† † † † † † † † † † †TIME

Before timeís dawn and God earth made††††††† -Gen.1:1

Ending eternal night †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††-Gen.1:2

When darkness had on earth to fade †††††

When God spoke forth the light †††††††††††††††††††††-Gen.1:3

But with the light came time to earth †††††††††††††-Gen.1:5

The same that ages man †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††-Ps.90:4,10

For God had known before his birth

Manís sin would spoil the plan †††††††††††††††††††††††-Gen.3:6

Now crucial is this time to all

Like sand, life seems to flow ††††††††††††††††††††††††††-Isa.66:8

Within a trice, nations can fall

Or melt away like snow †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††-Isa.40:6

Godís image dwells within a frame ††††††††††††††-Gen.2:7

In modest forms of clay ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††-Gen.1:26

Made righteous through The Holy Flame †††††-Mt.3:12

Weíll see Godís face one day ††††††††††††††††††††††††-Rev.22:4

But until then, the flesh grows old ††††††††††††††††-Ps.103:5

Through sin, grows frail and sick† †††††††††††††††††-Deut.24:16

While time, manís spirit cannot hold †††††††††††††-Hos.13:14

It stays forever quick ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††-Mt.10:26

For things of God, can never age ††††††††††††††††††-Gen.3:22

Nor ever see decay †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††-Ro.8:21

To flesh alone, is time a cage †††††††††††††††††††††††-Ro.7:24

That Christ will free one day

Through Jesusí hand, the sky will fold ††††††††-Isa.34:4

Then time will be no more

The world of this must now be told †††††††††††††-Mt.28:19

Must seek Salvationís Door †††††††††††††††††††††††††-Jn.14:6

For Christ the Door, will set us free ††††††††††††-Ro.6:3-4

Will keep from sin and shame †††††††††††††††††††††-Ro.6:18

Then when this age has ceased to be†††††††† ††††1Co.3:13††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Weíll pass lifeís Judgement Flame.....

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.
