God's Chosen Prophet (2)
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

� � � God's Chosen Prophet.....2

No prophet should be still for man

Nor bound from what they do

They�re called as part of Heaven�s plan

In service of the few

Still man would clamber Zion hill

Content with current views

Refuse to heed Christ Jesus� will

Through vessels God would use

In church, they wander half asleep

Unknown, resolves of God

Milling around like foolish sheep

Without the Shepherd�s Rod

Not few; yet choose as judge to sit

Of those who hear God�s voice

But still to God, they won�t commit

Nor make His will, their choice

Rejecting Jesus� chosen guide

While wolves are at the door

Like fools, such sheep will fail to hide

From Satan�s gaping jaw

Yet God�s not blind, to children�s need

He hates it, when we die

So Jesus� flock He�ll give to feed

Through such as you and I

Best not reject who brings the news

Yet test their spirit well

You could be next whom God will choose

To guide His sheep from hell

You think you�re nought within man�s sight

You�ve seldom words to say

But others yet would compromise

And lead God�s sheep astray.....�

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.
