Yom Kippur   10 comments


Yom Kippur
To the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world
By Tim Shey

Death and Resurrection
Alpha and Omega
You shall know the truth

Offering for our sin
Friend of thieves and outcasts

Adam’s curse is broken
The truth shall set you free
One death for so many
Not a single bone was broken
Enemy is vanquished
Manifold temptations
Early you shall seek Me
No more tears and weeping
Today is now eternal

Leviticus 17:  11:  “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.”

Isaiah 53: 5:  “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

Revelation 1: 5:  “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.”

  1. That’s a beautiful poem, Tim.

  2. lovelifeandgod: Thank you for your comment. “Yom Kippur” is an acrostic poem; I wrote it last night after sundown (the beginning of Yom Kippur). I have scriptures from the Law, the Prophets and the New Testament (Leviticus, Isaiah, Revelation). Jesus the same yesterday, today and forever: Jesus was (I AM) before Yom Kippur; during his life on the planet he observed Yom Kippur; after his death and resurrection, he fulfilled and gave us something far greater than Yom Kippur: eternal life. (Hebrews 10: 1-18)

  3. Earlier this week (Monday) God told me that He would remove a certain thorn from my flesh… I prayed in thanksgiving for His Divine Mercy, repented and accepted the free gift He promised me, on Yom Kippur, He spoke again and said the atonement for my sin was complete and reminded me that Christ Jesus, His Begotten Son, Lord of my life, was/is the ultimate atonement for all sin by His Blood. Just wanted to share my miracle with you brother Tim… beautiful poem, to Jesus our Savior be all praise and glory forever more, AMEN!

  4. TeachX3: Praise the Lord! Sounds like the deeper work of the Cross—working out your salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2: 12).

    • AMEN. What I find to be so blessed is that He never forgets me… I’ve been a believer most all of my life, but of course, no where near ‘perfect’, and even though I mess up or start down the wrong path (one not within His Will), He does not leave me! GLORY!! The way He brought together Yom Kippur and The Cross for me to understand was really special… I am so thankful.
