Have I Got News for New
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

   “Have I got news for you”

“A few may heed Salvation’s call

May drink from Heaven’s Well

Countless will fail countless will fall

Into the flames of hell


Not all who come will meet the grade

Their robes again they’ll spoil

Their light one day will come to fade

Because they have no oil


Wake up! And see what must be done

Arise! Come now to me

Although your light could soon be gone

Receive “The Oil” that’s free


Revive yourself on solid ground

On Truth you need to feed

In fellowship True Oil is found

With Christ; life’s Holy Seed


You sit at home, so sleek and grand

Feeling safe and secure

Failing to see you’ve built on sand

A house that won’t endure


The plan of life to you has come

My Word to set you free

You play the fool you act so dumb

As though too blind to see


“But God is love!” I hear you say

Of course; this statement’s true

But those who fail to walk my Way

Have I got news for you!


Take heed my child to all I’ve said

Believe and understand

Obey! And I will raise the dead

To reign as always planned”.....

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.
