The Fight Is on
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


The fight is on for every soul

Where Satan seeks a life

Where serving Christ will make one whole

Ignorance is a knife


Where those in sin may think they're free

They go about their will

But all are blind and fail to see

That Satan's out to kill


For devil has a job to do

Demons do very well

They come to steal from me and you

Paving the way to hell


In darkness though God sends His Light

To guide and show the way

That all in Him may put to flight

The one who'll lead astray


The battle field is in the mind

Where Satan tries his ruse

But Jesus, teaches how to bind

How in His name to loose


We bind each evil thought that tries

To keep us from life's crown

We loose from all satanic lies

That sends us crashing down


Life's battle though is only won

When first The Truth we've seen

When in the strength of Christ God's Son

We seek alone to lean


But those who live who die in sin

In shame they're bound to lose

While Jesus' flock will surely win

The time is now to choose....?    Michael P. Johnson

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.
