When Knowledge Dawns
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


† † †When Knowledge Dawns

Through self; to God few sinners turn

Through pride, few knees will bend

Convicting Fire inside must burn

Heaven by grace will send

Remove; the devilís nice disguise

Render to God whatís real

Expose the filth to holy eyes

The naked truth reveal

Be wise, acknowledge right and wrong

Beware of Satanís snares

Refuse to sing the devilís song

Renounce demonic wares

When faith takes captive all unknown

When living hope is seen

When Truth is sat upon His throne

The church is Jesusí queen

Till then His arms are open wide

Weíll hear Salvation cry

Weíll see through faith to walk inside

To dwell in peace on high

Receive Godís Light in heart and soul

Allow lifeís Flame burn bright

Have faith in Christ fulfil lifeís goal

Accept your robe of white

When faith develops in Jesusí hand

When truth appears to hold

When grace is given to understand

Reside within the fold

For even faith will bend the knee

Once knowledge comes to reign

All this, manís eyes oneís soul will see

When Jesus comes again.....

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.
