Let Nothing Deceive You.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

Let not the devil deceive you

Let faith reveal you why

Salvation’s Way is clear to view

Once self is caused die


Worship not God, externally

For those in church to see

But live for life eternally

Holy, complete and free


Of course, we’ll make mistakes at times

The Father knew so well

So Jesus came for all our crimes

To die and save, from hell


In faith; a while, OPEN your eyes

Any time night or day

From youth, until old and wise

Look to Heaven and pray


Seek when you can, seek where you might

Distressed or calm at ease

Steeped in darkness, or freedom’s light

Bend faithful Christ, your knees


Let Jesus know how you’re feeling

The contents of your heart

To Heaven, there’s no brass ceiling

Nothing keeping apart


Watch as devils quake, when losing

As Satan fails each day

See God’s saints, hell’s horde bruising

When day and night we pray


God’s awesome power’s, in His Word

In Jesus mighty hand

Let’s live and practice truth we’ve heard

And dwell God’s 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.
