When Seas and Oceans Dry

Godís word is here to read at will

Revealing truth so plain

The wrath that once was sent to kill

Will soon return again

Though countless hear Salvationís call

Most turn their heads instead

But when the stars from Heaven fall

Theyíll wish that they were dead

Theyíll seek to hide in nook and crack

Refuse to kneel and pray

On these God too will turn His back

Just as in Noahís day

Backsliders still who wonít return

Hear Heavenís word unfold

Make no mistake you too will burn

When neither hot nor cold

That day will see the mountains low

The seas and oceans dry

When man finds nowhere else to go

Heíll look for God on high

Too late! Too late! God wonít relent

The Lord wonít change His mind

But when the wrath of God is sent

Oneís death will no-one find

How dreadful then, that day will be

When Jesus calls His own

When devils from the pit are free

When manís left all alone

Godís Holy Ghost, will long have gone

Hellís loose in every land

Seek life today through Christ Godís Son

While still The Lordís at hand..Ö

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.
