Flood the Earth......
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


       Flood The Earth......

Receive with joy each day on earth

Allow your heart to sing

Walk in the glow of brand new birth

Serving life’s Lord and King

 

Behold The Sovereign on His throne

Delight to be His queen

Acknowledge what the world’s unknown

Facing the yet unseen

 

This time of ours will not return

This day will not abide

The world must see, her offspring learn

Before the turning tide

 

Place self as last, God always first

Help those in need still lost

Comfort the sick, quench children’s thirst

Regardless of the cost

 

Throughout this life we’re courting death

Whatever form it takes

Drawing closer with every breath

Through every day God makes

 

We know the reason why we live

How Christ gives second birth

What grace gives free, we too should give

To flood the dry parched earth

 

We need to rise walk true and shine

We need The Truth to share

We need to serve life’s Bread and Wine

To people everywhere

 

We need to reach the walking dead!

Receive of Heaven’s coals

Then pour them on each sinful head

For Christ to save their souls.....

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.
