The Stumbling Block!

In The Statement:

I AM As Real As You Let Me Be To You!


Is The Stumbling Block!

How Would You Feel
IF
Your Child Said:
I Know That They Are My Parents
BUT
I Do Not Believe They Are My Parents?

OR

Your Husband Or Wife Saying:

I Know I Have A Spouse 
And I Am Consumed By Love For That Person
BUT
I Do Not Believe In The Marriage
AND
Have No Faith In Our Relationship?


What Is The Use Of
Knowledge 
When We Lack Faith And Belief?

*********

How Do YOU Believe 
Jesus Christ Feels
When We Treat Him
The Way
We Have No Desire To Be Treated
In Our Earthly Relationships?







There Is No Magic!
Jesus Christ IS Real
BUT
Because We Humans
Have Free Will
To Walk As We Choose
AND
Make Choices That Will Permit Our Names
To Be In The Evening News
We Use Our Ability
To Permit Reality Into Our Lives
By Degrees
Even If By That Decision
We End Up Humbled
Crying
- Sometimes Even Pleading For Death -
On Our Knees!

Belief!
Or Better
Belief Mingled With Unbelief
In The Multitude
Is The Reason
That Jesus Is Heard Asking:




AND

Saying:





AND

The Kicker:





We Used To Have Full Sight!
BUT
The Sin Of Doubt 
AND 
Presumption 
Cost Us Fore (Forward) Sight
AND
We Now See Things Through A Cloudy Glass!

We Used To Have Real Face-Time With Our Father!

But Now ...

We Must Pray And Plead
The Attributes Of Jesus Christ The Righteous 
To Receive Comfort And Aid
AND
The Blessings Of
Grace And Mercy
AND
Peace And Rest!

Of Note, Though
Is The Fact That
Neither
Allowance For
Nor Lack Of
Faith
Belief
AND
Trust
Will Turn God Into A Myth
Or A Mere Melody!

Our Irrational Desire
Will Not Render
The Eternal God
Of No Force Nor Effect!

Jesus Christ Is!
Jesus Christ Made Us!
Jesus Christ Purchased Reconciliation For Us!
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back To Earth
For That Which Was Lost
AND
Is Taking Back To His Home In Heaven
All Those Who Will Have Chosen
To Be:
Found
Believing
Faithful
Trusting
Reformed
AND
READY!

Take A Look
A Step
A Leap
Of  Faith
AND
In The Day Of Appointment
Be Made Anew
AND
Feel Your Wings
Unfurl
Even As You Are Borne Aloft
By The Love Of The Living God
To The Land Where Love Reigns
Where Light Is Life
Where Eternal Life Is Not A Poem
Where Time Is Forever Passed
Where The Sea Is Glass
Where Streets Are Gold
Where Citizens Cannot Grow Old
AND
Trust Cannot Be Bought Nor Sold
AND
Where The Sheep Are Safe 
In The Father's Forever Fold
AND
Hearts Can Never Again
Wax Cold!

God Is
AND
Whether We Believe 
Or 
Disbelieve
Have No Faith
AND
Refuse To Follow Him
Does Not Change That Fact!

Our God Is Returning
AND
He Will Not Be Silent!
