Deliverance in Christ
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Deliverance in Christ


It’s not all true what others say

Nor wise what people tell

But dipping cups along The Way

Deep in Salvation’s Well


Deliverance comes when Christ we drink

When eating Heaven’s Word

Changing one’s heart, of how we think

When once we’ve truly heard


By love by grace we’ll see The Light

Christ’s death upon the tree

Darkness will quit, take swiftly flight

As Truth begins to free


Of death, of hell its pit of flame

Of man’s religious rules

Of gross deceit living in shame

Of thoughts of babbling fools


The world should view The True report

Be free of all that’s cursed

Make sure God’s Truth in schools is taught

To quench her Godless thirst


Rampant! The devil’s running wild

To him; she’ll bend her knee

Her children’s souls are so defiled

They’re far too blind to see


Her darkest age may yet prevail

Although The Truth’s at hand

Still tightly bound to flee from jail

She fails to understand


Only God’s Christ, God’s Lamb God’s Son

Can cause blind eyes to see

Cause wisdom in fools to be won

And ignorance to flee……..

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.
