Tag Archives: many died in the wilderness

HEBREWS 1 and 2:

To whom did the Father say, “Son.”

You are my Holy One…

Sent to earth

For human birth,

Announcing salvation has come?

Even in Moses’ time,

clues to this royal line…

Were there to see–

Everybody–

That to the search was inclined.

“Little less than the angels” Jesus,

Came as one of us…

Fulfilling Law–

Only He went that far–

Proving Father God as just.

Who are we to complain,

When  like Christ we endue pain…

Them who died

Totally denied

God though they saw His flame!

Will we believers

Be like those deceivers…

Having the form

But hearts not warmed,

By our holy Redeemer?

Escaping a righteous God,

Without Gospel shoes shod…

Were there snakes

Would we embrace

His comforting chastening rod?

Look to Him on the tree,

Bruised and suffered for thee…

Worship the King

By being,

Known as living the Same!
