This is a poem I wrote to celebrate Christ’s amazing victory in saving all men.
The Victory of Jesus
By Sam Starrett
The victory of Jesus is hidden from most;
The church’s lies hide it behind Hell’s dark host.
Search thou the Scriptures, and see for thyself,
if the notion of “hell” there finds any help;
Or if God’s mercy, as it’s plain to see, is granted to all, not just you and me.
If maybe, just maybe;
Jesus could have won, defeated the devil, saved the prodigal son.
If maybe, just maybe, the real truth may be;
That the salvation of God, all flesh will see.
That God to hellfire consigns none fore’er;
For a minor misdeed or a doctrinal error.
That no sin, how great or how small it may be;
could ever earn torment for eternity.
That God He hath purposed all men to save;
And nothing shall stop Him, for His oath He gave.
God cannot be thwarted, God will not be mocked;
And sin forgotten will be, not just in “hell” locked.
We received death through Adam, not hell and not sin;
‘Tis from death we’re delivered, through thick and through thin.
Love never fails, on that the Word’s clear;
God calls himself Love, he’ll draw all men near.
Yes, God will save all, and with anticipation;
I await the return of lost souls from damnation.
In Adam all die, in Christ all shall live;
for life everlasting to all he doth give.
When death is abolished, the saints shall rejoice;
How marvelous to know, God’s not bound by our choice.
