               Body and Soul.

Man placed God’s Lamb within the tomb –Mk.15:42-47

Who’d died in dreadful pain –Mk.15:21-41

His grave a simile to the womb –Mt.12:39-40

Gave birth to Christ again –Ro.6:4

 

He left behind the clothes He wore –Jn.20:6-7

To rise as Lord and King –Mt.19:28

Enrobed in Glory’s Light once more –Rev.1:13-18

The saved His praise to sing

 

The complete Christ had left the grave

No bones were found within

Revealing, bodies too He’ll save

That leaves behind their sin

 

Yet who’ll believe Salvation’s plan?

From death to birth anew!

Fulfilled through Christ,  proving to man

By dining with the few

 

To eat, the spirit has no need

This truth God’s Lamb has shown

Dining on fish, God’s risen Seed –Lk.24:42-43

Nourished His flesh and bone

 

Once Enoch, walked with God the earth

One day he was no more –Gen.5:24

Quite whole to Him who gave him birth

He entered Heaven’s door

 

With whirlwind sent from God on high –2Ki.2:11

Came chariot, fire and steed

Bore whole Elijah in the sky

Alive, as God decreed

 

So offer God your body true –Ro.12:1-5

Through Jesus, free of shame –1Co.6:11

Quite reasonable in Christ to do

When baptised in His name..…

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.
