Truth Rejecting.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


Foolish, are countless rejecting

God’s written word, to life

While somewhere, somehow expecting

Something will end their strife

 

Seeing Jesus, as a story

A tale spread far and wide

Perchance for fame and glory

He lived and somehow died

 

While God and devils are myths tor most

Heaven and hell’s a lie

Children are scared by a holy ghost

Who’ll lift them in the sky

 

Superstitions are everywhere

As false religions rise

Deceiving people here and there

Before man’s worldly eyes

 

But still a few have Jesus heard

God’s miracles have seen

Have read The Father’s written word

With man to intervene

 

Will the death of Jesus not suffice?

Do sceptics thirst for more?

Do they need a greater sacrifice?

To close death’s gaping jaw

 

Though Christ declared, death’s lost its sting

His stripes paid ailment's price

Salvation’s found beneath His wing

Please follow my advice

 

Into God’s presence bend your knee

Declare your heart’s appeal

Remaining there till grace sets free

You feel the love that’s real…..

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.
