Eat and Drink Well

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

Some think they’re safe from death and hell 

Sitting in church at ease

Dangerously thinking all is well

Doing just as they please


“I’m saved I’m blessed I’m Heaven bound

I’ll live without a doubt

For in life’s book my name is found

Where fire! Can’t burn it out”


Is this the truth, are these the facts?

Is this why Jesus died?

Let’s journey through the book of acts

With righteousness as guide


Let’s see what God through Luke will say

Though Peter John and Paul

Let’s learn through these, The Perfect Way

So no one comes to fall


Let’s greet the book as living bread

As water fresh and deep

Lets eat and drink till truly fed

Before we fall asleep


For all must sleep before we rise

Before God’s face we see

Before we enter Paradise

Or hell, if that should be


Make no mistake the Bible’s clear

God’s word is all too plain

Many will leave this world in fear

Many will live in vain


Make your election sure my friend

Consider all your ways

For soon the time of grace will end

Just as the Bible says…..

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.
