There Is a Hell
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

    There is a hell

Delusion declares life is well

Once dead there’s nothing more

So fools assume there is no hell

And seek the devil’s door


Each one that Satan has enticed

May lose The Way to live

Yet those accepting Jesus Christ

Will God their sin forgive


Only Jesus; Jesus alone

Can take away the shame

Can melt the heart now made of stone

And save us from the flame


For Jesus’ blood has set us free

To God we’re flawless jewels

His smiling face in Truth we’ll see

Whilst hell remains for fools


For souls in hell there’s no appeal

Atonement’s far too late

Do not be fooled the devil’s real

And wants to share his fate


The bible’s true, God cannot lie

Though countless live in doubt

One day they’ll know the reason why

In hell they’ll cry and shout


Though Satan’s yield grows sleek and rife

Most Heaven’s Way ignore

Eternity’s a fact of life

Where death is but the door


When Jesus knocks to come inside

When Satan’s at your gate

Beware to whom you open wide

For you; decide your fate!....

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.
