Paul making known The Invisible God -Acts 17 17:16-32
"Preaching on Mars Hill" by GE Parson
As Paul waited in Athens,
His spirit was stirred in him,
As he saw the city totally
Given over to sin.

As he waited, he preached
In the Synagogue, the Market square
With devout persons to all
Who happened to be there.

Certain philosophers confronted him
Accusing him of preaching to them,
Some strange religion, because
He preached Jesus and His resurrection.

Paul was invited to a forum on Mars Hill,
To hear what "This babbler of a new religion,
Is daily espousing to the world,
About this Jesus and a resurrection.

So standing before a crowd of doubters
Paul accused them of being very religious,
For they worshiped many altars.

"You even worship an unknown god,
Of whom I will make known to you.
He is the Creator of this world,
Of all living creatures and humanity too."

"In as much as He is Lord of all,
He giveth life and breath and all things.
And has made of one blood all nations
From just two created beings."

"And now commands all men
Every where to repent,
For he has appointed a day of
Judgment by that One whom He has sent."

When Paul preached Christ's death,
Burial and resurrection,
Some mocked, some believed,
And others desired to hear it again.

Author Notes
This message by the Apostle Paul, in this Author's opinion, is one of the most powerful message recoded in the Bible. It speaks of the
God of creation, the death, burial and resurrection Christ, calling for repentance of
of the sin of self righteousness, and warns of a day of judgment.

My dear FS reader friends, "some believed and some did not" So let me ask you, where do you stand in regards to this message?
Thank you reading
