John Preached With Fire

Updated on April 22, 2012

John Preached With Fire

Now John the Baptist preached with fire

As he spread about God's Precious Word.

Oh Lord, please let my pen do the same

Just let it be for You like a flaming sword.

Let it slay the sinner now as he reads,

Let his sinful heart be broken deep within,

Let him cry and plead and beg for mercy

Until his black heart is cleansed from sin.

It's not for me ,Lord, that I would have

A burning pen clutched tight in hand.

But for the One Who has done so much

And let me glimpse the Promised Land.

The feelings there deep inside our heart

At times are often so very hard to phrase.

Lord, help me to handle Thy Word with care

As I try to verse it with my love and praise.

Dear Father,help me to write with such fire

As the Blessed story of redemption I relate,

Throw a cloak of conviction on all who read

Make them quake in fear at their future fate.

Help this pen send fear deep into their heart.

Help the sinner be overwhelmed with concern.

On pen,do your part,rob each one of their rest,

Until begging and pleading to Jesus they turn.!!


We all grew up with the stories of John

The Baptist ,It was not the way that he

looked that attracted people to him ,it

was the message that he had to give

to the people,not everyone believed

but he gave the message of God to the

people. Then it was up to those around

him to accept or deny , He could not

force them to believe but he gave them

the message of the Lord, some people

believed and some didn't, just like today.

All men are supposed to hear the story

of God and His Love , it is up to them

what they do when they do hear !

      Wow, clara, such fierce words of His Truth. An awesome poem for sure. Yes, once we put the Word out there, then it is up to that person to make a choice. Amen! In His Love, Faith Reaper
