped tight in peace

When standing firm we’ll never die

Amidst The Lord’s increase

 

Though fools may scoff may slander still

Our Saviour’s name blaspheme

But in one’s heart His perfect will

Will always reign supreme

 

Best buy of Christ what none can sell

Receive with nought to pay

Prosper in Him steer from hell

To rise the youngest day

 

Who have The Truth The Life The Way

The Promise through The Tree

Will have in Him through whom we pray

Love’s endless guarantee……

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.
