The Hope Of Glory.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

With Heaven’s glory in one’s heart

The hope of life will dwell

Allowing by grace a brand new start

To free from death and hell


Through faith we have! God’s Guarantee

Through faith our place is won

Through grace granted to you and me

Believing in God’s Son


Not from outside must Christians grow

When Christ has set us free

From inside spirit’s outsideflow

So those yet lost may see  


No longer do I wonder why

With doubt behind my eyes

For when Christ died so then did I

That with Him I may rise


The mystery of our Father’s plan

The secret Paul revealed

Life’s Promise given mortal man

Through Jesus tightly sealed


The Hope of Glory’s mine and yours

Life’s crown of finest gold

The Key to open Heaven’s Doors

As Christ The Saviour told


Let no one become contrary

Stand firm with renewed mind

Of doubting buffoons be wary

For such are lost and blind


We’ll live no more with hearts of stone

Within the maddening crowd

When Jesus comes to claim His own

We’ll join Him in the cloud…..

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.
