Loving the God of the OT and the NT

Loving the God of the OT and the NT

A Poem by John F Carver

God Almighty has the most important task

There is in heaven and he might not realize it

But he's my hero as well as God to me and my mask:

We are only safe because of him; don't despise it.



He made man the second time to right it

He cursed the Snake for deceiving innocence

He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah to fight it

And destroyed the peoples for Israel with no pretense.



He came up with the idea to allow Jesus to die

But had the strength he raised him from the dead:

Cursing the Serpent was a mistake they sigh

For Satan rules in hell with one way out instead.



Destroying the peoples for Israel was for the best

They would have tormented themselves with no end

The harder tasks where harshness must be suggest

The Father is ruthless and given to murder we pretend.



Even to allowing them to kill Jesus which is true

But Jesus led them to, that man would be freed

And he's been a loving Father providing for you

The saints, the little Christs; our every need.



But in the end when the entire world gangs up on Christ:

It's God Almighty that brings fire down from the sky

And destroys Satan no matter how it's sliced

God Almighty, our loving Father, did his task is why.



One must fear the Father if one has any wisdom

But his love gives us the everlasting Kingdom.

Actually it was the Heavenly Father that cursed Satan. I just want to make that perfectly clear. But they right it in the end. I hope I am never called upon to love as he does. I don't know I would be able to with all the flack I would get because of it.

If you want a lot of faith ask God to put the spirit of your flesh into a deep dreamless sleep until your body dies that only he can wake it from like I did. It is a good idea if you find you are not .. more..
