Love Can Hate.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Simple mistakes can cost dear

Can take away one’s breath

Make the bravest turn in fear

May even cause one’s death


However much you think it odd

Whatever fools may tell

Make no mistake there is a God

A Heaven and a hell


Make no mistake of what’s above

Let wisdom justly state

Although The Lord’s of perfect love

Can God not also hate?


He loves sinners but hates their sin

He hates that man must die

He hates to see souls Satan win

That ought to rise on high


He loves sinners but hates their shame

He hates when children fail

When demons on their souls lay claim

Who could have risen on high


He hates to see man falling short

To see His servants fall

Repent of heeding love’s report

When Jesus came to call


God hates to watch as darkness thrives

When churches swerve off course

When husbands cheat on loving wives

And end up in divorce


Regardless who or what we are

We need to comprehend

Love will be near and hate not far

Until the very end.....

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.
