             Fear and Trembling

Before creation falls apart –Rev.6:13-14

Before the end draws nigh –Rev.22:12

If Christ is not within your heart –Rev.3:20

Repent; before you die –Rev.20:15


Not only man may tremble here

The Lord has all; in view

Heaven & earth have need to fear –Hag.2:6

When God makes all things new


If angels too must face The Lord

If they; can lose their place –Jude:6

What chance has man to flee the sword?

Without God’s saving grace


Let here on earth, His will be done

His glory all to see

God chose His one and only Son

Should die to set us free


Heed all the bible has to say

Each word the Lord’s embraced

Prepare to meet your God today –Am.4:12

Let not a moment waste


Salvation’s more than in some pew

The church is not the cure

But who hear God’s will and do –Jas.1:22-25

Eternal life’s secure


Obey, and seek the sheep yet lost –Lk.19:10

Pour forth The Truth as wine –Mt.28:19-20

Show love to all, count not the cost –Lk.10:33-35

One’s lamp outside, should shine –Isa.60:1


In Christ, it’s time to turn the tide

To set the captive free

The sinner’s eye to open wide

At last God’s Truth to see…..

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.
