The Seed of Life
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

† † † † †The Seed of Life

The Truth is here to hear and read

To serve and make us whole

Lifeís dawn is like a mustard seed

God plants within oneís soul

Godís living Seed, does not come cheap ĖIsa.53:1-12

And yet completely free

When from† the tree Heís planted deep ĖJn.20:1-31

Inside of you and me

When Godís true Seed we have believed

Receives The Promised Dew!

The miracle; before conceived

Gives birth to life anew

As water, poured on desert land

Will sicker deep within

The unseen work by Jesusí hand

Will soon true growth begin

Building a hedge resisting hell

Achieving Heavenís will

We need to seek Salvationís Well

Our cup with truth to fill

We need to drink of Christ Godís Son

Acknowledge His Blood today

We need to drink till life is won

That fails to see decay

From Heavenís Bread we need to feed

Within Godís Vine take root

Allow His Flame consume hellís weed

And bear Salvation fruit

Obedience is the precious wine

Within Godís cup to pour

Escorting Truth, to life divine

Through Jesus, Heavenís Door.....†

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.
