In Christ We See
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


†† †In Christ we see

The devil is the lying cheat

Heíd steal the Fathersí love

Heíd rob the world of all belief

That Christ is Lord above

But since Iíve heard the Fatherís voice

Iíve heard my Saviourís call

The Truth Iíve made my lifelong choice - Jn.14:6

And trust Him not to fall

My whole dark life was full of sin

My faith was Satanís lies

But now Godís Flame burning within

Has severed all hellís ties

Through Jesusí blood Iím pure and clean

The Truth has set me free

What yet the world pollutes unseen

These eyes through grace can see

My shameful ways have taken wing

In me no filth is found

Salvationís song I now can sing

En route to higher ground

I see the road to Heavens door

I see eternal peace

How Satan lost in me the war

Now life will never cease

Iíve found The Truth, Godís perfect will

Iíve drunk Salvationís wine

On Jesusí flesh Iíll eat until - Mt.26:26

Lifeís secrets all are mine

Iíll live in faith walking in †light

All doubt Iíve cast aside

My aimís a robe of purest white

And life as Jesusí bride.....

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.
