Christ Knew.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Christ knew the day and time He’d die

For most He’d die in vain

Yet for us all He felt to cry

And suffer so much pain


He knew the wickedness of man

The Pharisees of old

Yet holding true to Heaven’s plan

He stood His station bold


He knew the rich the sick the poor

He knew who’d fail the test

He knew the few who’d life endure

And find eternal rest


He knew the young the old and grey

The lepers lame and blind

The very few He knew would stay

And have a change of mind


Today as then when walked God’s Son

Amongst The Father’s sheep

Remains but few with hearts as one

Serving until we sleep


For Christ knew well until He’d die

Until from death He’d rise

Life’s Seed would greatly multiply

In those with open eyes


So why not join The Living Christ

Accept God’s Word as Light

Believe that He was sacrificed

And help to fight the fight


Believe in Christ the war is won

Walking the righteous trail

Knowing until God’s will is done

Not one of His will fail.....

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.
