Biblical Poetry
Early in 2017, I felt prompted by the Lord to start writing Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word. This is something I've never attempted before, but felt very drawn to it by the Lord. In obedience to Him, I have sensed a whole new realm of God's grace as I have begun to write in this way. I hope you enjoy them.

Journey into the Invisible Realm
By Ken L Birks

As darkness covers the land, spiritual eyes unlock the invisible sphere.

With natural eyes only, we trip and stumble, falling into stagnation.

A kingdom realm within now discovered exists without observation.

Into this realm, we journey from the works of darkness to be safe and secure.

To the invisible, where darkness doesn’t exist, we flee with the armor of light.


In this realm, invincibility is sensed, as hearts turn to that which is above.

A protective shield appears as the armor of light is given for security.

We trample over the power of the enemy with newfound freedom and authority.

Nothing can hurt us as we dwell in the secret place of the Most High, above.

The armor of light not only protects but reveals the paths ahead, thereof.


The Father’s Son takes us by the hand and teaches us to see anew.

He gives the Holy Spirit to reveal all that is in the Father’s heart, hitherto.

His Word becomes a lamp unto our paths, giving insight and proficiency.

With the eyes of our understanding unlocked, we walk with new confidence.

As we trust in Him, we no longer lean upon our own sufficiency.


With spiritual eyes now open, evidence of the unseen is clearly seen.

With faith in the newfound substance of a kingdom unseen, we reign.

When times of darkness and testing come, we cling to His Word in obedience.

We treasure His Word more than our necessary food in our persistence.

Our feet hold fast to His steps when He seems to disappear at times.


From faith to faith, we go, knowing we'll see a little further when we get there.

With mountains removed, knowing there is nothing to stop us, we press on,

Filled with vision and excitement for all that is ahead we continue in anticipation.

Even though faith is tested at times, we know we shall come forth as gold.

The faithfulness of the Father is with us. He shall never forsake us, we’re told.


In this invisible realm, we now live, safe and secure in the Father’s love.

All plans and purposes are now birthed from this perspective from above.

With vision so captivating, we journey towards the destiny that is now ours.

We look for that city, whose builder and maker is the Father above.

We know that when we arrive, it will be more magnificent than imagined.

This poem describes what the book, "The Journey" is all about.
