Rachel's Promise


From east to west from north to south

Twixt Heaven and gates of hell

One day The Lord will smite by mouth

The foes of Israel


Is God like man that He should lie?

When raising high His hand

Countless will fail crumble and die

When Jacob takes his stand


God’s promises will never fail

His guarantees remain

In the midst of Megiddo Vale

Devils will fight in vain


Thinking to sing their victory song

Great spoils of war to find

The devil’s led so many wrong

Deceit has made them blind


Though for a while shadows may drift

May roam throughout the night

But Israel’s clouds will finally lift

When Truth’s revealed by Light


When eyes behold Salvation’s real

When heads shake side to side

The dogs who would swallow Jezreel

Will find no place to hide


From hateful head to hateful tail

The Truth will rip apart

Till peace eluding Israel

Ignites each ice-cold heart


Great joy will flow through every street

No face will wear a frown

When Rachel at her Saviour’s feet

Puts on her promised crown…..

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.
