Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

� � � God's Righteous Reward.....2

Behind the shadows of the mind �1Pe.1:13

Along life�s winding path �Mt.7:13+Lk.3:5

A foolish thought can make one blind �1Co.1:18

Can furnish Heaven�s wrath �Ro.8:5-8

Satanic seed comes free with choice

As wisdom�s path can tell

For those who follow Satan�s voice �Jn.10:3-5

For those who flee from hell

Temptations are the devil�s bait

Laid wide in traps of crime

Some thousands of years lie in wait

Until the proper time �Lk.4:13

From trials of life is no one free �Jn.16:33

As Christ Himself has shown �Ac.13:33

Although a child on bended knee �Deut.4:7

Can tilt the devil�s throne �2Co.10:4

With cunning; Satan baits his snares �Mt.22:15

Along temptation�s way �Mt.4:6

Heaven allows we buy such wares �Mt.16:26

Though many fall or stray �Mt.27:5

Deceit will maim, destroy the heart �1Pe.2:1

While doubt obstructs The Light �Jn.1:5

Unforgiveness keeps grace apart �Mt.6:14-15

Factions make hard the fight �Gal.5:19-21

We wrestle much with word and thought �Eph.6:12

Sampling Satan�s weed �Ecc.9:11

Even the strong are easily caught �Jdg.16:1-

When on such fruit they feed �1Sa.15:1-35

However great the web he�ll spin �Ps.91:1-16

How deep he�ll dig the hole �2Co.2:11

In Jesus Christ we�re bound to win �Jn.15:7

Life�s crown and blood washed soul �1Sa.17:47..

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.
