Redeemed by the Lamb

Redeemed by the Lamb

By David Smith November 20, 2007

 

Inspired by Exodus 34:20 But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb: and if thou redeem him  not, then shalt thou break his neck. All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall appear before me empty.

 

To be redeemed by the lamb

The jack ass stubborn for sure

The lamb is the sacrifice

So the ass can endure

The lamb is the substitute for that stubborn creature

The symbol of humanity; We are that feature

And so the Lamb, Christ is the one

The Lamb of God; His begotten son

He is our substitute so we can live

The Lamb of God, our soul to give

Without a lamb; the donkey is dead

A broken neck to separate from his head

We, as the donkey, are dead in sin

Without the Lamb of God; to purify us within

To bring to the Table, to the father, above

Our affection, in worship, for the LORD that we love

That is revealed in Exodus Thirty-four

Illustrations of Christ

There is so much more

The bible is deep

Illustrations are grand

The Holy Spirit sheds new light to understand
