A TIME AND PLACE…by Carl Gooch

A Time and Place

To whom does He speak?
To whom does He give warning?
Behold their ears are unopened,
His words they do not heed.

They set and mock His word.
They find no wisdom in it.
So when He returns again,
They will be found lacking.

I look and see the time coming,
I cry out with dry and empty breath.
My soul is filled with wrath,
I grow weary speaking to the dead.

The time is near, His people cheer,
As the lost run trembling in fear.
Be wise in spirit and give an ear,
Do not reject His holy words you hear.

He went to prepare a place for you;
Have you prepared a place for Him?
His people know His love is true,
Now He offers that love to you.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
