Just Like a Spark
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


“How can mankind in God believe?
Or Jesus’ virgin birth
That Satan kills and will deceive
Each living soul on earth

Did God’s Son die on Calvary Hill?
Nailed crudely on a tree
How could it be His Father’s will?
He’d rise for all to see

How can we know, these things are true?
Christ’s God and makes us whole?
He’ll come inside of me and you?
To heal and save one’s soul

How can we know we’re in the dark?
That one is of the night?
You say God comes just like a spark
A Flame and guiding Light”

“You say, of self; this can’t be done
Many; in vain, have tried
But through The Power of God’s Son
He’ll truly dwell inside”

It sounds far fetched, I know too well
But friend; I tell no lie
When sinners leave this world for hell
They’ll beg in vain to die

For sinner and saint these words are true
Believe in what they say
God’s willing my friend to save you
If you but ask today

The place is right, the time is now!
Salvation’s arms are wide
In faith, you only need to bow
And God!! Will come inside” .

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.
