Israel! Mirror To The Future,,,,,
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


As Rachel again is crying

As Jacob bears the fight

Man, again looks on denying

Israel’s dreadful plight

 

As the mirror image grows clear

Whilst truth eludes the mind

Deceived mankind gropes round in fear

Stone deaf, selfish and blind

 

Nothing is new that has not been

The bible tells quite plain

Jacob’s sorrows the world will glean

When havoc dawns again

 

Cosmic birth pains are now to feel

Warning this fallen race

So unlike Sodom, more may kneel

To pray for saving grace

 

Like Noah’s time, still few alone

Will see God’s warnings true

For Christ to take away death’s stone

And join God’s chosen few

 

Yet God’s true word without fault stands

His promises remain

Guaranteed through Christ’s feet and hands

Borne on death’s tree of pain

 

But Jesus rose as Heaven’s Door

With hell, with true life’s key

Power forever to close death’s jaw

And set the captive free

 

Life’s mirror for a while remains

In God’s word, to the Jew

Who’ve borne the load, blessings, and pains

For all the world to view…..

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.
