The God of Is-Real

O Lord, people are saying, You are just a prophet or just an allegory tail,

they also say they are not worried or concerned about going to hell.

Some say “there’s no God” and that I worship You in vain, they say if You were real,

You would answer when they call Your name.

Lord, I know You are real because only You can make it rain and thunder,

but why others can’t see this is what makes me wonder?

“Behold, whoever asks anything in My name is not asking in vain,

to give man a sign was one of the reasons I came.

All the things I did, I told man to write them in a book,

but unless a man is born again, he cannot see a sign even when he looks.

I showed man one sign when I walked on the sea,

but many of them still doubted and did not believe in Me.

There was once a man named Nicodemus who came to Me in the night,

he could not see the Kingdom of Heaven though it stood right before his sight.

Some people honor Me with their lips, but not with their hearts,

they are just as blind as Nicodemus was when he came to Me in the dark.

The Kingdom is like the wind because you cannot see where it goes,

but the wind can be felt whenever it blows.

O ye of little faith, even if I gave another sign this very hour,

they still would not believe in the Holy Spirit’s power.

Can man make the color of the sky? Or can he make the clouds that pass by?

Can man make the birds and bees? Or can he make the flowers, grass or trees?

Can man hold up the sun and cause it to burn?

Or hold the earth in his hand and make it turn?

Can he speak a word and make rain fall from the sky?

Man cannot do these things no matter how hard he tries.

Furthermore, I make the blind see and the sick healed,

and by faith My people know that I Am real!”

Job 38-39, Matthew 15:30-31; 16:4-19, Mark 6:49, John 5:24-27, 14:13-14, II Corinthians 5:7
