Life's Wisdom & Knowledge.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Who can great wisdom purchase?

Knowledge of Heaven to share

Beyond life’s greatest researches

Life’s guarantee declare

 

Until man’s heart, Life’s Facts can see

Man’s soul learns God is true

Until to Christ, we bow our knee

And Heaven’s Way pursue

 

Deceived! People will cheat and lie

Will murder, rape and steal

Remaining so until they die

Without Salvation’s Seal

 

Not knowing life’s eternal plan

The reason Jesus died

Christ’s blood would pay all debts of man

Who’ll bid Life’s Lamp inside

 

Life’s Councillor The Holy Dove

The same who came to Christ

Who left God’s Lamb to rise above

That Christ be sacrificed

 

For fifty days to walk the earth

For witnesses to see

True faith will lead to second birth

Whom Jesus’ blood sets free

 

But who will come to victory?

Who’ll trust God’s Lamb and Son?

See The Truth on death’s blood-soaked tree

Until the battle’s won

 

Not by might or one’s endeavour

Nor books of human scrawl

But in He who lives forever

Creator God of all….

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.
