No Time for Fools
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson

††† No time for fools††††††††††

The wise conform to God to live

While fools blindly rebel

Rejecting all Christ died to give

To save their souls from hell


Wisdom can see Salvationís grace

Can hear atonementís voice

While fools will turn from God their face

In darkness to rejoice

Why play the clown and act like fools?

Why reap eternal wrath?

Be wise become redemptionís tools

Along Salvationís path

Did Christ not come to open eyes?

Set prisoners free from jail?

Does He not hate a childís demise?

When still like fools they fail?

Thereís no more time the fool to play

Instead we should be wise

Accept Godís Lamb as Lord today

Cast off your church disguise

Without religious pomp and airs

Traditionís ancient rules

For though Godís rain comes down on tares

Thereíll be no life for fools

Godís judgement day draws ever nigh

The bride! Heíll take in hand††††††

Leaving behind rebels to die

Before The Promised Land

Reject the devil and his lies

Seek Jesusí warm embrace

Allow Godís Word now make you wise

And find in hell no place.....

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.
