Woe To False Shepherds,,,,,
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Superstitions, skulduggery

Flood churches still today

Pornography and buggery

Cause sheep to run astray


One finds them here, finds them there

Deceivers roam worldwide

Busy pilfering Heaven’s share

And raping Jesus’ bride


Fraudsters don’t fear God at all

Or so that’s how it seems

Cathedral, chapel or church hall

Hypocrisy flows in streams


Whilst preaching lies and foolish rot

In Jesus holy name

They’ll cast out demons that are not

Without a bit of shame


Through reading bibles, reading books

How preachers, preach and pray

Not everything is how it looks

Whatever people say


Imposters may run but cannot hide

Carousing as they please

Seeking out sheep without a guide

And fleecing them at ease


Woe to shepherds who starve God’s sheep

Who rob and such them dry

Will not the Reaper one day reap?

For judgement in the sky


God knows each of them by name

Exactly where they stay

Will He not feed them to hell’s flame?

Forever and a day…..

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.
