Times Are Changing - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

The world rotates in sin and shame
Profaning Jesus’ holy name
In Satan’s grasp she’ll surely die
Denying God who came from high

Blindness reigns where Christ is rare
When crimes abound few people care
The lost refuse Salvation’s law
Where Jesus Christ is taught no more

Yet drugs increase, porn fills the street
Unbalanced scales, spouses who cheat
Theft is common, lust sets aflame
Only a few praise Jesus’ name

Church doors are shut, jails overflow
Lies, deceit wherever we go
Children run wild, parents look on
Few give thought to God’s true Son

The world considers God’s sheep as fools
Who still obey obsolete rules
God’s a myth a legend grown stale
And Christ a children’s fairy tale

Has God shut tight to Light the door?
Can Gentile eyes see Truth no more?
Times are changing the night draws nigh
Soon God’s Son we’ll see on high

Just how foolish has man to grow?
What other sign should Heaven show?
Give Christ a chance just take a look
The facts of life are in His book

Whilst yet God’s Word is free to all
Take it, read it, answer the call
Listen to reason Jesus is King
Come in faith His praises to sing…
