Children of Promise
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


“Cry from walls temple and steeple

Heed well Salvation’s call

Heaven’s raising a chosen people

Not one of whom will fall

 

Trust in The Lord true God & King

Trust in His awesome might

Have faith life’s victory song to sing

When rising from the fight

 

Be not afraid my children dear

Take heart stand Jesus true

Your Captain’s arm is ever near

To guide and comfort you

 

Stand firm as one always aware!

Have faith in saving grace

Knowing my love, knowing I care

For all who seek my face

 

Allow no circumstance dismay

No situation fright

I’m with you constant in the fray

And through the darkest night

 

So what my child is there to fear?

What foe can cause you harm?

Heaven’s Lord is always near

Wielding His mighty arm

 

My word is true my promise real

On this you can rely

Upon who’s life I place my Seal

That soul will never die

 

Fight on my child in Jesus’ hand

His righteousness pursue

Forever will dwell my Promised Land

Who to the end stand true”…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
