 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Christ is the mediator,
Over a new covenant;
As an alleviator,
By being as eminent.
So that those who have been called,
Receives an inheritance;
Is eternal cancels where flawed,
If admitting penitence.
Since death occurs that redeems,
From transgressions committed;
That have gone to such extremes,
After God has acquitted.
For where a will is involved,
The death of the one who made;
Be established and resolved,
That Christ our Lord had paid.
A will takes effect at death,
Because not in force as long;
One made alive without breath,
When God has erased a wrong.
The first compact without blood,
Each commandment of the Law;
After deluge caused a flood,
For washing away each flaw.
Purified under the Law,
For almost everything;
Forgiving every flaw,
By shedding of blood will bring.
Heavenly things purified,
But a better sacrifice;
And why Christ was crucified,
So, we enter paradise.
Holy place not made with hands,
Which are copies of true things;
For God to honor commands,
Blessings in return that brings.
Christ offered as the High Priest,
But the blood was not His own;
That iniquities are released,
How sacrifices were known.
For Christ would have to suffer,
Offered once to bear much sin;
We confess He will buffer,
From the transgressions within.
