The Seen and the Unseen

How do we separate
Truth from illusion

The illusion is needed
In order to see the truth

The physical is needed
To see the spiritual

The darkness is needed
To see the light

To see what cannot be seen
We must first close our eyes

 

II Corinth 4:18

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen…”

St. Luke 17:21

“…for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

 

Born Again

Art: The Holy Spirit by Waiting for the Word

Mary gave birth

To Jesus Christ

But Christ was not

Born of God

Until his baptism

By water and spirit

 

ST. Mark 1:10-11

“And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him.  And there came a voice from heaving, saying, Thou art my beloved Son…”

St. John 3:5

“Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Kingdom of God

A house is just that
What we labor for
A place to live
And when it is finished
We move in
And the house becomes a home

Christ built a house
A place where he could live
He is finished and he is home

The house is only what it contains
And when love fills our home
It comes pouring out the doors and windows
Out into the streets and cities and countries

 

St. Luke 17:21

…for behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
