High Priest

White, Purity…
Blue, Heaven…
Gold, Majesty…
Purple, Royalty…
Scarlet, the Blood…
The bells I hear as he walks by…
Pomegranate seeds full of life, fruit, supplied…
High Priest sacrificed,
The lamb died…
Veil torn,
Now the presence of God
Inside…
Each one,
When you decide…
To walk in the presence of God!

Hebrews 2:17-18 New International Version (NIV)
For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.
I wrote this poem, with the colors of the High Priest’s garments in mind. The pomegranate symbolizing lives by the hundreds of seeds they contain and the sustenance they provide as a fruit. I thought some clarity was needed.

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
