The Book




It began from my joy of writing and the Spirit alive and working within me. I started by first writing the poem “There Was a Certain Rich Man,” and I emailed that to two friends of mine that are believers. One has since left this fleshly life and been joined in spirit and soul with the Lord. He was the best man I ever knew in my life. And I sorely miss him. Talking with him about Scripture, about God, about Jesus, about spiritual matters. I sorely miss him.


Both believer friends replied with very enthusiastic responses when I sent a copy of the above poem to them, telling me how fresh and alive that poem struck them. Bold. To the point. And they asked if I had any more poems, and suggested I consider composing a book of poems if I did.


I then proceeded to write more and more always sending the completed work to them for their consideration, and their enthusiasm grew as the volume of work did.


As I told my friends all the glory goes to God. I am merely an instrument. Truly. I am an instrument in which God is plucking the strings of my heart, my mind, my spirit, my soul and from my experiences along with the Spirit working within me these poems result.


In almost every poem I’ve written I incorporate the Word of God. I used the King James Version exclusively in this volume of poems. The older KJV. I love its language and tenor and Truth. I am not drawn to or fond of modern translations with some being out and out abominations and perverting God’s Word in an effort to appease rather then convict and instruct in the ways of God. 


I write of my personal life, personal journey, and my years of walking in the wilderness in sin. My searching. My ignoring. My living a life aware there was a God but not listening to His voice, not living to worship Him in reverence and humility as I should have been. My being a blatant unrepentant sinner and then finally coming to God after hearing Him continually call and not give up on me.


The last poem in the book which gave the book its title is a very personal account of this walk and finally allowing God to be heard within my raging spirit.


I write about the joy and thankfulness of God not giving up on me. I write a lot about the degree of depravity within the world which is a result of the voids and depravity within individuals which comprise the world. I write of the multitude of false teachers and false doctrine passing for Christian doctrine in our times. I write of the great apostasy and the last days we are living in.


Words to also inspire, words to hopefully lift and assist. Words to make one feel and think, and fall on their knees in worship of the One True Living God and His son Jesus Christ. Our Lord and Savior. He Who ought to be Lord of our lives.


I write about faith, trust, hope, and being human while warring with this flesh and looking towards heaven. Always turning to and incorporating relevant passages of the Holy Bible differentiate from my words by having Scripture in Italics.


Hopefully you’ll find these poems as refreshing and enervating. Helpful to the spirit and heart as have those who have already read them. and you will tell others if these poems move you to a closer, deeper life with the Lord. For that is the sole purpose of composing these. Not to bring attention to me. Not to bring monetary riches to me for I would have to sell thousands of books just to break even monetarily speaking (this is a self-published book because no publisher wanted to have anything to do with it.) No, while this may not be believed, I do this all for the Lord. To have His instruction, His inerrant Word reach others in a form that might move them to move their feet, move their spirits and souls, move their lives in the direction of our Father and of His Son, Jesus the Lord and Messiah, and to commit, commend, and dedicate their lives to being true believers…the light of the world, the salt of the earth!


All are composed for the honor and glory of God striving to reveal His truth through His Words and using me and mine as a small instrument helping set the tone. Without God none of these would be possible. He is not only responsible for my every breath and heartbeat, His will be done, but without my bowing to Him, hearing the voice of His Son, Jesus Christ and submitting, obeying, repenting and desiring to live for God daily in faith not a word of one poem would have been written. God makes all things possible.

“Fasten your seat belts because this is bold, searing Christian writing with a razor-sharp edge of hard truth. If you are looking for cotton candy inspiration, this is not the book for you. Are you up to it? Can you handle it? Are you a real Christian?”

~ P. Poulin

“I am changed by each of Ken’s poems. they are very much like reading Scripture for today. Ken’s love of the Word of God and the Lord is so refreshing. Ken is able to see with new eyes the things we see around us daily. You will be encouraged to go on with the Lord walking beside you, leaving the things of earth behind, through experiencing these poems — one at a time.”

~Chuck Flanigan

Wilderness: A Crooked Path to the Promised Land did not being as a book. Ken Pullen had no intention of writing a book, but the people he shared the poems in this volume with urged him to pursue getting these poems published for others to discover them.
