THE YEAR OF THE LORD

Adam and Eve in the Garden, yes, they did surely die!

True, they lived on for centuries, that in the Eternal eye,

.

Was a mere drop in a bucket; it was not even a day. (*)

The Bible says that a thousand years, in God’s sight, is but a day!

.

Man would have lived on forever!  One grain of sand by the sea

Could never begin to measure up or fit the analogy!

.

Infinity is the measure of space, space that has no end.

Just as eternity goes on and on and is hard to comprehend!

.

The angels are not eternal for they were created, too.

The angels are everlasting just the same as me and you!

.

Yes, man will live forever and where?  That depends on his aim!

If he cares not about heaven his future?  Oh, what a shame!

.

The Godhead, blessed Trinity, the matchless Three in One

Cooperated together and the universe was begun!

.

Yes, begun, for creation continues a world that has no end!

Can man confine the Eternal?  No, he will neither break or bend.

.

Who cannot confine the Eternal?  Do not you know He died long ago?

When God dies, we die too.  Who keeps us going?  Surely you know!

.

Our Eternal God, in infinity, impossible to trace!

So what really does keep us spinning?  Only His love and grace!

.

Consider the brain, so intricate, only God’s love could inspire!

Our brain is a miniscule fraction yet we presume to conspire!

.

Give up?  Nothing like this could evolve or start from whatever they say.

The suns, worlds in perfect control through time, like, night and day!

.

Now a glance at division of time, was God involved in this too?

Before Christ and after, Anno Domini, infinite and true! (**)

.

(*)  2 Peter 3:8

(**) The Year of The Lord

IS THERE HOPE

Adam and Eve in the Garden, yes, they did surely die.

True, they lived on for centuries but in the eternal eye

.

Was a mere drop in a bucket it was not even a day. (1)

For while, “As a day is as a thousand years,” (2) a thousand years but a day!

.

Man would have lived on eternally!  One grain of sand by the sea

Could never begin to measure up or fit the analogy.

.

For infinity is the measure of space that has no bounds or end!

Just as eternity continues on!  It is hard to comprehend!

.

The angels are not eternal for they were created, too!

The angels are everlasting just the same as me and you!

.

Yes, man will live forever and where depends on his aim!

If he cares not about Heaven, his future?  Oh, what a shame!

.

The Godhead, the blessed Trinity, the matchless three in One,

Cooperated, conspired, and the universe was begun!

.

Yes, begun for creation continues!  It is a world without end!

Can man confine the eternal?  He will neither break nor bend!

.

Why cannot we confine the eternal?  When we claim He died long ago,

If God dies we die, too.  Who keeps us spinning?  Do not you know?

.

I am sorry you gave in so easily.  I would love to argue His case!

So what really does keep us spinning?  Only His love and grace!

.

Consider the brain, so intricate, only God’s love could conspire.

And what or who keeps the heart pumping blood?  The wind?  The fire?

.

Give up!  Nothing like this could evolve or start from whatever they say

The sun, the worlds in perfect control through time, like, night and day!

.

Another thing, division of time was not God involved in this?

Before Christ and after (3) so why not cease and desist!

.

.

(1) 2 Peter 3:8

(2) In God’s eyes

(3) Before Christ and A.D. (Anno Domini) the Year of The Lord
