Both Sides Are Crucial.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


If the church wants to serve God well

Of things she needs to speak

Life’s Way to Heaven, death and hell

Minimum once a week

 

Life’s living truth, death’s deadly facts

From the old books and new

How the church formed in the book of acts

How Jacob birthed the Jew

 

Each testament wears a title

Yet both direct the same

To the Jew and church are vital

Regardless of their name

 

What’s crucial, in the new one

Is mirrored, from the old

That Isaac whispered, to his son

The gospels, echo bold

 

More than once, God speaks of things

Meant for when times draw near

Now more and more as if on wings

They suddenly appear

 

Not left, not right, look straight ahead

Regarding where you are

Ponder on what the bible’s said

Life’s answer, won’t be far

 

When The Rock is one’s foundation

Instruction, don’t forget

Though man, though city, or nation

The finish will be correct

 

Remember the cross of Jesus

Death’s curse to Adam made

The Savour’s blood released us

When all man’s debts were paid.....

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.
