There is no way to know why we sometimes have to wait a long time for certain things or answers….but remember that eternity is a long time, and what to us seems a long time is, to God, a moment. He is in control and He knows why He does what He does when He does it. It is our job to do as He says. We already know the final outcome.
The latest poem:
Mighty as broken eggshells
Strewn along the road
Something tells me that most of us
Bear less than half the load
Of their responsibility
Within the church of God
As capable ambassadors
Of the only One who’s good.
I’m starting now to understand
That this is partly due to
That few of those who teach of Him
Are teaching what is true
To those who need to know about
How they must be saved
And so they walk in ignorance and
Unwisely have behaved.
Open up your Bible and
Compare it to the word
Of the preacher on the pulpit
Who too often seems absurd
Then read God’s word in prayerfulness
And often you will find
That the pedants who now speak of Him
Are functionally blind
As though their fleshly eyes could see
While they’ve lost their Christly mind.
Don’t follow shallow teachers
Who pretend to speak for Christ
Whose teachings don’t compare to his
Whose message is not spiced
With the message of the gospel
That divides us like a knife
Sending goats away who won’t obey
The words that offer life.
Don’t waste your time with preachers
Who won’t preach what God requires
For only will he find the truth
Who after truth inquires.
What is truth, someone might ask
And I will answer in a trice:
Those words lack truth that don’t agree
With the doctrine of Jesus Christ.
