Life's Message.

           Life's Message.

Man is wayward from time of birth

Selfishly bent on sin

His noblest deeds are little worth

While truth is not within


But who’ll believe Life’s message told?

Who’ll eat Salvation’s Bread?

Who’ll buy from God the purest gold?

That raises from the dead


Now who’ll believe in Jesus’ name?

God’s Truth who came to tell?

To cleanse man’s heart of rotten shame

And save us all from hell?


Who else can free the captive soul?

Who else would bear the pain?

Who else would die to make man whole?

And give us birth again?


Yet fools holding to Satan’s lie

Still blind to his disguise

Believe no hell when people die

No Heaven in the skies


That Jesus Christ was never real

God’s Son is not divine

They’re free to do just as they feel

While drunk on Satan’s wine


But Satan’s song is full of thorn

Foul weed and deadly stone

To torture minds of woman born

Each heart of flesh and bone


Who’s heart is cold and void of Light

Who’s deaf to Heaven’s call

Who yet persist God’s Lamb to fight

The Truth will see them fall –Ro.9:33…..

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.
