The Last Sacrifice

gaillovesgodspoetry

The last Blood Sacrifice
To cleanse us from sin,
To reconcile us to God,
And restore us again.
The last Lamb without blemish
To be slain for sacrifice.
No more blood on the altar
After this final price.
The last High Priest
On the last Mercy Seat,
For death’s last victory
Was death’s defeat.
Christ was the last Lamb
To die on the altar.
He saved the sinners,
And stopped the slaughter.
No more pigeons.
No more turtledoves.
No more blood
Because of Love.
The last requirement
Is simply to believe.
The last action
Is simply to receive.

The Cleansing Sacrifice

gaillovesgodspoetry

Among You, Moses, the nobles, and elders,
I listen to all the details.
The ark, the tabernacle, the mercy seat,
The fillets, curtains, and veils.
Through measurements and guidance,
You give the instruction,
Along with the significance
Of the specific construction.
With Your chosen people,
You long to commune and abide.
But Holy must not be with unholy.
Uncleanness causes a divide.
You provide a way to be cleansed
Through offering a sacrifice.
The High Priest on the mercy seat
Prepares to pay the price.
Thank You, God, for making a way
To bring us back together.
Jesus became the sacrifice
To unite us forever.
