Bonding with Christ
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

† † † †Bonding with Christ

What barren waste we leave behind

What stench of rot and shame

When lightís received while walking blind

Accepting Godís Flame

The world canít see nor can she feel

The Spirit of The Lord

His unveiled truth remains unreal

Until the judgement sword

But God, the one and only wise

Reveals The One Way out

His Lamb, His Son to open eyes

And nullify oneís doubt

Through Christ we hear Salvationís call

The King, most still reject

But just like Paul, the scales will fall ĖAc.9:18

From all of Godís elect

Through Jesusí Light we first relate

Through changes formed inside

Our hearts reach out to Heavenís Gate

Br grace stands open wide

The Holy Ghost brings joy and peace

Brings love unknown before

Brings life brings strength never to cease

Beyond Salvationís Door

Despondency will bow its head

Despair will shrink from sight

Doubt will decrease till stone cold dead

Within Godís living Light

Released like tightly wound up springs

Like torrents running wild

The bride will rise as if on wings

Through Jesus reconciled Ö

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.
