Salvation's Mystery.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

††† Salvation's Mystery.....

Salvation is a spirit thing

Beginning here on earth

We need to change lifeís songs we sing

And seek a second birth

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †

We need to see we have a need

We need to understand

That God in us would plant a Seed

That grows throughout our land

Its not a thing the eye can see

Nothing one thinks to hear

It comes from God it comes quite free

It comes and starts right here

No need to be of high descent

No need for gold or jewel

We only need from sin repent

And bid Godís Son to rule

Through faith in Him God sacrificed

Through hope in Him who died

Salvation comes through Jesus Christ

Through He who dwells inside

Through grace of Godís eternal love

Weíve no more need to die

We need but trust for life above

When Christ we seek on high

At times mankind must feel a loss

Must hear what Christ would say

Must bend their knee beneath the cross

To humbly then obey

Salvation comes through Christ alone

Who closed deathís gaping jaw

As Lamb of God, Lifeís Corner Stone

Heís Key to Heavenís Door.....

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.
