Mocking God.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

What’s happening to today’s church?

Some Shepherds of The Few

They’re more involved in gold research

Than sinners birth anew


Christ said such things would not be odd

Prophets would fall or stray

Having a spirit, not of God

They’ll walk their selfish way


Telling stories singing sweet songs

Teachers will teach of vice

They’ll dare to speak of right and wrong

Beginning and ending nice


To keep their churches proudly large

Not share their flock with Fire

For this, for that, they’ll stand a charge

To fill their heart's desire


The devil thrives, with those will share

Who’ll preach and teach a lie

They’ll prosper here and everywhere

Few discovering why


Someone has need, to tell these

To warn and let them know

Seek out God’s face on bended knees

For Heaven’s Way to go


Sheep with The Holy Ghost inside

Will know The Truth first hand

Will heed The Lord, and through Him guide

Toward The Promised Land


God loves the thief deceivers all

Murderers liars too

But those who love such things will fall

When Jesus claims His few….

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.
