A Place Prepared (1)


 Long now has gone the meeting tent                    Ex.40:2

God’s house adored with pride                             Mk.13:1

When Jesus died, the curtain rent                         Ex.26:33

So man can walk inside                                       Mt.27:51


Without the Lord, it had to fail                            Mk.13:2

Within! He’d nought to say                                 Lk.19:46

Now on a wall they stand and wail

As we can see today


Christ said, one day these things would be     2Ch.7:21+Mt.24:2

In time they came to pass

One single wall remains to see

The rest; were crushed like glass


Two thousand years have come and gone

Still stones lie where they fell

What should man learn from what was done?

What will the future tell?


A greater thing now God will do                       Jn.1:50

With man of flesh and bone                              1Cor.15:51

He said He’d build from me and you

A house of living stone                                     1Pe.2:5


God’s house exceeds all man can see

She lives; she thrives in love

She serves in truth all Christ set free

Prepared for life above                                      Mal.3:3


Through faith she’s true, God’s great delight

She’s Christ; serving on earth

Displaying grace, God’s wondrous might

His door to second birth


How great the church, where Christ is guide

How great the crown she’ll wear

How great when dressed as Jesus’ bride

She’ll join Him in the air.....

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.
