There's No Other Way (1)

Weíre in the ark, redeemed by grace

Upon The Rock weíll hide

Yet sin, can steal may bar the place

Reserved for Jesusí bride

Sheltered from lifeís infernal blast

Encompassed by The Flame

We canít remain as in the past

Resuming lives of shame

The Word of God is deep and true

It speaks to us each day

But only when we seek to do

What Jesus has to say?

Who eat of Christ, in time will feel

Lifeís substance flow within

Itís then The Lord becomes more real

Convicting souls of sin

Godís Flame burns deep within the heart

His Spirit lifts the veil

His judgement; in the church will start

That none in Christ should fail

Godís Holy Ghost will Truth unfold

Reveal Godís will inside

Upon the roof it may be told

If filth we try to hide

If from the past we seek to part

If life weíd start anew

We need! Godís Spirit in our heart

His Flame to purge us too

New birth, is not an instant thing

Through grace we learn to see

Till selfishness has taken wing

From hell, weíre never free.....

Weíre in the ark, redeemed by grace

Upon The Rock weíll hide

Yet sin, can steal may bar the place

Reserved for Jesusí bride

Sheltered from lifeís infernal blast

Encompassed by The Flame

We canít remain as in the past

Resuming lives of shame

The Word of God is deep and true

It speaks to us each day

But only when we seek to do

What Jesus has to say?

Who eat of Christ, in time will feel

Lifeís substance flow within

Itís then The Lord becomes more real

Convicting souls of sin

Godís Flame burns deep within the heart

His Spirit lifts the veil

His judgement; in the church will start

That none in Christ should fail

Godís Holy Ghost will Truth unfold

Reveal Godís will inside

Upon the roof it may be told

If filth we try to hide

If from the past we seek to part

If life weíd start anew

We need! Godís Spirit in our heart

His Flame to purge us too

New birth, is not an instant thing

Through grace we learn to see

Till selfishness has taken wing

From hell, weíre never free.....

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.
