Man tries to become his own god :

1) by demoting the worship of the Almighty (a wonderfully, literal Title) and

2) by promoting himself in sports, science fiction, and pseudo science, etc.

EVER-PRESENT

Some folks religion is all past,

Made of ritual, reflexes, rites,

Mixed with a “called” feast, a “called” fast,

Based on images, pictures, sights.

2

Other’s religion is primarily a hope,

They hope in some uncertain day,

(Presently their religion doesn’t cope)

They hope for help when they’ve passed away,

3

The God who IS Triune, filled the past,

But controls the present as well.

Our God endures as long as time shall last,

Yet daily, today by faith, will indwell.

4

He is the God of the ever-present present,

He is the God of all history gone by,

Wherever in history’s line one is sent,

The Almighty is there: past and bye-n-bye.

5

What good is a God whose primary claim

Is a birth, a life, a filled tomb?

What good is a God whose supposed fame

Is for some generation still in the womb?

6

Our God is past, He’s future, and also right now.

He is here for the present trial, the current need,

He’ll be here when each future day enters, with a bow,

Ever present: to love, to lean on, to lead.

Being filled with the nature of God

is a completion – back to before the fall (and/or better).

Being controlled by the carnal nature is a destruction – leading to the final destruction.
