Deceived, Lost & Dying.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Deceived; the world revolves in doubt

Has closed to God her door

Ignorant, to what life’s about

What Jesus death, was for?


Hearing, of what religion’s done

Reading, of wars profound

Sinners can now be seldom won

To rise to higher ground


“What has the church for me,” they say

“What can your Jesus do?

What use is worship, or to pray?

 What has God done for you?”


“Why are the living condemned to die?

Why is so much disease?

I see no Heaven in the sky

No one to bow my knees”


So every day goes on and on

Refusals loud and plain

Preaching, teaching of Christ God’s Son

Seems daily more in vain


Fewer believe in Paradise

In demons, Satan and hell

Fewer accept Christian advice

Regardless of what we tell


No one fears death anymore

Though steeped in stinking sin

Though most now are breaking the law

Profusely with a grin


Would Jesus die the death of fools?

Would His servants do the same?

Who’d live, suffer, die by life’s rules

Set in Christ Jesus’ name…..

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.
