VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: God Is The Lord!





The Question Was Pointed:

How Do YOU See God?

There Were Christians
Agnostics
Deists
Atheists
And Some
With No Stripe
And However You Paint It
There Was Going To Be A Fight!

Every Body And His Brother
Had An Opinion
That Was Plain
AND
The Answers Were As Divergent
As Divergent Could Be
AND
They Caused The Christians Great Pain!

Hand Short
Foot Broken

Unapproachable
Uninterested
Uninvolved
Reach: None
Creator: Not Possible
Sustainer: What Foolishness!
Judge: Not Theirs!

Trustworthy

Responsive
Teacher

And, Again, And Again
True!

To Awaken From The Grave!
I Am One!
Are You?!

No Sin Is Too Evil
AND
No Pain Is Too Great
That It Is Beyond His Ability
To Forgive
To Heal
When Confessing
AND
Repentant
We Give Back To Him
What He Gave To Us
Our Will AND Our Choice
AND
Choose
To Walk In His Way!
I'm Walking!
Will You Join Me On The Way?!

Is Not A Bill
Nor A Law
To Be Put Forth
Voted
Proclaimed
AND
Being No Vote Getter
Promptly Repealed!

God Is Life Eternal
For Those Who Choose
To Him
Through Christ's Blood
To Be
For Eternity
Everlastingly Sealed!
God Will The Faithful One Seal!

Worshipping God Is No Accident!
Salvation Is No Perhaps!
Eternal Life Is No Fairy Tale
AND
Jesus Christ
The Way To Eternal Life
Cannot
Will Not
The Believing Child Fail!
Put Your Finger
On The Impress Of The Cruel Nail!

The Comfort Of The Holy Spirit

The Blood Of The Lamb
Make Life Now
Worth Living
AND
Life Hereafter
