Is God Alive? (2)

The Lord reveals why countries war

Why peoples kill and lie

Why still we fail to keep Godís law

Why all one day must die

Spiritual droughtís in every land

Pestilence, waste, decay

Better if man would understand

Repent and walk Godís way

God chastens us that we may learn

That sin brings death and ill

Yet peace and life to those whoíll turn

To do His chosen will

Godís Spirit comes to show The Way

To glorify His name

To guide and help His sheep astray

Convicting us of shame

Thereís no excuse once truth is seen

When one has seen the Light

The Christ, The Door, Godís Go Between

The Fatherís awesome might

The One who died, is Lord of all

Removing spot and stain

Through Him, no child will come to fall

When in Him, they remain

Thereíll be no end to pain and grief

Who close to Christ their door?

Nowhere ever theyíll find relief

When time becomes no more

The Door to lifeís still open wide

Through Christ is manís reprieve

The choice is free to walk inside

Who by Godís grace believe..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.
