Two Thousand Years Ago.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


2000 years ago Christ Jesus came

Messiah! God’s Living Son

Born of mankind, unveiling shame

Salvation to be won

 

Leaving His Throne, Father behind

All that He was on High

To live, to serve, reveal mankind

No sinful soul need die

 

God’s Son Himself would take the blame

Teach unforgiving, Love

Set free from death, Hell’s torturing flame

With Him to rise above

 

Believe or not Life’s Truth is here

Christ’s BLOOD paid ALL the cost

Repentant sinners, need not fear

Love’s crown will not be lost

 

Seek Salvation, follow not fools

Grip fast, when Truth takes hold

Stand firm by faith, where obedience rules

As sheep within a fold

 

Humility’s not unlike gold

Silver’s a tongue unsure

Facts will remain, where Truth is told

Jesus is! The Cure

 

How much longer before The Cloud?

Before the church takes flight?

When bride and Groom will be endowed

In Love’s eternal Light

 

Does not God’s Word unveil these things?

Prophets, Apostles say

Salvation speaks on angel wings

Revealing Heaven’s Way…..

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.
