Thieves & Cheats.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

We see them teach, hear them sing

Of God’s miraculous feats

Preachers preaching of Heaven’s King

Though some are lying cheats


They’ve books and tapes in cupboards stored

Thick bibles on their shelves

Explaining truths, of Christ The Lord

But hearing not themselves


Vast knowledge though they may pursue

Of God and Heaven’s road

Seeking to rob Christ’s chosen few

Of riches, Love’s bestowed


Their money, houses goods & fields

Seeing Christ’s sheep as fools

Not knowing what wickedness yields

Their Shepherd lives & rules


Devoid of God’s Promise on high

No fear of His might

Woe betide when robbers die

When facing Heaven’s Light


Before The Judge, they’ll surely stand

Without The One denied

They’ll see the power of His hand

Denying them inside


Each screaming “God what have I done

How wayward was my path

Rejecting Christ Your Lamb & Son

To face Your dreadful wrath”


They’ll see The Truth they’ll understand

Hell’s door opening wide

The righteous power of Jesus’ hand

Cramming them inside.....

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.
