Who Can Fathom.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Since Jesus lived, as God’s Lamb died

God’s grace and love stands real

Like love; life’s light is not to hide

But by God’s grace to feel

 

Who can fathom true love’s power?

The richness, of God’s grace

Imagine life’s judgement hour

When seeing Jesus’ face

 

Still, most live life lost and deceived

Stumble, like lost sheep blind

Where ignorant acts, sorely grieved

Who suffered for mankind

 

Whilst the starving, continue seeing

This world’s, ferocious wars

With a meagre few agreeing

Slow closing true life’s doors

 

Faithless they wander, faithless they die

More hopeless, journey still

Ignorant of grace, calling on high

Seekers; of true love’s will

 

Though bibles are found everywhere

Countries are plagued with strife

Forbidding countless that would share

The facts, guiding to life

 

Christ won’t return till all have heard

Till hearts learn truth to see

Till Jesus Christ! God’s living Word

Has set His last lamb free

 

So lies are sown, fools flourish wild

Devils spread gross deceit

Hindering those, who’d be reconciled

To rise with God’s elite ….,

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.
