Where Will You Spend Eternity?....

Spend Eternity?Where Will You

An average life is awfully brief

But three score years and ten

Yet what takes place when like a thief?

Godís Son returns again?

Ever give thought to where youíre bound?

What happens when we die?

Is truly hell beneath the ground?

Is Heaven in the sky?

Better be safe and take a look

Place all the facts in view

Letís scrutinize Godís written book

Letís see if Christ is true

The bible says, that man was first

To live and never die

But disobedience saw earth cursed

And death was born from high

Sinless; mankind must run the race

Must take from death lifeís crown

God says quite plain that by His grace

He sent Christ Jesus down

Its true mankind to death was cursed

Its here for all to see

But through Godís Lamb itís all reversed

Through faith in Christ weíre free

Set free to serve our Lord and King

With joy with peace and love

Weíre free to let lifeís song take wing

To Heavenís throne above

Through Jesusí blood thereís second birth

The bible tells us well

But those who doubt Godís Word on earth

Will burn in endless hellÖ..

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.
