It's Not the Crowd
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

††††† Itís not the crowd

Oneís sinful heart dying in shame

Condemns the precious soul

Though Jesus died to take the blame

To save and make us whole

Loveís holiness, Godís gentle force

Convicts the heart of sin

Peaceful bringing swaying remorse

That changes lives within

But still a crowd we seek for peace

Instead of Christ above

Believing more will bring release

And give us strength and love

Yet who can fool with life today

Thinking they understand

Calmly despise the cross and say

Iím safe in Jesusí hand

This life we live is not our own

But Jesusí Christ Godís Son

He bought it when He died alone

His Fatherís will be done

Of any crowd we should beware

Not seldom are they wrong

Many choosing with them to share††††

Have sung their final song

In crowds can dwell such evil deeds

Can house so much debris

We cannot eat demonic weeds

Eternal life to see

Resist the crowd, let wisdom reign

In Jesus place your trust

Along in Christ weíll live again

When crowds return to dust.....

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.
