God's Blessing God's Curse.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

As governments come, countries fall

Though few know how or why

While Israel’s face is to the wall

Many are maimed and die


Blessed are children with opened eyes

Life’s facts are crystal clear

To truth, God makes the chosen wise

Blessing with godly fear


To these is plain the reason

Why dirges, countries sing

Where each has committed treason

Against life’s Lord and King


God’s promises and curse stand true

Come sunshine or icy gale

According to what we say and do

Countries thrive or fail


The world’s been warned so many times

In Babylon, Greece and Rome

When Jacob felt these countries crimes

They shrank like melted foam


So Britain nineteen forty-eight

Prepared to pay the price

Against Jacob revealed its hate

Then crumbled in a trice


Today; the world is in decay

Governments moan and groan

Not one their debts to God can pay

While Jacob stands alone


What is to say, what can man do?

Before we all fall dead

We must repent to start, anew

With Israel as head…..

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.
