God's Word.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


When God alone, could hear and see

Emptiness everywhere

Then God spoke forth “Let light now be”

Creation’s soon may share

 

Life’s Father was ere time began

As was His living Word

Before on earth He first made man

To live through what he heard

 

The truth no less and nothing more

Till Satan came one day

Tempting man to break God’s law

And so be sent away

 

To live alone himself to fend

With Eve his given wife

Until their breath and life would end

They’d suffer selfish strife

 

Through children that were born to them

Grew up this fallen race

Debauchery reigns with mayhem

Where true love’s hard to trace

 

Where God and man are still apart

Where man will man’s blood spill

Where selfish gain rules soul and heart

In disobedient will

 

Is God to blame for being true?

Allowing people’s right

Allowing free will to me and you

To live to love or fight

 

Or seek once more our Father’s face

Allow His will be done

Pray through love for saving grace

Again to live as one…..

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.
