No Tainted Breath
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

        No tainted breath

Life is received through Jesus’ breath

That one day must return

When all creation samples death

When sin condemned will burn


No tainted breath will God receive

No shame in light can dwell

Alone the few who’ll Christ believe

Escape the curse of hell


When land and sea give up their dead

When bride and Groom unite

Eternity will raise her head

When death loses its bite


For sinful souls with hearts of stone

Hell’s curse will then begin

Ordained for wayward flesh and bone

The price of wilful sin


The few adorned with robes of light

Who’s debts Christ Jesus paid

Will rise will shine, with great delight

And life that cannot fade


Although we know flesh days will cease

When joining Christ on high

God’s judgement just around the bend

Will see the masses cry


No stench in Heaven can reside

No filth God’s praise can sing

Just “Holy” breath may dwell inside

The palace of The King


Yet true salvation’s here and now

Regardless of one’s crime

Who’ll come to Christ, repent and bow

Will live beyond all time.....

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.
