Accept the Truth
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson

† † † † † Accept the Truth

Though Godís true prophets live today

Though Heavenís Word they bring

Speaking truth, revealing The Way

Through Christ their Lord and King

Not few believe Godís servant wrong

Not few stand back dismayed

Too long manís sung the devilís song

Through which the church has strayed

Religion has them tightly bound

Even with Truth so near

They fail to climb to higher ground

Although The Way is clear

Manís traditions are oft at fault

Religious pomp and pride

But seasoned with Godís righteous salt

His servants truth provide

Some scream and shout and laugh to scorn

Some criticize the light

Although they say theyíve been reborn

But yet The Truth they fight

Drinking religionís wayward brew

Brings oft a bleak result

Many think facts are quite untrue

Godís servants from a cult

Why canít they see the devilís hand?

Refuse to be his tool

Begin seeking to understand

And play no more the fool

When sound advice comes walking by

When life would break deathís chain

Let not religion blind your eye

Let Christ bring birth 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.
