Marketplace Of Sin - Poem by Bob Gotti

Purchased from the marketplace of sin, and given a new life to begin,
One marketplace comprised of all, men and women from Adam’s fall.
This marketplace built upon deceit, with ways of sin which are replete,
Under the leadership of, no other than, the mighty accuser of all men.

A marketplace that we’re born into, and through no fault of me or you,
And it’s only through God’s Grace, that we are taken out of this place.
This is only after we were sought, by the Lord God, then were bought,
With the precious blood of Christ, to be given by Jesus, our New Life.

No longer a victim of sin’s curse, which around us will only get worse,
God’s curse upon the Devil’s start, after he deceived the human heart.
And knowing that his time is short, any Truth of God Satan will distort,
Hindering all who attempt to come, to a true knowledge of God’s Son.

But his dark scheme won’t prevail, even though his wicked forces rail,
Making days seem dark as night, as Satan opposes all Truth of Light.
For God saved us from his pit of sin, to stand and be a light for Him,
As we live out the Truth of God, in His victory over the darkened sod.

All of this darkness and despair, is promoted by the prince of the air,
But, God saved both you and me, for a Kingdom that spans Eternity,
For Satan’s marketplace and domain, will be destroyed by one Name,
As the Light of Christ our Lord, dispels Satan’s darkness forevermore.
