The Lying Devil
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


The cunning devil’s fighting well

Flooding the earth with lies

Leading the masses into hell

Clouding gullible eyes

 

While darkness reigns shadows grow tall

Technology runs wild 

Many will stumble churches may fall  

Through compromise defiled

 

Evil weapons are everywhere

Vast harbingers of death

Buffeting souls polluting air

Poisoning children’s breath

 

With heart and soul in disarray

With but a few set free

The world like fools, like sheep astray

Still fails The Truth to see

 

This is Satan! This is his plan

Such are his covert ways

Lying cheating and killing man

Prolonging thus his days

 

But praise The Lord these days will end

His powerful arm will fail

To Christ his knees will surely bend

Before he lands in jail

 

Yet who’ll admit their lives of shame?

Lift up their wayward eyes

Receive God’s Light in Jesus’ name

And turn from Satan’s lies          

 

Who will believe The living Christ?

Accept God’s risen Son

Believe God’s Lamb was sacrificed

That victory may be won…..

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.
