            Fire & Wine (2)

Shameful we drink the devil’s brew

Obedience fails the soul

While Jesus through His precious Dew

Will save and make us whole


Although outside the devil prowls

Will cause lost souls to fail

God’s guiding Flame within one’s bowels

Will keep us free of jail


God’s Flame is not for man’s delight

It’s not a toy for play

Nor has it come to warm at night

Nor comfort us by day


God sends The Flame to purge out sin

His Holy Ghost lays bare

Convicting power burns bright within

The bride of Christ to share


The Comforter! Man’s Guide to life

God’s judgement here on earth      1Pe.4:17

“Fire” to cleanse The Saviour’s bride

And lead to second birth


Countless may think they’re safe and sound

Salvation’s come and more

Yet no one builds on solid ground

Who fail to find life’s Door


Let no one say, “I’m of the Vine

I’m righteous through and through”

For Heaven’s Flame is in God’s Wine

In Bread each day anew


Let’s drink Salvation’s Liquid Light

God’s power to life and love

When baptised in His awesome Might

We’ll join God’s throng above…..

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.
