What Will He Find.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


† † †What Will He Find.....

For shops for stores just down the lane

Fuel for fire or car

Money it seems will find some drain

Regardless where we are

Is this a sign of modern times?

Prosperity today!

Or Godís answer to many crimes

Along lifeís selfish way

We lie, we steal, we cheat we kill

Demonic fruit we bear

Can we from shame not get our fill?

Or do we even care?

Churches were packed just yesteryear

Godís temples far and wide

Go here, there or anywhere

Now few believe inside

True faith today is seen as odd

Most schools are banned to teach

So few believe or think of God

Whatever Preachers preach

Could it be true, Godís less than pleased?

Weíve broken every law

Has not the last sour grape been squeezed?

Must Heaven search for more?

Christ died for us, for each oneís sin

Suffered tremendous pain

Through selfless love each soul to win

Through faith to live again

But when He comes will faith Christ find?

When waken from our sleep

Or will He see still groping blind?

A mass of straying sheep.....

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.
