When Jesus Came
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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

† † † †When Jesus Came

When Jesus came to take our load

To heal to set man free

What wondrous joy He then bestowed

When Satan bent the knee

Authority; firm in Jesusí hand

Obedience, brought Lifeís dawn

Through grace, The Truth we understand

When in His name reborn

What virtue came from loveís embrace?

What treasure, did God outpour?

What great unknown is yet to face?

Beyond Salvationís Door

Perhaps your walk is void of Light

Your song is Satan taught

And though hellís gates are plain in sight

Of God you give no thought

For such as you! ďThe TruthĒ was sent

For such as me! He came

We need but from our sin repent

Through faith in Jesusí name

Yet even if we start to sink

Face thoughts of death and hell

Donít let the devil make you think

Heaven canít make things well

Alone Godís Lamb was void of sin

Lived free of filth and crime

All else have let the devil win

At least from time to time

But fear of God must first return

When peace neglects the soul

Allow Godís living Flame to burn

In those who fail the goal.....

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.
