The Finger of Accusation

The Finger of Accusation

Godís finger wrote upon the wall

A statement true and sound††††††††††††††††† Da.5:5

Still man will point will bring to fall

Where guilt he thinks is found

Yet oft no guilt is there to see

Though blood begins to spill

Many fall lost in world debris

Where tongues have sought to kill

We need to stop and think of this

Am I, the devilís slave?

Would I deliver Judas kiss?

And dig my Saviourís grave?

If someone else would evil speak

To slander you or I

Would not the judgeís face we seek?

To prove their evil lie

We just canít talk, as one would choose

To point, and not repent

Be born again, yet false accuse

Believing Godís content!

Through accusations, sheep can stray

False charges lead to shame

If then obscurity calls one day

Itís we; who are to blame

Like Abelís blood, to God theyíll cry

When false accused of sin

Eternity, will hear the sigh

Of how they died within

Through wagging tongue, numbers lay dead

Where truth is left to grieve

The blood is on no other head

But he, whoís made them leaveÖ..

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.
