Covenant & Law.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

According to The Father’s plan

To show His selfless love

God made a covenant with man

With Him to rise above


To have the keys for evermore

To dwell His Promised Land

He wrote His covenant and law

On tablets with His hand


His servant Moses received them

Who bore them down the mount

Once there he found but mayhem

Yet none gave true account


He asked them how he asked why

Disloyalty was found

Distraught he held the tablets high

Then smashed them on the ground


Upon the mount returning then

A further forty days

God wrote on tablets once again

Then went their separate ways


Within a golden ark he laid

The tablets safely down

Further then the journey made

Until Jericho town


Since then both covenant and law

Most treated with respect

Yet only few have found The Door

Where no one would expect


God gave to eat showed tender care

Accompanied them as Guide

Though countless wander everywhere

But who will rise 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.
