Consider the Lamb
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

         Consider the Lamb

Man’s time has come to take a stand

Salvation’s now and here

God’s calling out to every land

His trumpet’s loud and clear

 

Too long we’ve had to suffer loss

Too oft we’re seen to fail

While victory won upon the cross

Made Way from Satan’s jail

 

The war for life has long been won

By grace we now can choose

We’ve victory through God’s Lamb and Son

Or death if Christ we lose

 

God’s offer now we’ve each to take

Life’s door is closing fast

The choice is free for all to make

Before the dye is cast

 

But still with life we play such fools

We act as though insane

If we persist to break The Rules

We’ll feel in hell the pain

 

We must be right before we die

Have Jesus clean one’s slate

Who’s found in death with Satan’s lie

Will share his dreadful fate

 

We must take heed of Heaven’s Light

Consider Jesus well

The Dove of grace could soon take flight

Leaving us bound for hell

 

Pray Jesus come to set you free

Remove death’s heavy stone

Consider well, for soon we’ll see

Our Judge upon His throne....

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.
