Pointing To Jesus Christ.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Since Adam’s time and Abraham’s

Man would be free of sin

Through pigeons, bulls sacrificed lambs

Forgiveness was to win

 

For blood; contains the force of life

Without, no flesh can live

No beast, nor bird, could end man’s strife

Enabling to forgive

 

Creator of all seen and unseen

The living God alone

No animal blood washed man clean

Nor for their sin atone

 

Still after all was said and done

Offerings were in vain

Deliverance could not be won

Man’s sin would still remain

 

For thousands of years, night and day

Praying on bended knees

What could man do, what could he say?

What would their God appease?

 

However much, man sacrificed

Heaven seemed deaf and blind

Till God Himself as Jesus Christ

Suffered for all mankind

 

Fathered by God of virgin birth

For all mankind to see

The Living One walking on earth

Would set His people free

 

As Lamb of God! Christ chose to die

To purchase and release

Through life’s aroma rising on high

God grants His children peace…..

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.
