The Devil's Impotent
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† † †The Devil's Impotent

The devilís out to rob and kill

Heíll cheat whom God will save

Deceive them from His perfect will

And lead them to the grave

Heís impotent in all but lies

Deceitís his only course

No truthís behind his sweet disguise

No strength parades his force

Misery reigns in Satanís hoards

Since Christ was seen to die

Knowing in hell thereís no rewards

However great they lie

Too late, The Truth theyíve come to see

Too late, true wisdomís dawn

They know Christís blood will set us free

And through oneís faith reborn

Though lust they plant their wicked seed

Through doubt they seep inside

Festooned with Satanís luscious weed

Not few deceived, have died

Not few are found within his bed

Not few profess Godís light

Not always are our shepherdís led

Not always are they right

Yet heed authorityís high command

Consider Godís elite

Let conscience rule and understand

Manís reign is short and sweet

Deceit, with Satanís throne will fall

Liars will end in jail

But those found true at Jesusí call

Will stand and never failÖ..

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.
