What Are Your Thoughts.....

Most of the world is being deceived

Countless; since life began

Through all sort of drivel, souls have believed

Eternity’s not for man

 

So few read the bible now

Less, seek The Lord or pray

Not knowing to whom or what to bow

From youth to old and grey

 

Political correctness rules

Ignorance reigns supreme

Religion’s offered between two stools

Salvation’s just a dream

 

Did Jesus choose to die for this!

This mess, of foul mankind

Rescue so few from hell’s abyss

God’s Truth’s not hard to find

 

Look in the Bible's every page

Read from front to rear

Six thousand years, through every age

Salvation’s facts appear

 

Jesus was in the beginning

God’s Word before the start

As Christ, to accomplish winning

Death had to play its part

 

Two thousand years, deaf, blind, as fools

By winds of doctrines tossed

Without God’s will, without Life’s rules

This world’s confused and lost

 

Come to The Farther, God’s Lamb, God’s Son

Come to Life’s Fount and drink

See in the end, when victory’s won

What! My friend, will you think.....?

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.
