Beware of Wolves
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

     Beware of wolves

Beware of wolves in sheep disguise

Disciples of deceit

The devil seeks to spread his lies

Amongst the Lord’s elite


No child of God can act the fool

Treat church as though a game

No priest receives the highest stool

To sport with Jesus’ name


Some try God’s holy priest to feign

Recite salvation’s law

But only preach for worldly gain

A job; and nothing more


Of God; from books they’ve sought to learn

World knowledge to consume

With this, in vain they seek to turn

Man’s desert into bloom


Saying they’ve come to spread the light

To dig and plough the soil

Up high they’ll stand in robes of white

Without a drop of oil


Although they’ve failed the Master’s call

Believing all is well

While deeper still from grace they’ll fall

Before the gates of hell


They’ll preach God’s word the crowd to please

Hoping their house to fill

But only priests on humble knees

May find the Father’s will


Anointed has a priest to be

With oil from Jesus’ hand

For only then God’s sheep will see

And truly understand.....

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.
