Many Will Come (1)

Play not the fool with Jesusí flock

Take care which seed you spread

Think twice before you start to mock

Or say, ďThe Lord has saidĒ

Manís time of grace grows ever short

Godís judgement day draws nigh

Itís time to spread the true report

Before we rise on high

It matters not how good it feels

Or what we think weíve done

It isnít you; who saves or heals

But Christ! Godís risen Son

Beware who come in Jesusí name

Godís children to deceive

Who treat salvation as a game

Because they donít believe

Weíre not to lead Godís children fail

Walking oneís selfish path

Many may find themselves in jail

Facing the coming wrath

They prance around in foolish pride

Babbling to and fro

But if Godís Spiritís not inside

To hell theyíll surely go

When children come The Truth to seek

Lead not nor teach them wrong

For though theyíre tender young and weak

The One they seek is strong

Heís neither deaf to fools of lies

Nor blind to any fake

Together with the prince of flies

Theyíll burn within the lakeÖ

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.
