Will You Die?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

        Will you die?

Although life’s breath will one day cease

Man’s tent will one day fall                        2Pe.1:13-14

The bible says they’ll rise in peace

Who’ve answered Jesus’ call                      1Th.4:16-17

 

God’s chosen few will never die

Their tent won’t see decay

Beneath the earth they’ll never lie

Whatever fools may say

 

Christ chose to die that man should live

That all; receive true light

By grace! His promise God will give

Through faith; and not by sight

 

Faith is a price we need to pay

Trusting Jesus alone

God reconciles each child one day

Who’ll call His Son their own

 

In death, what treasures will remain?

From life what fruit will be?

Where only man when born again

Receive God’s promise free

 

Though fools in vain will try to hide

They’ll beg one day to die

They’ve scorned refused to come inside

Too late!” will be the cry

 

Who’ll give Jesus their life on earth

Repent each sinful flaw

The Lord will give a second birth

And open wide life’s door

 

Life’s promised free! The price is paid

Through Christ who reigns above

No man need die nor be afraid

So come to Christ and love.....

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.
