But God Is Love!


A life of sin is all too short

When comes the great surprise

When God receives life’s true report

But cannot close His eyes


“But God is love” so oft we cry

“His love is here to stay

It’s not God’s will for us to die

No matter what you say”


Yes God is Love, and loves to give

Eternal life to all

But only those in Christ; will live

Heeding Salvation’s call


We just can’t fool with God above

Thinking we won’t be burnt

God is Fire; as well as love

This lesson must be learned


In truth we come, but oft return

To where we were before

Although we’ve heard one day we’ll burn

Once God has closed death’s door                Gen.7:16


Most still believe God’s not that cruel         Gen.7:21

To make a place like hell                              Rev.20:14-15

But Satan’s out to cheat and fool                 1Pe.5:8

And that means you; as well


So take good care of how you live

Learn now! The Lord to fear

Not every sin will God forgive                    Mt.12:31

The bible says quite clear                            1Jn.5:16


Yes God is love, yet God is not        

A God to disobey

Remember well the wife of Lot                  Gen.19:26

The price she had to pay.....

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.
