TO KNOW HIM
To know Him
The highest calling in human existence
Most noble purpose of being,
Greatest gift above all,
Soars high above our natural life as we experience it;
To know the Creator who spoke each of us into existence
Formed the spirit mysteriously within a tiny child
Body shaped meticulously within the expanding womb,
Lord who sees all the footsteps before the first crawling begins
All the thoughts of the mind before words can even be formed.
Existential intellectual exercises melt as wax on a cheap candle
Selfish mind, prideful intellect of man
Much as a marathon runner sprints out into an endless desert;
True knowledge is divinely revealed to a spirit and soul,
Rescue from the circle snare of death.
Knowledge given in pure communion, in covenant oneness
As the finger of God moves and touches here, and touches there
One by one shown by Noah, Abraham, Moses, King David and many others,
Isaac, Israel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Elijah and Enoch who stand in His presence.
Great things in humility to take hold of,
The sovereign command that was spoken
In powerful Words that never fade
Or become silent, like human words that fall to the ground,
As when the new day comes after promises made to a woman by a man
In passion or in desperation,
Promises that mostly fail
Much as a thought in the mind that slowly unravels,
Even the most sincere intention forgotten.
The Word of God was made flesh
Birthed through a righteous woman
That we might see and hear
That we all might begin to know Him,
Dark veil of the curse to be removed;
Only the Father reveals His Son
Only by the Son, the Gate, the path and narrow road brings to the Father,
The emerald rainbow Light that radiates on another face as angels bow in worship!
Heaven’s knowledge offered in purest friendship
Intimacy more than a faithful lover given
Pleasures in this life beyond all natural human understanding;
The One who can hold the tiny hand while yet in the womb
Still reaches out towards every heart and soul
Trumpets offer beautiful sounds in honor given
Praise thunders about the Throne of Love that draws worship near,
Worthy, Faithful One
Our Lord, our God.
