God's Rose

 

"When will these battles cease O Lord
When will our troubles end?
When will our neighbours drop the sword?
And learn to live as friend"

“When honey in the desert flows
When Jacob's fields bear fruit
When time reveals The Sharon Rose
Life's Tree and David's Root


“How great will be the victory
When soil replaces sand
When Isaac's fig and olive tree
Garnish The Promised Land

When arms when hands reach out in love
Opposing souls unite
Israel's praise will rise above
When hatred takes its flight

Hosannas causing hearts to glow
Saluting Heaven's King 
Countless will hear countless will know
Countless God's praise will sing

God’s Truth will be taught in Zion
The blindest eyes will see
The Spirit of Judah's Lion
Will set God's chosen free

The Sun will rise on Israel
When night has finally past
When discord from the pit of hell
Closes its gates at last

The King of Kings will come to stay
Reigning  His Promised Land
Gentile and Jew will walk that day
Together hand in hand.....”

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.
