Reconciled

torn-veil

No longer do we need an ark of wood to save us from destruction.

Or a wooden pole upon which hung the perfect sacrifice…

No more lambs or doves or calves to be sacrificed

The knives of Priests now rest at peace…

No more blood poured from animals

No more burnt offerings or smoke fill the skies…as they die…

No more…No more…

Morning walks with God no longer delayed

At any time day or night our spirits can take flight

Into the very throne room with our God…

Whenever we like,

For on a hill many years ago

A man suffered and died…

Then from the darkened tomb He arose…

Light blinding, chasing away the doom

Life triumphed over, death…hell and the grave…

The perfect sacrifice was made…

Not so we could sit back and stare…

At the cruelty of a world in despair,

But so our lives would stand and testify…

Jesus is ALIVE…

Where are you God walkers…?

Where are you God talkers…?

Where are you men and women of the living God?

Stand Tall…Stand Strong…Come and walk with God,

You are not alone…

Bombard the gates of Hell, by prayer…

Sail over the raging seas…

Oceans span, the earth and sky…

Live today and do not lie…

Break forth in song and praise and be…

God walkers…God talkers…free!!!

Fellowship restored, complete.

Under the old covenant, the priest stands and ministers before the altar day after day, offering the same sacrifices again and again, which can never take away sins. But our High Priest offered himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins, good for all time. Then he sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand. There he waits until his enemies are humbled and made a footstool under his feet. For by that one offering he forever made perfect those who are being made holy. Hebrews 10:11-14 (NLT)
