The Tempter's Demise (1).....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


     The Tempter's Demise (1).....

Quite soon we’ll see the tempter die

The devil lose his crown

When Jesus’ cloud adorns the sky

When every knee must bow


In armour clad we’ll join life’s realm

A mass of brilliant light

Safely with Jesus at the helm

We’ll fight the final fight


We’ll fight the fight and never fail

We’ll fight with shield and sword

The tempter bound will land in jail

Through fire’s eternal cord


We need to stand The Saviour true

God’s hill in Christ ascend

Partaking there of Heaven’s Dew

All righteousness defend


Who seek and find life’s living Way

On Heaven’s Wind to ride

Will soar before the youngest day

Beyond the last divide


Endless will then the tempter burn

Endless his painful cry

With those who fail from hell to turn

Before in sin they die


The tempters strong; through what we give

When from The Truth we slide

When straying from God’s way to live

Through whom we’ve let inside


Though demons tempt on hill and dale

Cross-rivers land and sea

Yet those with faith will never fail

To see the tempter flee..…P.T.O…..

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.
