In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Created from the Earth, He blew wind into our life, once dead, cold as ice, now alive, full of fire.
Broken and ashamed, we pushed away His love. Full of sin, we walk across the dust, earth becoming earth again.
We hear You in the airs, You cry out for us, yet we still disobey. Your vengeance burns, erupting like a volcano against our idols and adulterous ways.
Walking the desert for 40 years, your prophets warn us, your words wash over us like waterfalls but we refuse to bathe in your protection.
Silence over the Earth, 400 years time. The Holy Spirit blows through once again, Jesus Christ is born.
Baptizing in fire, walking over waters, healing the earth, commanding the storms, so is the son of God, our savior, our King, our Lord.
Who greater to save us, who can call himself “Messiah”? He is the great I AM, showering with grace, glowing with righteousness. He rose out of the ground, Breathing His love over our souls.
Rise from the rubble, your past, Quench the flames, your passions for this world, Cut your streams of sin, the relations that pull you down. Take in the air of life, the majesty of His Word, into your mind, body, and spirit.
For this is what the LORD says–he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited–he says: “I am the LORD, and there is no other.
God is still God. He is the ruler of everything. His eyes see all we do; His ears hear our every word, His heart sees through all our thoughts and desires. Too many of us have abundance in material things and get occupied with the “business of life” and attempt to put God in a “box.” Our jobs have their box, as does education, TV, social life, family and every other area of time that we have. These boxes consist of the responsibilities, time, and wants. We have forgotten that God is still God. We want God to stay in church, answer our prayers and be happy with the “tips” that we give Him as tithes. His purpose will be fulfilled throughout the Earth, whether we believe it or not, whether He uses us or He uses someone else in a far away land. He is God. He must be honored, respected, and obeyed as God should and will be. He’s not Santa Claus. He’s not a fairytale, or something else to make you feel good. Let’s get back to the basic foundations of faith. Maybe you are reading this, and you live in a nation where religion is all around you. Everyone knows that there is a God, but they don’t know how to approach Him. You come to God through Jesus Christ. This is what we lost in Eden. Adam and Eve rejected the privilege to have a constant face to face relationship with God, thus when we try to reach out to Him now, we don’t understand how.
This poem explains the creation of the world until the resurrection of Christ. He created us to be with Him. God’s plan has always been family. You are part of that family. We enter into that family through Christ. In the past, Israel rejected their Father in Heaven, and even though God did everything He could to get them to turn back to Him, they refused. He sent men and women to speak to them, to show them His love, wanting to guide them out of their confusion and problems. Yet still, they didn’t want anything to do with Love itself. This is us sometimes. We want to blame everything on God when something goes wrong, then we want Him to do whatever we tell Him, in our way, and on our terms. It doesn’t work that way, it never has. There aren’t many ways to get to God. The only way is through Christ. Let’s pray right now, and ask God to mold our hearts, and return us back to His love, where we belong:
Father, we pray to You because You are the only God in Heaven and Earth. We repent right now for not obeying Your voice when You spoke to us. Father, help us remember that you are not like a man that you would lie. When You speak, the Almighty King of Kings is declaring. Your more than any higher authority and ruler. You will always have the first and last word. You have the best future prepared for us, so help us honor You as You deserve. Don’t allow the things of this life get in the way between us. Jesus Christ, You are my Lord, now, and forever. Thank you for dying for me on that cross. Your blood has set me free. Thank you. We love you Father. Amen.
