Are You Born-Again.?.

are You Born-Again?


There’re dangerous people out there

Who in God’s name maintain

Those receiving Christ in prayer

Are also born again


They’re save, they’re sound, they’re Heaven bound

Partaking wine and bread

They’ve built their House on solid ground

Although they’re walking dead


They’ve never been in church before

But weddings or someone dies

No fear of God to break the law

Or telling bare-faced lies


They’ve still to read the bible yet

Saying Jesus is Lord

But fail to have their hair get wet

And stand in one accord


One; with the bride of Heaven’s King

By grace made free and new

Able with crown beneath God’s wing

To stand The Saviour true


One’s born-again when knowing Christ

God’s Son of virgin birth

Knowing as Lamb, God sacrificed

To free and cleanse the earth


One’s born-again when reconciled

Without a heart of stone

When spiritual standing a child

The Father calls His own


A privilege; too few can boast

An honour, few can claim

Living with God, The Holy Ghost

Serving in 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.
