Embrace the Love
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


†††† Embrace the love

From Satanís cup the masses drink

Eating from off his plate

Gorging until their houses sink

Beneath their sinful weight

For freedom! God, revealed His love

For eyes still blind to see

Thus Jesus chose from high above

To die for you and me

Yet from this fact the masses stray

Foolish and worldly wise

In selfish lust theyíll drift hellís way

Deceived by Satanís lies

So few escape demonic reign

So few drink Heavenís Dew

So few will rise to come again

Through faith and birth anew

Receive The Spirit Jesus gives

His love forever more

Embrace His death, the truth He lives

Embrace Him as The Door

The Door to love for you and I

The Door still open wide

Through which to live never to die

But reign as Jesusí bride

God knows the price He had to pay

Torment He chose to bear

For those whoíll stand to those whoíll stay

He promises to share

His love His peace, His joy to live

Fit for His faithful queen

More treasures He alone can give

That no manís eye has seen.....

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.
