Share Life's Victory.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

Perverted grows the human race

Each day each shrouded night

Selfish, man roams from place to place

Devoid of grace and light


Till earth’s in such a sorry state

A rotten downright shame

Consuming lies, from Satan’s plate

Denying Jesus’ name


The living God, who saves man’s soul

From Satan’s grasp, sets free

To cleans heal, complete make whole

To share life’s victory


Even some churches suffer loss

That genesis deny

Christ’s virgin birth, death on the cross

To rise and reign on high


But from which book are they reading?

Surely, not Heaven’s Word

Neither listening nor heeding

All true! Christians have heard


The bible’s to teach guides the lost

Bring joy, or cause one pain

The faithful though, accept the cost

To live when born again


Knowing that eternity waits

True wisdom’s for the few

Closing death’s jaw, hell’s gaping gates

To drink of Heaven’s dew


Their faith will open Heaven’s Door

With Holy Guarantee

Receive true life forever more

By Jesus’ royal decree…..

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.
