The Blood of the Lamb


    The Blood of the Lamb.....

The priests of old would offer blood                   Heb.9:7

For self, and public sin

They’d sacrifice just as they should                     Heb.9:9+10:11

But still they’d fail to win                                    Heb.10:4


Then Jesus Christ came on the scene                   Heb.9:11

Replacing goats, with grace                                 Heb.10:4

Man’s advocate, love’s go between                     Heb.9:15

To reach our fallen race                                       Heb.7:25


Christ blood released, from Moses’ law             Heb.8:13

From which rebellion grew                                 Heb.3:15

Yet since the temple’s curtain tore                     Mt.27:51

God’s covenant is new                                        Heb.6:12


The law became a shadow then                          Heb.10:1

Of things that were to be                                    Heb.8:5

The way to God was free again                          Heb.10:20

To such as you and me                                       Heb.2:17


The changes! Jesus’ blood has brought             Mt.11:25

Are good and light to bear                                 Mt.11:30

Yet who’ll believe the true report?                    Isa.53:1

God’s promises to share                                    Heb.4:1+10:36


Without the blood, is nothing done                  Heb.9:7

We’re still in filth and sin                                 Heb.9:25

Release; comes through The Father’s Son       Heb.9:14

God’s Holy Ghost within                                  Heb.10:17


Man’s temple copy had to burn                        Heb.9:7,24

So God’s could come to stand                          Heb.3:6

Now through The Spirit, man can learn

His Ways to understand                                    Heb.3:7-15


For truth to come! We first must seek

Must eat, what can’t be bought

But every day, not once a week

As Jesus said we ought.....     Heb.5:9.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
