He Can Fly

Thoughts for Ascension Day...

Heaven invaded earth
Celestial bread descended
Transformed water
into best vintage
or step-carrying fluid

The Word heals
multiplies
stills
resurrects
does not return void

Unleashed from the bounds
of His creation
He can fly

Artificial Sun
Grab a stick, grab a shield
and we'll meet in the field
to wage friendly war

in the rain or the sun
We will play and have fun
and it's all outdoors

Those days of fantasy
of battles won
can never be replaced
by artificial sun

The flicker of a screen 
works like a sedative 
for what is only seen
is not like what is lived

Our God is One GOD



It is not just a repudiation of the then culturally multi-God worldview.

It is also a preview of the reality to be more fully be revealed later - the Persons of the One GOD [Father, Son, Spirit]

My recent studies lead me to suggest that when we read the Gospels (specifically John) the we read it putting an emphasis on the words differently.

If you re-read the Gospels with the thought in mind that it is largely about Jesus claiming that He has authority above the Romans and above the Jewish leadership then the message is astonishing.

John's Gospel, for example, is largely formulated as a court case with evidence presented as to who Jesus is, or said otherwise - His authority.

If you re-read the Gospels keeping the thought in mind that it is evidence of the Authority of Jesus because of who He is, you just might make some cool new discoveries!

The One Remains

When the direction is unclear
there remains the One
who is Himself the Way

When the path is closed
there remains the One
who is Himself the Door

When the thirst remains unquenched
there remains the One
who is Himself living Water

When the start and end goes bad
there remains the One
who is Himself the Beginning and the End

When the words fail
there remains the One
who is Himself The Word

When breath ceases
there remains the One
who is Himself the Resurrection and the Life

When we feel alone and abandoned
there remains the One
who is Himself - Immanuel - God with us"

There remains the great self-existing One
I AM
with you until the end of the age

There is One who always remains
