Fire & Wine {1}

† † † † †Fire & Wine {1}

Hypocrisy reaches far and wide

Dissensionís running free

World religions have multiplied

But where is Truth to see?

While holding fast traditional things

Customs; men proclaim

While deep in hell the devil sings

Most of the bride sits lame

We drink religionís stagnant wine

We gorge on senseless rules

Godís secret things we thus decline-

To live out life as fools

Weíre walking dead, like blind men lost

We need to make a stand

Seek Jesus face, not count the cost

Until we understand

Until we learn Godís Way to fight

Until in Christ made strong

Until adorned and walk in Light

Singing Salvationís song

The song of Jesusí mighty arm

The hymns of lifeís elite

Its time the world heard Godís alarm

From those at Jesusí feet

We must pull down satanic walls

Demolish foolish ways

Return to Christ whoís blood yet calls

To serve Him all our days

Within the cup the Lord will give-

A wine rich strong and true

Revealing words through which to live

Through acts weíve yet to do..... P.T.O......

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.
