Like A Spider.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Like spiders on a silky thread

A lion with its prey

The devil stalks the walking dead

His demons lead astray

 

So seems the nature of things

Nights when shadows creep

Evil appears on eagle wings

While the church is asleep

 

Countless souls the devil’s won

Bound tight in chains of lust

Now less and less seek out God’s Son

While faith just gathers dust

 

The church must help God’s children live

As soldiers of The Lord

Take through Christ the initiative

Together with the sword

 

Take command of each situation

Still wary of the foe

Take back our shameful nation

And see God’s power flow

 

For will The Lord not stand us by

When faith we take to hand

While His creatures fail, fall and die

Throughout each blessed land

 

We can’t allow these things my friend

Together as one man

Arise and shine and put an end

To each demonic plan

 

United through The Holy Ghost

In harmony above

Bring defeat on the filthy host

In Jesus’ strength and love.....    Like spiders on a silky thread

A lion with its prey

The devil stalks the walking dead

His demons lead astray

 

So seems the nature of things

Nights when shadows creep

Evil appears on eagle wings

While the church is asleep

 

Countless souls the devil’s won

Bound tight in chains of lust

Now less and less seek out God’s Son

While faith just gathers dust

 

The church must help God’s children live

As soldiers of The Lord

Take through Christ the initiative

Together with the sword

 

Take command of each situation

Still wary of the foe

Take back our shameful nation

And see God’s power flow

 

For will The Lord not stand us by

When faith we take to hand

While His creatures fail, fall and die

Throughout each blessed land

 

We can’t allow these things my friend

Together as one man

Arise and shine and put an end

To each demonic plan

 

United through The Holy Ghost

In harmony above

Bring defeat on the filthy host

In Jesus’ strength and love.....

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.
