God's Truth Alone
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

† † † † † God's Truth Alone

The Truth can hurt can tear in two

Rip families apart

Yet what for some is hard to chew

Can heal a broken heart

Drink truth; Salvationís cup of grace

Accept the hand of love

Regard Godís servants face to face

He sends through Christ above

Even where wisdomís given free

Where lamps could shine so bright

Religious eyes fail oft to see

The truth so plain in sight

If truth today should raise its head

If lifeís to be conceived

Give thanks, and eat of Heavenís Bread

Let Jesus be received

Itís hard sometimes to seek true light

Where darkness wears disguise

But God sees all from Heavenís height

And makes His children wise

Too long man wears the devilís shroud

Living some foolish lie

Erring deceived amidst the crowd

Condemned with sin to die

Deception clouds both heart and mind

Makes drunk as sweet old wine

Makes deaf to truth, to wisdom blind

A cancer to the Vine

Whilst grace and truth can still be found

While fools from God would hide

Let wisdom lead to hallowed ground

Let Jesus turn the tideÖ..

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.
