Strength from God
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

†††††††† Strength from God

When mortal man of flesh and bone

Receives Salvationís Seed

Weíll seek to push away deathís stone

And rid satanic weed

Weíll see of self it canít be done

Demonic weeds are sweet!

Weíll need the help of Christ Godís Son

Weíll sit at Jesusí feet

Though bound in Satanís chains of shame

Formed strong through links of sin

We need but call on Jesusí name

Once truth has dawned within

Godís strength comes in His Gift received

Trusting The living Christ

He comes by grace through faith† believed

In He God sacrificed

Although the world may fail to see

Although no gold can buy

Through righteous blood He comes quite free

To such as you and I

We need but of our sins repent

Return to walk in Light

Believe in whom The Father sent

The Victor of the fight

To Satanís end, the dye is cast

The world must understand

As Champion, stands The First & Last

With keys of like in hand

So mortal man, look deep inside

Is Jesus Christ your Lord?

If not; youíll reach the last divide

And feel Godís vengeful sword.....

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.
