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! (**)

THE TRUE WORD

Contingent upon nothing!  God’s Word does not comply

To sophisticated finesse or try to pacify

The arrogance of fledglings who claim to know it all,

Who trip on that stumbling block where Christ is all in all!

.

.

He is certainly a good man!  But then how could that be?

For was He not a liar in His claim to Deity?

Liar or good man?  Neither one for He was (is) God!

All His words and works proved that He was Lord of Lords!

.

.

King of Kings, who, in His love, proved true majesty!

Dying on the cross for all, setting captives free!

“A prophet, like, Mohammed…” oh please, give me a break!

“Mohammeds’ bones are on display.”  So Jesus was a fake?

.

.

Our Savior left the tomb complete, ascended to the throne!

“I go to my Father,” He said, and He was not alone.

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the Three in One, all there!

The Blessed Trinity!  One God, the fairest of the fair!

.

.

Miracle of miracles, completeness, blest Trinity!

God gave His Son, Jesus died, the Spirit comes to me.

Look about you, miracles!  In everything you see!

And you will see another in God’s Eternity!

.

.

(“Who (Jesus) for the joy that was set before Him, endured the cross;

despising the shame, and is now at the right hand of God,”)

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

MYSTERY

Can you dig it, just one God?

Yet He is three persons!

No, not just in essence or

Conveniently conversant–

 

 

He is one God! He is one

Personality.

Yet, God in three persons

Over all I see.

 

 

God stated singular, so

Very clear, He said,

“I Am that I Am!”

So get it in your head!

 

 

“I Am!” One God we worship

Not many! Not three!

But God in three persons,

Blessed Trinity!

 

 

God the Father! God the Son!

And God the Holy Spirit!

This we worship, the Godhead!

Cannot understand it!

 

 

But yes, I positively do believe this mystery of the Trinity.

CREATOR, BLESSED TRINITY

When the mists of night have past revealing

God’s forever day,

No contention left deceiving

Driving peace away!

.

.

Sun?  No need!  The Son of God

Determines light forever!

In the sunshine of His Grace,

Walk in darkness?  Never!

.

.

“Eyes have not seen nor ears have heard,

Nor have  a n y  conceived,” (1)

What the Father’s prepared for them

Who love Him and perceived–

.

.

What Faith portends who wait for Him.

Receive what God has prepared, (2)

Many mansions for those in love

Who have His mercy shared!

.

.

Joy and peace forevermore!

Nothing below to compare,

To the happiness we will know

And with countless numbers share!

.

.

Done with sadness!  Tears?  No more!

Can anyone consider

The ecstasy?  “Joy unspeakable (3)

Full of glory.”  The Giver!

.

.

Rejoice now in God’s sacrifice!

Share peace forevermore!

When we will know joy completely,

On that forever shore!

.

.

Peace, bliss, imagine it!

Everlastingly!

Thinking fails!  Not even in dreams

Can we compare or see!

.

.

He promised, “I go to prepare…”

Do we not trust God’s Word?

“Let not your hearts be troubled!”

Most joyous words yet heard! (4)

.

.

Consider now, do not miss the trip!

Love Jesus, God’s Son.

God, the Father, Son and Spirit,

Of course, the Three are One!

.

.

Yes, gods a plenty men have made!

Only The One I see,

Creator, Father, Son, the Spirit,

BLESSED TRINITY!
