A Seed Must Die
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

† A seed must die

Though Satan now must eat the dust††††† Gen3:14

Many in him yet place their trust

Spirit and flesh will always war††††††††††††† Gen.3:15

When one remains the devilís whore

No shameful deed can God abide

From sinful souls, His face Heíll hide

Though in His heart God loves us all

He hates to see His children fall

Godís Seed was nailed upon the tree

Christ chose to die for man to††††††† .††††††††† Rev.1:5

His sinless flesh would not decay†††††††††††† Ps.16:10

But rise to show mankind the way

A seed must die within the earth†††††††††††††† Jn.12:24

Selfís sacrifice to giving birth†††††††††††††††††† 1Co.15:35-49

Upon such love selfless and true

The Lord pours forth as Heavenís Dew

Itís not by might; we win Godís grace

Nor through power, weíll see His face

The Holy Ghost meets every need††††††††††† Zec.4:6

To be in Jesus living seed

A dragon though, will try one day†† †††††††††Rev.12:4

To steal the womanís seed away

While no one walks in Christ alone

Godís hand will snatch us to His throne††† Rev.12:5

The seed to life is here to stay†††††††††††††††††††† Jn.3:9

From Jesusí hand weíll never stray†††††††††††† Jn.10:28

Who live to Christ and not to shame

Will surely rise in Jesusí name

Though cleansed with Flame we too must die††††††††† Ro.6:3

Godís righteousness to magnify††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Ro.6:1

For God in us has souls to save

Who like His Son, will see no grave.....††††††

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.
