Through Fire Inside.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Man’s death for sin is Heaven’s wage

Promised with guarantee

Yet perfect blood, a secret page

Spiritual souls will see


Confusing, to the man of lies

Devoid of Heaven’s Breath

Long concealed from demonic eyes

Till Jesus conquered death


Freedom from death, from hell’s fire

Through faith in Jesus Christ

Once righteousness floods one’s desire

As self is sacrificed


When The Holy Ghost dwells within

God’s fire burns inside                        Mt.3:11

Convicting shame, consuming sin

Seven times duly tried                          Ps.12:6


But who’ll such trials endure?

Who’ll stay salvation’s course?

Till champions stand fast and mature

Suffering no remorse


Trusting The Father at His word

Their Saviour’s mighty sword

Living, walking by what they’ve heard

From Christ their risen Lord


Through faith passing their Saviour’s test

Through honesty revered

Knowing serving they’ve done their best

Heaven’s way is cleared


Life’s price is paid, their battle’s won

The devil’s fought in vain

So true life’s crown through Christ God’s Son

When Jesus comes again…..

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.
