None Else Can Make This Boast.....

   None Else Can Make This Boast.....

Traditions fail but still arise

Religion’s run by fools

Sects and factions persist through lies

Sharing demonic rules

 

Religion says its prayers in vain

With footing’s not on high

But Christ who died yet rose again

So none of His should die

 

There’s no one else to make this boast

Not one from Heaven or earth

No one without The Holy Ghost

Will rise to second birth

 

That man must die is plain to see

All flesh the grave will feed

But God states life; He’ll give those free

Accepting Christ His Seed

 

When minds this statement understand

When hearts accept these facts

Jesus will raise to dwell His land

As in the book of acts

 

The facts to all they’re plain in view

The Truth’s before our eyes

Through faith in Christ, we’re born anew

For endless life to rise

 

We find and feel these facts inside

God’s Spirit leads to see

He comes to help He comes to guide

He comes as guarantee

 

He comes to those who’s hearts are true

Who’s faith in Christ is real

As barren land embraces dew

Receive Salvation’s Seal.....

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.
