God paints with nature.
Though He isn’t a picture,
He’s involved in it.
Though behind this art,
He chooses to remain hidden;
choosing when and where to make Himself known
to His creation.
Spoken and unspoken.
Word made flesh,
via covenant, grasp and gracious breath
The knowledge of God begins with acknowledgement,
by way of The Presupposition;
the rock of Truth,
by which all truth is measured with precision.
Still this knowledge is limited.
God exists in freedom
and by this has chosen to voice His own self-limitation.
For the God of hope,
of Christ, joy, love, justice and peace
knows the deceptive heart of His once innocent,
now sin-ravaged beast.
Thus our struggle for an adequate human explanation.
For if we had gained His comprehensive capacity
It would intoxicate all of our faculties;
senses driven mad with lust for divine equality,
like a Nazi, I.S.,
or Bolshevik socialist.
God to become another power utility
conquered, killed; dissected in a laboratory.
We know because God speaks,
this is where He has chosen to meet.
The wonder of God’s intention for creation;
God dies for our salvation – resurrection is vindication.
His master plan,
the centerpiece of His revelation
His beaten, torn and crucified Son,
the apocalypse of the anointed One.
Though darkness; Nothingness seeks to devour
to this Conqueror it has had to submit all it’s power.
This, the cross and the end of the abyss.
The final curtain call, where it will no longer exist.
So it is, with horror and jubilation,
creation groans in anticipation.
For rising through darkness is the proclamation
“On the third day God forged
Now reason states
that where He speaks, He exists;
where He has spoken,
we ought to respond with both ears open.
So in faith, we join this decorated Victor
and the never ending chorus
of His decorous vista.
‘Those who have never been told of Him will see, and those who have never heard will understand.’
– (Isaiah 52:5; Romans 15:21)
