Before the face of the deep
or the mountains were formed,
I was brought forth.
As the anointed one, I was set up
from everlasting.
I am Alpha and Omega,
the first and the last.

When He prepared the heavens
and compassed the waters
with bounds,
I was there.
I placed lights in the firmament,
to give you time.
I am, the eternal
Word.

With undiminished divinity
I dwelt among you,
in perfect humanity.
I assumed the likeness
of your sinful flesh,
yet my consciousness
transcends, all time and space.
Before Abraham was,
I am.

Your time
cannot be measured.
It has no length,
no future and no past.
It is merely a dimension of space,
a present reality,
determined only
by depth of experience.

When I bore your sin,
in shame and ignominy,
The works of my hands
were shrouded in darkness,
as time,
slipped into eternity.
I was lifted up,
that you may know, that
I am he.

You cannot fathom
the depth of my agony,
for you are finite
and space bound.
My suffering was timeless,
and is therefore everlasting.
I am the Lamb
slain, since before
the foundation of the world.

I am coming quickly.
On that great day,
time as you know it
shall cease,
Day and night
will come to a final end.
Seek me today,
for whosoever finds me
finds life.
I AM the way.


Proverbs 8:23-30
Colossians 1:15-17
2 Corinthians 6:2
Ephesians 5:15-16

I'm not always big on poems because I often feel like I'm missing something but this well-written and beautiful bit of words touched me deeply. I could feel (God's arms around me as I plunge into a sense of darkness, yet your words, assure me that he will never let go. I can feel your love reach out to me as well. Though we will likely never meet know that you made a huge difference in my heart today. God bless you always.
