WHAT IF

Not what but Who created

The worlds and space without end.

Not what but Who stands by us

Always quick to defend!

.

.

What, suppose you, would happen

If God withdrew His care?

Look out into black darkness and see

Nothing, nothing out there!

.

.

No sun.  No moon.  We are spinning

Completely out of control!

A growing, roaring as we

Approach the blackest black hole!

.

.

What, suppose you, would happen

No heaven, no hell at all?

No retribution rewarding,

No God on whom to call?

.

.

We cry out, “Oh God,” or “My God,”

Most times we know not why.

Could it be that subconsciously

We are afraid and want to hide?

.

.

There is a heaven!  There is a Hell!

Both were created, you know!

One for repentant believers,

Satan goes down below!

.

.

No hiding place from God, you know!

One thief repentant, one not!

To one, “Meet Me in heaven today!”

The other received his lot!

.

.

There is no intermediate!

No western front, all quiet.

“I do not know Him,” but the other one,

Well, it is either heaven or riot!

.

JUST BECAUSE, LUKE 18:17

God created, made something from nothing!

He made everything that I see!

And everything I cannot see, forever!

He made it for you and me!

.

.

Only God creates something from nothing!

Suns, earths, space without end!

His world out there and world within!

As Spirit He can contend!

.

.

Man just assembles what has been created!

Create?  No, not at all!

It is true, “We are made fearfully

And wonderfully!”  God’s call!

.

.

A pile of mud!  He breathed and spoke

And man then became behold

Not just an intricate fabulous thing,

But an everlasting Soul!

.

.

“In the image of God!”  So hard to conceive!

God’s image, JESUS on earth!

Born of a virgin, God’s own likeness!

Of lowly humble birth!

.

.

Fearfully extravagantly made!

An impossible intricate Soul!

“In the image of God,” not improbable

Like hearing, speak in control.

.

.

We are image only!  Cannot boast at all!

Remember just God created!

We are but like Him, we are not Creator

We are only the fates.

.

.

But we control all the other fates,

It is either Heaven or Hell!

Can you not see our fate is to be

Heaven?  Where all is well! (*)

.

.

All because He became sin for us!

Crucified was vilified!

Went through Hell so that we might live!

Forever above by His side!

.

.

It was His fate from the beginning of time,

No beginning always was!

Not to examine or figure out!

Eternal just because…

.

.

What is to figure?  Accept your fate!

Believe!  As a credulous child!

“Except you become as this little one…”

Will not join the undefiled!

.

.

(*) How could anything be better?
