A Word in Your Ear
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

††††† A word in your ear

Treasure, worth more than jewels and gold

Godís Word stands firm and sound

Bearing much fruit when freely told

Like seed in fertile ground

Mysteries of old, The Lord will share

His Holy Wind, will blow

The living Truth He will declare

Will be as virgin snow

Too long manís been the devilís tools

Deceived, twisting our mind

Robbing Godís Word, until like fools

We stagger round as blind

But when God pours His Morning Dew

When Christ revives the dust

With health true wealth weíll rise anew

When in His Word we trust

Godís same, created Heaven and earth

The same paves man The Way

The Truth will lead to second birth

And life without decay

Always, Godís Word remains the same

As true as days gone by

Healing saving in Jesusí name

Spoken through you and I

Although The Word weíve come to hear

Though Truth has been revealed

Too few have learned God to fear

And in Godís Christ are sealed

We must arise Christ flesh to eat

Consume The Truth Heíll give

Accept the wine at Jesus feet

Drink each our cup and live.....

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.
