“……and you say THE ONE HIGH PRIEST was sacrificed?”

25-Mar-12: Hebrews 5:5-10

also Christ did not glorify himself in becoming a high priest, but was appointed by the one who said to him,

“You are my Son,

today I have begotten you”;

6 as he says also in another place,

“You are a priest forever,

according to the order of Melchizedek.”

7 In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the one who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. 8 Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered; 9 and having been made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, 10 having been designated by God a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“……and you say THE ONE HIGH PRIEST was sacrificed?”

 

 

 

Once down at that so clear stream all friends grinned a-beam,

Once bumbled and tumbled feetsies all cleansies critters sighed a-bye.

“Oh,  now ye needs rest and think on quest, sing on quest of sweet dream,”

So did Old Crow and Ugly Bird and Bluesey Fly swarm to all in sigh.

 

 

“Now think of this thing, this one big thing, while ye rest, most crested.”

“Now ponder all yonder, way in the yonder of men’s killing the once-Babe, THE ONE!”

“What meanst, canst meanst, so mean ol’ winged ones?” cried friends so tested.

“Why, know ye not, ye be forever in dark shadow, dark bramble, if High Priest not so done!”

    I am so thankful that the Lord came and sacrificed Himself…. this became the basis of His priesthood. But also with this sacrifice He brought an end to the entire OT sacrificial system. Thank the Lrod for His once and forever sacrifice.

    This is really beautiful. I love it. God is our true redeemer of our fallen grace. Christ is the Rock on which we stand as a firm foundation of our faith in Him. To God be all the Glory, all the Honor and all the Praise! Amen!

              When we shine the Light into the dark places in other’s hearts, we do get shunned and ridiculed because they are ashamed! Blessed are the bonds of sisterhood we have here, Cat!

    Old Crow looked to Ugly Bird and poor unloved Blue Fly and Old Crow sighed. Tis the saddest of saddest things, thoses that calles themselves human, thoses that thinkest themes better and wiser that us unworldly folks. The hunted they hounded they tried poor grown babe, the light of the world, the one the one true hope! They beatest him they hurted him ………. they didest worse, but I canst tell ye ye as time not right and the one with the pen the opener of eyes granbee tis she not I ( Old Crow ) that tells this tale. But know ye my beloved unworldly ones my darling folkes you are are kinder holier and near to the one one babe..Him than any “Beautiful” or so they think human! xxxx

    Woo, willowdot–she sounds like my great-grandmother who ran three businesses through the age of 99, walked 3/4 mile the evening before she passed at the age of 102!

    “Now ponder all yonder, way in the yonder of men’s killing the once-Babe, THE ONE!”

    As awful as it was that these men tortured and killed the Author of life, we would not have “life” without what was done in evil. They really did not kill Jesus, as only Jesus had the power to allow Himself to die of course.

    Amazing how God always takes the bad and turns it into good isn’t it?

    Bless you Rose as you write these colorful escapades!! I’m trying to catch up…

    “Why, know ye not, ye be forever in dark shadow, dark bramble, if High Priest not so done!” Jesus is our true redeemer and your last line says it so perfectly. I am so thankful to not be in dark shadows and brambles forever! Blessings to you, my friend~xx
