Truth, Truth,Truth.....

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


Sweet sermons alone, life’s crown won’t bring

Churches, can’t make one whole

Nor will heart moving, songs we sing

But truth; will feed man’s soul

 

Truth, of the living Jesus Christ

He and The Father’s One

Facts, why God’s Lamb was sacrificed

True victory to be won

 

Truth, of the devil and his horde

Of Satan’s luring charms

The fact, God Son, life’s one true Lord

Will wrap us in His arms

 

Truth, of salvation’s thoughts inside

The King coming to reign

The plans some people try to hide

Festering in one’s brain

 

Truth, of the future our wicked past

Truth if our soul is clean

If Christ first, centre and last

Or is something in between?

 

What’s truth or deceit, fact or lie?

One must consider well

To rise with Christ, one’s self; must die

Or fear to end in hell

 

But while there’s hope, true life’s at hand

True faith calls out for grace

Trust; rips houses built on sand

Seeking The Father’s face

 

Truth; facts, God’s word stands true

His promises always real

Let’s do, as The Lord God tells us to

However, we may feel…..

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.
