The Tempter's Demise (3).....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

† † †The Tempter's Demise (3).....

The tempter knows The Truth so well

Though truth he cannot speak

Heíll lie his evil way to hell

Where death heíll always seek

But death will never grace his path

Relief no dawn will see

For him; forever Heavenís wrath

Will come by Royal decree

The bible warns of Satanís ploys

His subtlety to woo

His crafty ways, cunning decoys

To trap Godís chosen few

We need but on The Rock to stand

Rely on Him who died

Who rose to reign at Godís right hand

And calls us to abide

The tempter must to Jesus bow

Must humbly call Him Lord

Knowing when ends the here and now

Heíll feel his Masterís sword

Temptationís full of subtle lies

A masquerade of light

Yet swift we witness its demise

When in Christís name we fight

He must obey when Jesus calls

When demons hear their name

And when at last when Satan falls

Jesus will light the flame

We too must think of death and hell

Of life and judgement day

Consider what our lives will tell

What God to us will say?.....

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.
