Have Faith in Christ

Have Faith in Christ

 

This world revolves in darkness still

Made blind to Heaven’s door

The lion prowls to cheat to kill

And rob man’s ever more

 

But God would have His children live

Would see creation thrive

A sacrifice He planned to give

So death; man could survive

 

Abandoning His throne on high

Resolved God’s only Son

For sinful man Himself to die

That endless life be won

 

A living option free to all

To every soul on earth

To answer Heaven’s graceful call

To live through second birth

 

But still we play and act like fools

Rejecting grace and love

Disobeying God’s sacred rules

Paving The Way above

 

The facts are plain for all to see

The Truth is Heaven’s Word

Christ Jesus came to set us free

Acting on what we’ve heard

 

But Satan in a shadowed veil

Evil in shroud-like robe 

Persists to tempt cause souls to fail

As often tried with Job

 

But trust in God, have faith in Christ

Stand firm, walk in the light

Believe The Lamb God sacrificed

Has won life’s final fight.....

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.
