The Kingdom
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

             The Kingdom

God's Kingdom now is plain to see

The Truth of second birth

Granted to us by Royal Decree

Flowing throughout the earth                Lk.13:21


Some wonder what it's all about.

Why life becomes us strange

Why each new day brings fear and doubt?

And why there's little change?


We can't give up, or think God slow

He's faithful, wise and true

The Wind blows where it wills to blow

And God knows what to do


Most step by step the change takes place

Once, Jesus Christ, we meet

Like Enoch, Moses, face to face

Or whiling at His feet


In them, true faith begins to rise

Who'll hunger now and thirst                     Isa.58:-

The Truth will open wide their eyes

Who'll put The Saviour first


Who''ll love The Lord with all their might?

Who'll love their neighbour too!

To these, will dawn God's Guiding Light

With love as morning dew


We feel inside, we know He's there

The promised surging Spring

We drink God's Spirit deep in prayer

When Jesus praise we sing


Who'll suffer now, receive so much               Ro.5:3

Through patience, comes the dawn

In Jesus love, His healing touch

Through faith; become reborn .....Michael P. Johnson

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.
