Redemption Price Paid, Upon the CROSS,
Death Defeated, as He Stepped from Tomb
Satan left, Screaming, in His Eternal LOSS,
Second Death Eliminated from Reborn's Gloom.
To honor the day we pray thanking Jesus, for taking our place on the Cross,
I offer this question, and hopeful answer, to clear away some of our dross;
Sunday we celebrate the part of it all, that locks away Sin and loss,
His resurrection from grave on First Fruits Day, proves that He’s the Boss.
Who Killed My Lord My God?
By Arley Steinhour 042211/042218
Good Friday, Good Friday, the day we celebrate Jesus’ death,
Hanging on the Cross of curse, until He drew last mortal breath.
Tradition say’s He died on Friday, upon the Cross of Infamy,
Only the worst of criminals would die, while hung on a tree.
Warning, Temple Priestly types, ‘Three days and I’ll be back,’
There doesn’t seem to be a way, for three to fit a two day crack.
No matter, though, as that’s not the reason, I am addressing you,
Many peoples have been accused, of ending His Life so True.
Book of John, in Ten-Eighteen, ‘I lay it down myself, my power,’
Lay it down, and take it up again,’ Jesus would choose the hour.
Passover Lamb, on Temple Mount, played out the self same role,
A lamb don’t have Redemptive power, nor Pascal Sacrifice control.
The Pascal Lamb had played the part of Jesus, since Egyptian Exodus,
But, on that day, so long ago, Jesus hung by choice, for all of us.
No longer would man need a yearling lamb, to cover our mortal Sin,
Jesus died, this Royal once, for man’s Eternal Redemption to win.
Redemption isn’t automatic, oh no, as there be required activation,
We submit, to be owned by God, and be part of His Family Nation.
Reborn in Jesus, we open our heart, for Holy Spirit’s Fiery Baptism,
Belong to God, forever saved, protected from Satan and every ‘Ism.’
So, no one killed the ‘Son of God,’ not Jew, not Roman, not us,
He gave it up to save us, His Power, His Choice, Our Eternal Cleansing-Plus.
