Let Women Preach.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


†††† Let women preachÖ..

By grace through faith we stand reborn

Blessed males blessed females too

Able to see The Spiritís dawn

And join the chosen few

Let women preach that all may see

In Christ weíre all the same

Did Christ not set both; genders free?

Is this not why He came?

Are women not to spread Godís word?

Is this not Heavenís plan?

Should man believe it quite absurd?

Though Jesus said they can

The face of God we need to seek

Not reason how it looks

Through The Holy Ghost man should speak

Not preach from worldly books

If in the church we sit in doubt

If still you fail to see

Ask Jesus what itís all about

Through wisdom each is free

Best seek His face whilst still you may

Seek Truth to understand

From women too God shows The Way

When in the Masterís hand

What man may say Iíve little care

Godís truth Iím looking for

If Christís not here Iíll go elsewhere

To find another door

One day you too; may walk inside

To find me full of cheer

Like me youíve come to join the bride

Of Him Iíve found so dear.....

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.
