No Liar (1)

No Liar (1)


Who’d live a lie, will God oppose

Will be the devil’s tool

The Lord is truth from head to toes

And God is no one’s fool


But still Satan would plant his seed

In those whom God will save

In darkness growing sinful weed

Pulling towards the grave


Clad a la mode, in Sunday best

With bible fat and sleek

Some think from God, a lie finds rest

In churches week by week


For even there poison is spread

Deception’s ever near

What foolishness pollutes the head?

Robbing of Godly fear?


Though camouflaged in Satan’s shroud

Behind their church disguise

Covert liars to God are loud

Seen through His righteous eyes


Beware you branches of The Vine

Lying to Jesus’ face

Brazened partaking bread and wine

In Christ could lose your place


No lie can dwell on hallowed ground

Significant or slight

In hell the speaker could be found

When Truth sends forth The Light


Eternally they’ll rue their shame

Constant their bed of thorns

Perpetual burns damnation’s flame

Where no repentance dawns.....

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.
