The Book!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


† † † † † † † The Book!

Each generation lives in wait

Before the last divide

Where most, will share the devilís fate

A few as Jesusí bride

All who have lived, or ever will

Must learn to understand

Weíll face The Truth on judgement day

A book, within His hand

Godís book of life, is there for all

Each deed of love and shame

Whoíve failed to answer Jesus call

Whoíve lifted high His name

Then righteousness will scan each page

Will gauge, with line and rod

Will weigh precise, through every age

As says the mouth of God

So those like fools, selfishly blind

Who hear, yet disobey

Need now The living Truth to find

Before His judgement day

Some know; of God, of Christ The King

The reason why He died

Yet choose the devilís song to sing

Rejecting Christ as guide

When chaff is sifted from the wheat

All goats, divorced from sheep

The bride, will rise from Jesusí feet

The rest, will claim the deep

All in the book, whose names are found

Each soul, in Jesusí hand

Will walk as kings, on holy ground

And dwell Godís Promised Land..Ö

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.
