The Prowl Continues

Carefully walking with Jesus
 Lest I fall
Into the wide mouth of the jaws 
Of  the prowling wolf

The wolf glares salivating 
At all who know not his enemy
He snatches to throw as kindling into his furnace of woe
 Of Fire unending.
Ah ah he snarls 
Another one for me
How many does that make
Have I beaten my enemy.

The enemy of the wolf 
Powerful Almighty omnipresent  God
Sees the calculating wolf and knows his every move
Powerless wolf who prowls around
Your days are numbered.
My Son already paid the price with His blood to set the captives free
And all who believe
They are mine and will come join me.

Oh calculating wolf the time
Of the bell that celebrates your demise is about to toll

The wolf replied NOT before I snatch others
Many have not knocked at your door
Many saw door but failed to knock
How lucky for me, I’ll win this you will see.
I have and will capture!  They think they have plenty of time
They haven’t bowed down to you

They don’t believe who you are
They are easy prey for me.

I am a novice writer and painter who loves to be creative. I love singing but can't sing without a hymnal, except for children's songs. I love to make up my own songs and love the old hymns. I love to garden and got that love from my Mom and Dad who taught be everything I know from planting to harvesting to canning. I'm happy gardening, walking with my pug, JD Sir Winston Churchill, painting, and crafting. I love to spend Saturday's sitting in my rocker going through a bible study. I love working with elementary school aged children and seeing them use their creative gifts. I have taught Sunday school for a number of years and taught in the public schools for 18 years. I might say I'm retired but I spend most of my time subbing and enjoy it immensely. The kids spark my own creativeness.

  1. Rena, your poem, especially the verse, “Sees the calculating wolf and knows his every move”, spurred me to go back and read the warning in Matthew 7:15-20 about wolves. Seems the wolves in this scripture were “disguised as harmless sheep”.

    My bible commentary says: “False prophets were common in Old Testament times. They prophesied only what the king and the people wanted to hear, claiming it was God’s message. Jesus indicates that false prophets were just as prevalent in his time. False teachers are just as common today. Jesus says to beware of those whose words sound religious but who are motivated by money, fame or power. You can tell who they are because in their teaching they minimize Christ and glorify themselves.”

    Matthew Henry, in his commentary says something similar. “7:15-20 Nothing so much prevents men from entering the strait gate, and becoming true followers of Christ, as the carnal, soothing, flattering doctrines of those who oppose the truth. They may be known by the drift and effects of their doctrines. Some part of their temper and conduct is contrary to the mind of Christ. Those opinions come not from God that lead to sin.”.

      1. I can’t recall seeing any Christian art of man and wolf at the moment. I recall Dorothy’s living creatures art but just can’t picture a half wolf, half man right at the moment…will think on.

    1. Thank you Debi for bringing those scriptures to light. Our enter alarm better sound off when we hear someone who sounds religious but has a hidden agenda. Scary!! God give all discernment so as not to be caught in their trap.

  2. I wish we had Dorothy’s picture of the wolf. In my mind I picture the wolf from the waist down being the wolf. Very very stealthy is he. The upper torso and face so beguiling he entices all to take a closer look at his beauty. However the eyes are so cold they look like death.

      1. Very scary Sara! How many cloth themselves in sheep’s clothing. Maybe sometime we may learn of this as they journey here, or on their death bed they confess, or die and find heaven’s door is locked to them as God knows all behind the closed doors of their life they thought hidden.
