Sin Is Satan's Knife
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

††Sin is Satanís knife

Who play the fool along lifeís path

Who live their life to sin

Are sure to reap Godís coming wrath

When shame remains within

Godís peace eludes the sinful mind

Conflict floods the soul

Selfishness makes oneís spirit blind

To lifeís eternal goal

Can no one make this torment cease?

These restless nights depart?

Can no one lead a soul to peace?

And calm a troubled heart?

Once Satan has us in his hand

For filth weíll lust and thirst

When finally sin takes full command

To death and hell weíre cursed

The devilís out to take your will

To rob and steal your life

The liar comes to cheat and kill

And sin, is Satanís knife

Yet we can rob him of his coup

If sin we would deny

When through Godís grace we start anew

When to ourselves we die

We must believe in Jesus blood

Completely turn from sin

Resolve to live The Way we should

Through Heavenís Gift within

The Holy Ghost Spirit of light

Through whom weíll pass each test

Receive lifeís garments pure and white

And find eternal rest.....

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.
