Are You Ready.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Are you ready to live forever?

Have you seen by grace the light?

Through faith in Christ’s endeavour

You’re clothed in brilliant white

 

Have you read God’s word, the bible yet?

Will you now begin today?

Trusting the truth, one won’t regret

When through Jesus we pray

 

For Jesus Christ is Heaven’s door

His blood is true life’s key

Eternity is guaranteed sure

Who bow to Him their knee

 

By faith and not by sight though

Believing Heaven’s word

Through which to live walk and grow

Practising what we’ve heard

 

There’s no mistake, the Bible's true

God’s word will never fail

Life’s Holy Promise will comfort you

Once Christ has paid your bail

 

Free of the beast and devil’s lot

At peace in grace to live

When time and tide’s gone to rot

Receive all God will give

 

Such as health, wealth, eternal life

Comfort and joy unknown

Free of tears, worrying, strife

With Jesus on the throne

 

First love The Lord love neighbours too

Give Jesus Christ your hand

Until returning to call you

Into your Promised Land…..

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.
