Jacob's Promise Realized.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


The first are last, the last are first

Toward our unseen goal

God welcomes all to quench their thirst

And feed their hungry soul

 

Let Israel see The Truth Lord

Let darkness close its gate

Let Jacob flee the coming sword

From those consumed with hate

 

Grant Jacob Lord a blessing now

Let Israel unite

Open their eyes their knees to bow

To Heaven’s Word & Light

 

That they may see The living One

Let darkness beat retreat

Reveal them Christ, Your Lamb Your Son

With pierced hands and feet

 

Let Jesus stand as God & man

Glorious Lord supreme

Fulfilling love’s eternal plan

Ending the devil’s dream

 

We ask my God because we care

With heart and soul confess

Salvation Lord we pray You share

With brothers in distress

 

Israel’s faith in true love’s law

In fear of Your name

Open their eyes open the door

To Heaven’s Dove & Flame

 

As written let us all draw nigh

At Jesus’ royal command

Let praises ring never to die

In Jacob’s Promised Land.....

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.
