Be Not Ignorant.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Who without Christ can understand?

They’re blind and walking dead

Deaf, deceived in the devil’s hand

Unmindful being led


While churches slumber, piously sleep

While docile sheep still die

While golden wheat barely few reap

Watching the world drift by


Ignorant of their Saviour’s

Oblivious to life

Still steeped in sin dying in shame

Walking deceived, in strife


While those with knowledge idly sit

Like lazy common tears

Watching the few do their bit

Seen by The One who cares


So knowledge alone won’t get there

Nor wisdom however grand

God’s chosen few will true life share

Within His Promised Land


So best wake up, get on your feet

All who God’s speaking to

If you a smiling God will meet

Do as His chosen few


Don’t sit around with cap and gown

On ornate seats of gold

Only a few will gain life’s crown

By doing as we’re told


Let wisdom teach us to obey

Let knowledge direct our path

Let obedience escort life’s way

And flee God’s pending wrath….

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.
