The Lying Devil - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

The cunning devil’s fighting well
Flooding the earth with lies
Leading the masses into hell
Clouding gullible eyes

While darkness reigns shadows grow tall
Technology runs wild
Many will stumble churches may fall
Through compromise defiled

Evil weapons are everywhere
Vast harbingers of death
Buffeting souls polluting air
Poisoning even breath

With heart and soul in disarray
With but a few set free
The world like fools, like sheep astray
Still fails The Truth to see

This is Satan! This is his plan
Such are his secret ways
Lying cheating and killing man
Prolonging thus his days

But praise The Lord these days will end
His powerful arm will fail
To Christ his knees will surely bend
Before he lands in jail

Yet who’ll admit their lives of shame?
Lift up their wayward eyes
Receive God’s Light in Jesus’ name
And turn from Satan’s lies

Who will believe The living Christ?
Accept God’s risen Son
Believe that He was sacrificed
That victory may be won

    we all have to drive Satan by being faithful to God …the good always wins over evil…Evil prospers just for a little time but is soon wrecked by the almighty….
    the poem is too good with a didacted tone...
