Psychics are Open Sundays

A poem because God still speaks today, through His Son. Like He promised. (Hebrews 1:1-2)

I learned in Sunday School

That prophecy is a thing of the past.

I guess when God turned off tongues,
He shut His own mouth, too.
It figures.

Moses had the burning bush. 

Peter had Jesus. 

“But what do we have?” 

(I’d asked)

“We have the Last Times.”

“But not really, truly, the Last Times,

I guess… because that’s when

The sons  and daughters will prophesy again, right?”

“For pity’s sake, child,

You ask too many questions. 

But to answer–

The Holy Spirit.

That’s what we’ve got now.

And Jesus said He was even better

And Jesus never lies 

(Good riddance!)”

“Does the Holy Spirit talk to us?”

“That’s what the Bible’s for.”

“Then what’s the Holy Spirit for?”

“To be… there.

You either have Him or you don’t.”

“So He… sits there?”

“More or less… yes.”

“What if you don’t have Him?”

“…Remember 

‘Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God?'”

“How do I know if I have Him,

When He never speaks?”

“I think that’s maybe a question for Pastor Allan.”

“Does God speak to pastors?”

“Only about the Bible.

Nothing like what’s in the Bible.

None of that future-forecasting

Word of knowledge stuff.” 

“Is that why psychics are open on Sundays?”

“Psychics are frauds or devil-worshippers.”

“They get it from the devil?”

“Sometimes. And so you must 

Never, ever visit one.”

“Because the devil speaks?”
“I’m afraid so.”
“But not God?”
“Would you want Him to,

Like some scary psychic 

With a creepy crystal ball?”

“I guess not…”

“Here. Have an extra Bible.”

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I’m a Fresno, CA native. After studying at Biola University, I received my MLIS (Masters in Library Science) from San Jose State University. I live with my mom, poet Kimberly Vargas Agnese, and serve as her unofficial agent. We reside at MeadowArc, a food forest in its infancy. I am called to, and passionate about, purity. In fact, the name Agnes means “pure.” Before I was born, my mom felt led to include the name Agnes in her name, and in the names of her children. My full, hyphenated name includes 26 letters (but not the whole alphabet).
