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!”

“……and you say THE ONE never gets stained but walks right here?”

23-Mar-12: Hebrews 4:14—5:4

14 Since, then, we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession.

15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin.

16 Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“……and you say THE ONE never gets stained but walks right here?”

 

 

So did friends, all critters and unfolk alike, climb on and up.

So did all ears and Crookeye and BushNose and clutching hands seek again.

“Heighty-ho, sleightly-mo, on and on we go in dust and bramble to sup.”

“Mighty-wo, fighty-no, on and on we go in root stain and clump drain to strain.”

 

So did all friends march on under wing of Old Crow and Ugly Bird and Fly.

So did all friends tire and rest and mire and best all bars against their quest.

“Look ye, see ye, there is One all shining and clean pushing you bye and bye”

“What mean ye, Old Caw?” None stays clean here!””Oh , Yes, THE ONE does it best!”
