God Spoke Through The Ages


God spoke to Adam and Eve; they then by Satan were deceived,
And then they both had to leave, the Paradise they had received.
Enoch walked with God in his day, then by God was taken away,
Taken away from the earth he trod, into the very presence of God.

Noah was told about all the dark, and that he had to build the ark,
So God could save Noah’s family, from the flood that all would see.
Abraham was told by God to leave, as he was one who did believe.
So he packed up and left his land, trusting in God’s heart and hand.

Jacob had wrestled with the Lord; it was for a blessing he implored,
And he would not let go of God, until he received His Gracious nod.
God had given Moses the call, to climb up Sinai to receive the Law,
To guide God’s people to the land, that God promised to Abraham.

God spoke to other prophets too, so men accepted what they knew,
And God continued to speak to all, to redeem man from Adam’s fall.
Through the many prophets of old, God’s message to men foretold,
In time He would reach every nation, with His Grace and Salvation.

God chose in these last days, to speak through Christ to His Praise,
He sent Jesus to fulfill The Word, many priests and prophets heard.
His Son came to be the sacrifice, so men could inherit Eternal Life.
So believe in The Words of Christ, and you will enter into Paradise.

    Hey Bob, why does God hate New Orleans? And why does he especially hate the poor black people of New Orleans? Now that I think of it, maybe he just hates levees. That’s actually understandable. I mean, put yourself in his shoes. You’ve busted your butt creating this amazing planet, giving birth to millions of species of plants and animals (including the sea monkey – go figure) , forming mountains and rivers and coastlines, and then along come these idiotic humans who start changing everything around – diverting rivers, filling in wetlands, and building dams and levees. No wonder he got pissed off. I’ll bet he’s just steaming about Mt. Rushmore too. (Report) Reply
