Hear The Bible Speak.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Behold the splendour of life’s King

Throughout bible pages

Dictated, transcribed everything

Through The Rock of Ages


Watch truth; unfold, complete and bare

Each fact, open its door

Hear God Himself declare

Like no one has before


Witness, The Father’s love received

Observe, salvation’s light

Inspect evidence, long tightly sealed

Ere time has reached its height


Now; is the time, here the place

Let patience head now bow

Let blessings, rain down Heaven’s grace

Drink of life’s water now


Come smell, taste, eat daily life’s bread

Observe, divine glory

Truth, now raising the walking dead

Hear God tell His story


See how Christ Jesus, came to birth

The essence, of life’s plan

Why as a Lamb, He came to earth

Why God; walked as man


Scrutinise, each page completely

Emphatically sure

Although sometimes quite discreetly

Where danger knocks the door


Be shrewd as snakes, wise as a dove

Beware of fools and beast

Let God’s Spirit guide above

To life’s eternal feast…..

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.
