Israel's Long Fought Land.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Though closer draws God’s judgement day

Without Christ’s guiding hand

Even some churches fail to pray

For Jacob’s long fought land


Whilst their foe bomb and toss their stones

With faces at the wall

Little Israel stands alone

Except on whom they call


God’s promises stand forever true

His time draws daily nigh

Though Yaakov’s army numbers few

They’ll watch their enemies die


With tongues aflame eyes popping

With anguish with great concern

They’ll see their hateful foe dropping

To dust entirely burn


On Yaakov’s heights will none escape?

Who body and limb would sever

Who come to plunder, kill and rape

Praise God forever and ever


They wouldn’t listen, didn’t care

All Israel must die

None should live none should share

What rockets sought to by


Though God was silent for a time

Watching His chosen’s plight

He saw the enemy’s fatal crime

And joined in Yaakov’s fight


With God, had Yaakov need to fear

What enemy could stand?

With halleluiah’s ringing clear

They’ll enter their Promised Land…..

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.
