                       Arise

How should The Father's will be done?

How can we live a lie?

How can we say we know God's Son?

Yet see His children die '                                  Hos.4:6

 

We comfort self with daily prayer '                    Lk.18:11

In closets snug and still

We know The Truth, but fail to share

Believing others will                                           Gal.6:2

 

Too oft we say we're safe at last

There's nothing left to do                                   Am.6:1

Wiped clean is all my evil past

In Christ, I'm born anew

 

For if God's Kingdom's truly come                             Mt.12:28

If Christ is yours and mine '                                       2Co.4:6

How can our tongue on earth be dumb?                 1Co.9:16

When God commands  to shine                               Mt.5:16+Isa,60:1

 

However weak however slight                                Ex.3:11

How small we think to be                                        Nu.13:33+Jdg.6:8

We all; in Christ must shine our light                     Ro.12:6

That all the world should see                                Lk.8:16

 

But who's to see when nothing said?                 Mt.28:16-20

If we; the blind don't tell                                      Ac.1:8

Who'll help to raise the walking dead?               Ac.20:9-12

To save the lost from hell?                                Jude 23

 

Did Christ not say the works we/ll do?

Within The Father's will                                     Php.2:13

Through faith accomplished by the few

Will yet be greater still 'Jn.14:12

 

So rise and shine in Jesus name                        Isa.60:1

Confront the common foe                                  1 Sa.17:45

Obey and see God's mighty Flame                   Jos.1:7

Reveal The Way to go....Michael P. Johnson    Ex.13:21

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.
