Give It Up
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

              Give it up

Disgraced! God’s face we’ll never see

This fact should cause concern

To be from sin completely free

All filth has need to burn


We must repent must change our ways

Set fire to sinful lust

Through Heaven’s Wind to fan the blaze

We’ll see it turn to dust


The things we hate to give up most

Each wayward dark desire

Best first we give The Holy Ghost

To purge and free by Fire


Conviction, sets The Flame alight

For sin there’s no reprieve

God’s Truth puts demons quick to flight

In Jesus’ name, they leave!


Quench not God’s Flame with doubt or fear

Give up deceit and hate

Allow them now to burn down here

God’s judgement’s far too late


The judgement starts and ends in Flame

The choice to all is free

Surrender filth, or die in shame

But wait not long to see


To live with sin we can’t afford

To die we know too well

So give it freely to The Lord

Or burn with it in hell


Whilst here, we’ve yet the golden rule

God’s wisdom close to hand

To know The Truth, yet die a fool

The Judge won’t understand…..

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.
