Remember Sodom
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson

† † † Remember Sodom

What does one need before the grave?

What must in life we do?

What can be done manís soul to save?

How is one born anew?

The promise comes through Jesus Christ

To those whoíll bear His name

Although Godís Lamb was sacrificed

To bear manís total shame

Yet queues to church grow ever short

To sin; theyíre wide and long

Who can receive the true report?

Singing the devilís song

Who knows what lies around lifeís bend?

What plan The Fatherís drawn?

Who knows today theyíll see its end?

Missing tomorrowís dawn

The time has come to take account

Take stock of how we stand

Does life call out from Heavenís mount?

Or death as Satanís planned?

We canít afford to act the clown

The day of Christ draws nigh

Recall the end of Sodom town!

When judgement from high

Remember Noah and his ark

How few escaped inside

How many failed to meet the mark

How countless scoffed and died

Salvationís calling out once more

The signs are all too plain

Come now! Or knock in vain the door

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.
