Spread the Truth
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson

        Spread the Truth

Through Jesus’ bride in every land

God’s Truth can still be heard

Yet still some fail to understand

The meaning of The Word


Few doctrines stand as days of old

They’ll speak of God on high

But deeper truth is rarely told

And so God’s children die


Sermons are weak, too often dull

Like chaff within a breeze

Yet seek to keep their houses full

And so they preach to please


With sweetened words some twist and bend

They’ll sift God’s truth to fit

Speaking of things that won’t offend

To keep the few who’ll sit


So many come like walking dead

Their shepherds speak their mind

The rest but sing, may bow their head

Like children deaf and blind


But “ALL” in Christ receive some gift

To serve through talents free! –Ro.12:6

To comfort, guide, to help and lift

Christ’s name, the world to see


They’re not to hide as though in shame –Mt.5:15

No gift’s designed for fools

For when one’s used in Jesus’ name

They’re God’s almighty tools


Satan would rob, would cheat and kill

Would cheat would steal life’s crown

So spread The Truth, obey God’s will

And cast the devil down…..

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.
