The Christian Channels


We’ve Christian programs on the box

Preaching of death’s escape

But few speak out where Jesus rocks

God’s children into shape


Many may share their viewpoint well

Speaking their hearts desire

But not to masses bound for hell

Countless who’ll burn in fire


Politically though not correct

Though socially despised

We need to stand as God’s elect

Until this world’s baptized


Fire! Must burn in sinful hearts  

Must cleanse each filthy soul

But only facts! The Truth imparts

Will make His children whole


Take off the gloves unsheathe God’s Sword

Take up the faithful shield

Reveal who’s God, who’s truly Lord

And cause the world to yield


Preach free the bible front to back

Count not your personal cost

Truly of God you’ll never lack

Nor fail one sheep yet lost


In spirit must The Truth be said

By faith man must receive

For this alone will raise the dead

And lead them to believe


We can’t be fools on world TV

Nor play the worldly clown

Let’s preach The Way where billions see

The devil’s throne pulled down…..

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.
