And The Lord Said Go!

"Furnace Glow"
"Furnace Glow"

Cold iron in my heart, warm lead in my words,

From where His soul came they sung heavenly chords

I cannot be quiet, I cannot be tame,

My Lord knows for He has accounted of my shame

My hands are heavy; my thoughts refuse the still,

Eventually you will learn how great His will

I am sad, so sad am I for you,

Little did I realize my actions would reach so few

A task I have is a momentous task He gave,

“Please go, speak of Me living beyond My grave.”

Joy must wait, in saving life there is no later,

Before death bows, will you please meet our Creator?

I am not here to comfort, I came to warn

Those who turn from Him shall ye be forlorn

Salt from my sight must be confusing your plight,

You do not see the coming eternal fight

Furnaces glowing red give light so hot and low,

Anguish melts there with the many souls who sow

My friend we have but only one chance in He

The one and only who laid down His life for thee

In others we see ourselves, mirrors to Him are we

Brothers and sister together, happily ever after shall we be.

Amen

brothers and sisters are we
brothers and sisters are we

Hi Pastor,

Thank you for being the first to comment on my poem. This is one of those times where I was working on another written project but I couldn’t get this out of my head. Once again the Lord’s creative inspiration got in the way of what I was doing…lol.

I feel blessed to share this type of writing with fellow believers.

Keep the spirit alive.

Beautiful and moving. Makes me want to live more righteously in front of the world. To some people, the only Bible they will read will be our lives.

Hi Icbenefield,

Thank you for a great compliment and such a deep thought.

“to some people, the only Bible they will read will be our lives.”

That is so true, and quite frankly one that worries me because I know I am not always in a positive place. Being blunt has draw backs, but none so dark as an executioners. We all have a place and the Lord uses us for means we cannot see.

Thank you friend.

God keep you.

Great poem!

Reminds me of Ezekiel 3: 18-When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

19-Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

20-Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

21-Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

God bless you Jason!

Hisbody,

Thank you for the great scripture, yes there are some parallels to Ezekiel and many more that I morphed with New Testament.

I cannot say I came up with these thoughts all my own; when I re-read it over and over, like scripture, I find another anecdote hidden. The mass of thoughts swirling in my head gave meaning for so many situations we face as Christians.

I am happy to be on this side of the Lord.

Thank you.

God keep you.

Thank you Coach, I am glad we can share in the responsibility to remind and lift one another. We are the community from which we must spread his word by whatever way is available.

God bless you too friend.

Thank you Micky,

we inspire each other in our walks. The Lord brings us together where we affirm one another, then go out and profess his name. Amen

God bless.
