If Heaven's Ship Sails.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

If from one’s life, Jesus would fail

What would you or I do?

If Heaven’s Ship, today would sail

Would tragedy! Pursue?


Would you and I be in the crowd?

Would either of us cry?

Hearing Christians rose in a cloud!

Leaving both you and I


When hearing the Bible’s warning             

Church members left behind

Too late, would be wisdom’s dawning

Where modern schools can’t find


So many churches are wearing smiles

Pleasing members within

Accepting, agreeing, up and down aisles

Instead of fighting sin


This! Is why churches are closing

Worldwide playing like fools

Purposely, willing, supposing

Allowing! Devils stools


Thank God, Life’s Ship is Jesus

Praise God, I’m safe and sound

Salvation is here to change us

To rise on Hallowed Ground


Let Jesus do what He’s here for

For souls like you and I

Being Life’s King, Key, Heaven’s Door

Where rising souls, never die


Consider Life’s Ship, life’s only Way

Think of heaven and Hell

Believe in Jesus Christ today

Everything! Will be well.....

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.
