Covenant Realised.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Then in a shed of Bethlehem

Upon a bed of hay

Where God His Lamb revealed to them

The Truth The Life The Way

 

The Word of God came down to earth

Becoming flesh and bone

As son of man! was given birth

To change man’s heart of stone

 

Through living stone, God seeks to build

A temple high and wide

Where soon with covenant fulfilled

With man! He’ll live inside

 

Till then He’d walk He’d talk and heal

Preach and teach throughout

Until the day He’d plant His Seal

Ridding His bride of doubt

 

As Abraham had done before

Pledging his son to die

Till Heaven saw his love was sure

A lamb would God supply

 

Nailing God’s Son upon a tree

Before man’s sinful eyes

Suffering death to set those free

Who through His blood would rise?

 

When countless join God’s chosen few

When trumpets sound out loud

Then Abraham and Moses too

Will join us in the cloud

 

According to salvation’s plan

The Lamb of God was killed

The covenant with mortal man

Is through God’s Christ fulfilled.....

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.
