War Is on

War Is on


Believe or not a war is on

Greater than ever known

Fighting, fighting till Love has won

And Christ’s on every throne


Yet here we sit twiddling thumbs

While devils laugh and gloat

Until they rise until they come

To slit each silent throat


Make no mistake! The bible’s true

God’s word will surely stand

They’ll slaughter Christian slaughter Jew

And seek to rule the land


They’re here, there, on streets, at work

Neighbours yet meek and mild

Subtly slyly like beasts they lurk

Watching us reconciled


Today next week next month next year

One day we’ll surely see

Outrageous horrors will occur

On those The Lamb set free


From east to west and north to south

With sword they’ll surely rise

The dragon lurks with open mouth

To pick us off like flies


But He who’s great righteous and just

Will come will speak and kill

Turning His enemies into dust

Till all is peaceful still


Believe or not! These things will be

God’s Christ will vanquish shame

So if by grace you’ve eyes to see

Call now! On Jesus’ name…..

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.
