The World Still Calls
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

††† The world still calls

Though born again with Heavensí Flame

Through Godís own blood set free

Many like fools return to shame

To die by Godís decree

Children are crying night and day

Seeking The Fatherís face

Praying for those whoíve gone astray

Losing Salvationís grace

Weíre grieved, to see the fallen die

Praying before Godís throne

Eternity will hear their cry

Godís blessings still unknown

Though saved! Still many souls lose out

Opening Satanís door

Flooding their precious souls with doubt

Breaking Godís every law

Yet Jesusí eyes have all in sight

His ears hear every prayer

Though some may fail to see the Light

The truth is always there

On Christ Godís Word they need to feel

His love, through you and I

Through Heavenís Dove lifeís Holy Seal

The Pledge of God on high

Salvationís arm is never short

For those who God would fear

The church must spread Christís true report

The fallen souls to hear

Godís holy word breaks every chain

Brings forth lifeís guiding Light

Will raise the dead, give birth again

To stand and win the fight....

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.
