Salvation's Lamp
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


            Salvation's Lamp

World sin has reached a shameful height

She’s Satan’s slave to lies

Rejecting God, life’s guiding Light

Whilst in her filth she dies


Bound tight within the darkest jail

In fetters stout and strong

As Satan’s whore, she’ll always fail

To sing Salvation’s song


But who can tell her of her plight?

What deed can make her see?

Who can convey Salvation’s might?

To set her children free


The word of God reveals so well –Isa.60:1-

When free from wayward sin

We too; can save a child from hell

Through Heaven’s Lamp within


God’s Holy Ghost reveals unseen

His Word sets free one’s soul

His Flame will purge each soul unclean

Hindering from our goal


For man born once, has twice to die –Rev.20:6

So is The Lord’s decree –Gen.3:19

But who born twice through Christ on high –Jn.11:26

Die once no grave to see –Rev.21:8


Who yet today is not reborn

Drunk on demonic wine

Allow the Light of Jesus’ dawn

Bid Heaven’s Lamp to shine


Allow the world to see the glow

Allow God’s Son to reign

Allow His awesome power flow

Until He comes again.....

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.
