Evidence Of God's Presence.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Who believes they’re Heaven bound?

Forgiven, saved, washed clean

Able to walk on hallowed ground

As Jesus righteous queen


Who in the presence of God can stand?

Knowing they’re truly free

Able to take and hold Gods hand

Able His face to see


In churches, Spirit-filled you’ll go

Be guided by The King

Allow His righteous will to flow

His presence there to bring


It's then conviction’s dawn can rise

God’s Holy Wind can blow

Raising the dead opening eyes

Beneath Salvation’s glow


The presence of The Righteous One

With holes in hands and feet

The Lamb of God The Father’s Son

God’s righteousness complete


Conviction in The Father’s house

God’s evidence divine

Can change a humble church mouse

Or water into wine


Conviction in a church that’s true

Reveals a soul not right

Reveals to me perhaps like you

The need to see The Light


Conviction is a wondrous thing

God’s evidence supreme

Will raise the walking dead to sing

Songs far beyond their dream......

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.
