An Outward Sign.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson

† † † † † An Outward Sign.....†

Such foolishness weíve come to share

The devil laughs in scorn

Even the Christian name we bear

Is oft unjustly worn

True Christian faith is not a trend

No whim, nor passing quirk

But God, to have as Lord and friend

With Jesus Christ at work

If mind and soulís not seen a change

If Fire; burns not inside

If Heavenís Word remains us strange

Hellís jaws are open wide

Pretence; is not a Christian song

Deceitís not Jesusí tune

Charade in truth cannot belong

The devilís mask to ruin

If manís to flee Godís pending wrath

Have peace and endless days

We need to walk Salvationís path

Changing oneís selfish ways

Instead, we live as hellís born drones

Doing as others do

Weíre whitewashed tomes to dead manís bones

If Christís not made us new

With class distinction still at large

Racism; wields its sword

Satan within is chief in charge

If Christ is not our Lord

The Truthís not hard to understand

Through sin, all flesh must die

Godís ruling comes with upheld hand

And God can never lie!.....

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.
