How long can they Halt?

“Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions?  If the LORD be God, follow Him… And the people answered him not a word” (1 Kings 18:21).  “And without controversy… God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (1 Timothy 3:16). 

Should not our opinions be guided
By evidence that we can view?  
How long shall we be undecided
Between what is false and is true? 

The Lord demonstrates His dominion
In all of His works of creation. 
How long shall they hold the opinion
That contradicts true observation. 

How is it today that men pause
Between the opinions so stated
Regarding the obvious Cause
Of all things that God has created? 

Historical proof also came
When Christ, as prophets had said,
Then bore on the cross all our shame,
And afterward rose from the dead. 

Our Savior ascended in glory
And now He is highly exalted! 
In spite of God’s proof in His story   
Amazingly, some have still halted!

We thank You, Lord, for the conclusion
We reach by Your great evidence.
The world may halt with confusion,
But they are without a defense! 

Lord, help us to speak to the lost
To turn them away from their fiction,
So they may be counting the cost
By Your Holy Spirit’s conviction!
