Make Sure

† † † † † † Make Sure

The Truth is knocking at the door

Of all the lost and blind

The foolish proud, the child unsure

Those bound with self in mind

Receive The Christ receive your sight

Receive a brand new name

Be baptised in Lifeís living Light

Receive Godís Promised Flame

Godís Holy Ghost reveals The Way

Will comfort and will guide

Restoring all whoíve gone astray

While burning filth inside

Be baptised in the death of Christ

Let self find swift demise

That through the portion sacrificed

To second birth youíll rise

Yet take good heed be truly warned

Escape the judgement sword

Make sure Salvationís Light has dawned

Make sure that Christ is Lord

For when Heís truly Lord and King

Godís Word would be your rule

Youíd soon beware which song youíll sing

Youíll play no more the fool

Youíll frequent church but not to rest

Not only to receive

Youíll come with what The Lord has blessed

So others may believe

We have a date with Christ to keep

Godís work requires haste

So no oneís called to sit and sleep

Nor precious time to waste.....

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.
