Has Jesus Left Us?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


       Has Jesus left us?

Did God repent salvation’s plan? –Heb.9:28

Has day turned into night? –Jn.9:4

Has Heaven so rejected man? –Gen.6:6

The Dove has taken flight –Eph.4:30


The world plays much the devil’s fool

So few seek Jesus’ face

Backsliding seems to be the rule –2Ti.2:3

Perhaps it’s end of grace?


Where else have all the blessings gone?

Where are God’s gifts to see?

Where can The Holy Ghost be won?

Promised to sinners free


Has Jesus left us in the lurch?

While hearts remain as stone!

Since Godly fear has left the church

Leaving the bride alone?


Why else would saintly increase fail?

Why is there so much pain?

Why jam-packed is the devil’s jail?

Why must yet sickness reign?


Unless we rise to do our bit

Unless churches agree

Unless to God we all submit –Jas.4:7

Hell’s devil’s just won’t flee


Yet if life’s war is to be won

We need to stand one man

We need to seek God’s risen Son

And do the best we can


Jesus will surely do the rest

He’ll see how hard we try

Then when as bride, once more we’re blessed

We’ll know the reason why..…

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.
