At the End of the Road

img_8665

As a Christian, when I read all the descriptions of God in the Bible, I find God is male, with physical attributes such as his strong right hand, and a face that no man can look upon. Yet in the Bible it says that God is Spirit, so which one is it. The physical like us, or a Spirit that doesn’t really have a description. I don’t believe anyone knows. We read all the metaphorical descriptions and make our conclusions, but we may be surprised when our actual time comes to leave this world.

At the end of the road when my life is done

What will if I find, will there be one

Who will meet me there at the pearly gates

With hands outstretched no need to wait

Will he be tall  short  fat or thin

When he sees me will he break out with a grin

Funny to me how we fantasize

Making God like us as we rationalize

Dreaming that descriptions of hands  and face

Describe a reality that has no race

Metaphors become reality as we describe our God

Forgetting he is Spirit  and that would be odd

For a Spirit has no shape, no hands to hold tight

Only a presence of the purest light

So whether God is he she or it

The God we meet will probably not fit

The idea we have in the back of our mind

Won’t it be interesting what we will find

At the end of the road

  1. Scripture says that Father God is Spirit. Jesus is Spirit who also has a flesh body. I say has to remind Christians that He rose from the dead, and that includes the body. Jesus had a male body. The Holy Spirit of God is the 3rd person of the Holy Trinity. It is The Holy Spirit who comes to live in us when we accept Christ as Lord and Savior in our lives. As well as I can explain this from Scripture, there is still much mystery God hasn’t revealed to us and we won’t know until we get to heaven, but a preview would be awesome!
