Farther Than the Eye Can See

The scope of God’s activity is farther than the eye can see.

In fact there’s no place left to hide since God is present far and wide. 

All the words that preachers say, the visions to which they lay claim,

are heard in heaven, written down. A preacher shouldn’t be a clown.


The preachers who assert their dreams are proof of what the gospel means

Have, like their ancestors, forgotten who is who and what is what. 

The word of God is like the fire that singes souls and damns a liar.

It’s like a key that opens locks or hammers that can break all rocks.
