What Is Truth?.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson

† † † † † †What Is Truth?.....

We know The Truth will always stand

That man invents his lie

But still too few can understand

A liarís doomed to die

Though Jesusí blood has paved The Way

Through death upon the tree

Most people think we have to pay

Salvation canít be free

Where are we from, why are we here?

What reason do we live?

If Christ should now on earth appear

What would we have to give?

The world believes thereís no way out

Wasting her life in sin

Flooding her childrenís minds with doubt

Helping the devil win

So what is truth and whatís a lie?

Whatís fact and make believe?

What futureís planned for you and I?

Can Satan still deceive?

Like aimless sheep we mill around

Swallowing Satanís lie

Seldom seeking the higher ground

Like lost blind fools we die

So from His throne Christ chose to part

To live and die on earth

So truth could dwell within manís heart

And guide to second birth

One need but ask for faith to see

For ears Godís Truth to hear

Repent; bend Jesus Christ our knee

And learn Godís name to fear.....

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.
