God's Spirit Within.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

Learning of God, joining Life’s few

From sin and shame abstaining

You in Jesus, God’s Christ in you

Life’s King of kings reigning


Who could have thought, who could have seen?

Heaven watching above

Enabling Grace to intervene

With such amazing Love


Salvation dawns, on eagles wing

Causing tears to flow

Awakening heart and soul to sing

One’s inner man to glow


Whilst in this world,  remaining blind

Stumbling, in darkest night

Why you, why me, from all mankind?

Are walking in The Light


Are we not others, meant to tell?

Facts of Cavalry's Tree

Jesus conquering, saving from hell

Setting completely free


Is The Father’s Ghost within you?

Does Jesus reign as Lord?

Guiding, bringing to birth anew

Free of the devil’s horde


Do you agree as well as I

This Gospel must be told

Man’s birthed to live, never to die

But dwell on streets of gold


Beyond this world of vast ordeals

Where no one wears a frown

When Love ‘s reward Heaven reveals

Life’s ring and golden crown…..

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.
