Sacrifice Your Precious Son (Hebrews 11:17-19)

“Go and take your precious son,
Born by your barren wife,
And on the hill that I will show,
Slay him in sacrifice.”
“Wait here to keep the caravan,
The boy and I alone,
Will go and will return to you,
When sacrifice is done.”
“There is no lamb, O father, why?
You tie my hands and feet.
I trust that you have heard the Lord,
Submitting willingly.”
“Lay not your hand upon the lad,
And stay your thirsty knife!
Behold the ram prepared for you,
Make him your sacrifice!”

“Go to earth, my precious Son,
And veil yourself in flesh.
And on the hill that I will show,
They will put You to death.”
“Wait here, while I will kneel and pray,
Keep watch and be alert,
For I will go away and die,
But surely I’ll return!”
“I am the lamb, O Father, see,
They pierced my hands and feet.
I trust you! I will drink this cup,
Though You’ve forsaken me.”
“Lay not your hand upon my Son!
Oh Death, release your prey!
Arise, Beloved, We have won,
Christ conquered Sin and Grave!”

Testing the Spirit (I John 4:1-6)

A million spirits, words and souls,
In contradiction claiming truth,
Each seeks to make your spirit whole,
But most will rape or murder you.
Then how discern their end intent,
Or how to sort the true from false?
Trust not in feeling or your bent,
Or what the popular exalt.
The truth is not in Hollywood,
Or on the streets of walls and wars,
The world brings only pain and blood,
When married to her many whores.
The truth is found in Jesus Christ,
And in His scripture guided all.
For He himself is Word of Life,
And brings salvation by His call.
So seek the truth in Him alone,
And test all spirits by His Word,
His Spirit shines when truth is shown,
For Scripture is all truth we heard.
