THERE IS A PLACE

THERE IS A PLACE

A Poem by NeiL ArandA
"

The doctrine of the Kingdom of Heaven, which was the main teaching of Jesus, is certainly one of the most revolutionary doctrines that ever stirred and changed the human thought. - H. G. Wells

"



THERE IS A PLACE

There's a place where God resides

Eternal home of saints gone by
Where angels sing that fly so high
Where no more tears and deep long sigh.

There's a place where Jesus hides
A perfect place beyond our sight
A holy place of pure delight
Righteousness and glorious light.

There's a heart that thirsts for God
In a dry, parched and solitary land

Not a drop of rain nor morning dew

His desperate heart faints for You.

 

There's a soul that longs to see

A merciful Savior who sets him free

From mires of sin and misery
Who paid it all at Calvary.

There's a sparrow who yearns to sing
In his plight his hopes may bring
Your secret place where he belongs
Sing to You his brand new song.

There's a Man nailed on a tree
‘Gave His life for you and me
A man of sorrow forsaken by many
Proved His love to humanity.

There's hope beyond this life
You are precious in His sight
Avail His grace while still around
Seek Him now while He is found


There's a love that holds no bound

His precious blood shed for us

Payment, for all the sins conceived

Will be yours if you just believe.


There's a time when He returns

Clock is ticking you should be concerned

Your souls destiny you must perceive

Don't be naive and eternally deceived.


There's a place of great Reproach

Where lost souls weep and had no hope

If you're saved you might not care

Abandon hope if you entered there.


There's a great heavenly reward
For those who labor for the cause of Christ

Treasures beyond your wildest dream

Waiting for those who've been redeemed ...

Author's Note

NeiL ArandA


Success in life is not about gaining more wealth, power, position nor prestige,
but rather seeking and finding the Lord Jesus Christ. ~ Charles Stanley

God greatest task is seeking us. His greatest desire is to find us. His greatest joy is loving us.

Neil, the poem is not so moving but I was so moved because of the goodness that I have seen from the heart of the poet here. After accepting your challenge, I go to the very last page of your writings and this is the last...that means this is the first that you posted here.

I have read in your review comment below that you have asked God when you wrote this piece. In my heart, this is it! This is the one that you are talking about.

I'm thankful with the author's note above. You really have more values shown in your every piece.

One question, Neil : are you a nurse, or a priest/preacher? Or are you an another angel in disguise for many people here?

Thank you for being an inspiration here, Neil.

Thanks Anahat for the read ...Glad you are able to relate
The teachings of Socrates, and Zoroaster among other ancients were also revolutionary doctrines in their day. Socrates suffered at the hands of the Priest of Zeus for his teachings, and was ordered into exile and death. Julius Caesar had a revolutionary doctrine too, and he paid the price for it at the hands of angry senators. People who try to change the statue quo pay a price. The God Mood is a very complex one, and the subject of Psychology. We all seem to have the God Mood. Moods are synergies, and synergies have no logical algorithms, but they are essential to our survival as a species. Moods are evolved species survival traits. All Jesus wanted us to do was get in tune with our natural species survival traits. Not a bad idea.
