Accept Life's Guarantee
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

† † † Accept Life's Guarantee

Has Christ for you reserved a place?

Has God for you lifeís crown?

Will you see Jesusí smiling face?

Or will He wear a frown?

Many will mock, will laugh to scorn

Will fight, lie, cheat and kill

Will criticize Christís bride reborn

Believing it Godís will

Christ calls to love our fellow man

To do as God decreed

Serving in love the best we can

By planting righteous seed

We need Godís Lamb to set us free

His blood to heal and save

To comprehend that dreadful tree

To flee the gaping grave

Be wise; accept Godís Lamb as Christ

Accept Him as Godís Son!

As perfect Lamb was sacrificed

That Heavenís will be done

Wisdom accepts The Truth at hand

By grace Christís hand of love

By faith we learn to understand

The blessing of The Dove

To glorify The One to praise

Seek out His guiding Light

Obey and serve Him all our days

For soon may come the night

Accept each gift The Lord would give

Receive His Promised Dew

Then live this life that you may live

Through grace of birth anew..Ö

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.
