The origin of the Universe is our origin:
Its beginning, our own beginning,
Its ending, our own ending.
Though cast into life in the year of our birth,
The seed that conceived us
Came all the way from Year Zero -- so with our soul and spirit.
The time from our birth to Creation, though seemingly long,
Is but an instant in our mind;
So it is for God – a blinking of an eye.
When we die, the end of the Universe is but a waking instant away;
And time spent in waiting is but a twinkling of a star;
And the lights of the galaxies will all be over too.
We will all be there to see it,
To experience the spectacle as with one eye, as one person --
We all -- from Adam to the last child born.
Physicists claim: We exist in a Universe which remains --
If we imagine an ant on a balloon --
The same wherever you look, the same wherever you stand.
And so, whether we measure time from our birth
Or we reckon it beyond death or fathom it within this moment,
It is but a tiny glimmer, yet, a hopeful vision of eternity.
What we feel, see and know then
Is timeless reality, both compressed and stretched,
Within this vibrant panoply called LIFE.
God alone has the power to travel freely
From the infinite to the finite and back again,
While we, through space, must cross forward from beginning to end.
Or is it that we move from moment to moment --
Ever the present, ever the now --
And that what is before or after does not matter anyhow?
As Christ is the beginning and the end
So is our life, a glorious trek with Him through time.
As He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow
So is our life, a promise of everlasting perfection.
As He promised to be with us to the Earth’s ends,
So we shall live with Him where He now reigns.
Isn’t all this then a proof that He is God
And that He has the power to know
And to control the eternal fate of humans?
Isn’t this glimpse of His real nature
Enough to destroy unbelief?
Enough to show us our folly?
Hence, the mystery of life can be reduced to one idea --
The Universe began when light came into being
By the might of God our Creator.
As Jesus Christ is the True Light Who set all things
So by His love, when the world will cease to exist,
leave time and
live forever. . . .
