Treasure Island

Michael P. Johnson

(7th Nov.1943 / New Silksworth / Sunderland Co/Durham England)


On earth alone can time be found -1Co.7: 29.2Ti.1: 9
For such has God no need -Mt.16: 3.Tit.1: 2
By time is not the Father bound - Jer.10: 10.Da.4: 3
Nor those of Christ His Seed - Jn.3: 36

On this we truly can depend
Though first it may seem odd
A day will dawn that sees no end -Rev.21: 23-25
As was and is with God

No sun nor moon will be in sight -Gen.1: 14.Rev.20: 11
No star, as guide to man -Mt.24: 29.Isa.34: 4
For Christ alone will be his light -Rev.21: 23.Rev.22: 5
As was, ere time began

Then living clay will turn to dust -Gen.3: 19
Yet not what dwells within -Gen.3: 22
But then will come, what coming must
For those still bound to sin -Rev.20: 11-15

Our spirit’s of God, and cannot die -Gal.6: 8
Although the flesh may ruin 2Pe.1: 14
In Christ, we like the butterfly 1Cor.15: 51
Will rise from our cocoon -1Cor.15: 52

New robes of light, in Christ we’ll wear -Rev.6: 1
We’ll fly on virtue’s wing -Isa.40: 31
By grace we’ll soar high in the air -1Th.4: 17
To join our Lord and King

But what of you when time has ceased? Mt.25: 31-33
When from your clay set free -2Pe.1: 14
In endless flame just like the Beast? -Rev.20: 13-15
Or reign with Christ like me? Rev.20: 4

If you don’t have the Father’s Seal Rev.9: 4
With Satan’s then your date
Heaven or hell The choice is real -Deut.30: 19
And time my friend wont wait. -Lk.12: 16-21

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
